    Monthly painting challenge - June

    Hello all, After a turbulent May which distracted me from painting for personal reasons, I am determined to carry on with this challenge. @Franchute I'll obviously use my first mulligan for May, I'll post pictures of my pledge for this month later today hopefully. Cheers, 'Brown

    Seconded. Painting nice highlights on large flat areas of material is something I've yet to master, and I feel the lack of that particular skill when painting Guild!

    @Franchute, here are my completed models for April: Field reporter: Thrall: Monster hunter proxy: Monster hunter proxy 2: For a total of 25ss. Painting the thrall's base and static grass/varnishing will happen tonight, along with prepping models for this month. As an aside, I've just tipped over 50% of my Malifaux collection painted, so this painting challenge is working! Have a great month ahead all, 'Brown

    I'm taking things down to the wire this month. Witchling Thrall is finished, everything else is one or two little bits away from done. Will post pictures on the 30th! Great mage BTW!

    Monthly Painting Challenge - March

    Apologies for my omission @Franchute. 40ss for the 5 models I originally pledged (Lucius, The Scribe, Doppelganger, Tannen & Sokolov) - 52 if you count the guild hounds too. But I only signed up for the enforcer level pledge (16-30ss), so I'm happy to just count Lucius, The Scribe, Doppelganger & Tannen to get me to 30ss. Whatever fits best! Thanks!

    Monthly Painting Challenge - March

    Ok, got everything finished (in March I promise!) - actually had two days to spare to base & varnish. I had enough time to spare to complete the guild hounds that I had hanging around at the 'sprayed black and drybrushed metal' stage. Not entirely happy with these; I know I can do better. I'm still waiting for Amazon to deliver my daylight lamp, so I'm struggling to paint under a yellow light source several feet from my painting table. The main effect of this is that highlights are less crisp and end up duller than they appear as I'm applying them. I need to practise some more for sure, but I'm convinced that the lighting is a factor. Oh well, maybe next month. It's not like I'm running out of models to experiment on! Good luck to everyone for the coming month! 'Brown

    @Viruk & @Franchute just like to express my best wishes for both your little ones' speedy recoveries. I have two young children myself, I can't imagine what that must be like. I hope and trust that they will make full recoveries x

    What's your new hotness? What has you excited?

    That's awesome. Thanks very much for explaining!

    What's your new hotness? What has you excited?

    I can see how you'd drag models to you with a beckoner and a doppel copying the lure (and that seems to be the Ply tactic for my belle-toting colleagues), but I can't see how 1 AP from Lucius gets you to a point where you can get the doppel into their faces turn one. Could you possibly explain it using very small words, and maybe a crayon drawing to illustrate? Thank you very much in advance

    The only one I'm sold on Master/Strat wise so far is Perdita into Symbols. Not only does Nino's spotter ability work wonderfully for protecting your symbols, it comes paired with Punish the Weak, which should always be achievable with Perdita Only having to pick a crew to deal with one scheme (and standing near some symbols) helps this bear of very little brain...

    Bit of a WIP on Lucius. So far the only thing I've completed is his mask. This is my first attempt at gold NMM. On reflection (no pun intended!) there are probably easier shapes to practice NMM on!

    Monthly painting challenge - February

    Thank you For dead skin I use Vallejo pale flesh, and wash with a mix of GW flesh wash/GW purple wash. Then just apply layers of Vallejo pale skin thinned with Lahmium medium. For slightly fresher dead I use Carroburg Crimson wash instead of purple in the wash mix.

    Monthly painting challenge - February

    Hi all! OK, a belated update on progress so far: Nurse (6ss): Papa Loco (7ss): Drowned (6ss): For a total of 19ss. Life has, as always, conspired to keep me away from the painting table this month, and I'm up against it to get the rest of this month's pledge done. Still resolving to get them all finished though. I promise the models above look better in real life than they do in the pictures; they're not quite as blobby as these images suggest. I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet & get a daylight lamp; at the moment I'm painting on the coffee table in the living room about 8 feet from the ceiling light, and it's amazing how different the models look in that environment to when I take the photos under a brighter light. Cheers all!
