  1. Thanks! I did white first then added the black and then the other colours on top. I did Perdita last and I think it turned out the best. I airbrushed the white on for good think coverage first, then took my 3 bristle brush and carefully added everything else on.
  2. I've fallen way behind with updates for this blog and due to a photobucket re-shuffle the links are broken. I will fix the links soon. @iamfanboy all my pics are also on my instagram here https://www.instagram.com/haychdee/
  3. I'm red and number 18 on reserves Haydn Smith
  4. I've double posted like a melon so I may as well edit to ask: Will CGG be open on the Friday evening like last year for pre games or an enforcer brawl?
  5. Can we put forward Team Beefeater as well please, should be the 6 of us booked on now.
  6. Can I pop my name down on the reserve please Mike. Thanks Haydn
  7. Hoping to get down to this with a few of my team mates as well. Had a quick read of the pack and one sentence mentions that it's enforcer for best painted but in the prize section is says it's fro 3 minions. Both sound good but was just wondering which one it'll be? Thanks Haydn
  8. Sorry for the delay but payment sent through now Cheers Haydn

  10. Lovely work all round! Especially like the Exorcists cloak, McMourning and the NMM on Miss Step is top notch! Look forward to seeing more!
  11. Hey all, @WalkingInBlack Thanks for your continuing support and to answer your question I do actually do commissions. I mainly do sculpting commissions but if it's the right kind of project (i.e. something I'd enjoy) I am willing to pick up my brushes as well. @Alessandro Thank you very much @Joooohan I agree on both points. Work is already underway on fleshing out the family (check below) and I will be adding a few less thematic options in order to learn some better tactics. Display board wise I totally agree, the wall definitely needs a little something, originally I was going to add posters and notices. However the board was made in a rush as I needed it for the tournament so it didn't get the attention it deserved. I am starting work on a new one ready for UK Nationals though which will be getting a bit more effort poured into it. @sigmar3 Thank you. I've really enjoyed putting these together but the only problem now is thinking up what to do for the next project. @ringsnake Thanks for the kind feedback. You've just got to keep trying with conversions for Malifaux and then eventually you'll get the hang of it. I'd done quite a few other bits before I attempted this crew and I've been sculpting for 10 years or so. Regarding Abuela, I actually played around with a skull type design for Senor Hodor but I couldn't get it to look right. I may revisit him later and try adding a few more details. And to answer your question, the sheet in my spray booth was actually a timetable to make sure I got everything completed in time for the Scottish GT. @Averlorn Thank you, there's a little update with this post but there should be a few bits popping up between now and November. @sockwithaticket Thank you very much indeed and cheers for following this project through. So another small update of what I'm working on at the moment... I've fallen a bit behind (as usual) with this project but I'm starting to get things back on track. I have until November 19th to: - Convert and paint the peacekeeper - Convert and paint the Executioner - Touch up the current crew (mainly the NMM and freehand) - Design, make and paint up a new display board So time once again is against me but hopefully I can battle through and get everything ready on time. Just as long as I'm not planning on moving house anytime soon....ah yes I also move house next month. But on with a little update... First off we have the WIP of the Peacekeeper. The concept behind this guy is that he is a walking DdlM alter. I did a bit of research into the alters they offer in the actual festival and I loosely transferred it onto the model. I didn't include everything that would traditionally be on there, I focused more on the figure, candles, flowers and a bowl of incense (missing from pic). And next up we have the WIP of the Executioner. So this guy has had a bit of a re-pose to have his claws more down by his sides. And then I also decided to put him in a big duster coat with will look pretty similar to Santiago's. And that's all for now. I'll post up some more once I've made some decent progress. C&C welcomed as always hd
  12. It's been far too long again without an update so here goes... Thankfully I did manage to get these guys all painted up for the Scottish GT and I'm pleased to say that the hard work paid off as I managed to walk away with the Best Painted award. Aside from that, the Scottish GT was probably the best tournament I've been to yet, very well run, great prize support and met a whole bunch of friendly people. Anyways, on with the update! So as mentioned the crew is finished for now and they currently look like this (Apologies on the not so great photo, my new set up should be on its way soon) And I also got their display board sorted which looks like this (Again, not a great photo, sorry) So this was meant to be the crew done. I was gonna draw a line under these guys and move on to the next project ready for the UK nationals. But, being the usual sub par timekeeper I am I've not really left myself a whole lot of time to order a new crew, convert them up and get them painted. So now the plan is to reinforce Perdita and co with a few models and then go back over each member to add more detail and freehand etc. My latest order is on the way so over the next or so I'll be making a start on wave 2 for this crew and hopefully by the time Nationals rolls around I will have a better photography set up. Until then, all C&C welcome hd
  13. Anyone heading down from Nottingham area or passing J27 on the M1? Happy to chip in for fuel. Just prefer to car share over travelling solo
