  2. Check our website : redgrassgames.com Hi everyone, You buy the best brushes, the best paints and the best miniatures, but when it comes to the palette itself, you have to use kitchen parchment paper or wax paper on a plate.

  3. Hi All, I'll be posting WIP and finished crews revolving the Ten Thunders faction, and hopefully get some helpful tips and tricks from the more experienced painters out there. As an introductory, and something that will be the main focus for a week or two, I'll be posting my progress for Lucas McCabe's crew, the Relic Hunters. Just primed the whole crew white, and started on the flesh base for them. Almost done Dismounted McCabe, and its mostly just the basing for him. I'm liking painting Heroic scale, much less constrained by the tiny details of 25mils. (EDIT: Didn't even noticed he had a blotch on his chin. Fixed it!)
  4. This is my very first forum thread on any game I have ever played, so we'll Malifaux has sparked some new in me. So this is where I'll post my painted models and other Malifaux related art.
  5. I will keep updating this thread with my work as it gets done. Here are some finished models to get things started. You can also see updates on my Malifaux painting blog: http://gray2color.blogspot.com/ The good Dr. Grimwell Mr. Mercury (Performer) The damaged but deadly Phiona Gage! The Latigo Crew Box The Sonnia Criid crew box Stay tuned for updates!
  6. So I haven't painted in so long that I feel like I've forgotten how to....I know there are plenty of tutorials on techniques out there, but I was wondering - any step-by-step tutorials or blogs on painting Malifaux minis out there? I know there are heaps on some of the bigger/older systems, but any on Malifaux? Just to get a real idea on how a look was achieved. Unfortunately I have Vallejo Game Colour - the colours are a bit too garish for my liking for malifaux. I think all the best work tends to be muted colours, but I'm not buying a stack of new paints for that, so I'll need to search through the painting forum for pics of minis I like with garish colours
  7. Hey, thought I'd post some pictures of stuff I've been working on and also can serve as my commission portfolio. So to start things off, I painted up the new death marshals today for my tara crew, they're a mid range paint job with 3-4 highlights on each model. I'm tempted to try and do some source lighting on them, but not sure how to go about doing it. I don't have access to an airbrush and i'm not a fan of the watering down method. not sure about drybrushing it on, although i find that tends to be the best result for a smooth transition of light. Let me know what you guys think and I'll upload some more things when they're done. SK
  8. I know very little about the game of Malifaux itself, having never played it. The aesthetic of the game is absolutely amazing though. I'm very much a novice hobbyist/painter but I think I'd like to try my hand at some Malifaux models. Which 4-5 models could be considered "easier" in terms of building and painting and so could be good for a beginner hobbyist. Faction isn't so much a concern yet. Thank you in advance for any input.
  9. Hi all! My wife and I are just getting back into Malifaux after a long hiatus. After diving through our collection we discovered quite a few of the new plastic kits we never really got around to doing anything with. In particular, one set had a certain brilliance that called to me from it's foam tray... Dark Debts! After a glut of terrain bashing, it's time to finally get Mr Lynch ready to rock! I've always been a bit nutty about painting for skirmish games- especially Malifaux! In particular, I feel like it's so important to really make the rich background of the characters shine through! Dark Debts is a fantastic opportunity to get back into the swing of storytelling with models. Mr Lynch and crew have a dark (heh) background that really gets told through each piece. I started with basing the models, and after a *lot* of reading felt pretty comfortable with the story of Lynch and the Hungering Darkness. Below you'll find pics of the crew standing proud on their new bases. I'm hoping to have everything painted up over the next couple weeks, and I'll drop in new photos as we go along. *****As a note, the ideas aren't entirely original! Google Image Search was incredibly helpful in providing inspiration. Something I've always loved about the miniatures community over "fine art" is everyone's willingness to share and teach!
  10. Hi Folks, Am fairly new to Malifaux and am loving the models. I want to have a crew that looks half decent when I play (I am not the most gifted painter...) as I have a habit of buying stuff faster then I paint it. I have got on fine with the clothing layers but was wondering if anybody has any tips for painting swords? I use citadel paints thanks in advance
  11. About two month ago was my last note about lowrez painting, and now I have some more better photos of my Malifaux miniatures. I'm not painting as fast as I'm translating for Russian MalifauxWiki. however I have some new in this gallery - footed McCabe, Master Queeg, Malifaux Child. Also I was taking part in coloring competition of Taelor. and made my first digital art with graphic tablet.
  12. Hello everyone, I've recently acquired a dayglow Kirai set, I'm just wondering if anyone else has painted up some day glow minis? I'm thinking on inking a fair few of them, specifically the spirits. and then part painting the "human" models like Kirai and Lost lover. but leaving parts unpainted and just inked. So a few specific questions; 1) Do you have to undercoat the day glows before painting. 2) if you do have to undercoat I'm assuming either liquid mask or hand undercoating. 3) any pictures of what anyones done?
  13. Hello! During the Scale Model Challenge (http://www.scalemodelchallenge.com , October 1 and 2) I will give demo's on the second day.

  14. Hey guys. I have been sharing my workings in painting my Kirai Crew in the Wyrd Facebook Group, but i thought this would also be a nice place to collect feedback, advice, etc. I can then tell you all about my fluff behind my decisions. Hope you like them.
  15. Hi all. I am considering getting an airbrush and would like some suggestions on what brands I should consider. A kit (plug and play) would be great but not essential. Cheers
  16. 8/28/16 Start Time 12:30pm Entry: Purchase of a Master Crew box Players will purchase a Master Box of Malifaux and have 5 hours to fully assemble their Master Box Crew. The players will be given two weeks to fully paint their crew and return on 9/11/16 to participate in a 35 SS tournament using the gaining grounds format. Players' crews are limited to the models included in the Master Crew boxed purchased on 8/28/16. This is a great chance for new players to try out the game and get to know their new crews. This will also provide an interesting challenge for those veteran players who have had their eye on a new master. Where: Drawbridge Games 1003 Castle Shannon BLVD Pittsburgh, PA 15234 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/drawbridgegames/ Phone: 412.254.6151 Email: info@drawbridgegames.com Prizes will be based on participation, but will include first and best painted. If you have a master that you would prefer purchasing please contact Enrico of Drawbridge Games at 412-254-6151 and we'll try to reserve or order your Master Crew Box of choice. For any questions PM lostnemesis or contact through Drawbridge Games.
  17. Hi there! I am pretty new to this forum and I decided to share my pretty sloppy models and just rant and rave about my current projects with you guys. This thread will be full of pictures and I hope you don't mind scrolling through the (future) pages to see more of my progress and finished models as I go along. First off I wanted to show you guys my little Seamus crew. I have plenty of additions but these are the first six finished models (definitely more to come). I wanted something really odd and awesome for my models. Seamus, crazy as he is, suggested I use something flashy and bright and he got a real kick out of the idea of walking around in bright orange while on a night's prowl to 'recruit' more belles. (Side note: Here is a tutorial on how I paint undead skin!)
  18. Helo - at least I have some time to get my crews together. We are currently playing campaign but I want to make 2 crews of 50 SS to play in some tournaments and I want them to be painted. In order to do this I need help in establishing what would be good models to paint at the start so I can start playing 50SS format as soon as possible. The 1 crew is Lynch: Lynch: Woke up with the hand and another 2SS upgrade (possibly rising sun) Huggy - 0 pts (Minibeat stick, CA source - free and i can swap 2 upgrade to what i think my opponent will bring) Graves - 8 SS (movement shananganas and small beatstick) - I can swap him for scion of black blood if i suspect heavy condition game Doppleganger - 7 SS (universal swiss knife) - for those moments I desperatly need to start the turn Beckoner - 7 SS (usefull for lure and giving out briliance) - Lure is important in this set up as is Iluminated - 7 SS (mini beatstick) Iluminated - 7 SS (mini beatstick) Stiched Together - 6 SS (I can swap it for something cheeper if it isnt usefull) Terror Tot - 4 SS (I can swap this for deplated IF it suites the shame pool better) The 2 crew is Lilith Lilitih: beckon malifaux and wicked mistress Prmiordial Magic - 2 ss Nekima - 13 ss Mature Nephilim - 11 ss Lilithu - 7 ss Waldgaist - 6 ss Terror Tot - 4 ss Terror Tot - 4 ss So is any thing inherantly wrong with those two set ups ? Of course I will try to learn to use different models but would painting this 2 crews got ma off to a good start when thinking about competative play with neverborn ?
  19. So, I've been building my painting skills over the past several month. Trying more and more advanced techniques. (I miss the days of base/wash/dry brush...) But like everything I do, I have fallen into a bad habit. I've started practicing "two-brush blending", and I find more often than not, my second brush is being wet not in the rinse cup, but in my mouth... Is this dangerous? I'm assuming acrylic is non-toxic, and I'm hoping the medium is, too, but it's not like there's an ingredients label on the .4 oz bottles.... Is there any brush-lickers out there that have been doing it for a long time and seen no adverse effects? Or should I find a way to break this habit now!?!
  20. Hey everyone I was looking through some tutorials and the people showing off their skills usually use a base or structure to held the miniature up in order to get a easier grip (and no fingers on the miniature itself). Do you guys glue the miniature to the temporary painting base? Do you "nail" them with a very small piece of steel? How do you do it? I can only imagine the miniature being glued by the feet, for instance. Thanks
  21. Hello Souther California Malifaux players! Local Henchman Victor here... I will be at Game Empire in Pasadena, CA on Tuesday nights at 7:30 ready to run Malifaux demo games for you and your friends! Anyone who is interested can show up and learn to play. Now I do have friends and family that love me and want to spend time with me when I'm free (I think?) so if you want to let me know ahead of time that you're interested that would be helpful, but by no means necessary. Tuesday is our intro board game night, too, so there is plenty of fun to be had in addition to Malifaux! Thursday nights are hobby night at the store, so you can come on by and get some of those crews painted-- with expert advise from staff and fellow gamers if you want to up your painting skills! There will be two opportunities to play in Through the Breach one-shots the first Saturday of May. Stay tuned for a new topic once sign up goes live. You can get in touch with me here if you have any questions or comments! -Victor E. Game Empire Pasadena, 1795 E Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91106
