  2. Painting Gremlins... ;-)

    Got my Gremlins now. I have Wongs Crew, Zipps Crew, McTavish and Burt. I've assembled and undercoated Wong and his Crew and found my paints are mostly knackered, some can be saved though. My question is... Which paints are the best value, good to paint with and give good results. I always used GW paints before but they're not as good value as they used to be and all the colours have changed in the years since I painted before... lol

  6. Doublc's Art Box

    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.
  7. I will keep updating this thread with my work as it gets done. Here are some finished models to get things started.

  8. An odd question.....

    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. 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
  10. Dark Debts Project Thread

    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!
  11. 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
  12. HighRez Painting

    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.
  13. Painting dayglow models

    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?

  15. Airbrush recommendations please

    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

  17. 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 ?
  18. Am I Gonna Die From Brush Licking?

    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!?!
  19. 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
  20. Pierced Hearts Painting Contest

    Time for an other painting contest! Not an "official" Malifaux event, but the locals loved it, so time for another one! To join in, you must join the Facebook event and followed the rules there. https://www.facebook.com/events/197292383958897/
  21. Hello!

    I've decieded I'll start a blog on this here site, it seems to make sense being as most of my hobby focuses around Wyrd games. I also run a blog on Wordpress, so it'll be the same post as on here, if I like posting here more I might move over altogether, but will see for now. First up, a look back on my hobby for the past year seems to be a decent place to start..... I've been meaning to do a little look back on what I've been up to last year in both gaming and painting, as much as for myself as for the blog. It being a fair old while since my last post I thought I'd better. Thinking back to the start of 2015 gaming wise I was still playing a lot of Molly and got my highest placing of the year at the leauge of Extraordinary Henchman in January (6/30). I played in four tournaments from Jan to March, LoEH sat and sun, Vapnartak and Lemonentry, using Molly in 3 and Viks in 1. I then had a massive tournament hiatus not going to another one until September, playing a lot of Guildball in the time between as well as Malifaux. I sold most of my Resser collection in the spring and then learnt how to play Kirai, using her in tournaments for the rest of the year. Attending From the Shadows, Drunken Monkey, Into the Quarantine Zone and the UKGT 2015. Best result from these was probably the UKGT, finishing 32/88, winning 4/7 games. Favourite tournament of the year was the UKGT, it was an awesome weekend, as weekend events tend to be, 7 great games and the social side was amazing, not least because the of the awesome night out on the Saturday. I must say 2 day tournaments are by far my favourite because of the total immersion you enter into, but these are few and far between for me due to family commitments etc which makes them all the more special. So a total of 8 Malifaux tournaments in 2015 which is fairly low considering 2014 was 10. I have a feeling there'll be more for me this year. Non-malifaux and Guildball gaming consisted of family gaming, Puppet Wars (fricking love this game) a game of Dreadfleet and the usual board style games, Forbidden Island, Dobble, Takenoko, Small World, Ticket to Ride, Love Letter, Zombicide etc. Painting has been pretty lacklustre this year for me I think. The year started with me finishing of a 30K Worldeaters army commission Another Commission in the form of a high level Fisherman team for Guildball After this I decided I was giving up commision painting for several reasons so focused back on painting up my own models. I Painted up a couple of Puppets Also a full Puppet crew, in a week, to play Malifaux in the GT Did some Dreadfleet terrain and other bits (not finished) Painted and textured some boards to make a gaming table Made myself a paint rack Put together two Guildball teams, made a goal and painted one model Painted some random Malifaux models that needed finishing And pretty much finished painting the whole of my Kirai crew So actually looking at it like that I've just convinced myself I haven't been too unproductive with the painting/hobby in 2015, I just haven't painted many Malifaux crews I guess. Awards for painting in tournaments? Well, I entered into 4/8 best painted competitions of the tournaments I went to (really seems like more than that, actually shocked that it's that low!) Of the 4, I won best painted once with my Viks crew and placed 2nd in best painted trinity of models. 1/4 and 1 2nd place isn't bad at all, happy with that. Next up I think I'll write a post on what I'll be planning on doing in the coming year and my aims/goals for it, so until then! Bye
