We're currently updating the site and a few things may run slow or not as expected at the moment. Give us a day or two to get everything sorted out and changed up if you would.

One of the new things you'll see about are the 'sticky notes' which you will occasionally see from the site Admins if something important shows up or is newsworthy, or if you happen to be in one of our many beta testing groups giving you an additional heads up when something new needs to be looked at or sorted.

You can send these amongst yourselves as well if you wish, just don't abuse it. 

Thanks for your patience!

@RikLok Very Good idea using Skinks as alternatives. it seems as if you have used Army Painter? Since the models are really glossy but I think a good coat of satin varnish will help! Love the vibrant colours on the skinks :-D

I always use this wood dark varnish, army painter is too expensive for me. I will apply matt varnish when the bases are finished :)

Nice pigs!

This month I finished Toshiro and Yan lo that I had already started, then did:

 

Izamu, Chiaki, Soul Porter, 2 komainu, McCabe on horse, dismounted McCabe, Sidir Archibal, 2 wastrels, Luna, Dawn Serpent. Pics are in my 2017 Monthly Painting album:

I think my Izamu came out really good, probably the best quality job I've done so far. Sidir and Luna were my first experiment with washes, Sidir came out way better than Luna but I only did it on his coat vs Luna i just did her whole body. I love this monthly challenge, it's definitely helping me get to be a better painter.

Here is my Luther and Genbu for May.  Total SS = 19.  My photo skills continue to disappoint me---I spent a lot of time on Luther's eyes to give them what I thought was a good blood-shot look (inspired by Omnicarnivore), but this does not show up.  I have the photo both mostly working, but I think a small tripod is the next step.

99 if you count both McCabes together, 114 if you count them separately.

Some say she was horribly scarred in a fight with Resurectionisits, others that she used to be an Archanist who hides her same behind a mask until all of her ex-compatriots are destroyed. A very cautious few whisper that she wears the mask in homage to her unrequited crush, Lucius Mattherson. whatever the reason, the porcelain baby doll mask just adds to the intimidation one feels when face to face with Sgt. Snow.

For May I finished The Swamp Mother's Brood; 3 Sluirds (7 each for 21 SS), 4 Gupp Swarms (I broke the normal 3 Gupps per base into 4 swarms so 4 points each for 12 SS) and the Governor's Proxy 3 ss. Total 40 ss.

I had a busy month, but I was able to finish a model just in time as I finished Titania yesterday for a total of 15ss.

P.s.: I'm not able to downsize the pictures so they're always huge. Anyone knows how to change this?

P.p.s.: I just resized the image itself so now it's better.

Your base looks great but I worry about it effecting playability. How do you work around that?

I noticed indeed that the model is very top-heavy (duh). What I did with my warhammer miniatures was stick some pieces of lead underneath the base. But the malifaux bases have like this extra circle so thats a bit annoying, so I just filled the entire base with putty, adding some weight making it ok to play. But just to ensure some extra stability I'm planning to add some real rocks to the base and since the balsa wood and the miniature are relatively light this makes the model surprisingly stable.

Alright, less than I hoped for, this happy bunch:

The Miss Ery is far from complete (at least the base is probably finished), but with Primordial Magic (2SS), Lelu (7SS) and Lilitu (7SS) I achieved a total of 16SS for May...

And, finally getting a breather from work to post, here is what ended up coming out of my May.

2 Wardens (12ss), Miss Alt Guild Sergent (6ss), Trapper (6ss), Doppleganger (7ss), Sonia Avatar as the Brutal Emissary (10ss), and two Changelings converted from the creepy children and carnivorous flowers from the Mysterious Emissary (8ss) fro a total of 49ss.

For June, actually going to do some Outcasts, now that I've escaped from Lucius' commanding presence.

Side point, I'm really interested in thoughts on the Brutal Emissary here. I was trying to make Sonia herself look like the blue/white center of a flame, but I'm worried she looks too icy and I'm not sure how to fix that. Any constructive help would be appreciated.

@Chou No need to apologize for the pictures!  But, if you want to apologize for not giving me the SS total for what you painted, I will accept that one.  ;)

@Monomatana  What level are you pledging at?  Given your 80 SS painted for May, do you want to jump in at the top level of Emissary for >30 SS/month?  The next lower level is Master at 16--30 SS/month.

Note that by joining in month three of the painting challenge, you have used your two Mulligans, i.e., everyone can miss painting their goal for two months, but on strike three, they are out of the challenge. 

Welcome aboard!

I wanted to be in your thoughts... :P. So, Wendigo (3SS) + 2 Acolytes (2*7 = 14SS) + 2 cannon fodd... I mean, Freikorpsmen (2*5 = 10 SS) for a total of 27 SS. :)
