    Thanks for such beautiful comment I plan to start entering contests next year (this year I've won Iron Painter so I treat it as good kickstarter :D) and I hope to use many Malifaux minis for dioramas. I really enjoy Wyrd style and diversity, miniatures are so well made and present different themes and poses, hey are just perfect. For now I plan to make diorama with one of the Smugglers (the one with aligator as his backpack) and maybe some gators lurking around him. Tbh I can't wait to get my Wyrd goodie bag from the contest, just to see what kind of minis I'll get and think about all the scenes and paintings I can create with them. Seriously, I love so much Wyrd's creations ------ I have some more of my paintings:

    Obsidian Oni (6ss) done! It looks "good enough" at arms length. Colour scheme rocks. No complaints if I ever end up playing itMetallics are as hard to photograph as ever. Didn't do anything too fancy with them, some ink glazes for shadows and stippled highlights + edge highlights where relevant. Will definitely stay away from stone/golem type models for the next few months

    Greetings, fellow painters! So, as I was looking through my unopened / unpainted / incomplete collection, and I happened upon a project that I never quite started, despite all sorts of good plans to do so. I decided that 2019 was the time to ressurrect the idea. This year, alongside the hundreds of Malifaux miniatures to paint, I’m going to paint twelve miniatures. Nothing too exciting there. However, these twelve miniatures will all be the same miniature (a GW beastman), and I’ll be painting them in twelve different ways. https://i.imgur.com/ChGzfwm.jpg So, once a month, you’ll see a new version of the same beastman. To try to get a bit of comparability, I shall be using the closest possible versions of the same colour scheme each time. Obviously, different techniques need different colours. So, wish me luck on this little adventure. Hopefully, I can finish it, and even make it a worthwhile read. Caedrus!

    In the end I went with purple gray and I'm quite happy with the result. Not only did I not need my Mulligan for the first month (yay!) but I even finished with 4 weeks to spare. It won't be a habit... I even think it might be my best model to date...

    So, my pledge for January was going to be the Hodgepodge Effigy (4SS). It is part of my Shelf of Shame: But then, a package arrived just before Christmas. I won an auction, and for $40USD, I scored this: I could not believe my good fortune. So now, who knows what else I'll be painting! Have a great January, and 2019! Caedrus.

    @Purple Mist I like dark turquoise for the silurids. This is a great idea. I might steal it from you in the future if you dont mind I finished the Forgotten Marshall for 7 more soulstones, putting me at 14ss: @Boomstick @Viruk @bedjy @Chou @Rikk @Aa7 @PetitDalek @wobbly_goggy How are you doing this last month? How many soulstones have you managed to paint?

    Hey everyone Somewhat new to Malifaux, made a few purchases in 2012 but have moved about 5 times since and never got around to painting the Perdita and Lilith boxes I got and now cant find them. I got the Army Painter big box for Christmas and decided to jump back in and buy a faction box. To help stay on track Im signing up here at a minion level to keep me motivated to paint at least one model a month. First up for January...Mah Tucket which I guess since its a master will count as 15SS. Pictures incoming once I get the post on Jan 3rd. - Gertz

    All right, all right, all right. Now Wyrdos, Waldo was complaining about the cold recently. To be fair, everywhere on Earth is colder than where he’s from, so there’s only so much we can do. After getting him a heated blanket, a space heater, an ugly sweater, a winter hat, socks, hocks (horn socks), and wing-warmers, he still complained about the temperature. Not everything can (or should) be set on fire, Waldo. So, to suggest things could always be worse, we’ll be talking about just how cold things can get. Today we're going to talk about one of the new Neverborn Masters, the ice cold Euripides. As you can see, Euripides has a fairly typical stat line, though he makes up for it with a whole lot of Health, which is appropriate for a Master on a 50mm base. His first Ability, The Old Ways, is actually the thematic Ability for the entirety of the Savage Crew. It allows them to flip cards from their Discard Pile instead of their Fate Deck. This is a powerful Ability, as it effectively allows a Savage model to get double use out of good cards, albeit at the cost of a bit of damage. Euripides also possesses Hard to Kill, which is another fairly common Ability that is shared by most of his Crew. It works in the same way as its M2E counterpart by giving Euripides a bit of protection against being killed by damage. Intuition is a nod to Euripides’ role as a shaman and seer, and it allows him to look at (and rearrange) the top three cards of his Fate Deck as soon as he Activates. This gives him a great degree of foresight in just how he should act on his Turn, especially when combined with The Old Ways, letting him play cards out of his discard pile in lieu of using cards from his deck. Future Sight is a defensive trigger that further builds upon Euripides’ precognitive abilities. While it doesn’t do anything in particular to protect him in the present, being able to knock Crow cards out of a Resurrectionist’s hand or to deny a Guild their high Rams can certainly have an impact on their future actions. Finally, Euripides has Entomb in Ice, a powerful Ability that allows him to transform Killed models into Ice Pillars, all while denying Markers to his opponent. In M3E, if a Marker doesn’t state what size it is, it defaults to 30mm, so our Ice Pillars are 30mm pieces of terrain that block line of sight and can’t be moved through. Their Destructible Trait means that a nearby model can use an action to destroy the Marker, which prevents them from permanently sealing away portions of the board (and thus allows us to use more of them). On the back of Euripides’ card, we see that he’s pretty good at pummeling people with his Huge Fists, which is appropriate for a giant such as himself. His Rake the Eyes trigger gives him a bit of control over his opponent’s Fate Deck, and the Sweeping Strike trigger allows him to deal Blast damage with a wide swing of doom. It’s worth noting that Sweeping Strike is only really effective against enemy models; in M3E, attacks made against friendly models don’t generate Blast Markers, which helps to keep models honest. No more attacking a low-defense friend to drop non-resistible damage on the enemies standing near him. Euripides’ Tactical Actions all revolve around Ice Pillars. First and foremost is Rune-Etched Ice, which creates Ice Pillar Markers and then forces nearby enemies to either leap out of the way or suffer some damage. His Triggers give him the option of summoning additional Pillars or forcing models further away from the Pillar, making them great at clearing an area. Glacial Shove, however, is where Euripides really comes into his own. It allows him to grab an Ice Pillar and throw it across the board like a bowling ball, damaging anyone too slow to move out of the way. Between the Ice Pillars that he’s creating with Entomb in Ice and the ones created by Rune-Etched Ice, this savage giant should have plenty of ammunition to chuck at his enemies. The final touch on this frozen package is Reflected Visage. By catching a glimpse of Euripides’ face in an Ice Pillar, all the models around it become Distracted, which gives them a on an opposed duel. Of course, if Euripides hits his Shattering Surprise trigger, the visage they see ends up being the real thing as he bursts forth from the Ice Pillar like a frozen Kool-Aid Man. Oooh yeah! Euripides brings a different to the Neverborn and Malifaux as a whole, and he’s already quite fun to toss onto the table (especially against Rasputina – so many Ice Pillars)! That’s it for Waldo’s Weekly in 2018! Waldo will be back January 9th, 2019. As it turns out, Waldo is actually a pretty big fan of the holidays, and he promises to be tame while we’re gone. Hopefully the office isn’t a pile of cinders come the new year.

    Caedrus, reporting in for (probably) the final time this year! @Franchute: I have painted 20SS to date. I have painted 4 Mindless Zombies [8SS]; a Hollow Waif [5SS]; and 1 Freikorps Trapper [7SS]. Lots of interesting details on these metal mindless zombies. A few odd proportions, but lots of fun to paint. The anatomist in me is wondering why the small bowel is so far posterior...You're thinking about this too much, Caedrus. I had some fun trying sheer fabric over undead skin. Was it successful? You be the judge. Why is this (proxy) Mindless Zombie wearing lingerie? Who knows. I think I'll have to repaint that back metal plate. On the other hand, I liked messing around with this base. There's a camouflage-esque effect on the blue fabric near the greenery. I was messing around with glazing in a 'stealth effect'. Well, unless I get some Christmas free time (ha!), that is it for the year. 330 Points. I'll take that. My best to you all for the Christmas period. Keep putting pigment to plastic, and I dearly hope to see you all in next year's Challenge! Caedrus.

    Welcome! This is the thread for the January 2019 Monthly Painting Challenge. I’m Caedrus, and I’ll be your host for 2019. I’d like to sincerely thank @Franchute for the 2018 efforts, and I hope to do as good a job in this upcoming year! If you’d like to be part of this challenge, please introduce yourself below, and post what level you’ll be painting at! The painters who have already signed up will have their details put into a spreadsheet soon. The 2019 Wyrd Monthly Painting Challenge is all about: Having fun painting! Motivating yourself, and encouraging others. Being part of a great, friendly community. Giving and receiving constructive advice. And, finally: Getting some pigment onto plastic! This is not a competition in any way. The pledge categories are the following: Minion: you paint at least 1 soulstone worth of Malifaux miniatures each month Enforcer: you paint at least 6 soulstones worth of Malifaux miniatures each month Henchman: you paint at least 11 soulstones worth of Malifaux miniatures each month Master: you paint at least 16 soulstones worth of Malifaux miniatures each month Tyrant: you paint at least 31 soulstones worth of Malifaux miniatures each month The rules: The challenge will start on January 1st 2019. Models count for the month in which you finish them. You can finish painting a model that you started before the beginning of the month. Everyone may fail to make their monthly goal twice and stay in the challenge. This is using a mulligan. You can choose to go down a pledge level during the year, but you cannot move up. You may choose to sign up during a later month for the challenge but this means that you'll have to use one or two of the aforementioned mulligans: e.g. if you start in February, one mulligan will automatically be used because we missed January; if you start in March, two mulligans will already be used; you can’t start in April. A model is considered painted if it is (1) based (even glued onto a black base counts); (2) tournament legal. That means that if it's a translucent, based model, it counts automatically. If it is any opaque material, then the standard is: Every part of the miniature painted, and three colours minimum. Miniature Values: Malifaux Almost all models count as their Soulstone value; Masters count for 15 soulstones. Zero cost models count for 5 soulstones. Proxies (constructed from Wyrd models) count for their proxy value. The Other Side Almost all models count as their Scrip cost in soulstones; Commanders count for 15 soulstones. Adjunct models count for 5 soulstones. Titans are worth triple their scrip cost in soulstones. Terrain Terrain is worth 5 soulstones per 50mm base. Custom tokens are worth 5 soulstones per 50mm base A terrain board is worth 100 Soulstones. 3rd Edition? If Malifaux 3rd Edition hits in 2019, then the month that the PDF version is available, we will begin using the new values if they differ from M2E. My very best for the end of your 2018, and I hope you all have a fantastic 2019! Caedrus.

    I really love it anytime I get to paint those beautiful miniatures from Kingdom Death: Monster. The Kingsman was no exception. While is pose is stoic rather than dynamic, the details on the armor just sang out. My client wanted to make sure that he wasn’t too dark (with Kingdom Death miniatures, it is pretty easy to just use a lot of dark colors) so I made sure the accenting reds were bright enough to compensate, while still getting darker towards his feet.

    Greetings, fellow painters! I’ve been painting for a fair old while, but I still have so much to learn. On these Wyrd Forums, I see so many innovative, creative, and technically excellent painters. I also see so many people who are keen to experiment, to develop their own style. I was thinking about what advice we give our fellow painters, to challenge them, to encourage them, and to help their own skills and style evolve. After a bit of messing about, I came up with the following: a Wyrd deck of painting achievements! So, here’s a list of 54 things for you to try, personal achievements to gain in your painting in 2019. The higher the number, the harder the challenge, and the decks represent different skills. Crows steal ideas, Tomes develop knowledge, Rams smash through challenges, and Masks cover surfaces. If you’re up for challenging yourself, see how many personal painting achievements you can unlock this coming year! For those interested, I shall also be hosting the 2019 Wyrd Forum Painting Challenge, so there’s something else to try! Enjoy your painting, and have a great 2019!

    Spoilers for The Other Side's core rulebook incoming, I'm just going to write out this blurb of a paragraph so folks reading the front page post note thingy don't get accidentally spoiled on everything, but there's a lot in the book that has to do with this thread I think! Okay, going to go ahead and assume that this is enough, I'll break down my thoughts on the three Tyrant-things I think are affected in this book. Again, spoilers ahead. The Burning Man So the first thing to note here is something that I've wondered for a while, whether the Burning Man is aware of what's going on, is conscious at all, or has just become a force of nature - and this is answered in the book very clearly: "It is not conscious, and any sense of agency it may have once had has been drowned in its own madness." So, it's a force of nature now rather than an active character. Secondly, and I don't have any direct quotes to back this up, but the way that the worshipers basically become irreparably magically converted to the cult (when Edmonton looks at the Broken with his magic monocle he describes them as "a blistering legion of smokeless flame, linked together through a chaotic web of leaping, swirling fire") makes me think that Kitchener was successful and did actually manage to become the Tyrant Rulership, but thanks to the ascension being sabotaged and Cherufe screwing things up further he can't really benefit from that. Meridion We actually get a LOT of information of Meridion's past and present in this book, and actually a description of what she looks like too! As far as her past goes, even before she fell with the other Tyrants it's noted that she had palaces and shrines (plural for both), indicating that her desire for the worship of her followers has been a key part of her for a long time. The book also notes that the Gibbering Hordes who "dwell on the beaches and in the swamps of Malifaux frequently built idols to Meridion" and that "as more idols are pushed into place along the ley lines of the world, [...] the whispering voice that speaks to [the Hordes] becomes more clear." This pretty clearly says to me that Meridion is getting stronger as her followers get back into building up her places of worship even now. Most disturbingly, in part of Thrace's story it's noted that some jellyfish-like Hordes monster appears to have the power to basically mind control humans and force them to pray to Meridion as well, probably to strengthen her even further. They note that an idol probably built to look like Meridion is "in the shape of a woman, but her features were all wrong. Half of her face was a mask of range, the other a serene smile. One leg kicked out and twisted more like a broken metal pipe than a leg, and the other stood tall. She was cloaked in an armor of scales and, much like her face, half of her armor was torn and tattered, the other half pristine." Now to me that reads pretty clearly like a Hel-like creature, more about duality than any one feature. Later in the same story, she speaks to one of the Broken who, when Meridion is mentioned, says she "is an ancient thing, unable to change. Unable to even free herself from death. A pathetic husk, chained to the veins of a beating world by her own worshipers" which seems to imply that maybe her being worshiped is actually part of her prison rather than a potential exit from it? I'm not sure which way it'll go in the future, but it's a lot of cool info on an otherwise barely known Tyrant. Obliteration This is just my own personal theory, but when the Burning Man and Adeodatos are mentioned there's a lot of mention of time and the "space between spaces". Specifically, when the Burning Man came into being he teleported about a week back in time and from Malifaux to San Francisco, and when his timelines matched back up the San Fran earthquake happened (it doesn't clearly state whether the Burning Man's the cause or if it's a coincidence, but it feels causal from how it's written). Additionally, the two Tyrants merging is said to have caused a "surge of magic [...] so great that it imprinted itself on the retina of the cosmos like a breand on seared flesh, and visions of the entity rippled backwards through time like ripples on a pond." The Stalking Portals are described as portals that don't actually lead to anywhere else but "connect to somewhere in-between [Earth and Malifaux]." Lastly, when Edmonton shoots Adeodatos in the head with a Soulstone bullet (which is described as being a "perfect shot") instead of dying or showing any sort of injury Adeodatos just sort of fades away and states "This is not the end, [...] In his light, I have found eternity." So what does this all mean? I predict the Cult messing around with huge amounts of breaches and intentionally using ones that only go part of the way is going to screw with the Void in some way, and maybe even give Obliteration a back-door back into Malifaux. There's a lot of mention of time and space in the book, and maybe I'm just reading too much into it, but it could be a cool angle for everything.

    Hopefully I'll get a bit more time today to do final touches on Manos and Waynudo, but probably won't have time to upload pictures later, so, here're a final picture of Minako and her Katashiro for 18ss, with a WIP for the rest. Happy New Year to everyone, be safe in whatever festivities you may attend, and may hope and good tidings find you quickly and often in 2019!
