    Monthly Painting Challenge: October

    Here is a quick update on my pledge this month: Still need to highlight the horse coats & the skin, but hooves, gore & exposed muscle is finished, as are the spears (although one needs to be fixed as there was a bubble in the haft which weakened it). Another week & I reckon they're done! Cheers all, 'Brown

    Following on from my success with a more modest target last month, here is my pledge for October; a pair of Kentauroi for 16ss. Have a great month all! 'Brown.

    Monthly Painting Challenge - September

    Hi @Franchute, here is the Necrotic Machine finished - with 90 minutes of September left! Tough to finish this one, not a fan of the model at all. Done now though, so all's good. Along with Molly (previously posted) that's a mighty 17ss for this month. Cheers all, let's start this all again tomorrow! 'Brown.

    Update: Molly is finished! With whole days to spare! Necrotic machine will be down to the wire no doubt, but that's just the way I roll. Keep going everyone! 'Brown

    Monthly Painting Challenge - September

    I'm out of the country for a few days now, so won't get any more done until Thursday at the earliest. Thought I might share a WIP update before I head out: I still need to finish Molly's shoes, skin & dress. Necrotic machine needs almost everything finishing! I'm reasonably pleased with how they're coming along - especially as Molly was one of a batch of models that I undercoated when it was too hot & dry, and the spray went grainy. Sort of rescued her. I definitely think taking on a smaller number of models has been a good move; less daunting to start work on, and I've got time to get better results, which then encourages me to complete them. Cheers all, 'Brown

    Great work @PetitDalek - lovely concept and fantastic execution. Congratulations!

    I use greenstuff for very big gaps (mainly conversions really), and Vallejo putty for more standard, ill-fitting pieces type gaps. I find the best approach is to brush the putty across the gap, and try to build up the putty against one of the sides of the gap in a couple of layers. A needle file with a pointed end is useful in places like wing joints to smooth it all down afterwards - actually useful on flat open surfaces too.

    If you have some pictures of your Gaki to hand that would be fantastic!

    A more modest target for September; Molly & the Necrotic Machine for 17ss. Let's see if I can get these done early, and get a bit more in as a bonus. 'Brown

    @Joachim these look fantastic, congratulations! Can you tell me the technique you used for the emissary's robes? It looks exactly what I wanted to achieve on my Gaki. Well done once again, lovely work.

    2nd Mulligan for me too @Franchute; turns out both me and my partner starting new jobs in the same month whilst the kids are on school holidays had an impact on my painting time - who would've guessed? Will be aiming for a more modest target for the remaining months - but I'm definitely going to get there. 'Brown

    Ok, getting ahead of the curve for this month - all my pledge models are already built! Molly, Necrotic machine, Kentauroi, that damned MZ (why won't he die?) and 2 Goryo started last month for a total of 41ss. Have a great month all, 'Brown.

    Ok, I didn't get the stuff I wanted to get done finished. In the end I managed the Jury, Sun Quiang and the Malifaux Child (base) for 18ss. I'll do more next month I swear.

    First feelings M3E

    I agree with this. I know tactical options and variety are considered strengths in Malifaux, but as a less experienced player regularly playing against strong opponents, it's really easy to get so overwhelmed by the complexity of your opponent's crew & synergies (and indeed your own) that you don't actually learn anything from the experience. It might detract from the very top player's experience, but I feel a shallower learning curve would keep me enthusiastic about the game.

    Great work on the airbrush @Caedrus, you've inspired me to dig mine out for my riflemen. I thought I'd give an update on my limited progress so far this month. I've done all the blocking and washing for Sun Quiang (similar bases are also completed for the two Goryo). I've learnt a valuable lesson this month; it was too hot when I undercoated my models for this month, and the undercoat went grainy. I've tried to recover them by a judicious use of some stiff brushing, they'll have to do. I've also decided to get my Malifaux Child done (because he's just a base, and therefore very easy. Cheers all, 'Brown.
