  1. I've worked with four sets from M3E (Dreamer, VonSchtook, Basse, Marcus). Overall, I'd say the quality is a slight improvement in terms of level of detail. This is particularly noticeable on the faces that have much more expression (Basse's crew really shines there). And while some may be a tad static, I'd say the overall feeling is that they appear quite imposing too
  2. @Franchute - great start, the skin looks absolutely amazing! I have Kaeris' crew in dayglow version planned for this month. I'll be doing some tweaks to keep them more cartoonish. In fact, I've already painted one sample Fire Gamin to test how Tamiya clear works as foundation for inks that are predominantly used over it. Looots of layers have been built in here but I think so far so good.
  3. Same here. A bit disappointing but hopefully it'll be back soon?
  4. It's been a busy month but so far I've managed to finish Basse's crew. 42 soulstones locked in
  5. Less than 24 hours to go https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/virukpl/m.html?item=113947009775&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562
  6. Quick WIP shot, still plenty of detailing to be done but the overall feel is there. I've got to admit - M3E faces look really good
  7. Update: Chimera keyword minis on eBay now: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/virukpl/m.html?item=113947011866&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562
  8. Well this has been a pretty god year so far. Pretty decent result in previous months with a solid batch of minis every month. As mentioned, I had the pleasure of painting two crews as commission or Wyrd and both were showcased during Gencon; VonSchtook: http://www.whatthefaux.net/2019/08/professor-and-his-students.html Dreamer: http://www.whatthefaux.net/2019/07/bad-dreams.html For this onth I lan to paint one more M3E crew: Basse and his frontier folks. Really nice minis, great lever of detail. I'm not too keen on the big Executioner dude but we'll see how it oes when I start painting.
  9. 33 soulstones + 21 more for three Order Initiates brings me a total of 54 ss for October
  10. Update: Hayreddin is now sold and I've added a group pic of the whole painted lot, still available
  11. Selling some very nicely painted minis with Chimera keyword: Metal Marcus Sabretooth Cerberus Cojo Jackalope 3 Molemen Myranda Paul Crockett 2 Razorspine Rattlers (plastic and metal one) Mighty Scorpius Slate Ridge Mauler Vogel + The Beast Within + new Alt Reva + Hayreddin (new in box) Strong preference to sell everything in one go (at least the painted stuff) so feel free to shoot me a message with offer and we can talk.

  12. I've had a few productive painting sessions so far and here are the results for a total worth of 33 soulstones. More pictures here: http://www.whatthefaux.net/2019/10/mighty-scorpius-and-paul-crocketts.html @bedjy - love the creative thinking and the execution is superb. @Boomstick - I really like the crisp, vivid finish. That shade of green is just perfect for the winter-themed models and the robots look sexy too!
  13. I'll try to keep up the good pace this month with these:
  14. Some great stuff here this month! @Caedrus - love the vivid shades you've used. Together with super smooth highlights, they really make your paintjobs work. Top notch stuff there! @PetitDalek - great work on the skin tone, really impressive. That terrain piece looks awesome too. @Wintergloom - those red spots add to the "underground zombie lab" feel and nicely contrast with greys used on skins. Congrats on your trophy too! @Rathnard - I like the use of purple on exhaust, seems to add more life and vibrancy to the model. @Sol_Sorrowsong - makes me really want to work on these minis, can't wait till Eurypides is available in general release. @muraki - elegant, clean paintjob on the Investigators. Also, great Doppel conversion. @Thedeadclaw - nice work on the Agent. I'd only suggest using a darker shade of red to get more realistic blood effect (GW's Blood for the Blood God works wonders) @Stranglelove - nice choice of colors for Parker, those classic wild west shades suit him really well. @Diddick - both minis look very impressive. Great choice of colors for Hans, browns work really well with black there. Winged Plague looks sick and mean too - in a good way @Purple Mist - nice buildings, would be great to see some Malifaux minis next to them for a good idea of their size. @Franchute - sweet paintjob on this tiny mini. You've been consistently delivering really high quality works here, keep it up! I've finally kicked in my productive mode and will finish this month with a total worth of 50SS (6x Moleman, 2x Slate Ridge Mauler and this Killjoy). This was a great opportunity to experiment wil MiG's Oil Brushers - check out a note on my blog. I can definitely see huge potential of using these for Malifaux minis. As always, there are more pictures on my blog: http://www.whatthefaux.net/2019/09/fae-killjoy.html and you can also check out my instagram account where I put a 360 video showcasing this model. https://www.instagram.com/what.the.faux/
  15. 2x Vogel and the Beast Withing completed, painted mostly with Contrasts (see here for detailed description of the whole process http://www.whatthefaux.net/2019/09/malifaux-and-contrasts.html + more pictures.
  16. We need not a lot of explanations to understand there's a lot of painting efforts and mixed techniques behind your great last models. BTW, I bought and I'm on the way to experiment with GSW Intensity Inks that look to be an equivalent tool, but the fact GSW presented it before GW: Did you have any chance to try them? Not yet, they look quite interesting although the final effect appears more glossy and colors look more vivid which I don't like that much,.
  17. finally got to test GW's contrast paints. Some quick thoughst: - these are not an end in themselves, rather a tool with some speific use, - only using contrasts allows you to get a decent result without much effort, - contrasts have a tendency to pool and require paying a lot of attention when applied, - 2 -3 layers -> deeper shades. Here I used them over Wraith Bone basecoat and followed with some highlights/glazes of red and brown to create the effect of irregular, dirty fur. For Molemen (I don't care too much for these sculpts), I started with a layer of Guilliman Flesh, folowed by two quick highlights and some washes with glazes of brown and purple. In the end I picked out some facial details too.
  18. I promise I will paint something from this batch this month Work's been crazy recently but I hope to actually test contrast paints and oilbrushers as I work on these.
  19. Yup, painted - I used a drubrush/stippling technique with bone white shade + some washes.
  20. My pledge for August. Apologies for no ss count but I'm clueless regarding M3E - haven't play the game in almost a year and I'm completely behind with new rules/costs...
  21. August is a busy month for me with 13 days already gone and a week I'll need to spend abroad so my pledge is moderate this time round:
  22. Thanks for the reminder, here's what I've painted this month for Malifaux: Prof. Von Schtook Research Assistant Anna Lovelace (10) Undergraduate (6) Undergraduate (6) Undergraduate (6) 43 ss + research assistant's cost (not familiar with m3e rules/costs at all
  23. @Caedrus thanks for the trust, here are the pictures : Many more pics can be found on my blog: http://www.whatthefaux.net/2019/07/bad-dreams.html
