@WalkingInBlack Thanks for your continuing support and to answer your question I do actually do commissions. I mainly do sculpting commissions but if it's the right kind of project (i.e. something I'd enjoy) I am willing to pick up my brushes as well. @Alessandro Thank you very much
@Joooohan I agree on both points. Work is already underway on fleshing out the family (check below) and I will be adding a few less thematic options in order to learn some better tactics. Display board wise I totally agree, the wall definitely needs a little something, originally I was going to add posters and notices. However the board was made in a rush as I needed it for the tournament so it didn't get the attention it deserved. I am starting work on a new one ready for UK Nationals though which will be getting a bit more effort poured into it.
@sigmar3 Thank you. I've really enjoyed putting these together but the only problem now is thinking up what to do for the next project.
@ringsnake Thanks for the kind feedback. You've just got to keep trying with conversions for Malifaux and then eventually you'll get the hang of it. I'd done quite a few other bits before I attempted this crew and I've been sculpting for 10 years or so. Regarding Abuela, I actually played around with a skull type design for Senor Hodor but I couldn't get it to look right. I may revisit him later and try adding a few more details. And to answer your question, the sheet in my spray booth was actually a timetable to make sure I got everything completed in time for the Scottish GT.
@Averlorn Thank you, there's a little update with this post but there should be a few bits popping up between now and November.
@sockwithaticket Thank you very much indeed and cheers for following this project through.
So another small update of what I'm working on at the moment...
I've fallen a bit behind (as usual) with this project but I'm starting to get things back on track.
I have until November 19th to:
- Convert and paint the peacekeeper
- Convert and paint the Executioner
- Touch up the current crew (mainly the NMM and freehand)
- Design, make and paint up a new display board
So time once again is against me but hopefully I can battle through and get everything ready on time. Just as long as I'm not planning on moving house anytime soon....ah yes I also move house next month.
But on with a little update...
First off we have the WIP of the Peacekeeper. The concept behind this guy is that he is a walking DdlM alter. I did a bit of research into the alters they offer in the actual festival and I loosely transferred it onto the model. I didn't include everything that would traditionally be on there, I focused more on the figure, candles, flowers and a bowl of incense (missing from pic).
And next up we have the WIP of the Executioner. So this guy has had a bit of a re-pose to have his claws more down by his sides. And then I also decided to put him in a big duster coat with will look pretty similar to Santiago's.
And that's all for now. I'll post up some more once I've made some decent progress.
C&C welcomed as always
