  1. Updates on the WIP Smoke and Mirrors Crew. Much work still to be done but base coat and first shade and some highlights are done. So Cassie I went with the standard Red. Performers are Green/pink and Orange. Angelica I am doing in Blue.... So now I am trying to work out what to do with Colette. I think I am going to make her clothes darker than the others... I might go with dark blues and grays. I also am going to do a brown/gold pattern on the Green and Pink Performer's corset.. hopefully it comes out kinda paisley looking. I am also going to make her tight
  2. Thanks! Yeah, I like the way they turned out but I basically had to accept the gritty primer (my wife would murder-kill me for priming them indoors) since the weather here is seldom both warm enough AND dry enough to prime without getting at least some of the grittiness. The first time I tried to spray a varnish on a group of miniatures and it microbeaded all over them due to the humidity that day I rage-quit painting minis for 6 months. O.o I just risked brutal wrath today by priming some bases in the utility room. MY KINGDOM FOR A GARAGE... it's not a BIG kingdom, m
  3. So there you have it! Around 3 hours per night for 21 nights, and 25 miniatures complete... minus LCB, who got as much work done on painting and then fixing him as the rest of Hide and Seek combined. Given the amount of time I had to knock all these guys out I am pretty pleased with the results. I wish I had had a couple of more weeks and could have really spent some time on them... but overall I think they'll look great on the table, even if not held directly up to the eye. You might have noticed that I have shown you the stuff that I gave away to Friend 1, Frie
  4. And of course they get a box too... It doesn't look as GREEN as it does IRL due to lighting fails and camera mishandling and whatnot...
  5. AND THEN! The group all together. I am STILL amazed at how colorful these gals all came out.
  6. Then on to the Bushwhackers proper. There was a poll conducted. The results were unanimous. The stuffed bird HAD to be a Flamingo... and not some more camo-appropriate bird. I'm afraid my photography skills failed harder than usual with the next one... she's a bit out of focus...
  7. And then on to her protégé... Little Lass. She's ben in the mud, obviously... And then everyone's favorite party-girl, Trixie Belle. There are a couple of things I noticed about Trixie as I was getting ready to paint her... 1. Her clothes pretty much FIT. I mean... they're ragged... but they're HER SIZE. 2. She has SHOES. Clearly she is a girl that gets what she wants.
  8. Friend Number 3 is the kind of person that you get hillbilly bayou-dwelling gremlins for...trust me. He has managed to work "Revenuers! Get Offa My Land!" into several conversations. Since Mah Tucket actually HAS a "Get off my land!" ability, I felt she was the Hillbilly Bayou-Dwelling Gremlin for him. >.> <.< Also, I wanted to paint Trixie Belle. O.o So some notes overall on the Gremlins: I tried to paint them all in mainly browns and greens because they're BUSHWHACKERS... and they should be good at attackin
  9. And ONLY NOW do I notice that LCBs base is showing the foam through the cracks.... /seppuku
  10. Aaaaaand... LCB in all his toothy glory. It bears noting that LCB took me forever to paint because I started out making him look all green and ghosty and was painting brown carapace on top... then realized that I wasn't going to make deadline if I kept doing that... then tried to take a shortcut... COMPLETELY borked the miniature... drank some delicious rageahol and went on a rampage... came back and realized that I didn't have time to strip the paint and start over AND still do what I wanted... and then did my best to salvage the miniature. It's fairly well salvaged I thin
  11. The kid himself. The camera DID get the tone-on-tone of the pillow, but not the three shades of warm white on his shirt.
  12. Coppelius. I described the "I want them both!" part of his Card to my wife. She felt that was TMI. She loves that he is wearing khaki's tho. The shading doesn't really show in the pics. There's actually a transition from pink at the top of his head to dark purple at the end of his tentacles. Also, his khaki's are shaded, but the camera didn't pick it up well. And then to everyone's favorite murderous teddy bear of doom... I wanted his eyes to look like they were glowing brightly... but again... it bears repeating...I suck at painting OSL and light.
  13. On to Hide and Seek! As I explained to my wife when she asked about the Crew: "You're coming home from work late, walking the last little way. It's dark outside. You see some dazed-lookin' kid in a nightshirt wandering around and rush over to make sure he's OK. At the last moment you realize that you just walked up to an unattended little kid at night, and that you are in MALIFAUX... and hey why I everything spinning and IS THAT YOUR HEADLESS BODY FALLING OVER?!" The BOX! Like the others there is a metal plate in the bottom and all the bases are magnetized.
