    Monthly Painting Challenge - August

    @H4ml3t Thanks...appreciate your reassurance ๐Ÿ‘...but....changelings ,doppelgรคnger, beckoners, depleted ?....it's not just the money it's also the hours and hours of paint time...but even more than that it's the idea of something you have invested in being so radically reconfigured....I can understand that for some, perhaps most, the prospect of such a shake up may be very exciting but for me it just makes me think "hmm....so this time it was Lynch....so who will be next ?"....as a consequence one part of me goes "in Wyrd we trust" because as a whole I have really enjoyed the lore, the stories and most of the models they continue to produce...until now....the other part of me however is feeling far less generous especially as I don't care much for the new card design either...whatever...it's only my personal opinion We don't know an awful lot so time will tell...until then it's still make and paint time๐Ÿ˜‰....and TOS on the way !! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    @Chou Joss especially looks great...personally I struggle with NMM and have only tried it on small details so if that is your first attempt then my hat goes off to you as it's very impressive @Caedrus Had time to catch up now....I really like your Desolation Engine - the flesh tones look excellent.....the Guardsmen too very much look the part...I haven't seen the artwork you mention but they've changed colour have they ?....like you I spent ages deciding on a dark blue/green for all my Guild riflemen etc but I'm not stripping them down....and now that Jakob Lynch (who lots of my NB models are based around - so quite a few dollars invested and a lot of hours in painting time) is not appearing as a master in 3e then I think my road into Malifaux may well be coming to an end and will remain forever in 2e

    @Franchute thanks for the kind words...took me a lot longer than I initially imagined because I was working on the companion one at the same time to keep the base colours matching...once I finish the other one in September's Challenge I'll try and get a better quality shot of them together.....and thanks for rearranging me to Enforcer as I really enjoy all this ๐Ÿ‘

    With only minutes to spare I made August so I'm still in the Challenge and with you all....much rejoicing ๐Ÿ˜....for September I shall be completing the companion to August's Shikome...if at all possible I'll add something else too...will have to scour the table of shame for a candidate

    @Treemonkey Porkchop looks great and blue Lenny makes for a very welcome alternative take on Gremlins @Franchuteyour painting goes from strength to strength - @Viruk got it spot on regarding your choice of palette and subtle tones because that Kentauroi is my favourite of any I've seen @Purple Mist all the time and effort you put into the hoarcat bases was worth it - they look excellent @Viruk quality and quantity- I just don't know how you do it but am glad you do as I always look forward to your models and paint schemes For myself almost a month away from home meant that I was certainly a bit rusty when I picked up a brush again but have put a few hours in and all being well one of my Shikome should appear before midnight to keep me in the Challenge

    Some very nice blends and excellent choice of palette make for dome very dynamic looking models...very nice indeed plus the work you have put into the bases helps set them off....I also like the way you have combined neat brushwork with airbrush for some very striking effects

    Very nice brushwork indeed....Iove the richness of the blend you got in Serena Bowman's dress and what you did with the skin tones is very impressive as well...already looking forward to seeing more

    M3e sculpts

    THAT !!.....exactly 100% that !!....,love building them and don't mind fragile and am quite happy to fit metal pins...BUT....glueing tiny feet to legs or pieces so small that you can barely pick them up with tweezers ?!....those are the things that could get the Dalai Lama to curse ๐Ÿ˜‰ As for what I would like to see ?...Rather than pick on individual sculpts more than anything I want sculpts to remain essentially a dark and creepy kind of weird...spooky.....I get it that thicker figures are more robust and transport easier thus clunky chunky figures in metal is the norm...but IMHO the great thing about plastics ,and Wyrd really have pushed the boundaries with plastic in a most positive way, is that it can render human anatomy and fine details better than anything else All the alternative sculpts coming through means everyone can mix and match to build crews to their own individual tastes which can only be a good thing...for my partner Rasputina version one in metal is what she fell in love with but for myself I think the rest of her crew look better in 2e...I look forward to eventually seeing crews mixed from all versions
