  1. @OctaBit - very nice indeedπŸ‘ great blends...I have a few Scale 75 paints - nice and opaque but in my experience need a fair bit of thinning down... @prof_bycid πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£....you just made me laugh so hard - thanks...silurid looks great too πŸ˜‚πŸ‘
  2. Finally we have it in writing πŸ˜‚....must be quite a big office by now πŸ˜‰....not to worry - I'm more than happy to keep screaming
  3. Don't be so hard on yourself πŸ˜‰.....if you look back over the contributions that everyone has posted over the last couple of years it's easy to see a clear improvement in the standard of everybody's painting....you includedπŸ˜‰
  4. @Franchute - looking very good alreadyπŸ‘
  5. Malifaux - female executioner ToS - female version of the big, globby, melting guy in The Warped
  6. @lusciousmccabe - very nice subtle tones and excellent blending - lovely job πŸ‘
  7. @solkan - thankyou for that in depth analysis - like you I have found a heat gun produces better results than trying to dunk the model in water...the ice trick however you should patent πŸ˜‰...next models I'm using iceπŸ‘ @Razhem - the issue of a straightened part eventually creeping back to bent is something I have experienced as well...BUT....only on two or three of the fifty odd models I've prepped for painting...so I have yet to figure out why...could it be a specific temperature or time heated versus time cooled ? Perhaps it's just pot luck...with the smaller models it appears to be fairly easily rectifiable....Solkan's issue with the Titan sounds more serious.... I notice that two of The Kickstarter models (Binh Nguyen and Samantha Thrace) they have used a darker grey and much harder plastic....long term perhaps it couldn't be beyond the realm of possibilities that Wyrd use this harder plastic for heavier models with issues such as those mentioned ?
  8. Still early days yet πŸ˜‰ Even those of us with Kickstarter pledges didn't receive packages until the end of last year so even the fastest and most keen painters are only just getting into the first units....give it a couple of months and there'll be more inspiration out there for sure
  9. @Rathnard - that's some very neat sculpting/conversion work done there to get your three Raving Madmen to all look different...I really like the vivid colors in the Stalking Portals as well...am already looking forward to following your progress
  10. @Franchute - thanks...have to say I am pretty happy with how they turned out...was attempting to get the entire squad of ten finished but didn't want spoil them so concentrated on those five....the other Broken will be finished as part of the March pledge so that's when I'll post photos of all ten in their plug in bases Skin tones...no precise recipe as I am constantly experimenting....however...the base colours were all a mix of Scalecolor #19 Golden Skin, 20 Basic Flesh and 21 Pink Flesh and then shaded/highlighted with Vallejo Model Color 859 Cadmium Maroon and Vallejo Model Color 70.858 Ice Yellow The base color for the blues/grey was Vallejo Model Air 71.111 USAF Light Blue (one of my favorite new colours)....I'm increasingly using Model Air colors as opposed to the thicker regular colors ....and I saw how much work you put into Samael's faceπŸ˜‰....am very impressed πŸ‘
  11. @Franchute - the stress was worth it....came out really good...I like a lot the folds in the cloth and the wood texture is excellent πŸ‘
  12. Made the February pledge goal in the dying seconds of the month....so....this month my main pledge will be to try and avoid doing that again My pledge for March will be to continue with the Other Side so (a) finish Fenton Brahms who I started last month but who had to go back for a repaint because I wasn't happy with it....then I will finish the other five Broken who I started on last month Then....an Immolated Rhino - yay !...who doesn't like saying "Immolated Rhino " ? πŸ˜„ Stretch goal will be to start on The Doomseekers...can't wait !
  13. Under the wire at the death ! Fenton Brahms will come next month....for this month here from the Other Side are five of The Broken @Caedrus - five 30mm bases

  15. @Franchute - Plus one ! A sudden flurry of amazing work....am just breaking out the varnish...23:55 here I come !
  16. @emiba - loving the green to yellow of the corpse markers...did you base in white and work up from that ? @Franchute - great to see you back and excellent job so far - really like the leather tones you've got going there - look forward to seeing it finished...and thanks for your kind words @Stranglelove - excellent feel on the Stalking Portals...when I saw you had based and primed all of them I was like "wow that's gonna be a ton of painting!"...finishing three is nothing less than impressive - you made them look great @Polar43 - great job on the Whiskey Golem - hope you get them finished in time @Caedrus - thanks for the kind words...the mermaid dress lady just leapt out at me and almost painted herself in one hit - really is a great sculpt....but there's ten figures in the box and there's other sculpts equally as good as that one...I can see I'll be wearing out a few brushes in the coming months πŸ˜‰ Update from my painting table - making progress and started on the bases today but I foresee it being one of my scraping under the wire at the very last minute to get my entry finished kind of months πŸ™„...so next update from me with finished models will probably be around 23:55 on the 28th
  17. @Caedrus - my favourite Anna Lovelace to date - absolutely stunning
  18. If the Gorysche was any bigger it would need feeding πŸ˜‰
  19. @Athiko - gets a thumbs up from me...ultimately I'll go along with what everyone agrees on...ten models to make up a full squad of The Broken, nine for the Warped etc etc...it's a lot of work and impossible at S/S for scrip rate...but whatever we decide on - those Titans ! 😱😱....I can just about see me getting King's Hand done in a month IF I have a ton of spare time...but the Gorysche ?!?!....took me hours just to prep it for priming !πŸ˜‚
  20. In simple words yes....the small figures are every bit as good as their renders promised they would be and IMHO are equal to the finest sculpts in Malifaux...I have two titans - Gorysche and King's Hand...both of them have very large gaps in places 2-3mm wide that need a lot of filling...however....compared to anything in Malifaux they are truly IMMENSE...as such and considering they are pre-assembled I don't mind that and take it to be part of normal model making...detail wise the titans will rely very much on the paint job, particularly the Gorysche as apart from the head detail it is virtually smooth all over and believe me that is going to be a LOT of surface to cover - the gaps in the model soaked up almost an entire pot of liquid Greenstuff... King's Hand has one very large gap at the rear as part of the manufacturing/assembly process but has enough detail to make not so much of a problem... it's a mech so with a bit of brushwork the detail is more than sufficient to be convincing...having invested in The Kickstarter I feel that I really got (a) what I was hoping for and (b) a good deal....but...if I was starting from scratch I doubt I would be willing to spend the amount of money being asked for a single Titan that in effect costs almost as much as a starter box ...and I love what you did with that model....really lovely brushwork πŸ˜‰πŸ‘
  21. 😱😱😱😱.......πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£.......ooops !
  22. @Scatterbrain - it's a short month 😱...but we're all rootin' for you πŸ˜‰πŸ‘
  23. @Nikodemus - thanks for the kind words....and you can see you had fun with that Moleman because it looks really good !
