  1. @english_boar: Just my opinion! I think permanent boards have the advantage of (often) being absolutely gorgeous. If designed well, balanced on all four sides (and corners!), and have access for 50mm models, they can be absolutely excellent. Modular boards, on the other hand, give greater variation, and allow players to be certain that they have had a hand in the board layout (and will have a fresh 'feel' each new game. But, as a person that is mid-design of a graveyard board, there are lots of cool things you can do: gravestones as walls, fallen gravestones or sinkholes as difficult ground (in my opinion, people don't use enough difficult ground). A disused (or active) crematorium incinerator. Open graves to fall in. Restless spirits as a form of dangerous scenery. Stacks of coffins. Make your mausoleums flat-roofed for height advantage. My very best on your build! Caedrus.
  2. Caedrus, checking in! I've been tinkering with a Sonnia, and a Pale rider, and done some basing for some old M1E metals, but I thought I'd share a very quick sculpting effort. Now, my sculpting skills are very, very basic, so hopefully I can mask the sculpting with some painting! What miniature is this, you ask? This is Miss Feasance's proxy Copycat Killer. I call her Little Miss Guided. More details to come! Caedrus.
  3. Caedrus, reporting in! Hello All! I had all sorts of plans for this month's painting, but instead, there was a Pale Rider sitting in front of me, that I had recently removed from its paint-stripping adventures. Even though I knew the straps on its flanks were supposed to be leather, I decided to see if I could make them brassy. Sneak peek! So, that was kinda fun! Keep on putting pigment to plastic! Caedrus.
  4. So, jumping immediately into August, I've completed my August pledge in record time! I decided to try my hand at a highly-contrasting OSL style, inspired by one of our own painters, the prolific @SpiralngCadavr; A Google search of spiraling cadaver will take you to his blog. It's an interesting style. It's not quite as intuitive as it might look. I think a lot of the efficacy comes from the background and base. Now, in truth, the image above has had a black background inexpertly photoshopped onto it. It looks like this on a white background: I enjoyed trying out this style. It's not something I would do frequently, but I learned a lot, and it could make for an incredibly atmospheric effect. So, what's up for September? Anyone have any suggestions? Enjoy your painting, and keep putting pigment to plastic! Caedrus.
  5. Hello All! Well, a quick update to let you all know that not only did I complete the Beastman from July, I've already finished August's! This is the July effort. This guy was swiftly painted, with the blade being the most time-intensive. This miniature was painted entirely with GW contrast paints, with the majority being one coat. The pale blue is very weak pigment, and I think the white has to be the most-needing-to-be-shaken paint I've ever used. Ever. I stand by my earlier comments. They do what it says on the box, and they'll be a tool, for when I need to paint something fast. Onto August!
  6. @Da Git: This is where I'm up to with Candy! Caedrus.
  7. ...and this is where I'm up to with the conversion!
  8. @lusciousmccabe: My vote would be claws done like the teeth, but lots of dried blood and filth at their base. Horrifying.
  9. @Stark: That's a legitimately impressive collection! I'd love to get my hands on some of those goodies. I doubt I could afford them, so I shall instead wish you the very best with your sale. Please put an eBay link up, if and when there are things left over!
  10. This month, I'm pledging 15SS of Sonnia (in metal). Stretch goals? There are plenty. Samael, a Canine Remains, a Death Marshall are all staring at me, mocking their incomplete nature. Have a great one!
  11. August is here, and with it, Malifaux 3rd Edition's arrival at GenCon! This is the thread for the August 2019 Monthly Painting Challenge. I’m Caedrus, and I’ll be your host for 2019. It's August! If you're in the Northern hemisphere, then it's time to take it easy, and stay out of the heat! If you're in the Southern Hemisphere, it's time for hot chocolate and Uggies! July's birthstone is the Peridot. Time to paint something green, maybe with a touch of yellow! The link to the painter spreadsheet is here, and I'll continue updating soon! The 2019 Wyrd Monthly Painting Challenge is all about: Having fun painting! Motivating yourself, and encouraging others. Being part of a great, friendly community. Giving and receiving constructive advice. And, finally: Getting some pigment onto plastic! This is not a competition in any way. The pledge categories are the following: Minion: you paint at least 1 soulstone worth of Malifaux miniatures each month Enforcer: you paint at least 6 soulstones worth of Malifaux miniatures each month Henchman: you paint at least 11 soulstones worth of Malifaux miniatures each month Master: you paint at least 16 soulstones worth of Malifaux miniatures each month Tyrant: you paint at least 31 soulstones worth of Malifaux miniatures each month The rules: The challenge started on January 1st, 2019. Models count for the month in which you finish them. You can finish painting a model that you started before the beginning of the month. Everyone may fail to make their monthly goal twice and stay in the challenge. This is using a mulligan. You can choose to go down a pledge level during the year, but you cannot move up. A model is considered painted if it is (1) based (even glued onto a black base counts); (2) tournament legal. That means that if it's a translucent, based model, it counts automatically. If it is any opaque material, then the standard is: Every part of the miniature painted, and three colours minimum. Miniature Values: Malifaux Almost all models count as their Soulstone value; but Masters count for 15 soulstones. Zero cost models count for 5 soulstones. Proxies (constructed from Wyrd models) count for their proxy value. The Other Side Titans count for 25 soulstones. Commanders count for 15 soulstones. Adjunct models count for 5 soulstones. Otherwise: A 30mm base model is worth 5 soulstones. A 40mm base model is worth 7 soulstones. A 50mm base model is worth 10 soulstones. Terrain Terrain is worth 5SS per 50mm base in area. Custom tokens are worth 5SS per 50mm base in area. A terrain board is worth 100 Soulstones. We're now using the Malifaux 3rd Edition values! How to upload images? Go to imgur.com, and create an account. Click on your account, click on 'images', and then 'add images'. Click on your uploaded image. You'll see a whole bunch of link options. Click on the 'copy' button next to 'direct link'. Go to your Wyrd Forum thread. Paste (CTRL-V) at the appropriate spot. The image should appear, resized appropriately to the page. My very best for August! Caedrus.
  12. Evening All, As July winds down, I've done a little updating on the spreadsheet, and I believe that it is correct. Please make sure everything looks good to you. I have moved a few painters into the did-not-finish category, and I think it is correct as well; if I've made any errors, let me know! I'm looking forward to what @bedjy, @Boomstick, @Chou, @Franchute, @lusciousmccabe, @muraki, @PetitDalek, @Rathnard, @Sol_Sorrowsong, @Stranglelove, @Viruk, and @wobbly_goggy come up with for July! Keep putting pigment to plastic! Caedrus.
  13. @Purple Mist: That a very simple, but super-functional piece. I've put it down for 30SS, as a guess!
