    New player, new painter - first results

    Okay dear folks of this forum, It's been a while. Life got in the way, so I had to sell my Neverborn to pay for repairs. Things are looking a lot better in 2018, though. Thus, after changing factions and taking the opportunity to start a new faction, here‘s the first two models for our upcoming campaign. They are almost done, Francisco’s sword needs work and The judge‘s base still lacks color. Still: what do you think? Sebastian

    Henchman Cologne

    Wow, so I literally just emptied a bunch of Black Friday sale boxes and hung out with our new Henchman and did not even mention Malifaux. Stupid me. Very nice fellow, great store, perfect atmosphere. If you happen to live anywhere even approximately close to Cologne, go there and give it a try. ;-)

    Sorry. Bit slow in replying here. I am currently considering the Black Friday sale - that might be an option though. Thank you very much @SurreyLee, Miss Ery has arrived in fabulous condition. Much appreciated and a perfect person to deal with!

    Learning Malifaux, need advice for next purchases

    Thank you. I think I will indeed get what I have painted first. Your suggestions sound fine down the road. I will see where I go from there.

    sorry, I was offline (sick) for a coupe of days. Thank you very much for the video, started watching right now, as I am still off work for a couple of days...! Will try! Might be the same Mako I have seen over at another game's forum, I guess. thank you! google did indeed turn out some of their very nice work. This will keep me busy :).

    Ok, sorry that I can‘t hit the thank you button twice. So: thank you. That will take some time to sink in though. 🙂very nice resource!

    Thank you both very much. What you are saying about color theory sounds very valid. Unfortunately. I dońt know anything about it and thus could never come up with your suggestions myself. may I ask - is there any kind of book or internet resource that you would recommend on color theory? I don‘t mind taking some time to thoroughly read up on the matter... Thanx for sharing! That does give a better idea on NMM - I alread saved some video links to watch tomorrow. This is such a nice and helpful place, I really appreciate it!

    Thank you for sharing, I'd love to see more of your work when you get around to sending me a link. :-) I'll be getting some more colours today anyhow, so I'll also try regular metal on the next mini down the line. We'll see. Have a nice day!

    I can fully relate to that philosophy, thank you. Still got almost a month to go + the tournament is only 40ss, so that should be doable. That's what I meant. Everybody in my local community + most of the guys on here and another game's forum I read seemed to be doing NMM. My pool of painted figures is limited, so I will try both. Also, now I will try to find pictures of your work on here, as your post sounded like understatement.

    That is highly appreciated. I agree that I like Lilith way better if I don't zoom the camera in on her. She'll be fine on the tabletop. Thank you very much for your feedback and advice! This was my first attempt at lipstick and putting on some makeup tones for the face. Honestly, I agree that it did turn out a little harsh maybe... You are spot on about the hair - the pink looks a little weird. Also: the blade - I did dry brush two levels of highlight onto the blade, which for the base of the sword does indeed not yet look optimal. Thank you so very much everybody for being so detailed in your feedback. I will definitely try to keep your advice on taking pictures in mind for the next miniatures and I will post them again - I need to somehow get a crew done before December 9th, but I don't want them to look terrible. From your experience, is painting miniatures to a tabletop standard and doing the detail work later on viable? I would much rather take my time in the long run than rush things to be able to field a crew... Have a nice evening!!

    Thank you. I found a local guy I can do some painting with. As to the metals, I think you are right - will be watching some videos on non-metallic-metals, as I really like the look of them if done right. However, regular metallics might be quicker to get the first crew together. Somehow I picked up the - probably wrong - impression, that using metallic colours takes away from the paint shop in any way. That is likely nonsense, what do you think?

    Hi there, that is a very generous offer. However, I am afraid that shipping from the US might be really expensive... I also double-checked if there are any other models from the guilder store that might be of interest - however, I don't think so. Thank you for offering anyway, though! Also, maybe I'll get lucky in the Black Friday sale. Have a nice evening, Sebastian

    Thank you very much for the advice. Right now the plan is coming up with viable 40ss lists for a first tournament in December and getting the crew painted up. I am too slow to have all models painted by then, but I am confident that Lilith might be flexible enough. I really like the Guild aesthetics, so that might happen at some point in the future.

    Thank you very much for your suggestions. I am currently working on some other miniatures just to gain experience and confidence. (Plus, I want to be able to field a crew for my first tournament in December... :)) The sword is actually just blacks and greys, no metallic colours used there. I agree. The things you mention are obviously negligible at tabletop distance, but I was a bit untidy in the spots you mentioned. Thank you for the positive overall comment :). Much appreciated. I was actually hesitant to post here, as there are so many gifted people on this site . Hope to be making some good progress on the rest of the crew...!
