  1. Hello! I need some help from you guys! Just started my journey with M2E this year, I play with Rasputina I'm one of those players the like a "theme" to my crew, so i want the mins I use to be part of The Cult of December Saying that, I know there aren't a lot of the M2E mins out as plastics that are part of the cult, so at the moment I'm not spoiled for choice. To my problem, I use Rasputinas box and the AoD mins, but I can't for the love of me get the big guy to work :/ He usually ends up doing nothing or just dying very early on Should I just wait for the likes of SnowStorm to be released as plastic, since I find him more versatile? Anyone got any handy tips for a aspiring Arcanist? Thanks! Philip
  2. I'm shamelessly looking for feedback, so please comment often. Even if it's only to tell me what a terribly average or boring log this is. I haven't been painting regularly for more than a year and I hope this project will get me motivated to work on other stuff. I ordered two starters and a handful of blisters for Malifaux at my FLGS last week, the Bayou Gremlins, which are hilarious, and the Cult of December, which I thought looked nifty. My vague goal is to paint up the CoD like Rainbow Bright characters, mostly for grins but also in an effort to sucker my girlfriend into the hobby, and the Gremlins to look similar to a common bayou fish call the crappie. I'm electing to start with the Cult of December. No real reason, though the bases for the Gremlins will probably be a lot more work. I have to saw matchsticks in half lengthwise for what I have in mind... While I love the overall design of Wyrd's figures, the casting leaves a lot to be desired. Several of the sculpts, particularly the Gamins and the December Acolyte, had really lousy mold lines, flashing, and other flaws. I spent a lot of time cleaning them up. After tidying the sculpt and removing the tabs, I want to do all scenic bases for these figures, I cast up a sheet of Durham's Rock Hard Water Putty to craft my bases out of. I can't recommend this product enough for basing applications. It's inexpensive, highly durable, and easy to work with. It's very similar to plaster of Paris, but sets up harder. Using one of the smaller bases, I scribed circles into the hardened putty then broke it into irregular pieces. This gave me the perfect amount of material to fill the larger bases. I repeated the procedure with a nickle to make the smaller bases. I'll pretty obviously be painting these up to look like cracked and broken ice, but I've done similar to make stone outcroppings. I really liked everything about Rasputina, except her silly top-hat. So I clipped it off and made a new, rounded, crown for the hat out of household putty. It makes her look even more like Sorscha from Warmachine, but I prefer it. This figure was almost perfect otherwise. I had to scrape down one very minor mold line. I highly recommend her to folks interested in showing off free-hand painting. She has the perfect combination of a dramatic pose, detail, and large areas of flat surface. The Hoarcat Pride kind of surprised me. They cast these little cats in two parts, divided behind the shoulders. They fit together well though. I'm glad I got good casts here. They're so small that any flaw in the molding process will result in the figures being indistinguishable blobs. The Wendigo is tiny. Not much larger than one of the hoar cats really. I was initially disappointed by this, but then it dawned on me that he's the perfect size for Twink the sprite! The December Acolyte was a real mess. There were mold-lines everywhere. I strongly recommend examining the figure closely before purchasing it, if you can. I'm sure it'll paint up nicely, but the prep work on this figure took longer than any other in the set. The Ice Gamins are fun little monsters. Getting them off the tabs was a pain though because their limbs are so spindly. I cannot say how important it is to own a good pair of wire-cutters and a razor saw. It's somewhat advantageous in that the pieces can be easily reposed, if you want to add more than one set to your crew. I haven't read their stats, but based on the poses I think they throw some kind of ice attack. I may see about sculpting a cinematic effect ala Armorcast. If you couldn't tell, I like to do things myself and I'm disinclined to buy them if I don't absolutely have to. Here's a spectacularly bad picture of my Ice Golem. I think I like the Dark Age one better. He's a goodly size though, about twice the height of the human-sized figures. The arms on the figure are not well designed. They socket in at the shoulder with a very narrow tab. It's a recipe for disaster in my opinion. If you don't pin them they're guaranteed to come off and if you do pin them they may still. If the figure is remastered at any point, I hope they make the shoulders part of the arm and join it at the chest; like the WHFB Ogres and Minotaurs. It would be much more secure. If everything goes according to plan, I'll putty a couple joints tonight and start priming the figures. I'll be hand-priming using white gesso for this because I haven't got any white spray. It's a technique I've used before with good results.
  3. Hey everyone, Been working on these guys for a while now, but I got them finished last week. Didn't get a chance to post them earlier because of lots of last minute painting for Australian Golden Demons, but here is my Rasputina and Cult of December Crew in all their glory: Rasputina (Front and Back) Ice Golem (Front and Back) The Ice Gamin So I've got a Snow Storm, Wendigo and Essence of Power sitting on my table to be finished (not to mention I got my Dead Justice and Teddy last week in the mail...). Anyway, there are some more photos and larger versions of these ones on my blog, along with links to all the Work In Progress photos: http://arrch.blogspot.com/2011/09/cult-of-december-rasputina-finished.html
  4. Finally got around to making a forum account, been playing Malifaux since February or so. Figured a good place to start posting is to post some of my minis. Please be kind, they're my first batch. I'm working on improving my technique, but i'm used to painting on a much larger scale, these tiny figures are a real challenge for me, especially the faces and tiny details. I've gotten a lot better brushes and paints since I first started, so my newer models are looking better. This is my Rasputina. I'm not very happy with how she turned out. Maybe I'll buy another Raspy when I get better and can paint her again. I just bought a new purple and skin tone from Reaper, hopefully it'll work better then what I've been using. I like how my gamin turned out pretty well. I like my cerberus. He's the first one I finished. Pretty happy with how the stripes turned out, I was nervous when I started painting them. I think the Wendigo is my favorite. He's so cute and fuzzy, and i like how the rock turned out. I managed to get his feet just right, it looks like he's charging up the rock, ready to chew someone's face off. I've got some really cool pilars that my boyfriend and I created, but I somehow forgot to get photos of them. I'll take a whole group shot with all my guys and the pillars. Maybe my Acolyte will be done by the time I get around to it. I've also picked up a Colette box, some Coryphees and a Dreamer. Lots of painting to come! A friend of mine had my boyfriend and I paint his Lilith box. I called dibs on painting his Lilith. So rather than make another post, I'm just sticking her here.
  5. Picked up Tina's box last week, sat down and painted it over the last couple of evenings while watching Young Ones. Twas fun. I'm not the best at freehand, and to be honest, I can live without the stocking stripes, so she gets plain grey ones. Considering how she loves to hide in a snowstorm, I would think that any colour is counterproductive, but the sash ties in with the base colour for the Golem and Gamin. Apparently I also randomly decided she needed to be blonde. I have no explanation for that. For some reason, I'm quite pleased with the two straps hanging down over the tail of her coat. I really can't explain that either. An explosion of drybrushing, with red eyes to stand out against the blues. I know he doesn't get a lot of love on the forums, but he killed the Judge in a single activation in the one game I've played so far, so I'm gonna keep him This guy had a malformed left wrist. The arm ended in a knob, unattached to the hand, while the hand has secured to the model by the tiny contact point between the thumb and knee. Since these guys aren't as evidently constructs as the Golem, more like ice gremlins, I slapped a wash over them to smooth them out.
