  1. Hey gang, Was talking to my local hench the other day about how RatJoy wasn't a huge issue the models weren't released..even though the rules have been out for a while. I started along the lines of 'well thats silly as one could convert..." is where he cut me off and sort of said people aren't as into converting as I am..and in general in Malifaux(and Infinity), people aren't as conversion crazy as your more 'classical' hobbists. Coming from a 40k and Fantasy background, where back in the day GW loved to push conversion ideas and thinking outside of the box and everything, and in a fair few tournaments that I attended there was always a large portion of overall score put toward your hobby and softscores (Sportsmanship, Hobby (painting, conversions, freehand work etc)). If you also looked back into the golden age of White Dwarf there were always large amounts of bibs and bobs showing off cool armies, conversions etc which (as a younger modeller then) always sort of gave you something to strive for. As an aside I reckon it would be amazing (and surely not too much work) for Wyrd to maybe have a model showcase each month stuffed into the back of the Wyrd Chronicles, as besides that, they've almost got all the boxes ticked from the 'golden-era' White Dwarf check list. Cruising the forums over here (and vulturing around AWP) I've seen some of the truly most stunning paint jobs known to man..but I've noticed (when compared to say a 40k or Fantasy hobby forum) the amount of conversions and showing off of odd ideas etc are quite minimal. The conversions that are out there are quite bloody brilliant, it's just that there isn't a huge amount of them (by comparison). So my question, and discussion point I suppose, is two-fold: 1. Why isn't converting as big in Malifaux (and 'younger' wargames) as it was in others? 2. Why does the Gaining Grounds pack not reward 'extra' effort for hobby scores as well as sports scores (saying in the pack 'don't be a dick' doesn't really cut it haha..) Discuss and flame away gang!!
  2. Does anyone else need music in the background when they're painting or playing? I do. So I made this Malifaux playlist, months ago. Thought I'd share it with the group.
  3. Wyrd makes the best, most flavorful models in the game. And they do some of the most interesting stuff in terms of limited editions and alternate color ways. Curious if there's ever been a discussion about making more models like Lazarus that combine the translucent grey plastic and some decorative colored plastics for key bits? E.g. The base Lynch box would be awesome if his skeleton/Hungering Darkness was translucent purple by default. Likewise with Kareis' wings. Some figures don't lend themselves well to the translucent treatment, e.g. Perdita, but would anyone else be interested in seeing some multi-color kits that provided some flexibility for hobbyists? Traditionalists could always paint over the colored plastic and completionists could buy the fully-colored kits. If nothing else, it might be an interesting way to do the "bonus models" for the retail promotions. Instead of a fig for a random faction you get something that spruces up the kit you're buying.

  5. Disclaimer: This thread will almost certainly contain images of miniatures that may or may not have all their clothing on or may or may not be deemed appropriate by any of you softy-softs out there. If you are easy to offend, this isn't the place for you and I will be making no attempt what-so-ever to facilitate to the more sensitive people within the community. Welcome to my insanity! ----------- Well I finally did it and took the plunge. I started a WIP thread in the Iron Painter 2015 forums and I was surprised at the number of views I got (over 2700 during the entire competition). I'm not sure if people looked because they were really interested or just wanted a laugh, but they viewed all the stuff I did, regardless. As such, I decided to make a large thread dedicated to all of the new projects or single minis I complete or even what I am currently working on. I will be including only Malifaux projects, for relevance sake. If any other miniatures or projects pop up chances are they are proxies or of a similar style. In other words, I'm not going to bombard you with post after post of Chaos Dwarves because chances are you're not viewing a Malifaux forum to see Chaos Dwarves. The only things I don't share are my major projects. I do one a year and I keep them a secret until they are done. As soon as it is done, though, it will show up here. My approach to miniature painting is achieving what I call "premium tabletop" standard - the kind of stuff you'd expect to see in an issue of Warhammer Visions or on the front of packaging/cards promoting the game. What you should not expect to see is fancy schmancy plinth pieces - I want to be able to use what I paint so most of my stuff will have a little utility in place of being completely artsy-fartsy. Do not expect NMM - unless I am painting a giant Japanese robot or a bunch of pretty elves (fat chance). Do not expect OSL - I feel that it was innovative 10 years ago but now it is gimmicky an usually out of place. If you want to see someone who uses OSL as an actual creative style rather than just a convenient gimmick - check out Spiraling Cadaver's stuff on the forums here - that's how it should be used! What you should expect to see in this thread is gritty realism - I try to make my minis look natural and dark - for the most part. The spectrum for me is somewhere between gritty realism and grim-dark. I know, I know - they don't "pop" like the currently popular style of overly saturated super bright and pretty cartoony looking models - but then, not all of us want Dreamer crews that incorporate lime green, baby blue, hot pink, and yellow-as-fuck into them. I want my models to look tough and realistic - not like the little tiny toys they actually are. You will, however, probably see a lot of layering/blending/wash (glaze) techniques, battle damage, micro-painting, weathering, creative base design, and enough free-hand to keep you entertained. My hope is that this thread helps to keep me regular and interested in submitting pictures of my work as much, if not more, than my IP 2015 WIP Thread did. As a side note - the first post will be a collection of all my WIP posts for IP 2015 so that you can quickly skim them, but mostly because they will need a home once the Iron Painter sub-forum goes bye-bye. After that, I believe I owe zFiend a Zombie Pig - from that point on, though, the sky's the limit. Enjoy! I am fully open to comments and critique or even throwing ideas at me to bring to realization. Assuming that they are appropriately explicit - I just might prioritize it from within my hobby queue, which I can assure you, is long and distinguished. Thanks for looking - expect regular updates - I am a fairly consistent hobbyist and like to keep busy all the time. As such, feel free to follow this thread, if you so desire.
