Dear dead Diary, Day #1: Today I've bought my first Malifaux core box. Someone else was a bit quicker and snatched the cheaper M2E Seamus box, so a different master it shall be for now. All the good advice in my forum threads won't be for nought though, they just will come handy later. I've settled for von Schtook instead, looks like a good start for newbies. To me it's at least funny to play a crew lead by a professor and his undead staff/students. That's like my everyday life. Also bought a box of Necropunks. Someone should advice Wyrd on German language though. Or declare the Prof. a Brit. Day #2-3: I've assembled all models and created their bases. Switched to "normal" lipped bases, I like Wyrd's lower ones, but just in case I'm going to used sculpted bases one day, I don't want them to look differently. But for now I create the basing myself. Don't want to overload their bases, as fancy as this can look, for gaming miniatures I think it's important to focus on the models themselves. Step 1: cast stony sheets with rough surface out of dental plaster (forgot to add glue, guess I'll have to live with the material being a bit brittle) Step 2: graveyard decoration always works for undead, so I sculpt a few small gravestone out of milliput Step 3: decide to glue single prepared pavement stones, works well but will switch to sculpting the pavement directly on the base in the future again Step 4: add sand and pin models to the base WIP PICTURES: Step 5, filling the few gaps the models have, is still pending. But my friend, future opponent and also a beginner, still has to fully assembled his crew. So no need to rush. The painting scheme is already planned, as I like to use gaming models to train myself in new or rarely used techniques, I'll combine underpainting and sketch style for my Ressers crew. Main colours will be cold tones from blue to green. In miniature painting you can't avoid to also use warm tones if you want realistic colour choices and e.g. brown you can rarely avoid. Instead I'll desaturate those to lessen their optical impact. As I plan to use strong shadows, the blending to the zenithal highlights will be a challenge though, especially on such slim models. Sidenote for you, Diary, I could have written in multiple different books, but collecting painting, battle reports and general rumblings in one place is much easier to handle. I think you're the best place for that. See you soon sweet dead Diary.
Hello, greetings! You made it through the title! Long time lurker, first time topic starter. I've been thinking about this painting blog since Youko was revealed in the M3e beta. I've got a few project blogs scattered around the internet from when I was heavily in to [REDACTED], but even though I'm a long time Malifaux fanatic and complete convert this is my first cohesive painting blog for Wyrd stuff. This will be pretty comprehensive and be the base from which I keep track of the project on Instagram and Facebook, and will probably be interrupted at random by other painting stuff. Enjoy! A LITTLE ABOUT ME Started playing and painting [REDACTED] in 1993. I have won a few painting prizes. Began Malifaux in 1.5 with Raspy, played through 2e. Crews built: Rasputina Lynch Viks Brewmaster Kirai That list USED to be less of a hot mess, but they took my Brewy away from TT Unbuilt stuff: Well, see for yourself: Seems fine. I can quit whenever I want.
Hey, guys! A new recruit to the Malifaux game and world here, and I must say I'm very intrigued. The models touch my ideal kind of fantasy world, and even if I can't recruit enough players in my area I'll have some fantastic and imaginative models to paint for my personal collection. To begin I've chosen The Dreamer and the Neverborn. Although all of the Factions of Malifaux were interesting with a top-notch model range, the horrors of the Neverborn sit very close to my love affair with "anything goes" once I start branching out for conversions and the like. The following models are very much work in progress, and are still a few steps from hitting the painting table. I really enjoy the idea of this eerie, darkened home/orphange, and the theme of the bases stick close to the actual Wyrd Orphanage bases. I wanted a bit more room, literally, to allow some additions here and there, so I elevated the floors with a bit of cork. Dirt will fill the underside of the floor boards, leaving enough room for the green stuff that you see to be mystic, glowing energy and nightmare monsters lurking beneath the wood. Dreamer - I added a bit of a rug, but lifted up a section so I can have a deep shadow with eyes peering from beneath it. A ball sits next to him. Lord Chompy Bits has the same rug, but I omitted the monster/eyes, as LCB is more than interesting enough to not want to draw attention away once he's painted up. Teddy - I added a simple child's book just to fill in the area a tad. Idea was simple, and stolen from the official bases. Daydreams - These guys are great, and I wanted to keep them simple. One stands with tentacles reaching from beneath the floor boards, another is actually modeled to appear to be bursting from beneath the floor, and the last (the octopus-looking one) is sitting in a bit of cork where the floor has merged with the nightmare realm and will have some swamp and water effects. Alps - More great models with amazing personality. I wanted to add to it a bit, but still keep it simple to not draw away from them too much. The one with the cigar has a bit of the floor removed and it'll be a pretty sizable blood stain and whatever gore will make it look like he just bashed in someone's head. The bent over one seemed to be in a "ready to charge" but I added to pieces of chalk, one actually in his hand", because I plan to paint "LEAVE" on the floor in front of him as if he just wrote it. The running one was gets the tentacles reaching from underneath the floor this time. Coppelius - Little was done. I have some green stuff drying so I can carve some toys, and he might get one or two if they come out okay. I have a flat piece curing now to make into a puzzle, but I'm thinking I'll put that idea with Baby Kade once I get him together - I have Kade's older metal model and think it'll go nicely with him. So, here's the WIP picture. Sorry it's a bit small for the amount of stuff on the screen, but I was really hurting for time and had to leave for work ASAP. I still need to scrape off mold lines, fill gaps, cut the excess rugs to the shape of the base once it's dry, and add the dirt. And then it's paint time!
