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.
