Mortarion's Malifaux models

Recommended Posts

Awesome! I was halfway through painting these models (madnesses) in a similar way but gave up when I couldn't balance the colours out. Totally going to steal a piece of mind off you on the gradients and adding in those creepy fleshtones.

Speaking of fleshtones I think your faces in general look excellent. I find it hard to get a good level of contrast and keep things looking natural and you've done that really well, Hoffman and Santiago stand out to me in particular. Mind if I ask what paints you tend to use for your skin-tones?

Thank you!

@lusciousmccabe: I originally used Coat d'Arms "Dwarven flesh" as a base, shaded with watered down Citadel colour's "Tuskgor fur" and highlighted with Coat d'Arms "Flesh". But since Coat d'Arms paints are really difficult to get a hold of, I have now switched the base to Citadel colour's "Cadian fleshtone".

It's been a while since I posted anything. I've had a lot to do at work, and my hobby time had gone to other stuff. In fact, it has been so little painting that the Guild decided to send two impartial investigators to find the truth about what happened.

After careful investigation we have concluded that the Guild is definately not to blame for the lack of painting.

Allthough it might not be clearly visible on the photos, I added a bloody knife to the base, so that she would have something to investigate.

I thought a bit about which colour to use for the carpet. A light colour (like in the illustration) would look good and provide some opportunity to paint blood stains. However, I decided that it would also push the model to far into pure comedy territory. If you are going to dispatch of a bloody corpse it is stupid to use a light carpet as the blood would soak through. A red carpey would make that much less obvious. So I went for a red carpet.

More models!

First up is an Arcane effigy. This one had been sitting on my painting table for a while since I could not decide on a colour scheme. I felt I needed to come up with a colour scheme for Arcanists in general. But after some thinkingI decided to just paint him like my Neverborn instead. My main use for it would be Collodi anyway. And then things became much easier.

And a third Bunraku. Hard to get a good picture of this one because of the pose.

And finally Master Queeg. The face look a bit strange on the picture because of the light, but it looks better in reality. I wanted to do something with the vest, so I tried to do an embroidered Guild symbol. I wanted it to be quite subtle and I think I succeeded.

Arcane Effigy is one of my favourite Wyrd minis and I think you did it justice.

Nice embroidery on Queeg and blacklining on everyone. Bit muted, but that seems to be the style you're going for. Nice, consistent look👍

Finally done with Hinamatsu. This model has been on my painting table for quite some time while i thought about how to paint it. I really wanted to do this awesome model justice.

I'm quite happy with the result.

So, after a long break while waiting for M3E I am now back to painting Malifaux. 

This model have been following Lady Justice around claiming to be her totem. It must be a trick, because he looks nothing like the Brutal Effigy. Maybe the new governor is behind this...

I thought a bit about the colour of the robes. In the end I settled for beige/sand colour, since it would look impartial and allow the blood to show.

Some new stuff for Lucius done!

First, Agent 46. I think that the original model looks a bit boring, so I tried to build something a little bit different. Something that looks more like a gentleman than a soldier. Someone Lucius would send on a mission. I figured the mask and blades would make it pretty clear who it's supposed to be anyway.

And then, Alan Reid. With this one, I wanted to get really close to the illustration. It looks so much like a Guild Investigator, so I didn't want anyone getting confused. There are only some small changes.

A WIP of Alan.

And finally a second Lawyer. I've had this model since I started Malifaux, but never got around to painting it.

I recently finished the Carver. Cool sculpt and concept.

And of course I had to paint blood splatter on the pumpkin face, both to give it more of a horror movie feel and as a reference to the intro of the movie Sleepy Hollow.

Hooded rider done! Unfortunately, it's really difficult to get good pictures of it.

This is propably the closest to a Games Workshop model that Malifaux gets, so I decided to paint it in more of a GW style with brightly coloured armour. I think it ended up quite well.
