piete Posted July 6, 2010 Report Share Posted July 6, 2010 I've been lurking a little while, and I'm really impressed with the community here. You all seem so supportive! So far I've played about 1/100th of a game (we did a quick mini-vs-mini to see how the rules worked), so I really don't know anything except that I really enjoy the painting. Last couple of weeks back I finished off the Ortegas: Full gallery: http://pesartain.com/games/malifaux/ortega_gallery And I'm currently working on a Leveticus crew with SPAs + Desolation Engine. At the time, there were no SPAs, so I improvised: Full gallery: http://pesartain.com/games/malifaux/leveticus_gallery I've had no luck with the photography on the SPAs (hence the undercoat picture, rather than one of the ropey colour ones in the gallery), so my apologies for the poor quality. All of the Malifaux miniatures represent a lot of firsts for me: * first putty (milliput) use (bases and sculpting) * first custom bases beyond superglue + sand * first major conversion (SPAs are Mechanithralls + ghouls) * first time I've had little to no uniformity between models, just lots of singles to paint * first try on non-metallic metals (total fail ... ) * first try with rust (not a fail, but hardly a success!) * first pinning (using the no-pin technique for bases - success!) And so on ... ! I know the Ortega's look unusual on cobblestone, but I wanted to base them nicely something, and have had quite enough of sand for now! Hopefully the Leveticus bases will come out okay in the end. I had a hell of a time getting the colours right on the SPAs, too. Apparently I don't know how to paint flesh when it's not flesh coloured ... I was aiming for a scheme similar to the Desolation Engine as depicted on the packaging, but ended up with a kind of neon pinky purple that had to get washed down. A lot. All feedback is welcome, but since I've had mixed successes with a lot of the new stuff, advice in that direction is especially welcome! *deep breath* Okay, I'm ready ... hit me with the critique ... - Piete.
