    Myranda from Malifaux

    This was a quick paint job that I did to see if I could do a mini in one day. She was started when I volunteered at the Paint and Take at OrcCon where I worked on her for a few hours and then finished a couple of days later with another hour or two of work.
  2. So, my new project is mostly in my head at present, but I'll try to describe what I'm envisioning. I am making a terrain piece that is going to represent the Great Breach portal in Malifaux. For those who dunno, it's essentially a portal from our world into the other side, which is a very odd sci fi, gothic, horror, steampunky kind of dangerous world. At first to represent this, I thought I'd make an actual picture as if you'd see it through the portal. But, one that's not very terrain-y so to speak, plus I really think it's beyond my skills. So what I'd like to do is, on one side of the portal (Earth) I'm going to have everything look normal and bright. On the other side, I'd like it to look otherworldly, with mainly a dark colour over everything, and a lot of decay etc. This is going to be a 12"x12" board I will split, probably on a diagonal, so the Breach sits in the rough center, on the dividing line of the board/terrain piece. I have a car model I'm working on, that will be half way between the Earth side and the other side. So one half will look shiny and newish while the other... very much not. What I'm trying to figure out, of course, is how to do the dark side, otherworld side. I was thinking monochrome - not necessarily black, but maybe a very dark blue. Since I've never done anything like this before I was hoping I could pick the brains of all you more experienced painters How would you start to paint a dark world, how would you highlight or shadow it? Obviously I want it to actually be something you can see... but look like it's in darkess. Any help is appreciated!
  3. Gotta just call it done, here s/he is in all his/er glory (I dunno always thought it was a guy but lore calls out girl, whatev, it's a gremlin so it's up for debate)

    Shameless Seamus from Malifaux

    Dr. Philodendron Arkadius, my mutagen focused Alchemist. I wanted two different forms of the same mini to represent the transformation, and I dig this mini. He had a gun in his hand, and that didn't fit, so I lopped it off and make a potion vial out of green stuff. For the mutagen form, I was channeling Solomon Grundy from DC comics, hence the alabaster skin. I want to do some type of cool base for both, but haven't decided what yet. Might just do cobble stones, with a shattered vial on the ground of the mutagen form, Arkady. Human form! Mutant Form!
  5. Just finished these tonight - or well almost, as I was taking this pic, I realized I'd forgotten one of the gremlins faces >< sigh - anyway they're not great, but they're done. I had a really hard time lining up the arms with the rifles (they're in 3! pieces) and once I had that done, I didn't realize the head almost didn't fit. Yes, I dryfitted them but wyrd's stuff's a bit... erm weird sometimes. Anyway, they are indeed together, hopefully they'll stay that way once I start playing with them lol.

    Malifaux Gremlins "Lenny"

    I finally had a fairly bright day, so I took final pictures of this miniature which I'd done previously about a month ago, I think. The first one is on the display board I made for my Gremlins. C&C is always welcome! I have a tough time with blending and I'm trying to perfect it. At least on this mini I feel that I got the highlights in the right places lol And I realize there's a terrible mold line especially on the pig :( I just couldn't get it to go away and it's in a very awkward spot for later fixing. Anyway, pics:

    Metal Gamin

    Here's a Metal Gamin for Malifaux. Since I'm not very fond of actual models, I've repainted a Dreamblade Runrtagged Brawler to be used as a proxy. I've used Citrine's formula (thank you ). I've just added a final layer of drybrushed 50/50 Ancient Bronze + Vallejo Oily Steel, to get a more desaturated tint. More pics: https://gabbigames.wordpress.com/2015/12/26/metal-gamin/

    Desperate mercenary

    This guy is the desperate mercenary from Malifaux, I really like the sculpt but getting the arms to stay in place without pinning was an ordeal;) I stuck pretty close to the color scheme on the blister pack and the base is GS. Please C&C comments are always Welcomed
  10. I have finally completed my Dark Debts crew for Malifaux :) Jakob Lynch and Hungering Darkness The Illuminated A Beckoner and Mr. Graves Looking forward to comments and criticism! More (and larger) pics: https://gabbigames.wordpress.com/2015/11/01/malifaux-neverborn-dark-debts/
  11. Been working on the old metal Kirai crew box and not quite sure what to do next. Needs a spot of some contrasting color, I think, but not sure what or where.
  12. This is the regular Malifaux Whiskey Golem, WYR20603 (not the "Nightmare Whiskey Golem" WYR21015 which has a slightly different pose and extra goblin figures). My husband gave it to me for my birthday as part of a selection of minis which could be used for steampunk. As he said, "It's a wooden robot!" This is the first plastic figure model I've put together, and only the second plastic model. Many thanks to the Reaper forumites who suggested glues to use, as my tube of hardware store Duco Plastic Model Cement was way too gloppy and crude for the fine detail of this model. Thanks to Doug Sundseth and haldir for recommending Tamiya Extra Thin Plastic Cement, which, although terrifying, worked pretty well. This model did not have an assembly diagram. I'm sorry I didn't take a picture of the sprue to accompany this statement, because yikes. Zillions of fiddly bits. Fortunately, I found a diagram online for the related "Nightmare Whiskey Golem", which is close enough to work for this one as well. Between that and the render of the model on the back of the box, I could suss out how to do it, starting with the extremities and working my way in to the main body. The Tamiya thin glue comes in a little glass jar with a tiny applicator brush, perfect for detailed little models like this one but probably frustrating for people who need to apply it to large surfaces. The glue is so toxic I assembled the model outside and I wore a NIOSH respirator (and of course gloves) while assembling it. The one thing I left off was a little stack of mugs meant to hang off the peg on the upper left barrel on its shoulders. They were a little fussy and I wanted to emphasize the woodenness, not the whiskeyness of the figure. This means that I now have a spare little line of tiny mugs. Maybe I'll add it to a bartender mini ...

    The Dead Rider and Governor's Proxy

    Here are a couple Wyrd minis that I got to paint up just a little while ago. These are both the metal versions of the characters. Wyrd has been switching their line to plastic, and with some very nice results, but it is also nice to go back and paint up the metals ones too. It isn't like Wyrd had a poor range before their move to plastic, you know? In fact, in a few instances, I really miss the old metal versions. Anyway, here they are- the Dead Rider and Governor's proxy
  14. Wyrd Games occasionally does gender-swapped versions of characters for their game Malifaux. They use the same rules and for the most part they are pretty awesome. I was struck however when looking at the difference between "Johan" and "Johana" at the size difference (see comparisons here: http://gmortschaotica.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/unboxing-malifaux-johan.html), and thought that a Johana with Johan's proportions would be really cool. First off, is this a reasonable idea? I don't know enough about physiology to tell if I will be able to get the miniature to look like a woman at all, or if the underlying body shape is too different. Malifaux as a game already has a few women (never enough, but certainly >0) with non-standard body shapes so I am not worried about that. If it is possible, what can I do to give the miniature more female aspects? I'm expecting to have to reshape the head and sculpt on breasts, taking direction from Borderlands' Ellie. (http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Ellie) If i'd be better served by sourcing a different head I could do that.

    Here are some Guild minis that I painted up just a little while ago. I really felt that the skin tones should vary among the crew, and here are the results:
  17. So I've been given some hard plastic models, styrene, I think. They come in grey hard plastic and mostly on rectangular sprues anyway. One is Malifaux's "Whiskey Golem" (or, as my husband said, a wooden steampunk robot), one is Perry Miniatures "Medieval Cottage 1300-1700," and one is a set of Pegasus Hobbies "Gothic City Building Small Set #1." The Gothic Building set snaps together but the makers recommend glue for some delicate parts. The other two must be glued. Can I ask what glues people recommend for this sort of model? I gather there is some sort of special plastic solvent glue for plastic models, but I haven't really played around with it. My children used superglue on their Games Workshop plastic armies because, apart from that one incident of setting the cotton opera glove on fire, they could safely use it. What I have at the moment are several types of superglue and epoxy. Looking at the cottage, I am concerned about whether the model will hold together. It's basically just flat walls glued together at the edges. The structural engineer in me itches to put interior corner reinforcement and braces inside. Is this overkill? Will the proper glue help its integrity? I also note that two of the kits contain nothing in the way of assembly diagrams or instuctions. Should I take this as a given in hard plastic models and treat them as a sort of IQ test?
  18. First off, the title is a result of currently rewatching Chuck, one of my favorite TV shows. What this is, is a work in progress of the projects I have planned for the next two months. Let's just say, I think I am insane. I have 5 for ReaperCon, 2 commissions for friends, and if I have time 2 for me. So without further ado, let me introduce my victims. First up the lovely Tinley. This beauty has been slightly modified and will be my entry in the open category for ReaperCon. I am pretty happy with her as this is the first time I have done any modifications. Next up are two ladies for the painters category. Dark Sword's Steam Punk Babe will be painted up as a Sci Fi Babe, using the stock photo for the Star Wars the Old Republic female smuggler as inspiration. Representing Reaper, we have Betty the Space Heroine and her little friend. If it looks like I have the time, my last entry will be a diorama staring the Queen of High Elves and Praying Paladin in a castle room. The commissions are for two friends from my gaming group. They are a web exclusive Space Marine from GW and Nicodem from Malifaux. Luckily the guys do not have a deadline and told me just to take my time. Lastly we have Rhaine from Reaper, who will serve as my next PC, and Magda, who I have wanted to start since I got her. But you did not come here to read text, so is the line-up all prepped and primed. The paladin has not been primed as I have been having issues with attaching his arm.

    A boy named sue?

    The mini is named sue so I figure it's from the song, much happier with this over the last mini. Used a new backdrop and a second light. The base is probably temporary but I am very happy with my glazing on this, tho still far from perfect. Please C&C ;)

    Male gunsmith

    Soooo this guy has to previous attempts made on it and both ended up in a jar of pinesol, for some reason this miniature gives me problems and I am still not completely happy with him but he is off my desk now. The yellow coat in particular was a real pain. He will be an NPC in a shadowrun campaign representing a self appointed wasteland peacekeeper. As a side not he reminds me of billy Connelly in the second boondock saints movie. C&C away and don't hold back ;)
  21. I finished of the Ice Golem and Ice Gamin from the Malifaux Children of December Crew. I still have to tackle Rasputina and the Wendigo. I am pretty happy with the paint except for a few spots where the wash dried funny on the Golem. The snowy basing material I used didn't turn out the way I had hoped. It seems a little thin and grainy to me. It also gets EVERYWHERE. I tried to keep it off the rim of the bases for the pics but it was a losing battle. Maybe next time I will put some fine ballast on before applying the snow, or just use the ballast and paint it. Anyone have any suggestions on snow bases? C&C is appreciated, thanks.

    The Hanged

    Just a couple of creepy minis I've been working on between other things (Rope guy was painted up a couple of months ago, Wire guy last week). Didn't put too much time or effort into either of them, but I think they turned out really good. Comments and criticisms are, as always, most appreciated.
  23. I had originally started painting a chibi wizard for the Resolutionary Painting challenge. He is turning out better than I expected so I want to spend extra time on him and do some extra shading and highlighting. Due to the month being super effeicient at taking up my free time I don't think I will be able to finish him and 3 others to keep up with the challenge so I am going to put him off for a while. Instead I am going to paint up the Ice Golem and Ice Gamins from the Children of December crew I bought a couple years ago. They should be easier (famous last words!) to finish by the end of the month. Here is what I have got so far. The colors I am using are: Basecoat - 29814 - Ice Blue Shade/Wash - Citadel Drakenhof Nightshade Highlights will be 09021 - Snow Shadow and 09063 - Ghost White The gamin already have the wash applied. The golem still needs the basecoat finished.
  24. So this was an interesting little project that I worked on this month. it really drove me insane with some of the details. Even had to break out some new brushes. used some size 10 brushes, the bigger 1 and 0 brushes that I usually use simply would not work here. I am mostly loving the details that i was able to bring out. The only one that really gave me a headache though was baby kade. he came in three parts and none of those parts were keyed very well so the glue wouldnt hold him together. It required a couple of strategic pins. one for his head/tophat and the other for his arm holding the dollie. overall i really do love the models and the way that the paints came out. do wish though that i could have put a little more time in to getting a better effect on candy's face, but it is decent enough for now.
  25. Well, Here is a Dreamer Avatar that I got to paint a little while ago (for a client). All together, I think he came out rather well- the detail on the mini is really neat, and the concept is simply outstanding. I had some instructions on certain colors, Honestly, this mini was terrific to paint, and my only complaint about it is that Wyrd discontinued it (along with the other Avatar minis). I'd really love for them to have their 'classic' minis available for some of us. While I can see him being used as the Neverborn Emissary, I honestly think he'd work quite well simply proxying the part of Lord Chompy bits on the table. I've also posted him up to CMON for anyone who cares to vote.
