I think this is okay under current rules, didn't want to do a thread per mini.

 

Here's Pandoras crew all primed and based on some cork:-

Next I basecoated their skin, since they're all ghosts (I think) and I needed 1 colour to tie them all together, I used Vampiric Shadow on all of them:-

And then I basecoated the smoky, twisty lower halves of the Poltergeist and the Woes with a 3:1 mix of Vallejo Hexed Lichen/Nightmare Black:-

I also meant to paint the strand of smoke from Pandoras Box of Mystery the same colour, but I forgot.

They are some nice looking models. How does the [baby] tie in with them?

 

Ditto.

 

Also, your paint application is SMOOTH! What do you do to apply the paint so smoothly?

BRAVO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh wow, are these gorgeous !

I have NO IDEA where you get your mini's but honestly;

these are so fantastic, they are exiting, and so dynamic, motion filled,

they make me smile just looking at them UN-painted.

I can't want to see what you do with them !

I don't really know. I'd like to read up on Malifauxs background, but not enough to spend £80+ on OOP rulebooks.

 

On his stat card he (and the little girl) are listed as Woes too, so I assume they're also spirits from Pandoras Box, but can disguise themselves to catch people when their guard is down.

Nothing special, it's just thinned down and applied in several layers.

In summary the Neverborn (this crew represents some of them) are the native inhabitants of Malifaux, which is linked to Earth through a portal known as the Breach.

 

Some Neverborn have no real appearance - such as the Poltergeist and the Sorrows, however some take on the appearance of Humans, such as Pandora, Candy and Baby Kade. They are not spirits, they are flesh and blood, however it is probably safe to say that they take on the appearance to lure them into a false sense of security - there is a lot more in the current rulebook (and in the older editions), and some of it can be found on the Wyrd Games website as well.

 

This isn't a crew that interests me personally, but I do like the way you are painting them.

Thanks for the clarification! Good to know I was sort of on the right track!

 

Like I said, I'd love to get into the background a bit more, but I'd much rather spend that sort of money on some more crew boxes than a load of old rulebooks.

Hopefully they come out with that back story complication book they've mentioned, one day.

Did some work on the ghosts.

 

Went through the rest of the Vampiric Skin triad on their skin. Unfortunately once they dried there was very little difference between the colours:-

Since I needed to shade down their purple bits with some Black Wash, I thought I'd try glazing it on their flesh, see if it would add some contrast:-

It worked somewhat, but I'm still not very good at glazing so now I need to tidy up all that blotchiness :down:

These are difficult models to paint and I think you're doing well with them. I had a problem with the Vampric Skin triad. There just wasn't enough contrast between layers so I did the same thing as you. Used a black glaze then worked back up.  Once you clean it up I think it will be fine.

The V.1 Malifaux rulebooks are now available in PDF for $7 each if you were interested (link can be found in the latest news on the Wyrd homepage).

 

The ghosts are looking good - my experience with Wyrd's plastic is that they don't have the depth of detail as the metals do, so not easy to paint!

      I received a request for more modern female minis who weren't just pulp, so I pulled these. Did one before I realized I was correct in hating assembly. I'm not sure how reasonable it is to expect people to glue pieces so small I could fit at least 10 on my pinkie fingernail. A lot of cuts that really didnt seem very necessary.
       
      No cleanup yet,  most of the bits were too small to clean up before gluing.

      Hello guys,
       
      It's been a while since I posted a mini, as I've been sick, been on a business trip, and just generally busy, but here is a figure I just completed last night, a Julie Guthrie figure from "All Things Dark and Dangerous" back in the eighties:
       

       
      Upon retrospect I'm wondering if I should have given her eyebrows, don't know if without looks very unnatural?
       
      In any case, here's the "original" set of figures, with the delightful ladies that came in the original blister pack:
       

       
      Hope you enjoy!

      Hi there, this is my first attempt at OSL. I was going for drama, but it does seem a little heavy handed. I learned alot painting it. I'm fairly pleased with it.
      Feedback and questions welcome. Thanks for looking!

      For the last few months since Reapercon, I've been focusing on pumping out minis to avoid the rut I got into last year. When I saw that Reaper had released the ghost sailors as metal figures, well... I knew what one of my October projects was going to be. I loved these guys as part of the Bones IV kickstarter, but I've not enjoyed painting plastic minis as much since getting back into metals at the Reapercon melt table, so I was psyched to order them and put in an order that night... Most of the rest I had from Reapercon, although I think I picked up Labella there too.
       
      Either way, these guys painted up gorgeous and easy using my go-to one-two spirit technique! As a firm believer in spooky blue ghosts, I started by priming them white, then giving them a couple layers of Irrisen Blue from the new Pathfinder paintset... My old blue standby was from the HD line and the bottle has faded to the point of illegibility, but it was almost identical. Then once it's dry, I drybrush heavily with Linen White (pure white comes out looking starched, and bluer whites don't show on the blue, but linen is perfect) and... call it a day. Decorate the bases, maybe some pizza... 's good. That said, minis painted using this technique meet my #1 requirement for ghost minis: They're distinctive on the table!
       
      I debated doing some OSL, but decided that it would wash the bases out, unfortunately. I like it better this way, with the bases nice and grounded, and the ghosts spooky and glowing! Lots of fun base details on these, too - 10/10 recommend picking them up if you have any sort of use for them!
       
      Miniatures involved (not enough tags for them all): 03965: Ghost Pirate Cook, 03966: Ghost Pirate Quartermaster, 03967: Ghost Pirate Captain, 03968: Ghost Pirate Bosun, 03969: Drowned Nymph Ghost: Banshee, 03718: Ghost Bride, 03475: Labella DeMornay, Banshee, 03170: Lurien, Ghost, 14168: Gauren, Necropolis Hero, 03799: Female Wraith
