A Few New Models

Just a short post this time. I wanted to show off a few new models that didn't quite fit into other posts. 

First up is Angelica, for Colette's crew. Angelica is the Mistress of Ceremonies and apparently likes to bring her foot stool with her on all her outings!

Second up is the Mechanical Rider. I thoroughly enjoyed this model as it's very different I every other Malifaux model I've painted. I tried to keep as close to the box art as possible, which made the metal interesting. 

Thoughts, comments and critique are, as always, welcome!

Children of December: Rasputina

I mentioned previously that my first ever box of Malifaux was the 'Children of December' box - Rasputina's crew. I also mentioned that, since I had rebased my Arcanist crews, I needed a new CoD box. Below are the results.

Ice Gamin

Also, after months of searching, I finally managed to find a Snow Storm. Or rather, I gave up trying to source one in the UK so found a good site based in the USA that had reasonable shipping charges. 

That arrived at last and I thoroughly enjoyed painting it.

As usual, any comments or questions you may have are welcome!

M&SU Assets : Ansalea Kaeris

Today I finally finished painting the last Arcanist crew to complete the Faction (excluding Ironsides as no models currently exist for her or her crew) - Ansalea Kaeris and the M&SU Assets Box.

How I Paint: Ice

I'll be honest, one of my favourite types of blog to write are the How To Paint series. It was also the thing I enjoyed most about working for Games Workshop - teaching people how to paint. If I could find a way to do that as part of StormFront Studios (My Commission Painting business) I would be one happy bunny.

Ice Golem, painted using this guide.

Today, I wanted to show you how I paint ice. You'll need the paints above, and a good drybrush. I use the Citadel Large Drybrush for every step shown below. There are also other ways to paint ice, this is just the super-quick way I do it.

How I Paint: Brilliance

This week I was asked how I painted my Jakob Lynch crews, specifically the 'Brilliance' (that is the glowy blue bits). Sadly, I'd just finished painting a commission crew which would have been perfect for a step-by-step article. 

Dark Debts

Alas, until such time as I get another Jakob Lynch commission (or finally decide that I do want a Jakob Lynch crew for myself...) this article will have to do!

Sorry, No Blog Today...

Apologies for there not being a blog today, I spent all of last night and the vast majority of today in hospital having blood tests, medication, various tests, and a damn cannula shoved in the soft of my elbow...

Commission: University of Transmortis

In addition to the Seamus (Joker) crew, I was also asked to build and paint the University of Transmortis box. This box isn't just four very cool models for the Resurrectionist faction, it also includes three story encounters (one of which is a solo 'solitaire' style game).

After the break I'll be showing off the contents of the box, including shots of the stat cards and the painted models.
