Ghosts of Random Rursdays Past: Ape with Stone Sword

On Thursdays, I like to take a break from my army projects.  Instead, I try to do something that I can start and complete all in one evening.

I’ve decided to participate in Wyrd’s summer painting contest, as an excuse to pick up some Malifaux models.  One of the contest rules is no posting about it before the contest ends, so I’ll post about an old model instead.

I painted this guy at a paint’n’take event at Kublacon in 2012.  This was with the paints and brushes provided by the event, which were not quite up to my normal standards.  It was a lot of fun to work within the constraints though (which paint bottle isn’t completely dried?  where can I find/make a highlight color?  are there any brushes with any kind of point?).  It was also the first time I did a model entirely in one sitting, which eventually lead to Random Rursdays.

Ape with Stone Sword

I don’t know who made this model, although I think he’s pretty cool.  I’m happy with the skin, fur, and sword.  I’m less happy with the base (it’s kind of a goofy color), loincloth, and necklace.
