I talked myself into buying this box for the bonus Dark Debts model, in hopes of a translucent Huggy or something. I scored a opaque purple lady Illuminated, which wasn’t so exciting. But I also got some Black Blood Shamans (Shamen?)!
I tried to give the wings a bit more depth. As usual, my blending isn’t very smooth, but it passes the two foot test.
Now that I’ve got the Shaman, I really need to get the Nephilim box so I can start pumping out the Young. I’ve gotten a surprising amount of work out of Black Blood Pustule, however.
The rest of my Adepticon Wyrd purchase, and my first Wave 2 Neverborn Master.
A simple young boy, wandering through the dreamscape of Malifaux. I wish his little friend looked more like a miniature, more cuddly Lord Chompy Bits.
I tried using an leopard spot airbrush stencil on Chompy arms, which gave it a nice mottled pattern. The wash I used ended up almost completely covering it, such that it’s too subtle to see. The lesson here is to not try to be subtle with that kind of pattern, and trust the wash to tone it down.
The Daydreams are just so cuddly. They’re so small I kept to a single color, just varying the tone to give some texture.
Coppelius is the Cthulhu monster that so much of Malifaux is clearly missing. His head has an interesting texture to it. I wish more Wyrd models had these kinds of textures on the surfaces. It makes my life so much easier than trying to paint them on.
The Alps have a fun variety of poses and heads. My favorite is the smoker. I painted their tunics to match the Daydreams, although it came out dark enough to be pretty hard to see.
The visuals of post-apoc always get me, so Wreck Age had an immediate appeal. I got a demo in at Adepticon from the very hard working people at the booth. Even though the game is a bit more story-driven than I have room for in my life right now, and was way overbudget, I couldn’t help but buy a few models.
I ended up selected the Reclaimer Zealot starter, because among all the blisters it spoke to me the most, even if it’s not the most post-apocish. My object source lighting is still somewhat hit-or-miss.
On the other hand, I’m pretty pleased with how the robes turned out.
The guy at the booth tossed in an Arhk Trooper model, which I graciously accepted. I guess I managed to come out with some of the highest tech models in the line.
I have a vision of the time where I’d be part of a group that does more rotating games, where there’d be room for this kind of game on a six week rotation or something. And some of the other random stuff I’ve picked up. For now, they make fun hobby diversions.
