First Resurrectionists, now jumping into work on a Guild model? All will be explained soon…
Work has commenced on Ryle, the pseudo-lobotomised cyborg:
The skin was painted in a similar way to the Punk Zombies in my previous post, but leaving off the final and very pale layer and also replacing the slimy green glazing with a simple grey one instead.
I may of gone a little overboard with the blood, but Ryle is a crude steampunk cyborg and as of typing, it’s Halloween after all too!
Just another update on the Punk Zombies – flesh tones are done on all three:
It only took two hours a piece to get the flesh done from basecoat to finishing gore splatterings. I did however think something was missing so I did what I’ve been doing on my Skaven – added some subtle patches of yellow-green glazes to really make them look undead.
I’m still pondering what colour(s) to do the hair and clothing though!
Malifaux is one of those systems I’ve dabbled with over the last five years, first in 2010 having painted up a handful of the 1st edition. More recently I tried again in 2014 only to basically rage-quit because I wasn’t prepared for how fragile and fiddly the 2nd edition plastics can be (evil glances at the Rotten Belles.) 😦
Anyway I wanted something simple I could work on inbetween Skaven so I don’t burn out on the little rats.
Punk Zombies are one of those sets I was waiting for, but weren’t available seperately tip after I gave up on Malifaux last year. A year and a half later, being a bit less impulsive with miniatures and having thought the assembly through properly – I thought I’d try again.
I did the skin in one session using the box art as colour reference – although mine is browner and less saturated. Aside from a few touchups I’m ready to get the rest of the model done so I can bash my way through the other two. Suggestions for trouser and mohawk colours are appreciated, I’m thinking black leather and crimson red respectively at the moment.
As a side note, the Skaven Warlord is still being worked on and the plan to finish it by end of October.
As a continuation of this previous post back in late August, my contribution for Warseer’s Tale of Age of Sigmar for month 2 will be the plastic Warlord hero as well as a single Rat Ogor.
Work has continued on both, first the Warlord has hit the painting phase:
The beady-eyed among you might of noticed the couple areas I’ve added a few sculpted buboes. This is a character from Clan Septik after all!
Speaking of which, I’m struggling to come up with a suitable name for him myself, suggestions anyone?
Moving onto the Rat Ogor, and as suggested on Warseer I added a Warpfire Gun grafted onto its limb for that extra firepower.
I struggled for a while to work out how I would make such a firearm, but in the end I went for using;
– an old paintbrush plastic protector tube
– part of some flame effect from the Burning Chariot of Tzeentch kit
– of course more sculpting work!
It stills needs some rivets for detailing and a couple more ragged bandages but otherwise it’s nearly done.
Naturally the model needed a whole rash of buboes and gross growths, so I’ve been adding them to its back because I thought it looked a bit bare otherwise. Aside from a few more scattered around his body for variety and some muscles getting done redefinition, this Rat Ogor is not far from the priming stage for painting later on this month!
