Today I took a day off of work to sit back and relax. I ended up having a couple of friends over to work on Malifaux miniatures in all ways shapes and forms.
Just a bunch of the guys working on hobby stuff! There was so much going on, and much was accomplished. Both of my friends are getting into the hobby feet first, and today I showed them the simple joy of basing.
Since basing is a requirement for many miniature games at conventions, having your models based is becoming an important factor. The above picture is about 95% of the models we based, and nearly all of the ones that are in my buddy's collection.
After basing we kind of split into two camps. On one side was Grey getting his new Lucas McCabe box cut off the sprue and glued together.
There's only one or two figures left for him to do, and they're looking pretty sweet!
Meanwhile I decided to get some paint on my Fire Gamin. They're almost done, but I'm saving them for later. Instead I'd like to focus on Mordequi's (not his real name) Punk Zombie.
This model ranks as one of the first he has painted. I gave a little assistance with the flesh/eyes on the skull, but otherwise it's all his vision. I really like how he got the colors to go together. The blend of purple and blue seems to give the model a shimmer/sheen look which is pretty cool!
Overall it was a wonderful way to spend the day. Painting, hobby stuff, and friends. A great start to the weekend!
