Wow! Adepticon is looming overhead, and tomorrow at this time I'll be on my way north to join the fray. The past few weeks have become a bit of a blur between work, sleep, and Malifaux. Last week I finished up the last of my miniatures that I would need for Adepticon, and now I can finally share them with you!
Let's begin with the Brutal Effigy.
Everything about this model came out perfect! The shading, the colors, the Object Source Lighting. I have too much fun just looking at this piece. It's definitely one of those where everything just came together. The OSL came out much better than I expected it to. When I first put it down I had tried to lightly drybrush the layers down. I went with orange, and then some shades of yellow. The only problem had been that the drybrushing came out too heavy. I had some wash mixed up for the coat and went with a few alternating layers of wash and drybrushing to help lower the effect, and the overall result looks fantastic!
Moving on, our next subject has taught me a valuable lesson:
I will not buy a base that has as much stuff going on as the Mechanical Rider's! I love how the piece itself came out, and it looks great! The cape came out looking really good. It could use a little more definition, but overall it doesn't look entirely like a flat color. The flames were a bit of a different style for me. I had been getting tired of using the traditional color of fire, and while I wanted to go with a little more blue in the purple, I'm happy with the end result.
Last but not least is the man of danger, Willie:
This is one of Wyrd's newer plastic miniatures, and I was a
little surprised. When he was unpainted he looked like he'd be a
little tricky, but as I started to actually put layers down it quickly
became clear that he'd be a lot easier than anticipated.
If you take a glance you can see traces of a lit fuse.
For as simple as he was, I have to compliment the face of the sculpt. It is very dynamic, and has a lot of character to it. So much is said by how he's posed coupled with the look on his face. Willie is a great example of what Wyrd can do with their plastics, and I hope their future models hold up to this caliber.
Over the weekend I'm going to be snapping photos of miniatures and tables. I plan to share my finds with all of you next week. If you're at Adepticon feel free to keep an eye out for me.
