“These people just don’t appreciate the care that goes into my work.”
“Too true, Master,” his assistant grunted as he leveraged a large iron bar in an attempt to dislodge the cover.
“Who does he think he is to kick me out of my own morgue? And Justice? That blind skrewk couldn’t be more pompous.”
“Skrewk, sir?” Sebastian asked, and with a final jerk on the bar, the manhole cover came up like the cork off a bottle of champagnee. It rolled down the street and spun a few times before coming to a ringing halt.
“It’s a term of resentment that I’ve invented. I’m testing it out,” McMourning stated matter-of-factly before he set off down the manhole.
– Dead Man’s head, Malifaux Core Rulebook.
Dr. Douglas McMourning all finished on his new shiny morgue base. Spiced it up a bit and gave him a big bag ‘o bodyparts for convenience!
Douglas was probably my first proper attempt at blood spatter effects, Pyramid head being the very very first. Blood effects is the Internet renowned Tamiya clear red mixed with GW black ink, spread out with a single straw from an old dish-brush.
Originally, I had planned to give him a tartan-like shirt, but after comparing to standard stripes, it just didn’t look as good. Now he almost feels like a pool player from behind.
Besides from the left part of his face, which was damn near impossible to get right due to his hand blocking, he was a blast to paint. Hell, 95% of the Malifaux range is an absolute joy to paint.
