Ashes to ashes, Rust to rust

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Some more wip pics. Bases still missing, sadly… Ah well!
It’s progress, at least.
This time a Guardian and a Watcher.

Worthy of mention is that this is the first malifaux models that I did not approach with non-metallic metals, but normal metallic paint. Rust, scratches and patina felt more at home making in that environment.

    Nice weather look you’ve created there! Is this the first time you’ve tried it?

      Thanks a lot!
      Yeah, it’s the first time, so didn’t really dare/want to go NMM, but so far it seems to work out pretty well.

        Woah! I bow down to you at my computer in a non-strange kind of way. I’ve been very very cautious of trying to do rust as I figure I’ll just stuff it up somehow.

        Noob Question: NMM?

      • markus says:

        Hah, thanks! Yeah it was a bit..scary at first. initially it looks really awkward, but the more you play around with those reds/oranges, the more awesome it gets. Try it out sometime, I’ll gladly share whatever myself-noobish tips I might have to offer.

        NMM stands for non-metallic-metal. Basically you do metal with shades of gray, gold with shades of brown/yellow etc.

        Haha thanks for the offer! When I do get around to it, I’ll harass you for help.

        Ah! I’ve tried doing that at one stage, but it turned out just looking like toned colours 🙂
