Link – he come to town!

Monday, January 2nd, 2017

I was about to split the post in two, but who cares, really?

I made myself some demon twins for Malifaux; Lelu & Lilitu. Albeit with more fitting clothes, of course! Pardon for the variation in picture quality, I threw in a few WIP pictures. Sculpting hands is hard work!

Tiny model-time. A Mysterious Effigy for my Neverborn, Malifaux again.

He has my eyes!

 

Lastly I attempted to sculpt Hoffmanns totem, The Mechanical Assistant. It was a mishmash of greenstuff and old bits I had lying around, and in the end it sadly ended up a bit too big, scale-wise. Anyways, it’s done and I don’t think he’ll see play anytime soon anyways!

Malifaux battlereport 2016-08-23

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

You can hear the clatter of rain outside; it’s muffled as if run through a filter, but it’s still there. The room is empty save for an old, rusted ,steel-framed bed in one of the corners. There’s no sheets, just a mattress. It doesn’t feel that bad, despite its spartan look – at least it’s not the bare floor. If you had to describe your environment in one word, it would be “Grey”.

The sound of rain is gone now. You turn over in the bed and spot the television set in the middle of the room. The antenna hopelessly stretches up towards the ceiling like an old wizened willow. You wonder why it’s there since there’s nowhere to plug it in. You also wonder, briefly, why you don’t focus your attention on how it got there. The screen wakes up. First static, then slowly merging in a myriad of bright colors which fill the room with ghost-like multicolored rays penetrating the filtered Grey.

I wonder what’s on.

Doppelganger

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

Not even a witty title! This blog is truly starting to crumble.

Since Gothcon is coming up next weekend I’ve rushed out a (probably) last model before going to the Malifaux tournament; the Neverborn Doppelgänger.

The paint job was done to match my Lucius crew, so purple and I figured it would look nice to give her a porcelain mask/face to fit in.

In an effort to keep it short and to the point, here are the pictures.   
 

And a bonus! A Synth briefcase jam, with random budget synths squeezed into a briefcase. Because I could.

Polar Teddy

Polar Bear-Teddy done for my Nintendo-based Malifaux Dreamer crew. The model is a slightly converted limited edition Malifaux Miss Ery/Teddy.

Teddy is based on the pink swim pants-wearing polar bear from Ice climbers. For those that are unaware of Ice climbers, it’s a Nintendo game where you climb… Ice. And it also features a polar bear. So there, reason enough!

Added sunglasses, swim pants and a torn poncho, so nothing extremely exotic, modeling wise. It was fun to sculpt a really tiny Nintendo console by his feet though!

Paint job was kept quick and dirty, since the amount of time I have available for painting is diminishingly small at the moment (as always?).

I know I said the Dreamario project was over, but who cares. Fun ideas warrants more models. Next up will probably be some Waldgeists.

Pulling it off with sexy pants

Guns don’t kill people, games do!

Aaand obligatory WIP

Finally some documentation – Lucius crew & Lincon tournament

For someone that lives and dies for documentation, I sure am horrible at documenting my models.

Knock knock. Who’s there? Boo. Boo who? Yeah, I’m sad of reused jokes as well.

Realized I needed more than one insidiousl madness for Malifaux.  Since they’re great and all.

So a week or so ago I went ahead and sculpted myself two more (you can have a maximum of  three in a game).

Most stuff to mention is probably best read in the original post, but here’s a picture of the shy trio all together. Someone obviously has their back turned towards the middle one.

They’re all 100% greenstuff. Basically a ball with a mouth, so nothing revolutionary, but still.

If there were no bad people, there would be no good lawyers

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

…As Guild Lawyers graduate from wrangling mundane proceedings, they begin to notice that what they used to only accomplish symbolically – shredding testimonies, redefining meanings, challenging and remaking the facts themselves – is spilling out of the courtroom and into their lives. With gleeful sophistry and only a little surgically applied willpower they can redefine the reality going on around them, and impose their definition over what was there before. For what’s reality but a pattern, what’s a law but a pattern to define and control other patterns, what’s a lawyer but something that defines and controls the law?..

– Malifaux  2E, Crossroads

Best flufftext ever.

First two models finished since the birth of my second son, four months ago. As far as four months can be considered a quick paintjob, they’ve been a quick paintjob. Lawyers are some seriously cool models and it feels good finally finishing them.

The first one is lecturing someone about some possible interpretation of the law and the second one is unreasonably happy because someone spilled his wine, which means lawsuit!

 

Preparing for LinCon and Malifaux tourney in about a month, so hopefully more stuff will pop in a bit more regularly.

 

The governors secretary. And a synthesizer.

Just a post I’ve been meaning to post for.. Ages.

Life’s been busy with me having a newborn kiddo and stuff, so very little time has been left for painting. Plus, I’ve had a few non-miniature relates projects up and running as well, so what little ‘hobby time’ I’ve had has actually been spent on other stuff!

Anyways, some months back I painted up Lucius for malifaux, I just never got around to posting or taking pictures. So in order to at least post something, here’s a quick picture of him I snapped right after painting him. Posing arrogantly in front of a lovely Korg Monotribe.

Speaking of other projects, here’s a box for my Korg Volca synthesizer series I designed (and my father might have had some hand in making a reality…).

More stuff incoming related to synths soon!

Display stuff in style, 8-bit style

Friday, April 11th, 2014

Warning, here be a bucket-load of pictures.

 

I know I mentioned a display board in my earlier posts, and after much (much) angst, I finally went through and did it. The big hurdle was to dare to go ahead and potentially ruin my Nintendo transport, which I’d spent quite some time and money to get. Anyways, a separate display board wouldn’t do, so I “manned up” and went ahead.

photo 1

First of all I dryfitted some bases (well, random 30,40 and 50mm stuff to act as bases) just to make sure everyone would actually fit. And as you can see, it is a pretty tight squeeze.

photo 2

I tore up random bits of cork to give the board some height and texture. Plus, I wanted every model to have its own “spot”, so I needed some height to be able to make good slots for the models. The back part of the display board needed to be slightly elevated, so that no model would be completely hidden if viewed from up front.

Afterwards, I marked suitable places with a pencil and cut them out. Afterwards I sprayed the cork black (not shown) and glued the cork onto the lid of the Nintendo. This was the most nervous moments – No going back after this! The empty spot in the middle was left to build another height for Dreamer. Like a lil’ throne.

As with everything in this project, I drenched it in transparent gel and left it to dry for a day and then….

photo 5

I covered it in even more gel. And again, building up a “twisted and muddy” look, since I wanted it to resemble some sort of dystopian dreamscape.

photo 1 (2)

I masked the bare spaces and gave it a good whirl with the black spray. Afterwards, I felt like a proper dunce, because I noticed I didn’t mask good enough and there were some random sputter of black paint on the lid amongst other places.

So goddamn stupid. After a good rubbing with sand paper, I think I got most of it though. Still bugs me I messed up this badly.

 

photo 2 (2)

Around here, it seems like I got sloppy with documentation, because obviously a lot was done between the above picture and the previous one. Anyways, I basecoated the entire thing in GW Scorched Brown, drybrushed it with a Raw Sienna paint from the local hobby store and literally drenched the whole thing in Devlan Mud. I love Devlan mud. Before drenching, I picked out the lil’ details as well – Mushroom, fallen star, block and Kong-barrels.

 

photo 3 (2)

At this point I felt pretty much done, but the board still felt a bit…flat, and boring.

 

photo 4 (2)

So I dabbed a few random flowers and grass tufts about, whipped out the gel again and goo’d the place up. The “rift” thingy I painted with bright green colors to try and emulate a depth to the goo, like it’s pouring out or something. To make the star a bit more morbid, I blooded it up to look as if it had fallen/slided and gotten all messed up. Yeah… Don’t ask.

I also globbed some blood into the power light hole – where it usually is a red diode that marks that the power is on, it’s now dripping blood – ingenious and slightly sociopathic, no!?

 

photo 5 (2)

After a day of drying, this is what it ended up looking like.

photo 3 (4)

Aaand the finished product.

I ended up going over the flowers with some washes, since they looked too bright and cheerful. I noticed during earlier experimentation that if you drench flowers in a bit of dark wash, it ends up looking really twisted and old. Good stuff.
