Malifaux: Halloween Horror 4!

Posted in Miniatures with tags , , on October 29, 2013 by Sean

More scary ghosts for Halloween…

This time it’s from Kirai’s crew from Malifaux. The theme is Japanese ghosts, and they’re quite angry ladies.

Datsue-Ba is the archetypical old hag. I painted her with muted colors, emphasizing her wretchedness with stronger highlights and shading, making her kimono look ratty and filthy. I did the same with her hair.  I added a small blessing on the ground before her, stained with fresh blood.

Ikiryo is the cursed soul of Kirai, so she had to look nice and scary. She has the reverse of Kirai’s color scheme, with a dirty white robe (the color of death) and a purple sash. Her hair is a mass of black, streaked with white. Both Ikiryo and Datsue-ba have similar palid dead skin, the result of washes and highlighting.


Malifaux: Oiran and Gamins

I’ve returned to Malifaux, with more for my long-standing client’s Arcanists gang. More fire and ice units. Both pics have the three miniatures with a second rear view for a better ‘in-the-round’.

First, it’s the Oiran. The geisha-theme is interesting, though I find the detail on the plastics was a bit smooth and shallow. Plus lots of details were far too tiny for my liking. I compensated with bright and contrasting color palettes. One detail I’m happy with is the cherry blossom paintings on the fans of the turquoise Oiran. The yellow and red robe of the right-most is also nice.

Second are some Metal Gamin. They were a much simpler color scheme, with dull metal, a bit of rust, and some internal orange glow.

Malifaux Mercs

Once more, we return to Malifaux. By now, my client’s Arcanist crew is truly giant, with nearly all the options for any occasion.

First is a pair of Outcasts, Hans and a Convict Gunslinger, alongside Jack Daw himself.

Next is Joss and a Wendigo. I included an insert showing the Wendigo from the other side.

I matched the colors on the miniatures’ cards (according to the client’s wishes), with a little change for my taste.

For more of the Arcanist crew, check the rest of the gallery.



More Malifaux!

Here’s another update of a client’s (by now) huge Malifaux crew. He’s using Arcanists, so he has Rasputina and Marcus, and the assorted crew members that work best with them.


First it’s the Avatar of Famine, the ascended form of Rasputina. A simple miniature, but a nice color scheme helps, plus it is rather big.

Next, the Blessed of December. I was told to match the art closely, so we get this deep purple beast with icy mane.

After that, a group of mercenaries, including Taelor, Von Schill, Gunslinger, and McTavish (and his gator). More to come!

Malifaux Beasts

Here is another selection of beasts from Malifaux, to go with the Marcus crew for a client.

Fire and Ice, part 2

Posted in Miniatures with tags , on July 28, 2012 by Sean

Continuing on Malifaux projects, here are Marcus and his henchwomen, as well as assorted small minions and critters. These are of course compatible with the Rasputina crew from earlier. The fire and ice bases carry through to give the crew(s) continuity. For the most part, the client wanted me to follow the card art color schemes.

First are a Hoarcat Pride, Gunslinger, and Jackalope.

Next, are the Student of Conflict, Iggy, and the Arcane Effigy.

Finally, the Arcanist master, Marcus (right), with Myranda and Kaeris.

Malifaux: Fire and Ice

Posted in Miniatures with tags , on June 15, 2012 by Sean

Continuing the Malifaux miniatures, here are another batch of Arcanists. These are more minions for Rasputina’s crew.

The client wants a ‘fire and ice’ theme, so Rasputina’s associated models are getting ice/snow bases, while fiery models get fire/lava bases.

Here are a selection of Fire Gamins, as well as an Essence of Power, themed to fire to match the Gamins.

The Snow Storm follows the painted example, except I went with a pure icy blue on the big guy. More to follow.
