Malifaux: Colette Starter Box Pt. 4

by Valander on 02-05-2011 at 07:43 PM
As promised, the final post with my Malifaux girls. I didn't take step-by-steps, because, well, I covered the technique I was using fairly well in my last post. I still did the juicing technique, and I'm getting used to it; I can definitely see applications where it will be ideal for achieving the look I want.

Anyway, pictures!



I normally don't do such bright colors (been mostly painting Cryx stuff for Warmachine, and not too many

Malifaux: Colette Starter Box Pt. 3

by Valander on 13-04-2011 at 04:10 AM
As promised, here's the next model in my Colette starter box. Still using the juicing method, and this time, I managed to take in-progress shots. I'll give a walkthrough on this one to give the general idea of the process, but I'll probably not do this for future models, because it really adds a lot of time to the work to pause and grab the camera all the time. ;)

The Primed Model
First, here's a shot of what the model looked like after priming. If you refer to part 1 of this

Malifaux: Colette Starter Box Pt. 2

by Valander on 05-04-2011 at 04:22 AM
Continued some work on my Colette starter box for Malifaux. I am experimenting with the "juicing" technique for this whole set. This basically means using really, really thin paint and doing multiple glazes to achieve the desired tones and blending. So far, I'm kinda liking it.

I didn't take shots of each step because, well, I suck. ;) Here's the finished Mannequins. Unfortunately, the pic is a little bit washed out; I still have to find the best settings on my camera.

Malifaux: Colette Starter Box Pt. 1

by Valander on 26-03-2011 at 07:07 AM
Originally, I thought I would write up a single blog post detailing my walk-through of painting up the Colette starter box for Malifaux, but I think that might actually make the post a bit too long. So, I'm going to break it up into smaller chunks as I work through the stages, rather than saving it all up. :)

Speaking of airbrushes...
In my last post, I talked a bit about some of my experiences with using my trusty Aztek airbrush. Well, I broke it out again to start on this project.

My Thoughts on Beginning Airbrushing

by Valander on 25-03-2011 at 06:43 AM
Not too long ago, I picked up a used Aztek A4709 airbrush on ebay. I played around with it some, and decided that I liked it, so recently got a brand new Aztek A7778 (the A4709 is a resin body, while the A7778 is a metal body). The trigger action is better, and I like the weight of the gun more. Anyway, there seems to be a fairly growing trend with airbrushes and our hobby, so I thought I'd post some of my thoughts after having messed with one for a few models now.

Airbrushes are Cheatin'!
