      I'm deep in the guts of my first mini, Perdita Ortega. I thought I'd start with her. Plan is to do Nino (The one holding the dynamite?) next as he's my least fav of the group. I'd hate to leave him last and run out of steam. Good luck Shades! I'll post pics as mini's get finished.

        Thanks, Scott! Good luck to you, too, good sir. This is going to be a fun challenge. I may be working on factions for Carnevale, Alkemy, and Dust Warfare, all at the same time!

          Well I knocked off Perdita, the boss of the crew tonight. Here's some quick pic's. The sculpt would not be what I would call... subtle. Though I'm sure she has a good sense of humour and all that jazz...






          I'd say maybe 8hrs. I don't think even if I was going "Balls Out'" on the mini I would have put too much more time into her. I think it's a pretty straightforward mini. Myabe too many little details in places like the belt buckles and gauntlet thingy's. Still a pretty cool mini. Next up is Papa Loco I think.

          How are you making out there Shades?

                That is some fine work there, Scott! Wow, you're coming out of the gate way ahead of me. Both in turnaround and quality. I'm glad to hear you knocked this out in 8 hours. I knew you were capable of fast turnaround. How do you feel about the pace? I think you're right -- there's not much more that the model needs. Any more time spent on it would be in the "diminishing returns" area. It might be too early to tell, but does painting this model in that timeframe prompt you to tweak any of your regular habits? Or is it just a matter of applying a different tools for different occasions, and your practices remain unchanged?

                I'll repost Ramos later today, so we can show the faction leaders side-by-side in the thread. I had a painting party with friends last night, but I ended up painting Alkemy figures instead! I would have worked on my Malifaux Arachnids, but I still need to prime all of the newly assembled ones.

                  So here's Ramos, at least what I have so far. There's still some work I want to do on him.



                  Your Perdita is a better paintjob than my Ramos. I grant you the first round, Mr. Radom. That said, I will say that Ramos here was painted to this stage in only 2 hours, so that's probably worth a few extra brownie points.


                  Here's what I was working on last night, when I should have been working on this Ladder Challenge!

                    I do like the Alchemey figs, and the Ramos looks slick.

                    I will say for my part that I haven't had to really change any of my habits so far. Just having a focus on getting them done in a timely fashion and making sure I don't waste time thinking too much about colour selection etc. seems to be working for now.

                        great job guys on your crews... Both your masters are looking great (even though some of you are not so focused on the challenge LOL)


                        I guess Normski is the only one not ballsy enough to tackle a whole crew...

                            I spent Sunday morning experimenting with the cobblestones. I think I have a little too much variety of color, and it looks a little too mosaic-like.

                            Do you guys think I should see if the wash unifies it to the right degree, or should I go ahead and unify the base colors a little more, before washing it?

                              i'm thinking a wash alone will help the unification. can always go with a couple or more washes if it isn't unified enough after one.
