ToMB Month 1, Part 1: Steam Good, Brass Bad

3 Mar

I’m having a short break from playing Malifaux following Smogcon since we’ve been playing Malifaux every week since we started, and it is good to get a break from it. That being said, I’m still trying to get some painting done and last weekend I made some progress.

Steam Arachnids

IMAG0333

Fairly basic paint job here but I think they look decent enough. They were undercoated with Army Painter Gun Metal spray. Then, the bases were washed with Vallejo Rust, the spiders were washed with GW Nuln Oil and then washed with GW Ironbreaker to lighten them back up. I wasn’t sure what to do with the blue lights on the arachnids themselves ā€“ it is a pretty small detail and I’m not sure my eyesight and hands are up to the challenge of focusing on painting it well.

Brass Arachnid

No picture here because I think it needs revisiting. It was sprayed metal, then I put a blue ink on the pedestal and rust on the spider. I don’t think the blue ink worked well on the pedestal and spider looks a bit plastic. So I’ll revisit these again this coming weekend. I have a spare pedestal to test some paint schemes.

Not much to report other than that, no gaming in so far this month for stated reasons. Next week I’m hoping to get some work done on Howard Langston and revisiting the Brass Arachnid, and if I have time perhaps Joss and Ramos himself.

On an aside, I’ve also been painting some warjacks. Just working on the bases.

These were a really fun change of pace after painting so many undead humanoid models the last few months! Sadly I’ve run out of warjacks to paint. šŸ˜¦
