This crew was sitting on my desk for several weeks but I finally finished Hoffman and his pals. This means that I have painted every starter crew for Guild and I am ready to move on to other factions. I have an un-assembled The M&SU box and a Shadows of Redchapel box sitting here ready for some love.
I bought an airbrush over the holidays and got to try it out on Hoffman’s constructs. I think it really ties the crew together and the red glow looks pretty menacing. I haven’t tried to do any of the non-metallic metallic painting so this crews is basically all gunmetal and bronze. The orange/red really helps to break that up. I also used some of the Citadel technical paints, Typhus Corrosion, Nihilakh Oxide, and Ryza Rust, to give the constructs and Hoffman’s suite some wear and tear. He’d probably keep his buddies in better condition but I wanted to add something other than just metallics. Since Hoffman can use M&SU constructs in his crew I also bought a Rail Golemn. This is a really cool model and I had fun using the airbrush to do more OSL stuff. I don’t think i was very successful with his vent pipes but I got tired of fussing with it.
More pictures can be found here. As always, thanks for stopping by.
Still focusing on Malifaux and Deadzone primarily until Dreadball comes in. Since all of my Deadzone models are painted that leaves me buying a new crew every few weeks and painting it. Since I hadn’t gotten the “Of Metal and Flesh” Guild crew yet, I started into the next faction on my list which is Neverborn.
In Malifaux, the Neverborn are the natives and every other faction are intruders. They are nightmares made real and harbor all types of spirits, demons, and crazy constructs. They also have some of the best looking models in the range, in my opinion. Because of that, I picked up the “No Shelter Here” boxed set along with a Teddy, a box of Beckoners, and a Doppleganger. This gives me a good 50+ SS crew to build upon. The crew mechanics are unique and I think the spirit models are top notch. As with other crews, I tried to stick as close to the book art color scheme as possible. For the basing, I washed the sand with Citadel Drakenhof Nightshade and then brushed Army Painter Deep Blue over top. I used fine green flock instead of static grass to finish off the bases.
Next up on the list is “Of Metal and Flesh”, which will finish out all of the available guild crews. More pictures of these Neverborn models can be found HERE and HERE. Thanks for stopping by.
