Wyrd Malifaux

I've been working on a Malifaux set as a commission.  I meant to take good photos, but it ended up being a rush job at the end, as the client wanted to use them for a tournament coming up very soon...So I never got a chance to take a proper pic of them all....just this one:

Click it to make it bigger!

Not the greatest pic, but shows off the goodies pretty well.  One was missing from this pic, as that one was drying from the dullcote while I snapped this pic.  I kinda liked the way the heart turned out on that lovable Teddy.  The heart is just a flat spot, but the client wanted it to look like a heart of ice...The toys on the bears base were all self sculpted...the little duckie being my favorite.  I also liked the little girl, Candy, turned out.  I went for a 'Wednesday Addams' feel to her.

Anyhow, a couple of things I learned from this commission.  One, two weeks isn't enough time for me! Two, I'm probably charging way too little.  Still, I enjoyed it and had fun with it, which is the reason I'm into painting miniatures in the first place. 

Including these minis, I've now finished 33 minis this year.  Quite an achievement for me, as that probably doubles my output in recent years. 

So, now I'll be getting back to my own stuff.  Working on the Incursion British Commandos, and looking foward to moving more minis from the 'to be painted' pile to the 'completed' pile.

Thanks for reading!

Wow, everyone is doing Malifaux/Wyrd lately it seems. Good for them!

The crew looks good, and I'm sure it feels good to have more completed!

Nice and effective freehand and the little toys are a great adition... is that a dragonball ?

The skintone of the little girl also fits amazingly well the mini.
