What I've been up to recently

 Mostly, I've been involved in other hobbies, like LARPing. I had a big run of events with the painting class and trip to Warhammer World, followed up by some LARP - and while I've had a little free time of late, I've usually been too frazzled for painting. Still, I've started getting some stuff underway and I feel like I'm all queued up ready to go. While I've still got a couple of "trip" posts to write up, I thought I'd let people see what I've been working on!

I've come up with a scheme I like for my Malifaux Scheme Markers. It's relatively simple to do, but requires a couple of coats of wash, so can't just be knocked out in an evening - there's a lot of drying time and faffy steps involved. Still, I feel like I'm about halfway or so, and that I should be able to get them finished up pretty soon.

 I dug out these two old mutants and just finished up a little detailing on them. Still need to get their cousins done.

And I'm trying to get my D&D character painted up. The character is a Tiefling Bard - we're nearly to third level now, so he'll invariably die horribly the moment I've finished his paint scheme! I seem to be doing a lot of blue at the moment - I think whatever I do next will be different, colour wise.

The model is from Hero Forge. It's a bit pricey for what you get - I went with the 'high detail' version. It's a little brittle - I wouldn't want to handle it roughly - but it's not impossible to work with. There is a bit of mottling and rough surfaces from the 3D printing process, but it's good enough what what I want. If you want something specific they can put out, they have pretty much cornered the market, but if you just want a generic human fighter or rogue, I would strongly recommend just going with Reaper or something similar. I had foolishly backed myself into a corner with a Tiefling Bard.

    Keep up the LARP, someone has to do it.
