As I mentioned in yesterdays post, I knocked out painting a fair number of models this weekend. I am very happy with the work accomplished and have actually completed two full crews of Malifaux models. This is great as I will be able to use them on my upcoming trips without putting unpainted models on the table.
First lets take a look at the completed crews. Overall I am happier with the painting on the Guild crew, but at the same time both are at what I would consider a solid table top quality. I have noticed, especially with the Rasputina/Cult of December crew that I should really look into a proper photo light box instead of using a flash.
Guild - Lady Justice Crew:
Arcanists - Rasputina Cult of December Crew:
Now lets take some closer looks:
Executioner: I used an alternate executioner model because I did not like the one Wyrd puts out for the line. This is a grim reaper from Microart Studios, and although he is a bit taller than the other models I think he works out well. I keep him on the 30mm base defined for the executioner, which is whats really important.
Next we have the Cult of December crew. This was a tough crew to paint, with the Gamin and Golem just not coming out the way I wanted. At the end of the day I am comfortable with the models, although I do not think its my best work. If I end up playing them a large amount I will probably purchase a new set to paint to a higher quality.
First we have the Master, Rasputina:
Next we have the golem:

Then we have the December Acolyte:
This crew also contains 3 Ice Gamin, who are little ice daemons. I did not post pictures of these because the flash really washed out how they look.
