I actually bought a crew second hand before Christmas, so I've finally now been motivated to paint it up. I love all things zombie, so The Resurrectionists, and particularly Nicodem was an obvious choice for me:
I had about 4 attempts at the vultures neck, and I'm still not 100% on it. I might have another go with it. I've got two more vulture totems to paint but I think I'm going to do their necks in more of a flesh tone.
One thing I like about Malifaux are all the cool bases. This particular model has one of the base inserts from Wyrd:
I'm going for a graveyard theme for this crew. What I was attempting on the tomb stone was a marble effect, which I'm reasonably happy with. I looked around on the Interwebs for some info on painting marble and the couple of sites I looked at recommended using a sponge to add the initial texture. I actually used a stippling brush for mine.
-I painted the whole stone Astronomicon Grey
-Washed with Gryphonne Sepia
-Stippled Codex Grey patches
-Stippled Fortress Grey patches to highlight
-Added thin lines of Fortress Grey to marble it.
The miniatures I've got left in this crew are:
-3 Crooked Men
-2 Vulture totems
-2 Canine Remains
I've also hoping to get a game or two in tonight.
