A little elegance for the Guild...

The penultimate model of the Lucius Guild crew is finished.  While being a much prettier model than Ryle, the Guild Guard was no fun to paint.  She's very bitty and fiddly at the front, and the coat just wouldn't look right, so I kept having to touch up the blending.

The face was also a bit tricky - the casting isn't great for a start, so getting the cheekbones highlighted properly was a bit of a challenge.  However, the eyes were a dream to paint, and I think they're some of my best eye jobs.

The colours are my standard Guild colour scheme, and possibly my last use of my favourite Charadon Granite colour method - farewell old friend!  The hair was Bestial Brown, shaded with Devlan Mud, then highlighted with Bestial Brown and Squig Orange - it's the first time I've used Squig Orange, and I love the auburn colour I've got from it.

The base is another of the Dark Templar's Malcontent range, which really fit in well with these miniatures - people doing dirty work in a dirty place. :-)

Lucius is up next, and then it's finishing some ongoing projects while I work out what to do next...

As always, comments and criticism welcome!


  1. "very bitty and fiddly at the front"

    Well, that's us girls for you mate! ;)

    That's a great figure and lovely paintjob :)

    1. Haha! Very true! ;)

      Thank you very much! :)

  2. I have liked your approach to colour with these guys - so very different from the standard Malifaux look for this particular crew and a very refreshing change.

    Have to admit I can't wait to see what you do with Lucius!

  3. Thanks chaps!

    No pressure for Lucius then? I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to paint him yet. The red coat is a definite, but other than that, I haven't really decided...
