Welcome to another Let’s Talk! Chase from the Learned from Gaming Podcast (podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/lear…st/id1266704678) returns to talk about the art of getting games wrong and the iteration process of first learning and then eventually mastering and re-mastering a game system.

A bit of variety now, with one of Malifaux's biggest models, The Fire Golem.This one is from the M2e Backdraft box set, which means I'm short of a couple of apparently so-so extra minions but I do instead have Saboteurs and Fitzsimmons as well (which are all in the painting queue as we speak).He wasn't the easiest model to paint as the flames go in all directions, meaning there isn't a clear orientation to allow you to start with pale white-ish flames and then shade it through to red and even sooty blackAs a result I wasn't really happy with him until I did several more layers and more drybrush-style highlights than I might normally do on a flaming model.The basic technique was to start with a series of very pale and thin yellow washes using watered down paint, and then start adding highlights in progressively darker oranges and even reds until I was happy with the overall look.Managing to pick out all of the bits of brazier holding him together was also not the easiest as the metalwork does rather blend into

Check out what I painted this week and take a look at upcoming projects!
Some progress has been made, never as much as I would like. Most of the current project and the background project now has a base colour and a wash although there are a few I have barely touched. Almost not detailing has been done and that is what generally takes the time. What I have done so far looks pretty good to me. If I pushed it today I would probably finish but I have friends here so that is unlikely to happen. My plan is basically to add another five figures into the mix. If I can finish them next week that would put be back on track. A bit of basing of some more elves (alfar) has been done. These are planned as black alfar for the Viking Game.Today's post is a little bit early so maybe I am being a little bit premature in saying this but I haven't finished any figures again this week. It has been a very busy week for me. Painting has played a major part in it but unfortunately the paint has been emulsion and the objects involved were walls. Someone now has a Slytherin themed bedroom. After a series
Earlier on I was expecting a much busier day. The time of year and the end of daylight savings time, with some lack of sleep made and with what I was expecting to be doing today made time look a little short. Sunday is usually the day I do any last minute work to finish of my plan for the week. So I was was relatively happy when on the way to a jog I tripped over the curb, skinned my knee and fingers and did some damage to my foot. With all plans out of the window it was back home to put my leg up. And paint.Despite some misgivings I have achieved my plan and surpassed my expectations. The New, New Cruelty is happy. I have tinkered about with some terrain and got along way through the prepping process for a load of figures. Not a bad week.Some of the figures this week have been a bit entertaining to paint. The Rebels and the Star Saga scientists suffer from some flatness of detail. Nothing wrong with this but it is difficult to make them shine. The three Malifaux figures were good fun to paint. Lots of nice d
Another week of working hard looks like it is in the offing. Already I am getting static from all quarters and I need to find even more paperwork. Still, enough griping as I also have some painting to do.So another mixed bag this week. Last year I was all about getting blocks of stuff done. This ended with big queues and feeling just a little demotivated. At the moment, this really is working for me. So four more Mantic Star Saga figures are on the table. I did a little bit on these last week. There is one Artizan Designs cowboy which has been hanging around as well. the biggest chunk will be the Star Wars Legion Rebels. These have been staring at me for a few weeks now so probably time to crack on with them. Lastly there are three Malifaux figures. I plan to spend some extra time on these and get them as perfect as I can. It's about time I did something with them. They cost enough when I got them and they have been gathering dust for ages. Maybe it will push me into doing something practical with them.
Hey! I would like to show you a group dedicated to the Malifaux system. Thirteen models, including quite a big monster The climate of Malifaux can be loved or hated. I’m somewhere in the middle. Assembling process is a nightmare and without it I would find the whole process of painting pleasant. Seriously – the person who designed and divided the parts into frames should go to hell, because I haven’t seen such a bad process with any other manufacturer. Most of the stands are resin, but some of them are handmade and fortunately do not stand out from the resin equivalents. Below you will find some additional photos. I hope you like the models Commission painting – email@example.com
So had first go of M3E open beta last night, it was Bayou (Wong) vs Ressers (Seamus). The good news is this is still very much Malifaux. Everything is all very familiar which is great as you all know I … Continue reading →
Another building from Wyrd Miniature new range and Malifaux game. Nicely modular, inside is stunning, best indoor I've ever seen. Really impressed with this range so far...Available in the shop
This is part of a new range from Wyrd Miniature and Malifaux game. A steampunk universe but the models are nicely generic enough tio be used in most fantasy settings I'd say. I've been very impressed with the quality, absolutely top notch plastic kit (although without any instructions :( ). The details of the walls are brilliant, insides are great (I closed this one for practical reasons). Lovely scenery available in the shop.
"A walk on the wild side..."The Paul Crockett box contains enough parts for one miniature...namely Paul Crockett. It also contains a stat card for it though there are no upgrade cards.Paul CrockettPaul Crockett is an outdoorsman of the highest calibre. he's a skilled tracker and hunter, but he has been known to slip into an almost feral state during some of his hunts. It was during one of these hunts that he slipped up and accidentally murdered a group of fellow outdoorsmen.Rather than own up to what he did, Paul fled through the Breach and into Malifaux, where he quickly began to make a name for himself as a skilled guide. It was during one of these expeditions that Paul encountered Marcus and single-handedly took down the Arcanist's pet sabertooth Cerberus. Rather than become upset at the creature's death, Marcus applauded Paul's triumph and asked to learn more of the man. The two of them quickly hit it off, each of them respecting each other's ferocity and knowledge of the outdoors.Paul Crockett - SprueThe
"You have twenty seconds to comply..."The Riotbreaker box contains enough parts for one miniature...namely the Riotbreaker. It also contains a stat card for it though there are no upgrade cards.RiotbreakerWhile most Guild constructs are regarded with a sense of ambivalence or fear by Mailifaux's citizens, the Riotbreaker is the only one that is actually hated. The constructs are only brought out to help pacify large crowds, which in Malifaux usually means Union strikes. The Union has taken advantage of this by plastering graphic pictures of Riotbreakers shooting unarmed men and women at point-blank range across the front pages of their most prominent rag sheets. This gruesome propaganda has led to the constructs being associated with the Guild's worst acts of tyranny and oppression. Charles Hoffman believes that the sullied reputation of these constructs might be repaired. He has started rotating them into other units and detachments in the hope that the people of the city will see the Riotbreakers
