A nice easy little unit to paint. The dark red or maroon trousers and jacket were achieved with Citadel paint Red Gore,then the usual wash of Windsor and newton nut brown ink.
And there we have it, all ready for the December game. Now, after doing alot of a particular miniature, that is 2 regiments of Pike and Shot in succession now! I like to cleanse the pallet with something completely different. And Malifaux http://wyrd-games.net/shop/home.php certainly is that. It also has the advantage of small "units" as it is a skirmish game,so can be pushed out quickly, ready for the next major unit from a main line army. I already have 3 crews for Malifaux, but as fans of the game will know the second book has recently been released and with it a plethora of new minis.
Whilst at Colours the Bayou Gremlins took my fancy. I had already painted the Warpig, and the new Ophelia box set looked fun. The fluff behind it is also rather amusing. Not that I tend to be bothered by fluff much, but these little guys are enamored of the Ortega crew, apparently, so try to emulate them.
Now if you are not familiar with Superglue Accelerator, a word of warning. It is basically a catalyst, that causes the cyanoacrelate to harden almost instantly. This reaction makes ALLOT of heat. so if you have any superglue on exposed skin, and you then get accelerator on that spot, it will hurt! so carefull.
