    Default Kretcher WIP

    Hi all,

    Welcome to my new WIP thread, hopefully I will be able to inspire and get inspired by you folks here. I will be posting different projects that I am going to do here, both tabletops quality to tries for more advanced techniques and bases.

    I am currently painting Malifaux figures that I will not put too much energy into, they should be nice tabletop figures. I will also be working on some freebooter figures because the sculpts are so, so good. I will but more effort into them and will try a new set of colours to them, will be using WN Artist Acrylics for them, hopefully it will be a good result. will aim to get a higher grad then 8 for them in the voting here on cmon.

    The freebooter figures I am currently prepearing for priming and hopefully be able to start with them any day now.

    The malifaux I have had some time to paint already, pictures below of progress so far.

    Have started on 2 of the figures that I want too spend more time with, it is Bonaccia and Coscritti from freebooter range. I have used WN Artist Acrylics for the first time and it is diffrent from the "normal" colours that I normaly use such as Vallejo and Reapers paints. It is simular to oil colours when it comes out from the tube and it toke some tries to get used too them.

    For Bonaccia (the girl) I have gone for much brighter colours when I usually do, for Coscritti I have mostly started some parts of the cloak (bottom part) and trying to get a worn leather look with it.

    I really like the blue and grey pallete on the Malifaux mini's. The start on the last guys cloak is cool as well.

    Do you have to dilute the WN's a lot? I know I have to with my Liquitex paints (I also have some that do not dilute well...get rather chunky).

    Yeah I have to dilute them a lot, no chunky colours yet, I like the quality and feel of the paints, it seems easier to do the higlights for me with this colours. well time will tell how it goes.

    To be fair, the ones that have chunkies are about twenty years old. I will have to try the WNs since they are smaller tubes than Liquitex and I like what you are achieving with them.

    I am using a tube set with 12 tubes of 20ml I didnt want to buy to big tubes since we are not painting such big areas, and it was what was available at the hobbystore. I guess there is a lot of other people here with better knowledge on which brands that are ok of the artist acrylic ones, but i believe Liquitex are a good brand.
