Ripperology - Seamus and other Ressurectionists
With the pre-release Malifaux's second edition and no game I was particularly passionate about at the moment, it was a good opportunity to practice more source lighting.
Seamus of course is the star of the show. He got a teal hat band, connecting him with his original color scheme, while I tried to keep the rest of the look pretty muted.
Being so narcissistic, I thought it would be a lot of fun for him to be posing in front of a poster of him, which was a fun little design to paint.
Having actually had some people accuse me of being a fraud because my sourcelighting was too subtle on my previous efforts, and because I felt like doing something more for tabletop play, I did a bit more over the top sourcelighting on his crew.
I'd never been a fan of the original copycat killer, so this guy did just fine. The Puppet Wars bases fit nearly perfectly in a regular 30mm base, so this guy made a fine proxy.
I painted him some time ago, for my Puppet Wars collection, some time ago, but don't intend to do OSL on all my puppet wars models, so left him unmodified.
Sybelle is, well, a weird model. She was pretty well made, early in Wyrd's life, and had more dimension than most of their original sculpts, but she's a pretty incredibly ugly model. She's got a bit more zombie to her than the newer sculpt, and I think she's basically just what she's supposed to be, but, blech, not a pleasant look.
