Malifaux Joss

Continuing my journey into Malifaux I spent a heap of time painting a bunch of bases using the same colours as the Arachnids, and now it’s on to actually painting some figures. I’ve started with Joss as he’s got a nice large area of easy to access muscular skin and I wanted to try a couple of skin techniques I’ve had bouncing around in my head for a while.
Joss-1
Joss-2
Joss-3
Joss-4
The head, torso and arm was done as follows. I used a couple of techniques from Matthieu Roueche’s Miniature Mentor video. The first is the order of applying shadow and highlights. The order they are below is the order I applied them in. Switching between highlights and shadows makes it easier to hide errors and helps to get a smoother result. The other technique is using highly watered down paints. The base coat was diluted with 3 parts water and the shadows/highlights with anywhere from 3 to 5 parts water. This means you need a heap of coats, but it gives a really smooth result.
