Another Day, Another Seishin

The weekend draws near. With lesser hours at work, I was able to paint up another Seishin. This is the same sculpt from the one I painted a couple of days back. But I decided to try the body of the Seishin in a slightly different color.
I'm actually liking this shade of greenish turquoise more. Its closer to Kirai's robe colors. For the green, I mixed 50:50 of Sotek Green and Warpstome Glow. Followed by highlight of Warpstone Glow mixed with Temple Guard Blue. The final highlights done using the previous mix, but just adding white.
The head of the Seishin is painted in the same manner as the last one. I used a basecoat of Doombull Brown and then a coat of Khorne Red. I added Troll Slayer Orange to the Khorne Red for layering. And for the highlights, a layer of pure Troll Slayer Orange, and then I mixed it with some Yriel Yellow.
I think this greenish turquoise color looks more like sea water than the previous one I painted. Maybe that;s why I like it more.
Double Dragons!
Above is the rest of the crew which includes my 2 remaining Seishin of different sculpt, a Lost Love and Shikome in the back. I find the Shikome model a bit disturbing and comical at the same time lol!

Hope to get more painted soon ;)

Happy New Year!

Its been a long while since I posted. My gaming group has been bitten by the MTG bug, and I with it. Been spending way too much on them cards lol! But the experience of  playing the card game after all these years really brings back fond memories.

Anyways, I'm trying to get back into painting, and decided to finish up my Malifaux crew. My wallet has activated its salvation protocols and a brief switch back to painting miniatures may work, or I may end up buying more of both haha!

 Here's a Seishin I painted today as part of Kirai's crew. I've had this model for ages. I've got 3 more to go.
I like the oriental dragon gaces and the spirit like water swirly thing the sculpt has going on.
Back view of the Seishin. I'm trying to paint them up in Kirai's original color scheme of orange and turquoise.
This one's a bit blurry, but I'm posting it anyways cos I'm too lazy to take another pic lol!

Hope to have more stuff painted again soon for the blog. I've assembled a Shikome (finally). Those wings are fiddly. And look forward to recalling how to play this game again.

Meanwhile, I will look to recharging my mana and casting some spells ;)

Have a great week ahead all!
