Just from my reading of the background and the looks of the models I knew that I wanted them to be nice and bright (none of the darkness that you often see in Malifaux paint schemes) with bold contrasting colours. This means that they should have some of that mythical pop on the tabletop which always helps garner the odd vote in painting contests. I also know that whilst I was going to do a decent job on them, I wasn't going to end up painting them better than a decent table top standard for two reasons
- Time constraints of getting them all painted within the month just meant that I wouldn't have the time I wanted to spend on them
- They are the old metal models, whilst very nice I know that I am going to be painting a plastic Collodi crew at some point in the future so I didn't want to blow my whole wad at the first time of asking (phnar phnar)
So I present my first two teaser models. Both are still WIP but they give you a good idea where I am going with the crew and how the colours are going to work together.
