Malifaux Arcanists

I'm almost done a commission of Malifaux figures. Today, I have finished a box of Arcanists, featuring Colette. I have no idea what super powers she has but the olde timey hooker look was interesting to paint. Sort of a Weird Wild West theme.

These were very nice models, with minimal flash and only a few tricky joins to make. The mannequins below have fairly delicate arms that will not withstand much in the way of sheering force!

The only other names figure (at least on the box) is the centre figure below (Cassandra). The others are just "performers". I basically followed the box art for colour schemes. The nylons posed an interesting challenge! A good translucent effect is hard to achieve.

Lots of big bows on the butt (sort of a nightmare bridesmaid effect). But also an opportunity for some wet-on-wet blending.

Up next: I have the remaining pieces (a swarm of mechanic spiders and some bomb-toting piglets) drying. Then I have some more GW plastic tyranids and some guys with big guns to paint. After that I'm not sure--perhaps some more renaissance?

I use blogger.

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with
the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Sorry, I don't seem to have any power to do that. I will delete your first comment and maybe that will cancel the notifications.

This blog requires no coding skills. That said, every once and awhile, I do something like embed a map or video and having some minor skills allows me to resize it.
