Hey there!

For years, I've been searching for a game that would pick my girlfriend's interest. She didn't really care about WHFB/40k/Necromunda/Mordheim. A few months ago I showed her some pictures of Wyrd's miniatures, and she kinda "fell in love" with that steampunk/victorian/horror/western/fantasy theme. It didn't take long for us to order some starter boxes, and I managed to talk a friend into ordering one too! So, it will be a "tale of three gamers" kind of log - although I'll be the only one who'll post our progress.

So, let's see some pics!

Gremlins (my gf's crew) - assembled, based, undercoated
Image
There are close-up shots of each member, just ask if you wish to see them.

Death Marshals
(my friend's crew) - assembled, based, undercoated
Image
Bases were made by me, and there's a chance that I'll be painting them for him. He doesn't really like to paint, he's more into gaming.

Showgirls (my crew) - assembled, based, undercoated, some painted
Image
During the summer, I plan to make a display base for them, and in December, I'd like to take them to the local Games Day.

Close-ups of the painted Performer (I've painted the base since then):

Image

I'm also done with the other Performer and Cassandra, I might have some photos soon.

That's it for now.
See ya!

We'll have the first game tomorrow, I'm really interested how it turns out!

Thanks! They will all get some improvements after getting some suggestions on forums.

Had the first game today, Lady Justice vs. Colette, weeell...let's say I ALMOST won with Colette :) They will be pretty awesome when I learn how to do some nice combos with them!

I managed to finish 2 terrain pieces yesterday, a Hanging Tree and a scrap pile, pics coming tomorrow.
Also, now I've got a Coryphee Duet, their bases are also done.
AND hopefully I'll get my Mechanical Doves and the Freikorps starter + Hamelin (minion version) today or on Monday.
I'll be doing some sewer bases for the mercenaries, will have some photos of the test base too.

See ya!

The promised things:

The two terrain features aren't exactly the size that's written in the rulebook, but we'll only use them in friendly games, and the 'rule of cool' is more important there for us.

Now, on to photos:

Scrap pile:

Hanging Tree:
Image

Image

Bases for the Coryphees:
Image

And the test base for the Freikorps:
Image

That's all for now, see ya!

My new "toys" finally arrived: Mechanical Doves, a Freikorps starter, Hamelin (minion version), a Witch Hunters starter for my friend and various Rasputina things for my gf.
Meanwhile I've done the "skin" on my mannequins and coryphées, otherwise they are REALLY WIP...

Pics:

And the based Sonnia crew:

That's it for now, hope I'll be done with the Freikorps basing/undercoating soon, and I'd like to do a tutorial on painting brass in a few days.

See ya!

Yeah, they're pretty scary in the game too :)

Riiight...I've had time to do some work on the Freikorps, based all of them, undercoated and painted the bases.
Also, my gf has three of her models based&undercoated, we even had a game yesterday.
Raspy vs Von Schill, it was pretty fun, I barely managed to win (yeah, I have to find out how to use the Trapper well, he died on turn 2. But Hamelin is AWESOME with the Freikorps)

Pics!
Raspy, Silent One, Hoarcat Pride:
Image
The "thing" on Raspy's base will be painted like ice.

Freikorps:
Image
I'll be doing the "water" after they are varnished, because I'm doing that with gloss varnish.

And the small conversions I've done:
Image

Nix doesn't need a leash, he's a faithful dog. And the picture is too dark because Hamelin's lantern isn't painted ;)

That's it for now, see ya later!

I can only asnswer the last question: most places (e.g. Malestrom games, Wayland games, etc) carry Wyrd Miniatures; Malafaux.
