From Zero to Hero: Daydreams - Malifaux Neverborn Minions

Hey guys,

today I wanted to show you a simple way to paint the Neverborn Daydreams. I opted for an easy RGB color scheme, as that would really make them pop.

I started out priming them with Vallejo Polyurethane Grey Primer, as that would give the colors more vibrancy as when I would've used black primer.

I laid down the basecoats with my Infinity 2 in 1 CRPlus airbrush, using VGC Imperial Blue, VMA Red and VMA Olive Green

I highlighted the figures with VGC Ice Blue, VGC Orange Fire and VGC Sick Green.

For a nice contrast on the dunce cap, I masked of the figure and laid down a coat of VMA White, followed by two coats of VGC Sun Yellow.

The mouths were painted using a 2:1 mix of VMA Black and VGC Bloody Red, thinning the mix to almost a wash consistency, so it would flow nicely into the hard to reach areas. The tongue was painted with a 1:1 mix of VGC Squid Pink and VGC Bloody Red and shaded with the same mix I used on the mouths.

For added contrast, I painted the eyes on each model to stand out from the basecoat I used. Here I used VGC Scorpion Green, VGC Hexed Lichen and VGC Bloody Red.

The highlights of the eyes where done with VMC White, VGC Squid Pink and VMC Orange.

I decided to paint the bases and base inlays separately, as I want to achieve a more sombre town on the inlays and a more vibrant tone on the bases themselves.

Finally, I painted some details on the models, and glued them to the bases.

So there you have it, a really nice and easy paintjob which really helps to make these figures pop out on the table.

Tell me what you think. :-)
