Project Update: First Malifaus Mini and First attempt at OSL!

Well I have finally gotten around to painting my first Malifaux miniature, Ramos, Steampunk Sorcerer. Not only was this my first Malifaux model I have ever painted, it was also my first attempt at Origin Source Lighting (OSL). I am happy with my results but the pics are of poorer quality than I would have liked to show it off.

I followed several tutorials online and tried to best mimic the effects I saw. Like I said I am happy with the results but would love some feedback on what I have done wrong or could do better.

Over all I love the miniatures for Malifaux and I really need to get more games in as I am a huge novice, but want to play much more of this game. I plan on collecting the rest of Ramos' force the moving onto the Cult of December as those minis are pretty amazing.

As always thanks for stopping by and please feel free to comment on the OSL, I really would like to improve on this technique as it is just such a cool effect and really makes a model stand out.

Good job!

You can practice those effects in your plasma marines.

I've never used that technique in my minis but I've seen the effects in a GW's store with Killa Kans' flamers.

So I think that if you want to highlight the OSL maybe you should paint the miniature as if it were night in the city (more shade in clothes and face) and add other light sources such as streetlights.

Think about it!! A lamppost, you could merge both lights.

It's hard work but you are a good painter.

@Dark_Jober - Thanks you for the compliment. I like the idea of merging two light sources, but that is going to have to wait until I get much better at just one ;-)

I think both Ramos and the OSL look really good. I'm way too chicken to try doing OSL techniques myself so I am impressed by anyone who takes that first step. Good luck, I suspect you'll feel comfortable with it in no time!

@Papa JJ - Thank you for the compliment. I am pretty happy with how my first attempt turned out now I need to find another model to try it out on.
