Railcrew Commission

Even though I have put Malifaux to the side, I was recently asked to paint a crew from the Ten Thunders.

I’ve been referencing a lot of pictures, from the building of the Transcontinential Railway.  Thousands of Chinese immigrants were used to build a vast portion of the railroad, many thousands died as well; due to harsh conditions or maltreatment.  So some will ask, why is this important to painting a model?

My approach to painting, is that each model tells a story, whether you make it up or take reference from real life; the story is what you paint in that character.  So the idea I’m (hopefully) building with this crew, is one of sorrow and a desire for revenge; Mei Feng and her Railcrew are out for justice.
