Posted on April 6th, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve been lagging a little on my ToMB updates, but I’ve been getting in plenty of games. I’ve been playing against Phil’s McMourning crew and while I’ve been struggling to win I’ve had really good games. I’m still poor at … Continue reading

I’ve managed to play three games so far this month with Yan Lo and I’ve been having great fun with his crew. They are quite flexible and the support pieces bring some interesting flexibility. The Soul Porter has been great … Continue reading

Posted on February 20th, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

I played a fun game against Phil last night. He’s also taking part in ToMB and is building a McMourning crew. The nice thing about Malifaux, is that despite the modest investment of just $60 we’re playing a game that … Continue reading

Posted on February 14th, 2014 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Yan Lo is my M2E project and has been since before Christmas. Since I have his basic crew fully painted I had ruled out participating in #ToMB. For those who don’t know, Tale of Malifaux Bloggers is a structured ‘slow … Continue reading

I’ve completed the first twelve of these guys. They’ll supplement my US Paratroopers nicely, as I’ll probably use them as regular infantry support for the Sherman tank. Webbing, straps and guns done. Just metal highlights, wash and basing to go! … Continue reading

Last, and probably least, the Ashigaru. These are (again) really good sculpts that are very nice to assemble. They have some delicate joints (I managed to snap the ankles of one just after I’d painted it), but with careful handling … Continue reading

This is a huge model and he was good fun to paint. The base is from an old Rackham Confrontation model and as it is pewter it gives Izamu a good weight. I’ve used the same basic colours as the … Continue reading
