Malifaux


End Of The Week - ?/^&$%" (0)

Some progress has been made, never as much as I would like. Most of the current project and the background project now has a base colour and a wash although there are a few I have barely touched. Almost not detailing has been done and that is what generally takes the time. What I have done so far looks pretty good to me. If I pushed it today I would probably finish but I have friends here so that is unlikely to happen. My plan is basically to add another five figures into the mix. If I can finish them next week that would put be back on track. A bit of basing of some more elves (alfar) has been done. These are planned as black alfar for the Viking Game.Today's post is a little bit early so maybe I am being a little bit premature in saying this but I haven't finished any figures again this week. It has been a very busy week for me. Painting has played a major part in it but unfortunately the paint has been emulsion and the objects involved were walls. Someone now has a Slytherin themed bedroom. After a series

End Of The Week - Not My Best Work (15)

Earlier on I was expecting a much busier day. The time of year and the end of daylight savings time, with some lack of sleep made and with what I was expecting to be doing today made time look a little short. Sunday is usually the day I do any last minute work to finish of my plan for the week. So I was was relatively happy when on the way to a jog I tripped over the curb, skinned my knee and fingers and did some damage to my foot. With all plans out of the window it was back home to put my leg up. And paint.Despite some misgivings I have achieved my plan and surpassed my expectations. The New, New Cruelty is happy. I have tinkered about with some terrain and got along way through the prepping process for a load of figures. Not a bad week.Some of the figures this week have been a bit entertaining to paint. The Rebels and the Star Saga scientists suffer from some flatness of detail. Nothing wrong with this but it is difficult to make them shine. The three Malifaux figures were good fun to paint. Lots of nice d

Quick Start

Another week of working hard looks like it is in the offing. Already I am getting static from all quarters and I need to find even more paperwork. Still, enough griping as I also have some painting to do.So another mixed bag this week. Last year I was all about getting blocks of stuff done. This ended with big queues and feeling just a little demotivated. At the moment, this really is working for me. So four more Mantic Star Saga figures are on the table. I did a little bit on these last week. There is one Artizan Designs cowboy which has been hanging around as well. the biggest chunk will be the Star Wars Legion Rebels. These have been staring at me for a few weeks now so probably time to crack on with them. Lastly there are three Malifaux figures. I plan to spend some extra time on these and get them as perfect as I can. It's about time I did something with them. They cost enough when I got them and they have been gathering dust for ages. Maybe it will push me into doing something practical with them.

Malifaux – Jakob Lynch and Others

Hey! I would like to show you a group dedicated to the Malifaux system. Thirteen models, including quite a big monster The climate of Malifaux can be loved or hated. I’m somewhere in the middle. Assembling process is a nightmare and without it I would find the whole process of painting pleasant. Seriously – the person who designed and divided the parts into frames should go to hell, because I haven’t seen such a bad process with any other manufacturer. Most of the stands are resin, but some of them are handmade and fortunately do not stand out from the resin equivalents. Below you will find some additional photos. I hope you like the models Commission painting – minisforwar@gmail.com

Wyrdscape Solarium

This is part of a new range from Wyrd Miniature and Malifaux game. A steampunk universe but the models are nicely generic enough tio be used in most fantasy settings I'd say. I've been very impressed with the quality, absolutely top notch plastic kit (although without any instructions :( ). The details of the walls are brilliant, insides are great (I closed this one for practical reasons). Lovely scenery available in the shop.

Unboxing Malifaux - Paul Crockett

"A walk on the wild side..."The Paul Crockett box contains enough parts for one miniature...namely Paul Crockett. It also contains a stat card for it though there are no upgrade cards.Paul CrockettPaul Crockett is an outdoorsman of the highest calibre. he's a skilled tracker and hunter, but he has been known to slip into an almost feral state during some of his hunts. It was during one of these hunts that he slipped up and accidentally murdered a group of fellow outdoorsmen.Rather than own up to what he did, Paul fled through the Breach and into Malifaux, where he quickly began to make a name for himself as a skilled guide. It was during one of these expeditions that Paul encountered Marcus and single-handedly took down the Arcanist's pet sabertooth Cerberus. Rather than become upset at the creature's death, Marcus applauded Paul's triumph and asked to learn more of the man. The two of them quickly hit it off, each of them respecting each other's ferocity and knowledge of the outdoors.Paul Crockett - SprueThe

Unboxing Malifaux - Riotbreaker

"You have twenty seconds to comply..."The Riotbreaker box contains enough parts for one miniature...namely the Riotbreaker. It also contains a stat card for it though there are no upgrade cards.RiotbreakerWhile most Guild constructs are regarded with a sense of ambivalence or fear by Mailifaux's citizens, the Riotbreaker is the only one that is actually hated. The constructs are only brought out to help pacify large crowds, which in Malifaux usually means Union strikes. The Union has taken advantage of this by plastering graphic pictures of Riotbreakers shooting unarmed men and women at point-blank range across the front pages of their most prominent rag sheets. This gruesome propaganda has led to the constructs being associated with the Guild's worst acts of tyranny and oppression. Charles Hoffman believes that the sullied reputation of these constructs might be repaired. He has started rotating them into other units and detachments in the hope that the people of the city will see the Riotbreakers

Unboxing Malifaux - Obsidian Statue

"Why is that statue on fire?..."The Obsidian Statue box contains enough parts for one miniature...namely the Obsidian Statue. It also contains a stat card for them though there are no upgrade cards.Obsidian StatueThe resurgence of magic on Earth since the opening of the first Breach has led to some odd events. Perhaps one of the strangest was the sudden awakening of the Obsidian Statue that guarded a small, forgotten temple in Tibet. The statue could only move its mouth, but even this was enough to draw pilgrims from far away lands.Shenlong, upon learning of the statue, arranged for the statue to be brought to Malifaux. It was a massive undertaking, but the eventual journey through the breach completed the awakening and granted the statue full movement. Now, the Obsidian Statue serves those who gave it life. It owes them a debt that can never be repaid... and the Ten Thunders know this.Obsidian Statue - SprueThe box has one sprue in it split into two pieces (so it actually fits in the box one presumes) a

Unboxing Malifaux - Alternate Ototo

"Don't make him angry..."The Alternate Ototo box contains enough parts for one miniature...namely Alternate Ototo. It also contains a stat card for him though there are no upgrade cards.Alternate OtotoOtoto has always been strong, and combining that brute strength with proper training made Ototo one of the Oyabun’s most trusted servants. Upon coming to Malifaux, Ototo realized he could control the thunder itself.  He has since donned a mask and discarded his given name in favor of Ototo. Now, he is a faceless servant, the visage of everything the Ten Thunders are capable of.Ototo is a large melee model. His Massive Tetsubo’s attack has a 3” range, allowing him to lock down multiple enemies in combat. He also has “Hard to Kill” and the “Enrage” ability, which combo nicely together. Finally, he has “Laugh Off,” which prevents enemies from moving him. Ototo can simultaneously hold a location and pummel enemies, leaving other models free for different tasks. Who doesn’t want an enraged maniac on their side w
