Malifaux: Johanna

I got hold of one of these limited edition Johanna's. So I painted it. Quite a cool little model; much cooler then plastic Johan, who looks like a weird mutant man.

Brexit, for the last time.

If I don't screw it up, this post should be published some time after the polls close, but before the referendum result can be guessed at. That's because I don't want people to say I am trying to influence the vote, or am only saying this because of the likely outcome.

I want to talk about democracy.

Malifaux: Dreamer Avatar

I said I might have something coming from the electronic bay, and here it is. The Dreamers avatar form. Now I own all four of the Neverborn avatars. It would be good if avatar forms existed for Lucy, Collodi and Lynch. However, I suppose then no one would want to use the emissary model (when it finally deigns to come out). I'm not sure what you are supposed to do if you are playing Collodi, Lucy or Lynch in a campaign game. Wyrd did say that they were going to bring out some sort of 30mm to 50mm avatar converter, one per faction. No sign of that though,

Malifaux: Lucius

Lucius is a master I have wanted to get the models for for a long time. He's always been one of the best characters in Malifaux, and in M2E I can play him without breaking my one faction vow. Splendid.

Malifaux: Jacob Lynch

Jacob Lynch, we meet again. This is actually my second Jacob Lynch crew, I picked up the crew when it first came out but never got around to painting it and eventually sold it. I was never particularly impressed with these models, some of the first plastics, along with the other 10 thunders duel faction crews. Quite flat, detail quite soft, and a fair number of gaps that need filling. However, a lot of the models are very useful. Indeed, Illuminated may well be the best minion in Malifaux.

Malifaux: McTavish.

I realise McTavish is not a master. However, he came out this month and was an immediate addition to my collection, chiefly for use with Zorida.

Malifaux: The Dreamer

More Malifaux, but not that many pictures this time, since I already have a lot of the very general models in the Never-born Faction.

The Dreamer
The Dreamer, possibly the least inspiring model in Malifaux, although, it is one of the models which has been improve by being redone in plastic.

Malifaux: Pandora

Back once again with even more painted Malifaux, hopefully some slightly less rubbish photographs as I have actually passed these through Photoshop to do such amazing things as cropping, and some automatic colour correction. Kind of shocking that it didn't actually occur to me to do this before now as I actually teach a little bit of image editing stuff. If I find the time I might go back and fix the images I uploaded earlier. Edit: I have now done this to all the previous Malifaux images.

Corruption has been in the news lately due to some comments made by our prime minister. This got me thinking about the left vs right political arguments I have participated in or observed. Often in the cause of such arguments folks end up citing one historical example or another were things went horribly wrong. The retort given is often; ‘that’s not a real example of <political system> that came about due to corruption among the folks administering the system.'

Gaming Table

The wife and I have now managed to make a habit of playing a weekly game of Malifaux on Saturday nights (Sunday this weekend since bank holiday). This is far more regular gaming when we ever managed with 40k. I think probably due to the smaller numbers of models.

This has necessitated investing in some terrain. Malifaux needs a lot of terrain. And is not particularly suited to the vast gray multi level structures that 40k tables tend to contain.

Our table now looks like this:
