So, I returned home to my native Merseyside during the Easter break, and some of my excellent chums convinced me to get back into Malifaux. I have not played Malifaux since the first edition of the game, so I was pleased to dust off my crew and have a go.
The game is great fun, and the introduction of premesuring makes it a lot more fun, in my humble opinion.
So, without further ado - here are some out of focus photographs of my poorly painted miniatures! Hurrah!
|Original Metal Lilith|
|Alt Metal Lilith|
Original Metal Nekima is another of those models that was just better in metal.
Everyone should own there factions rider.
My male Nephelim are all painted red like classical demons. Which seems the obvious thing to do, but you don't see it that much.
|Black Blood Shaman|
This chap is quite interesting, and you can't deeply see it in this picture. However, he lost his original knife a long while ago. He has a stabby looking Dark Elf bit instead.
Another old metal I really like. I think the new plastic dryad impersonators are a bit meh. They also come in boxes of three now, I can't see I'm ever going to need to do run three. But I do love these guys with Lilith.
The old avatar Lilith. I can use this as an emissary, or, I could If I had the cards :/ Love the old Avatar model's and I plan to try and collect them all.
Almost never use this guy, because my totem slot is often taken by:
Primordial Magic. Controversially, I have assembled him without his vomit.
And that's what I have for now. But this is Malifaux, the game were you end up collecting your entire faction, so next up is Zorida. and some Swampfriends. I used to dislike Selurids, but the new plastics are much nicer then the old metals. I'm also going to be picking up some Bayu Gators since Zorida can hire out of faction Swampfiends, and I'll pick up Spawn mother and McTavish when they come out in plastic. I already have the obligatory nurse. I'm not sure if I'll pick up a second out of faction low willpower pick. I tend not to like Merc's cos the merc tax makes them very difficult to justify unless they bring something your faction really struggles to get. If anyone has any good suggestions for Mercs worth picking up, do let me know in the comments. Also probably going to give a miss to the third out of faction swampfriend, Wild Boars, on account of how they go nuts without nearby goblins.
