So, I had a little backlog of miniatures which don't really fit in any big group. First up is the spawn mother and gupps.

That said, the sculpts you do get are nice. Each of the three individual Gupps is a characterful sculpt. I just might have liked a little more variety.
My Queeg was a very simple miniature; probably the most interesting thing to say about him is I went the rather controversial choice to give him bright blond hair. This is inspired by the actor Derren Nesbitt, who played the Gestapo Major in 'Where Eagles Dare' and did a memorable turn as No. 2 in The Prisoner. (Incidentally, I tend to think his character in Where Eagles Dare is the key touchstone for the slightly pervy Nazi General in the superlative Smith and Jones sketch.) So now you have learned about Classic TV and War Movies from before I was born, which is my pub-bore level subject par-excellence. But yes, to me, bright blond hair on a chap = sadist. Which Queeg certainly is. Though obviously Queeg himself is a reference on the part of Wyrd, to the Caine Mutiny. (Not the episode of Red Dwarf which is also referencing the Caine Mutiny, and one of the finest episodes of Red Dwarf)
Woah, enough Cult TV. Back to Malifaux.

This is normally the part of the post where I talk about the thing I am going to do next, however, I have a choice to make. Today was actually my birthday, (and I had to spend it at training day being told in almost so many words "using the internet is going to kill you"; but that's a story for another time) so I got up to this lovely sight. Thank you wife.
So, there will be three Malifaux updates in the foreseeable future. Collodi, Crossroads Seven and Titania. Just not sure in what order.
I might even try and find the time to write a post about something else.
