Malifaux: October Stuff

So the 'October' Malifaux releases arrived and I have managed to get them assembled and painted. So a bit of a thematic mixed bag today.

Malifaux: Von Shill

Finally got around to painting up my Freikorps stuff. In the same way as my Viktrorias I mainly have these because most of them are usable as mercenaries; however I painted up Von Schill and the steam trunk just in case I one day want to declare the outcast faction. I should say, with the exception of Hannah and the steam trunk I batch painted these guys like you would with a 40k squad and it was... tedious as all heck. I'm not sure how I am ever going to get around to painting my 40/30k again. But I'm sure I eventually will.

Malifaux: Guild Mercenaries

I realise I said in the last post that the next thing I was going to paint was the Von Shill crew. However, I have been quite busy over half-term marking coursework and writing an essay for my M.Ed, so I wanted to do something fun in the evenings and I just could not face batch painting all that black and gray.

So in my giant ebay job lot, I also got the models from the starter set, now I have had a starter set previously but I sold the Guild models too a friend. Now I have decided to collect all the potential mercenary hires I thought I would paint up the four guild mercs.

Malifaux: Viktorias

Viktoria of Ash
Viktoria of Blood
 I don't quite collect a second faction now; but I did pick up a lot of second hand mercenaries from ebay. I've painted up the Viktorias stuff. Even though I don't intend to play Outcasts, I painted up the non mercenary models. I used to have an Escher gang for Necromunda, and painting up these ladies scratched a lot of the same itch. I think these plastic Viktorias are lovely sculpts. I find it interesting that the Vik of Blood, the copy, is far more naked then the human Vik of ash. It's an interesting idea that if it not the body you owned you'd be more comfortable weaponizing it as a distraction.

Besieged on both sides

Other symbols of righteous anger are available

Quite a personal blog post this in many respects; but I hope to illustrate a wider political point and not cross the road into self indulgent whinging.

Malifaux: Changelings

Very short blog post today. I painted the changelings which were the only thing to come out in September's Malifaux release which interest me.

Malifaux: Collodi

I finally got around to painting up all the stuff for the final Neverborn master, Collodi. I've been painting these bits and pieces over a long while and there are quite a few of them. They are more cohesive then some of my other bits and bobs, I guess because they are supposed to be a dance troupe.
