I ignored the Effigies for a long time. With the Arcanists, I started playing with the Arcane Effigy. His condition removal is really good, but a cheap resilient fast model is always useful. So I’m finally giving these little puppets a look.
Model wise, it’s pretty basic. The masks seem to match those on the Insidious Madnesses, but I didn’t want to do white here. Instead, I wanted to tie it closer to the faction, which means mostly purples.
Well, I’ve got Mr Cooper and his Showgirls. I’ve got Rasputina an her Frozen Heart. I guess I should get the models that have both.
I’m still not totally sure how I feel about the icy slopes the models come on. But I am pretty happy with the blue effect on them. It ties nicely into the magic blue snow of the Snow Gamin and Rasputina’s magic swirl.
The ribbons and capes give a nice hint of movement, but I’m fairy certain the ribbons are not going to last long before they break.
Clearly Myranda needs some beast friends to shift into. Might as well start with one from the same box.
I decided to use the same gray for the hair along the Cerberus’s back as Myranda’s, to suggest the transformation. It also serves to tie the model to the stone it’s perched on. There’s also a bit of snow, almost too subtle, to tie to the wintery side of the Arcanists.
