Malifaux: Vintage McMourning

I got Vintage McMourning as a random promo a while ago. Now that I’m apparently doing Resurrectionists, it seemed appropriate to paint it up.

Vintage McMourning

I’ve taken McMourning as a second master in one game. He pretty much single-handedly won me the game. His ability to ignore a bunch of defensive abilities makes him super dangerous. Unfortunately, his discard-to-move-4″ ability doesn’t synergize with the Fading abilities that Molly brings to the table.

Malifaux: Pirate Archie

The Nightmare Brine and Bones box emphatically includes a hat for Archie. It even includes an alt stat card with the hat and the name Arrrchie. Who am I to argue?


My friend Sean was kind enough to provide a cutlass from Wyrd’s old Driftwood Docks accessory pack, to complete the pirate theme.

I tried to use a couple skin tone variants to drive home the idea that the limbs had been stitched together, though it doesn’t come through much on the end product.

Malifaux: Brine and Bones (Nightmare Molly)

I had bought the von Schtook box at Adepticon on a whim, despite never playing Resurrectionists before. When Wyrd announced these undead pirates would be this year’s Nightmare alternate crew box, I knew I had my new faction.

Mary “Blacktongue” Bonnet (Nightmare Molly)

Blacktongue / Molly comes complete with a skeletal parrot for her hat. Blacktongue is painted similarly to her minion Skellywags, but her bright red cloak sets her apart on the table.

Wayward Mariner (Nightmare Necrotic Machine)

The diving theme for Molly’s totem is what really sold me on the box. I don’t think I really sold it as old and decayed, but he’s still got the cool diving helmet so I’m happy.

Nani and the Voice (Nightmare Philip and the Nanny)

Nani and the Voice is a bit disappointing as a model. Much like the new Anna Lovelace, this model doesn’t justify the large base size. While painting she was tacked temporarily on a 30mm and it looked just fine.

Amazingly, I made it all the way to my first game before I realized the pun behind the Skellywag name. Malifaux undead don’t have enough pure skeletons, so I’m happy to have these three in my case.
