With this year’s Miss Feasance providing a Seamus and an alt Sybelle already in the stash, I was just one clearance box of Rotten Belles and a proxy Copycat Killer away from a Seamus crew box worth of models. How could I resist?
Emeline Bellerose is an alt Sybelle originally made available as a promo in August 2017 when buying enough Wyrd product from a local game store. Although the character she represents is undead, I decided to go with a cleaner, more ladylike appearance that most of my Resurrectionists.
I’m still keeping an eye out for a Puppet Wars Seamus or Evil Baby Orphanage models for a more “official” proxy. But for now I’ve got this Wild West Dorothy from Reaper’s Chronoscope line. There’s some light conversion of giving her a bigger gun, and of course hats. The topmost hat is an extra from one of the Winter Wonderland Ice Gamin, so at least there’s some Wyrd product!
Finally, the Belles. They get my standard undead treatment, and individual colors to help distinguish them on the table.
Since I’ve evidently doing Resurrectionists now, I guess I should probably do some Versatile models. Dead Rider seems like a good start.
I decided against using my undead flesh recipe on the horse, even though he appears to be a re-assembled horsey monstrosity. Instead I went with the purples and (and green for the rider) that are my primary colors for the Ressers.
To make it look more decayed, I went with bronze and verdigris on the metals. I picked up Secret Weapon’s verdigris paints a while ago, but haven’t really worked out how to use them. I haven’t achieved a particularly realistic effect, but at least it adds some visual interest.
The Forgotten Marshall is the final model needed to complete my Forgotten collection. In game I like to give him The Whisper, to either summon a model or tee up for nice attack. His summon is a bonus action, so worst case he uses it to consume the worst card The Whisper lets me see.
Even though Wyrd has announced a special fishy edition of the Rogue Necromancy, I’m still happy with my classic version.
It’s actually a somewhat difficult model, as you need to figure out what everything is, and make them different without being too loud about it. As usual, I use metals for the stitching. Even though it’s not very realistic, I like how it exaggerates the stitches without drawing too much attention to itself.
I’ll probably still get the fishy version to play with my pirate Molly. Maybe this one will get more play with McMourning.
