Malifaux: Necropunks

I guess I’ve started Resurrectionists now, so I should probably expand the collection. The nice thing about the M3E hiring rules is that it makes it real easy to figure out what else the game thinks you should buy. Transmortis it is.

Necropunk (legs)

I continued with the green and purple vibe of the Albus crew box. These guys especially need splatter so they aren’t too clean.

Necropunk (squatting)

I dig the pose on this model, but his mechanical arms are a real pain. He doesn’t quite fit in the standard KR foam slot, and the claws are pretty thin. I think i’ve reglued one of his claws at least three times. Eventually I’ll give up.

Necropunk (stilts)

I’ve often tried to do irritated flesh. Mr Stilts here is one of the few successes.

Malifaux: Albus von Schtook Crew

At Adepticon this year Wyrd had a small number prerelease third edition kits for Malifaux. Some were repackages of old kits with new cards, but a few were all new models. I couldn’t help myself, and even though I don’t (until now) play Resurrectionists I picked up the von Schtook box.

Albus von Schtook

I went with purples and green as the primary colors. I also decided that since von Schtook seems like a slash-and-stitch kind of guy, his crew should be speckled with blood of grime.

Research Assistant

His (now free to hire, in M3E) totem is the unnamed Research Assistant. He seems appropriately scrawny.

Anne Lovelace

Anna Lovelace already existed, but has been reimagined as the von Schtook henchman. The new pose is fairly static, and doesn’t really fill the 40mm base. Model-wise, she’s the weak link in this box.

The minions are Undergraduates. I like the three distinct poses, but I’m not quite sure about the widely varying weapon appearance. I wish all three had the cylinders on their backs, so there would be a common theme between them.

Malifaux: Beast Within and Vogel

I’m very slowly growing my Arcanists collection, although it may be a bit haphazard. Today’s contribution is Vogel and the Beast Within.

One of the interesting aspects of these models is that they represent different manifestations of the same character. In theory, it’s the same outfit between the two.

The Beast Within

Like all too many large Malifaux models, there was a nasty seam both around the head and around the hinge of the jaw. I managed to clean up the worst of it, but there are still some pretty visible seams in the cuffs, shoulders, and wrists.

I have vague ideals of playing both Marcus and Lucius, both of which have some interesting possibilities using Vogel/the Beast. With the M3E annoucement, it’s hard to know what is still a good idea. On the plus side, I’ve got plenty of other hobby projects to keep me busy.
