The Mobile Toolkit has been in my stash for ages. I don’t quite remember why. It may have been an impulse M2E clearance buy. But now with the Nightmare Hoffman I had a good excuse to paint it up.
This is one of those models that don’t have a great way to join it to the base. Fortunately, it’s a lightweight model, so hopefully a little CA glue on the toes will be enough.
These Juggernauts (nightmare Riotbreakers) are the Black Friday followup to this year’s Gencon nightmare models.
It’s always nice when there are a few more in-theme alts to work with.
Unlike the Weeping Huntress, these 40mm models fill out their bases nicely.
Although some of their helmets are a little silly.
Like most of the recent Nightmare sets, Lord Galehault got some followups. Only in this case, the first followup came out at Gencon as well.
With titles being a thing now in Malifaux, complete with alternate sculpts, the Nightmares need it, too. In this case, he’s unhorsed, but otherwise the same character.
But he has this robot dragon for a friend.
The Nightmare set from 2022 didn’t really speak to me. But for some reason this one did.
I always feel like I’m missing something when painting realistic horses. But this one is fantastic enough that it seems okay.
The Hollow Fiends came with clear plastic flight stands, but now obvious place to mount them. These rods were originally intended just for painting, but I ended up deciding to keep them.
Look at this brawny man. He probably can’t look at you through that helmet.
Stiltzkin is this lovely silly little beast.
The Weeping Huntress is the one weak sculpt of the batch. In particular, it doesn’t really fill the 40mm base. Oh well, you can’t win ’em all.
