Malifaux: Ross Jebson (alt Slop Hauler)

Ross Jebson was one of this year’s Easter models from Wyrd. He’s an alt Slop Hauler, and may remind you of somebody. I’ve been watching Bob Ross videos with the kids, so I’m primed and ready to go.

Now that the metal barrier has been breached, we’ll see what other limited models make their way across my workbench.
