2016 Hobby Year in Review

Now in its third year, let’s take a look at my hobby work over the past year.


I started the hobby year working through the Malifaux Black Friday order and getting a few things ready for Adepticon. Then the queue got real. In 2015 I felt I had been a little too stingy at Adepticon. Let’s just say I didn’t have that problem this year.

Malifaux: Vintage Pandora

I think the vintage models from Wyrd’s Guilder store may break me from the compulsive need to acquire every limited/special edition/alt model. You can collect Guilders by participating in sanctioned events, usually one for playing, and more for winning. With a total of 35 needed to get all seven currently available models, there’s no way I’ll get them all.

In the summer, I did manage to win a Henchman Hardcore tournament at Games of Berkeley. A Vintage model would be mine!

Pandora is in my faction, plus maybe the coolest of the set. So she was my clear choice.

I tried reverse shading the apparitions, though the faces looked wrong without darkened eyes and mouths. Otherwise, I kept it much the same as my original Pandora.

Malifaux: Black Blood Shamans

I talked myself into buying this box for the bonus Dark Debts model, in hopes of a translucent Huggy or something. I scored a opaque purple lady Illuminated, which wasn’t so exciting. But I also got some Black Blood Shamans (Shamen?)!

I tried to give the wings a bit more depth. As usual, my blending isn’t very smooth, but it passes the two foot test.

Now that I’ve got the Shaman, I really need to get the Nephilim box so I can start pumping out the Young. I’ve gotten a surprising amount of work out of Black Blood Pustule, however.

Malifaux: Stitched Together

I’ve considered getting Stitched since my first crew box two years ago, but now that they’re in plastic I finally got it done.

Sadly, I wasn’t feeling too creative while painting these guys up, so they’re kind of same-y. The turning one had a lamp in one hand, but it broke off and I let it be.

The rotten contents are pretty gruesome. I turned one arm up instead of down, which gives a bit more sense of life. Juicy.
