Now in its thirdyear, 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.
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.
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.
