Malifaux: Serena Bowman

It’s practically time for book 6 for Malifaux, so I guess I should get started on book 5.

I don’t think I sold the scars very well on her arms and torso. Or the skin tone in general. At least her dress looks nice.

I’ve played a few games with her. So far I’ve gotten so fixated on her healing and passing out Black Blood that I don’t get far enough forward to even try out the self-summoning.

Malifaux: Mysterious Effigy

I ignored the Effigies for a long time. With the Arcanists, I started playing with the Arcane Effigy. His condition removal is really good, but a cheap resilient fast model is always useful. So I’m finally giving these little puppets a look.

Model wise, it’s pretty basic. The masks seem to match those on the Insidious Madnesses,  but I didn’t want to do white here. Instead, I wanted to tie it closer to the faction, which means mostly purples.

Once again it’s time for a reflection on a year of hobby.


I started the year with a deadline looming. A Team Yankee campaign was getting started. I had just acquired enough models to fill out an army and only had about five weeks to get it table ready. I also had Dropzone Commander and Arena Rex backburnered.

Malifaux: Alt Nekima

I’ve long been dissatisfied with my Nekima model. That sculpt doesn’t have much of a menacing presence.

This one is delightfully bulky. The sword is a bit hokey, so I tried to jazz up the sword with energetic blue on the detailing. It didn’t come out quite like I had hoped.

I decided to go with natural colors for her main body: human flesh tones, brown hair/fur, brown-grays for the hooves and horns. I did blues and purples for her jacket and leggings to bring in my go-to Neverborn colors.

Original plastic Nekima was the first model I posted the Spin-o-matic for, although I’ve since reshot it. It seems fitting that Alt Nekima is the last model of this hobby year.
