2016 Hobby Year in Review

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

Overview

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: Scion of the Void


I needed a filler for my Wyrd Gencon order to push me over the $100 bonus model level. Why not give one more option for my growing Tara crew?

I don’t quite know what’s going on with those tiny fairy wings, other than giving the model a somewhat distinctive silhouette. Unlike the Nothing Beast, the extra arms on the Scion of the Void are a little hard to see.

I haven’t had a chance to play with this model yet, but maybe it will fill the mid point gap I noticed in my last Tara game.

Malifaux: Malifaux Child

I almost always use Totems, but Karina is meh, especially without the models to be able to using the summoning upgrade. I scored a translucent Malifaux Child in a promo, but I’m not a big fan of the translucent models unless I want to do something with the effect. I traded with a friend for the regular gray plastic version and set to work.

I’ll give Wyrd credit, the design on the rolled up sleeves hides the seam pretty well. The model is otherwise a bit unexciting, and the three contact points (butt and each foot) makes positioning it on a not-completely-flat base a bit interesting.

I’ve played a game with the Child chasing Tara. I was somewhat underwhelmed, but it didn’t help that I had forgotten about the healing ability. Needing a 7 of Rams is tricky though, especially without any built in way to generate the Ram.
