As Wyrd has done for the last few years, Black Friday brought a themed support piece for Gencon’s Nightmare crew. In this case, an alt Rogue Necromancy to go with Brine and Bones pirate Molly.
To give some texture, I used an airbrush stencil on the arms. This is one of my more successful attempts, as it’s actually still visible on the finished model, unlike Lord Chompy Bits.
I wish I had known this model would be coming before I bought and painted the regular Rogue Necromany, but maybe that one will fit better with other crews. Especially if I go all in on McMourning sometime.
While I’ve mostly focused on Wyrd’s plastic limited edition models, I couldn’t help but track down a Miss Pack once I started playing as Resurrectionists.
As a metal model, Miss Pack comes attached to a standard tab for a slotted base. Since my Resurrectionists are in resin bases, I trimmed it down. But the feet are a small target to drill a pin into. Instead, I left a bit of of the tab and drilled a matching hole, filling the gap with green stuff. It makes for a much more durable connection than just gluing the feet would have made.
I’ve been playing Resurrectionists for a while now, and what master of the undead would be complete without a swarm of unthinking zombies? Not me, anymore, anyways.
The paint scheme here is pretty simple, as befits their cheap minion status. I did go for some dripping red blood on some of the wounds. I’m not quite sure the mechanics of a bloodless gray-green flesh that somehow still holds fresh, bright red, blood. But hey, it looks pretty good, so let’s not think about it too much.
With this year’s Miss Feasance providing a Seamus and an alt Sybelle already in the stash, I was just one clearance box of Rotten Belles and a proxy Copycat Killer away from a Seamus crew box worth of models. How could I resist?
Emeline Bellerose is an alt Sybelle originally made available as a promo in August 2017 when buying enough Wyrd product from a local game store. Although the character she represents is undead, I decided to go with a cleaner, more ladylike appearance that most of my Resurrectionists.
I’m still keeping an eye out for a Puppet Wars Seamus or Evil Baby Orphanage models for a more “official” proxy. But for now I’ve got this Wild West Dorothy from Reaper’s Chronoscope line. There’s some light conversion of giving her a bigger gun, and of course hats. The topmost hat is an extra from one of the Winter Wonderland Ice Gamin, so at least there’s some Wyrd product!
Finally, the Belles. They get my standard undead treatment, and individual colors to help distinguish them on the table.
