Terrain: Barrel and Crate Clusters

I continue to slowly put together a terrain collection. You really can never have enough scatter terrain. These pieces are from Crooked Dice, who makes a lovely collection of miniatures and terrain.

These crates would fit into just about any setting. Fantasy, modern, post-apoc, pulp, you name it.

The barrels as painted are more of a post-apoc, though they’d probably fit into a modern setting well enough, if it’s for a ramshackle location. The weathering is a bit haphazard, but that’s what makes it fun.

Malifaux: Carrion Fate (Carrion Effigy and Carrion Emissary)

This marks the first time I’m painting the Emissary and Effigy at the same time. Since in third edition, the Effigy can grow into the Emissary, it seemed to make sense to paint them with similar colors.

Carrion Effigy

I tried a splatter effect to dirty up these models — Resurrectionists are supposed to be dirty. It works okay on the Emissary, but the scale doesn’t feel right on the Effigy.

Carrion Emissary

As much as I like the Carrion Emissary as a model, I just don’t like it as a game piece. It’s too bit to easily transport. At least the wings are high above the base, so smaller models can fit under it.

Resurrectionists: The Returned (Lampads and Restless Spirit)

The Draugr can’t be all alone. He needs some Revenant friends.

Lampad (arms down)

The lampads are a pretty annoying kit. Lots of flame bits, which can be very hard to see how they line up.

Lampad (arms out)

I painted it simply, with ash grey skin and GW Hexwraith Flame for the flames. The translucent green makes for easy blends for some quick and dirty OSL.

Lampad (arm up)

The Restless Spirit got the same treatment.
