The Moldorf Expedition is the other new faction set from the latest Relicblade Kickstarter. As a new game mechanic, the Moldorfs are all neutral, meaning they can be hired into both Advocate and Adversary crews.
I’d been painting a lot of greens and reds, so decided to make this set focus on blues.
The Illusory Horror featured airbrushed blends and some of the more delicately painted eyes in recent memory. Black teeth contribute to the nightmarish qualities.
I mixed up blue metallics for most of the armor, otherwise there wouldn’t be enough surface for my blue theme. Blue steel is cool, right?
The Shadowfoot continues with my recent red hairobsession. He’s stocky but I still believe that he’s light on his feet. Plus he carries at least three daggers.
The mounted Battlesmith was one of the models that sold me on Relicblade. Well, really it was his ibex. It was time he walked on his own two legs.
Characters in Relicblade can’t be dismounted, but I painted him to match his mounted brethren anyways. The kit comes with an alternate head that seems to match the Woggie Woggelbuck Legends character, but I like the helmet version better.
The Wilderkin are the final faction pack for the Advocates in Relicblade.
The Stonekin is my favorite model out of the pack. His stony skin was shaded first with an airbrush, then washed and edge highlighted. In game he’s a tough and strong, but hungry for dice.
The Geomancer comes with two summable stones, although there’s no in-game restriction on the number. I like the less-common stone theme for the magic user.
I always have trouble painting animals. Sometimes there’s enough texture on the model that I can cheat with a drybrush. The shadowfox is not such a beast.
I picked up the Battlesmith on Ibex as part of my original Relicblade purchase at Adepticon last year. The rules let you mix and match mounts and riders, so long as the size matches. So I drilled into both to insert magnets and make them swappable. I started with 1/16″, but that wasn’t strong enough. I had to drill out the magnets themselves (not recommended) to make room for 1/8″.
I guess I’ve started Resurrectionists now, so I should probably expand the collection. The nice thing about the M3E hiring rules is that it makes it real easy to figure out what else the game thinks you should buy. Transmortis it is.
I continued with the green and purple vibe of the Albus crew box. These guys especially need splatter so they aren’t too clean.
I dig the pose on this model, but his mechanical arms are a real pain. He doesn’t quite fit in the standard KR foam slot, and the claws are pretty thin. I think i’ve reglued one of his claws at least three times. Eventually I’ll give up.
I’ve often tried to do irritated flesh. Mr Stilts here is one of the few successes.
