Malifaux: Lilith


Lilith is the last of the Monster of Monsters box set (see Barbaros, Cherub, and Terror Tots from earlier), and my second Malifaux master.

The cloak is the same Blue Liner of Barbaros’ and the Cherub’s hair.  I wanted it approximately black, but with a blue tint to keep with my Neverborn colors. I used a lot more red on this model than most of my Neverborn, largely to help it to start out from the purples of other nephilim.

I’m considering picking up the Nephilim box set to try a grow crew, but I’ve got other stuff to paint first.

I’m pretty meh on how this model turned out.  It gets the job done, but isn’t particularly exciting.

Eldar: Rangers

I bought these Eldar Rangers in the same store closing sale as a number of other models about a year ago.  They are Finecast, and were a big pain to clean up.  Most of the gems has some kind of flash on them, for example.

I painted them months ago.  Looking at them now, that pain has mostly faded and I’m really happy with how they look.

The blue cloaks are the Reaper Ultramarine Blue colors I’ve been using as the accent color for both Eldar and Dark Eldar.  As I recall, I airbrushed everything blue shades and mids, then highlighted the cloaks and painted the orange armor, helmet, gun, and details by hand.

It makes for a pretty bad camouflage, but I really like the striking difference in the color.  The armor also ties nicely into the rest of the army.

The details on the rear are probably the weakest parts, but also the parts hit hardest by the cast quality.

I’m very happy with how this unit turned out, despite how much I hated them at the time.

Malifaux: Cherub


Getting close to finishing the Mother of Monsters box.

This guy got the darker purple body from the Terror Tots, but the same hair and blue paint/purple washed wings as Barbaros.

I know it’s not terribly original, but I thought it was neat that the wings can come down to attach to the base.  I pin most Malifaux models, since the planks are made of balsa, but this one I was able to just plastic glue to the side of the base before priming.
