February 8 - Mysterious Emissary

Recommended Posts

I like it.

I certainly hope that the creepy fairies are in book four as a separate unit, because they are the best!

Okay. So after choosing Arcanists and 10 Thunders with my Gremlins instead of Neverborn, you release this. So what you are basically are saying "Get the Lynch Crew, scratch that, get every Crew." ;__; at least I'm currently safe for Guild and Resseructionists...

Very nice! I like this one the best, I think. Lucky is a close second but this is very nice. The tree-guy itself is a bit boring but not actively bad. The base however is pure gold. Really, really nice.

It does look like it needs to be painted in pieces, though, just like the Lucky Em.

I believe the "creepy fairies" are supposed to represent changelings.

That may have been the intent at some point but if the Changeling card art is anything to go by they since decided to go in a different direction. So we need a Creepy Fairy revival! Creepy Fairies for president!

You realize you are saying the art on a being whose physical form and shape is malleable doesn't match and so these can't be changelings? :huh:

Pretty certain those are changelings at birth (genesis?) the art is just one example.

Nice looking model anyway. Sort of wish the other Emissaries had fun and detailed basing inclusions like the one here.

This is actually better looking than the artwork ! And it fits on the base !

I think this is a great sculpt job. I love this.

If I wanted to be picky, I'd say I'm not fond of the moss and the worms, mainly because painted moss does not usually brings the best result and because the moss & the worms seem a bit out of place when looking at the overall smooth scuplt of the mini.

But I would be picky :p. This is my favourite Emissary preview until now, very close to the lucky emissary.

Right.  Pod people fresh out of the pod.

Amazing model.  I wish the Neverborn emissary was something different just from what I envision the emissaries to be, but this model is superb.

Aaaaaaand, it's an Emissary again. Lets all speculate what next week will bring. :P

That was my only criticism, though. I love everything about this sculpt. Easily my favourite Emissary for the moment.

Nice model. Not selling it to me though as its not for me, but it certainly captures the art well. Probably be a bitch to build and paint though! 

 

Lucky emissary still tops for me

Hodgepodge or Brutal I suppose.  I'm really curious to see how the guy in the cage turns out for Brutal.

Excellent model in my opinion.

But let's wait for a guy and the donkey. I bet he will be the last Emissary to be presented :D

My point is that they don't seem to be using the Creepy Fairy design for any standalone models. The Changeling image and the short text accompanying the card in SL implies that they'll be "imprinted" on humans. Which is shame IMO as the Creepy Fairies are much cooler than Face-Off Lad. But hey, maybe I'm wrong and the box will be one Face-Off Lad and two Creepy Fairies. If not I still hold out hope that they'll eventually be used for something.

While this one doesn't feel like as much of an "evolved form" of the effigy as the other Emissaries, this sculpt is wonderful. I also fully agree with the creepy fairy design love.
