Mortarion's Malifaux models

Recommended Posts

It has been a while since I posted anything here. Most of my hobby time for the past month or so has gone into building a custom cake decoration for a friend's wedding. But now that is done, and I can get back to Malifaux. So here are some Wardens:

Most robots I've seen for Malifaux are painted in metal colour, but I think that can end up looking quite boring. So I wanted them in the same blue colour I use for my other guardsman models. I tried out some gold on the trimming to get that oldschool police feeling. At first I was worried it might be too much, but when looking at the finished models I'm quite happy with the result. That is about how I would picture a late nineteenth century steampunk police robot!

New models! This time two hunters.

I wanted to use the same colour scheme as on my Wardens, but was a bit sceptical at first. Hunters are used to stalk their prey and blue with shining gold detailjs might not be the stealthiest colour sceme possible. But then I figured that the Guild must have some Hunters for use in urban environment, where stealth is less about blending into the background and where it might even be point of being visible, since it shows potential lawbreakers what awaits them if they try anything. 

And I like the result.

The second Hunter. I wanted to tell a story with the base. As you might see there is blood on its tail. And it is following a trail of blood drops. I figured it managed to wound its prey in combat, but the prey somehow managed to escape. And now it stalks the escapee.

Some new models done. From constructed cats to living dogs. Guild hounds!

I went for a quite realistic looking colour scheme, with the exception of the eyes, which I painted yellow. Realistic dog eyes looks quite boring in this scale and the background talks about mutations amongst the hounds, so...

So, it's been a while since I posted anything here. It has been a combination of real life stuff that needed to be done, painting things for other games and me having the flu. But now I am back!

Two new models completed - Exorcists!

I really like these models. They might not be super hot in terms of rules, but they look so cool. Originaly I planned to paint magical/holy symbols on their coats, but in the end I decided against it as they looked rather cool in just black leather coats.

Another model done - a peacekeeper.

I actually don't like this model. Its design is really different from the other Guild constructs, it is asymetrical to the point where it looks like some kind of one-off creation built from random parts and it does not fit on the base. But it was OK to paint and I think it will be fun to play with.

And here we can see how the honest citizens of Malifaux were saved from yet another attempt by Arcanist goons to spread misinformation and hatred.

Another model done. A doppelganger!

While this may not actually be a Guild model, Lucius insists that she is. And she does look just like that important Guild officer. Oh, well... I guess she is a Guild model.

I went for a fairly standard colour scheme, but made the towel blue to fit in better with the rest of the army.

Lots of new models! First of is Sonnia Criid. She's been standing half finished on my painting table for a while, but now I have finally finished her.

I like the design/sculpt of this model. With the painting i used the same colour scheme as my Witchling handler. I think that the red jacket adds a little bit more life to the model than a brown leather one.

And her buddy Hopkins! The basic design of the model is really cool but the large spirit trap thing that should be hanging between his legs just looks weird. He would hardly be able to move with it hanging there. Fortunately, it is easy to remove. The painting was again the same as Sonnia and the Handler. They are all witch hunters after all...

And finally Ryle. I wanted to paint his claw like I have painted my constructs, but in retrospect I probably should have painted his trousers some other colour. He could use some more colour. But he still looks OK I think.

Some new models done!

First out is The Purifying flame. This one has actually been painted for a while. I've just not gotten around to taking photos of it.

And then the Governor's proxy. I did a small conversion with his hand. The feather pen is supposed to balance on the tip but it is one of those designs that may work in a computer, but will break immediately in real life. On the painted picture it seems to float above his hand, held up by some kind of magical energy. So I decided to add some flames around the pen. I think it got quite close to the idea behind the model while still being a model that doesn't break as soon as someone looks at it.

And finally a Guardian. It will be interesting to try one out after the errata buff. I removed the strange symbol from the shield and sculpted a Guild ram skull instead.

Some new models done. First out, two Death marshal recruiters.

The design of this model is so cool.

This one I don't like as much. I would have liked to have a flaming skull option for it. I tried painting the skin very pale and almost dried up, but alas, it is no skull...

Some Clockwork traps. The pile of sand that is part of the models' bases provided some challenge to incorporate into my cobblestone basing, but I think it worked out OK.

And finally two flame wall markers for Sonnia. One day I would like to actually sculpt some flame pillars, but until then, this will do.

It's been a long time since I posted anything, but now I have some new models done.

Francisco Ortega - el mariscal de muerto. I wanted Francisco to fit in better with my other crews, so I made him into a Death marshal. I figured the sombrero would make it pretty clear who he actually was even with the new face. I am pretty pleased with how he turned out.

Austringers. The models are cool in theory, but they were not designed to be used in reality. The string on the standing one broke before I had even started putting it together. And I did not even try to glue the legs on the falcon onto the arm, as they would have broken during painting or the first game. So I converted it and glued the tail feathers to the arm instead and built new legs.

When painting them I thought about using more "feral" colours, but in the end I used the same colour scheme as my riflemen to mark them as guards.

And finally changelings. I absolutely love the design of these models. They are so creepy! Wyrd have really managed to do "horror" models without resorting to just big monsters.

And finally I have some new models ready. First up, Field reporters:

Cool models. The fact that they are not really part of the Guild forces meant I could experiment a bit more with different colours, but I still kept it fairly close to the rest of my models so that it would look more coherent on the tabletop.

And Phiona Gage:

With this one I wanted really down-to-Earth colours. A plain workers outfit.

Yeah, I'm used to painting GW faces, so the more correctly scaled Wyrd faces are tough. However, in my defense I think they do look better in reality. Magnifying their faces to about three times as large as in reality doesn't really do them any favours. :)

But faces are something I need to work on.

It's been a while since I posted anything. This is pratly because I have been bad at taking pictures of my stuff. We have played a growth league and I have started a new crew - Collodi!

The Puppet master himself.

His friend, which is a cool model but I think is a little too frail in comparison to it's cost in game.

Marionettes. Two more still waiting to be painted.

Some new Guild models done. First up, the Jury!

Really cool sculpt. The colour scheme is basically the same as form my other models of high rank, so not much to say about the painting.

And a Thalarian queller.

6crECax.jpg
I know that the swirling thing is not supposed to be flames, and I actually think that it was sculpted specifically not to look like flames. But it just fit the rest of my models better if I painted it like flames...

I also painted two Supression markers. Glowing magic circles which drains energy from around them.

What do you think?

Really nice work - I particularly like the stitched togethers plus those suppression bases for the Thalarian Queller are knockout
