  1. Anyone have thoughts about (or are already using some) house rules for the effigies in PWU? ...and the Mysterious Effigy seems like such an easy, logical conversion to a puppet Widow Weaver. Just add a parasol....

    Updated Stat Cards.

    I'm with you, Lucky! - I'd love to see life get breathed back into PW and some tactics/strategies would be great. It's a shame someone hasn't spearheaded a project like PullMyFinger for Puppet Wars.

    WTB PW Unstitched Ronin

    ....So, I ended up buying a 2nd copy of the game instead.... Plenty of puppets now!

    WTB PW Unstitched Ronin

    I'm missing ONE RONIN from my Puppet Wars Unstitched game! If anyone has a ronin or partial-PW set they want to sell, PLEASE let me know.
  5. If anyone's interested, I'm selling off my Collodi warband, led by (I believe) the first Collodi conversion ever done giving him longer fingers. Included are 2 Stitched Togethers, 4 Marionettes and 7 Wicked Dolls (i.e. a selection Puppet Wars miniatures on Malifaux bases): http://www.ebay.com/itm/321724488721?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_sacat%3D0%26_nkw%3D321724488721%26_rdc%3D1 Also, my Nightmare Teddy and Regular Teddy conversions. Nightmare is holding 2 Soul Stones on a chain and the other Teddy has his head replaced by the alternate "Nightmare" head. Object-source lighting on both of these minis: http://www.ebay.com/itm/321724491667?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%257CR40%257CR40%26_sacat%3D0%26_nkw%3D321724491667%26_rdc%3D1

    Alternate-head Teddy

    Cutting the original at shoulder level leaves the bottom half of the mouth on the mini's chest. After attaching the NM head I had to do a bit of green stuff work on the front and a little on the back. I actually made a green stuff mold of the Teddy's fur to patch in under his chin, but had to do some real sculpting at the seam. I definitely like my sculpting better than the stuff from the mold - I should've done it all that way. Overall wasn't terribly difficult (broke one jeweler's saw blade, but was probably being a bit careless). Yours was the one I saw that inspired me, Viruk - thanks for the idea!

    Was Unstitched released today?

    Got the same. Can't wait!

    Alternate-head Teddy

    I used the extra head that came with the NM Teddy and put it on the normal one I hadn't painted yet.

    Was Unstitched released today?

    Thanks for the replies.
  10. I thought 5/31 was the release date, but the Puppet Wars section of the Wyrd store is barren now and I haven't heard anything from the site (Miniature Market) I pre-ordered it from....

    Nightmare Teddy

    I finally got around to painting up my Nightmare Teddy. I thought he was done until I realized that when I matte-coated the base I did it too thick and all the stones turned to a grey mess. So, I washed them black and will repaint them tomorrow, but I figured I'd go ahead and post him. I did a slight conversion on him - I wanted him to be carrying a couple of large soulstones on a chain. I attempted some object source lighting on the eyes, stones and the street lamp behind him. Scultped the cobblestone base similar to what I did with my Collodi (http://www.wyrd-games.net/showthread.php?24992-Collodi-WIP) and Wicked Dolls (http://www.wyrd-games.net/showthread.php?25570-quot-Puppet-Wars-quot-Wicked-Dolls-for-Collodi) - I plan on him joining their crew along with another Teddy I'm converting (putting the alternate NM Teddy head on a regular Teddy) either with the Weaver Widow or without her in 2.0 if Collodi's hiring restrictions are eased up some as a Master. Anyway:
  12. Indulging in a little threadomancy (I left all things Malifaux for a bit) to say I like the string idea. I'm a Lovecraft fan, so I REALLY like the "King in Yellow" theme. Glad my Collodi "Long-fingers" inspired you. http://www.wyrd-games.net/showthread.php?24992-Collodi-WIP
  13. Has anyone done an Arcane Effigy conversion yet? I'm interested in what other people's thoughts were for it before I jump into my own. Please feel free to post some pics or ideas. I just put an order in for an Electrical Creation and a Gremlin Taxidermist that I plan to use as the basis for mine, along with various tomes, scrolls and thin banner strips that I have left over from my old Scribes of Tzeentch conversion. There's some necron parts in my bitz bins I can use for the mechanical-looking arms. Hey, maybe I'll actually have a use now for Collodi's old stubby fingers! I plan to make a smaller tome out of plasticard for his face. Once I get the mini's delivered I'll throw up a WIP post.
