Welcome to my blog!

More than one year ago I discovered Malifaux. After getting familiar to the game specifics and watching several great battle reports I got excited and decided to start my crew.

This is a real challenge to the new player, however after some time of searching I stopped on The Swamp Hag starter. Even from the picture on the box it is clear what the models do: Zoraida casts hexes, Bad Juju solves problems in hand-to-hand and Silurids... To be honest, nothing was clear about them, but later I found that they are fast enough, which is great for some schemes.

At last I received long-awaited parcel and started to assemble the crew.
The first in the queue were the Silurids. According to the rules these lizards are stealth creatures with ability to hide in the undergrowth thanks to their camouflage till they swiftly leap to attack.
However the poses of the models from the box do not reflect such appearance: the one runs at full height on its back legs and the other prepares for long jumping with its tongue put out.
This matter and some parts, which are quite fragile, evoked me for conversion.

I took the body of the running Silurid, both pairs of legs from the one, who prepares for jumping, and, in order to create really complex conversion, the head of the third lizard.

In order to make the tail less breakable I made it bent above the base, on which I placed some leaves and twigs and put a small plant to represent the swampy area.

The model is not finished yet and some gaps require filling prior to painting, but here is the WIP model, how it would look when assembled.

Back to my crew from January holidays.

Contents of the Swamp Hag starter do not form 50SS crew thus I started to consider additional models. Neverborn range is so wide and provides plenty of choices: Nephilims, gambling house "employees", nightmares...

However I wanted to maintain theme of my swampy crew, if such category is applicable to games in Malifaux. So I decided that Sorrows box would be one of good additions. Such ghosts may dwell in the swamps and lure travellers to the deadly mires. And their rules complement the crew as well.

On the artwork Sorrows look like scary ghosts, but the plastic counterparts are not so creepy. Thus I decided to make a conversion of one Sorrow and show the results.

I removed the tongue, added the new jaw, converted the hands (not to be fragile as well) and corrected its stoop.

At last I added the teddy bear from the Crooligans box to bring more Malifaux flavour ;)

Nice work so far KiTe!

As someone who likes to convert I can really appreciate the effort in that Silurid. Are you going to be converting up another 2 to join him?

Hope to see more soon

HD,

thanks for your response. Sorry for not answering, but I wanted to post my reply with the new finished model. Silurids are great and I want at least one more in my crew.

One of the reasons, for which I've decided to take Zoraida's starter was the model, which is not sold separately - swamp giant Bad Juju. His only purpose is to smash enemies in close combat))

The model from the sprue comes not in a very aggressive pose.

So I've decided to make him even more dinamic and brutal.

Left leg was changed, as well as both hands - the left one is ready for striking.

Thanks for your response, Viruk

Each crew of Malifaux is centered around its Master. After I've started my crew, converting each miniature, I couldn't leave Zoraida without attention :lol:

As you might remember, I've used small bear from the Crooligans box for the conversion of Sorrow. The spare parts of the girl, who was holding that bear, as well as parts from the boy with knives helped me to convert Zoraida.

From the skirt of the girl and legs of the boy with knives I've made the lower part, boy's hands were placed instead of hands from the starter with addition of Zoraida's palm, on which I've placed the voodoo doll. It was made from the several dolls, available on the sprue - legs, hands, body and head were glued together from separate parts :huh:

The knife of Crooligan guy was placed in Zoraida's right hand, with hair of Crooligan girl - on Zoraida's head.

Still need to fill some gaps.
