Malifaux: Zoraida's Crew

I finally managed to snap a few pics of my 1st ever painted Malifaux crew that some of you guys may recognize from my earlier post/review of the crew box. I enjoyed painting them so much, I have already picked up and am half way through painting Pandora's Crew! I have also picked up the Malifaux's 1st expansion, Rising Powers, and am very eager to get my hands on some of the Neverborn minis in there... but I have digressed! On with the pics!

1st up, Zoraida herself...

I was trying something new with the flesh colors... I was hoping it would look rather splotchy, pallid, or aged. I'm a little on the fence about it, as I don't know how realistic it looks, but then again Neverborn are not actually humans!


They remind me some kind of creepy fish-like creatures, thus I looked mainly at bass fish for color ideas.

Bad Juju, Mire Golem...

This guy was a mixed bag, both easy and hard to paint. Easy in that there were not a ton of details to fuss over, yet hard to paint in that it was difficult to keep things from being to bland and to get certain parts to pop. (He was also hard to photograph)

Last up, a sneak peek at one of the guys I'll be adding to my Pandora Crew... Teddy!

I saw Teddy, I pictured a carebear from hell... so I painted him up as such! The idea for the color combo and rainbow symbol actually came from someone's avatar on one of the many gaming forums I frequent. This is just a hint at some of the creepiness to come from the Pandora Crew as she like to runs with butcherknife wielding babies and little girls with giant bloody scissors and baskets of candy!

I have read both rulebooks, and even though I have yet to play my 1st game, I'm hooked! One of the hardest parts of any mniniatures is picking the right faction, but given the themes and strategies of the Neverborn Crews I definitly think I picked a 1st faction I can definitely be happy with.

Look for more Malifaux updates, pictures, and rants in the near future...

  1. These neverborn look really cool, great work. I think the Silurids turned out particularly nice and the carebear Teddy is just awesome!
