By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.
Open, locks,
Whoever knocks!

How now, you secret, black, and midnight hags!
What is’t you do?

A deed without a name.

I am pleased to present you with my entry for Round 3 of Wyrd Miniature’s Iron Painter contest. The theme for this round is “Something Wicked This Way Comes” and I have titled my entry “Secret Black and Midnight Hags.” 


When I heard the theme for this round I couldn’t help but think of MacBeth transposed into the world of Malifaux and who would make for a better trio of witches for the eponymous character to consult with than three different iterations of Malifaux’s own seer of the threads of fate, Zoraida. Here are a couple of other looks at the individual models I painted for my entry.

Since I don’t have to worry whether or not I advance to the next round, I actually feel nice and relaxed after finishing up this entry. Even though I was eliminated from contention to win this contest, I still have plenty of iron left in me and will see this thing through until the end!

Coming back from a busy family vacation (we had a great time, but taking a 4.5 year old to Disney World is anything but relaxing) and then only having a week to finish this entry meant that I accomplished very little else hobbywise. Hopefully I will be able to use the time before the next round is announced to get back to my normal posting schedule. I have a few models I would like to finish up to take with me to Gen Con, so I should have some time to finish those out prior to that trip. I also have a few new games in my collection that I would love to share with you, so check back soon for more delightful gaming!
