Avatar of Famine 1
This lovely Malifaux model is Rasputina’s Avatar, the Avatar of Famine. I have previously mentioned that in Malifaux Avatars represent the ultimate incarnation of a master’s power and that the 2nd edition ruleset relegated them to campaign only status, but not anymore! In the latest book, Shifting Loyalties, rules were released for the Emissaries of Fate and any Avatar model is a tournament legal proxy for these powerful new allies.


I just finished painting my Dawn Serpent from the Ten Thunders Faction of Malifaux and I’m floored at how it came out. I hear you say, “But why would you paint that? You play Arcanists!” To that I must say, have you seen this model? It’s such a cool model I would want to paint it even if I couldn’t use it in game, but the Dawn Serpent is a beast and Marcus can bring along beasts from any faction! That means I get to add this sweet looking dragon to Marcus’ ever expanding menagerie!

Cojo 4

I finally got around to finishing painting the last member of my Claw and Fang crew box–Cojo, the big, angry, spiky gorilla! I am really happy how he turned out and am really glad I decided to give him an icicle as a club. (more…)

Marcus 3

In an earlier post I asked you all to heap your shame and scorn upon me if I didn’t post a finished photo of one of five miniatures within one week from the aforementioned post. You can call of the hounds, for now, as Marcus is here in all his painted glory to command those hounds! (more…)


Now that the Wyrd Miniatures Frozen Moments Painting contest voting is closed , I can show you my entry as promised! I may not have won the single miniature category, but I feel like I made a very good showing (by my last count I was about 5thish place out of 27 entries) and got a lot of compliments on what I did. While the Mr. Graves titled “A Better Class of Bouncer” which did win and the others close to it were certainly in a class above my skills (there was also an amazing McMourning which was solidly leading in votes but had to pull out of the contest because he apparently misread the rules and entered something which couldn’t be entered), I feel like I made a decent showing and my painting has improved a lot even since the last contest I entered. (more…)


I recently finished up a three different Malifaux models to enter for Wyrd Miniatures Frozen Moments Painting contest single miniature category. I painted up three because I couldn’t decide between which of the three I wanted to enter and decided to see which I liked best when I was completely finished painting all of them. Here you can see the two I decided not to enter. (more…)


It has been apparently been almost exactly six months since the last time I posted anything up here. I felt like I had been doing a decent job of posting at least once a week and then *BAM!* life gets crazy busy and all of this falls by the wayside. Between work, travel, ren faire, Gen Con, and laser eye surgery the last six months have been rather packed. (more…)


I finished up this Sabertooth Cerberus from Malifaux a little over a week ago but couldn’t post it here sooner as I entered it in the Single Miniature category for Wyrd’s Summer Painting Contest. I feel like a made a good showing for painting this guy up for the contest last minute. They haven’t officially announced the results of the competition yet, so I will post an update here once the results are announced (not holding my breath as there were a lot of great looking entries). (more…)


I have finally finished off painting my first Malifaux crew: the Children of December! I fell in love with these models at Gen Con last year and finally have them painted, based, and ready to bring icy death to all those who oppose them! (more…)


I have finished up painting the Ice Golem and Ice Gamin from my Children of December crew for Malifaux. I am really happy with how they turned out and love how they look with the ice basing. Now I just need to do some detail work on Rasputina and her furry little Wendigo friend and I will have my first Malifaux crew completed! Next up for Malifaux: Marcus and his menagerie; Wyrd finally annouced the new plastic December Acolytes should be coming out soon, so I will probably snag some of those once they come out and add them into Rasputina’s icy crew.
