Justice for all

When the title of this post is used in relation to Malifaux's Lady Justice, it almost makes her sound kind of slutty. Then again, I like easy girls......

Enough about me. I have had a lot going on this last couple weeks and I am back with a new update. So 2 trips down (NY and Atlanta) with 2 trips ahead of me to go. I had a great time down in Atlanta meeting up with Teek and James. I was able to rock out with 1500 points of Eldar vs Jame's Deathwing. Ouch, I really do not like fighting terminators with Eldar, Eldar just do not have the punching power to take on a whole load of Termie's.

Regardless, the games was great. James and I played one of the Space Marine missions from the battle missions book, and the game ended in a tie do to some last round heroics by the Banshee squad. Belial and his group of assault termies were dropped by a flurry of power weapon attacks combined with Doom. It was a great game and I had a wonderful time meeting up with some Atlanta locals.

Now I have nothing currently planned for Seattle, but plan to swing by the GW Battle Bunker along with my 1500 points of Eldar. I do have some plans for NH however. After speaking with Russ Wakelin of D6G fame, I plan to stop by the new Manchester Myriad Games location for some Malifaux on Tuesday night (July 27). Toward that end, I have been on a mission to get my Malifaux crews painted and based. Upon receiving all my currently ordered MAS bases, I have begun to make some headway.

And that brings us to the next 6 painting points I knocked out last weekend. I have to admit I think Lady Justice is moving to my favorite new model. I decided to go with a Patent Leather Black corset and gloves for her, along with some lighter wood stocks for the pistols:

I also knocked out 3 Death Marshals ( I have another on order) and the Judge to complete the Guild starter box. I have more work to do on the Death Marshal faces, but they make a nice table top quality for now.
If you look, you can see I added in some mud-splatter on the bottom of the Judges coat. This nicely offset the cream color of the coat I think.

I also knocked out one more model for my wife's Neverborn crew. I have not focused on them as I am not sure she is going to play while we are on vacation, but this model just called to me. See, my wife is a huge Disney fan, and when she saw Teddy she asked if he could look like Sully from Monsters Inc. I thought a demonic Sully would be amusing, so I agreed and painted him up.

That's it for this post. I also knocked out my Rasputina crew over the weekend, along with a proxy model for my executioner. I will get more posts up tomorrow, including some shots of the crews together.

Email me if your in the Seattle WA or Manchester NH areas and are looking for a 40K or Malifaux game.


  1. Actually, the first thing that came to my mind and my friends mind when we saw Teddy was Demonic Care Bear. I hate to say it, but you are getting me interested in Malifaux.

  2. LOL, the heart does give Teddy a Demonic Care Bear look. I am sure she would be happy with thoughts on either side.

    I can only recommend the game right now. While I have not played as much as I would like (4 games in including learning games), each game has been good! Now that I have painted crews, the trick is getting more games in.

  3. Ok, how did you get the paint to go on smooth? I've tried twice now and keep getting a paint bubble on the left boob. All I have to do is get Lady J painted and I'll have my Seamus box and my Death Marshall box done and can start trying to get some games in. Any help on this? I am thinning paints so I don't think that is the issue.

  4. I'm always up for a game Bill!

  5. Took me a bit to find it, but check out the Teddy here

  6. I will be taking you up on that Josh.. as soon as my travel ramps back down. The bad side is that my travel does not ramp back down until the end of August... 3 more weeks to go.
