So fickle as I am I let myself to be persuade to start yet another game: Malifaux.
Back in the day the miniatures were quite fugly, but just as the Infinity ones the newest incarnations are very good. They use a highly detailled plastic these days, as the beautiful, stripped to the muscles, backside of this Doppleganger proves.
Two because it is beautiful;)
Beside that I bought the Box of (with) Pandora and directly started to paint as I want to use the green of the plastic as a baseline. (It happens that there are special plastic variants to be bought, one of which I got by acident obiously)
This is (maybe) my colour for the ghosts in the box. It was a quick and dirty paintjob, but still I think it is effective (and it retains some of the green plastic hue). Somehow the models did not inspire me to a great paintjob, it might be the varying quality or the lifeless design on some parts or the price. Latter is sometimes even higher than our most hated double-lettered producer. The detail is really great and I think the human models will get better paintjobs, but the fitting was improvable in many cases. All in all I have mixed feelings about the game and models, we´ll see.
Here more of my to paint box, my NeoTerra await their reinforcements (hence the bases), also that is a Tiger soldier and a Yan Huo there, I don´t know why…
