Malifaux: Big Boy Nephilim and his younger bros

I bought my first Malifaux box at the beginning of August. It was Lilith – The Mother of Monsters set. I painted Lilith almost immediately and at that actual moment I remember I was thinking: Hey, that was quick! I should paint more of Malifaux models in about week or two and play the game! Yeah…what a wishful thinking:) The post about Lilith is from 15th August, so probably I painted her few days before that.  Let’s see… over two months and I finally painted all miniatures I wanted to be prepared before I even think about playing Malifaux. Yeah, one week my ass…;). So, two months later – I finally finished the miniatures I planned to paint before I leave Poland.  Honestly, what was I thinking? I wanted to paint 10 models for my starting Infinity Nomads force (failed to achieve that – om;y 4 painted) plus few miniatures for Warhammer Skaven Army. There is no way I could keep up all these three projects at the same time. I mean there is – …

They came from the woods – Waldgeists (Malifaux, Neverborn)

It has been around one month since I painted my latest Malifaux miniature (Barbaros of Neverborn). Well, way to much time if you ask me…  (I needed to upgrade my Skaven army  – continuous process – and working on Infinity as well). I really enjoy painting these Malifaux models – so many details and such diversity – in one faction you could find so many different possibilities to paint. Neverborn that I chose for the start have so many crazy wicked miniatures, that I got little overwhelmed with options. What to get first? And what next? Everything looks so great! Serious decision was about to be made here. It took me some time but I’ve decided. Lilith and her bunch of monsters will be my first master for Malifaux. I was painting Lilith box set for few weeks (all interrupted with my other projects). Lilith herself, Terror Tots and Cherub, and finally Barbaros. And the question was which direction I should go? After some Malifaux Internet guides digging I’ve decided to purchase Waldgeists  and Nephilms …

Malifaux project – Barbaros of Neverborn

Oh, the last week was crazy busy for me – I did not had much time for painting. Thankfully I’ve found spare moment to write battle report of my Warhammer Fantasy battle Skaven vs Dogs of War (I have one more beetle to write about – this week for sure), but almost no painting from me… Shame, shame, shame – I tell you that…I have no excuses… …and therefore my backside projects Infinity and Malifaux are seriously late! I got about 5 weeks until my departure to Australia and I haven’t painted sufficient models to play even one lousy tutorial game . This week though will be better – that’s certain. It can’t be worse. I have serious hobby plans, oh yes I have. I want to paint few miniatures and sort my travelling painting set. At least some part of it – at first I’m going to arrange minis I want to take with me for the trip. There will be much more than last year. I’m planning to travel around 6 months, so …

Malifaux Project – Neverborn: Cherub and terror Tots

For me it’s kind of race against time at the moment. I have less than two months until my departure to Australia and I still have so many things to arrange and take care of. And I’m not talking only about  my hobby life – stuff is getting serious in all areas of my life. Professional, friends and family… In fact, I shouldn’t sit every evening and play with my little plastic, metal and resin toys, but plan ahead and try to figure out what should I prepare or organize. Oh, yeah, I’m hopeless example of ‘raisefieber’ guy… Thankfully, painting miniatures calms me down. At least a little.  So, I do this every evening  – as a replacement activity – trying not to think about my next big trip… I know I’m exaggerate here a little – to be completely honest I don’t have THAT much to right now. It’s just all in my head…maybe it’s one more reason to paint some more  – to clear my mind and relax a little. After all – …

Starting my next project: Neverborn – Lilith Mother of Monsters.

So, it finally happened. I began my another project – Malifaux.  I plan this to be my next big thing next to Infinity. I want to finish painting all necessary models to play both games till the end of September. All because I’d like to play tutorial game of Malifaux and Infinity before I depart to Australia and Asia. Hopefully I will be able to pack enough miniatures to play with some gamers met on the road. And the beauty of all skirmish games – I don’t need many models to play. Perfect for travelling. Last week I’ve painted Infinity Reverend Custodier from Nomads – Bakunin Jurisdictional Force. Awesome experience. Made me want abandon painting Games Workshop for a while. So different – both with style and sculpt. Miniature is so thin and have lots of details. Simply piece of art. I was about to paint another model from Infinity –  Moderator with spitfire. I even cleaned and primed it. …and then I looked at my recently rearranged shelf with my boxes full of miniatures. …
