About Me

My photo
I'm a bit of a born-again wargamer! I played many of the Games Workshop games when I was in my teens and early twenties, but left the hobby behind when I went to University. Over the last few years I have gradually got back into it and am literally having a ball! I'll play pretty much anything now, ranging from ancient historical to the far future! I think that I get more out of the painting side of things than actually playing, but that might just be because I get more opportunity. Hence the title...this blog is all about the colour of war!!

March Malifaux Madness

Just realised that I've not blogged in a week and a half! I wanted to keep some momentum up this year, so I had better bring it up to date. As you'll guess from the title, this month's focus so far has been in clearing off some of the Malifaux backlog I have. We saw the Silurids last month and after that post I just decided to forge ahead on Zoraida's crew and get them done.
You have no idea how many times I glued my fingers together!
There is actually a little incentive for this, which is a Malifaux event happening here in Glasgow a week tomorrow. The event is a tournament, but with facilities to turn up and play some casual games. I'm really tempted by the tourney, but I've only played a couple of games and I don't think I could complete the games in the allotted time for reading the cards and the books, which wouldn't be fair on the opposition. So the aim is to turn up, watch some tournament play, soak up the atmosphere and get a couple of casual games in as an intro to Zoraida. Details of the event for anyone interested can be found here.

First up are my favourite figures from this crew. The Stitched Together! Yes, they are very reminiscent of the boogeyman from Nightmare Before Christmas, but that's OK! He was the coolest bit of that film anyway! Plus these up the grotesque quotient a notch!
Next is the all important Voodoo Doll. This is a pretty small and insignificant miniature, but he has a big impact on the game, as he lets Zoraida target enemy models with her spells irrespective of distance and LOS, as long as Zoraida can see them when she summons the doll. Very handy!
The big lump you see in the first picture, Bad Juju, is about halfway complete and then it's just Zoraida herself. I hope to get them done this weekend which leaves me next week to finish off the basing.

Tuesday should see another Muskets & Tomahawks game which I'll report on and I'll be sure to take some pictures of the Malifaux day and a couple of reports on the games. In the meantime, here's some pictures I took of the last game of Malifaux I played using Perdita against George with his Rasputina crew.

Perdita leads the rest of the Family up the other side of town.
Nino rushes into cover as a huge Ice Golem stamps up the street!
Papa Loco ducks past the towering ice monster to try and give it's Master a taste of his dynamite!
Santiago goes mano e mano with an Ice Gamin.

  1. Creepy figures. Thanks for the photos of the game play. Do you know the brand of the card stock buildings?

    1. The buildings are all George's and I believe they're Whitewash City - http://www.wargamevault.com/index.php?filters=0_0_0&manufacturers_id=506
