This week I'm excited to finally have my third complete Malifaux starter painted and ready for the table top! This is the M&SU, led by Ramos, a mad scientist with a knack for all things robotic. His starter has a wonderfully diverse array of models included within it, allowing a hobbyist plenty of room to use a number of color palettes. Let's take a look at the models up close!
Here's Ramos himself, clad in the khakis and browns of a tenured professor.
I based all of the M&SU models on Scrap Bases, 40mm Wreck Bases, and 50mm Wreck Bases, which are awesome for basing, and can also act as markers when they don't have a model placed on them!
Here's a perfect example of just that; the Steam Arachnids are based on Scrap Bases and the bases seen pictured by themselves are Scrap Markers. You could even paint the Arachnids and the bases without gluing the two together and when an Arachnid dies you simply remove it from the base and then it's a scrap marker!
I showed you Joss a few weeks back, but he's just too cool, so here he is again!
The Brass Arachnid is Ramos's totem and acts like a support unit, reactivating allies to give them two full activations in one turn.
With Ramos's help Howard Langston survived his brush with death... well sort of. Ramos was kind enough to turn him into a cyborg and equip him with a nasty array of shears and pincers... nevermind the part about being a mindless automaton.
I wanted Howard to be closer to the undead end of the cyborg spectrum, looking as if he was truly holding on to life thanks to his mechanical enhancements. A few glowing relays across his skin and a baleful eye did the trick nicely.
That's it for this week, be sure to stop by the Monster Lab Web Store to check out the bases I featured here today, and the rest of our complete line! There's more new releases coming soon and I'm excited to feature them here. If you like what you've seen here and have any question about the game of Malifaux or would like to commission a painted crew, feel free to message me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Until I see you again next time, good hobbying!
