So we begin this week's achievements with maybe the easiest painting / modelling project that anyone ever undertakes - making some statues out of old models. I've had a few of these old 1st edition multi-part Chaos Warriors hanging around in a bag for precisely this purpose for way too long. So I did them. They're definitely this week's 'Drawer of Shame' contribution!
The Crossroads Cult, that I have played in all our previous games of DracAm has been....a bit iffy for me. The summoning rules seem really good when you can have two extra d10 level models on board, especially in a one off game, at one time!
So I dug into my old box of Malifaux models to see what else I could come up with and the answer, amazingly, seems to be the Congregation posse. To be quite honest it's mostly been about the fact that Marcus makes an excellent Hougan and the Malifaux Razorspine Rattler will be an epic Temple Snake.
I've painted up Marcus and Miranda as the Hougan and Vessel to lead the posse. Marcus is a great model and while Miranda is a bit bland, she kind of feels like the pose is right!
And finally, three gunfighters - Hans, the Convict Gunslinger and Rusty Alice. I always loved the insane 'sniper' rifle that Hans has and giving the gunslinger Prison Orange pants was too good an opportunity to pass up.
This month's contribution to the Stupid. I've got a lot of the base coats on so just have to do all the highlights. Towers of Skulls are *not* helpful for this. Also I've block painted the last of the knights for my KoW army so they should get done too. I've got another half a dozen or so Malifaux Arcanist models as well that might be able to do duty as a different posse in DracAm - probably Tong as most of them are waving around giant hammers - so they might find their way towards the painting table too.
