Malifaux: Legion Of Sorrows so far

It's impossible to only own one crew in Malifaux with some many great models. The models in Pandora's crew were some of the those that got me interested in Malifaux in the first place so I definitely wanted those next:

Baby Kade and Candy are tiny figures (Kade especially) so they're not easy to paint at all. I just need to paint Pandora now and they're done to 35SS. In addition to these, I've got Coppelius and Insidious Madness to add (and some Alps for Coppelius to summon).

Sister of Battle at 1000 points list

I was quite excited when I heard Sisters were getting a new Codex in White Dwarf as I'm a huge fan of the army. They're what I've been playing most in 40K this year of the few days I've been able to play. However, once the thing arrived I was fairly disappointed. Some of my favourite units (Inquisitors for example) were gone, and as I write this GW doesn't seem to making any efforts to bring the cost of the Battle Sisters down at all.

But, since I like the army, I wanted to persevere with it so I sat down and wrote up a list to replace my old 1000 point list:

Uriah Jacobus, 5 Death Cult Assassins, 4 Crusaders in a Rhino (260)

Battle Sister Squad, Melta gun, heavy flamer, rhino (180)
Battle Sister Squad, MG, Storm Bolter, Rhino (163)

6 Seraphim, twin hand flamers, power sword for Superior (130)

Exorcist (135)
Exorcist (135)

From my old list, my old jump pack Canoness is gone (no jump pack available now, plus I don't need her 2 Faith points any more), Inquisitor and retinue are gone, and my small unit Inquisitorial Storm Troopers are also gone. In are the Seraphim, and Jacobus who is pretty much mandatory I think.

I don't want to spend a ton of cash on new units so I'm having to make do with what I've got. Jacobus and his unit I don't own, but I think I can build them from plastics fairly cheaply.

I haven't tried this list yet, so I'll post some feedback once I get to trying it out.

Malifaux: Nicodem Crew completed (for now)

Two months without a post.... I've just been really pushed for time these last few months, and blogging is one things that has gone by the wayside a little bit.

Anyway, I've not been totally idle on the gaming front. I've played a couple of games of Malifaux with my Nicodem crew (1 draw Vs The Viktorias, 1 loss Vs Lady J), and done some Malifaux painting.

My mindless zombie horde is done now.... me 8 Mindless Zombies in my crew. I can really recommend these models from Studio Miniatures, they're really nicely scuplted.

Malifaux being a game that features alot of counters, I decided to knock up proper ones.

Corpse Counters (probably need more of these really):

Evidence Markers:

Treasure and Claim Markers:

And finally some Shafted markers for my Crooked Men:

I'm just short of some dynamite counters and a supply wagon and I'll have a full set.
