Malifaux: Seamus

I've been playing about for the past few games with Seamus, and more specifically Seamus, Avatar of Dread.  I really love the model so I wanted to try it out.

And two casts of Face of Death and a (2) Manifest Action later...

Painting them both at the same time meant I could get the colour the same on both models really easily.  The bright jacket he's wearing is a bit different for me as I don't usually paint bright colours.  I'm starting to move away from GW paints abit, so the jacket is "Blue Green" from Vallejo's Model Colour range.

I've only had a few games with Seamus so far, and I've tinkered around with a few build.  I did run a few games with a Terrifying/WP build of:

Seamus + Avatar
2 Onryo
The Hanged
Rotten Belle
7 or 8 SS (what ever the balance is out of that lot)

The idea being everything attacks Wp.  aSeamus debuffs Wp, plus triggers stupidly high terrifying checks and bellow like a big bastard.  The Hanged has a nasty - to Wp trigger, and the Onryo can strip Wp Immunities.  I need to run it a few more time to get the hang of it, but it's OK.  The Nurse is their for the free turn 2 manifest but hasn't proved to be worth 5SS as yet.
