Having recently starting to collect Malifaux models, I have been spending quite some time assembling and painting them. I recently finished -- completely finished, paint, basing and all -- my first model of the bunch, and thought I would share it with you.
The model is called a Large Steampunk Arachnid and is exactly what it sounds like: a giant mechanical spider. It was a bit of a pain to assemble, as each leg was a separate piece that needed to be held in place to set; this was only made more difficult by my desire to model the spider in an action pose, climbing over a tipped oil barrel. Still, I think the end result was worth the effort. Check it out below:
I will keep you updated with the progress of the rest of my models as I paint and assemble them. I think the next batch I will tackle will be the M&SU Assets box (Kaeris and company) as they require the least assembly and only really need painting. That being said, I'm still in the market for some good props for the bases, so I need to keep my eyes out. Yet I digress.
'til next time!
