Soulless Life - Second Steampunk Abomination

Finished the next Steampunk Abomination. It's not an especially easy one to photograph well with its pose but the pictures give you enough of an idea of what's going on with it. It's another lovely sculpt, the SPAs really are well done. It looks a little shiny at the minute from the glazes but it'll get a coat of varnish later and that'll fix that issue.

 On to number three!

Soulless Life - Steampunk Abomination

The first finished Steampunk Abomination. These are all awesome sculpts and really, really, twisted! This particular fella has no legs and his entrails spilling out into a bag that's been nailed to his hips as he carries himself along on drills that have been grafted on in place of hands. This is Steampunk Horror!
Individually these things aren't too much to worry about but they can be grafted together to form a Desolation Engine (which will be painted too in the not too distant future) and that's definitely something to worry about!

Soulless Life - Rusty Alyce

Made a start painting The Desolate & Soulless crew for Malifaux, led by Leveticus. From the blurb on the crew boxset:

Leveticus is a master of both Construct technology and the vile necromantic arts. His strange experiments embody the abominations possible when man meddles with the natural order. Fighting for Soulstone and increasing influence, the decay and destruction brought by Leveticus and his minions is unmistakable.

Dead bodies are a common sight in Malifaux, but Leveticus leaves behind nothing but dust.

The Desolate & Soulless are a really interesting crew in Malifaux. They have a lot of very different mechanics that really mess with the natural order of the game. Leveticus himself has found a way to cheat death. Tethering his soul to Hollow Waifs, as long as these mindless servants of his are in play then he will come back from the dead.

I've started with his protege, Rusty Alyce. I wanted to paint her in a way that would greatly contrast the rest of the crew so decided to go with the pink outfit.

 Should have a Steampunk Abomination finished for this crew tomorrow all being well!

Don't I know you from somewhere? Hey, wait a minute! You're me!

Ah the doppelganger, queen of changing shapes, master of disguise. She fails at life a bit though, because she's changing into someone that isn't even part of Wyrds mini range! Still it's a really nice idea for a model they had, even if I couldn't get Robbie Williams' Rock DJ out of my head the whole time I was painting it...

My goodness, that child has a knife! Mothers these days eh?

Baby Kade is done. Working through at a fairly fast rate now. You may notice his swirly thing on the top of his head is flesh coloured. My reasoning behind this is that I don't consider it hair, I see it as the whispy smoke type thing that sorrows and woes appear from in the fluff :)

Sweet like ......

...a small child with a pair of scissors that wants to stab you in the eye with them.

Candy is done, and I'm now moving onto my first sorrow (green for the first one, each will be a different colour to easily identify them on the table). So here, without further ado is the young madam herself!
