Back in the late 2000s I went through a brief flirtation with Wyrd Miniatures and the crazy steampunk world of Malifaux. It never really stuck but it did leave me with a handful of models which are either unpainted or painted in a manner that at the time I mistakenly believed looked good but which, in the cold light of day, was actually a bit shit. Anyway, I stumbled on this little dude in amongst some other stuff and decided that he really deserved a repaint (I won’t show you how he looked before – suffice to say that, for a ninja, he was rather garish…).
Apparently this is a witchling stalker – and not, as I always believed, some kind of goblin ninja. It seems that these are sorcerers who have been enslaved in some manner (my understanding of the Malifaux lore is a bit sketchy as you can probably tell) and are now used by the Witch Hunters of the Guild to hunt down other mages.
In theory I have two more somewhere, although god only knows where at the moment. When I find them, or any of my other Malifaux gear for that matter, I’ll probably give them a quick update as well.
