Age of Strife

Blog Subject:  Malifaux - Avatars

I haven't got Twisting Fates book yet (was not going to bother), but on reading about the Avatars for each of the different Factions and seeing what the Pandora & Rasputina look like I had a bit of a compulsive purchase (nearly as bad as I have with Games Workshop)....

So I got both and have put them together - Pandora was a bit of effort as it came in 2 metal pieces and 5 resin which did not fit perfectly without a lot of shaping and cutting - but am now really happy with it.


I think Rasputina Avatar of Famine will be quite an easy one to paint, very much like what I did for the Ice Golem then flesh up Rasputina body.


Pandora will be a bit more effort but the contrast between the Tentacles and the Serpent trails will be interesting.
Love the Teenage Candy - will have to think how her clothes will look compared to her smaller self.

Finally, could not resist getting the old sculpt of Pandora opening her box (remember seeing this 5 years ago and thinking of buying it as a Daemonhost for the previous Daemonhunter codex).
Thinking of using it once she has managed to meet one of her Manifest Requirements.

They look really good. So are these what characters turn into?

Yep, with the release of Twisting Fates a character Hamlin released a plague but instead of killing the Masters, it transformed their link to Malifaux magic. So if a master succeeds in two types of manifestations (different for each master) they can transform into these advanced forms.

There was a worry on the forums that this was going to be a 'GW Codex' creep, but most feedback is positive.

Going to be interesting to use them once I'm use to the rules.
