Malifaux: Rasputina

Evening readers, been a while since the last update.........2 weeks, I'm slacking.

Interest in models lately has vanished, I've been struggling to find the energy and inspiration to actually do much. Instead I've been reading a lot having burnt through 3 books and a graphic novel since the last update.

Don't know what to do about the lack of interest, maybe a break from the hobby is in order?

I have however managed to pretty much finish Rasputina for the Malifaux crew:

Pretty pleased with her, they are the best eyes I have managed to paint in ages sort of a fluke that I didn't mess up the pupils haha. These malifaux models are very enoyable to paint when I actually find the mojo to paint, might be because I'm taking my time on them but who knows.

I shall be trying to get the 3 little ice demons from the box painted over coming days, We'll see how well that goes.

The current lack of interest in models won't be helped by the fact that Batman: Arkham City is released at the end of the week so I shall be lost to the Xbox.

Welcome to new followers Christopher and The_Great_Gonzo cheers for the support guys :)


  1. That is fantastic work, I wish I were capable of the same.
    As for disinterest in the hobby, I guess a break is in order. It is supposed to be fun, something you want to do. If it is not, I'd suggest not doing it until you want to.

    Hopefully the desire comes back.

  2. Thanks for the welcome. (This is Christopher, btw, in one of my other guises.) Great to be so warmly treated in a post that has your excellent Rasputina in it. And the many shades give that ice golem great depth. One of the best I've seen. Inspiring work all around.

  3. Top work as always mate, Just chill for a bit and the muse will be back. Usually after watching films for me (when i get chance)

  4. Very nice work for a slacker ;)

    Really liking the conversion of Rasputina, the coat seems more practical than just a furry hat.

    Ice golem looks rather nifty too.
