Help me decide what I'm painting next for Malifaux!

Hi everybody, going to depart from telling all of you what I've been working on lately and ask any of you who are interested to tell me what I'm painting next.

I'm joining an escalation league at my FLGS Lords Of War Games & Hobbies in Oakville and I'd like to try taking a vote to decide what I'll be painting and playing.

The league grows from 20 Soul Stones (points) to 50 Soul Stones over 4 weeks.  It all kicks off this week so my only restriction is that I have to start off basing my force around a henchman (that's a leader in low points value games) that I already own the figure for.  I've listed the 3 options below, please vote in the comments section:

Sebastian - Resurrectionists
Sebastian is the assistant to Dr McMourning who you would have seen in an earlier post.  A force built around Sebastian would be comprised largely of zombies and zombie-like creatures as well as some of Dr McMourning's lovely morgue assistants.

Taelor - Mercenaries
Taelor is a mercenary armed with a magical hammer she uses to smash her foes (particularly robot-types) into pulp.  A force led by Taelor would have a mish-mash of outcasts and mercenaries and would generally represent a melting-pot of the people of Malifaux.

Sidir - Ten Thunders/Guild
Sidir is a mysterious figure from the middle-east.  He generally fights at the side of gentleman-adventurer Lucas McCabe.  His speciality is wrangling ne'er do wells and "gentlemen" who have fallen on hard times and using them as an effective fighting force.

Due to the league starting this week I have to make a decision ASAP so I will take votes all weekend and start painting Monday as soon as I get brush in hand.

  2. My vote is for Sidir. The Relic Hunters models all remind me of Indiana Jones characters, which is always a good thing.

    1. Agreed Dan. I actually saw Sidir himself as a cross between Morgan Freeman in Robin Hood and Oded Fehr in The Mummy.
