Last night I got off to a good start on my new Malifaux crew for Gaining Grounds; Vengeful Spirits.
I choose the crew based on the Assault On The Gray Lord scenario/fiction from the Malifaux Crossroads rulebook. Basically the story depicts Molly and Kirai as vengeful forces laying waste to some really bad people in Malifaux. What's cool about it is that it sticks with the idea that Molly and Kirai are both unhinged and lacking in moral compass but it still lets them be the heroines of the story. One of the other things I really liked about the Vengeful Spirits box is that although it's still Resurrectionists it really does represent some figures and ideas that are completely different than the rest of that collection.
I started off with Kirai because unlike most of the other crew boxes where you can use 50-75% of the models with another Master there are only 2 figures in the entire box I can use if Kirai is not in play. So it just makes sense to get her done first. I'm happy with how Kirai turned out but less happy with how she photographed (that's becoming a theme for me), her dress is a very light green (but looks overly yellow in the picture) and the flowers on her dress and in her hair are a very light purple which contrasts well with the darker colours they are set against but somehow they seem washed out and dark in the photo.
At any rate I'm happy to have gotten started and if all goes to plan (does it ever?) I should have this crew done in time to game with this Friday.
Wish me luck!
