I painted some more Malifaux miniatures a little while ago, but never got round to taking pictures. Here is Francisco Ortega. In the story, he’s a righteous bad-ass, second only to his sister, Perdita in the ‘hard as nails’ stakes. However, in the game he is somewhat overshadowed by his brothers (or maybe cousins) Nino and Santiago. Still, I’ve had some luck with him as a deterrent to charging Nino or Santiago as, while neither of them could fight their way out of a wet paper bag, Francisco is pretty stabby with his sword as long as he doesn’t get killed first (which is depressingly easy to do).
I love the miniature as it just oozes menace and it was a joy to paint, though it does suffer from the Flat Stanley stylings of many other Wyrd models. Handily, the Ortegas fit quite nicely into the colour scheme I’ve been using for the rest of my Guild force.
Next on the painting table: Santiago Ortega.
