Malifaux Treasure Hunt marker

The hobby challenge for the last tournament I went to (the St Valentine’s Slaughter) was to bring along a treasure marker themed to the event and your chosen Master.  In my case that was Sonnia.  I decided to make my theme instead be ‘a marker I’ll actually use again’.  The Henchman did generously suggest that the locked box could be symbolising Sonnia’s quest / penchant for forbidden lore, but I think he was just being nice.  Anyway, of a public vote I rightly came in fourth (of four entries) with zero votes; the other three were really good and can be seen here.

The marker itself is a treasure chest from the Ogre Kingdoms Ironblaster kit.


Next on the painting table: the Illuminated (still).

  1. While its occasionally fun to theme things like objective markers and bits of terrain to armies/forces/characters, keeping them somewhat generic is a lot more practical. Although nice objective markers make a big difference to games visually (as far as I am concerned anyway) few people ever get around to making/painting them. With that in mind it seems that only the rarest of rare gamers will ever get specific objective markers made for each hero/force.

    Which is a long winded way of saying “I approve of this approach” 🙂

    • You’ve pretty much nailed my motivation there. It wasn’t the best treasure marker on display, but it was probably the one that’ll get more than just one use.
