Here is a single Oiran to run with my Malifaux Ten Thunders crews (or other crews since Oiran are mercenaries). They actually come in packs of three but Aramoro theorised that (being Showgirls) they would work well with his Colette du Bois crew so we split the box. As is a common theme in Malifaux Oiran are ‘ladies of negotiable affection’ though amazingly they aren’t dead, demonic or anything else horrible to go with it. In general I’ve found the Oiran to be pretty handy supporting my own crew’s willpower and occasionally Luring someone in to be beaten to death, preferably after they’ve activated for the turn.
Painting-wise I don’t think that the photos are doing this one much justice as there are a few highlights which are washed out by the pictures. Still, blowing up to huge size does show I’ve been particularly sloppy with line matching on the front of the sash. It’s not a bad miniature, but I’m not likely to go back for one of the cheapest minions in my collection.
Next on the painting table: Luna.
