Painted Abominations

Here are the Abominations (formerly Steampunk Abominations) for my Malifaux Outcasts. They’re thematically aligned with Leveticus, and though they can be hired by any Outcast master I almost never find that I want to. Instead, they can be summoned by various models’ triggers on attacks, notably Leveticus himself and Rusty Alyce, when a victim dies. Needless to say, they’re not especially good in their own right. Instead, they are quite annoying to be near, stopping the use of (0) actions and removing built-in suits for some actions. This means that summoning them near priority enemy models can be a form of causing Slow as they need to spend AP to clear themselves of the irritating Abomination. I’m often conflicted on doing this as some schemes and strategies score point for killing things, and summoning a load of weak minions right next to their hardest pieces can be a way to haemorrhage points. Therefore it needs consideration about whether this is actually valuable in each game.

The miniatures themselves are a pleasingly eclectic bunch. As befits a group of cheap irritation pieces, I kept the painting as simple as possible, with minimal colours on each. They were really enjoyable to put paint on though, as each is an individual quite unlike any of the others.
