Painted Hollow Waifs

These hapless ladies are Hollow Waifs; they are the totems for the Malifaux Outcast master Leveticus. There isn’t much to say about them in game; you might as well hire two with Leveticus most games since they’re free and no-one else can hire them at all. They provide the mechanic for Leveticus’s fairly entertaining in-game life and death cycle. Hollow Waifs are not very hard to kill, which somewhat inconveniences Leveticus, but on the other hand they don’t really contribute much to a game other than a bit of activation control so they’re rarely fully in harm’s way. Positioning them to be safe but allowing Leveticus to unbury out of them into a threatening part of the board can be a challenge, especially considering that they additionally need to be close to a six (or more) soulstone model when it happens.

I decided to make them very visually distinct from each other with completely different dress colours. Of course, each still has a little pink on them to make them fit in with the rest of the Outcasts. I have to admit that I spent very little time on them, as befits their role in Leveticus’s grand scheme.

  1. Levi is one master I’d really like to try. His die-and-resurrect mechanic sounds like tons of fun (and tons of headaches for your opponent) ^^;

    • Leveticus is a lot of fun. Thanks to his die-and-resurrect mechanic he has great mobility, though it does need a bit of forward planning on where you put the Waifs and the activation order.
