Painted Leveticus

Here is Leveticus, another of the Outcast faction masters for Malifaux. He has a lot of strange rules in the game that make him play very differently to most options. Leveticus uses his wounds as a resource to fuel his attacks (though somewhat less so after a rebalancing errata from Wyrd) and is very hard to permanently kill. Upon death he is instead buried and can unbury from a Hollow Waif at the end of the turn. This leads him to a very interesting forward planning game style where you need to think in advance where you’ll want Leveticus to appear in the following turn and place your pieces accordingly. The high mobility and survivability this affords is really useful for some schemes, especially Undercover Entourage. In addition, Leveticus has a fairly easy trigger to turn enemy models into Abominations upon death, which makes him really strong for the Interference strategy. I’ve yet to dabble in Leveticus’s wide hiring pool from the Pariah of Iron / Bone upgrades, partly because I don’t really own the miniatures that would make it useful, partly because everyone else seems to consider that to be the optimum play for him, and mostly because I really like the Outcast options.

Considering that Leveticus is, at heart, a part of the ‘mad scientist’ style of miniature, I felt that a white lab coat was the way to go for him. Unfortunately, this meant that my camera simply would not focus properly on him against the white background so my photos are, if possible, even less good that usual.  I really like the way the pink details contracts with the white coat.
