Painted Ronin

Here are the iconic Malifaux mercenaries, the Ronin from the Outcasts faction. They’re a cheap toolbox of handy skills whose biggest weakness is a pitiful resilience to incoming attacks. Otherwise, they’re mobile, ignore armour and can Flurry if the opportunity arises. They also have the convenient ability to Seppuku if needed, killing themselves for either cards or Soulstones. This is sometimes handy to get resources, but can also be a good way to deny someone points for Distract or similar schemes. They have a place in any Outcast crew, and can probably offer something useful to any crew in the game.

The original metal versions of the Ronin were based on the characters from Kill Bill, so I’m not really sure why they’re now dressed like they are on their way to cosplay at an anime conventions. Still, if giant teddy bears doesn’t break my suspension of disbelief in the world of Malifaux then I suppose I shouldn’t complain about fighters wearing high heels. Considering their slightly ridiculous clothing, I took the opportunity to apply some brighter colours here; each Ronin has a different one assigned. Of course, they all have pink ribbons to match the rest of my Outcasts.

I borrowed a lightbox for these photos, so the lighting is slightly better than normal from me. The photography is just as awful as usual though.
