Here are some iconic Wyrd miniatures to go in my Malifaux Neverborn crews. Wicked Dolls have the Puppet keyword and hence have some slight synergy with their master, Collodi, who can also summon them. But I have to admit that I have been unable to get much value out of mine, so if anyone has any clever idea about what to do with the cute little dolls then I’d be happy to read it. They are a cheap activation, but they’re in the same cost bracket as the Effigies, Terror Tots and Gupps who I’ve had much more success with. Indeed, if I only wanted cheap activations (and was playing Collodi) I’d probably take Marionettes as they are even cheaper.
For painting I wanted a sack-cloth look with brighter point colours. So these Wicked Dolls have mainly ended up brown and purple, with their cute button eyes picked out in primary colours for more contrast. They were quick to paint (even for me) and it’s nice to get them out of the queue, even if I am not really sure how best to utilise them.
