Painted Mature Nephilim

This big chap is a Mature Nephilim for my Malifaux Neverborn. As you can probably tell from the appearance, Mature Nephilim are unsubtle murder machines best suited for use as some kind of linebreakers. They’re fast on the charge and can fly so my most effective use of them has been simply throwing them into enemy crews and letting them get on with it while the rest of my crew goes about scoring points. They can grow from Terror Tots and Young Nephilim and I find it far more amusing to try to do that rather than hiring these guys right from the start. Even if it never happens, players get careful when there is a possibility that a wounded Young Nephilim could suddenly turn into a fully-healed bruiser like the Mature Nephilim.

I like the aesthetic of the Mature Nephilim, being a straightforward demon amalgamated from many familiar sources, though I would state that it looks bit squat. Probably that is a good thing; with that wingspan it is quite hard to fit neatly into my case anyway. Painting it was quite dull though since almost the whole model is skin. I could have livened it up with tattoos or a variable skin tone but they didn’t really fit with the way that I’d painted the other Nephilim so I just left it.

Next on the painting table: Doppelganger.

    That seems a tried and true tactic, especially if the thing they are focusing out of the fight has a chance to come back stronger!

    • Thanks! It’s for sure that Young Nephilim don’t take a lot of work to bring down, but the occasional opportunity to turn one into a Mature is well worth it.
