These cute little chaps are Gupps, part of my Malifaux Neverborn crews. They hold the Swampfiend keyword and are therefore arguable thematically linked with Zoraida; however she doesn’t interest me and I’m not really a big fluff player anyway. They come three to a base and while I could have split them up further to get more bases of Gupps, I have never found that I wanted more than three at a time. Their main attraction is being cheap and have a Leap which will work on any mask card, both qualities which make them suitable a scheme runners. Even at the low price, I realised that with the combination of a Spawn Mother and Will O The Wisp I could summon as many Gupps as I would ever require and therefore stopped hiring them (and actually I find Terror Tots more entertaining at the same cost).
For such simple pieces, I kept a deliberately simple colour scheme; two tones of green for the body, yellow eyes and then ended by picking out the teeth. The Gupps are tiny, and although they’re very cute, they are also a bit of a pain to get into more detail for painting. I did enjoy getting to the final result swiftly though.
