Painted Hinamatsu

This is Hinamatsu, a Henchman for my long-neglected Malifaux collection. It is strictly a part of the Neverborn faction but has a keyword that allows it to join an Qi ang Gong crew in Ten Thunders which is where I am aiming for now. However, I haven’t actually played any meaningful amount of Malifaux lately so I’m not sure how Hinamatsu fits into the wider game. In M2E it was a hilarious blending machine with those four katanas so I’m hoping that M3E has been similarly kind.

I absolutely love the sculpt for Hinamatsu; it just oozes grace without being over-stated. I deliberately kept a straightforward colour scheme with the greens for clothing and brown for the mannequin as I just felt that this was the kind of character that should be classy and avoid ostentation attire. Hinamatsu was a joy to paint and came out just the way I was hoping.

I dedicate this post to Azazel‘s Jewel of July blogging challenge. As a leader of a crew (or Henchman in most cases), Hinamatsu fits as a jewel of my collection. Thanks, as always, to Azazel for organising these blogging challenges.

Next on the painting table: Spider-Man.

  1. Nice! Took me a moment to figure out what was going on with this mini – very cool!

    • Thanks. That’s a fair point – Hinamatsu has a lot going on. It’s a four-armed mannequin with a parasol and more katanas than are strictly necessary.

  2. I really miss playing Malifaux, I enjoyed Me2, sadly, I have no players near by to play, thus I have lost my drive to paint more Malifaux. I do love the sculpts from Wyrd, so I may have to take a look at the new rules and grab a crew box!

    • I saw on your own blog that you might have to move so maybe you’ll end up somewhere with a more active gaming community? I really like Wyrd’s sculpts and they’re getting less frustrating to assemble as the company grows in experience. But I know that it’s not always easy to motivate yourself to paint a miniature that you’ll never use.

  3. Very nice, I do like the green and brown.

  4. Nicely done. The fabric and all those folds look great..
