I have been painting up an The Kin crew for Malifaux.  I like the gremlin faction, and enjoy their haphazard way of getting things done.  The miniatures are full of character, and have a mischievous streak about them.

I picked up some after market miniatures and bits from several different companies.  I want to post them so others can see the type of packaging the companies use, and quality of the miniatures.

Tau Suits 2

Here are some more Tau Crisis Battle Suits.

Tau Suits

I began collecting Tau miniatures when GW released them in late 2001.  I think it was the Crisis Battle Suits that attracted me to collect the army.  The suits reminded me of Robotech mecha.  I remember the army didn't play well on the table, it was weak in every aspect imaginable.  I placed my Tau army away in storage and moved on.

Today I enjoy the painting and building part of the hobby, and play games once in a while.  I wanted to update my Tau army, and give it a second life.  I spent many hours assembling and posing my Tau.  I believe the original Crisis Suits were to static and cried out for motion.  I used green stuff, pins, and after market bits to help give my Tau some variety.

I do own one of the new Crisis Suit boxes that came out last year.  The new suits designed well. The problems I address above are not present on the new suits, which is a good development for the kits.  I look forward to putting the new suits together when I find time.

The unique bits were designed by Jon Paulson of Paulson Games, whose bits can be found on Red Dog Minis website.

The Butcher

I painted up The Butcher from Kingdom Death: Monster.  I like this model, its dark detail makes it a creepy experience to paint.
