Cooper and the Gang

These Malifaux miniatures from the Lord Cooper Core Box were painted for a customer who'd also ordered a wild T-Rex 3D print to go with the gang! After some light conversion work and assembly effort we had a characterful crew to brush an earthy colour scheme on - the main inspiration was our Halloween Giants and their muted, medieval palette. The dinosaur had a lengthy tongue added to depict its in-game flail attacks - we used a 40K Tyranid tail shaped and bent into appropriate shape to achieve the effect. The basing follows the principle of a traditional forest floor with slightly mossy boulders.

Dwell in Darkness

These Blackstone Fortress Villains from the base set, Dreaded Ambull and Traitor Command expansions were painted for our customers existing collection, and matched to the overall vibe and basing style of the previously painted heroes. The palette here is a rather straightforward Chaos Renegade scheme with feral and militaristic details and warm color tones. These were then complemented with the cold hues in some of the creatures as well as the basing features.

The fearsome Ambull and vigilant Spindle Drones.

Arco-Flagellants and Rogue Psykers.

Armed Renegade Rabble with a Traitor Commissar.

And finally some imposing Heretic Astartes!

Civil War doing the rounds

We recently got some cool attention in the international 30K scene with our in-house tournament Civil War's patrol format doing rounds in social media. A gaming group headed by @mp_miniatures based their local event in Spain on our system, and judging by the pictures created an amazing patrol experience for their sixteen players. Our friends at SN Battle Reports also gave the system a shout-out in their Initiative 10 YouTube podcast, which we hope has sparked some patrol enthusiasm among their followers. It's super cool to see some of the stuff we put out inspire hobbyists and gamers worldwide - Civil War especially is such a dear tradition to us and I genuinely think it's a nice casual format for beginners and veterans alike. It's also a sweet spot when it comes to the hobby, as the 500 point lists are much more approachable as projects compared to a full tournament-sized 3000 point army, which can take months or years to put together.

Thanks for all the shout outs - make sure to give the Initiative 10 Podcast and other SN Battle Reports broadcasts a follow!
