Born to die...

...or already dead. The bandana hides the true image of one of Lady Justice's most loyal marshals - the Judge.

I entered it in the Rotten Harvest painting contest organised by Wyrd Games and it took 2nd place. This won me a 15$ voucher. The irony of it all is that the shipping cost is... you guessed it - 16$. Still, I can't complain as I was planning to make an order there anyway. Maelstromgames have been lousy with my Malifaux orders so far so I'll have to give the Wyrd store a go. If the pic is too small after clicking on it, try opening it in a new tab.

I stuck to the original color scheme while keeping the model tied to the contest Halloween theme. I added some dirt on the cloak using Vallejo dry pigments but I received many comments praising the bloody look of this element so I guess I unintentionally achieved another thing than I had originally planned. This may be due to the fact that this pigment looks more red than brown on a brighter surface.

I've started working on a few other Malifaux models so stick around to see some WIP shots. To finish things off, here's a nice song by one of the recent youtube sensations - I like the live version more than the studio one. I think it gave her a better chance to really show off how well she acts with her voice. Anyway, I'll leave you with the song and let you be the Judge.


  1. Congratulations on the 2nd place :)
    I really like the pants, nice jeanslook. It does look very much like blood the dirt, I have to agree ;)

  2. The bloody effects are awesome!!
