A terrifying dandy

Lucius doesn't look like a warrior but he can be one if it's needed. Despite his inconspicuous looks, he is one of the most terrifying creatures in Malifaux. It's also hard to actually land a hit on him and make him bleed. Other than that he has some very nice tricks up his sleeve that allow him to quickly slingshot reinforcements where they're most needed. This skill should suit Lady Justice pretty well.
So, without further ado, here's Lucious, the power behind the throne.

   

I had another mishap while painting him as I applied varnish brush-on and followed with a light spray of matt varnish. It created some nasty residue in placed where the first varnish hadn't dried completely and I needed to repaint the red jacket.
I painted the golden embellishments on his sleeves and collar using NMM as I think this technique works well for materials. The mask was painted using darker gold to add an element of contrast that I thought was necessary.

            

I'm making slow but steady progress with my Malifaux backlog. I try to paint them while working on the Hobbit stuff. The first quarter of the year is almost over and I've already painted 9 of the remaining 36 minis. I may actually be able to complete the rest by the end of the year!
