|What's In The Soulstone Bag? #2|
I am constantly looking for new information and tactics on the web regarding Malifaux. I find more blogs and twitter accounts to follow almost daily. I think one of the best additions to my arsenal of reading material though has been the Pull My Finger Wiki for Malifaux. I have been spending about a hour a night on average simply following one link to the next to see what they have for each model. There is just an amazing amount of information there already and continues to grow. I really like the fact that they found a way to have all of this information without actually posting rules and statistics that could be seen as copyright infringement.
Anyways, after reading several areas throughout the Arcanists and Tina's pages I decided to order an Essence of Power to increase the efficiency of her spells. I also ordered my first Silent One (probably with another or two in the near future) to give Tina some decent to use her Ice Mirror with. Lastly, I ordered the Snow Storm model to increase mobility threats. Not to mention I think it is a gorgeous looking model.
The only downfall I have for any of these models is the fact that the Snow Storm is a large resin sculpt and from what I have seen of it out of the box already it is going to need a lot of clean up and prep work before it gets painted. There is quite a lot of flash present that needs removed carefully due to the amount of detail in the models fur.
All in all I think these models will be great additions to my Rasputina crews. I also finished my first winter themed base on a different model so I feel more comfortable doing all of these with the same technique.
