May brings a new set of fantastic miniatures to the world of Malifaux which just continues to grow. There seems to be a theme of wild transformation about this coming month too from Wyrd so let’s dive in.
Leading the way we have these rather epic looking individuals from The Mercy Of Death. One of the things I love about Malifaux is how they blend the Fantasy with the Steampunk and it’s always great to see loads of blades, shields, and awesome melee options.
You have to love anything that says it has corpse candles too right? If you want to expand on this collection then you can also get more Shieldbearers (or at them to a different gang).
Once again, an awesome look and style to these miniatures. It would have been cool if they had a slightly different design to them I feel to set them apart from the ones in the box but maybe you could fix it with some head-swaps or alternative colour schemes.
Now we turn to the wild and the hairy with the likes of the Rougarou coming to Malifaux.
Based on the theme of a Werewolf this is a beast, or set of beasts, that roam the Deep South of America. Cajun folklore believed that they would hunt down and kill Catholics! In Malifaux it looks like they’ve gone down the route of making them a little more bestial but it still ties them into the Bayou-style feel of Malifaux.
These fellows however really have turned. Meet the Swine-Cursed!
Now those are some awesome looking bruisers to add into the mix for your Gremlin gangs on the tabletop. Werepig might not be quite as dangerous-sounding as a Werewolf but they look like they’d rip you up all the same.
What do you think of what May has to offer?
