Cassandra is Colette’s henchmen (second tier character in Malifaux). Previously a rival, Cassandra now works with Colette. I painted her at pretty much the same time with the same colours. However, I went for a slightly different balance with warmer colours and harsher gradients. This sets her apart from Colette, but retains some commonality. Again, I’m happy with how she’s come out.


Regardless of where my current state originates from I’m super happy with how it is all going, and I need to note down the colours, or else I will forget. If they’re not noted below they are the same as Colette.

One thing I am quite pleased by is how different she looks to Colette. Even though the skin palette is identical they don’t just look like two copies of the same person. This may be down to differences in the sculpts, or it might be down to the subtle variations I tried to put into the painting (at this scale it is hard to see).

    • Thanks very much. I agree with you on the miniature’s quality. I really like Wyrd’s plastics; it’s actually what got me into Malifaux.
