Over time, repeated exposure to the Hungering Darkness’ brilliance begins to build up a residue of energy in a person’s body. It permeates their being, saturating them on a both physical and spiritual level. As the saturation builds, it takes more for the Darkness to impart the euphoric effects of the brilliance on its victims, rapidly accelerating the saturation. Some of these individuals are able to manifest the saturation as an extension of their will, their eyes and breath glowing with power…
– Illuminated, Storm of Shadows
After a long time of not having any energy to spend on the Illuminated of Jacob Lynch, I finally “manned up” and painted one. Back in the old edition of Malifaux, I never really felt the need for them, but with the dawn of the new edition, I really can’t shake the feeling that I might make use of at least one. Most likely I should paint up a second, but that’ll have to wait.
In order to spice this model up a bit, I placed him on a small poker table. Out of green stuff I “sculpted” (I say “sculpted”, because it basically involved mashing a piece flat and making a sausage) some poker markers and cards. The story of the model is that someone tried to cheat him, which makes him flip and jump up on the table going all Prototype and stuff. Because only Lynch is allowed to cheat.
The model didn’t take that long to build, but I did spend the time to try some glazing and blending, mostly on the fellers pants. Turned out OK in the end.
Either puking, or really, really upset.
Probably just upset.
