If there were no bad people, there would be no good lawyers

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

…As Guild Lawyers graduate from wrangling mundane proceedings, they begin to notice that what they used to only accomplish symbolically – shredding testimonies, redefining meanings, challenging and remaking the facts themselves – is spilling out of the courtroom and into their lives. With gleeful sophistry and only a little surgically applied willpower they can redefine the reality going on around them, and impose their definition over what was there before. For what’s reality but a pattern, what’s a law but a pattern to define and control other patterns, what’s a lawyer but something that defines and controls the law?..

– Malifaux  2E, Crossroads

Best flufftext ever.

First two models finished since the birth of my second son, four months ago. As far as four months can be considered a quick paintjob, they’ve been a quick paintjob. Lawyers are some seriously cool models and it feels good finally finishing them.

The first one is lecturing someone about some possible interpretation of the law and the second one is unreasonably happy because someone spilled his wine, which means lawsuit!

 

Preparing for LinCon and Malifaux tourney in about a month, so hopefully more stuff will pop in a bit more regularly.

    Nice painting. The purple suits them well. How do you find Guild Lawyers on the tabletop? Have you ever felt the need to put both in a crew?

      Thanks. So far I’ve only used one at a time but on the paper they look solid enough to warrant two sometime, at least with lucius. Dunno if they’d fit with any other master though…
