The next Malifaux mini to be finished for my Marcus crew is Cojo. (And I must thank Chaos Beakie for this.) It was not too easy for me to start this project, as I am not quite a man of the monkey hype. I might have burned my monkey candle down when watching that baseball playing chimpanzee movie as a kid. Oh, mah-grot! It only got a 2.5 on imdb.com!!
While Chaos beakie might have been the inspiration for me, as the monkey of a man he is, the real carrot was that we both vowed to get some Malifaux painted by the end of last month. (He is not a monkey of a man, really, it was a joke. Ron Pearlman is.) And we then decided to extend the deadline a bit.
And now I have him all done, too big to stand tall in the cookie box where my Malifaux is kept, but standing tall still. Cojo, the only monkeyman I’ll never-ever paint (except I could maybe paint a Jokaero one day to as well).
I’m quite happy with the results. Especially with that while the mini is rather untextured I got a nice looking fur painted on it. Then again the skin tone is not quite what I had hoped for, but it was what came out of the flow. And after spending this much time with him I have become rather fond, and I look forward to seeing what he can do on the tabletop (especially in a Turf War – Rude sign language!).
As always, any comments are welcome!
