Zoraida Avatar painted by Hotdrop Studios

Photo by Hotdrop Studios

So, I took one look at the assembly on the old Wyrd Miniatures Zoraida Avatar for Malifaux, and had a whole world of "nope" about it.

I'd been seeing a whole bunch of work come across my twitter feed from Hotdrop Studios (feeds here and here), so decided to hire them to do it.

I am reassured I made the right choice. Firstly, from the description the painter gave of how horrible the assembly was, and secondly from the amazing paint job I got back.

The painting Hotdrop Studios does at this level of quality is quite expensive, but I think it's a fair price for what you get! Good communication and well packed miniature, another definite recommendation.


  1. Yeaaaaaaaaaaah.

    In the past I have looked at minis and thought "Even if the price for this is a bit on the steep side, it'll be worth it." And it's been worth it every time.

    Nice looking mini, btw.

    1. Its really nice. I'm not even sure the photo does her justice! There's tons of detail, like a pool of brackish water, voodoo dolls placed under the tree, and the snake wrapped around her legs.

      Not doing the assembly alone was worth it. The epic paint job I got back made it worth every penny...
