The Sanctified Church of the Temporary Mortal Condition.

After painting nothing but furry things the last few minis, I thought I'd move onto something without hair...

The Condition, Work in Progress
 In the Monster Hunter International World, cultists can be just as dangerous as the monsters themselves.

In MHI: Vendetta, the second book in the series, we are introduced to the 'main' cult of doom, The Sanctified Church of the Temporary Mortal Condition, better known as The Condition.  They are described as a devious and brutal cult,  one that actually uses magic quite effectively.  The Condition are well funded, well trained, and actively working for the return of the Great Old Ones.

As there seem to be plenty of sects of this cult, I thought I'd try a few of my own.  I've actually had these in the works for some time, but only recently decided to adopt them into my MHI setting.

These cool little minis are from East Riding Miniatures, called the Slicks.  I really dig the oddness of them.  They are just a WiP so far.  If you look back at my Dec 2012 entry, you'll see the same tentacle pattern on the fishmen's cloaks.  I saw this design on a T-shirt and thought it would work great for any cultists I do.

Another miniature that I had in the works for years, is the Star Spawn from Reaper.   I don't think I ever posted any finished pics.  It's a beast to photograph well (as I struggle w/ photos anyhow).

Do these jeans make my butt look evil?
He was painted by just using tons and tons of light colored washes.  I like the pulpy almost plant like quality that gives.  It's time consuming, but kinda cool.

The condition are constantly scheming, infiltrating, and causing general havoc in the world, trying to find a way for ilk like this to enter our dimension.

Whisper sweet nothings to me

I'll post these guys up once I finish them, I think I need to do something with those buckles and maybe something better with those glasses.

Pretty cool, I think I might check that book series out.
