Maltique’s Ties to Our World

Maltique’s Ties to Our World

A beautiful model whose pain reflects an earthly one

Maltique is a very special model that we have created in concert with one of our friends, Michelle, who we met at our very first Adepticon in 2018.

Michelle has been a very active member of the miniature painting community, regularly volunteering her time at many conventions and bringing much joy to everyone who knows her. Michelle has also been battling cancer for many years now and, late last year, she received the news that the cancer has spread to her brain.

Maltique the Auromancer is our way of saying thank you to Michelle for everything she has done for the community. Maltique has been designed to be reminiscent of someone going through the struggles of chemotherapy. She is both a celebration of Michelle’s life and an acknowledgment of her ongoing battle. She is also a symbol of strength in the midst of unimaginable pain.

Your purchase will help to fund Cancer Research 50% of the proceeds generated from the sale of this model (for all time) will be going to the BC Cancer Foundation.

We are very excited to contribute, with your help, to funding research that will benefit both current and future generations of hobbyists, gamers, and everyone else affected by this detrimental disease.

From Michelle

What does Maltique mean to me?

The opportunity to collaborate with Creature caster on this model has meant the world. A big part of my healing process has been about my community. I have made my diagnosis so public because I needed to share. Share my story, my experiences, my overall journey. If I have to go through this, I wanted someone to benefit. It’s not for no reason. Since my cancer moved from breast to brain, it has been hard. A terminal diagnosis is harder to share on an emotional level. This is where Creature Caster helped change my outlook.

Collaborating on Maltique has given me a unique chance to share again. That’s actually what’s in the name M + unique = Maltique! May her strength and fight continue on long after me!
