Most of the crew sticks around Lucius, to empower Mr. Graves and Doppelganger to beat face and cripple the opponent's ability to hit back, while Vogel runs schemes and eats other runners. Candy (and the Terracotta Warrior by shunting damage) keeps the main group healthy, and acts as a layer of protection for the Lucius command bubble with her control abilities. Doppelganger will just need to stick close to The Scribe for defense.
Terracotta Warrior and Mr. Tannen share the same slot now, but I think Terracotta Warrior has more utility for this build.
- Surprisingly Loyal (1)
- Deep Pockets (2)
The Scribe (2)
- Depression (1)
Mr. Graves (8)
- A Thousand Faces (1)
Ferdinand Vogel (8)
Terracotta Warrior (6)
Guild Lawyer (5)
Edit: Left out The Scribe
I'm excited about Vogel. So I'll need to pick him up, along with a box of Terracotta Warriors (as I'm getting bored of my proxy models). I'm also of the mind to rebase my primary crew with the new basing kits, or the like, give them a little more character.
It's a shame that Jury isn't NB Lucius friendly, I so love fees. I could run a Guild courtroom list, but it seems like Lady Justice would be a better Master for that.
This is my first "table for Malifaux" project. As it often happens, the first "pancake" was rather "lumpy". Mistakes in the choice of wooden planks led to a gaps and skewing of the frame; the putty did not want to hold on the foam blocks and too well stuck to the wooden "frame" of the table; etc.
I am going to add more boats (with sails or without) and provide some ladders.
Here are several foto of the first playtest:

The tower have been upgraded:
For the first time in Russia, in Moscow there was a International Tabletop Day! Thanks to Aleksey Zuykov (the biggest boardgames Youtuber in former USSR), who organized a celebration of 5 years of his channel and registered that event through the ITD! The event was in Geek Wars (Paveletskaya), and of course we can't miss the opportunity to acquaint people with the world of Malifaux There was 200-300 guest through the all day, and more than 30 people (actually I lost count as there was a LOT of people) who were interested in Malifaux, asked questions, listened to my stories about lore, played demo with me and my assistants and of course bought some Malifaux! Our community is growing! All hail the Guild!
My favourine picture, with me and enthusiastic girl, I call it: "This is how people react to Malifaux!"
My painted miniatures on parade

*This is just a fun "in-character" ledger detailing the acquisition of my Amalgamation Charter Enforcement crew.
March 2rd: Construction started on our "Brutal Emissary" after the required materials arrived from the various 3rd party manufacturing companies used to obscure the project's existance. Reviewed and modified the project plans to ensure the most efficient end product. The excess material will be put aside for future projects.
March 4th: Our department funds for this month finally arrived. Repairs for our small unit of constructs, and my steam-harness, may now commence.
March 5th: Lucius sent word that Ryle's "responsibilities" to the Guild had been fulfilled for the time being, and that he would be returned within the week. Not too much worse for the wear I hope.
March 2rd: Received word from an M&SU associate that the survivor of another mine collapse in the northern hills requires extensive prosthesis, and is willing to work for ACE in exchange for access to our maintenance facilities and proprietary augmentations. Marcus, an associate of Victor's, will ensure her safe passage to the city if we supply him with a pack of the Guild's pure-bred hounds. I have already submitted the requisition order. @H4ml3t
March 5th: The department's efficiency is top notch, but there are a few menial things that keep needing to be done. To solve this, I spoke to the local M&SU leader and politely implied my need for a Mobile Toolkit for the department. The man said it wouldn't take long for one to arrive at my office.
March 6th: Miss Step was escorted into the department this afternoon. The M&SU engineers did there best with what was on hand, but she requires extensive augmentation to offer any assistance. Ramos intercepted her before Marcus brought her down from the foothills, and entrusted her with a copy of his Steamborg blueprints. A nice gesture, it won't be unappreciated.
I have a great affection toward alternate history, and the effects of advanced technology on cultures from various eras. For a time I was deep into Steampunk, on speaking terms with various influential figures and such. Aside from my infatuation with Coppelius, this was the reason my first Master was C. Hoffman. And partially why I'm returning to him.
No matter what alternative era you find yourself in, it seems that the resulting technological anachronisms exist ubiquitiously. Malifaux may be a few more years from Deiselpunk, but many of its aesthetics (and of other eras too) have already seeped into the setting. Certainly, you can handwave robots as complex magical golems, but much of their supposed internal mechanisms are too small for even magically assisted analog circuits. This indicates a level of knowledge over a hundred years before its time, thanks to the Malifaux equivalent of future-tech high-yield batteries, riding the line of Magitech powered Cyberpunk. The Guild even counts as a Megacorp precursor.
Of course, all of these considerations flavor my approach to building my new Hoffman collection.
