  1. Homefront: Georgia

    Welcome to Homefront: Georgia! This will be a low-commitment league running parallel with Wyrd's global Homefront campaign. What does that mean? It means, by joining the league you will play games of Malifaux and report them to Wyrd as normal per the Homefront campaign rules, but you will also be eligible for some fantastic awards at the end! Further, you will report your games to me as well and I will keep statistics regarding Georgia’s contributions to the campaign so we can see how we stack up to the overall results. Exciting!To participate in the league all you need to do is inform me that you wish to participate and play games of Malfaux. That's it. No entry fee required, no minimum number of games to play, and you may join at any time. Games do not need to be played at any specific venue, although Giga-Bites is a prime location for obvious reasons. Also, for any players participating in TFL, feel free to play those games as part of this league as well! Two birds with one stone! Note: when playing a TFL game you cannot opt to use the 'special scheme' for the 2 week block - see below. Remember, all games must conform to Wyrd’s campaign rules (aka, 5 games max per 2 week block, etc.) and both players must be participating in the league in order for games to count towards league scores. Other than that, have fun and defend the Homefront! Awards: League Champion – Most games won throughout the league. World Traveler – Most games played during the league, win or lose. The Gentleman – Most favorite player votes. Group Photo – Best painted crew at the end of the league (more details to come). Wetworker – Most special schemes achieved during the league. Favorite Player Votes: At the end of every 2 week block each league participant can submit to me their vote for their favorite opponent during the block. The player with the most votes at the end of the league will be awarded The Gentleman award. Players may potentially receive multiple votes over the course of the league (1 per 2 week block, maximum 5 in total), so make sure to be pleasant and be a good sport! Special Schemes: At the beginning of each 2 week block I will select a Scheme from the GG2017 Schemes that will be the “Special Scheme" during the block. This Scheme will be available in the Scheme pools for all league games during the block on top of any other Schemes generated. If completed (aka max points are scored from the Scheme) you will earn a Wetworker point. The player with the most Wetworker points at the end of the league will earn the Wetworker award. Visit the Georgia Malifaux Facebook page for additional information or to schedule games. Games for the league can be played at Giga-Bites Gaming Cafe on Wednesday during regular Malifaux open play.

  10. Welcome to The Other Side!

    My wallet aches in anticipation! It's going to be difficult to pick between these factions and I think the models themselves will have to be the deciding factor. I am also a little surprised that the Three Kingdoms did not make an initial showing, but that gives you guys a solid contender for inevitable expansion down the road. 4 is a solid number of factions to start. Super excited for the Kickstarter launch!

  12. Once upon a time... in a city called Malifaux... bad things happened! "Twisted Tales" is a Rapid Growth League wherein players can come together to enjoy the hobby and game that is Malifaux. The League will focus on exposing new players to the game and, for veteran players, adds a fun twist to a conventional escalation league by utilizing Malifaux's Story Encounter system. Winning the League will be less about defeating your opponents and more about exploring all Malifaux has to offer through an achievement point system. The League will begin on October 17, 2016 and run for 6 weeks, culminating with awards and a painting contest on November 28, 2016! Games shall be played at Tier 1 Cards and Games, located at 1921 W. Dimond Blvd., #B3, Anchorage, AK 99515 Additional information and the League Rules Packet is available on the Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1577085125932630/

  14. Dual-faction master - your wishlist

    I'd also like to see an arcanist/outcast master. Frankly Raspy and Marcus both already have that 'on their own' vibe and don't fit as well within the M&SU running theme. When ME2 launched and I saw all the dual faction crews I was rather disappointed arcanists didn't get one (Mei Feng doesn't count as everyone got a TT dual crew). I could very well see one of them turned duel in the future or have another self-contained arcanist come to the fore, benefiting from the protections the arcanists can bring against the Guild while pursuing their own agenda. Or even something as simple as merc spellcasters! That'd be fun!
  15. Crutch Models - Are they Real??

    I can't agree with Vorschlag's assessment enough - I think the "What is a crutch?" question should be based on the individual player and what they are comfortable with, rather than specific models the vocal minority (or majority in some cases) believe them to be. There are some podcasts I listen to where someone will say "You HAVE to take X model, because they are soooo amazing, blah blah blah." and my first reaction is usually "No I don't." But I'm also one of those weird players that attempts to build crews based on overall aesthetics/theme, very much limiting my options in competitive play. Funny thing is, at least on the local level, I get by just fine. Back on topic though, I do have my personal "crutches" I am ashamed (or not) to admit. First one that comes to mind is Johan whenever I run a M&SU crew. It's not even a question - he just goes in the list. Regardless of the scheme pool he will always find something to do, and he's such a bargain for what e does even with the merc tax. Specifically with Marcus, it comes at no surprise that Myranda is an auto take. Wherein there are other beasts to can subbed in for various roles like scheme running or heavy hitting, there is literally nothing available that comes close to the utility and synergy Myranda brings to a beast list.
