We're currently updating the site and a few things may run slow or not as expected at the moment. Give us a day or two to get everything sorted out and changed up if you would.

One of the new things you'll see about are the 'sticky notes' which you will occasionally see from the site Admins if something important shows up or is newsworthy, or if you happen to be in one of our many beta testing groups giving you an additional heads up when something new needs to be looked at or sorted.

You can send these amongst yourselves as well if you wish, just don't abuse it. 

Thanks for your patience!

  1. Hollow Waif Anchors

    It's been a while since I've played Levy, but here's my usual thoughts on Anchors: You want three Anchors, every time. You can add more, but I usually assume that my Levy Crew will be split in three. One should be a sniper who hangs out toward the back and is really stable so you never run out of Anchors. I often use Lazarus or Ryle for this one. For this you want durability and a ranged attack. One should be fast and durable, able to get up and hold territory. I generally rely on Ashes and Dust here. But I generally rely on Ashes and Dust a lot when I'm playing Leveticus. Sometimes I'll use Valedictorian instead. The last doesn't have to be as durable or powerful, but should be fast and good at board control. Sometimes I'll use a Dead Doxy for this (and pair her with a Rotten Belle to zip Leveticus up the board fast turn one.) Sometimes I'll use a Soulstone Miner so it can just appear where I need it upfield. Sometimes I'll go nuts and make it Bete Noire or a Hodgepodge Emissary or Mechanical Rider. Something manueverable that can pack a punch and do some useful board tricks. That's about what I do! Hope this is helpful!
  2. Somer + Aionus pretty good?

    Yeah! I have won a tournament or two with a similar list. Aionus speeds up nearby Gremlins in the first rounds as he rolls up with them toward the middle. He can also speed up Merris, who can then get a ridiculous 4AP + (0) action and do tricks like drop a scheme marker, move, drop a scheme marker, move, drop a scheme marker. Here's the Crew I typically use: Somer + Family Tree, Can of Beans, Encouragement. Ainous. Merris + Show Off. Skeeters x 2. Lightning Bug (for healing). Bayou Gremlins x 5.

  4. Pull My Finger -- Skyrocketing Rates!

    I sure hope so! I know I've been feeling kind of unhappy with the site being not up-to-date, and I'm glad to be moving it.
  5. Pull My Finger -- Skyrocketing Rates!

    You'll need to request edit access to do so, but once you do, yes.
  6. Pull My Finger -- Skyrocketing Rates!

    Great question! So, the answer is, I've started a new site for PMF (one Google Sites) and I've been porting stuff over, but I haven't announced it yet. The import process is all by hand, which is annoying. You should be able to edit the Wikispaces site if you are logged in. New announcement on this coming up in the next few days - sorry for the delay!
  7. How They Get You, A Malifaux Podcast

    Okay, I tried to set this up. I really did. It looks like I cannot add the podcast to iTunes without installing iTunes on my laptop, and my laptop is Ubuntu, which doesn't run iTunes. I'll try to figure out a workaround or try from a different machine or something, but right now I still can't do this. Sorry!
  8. How They Get You, A Malifaux Podcast

    Another new episode of How They Get You is now out! Sorry it took so long! Joshua MacAran explains how his horrible Seamus Crew shut me down so thoroughly. Thanks Joshua! https://howtheygetyou.podbean.com/e/episode-6-seamus-shoots-your-favorite-model-in-the-head/
  9. Hateful Darkblack Parker Tutorial

    Thanks! Glad you've been enjoying the videos in general. I don't plan to rerecord this one, but I'll add your suggestions in the Notes! Mind if I credit you?
  10. Hateful Darkblack Parker Tutorial

    Just recorded last night a tutorial introduction to Parker Barrows: Hateful Darkblack's Intro to Parker Hope this is helpful!
  11. Parker Tactics

    Here's a video tutorial I just recorded for Parker:
  12. Sybelle, Comply, and Terrifying

    Models only take Terrifying tests from enemy models. While under Comply, the model is friendly to its own Crew plus Sybelle. It will still have a Terrifying check from other models in Sybelle's Crew (so she can make something Walk up to Seamus and fail the check). Actions aren't considered resolved until all followups are also resolved, so the model still considers Sybelle friendly until after the ended-near-an-enemy check for Terrifying.
  13. Wokou Raiders

    I mostly use Wokou Raiders with Parker, since they're Bandits. In melee, they're nearly unkillable and often opponents don't even try. So get them in melee with an enemy and you're good. They have scheme marker tricks that synergize with the rest of the Crew (if they do their scheme marker trick near a Dead Outlaw and Parker, it's two pushes, a healing, a removed marker, and extra cards or soulstones all in one action). They have a ranged attack which is fine. But the main thing is, they hold territory against melee opponents like nobody's business.
  14. How They Get You, A Malifaux Podcast

    New episode of How They Get You is up! I interview Michael Hengl on how his Marcus crew beat my Somer crew at Crissy DuBois's wonderful Thanksgiving Tournament Fauxs-Giving! See the episode here: https://howtheygetyou.podbean.com/e/episode-5-marcus-jumps-around-smashing-your-thing
  15. Dead Rider- thoughts?

    High damage and the drag trigger is actually really AP-efficient. I've taken him a few times and he generally pulls his weight.
