  1. Happy Friday Wyrdos! I had a lot of trouble pinning down exactly what model this preview was, but I finally figured it out. It's a Morphling! It was tough to decide with all that morphing around. Let's take a look. All Gibbering Hordes have the ability to change their physiology to some extent, but Morphlings have far greater control over their bodies than most. Similar to Neverborn Dopplegangers, these brutal creatures frequently exploit their talents to become the alpha hunters of their pods. A Morphling's only real shortcoming is the inability to adjust its body mass, which limits the number of things it can reasonably change into. On the table, Morphlings are an excellent addition to almost any Squad. They can perform Actions printed on any friendly Squad in play, which grants their unit a bit of additional (and unexpected) flexibility.
  2. Happy Monday! We continue with a look at some mysterious upcoming projects. Now speculate away on what monkey-business this model might get up to!

  4. Happy Friday Wyrdos! We have a pretty awesome preview of the Rail Gunner. This model definitely shoots for the moon, and with the size of that gun it probably will hit it too! Enjoy this preview. Although not yet in widespread circulation, Abyssinian weapons technology has created relatively small scale rail guns usable on the battlefield. These weapons require an incredibly strong source of power, and as such, must be deployed with a Soulstone-amplified power source. Most Rail Gunners are recruited out of the Mechanized Infantry, drawing upon those with the best accuracy. On the tabletop, the Rail Gunner gets one powerful, long range shot per Turn. Taking advantage of Extra Power to get a Gunner into Glory can lead to a particularly potent shot. Target priority is the key for a Rail Gunner, as it can be very effective against certain targets, but may be overkill or ineffective against others. What are you most excited to blow off the table with the Rail Gunner?

    Friday Preview - Rail Gunner

    I think it tells a nice story. Whereas Charles' gun needs the added accuracy that a tripod provides, the concern with this beast is the power drain (external battery thingy) and kickback (mechanical claw supports)

    Friday Preview - Rail Gunner

    If you look the gunner also has mechanical supports behind her supporting her. Lots of cool little things in the model that makes it more grounded!
  7. Another Monday here at Wyrd means another Monday preview! This time we are taking a look at some new art for Yan-Lo. If you aren't familiar with this master, here is a bit of background on him! Much of Yan Lo's history is lost to him. Many years ago, he was cursed for committing a terrible crime, cast out from the world of the living and forced to wander the paths of the spirit world in a confused fugue. He would be there still, were it not for his niece, Chiaki. For years, Chiaki's parents told her the legend of her ancestor, a fearsome sorcerer who had been cursed to a wretched existence trapped halfway between life and death. When Chiaki came to Malifaux, she slowly reached out to her ancestor's spirit, cultivating the thin, flickering essence of her ancestor that still burned within the heart of the wretched spirit he had become. Gradually, she was able to rekindle that spark into a burning flame and restore her ancestor's mind. In the years since his return to sanity, Yan Lo has served the Ten Thunders as their spy within the Resurrectionist organization. Those who are aware of his identity treat the old man with great care and respect, for they have seen first hand how ruthlessly Yan Lo harvests the souls of those who disrespect him. Ripped from whatever afterlife might have awaited them, these souls of these fools become little more than fuel for the ancient sorcerer's dark magics. In the dark alleys of the Little Kingdom, Yan Lo is served by the Gokudo, a cult of thugs who believe they serve the mysterious Wei Lu, one of Yan Lo's false identities. Membership in the Gokudo is by invitation only, for all of them are the descendants of those who swore fealty to Yan Lo many centuries earlier. Upon reinforcing this bond with their own oaths, these unfortunate men and women become utterly subservient to the immortal sorcerer's wishes, both in this life and the next. With the assistance of these enslaved servants, Yan Lo was able to help the Ten Thunders bring an end to the rule of Governor-General Herbert Kitchener. In exchange for his service, the Oyabun of the Ten Thunders told Yan Lo of the beast that had cursed him: the oni known as Lingxuzi. Yan Lo's own investigations confirmed the Oyabun's story, and now, the undying sorcerer seeks to find this oni in order to learn more of his past... and to punish it for the centuries of torment it had inflicted upon him. Discuss away!

    Volunteers Wanted - Origins

    Still need some volunteers for origins!
  10. Happy Monday Wyrdos! Today was a bit of an odd one. I wandered into the office and found an envelope on my desk. No markings on it. I discovered these guys in that envelope. Unsure of what it might mean, I figured I would leave it to the community to help me figure out. What do you think these are? Speculate away!
  11. Happy Friday Wyrdos! For today's preview we are bringing you one of the more....grotesque of the Cult's forces. These portals are a very potent force in what they allow your army to do. Take a look! The most insidious byproduct of the Burning Man’s presence may not be the cult that sprang up around it but rather the ease in which new portals are created. While most portals lead through to Malifaux, some don’t make it quite far enough. They connect to somewhere in between, a place of chaos and magic. Many of these portals slowly transform from a gateway into a sentient creature, an abomination of magic fueled by the space between spaces. These Stalking Portals seem to have some sort of odd intelligence and provide great support to the cultists that worship the Burning Man. On the table, Stalking Portals are iconic Cult support pieces. The ability to function as moving teleporters allows them to ensure that their forces get where they need to be as quickly as possible. They're also quite good at stripping Reinforcement Tokens away from enemy units. I now brace myself for the endless deluge of puns.

  13. Happy Monday Wyrdos! We are taking a look at the other part of the Gremlins in the Backdraft Encounter box with Popcorn Turner and Cooper Jones. Take a peek! Popcorn Turner and his assistant, Cooper Jones, are prominent brewers in the southern Bayou. Popcorn brings the potent Induction ability into the Gremlin faction, increasing the damage that nearby enemies suffer from Poison by +2. Better yet, he protects friendly models from suffering Poison damage, making all of those Tri-Chi models that gain Poison while healing themselves all the more effective at staying on the table. As if Popcorn weren't borrowing enough from McMourning's playbook, he can also force models to immediately suffer damage equal to their Poison Condition, up to a maximum of five damage. When combined with the ability to light enemy models on fire and discard scheme markers to self-heal, this makes Popcorn Turner a very potent ally for the Brewmaster. Cooper Jones, meanwhile, is capable of putting a good deal of Poison onto enemies, which supports her boss quite well. Her obsession with barrels allows her to break down scheme markers to heal nearby Constructs, or she can just hide inside of a barrel to increase her Armor. Better yet, if she gets a few drinks into her, she can turn scheme markers into Whiskey Gamin... without spending a single Action. Plus, just look at that awesome blowtorch! This dynamic duo is sure to be a hit at parties, firework conventions, and in just about any Gremlin crew that enjoys a few good drinks.
  14. Happy Monday Wyrdos! Last week we finished looking at the Undying. Now it's time to start looking into another upcoming story encounter box, Backdraft! We are starting by looking at some of the Gremlin models. To start with we have the Whiskey Gamin! Let's learn a little about these adorable, delicious little barrels. Unlike elemental Gamin, which are summoned by powerful magic spells and rituals, Whiskey Gamin are created by enterprising Gremlin artificers to carry their moonshine from one place to another. After the first few Whiskey Gamin disappeared into the swamp, the Gremlins started replacing their feet with wheels in order to make it more difficult for the little machines to run off with all their alcohol. When this made the Whiskey Gamin too cumbersome to escape predators (most notably, other Gremlins that wanted the moonshine they carried), the engineers replaced their arms with pump nozzles, allowing the Gamin to spray their attackers with the high proof (and very flammable) moonshine they carried. This is Gremlin engineering at its finest, folks. On the table, Whiskey Gamin are fast models that spread around (Alcohol) Poison(ing) and light inebriated models on fire. Like true Gamin, they explode when they are killed, showering everyone around them with moonshine.
  15. I'm not even sure if that is another burning man pun or not....this is what I have been driven to.
  16. You can't see it. But my eyes are rolling.
  17. Hey Wyrdos! It's Monday and that means more previews!! This week we are bringing you the other half of the Undying encounter box. This week we are taking a look at Minako Rei and her Katashiro! Last week we looked at Manos and the Mourners. This week we look at Minako Rei and the Katashiro, the other side of the Undying box. Minako Rei is the last surviving member of the Order of Balance, whose job it was to hunt down the corrupted sorcerers who used their magics to feed on the souls of peasants, using the energy to extend their lives. After her Order was wiped out by the traitor, Manos, she became single-minded in her pursuit of the Jiangshi and the evil Manos. On the table, Minako Rei is a force to be reckoned with. She is able to use kharma to seal another's fate, causing an enemy to suffer any damage that Minako herself suffered. Perhaps most notably, Minako is able to create the Katashiro that she uses to aid her in her mission. The Katashiro are paper creations brought to life with magic. They are able to attack immediately upon being summoned or placed, and they are able to turn into origami cranes to place themselves in new locations. As constructs and Oni, they can find a home in many Ten Thunders crews. These three models join forces with the Wanyudo, a moving, flaming wheel in order to hunt down Manos and bring balance at last.
  18. Email confirmation is always a good sign!
  19. Happy Friday Wyrdos! Enjoy this Friday preview, as it's probably the only time you'll see the Sharpshooter before he sees you! This adjunct for the King's Empire has lots of cool stuff going on. Take a look. Many units in the King's Empire have begun bringing a specialist into battle: a Sharpshooter. Equipped with long rifles, these Sharpshooters can often aid their unit in myriad ways. Most commonly, these skilled shooters serve as inspiration for the rest of their unit to go above and beyond for King and country. On the tabletop, Sharpshooters improve their unit's accuracy and gain an extra Action, making them a solid addition to any King's Empire infantry unit.
  20. I can confirm I have received yours.
