    [Chile] Never Trust Pandora: a Malifaux League

    We are finally ready for the final! Pablo J. with his Guild will be opposed to David H. with his outcast. Should the best win!
  2. Hello Next week, we will start a Malifaux League that will be played at the store wargaming.cl. The address is Francisco Bilboa 3771, local 8. It is very close to the subway "Bilboa". Malifaux days are Mondays at the store, but the store is open from Monday to Saturday from 12:00 to 22:00, giving us plenty of time to organize encounters between the players in case some cant make it on Monday. The event should last about 5 weeks. Please contact me if you are interested in participating or please comment (in Spanish) on our Facebook page, where you'll also find more details about the League: https://www.facebook.com/groups/101914340173903/

    Never trust Pandora: A Malifaux League

    Here are pictures of a Malifaux league held in Santiago de Chile in April-May-June 2018. Games took place at the store of wargaming.cl (https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=276460066185352&ref=br_rs)
  4. Hello, Here is the thread for June of the monthly painting challenge. Please post your pictures, plans and discussions for the month here. I'm also copy-pasting a reminder of the rules and the principles of the challenge: The idea of the challenge is a motivational one. It is simply a friendly painting community---not a competition---that we use to find motivation to finish painting our Malifaux miniatures. You pledge an amount of soulstones that you will be painting each month of the year 2018. If you want to enroll for the challenge, it's too late because you would use too many mulligans. I'll use the following spreadsheet to keep track of each one's situation: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1zYYugrSGk_4GTo8OjHjyfI_ruYWYOSnhy7U2ivbgfZ8/edit?usp=sharing Some specific rules: Models count for the month in which you finish them. Everyone may fail to make their monthly goal twice and stay in the challenge. You can choose to go down in the pledge hierarchy during the year, but you cannot move up. You may choose to sign up during a later month for the challenge but this means that you'll have to use one or two of the aforementioned mulligans: e.g. if you start in February, one mulligan will already been used; if you start in March, two mulligans will already been used; you cant start in April. Masters count for 15 soulstones Zero cost models count for 5 soulstones Terrain count too. Terrain must be painted and is treated like zero cost models (i.e. count for 5 soulstones). The piece of terrain must be significantly largert than a 50mm marker.

    Monthly painting challenge - June

    Hey. I've finished Sandeep Desai for 15ss, putting me at 24ss. Since I'm bad at taking pictures I decided to take several of them this time: I'm leaving for a business trip on Tuesday until the end of the month. It is very likely I wont be able to paint anything else this month. But who knows...

    Reva for a new Resser

    Anna seems more resistant though: def 6, armor, henchman, 1 more wound. She also has a better Ca, though I could see the argument that Sh5 with positive flips is better because it generates more card cycling and potentially draw more cards from your opponent (he will have to cheat more often without you having to cheat).

    Reva for a new Resser

    @thatlatinspeakingguy I guess Ana Lovelace---who he already owns---could play a similar role as Sue. What do you think? Anyway Ive kept telling @Wurz_7 he should acquire Sue for his outcast collection 😀

    Last list you played: arcanists

    Hello I'm totally stealing the idea of other factions' threads here and simply ask you to post the lists you've been playing lately. I hope we can learn from others like this. Last time, I played against outcasts the following encounter: Headhunter, close deployment, eliminate the leadership, search the ruins, take prisonner, recover evidence, hold up their forces My list was: Declared Faction: Arcanists Crew Name: round 3 - ironsides 50ss Leader: Ironsides - Cache:(5) Warding Runes 1ss Veteran Fighter 1ss Iron Determination 1ss Amina Naidu 9ss Joss 10ss Warding Runes 1ss Oxfordian Mage 6ss Blood Ward 0ss Temporary Shielding 0ss Oxfordian Mage 6ss Doom Ward 0ss Temporary Shielding 0ss Oxfordian Mage 6ss Nemesis Ward 0ss Temporary Shielding 0ss Union Steamfitter 6ss Large Arachnid 6ss My opponent had a von schill list. I took search the ruins and take prisonner on Hannah. I followed the advice of @retnab and took iron determination because of eliminate the leadership. Unfortunately my opponent did not take this scheme and complitely ignored ironsides. I'll have to try again this build in the future. I took the large arachnid because of search the ruins in the pool. It was an easy win for me because the opponent is still new to the game. Joss was amazing that game. Strongarm died easily and, thanks to regen and amina, he came back above hard to kill something like 4 times. Would you have modified this list? What was the last list you played?

    Last list you played: arcanists

    Of course and more than once. The TN number is not crazy high. I also was willing to cheat the duels. In the end, I didnt need that many spiders to play the game. The table was the typical circus style wyrd table, certainly helpful. I could easily block a "corridor" with the markers.

    (Argentina) Tournament at Buenos Aires on June

    A great tournament. I had a lots of fun!

    Last list you played: arcanists

    Today I went to a tournament organized by @aquenaton. I had a great time there. A lots of fun and the opportunity to meet the Argentinian Malifaux community. Round 1 was quite interesting in terms of the involved strategy and schemes. They were the following: Ply for information, Close deployment, Surround them, Show of force, Hold up their forces, Take one for the team, Public Demonstration This pool made me think quite long---quite a tricky puzzle for me. In the end, I took a risky bet and decided to go for the following list. The bet was "everybody plays fixed lists and, as a consequence, nobody chooses Public demo": Ramos, with Vox Populi, Arcane Reservoir, Field generator, 5 ss Malifaux child Captain, with Patron Blessing, Powered by flame Amina Naidu, with Warding runes, Bleeding Edge Tech Lazarus Union Stramfitter The idea was to deny Take one for the team with strike markers and burning, while Amina and Ramos would make the enemies peon. I have to thank @retnab for the precious advice he gives in this forum. I took Show of force and Hold up their forces. I was lucky the game went well for me, but which list would have taken in this pool?
  16. Hello, I'm leaving for a trip so here is already the thread for May of the monthly painting challenge. Please post your pictures, plans and discussions for the month here.

In the MIDDLE of the month: post work in progress photos if you want, or just banter about ideas. At the END of the month: post your finished models and the Soul Stone Cost painted, and I will get this on the tracking sheet. Post this by the end of the month. And include the total soul stones painted. Models count for the month in which you finish them. Everyone may fail to make their monthly goal twice and stay in the challenge.
