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!

  2. [Poland] Demo games in Kraków

    October update.
  3. I'd like to invite everyone to Protect Our Holdings - 50 ss fixed faction Malifaux tournament in Krakow, Poland. It will take place on Saturday, September 23rd in MDK on Grunwaldzka 5 in Krakow. The first game will start at 10:15 AM. We will use GG17 rules. You can find all the details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/137159586895117/
  4. August 15th - App

    I like the general direction it is taking. Regarding the layout, if you need to tap each ability to display its description, I hope the app will be really well-optimized. Also, the order of factions seems to be odd, I'd expect either the same order as in books or alphabetical one, but maybe that is due to it still being in the works. I LOVE the idea of having separate lists of owned, painted and favorite models, I assume you can use those as filters during selection. Will we be able to save not just crews, but also encounters? I would love the possibility to have the encounter prepared for each game before a tournament. I guess the general layout could still use improvement. Certain elements feel way too large (e.g. headings like "Deployment", "Strategy" and such), and I counted at least 4 different fonts used in those screenshots - but I guess this will all be polished at a later stage of development.
  5. Widow Weaver targets a model with Butterfly Jump ability (e.g. Shenlong with Yin upgrade) with the "Seize Prey" Attack Action. Target discards a card and pushes and remains within the range of the action, but is over 3" from the web markers. Seize prey states "Target a model with 2 or more friendly Web Markers within 3" of it." Butterfly Jump states "After this model is successfully targeted with a non- enemy Attack Action, it may discard a card to push up to 3" in any direction. Range, LoS and cover are drawn from this new position and, if it is no longer a legal target, the Action immediately fails." So, on one hand, the Butterfly Jump says you only measure range, LoS and cover from new position (not other additional requirements from targeting), on the other it states if the target is no longer a legal one, the Action fails. Should we consider other requirements for the action being legal than range and LoS in this case?
  6. I'd like to invite everyone to Wild Magic - 50 ss Malifaux tournament in Krakow, Poland. It will take place on Saturday, August 26th in Vanaheim store on Lubicz 34/6 in Krakow. The first game will start at 10:35 AM. The event will follow our own, unusual set of rules called "Random Faction" (and will not count for Polish Rankings). The general idea is that every player brings 2 full box crews from one faction (with certain boxes being banned because they don't provide enough soulstones) and then each player randomly draws such a set from a different faction than their declared faction and makes a list using models in that set. The purpose is to make everyone play something they are not used to. If you want to know about the details, PM me. Full tournament info (in Polish): https://www.facebook.com/events/1889027114754838/
  7. July 2017 Errata

    It can get an 8" push and nimble, and potentially additional to attack flips within 6" from McCabe thanks to Promises upgrade. Also, McCabe can recruit guild hounds thanks to his Infiltration and reactivate some minion, allowing him to up the activation count significantly compared to other TT masters.
  8. mccabe and his minions

    A single Torakage or Warden are great users for the Glowing Saber. Torakage can use his to attack and damage when there are no friendly model within 3". Saber with for damage can be really scary, and with Wk 6 and potentially Reactivate/Nimble from McCabe those guys become quick and efficient beaters (but they are mostly one-shot, once they kill something important, the opponent will focus on them and kill them quickly, so make sure they end up their activation within 10" from McCabe). WWardens get additional ram when attacking models that have already activated, boosting the low damage on the saber to 3. They are a bit slower then Torakage and less likely to get a moderate or severe, but they are also a bit more sturdy.
  9. I am terribly sorry guys, but due to some unexpected financial difficulties I won't be able to attend
  10. Torakage Effectiveness

    As @thatlatinspeakingguy has noted before, Torakage works wonders with McCabe and the sabre, that +/+ for Ml actions is incredible, especially if they also get Reactivate. I've had them score Quick Murder or kill A&D and Ashen Core on the first turn (I don't care if they die afterwards, provided it is within McCabe's 10" bubble). With other masters, they are indeed mediocre - not terrible, but they die way too easy and there are definitely better choices available.

  14. Black Sheep - McCabe

    Oh, you've put badge of speed there twice (both on McCabe and emissary) in your example. This confused me a little. If you do take the saber, then the point about triggers makes sense. I'm curious how it will perform, can't wait to read your thoughts after a few games!
