  1. We're back! This week we report back from our latest self-enforced tournament, Burst of the Worst. Based on a poll run by Huzzah Hobbies, this tournament got us to play Masters commonly considered to be the worst. Are they really so bad or have we found ways of making them work?
  2. Critical Twits Podcast - Our First Tournament

    Thank you! Hopefully we'll get a bit more painted for our follow-up at the end of the month and I can compliment the podcast with some pics and a little article on our website. Thanks for listening, we really appreciate it
  3. Hey all! After completely failing to make any local tournaments, we realised the only way to get some competitive Malifaux in was to host our own. Join us for a harrowing tale of green stuff accidents, overly-mayonnaised sandwiches, and how we learnt to stop messing about and embrace the timer.
  4. The Red Jokers: A Faux Show were kind enough to host myself and a fellow Critical Twit for a mega-episode of Malifaux discussion, including highlighting some of our favourite models, our differing approaches to tournament gaming, what would happen if we went Through The Breach, and more, including some awesome Malifaux-based challenges for each 'cast and which board games Malifaux fans should be playing.
  5. Hi all! Brian from the Critical Twits here. It's been a while but we've been hard at work, playing a tonne of Henchman Hardcore so we can bring you our verdict (and our crews!) for this quicky format. Any HH fans out there? Does anyone have any really nasty crews I could use to stop my losing streak?
  6. Condition kills - yes! Thank you, I'm gonna try and kill as much stuff with conditions as I can when this is about. You may be a literal game-saver!
  7. Framed for Murder is my Achilles heel! I always, always, always fall for it, really early on.
  8. Thank you so much for listening, glad you liked it! We're really excited about GG 2017, it's really renewed our love of the game. How are you finding it?
  9. Hi all, Brian from the Twits here. Our latest episode is all about our dabblings with the new GG2017 schemes and strategies, and our love of Crewfaux. We also topple our local undefeated Malifaux champ and ask UK listeners about any tournaments or anything that are coming up. So, anyone out there doing anything competitive in the UK any time soon?
  10. The Other Side Podcast Special

    Hello! I know there's a separate podcast thread but I'm not sure how often people will be checking there, or if we're going to get lost in the inevitable deluge, so thought I'd add this here - if it's unwanted, please feel free to hold this post's head under water until it stops kicking, and post its corpse back to me with a strongly-worded letter of admonishment. Now that's out the way, I just wanted to share our latest podcast with you - we're big fans of Malifaux (and talk about it every month) so we just had to check out The Other Side, and go through the Kickstarter campaign so far with a fine-tooth comb. You can watch the video below, or click here for a Soundcloud version (with download option). Let us know what you think!
  11. The Other Side Podcasts

    Hello! Brian from the Critical Twits here. We dedicated our monthly Malifaux episode to The Other Side this month. Joe and I go through the setting, the models, and the system in turn, and decide if we're going to back or not. You can listen here: Or you can click here to head to Soundcloud for audio-only and downloadable versions. We hope you enjoy and we'd love to hear what you think.
  12. Hi all, Brian from the Twits here. I've cross-posted this from the discussion forum because it might be of special interest to terrain builders/enthusiasts - our latest episode is all about the importance of terrain to a good game of Malifaux. Love to know what you think, or see anything awesome you've built/bought/carved from the bones of your enemies. Thanks!
  13. Hi all, Brian from the Twits here. Our latest episode focusses on the importance of terrain to a good game of Malifaux, from building your collection to creating a narrative while playing. As ever, all feedback is welcome, and I'm especially interested in seeing any awesome scenery you guys and girls have built/bought/summoned through diabolical means. Cheers!
  14. Hello all! Brian from the Critical Twits here. One thing I keep seeing come up time and time again in the Malifaux community is the question "How do I get started?" It's usually followed by "Which crew boxes should I get?" and "Should I get the starter box?" They're questions we've been battling with recently as we try to expand our local Malifaux scene and introduce new players to this wonderful game. So we decided to take the liberty of creating an audio beginner's guide on the podcast, with some bonus tips for those (like us) who are teaching the game to others. We'd love to know what you think, if there's anything you think we've missed, and to hear your stories of how you got into Malifaux. Thanks everyone!
  15. Marvel Universe Miniatures Game

    Stop making me want to buy things! Seriously, though, those 360 degree gif jobbies are awesome.
