  1. Hello! I've just started working on my smoke and mirrors box, to prepare for some Colette action. What do you guys hire for her? I ordered the special edition performer from the black friday sale. Do you ever use 3 of them? Thanks! <modhat> I'm arbitrarily designating this the generic Colette discussion thread. </modhat>
  2. Hi all, A friend of mine is selling: Colette Du Bois, Cassandra, 2 Performers, 2 Mannequins, 3 Mechanical Doves, Angelica, 2 Coryphee, 2 Ice Dancers, 3 December Acolytes, 3 Malifaux Raptors What do yuo suggest? Are these enough to build a good competitive list or have I to add some other models? thank you!

Hope you enjoy that report, sry for my bad english and sry to doesn't have photos to be more funny to read, and thx for all!!!
  4. Hi dudes! The next Saturday I'll go to a tournament [Declare faction + 50ss], and someone that knows me a little you can imagine I'm a very very meticulous man xD First of all this will be a hard and long post, if you keep reading assume that, and... if that are the case... thx!!! I'll go to explain all the shit of my head, and if you can and want, I'll really appreciate all the advices can give to me, thx for all blue mates =P I promise a report later if can ^^ I'll divide the post on sections: 1. Introduction 2. Miniatures that i have 3. Better Masters vs Factions 4. Better Masters vs Schemes 5. Schemes explanation 1. Introduction Thats are my opinions for the tournament and masters: Colette doesn't shines vs any faction but she doesn't are bad vs any faction, and she really shines on practically all Schemes, is a solid election for that reason if I doesn't know the enemy Sandeep is a new Master and I can get advantage of that if the enemies doesn't know all his tricks and he is strong like the fucking thunder kebab (Joke of my group of friends xD, don't kill me) Marcus is my better hitter with all of his Alphas for try to win fast and it's very versatile, can give me the oportunity to change hitter Marcus on control Marcus Ramos are a safe election if I doesn't trust on a victory, he can give me time to analyce the ground thanks to his arachnids and go for the victory Raspi doesn't are awesome on Schemes but with a gunline Crew and Ice Pilar can give a mental win before a real win on the adversary, and let me be honest, she is a fucking killer, and if the enemy doesn't have crew he can't score any VP 2. MiniaturesI have these masters: Colette[C], Victor Ramos[vR], Sandeep, Marcus[M] and Raspi[R] And these miniatures: Colette, 3xDove, Cassandra, Angelica, 2xCoryphee, 2x Manequin, 2x Performer, Ramos, Brass Arachnid, Joss, Howard, Mechanical Rider, Johan, 6xArachnids, 2xSwarms, Arcane Effigy, Sandeep, Banasuva, Kudra, 3xOxfordian, 3xSantionated Spellcaster, 2xPosionG, 3xIceG, 1xMetalG, 1xWindG, x1 FireG, Marcus, Jackalope, Myranda, Cerberus, Cojo, Rattler, Raspi, Wendigo, Snowstorm, Essence of Power, Arcane Emisary, Envy, Ice Golem, 3xDecember Acolyte, 3xMoleman, 2xSilent One, 3xRaptor, Mobile Toolkit, Rogue Necromancy, 3xCanine Remains, Dawn Serpent 3. Masters vs Factions The order of Masters it's below the factions with my decisions Guild (M > R > C > S > vR) Marcus and Raspi can hit fast and hard all his masters except Hoffman, if I can kill enemy miniatures fast I usually can get sobreactivating for easy win Perdita is a famous Guild master and didn't want Obey on Ramos for explode to Howard... Resurrectionists (S > vR > R > M > C) Sandeep it's awesome in that match, Ca burn incorporeal and can summon Ramos have a lot of armor and summon too Raspi have Frozen Heart so good vs Horror duels Marcus can get down easy his Masters Arcanists (S > vR > C > M > R) In general they have a lot of armor, the best Masters vs armor are Sandeep and Ramos, and the worst Marcus and Raspi (In the other hand, its really fun Alpha Ramos for explodes Joos and Howard =P) Neverborn (R > S > C > M > vR) In that matchup the best Arcanist hablity IMO it's Frozen Heart and if we add Ice pilars and Paralyze... Sandeep and Colette can do nice tricks here and can give tricks to Arcane Effigy a must on that matchup Again time I doesn't want Zoraida Obey Ramos for explode Outcasts (M > R > C > vR > S) Viktorias are the best hitters in the game, but Marcus really shines here, he can Alpha further and better, can kill his master in T1 and hit hard other Outcast masters Raspi can go to kill Masters too and blast are good vs Hamelin Sandeep and Ramos play's style is on a bubble, and Arcanist faction play's a lot of armor models, solid reason for play Viktorias and if i take this masters probably lost the game on T2 Ten Thunders (C > S > vR > M > R) In that Machup, the best master is a minion... Arcane Effigy it's a mandatory, so much conditions and tricks, and another time the masters can move and do tricks with that model are the best Colette and Sandeep Colette, Sandeep and Ramos can do a crew with Joss and I love cut defensive triggers Ramos and Marcus can do a great Alpha fast on his models Gremlins (R > C > S > vR > M) Wendigo can Devour virtually all Goblins and with Ml8... and Ice Pilars are good cover vs Snipers Again Colette, Sandeep and Ramos can do a Crew with Joss and this is the best weapon for kill the goblins 4. Masters vs Schemes Round1 Headhunter - close deployment (C > S > vR > M > R) Claim jump (C > vR > S > M > R) Frame for murder (C > vR > M > R > S) Leave you mark (C > vR > M > R > S) ---> (C > vR > M > R > S) Show your force (S > R > C > vR > M) Hidden trap (C > S > vR > M > R) Round2 Extraction - standard deployment (vR > S > C > M > R) Claim jump (C > vR > S > M > R) Eliminate the leadership (M > R > C > S > vR) Accusation! (C > S > vR > M > R) ---> (C > vR > S > M > R) Cover breakthrough (C > vR > M > R > S) Search the ruins (C > vR > S > M > R) Raound3 Guard the stash - corner deployment (C > S > vR > R > M) Claim jump (C > vR > S > M > R) Dig their graves (C > vR > S > M > R) Recover evidence (C > vR > S > M > R) ---> (C > vR > S > M > R) Set up (C > S > vR > M > R) Last stand (S > C > M > vR > R) 5. Schemes Headhunter (T2) (Colette > Sandeep > Ramos > Marcus > Raspi) A. Whenever a model kills or sacrifices a non-Peon enemy model, it places a Head marker within 3" of the deceased, not in base contact with a model B. A model in base contact with a Head marker may spend a (1) Interact action to pick it up C. Picking up one or more Head markers on a turn (except Turn 1) earns your Crew 1 VP. Tip: You can pick up friendly or enemy Heads and they score the same, so ranged attacks may just be giving your enemy points if they have another model near the target. Tip: From an offensive standpoint, models with Don't Mind Me are extremely useful for picking up a Head in the middle of a packed scrum Tip: Lures are also great for bringing opponents to your crew for easy killing and Head retrieval Tip: Models To Consider: (Arc) Performer; (Grem) Fingers; (Guild) Guild Austringer, Master Queeg, Nino Ortega; (Never) Beckoner, Doppleganger, Mr. Tannen, Scion of Black Blood; (Out) Big Jake, Hodgepodge Emissary (Pretty Floral Bonnet FTW!), Rat Catcher; (Res) Mortimer, Philip and the Nanny (10T) Mr. Tannen, Sensei Yu Extraction (T2) (Ramos > Sandeep > Colette > Marcus > Raspi) A. Crew 1VP if it has two or mroe non-Peon models 6" of the Marker B. After points are scored each turn (starting turn 2), the player with the most non-Peon models within 6" of the marker can place it within 3" of its current location (but not into base contact with terrain or a model) Tip: This means that, if you're winning, you can move the objective towards where you have the most strength...or towards where you want your models to be next turn. In practice, the marker's Tip: Tip: movement doesn't make a huge difference in most games Guard the Stash (T2) (Colette > Sandeep > Ramos > Raspi > Marcus) A. Two 50mm Stash markers (Ht5, blocking, impassable, hard cover) on the Centerline B. 5" from the center of the board in each direction C. At the end of each turn after the first, a crew scores 1 VP if it has at least one non-Peon model within 2" of each marker. Tip: Presence of the Stash markers themselves means that models with Incorporeal or Flying have advantages in terms of maneuverability Tip: Also, since players need at least one model in each of two places, there are two areas that need to be reinforced Tip: A single model in either location can be killed or displaced to ruin an opponent's scoring opportunity Frame For Murder (T1) (Colette[Howard] > Ramos[Howard] > Marcus[Cerberus] > Raspi[December] > Sandeep[Kudra]) A. Name non-Peon model like "sucker" B. If model is killed or sacrificed 1VP C. If the enemy model was Master/henchman +1VP D. If its before T4 +1VP Covert Breakthrough (T5) (Colette[PP+Raptor] > Ramos[PP+Raptor] > Marcus[PP+Raptor] > Raspi[December] > Sandeep[Wind Gamin]) A. End of the game +1VP for each Scheme Marker within 6" of enemy Deployment Zone Hidden Trap (T5) (Colette > Sandeep > Ramos > Marcus > Raspi) A. End of the game +1VP for each enemy non-Peon within 3" of one or more Scheme Markers B. Remove all Scheme Markers which are within 3" of an enemy model Claim Jump (T2) (Colette > Ramos > Sandeep > Marcus > Raspi) A. Scheme Markers near the Centerline B. Scheme scores at the end of each turn after the first C. Need at least two Scheme Markers within 2" of the Centerline, but they can't be within 2" of an enemy model or within 4" of another friendly Scheme Marker D. If you scored a VP from this Scheme at the end of the turn, ALL of your Scheme Markers within 2" of the Centerline are removed Tip: Be wary of taking this Scheme if you plan on dropping other Markers that you want to keep from turn to turn, since they might just vanish at the end of the turn Eliminate The Leadership (T1) (Marcus > Raspi > Colette > Sandeep > Ramos) A. Reducing the enemy Leader below half their Wounds B. Killing or sacrificing the Leader (or reducing them to 0 Wounds) C. Having the enemy Leader out of play at the end of the game Accusation! (T2) (Colette > Sandeep > Ramos > Marcus > Raspi) A. You cannot target a model that has already activated this turn to give the Accused Condition range 1" B. Condition is removed with its own Tactical Action, (1) Hold It!, which is not an Interact Action, and won't benefit from Don't Mind Me or other Abilities or Actions that allow Interacts while engaged C. Removing Accused is only a (1) at least D. Only need one Accused enemy, but the Condition must be ended to get the point, so you have to keep Accusing models each turn Dig Their Graves (T1) (Colette > Ramos > Sandeep > Marcus > Raspi) A. killing an enemy model that is within 4" of one of your Scheme Markers, then a Scheme Marker within 4" of the slain model is removed Tip: Abilities, Actions, or Conditions that allow you to place Scheme markers while engaged will help, but aren't a must have since there's a good bit of distance allowed between the Marker and the killed enemy Tip: If your opponent is going for this one, remember that an enemy model needs to do the killing blow, so sacrificing or killing a vulnerable model before your opponent can might not be a bad idea Leave Your Mark (T1) (Colette[PP+Raptor] > Ramos[PP+Raptor] > Marcus[PP+Raptor] > Raspi[December] > Sandeep[Wind Gamin]) A. At the end of the turn, remove one of your Scheme Markers on the opponent's half of the board that isn't within 6" of the Centerline or 4" of an enemy non-Peon model to score a point Show of Force (T2) (Sandeep > Raspi > Colette > Ramos > Marcus) A. ount the number of face-up Upgrades that cost at least 1 Soul Stone you have attached to models within 6" of the Center of the board B. Upgrades that are attached to a Master or started the game attached to a Master do not count to this total C. If you have at least one qualifying Upgrade and at least as many qualifying Upgrades as your opponent at the end of the turn, you get a point Recover Evidence (T1) (Colette > Ramos > Sandeep > Marcus > Raspi) A. At the beginning of any turn, you can reveal it to put one Evidence Marker in base contact with each of five enemy models chosen by your opponent B. Your models can then take a (1) Interact Action to remove an Evidence Marker in base contact Tip: Reveal this Scheme early and the Markers will likely be grouped together, but rather far away. Wait and the markers might be closer, but they'll probably be more spread out. Tip: Keep in mind that you can score multiple points in a turn with this Scheme, and you only need three out of the five Markers to get full points Set Up (T1) (Colette > Sandeep > Ramos > Marcus > Raspi) A. Scores 1 VP for each Scheme Marker within 4" of an enemy Master, Henchman, or Enforcer model that you chose at the beginning of the game Search the Ruins (T5) (Colette > Ramos > Sandeep > Marcus > Raspi) A. Score 2 VP at the end of the game if you have at least three Scheme Markers within 6" of the Center of the board B. Get a bonus point if at least two of those Scheme Markers are on the opponent's half of the table C. Be careful, because Scheme Markers within 2" of each other don't count for scoring Tip: Also watch out if you took Claim Jump, since that Scheme removes Markers near the Centerline and might make a marker you needed vanish Last Stand (T1) (Sandeep > Colette > Marcus > Ramos > Raspi) A. Get a point for having at least three Henchman and/or Enforcer models completely outside of your Deployment Zone B. Need to have fewer models in play than your opponent. Tip: Keep in mind that you need to reveal this Scheme the turn before you can begin scoring, so reveal it early or make sure that your Henchmen and Enforcers will last through the next to turn to start scoring
  5. I was playing in a tournament yesterday and one of the Schemes was Search The Ruins. Pretty much in the centre of the board was a cliff which was Height 5 Impassable. It was sufficiently large and so placed as to block 6" of the board centre from 6 to 11 around a clock face. My question is: If I have a model next to the cliff, using the Practices Production upgrade on Colette, could I place a Shame Marker on top of the cliff, in a position to score for Search The Ruins?
  6. Hey folks! I'm looking for anyone who has a 1e Colette avatar they're willing to part with. I'm willing to pay cash or arrange a trade, so if you have one, please contact me. Thanks!
  7. While I think the answer is no, I'm going to ask anyway. Can a Mannequin make an interact action when within 8" of Colette, under the Rehearsed ability? While I understand that Peons and Insignificant models can not normally make interact actions, the wording of Rehearsed says: Rehearsed: Friendly Minion and Showgirl models within 8 may take (1) Interact Actions as (0) Actions. So, why the question? A Mannequin is a Showgirl. The rule says that it may take a (1) Interact Action as a (0) Action - it doesn't say a (1) Interact Action as a (0) Interact Action I have scanned the forum, and I can't find anything related to this question. Thanks in advance HNS
  8. Specifically want the one where she pulls a rabbit out of a hat, but will buy the full pack of three if that's how it's sold.
  9. So Cassandra has an ability called (1) Understudy: Take a (1) Ca action belonging to target friendly non-leader model within 8". This action may target friendly leader models if they have the Showgirl characteristic. This action may only be used once per Turn. If Colette gets some (1) Ca actions via upgrades, can Cassandra use those with understudy? If so, does she also have access to the triggers given by the upgrades?
  10. Hello everyone, Welcome to my painting log! I'm new to Malifaux. In the first part of this log I will share some pictures of my Ramos crew and some pictures of my other painted models for other systems. I have a painting blog at Rust and the City. I'm going to save this space for links to different projects as this grows beyond 1 page.
  11. Hi,. I have a friend that is just getting into malifaux and has colette's crew and a few other models. We are going to be running a 2 master tournament and he is looking for a good master to compliment her. Since her crew is exceptional at scheme running I assume Something a little beatier would be better. He likes Marcus and Mei Fang if they work
  12. I'm relatively new to Malifaux, been playing for about 2 months but the game has inspired me to paint like never before. My first crew is a Leveticus crew with all the bells and whistles, and I'll post that up if I can get a decent shot of all of them. But for the past few weeks, I've been eagerly painting up the Nightmare Edition Dark Carnival box that my friend picked up from Adepticon 2016, plus a few in-theme extras (Angelica, Coryphee), and I'm really excited to share this here as my first ever post on the forums. Some models were more interesting to paint than others, but overall I had a blast working through this crew, and it's quite a brain burner in-game too! Here goes...
  13. Morning everyone! This weekend I finally got to play my Colette crew and she was...AWESOME!! I could not have had a better scheme pool Squatters rights protect territory, spring the trap, plant evidence line in the sand and break through. I ran Colette Cassandra, 1 mannequin, 2 performers, 2 doves, 2 coryphee and they all did pretty well. There were two problems though 1. Anna Lovelace @#$%@%# #%#@% #$#@@ she is the worst thing ever for this crew. I was really under whelmed by the Coryphee they helped a bit with schemes to start but after that I just kept wishing I had taken Howard for the better damage. So I'm hoping for some good tips and trick for using them well. Do people split them up? when do you make a duet? do you try to combo their attacks performers seduction or there own condition? any and all help welcome thank.

  15. I'm working on putting together a Colette crew and one model that comes up a lot is Howard Langston. Now, Hank is a great guy and all but I feel like he is a bit... out of sorts with the rest of the showgirls- and also I know that if I buy the Ramos starter I'll end up filling out that crew as well, which I should probably hold off on.) So I'm looking for ideas for something else that could be turned into a good conversion for ol' Hank. My best one so far is Hannah- with a bit of re-working to add some steam vents and mechanical cabling and claws (which is pretty doable, since I have a large box of spare bitz to work from) she seems like she'd be a very passable conversion, but I'm not married to the idea yet. Obviously anything I use will have to be on a 50mm base and will ideally be roughly the same size as him. Can anyone else suggest any good stand-alone kits that might work?
  16. Colette Crew =) Comments are welcome =P
  17. Hi everyone, my name's elinore. There's an introduction-thread in the introductions forum if you want to know more about me - http://wyrd-games.net/forum/showthread.php?p=260624#post260624 Here's my first showgirl The pictures could be better i'm afraid. You can't quite see all the detail, like her eyeshadow. Oh well This miniature was so fun to paint. i spent a lot of time painting her and it was hard to stop. In the end, i'm very happy with the result. i tried to make her look hispanic. Oh and the base might get something stuck to it in the future, like some playing cards, coins or something. i hope you'll like her! i've got a mannequin in the works too.
  18. Now that the 7th, and final, Arcanist crew has been released in plastic, I've now painted it up. This involved a bit of innovative basing (for me), some cute use of mini magnets and a lot of flesh coloured paint as Colette and the Showgirls take to the stage for the first time! Full details of the (pretty average and unskilled compared to most folks here, but hopefully still useful to mere mortals ) painting and basing here on my blog
  19. Okay, so: The Dark Carnival is coming out for GenCon, as a proxy crew for Colette's standard loadout (Colette, 3 Mechanical Doves, Cassandra, 2 Performers, and 2 Mannequins). We are getting a number of named models, themed after a circus troupe described in detail in the latest Wyrd Chronicles (images for the crew box are also in that issue). The Dark Carnival proxies as Colette, as mentioned above. I am not satisfied with that alone. What I have been tossing about as an idea both on this forum and on AWP is the idea of being amateur (or better!) devs and betatesters, all of us, and creating our own set of rules for Mr. Cooper and his Dark Carnival. And that we did. Now we are onto Stage 2 of this wonderful journey of ours: Playtesting. If you have been watching this space with great interest (or any interest at all, even), you probably have done so with the interest of playtesting this unofficial crew. That, or you probably just want to watch our process and progress. We finished the brainstorm rather early, and now it is the public's turn to give as much feedback as they desire. Unfortunately, I got a reply from Aaron Darland about getting this crew ruleset into the Chronicles and he said that between people skimming the Chronicles for things, and people just plain not reading the Chronicles, it wouldn't reach a wide enough audience and those it would reach may accidentally take the crew as solicited and official. So, the Chronicles is out, but I'm still by all means down to do this! Hope you are too.

I am not affiliated with Wyrd except by virtue of being a Henchman. Any games of Malifaux (Wyrd's game) involving this ruleset must be approved by all parties involved before being conducted. Official Wyrd events may not include this ruleset. ~~~~~ PROJECTED DEADLINE FOR PROJECT "COMPLETION": November 15th, 2015 @12:00AM, EST (one week before the week of the Black Friday sale) I figure that'll be the next time Mr. Cooper's Dark Carnival is publicly released, and we hadn't enough advance time for the GenCon release to do this, so this should be best. DEADLINE FOR BRAINSTORMING SUBMISSIONS: July 30th, 2015 @12:00AM, EST (the night before GenCon begins) Ideally, I want to start playtesting ideas starting August 10th, one week after GenCon ends. By then, some people might have the crew already - additionally, they will have had some time to recuperate in the aftermath of the convention. Setting this playtest between August 10th and November 15th gives us just under 100 days to playtest this singular crew - which seems to be plenty of time (according to my math, which may be off as I am bad at it, we'd have exactly 98 days). ~~~~~ Constants to adhere by: This crew is dual-faction Arcanist/Neverborn. Mr. Cooper is the Master of this particular crew. Sadly, we are missing a Mr. Peanuts (the elephant), so we must omit him from the roster (for now). Baritone Lola is the primary Henchman for this crew. Thin Lizzy and Mercury are both Enforcers for the crew. Flying Monkeys have the "Totem (Mr. Cooper)" and Rare 3 charcteristics. They are significant Minions. The Mannequins in the box are a new model as well, collectively called Mummerettes. The Mummerettes are not differentiated. Non-Constants to decide upon sooner than later: What does the condition Hazy do? I would like no less than 4 different ideas for Hazy before I make a poll to choose. If we do not have these ideas, I propose we revert to the standard "The Haze Only Gets Thicker" template. ~~~~~ So, let us get started! POLL RESULTS: 1. Faction for Crew (Ended 6/18 @12:00AM EST): Arcanists - 1 vote Neverborn - 10 votes DF Arcanist/Neverborn - 31 votes 2.

(Ended 6/27 @12:00AM EST) Yes, the crew should make heavy use of simple duels - 13 votes No, the crew should find another mechanic to use - 4 votes ~~~~~ FUTURE POLLS: What should Hazy read as, as a condition? (begins 6/30, ends 7/3) ~~~~~ Does anyone else have any other questions to put on the polling block? ~Lil Kalki
  21. When Ramos lent Colette one of his rail golems, he had no idea she planned certain modifications. "Just keep it," Ramos sighed.
  22. Me and some friends want to start playing malifaux. I really love 3 masters of this faction: Rasputina, Colette and Kaeris. I wish to make a play test with all of them before buying a box. So i would like to know pros and cons of this masters and maybe some crew examples to play at 50 ss. Thank you for your help
  23. Hi there, had my first game of M2E last night. I played (apart from other models) Colette and a Coryphee Duet. Since Corlette has 3 APs is it possible to cast Prompt three times on the Duet and make it attack three times out of its actual activation? This seems kind of overpowered. Gtx A
