  1. 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...
  2. I've got a Dark Carnival for trade on eBay. Please don't message me here, as I rarely get chance to check! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Malifaux-Limited-Edition-Dark-Carnival-Nightmare-Edition-box-set-Wyrd-Miniatures/332430075667?hash=item4d66606713:g:Hh0AAOSwke9Z9iQQ
  3. Well, I just ordered myself the Wild Ones, WooT! Wish I coulda' been to GenCon, but thank the Tyrants they have a webstore. Anyhoo, since my 2016 Nightmare crew is gonna be sitting on the shelf beside McCabe (who will probably never hit the table again in that incarnation), I think to myself, "Self, wouldn't it be nice to have The Dark Carnival sitting on the shelf next to Colette?" The answer; Yes it would! But it's not available for sale... So if anyone would like to sell me an unassembled Dark Carnival box, I'd really like to buy it. I Got the Scrip, in paypal, USD.
  4. So, I'm having issues deciding how I'm going to base a few of these models. Going for the easy Circus theme isn't so easy. I frankly don't know what to do with the flying monkeys or the hammer mannequin. For all the rest I've used some all purpose sand and some simple props. Mr Cooper is standing on the thing a ring master usually stands on. Mercury has a kettle bell at his feet that looks like one Louis Cyr might've used. Baritone Lola and Thin Lizzy are on two sides ofseesaw, with Lola on the high part. Sword Mannequin is balanced on a circus style ball. I thought the strength test would be good for the hammer, but honestly it's too over the top and would take too much room. I can't think of anything for the monkeys. What did y'all do? I need inspiration.

    Low-down on Dark Carnival?

    So, I wasn't able to acquire a Dark Carnival set during GenCon, but I like the look and feel of them so much that I'm starting to hunt for a set to get (+The Crossroads 7 organ player...of course :D). A question I have: I keep seeing pics here and there of a 'Black Friday' Corphyee for Dark Carnival. Does that mean that that box will come out on... Black Friday? I don't know. And help you could give would be awesome. I'm also assuming (since I haven't seen them yet) that there aren't any pics of the CADs anywhere. Also, if anyone has a link to pics of basing ideas, or assembled painted DC, that'd be awesome!
  6. I just popped open my Dark Carnival box to check out the sprues and cards and noticed a couple of things: First one of my mannequins swords was broken already, I'll have to glue that up, dang those things are thin! Second the stat cards are all kinds of different sizes. The printing looks fine but they are all cut to varying sizes vertically and horizontally. Does anyone else have this problem on their cards? It makes it so the cards don't all fit into sleeves the same, some are very loose, some don't fit at all.

  14. 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. If you are comfortable working on a set of custom rules for casual games, and willing to make a constructive contribution, please feel free to join in on this great adventure. ~~~~~ DISCLAIMER: This project is not in any way supported or endorsed by Wyrd Games.

Below that, the schedule will be posted. At that point, Da Git wants to reserve the following post. After that, please, by all means, have at it! This is a space for both balancing and typos, so do what you can to do both. ~Lil Kalki

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.

Sadly, we are missing a Mr. Peanuts (the elephant), so we must omit him from the roster (for now). Non-Constants to decide upon sooner than later: The crew should be Arcanists, Neverborn, or both. (Opinion: Both) RESULT: Both Mannequins can also be Mummerettes, and thus a new model entirely. RESULT: Mummerettes, not Mannequins Flying Monkeys could be Mr. Cooper's Totems, but there are other options as well. RESULT: Totems Baritone Lola is probably the Henchman of this crew, being the Cassandra analogue, but could also just be an Enforcer. (Opinion: Henchman) RESULT: Henchman Mercury and Thin Lizzy are the Performer analogues, but could also be Enforcers instead of Minions (as Enforcers are more often named models than Minions are). (Opinion: Both Enforcers, and if not, just Mercury) Flying Monkey station characteristics, as mentioned above (Peon/Minion). (Opinion: Peon) My Opinions Explained: Both, because while NE makes this crew look amazing Neverborn, it also has its roots in the Arcanists (as it's a NE of an Arcanist crew). Lola's Station should be Henchman because Lola has a prominent role in the Dark Carnival fluff. Mercury and Thin Lizzy should be Enforcers due to being named characters which gives a higher chance of being an Enforcer in the game anyhow. However, being that Willie for example is a Minion, there is precedent for named Minions. If this is to be true for one, make it Thin Lizzy (the bearded lady) as Lizzy has a less-prominent role than Mercury (the strongman, who is mentioned many times throughout that piece of fluff). Flying Monkeys should be Peons because totem minions are sort of rare. I'd make them insignificant too, at the very least to put them in line with Peon status, but they could also be significant Peons, which is a first and nicely mirrors things like The Depleted. So, I'm just going to go ahead and post a poll about Faction, and I'd like you all to vote on this, but I'd also like your input on the rest of the non-constants, and if you can, please explain why you think a thing should be as you want it So, let us get started. ~Lil Kalki POLL RESULTS: 1.
