February 15 - Hodgepodge Emissary

Recommended Posts

Man I'm glad the avatars are legal proxies. I really hate the donkey. This and the gremlin one are just too rediculous compared to the other emissaries.

The bonus preview is intriguing. New swampfiends maybe? Will-o-wisps?

I think it's an impressive model, but IDK if it really fits my aesthetic for the faction (outcasts definitely have western covered, but none really feel goofy).

Those other things are pretty cool, though.

Hodgepodge still isn't exactly what I want from an Emissary, but I think the model fits the way it plays very well and will work out that way quite well in the end.

Emissary is terrible as expected.

No real opinion on the bonus. Might be more interesting with context.

Love the Hodgepodge so much. Great job guys. I personally think think the Hodge looks exactly like it plays. Plays great. 

 

That uh.. That underneath thing... Seems like someone is going to get a lure. Gremlins or ressers?

I simply don't understand Hodgepodge Emissary's concept. Others get evolved Effigies (or a Dragon or a weird Scythe-Bull) that all look menacing and look to have the battlefield presence that a 10SS monster should have. They also all mesh somewhat well into their Factions and into the Masters therein.

But then the Outcasts get an old man on a cartoon donkey.

It doesn't seem to fit in with any of the Outcast Masters. It does, arguably, fit together with Aionus in that it is an old man riding something random but other than that it's completely random.

As a model it is actually rather nice, I think. If it wasn't for Malifaux gaming I would like it quite a lot. The largest sack on top is the only part I'm not very fond of.

The other three look good. And certainly very different than I though but in a really good way.

Thank you Dirial! :D 

(Thank you Wyrd as well)

Love the Emissary!  I think it looks exactly how it plays, and I like that it's both playful and the guy on top looks like he's seen... things.

I love the emissary - it has a strong vibe, like a friendly travelling salesman you'd regret saying no to. Like the tinkerers in the Kingkiller books! It's looks like it will be a royal pain to assemble though ...

Haha, I guess that's already been discussed, sorry! I'm pretty new around here... Anyway, the model is rad, I'm excited to get one on my work desk!

It may or may not have been discussed, but Aaron's reply wouldn't change.  He's probably just putting that more as of an indication that you've spotted a connection they (Wyrd staff) may have intended.

 

Also, I got into this thread, and the first thing I saw was the Angler Fish, and I was like "Did I read the title wrong?"  But then I read the 2 lines of text, and it made more sense :P  I wonder if those things are underwater.  They'd fit in just fine with the creepy things at the bottom of the sea.

Now I'm jealous, I wish my work desk was a Malifaux table ;)

Magical fairies! Cheerful little beings that will play with us and make us laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh. I am sure everything will be just fine, as long as you remember to smile.

I really like the Hodgepodge for how very much Outcast it is. The travelling salesman is always a stranger and the model conveys that very well.

So, let's speculate. First off, it has a M2E logo on it, so I going to take a wild guess and say it's not for through the Breach or another system. I know guys, I'm going here into crazyland...

Since no current release would fit such model I'm taking a wild guess and say nightmare crew. NOOOOW, since we all know that Guild is getting (another) Nightmare Crew, where the 'eff do you see that fit? [taking balnks here] AND much more important, do we have to paint that glowy butt, too, to use them legally in tournaments?

Hah. Point to you. 

I actually had to go look up what you meant on that as it's not a commonly used term here in the states, but let me just say 'thanks' for the damn images that popped up on my browser. Bleah.
