Monday Preview - Alternate Rasputina

Recommended Posts

We know the other Twisted boxes and TOS are actually different materials, so I'm still very curious which one is being used here.

This Rasputina box doesn't include an adventure booklet: it's just the models. 

On another note, we'll have a list of goodies out for next week's Black Friday / Company Birthday sale come Monday afternoon. Right now, everyone's off at PAX Unplugged to show off Malifaux, the Other Side, and board games to the masses. If you're down in Philadelphia, swing on by the booth to say hello!

I can't decide whether to :( the first point (no booklet), or :D the second point... Roll on Monday!

Only only. 

Does this mean that it will only be available for Black Friday and potentially other sales, or permanently online? 

Is the material the same as what The Other Side will be or the same as the Tortice and the Hare?

It says it'll be made available during the black friday sell, what are the odds of it being available after that?

That's what I want to know, I wasn't planning to do an order this year, but I really want this set!

Yeah, I won't have any money for things for myself until just after the new year so I'd be kind of bummed if its a black friday sell only kinda deal.

The box will be a limited release. As of last year or so, we decided to stop doing prereleases as a way to help out the brick and mortar stores that carry our products. 

We have three different core demographics for our products: those that love assembling our miniatures but don't play the game, those that love playing the game but don't like to assemble miniatures, and the "Alpha Wyrdos" who love assembling our miniatures and then getting them out onto the table. 

Our core Malifaux products require a fair bit of assembly, and that's not going to change anytime in the near future. The Twisted Alternatives line of preassembled plastic lets us offer some fun alternative models to that second demographic of player that doesn't want to spend their time gluing each individual strand of hair to Yan Lo's chin.  :P

No matter which group you fall into, we hope that you can at least understand our attempts to offer some fun preassembled miniatures to folks that don't like model assembly (or to those who just like the idea of samurai turtles and killer snowmen). Different strokes for different folks and all that.

This is awesome ! I like the twisted alternatives series. I hope we get more in the future !

I am just a bit disappointed this is a limited release only and not something permanent as the Hare & Tortoise box.

But hey maybe the success of this box will make you change your mind :D

And second box down the road- the Grinch (ice Golem), Whos (Acolytes and Silent Ones) and a pair of Elves (Ice Dancers). OR Abominable Snowman (Ice Golem), Deer Skinwalkers (Silent Ones)?

I'm fairly sure all my pre-built malifaux stuff has not been glued to a base when I got it, so I'm imagine they are glued to a 40mm above for ease of painting

Since Black Friday has come and gone, has anyone found out why there was no Ice golem included in the box?

Don't get me wrong, I think I did an amazing job painting my golem's butt, but I just don't want to buy a second box to get another golem.

Probably a combination of the vast majority of Raspy players finding Snowstorm more valuable than the Ice Golem, and now that the Golem's summonable letting you get multiples of it separately without having to buy a $75 box just for one model whenever it drops solo

It's fun to change stuff up once in a while.
