Building a better player

Having recently returned from BK-Faux (A decently sized event in New York City) with my metaphorical tail between my legs I've resolved to become a more competitive player of Malifaux. I've made the rounds through my LGS and found 4 or 5 players that like the idea of being more competitive as well, so we have decided to help each other get there.  I've played Neverborn since 1.5 and, although I was very interested in foraying into Arcanists, have decided to stick with my favored faction of

Masters duel — Yan Lo vs Perdita

Recently we decided to find out who is stronger — Perdita or Yan Lo.  The rules were quite simple — one master, three upgrades, fight to the death on a 1'x1' table.  Yan Lo took the Brutal Nekhekhara, Innerving Aura and something else I don't remember Perdita took the upgrade which lets her ignore armor and incorporeal and something more.  What upgrades would you take for these masters?  Next week I'll publish the results, but before I'd like to see your predictions.

First tournament at Geek Wars store.

Last saturday at Geek Wars we've had an awesome tournament! 12 participants, 3 rounds and tons of fun!  Alas, I don't know the players' names on the forum, so I can't mention the winners. I had a small prize package from the henchman's welcome kit, but to encourage the guys I made for them a free participation in our next event, which is going to be held very soon!

Pre Twatifaux Update

Well, tomorrow is twatifaux.  Im a wee but under prepared but I'm totally stoked to be able to field a painted crew.  Since my last post I've played one more game. This time we played scenario 2. I looked at James' Ramos crew and realised I couldn't beat it. James realised that in our last game I couldn't have tangled Ramos into Lilith as he has the upgrade where I lose all suits when I cast at him... It wa unintentional and the game would have been totally different.  Anyway, the

Nekima comes to claim what is hers!

So its well overdue for an update and here we go: In the last 4 weeks there has been a lot going on, both Faux wise and IRL. Things of note should have been posted - so here they are:   3 Feb: I was invited to play in the Red Jokers slow grow campaign. This was kinda sprung on me when I rocked up to play. I was all fired up to try out GG16. But had a crack at the campaign instead. I had what was in my miniature case and as my waldgeists were 90% complete I decided t

And a choice is made.

But I’ll tease a bit first. What can I say? I’m mean and it’s funny. You know, unless you know how to scroll down and skip the rest… I should stop giving ideas now. So this Saturday just gone, I went to another tournament (third in three weeks! Kinda tired now) which was Ante Up in Northampton. I’d spent the previous week messing about with Collodi and loving every minute of him, this week I was planning on doing the same with Rasputina.  Unlike the great puppet, I have some experience

Just a little update

I've been meaning to update the blog for a little while but have found time today finally! 3 posts in 2 months isn't too bad really by my standard. Painting, I finished my first crew of this year! I'm aiming to get at least 5 done this year after the last 2 years paultry output.  Yan Lo in all his glory           Happy with the way the crew turned out. Izamu's eyes were my first proper attempt at OSL other than a couple of half-arsed on

Through the Breach recruiting

Our gaming group is looking for a second female player. Right now our campaign is Through the Breach, Wyrd's game of Victorian steampunk horror. Our group consists of three reliable male players and one female player. Looking for one more girl to help balance the numbers a bit. We play on Friday evenings, from around 7:30 pm till 12 am, Pacific Time. Experience with Through the Breach is not necessary. Rules can be taught. Our games are a mix of social challenges and combat.  If you ha

Stumbling at the first hurdle.

I had a plan for this post. Okay, it was fairly rough and may have ended up as two posts but nonetheless, I had a plan. I was going to analyse the two factions I can use for this self-imposed challenge, examine my feelings on each of the seven masters for both Arcanists, focussing on those that hold little appeal to me (Lucius, Zoraida and Marcus, if you’re curious). I would then move on to general lists, see if I could make a pool of models that works for the majority of the masters (so M&S

Decisions, decisions

I’m writing this to try and figure something out. See, I love this game and have been playing for around 16 months now. For the first eight or so, I went Arcanists and had a middling to poor record though I will note that I thoroughly enjoyed playing Kaeris. So much so, that I bought bits from the Easter sale to get the alternate version of her.   Then I moved onto Neverborn, playing them almost exclusively from June until the nationals (Okay, mostly Pandora. You probably could guess t

Painting Started

Well, I finally finished off my bases. I still need to do the rims, but I'll do that as part of finalising the model.  After the achievement of getting the bases done, I figured I'd assemble a new toy:   furthermore, I got 3 models painted (mostly). Daylight was running out so I still need to do the eyes. I'm thinking blues? The bark is done using about 6 layers of airbrushing. I am not 100% happy with the gradient variances, but hey they're waldgeists; I can only make

Fixed Pool selection

I’m considering attending an event in a couple of weeks that is based on a limited pool. Now whilst this event is set up in a way to make it seem a beginners event, it is probably one of the most challenging ways to play tournament Malifaux. You need to plan for all sorts of eventualities before you even see the venue tables. This event is fixed master which sort of makes it easier, but also can make it harder for some masters. There are probably a few sorts of Malifaux pla

Three Weeks Later

So its been a couple of weeks and my bases still remain unfinished. They are getting closer and I hope to have them finished by the end of January (is this how GRRM feels about getting his Winds of Winter finished? Poor bloke, lol!) Saturday, the 23rd of January, I attended my second Malifaux Tournament - Arcanifaux. It was 50 Soul Stones and hosted by House of War in Ringwood Melbourne. It was 3 games in total and very relaxed. We had 16 players attend which is pretty good e

Rail Crew Working

Extremely happy to say I wrapped up my rail crew today.   Quick but effective, i'm hoping to attend a tournament in Atlanta at the end of the month.  Declaring Arcanist, letting Mei Feng hop around crazy haha

Failing at playing Arcanist

So it didn't take long, I've already become entranced by another crew.   The aesthetics of yan-lo's crew are too fantastic to ignore, so without further ado my ancestors list with him!   I'll be working on The Rail crew next

The beginning

So I've been eyeballing Malifaux for the better part of three years, buying a M2E rule book and the M&SU crew box.  A baby and new career later and i've finally found the time to pursue the game! I've come from a war-gaming background and found Malifaux refreshing in game play and aesthetics. This past Friday I was able to play in Atlanta at the most excellent Giga-bites cafe'   I'll be working towards a Henchmen position and growing a community in the Macon/Warner R

Project: Neverborn

I want to focus on Neverborn this year. I've dabbled in Guild and had a few games with Ressers but I finally settled on Neverborn. Such a cool backstory and a great range of models to boot. I painted up the Mother of Monsters box set about 18 months ago and since then, I have decided that I want to change the basing. I was originally going with sand + grass. This will now be black and white chequer bases. I'm not going to rebase this box set until I have at least gotten some other mode

New Years Resolution

Over the years I have had many new years resolutions. This year it was something along the lines of: Drink less beer Exercise more Eat Healthy Lose weight Lets be honest none of those are going to happen! How about some realistic targets: Paint more models than I buy Paint more models than I assemble Play more games that the sum of (models that I paint + assemble + buy). As with all new years resolutions, the best time to sta

Looking at Hobby for the coming year

So, I thought I'd do a kind of resolutions post, a look towards what I want to get done or achieved for the coming year.  Or at least what I'll be doing hobby-wise in the very near future. I'll start with gaming, there's nothing too much with gaming for me.  The main thing is to have fun and play as much as possible, the fun takes care of itself, so I'll try to attend more tournaments than 2015 which was 8 in total.  Anything over that will be a win. I also would like to try out lots o

Lots of painting progress and games in!

The new year has begun, and I´ve been busy with #TOMB3! In this post I will show my painting progress, and rant on a bit on random topics that are Marcus related. First off I noticed that Marcus has another theme, besides from beasts. Namely butts! I think this is the crew for which I painted most butts. Second, it;s lovely how much painting variation there is in this crew. Everything is so unlike the others, so I had lots of experience painting. Trees, frogs (silurids), hairy bea

Hello!

I've decieded I'll start a blog on this here site, it seems to make sense being as most of my hobby focuses around Wyrd games.  I also run a blog on Wordpress, so it'll be the same post as on here, if I like posting here more I might move over altogether, but will see for now. First up, a look back on my hobby for the past year seems to be a decent place to start..... I've been meaning to do a little look back on what I've been up to last year in both gaming and painting, as much as fo
