  1. Past hour
  2. Oh and there looks like there's a vulture like creature in the old metal graveyard base accessory box (https://www.gamenerdz.com/malifaux-base-inserts-graveyard-accessories) that may be big enough for a totem proxy. Whatever you end up doing, Goodluck!
  3. From current retail? No. You could go to gadzooksgaming and buy a solo model for 9, or ebay and buy the old metal vultures (which would also be in a different pose). I'd personally just use markers, or proxy in raptors, but then again I'm not a Nicodem player (and god knows I've done silly things for the masters I play).

    Vassal Updates in 2019?

    I have a work in progress one I will be posting. Its not official but their are proxy bases for new stuff and all wounds are correct as of the moment (will probably update any changes tomorrow). not the best as I cant figure changing DZs or some of the other stuff but certainly means its playable for now until an official one is hopefully released

    First feelings M3E

    They're mostly Qi & Gong now, but similar idea

    Should I wait for 3e?

    It's also worth noting that we already know what stuff 3E Jacob Lynch "likes" to have around, and the upshot is that it's most of the stuff he likes right now. What that means is that if you want to get into Malifaux and love Jacob Lynch for his models, you're likely free and clear for the time being so long as you start with stuff that's off this list. Jakob Lynch - in the starter box Hungering Darkness - in the starter box Illuminated - in the starter box Gwyneth Maddox Mr. Graves Mr. Tannen Beckoner Depleted I'm not an expert in Lynch (in either edition) so I can't speak to what he wants to see BEYOND this list, but if what you're looking at getting is strictly the thematic models (the ones above) then you're likely good to go, regardless of edition.

    Should I wait for 3e?

    All of the stuff that was associated with Lynch in M2E is still associated with him in M3E (at least at this point in the beta) so picking up his crew box, Beckoners, Depleted, Mr. Tannen, Mr. Graves, and Gwyneth Maddox should all be safe purchases. Those models are all very closely tied to Lynch in theme and in the fluff, so it would be very surprising for them to be changed to no longer work with him. As Adran noted, Lynch is just Ten Thunders now, so that will affect the rest of the model pool that you may want to buy to compliment him.

    Should I wait for 3e?

    The answer depends on who you are going to play with. Today we are expecting to see the public beta rules for M3 released. If you are joining an existing play group, you probably want to see what they are planning on doing. If you are starting up a new play group its probably easier to just learn M3, rather than learn M2E to then discover everyone else is playing M3 (although M2E is a fine game and is you only play that with your friends you'll still enjoy it). One thing to note for your purchasing. Jacob Lynch is duel faction in M2E but Ten thunder only in M3, so if you are likely to play M3 at any point, you're probably best buying things from TT rather than Neverborn.
  11. I have been branching out into other games from GW. I have heard great thing about Malifaux and was thinking of picking up the Jakob Lynch box to start. However. my research showed that 3e is coming soon. Should I wait until the 3e rules come out or should i still get the 2e condensed rules?
  12. in the broken promises rulebook, thers a new nicodem upgrade called "circling buzzards". One of the abilities it gives Nicodem summons a vulture, with any non-vulture friendly totems being sacrificed. does this mean Nicodem can have multiple vultures now? is there a way to buy individual vultures?

    Vassal Updates in 2019?

    Anyone know if the module will be updated anytime for Malifaux 3E?

    ELI5 Nikko Kantouri Movement

    Irrelevant now but only just seen this. They don't move during Nico's activation so possible I wasn't clear enough about the order of things but our battle reports or more of an overview than in depth

    Dreamer and Chompy new player

    I agree with Fixxer, but I am going to offer a counter-opinion on the order of purchases Crew box (based on the new art, Daydreams may not be in the box. If they are not, you will want them right away) Teddy and/or Carver - They are the same cost and do the same job. I personally think Carver has just a touch more offensive potential but Teddy is more resilient Serena Bowman - Fantastic healing/condition removal, and she can be very disruptive to the other crew with her abilities when needed. Plus, makes other things Nightmares, she's good Widow, then Bandersnatch - Both pretty solid models separately, but together, oh man Insidous/Stitched - Summonable but definitely down the list in terms of necessity Again this is my opinion given a ruleset that may end up changed considerably, so salt appropriately

    Stormsiren lure and Distance

    Measuring distances in this game "is always done from the closest point of the object in question to the closest point of the target." Once you hit 0" away, you can't "get closer" to them. Even if we assume that we're supposed to measure the distance to the actual center of the tide pool (as opposed to just moving directly towards the center). You'd still stop as soon as your front edge hits the center of the tide pool.

    Stormsiren lure and Distance

    Toward and Away: "Some movement effects cause objects to move “toward” something or “away” from something. When this happens, the object in question is moved directly toward or away from the indicated object in a straight line, using the center of the object for reference. If the object is moving “toward” something, it must end its movement closer to that object, if possible. If it is moving “away” from something, it must end its movement farther from that object, if possible." So, when the Stormsiren Siren's Call you to move towards a Tide Pool, the point you're moving towards is not actually the Tide Pool but the center point of it. All movement must be in straight lines, and you have to end the movement as close as possible to it.

    Stormsiren lure and Distance

    The issue at hand is that towards only says ends closer. I guess the term closer is in relation to the starting point. So i could actually move the target past the center of the pool. Or is there anything in the rules contradicting this thought?
  19. Ravenzadow

    Stormsiren lure and Distance

    I was playing as the above. The first fire team usually ended up in the center of the pool, and the follow up teams usually went base to base with that one.

    M3E OPEN BETA!

    Remember, a Wyrd January product release is still a January release when it released on the 31st even tho the stores will not get the release until Feb 4th. Likewise, a Weds 11:59pm post of the beta files is still a Weds post.
  21. The way I see it, then is not a conditional requirement "If X, then Y" but a timing mechanism "Do X, Finish X, Do Y, Finish Y". Conditional requirements in Malifaux are stated most of the time "If the target recieved X/did Y then do Z"

    M3E OPEN BETA!

    I feel like I should state that I was being more than a bit sarcastic but that doesnt come along well online...... Here's hoping they are ready for me to read during my daughters nap later!!
  23. This argument has been shown to be false concerning the Malifaux rules. In those rules, which the authors also worked on, "then" does not indicate such a thing. Can you provide evidence that the TOS rules are written differently?
  24. According to the Targeting rules, if the action required the "Target Fireteam" to have an attached Prototype asset, it would have to say so. It doesn't, so it looks like it's not necessary to declare the action. Let's say that you've got a unit of Crow Runners with the Shock Batons Prototype asset attached. (Shock Baton is a Prototype Asset which doesn't require discarding a card to use the action.). If you targeted one of the Crow Runner fire teams that didn't have an enemy unit in range of the Shock Batons actions, you'd be all set--the Fireteam can't take an action which satisfies the requirements, so you skip it and then draw a card. If you targeted one of the Crow Runner fire teams which did have an enemy unit in range of the Shock Batons action, you have to take the action. Prince Unathi's a Commander, so he can take Field Test twice during his activation. Most of the Prototype assets have Versatile, which among other things says "Actions on this card may only be taken once during a unit’s Activation." If Prince Unathi used the Field Test action to target the same fire team twice and that unit only had one Versatile Prototype asset, that's another restriction that will make the action impossible. To be frank, I don't think "I do not want to discard a card to use the prototype asset's action" or "I do not want to take the prototype asset's action" are valid reasons to not declare and resolve the action. If you can discard a card to take the action, you need to do so. Compare the wording in the actions "This Action may only be taken by discarding a card." to the wording in Electrotioners "Fireteams in this unit do not need to discard a card to use Actions on Prototype Assets." So the simplest conclusion to reach is: If it's valid for you to declare the action, you have to. If the action requires you to discard a card, and you have one, then you have to discard the card when you declare it. "I don't want to" doesn't matter. If you can't because you don't have a card to discard, you don't take the action. Disclaimer: Taking the Field Test action and only getting a card draw out of the deal feels like a "Consolation prize" situation rather than an exploit. It's a five turn game, so Prince Unathi is going to get somewhere between 5 and 7 activations, and as a result take somewhere between 10 and 15 actions.

    B, you get as close as possible to the center of the Tide Pool.
  26. Beta

    M3E OPEN BETA!

    If it's going to follow the release times of the closed beta updates we won't see an update for the next 8 to 10-ish hours. So relax and catch some sleep
  27. "Target Fireteam takes an Action printed on one of its attached Prototype Assets, then draw a card." I would argue that since you "then" draw a card that if you don't take the Action you don't draw the card (taking the Action would essentially be the "cost" for drawing).
