  1. April is the cruellest month, breeding Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing Memory and desire, stirring Dull roots with spring rain. -T.S Eliot Spring is in the air here at Wyrd HQ, which recalls the proverb “April showers bring May flowers.” Even Waldo is in the spirit, though his bunny costume has a strange odor. To celebrate the season, we’re asking you to pull out your brushes, paints, and even your water effects for a painting competition that is sure to be hoppin’. The theme is “April Showers and May Flowers.” Miniatures can be submitted any time during the

  2. Hey Wyrdos! This week, Waldo was a bit stunned coming into the office. Everywhere he looked, our staff seemed to be gearing up and getting ready to go to battle, packed with our foam-tipped rounds and padded swords. Not one to miss out on all the fun, he spent the next few minutes duct-taping ceiling tiles to his belly, claiming it was “gut armor”. That’s right, this week we are going to battle and will be discussing new changes to Malifaux Third Edition, with the introduction of Season 2 of Gaining Grounds, along with updated errata Stat cards for several models, and an update to th

  3. Hey Wyrdos, This week, Waldo found a stack of nametags in the warehouse. Now he’s commanding everyone to call him Sir Waldo Remington III, Prince of Impshire, Master of the Nine Hells, and Lover of Dogs. So, while we take a deep breath in preparation for saying Waldo’s new name (and hope that he doesn’t add more to it in the future), let’s talk about what’s next for Malifaux, as well as take a little peek into the upcoming Starter Box for The Other Side. Last October, we released Malifaux’s 8th Faction, the Explorer’s Society, and their Faction book. This year, we’ll be adding s

  4. Finished 2 models this month. First a sandworm to keep basse fully painted. And then continued my slow progession of painting last blossom with another misaki. So that makes 23 stones for me @Caedrus

  6. Hey Wyrdos, This week, Waldo tried to contact one of his imp friends to catch up and reminisce about the dark days, but cell phone towers haven’t been installed beneath the cores of Earth’s surface yet, so he resorted to a more classic form of communication: a ouija spirit board. So, while he tries to figure out how to spell, let’s take a look at who will be facing up against Sonnia in the upcoming Starter Box for The Other Side: Kirai! In The Other Side, Kirai will be commanding The Court of Two, a mysterious ghost army that has been slowly (and secretly) amassing spirits

  8. Alright, April pledge complete. Don't think I will paint any more Faux this month. Effigy + Emissary + Pandora for a total of: 29 soulstones In the end I did paint the Effigy using more than 1 brush - needed to drybrush cobblestones on the base

  9. Aww, thanks @Caedrus! That's very kind of you to say. Anyway, here's a progress update on the Crawlers; I worked out the scheme for them months ago, when I painted the Morphling (ie. basically both Crawler types squished together). So far they're looking pretty swish for a 4 scrip trash squad. I especially love some of the faces. Like this one - Grumpy Cat's distant ancestor;

  10. Caedrus, Reporting in! I’ll be updating my efforts with some photography tomorrow, but I thought I’d take a look at the absolutely inspiring work everyone has been up to. Please take any critiques in a positive light, as they are meant to be constructive! @muraki: Nice development of your NMM. You might want to put a small amount of glazed colours to reflect the surroundings, e.g. a brown at the bottom of (March) Lady J’s coffin. I love your choice of hair colour on Lady J, by the way. Super-fine brush control on the woodgrain of her coffin, too! @Gloomy: I love your

  12. @Caedrus That's 78 SS for April. *** Well, I think that's me done for the month; A squad of Barbed Crawlers, the Devouring Eel (please ignore Parker, he'll be gone shortly...) and (finally!) an Electrocutioner! I'm not completely satisfied with the Electrocutioner. I'll probably change his piping to something else. But for now he's finished, which is a massive relief considering how long this mini's been sitting, half finished, on my desk! Anyway, for the last few days of this month I'll probably put some time into my Goblins for Kings of War

  15. Caedrus, reporting in! I have some early completions, and I'm pleased to say that my (mostly eBay rescued) Tormented keyword is complete! First, the Drowned I find myself wondering if I should do more colour on these guys, rather than going for a 'submerged' look. But, I do like the way they look (as always, water effects look garbage in photographs). Next, the Hanged! A bit uninteresting, these guys have a halo of colour on their base, which is Caedrus-speak for Incorporeal. Next, the Dead Outlaws! A bit more interesting a sculpt. It was a bit challengi

  16. Hey all, I’m new to this painting forum- literally been here 5 minutes. I’ve been painting for a few years and desperately trying to get better. I’ve seen great improvement that’s for sure! @CaedrusI just read through the Challenge rules - unsure if I’ll be making a monthly pledge just yet. Dipping my toes, if you will. I just finished Hinamatsu, Titania, and two Autumn Knights in the last week. I’ll shoot for better photos next time. And maybe actually pledging

  17. And in a flurry of activity, I've finished off the English Ivan core box! Already posted this in a few other places so sorry if it's old news. Basic idea was to do a strong white zenithal highlight and then gradually darken things with contrast paint before adding some directional lighting also with contrast. To keep things fresh, all the living crew have lamps on their bases while all the shadows are entirely in darkness. Thought it would be kind of fun to do a thing where it's Ivan and friends in the shadow realm where they have to stay in the light to prevent being attacked by t

  18. Ophelia’s totems WIP. Wasn't quite happy on ass guy skin, so fixed it. Now I fully satisfied. Also planned to paint his t-shirt wit AC/DC lettering, but realised that it would be unreadable, so freehanded anarchy symbol. Planning to finish them till the end of the week.

  25. Can I laugh that if you look in the Arcanist Forum, its all "colette has gone to oblivion, but Dreamer wasn't touched" and in Neverborn is "Dreamer is dead. But Kirai is still amazing". (With the response in here- Kirai is affected more than dreamer). Everything has changed. It may take some time to fully understand how this has changed your games, both in how you build and play your list, and what your opponent is going to do. You may not be able to do what you used to do, and you may have to change hiring and playstyle to get results. It will certainly take some time to understand and

  26. Thank you, much appreciated! I started playing Ophelia back in first edition and now finished her Totems Really quite happy how their leather jackets turned out. My LaCroix have black hats (or scarves or something for the hatless) but the Youngs have yet to prove themselves so they sport white hats. Also painted a big brother to the lil ones in the form of a LaCroix Raider. Quite happy with the liquid.

  27. Hey Wyrdos, This week, Waldo couldn’t figure out what to do to bide his time in the office, so he decided to put it up to a vote. What he didn’t expect was the unanimous write-in decision for him to “not burn anything to the ground.” So, while he figures out other methods of destruction, let’s take a look at the remaining characters in the upcoming Outcast Starter Box! The Catalan Riflemen make sure that that anything and everything related to the Condor Rails rail system moves forward without a hitch. These cheap, reliable gunmen are loyal to Yannic Waller and the rest of

  28. The amount of whining I've seen about Serena is pretty ridiculous. She was severely overtuned before and now she is at a point where you take her when she is needed, instead of crutching on her. Now that's out of the way let's turn our attention to the new possibilities that come out of Horrific Reality. Previously, being able to take the melee out of a friendly Nightmare was a front of card ability that also lowered the stat. Now it is part of the new action that has 2 very powerful triggers and keeps it stat 6. My Loyal Servant means Serena has more healing potential than she

  29. The Dreamer was ruined. Vivid Nightmares cancels the bonus action. Where others have useful options - we got an action that is canceled by 50% by the Master.Upgrades were not given. Bowman was crippled. There are no defensive techniques. Reduced HP. The price is the same. When is the genocide of the faction planned?

  31. I’ve got an idea for the one, true master of Malifaux: Ulix! I spend a total of 20 minutes on this and refuse to accept any criticism on this totally balanced work of art! 😂 Lore: The pig master of Malifaux had known much hardship in his many years. Wanting nothing more than to rest in the shade with his beloved hogs, he continuously found himself under attack by the outside forces that seek to harm his family. Driven to the limit of his abilities, Ulix found assistance in the magics of Wong. Seeking forgiveness for the atrocities that are the Swine-Cursed, Wong agrees and prep

  33. It was not that third Focus stack that carried Nekima through dark times. I find that, rather than focus stacking, Strategies have a much larger impact on her viability, namely those that reward aggressive alpha plays and mobility, which GG2 definitely does. No more Public Enemies and no more Recover Evidence means that folks can't just slow ball in their own deployment and expect to win. You've got to cross the center line and take non-killing actions, which Nephilim are just naturally good at (as well as denying) Beyond that, a lot of the "soft" stances that came with the new errata and GG

  34. No one has mentioned that Youko has gained a trigger called Queen's Gambit. So I will: Youko Hamasaki has a trigger called Queen's Gambit. She is now officially Malifaux's coolest most bad ass model. Now, I don't know whether she's into substance abuse, but it doesn't quite matter since she still is now more bad ass than Von Schill. And Nekima. Combined. Without a mustache. I love it.

  35. Titania is the master with the highest win% in the vassal WS. Euripides is play with a lot of success by some (mysterious) people... Zoraida is a powerhouse and with the Bokor left untouched and the drip in power level to other top masters I think she'll be even better! Nekima and Dora can be competitive... So except if you're solely a Lucius/Marcus player (and even than, the new gg is good for them) we should be fine! Deep breath... and go slaughter some stuff (especially guild stuff), it will help 😁

A box, a bin, several drawers that still seem to small somehow... @Caedrus has the Monthly Painting Challenge to try and give us hope that there's an end in sight. But some models sit on the Shelf of Shame because we just don't know what to do with them. Thus the Shelf of Shame Support thread! Show us the models you're struggling with, brainstorm with others on techniques and color choices, or even just vent about how everytime you see Studio AG's work you just want to burn your brushes and sob...

  38. I would love to see an alternate version of Dreamer that traded summoning nightmares for more of a focus on reality-alteration around him. Maybe a way to change the terrain traits for terrain/markers, as well as placing his own. Literally shaping the world around him to better toy with his foes. I know mechanically the idea overlaps with some other terrain-based masters, but it would fit him really well thematically, and could be a really interesting way to give him a different playstyle.

The idea is to follow these guidelines: 1) Make a competitive list with some flexibility if possible 2) Limit the initial purchases to 2-3 boxes (less is better) 3) Focus on Keyword models followed by good Versatiles 4) Generally avoid non-faction models (except those in master box) and taxed models The color c

  48. Finished up my skaven army and now it’s time to get back to some REAL painting instead of batching 40 dudes at a time. First up, some spooky shadow friends? of Ivan! Went with a more monochromatic scheme since they’re literally shadows but I also wanted to go with bases that represent a dark cobblestone path through a park around halloween. The theme will be way more apparent on some of the actually important models, I promise!
