  1. Just wanted to say thanks for the effort that was put in to this by the Wyrd crew and their partners, I follow several mini games and your virtual Gencon efforts were the best by far. As someone from Australia it was great to be able to get excited and participate in it at the same time as everyone else. I hope it's something that you consider doing a little more of in the future even when things return to normal.

  4. Hey Wyrdos! Thank you all for participating in this first ever virtual Gen Con! Waldo may have been chewing on some wires over here, but you stuck with us and helped make this a great time. It was fun talking with you, answering questions, and giving previews about upcoming content. We still haven’t shown everything off, so keep your eyes on Waldo for future teases and news about our games! Did you miss any of our events during last weekend? Fret not! We have compiled a list of links for you to browse and catch up on all the awesome things we did. What better way to start off th

  7. Wyrd had mentioned, during the Gen Con Stream, that before they had chosen Explorer's Society as the 8th faction, they were once considering to split the M&SU from Arcanists to make them an independent faction. I am very interested in this one. So what would happen if it had came true? Toni and Kaeris for sure would be the new leader. But how about the other masters? Which side would Sandeep join? Would Hoffman still coming to M&SU? Would Marcus leaving completely and become a pure Neverborn master? Would English Ivan still show up and join either side? What other new

  8. Hello all. Really getting into the “fluff” of Malifaux. Even my girlfriend likes me reading the stories over the phone when we can’t get together. However I just discovered the Wyrd Chronicles e-zine. Apparently a lot was going on in Malifaux that I missed by “just” reading the core books (like the death of Nicodem) however I don’t.know where the chronicles stories “fit” as there is no publishing date I can find. Can anyone tell me what books the magazines are set between? For example how long after the 1st edition Malifaux core book came out was issue #1 release, before rising powe

  12. Those are good models, but both of these are also worth 3 bounty tokens... I'm not totally sold with Anna, she seems tanky and will restrict some Colette options, but it won't stop her main combo: taking one of your models away and putting it near of one of her beaters (probably the Duet); and what is worse, it stops the placement of her own model so she won't have to sacrifice a dove to do that, plus her damage doesn't seems that great; later into the game she may make harder for colette to save a model in her aura, use showstopper near of her or to throw a beater forward tho... I like Manos,

  13. Any hopes for the box? I was disappointed when Rooster Riders weren't Big Hat. They seemed perfect for the I'm Done with This Demise ability. My hope is that these are Big Hat and get it. Generally mobile stuff seems good too. Not that Bayou is slow, but it could always be faster.

  15. NP :). I don't integrate those models that much into my lists tbh; I do rather going close and personal with Misaki/Ototo (and use Tanukis to buff those 2 instead of the ranged ones) with Minako to get a few cheap schemers... It doesn't mean it's the best option, but I enjoy more those kind of crews (I'm a NBV player after all XD). But I can maybe give you a few ideas: Outside of those kind of gunlines, Archers are great to deny points thanks to target practice (and that may be copied by a terracota; which is a legit model for LB); if you expect hordes, the is also useful and Chi make the

  16. Lol, savage! 🙈🙈 About the actual question, for that the gunline works wonder; I've only played it in a not 50SS game, but the idea is using Yamaziko's aura to give to minions. So you activate and reposition her first, and then try to do as much damage as possible with the gunline. Mind it works with ALL duels, not only oposed duels; Tanukis works wonders as these have high TNs but can flip 2 cards with them and Focused will be very helpful to deal meaningful damage (an that aura also makes easier to get Fistful of Arrows with Archers). You'll use some mix of snipers and archers; but cons

  17. Even without big forests the range is actually good for their 4 Mv stat! with Ambush their reach is 8'' or 7''+underbrush diameter in the best case; having Planted Roots they do like to stay in forest/underbrushes so it probably don't even cost a card. Also a cute trick of these boys is littering the map with underbrushes while moving up the board: Germinate, put the underbrush in contact with it in the direction the Waldgeist is going and then ambush for free (which also creates a dangerous area for enemy models thanks to the underbrush), in fact they may ambush twice the same underbrush

  19. My fellow Wyrdos. There comes a time after a new model has been announced that we must band together and make our voices heard. Give Malisaurus Rex a 0 inch Frantic Flaliling attack. Just a zero inch range 1/2/3 track melee attack. Tome- Good for a Laugh. Not only would it be hilarious but also accurate to just how useless those stubby little arms are, but also very thematic. Please Wyrd. Thank you.

  20. Ok, I just learned this and thought it’d be appreciated here. T-Rex arms only looked little in comparison to their body. They’re actually roughly the size of human ar,a and are theorized to be able to curl 200 lbs, which is more than enough to slap you into a coma. I will one hundred percent be telling my opponents that my M-Rex slapped their models to death.

  21. Austringer could be another interesting pick. I really need to try a Basse crew that just tosses traps or reinhardt at people.

  22. Big hat! Summon 3 Bayou Gremlins, now they all are near each other so they get +2 to their stats, 1 may not be slow, so you get 4 shots, stat 5, cheating off the top of the deck. Oni! Summon 2 Tengu, they then make other already existing models interact with their bonus action.

  23. Good point regarding crow cards, the value difference makes it so they practically aren't competing in this regard. The other arguments against using both (especially stone cost) still stand imho. Ordering Flesh Constructs around could be nice, legit objection. I don't know if that's enough reason to include her. Maybe if interacting zombies can actually score in a given pool? Without that I still would not include her, so still a tec pick.

  26. I would point that on right table he might be fun with Waldgeist(s?) - MR grants them slow trigger which imho is great trigger, but it required high crow card reserved for better models.

  27. While I certainly haven't played McMourning, I have experience with summoning concepts in multiple different games (I always play Undead or Demon factions) and the underlining design concept are, at their core, the same. First, you don't want to invest more resources than you get out of it. Maximal output with minimal input is the name of the game here. You know... capitalism. The most simple signifier for that is stone cost, but especially in a mission focused game like Malifaux that's not all, but for simplicity's sake I will refer to that. Details come later and usually must be decided

  30. As an abyssina player doom seekers tend to mess up our elite electrocutioners as does keeping this unit out of glory. In general into abyssina you want to have something that can drop the opponent from glory be concious of the electrocutioners 12 gun range and be mindful to keep fireteams over 3inches from each other. This limits the effects of area.

  36. So we've had some time to chew on this new crew available to us, and while I've seen a lot of spooky looking theorycraft, once the "bury your whole family" Thoon builds were fixed in beta, I haven't heard of anyone doing well with the big bois. To the contrary, savage has been donkey-stomped the like two times I've seen them on the table months ago, and the more telling evidence IMO, while I've seen Neverborn players in the vassal community, I haven't seen anyone reach for Euripides in quite a while. However, I like their overall flavor, Old Ways seems cool, and as fellow brutal natives of

  37. Dear All, As I desperately try to get my minis finished for July, I realised that I have nothing set up for August. But that's OK, because I have a lone Drachen Trooper sitting on my desk. So, that's my pledge. 8 points of Flammerwerfer goodness. I'll do something else, maybe even getting started on the terrain pieces I've been promising myself for ... wow ... a looong time. See you in August - take care of yourselves, and keep putting pigment to plastic! Caedrus.

  39. I have no official news, the last I heard at the end of last year was they were working on the cards but it is time consuming. If its like the rules when they are nearly ready they will ask for people to check them. But otherwise I think Wyrd has been taught that giving provisional dates ends up getting you more bad press than good press.

  40. I made some custom markers for when I play. I used some 30mm and 40mm cut acrylic tokens I got off of Amazon and Etsy. I then used XPS foam to make the Coffin markers and Piano markers for the Carrion Emissary and Zipp. I then did some blood splatter and chalk outline for corpse tokens. I wanted to keep them pretty flat since I’m often on top of them.

  42. I've bought so many sets of those for scatter, makes a board pop. Haven't tried it for ice pillars, maybe I'll have to check that out. If you're looking into them, I've picked up a few of their 'custom colors' sets (went for a blue / white transition) and they look super sharp. I'd definitely consider the custom option as gadzooks is fast / helpful and it's only a bit more expensive.

  43. Another thing to consider- McMourning is one of our strongest tech pics for certain matchups. A focused McMourning can two shot a valedictorian in a best case scenario. So even if setting up two flesh constructs ends up being too demanding, one flesh construct + a focus pulse from a ritual could be very strong.

  44. I just think it's funny that Bishop has been mentioned positively compared to Hans. When Hans has provided more straight up value for me every time I've used either one. Not more per stone but more total value despite being a stone cheaper.

  45. I am only going to name one, Santiago, I enjoy Santiago's lore and the idea behind him but he doesn't translate to that on his card. The majority of him is fine - solid abilities, so so stat line, good front of card except for one major factor. His wounds/lack of defensive tech to be the model he should be. Thematically Santiago is the family bullet sponge, he goes in, soaks up damage and gets better except his df 5 and 8 wounds make him an absolute liability. Particularly because of the prevalence of focus in this edition. He is a bully victim as any good beater in the game should crush
