  1. Hrmmm ... I wonder what these are? And because I'm slightly bored today, every 25 likes to this post gets you some additional inane information about the pair.

  2. Hey all, Along with this month's FAQ, we see a few fairly important erratas. They are as follows: Leveticus has had his Cache dropped to 1. The Channel Ability on Leveticus has been rewritten to allow him to gain Focus once per Activation at the cost of 2 damage. The Malifaux Rat has had the Hamelin's Pets Ability added, which states that it may only be hired into Crews led by a Nihilist and that, if it is summoned into a Crew which is not led by a Nihilist, then it may not Activate on the Turn it was summoned. These cards are already available for purchase through p

  4. Hey all, I have had an amazing time working and volunteering with Wyrd and their many projects over the years. It is a company I really love and I'm proud of the work I've done with them. However, I am leaving to seek other exciting opportunities. I want all of you to know that I am still on very good terms with Wyrd and all of its staff. Very few people get to live the dream of making games for a living, so I definitely owe thanks to Nathan, Eric, Casey, and Vickey for allowing me the opportunity to spend time with this amazing company. Thanks, guys! Aaron, Mason, and Lindsey are al

  5. The Importance of Community - One of the things that I love about tabletop gaming is the way it brings people together. You sit down, sometimes with a friend, sometimes with a stranger, and play a game. Everyone is there for the same reason and shares the same passion: having fun through games. The tabletop community is a bit unique in the way it uses the social contract - an unspoken agreement between people - to try to promote everyone having fun. The tabletop community is one of the few places you might be invited to spend a few hours with random strangers. The way this

  6. Howdy folks, As you know, from time to time we run a 'sale' (though arguably it isn't really that as we don't discount anything), where we have offered special edition items as well as pre-sales on early releases. While good for us, and great for the rabid fan, it can sometimes not be so great for local game stores. Now I could spin back and forth with numbers and point out 'it really isn't that much of our overall line', which it isn't, but at the end of the day, there are some stores that are genuinely affected by the sales. We care a lot about our community and our stores, so we'

  7. Wyrdos! Hello! It is time to reveal the January 2017 Malifaux Errata! As I mentioned when I took over Malifaux, the plan is to move away from a bimonthly FAQ and Errata. Instead, we will continue the bimonthly FAQ (in order to address clarity issues), but the Errata is moving to (at most) twice a year. These updates will be in January and in July. The January Errata is where we will be looking at overall gameplay and trying to make any adjustments we feel are necessary to the health of the game. You can see that in this Errata document. I do not expect this file to be this large agai

  9. Hey everyone, GenCon has come and gone! A lot of our year is the build-up to GenCon, which means that you've now seen most of what we're able to show! As such, Monday Previews are going to become fewer and further between, at least for awhile. We'll keep the news coming, though, as there are plenty of things happening around Wyrd. For now, I just have one "preview" for you -- we have commissioned the creation of a Malifaux App! If everything goes well, we are hoping for a release by the end of the year. I can't promise that, but we think it can be done. For now, though, just know tha

  10. Hey everyone, In light of the current and completely understandable frustrations regarding the fulfillment process of Gen Con orders, we felt that it was necessary to shine a light on a few things, such as what makes this year so different, some of the challenges we are currently facing, and the steps we are taking to alleviate some of the dissatisfaction. Before we can get started with that, though, the first thing worth understanding is the size of our team. While we consider it a compliment to the assumptions made of Wyrd’s size in comparison to our competitors (to us, it means th

  11. Hey Wyrdos, We have always loved good art. Art can tell a story and inspire a player. We've worked with many talented artists over the years, but we've never had a full time artist in house. Well, the times they are a-changin'. It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to Alyssa, our new artist. Alyssa came on board last week and has bent her brush to the task of creating amazing art for our games. We are so excited to have her and share her art with our community. Alyssa comes on board after doing some freelance work for us (if you've seen some of the art for Bayou Ba

  12. Hello Wyrdos, It is with some sadness, and some excitement, that today I announce that I am leaving Wyrd. My last day will be April 20th. Wyrd has been an amazing home to me and given me so many opportunities. I moved to Georgia to work at the company, and I don't regret a moment of it. I've gotten to work with some amazing people, and I've gotten to work on some great projects. I've learned a lot and grown as a designer, and I couldn't have done that if Wyrd didn't give me the freedom to try new things. And the reality is that Wyrd is so much more than a bunch of people sitting

  13. Hey everyone! As some of you may have noticed, the Mounted Guards that we released at GenCon are at a different scale than our other miniatures. This was an unintentional mistake on our part, and if you purchased one of these sets, you have our apologies for not living up to the high standards you've come to expect from our company. In order to correct this mistake, we've pulled the Mounted Guards from our production schedule in order to get them resized to the proper scale. When the new and improved Mounted Guards return, they'll be properly sized and ready to take the fight t

  14. Hey everyone, I just want to make a few quick comments about errata. First, I think it's important to say that no errata will please everyone. Social media and the forum are in a near-constant state of arguing about tier lists and what is good and worth taking. Podcasts debate it for hours at a time. What I see at US tournaments is different than what I saw at the UK Nationals, but the level of play seemed about the same. I think the saying is "different strokes for different folks." As such, you can expect that any nerf will be claimed as not needed, a good move, and not enough. We

  15. I'm making this thread to address the topic of sexism in gaming in a way that allows for some discussion. As I'm sure everyone can understand, this is a very thorny issue. I'm going to post here to address some of it, but with two caveats: I am not going to address any incidents in particular. I don't feel that this would be productive to either side of the debate, and I think it's a debate worth having. By removing it from any specifics, I think it's an easier discussion for everyone to have. I am going to be moderating this thread with an iron fist. If you post here, understand

  16. Hello there New Players and Old Players alike! I've noticed this coming up in a lot of different threads on different forums and in game store discussions and thought it could use some additional discussion and reference: TERRAIN IS A BIG DEAL IN MALIFAUX The amount, placement and type of terrain will affect your game. And not in a small way either. Now most people will realize quite quickly that if they use a traditional Warmahordes board of 2 trees and a small hillock Masters like Perdita get muchmuch stronger as their shooting attacks dont have to worry about pesky LoS or Cover, so

  17. Hey Wyrdos, This week we've had to explain to Waldo just exactly what social distancing is and despite our best efforts, he's just not getting it ... we're tempted to show just exactly 'what' we shook out of the keyboards after he was done with them, but our lawyers have advised against it. A few of the fellas are still disinfecting. So, while we quarantine the little bugger for a couple of weeks, we thought we would present you with a bit of fun for those of you who are locked up in self isolation and provide you with a good ol' fashion coloring contest!

  18. Wyrdscapes is our new terrain line coming this year. Featuring detailed, high-quality plastic, the Wyrdscapes line will allow players to build beautiful, customizable tables. The buildings have interchangeable floors, allowing you to build different looking buildings, all of which will stack on top of each other (well, it's hard to stack on the roof pieces, but you get the idea). The table itself is made up of smaller tiles you can spin and put in different locations. And last but not least, different elements of smaller terrain can fill in the final details. We are very excited to

  22. Hey Wyrdos, This week, we took Waldo shopping. To make him feel comfortable in this digital age, we decided to take him somewhere closer to his own comfort level: a desolate ruin where the people fight for scraps and attention called a “mall.” After the umpteenth request, like “can I help you” and “do you need a hand with that” and “don’t eat that” and “please stop burning the merchandise,” Waldo just about got his fill. That was until we stumbled into the food court. We’ve never seen Waldo more excited. So while we try to drag him away from the pretzel stand, let’s go over the next

  23. Introduction Resurrectionists (or Ressers if you don't like typing/saying big words) are the faction associated most closely with Undead and summoning. Likely that's why you came to this forum, because you want to play with those kinds of models. This guide is aimed at taking you, the novice, through the interesting choices ahead - which Master to start with, what models to buy to support them, and why. As with everything in Malifaux, there are no absolutely right answers. This guide is one person's opinion, based on trial and error (because this guide didn't exist until I wrote it).

Mason has taken point on Through the Breach for awhile now, showing both willingness and capability. This announcement was inevitable, and I, personally, think Through the Breach is better off for it. So please take a moment to congratulate Mason! Second, we have hired a painter to join the team: Curtis, aka Omnicarbivore. Curtis is an amazing painter, having won the 2015 Iron Painter competition. He's completed a number of

  26. Just because everyone asks or is curious and ends up poking me about it, and I'm in a semi-informative mood at the moment. All Crossroads models are currently in tooling - of course CNY is upon us (grr), but it's done. I'm pleased overall. All Shifting Loyalties has been sculpted, and splits have begun on them at a very quick clip. We've also ponied up and negotiated on tooling and we're looking into doing slide cores, which is quite a bit more work and resource heavy, but will allow for less splits. We'll see where that goes, but I like the idea. We're now working full steam on s

I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself and tell you a little about me and why I'm here at Wyrd. I have been in gaming since I was a kid starting with Monopoly (I'm extremely cutthroat and will have you begging for a welfare check in no time).

  28. Hello all, This January we have a big list of errata changes. This errata focused almost exclusively on Book 1 and Book 2, and it was mostly limited to cost changes. This was to try to bring some models more into rotation and lower other model's use, and it should hopefully provide more flexibility during list building. Here are the changes: Arcanists Ice Golem (Cost -1) Hoarcat Pride (Cost -1) The Captain (Cost -1) Slateridge Mauler (Cost -1) Razorspine Rattler (Cost -1) Cojo (Cost -2) Patron's Blessing (Cost -1) Gremlins

In the past, we've been able to confidently expedite our books from our printers direct to us without much in the way of interference - not quite the case anymore! In this last month plus, we've dealt with a naval blockade (a first for us!), the ship that it was booked on being returned to port for a full inspection (also a first!), after it made its appearance here at port in the US an extended stay of near two weeks with customs (sadly, not a first, or last), not

I thought it would be useful to pull these little nuggets of useful information into a post that's easier to refer to. I won't limit what I include in the post to answers that appear in that thread, but will only include information that I can link to a statement by a Wyrd representative. I've paraphrased the questions and have quoted relevant parts of the replies from Wyrd and then linked to the reply which may provide some additional detail that was not quoted.

And no, most of yall who have been tossing out prices are still considerably off. Yes, eventually they will all become available as PDF books. Only the core rulebook and stat cards are being translated. Fluff and the like is not. If you're concerned about the translations, take a look at the free TOS rules/translations and go from there.

Many of you have gone through the grueling process of testing the game to get its rules and models to this point, and we couldn’t possibly thank you enough for that. Rest assured that the vast majority of that work will remain intact. The intent of the Open Beta is to get Malifaux Third Edition from where it is (a great spot) and bring it up one more level (to a fantastic spot). This means that our focus will be on polish.

This is because we have the big Black Friday company birthday sale to prepare for, and then to process as we also get ready for year end. In all the rush and efforts, there are some errors that come through. The first, as was already announced, was the Widow Weaver. We saw that it was mistakenly added to the sale when it showed up on the first order we went to process. A couple of days later, we saw that Nekima had been improperly priced on the store. She was not meant to be $35, but rather t
