  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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!

  8. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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).

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). I have been a part of several gaming communities from Miniature War gaming to TCGs. I used to run tourneys for several games such as Raw Deal (WWE TCG), Pokemon, Magic the Gathering, Heroclix, Privateer Press and of course Malifaux as far back as 1st

  13. 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

  15. Wyrd has answered quite a few question for people about M3E in the Third Edition Threadnought. 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.

You can also find a copy of the Schemes and Strategy deck on Wargame Vault. It comes in the standard size and a large size. These make a great resource for playing the game, allowing you to quickly reference the rules or deal out a game set up. 2018 saw numerous changes to the format, all intended to improve the experience of players.

  19. Dual masters will show up in both books, as well as Faction Decks. Dead Mans Hand models will be available via Faction Decks as well as downloadable online. 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.

  20. Hey Wyrdos, We’re thrilled to announce that on Wednesday, January 16th, we will be launching an OPEN BETA for Malifaux Third Edition! 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. Clarity, grammar, theme,

  24. So in the M2E Core Rulebook Perdita's story gave us the names for the 13 Tyrants, and since then I've been trying to keep a record of who they are and where they're at in the story. Since it's inception I've expanded the list to include other major characters in the backstory. This list is up to date as of the Broken Promises and 2nd ed. Through the Breach Core rules. Before you go on, the following contains SPOILERS, some of them very big ones, from the stories found in Rippling Fates onwards!

You can find it on the website or attached to this post: M2E FAQ & Errata (March 2018).pdf In this update, the formatting changed slightly so that each Faction section has its own numbering. This makes some of the updating easier on our end. In terms of content, the additions can be found below: Actions And Abilities in Multiple Factions #87-90 87.

"Maybe you will the one?" she asked herself quietly as she pouted her lips in anticipation. "Well, 'ere goes nothing!" she exclaimed to no one in particular as she planted a delicate, hopeful kiss right on the nose of the slimy frog... Just keep trying Clementine, you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you meet your Prince after all

  31. Hi there. Some people seem to have no end of problems with the new Wyrd plastic models. So I've decided to try and give some tips which to some may seem obvious, but aren't so readily apparent to others. Some of these tips may also help veteran models who may have developed some bad habits over the years or are having difficulty making the transition from metal to plastic - while there are many similarities working with the two mediums there are also several differences. I've built several of the new plastics and I've never broken or lost a single piece while assembling. For full clarity,

  32. In this miniature, I decide to try to keep the theme of my previous work. Old paper, cards and some (un)dead stuff. As always, the idea was formed at the last moment, and time to implement was short. I thought, during the game, there is no worse fate, than at the most inopportune moment to pull the Black Joker, which will confuse all your plans.

But for the past few weeks, I've been eagerly painting up the Nightmare Edition Dark Carnival box that my friend picked up from Adepticon 2016, plus a few in-theme extras (Angelica, Coryphee), and I'm really excited to share this here as my first ever post on the forums. Some models were more interesting to paint than others, but overall I

We've not announced prices as of yet, that'll come here shortly as we finish up a few things. That being said, rules, cards, etc - all released for free online. No one has to spend a dime on any of it if they don't care to. Now if you want nicer books, professionally printed stat cards that are coated, additional background, etc - you have other options available.

And then I was thinking: "What the awesome rules, let's look at the modeEEEEEEBLUAARGH!!". Nothing remember after that. Imagine how surprised I was when I saw absolutely delicious, gorgeous and awesome models at this time?

I don't know if this counts against me but I wanted to be up front about it in case there were any issues.

  46. Because I like getting my toes dipped back in the early days to play around. Because I could. Because I was curious again about metal and some other things I'm messing with. And because even more bluntly, I've got my plastic people up to their eyeballs between finishing up TOS, continuing with Malifaux, knocking out the new Wyrdscape - and I don't need to add on top of it at the moment. It was a bit nostalgic to go through the process of cuts and having metal in hand again - and the damn slivers of little metal everywhere. :)

The Grave Golem is, essentially, a large chunk of graveyard that has been animated by the Resurrectionists to serve as a heavy enforcer. During battle, a Grave Golem can sink into the earth and reappear a few moments later halfway across the battlefield, provided that there is a corpse for the golem to form around. That something so large could move so quickly often comes as a surprise to the golem's enemies, many of whom end up ei

When I started to create this miniature I know that this crew will be the Spanish Inquisition style and I was thinking "Where they can be?". And then I decided that the bar will be great. Brawl in the bar. I should finish it for the 2 July, for the Moscow Skirmish Day. That will be my best work for now (actually just painting part, diorama will be crafted by the true master). At the moment you can enjoy the Perdita Ortega!
