    Hey Wyrdos, This week, Waldo started shouting about needing a Gatekeeper, something about being a Gozer, and there being only Zuul. Once we explained to him that we were going to be talking about KeyWORDS and not KeyMASTERS, he disappeared in a puff of frustrated smoke. Him being gone works out for us, though, because we’ve got a lot to talk about this time around! Last time we spoke, we asked you what parts of M3E you wanted to hear about, and we’ll certainly touch upon as many of those as possible in future articles. This week, we’re going to take a look at every existing model in the game and which Keywords they possess. This list includes all of the models from M2E. There will be more models to fill in gaps in M3E, but we’ll cross those bridges when we get there. As a reminder, in M3E, your Leader can hire any models that share a Keyword with them, as well as any Versatile models, at their listed Cost. They can also hire models belonging to their declared Faction, albeit at +1 Cost. Totems are not specifically noted on this list but can only be hired into a Crew that contains their Master. Versatile models are denoted with asterisks after their names. Crews can be led by both Masters and Henchmen, both of which have been noted below, along with any secondary Keywords that those models can hire without penalty. As you look through this list, you’ll see a few models that have undergone name changes, which are noted where applicable. And, not that it’s needed to be said again, but just in case: M3E is still in beta-form, and details are always subject to change. To find the list of models, head on over to our website!

    So, on a lighter note... UK guys getting the pledge before the rest of Europeans is part of Theresa May's program to get the best out of the Brexit deal? The delays make me thing that the european hub has to be Spanish, that performance can only be achieved here! Or it might be in Paris, I'm pretty sure I saw this guy with the yellow vest throwing some King's Hand to the police On the bright side I'm happy with how it turned out, I bought the dual pledge so the horde was a present for my girlfriend last year, and it can be also this year's present! Talk about getting the best value out of something!

    It's been a while since I posted anything. I've had a lot to do at work, and my hobby time had gone to other stuff. In fact, it has been so little painting that the Guild decided to send two impartial investigators to find the truth about what happened. After careful investigation we have concluded that the Guild is definately not to blame for the lack of painting. Allthough it might not be clearly visible on the photos, I added a bloody knife to the base, so that she would have something to investigate. I thought a bit about which colour to use for the carpet. A light colour (like in the illustration) would look good and provide some opportunity to paint blood stains. However, I decided that it would also push the model to far into pure comedy territory. If you are going to dispatch of a bloody corpse it is stupid to use a light carpet as the blood would soak through. A red carpey would make that much less obvious. So I went for a red carpet.

    Thanks to weird for hosting another great Iron Painter. I always love seeing the entries of those with way higher skill sets than myself that pushes me to learn more. There was also some very inventive submissions this year that I thought brought up the technical modeling skill of the competition as well. I liked the themes of the earlier rounds as I felt they where less subjective than the later themes which likely made it tough for the poor judges. It was a shame to see the judging being called out so much this year and I can only guess if that was a contributing factor to there only being 2 judges for the last round. I guess the iron painter is just as much of a stress for the judges as well. A big thanks to the 2 that made it through the whole thing.

    @Franchute - really great job running the challenge in 2018, thanks for the effort! I think I'll join this one too although I don't have many minis left to paint. Hopefully commissions and maybe M3E will anable me to continue with the Master level

    Happy to see that Last Blossom was expanded to include pretty much all the models that logically should be Last Blossom. Poor Arcanists though, lost their Raptors to Guild. And it looks like the Soulstone Miner is moonlighting for .... Ma Tucket. Yep, Malifaux’s greatest scientists and sorcerers once again outwitted by swamp folk. Surely they will soon throw off the shackles of their Guild oppressors, he said as he fed diced mage bits to his new pet bird. 😇

    I was going to wonder what kind of convoluted pretzel logic you had to use to get to this, but then I noticed the line in the rules that says "If a Fireteam is able to take multiple Actions, those Actions must be taken in immediate succession." I love it when the rulebook lays it out clear as day. It does cut into some fun titan tricks though, bummer.

    If you keep reading the advance order, it says at the end that any fireteams that didn't perform an action can then perform an action. So the result is that the squad performs some number of actions, then everyone moves, then performs more actions.

    I converted Malifaux Bishop to look like Iron Maiden mascot Eddie. Painted showcase video. 360 degrees view.

    Hello, Wyrdos and Painters! This year, @Franchute ran an absolutely excellent community painting challenge. In 2019, I’ll try my hand at the challenge. I had a few ideas about a monthly reward, but there were a few reservations in the community, so I’m happy to abandon the idea about rewards; this is about the community, not about me! The established soulstone-based formula seems to be working, so let’s keep doing that. I had a few ideas about terrain values (and none about The Other Side), and an idea about Achievements! I’d sincerely love to know your thoughts, feedback, and suggestions. Here goes: Idea 1: Terrain. Terrain is worth 5 soulstones per 50mm base. Here’s a piece of unfinished terrain (shot from above, it’s a subway entry). This would be worth 15 Soulstones, the same as a Master. Does that sound about right? Idea 2: The Other Side. Following from @Boomstick’s suggestion, shall we start with the following costing of ‘The Other Side’ miniatures? · Fireteams are worth their unit cost in Soulstones. · Titans are worth triple their value, just from size and complexity. · Commanders, like Masters, are worth 15 Soulstones. What do people think? Does this work? Idea 3: Achievements. I thought it might be fun to encourage everyone to push outside of their comfort zones in 2019. Much like Achievements in the online gaming world, I thought it might be fun to put up a list of Achievements in painting. These are for fun, to try something new, and to generally encourage getting pigment onto plastic! I’ve been scribbling down a few ideas, and I have close to 100 Achievements. I’ll list a few below, and I’d love to hear your feedback; would you try some of these? Do they look fun, or just silly? Would they encourage or irritate? Let me know what you think, and be honest! Hopefully my references aren't too obtuse... All your base are belong to us: Make a base as impressive as the miniature. Wololo: Convert a Wyrd miniature. Buddhist: Use the non-metal-metal painting style. Thin your paints, must you: Give constructive advice to a fellow painter My eyes! The goggles do nothing!: Show your worst miniature to the Wyrd Community, right here. These colours don't run: Paint a miniature using the colours of your nation's flag for the majority (take that, Japan and Canada!). What are your thoughts, folks? This is your community, so let me know what seems about right! No matter what, I look forward to painting alongside you all next year. Caedrus.

    Malifaux, Ama No Zako painted showcase video. 360 degrees view. Painted this a year ago. But it got posted on YouTube just now.

    @Franchute: First of all, my enormous thanks to Franchute for organising this challenge this year. Second, I have been considering organising the challenge for 2019, albeit with a few small changes. To that end, I have asked Wyrd if they would support a monthly prize. Basically, if they support the challenge, I'll happily run it (if Franchute is happy to hand over, and the community thinks I can do it!). So, I'm waiting on their reply. If they give me their support, then I might open a new enrolment thread. I hope that's all ok! Caedrus.

    And now, finally, the master to lead the last couple of models - Pandora! I tried a slightly different colour scheme from the "official" one. Green and purple like the rest of my Neverborn. And purple hair instead of red. I also painted the ghostly energy coming out of the box blue to add some more contract. The colours have more depth in reality than shows up on this photo. And her friend Candy: When seeing pictures of this model I didn't realise just how tiny it really is. The size made it somewhat difficult to paint, but it turned out OK in the end I think.

    Hey Wyrdos, In the recent update of "Bad Things Happen," a Login button was implemented. There have been questions about the requirements for Login Credentials and if logging in is needed. This button is a placeholder for future functionality that is under development. There are no Login Credentials at this point, and Login is not needed for any of the app's features. The "Bad Things Happen" App has more to come that we're excited to see revealed in future updates, some of which will use that login feature. When the placeholder button becomes more than a placeholder, we'll make sure the information on the requirements for Login Credentials available to all. Apologies for any confusion the placeholder button may have caused!

    Hi, I would like to share my up to date buildings and table elements. Further on I will show some of the steps on how I make the stuff. I’m trying to build a semi-modular city board which transports the nightly atmosphere of the Malifaux artwork (chapeaux dear artists!). Even though it might be to dense or a bit unpractical (“Lets walk up this tower [for the view]; it’s only 30” up!”) I want to build a “downtown”. After all, in games, I will not need to place all the terrain pieces :-) Hope You like it (first pictures will follow soon). Regards, Timo

    Also keen to know when this might drop! Hoping to use some of the models in my alt Ulix crew 😁

    @FranchuteThanks for your efforts this year, well done! @Caedrus Thanks for picking up the mantle and running 2019. Nice ideas for the changes. I'm also stealing your format of listing a single model and trying for extra stretch goals with what I paint each month. Don't think I'll keep up with your efforts but I like the idea of the system so sign me up for 2019 as a "minion" please.

    20 motor scouts is probably a fun counter to eel spam, if you know the other player is gonna do that. Every hit is a pin token. See who ends the game with the most single model units!

    Two reasons for me, one in that they were a forgiving army that could pitch into melee, (something that was important to me) *trigger warning* The second being that it's just so damn refreshing to have a non-European/american faction that isn't 'savage'. Most Asian/African/Latino based factions always seem to backwards and archaic against their high-tech European foes, Absyinna was a surprising change in which the models still look African but the tech looks both advanced and practical. Even Malifaux's own Ten Thunders can't claim this and it was a huge draw to have something on my shelf that looked so different and yet still badass. *trigger warning* I've kept the faction because of all the bonuses that come with the alliegence. Free Assets? Free Cards? More Free Cards and a free shot with the Adjunct? Yes. Please.
