    Hi all! I had this M3E crew-building web tool available in the closed beta, but when the open beta began, the card format changed a bit so it took some work to get it updated. But now that it's ready, I'm debuting it with the larger audience here! It's a web page that works on desktop and mobile for building M3E crews. I try to keep the cards up-to-date with each week's release, though it sometimes takes a day or two. You can authenticate with gmail in order to store your saved crews in Google Drive AppData (access to app-specific info only, no access to docs, spreadsheets, etc). This will also allow you to share crews between devices. Otherwise you'll have to re-build each time you visit the site. You can also use the Card Search page to match a text query against all the cards in the game! Want to know every model and upgrade that references "Terrifying?" Search for the text and find out! Hope it helps! I more than welcome any feedback you have, you can respond here or message me directly. Thanks for any help in testing it out, and enjoy!

    The latest update is now available! And with that, we’re excited to announce that this will be the last update before we get ready to launch Malifaux Third Edition. We will be keeping the Open Beta forums available for a time to help catch grammar issues and other minor mistakes, but there will not be any more overhauls done to Crews or models. We will be still making some slight adjustments in the background before we hit the print button, but these changes will be a matter of changing a stat number here or there, and not rewriting or restructuring how a Keyword works as we have done in the last few weeks. We want to thank everyone who has participated in the Open Beta for providing us with mountains of feedback. If it wasn’t for your criticisms, ideas, contributions, and debates, Malifaux Third Edition wouldn’t be in the state it’s in today. This community is so staggeringly amazing, and it was a humbling experience to have collaborated alongside all of you during this edition's development. So, what does the future entail? Well, on our side of things, it’s time for us to get working on the final product. As for our community, once we have the printable versions of the cards made for all of our models and upgrades, we will be making them and the rules available for free on our website. For now, we encourage you to use the beta files to get some games in, as you won’t see major changes between now and then. In the next few weeks, we’ll be providing you all with the roadmap of Malifaux Third Edition’s future. Some of you in the Closed Beta probably already have an idea or two of what that might look like, but we’ve intentionally not talked about some of those topics in an attempt to not shake the focus of the Open Beta. Additionally, we will be launching another playtest soon and implore everyone who enjoyed the Open Beta process to join up with us again, as we’ll need as much help as we can get to make sure that Gaining Grounds Season One is the best it can be. Thanks again!

    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. If you see anything that needs to be added, please add a comment to this thread with a link to the post. Q:When will the Beta start? A: "We likely won't be doing much with the Beta until after Gencon." A2: "The playtest isn't beginning until after next week." (Aug-9) Q: When is M3E releasing? A: "We're not announcing a public date at this time, as we want to ensure that we have the option of extending playtest if  needed. Our first priority is to ensure that M3E is fun and balanced, and some wiggle room will help us in that regard. So apologies that I can't give you a fixed date at this time!" Q: What's up with the missing masters (Ramos/Lilith/Collodi/Nico)? A:"All of these Masters (and their totems) will receive updated stat cards in M3E in a special "Dead Man's Hand" pack. By default, they will not be tournament legal (due to being absent in the story), but an option will exist to allow these "Dead Man's Hand" Masters to be played in tournaments that wish to allow it." Q: Are the Dead Man's Hand cards going to be balanced? A: "They will be balanced for competitive play." Q: What's up with thematic crews? A: "Without going into too much detail just yet, hiring within a Master's keyword will be affordable and will provide options that reinforce that Master's central theme. If you want to go outside a Master's keyword, you'll be able to do so within your faction, albeit at a minor penalty." Q: Will there be models that all masters in a faction can hire without penalty? A: "Most models will have keywords, but every faction also has some 'Versatile" models, such as the various Effigies and Emissaries. Versatile models can be hired within their faction without penalty." Q: Are mercs still going to be a thing? A: "Mercenaries in the M2E sense of the word are going away." Q: Will M3E still have upgrades? A: "In general, there will be fewer but more meaningful upgrades." Q: I didn't see Paralyze on the list of conditions, is gone from the game? A: "... Paralyze is gone." Q: What is the symbol in the text for the Stunned condition? A: "the symbol for Bonus Actions (essentially, your M2E (0) Actions)." Q: Will rules for Avatars be in M3E? A: "There are currently no plans to carry Avatars forward into 3rd edition." Q: Will the app be required to play M3E? A: "I just don't like the idea of making the app mandatory." Q: Are the Elevation rules going to change? A: “Elevation rules will indeed work differently than in M2E.” Q: Are model counts in crews going to change? A: “... I’d expect average model counts to come down slightly.“ Q: Will M3E have a new timing chart for duels? A: "Yup." Q: Can models have multiple key words? A: "Absolutely, though it doesn't happen all that often." Q: What is the penalty for hiring models that don't share a keyword with a crew's leader? A: "Hiring a model that does not share a keyword with your leader is at +1 Cost." Q: Do masters still get a Soulstone cache? How many Soulstones will a crew start with? A: "Cache is no longer a thing; you start with Soulstones equal to the amount you did not spend during hiring." Q: Does each crew get a master and totem for free and have 50SS to hire? A: "That is correct." [AWP] Q: Will promo models be getting updated cards? A: "Yes, all the way back to first edition." [AWP] Q: Will feedback on the new card size make you guys change your mind about it? A: “The new card size is here to stay. Bringing it up in the Beta won't really change that.” [AWP] Q: How does summoning interact with the new pass tokens. A: “When a model is Summoned, the opponent gains a Pass Token.” [AWP] Q: Are the rules for shooting into engagement going to be changing? A: "Yup." Q: Will cheating be permitted on negative flips? A: "Nope." Q: The Judge is going to be okay, right? A: "The Judge was totally killed." [AWP] signifies that the link is to A Wyrd Place Facebook post. Rules Reference Card:

    Hi When the open beta came out, I was missing a good overview of which models had specific keywords, and which models had specific abilities. So I set out to build a digital tool that could help me with this. I shared it with my Danish Malifaux community, and they all asked for various upgrades (like crew-builder, printing, sharing, cross device usage etc.). So it grew. A lot. Now that it's a month old, I feel like the international community should know about it also. So here you go: https://m3e.hong-crewet.dk Some if it's main features: * Filters and Sorting. * Crew-Builder (where you can even ignore building-rules, if you want to test some house rule or other crazy ideas) * Print in M2E og M3E card styles. You print your crew, but combine with the ability to ignore crew-building rules, you can print any combination of models. * Works offline. You can even install it on your phones desktop. * Save your Crews, Filter/List options Setups and list of Owned/Painted/Favourites to the cloud so that you can use them across any number of devices. * Share your crew. Either threw a link that opens the tool with your crew, or copy/paste the formatted text to anywhere. I hope you like it. Thanks.

    Hey everyone, So that you are not surprised tomorrow, I wanted everyone to know that we will not be uploading an update on January 30th(boo!). There is a good reason for the delay, though. We are making some major changes to some of the least favorite Crews, whether they're not working or they're thematically off. Here are some of the Keywords that will be receiving adjustments (some minor, some major): Redchapel Performer Frontier Oni Monks Wastrel Revenant Transmortis Kin Family Big Hat Savage Nightmare Retainer/Ancestor Forgotten We're also making changes to individual models and rules clarifications, as well. So what does this mean? Well, there will still be an update this week, but we won't be posting it until Thursday, January 31st (yay!). Thanks for understanding!

    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. We learned our lessons there and worked with professionals instead of enthusiasts or quite bluntly, folks talking out their asses and not delivering. For those hoppin' and hollerin' about the number of books and being forced to purchase and that this is an outright money grab - well, you are entitled to your opinion of course. That being said, the rules, and cards, in multiple languages, are going to be available 100% free. You don't need to spend a dime in the least if you don't wish in order to transition to M3E. Lastly, if we had crammed everything into one book, that would have been spendy - not to mention heavy enough to bludgeon someone to death with.

    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, and fine tuning numbers are our targets this time around. There are still a few crews and models that need some final tweaks, so if you have more feedback, we’re still listening. We want to hear your thoughts on your favorite (and least favorite) characters before we officially launch Third Edition. So, for those who have been rigorously playtesting our game, now is your chance to share your thoughts and enthusiasm with the rest of the community. Those NDAs that you signed? Consider them lifted. Let us know where you think M3E stands and what you think it’ll take to bring it across the finish line. Henchmen, keep a close eye on the super-secret Henchmen forum in regards to running M3E events and tournaments. We’ll have some special announcements for you folks in the next few days. That’s it from us! We’ve got to hunker down and iron out those wrinkles before next Wednesday. We’ll have more info for you at that time. See you then!

    Clementine regarded the frog with suspicion. It was getting rather tedious searching for someone to sweep her away from her glamorous yet humdrum life. "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

    Hey everyone, Changing from one edition to another isn't always an easy thing. Everyone has their own perspective and opinion about how something should work, based on previous experience or expectations. Because we all have a passion for this game, the chances of getting excited or heated are heightened. Disagreements will occur. We absolutely encourage constructive conversations to root out problems, but there is a fine line between a debate and an argument. We ask that you think before you type. Treat others with respect. We do not - and will not - tolerate name calling, insults, or any other forms of blatant toxicity on our forums. Matt, myself, and our awesome moderators can't be everywhere at once. If you experienced or witnessed maliciousness in the forums, please report it to us. Once we receive the report, we'll take a close look and take the appropriate action, if necessary. If you have been reported for rudeness to another player and action is required, you will receive a warning. If you have been reported after receiving a warning and additional action is required, you will be banned from the forums until at least the Open Beta is completed (possibly longer based on the report). That's it from me. Now let's get back to playtesting.

    Hi!, I'm new around these parts and wanted to put my 2 cents in. To give you some background and my gamer credentials, I have been playing Miniature wargames since the 80's. I have always had a heavy focus on Warhammer, and the Games Workshop properties, though I have played games from other companies, like Warlord, and CMON. At my favorite, almost too far away local games store (giga-bites, here in Marietta, Ga.) my buddy stumbled upon the Malifaux models and went ape shit over the aesthetic. I can't say I blame him, I have appreciated the models and loved the feel of the artwork of Malifaux for years, though I knew no one else who played so I never got to play it, and therefore never collected the models etc..... Fast forward to shortly before the M3E Open Beta was announced, and I was gearing up to play my first game with a couple friends who wanted to get into it with me. We decided to tackle the M3E ruleset instead of hammering out 2nd edition and learning 3rd later on when it comes out. With all that being said, I wanted to give my perspective on what it is to play M3E without ANY prior Malifaux experience. NOW FOR THE GOOD PART. 1. The Rule book. I am not harping on any grammar or spelling, I also know and understand this is NOT a polished and completed rulebook. Overall, I think the rulebook is pretty darn good, my only complaints are two things, a.) It feels disjointed, Some of the different rules we have been looking for seem to be mentioned in certain places, like I have had to look up three different things and areas to figure out how to resolve one action or ability. I know some of this can't be avoided but these are my impressions. I assume some of this will be fixed in the final version. Overall not anything that would keep me from playing. Maybe I'm dumb but one thing that tripped us up, was the non-passive abilities, like Pandoras defensive ability, it shows DF / WP (tome) and it confused the ever loving shit out of me as to what that meant. Should it be read as a thing that triggers whenever the model takes a defensive or willpower test and gets a tome?, does it trigger on a defensive duel and the models affected need to make a willpower test? Eventually we reasoned out what was supposed to happen, however an explanation of how to read that or an example of it being used would have been awesome. b.) The end of that last one leads me to my next thing, I feel like a lot of the rulebook was written for people with a grasp of how Malifaux already plays, not someone coming in new. This may alienate new players, and cause for some heartache in the end. Some of the abilities and mechanics are not fully explained, in my opinion. (Like summoning, I am still a bit confused wether you have to hold models off to the side to summon after hiring them? OR do you just get to summon them in and they aren't costed in with your crew when you buy?) I get the mechanics of how to summon them in, doing the test etc... just the setup to be able to summon isn't explained in my opinion. 2. Encounters. I love Malifaux for it's super narrative, super characterful feel. It's honestly an awesome and involved world and story and I love that. I love the Strats & Schemes method of encounters and getting everything ready. I enjoy the fact that it's a miniatures game where it's not just "hold an objective, or kill something" The game genuinely feels as though you are doing different things. That being said, they feel cumbersome. Clunky, even a little grindy. To a new player it is a CHORE to figure out the system and what in the hell you're supposed to be doing to win the models. Maybe I'm dumb, but it took a hot minute to know what to do with the Schemes, the Strats are more straightforward but overall, I lump them together. 3. Overall, I find this to be an awesome, challenging and fun game. I have enjoyed trying to figure things out with my friends as there is not an experienced player amongst us and we are trying to figure it all out from scratch. If my opinions seem overly critical I assure you, they are not. I just communicate that way. If none of my concerns are addressed in the final 3rd edition rulebook I wouldn't be let down and would continue to play and promote this game. I have been covering our experiences in my podcast, "The Beerhammer Podcast" and would love to even have someone from Wyrd on for an interview about 3rd edition. Thank you for your time in reading this.

    Happy Monday Wyrdos! As you probably know GenCon is coming up soon. It's less than a month away as a matter of fact. After winning the Homefront global campaign, Gremlins were getting the next Nightmare box and we are ready to show it off. Enjoy the Nightmare Ulix crew.

    Hah .... no. They aren't all going to be gold gilded lay flat hard-back books. Doesn't even get close to that price. 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.

    Ok so I love the gremlin faction and recently went to a charity tournament that had 28 players . I dressed in dungarees wore a straw hat and boots and carried a 🐖 under my arm (yes I'm that mad) I ran the following list in 2 games just for fun 50 SS Gremlins Crew Somer Teeth Jones + 4 Pool - Family Tree (2) - Can O' Beans (1) - Do Over (1) Skeeter (2) Skeeter (2) Slop Hauler (5) Piglet (4) Piglet (4) Piglet (4) Piglet (4) Bayou Gremlin (3) Bayou Gremlin (3) Bayou Gremlin (3) Bayou Gremlin (3) Bayou Gremlin (3) Bayou Gremlin (3) Bayou Gremlin (3) Game 1 strats✓=schemes I took Deployment: Flank Deployment (11) Strategy: Ply for Information (Rams) Schemes: * Surround Them (Rams) * Covert Breakthrough (1)✓ * Undercover Entourage (5) * Search the Ruins (8) ✓ * Public Demonstration (13) Game 2 strats Deployment: Close Deployment (14) Strategy: Symbols of Authority (Masks) Schemes: * Punish the Weak (Masks) * Set Up (3) * Hold Up Their Forces (4) * Take Prisoner (9)✓ * Recover Evidence (11)✓ I won both games and my opponents didn't know how to stop me . Yes I summoned as and when my numbers dwindled but out activating my opponent played a big roll I won 9v4 game one and 9v7 game two So going into the 3rd game the strats were very killy and being in 5th place overall I wanted to win so changed to a more serious but still fun list for game3 50 SS Gremlins Crew Mah Tucket + 4 Pool - Manifest Destiny (1) - Pit Traps (1) - Stilts (1) Old Cranky (4) Trixibelle (8) Rami LaCroix (7) - Dirty Cheater (1) Swine-Cursed (7) Survivor (4) Survivor (4) Survivor (4) Survivor (4) Survivor (4) Game 3 strats Deployment: Corner Deployment (10) Strategy: Public Executions (Tomes) Schemes: * Eliminate the Leadership (Doubles) * Dig Their Graves (2) * Inescapable Trap (6) * Take Prisoner (9)✓ * Vendetta (12)✓ I won the 3rd game 7 to 4 finished in 2nd place (won a root beer whiskey Golem)and helped raise £500 for charity . I honestly believe you don't have to run set models in set lists to have fun and even do well. Sorry for the long post but wanted to post this being as everyone is moaning about the errata on Sandeep and nicodem and gremlins are just that much fun whoever and whatever you run

    Let's see if I can answer a few questions. Yes, the goal is to have all distributors sorted in advance so that they can get the product to retailers by the 28th of June, or as close as possible to that. Naturally, any number of things can go to shit between here and there, but we're looking good unless something pops up. Overseas and outside the US distributors get their product sent out first, then the US - that being said, each distributor outside the US picks its own manner in which to ship product and we are not responsible for any delays on their part (awaiting other orders from manufacturers so that it can all go on one boat for a cheaper price, etc, etc). Then of course if customs decides to get cute or weather decides to wreck a port or some other stuff. Outside of stuff like that, we're looking good. Not everything is being resculpted - not even close. We will be updating/redoing crew boxes as time goes on, some sooner than others, particularly if there is a large change to their box layout as at the end of the day, time to cut/repackage/touch everything and the chance for screwup kinda outweighs just getting a new mold done. Some boxes will be getting a whole makeover. Others will have bits and pieces of it. People keep tossing about the idea that these molds are wearing out and thus the reason for XYZ - lemme tell you - we would have to sell a LOOOOOOT more before these things blow out. We will be updating our Upcoming Releases, Retailer section and a few other things here over the next week to get additional information out, advertising images, etc. Rules and cards will be released online for free. You can download them and print for your own purposes. They are not and will not be allowed to be tied into custom programs/apps - online or offline - nor for other folks to exploit direct sales from (printing cards out and selling them). They'll be some language letting you know what you can and can't do - we're pretty easy with it, but as with anything, some folks will happily ignore for their own wants/sake. Drivethrurpg and Wargamesvault will have the cards available as a print on demand service and you'll have the option of picking up one card, whole factions, by keyword - etc. We'll try to make it as simple as possible. When the translations are available as well (hopefully at launch or shortly thereafter), these will also be placed online for POD. They are actively seeking a printer/partner in Europe and beyond, so if you have suggestions for them (contact them, not me) feel free, otherwise yes, all orders from there will be printed and shipped from the US. Special orders, either directly from us, or from your retailer through distribution is available both inside the US and outside. That being said, it is only for boxes that have been combined or changed up in a manner that say only a single new miniature has been placed within a box (we'll use Alphonse for instance) and the only way you could get it would be to purchase the box all over again. We're not interested in jacking over our customers like that - but we're also not going to go in and allow this for each and every model in the line as that's frankly entirely too much work and ultimately self-defeating. Also why there is a time limit on this. If you're going to want a Wanyudo for your Reva, you'll need to purchase the box - we'll not be breaking that one up. Small rulebook - we keep getting asked about it, so very likely we'll take a serious look at it after the launch. Wouldn't be overly difficult to manage.

    Hey Wyrdos, We wanted to take a bit of time to discuss communication, both from us and from the community. We know the community has felt like Wyrd has been a bit silent. We have been, and we know that. The design team wears many hats – one such hat is for our community. Lately, our hats have put our focus on The Other Side’s release and making sure that Malifaux Third Edition is fun and exciting for years to come. Our games and worlds should grow alongside our community. We hear that you want more communication from us, and we are working on new ways of providing just that. You can expect to hear more on those plans in the near future. We also continue to have a variety of content such as Wallpaper Wednesday, Breachside Broadcast, painting competitions etc. that the community can enjoy. We appreciate the feedback we have received. Even if you don’t see immediate change, know that we are listening. If you are concerned that you aren’t being heard, you can contact us directly via the Contact Form (https://www.wyrd-games.net/contact). Any of the feedback we receive through there is heard and discussed with the relevant people. As we continue to work on our own communication, we ask that your feedback between each other, and to us, remains constructive. If you find yourself really upset about something, that Contact Form can be a great way to have your concerns directly heard. Additionally, we understand the community wants to engage with the designers, hear their thoughts, and see what’s happening behind closed doors on a regular basis. We would love to see more of that, too! Currently, the best way to do this is to engage in our beta program, which has applications that open periodically throughout the year. In our betas, you will directly interact with our design team on a daily basis. Make sure you take the opportunity to join the next beta and help shape the games you love. - The Wyrd Team

    THE END IS NIGH!!! In all seriousness, as the Beta has drawn to a close and we are prepping for release, we are going to be adjusting the forums accordingly. With that, the Open Beta Forum will be closing and everything within it hidden from the world. The forums will close when we get back to the office after Memorial Day on Tuesday, May 28. In the meantime, we encourage you to continue your discussions of Malifaux in the appropriate forums and subforums. Again, we want to thank everyone for participating in the Open Beta as it truly has made M3E a much better game and we couldn't have done it without all of your feedback and support.

    What's up Wyrdos? I came in this morning to find that we've run out of coffee pods and Waldo's acting like civilization as we know it has ended. He's flying around with some of my color-shift paint sprayed on his mouth while spouting off nonsense like "I drink, I sleep, I drink again!" and has submitted a proposal that all office personnel issues be solved via Thunderdome. It would solve some problems… Aaaaanyway, I suspect he took one look at this week's feature of Georgy and Olaf and thought they were on to something. Georgy and Olaf are some of the newest additions to the Big Hat Keyword, and this two-in-one beat down duo shows that teamwork really does make the dream work. The Ability Piggyback Ride exemplifies that Georgy is head and shoulders above his competition by being able to take Projectile Actions while engaged. Demise (I’m Done With This) allows Georgy to live, die, and live again, albeit as a Bayou Gremlin (but don’t tell Olaf that). The hits keep coming from Georgy and Olaf with Staggering Punch's Trigger, Quick Shot, allowing for a free Projectile Action, even if there’s someone in their face. If Olaf’s brass knuckles don’t leave a mark, that combo definitely will. The Action's second Trigger, Separated from the Pack, allows for another Melee Attack if your target has no other enemy models near it, which is exactly how Georgy prefers to be positioned - far enough away from the rest of the Gremlins so he can declare that he’s top hat. The aptly named "Who Runs Gremlin-Town?!" allows Georgy and Olaf to bolster your Crew's Minions, but don't let Som'er (or whoever your Crew Leader is) catch sight of the pair when they’re shouting out this Bonus Action. The last thing Georgy and Olaf want is their hat shot off by a boozed-up Gremlin with a toothy grin (or toothless, depending on who’s asking) thinking someone other than Lenny is trying to take control over the Bayou. This week, in addition to checking out what the model will look like on the table, we also have another mobile wallpaper for you! Check it out below!

    @Athiko - really like the use of blue on these, it adds a nice element of contrast to pale skin. @Chou - nice, clean paintjob on the family. And definitely get a LED-light whitebox, can't go wrong with it! @OctaBit - nice selection, the Warped are my favorites, really like these models! @bedjy - the fur on Tanuki looks excellent and the bright colors you've used work really well there. The diorama looks great too! @Phinn - that actually looks like a mini diorama, great job! @Kimberly - nice looking terrain you have there, I'm sure it will draw many looks at Adepticon @Caedrus - I think many Polish painters paint this very special kind of water with some extra % in it, this may be the key here! And you can add 24ss to my pledge this month :) And I really like your Acolytes, blue isn't easy to work with on larger flat surfaces but their cloaks look great here! @Nikodemus - nice highlights on red skin, like the contrast with black spider body. @Stranglelove - Rhino is my favorite here by far, great model and you've done it justice with excellent brushwork. @emiba - looking really good, two more day to finish so keep at it ;) @Franchute - the base looks great, as always, now just finish the mini :) @lusciousmccabe - both the base and mini look very good, nice and clean paintjob. @prof_bycid - love the vivid shades of green/yellow, they suit this model so well! @wobbly_goggy - sweet paintjob on the Fire Golem. Working all those flames up can be a daunting task (been there!) but you've made it shine ;) Once again, I'm more at home than I'd like to and currently going through third antibiotic cycle. The only good thing is I had a bit more time so I finished four more minis for extra 24ss. More pics on the blog: http://www.whatthefaux.net/2019/03/razorspine-rattlers.html

    Here is my Diorama, that took me quite some time !Nk But it was meant to be a gift, so I'm not sure I'll be able to use it in my monthly pledge... Anyway, I should be able to paint several things, enough to end the month with my pledge. Wish me luck !

    My pledge for February is to finish the male Cyclops Here are some promised WIP pictures. The skin colour is going to be greenish blue with offwhite on belly, chin, inner thights and arms and buttocks. Knees, elbows and fingers are going to have red tint to make them visually more interesting and red mouth should draw attention toward the face Detail of the face. Still some work to do Chin, ears, ice "horns" etc. And here is how the ice on the whole miniature (and crew) is going to look like. The process is little bit time consuming but I feel like it is worth

    ...and so....my January pledge is complete....and for the first time ever in my history of Challenge attempts I'm posting hours before the deadline...not only that...for the first time ever I managed to paint way more than my pledge...quite simply I had more fun painting these TOS figures probably more than anything else I've ever done...so...I completed not only a Raving Madman and three of The Warped that I showed in my WIP but an ENTIRE fireteam !!.... @Caedrus True confession...sorry but I have no idea how many SS this works out at but am happy in the knowledge it's loads more than I pledged

    Wyrdos, As some of you may already know, Mason has decided to pursue his own endeavors. Here at Wyrd, we’re all thankful for the work that he’s contributed to our games over the years. Whether in lore or design, his involvement added unparalleled depth and nuance to our worlds, and we’re grateful for the impact he had upon Through the Breach, Malifaux, and The Other Side. We wish him the absolute best as he moves forward in his career. On a personal note, I learned a lot from Mason in the two years that I spent working with him. I’ll miss his insight and humor around the office, but I’m excited to see (and play!) the great things made by him in the future. Cheers to you, bud. Thanks for everything.

    My contribution this month for a total of 14SS is two Goryo that have haunted my work top for way too long....notwithstanding being something of a nightmare to construct I have to say that even though the Neverborn are my faction these are one of my favourite sculpts in all of Malifaux....getting a photo was hard work as there is so much going on with them and I already posted the bases on their own so figured I won't clog the place up with a million shots...but I enjoyed painting them...the Japanese writing on the tombstones makes up the start of the phrase "My name is Revenge"....and I've finished ahead of time !.,..have now dug out an Izamu lurking in a box that I picked up and started ages ago - feeling a bit inspired so will try and finish him as well before the month is out

    @Caedrus finished my Tengu & Manos for a total of 4+9= 13 stones. I bought this guy used, already assembled. Wasn't cleaned very well and I don't like cleaning Wyrd minis after they're built. Too delicate. His posing also makes some areas a bit clumsy to paint, under the helmet and such. For these reasons I mainly focused on parts you can see. He's got hair and eyes painted but not to a standard I usually prefer. Not like you can ever see his face Idea was to paint white cloth but after "finishing" it once I went back and did some thin washes on the sleeves to get a bit more interest there. They were a bit too monotone for my taste. Not sure I can call it white anymore. Looks nice though, that's important. Compositionally, I'm not very fond of my work here. I like how I painted all the individual parts but that pink magical bird just doesn't fit in with the rest. Doesn't ruin it for me but eh, could've done better. But sometimes I get urges. I open up that bottle of Fluorescent magenta from and it's going on a model even if it has no business being thereI'm sure some of you know that feeling. Can't wait to get my Yan Lo box built & painted so I can field this guy. Excited! All told a very cool mini and I'm happy I did it. Was fun.

    Hi everybody! Feels like it's been a crazy month. Really glad for the long weekend, and it made me run out of excuses to finish my Kirai box set crew. Here they are! I also painted some zombies but haven't figured out their basing yet: Happy Easter, all! Looking forward to going through all the submissions this month.

    @wobbly_goggy - nice paintjob. You could try taking pics using some kind of background, even a piece of paper. The way it is now, the mini kind of blends with what's in the back. @Athiko - Great work all around. I really like what you did with Carrion Effigy, the Osl adds a nice vibrant touch there. The Exorcists look very nice too, lovely blending on the cloaks though I'd add some dirt to the bottom there. @Purple Mist - that definitely looks intriguing. The thing about colorshift paints is that taking pics of minis painted with them is really hard as they work well when you rotate the mini and look at it from different angles. @Franchute - love the armor color, very nice, smooth highlights there and the weathering looks top notch too. The "dirty" metallics also work very well here. @Boomstick - nice productivity and some really epic conversions going on there @Polar43 - nice work on the gamin and I really like the way you've arranged terrain on such a small base. I also really like the vibrant skin tone you're using for your Gremlins. @Diddick - one again I have to admit that you're making these bright colors work really well on these minis. Two Myrandas bring me to 16 ss more this month, a total of 50 ss for April, more may come As always, more ppics on my blog: http://www.whatthefaux.net/2019/04/myranda-warning.html

    I've worked a bit more on Sandeep's coat this week: Then, I suddenly decided to take a break from him and paint Anna Lovelace, who I might use for a tournament this weekend. Unfortunately she got decapitated in the process. She is a truly undead now, faithful to her faction. I then tried to hide the scar with some makeup. I hope the Guild won't notice. Anyway here she is for 9 ss:

    Hello! I haven't been very active here this month but I have done my due diligence. Apart from Kirai below I've also got a second Onryo painted, picture to follow when I get around to take one. (Thought I had but apparently not.) I'll probably go back and redo her eyes as I was working in poor light and for some reason, an unsteady hand. The shears are my first attempt at NMM, so I'll likely practice and get back to that as well. If anyone has a good YouTube tutorial on NMM, that'd be swell. Cheers!

    @Diddick - love the colors on this one. So completely different than my "gritty" approach when it comes to undead minis but painted consistently to a very high level. @muraki - such cool minis and I like the bright colors you've used here. These are by far the coolest versions in the range. They eyes seem a bit off but this still works in terms of Manga-like overall aesthetics @Caedrus - nice start on the conversion. I envy people skilled enough to tackle complex projects with GS. I can basically only do gap-filling and hair/fur sculpting. The NMM on containers looks great and the blades are just amazing! I've finished the Cerberuses so together with 16ss for two Samurai I am now at 34ss for April. I decided to use blue for the most part as I've always struggled with this color on larger surfaces. It was a little easier here as there is some fur texture on the main body to serve as guidance. I started with some general highlights on the body, making sure to leave enough dark blue in the recesses. Following that, I kept adding numerous thin brushstrokes in gradually brighter colors to build up the fur texture. It was a very lengthy and tedious process but it was a good practice for sure. I added some touches of brown/dark red and glazes of light blue and green to keep it more "natural" (as much as this word can be used to talk about blue fur of a three headed Tiger). I also thought that blue would nicely contrast with a predominantly green base. I'd like to start on Myranda but I'm still waiting for the paints to paint her skin to look like a Native-American. As always, more pictures on my blog http://www.whatthefaux.net/2019/04/tyger-tyger-burning-bright.html

    WIP time.....still a way to go but main colours laid down...AND....in an effort to keep the skin tones more or less equivalent across all three fireteams I have managed to make a start on the other six members of The Warped....the great thing about the TOS figures is that aside the great sculpts that are fun to work on the fact that I am now working on ten figures simultaneously is nothing short of groundbreaking for me....it is also making me approach them differently to just taking on two or three Malifaux characters...so colour me happy....for now from Cult Of The Burning Man - on the left a Raving Madman and then three of The Warped
