    Unboxing Malifaux - 'Lampads'

    Ouch... those look a right pain to assemble. However, they are much better models than I realized. I wasn't planning on getting any, but those are really nice models.... hmmm....

    Gen Con 2018 Coverage

    Hmmm. That is the only thing I've heard so far that makes me a bit worried. I'll have to wait and see how it feels if I get into the playtest.

    Considering how many other things are changing, there is no sure way to know unless someone can confirm from one of the devs. Maybe someone that went to GenCon?

    They usually have a display case up with unreleased stuff. Just hoping for some of that, but they may not have brought anything this year with M3E and ToS taking so much time.

    Are there any new or sneak peak models out yet? Maybe a look at some of the new masters? I can't seem to find any pictures from GenCon of Malifaux besides the cards posted here.

    It also looks like it's a 1 action? So you could move and then Charge, meaning threat ranges can be vastly larger at the expense of 1 attack. That could really change things up quite a bit.

    Any new models on display yet? Would love pics of those. Thanks for the pics of the card! Anyone notice the Jackelope says 'Flip' instead of 'Stat' on it's actions?

    Third Edition is Coming!!

    Well....fast..but quality. I understand being tentative on some purchases, but I still plan on buying Little Gassers, Grave Diggers, and a couple of other things as I like the models. If I don't end up having the right master it may kick me into gear to look into that master in the future

    Third Edition is Coming!!

    Fair enough, but nothing to suggest massive amounts of models will be gone - for example Collodi's puppets. You may not have Collodi anymore, but I imagine that most of his normal crew will still be usable by other masters and may have new roles as a result.

    Third Edition is Coming!!

    The only things listed as being in the Dead Man's Hand (gray area) are those individual masters (and likely their totems). There has been nothing to imply that any other models will be going away or not be playable. They are likely getting shifted around and redesigned to fit better with other crews and masters. I can totally see puppets becoming a Zoirada thing now, or maybe they will be included in the Versatile models that was mentioned and available for all masters without extra cost. I think it's way too early to worry about anything disappearing other than the very specific masters that have been mentioned. And this coming from someone that came to Malifaux for Nicodem. I played him exclusively for some time, but I understand he was a pain to design around. I'm very hopeful to see what the new masters offer.

    Most of your purchases are likely still perfectly valid as well. As far as we know only Collodi has gone missing. The rest of your models will likely have new and interesting synergy with other masters. It's certainly frustrating to be told your new master may not be available for competitive play for now (still available for most regular tourneys and casual play though), but there is no indication that all the puppet models are now useless. You may have to look at other Masters though. Until the beta starts and you can see the new stat lines and rules it's hard to know exactly what's going to happen with your current models.

    Nicodem Players - Dealing with the nerf

    I can understand the frustration, but really? Four models gone (for now) and so the whole game is ruined? I still have faith in seeing what M3 will bring, plus it could be that all those master come back in a future book. I started with Nicodem and am sad to see him go, but exited by the new masters and a fresh coat of paint on all the other models and rules. If the game didn't change it would stagnate over time. And it may very well be a year or so before they release the new edition officially - we don't have a timeline yet.

    Nicodem Players - Dealing with the nerf

    Do you really think a 2dmg Blast is really going to make that big a difference? He's always had this available and it's never been a go to for players. Decay is really used for healing your own guys and if you happen to get splash damage on the enemy great, but it's not why you cast Decay. If he had a way to up the damage a bit then maybe I'd see a use case and that could actually give Nicodem a new way to be played. Maybe in a future upgrade....

    Nicodem Players - Dealing with the nerf

    I don't disagree in theory, but I've found it can get pretty boring to play that way (and I've often used the Fast Spam with the Malifaux Child and Toshiro). It can be effective and a huge help at times no doubt, but I've never heard that it was a top tier strategy at any tournaments. It also gets boring fast. My Master, the model most players really get into in a faction, gets a turn and just hands out three AP to other models and he's done.... Not very exciting when you've got Masters that actually do something themselves which feels more thematic and fun to play. He's definitely going to play differently now, that's for sure. A Fast spam list might still be effective for him allowing his crew to get more done while he buffs them in his bubble.
