  1. Penny Dreadful series is the closest thing to Malifaux I've seen lately.
  2. The sculpt for action Hannah looks very unappealing. Do not want.
  3. The lack of Wave 2 cards makes Malifaux a bit of a hard sell. Look at these shiny cards! Oh sorry you can't use these other models unless you want to use these dodgy print outs and don't even think about Avatars.
  4. This week I will again be holding the Hobby Hour event at SMG. I will be available to assist anyone with their miniatures should they require it. The event will be starting at 10 through to 12 after which will come gaming during which I shall be supervising and demostating some crew box games of Malifaux.
  5. As an ongoing service to the dedicated gamers of SMG I will be introducing the Hobby Hour. Normally the start time of the club is at 12pm, but with the Hobby Hour I will be opening the club earlier at 10am for anyone who wishes to come along and get some hobbying done away from the chaos and distractions of home. There is no particular mandate being enforced here, you can do some modelling, painting, repair some terrain or just hang out. Even though it is called the Hobby Hour the event will go from 10 until 12. For the forseeable future I will be running this event every time the club is meeting and will update this thread with new dates as they come up. Even though I am running this for the benefit of club members we are not adverse to new people joining us and this would be a good time for a prospective new member to meet and greet club members when they are not distracted by playing games. Shepparton Miniature Gamers Club runs every Saturday (subject to notice) and meets at the Southside Community Center located on 11 Service Street Shepparton, Victoria. 3630. There is parking on the street and the dress code is casual. We are within walking distance of several fast food chains as well as a local conveinence store.
  6. Brake fluid is chancy, one persons great result is anothers melted miniature. It all depends on the additives, Simple Green is a good product, you can also use Methylated Spirits. It also depends on the paint being used as anything that will take enamel off will also damage plastics so this is why you should always use water based acrylics. For best result take a small container and cover the miniature with your poison and close that container and weigh it down in a hot water bath. Should be ready to strip with an old tooth brush after a few hours.
  7. Great looking miniatures, but try blending the metals a little for a smoother finish. Kepp up the good work.
  8. Fantastic control with the dark cloth making it look black while not actually painting it that colour.
  9. I really like that yellow, but the "embroidary" is wyrd. On one hand you have a sweet looking dragon and then there is a cartoony mouse as if the archer is obliged to wear it because his girlfriend sewed it specially for him and he doesn't want to disappoint her.
  10. Thanks, it was a bit of a close call, I was thinking about making her up as the female Karas- But the top hat was too cool to pass up
  11. So I never liked the super skinny original Viks, but I liked the alternatives except for the super wyrd hairdo. So I decided to do something about and that something was to give them some fancy hats -
  12. I think they are a bit too big to fit on bases, they tend to crowd the miniature they are sharing the base with, but those are my aesthetics. A slightly smaller set is gravestones you find in Games Workshops undead range, but there is less variety.
  13. I have several crews and factions which burrow models from the other. My Outcast faction is pretty varied in colour with only the Friekorps sharing a colour scheme, but all of the models have a similiar basing. The Leveticus crew regular burrows models from my Resurrectionist faction so across both factions I'm using bases to tie them all together. My basing of choice is the Dragonforge Cobblestone and Urban Rubble range.
  14. Or you could use my idea of having blank counters that you can mark as you need them.
  15. With the influx of new gamers at SMG I will be running a Malifaux Demonstrations at the club for anyone interested in flipping cards instead of rolling buckets of dice. Shepparton Miniatures Club meeting are held every Saturday starting at 12pm until 9pm at the Southside Community House on 11 Service Street Shepparton. Parking is available on the street and we are within walking distance of several fast food franchises so there is no need to bring a cut lunch, unless you want to.
  16. Small games are fine for learning the mechanics, but from the point of strategies and schemes only the killer orientated ones will really be applicable and the more challenging ones that call for greater movement won't see much play. What is likely to happen in the smaller games is that it tends to degenerate into a slugging match in the center and as soon as one side gets the advantage it is very difficult to stop them. I think it is better to play the larger games where losing a model or two doesn't spell the end of your game. This isn't to say its impossible to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat though. In one game of Lady J vs. the Friekorps I still managed to pull off a win because my Lady J opponent did not pick Make Them Suffer while I did and was able to get a good VP lead despite Lady J killing all but the Librarian who ran away giving me even more VP for Bodyguard. Furthermore Lady J is a good example of a power piece that will just dominate small games, especailly if its a bad match up. Some box sets are a bad match up as well, for example McCabe boxset Vs. Friekorps saw the Friekorps just walk all over the opposition as the Wastrels seem more like interesting support pieces rather than line troops.
  17. Yeah Ratty and some other people have produced paper tokens, its just a pain cutting them out.
  18. So we use a lot of tokens now in Malifaux 2.0, some people find that irritating, but I don't think its much of a problem. Except when it comes to the tokens themselves. We need tokens for scrap, body parts, schemes and whatever else there is, and so the token numbers climb pretty fast. But I have hit on a idea that might be obvious to some people. Blank tokens, blank acylic tokens. We already use whiteboard markers to mark damage, so its not much more effort to use it to mark a blank token with an appropiate symbol or word and use that instead of pawing through a stack of tokens for the one marked body part or whatever. Just draw a blank token, mark it and move on. Seems to me an elegant solution and assuming you have enough blanks you will never be short of a particular token. The tokens available from third parties are nice, and if you want to pimp your game then I'm not stopping you, but I do believe blank tokens offer the most flexibility.
  19. In a sense we are all card counting because when we draw the hand of fate we know right away what portion of high or low cards left in the deck and face cards tend to stick in the mind as well, so when they come out we tend to remember that. But marking off the cards on a sheet as a tool of card counting is outright cheating and it would get you disqualified. I believe I may also be obliged to have my heavies take you out back and break your legs or something.
  20. Bascially you will take a colour and add increasing amounts of white to fade it. for example take a purple colour, add white and now you have a lilac this is your shade add white and now its your main colour. Add more white and now its the highlight.
  21. I like these, they have a backing and it prints out properly. You don't need to have the suits and numbers associated with the cards since you are generating that from the rulebook anyway, this is reference material so you aren't contantly flipping through the rulebook to check your scheme.
  22. That is pretty cool, hopefully she might turn up in the regular Tara box.
  23. Isn't there a variation on this? How many Malifaux children does it take to kill model X?
  24. Its a reskin of 2048, its a frustrating time waster.
