  1. 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.
  2. Happy Monday Wyrdos! We have an awesome new Monday Preview for you showing off the Undercover Agents. What are they here for? What is their purpose? Time for more speculation!

    Femme Fatale 2018 Begins!

    https://static1.squarespace.com/static/54fe412ce4b0c449f7369857/t/59281b6b1e5b6c4f1156e761/1495800686717/Wyrd_Contest_Rules_2017+(1)+(1).pdf There you go!
  4. Hey Wyrdos! Femme Fatale begins today! The gallery is already open for submissions, and we are so excited to see what the deadly ladies have for us this time around. A few reminders as we begin. - In order to maintain anonymity, the miniature cannot have been displayed in any forum elsewhere on the internet or published mediums such as magazines. All contest entries will be displayed anonymously so as to give no one person an unfair advantage (this isn’t a popularity contest) and thus there can be no signatures or watermarks on them. No announcing on forums, web pages, blogs, or any other type of medium about the type of miniature that you will be painting, nor concept or WIP photos. - The model must remain in theme! That means only the most dangerous women of the miniature world. Just like with Total Testosterone, this contest has a specific theme. Your miniature must be female and a human (or humanoid type). Again, elf, human, dwarf, cybernetically enhanced soldiers all can fit the bill. Any weapon toting, spell-wielding, powerful woman that can take your breath away, permanently, will do just fine! - You must follow all the rules as outlined by the Wyrd Painting Contest Rules. The rules can be found here. Again, questions should be directed to me (Kai). - Submissions begin on Today, July 2nd, and run until midnight EST July 22nd. Any submissions made AFTER Midnight EST July 22nd will not be considered as a part of the contest. - Voting will begin on July 23rd and end on July 26th. Voting is done by the community. The contestants are kept anonymous in order to make the process as fair as possible. - Winners will be announced on July 27th. - *NEW RULE* There should be no editing of images except for cropping or creating a collage. No adding text, logos, backgrounds etc. To participate, all you have to do is submit an image. This year, we are not doing any categories, so anything goes! All submissions will be made to a single gallery. Gallery Entry: This is where you will submit your piece. THE LINK TO THE GALLERY IS RIGHT HERE! Prizes 1st Place: $100 in Wyrd webstore credit 2nd Place: $75 in Wyrd webstore credit 3rd Place: $50 in Wyrd webstore credit 5 Randomly Selected Participants: $25 in Wyrd webstore credit Participation: Forum Badge Now, get the brushes ready and the paint flowing!

    Femme Fatale 2018 Begins!

    There is no scale requirement, nor company requirement. That is fine, submit BOTH versions and we will keep the best photo.
  8. This year's Total Testosterone saw some very manly men. It was amazing to see some of the great works that made their way into the contest. But, as with all contests, there must be a winner declared. Total Testosterone Winners 1st - TT-47 by @Cronazos 2nd - TT-50 by @Nathillien 3rd - TT-10 by @Hunter Lynch Raffle Of course, sometimes Fate likes to intervene, and for that, we had our random raffle! The following people managed to flip the Red Joker! @Fito , @Meffi , @Citames , @Shock & Awe, @Ikiwith. Congratulations to our winners and thank you to everyone who participated! Those who won a prize will be contacted shortly to get everything sorted out. You can set your brushes down and breathe....for now, because next up is Femme Fatale!
  9. Extra Extra! We got the freshest Monday previews this side of the Breach! Come and take a look at the paper hustling Newsies!
  10. Hey Wyrdos! We have a new Penny Dreadful One-Shot, The Show Must Go On, available now on DriveThruRpg. Investigate a kidnapping of famed Colette DuBois' newest headliner. But as with everything in Malifaux, Bad Things Happen.
  11. Don't want to detract from the true contenders (you guys) so we will wait until all of that is done - Kai

    Volunteers Wanted - GenCon

    A reminder that we are still looking for volunteers! Come and hang out with @Kyle and help him make fun of me! Or come and defend me from him. The choice is yours but only if you come volunteer!
  14. Happy Monday Wyrdos! Today we have a special Monday Preview of our upcoming game Bayou Bash. We are starting by showing off the Pig Rider! Bayou Bash is an upcoming racing game filled with speed, out of control animals, and good old fashioned fighting. Become a jockey in the most dangerous race this side of the Breach, doing everything you can to wow spectators and fans as you barrel toward the finish line. With an assortment of wild animals and slightly unhinged Gremlins, Bayou Bash encourages players to cut loose and move as fast as they can, only slowing down to try to send their fellow racers careening off the track. Speaking of mounts, the Pig is one of the meanest in the swamp. She is an aggressive powerhouse in the race. While some racers excel at speed or stability, the Pig uses her tusks to toss around the competition. Don’t let her pretty bow fool you! The Pig isn’t afraid to take a dip in the mud in order to push her opponents around. Be sure to check out Bayou Bash, coming later this year!
  15. Pssst. Over here. You look like someone looking for a Monday Preview....yeah we got Monday Previews. The best previews! Come take a look at these Hucksters... In Malifaux there are lots of items that are illegal, or just prohibitively expensive due to Guild taxes. The huckster doesn't care about either of those issues. They will get you what you need, but there will be a price.
  16. Happy Friday Wyrdos! We have met here every Friday to take a peek into The Other Side and what it has to offer. As we are nearing the official release, we have showcased many key components of the core books. If you missed anything or want more information it can be found at www.wyrd-games.net/the-other-side. Moving forward we will now be staggering our previews as we focus on final preparations for the initial launch. We can't wait to preview what is coming next! Quite excited to see The Other Side brought to the table soon and we thank you all for following us on this long journey. Till next time we leave you with some pretty serious faces ... wonder whats happening?
  17. Hey Wyrdos. We want to start with an apology regarding product delays and issues concerning the release schedule. It seems that we just can't catch a break over here and as soon as things seem ready we run into something and causes delays or issues. We have been hit hard by customs delays, while it looks to hopefully be sorted soon we want to take the time to give everyone a quick update. We wanted to just let you guys know and update our upcoming releases with all of you. You can see what we expect the April and May releases to be. The distributors have already been notified and told and we plan to start shipping soon for the April releases. April WYR20539 Marlena Webster $ 18.00 WYR20443 Adze $ 18.00 WYR20645 Big Brain Brin $ 11.00 WYR20248 Lampad $ 21.00 May WYR20643 Gautraeux Bokor $ 24.00 WYR20731 Gwyneth Maddox $ 11.00 WYR20540 Freikorps Engineer $ 18.00 WYR20732 Charm Warder $ 24.00 WYR20139 Guild Investigator $ 16.00 WYR20542 Benny Wolcomb $ 11.00 Hopefully, this helps you guys plan your purchases out a little bit more!
  18. Challenge....accepted!! Bring it on.
  19. If you got the email then you are definitely good to go.
  20. Happy Monday Wyrdos! We are taking a look at the other part of the Gremlins in the Backdraft Encounter box with Popcorn Turner and Cooper Jones. Take a peek! Popcorn Turner and his assistant, Cooper Jones, are prominent brewers in the southern Bayou. Popcorn brings the potent Induction ability into the Gremlin faction, increasing the damage that nearby enemies suffer from Poison by +2. Better yet, he protects friendly models from suffering Poison damage, making all of those Tri-Chi models that gain Poison while healing themselves all the more effective at staying on the table. As if Popcorn weren't borrowing enough from McMourning's playbook, he can also force models to immediately suffer damage equal to their Poison Condition, up to a maximum of five damage. When combined with the ability to light enemy models on fire and discard scheme markers to self-heal, this makes Popcorn Turner a very potent ally for the Brewmaster. Cooper Jones, meanwhile, is capable of putting a good deal of Poison onto enemies, which supports her boss quite well. Her obsession with barrels allows her to break down scheme markers to heal nearby Constructs, or she can just hide inside of a barrel to increase her Armor. Better yet, if she gets a few drinks into her, she can turn scheme markers into Whiskey Gamin... without spending a single Action. Plus, just look at that awesome blowtorch! This dynamic duo is sure to be a hit at parties, firework conventions, and in just about any Gremlin crew that enjoys a few good drinks.
  21. Happy Monday! We continue with a look at some mysterious upcoming projects. Now speculate away on what monkey-business this model might get up to!
  22. Happy Monday Wyrdos! Today was a bit of an odd one. I wandered into the office and found an envelope on my desk. No markings on it. I discovered these guys in that envelope. Unsure of what it might mean, I figured I would leave it to the community to help me figure out. What do you think these are? Speculate away!
  23. Happy Friday Wyrdos! Today we are showing off the South Wales Borderers of the King's Empire. Let's take a look! In the aftermath of the Battle of London, the Parliament passed the Military Service Act, forcing the unmarried men of their nation into active military service. The Act received a great deal of public support, and British men and women both flocked to the recruitment centers to join in the defense of their homeland. The greatest number of new recruits hailed from South Wales. This flooded the ranks of the British army with thousands of boisterous, patriotic warriors with questionable accents. Given mechanical weaponry to augment their physical ones, they’ve been sent into the battle with little training but a lot of patriotism. On the tabletop, the South Wales Borderers are one of the Empire’s only melee units. With durable five model Fireteams, the Borderers actually become stronger when their friends and squad mates are removed from play. They make for a great front-line unit, especially against ranged Companies that like to pepper their enemies with bullets before charging into battle.
  24. Happy Friday Wyrdos! I had a lot of trouble pinning down exactly what model this preview was, but I finally figured it out. It's a Morphling! It was tough to decide with all that morphing around. Let's take a look. All Gibbering Hordes have the ability to change their physiology to some extent, but Morphlings have far greater control over their bodies than most. Similar to Neverborn Dopplegangers, these brutal creatures frequently exploit their talents to become the alpha hunters of their pods. A Morphling's only real shortcoming is the inability to adjust its body mass, which limits the number of things it can reasonably change into. On the table, Morphlings are an excellent addition to almost any Squad. They can perform Actions printed on any friendly Squad in play, which grants their unit a bit of additional (and unexpected) flexibility.
