  1. On a complete tangent; Mike the creator of Gaslands is a big fan of Malifaux as well
  2. Greeting all! Looking for something to do while locked inside self-isolating, and bored of painting minis? Why not a game of Malifaux... (TLDR: rules for playing Malifaux by yourself) This is a little something I have been working on for quite some time as I just don't get the opportunity to play with other people very often any more. I've seen other games use an 'Artificial Intelligence' to control models and allow you to play against yourself, so I thought I'd have a go at building an AI to use in a game of Malifaux. This ended up being a lot more intricate than I had originally thought. So how to use this AI. Firstly set up your game choosing your crew, the AI crew, deployment zones, schemes/strategies etc. When an enemy (AI) model needs to activate or do any sort of action or interaction with other models refer to the AI rules. Start at the top of the relevant list and attempt to answer the questions. If the answer is yes, resolve the text to the right of the question. If the answer to the question is 'No' move to the next question. Keep moving down the questions till the action is resolved. This is a work in progress so please add any comments or improvements that you can think of. AI can be found here: (this link will be updated to always link to the latest version) https://moduler.com.au/wp-content/uploads/Malifaux-Solo.pdf Enjoy! D.
  3. 36 minutes later and already the Drop box link is broken...
  4. With all that lovely scatter for Teddy to play with he needs somewhere to keep his fur dry when it rains. So I built him an Arboretum that he can grow flowers and play hide and seek in. Teddy is very happy now, you should see the smile on his face.
  5. It's been very quiet in this tread, so here is a little something I recently finished. I wanted a display for my starter set that I can use to display the models in between demos and during tournaments.
  6. Got mine from Bunnings, they have a few different sorts but they don't always stock them on the shelves so it may be a special order https://www.bunnings.com.au/gunnersen-1220-x-810-x-3mm-pvc-expanded-foam_p0390217 https://www.bunnings.com.au/1200-x-900-x-3mm-black-pvc-foam-board-sheet_p1010816 https://www.bunnings.com.au/suntuf-6mm-1200-x-600mm-white-pvc-foam-sheet_p1010817
  7. It's been some time since I updated my blog... Somehow personal life just seems to get in the way... So here is a few little tidbits that I have been working on: Teddy wants to go for a journey through time and space! Nobody told Teddy he would have to water the flowers... Now they are all gone. Teddy wants his friends to sit with him, but now that he has hugged all of them they have all gone home.
  8. Spring is here and that means it's time to prepare for the Australian Malifaux Nationals at Cancon 2019. The Australian Malifaux Nationals is an annual event held during CanCon in the wonderful city of Canberra. It is Australia's (2nd) largest and most diverse tournament in Australia and is a great chance to test your skill against a broad range of players from all around the country. The Nationals are for both beginner and experienced players alike. Date: 26th - 27th Jan 2019 Where: Cancon 2019 - Exhibition Park in Canberra (EPIC), Corner of Flemington Road and Northbourne Avenue, Mitchell, ACT, 2911 Tournament Details: 6 games, Fixed Faction, 50ss crews Tournament Organiser: Sebastian/Dhampir Email: admin@malifauxcanberra.org CanCon troubles: If you have any problems with ticketing or the broader Cancon venue, contact Tim - cgsinc@tpg.com.au Entry fee: $60 for two days ($50 for one day, or just an additional $10 if you are already playing in another tournament.)

  9. This is a really cool idea, I will have to agree with you about it only being for demos as it poses a problem when determining 'corners' for certain schemes and strategies. You could however write some house rules to get around this though.. Can't wait to see the finished product!
  10. I like the idea of the PVC lumber to reduce warping and weight. Idea stolen
  11. Details: 3 games 50ss Fixed Faction $20 entry (Tickets available at the store) Where: Jolt Games Canberra 56 Hoskins street, Mitchell, Australian Capital Territory
  12. They soak in a little, but you have to touch up the cut edges.
  13. Combination of paddlepop sticks (coffee stirrer for all you statesiders) and balsa. It's black acrylic with a small amount of either green or yellow ochre added to it and watered down to a very thin wash, then the wood is soaked in batches of the different washes so that they all have a different hue. This is all done before construction, then just mix them up and you build.
  14. I have plans to add some whinches to the warehouses for this exact purpose, but I'm sure that could be a cool addition to the other buildings too.
  15. So I think it's time for an update, January has been a busy time organising the Australian Malifaux Nationals, with the highlight (for me at least) was the creation of our custom Supply Wagons for use with Gaining Grounds 2018. Here it is in it's raw form: And here was one of the players painted and customised version: And onto terrain... The quarantine table took a bit of a step back while I frantically worked on a demo board to use at the Nationals, the idea being that I utilise the weatherboard Victorian house from my first post onto a small 18" x 18" table for use with Henchman hardcore/Demos. There is still lots that I want to finish; more ground cover, quick reference in the grey set-up sections. The table had a game of Henchman hardcore on it and it worked really well, but there are some major bottle necks through the house that need to be addressed. So it's time to make some more doors and holes in the walls. And lastly, I've gotten back to the quarantine board, staining of the wood elements begins:
