We will be running a whole weekend of Malifaux events at Indianapolis' first dedicated miniature gaming convention. There will be prizes, there will be glory, there will be bad things! Register today at https://www.indystorm.net/ Henchman Hardcore: Price:$5 Maximum Players: 16 Start Time: 9am Sunday, February 2nd, 2019 Where: Wyndham Indianapolis (2544 Executive Dr. Indianapolis, IN 46241) Format: Henchman Hardcore; 30 Soul Stones TO: Robert Singer Rounds: 5 Additional Information: Henchman Hardcore Henchman Hardcore is different from standard Malifaux in the following ways: • Encounter Size is 30 Soulstones. • Round Time Limit is 30 minutes. • Only Henchmen can be chosen as a Crew’s Leader. • A Leader's Cost is not treated as 0 when hiring. • A Crew’s Soulstone Pool can never exceed 3 (any excess Soulstones are discarded). • Player's have a maximum hand size of 4. • Player Crews must contain exactly 4 models and are fixed for the event, and thus cannot change between games. • Leaders have an Action limit of 2 instead of 3. • Models cannot be Summoned. If a model would be Summoned, the Summon effect is ignored. • The Helping Hand ability listed on Effigy models is ignored. • VP from Strategies may be scored during Turn 1. • Encounters are predetermined as follows: Deployment: Wedge Strategy: Plant Explosives Schemes: Vendetta & Assassinate Strategy & Scheme descriptions below for reference: Strategy: Plant Explosives After Deployment, starting with the player with Initiative, each player alternates placing Explosives Tokens on their deployed models until each player has placed a total of five Explosives Tokens on their models. Minions can have a maximum of one Explosive Token placed on them, while non-Minions can have a maximum of two Explosive Tokens placed on them. A model with one or more Explosives Tokens can take the Interact Action to discard an Explosives Token and Drop a Strategy Marker into base contact with itself on the enemy Table Half. Strategy Markers cannot be Dropped within 6" of another friendly Strategy Marker. This Action cannot be taken if a Marker cannot be Dropped this way. A model in base contact with a Strategy Marker can take the Interact Action to discard the Strategy Marker and gain an Explosives Token. If a model with one or more Explosives Tokens is killed, an enemy model within 3" of the killed model may gain the killed model’s Explosives Tokens. Otherwise, they are discarded. At the end of each Turn, a Crew gains 1 VP if there are more Strategy Markers on the opponent’s table half than this Crew has earned VP from this Strategy. Strategy Markers on the centerline count as being on both table halves. Deployment: Wedge Schemes: Assassinate Reveal: At the end of the Turn, if the enemy Leader is in play and has half its maximum Health or less, you may reveal this Scheme to gain 1 VP. End: At the end of the game, if the enemy Leader is not in play, gain 1 VP. Vendetta At the beginning of the game, secretly choose a friendly non-Totem model and an enemy non-Leader model with equal or higher Cost. Reveal: At the end of the friendly model’s Activation, if it successfully dealt damage to the secretly chosen enemy model and the enemy model has half its maximum Health or less (but is still in play), you may reveal this Scheme to gain 1 VP. End: At the end of the game, if the friendly model is in play and the enemy model is not, gain 1 VP.
  3. Looking for a fun-filled winter weekend of Malifaux events located at the Crossroads of America? Then look no further than Indy Storm! We will be running a whole weekend of Malifaux events at Indianapolis' first dedicated miniature gaming convention. There will be prizes, there will be glory, there will be bad things! Register today at https://www.indystorm.net/ All Out Brawl: Price $5 Max Players: 16 Start Time: 7PM Friday January 31 Where: Wyndham Indianapolis (2544 Executive Dr. Indianapolis, IN 46241) Format: 1 Enforcer, 1 Upgrade TO: Robert Singer Rounds: 3 The All Out Brawl is an arena deathmatch where players take their favorite Enforcers and wreak as much mayhem as possible! This is a great format to use if you have spent all day playing competitively and your group is looking for something more laid back for the evening. It is also a great way to spend an afternoon if you want something different. This format is best played with between 4 and 8 participants; if your group has more people than this, you may want to consider breaking up into multiple All Out Brawls which are played simultaneously. Rules All Out Brawl is a game mode for 4-8 players and differs from standard Malifaux in the following ways: • Players may choose any one non-Master, non-Henchman with Cost 10 or less as their Leader. No other models are hired. • Players may deploy their model anywhere not within 6" of another model (in a random order). • Leaders have an Action limit of 2 instead of 3. • Players have a maximum hand size of 3. • Models cannot be Buried. If a model would be Buried, it instead suffers 2 irreducible damage. • Each player flips for Initiative. When determining Initiative, the player with the highest Initiative is first, then the second highest, and so on. When Activating, play proceeds in this same order. • When a player would Activate a model, if they have no models in play, they may summon their Leader within 6" of a random table edge. Their Leader then gains Slow. • Models cannot be Summoned from any effect other than the above effect, if a model would be Summoned, the Summon effect is ignored. • Instead of using Schemes and Strategies, players may gain/lose VP in any of the following ways: - After a model is killed, the Crew controlling the model that killed it gains 2 VP. - At the end of a model's Activation, its controller gains 1 VP for each model damaged during that Activation. - During the End Phase, a Crew gains 1 VP if it has any models within 6" of the Centerpoint.
  4. Season's greetings Wyrdos! With December (month not Tyrant) on the horizon, it felt like a good time to get together for a Malifaux event with some holiday twists! There will be holiday snacks (cookies, cake, drinks) available all day, and you are encouraged to wear your ugliest holiday garb. In addition, the entry fee for the event will be unique! In lieu of a traditional cash entry, each player will be responsible for providing a gift wrapped package of Malifaux models or a Malifaux kit to be added to Krampus's sack for a good old fashioned White Elephant gift exchange! Models/kits do not have to be NIB, but must be unpainted. If you would like to enter an assembled model or group of models, that is fine, but the models must be unpainted and assembled to a decent standard. If you are unsure about the quality, don't use it and go with something else. Models unassembled on sprues are also allowed. All models should be provided with appropriate bases and must be gift wrapped. There is no limit to the MSRP ceiling for your entry fee, but the floor is a model worth $10.00 or more.

  6. When can we expect the round encounters for the Tyrant tournament?
  7. In my experience, Hucksters without Trained Ninja are just fine to give you a higher cache. If you play it right, the hucksters should always be hiding and out of LOS near blocking terrain anyway. Otherwise, everything else seems solid. Have you given thought to a Tanuki instead of Ruffian? I find that they provide greater utility for me when I run McCabe.
  8. Hey all, if you are in the Central Indiana area, we will be having regular M3E Demo Nights and Open play at Sinclair Games in Carmel, IN from 6pm-10pm every Thursday in July.

  14. Hello Wyrdos! We have a small but growing community of players in Indianapolis and Central Indiana and we are trying to get it to grow even more! If you are in the Indianapolis or Central Indiana area (or just visiting) consider giving us a visit for a Rapid Growth League that is going to begin this week! The league will begin meeting for a league night every Thursday. The first meeting will be Thursday May 31 starting at 6:00 PM at Sinclair Games (112 W Carmel Dr, Carmel, IN 46032). More info below: This will kick off the first week of our second Rapid Growth Malifaux League. Games will start with 35 soul stone crews so that Masters may be taken. Factions must be declared by the start of the first night of the league. I think it will be good to post before the league night which faction you will be utilizing here on the event page or on the Indy Malifaux page. Rapid Growth is an achievement league so there will be plenty of fun to be had for not just painting or winning games but also for doing odd things in the game like playing a game without cheating or going a turn with your hand revealed to your opponent. We will follow the rules and achievements for the official Wyrd Malifaux Rapid Growth Rules with the following exceptions: Weeks 1 & 2 will be 35 ss Weeks 3 & 4 will be 40 ss Week 5-6 and on will be 50 ss Also, I will post a weekly Strategy & Schemes scenario for each week's use to mix things up. These will not be limited to GG 2018 but a combination of current & past GG and basic rule book schemes & strategies. We will meet every week for the league except on June 14, as I will be out of town and cannot organize that week. You may find the Rapid Growth rules on the Wyrd website. Please read through them in anticipation of league night. I will post updated league standings following each league night. Good luck to everyone and remember: Bad Things Happen!
