    Wait... Are you saying that the open beta will go live according to some weird alternate American timeline and not according to the real time (CET)? Disappointed!
  2. Thank you for the list. Since I like to play thematic crews, things look pretty much like I suspected. No big changes. Except for thematic Lucius... Woah... 5/9 Mimics now unavailable to him if I count correctly, and a sixth has become non-thematic. Which leads me to a question. In the list, there seems to be pretty large differences in thematic hiring pools. Many masters have around 7 models with the same keyword in addition to themselves and their totems. Marcus have 8-9 in addition to making in-faction beasts versatile. And then there are masters like Lucius with 4 models and Nellie with 3. I guess this will be adress somehow before the release of M3E, so it would be interesting to know more about that. Will they get lots of new models? Will they get upgrades allowing them to hire other keywords? Or are they actually stuck with the option of using generic in-faction versatile models or paying the non-thematic tax? A future weekly feature on the fate of the thematically impaired masters would be good.

    Mortarion's Malifaux models

    It's been a while since I posted anything. I've had a lot to do at work, and my hobby time had gone to other stuff. In fact, it has been so little painting that the Guild decided to send two impartial investigators to find the truth about what happened. After careful investigation we have concluded that the Guild is definately not to blame for the lack of painting. Allthough it might not be clearly visible on the photos, I added a bloody knife to the base, so that she would have something to investigate. I thought a bit about which colour to use for the carpet. A light colour (like in the illustration) would look good and provide some opportunity to paint blood stains. However, I decided that it would also push the model to far into pure comedy territory. If you are going to dispatch of a bloody corpse it is stupid to use a light carpet as the blood would soak through. A red carpey would make that much less obvious. So I went for a red carpet.

    Waldo's Weekly - Movement in M3E

    It would fix any balance issues, but it will be slightly strange that the Flight keyword changes how you meassure your movement, since you still use the Mv stat. But it's not at big thing. It would be logical, but the text states that Place works more or less like in M2E and that "completely within" is gone.

    Waldo's Weekly - Movement in M3E

    If I'm not mistaken, when you place a model in M2E you meassure from any point of the base to any point of the base, meaning that you effectively gain movement equal to the model's base when compared to normal movement where you meassure to the same point on the base. Is this true in M3E as well? The text seems to imply that it is, meaning that flight will actually boost a model's speed as well. And overall good changes by the way.

    Mortarion's Malifaux models

    And now, finally, the master to lead the last couple of models - Pandora! I tried a slightly different colour scheme from the "official" one. Green and purple like the rest of my Neverborn. And purple hair instead of red. I also painted the ghostly energy coming out of the box blue to add some more contract. The colours have more depth in reality than shows up on this photo. And her friend Candy: When seeing pictures of this model I didn't realise just how tiny it really is. The size made it somewhat difficult to paint, but it turned out OK in the end I think.

    Barbaros looking forward

    He could be in a similiar position as when he was kept as a gladiator by the humans - that he lays low and work for Nekima while secretly plotting his revenge...

    Mortarion's Malifaux models

    New models! First up, the last Sorrow: And a Poltergeist: And finally a group picture of the whole misery family: Go ahead! Make that Wp duel! What could possibly go wrong?

    Dead Man's Hand

    The fate of the Judge was revealed by Mason in another thread.

    Whose your favorite Guild Master?

    In a perfect world, a second master would end up costed so that you really have to consider if you want to include her. She will bring a lot, but the cost required could be used for other good things instead. Do I want quantity or quality? Like a Peacekeeper today. In my opinion, two (or more) masters should be playable, but more of a niche thing for elite lists. I would not like if it becomes the norm. So I hope that the beta testing manages to avoid both that a second master brings more value than the alternatives (Yasunori or Nekima level) and that a second master simply costs too much for what she does (pre-buff Pale Rider level).

    So, playable Judge and progression in the story? Awesome!

    Dead Man's Hand

    I noticed some interesting stuff in the official Dead Man's Hand info. https://www.wyrd-games.net/m3e-dead-mans-hand 1. It lists some other models in addition to the masters. Mostly their totems, but also Ryle. It would be interesting to know if this is a complete list. For example, it has been confirmed that The Judge is dead, but he is not on the list. Since it is a title, there could easily be another person who takes on the title of "The Judge". Or the info could just be listing some examples. 2. Look at the Faction on Ramos card. He is not Arcanists. He is Dead Man's Hand. It still remains to be seen exactly what this means, but at least it will propably mean less access to non-thematic models. 3. And speaking of thematic models. Ramos "Legendary inventor" gives him quite a large selection of Thematic models. It will be interesting to see if other models gets similar rules. For example, it would suit Hoffman quite well. Of course, nothing is final yet. But when Wyrd posts something on their homepage it seems pretty solid. Any thoughts?

    M3E Guild Prediction(read: Wish)

    That is just my theory. I don't think anyone official has said so. The only official statement is that The Judge is dead. However, since the Dead Man's Hand page mentions not only Masters, but other models as well, I still think that this is possible. Changing the Judge to another person would still have a large impact on the stories.

    Lucius. The model looks so cool, and different from what you usually see in miniature games. Plus I like his playstyle where the leader makes other models better but almost never attacks the enemies himself. And with that being said, it may sound a little bit strange that Lady Justice is a close second for my favourite master. But she such a cool concept, and the Death Marshals are certainly winning the prize for being "Most Metal in Malifaux".

    I am hoping for this as well. And it would make sense for Wyrd from a financial standpoint. If a model is only cost-efficient for one master, fewer players will buy it.
