  1. That is the best Lady J sculpt so far. It is not perfect, but far better than the previous models. And finally she is wearing a long coat, like the other Marshals. The Judge is a good sculpt, but doesn't really look like a Judge to me. But I guess they wanted it to be different from the current one to show that it is a new person. The Scales are OK, but I like the M2E version much more. The Death marshals are on par with the current ones. Maybe slightly more boring poses, but still really good.
  2. They all have the old art. However, that does not mean anything. With a few exceptions all cards in the faction packs have the old art unless there are more cards then previously available. For example, Lucius, Marcus and Dreamer all have the old art and we know they are getting redone. This is because the Faction pack is there to allow you to use your old models in the new edition. And therefore the art on the cards look like the old models.
  3. Good work! I really liked the overlays of which model was activating and its health. And the music was much more fitting this time. (And a plus for the comment about changing the music...)
  4. I like it! Very easy to follow even if I were not familiar with the crews. Looking forward to seeing more battle reports from you. My only complaint was the music, which did not really fit the theme/mood of Malifaux in my opinion. But that is just a matter of taste.
  5. Thanks for the answers!
  6. I have been reading the rules for shadows and line of sight several times and there is one thing I don't quite understand. Page 54 (18 in the PDF) in the rulebook says: "When drawing sight lines from one model to another, if either model is in the Shadow of terrain with Height equal to or greater than the Size of that model (even partially), any sight lines that pass through the terrain generating that Shadow are blocked (even if the terrain is being ignored du to its Height, as per the Line of Sight and Size rules on pg. 53)." So, let's say we have a Changeling (Size 1) standing in the Shadow of a Height 1 Blocking terrain and a Peacekeeper (Size 3) is looking at the Changeling. All lines of sight pass through the blocking terrain. Following the quote above, the Peacekeeper would according to my interpretation not be able to see the Changeling since the Changeling is in the Shadow of terrain with Height equal to its Size. That means that any sight line passing through the terrain is blocked even though the Peacekeeper ignores the terrain. A change from M2E, but still quite clear. But then I read the example on page 55. It says: "The Guard patrol is entirely within the terrain's Shadow and the terrain's Height is greater than the Size of both Parker (Size 2) and the Guard Patrol (Size 2), so any sight lines that pass through the terrain are blocked." and "The Guild Hound is entirely within the terrain’s Shadow, and the terrain’s Height is greater than the Size of both Parker and the Guild Hound (Size 1), so any sight lines that pass through the terrain are blocked." (my underlining). In this case it doesn't talk about either of the models in the Shadow, but rather both of the models. And if the requirement was for the Height to be greater than the Size of both models, the Peacekeeper would be able to see the Changeling. So which is correct? Is it enough that the Height of the terrain is equal to or greater than either model in the Shadow or does it have to be equal to or greater than both models? I assume that the rules on page 54 (either) is correct and that the example is just poorly worded. (It is correct that the Height is greater than the Size of both models, even though that is completely irrellevant in that case.)
  7. Pandora and Candy would like to encourage all enemy Masters to gain fast, especially when standing close to them. Even if there are no benefits for you, it does not mean there are no benefits...
  8. It seemed like a very good battle report from the little I could understand. So an English voice over (or English subtitles) would be much appreciated.
  9. Thank you. And yes, that gold lining did take some work. But it is one of the details that I am most pleased with.
  10. Finally done with Hinamatsu. This model has been on my painting table for quite some time while i thought about how to paint it. I really wanted to do this awesome model justice. I'm quite happy with the result.
  11. More models! First up is an Arcane effigy. This one had been sitting on my painting table for a while since I could not decide on a colour scheme. I felt I needed to come up with a colour scheme for Arcanists in general. But after some thinkingI decided to just paint him like my Neverborn instead. My main use for it would be Collodi anyway. And then things became much easier. And a third Bunraku. Hard to get a good picture of this one because of the pose. And finally Master Queeg. The face look a bit strange on the picture because of the light, but it looks better in reality. I wanted to do something with the vest, so I tried to do an embroidered Guild symbol. I wanted it to be quite subtle and I think I succeeded.
  12. The crews that have been more or less confirmed for a resculpt and re-release are Dreamer, Lucius, Rasputina and Lady Justice. Marcus, Nekima, Dashel, Basse, von Schtook, Euripides and Hamasaki are very likely to get new models, as they either have none or have changed quite a lot. Sonnia and Kirai are getting models for TOS, but I'm not sure if they are going to get new Malifaux boxes as well.
  13. 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!
  14. 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.
