  1. I'd say, you can get all the information easily. And as I understand M3E will have all the cards in some other languages, so it will get a lot easier. The scemes and strategies are limited. So you could translate them once and be good for a year. I think the terrain from Kill Team would be a really good starter. I would not like the look of it, but I'd say the amount should be okay. Malifaux is not"gamey" like a board game. It is very tactical and you have a lot of synergies in your crew you have to remember. But if you all start together, you will only have a limited pool by yourself and your opponents. I'd say you'll have a long time fun (and learning) with your starting crews. Compared to Malifauy 40K or AOS fells like Yatzee. I never played Infinity, but of what I know Malifaux should be easier to learn. With the crews it depends. From what I understand the new keywords will help the masters to be played more with their crew boxes. And some information about the keywords is availible. So you'll get good advice what you might buy or not in the faction forums.

    Diversity in Malifaux

    Yeah! That's one of the things I so much like in Malifaux. One thing took me a while to regocnize. That was the use "her" in the rulebook. Adding to #2 the generics: it's not only to have female sculps, but the sculpts themselves don't differ from the male ones. No use of multople twistet joints and bones to create a "sexy" appearence. All the models have the same design

    Monthly Painting Challenge - July

    I like the lips. But IMO the eyes look too artificial. I'd try to paint them the same grey as the skirt. This would still look very cold but more organic.

    Damn my eyes!

    Don't paint them. If you're painting for gaming you don't need to paint them. Or you can do something like a "cross". Horizontal line with ivory vertical line with brown. And then a little dip with Agrax earthsahde or strong tone. Most times there will be an eye that's easier to paint: paint the other first. And don't expect to do everythong right the first try. Eyes are small and very quick overpainted and started again.

    I like the cloak. Both, the upper anhd lower part. The swords look a liitle more like bone than gold. But that's ok. They still look very good.

    Malifaux Shows

    Not much ideas but Penny Dreadful was an amazing Malifaux setting. I will check Frankenstein Chronicles.

    It's always a goog thing to try something new. Sometimes it works, sometimes you gather experience. I think the idea with the transition is a nice one. I like to have a little drop of one maincolor in all other colors. This way everything looks tied together. Another approach can be to use one color (or a drop of it) to most highlights. With your painting I'd say you can go a lot deeper into the shadows and into the highlights. Especially in the NMM: there you should paint all the way from (near) black to white. I allways suggest the tutorials from Vince Venturella.

    There isn't much to improve IMO. For Tabletop miniatures I would add more highlights. And the shoulder bag needs some more shadows, highlights an weathering.

    I hope so too! Awesome painted fur.
  12. I don't know, if this could apply to your game. But for me it was a massive improvement in my gaming in general when I learned to ignore models. I always try to play stictly to the mission. In the past I too often tried to get rid of the dangerous models and did not score enough points. Now I maybe still loose (I'm not a very expierenced player), but sometimes manage to win. And if not, I feel very much in control.

    Arcanist Arthropod Assembly Facility

    That's a nice and unusual idea for a board.

    The Whisperer in Darkness

    Yeah! I like the colors on the Seamus crew. And in generell, how you have the models of a crew painted in a similar pattern.

    water effects

    I've not yet experimented with water effects. But I would start with these two tutorials. A friend of me recommends Vallejo Water Effect, but only for bases. Tutorial from Josua of Massive Voodoo. Tutorial from Vince Venturella for water bases
