    Show me your models!

    When I have time I will try to post pictures of miniatures I got. Overall, I am very happy with the products and glad that I backed this project. I had a Tyrant's pledge plus some additional miniatures and decks. Some things were missing...a stat card, an arm for one of the infantry men, and the Field Intelligence Corps (but I think it was mentioned in an update that it will be sent as a separate package). The Good: - The standard size models met and sometimes surpassed my expectations on quality. I am especially impressed with most of the Gibbering Horde figures. Some bent weapons/tentacle things but should be fixable with the hot water/cold water method. -The bulkier models are hefty, it does not look like the large models are hollow in the inside. - I expected the miniatures to be pre-glued onto the bases. But came not glued. For me this is good for decorating the base. - Accessories, the KS exclusive deck is very nice. I like it a lot better than the plastic decks for each allegiance (which pales in presentation to the exclusive deck, imo). The keychain measuring tape is very convenient. The Bad: - I feel the Titans varies greatly in size. I am not sure if this was the original intent. Horomatangi looks fairly small compared to King's Hand and Alpha Crawler. The Dreadnought appears to be smaller scale than the rest of the range. The three soldiers riding the Titan, are roughly 75-80% the size of Abyssinia regular foot infantry models. Again not sure if that was the original size or did they had to scale down the model to fit base or what else. I was very interested in Abyssinia, but was disappointed in the Titan and wonder how the other two titans in that allegiance will turn out. - Pre-assembly - For my gorysche I was able to easily snap off one of its head (at the gluing point). Several of the smaller infantry sized models had their arms not attached. I'm not sure if it was some poor assembly or will it be an issue in the long run of parts coming off from models. Again, overall I am very happy with the products. I only wished Three Kingdoms and Kimon was part of the first wave, as now I have to wait on the allegiances that I am most interested in! Thanks Wyrd for making it and hopefully it will be a very successful product line.

    Third Edition is Coming!!

    "Thematic" crew...I wonder if this allows some of the previous dual factions masters to retain the use of minions from their past 2nd edition faction.

    Final Order

    Shipping cost have been uploaded for me (US region). It was ~$28.00 shipping cost for an order that have almost one of every miniature unit (minus Artillery and Motorcycle unit). One of everything seems to be a nice way to add additional miniatures for a Through the Breach RPG campaign...

    Next Allegiances

    There is plan for a 2-player starter set and 2 allegiances (Three Kingdoms and Kimon). I would like to know when these will be released compared to the four allegiances that were in the kickstarter during retail. It would allow me to decide on how much money I can spend in the near future. Three Kingdoms and Kimon allegiances sound like the allegiances I would prefer to collect before the other allegiances.

    Quality of Alt Lazarus.

    Just received mine. Some questions for those that have assembled it. I got 19 pieces total, are there some digital instructions available? I don't see any digital instructions online, and while some of it is pretty easy to figure out, it would be nice to have a reference to help with assembly. Does plastic cement/glue work with this material or is superglue the recommended adhesive to use?

    New Image

    My bad, you are right. For some reason I thought Thrace and Binh were commanders in their syndicates

    New Image

    My guess based on that image is that the each side will feature 1 commander, 1 nine-person unit, and 1 champion for a total of 22 miniatures and a retail price of ~$100. I was thinking that the 2-player stater set will have the non-limited sculpt of Binh and Thrace as their commanders.

    Black Friday Sale

    Don't see Santana Ortega on the list. I wonder if that figure is completely out of stock...hoping it shows up the next online special. Also hope that vintage models will be available in future sales. A good chunk of my miniature budget have been invested into The Other Side.

    Tyrant Pledge Stretch Goals

    What you wrote sounds about right for the tyrant pledge

    August LGS Promotion

    I did not received a message from Wyrd about shipping of the promotion item, but I did received a USPS tracking notification from Georgia. I assume it is for this as I am not expecting anything else from that area. I received the notification yesterday.
  11. My back cover of the Creative Taxidermy book was ripped when I purchased this product such that some of the Stuffed Piglet information is missing. Since I originally purchased this product for Malifaux, I did not thought much about it. I just recently got interested in the TTB role playing game and was hoping others that have the book can fill in the missing information: Stuffed Pig [Page Teared] Peon (4), Undead, Be[Page Teared, Missing Keywords information] [Page Teared, Missing Speed Stat] Edit: Got the information.

    Next Allegiances

    It wouild be neat if you can have 2 dual commanders to get three allegiances together..Earth Side vs Malifaux Side...most likely harder to balance though

    how to start

    I would recommend going with just one allegiance if you have others in your area getting the game from the start, Otherwise, going for two allegiances, you can play the game with family or introduced it to friends.
  14. I have not caught up on all the fluff, but there was a distinction made on how one oni can manifest a lot easier in the Malifaux side and not on Earth side. The "world of Oni" is an in-between world from the "mortal realm" of Earth and Malifaux? It will be interesting to see how Wyrd incorporate them into the fluff. IIRC In some Chinese myths, yokai (classified as Oni in the Malifaux game) can be humans in their previous lives that did not reincarnate back into another human being/normal animal. This could be due to a tragic death or resentment during their previous lives.
  15. I saw this album link to TGN - https://www.facebook.com/pg/tabletopgamingnews/photos/?tab=album&album_id=10154986276537945 From a thread in Malifaux's Forum Section Going through the images, you can see some new models for The Other Side (based on the shape of the base ^_^). According to some at GenCon it seems the next two allegiances will be Three Kingdoms and Kimon (Oni). So I guess by the time the Kickstarter is fulfilled and the following Wave 2 book, there will be 8 allegiances: Earth Side: King's Empire, Abyssinia, Guild (Syndicate), and Three Kingdoms Malifaux Side: Cult of the Burning Man. Gibbering Horde, Court of Two (Syndicate), and Kimon. Really looking forward to the more Asian factions. Hopefully The Other Side is successful enough to get a Wave 3 for the North/South Americas' Factions for a World War-ish event
