  1. Does anyone take the building size limit of 6 inches seriously? I have a load of buildings and many of them are over that size. Six inches wide on any side is really small for a building.
  2. It's true and Seamus is the ultimate pimp daddy for it; however, I was just speaking to a more broader criticism I see pop up in the games I love that I'm finding a little tiresome these days. I play with a couple of my friends, my wife, and her friend and her friend exclusively plays with her "zombie whore" crew (her words) and she loves it.
  3. Oops, forgot to add that I agree with the Dreamer. I loved the idea of an innocent little boy summoning giant monsters!
  4. I'm not entirely comfortable with how some people have decided to associate women dressed with sex-appeal in mind as "prostitutes". Malifaux has plenty of women in the game who are not sexy. Perhaps let's not wag our finger at the tiny few that are. I find it's upsetting that some companies are actually listening to these complaints, when it's obvious they are held by what is likely a small segment of the community. I for one enjoy the sexy sculpts, as does my wife who both plays and paints with me. It's actually part of the thing that drew me to the game, since I loved the over-top stylizatio
  5. Do you attach the front rag directly to the legs and does the rag go directly behind the belt in that small groove?
  6. I'm having a hell of a time assembling one of the skullywags. It's the one with the swords crossed over his chest. I have the entire upper-half assembled, it's the bottom half that confuses me. His pelvis and and front rag don't seem to fit in that groove under his torso, under the belt! An assembly guide would have been amazing. Help!

  8. "we also cut down on the excess of Actions, Abilities, and Triggers to make sure the focus is on the fun and not on the memorization." So they've reduced the amount of choices I make? That's not fun. I like making choices in a miniature game. I like triggers.
  9. No need for intellectual dishonesty. You know very well that he's not suggesting people are putting a gun to a developers head and "forcing" them. He's suggesting people are attempting to cohere designers to do something that they may not want to do for the purpose of pleasing a select few. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. Some are just here to point out that the wheel doesn't need greasing.
  10. I'm still new to this game. What is in this book? Are the rules all new or something? Will they be available online? Is my regular manual outdated now?
  11. I didn't say people can't want more diversity. If I did, by all means, quote the passage that states that idea. You're not engaging with the strongest form of my argument. You're strawmanning. My reference to homosexual characters within popular culture that were likely produced on the foundation of "let's make a gay!" is indeed relevant to my previous points. Again, I would ask that you engage with me honestly or not at all. Thank you.
  12. I did not say anything about fan opinions of character traits are horrid. That's not the question that was asked. I did not say preferences could not be discussed. Please engage with me honestly. I was broadening the discussion to cultural artifacts that extend beyond miniatures. I'd apologize for not making that clearer, but I think you know that's what I was doing.
  13. Why is it bad to ask artists to jam politically motivated requests into a miniatures game? 1) Maybe I don't like the idea of someone sitting down and thinking to themselves: "man, this game needs more gays! I'm going to make a gay character!".Do you know that feeling you get when you see a stock photo? That perfectly orchestrated mix of genders and races that in no way looks natural? Makes you cringe a little, doesn't it? Well it makes me sick to my stomach because I know a person was behind that photo saying "We need more blacks in our photo. Get me a black!". There is something insidiou
  14. Yes, let us jam homosexuality into Malifaux. "Progressiveness" has worked wonders for Marvel! Their sales are record breaking! I'm sorry, but the sexuality of a character largely isn't important, both in terms of mechanics and lore. If your primary attribute that you feel makes you interesting is what genitals you're attracted to, you're a boring person. The VAST majority of characters in this game do not have any indication of their sexuality. Homosexuals make up 4 percent (if not less) of the population. How many models actually have lore that give a clear indication that their exclusiv
  15. I gave up on creating unison on my Ten Thunders completely and I'm happy about it. I simply read the lore for each figure and create a base that best fits that figure and the tone for that character. Obsidian Oni come from some sort of fire area and so they get a lava base Misaki's crew are all near a riverbed Jorogumo are in a dark forest covered in webs and spider eggs Snipers are in some hills surrounded by dense forest The Lone Samurai stands in a snow and arrow covered battlefield with flecks of cherry blossom scatter (beauty and war) Asami and gang are all o
  16. That's REALLY close to MeepleMart's anniversary! Let's see some Malifaux sales!!!! I'd love to give MeepleMart my entire tax refund!
  17. "Perdita and her lot are Neverborn-slayers and folk heroes to boot. They're about as good as it seems to get". Yes, good old Perdita! Nothing says goodness like genocide and slavery! So, "kill all Neverborn" is good and worthy of folk hero status, while "kill all humans" is problematic and evil. Genocide is okay, so long as you don't belong to the group being exterminated? Okay.
  18. I can't even find the damn Dreamer to buy him!
  19. So many times THIS! I could get this game played A LOT more if 3-4 player stuff was implemented.
  20. Wow! That's a lot of stuff! I was crossing my fingers and wishing I could just order them all from that site but I guess if scrap and corpse size are important than the ones that site offers might not be adequate. I too don't write on my cards. I love status tokens and extra game bling! I was okay spending the cash on tokens, since I'm used to ordering dice and tokens for each individual team in Guild Ball.
  21. I'm new to the game and I'm looking to dive in deep! I know I need counters for this game but I don't know what I need. I have a few tokens from this site: http://www.brokenegggames.com/enhancements/elite-gaming-tokens.html?p=2 I use them for Guild Ball. I was wondering what I would need for Malifaux. I'd like to place an order from that site to get the same style of tokens, so I can use them for both games! I just can't seem to find a list of every token I need and how many I need (I'll be buying enough for two players to play). If someone could list off the tokens I should order a
