    Model pictures - Can I get them somewhere?

    The ones on the website are perfect, but I'm looking for each variation of the models aswell. Like the 4 different Bayou Gremlins.
  2. Does Wyrd have a place where someone could get the model-pictures, as seen on the cards?

    M3e sculpts

    I felt the same way - Ended up giving each 2nd sculpture of a piglet, a small sign that indicating what number it was. Ended up working out but was a bit of a hassle. I’d personally like to see a new version of Som’er. From reading the fluff of Malifaux, he always seemed like an overweight, arrogant and drunk Gremlin who’d be shaped like an old pear. I always imagined him standing much like his vintage-shape, but with a bigger belly and fatter chin. Similar to the Goblin King in Lord of the Rings.

    Third Edition is Coming!!

    I can totally see that line of thought. My only counter argument would be that multiple summoning masters might simply swarm the board with models and those masters should therefore be more heavily costed. I could be wrong though.

    Third Edition is Coming!!

    I like it aswell. And this doesn't exclude hiring outside of your master-keyword. It simply requires it to be a key part of your overall "tactic". It'll make it more OK for some models to very good in specific crews that they normally don't belong in, since they are that much more expensive. 2ss Stuffed Piglets in 2019. A man can dream 😂

    Gen Con 2018 Coverage

    Man, I am pumped for the new edition. Not a big fan of the new cards though – They seem unnecessarily bloated compared to the actual text on the card. I much prefer the current, compact cards. Is this an attempt to allow for more Attack and Tactical actions on models? If so, I feel like it goes against their desire to “Lightening the Load”. It seems too flashy and elegant, rather than the dirty-and-spotted art style of the current cards. In the current version, you feel like you are opening a case file with the model and have a much better overview of its stats.

    Let’s start misinterpreting things

    Hey all Have you guys spend some time trying to figure out the new overall “theme” of The Bayou masters? I recently got into Som’er, and so I immediately focused on his flavor-text. My personal interpretation is that: He keeps Survival of the fittest (they mention it themselves) He keeps the Swarm-summoner theme (they mention it themselves) He loses his Aura (They don’t mention it) It also seems like they are giving him a new mechanic – “Forcing smaller Gremlins into one or more specialized roles” and applying the Town Crier-gimmick with leaving a Bayou Gremlin when they die. I hope that this translate into a mechanic similar to Wong’s Glowy, where you designate multiple models (they mention phrase it as “Gremlins” – Not “Gremlin”) and give them a buff. Since this is applied to multiple models, I hope it is several different buffs that each help with a certain situation. This could take form in an upgrade, though they don’t mention upgrades in their description. Examples: Assistant Deputy: This model gains +1 armor Sergeant: This model does +1 damage Scout: This model gains +1 walk and +2 charge I personally hope they don’t make it related to the new Tokens they seem to integrate into the game. I’d hate to see it turn into a generalized stat increase. It might also just mean that any other Gremlin will turn into Bayou Gremlins when they die. What do you guys think the text means, and what about the other masters?

    m3e faction announce

    I agree, but are also positive that they'll retain some unique identity of the faction. Reckless is a hot-topic, and I fear they might focus specifically on that. Hopefully we will keep Bayou Two Card.

    Backdraft box models

    So - Backdraft is now on the front page. Anyone gotten a glimpse of the models and their cards? Set to release in July, which we are halfway through
  10. Hey all Am I correct in that a Lightning Bug could continue to get an Attack on a model with Black blood, since Knock It Off! isnt a Once-Per-Turn abillity? Obviously the Bug only has 6 Wounds, and it have to take 2 DMG (1 from Blood and 1 from Knock It Off!) to do so, but still.

    Nightmare Ulix box

    I really enjoy the quirky and fun theme of the box, but I already think that Ulix has a very fun theme. While I won't buy this box, I really look forward to seeing how people paint these. Really hope they supplement this with a Piglet / Warpig box tho' - As people have already mentioned, the Wild Boars aren't the most common pick in a Ulix crew.

    Schemes & Stones Mah Tucket Crew Spotlight

    Neat'o podcast - I especially like the Lucky Ef-comments. I'll try to see if I cannot pick him up one of these days, and make him work for me. Honestly, my only wish for Mah is that they'd make Aim For the Sore Spots last until the beginning of her next activation. I also have the same wish for Brewmaster, but that is for another thread.

    Zipp + Fingers = Overkill?

    Have anyone tried Zipp & Fingers together in GG18? I've been wanting to try them both in Supply Wagons & Ply for information, but I feared it might overkill. With a cost of 10, Fingers might just be a bit too heavy? Even with an extremely interact-heavy schemepool in mind.

    The Real LaCroix-Ophelia tactica

    Nice with a solid guide that explains the models on an individuel level. I really suffer from running the same lists constantly, and so I never include models like Raphael (which is wierd, since I love Somer and he'd be able to supply him with a Ram-trigger).

    Huntin' bow + Stampede

    Hello all Last night I got into a conversation regardin' Ulix, and his Huntin' bow upgrade. A common trick is to use the Shot in the rear abillity, which allows the friendly pig to make a Charge Action against a target, and have the pig heal from "Eat your fill", which would normally end the activation, but doesn't since it isn't actually the pig who has activated. Now my friend makes the same argument for Stampede on the War pig. It here says that "This model may only declare this Trigger once per Activation." - But it hasn't activated, since it is still Ulix's turn. My counter argument was that A) It says "Per Activation" instead of "its Activation" B) You'd theoretically be able to charge forever, with just 1 AP from a Master. So it'd be too OP. So my question is: Can you make multiple Stampede-triggers from a War pig, when using Shot in the Rear?
