  1. Welcome to 3rd Edition! Jacks on Queen is once again playing host to Wyrd Wednesdays - where I demo and facilitate casual play for those just getting used to the format/game. Bring some friends and have some fun in Ongario’s Beautiful cottage country! Wednesdays in July 6:30-9:00 Jacks on Queen, 18 Queen St W, Elmvale Ontario
  2. Bumping so as not to get lost in the wilds.... for anyone is southern Ontario who wants to come out and celebrate the new release!
  3. Come one, come all, to the launch of Malifaux's Third Edition on Saturday, June 29! We'll have prizing (for a Henchman Hardcore Tournament)! We'll have cake! $15.00 at the door or $12.00 if you pay your pre-registration fee online or in-store by June 22. Doors open at 11:00 and Henchman Hardcore begins at 11:30 sharp - but don't leave your Masters at home! During lunch break we'll have awards for the best-dressed Masters (painting competition). Throughout the day we'll be running demos for anyone unfamiliar with either Malifaux or 3 Edition, so bring your friends! A paint table will also be set up to use between games or to get some help or advice with a new technique or project. Saturday June 29, 11:30-5:00 Location: Jacks on Queen, 18 Queen Street Elmvale ON

  5. Don't forget this Saturday we're having our last 2E Tournament! Mystery boxes and Guilders are up for grabs, in addition to prizing being supplied by the LGS. What better excuse to come see the beautiful shores of Georgian Bay! (Only 2 1/2 hours north of Toronto).
  6. Lovely! Great use of colour - very eye catching both up close and at a distance
  7. "You inhale sharply, the acrid smoke stinging your nostrils. The smell of wood burning lingers, and with it… something else? It’s faint, barely perceptible, yet with each breathe a knot grows in your stomach. Shaking your head, you glance back at your crew who have begun setting up the tarps and canvas to protect from the midday sun. A strong breeze is sending the smoke from beyond the horizon but it offers no relief - the breeze is hot, the sun is hot, everything is hot. “At our current pace, we should reach White Sands by nightfall” remarks your Henchman, always one to point out to the obvious. “Though I don’t know what you expect - we don’t have to see it to know that it’s gone!” White Sands. It was supposed to be the jewel in the Guild’s cap: the largest Soul Stone deposit ever found in The Badlands. Though currently just a mining outpost, the Guild’s City Planners were already hard at work preparing the settlement’s Official Plan, and had high hopes that it would soon be home to thousands. Yet just as soon as the dream had begun, it was over. Some say the Archanists, unable to pass up such a treasure trove of power unleashed a magic they could no longer control. Others say the miners unwittingly unearthed a Neverborn who was better left undisturbed. More whispers point to something not yet encountered in Malifaux - a malevolent power unmatched by humans or Neverborn alike. Yet whatever the cause, hundreds are now flocking to White Sands in the hopes of capturing the outpost for themselves. The Guild has sent many to restore order and slay any Neverborn that cross their paths. Others seek the magical power or riches rumoured to have been left behind. And many more seek to align themselves with any Neverborn that may have been awakened therein. Regardless of the calamity's cause, what is certain is that as hundreds converge on White Sands, a fearsome battle is all but imminent. The question remains: which one are you?" ——————————————- Welcome to the settlement of White Sands, where fortunes are won and crews destroyed! In celebration of the completion of my new Badlands scenery, this thematic 40SS tournament will proceed around the premise of protecting or looting the town. The tournament will use the following set set Story Encounter options over three or four rounds, depending on the number of participants: Rams - Squatters Rights Crows - Supply Wagon Tomes - Treasure Hunt Masks - Escort The final round will consist of a Master/Henchman free-for-all in the town of White Sands itself for bonus Victory Points! (2 VP for each model you kill and 4 VP for being the last player standing) Saturday, May 4, 2019 11:30-5:00 Jacks on Queen, 18 Queen St W Elmvale, ON
  8. Happy Sunday, Wyrdos! After a break for the winter we are starting up our Wyrd Wednesday’s with the first Henchman Hardcore event of the new year! Wednesday April 10 6:30-9:00 Jacks on Queen, 18 Queen St W Elmvale, ON See you there!
  9. Sweet. I was really hoping she was actually Ten Thunders when I first saw her picture...
  10. Hello! I stumbled upon the Hinamatsu model today and instantly fell in love, but havn't been able to find any information on her other than the general description on the Wyrd Store. Is she a henchman? Enforcer? Peon? Can anyone share their experience playing with her, or at least give a little more information on who she is? (She doesn't show up on the Neverborn section of the Malifaux Website either.) Thematically I would love to include her in my Dreamer playroom set (another 'mother' to help him alongside Widow Weaver...) but need to know a bit more about her before I make the decision to purchase. ...OR... I throw caution to the wind and buy her anyways since she's so gosh-darn pretty
  11. It's that time again for another Henchman Hardcore Standoff at Jacks on Queen! This time around we're adding another format afterwards for those interested; a quick game of Enforcer Brawl! Link to the post of Facebook with all details: https://www.facebook.com/events/487404238397893/ August 25, 2018 12:00-5:00 $20.00 tax included and each participant gets to pick a new model as their prize! Jacks on Queen - 18 Queen Street W, Elmvale ON 705-515-5225 info@jacksonqueen.com
  12. Come one, come all, to the place where Steampunk Lives and Breathes in all it's Glory! A better place to experience Malifaux first-hand most assuredly does not exist! I will be in the Coldwater Canadiana Heritage Museum with my Newly created Western town of White Sands to provide demos and full-games alike for anyone in the area. Saturday August 11, 9:00-5:30 Coldwater Canadiana Heritage Museum; 1474 Woodrow Rd, Coldwater, ON L0K 1E0 See you there! https://www.steampunkfestivalcoldwater.com/
  13. Hear-yea, hear-yea! Malifaux’s newest town is currently under construction and we need you, valiant Wyrdo, to become its first inhabitants! Picturesque White Sands boast breathtaking sunsets, beach-worthy sandstorms, glistening mirages that may (or may not) resemble actual water and of course, not a single bloodthirsty Neverborn in sight!* Do you have what it takes to reap the rewards this bountiful land has to offer and be one of the first citizens of White Sands? If so, join us at Jacks on Queen is Elmvale, Ontario on Saturday July 21 starting at 2:00, and get ready to take an uneventful and completely relaxing** walk down the newly swept streets! This event will also coincide with Elmvale Ontario's second annual Sci Fi and Fantasy Street Party, so there is much more to see and do should you come our way! Jack's on Queen 18 Queen Street West, Elmvale ON (30 minutes north of Barrie, ON via Hwy 27 705-515-5225 or info@jacksonqueen.com ... ... ... * The new Mayor of White Sands places no guarantee on whether or not Nevwrborn are in the actual vicinity. This is based solely on the testimonial of the previous mayor, who disappeared in a suspicious pool of blood only 14 hours after being sworn in to office... ** The definition of the term ‘relaxing’ is currently up for hot debate. And by hot debate, I mean pistols at dawn...
  14. I'm sure this is a topic that has cropped up before, but I always find it interesting to discover how/why players enjoy a particular game. I was first drawn to Malifaux because of how unabashedly gorgeous the miniatures and game aesthetics are, and it was later on that I discovered that I actually enjoyed playing the game. That being said, I find I still choose crews/Masters based solely on how they look or the theme I can create with them; as for me, the enjoyment of painting/creating still outweighs whether or not I do well in any games/tournaments. As I start planning my next crew of Ten Thunders, this is going to be more evident then ever. I am so excited to paint the fabrics of many of the models that I am paying almost no attention to the actual stats of the cards! So I'm curious, how do you choose your next Master/Faction/Crew? Do you also go for the looks of it first, or do you care more about playability? Do you aim to just crush your opponents, or do you try to find a crew you think would be most fun/interesting to play? Or a combination of all? Because Malifaux itself has so many different directions you can go for, I'm very interested to see how people choose to immerse themselves in this universe!
