  1. So I've been playing Malifaux for around a year (well, playing again, its a long and uninteresting story). I play exclusively Neverborn. I'm not a fantastic player, but I'm not a terrible player either. I have no issues playing against any faction, except Gremlins. I really hate people who make casual unbalanced accusations as most of the time its a lack of imagination. In this case though I really struggle to see a pathway to victory when my opponent is a skilled Gremlin player. When I first started playing I heard some people talk about how OP gremlins were, but I also heard others say they were terrible so I assumed a balance there. But after going against them enough times I, frustratingly, am starting to agree that there are balance issues. Being able to buy up to 6 stuffed piglets for 2ss each is ridiculous. Even if ALL they did was given an activation that would be good. But they can deny schemes like Convict just by existing. If you can reliably kill them from range they will run up and tarpit you, and the fact that their explosion on dying is OPTIONAL is even more ridiculous, since you can't even force them to explode by killing them next to their own models. Add in a Pigapult, which is ludicrously low cost for what it does, and you now have 7 activations for 20ss which can deal MINIMUM 3 attacks from 24" away without requiring LoS which have a decent likelihood of blasting. Rooster Riders are ridiculous for 6ss cost models. Combined with the presence of Dumb Luck and Bayou Two Card on most of the faction I don't see what they don't do better than everyone else. High number of activations, essentially 3 ap for their entire faction in the form of reckless, insane damage output for what in my opinion is minimal cost, initiative control, hand control, high speed. So I'm not trying to be a whiner. I just am at my wit's end. I've asked experience players I know, I've asked forums on Facebook, I've asked my local henchmen. How do you beat Gremlins? I've been told to take WP attack models, but on a whole I actually don't find their WP THAT low. I've been told to isolate and kill off key models, but I'm completely unsure as to how to even get close. Manipulative, Mimic's Blessing, and Perfect Camouflage are all basically useless since nothing important on the Gremlins' side will happen before I'm completely finished activating. The only things I've come up with so far are things like Tuco, which can alpha strike the pigapult with Rets Eye from the shadows and hopefully take out a few other models with blasts, but if you lose the deployment flip then that strategy goes out the window, and even if you succeed Tuco for the Pigapult isn't an even trade. Zoraida seems to be a really good master against them. Obey's can make Stuffed Pigs go off, I think, and turn Rooster Riders back on their own with 1ap charges. Collodi could do that too I suppose and could bring Vasalisa along for more straight Obeys. So.... what do you guys have? Considering posting this in the Gremlin forums too. I'm not saying the game is broken, or even that Gremlins are definitely unbalanced, but curious how others feel on the subject and to know if anyone has figured out a way around these issues. I'm very interested in figuring out a way through this problem rather than saying its a balance issue, I'm just becoming exasperated trying to see the balance and failing.

    Starting with Mah, where to go?

    I've convinced my significant other to get into the game and she took a shine to Mah Tucket. She'll be getting Mah's box for Christmas and has picked up some single boxes on her own that she thought looked cool. Being an Archanist player, I'm not familiar enough with Gremlins to really know how to use her models very well or where to go from here. What she'll have come x-mas: The Bushwhackers box Merris LaCroix Sparks (I picked him up for Mei Fang) Gluttony (my Crossroads 7 box) Whiskey Golem (clearance at lgs) Moon Shinobi box (clearance at lgs) My initial thoughts are to pick up singles of the rest of the Brewmaster box and she can use my Performers for that list but I feel she should stick to a single master for a bit. Thoughts?

    Brewmaster Expansion.

    Hello guys, I am fairly new to Malifaux and have been attracted by the aesthetics of the Gremlin crew Brewmaster so I picked up the starter box! Now I don't know where to go... I have read on here that he isn't the best crew for a beginner so I was wondering what other Master box would be a good addition to expand them to either use the models from the box with a different master - or to use the models within the new box with Brewmaster. Whilst I know he is Ten Thunder too I really want to stay in the Gremlin line as I favour playing this for greater sense of fun over achievement / tournament play. Any help would be appreciated and I will be scouring this thread for hints on how/when to play him. Thank you.
  4. Hey all, so I am working on a Bayou Gremlin village terrain set with a few buildings, both whole and collapsed/dilapidated, a quicksand footprint for hazardous/severe terrain, and a pig pen, but am kind of stuck on ideas for scatter. I was thinking I could just do a bunch of "junk" (but even that, what junk would make sense?), and given the cantankerous nature of gremlins, a couple of rough and ready "walls" to hide behind and shoot make sense to me, but I am kind of stuck on other smaller pieces to break up the table and provide some interesting terrain options, so thought I would turn to the hive mind here. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Is Fingers too expensive?

    Well it's just as the tittle of the topic says. I've asked myself this question almost since the first time I used him. I mean he usually delivers (or used to, in the CG 2016 he feels much less useful for some reason) but at the same time he does no damage and he's not that resilient at all, so any opponent will get rid of him pretty easily, and that's 10ss, or more, wasted. Any thoughts on this?
  6. Have original Ophelia Outcasts metal box set (only Ophelia has light undercoat) all other models (Francois, Raphael, Rami, Pere Ravage) as new still in bags, cards unopened. Will post pictures ASAP, looking for Neverborn mainly or anything out of the ordinary (maybe even Jacob Lynch) or reasonable ££ offer (UK based but will ship world wide) Thanks
  7. Hey guys ito me McPigish, I've just releasedone a bonus episode 11 "dimitri and the wyrd" It's a chat with dimitri from yorkfaux about a game we recently played at the outpost event "the quick and the wyrd" by Dan Haslam. It's not a full show but the interview I recorded with dimitri is too good not to release that's why it's a bonus. Check out this and all the back episodes here McPigish.podbean.com
  8. ^^ This one corner of my display board, that I started making to show off my as yet to be completed models. I also have posted this previously on the wyrd place fb group so if you've seen it before that is probably why T'other side of the board - home to the all important Still! Behind some flimsy camoflage lol View of the still. I made it with a piece of cork (covered by plasticard), a button, a bit of a wooden dowel, and the metal tubing is a paper clip I messed with quite a bit. I made some 'bolts' on the still, with paint, added some weathering powder for soot - first time I used it so I wanted to experiment a bit. I did a little coal fire under the whole still, sitting on a metal frame (matchsticks). The rocks are bits of cork left over from cutting out the rounds for the bases. ^^ Here's a little collage of the outhouse. here's the pigpen: (well it might fit Gracie. I didn't realize the wild boars for instance came on the bigger bases ><) here's a close up of my fave part, the trough: The idea is kind of a 'omg what would gremlins actually feed their pigs?!' here so I took some bits of left over sprue, some hotglue, and realistic water and came up with a trough of unmentionables. While the inspiration for the whole board is pretty obviously the bayou, I also got a lot of inspiration from living here in Georgia. The base was coated with burnt sienna, to help try to portray the red clay soil we have here. If I'd kept the foliage the way it really ought to be, based on how it grows here in wild areas, you'd never see the board lol so I tried to add just enough to help liven it up some. Already working on my concept for its next component, being as how I just bought a bunch more Gremlins that won't fit on this board lol but first I promised myself I'd actually build and finish some of the Bayou box I already have.
  9. I've just got around to writing up Battle Reports for my last three games on my blog. It's hard to remember everything that happens in a game of Malifaux - primarily because a lot happens! - so these reports are summaries instead of a turn-by-turn analysis. I hope they are interesting nonetheless! 50ss Ulix vs. Mei Feng 50ss Ulix vs. Shenlong Old Major vs. The Daimyo - Shifting Loyalties Campaign Week 1 I'll be writing up more of our Shifting Loyalties campaign games, hopefully on a regular basis. I'll update this thread when I do!
  10. Hi to all, my name is Nikolaj and I started collecting some 40k miniatures about a year ago (with 34 ). I loved painting those little guys at the beginning, but without having an option to play, I got bored by painting the same kind of figure over and over again. At the beginning of this year a fellow told me about Malifaux ... I really liked the style of the setting and the artworks, but was sceptical about the model-quality (I was told GW is producing the BEST plastic) ... I bought a test-model (Ryle) and I was really impressed about the quality itself but also about how well the style of the artwork was transfered to the model. Surprisingly two more fellows in my team also were interested in Malifaux, so I decided to sell the whole GW-Stuff and buy a bunch of malifaux boxes (The Kin, So´mer, Ulix, War-Pig, Haulers, Piglets and Gracie)... a lot of stuff to paint now ... I also had two games were recently. My gremlins (Kin only so far) were crushed... but it was damn fun. So here are my first painted gremlins. I start with Gracie (it´s the last model I painted) ... more pictures of some of the Kin will follow (have to take some pictures... and without a lightbox I am a little dependent on the weather)

    Ophelia fanart

    I have seen some nice fanart uploaded to this forum category, since there's no fanart sub forum I guess this is the correct place. Say hi to Ophelia LaCroix and her kin, although they’re busy putting the fear of green on some fellas. I hope you like it.
