  1. Do you have any favourite cinematic experiences which make you think of Malifaux? This is a long post and I've bolded the links to my reccomendations... I've just rewatched a movie I've seen three years ago and it made me think of which movies I remember when I'm reading Malifaux stories or seeing its artwork. These movies are all of quite different genres, but they all share a certain feeling of surrealism. They also share some of my favourite directors (Jean Pierre-Jenuet, Alejanro Jodorowsky and Takashi Miike) and all are visually enticing. Most of the movies aren't in English language and some are definitely not safe for work and have mature audiences ratings. The movie that looks the most and even feels like Malifaux is The City of Lost Children. I don't know if I should introduce it much since it's a cult classic. Set in a dystopian out of time steampunk world, a silent hero and a little girl (a heroine) are on a quest to save the dreaming children. This movie is even suitable for children even if it's a bit dark looking. Also another movie from the same director is a postapocalyptic movie set somewhere in the past: Delicatessen. A movie about street performer who starts living in an apartment building after he lost his monkey and some strange things start happening (I don't want to spoil much). It's also not very brutal (and it could have been considering its title) and has some adventurous scenes. Both movies have broken down buildings in them and are set in vast old urban settings, very much like Malifaux. I've just watched The Last Circus again. It's a very violent and a quite sexual flick and later in the movie it becomes quite a bit crazy and it nearly becomes a horror film. Atmosphere is set in the past and even if it's mostly set in seventies it feels out of time and reality. The movie has an artistic meld of beauty and ugliness. It also contains Penguins (lol auto-corrected c-l-o-w-n-s), so I wouldn't reccomend it to everyone... it's definitely not for children. The scenes of battle on the beginning and near the end of the movie resemble weird scenes and locations that might as well be situated somewhere in Malifaux. For the most part the story itself reminds me of a lot of background stories I've read for Malifaux. This is a weirdest one I'm mentioning and don't let the low budget looks decieve you, it's a great movie and an awesomely weird western: El Topo. It's a weird spiritual quest for excellence, undertaken by a gunslinger, which takes him on a trip through desert and he finds himself in awkward situation after he's reached his goal (again I don't want to spoil the movie too much). It's a movie about human corruption and I would reccomend it only for mature viewers... yes there is violence and weird scenes, but it has a bit of a hidden meaning in it, so it's not for people wanting action of a western or even gore. It's not trying to be smart and you'll need to relax into the movie to experience it beyond weirdness (it tries to toy with the watchers emotions). The movie seems dated but it's before its time in some aspects. This movie is a much easier watching, because it's an action/adventure set in the time of French Revolution: Brotherhood of the Wolf. It seems like a werewolf story (which it isn't), it has an indian in it, martial arts, Monica Belluci and weird cults. The secret society and its conflict reminds me of Malifaux and maybe most of Lucius because of the french costumes and deranged aristocracy. There is also a poacher society which screams Wyrd and I don't want to spoil anything. This should be a fairly popular action flick... Next two are somewhat similar because they have a colonial theme set in familiar outlandish settings of Africa and Orient. Ok, both are happening on real locations, but the stuff that happens seems outlandish and it has its own mythology. First one is The Ghost and the Darkness, set in Africa near a railroad building site where strange animal related murders have been happening. I'm mostly not a fan of Michael Douglas, but this is one of the two movies with him that I loved. Second one is The Bird People in China, set in deep wilderness of China filled with jade deposits. There are no weird bird people in the movie (I'm sorry), but that doesn't mean that the movie hasn't got its wonders. This is by far the tamest of the movies I've mentioned here, but it shows how modern civilization can change a traditional lifestyle and rewrite its mythologies in a bizzarely poetic way. Lastly I'll post a link to a short animated film on youtube called Backwater Gospel. I've seen it posted on A Wyrd Place on Facebook, so I'm reposting it here There is another cartoon I've seen as a kid, but I can't remember its name... I'll post a link to an article about it when I find it. EDIT Dead Man is one of my favourite movies, but I want to rewatch it before reccomending it for Malifaux like atmosphere. I just don't want to reccomend it just because it's a great movie and the reason I love Jim Jarmusch's style. I just remembered that I want to rewatch the movie Vidocq with Gerard Depardeiu. I can't remember much about it. I drifted away while watching it the last time. It had some intense visuals and I remember that it had some light-fantastic elements set in Victorian age, but that's it. Also a question from me: is there a more Malifauxy' movie visually/thematically similar to Gangs of New York or Moulin Rogue? I can't remember if I've seen or heard of anything similar... Sin City is not it.
  2. I’m new to attempting to play Malifaux on Vassal. I have the program on my PC and have the Malifaux add-on already installed, although I may need to update it. When I get ready to sit down to play, I have no clue what to do. How does one set up strays and schemes? How does one go about hiring the crew? Any assistance one can provide would be greatly appreciated.
  3. Since my Collection of painted Guild models growing fast I decided to start a new topic dedicated to the Guild as a whole. Sorry for posting some photos again, but I want newcomers for my topic to see all of my miniatures. So lets get to the models I painted previously.
  4. Hi all, my daughter picked up a Pandora box for me for christmas, so I managed to paint the first model. Loved it, the base it's still an idea. I quite like to leave them empty just with the glow, Creepy! I'll post the rest of the crew when done

  6. Good news everyone! After some success and growing interest of the community on my bayou gremlins painting topic I decided to share my progress on LJ and her butt-hurting department with ya all. So LJ are coming to punish ressers and undead things. I’ll upload all my progress on painting marshal keyword and will appreciate your support folks!
  7. So I am quite new to the forums, so I decided to make myself a hobby thread of some of the Malifaux models which I have painted. I am still quite new to the game only really starting to get into it a year ago, but have been quite hooked. First is my latest and main crew, Asami. I love painting these models... but am so happy I never have to do anything like Ama no Zako ever again. These were all done mainly with contrast paints which I just love for Malifaux models and then highlighted afterwards. The spiders were the biggest pain in the ass... so many legs! Then we have the MVO (very important oni) Ama no Zako herself. She is my designated Archie killer as my friend usually play Molly, so she deserved a fancy paint job. Then we have my two versatile models that I most often take with her... though after the FAQ I don't really see me taking Yasunori that often... which is a shame. Still have a lot to get for this crew, but this is what I got so far. Later I will post my other models.
  8. This is my 3rd topic and its all about necromancers! I’ll upload my progress on ressurectionists slowly but surely. I started to paint the faction with the first miniature I bought for malifaux - Seamus the Red Chapel killer. Seamus is one of the best (in my opinion) when it comes to the model itself (just look at his nasty smile) and fluff. NOTE: I actually repaint Seamus as I didn't liked my previous result (painted last year). The old one looked like this: The new version felt faaaaar better, especially his face. Next coming are: - Carrion Emissary - Asura Roten - Mindless Zombies
  9. Hey folks! Since we'are all in the "stay at home" mode I forced myself to paint me first gremlin crew - The Bayou Boss. Well, its still in process, but the biggest hat and his dumbster are completely finished (dtill need water effect on bases, which I expect to make ASAP).
  10. Hello I have been a Malifaux player for more than four years now. I have mostly played arcanists, but I do own minis from every faction to be honest. All this time, I took part in the monthly painting challenge (check out the threads of the current challenge!). I even ran it in 2018. But I wanted to take a break this year and paint minis that are not necessarily from Malifaux. Without the pressure of the challenge, I am even slower than usual. Anyway here is my first mini of the year, Black Widow from Marvel crisis protocol:
  11. Greetings All -- this month is going to be a tough one and I've been reluctant to post up for demos but I think if we practice good social distancing and utilize other means... we just may be able to do this demo thing for Malifaux 3rd Edition. So, with all this pandemic response and responsibilities in mind, I've determined that we can do some demos over VASSAL. VASSAL has a lot of various game 'modules' for playing games and the one for Malifaux is great. With this in mind, please get in touch and I'll be checking the boards for those interested. I'll take the time to set up a virtual VASSAL Malifaux game table and run you thru a demo game. Also - you've got a few more days of the Easter Sale at your fingertips! Catch you at the <virtual> game table! All the Best ~James
  12. Hi there, Although I am rather new to playing Malifaux, I have enjoyed painting this characterful miniatures for quite a while. I started painted miniatures back in the days as Rackham's Confrontation range was still around - so that'd be some some years ago…. As you see, I am not fixed to a single faction but since I am mainly a painter, that's ok, I guess 😎 Please leave a comment if you like! First, we have the Neverborn minis from the M2E starter. I am really happy how they turned out: Of Course, here are their antagonists as well: However, the first Malifaux minis I have painted are Nellie and her crew: Next, we have the crazy old cat Lady, Catelin Abernathy, and her entourage: There are a lot more cats than the ones near Benny Wolcomb….

  20. My first post here but I've been scrolling through for a bit. I know it's a little past the holiday season now but finally found the time to finishing this up. Thought it's be cool to make The Old Ways... Of Christmas! Also sleeved up a matching fate deck, made some scheme markers, and made some ice pillars to go with the crew. I liked the thought of the giants jumping outa boxes or shoving other people in them with Thoon and yeeting them across the table. haha I was maybe going to turn a Boltungin into Rudolph too. Any idea what to do with the Geryon when they come out? Was thinking either painting them up as a piece of fruit cake or a glob of eggnog lol.
