  1. Hey everyone, I was wondering which Avatar models are metal and which ones are not. I thought that they all were until I saw that Hoffman has a plastic avatar. so, I know there's a nightmare chompy bits which would make a total of three, (1.5E metal, 1.5E Nightmare metal, 2e plastic) but by my count I see at least 4? could someone help me out with this? Would love a list of the avatars and whether they are metal or plastic Would love to know if there are additional models of these and why the additional sculpts (not counting, miss, or nightmares)
  2. Wyrd makes the best, most flavorful models in the game. And they do some of the most interesting stuff in terms of limited editions and alternate color ways. Curious if there's ever been a discussion about making more models like Lazarus that combine the translucent grey plastic and some decorative colored plastics for key bits? E.g. The base Lynch box would be awesome if his skeleton/Hungering Darkness was translucent purple by default. Likewise with Kareis' wings. Some figures don't lend themselves well to the translucent treatment, e.g. Perdita, but would anyone else be interested in seeing some multi-color kits that provided some flexibility for hobbyists? Traditionalists could always paint over the colored plastic and completionists could buy the fully-colored kits. If nothing else, it might be an interesting way to do the "bonus models" for the retail promotions. Instead of a fig for a random faction you get something that spruces up the kit you're buying.
  3. I've been making a list of all the models that haven't been realeased in plastic yet. Also, I've tried to collect some of the art that is scattered over the web. I think that the people that are starting in the faction (like myself) will find it useful. Masters (0) - Henchmen (1) Spawn Mother Totems (0) - Enforcers (0) - Minions (2) Stitched Together Gupps Total (3)
  4. Rhetorical question, of course. I'm not silly enough to start asking for alternative master models before all the master boxes have been released (unless of course you run out of Gencon Miss ideas - right after Miss Understood - the emo teen ronin, naturally). This is more "what does everyone want to see as an alt scult for their favorite models?" Personally, I feel this game will never be complete without a von Schill who is in the middle of tearing his shirt off - perhaps in a post-shirt macho pugilism pose? orrrrrr some kind of Alex Armstrong (FMA) homage? I'd settle for a Lady Justice tearing her shirt off, I guess. Ideas?
  5. Hello! I've watched this forum for a long time. I love to play puppet wars and evil baby orphanage, so I thought I would try Malifaux. I bought three starter sets on Black Friday and finally got a chance to paint one master. I assembled the rest of his crew and posted them next to him. Looks really nice. I was afraid of so many parts and how well they would turn out but it was easier than I thought with more skin intact than I thought too. This is my first miniatures game. I normally play board games. Over the last year I've been trying to improve my painting- there are a lot of amazing artists on this forum and I love to look at your pictures. I really have enjoyed all the tidbits of information and tips that you all leave here and there. Mako's guides are really awesome and helped me understand a lot of subtle ideas/concepts. Please, C&C welcome. I love to learn what would make something better. I wanted to keep the colors on the mini close to the box art. I like the box art a lot. Basing is something I have never done. So I think for now I want to keep it simple. I got "green stuff"-like stuff and then used a stamp to make the tile flooring. My mom is a scrapbooker so I stole some ideas from her for Ramos's and Lynch's bases. They are plumber's tape rolled through this thing that imprints a design. I sculpted Seamus's bases from a tutorial I found here! http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/159382/my-painted-games-wip-pic-heavy :Here is my journal of painting as I try to learn more and improve my painting if anyone is interested/would like to give me some pointers. Thanks for looking!
  6. There is another thread on QC generally so I will try not to create a totally paralell post here, but I have a specific question on how figures are made now and I think it raises to the level of having its own topic (in the MM forum no less). My inference of how this generally works at Wyrd is as follows... 1. A 2D artist does up an image of a figure dreamed up by the design team. (Top-notch artists BTW, I am loving their work.) 2. A 3D render is made to bring that image to life on the TT. 3. That render is sent to the caster who 3D prints it and uses this as a master for mold making. 4. The mold is made and figures are cast from it. Now there is probably more back and forth play between these 4 essential steps and perhaps someone other than the caster does the master print, but I figure it goes something like that. So in this process, how do scale issues occur? Can't that be seen in ratios/measurements on the screen in the 3D rendering program where you could just scale up or down? Do wyrd make a master and put it next to established figures in the line? I really like Malifaux and the current aesthetic the Wyrd chose, but scale mismatches REALLY bother me. I'd really like to better understand this.
  7. So I just recently got into Malifaux and I fell in love with the Freikorps. So firstly does anyone have any idea when Wyrd will release a plastic Freikorps crew? Is it worth waiting or should I just go for the metal models? Normally I wouldn't mind a mix of new and old models but Freikorps is supposed to be uniform in appearance so that doesn't really work. Secondly does anyone know if there will be a general release Hannah? She seems to be prominently featured in 2e artwork but the "Through the Breach" kickstarter say: "Special Edition Malifaux Sculpt - Hannah, Chief Freikorps Archivist: We haven't even released the rules for this model yet, but we are already giving you the opportunity to get an exclusive sculpt of her." Does this mean she will only be released for kickstarter backers or are they referring to an exclusive sculpt not an exclusive model?
  8. Hey all, with none of my masters playable in 2.0, the one I was going to start for 2.0 got pushed back ( sad leveticus ='[ ), anyone know when the Ramos crew will be released? and what it will contain? this is my guess: Ramos brass arachnid Howard Langston 2 steamPUNK arachnid swarms/6 spiders electric creation hoping it's this side of christmas =/
  9. Hey everyone. I'm thinking of buying my first crew in the next day or two, but I've read in a few places (including this forum) and spoken to people who have mentioned that the Malifoux models are being converted from metal to plastic (or some maybe have been already?). So I was just wondering should I hold off and wait for new kits to be released, or is that going to be a long way off yet? I was going to buy the Seamus' Red Chapel Boxset, but if I thought that in a couple of months it would be getting re-released in plastic I would hold off, but if it is likely going to be 6+ months or more then I'd like to push ahead and purchase it and get gaming. Also, I have an instinctive dislike of working with metal due to my experiences with GW as their metal figures were often a b*tch to assemble and often required pinning, so I'm just wondering how you all feel about working with the existing metal Malifaux models and if your happy with the switchover?
  10. Not able to wait for GenCon, I have my new Lady-J Crew (in plastic!) Going to work on some others... All standard parts!
  11. I have made a YouTube video showing you exactly what you get in the Puppet Wars plastic deck. Check it out here on YouTube - [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVyvlJHEzI4]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVyvlJHEzI4[/ame]
