  1. so something was thinking on the other day. one of the great thing about malifaux is the diversity in characters. i've been playing been playing GW games predominantly for most of my gaming life span having only recently started malifaux. i mean in GW games 90% of the characters are caucasian males, malifaux does seem a lot more balanced (i mean a few weeks ago we had 6 people playing malifaux, the only caucasian male master was the dreamer, with lady J, zorader, linch, mei feng and ironsides making up the other 5 masters- in fact we joked i was the most discriminative (vs dwarfism) person as
  2. I know malifaux is supposed to be a game where most characters are either morally grey or darker than black, but if you were to consider some guys the good guys in this world, who would you consider to fill that mostly scarce position. Here is my opinion on who are the most morally correct masters in Malifaux, per faction, in no particular order Bayou Ulix: there is literally nothing wrong about ulix, the guy is very smart and cunning but there doesnt seem to be malice in his cunning, his particular story makes a pretty great effort in showing him as a caring person that values
  3. Hello I did something stupid the other day as I bought Molly's box. Dont get me wrong: the minis are incredible and certainly useful to any ressurs player. It's just that I already have plenty of minis to paint and I should limit my purchases... Anyway, as I was studying the crew and how to play it, I was wondering how exactly to define a horror. I know a model is a horror when it is written on its card, but how would you define it to somebody who does not know the game. The other day I told a friend they are pieces of dead meat all put together to form an undead entity, but I'm not
  4. Does anyone have a list of all the currently released stories that are based in (or give information on) the stories Earthside? I'm sure TOS' book will have a ton in it, but I want to give the currently released stuff a look-through before then
  5. Hi all! I would love to know all the fluff from start to end, the reason I'm posting here, and please forgive me if this is dumb, I am wondering if there is a good order/ way to absorb it all? I know there's the books, the podcast, the newsletters. Do all of these contain the same stories or is it spread out between all of these media?
  6. What do other Neverborn think of Gremlins, and vice versa? We don't seem to have much fluff talking about the interaction between Gremlins and other Neverborn, and it seems like something that would be cool to hear more about. Is Lilith our queen too? Would Nekima use our help? Do silurids normally eat us, or is it just The First Mate? Are we on Titania's hit list? So many questions! What are your theories and things you want to know about Gremlins and other Neverborn?
  7. WHO ARE THE TEN THUNDERS? Last week I injured my hand, rendering me unable to paint for some time. I've been itching to do some hobby stuff and now I have an idea for what: This thread will be a showcase of my painted TT models (photographed badly) coupled with a bits of fluff writing. The world of Malifaux is so rich in details and flavour, and I've often found myself imagining a place for the models I paint in it. The named characters are, of course, well established, as is the general relationships between the models in a faction, but the actual organizations, people and places ar

    Zipp's ship

    So, I've been trying to know more about Zipp's airship. All the information I could find about it is that it was an experimental airship stolen by Zipp, that he named it Infamy, and that Earl Burns was the lead engineer of it before he got kidnapped. This leaves sooo many questions! Who was it stolen from? What is the size of it? What size is zipp's regular crew? How many pianos can you fit in it? Etc. Can you guys help me find more sources of information about it? Like malifaux books, through the breach books or official podcasts. Thanks!
  9. I'm running a through the breach game in a few days and I'm working on the story. I just wanted to ask, what do you call a bar in the Malifaux world. Is it a: pub, inn, tavern, bar. Any help would be appreciated!
  10. I've been looking for a summoning master and Ramos' has piqued my interest. I love the whole idea of a swarm of spiders just spawning out of one scrap marker and oppressing the enemy, plus, his crew box would go nicely with my Ironsides crew (having Joss and Howard can never be a bad thing). Only one thing is kinda making me reluctant to buy him: I really dislike his fluff and his character... In all of the stories I've read, Ramos is always betraying people, or trying to deceive people. He doesn't even do it in a way that makes him interesting (eg. Lucius) and I just can't attach
  11. I am looking to build a Neverborn Lucius list that is "in theme" for him. What would the manipulative Mimic bureaucrat bring to the field? His signature pieces are the Guild Lawyers and The Scribe, so Surprisingly Loyal is an auto-include. I figure that he is allied to Mimics, so the Doppelganger and Changelings are in order. However, the rest of the NB Mimics are strongly linked to other masters (Lynch, Pandora), which is not ideal. Out-of-faction Mimics for Personal Retinue are: Guild Lawyer, Terracotta Warrior. Surprisingly Loyal opens up his hiring pool to Guardsman m
  12. Hi Guys, Could someone tell me if there are some stories in the old or the new books about Jack Daw? Thanks
  13. So wyrd has been doing some pretty great stories. Many compliments. But there is so much left to go. The world has so many characters. Not all can get screen time. I hope you agree with me that name-dropping is about the coolest thing about wyrd fluff. The feeling of reading about walking amongst legends is what I love. Please keep doing that. So I leave this here because I want you all to post characters you would like to read more about. wyrd needs to see what you guys want. Let's see them.
  14. So I'm rather curious why humans get all of the gremliny copy-cat attention. The fluff states that after humans arrived in Malifaux the gremlins started to mimic their farming practice to try and take over their pigs, develop moonshine, and fire boomguns. But haven't Neverborn been around for at least as long as the Gremlins? Aside from Sammy imitating Zoraida, why aren't there other green versions of Neverborn stuff? An easy answer is that Neverborn have a malleable appearance, and only look the way they do now because of the presence of humans. But we also know that Black Blood can b
  15. Sorry if this is already a thread, I saw there was that one about Wong up fairly high, but I think most threads revolve around actually using models in game and their crew building. I'm more curious about his story, or what he's doing. It's a fairly open question, but I'm just curious what he's about, or from whence he came? He clearly uses magic, but how did that come about? My other more broad curiosity is about Faction X Arcanist crossovers, namely the notion that anything that can cast spells might be related to Arcanist. Is this how people generally view the Arcanist Faction, as the pr
  16. While playing games at my FLGS has done a great job of attracting new players' eyes, I've had a few questions about the fluff, specifically the very beginning/setup for the world itself. I know the origin fluff was in the 1st and 1.5 edition books, but where I can point these new potential players who want to immerse themselves into the world on the very beginning? Is there a reason (since the older edition books don't have the current rules) that the origin fluff isn't on PullMyFinger as, shall we say, an appetizer? Any light shed on this question or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  17. Hey! Does anybody knows which books give a little bit of fluff about Kaeris? I need to know more about her before buying the crew. I already own the malifaux 2E book, Crossroads, Shifting Loyalties and downloaded all Wyrd Chronicles, but in all of them I just read the story of her as a child earthside. Haven't finished all the books yet and may have missed something, but anyway, I'd love some help on the matter. Greetings.
  18. Malifaux 2nd Edition Rulebook - Ophelia LaCroix: "It was an independent but identical realization to Som'er's; that it was the person with the big hat who gave the orders." It seems odd that 2nd edition Francois LaCroix and Young LaCroix (those piggy back riding ones) models have considerably bigger hats than Ophelia has. Don't get me wrong, I think that The Kin - Ophelia Box Set contains amazing models (apart from height inconsistency which has been discused several times) and I really like the fluff, I just don't understand logic behind this decision.
  19. 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 langua
  20. Hello friends, Just saw that the older books are available as pdfs. I picked up the smaller rule book for m2e, so I currently have no experience with the fluff. If I were interested in learning more about Ramos and Pandora, would the core 1.5 rule book have the background I am looking for, or should I start with the other books?
  21. Hi all, Has anybody made a list of the stories in chronological order? I was thinking of reading through everything this summer and I wanted a bit of a guide. It would be amazing if there were a list of the characters that appeared in each as well, so you could track individual journeys. I know that there was talk of a wiki a while back. Did that ever happen? Thanks! David
  22. So, if the story is supposed to be progressing forward, why has Candy reverted back to being a little girl, while, at the same time, being promoted to being a Henchwoman? What other edition change glitches​ do people wonder about?
  23. I was talking with the manager at my LFGS and we got to thinking. What if there was a book that took all the stories and fluff from the all of the previous Malifaux books and put them together in one book. It would be a useful resource to hand out to perspective players to get them interested in the game. For example, my girlfriend is interested in the world of Malifaux and wants to get a better grasp for who all these characters are and how they interact in this world, but she has zero interest in flipping through these five different books and their crunch. So yeah, what do you guys
  24. Hi, I'm sure I posted something on here previously about this but can't find it now :S Due to a recent mass conversion of players to Malifaux at my club (*looks shifty*) we had call to design an ongoing fluffy campaign. Like most leagues/campaigns it plays heavily on the 'Battle for Malifaux' document so thanks again are due to Dustin Smith for the original concept for that. Unlike most fluffy campaigns it sort based on master/hench (m/h) rather than controlling player. This mean that anybody can play with any m/h rather than people being tied to one specific m/h. We christened the c
  25. (authors note: Story contains mature content, including mature language and themes. Reader discretion is advised. Also note, liberties have been taken with certain characters that may or may not reflect cannon. I hope however that you are entertained with my portrayals.) The smoke drifted up in lazy little rings, eventually disappearing into the haze above the fogged-over streetlamp. Old force of habit that came mainly from being lost in thought. She blew the rest of the smoke out in a huff, crushing the cigarette against the streetlamp. It didn’t even taste right. Not tonight. Her eyes fe
