  1. Howdy all! This post is to let folks in the greater Atlanta Area know about the regular gaming and demos available at Gig-Bites Cafe in Marietta, Georgia in the month of August. The shop is located at 1803 Roswell Rd #1851, Marietta, GA 30062 and carries the full line of Malifaux products, as well as having a kitchen which serves sandwiches and smoothies. Regular gaming and demos are held on Wednesdays, usually after 6 PM. If you interested in our events, demos, or tournaments the local community also maintains a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/georgiamalifaux/
  2. Disclaimer: This thread will almost certainly contain images of miniatures that may or may not have all their clothing on or may or may not be deemed appropriate by any of you softy-softs out there. If you are easy to offend, this isn't the place for you and I will be making no attempt what-so-ever to facilitate to the more sensitive people within the community. Welcome to my insanity! ----------- Well I finally did it and took the plunge. I started a WIP thread in the Iron Painter 2015 forums and I was surprised at the number of views I got (over 2700 during the entire competition). I'm not sure if people looked because they were really interested or just wanted a laugh, but they viewed all the stuff I did, regardless. As such, I decided to make a large thread dedicated to all of the new projects or single minis I complete or even what I am currently working on. I will be including only Malifaux projects, for relevance sake. If any other miniatures or projects pop up chances are they are proxies or of a similar style. In other words, I'm not going to bombard you with post after post of Chaos Dwarves because chances are you're not viewing a Malifaux forum to see Chaos Dwarves. The only things I don't share are my major projects. I do one a year and I keep them a secret until they are done. As soon as it is done, though, it will show up here. My approach to miniature painting is achieving what I call "premium tabletop" standard - the kind of stuff you'd expect to see in an issue of Warhammer Visions or on the front of packaging/cards promoting the game. What you should not expect to see is fancy schmancy plinth pieces - I want to be able to use what I paint so most of my stuff will have a little utility in place of being completely artsy-fartsy. Do not expect NMM - unless I am painting a giant Japanese robot or a bunch of pretty elves (fat chance). Do not expect OSL - I feel that it was innovative 10 years ago but now it is gimmicky an usually out of place. If you want to see someone who uses OSL as an actual creative style rather than just a convenient gimmick - check out Spiraling Cadaver's stuff on the forums here - that's how it should be used! What you should expect to see in this thread is gritty realism - I try to make my minis look natural and dark - for the most part. The spectrum for me is somewhere between gritty realism and grim-dark. I know, I know - they don't "pop" like the currently popular style of overly saturated super bright and pretty cartoony looking models - but then, not all of us want Dreamer crews that incorporate lime green, baby blue, hot pink, and yellow-as-fuck into them. I want my models to look tough and realistic - not like the little tiny toys they actually are. You will, however, probably see a lot of layering/blending/wash (glaze) techniques, battle damage, micro-painting, weathering, creative base design, and enough free-hand to keep you entertained. My hope is that this thread helps to keep me regular and interested in submitting pictures of my work as much, if not more, than my IP 2015 WIP Thread did. As a side note - the first post will be a collection of all my WIP posts for IP 2015 so that you can quickly skim them, but mostly because they will need a home once the Iron Painter sub-forum goes bye-bye. After that, I believe I owe zFiend a Zombie Pig - from that point on, though, the sky's the limit. Enjoy! I am fully open to comments and critique or even throwing ideas at me to bring to realization. Assuming that they are appropriately explicit - I just might prioritize it from within my hobby queue, which I can assure you, is long and distinguished. Thanks for looking - expect regular updates - I am a fairly consistent hobbyist and like to keep busy all the time. As such, feel free to follow this thread, if you so desire.
  3. I've decieded I'll start a blog on this here site, it seems to make sense being as most of my hobby focuses around Wyrd games. I also run a blog on Wordpress, so it'll be the same post as on here, if I like posting here more I might move over altogether, but will see for now. First up, a look back on my hobby for the past year seems to be a decent place to start..... I've been meaning to do a little look back on what I've been up to last year in both gaming and painting, as much as for myself as for the blog. It being a fair old while since my last post I thought I'd better. Thinking back to the start of 2015 gaming wise I was still playing a lot of Molly and got my highest placing of the year at the leauge of Extraordinary Henchman in January (6/30). I played in four tournaments from Jan to March, LoEH sat and sun, Vapnartak and Lemonentry, using Molly in 3 and Viks in 1. I then had a massive tournament hiatus not going to another one until September, playing a lot of Guildball in the time between as well as Malifaux. I sold most of my Resser collection in the spring and then learnt how to play Kirai, using her in tournaments for the rest of the year. Attending From the Shadows, Drunken Monkey, Into the Quarantine Zone and the UKGT 2015. Best result from these was probably the UKGT, finishing 32/88, winning 4/7 games. Favourite tournament of the year was the UKGT, it was an awesome weekend, as weekend events tend to be, 7 great games and the social side was amazing, not least because the of the awesome night out on the Saturday. I must say 2 day tournaments are by far my favourite because of the total immersion you enter into, but these are few and far between for me due to family commitments etc which makes them all the more special. So a total of 8 Malifaux tournaments in 2015 which is fairly low considering 2014 was 10. I have a feeling there'll be more for me this year. Non-malifaux and Guildball gaming consisted of family gaming, Puppet Wars (fricking love this game) a game of Dreadfleet and the usual board style games, Forbidden Island, Dobble, Takenoko, Small World, Ticket to Ride, Love Letter, Zombicide etc. Painting has been pretty lacklustre this year for me I think. The year started with me finishing of a 30K Worldeaters army commission Another Commission in the form of a high level Fisherman team for Guildball After this I decided I was giving up commision painting for several reasons so focused back on painting up my own models. I Painted up a couple of Puppets Also a full Puppet crew, in a week, to play Malifaux in the GT Did some Dreadfleet terrain and other bits (not finished) Painted and textured some boards to make a gaming table Made myself a paint rack Put together two Guildball teams, made a goal and painted one model Painted some random Malifaux models that needed finishing And pretty much finished painting the whole of my Kirai crew So actually looking at it like that I've just convinced myself I haven't been too unproductive with the painting/hobby in 2015, I just haven't painted many Malifaux crews I guess. Awards for painting in tournaments? Well, I entered into 4/8 best painted competitions of the tournaments I went to (really seems like more than that, actually shocked that it's that low!) Of the 4, I won best painted once with my Viks crew and placed 2nd in best painted trinity of models. 1/4 and 1 2nd place isn't bad at all, happy with that. Next up I think I'll write a post on what I'll be planning on doing in the coming year and my aims/goals for it, so until then! Bye
  4. HEYLO everyone! On behalf of the Dutch Malifaux Guild I'm proud to announce our next Hobby and Gaming meetup, this time in central south Holland: the beautiful Den Bosch! I have some Malifaux and want to play Bring it. We got about 7 people confirmed coming and enough space to play. I want to get into Malifaux Awesome!

You'll find Tim (our Alphen a/d Rijn henchman) and myself there, as well as about 40 other Dutch Malifaux players you can chat with or set up games with. SO COME OUT AND PLAY Cheers ~Seb
  5. Hey guys, Just wanted everyone to know that we're still running Malifaux through June at the Coliseum of Comics in the Fashion Square Mall.

  12. Good evening Malifans! My name is Jamie an I'm from sunny Stoke-on-Trent in the UK (although I'm originally from Nottingham, home of Robin Hood!). Back when I was 13 (half my life ago) me and my friends were introduced by some spotty, nerdy types to a miniature wargame called Warhammer 40k. We swiftly built and rather choppily painted models (Blood Angels for me, thanks!) for about a year until we got distracted by other facets of teen-age such as growing mustaches and kissing girls. But in those 12 months, me, and one of my closest friends James, really developed something of a passion for the hobby which would lay dormant in both of us until we moved into our late twenties. About four months ago we started up armies again (Tau this time!) and have been painting and modelling away since with a view to getting some serious games on. We went to Warhammer World (about 5 minutes away from James' house, which is odd because the first time we were into 40k we lived 5 minutes from the old Citadel factory in Eastwood, Notts!) last week and battled for hours on end, loving every second! While looking around for other ways of getting my hobby geek on (namely browsing iTunes for some good 40k podcasts (I'm loving 40k radio at the mo)) I stumbled across the D6 Generation. I joined the D6G fanbase on their 50th show when they reviewed and talked (at some length!) about Malifaux. The second they began talking about the game they became so excited that I wanted to play before I'd heard more than the name and that it was a steampunk/Victorian horror melange of pure awesome. I've bugged my girlfriend into letting me order the rule book and I can't tear my eyes away from the pictures of the minis. I've not worked out what faction or crew I want to play, but I'm already recruiting my friends and making them as excited about this as I am! In other news, I'm a huge lover of movies, books, comics, videogames and just about anything sci-fi. I also do a bit of writing, fantasy/sci-fi world creation, and make films (I have a ba (hons) in media production and worked for four years in a production company in Stoke as an editor, producer, writer and director). I'd love to have a go at being a DM, and have tried to find a decent Firefly game to play (incidentally, I think that the Malifaux mechanics and some of the characters would fit in well with Firefly, so I'm going to try and work something out once I've gotten the hang of it!). My girlfriend is in love with the USA so we might be looking to move there in the future. We have a mental cat called Walter (the missus tells people that he's named after Mr Disney, but I tell folks he's named after the awesome Walter Bishop!) and a rabbit called Goliath. I think I've said enough for one day! If you are a bit of an information freak, ask me for more and I'll probably tell you! I look forwards to meeting all of you and hearing more of your travels in the wonderful world of Malifaux! Toodleoo! Jamie
