  2. Hi fellow wyrdos, I´ve got some questions to those of you responsible for managing your local community: how do you keep your players attached to the local flgs, during these times of black friday, easter and gen con sales? Our local shop seems worried about the recent pre-release policy of wyrd, he says sales of all the new stuff since the Emissary-release is declining, seemingly because the players buy them at large during wyrds big sales. I don´t want to be the guy to tell others where and what to buy, plus who can blame them, it`s just so temtping to get all the shiny new stuff months before general release, the shop just can`t compete with that. I´ve started sort of an event and demo game offensive to get more people to play in general, maybe the new ones will provide a boost, but who knows? I keep telling everyone who wants to hear it that we should support the local store as he provides gaming space and has great stock for nearly everything you might need in the hobby, but I fear he could stop supporting events if my players don`t realise that soon :/ Has anybody else encountered similar problems? How would you manage it? I´ve not yet reached wits end, but would be glad to get some input regarding this Greetings Tris PS: don`t know where to put a topic like that, so I chose "discussions"
  3. This will be my fourth year in a row attending Gen Con, the largest gaming convention in North America; Gen Con is my favorite time of year (seriously, I plan my year around this) and I know that not everyone can make it out the convention, so last year I decided to do a series of blog posts to share my adventures with the denizens of the internet so that those who can’t make it out to Gen Con can still get a little taste of the fun. Those posts turned out to be so popular and greatly appreciated that I’ve decided not only to once again do a series of posts on my adventures at Gen Con, but I will also have a gallery page that I will be updating occasionally throughout the day. In less that 72 hours Gen Con will be kicking off, so check back here to see all the insanity!

    Gen Con 2014 Wyrd Tournaments

    Greetings, Malifaux players! I will be returning this year once more to oversee and run the official Malifaux events for Wyrd Miniatures at Gen Con 2014 in Indianapolis, IN, this August 14th through 17th. All of the official tournaments being run will adhere to the Gaining Grounds 1.0 rules, which are available at this link (or in the Downloads section under the Game Files category) so please download and review this document. I'm happy to answer any questions, but it's highly likely Gaining Grounds has already addressed your specific question. Some of the details below are still being fleshed out, and are subject to change over the next month. I will make no changes after July 31st except in the event of an emergency clarification, and I will make sure to note the changes made at the bottom of this post and in a separate post for people who Follow the topic. Without further ado, the following is a list of events being run, in chronological order. The titles link to the Gen Con event page (sign-in at the Gen Con site required) if you wish to sign up for any of these events. And please do sign up early, other than the Achievement League every tournament is limited to the first 32 people who sign up and they're already filling up! Malifaux Achievement League Bring your Malifaux gear and play on your own schedule. From Thursday 10am through Saturday 10pm, come out to the Event Hall, find an available table and an opponent, then play games of Malifaux but with goals in mind. The Achievement League doesn't just encourage you to play to win, it makes you try new ways to play, with unusual goals and challenges. As you play and finish your games, find a Henchman or Tournament Organizer to sign off on your achievements. Be sure to come to the Wyrd booth in the Dealer's Hall on Sunday at 4pm, as we will be giving out prizes! This is an event for all players and all skill levels. You don't need to be a pro to join this event, you could even be playing some of your first games ever! When: Thursday 10am through Saturday 10pm. Important Note: Packets can be turned in to the TO's desk in the Event Hall until 12pm Sunday, but no more achievements will be awarded after Saturday 10pm. Cost: $2.00 First Into the Breach (Story Encounter Event) Ready to play Malifaux a little differently? The Story Encounter Events are designed to give you an unique approach to playing Malifaux. Instead of normal Strategies, each round in the story encounter wraps around a special event with unique rules and victory point conditions. This event is designed for players of all skill and experience levels. When: Thursday 4pm through 9pm. Length: 2 rounds, 120 minutes per round plus an extra 15 minutes for setup and rules absorption. (Yes, the rounds are intentionally slightly longer than normal.) Faction: Fixed Faction. Crew Size: 50ss Scheme Pool: Will be announced at the tournament. Cost: $6.00 The Hanging Tree (Avatar Qualifier 1) Do you think you have what it takes to stand above the rest of the Malifaux players? The Avatar of Malifaux tournament is a three part event, two qualifying tournaments and an invitational event on Sunday for the top four players of each qualifier. Bring your A-game and be prepared to face the best and most enthusiastic players in Malifaux! It's going to be a great event. When: Friday 9am through 4pm. Length: 3 rounds, 105 minutes per round plus an extra 15 minutes for setup and rules absorption. There will be an hour break for lunch after the second round (around 1pm). Faction: Fixed Faction.

Cost: $6.00 Last Off the Train (Story Encounter Event) Just like the Thursday Story Encounter event, this is a special and unique approach to playing Malifaux. Instead of the normal Strategies, you will be going two rounds of an interconnected short story in the Malifaux world, and your crews will be facing special rules and scoring methods. This event is designed for players of all skill and experience levels. When: Friday 6pm through 11pm. Length: 2 rounds, 120 minutes per round plus an extra 15 minutes for setup and rules absorption. (Yes, the rounds are intentionally slightly longer than normal.) Faction: Fixed Faction. Crew Size: 50ss Scheme Pool: Will be announced at the tournament. Cost: $6.00 Governor's Mansion (Avatar Qualifier 2) The second event of the Avatar of Malifaux qualifier tournament. Just like the first event, the top four players in this event will be invited to play in the Avatar of Malifaux finals on Sunday morning. When: Saturday 9am through 4pm. Length: 3 rounds, 105 minutes per round plus an extra 15 minutes for setup and rules absorption. There will be an hour break for lunch after the second round (around 1pm). Faction: Fixed Faction. Crew Size: 50ss Strategies and Deployment: Round 1: Turf War (Standard Deployment) Round 2: Reckoning (Corner Deployment) Round 3: Squatter's Rights (Standard Deployment) Scheme Pool: Will be announced at the tournament. Cost: $6.00 Avatar of Malifaux (Masters' Final Event) The top eight players in the qualifying tournaments meet once more to battle it out for the title of Avatar of Malifaux. Each round will be played as Single Elimination. The remaining two players will then play their final game as an exhibition in the Event Hall at the Wyrd booth. Don't miss this event! Be sure to stick around after the final match for other announcements, including but not limited to the results of the Achievement League. When: Sunday 9am through 4pm. Length: 3 rounds, 105 minutes per round plus an extra 15 minutes for setup. Important Note: The first two rounds will be played in the Event Hall. Lunch will occur at 1pm after the second round.

Crew Size: 50ss Strategies and Deployment: Round 1: Stake a Claim (Standard Deployment) Round 2: Reconnoiter (Flank Deployment) Round 3: Turf War (Close Deployment) Scheme Pool: Will be announced at the tournament. If there are any lingering questions, please don't hesitate to contact me in this post or via the Private Message system. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at Gen Con 2014! Edited 6/25: Added deployments to Qualifier and Avatar events. Thanks to sharpobjects for the reminder.

  6. Hiya, On my first Gen con order the Pay pal site seemingly didn't realise that UK means foreign and only charged me for domestic US postage, which I didn't notice until I did my second order and noticed the discrepancy. Is there anything I need to do to fix this?

    Gen Con 2011

    Not sure where really to post this so Moderators feel free to move. I attended last year my first Gen Con and loved it. I noticed other than the Wyrd booth (which i spent way more money than I had budgeted ) there were empty tables in the card hall where a few people played miniatures game including Malifaux. Is this where the forum people will be meeting, greeting and playing? If not where and when. We have our gaming club from up north Canada going done to play.
  8. While at Gen Con I stopped by the Wells Expeditions booth to get the lowdown on this upcoming "collectible mass-action miniatures game" direct from company President Ray Wehrs. He explains the new game's business model and just what comes in each of the boxes here: http://thescreamingalpha.com/2009/08/19/ray-wehrs-of-wells-expeditions-explains-arcane-legions/ And gives a brief gameplay demo here: http://thescreamingalpha.com/2009/08/19/video-demo-of-arcane-legions-gen-con-2009/ I'll be interested to see if Wells can bring the CMG model into the mass wargaming space, even in such a simplified way. Judging from the big crowds they drew throughout the con, though, they may have at least a fighting chance.

MHE Guest of Honor – Jérémie Bonamant Teboul Jérémie is a master globetrotting painter from France, known worldwide for his beautiful use of color, ambiance and technique. His articles and tutorials have been widely published in modeling and miniatures magazines around the world and on his website at []www.jeremiebt.com]. Most recently he's become one of the creators of a new miniatures company called Kraken Editions. Jérémie was young when he fell into the bottomless cauldron of obsessive and maniacal miniature painting. Hyperactive and persevering, Jérémie just can't help his painting frenzy. While already busy with sports and social activities, Jérémie managed to transform his passion into a full time job. He is unavoidable on many French mailing lists dedicated to the painting hobby. He has an innate talent for putting together a vast network of other passionate painters around the world. He describes himself as a "couldn't give a damn, clumsy and not so creative guy," and often says he uses many hints and tips discovered by others. Always willing to chat, speak, babble, natter and share his passion, Jérémie ceaselessly wanders around the world to meet people as crazy as him. He'll be giving classes, demos, and participating in various MHE events, as well as exhibiting some of his finished work in the MHE display cases. * * * * * * * 16 days and counting!
