  1. I've recently started painting Malifaux models, and now I've finally finished some! First out, the Judge. I didn't really like the "official" look with a brown leather coat, so I decided to try a red one. It brings my mind to the Spanish Inquisition, English judges' robes and Alucard from "Hellsing". And all those things fits perfectly for a undead-hunting judge. Having the entire cape plain red got a little bit boring though, so I added some freehand to break it up. I also think it makes him look more special. And Captain Dashel. With this model I wanted a more practical and down to earth colour scheme. And I also wanted his colours to repeat on the guardsmen models. And finally two riflemen. They seem to work well with Dashel. I definately wanted some kind of uniform for my guardsmen models. Dark blue seemed like a good colour. Although it is not visible on these photos, the inside of the coat is light brown, to bring some contrast. The only thing I'm not quite sure about is the green pants. I was thinking about making them grey, but then the models would have very little colour on them. And I still like the green pants on Dashel.
  2. So I’ve just started this wonderful game - and now I’m finally ready for my first fight. I’ve gone with the Ortegas and tried playing around with still water fix for a swampy theme.

    Sandmanns painted stuff

    Newish player here! Coming from Warhammer via Infinity and for some time now, playing Malifaux with a few friends - for whom I also paint stuff. Feel free to comment and criticise - I'm always happy to find ways to become a better painter First off: Ressers - the McMourning starter, painted for a friend.

    Sorrow ability and saves

    Can a leader or henchman save against the sorrows ability or is it unsalable damage?
  6. So in our club we just started to try out Malifaux. Were still on Crew boxes with Little changes here and there on 35 Stones. So the first two games of Ressers vs my Neverborn where totally onesided. First game Lilith, standing behind LOS Blocking Terrain teleporting terrortots in Exchange for his key models, so he killed some tots and i killed McMourning and Sebastian and still had all my big bad beaters. Second Game was Pandora/Box, Strategy Turf War. Pandora and her Sorrows, Poltergeist took the Center of the board. To stay relevant in the Strategy he charged his melee models in, killed one sorrow. Pandora started bombing away killing McMourning and damaging 4 other models at the same time. Mood Swing + Candy permaparalysed his Flesh Construkt. He had Nothing he could do an conceded on the end of turn 2. This onesinded games are no fun for either Player, so the Question is how to bring the Fun to the game. Is McMourning just bad as a starting Master? He is right now considering to switch to Nicodem as a new master, that any better? Is McMourning just very bad against Neverborn wo seem to beat him at his own game? Is 35 Stones not enough and we should hurry to get to full 50 Stone games? His list was: McMourning (Moonlightting) Cashe 6 Sebastian (Those are not ours) Chihuahua Flesh Construct Nurse Crooked Man Necropunk Seemed allright to me but on the table it just didn´t wort out. So please help us to get fun into this game, we really want to love it, but it is hard this way.
  7. Hello Puppet-Lovers! This is going to be my first attempt at writing a Tactica for use with my favourite Master: Collodi. I used Collodi a lot in the Wave 2 Beta and think I have a good grasp of the tactics and abilities you can make use of in a Collodi crew, which I would like to share with New Players and old alike, as well as maybe give Collodi's Opponents a leg up if they are finding him a difficult Master to go up against in their local group. Let's begin with where we came from: In M1E Collodi's tactics involved spinning a small ball of marionettes into anything and having that thing die rather brutally, from just about anywhere on the board. While maintaining a lot of the same flavour in 2E Collodi is not going to fly across the board with his entire crew, that said he has never felt more like a PuppetMaster in my opinion, and I'd like to show people why, especially if theyre having trouble transitioning. StatBlock First off Collodi is a Low-Wound Master. His Df is average at 5, with good WP at 6. 5Wk makes him a little faster than average, but is going to leave some players missing his old 40" moves. However, he can push 3" after any Df targeting attack, so if youve got some low cards to toss you can attack him with your own models to push him up the board. We've also got Accomplice so he can always have a friend go after him and Puppet Friends, which gives him access to any out of faction Puppet model, which is currently Mannequins, Coryphee and the Effigies. The 6" Bubble Collodi's abilities and buffs all center around a 6" bubble around him. This makes him more vulnerable to blast-heavy crews, but also makes it much easier to buff your entire crew at once. Of note is that Collodi's buffs do not require you to STAY in this bubble. Learning when to venture from the bubble is going to be an important skill for 2e Collodi players. Personal Puppet This is one of Collodi's (0) actions and marks a friendly Minion as the Personal Puppet until he uses the ability again. This grants the PP a (1) action any time Collodi suffers damage from an enemy model while within THE BUBBLE, so long as they take 1 damage themselves. It also grants Collodi the ability to kill (not sacrifice, so it will drop Corpse/Scrap) the Personal Puppet to negate all damage from whatever just hit him. This gives us 2 courses of action with PP. 1) We can throw it on something menacing, like an Illuminated, Young Neph or Ronin, and furiously punish things for hitting Collodi (or stalk the PP closer to priority targets and mark something else PP on out next turn. Nothing says dont hit my Master like a magical crack addict clawing your opponent's Master's face off.) 2) We throw it on something throw away, most notable the Marionette totem, and kill them when a Seamus Flintlock RJ dmg flip appears. The nice thing about the Marionettes is that when they die they may transfer positive conditions off to other minions. So you can face-tank a number of hit equal to your marionettes +1 before taking any damage. Assuming they are all in THE BUBBLE. Ideally you will get a chance to gauge your opponent and pick a tactic that most messes up their gameplan. I usually start off now by putting it on something big unless I guess my opponent is a "kill the master at all costs!!!" kind of player. Beater tends to deter pot shots, chaff tends to deter people from concentrated efforts. Collodi Hates Mind Bullets Ok, so Collodi has Df 5 and WP 6, why does he hate WP duels more? Well, first off you'll only usually only be taking one hit from a Df duel due to the auto-triggered Run Away Home; letting you push 3" in any direction, usually good enough to push out of melee or into cover/out of LoS against shooting attacks. Against WP? He's a sitting duck if the attack makes it past his WP6. So prioritize those nasty WP targets, or just avoid them if you can. But Hates His Opponents More Lets talk about what Collodi does to your Opponent's crew before we get into what he can do for his own. Collodi's lone offensive skill is Pull The Strings. It is highly accurate, extending 4" past THE BUBBLE and best of all, isnt actually a ranged attack, so does not scatter and does not care about cover. The attack itself has a... poor damage profile for a master: 2/3/4, but comes with a positive twist to damage, so you can cheat in those middle of the road cards if you want the 3 damage. But no, where this attack shines is in its triggers. SO first of all we have a build in Mask. That Mask gives the opponent slow. A crow lets us damage AND obey the opponent's non-Leader model, as many times a turn as we have AP and fancy crows to throw at them. The last trigger; Idle Hands, requires a second maske. On that model's activation, you control one of it's AP, and spend it. Now, that on its own is great, but you can shut down nearly any model in the game with 2AP and some good cards. Slapping a model once for slow and then a second time for Idle Hands means they are Paralyzed, without being able to Frozen Heart Immunity their way out of it. They lose 1 AP and you're spending the other. Even models with specific AP like Nekima can be forced to move out of position so they can't make use of their extra AP. Or just stab away with them, your pick. Nasty Ability. Collodi Loves His Children Collodi has two more actions on his -base- card, both of which are for helping his wonderful friends out. Collodi has a deep affinity, like many buffing masters, for Minion and -Keyword- models. His keyword characteristic is of course, Puppets. The first, My Will, allows him to transfer some AP out to his minions/puppets giving them a positive twist to any DUEL they make during the action. So this allows for more easily passed Horror/Manipulative duels, as well as just flatly being more likely to hit. Often you'll be better off attacking with your own strings, but this ability should not be overlooked. It doesnt work on Collodi so dont try. Second, he can summon back his totem, the marionette, or wicked dolls from scrap left lying around from killing all your decoy personal puppets or killing whatever mechanical beasties your opponent brought. This requires a 9 of Masks, making it one of the worst return-on-investment summoning powers in the game. But only by a TN difference of 1 so, its not the end of the world. This ability is one of the reasons you might pause on taking some of the NB minions I mentioned because they will all be dropping corpses, save the Coryphee. But you should have plenty of scrap from marionettes dying and effigies getting taken out. Fated VS Props Collodi's two Limited upgrades are going to change how you're playing with him. Both provide Creep, a handy little 3" push (0) action, good for getting out of engagements and moving up the board. What they differ on is key though: Do you want to Buff Your Crew or do you want to Buff Your Master? Fated was my go-to during the playtest. Effigy buffs are very powerful and will be covered in more detail in their own section. But suffice to say, being able to grant your Puppinions healing on causing damage, burning on every attack unless your opponent discards, etc and being able to do so -without activating Collodi- is very powerful indeed. When Collodi activates he can also grant a second buff to the crew by taking an action. This is usually defensive stance or more notably: Focus. If you have been reading game dev Justin's blog, you'll know how valuable AP is as a resource and I found myself on average granting it to 4-7 Puppinions, which is a heck of a lot of AP saved. Props is the contrast. It allows Collodi to sap off Defensive Stances and Focus conditions from friendlies as required. Now on the surface this seems much less useful, but having Out of Position models ending their turn on a Defensive Stance or Focus can free up a LOT of Collodi's AP, let him stand a higher chance of drawing suits he needs and just generally let him be more effective while chaff models secure you activations and are no less effective at being in your opponents way. If you find yourself thinking Marionettes are not useful, this may be the upgrade to try. Especially with Avatar Collodi's attacks (covered in the third post) You'll also get the option to summon Effigies! You dont get their buff across your whole Puppinion base, but if there's scrap around they can be more useful than a Wicked Doll and Collodi certainly does still get to benefit from the Effigy buffs! I Heard There Are Other Upgrades? Right you are title! My favourite/always taking of the remaining upgrades is Strum The Threads. This allows Puppinions Puppets-Only in THE BUBBLE to take 2 unavoidable damage to gain fast. Now Puppets tend to have low wounds high defences, so if you dont have a way of healing (which you do! See: Effigies) you can quickly wipe yourself off the board, but Illuminated could heal that back same turn. And now they are FAST magical crack addicts. It should be noted this is NOT an action, its just an ability so you cant spread Fast to your Puppinions with Fated. Stop doing so, take your 2 damage like a... man puppet? Like a muppet. Breathe Life exists! Its another option for a (0), letting you toss 2 wounds back on a model, but it can't be you, so probably pass? Pushing Puppinions 2" is actually more useful than it sounds. You can unlock a lot of models from combat or manage some extra distance. If you're hitting 8 models with it, it is 16" of free movement? I dunno, I still haven't got it to be as useful as I think it COULD be. Threads of Fate. Not to be confused with Fated, this makes Collodi immune to forced movement, which is pretty dang super. You also get a (1) to give yourself Armor. Now, aside from the obvious interaction with Fated and giving that armor to your Puppinions, did you consider making yourself Fast with Strum, giving yourself Armor +4 and then not caring so much about the Beatstick in your face? Especially since that 1 minimum damage still lets your PP get free AP. Im sure I can do more with the Collodadillo. Next we'll be discussing Collodi's best pals the doll friends, followed by some Avatar Collodi pondering!
  8. So I bought a Doppelganger for my Neverborn crew and its (0) Action ability called Mimic let's you use a 1 AP from another model as if it were printed on its own card. My question is about the trigger for that ability called "Perfect Blend" which states "After succeeding, immediately take the selected action" This confuses me because isnt that what your doing in the first place? What point does the trigger have if your planning on using the ability after Mimic succeeds? Does perfect blend make it a free action?
  9. A friend got me into Malifaux about a year ago. Painting is by far my favourite part of the hobby, and I feel like now I've got enough of a stockpile of models and am confident enough in my painting to start showing them off (Please excuse the crummy photos - I don't have anything better than a phone camera...) Here's a group shot of all of my (painted) Neverborn models so far! I'm trying to hold off buying too many new models in the run-up to 3E, so the current project is trying to get them all based. Serena Bowman's my most recent paint job! Shown top next to Dreamer, who was one of my very first painted Malifaux models, and below on her base (sculpted from Milliput). The finished paintjob on Dreamer's base for good measure. I used to think basing was a chore, but the more I do it the more I'm enjoying it I'll be taking more photos of my crews as I get them based, so stay tuned for updates!
  10. Im kinda new to Malifaux and painting in general. Just want to share some models. I paint for me and my colleague. I play for Titania, he plays for Lynch. I will post models, as i get some good quality photos. My Teddy Mr. Graves "Sin City" Lazarus
  11. Hello there! It's been a little while since my last Malifaux battle report, it's been awhile since I recorded a game too. That said, I finally completed a battle report for Malifaux that's been sitting on my to do list for quite a while. The game is a bit older, but I think it turned out interestingly enough to warrant the editing and effects. So check it out if you have about forty minutes to spare =) edit: Fixed the YouTube link.
  12. Since I enjoy watching other's progress, and to provide myself with a kick in the rear, I've decided to show my painting progress. I'm an excruciatingly slow painter because I just can't bring myself to paint below my full capacity and I don't paint regularly enough to become fast. Yet. Lately I've become a bit more regular in my painting and added a wet palette to my tools which have sped up my painting. Some. So without further ado, here's the currently finished models as well as what's currently on the painting table. Highest priority right now is the Hooded Rider and Mysterious Effigy to round out my starting campaign crew. (Also basing Mr. Graves and two Terror Tots, because painted but not based is just silly.) Currently finished. On the painting table. (I'm not only slow, I'm also unfocused/undisciplined.) The Tots have been finished since this picture was taken and the Effigy and Rider are further along. Some pictures of some of the finished models: (I'm considering to switch to a dark background, not sure which works best?)
  13. Want to buy The Neverborn Queen Titania Alternate Promo sculpt. Looking for NiB or built unpainted. Thanks!
  14. Hi there! I'm fairly new to Malifaux and on the 22 of july I will take part in my first tournament (fortunately is a friendly tournament with friends so nothing too competitive). Since schemes and strategies are already out , i was wondering if you could help me decide what do bring in the matches, maybe some tips on wich model works best in those sceniarios, and what schemes i should choose. I have Lilith, Jackob Lync, Zoraida, The Dreamer as masters and their crews. I have also a fair amout of other models to help them (like doppleganger, widow weaver, waltgeist, nekima, Tannen, Graves and so on...) Thanks in advance! These are the matches: First Match: Deployment: Flank Deployment (13) Strategy: Symbols of Authority (Masks) Schemes: * Punish the Weak (Masks) * Set Up (3) * Show of Force (7) * Take One For the Team (10) * Vendetta (12) Second Match: Deployment: Corner Deployment (10) Strategy: Public Executions (Tomes) Schemes: * Eliminate the Leadership (Tomes) * Covert Breakthrough (1) * Dig Their Graves (2) * Undercover Entourage (5) * Search the Ruins (8) Third Match: Deployment: Standard Deployment (6) Strategy: Supply Wagons (Jokers) Schemes: * Guarded Treasure (Jokers) * Hold Up Their Forces (4) * Inescapable Trap (6) * Take Prisoner (9) * Public Demonstration (13)

  16. Dear folks, new Malifaux player from Germany here. I have recently purchased my first crew and thought I'd share my minis with the public as I go along. Feedback and criticism are more than welcome, as I am new to miniature painting (this is my sixth miniature total). There you go... Cheers!

    The Dreamer’s Playroom

    Here’s the second crew I completed, and the one that made me fall in love with Malifaux in the first place. Though if I’m honest it’s not my favourite crew to play, it’ll always have a special place in my heart as they’re just so dang cool. That or The Dreamer has some sort of hold over me... I took the idea that he’s some sort of corporeal being as the inspiration, and instead of painting him in Caucasian flesh tones opted for more of a blue-grey colour scheme, using the other creatures to bring vibrant colour back to the crew.
  19. Ahoy! Very recently, my friends and I discovered Malifux and after pretty much falling in love with the aesthetics and mechanics of the game began collecting and playing. With a handful of games under our collective belts, many miniatures are getting painted, rivalries are beginning to develop and inter-faction plots are starting to form. With that in mind I thought it would be fun to detail our triumphs and failures, our victories and defeats and our painting progress for all and sundry to critique and enjoy as we explore the city. I hope that my fellow Newbies will follow me in this endeavour as we post battle reports, pictures of beautiful new miniatures and in-character banter on these forums. As our games progress I hope to cobble together some sort of narrative campaign structure which I will also post if there's a demand. The four of us are still very new at this so any and all help/tactics/advice would be greatly appreciated, and try not to laugh too hard as fate kicks us in the ass over and over again Without further ado I shall introduce the players so far: Swiglitz (me): Playing as Ressers with Dr. Douglas McMourning, Nicodem and Yan Lo. Vaiuri (lovely and talented): Playing as Guild with Lady Justice, Sonnia and Perdita (and maybe Lucas McCabe). Shadowfane (cunning and deadly): Playing as Neverborn with Lillith, Pandora and Jakob Lynch. Suvalas (patient and thoughtful) Playing as Outcasts with Misaki and the Viks. Please feel free to have a gander at our painting logs too over here: Vaiuri: http://wyrd-games.net/community/topic/101019-vaiuri-paints-malifaux/ Shadowfane: http://wyrd-games.net/community/topic/100761-shadowfanes-random-models/ Suvalas: http://wyrd-games.net/community/topic/101347-suvalas-small-scale-showcase/ Swiglitz: Coming soon (honest!) Guild (vaiuri) vs. Outcast (Suvalas) battle Report: http://wyrd-games.net/community/topic/101105-a-transcredible-battle-report-or-something/ With more to follow. I hope you enjoy our transcredible exploits, see you soon!

    Pandora for Fixed List Tourney

    Hi all, I'm planning to attend a fixed list 50ss tournament this weekend following the GG18 strats & schemes for March. The crew I'm thinking about running is below but there are a few things that I could use some advice on.. 1. I'm thinking Barbaros with Challenge will keep Pandora alive longer and he can run interference for her, but is it possibly overkill? I haven't tried this combo yet. 2. Should I consider bringing the Emissary/Johan for Condition removal? What would I swap for him? 50 SS Neverborn Crew - Melee 'Dora Pandora + 5 Pool - The Box Opens (2) - Fears Given Form (1) - Aether Connection (1) Barbaros (10) Cyclops (8) - A Thousand Faces (1) Lilitu (7) Baby Kade (6) - Depression (1) Iggy (5) - Malifaux Provides (1) Bloodwretch (5) <- I don't have insidious madness yet Is there anything else you'd call out that I should consider? Any feedback will be super appreciated. Thanks!

    Tooth/Rougaru Pounce timing

    Question on Rougaru/Tooth Pounce timing: If Tooth lures uses her Challenge of Summer - and pulls the model in to Pounce range for a nearby Rougarou - does the Rougarou's Pounce take place before either of the attacks generated by the Challenge of Summer? Or does the Pounce not go off until after the entire Challenge Action is complete? If Pounce doesn't trigger until after the Challenge text is completed - assuming Tooth survives the swing from the enemy model - and then Tooth hits on her attack (generating a Push) - does the Rougarou then get two (2) Pounce attacks on the enemy model (One (1) from the Push from the Challenge, One (1) from the push from Blossoming Blade attack)? Thanks!
