  1. Heya Breachers! I’m gearing up for some travel, so this week my topic is about a question I see often enough on this forum and the TTB Facebook group. Most recently @Harlekin asked a variation of this. Here’s his forum post: After you’re done with this week’s Fatemaster Friday, head over to the thread and give your two cents to a prospective new Fatemaster! When it comes to Through the Breach, it can be hard to decide where to start with a group of new players. Picking the right Penny Dreadful can be very difficult. You want something accessible to players who are new to th
  2. Hey guys! So there seems to be some buzz building up around the 3e release in my area and it seems like its finally gonna be plausible to get a weekly game in.Jumping on the bandwagon I've started looking into picking up several crews for myself as well as doing some demos around here. So started looking into the upcoming launch and honestly got a bit overwhelmed on how to go about it, noticed a few of the boxes have had their contents changed while some are getting re sculpted or even having their factions switched around. Adding to the confusion, I've seen a few retailers doin
  3. 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
  4. Hello everyone! This is my first attempt at writing a Tacitca for use. I'm writing it for a master which I played a lot (and influenced) during the Beta, so I know a few of his tricks. The main idea is to share these with new players attempting to start him or old players trying some new tricks out. I speak, of course, of Hamelin. To make things easier, first blocks will describe the master without any upgrades. Improvents on certain things will be noted under the respective upgrade section. Stats First thing to see are his stats, which are pretty decent, yet average, across the b
  5. Hi guys, So if you haven't guessed I am starting to arrange this as a monthly tournament at Wayland games Southend On Sea.

  10. Hello there New Players and Old Players alike! I've noticed this coming up in a lot of different threads on different forums and in game store discussions and thought it could use some additional discussion and reference: TERRAIN IS A BIG DEAL IN MALIFAUX The amount, placement and type of terrain will affect your game. And not in a small way either. Now most people will realize quite quickly that if they use a traditional Warmahordes board of 2 trees and a small hillock Masters like Perdita get muchmuch stronger as their shooting attacks dont have to worry about pesky LoS or Cover, so
  11. 8/28/16 Start Time 12:30pm Entry: Purchase of a Master Crew box Players will purchase a Master Box of Malifaux and have 5 hours to fully assemble their Master Box Crew. The players will be given two weeks to fully paint their crew and return on 9/11/16 to participate in a 35 SS tournament using the gaining grounds format. Players' crews are limited to the models included in the Master Crew boxed purchased on 8/28/16. This is a great chance for new players to try out the game and get to know their new crews. This will also provide an interesting challenge for those veter

  13. What's happenin', all? Seeking the expertise of veteran players. I'm introducing my weekly game night group players to Malifaux, and am seeking some advice on great, simple ways to explain "fiddly" rules. An example: 1. Ca 4(tomes); TN 14(tomes); Res. Df They're getting caught up every time on the suit name in an attack action, and its mechanics. "Do we have to FLIP the tomes to succeed, or is it GIVEN to us?! Bargle, bargle, bargle..." I'm not sure I'm doing a fantastic job at explaining. I play Gremlins almost exclusively, and am guilty of knowing how MY faction works, but not stu
  14. New player here, I'm planning on making Nicodem my first master and I was wondering if anyone had any pointers about what models I should pick up in addition to his Open Graves box? I really like Bete Noir but besides her I'm unsure where to go from here. I'm planning on running everything from his starter box if that helps. Also I wasn't sure if this is the most appropriate place for this thread or the New Player Lounge, so I erred on the side of my fellow Resurrectionists, sorry if that was incorrect. Thanks in advance
  15. Hello all you Wyrdos and Potential Wyrdos out there. Just to let you know if you are looking to pick up any Malifaux or Wyrd Related stuff in the Huntsville area there are two awesome places you can do that. Either at the Deep http://www.deepcomics.com/ or Mastermind Models and Miniatures http://www.m3paints.com The local community plays Malifaux every Sunday at the Deep from 4pm till close. (Of course setting up a game is always helpful.) And we play Saturday 12 - 6 at M3. We conduct demos during that time as well. We have knowledgable Henchmen with crews at both area
  16. Hello, Just in case you don't know me.... My name is Matt and I’m part of a fantastic Wargames Club called Tanelorn in East London, UK. Going for over 15 years, we are based in Leytonstone and are only a minute walk from the Underground station. We play all sorts admittedly but I am totally smitten with Malifaux so thought this was a splendid place to post lol Why I am posting here today? Historically we have always meet once a week on a Sunday (currently 2-6 with once a month a 12-6 session), but from 19th March 2015 we are going to be trialling an additional night of wargaming good
  17. Hey guys, I'm going to be starting up a web series teaching some folks to play Malifaux and I'm considering the Henchmen Hardcore format as a starting point. 20 SS, 4 models (no more no less) basic Cache, No summoning, Strategy is Turf War, Scheme is Assassinate. Seems dead simple for new players and should even out the learning curve some starters come with. I'll have all my Guild stuff as well as a pile of older Ress and Neverborn figs to make some demo forces out of. Thoughts?
  18. I've been hosting a lot of game nights and I've noticed something coming up a lot: New Players don't (1)Focus. It's understandable, its not a specific action on your model's card, its not cool like slapping someone in a Pine Box, but it is what's going to start winning you more games. (1) Focus, as mentioned, is a general action so any model in the game can take it. Some are built around it, being able to gain the benefits for less AP or through other means, but it can be very worthwhile to spend your precious AP on using it for its regular cost. Focus is going to net you a on your attack
  19. Hey guys, Bit late notice, but we're having a tournament this Sunday May 18, at the 13th Dimension, 451 Swift St Albury. I apologise for leaving the notification so late, but I wanted to be sure we had a good representation from our local group before I committed to anything much. INTRO level tournament, many players only have a couple games under their belt. 40SS, Fixed Master, Three Rounds Gaining Grounds. Store opens Sunday morning at 10am, cards start flipping at 10.30, otherwise we'll never get through three rounds. Very limited numbers (if we try I reckon we could
  20. I'm Dirial, and welcome to Malifaux! If you are reading this, chances are you are a beginning Malifaux player. You have probably picked up a Crew Box because you liked the look of. Someone in your play group did the same thing. You started your first match and you were utterly destroyed by turn 2. And now you worry about the game's balance and/or if you picked a sub-par crew. Alternatively, you are an experienced player with a few matches under your belt. And now this greenhorn marches in, with his new unpainted crew no one in your group plays. And that greenhorn blasted you from the table
