  1. Hi The Death Marshalls (and their pine boxes) were the minis that got me into Malifaux and now Lady J can get her own pine box, I want to do a conversion. I've got a 1e Lady J so I could go down the route of getting a 2e box and just converting that with one of the pine boxes from a death marshall in there but that would duplicate a lot of minis I don't want / need and an expensive way to go about it too. Has anyone got suggestions for good Lady J proxies? A bit of green stuff can provide a blindfold, so that doesn't matter. I'm specifically looking for dynamic poses in 32mm, s
  2. After having no luck finding a Trixiebelle proxy I liked to use in my Brewmaster crew, I decided to try my hand at creating my own! This was my first time experimenting with kitbashing/green stuff and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! All of the parts I used came from the female multi kit from Through The Breach (I guess its not really a kitbash if it all came from the same kit? Technically I made a conversion of a Through The Breach model and I'm using it as a proxy in Malifaux? Whatever, it's semantics. ) I had to do quite a bit of trimming to get the model hei
  3. I have felt, since the official release of wave 2 cards, that many players and their choice of master/faction are currently hampered by what is in essence a ‘buying limbo’. This point has been expanded, and discussed in far more detail here: http://wyrd-games.net/community/topic/106416-im-trying-to-be-patient-i-really-am/ There is the issue of models which are new (Vasillisa for Neverborn to name just one), and then there are those models who’s aesthetic has completely changed (All of the Effigys). If you were fortunate enough to have picked up the metal versions of the wave 2 models before
  4. Hello! I am a new player to Malifaux and I wanted to double check our terrain usage. My roommate and I recently decided to buy and try the Lady Justice and Seamus battle boxes and some basic research led me to notice Malifaux uses quite a lot more terrain than we're used to. We're mostly experienced with Warmachine and Guildball where terrain is mostly a suggestion. So I cut out some cardboard squares and color coded it into a few different terrain types and placed it around the board and to my eye it looks... Cluttered. I wanted to double check with the community to see whether or not
  5. In a recent tournament there was a bit of upset feelings on a ruling where a player wanted to proxy in a model that hadn’t been released on the market. He inquired to the organizer ahead of time that he wanted to use an ‘alt ‘ of a different model and the request was politely denied because the organizer thought it might confuse opponents and compromise tournament integrity. Thankfully, there weren’t any hurt feelings and the player placed top 3 in the tournament but I wanted to share my thoughts and see what the community thinks in case I am ever faced with the same hard decision.

  6. Afternoon, It's been a while since I painted any new models for Malifaux but I've just bought a few new models for my Leveticus crew and have been looking what I might buy after I finish these ones... At some point soon I do want to add a couple more models to my Zoraida crew. Top of the list is a Nurse but the Wyrd ones don't really fit the 'rustic bayou' look of a Zoraida crew, so does anyone have any suggestions for an alternative nurse model? How do people feel about this model as a bayou Beckoner? (Do Beckoners even work well with Zoraida?) http://www.f
  7. So I've been starting to think that my von Schill crew is really missing the steam trunk....problem is, it doesn't appear to be on sale anywhere (I have the metal crew). I'm sure I'm not the only person with this problem....so does anybody have any ideas for a tournament-legal steam trunk proxy?
  8. Hey there. I'm looking for proxies to models that I don't see available any time soon. I thought others could also use the inspiration and perhaps some great ideas are already out there, ready to be shared! What I'm looking for (and feel free to add other wishes to this thread). Thought I'd include som basic tracking info for these guys: Anna Lovelace (Shifiting Loyalties page 109. 40 mm base, Ht 2) Arcane Emissary (Shifiting Loyalties page 128. 50 mm base, Ht 3) Scion of the Void (Shifiting Loyalties page 179. 30 mm base, Ht 2) BTW I assume these Emissaries
  9. Sooo despite owning lazarus... any ideas what would make a good proxy as the model looks absolutely awful and i kinda get why he hates thy maker. Would be awesome if he was resculpted to look like the construct from the cover of ttb fatemaster almanac... or was a more streamlined version of ryle...
  10. I'm looking for the right figures to use as proxies for an Obsidian Oni or two, but I still haven't found anything that's just right. These Dark Age figures are about the best fit I've found so far; they look sort of rocky/crystalline, and have clubs, so that's reasonably close. The CP Stone Trolls at the top of this page would also work reasonably well, as would the Bakemono that's third on this page. Anyone got any good suggestions?
  11. So I'm trying to expend my first faction collection beyond my first crew boxes and have opted for Neverborn as I really like most of the minis and story. The primordial magic mini is a sticking point for me though, I just think it looks awful and doesn't portray the description given for it in the book. I know I'll have to suck it up and field the vom-snake in a tournament, but as I'm only likely to be playing with my local gaming club so I don't foresee any issues with using a proxy. So on that note, does anyone have any good suggestions for proxies? What do you use?
  12. I just ordered four miniatures which I'll be using as Bunraku proxies. I'm only going to be basing/painting two of them. If anybody would like the remaining two, let me know. I'm thinking $5 plus shipping but am open to suggestions or best offers. Thanks!
  13. So.... a bored eBay afternoon and suddenly I have a proxy for the Arcane Emissary. Metallic skin? . Bull-like? . Blue Electrical stuff going on maybe ? . Possibly a tad large, but it will fit on a 50mm base More photos here http://www.madaxeman.com/main/Malifaux_Ramos_and_Hoffman_Crews.php#arcane
  14. Needed a Scion of the Void for the full Tara experience. He had to hit all the major elements of the artwork and theme from the new book; alien squid-y face, four arms, robes, big important book. So, after a little searching around, take 1 old metal Collodi, chop off his head (you've always wanted to, anyway, right?). Mix in the outer extremities of a Bones mini, then homebrew a book out of extra PlastCraft sprue. Paint to go with other-worldly Nothing Beast theme and there you have it. He'll do for now. If I had more time, I'd do something to his robes, but that'll have to be another day.

  16. Okay, so: The Dark Carnival is coming out for GenCon, as a proxy crew for Colette's standard loadout (Colette, 3 Mechanical Doves, Cassandra, 2 Performers, and 2 Mannequins). We are getting a number of named models, themed after a circus troupe described in detail in the latest Wyrd Chronicles (images for the crew box are also in that issue). The Dark Carnival proxies as Colette, as mentioned above. I am not satisfied with that alone. What I have been tossing about as an idea both on this forum and on AWP is the idea of being amateur (or better!) devs and betatesters, all of us, and cr
  17. Hello all, My friendly not so local game store has a very small selection of Malifaux miniatures that have recently caught my eye. I've been doing a bunch of research the past couple weeks and it seems like something I can sink my teeth into and I'd really like to try it out to be certain. The problem lies in the fact that there are no henchmen around and really no players either. Money is tight at the moment with wedding prep and a host of other things so I can't do any major purchases at the moment for crew boxes etc... On top of that I've never been into the miniature wargame/skirmi
  18. Hello, Since I am currently unsuccessful in my attempts at getting a copy of the Nightmare Tara crew, I am wondering whether people have considered models from alternate ranges to represent the models in Taras crew as I would really like to attempt a crew of hers.
  19. not sure if this belongs here or in the Miniatures Matters section... I have a painting / escalation M2E league coming up in the immediate future and I am planning on taking Pandora et al. I have all the models already. I actually proxy apparitions (http://wyrd-games.net/shop/Apparitions.html) for sorrows as I never really liked the intended models. My biggest problem now, is that I have the old poltergeist and need the new (50mm super-sized) one. Don't really want to re-buy the crew box, and I'm pretty sure they are not going to sell the new poltergeist separate. I know I could get cr
  20. Previous thread that started this all: http://wyrd-games.net/forum/showthread.php?p=345134#post345134 As stated over on the other thread, here's where I'll be posting my mock-ups (and eventually finished products) of using Puppet Wars Teddies to proxy the regular Teddies (using regular stat cards and the appropriate 50mm bases). Here's the first quick, crude mock-up using Nightmare Edition Teddy's shadow (illuminated by a Breadcrab Ghetto Jug Porn Studio™): I do plan on buying and / or making a decent wall for my bases, but until I get a few mock-ups done to see the size I'll
  21. Now I know for almost certain that Rafkin is a long ways off, But I really want something to stand in his pace until he is released.... Does anyone have a suggestion that is better than Doc Killingsworth?? [ame]http://www.amazon.com/PRIVATEER-PRESS-LLC-Killingsworth-Warmachine/dp/B000OTD1N0[/ame] Just sayin >.>............ Guy at my LGS pointed him out to me as I was pondering.... and he does have a bottle (formaldehyde baby!)
  22. As we know from the release schedule there is no Pale Rider in sight for the next 3 months or more. Does anyone have ideas for a proxy/conversion base to use in the meantime? I had thought of a wild west type model with a rifle, but I haven't been able to find any that have even halfway decent details and appearance. If anyone has done this already, or has thoughts it would be great to hear.
  23. Zoraida obeyed a guild guardsman to charge the Governor's Proxy. Guardsman kills the Proxy with his attack, when you kill the Proxy you have to do a WP to WP duel with him and if you fail, you die! My question is this. Who does the WP to WP duel? If I obeyed the Guardsman, do I do it? if that's the case I would cheat down to kill the Guardsman off, basically fail the duel on purpose, but the obey spell says "The Action selected may not cause the model to be kiled or sacrificed as part of the action." I guess this can be a two-part question. What are the time limits of the obey sp
  24. I was putting together my marcus army and wanted to proxy up Rouge necromancy. Since I had purchased the box set and had no intention of using the Sabertooth Cerberus I decided to turn it into my proxy. I decided for one I didn't want it to be a tiger, I was bored of seeing the tigers, so I settled on Leopard, then since it was necromancy UNDEAD leopard. I love the way he came out :]
  25. Hey everyone - Just a first post from a relatively new player from Edmonton. I got two teams painted up and one more in the works. As I was browsing some miniatures, I think I found a nice proxy for Perdita at Studio McVey. The model is just absolutely gorgeous, but it is on a 50mm base and has the mount, which is obviously not reflected in the original Perdita stats. Despite these things, I think she would fit in with the crew and would look gorgeous! What do y'all think? Sebastian
