Hey all, well I'm new both to Malifaux and to this forum but from what I can tell this would make a great "summer fling" game. Something without the huge price point to get into as a new game. That said I've been doing my research, have a basic understanding of how the game plays and something about a number of the gangs. I'll be picking up my rulebook this week and am looking to determine what my gang will be. Right now I am leaning heavily towards Pandora as I love the creepy kids (though am not huge on the woes, etc). I'm thinking I'll pick up the basic set, a doppleganger, teddy and when I can an Insidius Madness and I should be set for 35 point games (even some flexibility as I think thats over). From what I have heard the playstyle is very tricksy which seems to me to be what Malifaux is about! However I am also rather keen on the look of Seamus and the Redchappel Gang. I'm not sure what thier playstyle would be like though and am not really looking to just rush and assault. I do however really like the girls though I'm not certain what expansion options would stay within that theme. Finally again with the whole burlesque women theme Collette looks pretty interesting. However mechanical doves do little for me and from what I've heard she is all about the pair of dancing scissor handed dolls. I actually like both the girls and the mannequines but am not sure about the playstyle and reliance on one model. Anyway, as an albeit educated but none the less uniformed newbie please set me straight on all my misconceptions and I'd appreciate any feedback on if Pandora is the best choice and if not, why not. Please opinionate away Edit: Oh and as an aside... one of the very new gangs is the kids and the ratcatcher. Something about spreading disease. This appeals, but how does it play? A handful of lost kids... plus what would you possibly expand to 35 points with without breaking away from the theme?
