New alt models look awesome, give us more! Since my daughter absolutely loves cats and I just started collecting Hamelin's crew it looks like I will be buying that too.

Overexcited with seams upgrade, somewhat dissapointed with alt sybelle. Putting together alt Mcmourning, alt rafkin and alt sybelle they look like they are all the time the same model.

Alt Sybelle will be nice. Seamus creeps me out more than anything else, so it'll be nice to have Sybelle trucking around with Molly without having to get the box. Surprised to see alt Taelor, but it's a good sculpt.

Really intrigued by Yan Lo's presence in the Nico vs LJ story more than their coming to blows again. Wonder what he's getting out of this, and hopeful we'll learn more in the epilogue story.

That traces back to their art all being made for Through the Breach--there's not the variety of poses for TtB as there is for Malifaux.

That being said, since I know alt-Sybelle's TtB character for being a belle in the Malifaux sense, a charmer (even before she died), I think it fits. Though I will join actual Seamus players in surprise she isn't another type of belle or alt of Seamus himself.

VERY surprised by alt-Taelor as the Miss. Lost at least three bets on that one. :unsure:

This was a bumper issue!  Loved it!

For me, fiction is what I crave, so having three stories was gold!  each having a different format was kinda cool too. The competition winner, was well done & would Tan Teo would make a cool 10T enforcer if you ever decide to go that route.  The Northern Junction was a cool intro to Neil Henry, a playtest model.  And the best was last, Nemesis carrying on the main timeline & an awesome surprise at the end.  Not sure if I'll be able to participate (shipping's expensive & still undecided on if I want the Nightmare box or not, or if I want to chance it for Black Friday to do a big order then).

It was also cool to see a few sneak art previews, I'm guessing there's Neil, Medical Automaton & Jury.

I'd really love to see the Alt Ototo come to life at some point.  And this would make such a great Alt Hannah, so much better than the current model.

The Terrain piece & Design piece were great too!

Appreciate the feedback! We don't often hear feedback on Chronicles, but the feedback means a lot to us.

No worries!

Also, I really want Miss Deed!

Also, Also!  Go Go Lady J in The Dual of Fate!  (I normally hate Guild, but am a big Lady J fan, she's actually one of the few seemingly genuine good guys in Malifaux, her & Perdita!)

Any chance that someone can post a summary of information? For those of us who don't have access to DriveThru. :)

GenCon exclusive is a Miss, alt-Taelor in a Wild West pin-up style, no details on how much you have to order at the GenCon online sale to get her.

August FLGS promo is alt-Sybelle, the art for Emmeline Bellerose for Through the Breach, a lady in Edwardian style with high hair and hat perched atop it, and umbrella. Save the receipts from $60 USD worth of models bought from a store with a real retail location (online only shops don't count) and send a picture of the receipts in with the form on Wyrd's website before 7 September.

Art spoilers for the medical automaton, Neil Henry, the Jury, and a cute construct that is looking at a rock but I could have sworn the prospector was a living model....

On a pure character level I probably like Lady J more than Nico, but on a story level I think it would be more interesting to see Lady J lose, hmmmmm

 

It occurs to me with the Miss model announced we are back to having no idea where Alt Lazarus and Alt Nekima are coming from :(

No kidding. I thought for sure we were going to get a Miss Assembled and some comic misunderstandings from the pure construct crew which built the new chassis. <_<

++BUT THE FUNCTIONALITY IS IDENTICAL. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND.++

++THAT IS NOT THE POINT...OH, NEVER MIND, IT'S ACCEPTABLE.++

On the other hand, since the nightmare box is a very non-traditional nightmare, it's probably a good idea that the Miss is a very traditional pin-up. Sort of the reverse of last year's macho nightmare and unique Miss. :)

I was hoping for another building on a budget article, but this is two issues in a row without it. So I guess the goal of doing each faction within the year was scrapped? I had really wanted to see the Outcasts breakdown.

Crazy Cat Lady Hamelin is not helping to convince me to only buy one faction :P Alt-Taelor is pretty cool, and I've been thinking of picking her up for a while so that works out well for me.  I haven't had time to read all the stories yet, but the story about the ink was a very cool read, I can see why it was the winner!

Kinda feel we got let down on the Miss again this year. For me, Miss Deeds is right on par with Miss Ery. Also feel it ruins the whole tradition of the Miss line all together.

Question/Spoilers to the nemesis story 

 

When did Nicodem wipe out half the cities ressers?

His Vignette in Ripples of Fate.

Lady Justice isn't quoting exact numbers there, mind you, but Nicodem did take down a whole lot of lesser Resurrectionists in order to subsume their undead into his own horde.
