Monday Preview - GenCon Nightmare Crew

Recommended Posts

This thing sucks. Glad I’m not a gremlin player. Not really digging the nightmare editions from last year either. Was hoping for something nightmarish and this ain’t it. But if it’s your thing more power to you.

So Broney (Ulix), Mr Ed (Old Major)....and 4 Horse-lets (Piglets)? Penelope in there somewhere? Maybe the horse with the hat? Or maybe it's Penelope and the 3 Wild Ponies (Wild Boars)?

Edit: And if this is just a straight port of the original Ulix crew box, can we expect Nightmare piglets and a Nightmare War Pig 'a la' last year's Nightmare Hamelin?

...again, well-punned. Nightmares. Augh.

I foresee some rabbit-ear headband conversions already.

Hopefully far, far away from me. I hate ponies and dollies and doilies and pink!

For those of us that only recently got into Malifaux (will soon begin painting first crews), how do we get our hands on these Nightmare Edition crews? Are they available outside of going to GenCon?

Wyrd does an online sale through their webstore DURING the month of GenCon. You can also buy at GenCon. Sometimes Nightmare crews pop up during Black Friday sales as well.

I'm kind of in shock. I've been lovingly harrassing Wyrd for murder unicorns since Titania was revealed but I had NO IDEA how far they'd run with the idea. I love it.

Thanks for the info! I'll keep an eye out so that my SO can rejoice at the hilarity of this. Ulix had been next on her list of "to get" and now she gets to go from ridiculous to absurdity. She's quite excited about this Nightmare Edition XD

To the folks complaining about the MLP reference: last I checked, you don't have to paint them the way they are shown, right? Want them spookier, pale horses with black or fiery manes. Want something gross? Rotted green ponies with grey, dirty manes... Spectral ponies? Bone white with a nice blue or green wash. 

No one is holding a weapon to you making you paint them cutesy. 

Let those of us who want to do so in peace, please.

Not my style but I understand and see it as well executed. If they were pigs dressed as ponys or they were rabbits, I would have fallen.

Dumb. Was hoping for some neato Gremlins given that it's a Gremlin faction box, but it's just a bunch of horses and one Gremlin in a horse suit.

No, thank you.

*takes a closer look-see at the renders*

Am I deluded or do these stand a chance of not being nightmare level assembly difficulty?

Total noob clarification request: So these should be on sale during the month of August? Also, are these alternate models for an existing crew, or is this something new?
 

Apologies for my failure to read things completely.

It is an alternate take on the Gremlin Master Box of Ulix.  It will be on sale during GenCOn which is Aug 2, 2018 – Aug 5, 2018 there or online.  Only will be available during special events
