Waldo's Weekly - The Path to Glory

Recommended Posts

Wyrd_NewsImage_WaldosWeekly.jpg

Hey Wyrdos,

This week, when we asked Waldo what he’d like to reveal for Malifaux Third Edition, he rolled over and groaned, complaining that he’s had his fill of M3E. From the half-eaten Basse Core Boxes and sprues with imp slobber surrounding him, we wholeheartedly agree. Here’s to hoping he likes the taste of Tactics Tokens, because we’re diving back into The Other Side!

So, this Wednesday, we’ve got not one, not two, but three reveals, starting with The Other Side’s upcoming Rules Manual.

Included in the conveniently sized Rules Manual is everything you’ll need to know how to play the game without being bogged down with stories or unit cards. This handy-dandy softcover handbook will make sure that you’ll get any and all rules clarifications that might be had during the heat of battle at your local game store without having to lug around the giant (but infinitely awesome) hardcover Core Rulebook.

For those who backed The Other Side on Kickstarter, the next two reveals might feel a little familiar, but to those who have just recently started fighting for glory this side of the Breach, these new faces will be welcome surprises.

Trained by none other than Kirai Ankoku while he was still alive, Binh Nguyen is the spirit responsible for amassing the Court of Two’s ghost army by binding their souls before they permanently departed from this world. In life, he put his talents to use for his own personal gain, but his perspective has changed since his life was taken away from him.

On the table, Binh Nguyen is a powerful champion for the Court of Two or any Malifaux-aligned Allegiance. Not only is he incredibly difficult to kill, he is also one of the few non-Commander units to have a Tactics value, making him well worth his scrip.

Next up is Samantha Thrace, Captain of a special Guild unit who were tasked with analyzing the stranger things on Earth that might cause a headache (or decapitation, depending) for her allies on the battlefield. While what she found in her travels can only be discovered in the Trial by Fire story in the Core Rulebook, her unquestionable skill in uprooting problems just before they happen has value for anyone defending their homeland.

In battle, like Binh, Thrace provides a Tactics Token to any Earth-aligned Allegiance willing to bring her on board. The combination of her being able to hand out Reinforcement Tokens while slicing through a fireteam with her Modified Axe makes her a formidable foe to be reckoned with, and that’s before she even flips to glory.

You won’t have to wait long to get your hands on the bite-sized rulebook or these Champions, as they are marked to launch for a fall retail release!

*opens mouth to make unflattering remark about complexity of Binh sprue at the lantern-and-spirits sub-assembly*

*...remembers that tOS is a preassembled game*

*edit* *edit* *leaving just enough reminders to self to not do that again*

I like Ms. Thrace, although I will exercise Edna Mode judgment and cut off the trailing tail-coat. It doesn’t suit her persona, even if it is easier to paint under.
