don't stop believing

just a quick reminder that the game is still alive 😄 gave one of my friends an army the other day and miraculously it sparked the interest of some of the other people at the party. might have accidentally created a tiny community. i mentioned the community isn't very lively but they didn't really care about that as we're mostly gonna play with friends anyway. it'doesn't have to be very big, as long as it's fun.

it's a good game, we had a bumpy start but with some support we might still get this thing of the ground.

as long as wyrd keeps making stuff for the other side i'll keep trying to recruit friends to play with me 😅

just a happy little message in these hard times, hang in there 🙂

I just came back from my FLGS and the owner was actually taking his personal Cult of the Burning Man models out of the display case he has for some of his personal stuff behind the counter and throwing them out in the trash to make room because "the games dead mate, haven't shifted any product in about 6 months and nobody plays it or asks about it" and the shelf that used to be used for it is now a second cabinet for M3E stock. I like the game a lot and its nice to see a larger scale thing in the Malifaux universe but unless they can turn it around "it doesn't have to be big as long as its fun" isn't going to go very far if its a money pit.

This supposedly dead game is doing just fine in our locality. We've got 4 players with a 5th possibly joining and we've got a lot of games in.

I've really enjoyed working with the models as well. They look great and are a blast to paint.

The game is truly excellent and deserves to do well. It is disappointing that we're having to wait so long for the two player starter, but with a game this mechanically sound all it takes is good word of mouth and some support and it really has the potential to take off.

Let's work to make the online presence the game has more positive. If people google this game and just see relentless negativity about it, then it's only going to have a deleterious effect on the game's future.

I still believe.

I'm in a similar position to @Sharpedge. We've got about 4 active players, with maybe another 4 with armies but  no time to play. 

The game is excellent and I've been LOVING painting my armies. I've got most of my Cult finished, a proxy Guild company (using KE rules) and I'm now painting up a Gibbering Hordes force. 

And just because, here's some random pics of my armies. ;)

I wish Wyrd gave better feedback about current state and future of the game. I'm waiting for Three Kingdoms to roll in, but I'm afraid that with current approach there will be no people left to play with by the time it is released.

Just coming in with my love for this game. A friend and I slugged it out today on Vassal. Adeodatos and Fenton vs. Charles Edmonton and Margaret Belle. 

We only have four of us that play TOS, but we have a sizable Malifaux crew. We're trying to use vassal and the current isolation as a "try before you buy" demonstration. 

I'd love to see this game continue to grow!

ALL GLORY TO THE BURNING MAN!

 

... ahem.

Just got a Gibbering Hordes army and a demo from our local expert. I think a "Wyrd" full scale game definitely has a place and that "Malifaux night/day" could easily become "Wyrd" day. However, given the super popularity of M3E it will remain dominant.

The Other Side is a fantastic game and it is such a shame that it has a minimal population. So many things plagued its release.

I have the Cult and Abysinnia kick starters to get to eventually, hopefully sooner rather than later, that said a good amount of the models need some tlc as they are a little warped etc.

I've got an almost fully painted Cult army which I was using a fair bit until M3e came out. Love TOS. I still believe! :)

I want to believe.

I am hoping that "with one thing and the other"* is just delaying the two player starter set, and once things like cons and shows become possible that will allow a fully supported release and lots of promotion.

 

* Kermode and Mayo code for where we find ourselves, similar to "puppies and kittens" in Z-Nation.
