How To Cheat On Malifaux (And Get Away With It)

I suppose it can be argued that humans are, at the core, animals. We evolved from monkeys and still share a remarkable amount of DNA with our hairy cousins (the monkeys, not our literal hairy cousins). And as such, when the sun comes out and temperatures rise, and clothes get skimpier and more revealing  a young male's mind reverts to its primal state and may turn to... unchivalrous things. Yes, the thought of having a little fun on the side. Ooer.

One of these people isn't playing with an authorised fate deck....

A Noobish View On Second Edition...

It's been a while since I had my first game of Malifaux with the 2nd edition ruleset (actually, my first game of Malifaux ever!) and since then I have had time to ponder, muse, sift the forums and watch the weekly developments to the ruleset. It's remarkable how much has changed in the short time since the beta began, and even more remarkable how each change can pretty much be inked back to the forum feedback that inspired it.

WIP Me & Smother Me In UHU And Balsa Wood.... Ladies

As my provocative title suggests, enjoy some WIP photos, including some pretty-much completed ones...

First up, the Death Marshals:

WIPping All Over The Breach

Good afternoon all!

After a short break, I return with a few new WIP pics of my fledgling Lady Justice crew; specifically the lady herself and her left-hand man (because everyone knows that Lady Justice's right-hand man is the Scales!). Whilst I don't consider either of them 'fully' finished yet, I'd be happy to see them on the tabletop!

Lady Justice Crew - Bit more progress....

I have spent the last few hours on painting and I can honestly say that it doesn't look like it... I've decided that I focus best when painting one or two models at a time instead of tackling the entire crew in one go. And so it has been Lady Justice and my beloved Scales who have had some brush time today. Results below;

As you can see above and below, Scales is coming on well but there is still much to be done. I really want to get the basic colours and shadings down right before dirtying and bloodying him up appropriately.... Heheheheh....

M2E Game - Oiling the Cogs

Hello all and apologies for the delay in getting another post done, but I'm back with a bullet! A couple of days ago I had my first game with my Lady Justice crew; in fact, my first game of 2nd Edition rules... In fact my first game of Malifaux ever! So what I will be doing in this blog is both talking about that fateful Thursday night as best as I can remember it, and in the second part of this blog talk about my impressions of Malifaux, especially how I found the 2E rules as a new player.

Let's crack on...

Disclaimer: I may not remember the specifics of the match so apologies to all, especially to my opponent Liam (@MunkeyKungFu) if I mess up some of the details!

Lady Justice crew - Early WIP

I have finally got around to working on the Guild crew and have started to get some colour in their cheeks, as well as various other places!

Note; I've undercoated in grey as I find it a good colour for the mix of dark browns in the clothing and the brightness of Lady J's hair and top. Plus I think it allows a truer colouring of very thin paints, i.e, the very very thin colour on my palette will look close to exactly the same when on the model. I urge you all to try out different colour undercoats and see what effect they have on some test models. Or I'll throw a tutorial on here sometime soon!
