There was an error with a server migration by our host yesterday that caused some issues with the site. This issue caused the site to appear as if it had rolled back an entire year. This meant that any new content posted on the main page was missing, the downloads pages were old versions, many user galleries were missing, and the site may not have recognized your login info. Unfortunately, this also means that if you logged in yesterday within that period and saved a roster or uploaded photos to your gallery they were not saved to the current version of the site.

Sigur of Battle Brush Studios, that crazy squirrel that brought you several painting guides on Tabletop Geeks earlier this year, is at it again! This time he’s put together a step-by-step painting guide for a Space Wolves Wolf Guard Battle Leader. This new painting guide turned out pretty awesome, just as with the previous guides. The guide comes complete with plenty of pictures of each step along the way, along with a description of how everything was done. I highly recommend checking out Sigur’s galleries as well as keeping an eye on his Tabletop Geeks page for any updates.
I probably should have posted this sooner but there have been several Malifaux updates recently. First of all, for those who might not have heard the Malifaux Rules Manual and Malifaux Gaining Ground (Tournament) files have been posted up. These are available on Wyrd’s website and are also linked in our Malifaux Downloads page. These are both available as completely free pdf documents. The Rules Manual includes updated rules with better examples that should help clarify things a bit more. The Gaining Ground document offers up full rules and information on running a Malifaux tournament.
I have not had the chance to do a lot of tabletop gaming recently, but I did recently started a Dungeons and Dragons campaign with a group of friends. We’re only about level 5 now so we’re really just getting started. One of the guys in the group has decided to do a write-up every week about the campaign so I thought I would share those here.
I have made yet more updates to the Malifaux Downloads page again. While over on the Wyrd Forums I happened across a bunch of really cool Malifaux Desktop Wallpapers. These aren’t really aides for the game or anything but I decided to put them up on the downloads page because they were buried away in the forums.
In keeping up with their tradition of great customer support and dedication to keeping their game from being too expensive Wyrd Miniatures has released the v2 stat cards for Malifaux in PDF form. The v2 stat cards have all of the latest errata and rules on them. This is a quick way to print out the latest cards if you’ve got the original versions of the stat cards. This is also great if you simply want to have print outs of your opponent’s cards so you can keep up with what their characters can do without needing to flip through the rulebook. The stat cards are available over on the Malifaux Downloads page right now!
If you’ve been to the Tabletop Geeks member galleries then you have probably seen some of Sigur’s work. He has definitely done some very great miniatures. However, he’s done more than just paint some miniatures, he’s been putting up painting guides to go along with some of them as well! These guides are excellent and a great way to pick up some new painting techniques for yourself. I highly recommend checking out both Sigur’s site and the painting guide
This latest painting guide shows off techniques used by Sigur to paint up Ultramarines Captain Sicarius. The guide takes you from start to finish with plenty of pictures along the way! While this guide is showing off one specific miniature a lot of the techniques used, especially the shading, can be applied just about anywhere. It ends with a beautifully painted miniature. Don’t take my word for here, check out these pictures of the finished model. Read more »
It’s been a while since this has happened, unfortunately, but the Roster Builder has received a small update. Thanks to a reader/fan of Tabletop Geeks we now have the Dark Elves up on the Roster Builder (listed with the Unofficial warbands). I’m still looking to get the Roster Builder updated even more, specifically with campaign support but it’s going to take some time. Keep checking back and I’ll keep you guys updated. Read more »
I don’t normally post about this kind of stuff, but I felt like this warranted sharing with everyone. Maybe it’s just because I’m crazy about laminating everything though. I laminate rosters, Malifaux character cards, reference sheets… anything that I can. I like to make sure my stuff is preserved. It’s also nice to use dry erase markers for tracking things on laminated cards or rosters. Read more »
The Malifaux Downloads page has been getting a lot of love lately. There are not only new downloads up but the layout has been redesigned as well! Ratty and Cenotaph of the official Wyrd forums have been a huge help in making the downloads page awesome. Read more »
