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 »
This might not exactly be tabletop gaming news, but it’s related. The Blood Bowl Legendary Edition PC game is on sale today for 50% off ($20) on Steam today only. If you miss out on it today it’s still on sale through the new year, but not quite as discounted. 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 »
It’s been a while since we’ve done any interviews. However, I happened across an amazing conversion recently and just had to interview it’s creator. Some of you may have already seen the Orktimus Prime, a conversion of the Ork Trukk model into a working Ork Optimus Prime Transformers model. This is the brilliant work of madscuzzy (aka Dom). If you haven’t seen it yet, well, it’s something you just have to see. I can’t really describe how great it is.
This is one of my favorite conversions that I’ve seen. It’s a great idea and madscuzzy did an amazing job with it! It turns out that he’s also done some other very fine work as well! I was very impressed with all of his conversions, and the great trench table that he built. Check out the interview below to learn all about Orktimus Prime and the man behind the machine.
After moving I’ve not had the space to play tabletop games too often lately. The table that we built previously is located over an hour away from me now so I don’t get to use it. We managed to find the space to fit a folding table recently so I decided to set to work building another table. This one is a lot smaller than the other table and is of a slightly improved design. You can also keep up to date with this over in the full table gallery.
I finally finished up my next model, Madam Sybelle. If you have not played Malifaux, she would be the head of the Resurrectionist’s Rotten Belles essentially. While not my best model, she came out well enough I think.
After some time of staring longingly at the Hordes/Warmachine models I finally got a copy of the Hordes Primal Mk II Rulebook by Privateer Press. I do not have any models yet and I haven’t played a game, but I did finish reading the rulebook so I wanted to write up my thoughts. I will probably come back and write an actual review of the full game itself, but for now these are my thoughts on this book and what I know about Hordes now. Keep in mind that this is my first experience with the Iron Kingdoms so I will not be comparing this to the previous version of Hordes but rather looking at this with a set of completely fresh eyes and an open mind.
