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 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!
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.
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 »
It’s been a while since I’ve posted my miniatures here. I’m a bit slow with the painting. However, I have finished up all 3 of my Rotten Belles for my Malifaux Resurrectionist crew. I’ve got the Red Chapel box set along with a few additional models (Bete Noir, Copycat Killer, and Miss Pack). I’m trying to get at least a 25-35ss crew completed so I can field a fully painted army for simple games, and so I can possibly participate in some tournaments. I’m in the process of painting up Sybelle now as well, so I’ll try and get some pics up of her soon. For now, here are some pics of the finished Rotten Belles. Read more »
You may have already noticed but there are a bunch of new Malifaux downloads up on the Malifaux Downloads page. Cenotaph and Ratty from the Wyrd Forums have created a bunch of new Strategy, Scheme, and Terrain reference card downloads with the Rising Powers stuff. A big thank you to those guys for taking the time to create these awesome reference cards and for allowing me to host them on Tabletop Geeks.
There is still a need for an updated reference sheet with the new Book 2 rules if anyone feels up to the challenge! And as always, feel free to contact us if you have any questions or comments.
Malifaux: Rising Powers (aka Malifaux Book 2) is now available. Rising Powers is an expansion to last year’s new tabletop game that’s been making waves since it released. Malifaux is a unique take on tabletop games that uses a card mechanic in place of dice. If you’ve never played Malifaux, I’d suggest reading the Malifaux Review first to learn about the base game. Also, don’t forget to check out the Tabletop Geeks Malifaux Galleries or sign up to upload your own!
Rising Powers expands on a few aspects of Malifaux. This new book adds a few new rules, a ton of new units, and of course more stories in the Malifaux world. While only a few new rules are added, they greatly improve on the basic gameplay. It should be noted that this is an expansion, and as such the original rules and model stats are NOT included in this book. This only includes new content.
You may have already noticed that we’ve been putting up some new stuff over in the Malifaux Downloads section. With the Book 2 release there are some new reference materials to go with that such as the new Strategy and Scheme cards. We’ve also added some new Scrap, Corpse, and Body Counters. One of my favorite new additions, though, is an index for the original rulebook (thanks to rajcze from the Wyrd forums for that)!
These are just a few of the new things that were added, and I expect that we’ll be adding more as people pick up the new book and have the need for more references. Speaking of which, if you haven’t already then don’t forget to pick up your copy of Malifaux: Rising Powers! Also, check out the new Tabletop Geeks User Sites Directory and more specifically the Malifaux Galleries section or get your own site and have your galleries listed in the directory!
