He’s got a wheelbarrow full of dynamite and he’s not scared to use it! Darrel & Andy take a look at Willie the Demolitionist, a new model for The Arcanists in Malifaux.
I’ve never played Malifaux. If I did I think I might want to include this mad character, he looks fun.
Too sad they did not put him together.
Yeah, wanted to know more about his rules and such. But glad too see some Malifaux-stuff on BoW.
Wow with the new plastic line up they got me wanting the thunder war band. The plastic looks real clean and professional. Not like other makers that have plastic kits that have very soft edges that loose detail.
For those who are on the fence concerning this game…
I absolutely love it have two armies in neverborn it a great time unpredictable and the card mechanic is a refreshing twist away from dice. Can’t say enough good things about the game. I will be playing this one for a long time to come.
I’ve tried to “get into this game” for over a year and a half now, as have other members of my group. I’m now a set of terraclips and three crews in (Von Schill, Somer teef, and C. Hoffman) into it, and a half dozen others in my group equally invested, and… nothing: can’t find the drive to want to play this unwieldy system. I (and my group) wanted to get swept up into Malifaux, with the new GOOD minis hitting the shelves, and the quirky steampunk-gone-wildwest-gone-far east milieux, but after three aborted goes at leagues and time invested… it just keeps stalling out.
That said, I still buy the miniatures because they are GORGEOUS! Seriously, the new plastics acquired from Gen Con are right up there with any others on the market today. As well the progression in the storyline from book to book is refreshing, and reminds me of Infinity in the handling of advancement. And, as I said, now that the minis have finally caught up with the art design and book publication, and the range is becoming fleshed out monthly (again, very much like Infinity), Malifaux is in that sweet spot, that perfect storm of a gaming company.
I just wish there was some form of conversion to a D10 system or something… oh, well.
PS Why aren’t you guys building these plastics??
@ironmonger It’s a real shame you can’t get into the game. I find it so enjoyable and deep when I play it. It’s a shame you can’t share that I own Willie but haven’t got round to using him yet. But boy howdy! His rules really are quite adventurous. Dropping TNT everywhere while smoking a cigar?!? Gotta love them crazy railway workers xD
