The Versatile keyword seems to be allocated to less traditional "merc" models and moreso faction-generic models like the Emissaries and Effigies that can and should be taken by pretty much any Master within a faction.

Viks getting "Mercenary" as their keyword rather than "Sister" seems fine; this way the crew can focus on more than AshVik, BloodVik, Student, and Vanessa. No other Master's theme focuses on the idea of anything-goes motley crews of Mercs than the Viks.

I assume Von Schill will get "Freikorps" as his professional mercs are more of a merc company than what the Viks have. Parker gets Bandits, Misaki gets Last Blossom, etc. The Viks have always been the impromptu leader and willing to accept pretty much anyone willing to work alongside them.

Some great alts, and not just the funny ones.* Graves + Tannen that look like they belong in Neverborn, Ototo not flying through the air (here's hoping he's HUGE when standing up), a second Rogue Necro for the spammers (guilty), a less spindly Vanessa.

Also there's a part of me that wants those ponies for M3E, since I seem to accidentally be playing Gremlins now with Brew's allegiance change

*Lenny as Cena is pretty great tho

Hey, did anyone here what the plans are with the planned two player starter sets, given the announcement of M3?

They weren’t starters, they’re like story encounter things. They don’t have rules or anything in.

I was answering you, not being pedantic. Nothing’s changing because they aren’t anymore tied to m2 rules as a normal box is.

Yeah, I would assume that they will be treated like everything else during the transition: at some point, they'll either start putting MK3 cards in them or stop making them. Why would they be different?

I'm pretty sure they're both available at GenCon right now and will be heading to stores soon. I know at the very least I've seen people with the Backdraft set in their haul.

Marcus looks younger. I'm wondering if those are all final sculpts or just printed copies. Lady J certainly is.

I hope we get a new Cojo. I still haven't painted mine. Don't like the lack of fur sculpted on the body!

Those have to be resin/3D prints. The detail is frankly too crisp, particularly on Marcus, unless Wyrd seriously upped their plastic game since last I checked in. Raspy's cloak also has too sharp details on the inner lining.

Marcus does indeed look younger. Maybe Neverborn rejuvenated him, since he always seemed about mid 40's based on the art. I do dig the new look though. Same w Raspy, whose existing plastic sculpt is the blandest thing since lukewarm tapwater. Why is an ice mage huddling up inside her parka? Not to mention the static pose.

The orange stuff definitely looks 3D print, but the grey could very well be plastic - WGF does excellent plastic, and is moving to finer tooling for KDM, so it's not out of the question.

A lot of the M2E master sculpts are surprisingly understated. They went for a very stoic pose to be surrounded by a wilder gang. Looks great on the box, but I noticed pretty early on that it led to masters feeling bland on their own.

Marcus has actually been getting younger for a while. When he came to Malifaux he was actually an old man, I want to say Ramos's peer or older. Tapping into Malifaux's nature magic rejuvenated him and there's been an ongoing thread about how the more of it it draws on the more youthful he appears.

I vaguely remember reading that about Malifaux rejuvenating him.

Has anyone seen scale pictures of the new release stuff? I'm curious just how big things are like the new Ototo and some of the alts.

Found this on the Wyrd store's banner:



Are they in the same scale? I dunno. Is it vaguely useful? I dunno either



Also discovered the freebie this time around!

I wonder about the rogue necromancy. I remember Grootslang renders made it look big, but I didn't expect it to be as huge as it turned out!

Screw it, going to order more stuff, even if it doesn't actually see game time til 3rd edition rolls around.

The first plastic was pretty damn big (and awesome). I imagine this is going to be roughly the same size. However you can't always tell w Wyrd, as they have sometimes had scaling issues (crouching samurai, viks, TTB females etc). I havent heard about any recently though, so maybe they now get print outs before signing off on the mold.

I think that new Snowstorm model will be enough to get me to start in M3E . Looks so sweet!

Is that Santana-like model shooting into the Death Marshal coffin supposed to be Lady Justice? The pose looks terrible, and it's weird to see her using a gun instead of her large sword. That can;t be Lady J, can it?

Not the biggest fan of the current Midriff Anime Samurai Lady J, but I might have to pick up the box real quick if her new pose is going to look like that. RIP The Judge.

I was going to order the Ototo for use in Test of Honour, but $9.30 to ship a single $15 fig is silly. And the alternate shipping is almost $15 and takes an additional day .

Yeah... that lady J model is pretty awful. If that's the direction the style/sculpting is headed, I think I'll pick up the few things I've been half meaning to, before they're replaced with the new look.

I'm reminded of Guardians of the Galaxy 2, only with Perdita saying "It's just, swords were your thing and guns were mine."

The head looks like it has a blindfold, but doesnt really match the mini pose (which is just stiff and awkward), so I'm wondering if it's just a head swap on a regular death marshal. That's a pretty dinky blade for Lady J.
