Some news and a render from this morning.

This week, Waldo, that clever boy, was out rummaging in his giant archaeological pit in the back of the office. It got very quiet (never a good sign when Waldo’s around) and then our cups of water started to ripple. There was an ear-splitting roar, and lo and behold, Waldo stomped into view riding atop a… well, take a look for yourself:

It seems like life, uh, always finds a way. Thanks to Titania’s magic, the Malisaurus Rex once again walks the Wildlands! Curious to see just how big this royalty-among-lizards will be? Take a look at the sculpt*:

With the Fae and Apex keywords, the Malisaurus Rex can be included in Titania’s force as well as Lord Cooper’s. The other Explorers can borrow Cooper’s pet**, of course, but need to pay a little extra.

Want to venture further into the Wildlands? Want to raise a pet Malisaurus for yourself***? Then check out Jurassic Faux, a Through the Breach One-Shot that specifically focuses on the new growth between the Knotwoods and Nythera! You can grab it here for just $5 on DriveThruRPG!"






Could be ineteresting. I love the look of the Fae but have never played, but one thing I believe they need is a bit more punch. Maybe this is going to do wonders for them.

I know 3 people personally who have looked and Malifaux and asked for a Dinosaur faction. The Apex master from the new faction this guy works with looks to be great fun as well.

Jesus Wyrd, why even HAVE bases if you're going to have 90% of the miniature hang over it on all sides...

60mm bases... And I'll leave it at that- aside from broken Ankles...



At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

Assuming that Gremlin is on a 30mm base, that Rex looks like it's on a 40mm base. It'll probably be bumped to at least 50mm. I'm actually wondering if the unit will have an engagement range of 3.

M3E fiddled around with a few base sizes between 2nd and 3rd causing me to rebase predominantly because of the model's size.

Honestly, for the vast majority of the line, models are on bases that are far larger than they actually need. There's only a few that overhang, but they tend to be the 50 mm bases.

It's a game where each side has 6-10 models spread across board, with no facing requiremens, most of which of 1 - 2" melee range. Fitting it in melee isn't going to be an issue worth complaining about. I mean, I appreciate this is the internet, but to consider this could be a problem worth spending typing time on is silly.

Alt Hungering Darkness on a 50mm base:

Spoiler:


That dino will feel right at home.

I rather love the dynamic sculpts that I feared would be missing in M3E especially with the release of Youko and Basse.'s boxes.

The stupid dino is way worse than the hungering darkness, which is itself a fairly egregious example. That they're getting mocked on their own forum, indicates they should just reconsider and add a new bigger base size.

Because it really doesn't matter and having larger bases impacts the ability to make dense terrain without substantially impacting the ability to play models on those larger bases?

Hot Take: This M-Rex sculpt is kind of pants in general, and I'm saying that as a career dino / rex / tentacles / spikes fan. Looks rather strung out, weedy and ill-proportioned, and I can think of several fantasy dinos I'd rather use, and that stand more upright so better fit on a base. Could well be that single render angle, but I'm sorely disappointed - and reminded of Horomatangi, a model that was pretty exciting as art but derped up proportionally in the sculpt

That's one of the big challenges of sprue plastic you don't see handled well outside of GW's expertise unfortunately. I find large creatures often end up looking thin compared to what can be done in resin or metal.

I like it although the render's head looks a bit too big.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I had problems with far less ridiculous overhangs, between tall models and heavy scenery use: trying to get in melee with the model hugging a wall will be a pain, regardless, and when positioning matters as much as it does in Malifaux, getting within 2" of where you'd like to be isn't a reasonable design.

Also, this is a forum about fighting toys. Do you really think that most of the posts here are done out of the intention to spend time efficiently?

That's because Wyrd has some seriously weak render artists who don't understand the concept of perspective, and poor QC. It's why we kept getting oversized crouching figures (samurai, Viks, flesh construct victim, etc) or malformed sculpts like the watcher's wings being different sizes. A gaming acquaintance was a project manager for the Other Side, and said it was maddening to have to send back sculpt after sculpt because they kept using this guy who made all the limbs extra long (see the craptastic multipart female models from TTB). Their models are generally low texture and grossly overpriced for their quality because Nathan wants to run with the big dogs and put out HIPS kits when they don't have the sales numbers to warrant it or the skill to pull it off. I wish this game would get sold off to someone who could better manage it.

Huh. The misunderstanding of perspective makes a lot of sense with some of their issues.

The sculpts on the British for The Other Side are a good example of the problems with the sculpts IMO:



IMO they should never have got past an initial QC pass on the sculpts, should have been sent back for rework.

This years ‘Nightmare’ box is a cyberpunk rendition of Mei Feng, which I think is pretty darn cool. I especially like that the cards match the theme too (this might be the case for all the nightmare boxes, I’m not sure).

Usually the cards are the regular style just with the alt art, name, and counts as disclaimer. This box is the first I’m aware of with a complete restyle of the cards.

I'm down with the cyberpunk and I was quite saddened by the original rail workers, so this is totally something I'm going to have to grab.

Looks like we missed her here, but the miss model this year is alt-Fuhatsu:



I'd actually be interested in her by herself, she'd be an easy slot into my Mei crew

I'm kinda confused. The thrown back shoulders/arched back/stepping feet makes it difficult for me to tell what motion is going on (advancing? retreating?), since that doesn't look like a good regular firing/bracing pose...

Not being able to tell whether they’re coming or going while firing is entirely in character for Fuhatsu.

Was material mentioned for Miss Guided?

I know the alt posed guy from the Other Side ended up being metal. Which I still haven't built, along with everything else I ordered during that sale... ugh.

That's cute, but it really just looks like someone who pieced together action elements and came up with a design that doesn't make sense. Is it also in-character to have cloth more affected by movement than hair, for instance? Hair is blown from behind a little; cloth us blown from below and front; or if their movement is from momentum, IDK, someone else try to figure out what movement would produce that...
