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...


My favorite part is that she's packing around a hundred bullets that would need to be manually loaded into a gatling gun for a whole second of firing. Luckily, she appears to be carrying enough fuel to blow herself and half of main street in those thigh canisters. I'm assuming that's fuel - I don't see anything she's carrying that would need a liquid of such quantities, unless she has some kind of gun oil obsession.

Oof fair point re: how wind works. It does look rather copy-pasta'd from different elements, doesn't it?

If we're talking abut elements of Malifaux that don't make sense you've missed a few.

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


You are absolutely right.
That was cute.

I can't shake the feeling that you all have never seen the model that this is an alt of.

I've been thinking about vanilla Fuhatsu too, and wondering if the cape thing is way more to emulate the little dudes out the back than anything to do with wind or physics

Can't speak for others, but I have.

I'm sick of magic or the setting isn't Earth or whatever else being used to justify sloppy, poorly thought out model design or narrative or inattention to detail. Sometimes designs are just lazy and bad. Sometimes one doesn't care, but that doesn't mean they're not lazy designs or whatever, and I don't think their lack of attention needs to be somehow justified.

He's umm.... mentally damaged and, well.... lets just say this is not Wyrd's most considerate character design....

I'm honestly kind of surprised they're drawing attention to him with this alt sculpt. The M3E rules kind of swept him in the corner where I assumed he'd be quietly removed from the game after a bit.

To be fair, it is Malifaux, so tripods are more valuable. I mean, you can't swing a dead orphan without hitting a few orphans.

Fuhatsu is a solid pick in certain situations. He's a surprisingly tanky Versatile Ruthless model which is immune to Obey effects. The biggest reason he wasn't initially chosen was that Ten Thunders have too many great Versatile models anyways and Samurai fill the generalist niche just fine for the time being. With the guided missile that is Yasunori nerfed, there's room for Fuhatsu especially in some Factional keywords that don't have a lot of shooting and can spare the cards like Youko.

Really hope we get a lot more of these from Wyrd, video content to keep your community/customers informed, engaged, invested, hyped etc is a must in this day and age IMO. Nice to see the faces of the developers working behind the curtain.

I'm so happy they're releasing a great alt Metal Golem. I'm currently proxying some Warmachine model as my Metal Golem because I absolutely hate the current one.

I was about to ask what a metal golem was, but then realized it's just the rail golem renamed.

Did anyone catch the Lord Cooper crew? I've been wanting more Explorers and these look like they'll definitely deliver!

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

Looks like a really damaging elite crew. If I didn't have a Misaki, Lucius and Dashel crew still to paint I'd pick it up.

Newsish, but it looks like Wyrd just remembered they have a Youtube channel. After three years of uploading nothing my Subscritpion feed has gone cooking futs. Firsts all the Gencon stuff, then the broken down Gencon stuff, now they're upload all the Breachside Broadcast episodes.

Every. Single. One of them.
