Is that Grumpus an alt model for something? I still am proxying a Wendigo for my 1stEd metal Rasputina, so it'd make a great "official" Wyrd proxy.

A bit underwhelmed by this year's special offerings, but if the Explorer Society stuff is available (besides the book) I may just pull the trigger anyways. Plus I want to build The Wild Ones.

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

I'm hoping for Alt Reva.

Now "the other side" has been out for a while, what are people's thoughts on it?

I had a look through some of the pages from when the KS was running, and there were a few concerns about the PVC - did the final production material turn out to be any good?

I get the impression there isn't much love coming from Wyrd?

Some of the models were very good, some had a lot of problems with bendy weapons that you couldn’t straighten. Even if you heated them they would just go back to bent. I got the Absynnians, the horses couldn’t stand up to their own weight, the legs would just bend. Also one of the things that i didn’t like was the scale of the big walker was way off, the gunners on the vehicle were 2/3 the size of the regular infantry.

The problems with TOS models that bend under their own weight is something that I think can only be solved by using a different material, or scrapping those particular sculpts in favor of ones with better internal support. The mix they used just doesn't have the rigidity (is that the right term?) for some of the features they tried to use (that material simply cannot hold a joint like the middle of the leg in the Abysinian Walker). I think the big question is how much that'll cost...

At the moment, word is that the two player starter set is delayed because "What are we going to do, release it in the middle of the plague year?"

I really wish people would start dropping names and the like for Explorer's Society...the book's out in the wild. Mine, unfortunately, won't be until December since it's in an order that can't be split with Cutting Edge Technology.

The Flippin Wyrds podcast is doing a show a day this weel, talking about the ES and the new keywords. They started off today with the Versatile models.

Also the app is due to be updated aaaaaaaany time now. Any time..... now. Aaaany-you get the idea. It's a one man band ont he app, though, so some slack is given.

Hey Wyrdos,

We’re excited to announce that the digital PDF of the Explorer’s Society Faction book is now available on DriveThruRPG!

Whether you’re struggling to find yourself a copy at your local game store or prefer to read books on your tablet, the option is available for purchase.

If you purchased a physical copy of the book* and sent in your receipt for the digital PDF promotion, hang tight just a little bit longer. We will start fulfilling those promotions tomorrow (December 1st) and will continue to do so periodically until the promotion is over.

The Explorer’s Society Faction book is filled with four brand new stories that further push the narrative of Malifaux, bios of all the new characters, and stat cards for each of them, as well. We’ll be releasing the stat cards on the Malifaux Crew Builder app and on Dropbox for free on December 23rd, just before the holidays, so this is a great way to start strategizing early!

Head over to DriveThruRPG to pick up your digital Explorer’s Society Faction book today!

*Refunds are not available on the digital copy of the Explorer’s Society Faction book after purchasing a physical copy and fulfilling the digital promotion.

Urrrrrrrrrrrrgh...they made it sound like we were going to get the cards on the app within the first few weeks of December, not the end!

Oh well. There's the info for everyone who wants to get it now. Make sure you let me know what Explorer Vessel Superior is all about!

EVS Keyword with models revealed on Schemes and Stones:

There is also a Performer model and a new Apex model in there.

So I'm wondering if Harpooners are going to be in the Explorer's Society starter set since they're Apex/EVS?

I really like EVS there. Thanks Absolutionis!

I'm very disappointed in the lack of a Big Daddy.

Water guy will be cool alongside Carlos in a Colette crew.

I can't seem to find the Seeker master info. Was that spoiled or am I confusing it with Syndicate?

Guessing the starter will be Maxine, Orville, 3x Machinists, and Kiya.

Thinking Harpooners will come in the Society starter alongside of something Versatile, maybe? Zero idea on Harata or Beebe and Calypso or the Tidecaller.

Remember that Jessie Halliday got revealed a while back as a Wastrel + ES Versatile.
She also has a Harpoon Gun, so I can imagine her being packaged with the Harpooners to make a box set that has a Versatile henchman plus models relevant to EVS and Apex.

Spoiler:


Speculation, but Jules & Verne were mentioned to be a model a while back, and they'd thematically fit very well with EVS.

I'm thinking I might proxy this as the tidecaller. It's more in theme.

Amusingly enough, that's the model I've been using as a Foundry Metal/Rail golem for years.

I was going to use as a proxy for the Rogue Necromancy for my Brine and Bones crew, then Wyrd released the Salty Seadevil, so I have one ready.

We know that Halliday is coming with the Mechagoat and Bellhop Porter in the "Wanderlust" set.

We also know there's some Syndicate/Versatiles in the Outcast starter coming out around the same time as Wanderlust and the ES starter.

Here's the list I have handy of upcoming boxes, dates are all tentative via Miniature Market:
December is Cooper Core and On the Hunt
January is Wanderlust, Malisaurus, Sandworm--also Outcast Starter which has Syndicate items from last we saw.
February is Anya Core, Ivan Core, Dirty Work, and Explorer's Starter.

App updated today. I suppose Wyrd underesteimated the excitement for the faction and how everyone would go out of their way to share the cards. It's a good sign everyone's so excited.

I had mentioned "From Nightmares" before, but are we sure that it's something for the RPG?

GameKastle has it listed as a February release for $45USD.

I was really happy to see the app get updated. It's making picking a crew harder though!

Is it just me or is there a lot of crossover between the different crews going on?

A lot of the Explorers stuff looks really cool. More varied than I expected from the name, with the undead and fungus creature stuff.

Seekers are really cool overall. Great mix of creepy/cool.

English Ivan is the hands down winner for me though. All of his models are just raw style. I don't really want Explorers, but I might just have to pick him up.

EVS doesn't do it for me like I hoped. They feel kind of dull.

Syndicate's master is really cool and I like the models okay, but they have a lot of overlap with Ivan.

Cadmus is a whole bunch of icky nope. Burn it... in a good way.

I'm not a fan of the Apex minions but Cooper himself is a jolly ol'sport and gets a T-rex so....

Worth mentioning that Syndicate is incomplete. There's some stuff that's Syndicate/Outcast Versatile coming in the Outcast starter. I was genuinely surprised they didn't put it in there!

The DUA/Umbra and Syndicate have really made me sit up and take notice. Looks like the Explorer's Starter coming out soon is gonna be an interesting one too...probably with 2x Hopeful Prospects, 3x Botanists, and Mr. Ngaatoro, since he was on the box art that I'm struggling finding along with the Hopeful Prospect #1.
Looks like "Dirty Work" is going to be Corvis Rook and 2x Operatives too...or the surprise Wastrel "Cryptologists". Either way, I'm seeing it listed at $24 which ain't too shabby.

So I'm thinking I'll be in for Anya, Outcast Starter, and Dirty Work!

I'm really liking what I'm seeing too. I thought I'd be in for Cadmus and maybe DUA, but now I've seen it up close, I'm still in for Cadmus but REALLY excited for DUA, will dfeinatly be getting Seeker, probably EVS and even APEX.

One of the things I love about Malifaux is how they pull the looks, story and playstyle of a keyword together, and they;ve nailed it with ES. DUA and Cadmus especially. If only from a painting standpoint I want those and Seeker. I wouldn't be surprised if I end up getting everything except Frontier and Wastrel.

Speaking of, I'm surprised Frontier got nothing in the release.

Technically Rough Riders and Sand Worm despite being spoiled previously.

Good news everyone!

Someone over on the official forum posted up links that show off what's coming in our as yet unseen Core sets(tentatively) for Explorer's Society!

I'm going to group these up by keywords so bear with me.
Syndicate!
Spoiler:

That's Anya, Winston, Sovereign, and Surveyors(who ALSO are Seekers! which is an interesting choice IMO).

Spoiler:

Outcast Starter there is Syndicate/Outcast Versatiles. We have no names or anything for these folks yet.

Spoiler:

Dirty Work is Corvis and two Operatives(WOOT!)--who crossover with DUA!

Versatiles!
Spoiler:

Explorer's Society Starter(Explorer's Society Versatiles) is Mr. Ngaatoro, Tannenbaum(also Seeker!), and Hopeful Prospects.
Spoiler:

Wanderlust is Halliday, Bellhop Porter, and Alpinist.

DUA/Umbra!
Spoiler:

Ivan and Mr. Moordrake, Gibson DeWalt, Eva Havenhand, and Daevas.

So I think I'll be set if I get Outcast Starter, Anya, and Dirty Work. Time to get in syndication, amirite?

Pretty safe to infer Brocken Spectres and Nocturnes will be the together for the rest of Umbra then. Looking like we'll have Syndicate, DUA/Umbra, Apex and half the Versatiles first up and hopefully finishing off the older 2 keywords (Rough Riders and Cryptologists I'm guessing will be the same box to finish Wastrel and Frontier)
