The wars back on Earth have taken quite a toll! The people of Malifaux are concerned about their previous homes, and want to help send supplies back to Earth. Of course the Guild's strict laws mean that they have to do this in more...illicit ways. Homefront allows players to have a hand in the fate of both Malifaux and Earth.

Hey Wyrdos! Time for another Malifaux preview! Today we are taking a look at the art for Hinamatsu from Broken Promises. Let's learn a little bit about this puppet!
Hinamatsu is an old puppet. Given life only a short time after Collodi itself, Hinamatsu was created to perform in theater productions opposite living actors. It grew jealous of the attention heaped upon the other performers, however, and murdered one of them out of spite. Fearing further incidents, Hinamatsu's master lured it into entering an underground vault near Debtor's Delve and sealed the puppet inside. Locked away in that hidden place for over a century, Hinamatsu swore that it would never again follow another's instructions.
Let's take a look!

Happy Friday Wyrdos! It's time for another peek into The Other Side. Today we are looking at the Grenadiers. The King's Empire is all about shooting, and these guys make sure that their shots get the job done!
The battlefields of the early 1900s have changed drastically from even a few decades prior. The King’s Empire has adapted to the changing nature of war by creating the Grenadiers, soldiers who are trained in the use of the grenade launcher. Fitted with the ability to use multiple types of ammo, these grenade launchers allow Grenadiers to hunt the biggest threats on the battlefield: blocks of infantry soldiers and the massive Titans. Being in the thick of fighting does not bode well for their survival rate, but the recent adoption of gas masks has given them a better chance of coming home.
On the tabletop, the Grenadiers are capable of using their Grenade Launchers to deal a lot of damage to light infantry units. They also have a good chance of taking down Titans with their high-powered Rocket Grenade attack. They are a straightforward unit, but one whose versatility makes them an excellent addition to many forces.
The grenadiers are sure to make a mess of the enemy! Head on over to our forums to discuss this awesome new unit!

Hey Wyrdos! Time for another Monday Preview! Today we are going to take a look at the Bone Pile from Broken Promises. What is special about it, is this art is not in the new book! This is the first look anyone is getting of it. Let's learn a little about the Bone Pile.
In the summer of 1906, the Ressurectionist Nicodem raised a horde of zombies and marched on the Guild Enclave. He was defeated, however, and nearly all of his zombies were destroyed by the Death Marshals. In the wake of his attack, corpses became scarce and the other Ressurectionists were forced to open up older tombs and crypts to find new minions. Thus was born the Bone Pile.

Happy Friday Wyrdos! It's time for another preview from the Other Side. We have looked at the commanders who lead their forces, and the titans who tower over the battlefields. Now it is time to look at the units who make up the bulk of the fighting forces of the Other Side. We are going to start with the Striped Skulkers of the Gibbering Hordes!
The Skulkers embody stealth. Their skin pigment changes to match their surroundings, making them very difficult to see until it is too late. They try to stick to dark places, slinking from shadow to shadow as they creep up on their unsuspecting prey. Worse yet, their incredibly sharp teeth contain a potent venom, making them effective against even larger prey.
On the table, Striped Skulkers are forward scouts and assassins that are more self-reliant than other Hordes forces. Unlike other units, it can sometimes be a good idea to let Striped Skulkers perish when attacked, as they can use the Endless Numbers Ability of the Gibbering Hordes Allegiance to come back almost anywhere in play. This allows them to continually reappear in strange places on the battlefield, ensuring that the opponent must continually protect their objectives to keep them from being stolen away by a unit of reappearing Skulkers.
