August 2018 Newsletter


We're back from another great Gen Con, and thanks to our incredible volunteers, it might have been our best year yet. If you didn't make it to the show, don't worry - we've got you covered. 

In this month's newsletter, we're going over what made this year's Gen Con great, Iron Painter (our annual painting competition), the latest Chronicles issue, and... (drumroll, please) our closed beta! Keep scrolling down to find out more.
We had a lot of great stuff to talk about at this year's Gen Con. We showed off more of The Other Side's models (the Gorysche has some serious board presence), what The Other Side's boxes look like, and of course, gave a glimpse of Malifaux Third Edition. 

Concerns were alleviated, worries were absolved, and the hype skyrocketed. Players got an exclusive look at some new sculpts for both Marcus' and Rasputina's crews, such as the Order Initiates, Wendigo, and Snowstorm. The fantastic updated stat cards were also on the table, gathering collective "ooooh's" and "aaahhh's" from curious passersby.

But in Gen Con tradition, as soon as we got back from the big event, we started planning for the next one. There's just too much awesome stuff that we're working on behind closed doors to talk about in one con! 
Here at Wyrd, we love our painting competitions. We started the year off with Creature Feature, then cleaned our palette for Total Testosterone, and then we just put the last touches with Femme Fatale. But the year's not over, and neither are we.

Our big annual competition, the Iron Painter, is now open for sign-ups, and Round One will begin August 20th. It's time to wash your brushes, pick up some flock, and prep your paint stations, because this year is going to be just as grueling as the last. We can't wait to see how creative our amazing community is with a paint brush.

For this month's issue of Chronicles, we go back to see what our friends Breachside have been up to since we last visited. 

  • Starting Malifaux on a Budget – Gremlins: Getting ready for a bayou hoedown? The best advice for throwing together your Gremlin crew can be found right here!
  • Soulstones in the Rough: Shake the dust off of your less used models and get ready to bring some extra diversity to your next game.
  • Augments & Add-ons – The Widow Weaver: Introduce a new predator who stalks the web of Fate to your Through the Breach campaign.
  • The Sundial: When you mess with time, you might find that Time messes back.
  • Community Highlights - Malifaux Around the World: Learn a little more about Malifaux communities from different places around the world.
  • It’s a Dirty Job…: A Death Marshal’s job gets tougher as he has to explore the Sewers underneath Malifaux.

You can find the latest issue of Chronicles for the low cost of FREE on DriveThruRPG!

Since we announced Malifaux Third Edition, there's been a ton of speculation of what's being changed, updated, removed, added, and so on. We haven't talked about a whole lot of specifics just yet, but we're very close to revealing what's behind the curtain.

Sign-ups for the closed beta are available now, but we are only accepting requests up through the 17th of August. If you want to have a part in testing your favorite models, make sure to head your way there and fill out the form. We'll be launching the closed beta on August 20th, so you'd better sign up soon!
