Waldo's Weekly - The Old Razzle Dazzle

Wyrd_NewsImage_WaldosWeekly.jpg

Wacky Wednesday Wyrdos!

It's me again, with the latest on what's been happening at Wyrd HQ! This week Waldo gathered us all to the break room and made us watch his "magic act." Matt tried to tell him that swallowing things whole and yelling "POOF!" wasn't the same as magic but Waldo didn't seem to care. So now I have to rescue my cat from an imp's stomach. I don't even know how he got a hold of my poor Pumpkin. But before I go off to make that poor life choice, let's talk about a star who can really make some magic, Colette Du Bois!

WaldosWeekly_0417_Colette_Art.jpg

Colette remains just as tricky as ever in M3E. The Df/WP Ability Fade Away paired with Showstopper makes her difficult to keep targeted, and highly mobile. Illusionist encourages your opponent to put some space between this Master when she's Unburied or face some rough repercussions. Colette's Attacks can pile on the Distracted Condition and use that stack of Distracted for tactical advantage. The Presto-Chango and Practiced Choreography Actions allow for the same movement tricks that we all know and love to use (or loathe playing against).

Now let's get a look at our head gal at the Star Theater, with this wonderful mobile wallpaper! Now you can take Colette's show on the road!

Easter 2019 Newsletter

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Hey Wyrdos,

After having a blast the last few weeks while away at Adepticon and GAMA, we are finally back in the office. And just in time for our annual Easter Sale!

This year's Easter Sale will start Sunday, April 14th and end on April 22nd. This newsletter covers what will be available when the store opens, so keep scrolling down to find out more!
Before we get into the details of the Easter Sale, what better time is there to remind everyone about two new Fate Decks that were released via DriveThruRPG than right now?

Just last week, we made available a Pixel Fate Deck and a Saloon Deck that are both exclusive to DriveThruRPG. For just $12.00 each (plus shipping), you can get your hands on these amazing fan-created decks!
We like to have fun when creating alt models for our annual sales. During last year's Easter Sale, we had Ross Jebson, a Gremlin with a knack for painting happy little pig bellies (don't fret: he's available this year, too). 

This year's no different (okay, it's a little different). The Neverborn's favorite burlap sack, the Stitched Together, are mixing things up a bit. Instead of being filled with meat and bones, the Bear-ly Together alt models are made of cotton, candy, and mayhem.

These alt models are available as one package with three unique sculpts for just $35.00, made out of the same plastic as the vast majority of our Malifaux models. Make sure to get your hands on these adorable stuffed animals, exclusively during this year's Easter Sale*!

*Disclaimer: Bear-ly Togethers are feverishly hungry and their favorite food is glue-dipped fingers. Assemble and paint at your own risk. 
Even beyond our brand new alt models, we're taking this year's Easter Sale one step further. We will be including Malifaux Third Edition cards with each of the associated models purchased so you can start playing with them right away.

That's right; everything you see on the list below that is a Malifaux model will also include the Malifaux Third Edition cards that are needed to play them when M3E launches early this summer.

If you've already got all of the rare and limited models that your shelves can handle, then you won't need to worry about buying a duplicate model for the new cards. All of our M3E cards will be free to download on our website once the game hits store shelves. 
In addition to the Bear-ly Together alt models, here is what you'll find available during this year's Easter Sale:
  • He-Kome
  • Alt Reva
  • Ross Jebsen (an Easter favorite!)
  • Alt Viks (an Easter favorite!)
  • Unicorn Vomit & Pixie Farts
  • Alt Rafkin
  • Vintage Misaki
  • Vintage Rasputina
  • Vintage Som'er
  • Vintage Pandora
  • Vintage Hamelin
  • Vintage Sonnia
  • Alt Bishop
  • Miss Ery - Bad Teddy
  • Cat Princess set
  • Cat Herders set
  • Curiosity Killed the Cat
  • War Wabbit (an Easter classic!)
  • Dark Carnival Coryphee
  • Dark Carnival
  • Crossroads 7
Other special and limited edition products will be available during the Easter Sale, but won't have updated Third Edition cards (just yet).

Orders will not be fulfilled until starting April 17th, so we appreciate everyone's patience! Additionally, when making an order, make sure that everything is correct before hitting the last "Check Out" button; alterations to orders after they have been submitted will not be possible. 
If the art for the Bear-ly Togethers wasn't cute enough, here's what these magnificent little miscreants look like when they're fully painted (and full from feasting).

That's it from us. See you during the sale!

Waldo's Weekly - Look for the Bear Necessities

Wyrd_NewsImage_WaldosWeekly.jpg

Wonderful Wednesday Wyrdos!

This week, Kyle has asked me to play distraction for Waldo, and I happily obliged. While running something to the warehouse today, I stumbled upon Waldo wings deep in a pile of cloth, stuffing, and some vaguely menacing looking meat. He had two bear... things, and a pile of what looked like failed prototypes. Using my most soothing tone, I asked Waldo who his new friends were.   Oddly enough, the little guys share names with a couple of our designers.  I'm not sure if they are the start of an army of minions or voodoo dolls, but they are pretty darn cute in a menacing way.

M3E_StatCards_Neverborn_BearlyTogether-2_Page_1.png

Bear-ly Together are an Alt version of Stitched Together that will fit right in with your Teddy or Miss Ery! Their Fiendish Gamble Ability pairs great with the cards removed from the game by Lucid Dream, and enemies definitely won't want to get too close with their Bloated Stench Ability. Let's take a look!

M3E_StatCards_Neverborn_BearlyTogether-1_Page_2.png

Looking at the back of the card, Gamble for your Life is an Action that has the potential to bring the pain to enemy models, and the Bloody Fate Trigger provides a measure of card draw. This is an action that will also benefit from Fiendish Gamble, to keep the odds in your favor!

Here is a look at the models, painted by the talented Curtis Shoemake!

19-Easter_Newsletter_Bear-lyTogether.jpg

Bear-ly Together are a webstore exclusive and will be available for the Easter Sale, which will start Sunday, April 14th and run until midday on Monday the 22nd! Our websale this year features several models that are only available through our yearly sales, so be sure to take a peek at what's available when the newsletter comes out because it's got some very interesting news!

Waldo's Weekly - Pick a Deck, Any Deck

Wyrd_NewsImage_WaldosWeekly.jpg


Hey Wyrdos,

We just got back from Adepticon and while we were gone, we found Waldo making a house of cards. Amazingly enough, it was in the shape of Nicodem’s mortuary. As soon as we told him that we were impressed, he dropped another house of cards on it, and then set them on fire. Huh, fitting.

Anyway, now that we’re all out of cards in the office, we thought it might be an opportune time to release TWO new Fate Decks! And they’re available for print-on-demand on DriveThruRPG… RIGHT NOW!

The first Fate Deck is none other than the Pixel Fate Deck! Take a trip down nostalgia lane to travel back in time (or forward in time, if you’re stuck in Malifaux…) to when the greatest in graphical technology was 16-bit sprites. You can get your hands on the Pixel Fate Deck for only $12.00 by following this link.

The second Fate Deck is the Saloon Fate Deck, which was drawn by one of the community’s favorite fan artists, and we are excited to finally have it available. The artist took a fun and burlesque approach to some of Malifaux’s leading characters. You can find this mature-themed (as in not for the young or faint of heart) Saloon Fate Deck for only $12.00 by following this link.

Both of these fantastic Fate Decks were made by members of our community; the Pixel Fate Deck was created by Milos Kostic and the Saloon Deck was created by Felis Ryltha. To get your hands on both of them, head over to DriveThruRPG.com.

Expect to see more of these decks coming out of our vault in the future!

In this month's newsletter, we're tackling our new and upcoming releases (including a pre-release or two!), what we're bringing with us to Adepticon, and more.
Are you headed to Adepticon this year? If you're still on the fence about it, check out some of the events that we're hosting at the big con.

Malifaux 2nd Edition - Send-Off Tournament

This is the end of an era. The best of the best are coming out to fight for the final title: Champion of Malifaux.This is the last Wyrd run M2E tournament.

The Other Side - Titan Smash

What’s better than a giant robot, a hydra, a mechanical colossus, and an aquatic monstrosity duking it out for glory? Nothing. This event will have players bring their Titans out to bear as they fight for control of the arena.

As a thank you to our fantastic Adepticon community, we decided to do something a little special this year. If you're headed to Adepticon but don't think you'll have time to make it into one of our events, don't worry! We've still got something up our sleeves.

Waldo's Weekly - We're Gonna Need a Bigger Bookshelf

Wyrd_NewsImage_WaldosWeekly.jpg

Hey Wyrdos,

This week, we found Waldo cleaning. Yes, cleaning. We couldn’t believe it either. As it turns out, when no one is around to watch the stuff you set on fire burn to ash, it isn’t nearly as much fun. With us at GAMA last week showing off some of the fantastic stuff we have in store for 2019, Waldo was driven to absolute boredom - to the extent that he resorted to cleaning up the place. But now that we’re back, he wanted to see some of the new stuff that we’re planning on for the future of Malifaux (before he sets it all on fire, of course).  

The beta for Malifaux Third Edition is coming to a close (finally!). As we’re wrapping up stats and abilities on some of your favorite models, we figured it would be a great time to show you what else will be coming alongside the release of Malifaux Third Edition. So, in addition to new boxes, sculpts, models, cards, rules, and ways to play, we are also releasing new Malifaux books.

That’s right, books, as in plural. Many, many books. So many books that we might be building a book fort in the offices. One book per Faction will be hitting store shelves either at Malifaux Third Edition’s launch or shortly thereafter (we’ll be staggering book releases a tad, but don’t worry – all of the information you’ll need to play will be immediately available). Across all of the books, we’ll be covering new characters, art, bios, and stories (so many stories!).

These stories will push the lore and world in new and exciting (sometimes scary) directions, further expanding what we’ve grown familiar. Dig deep enough into them and you’re sure to find a secret or seven along the way. Some are more obvious than others.

So, this week, Waldo wanted to reveal just what those books will look like. Here are the covers of all seven Faction books!

WaldosWeekly_0320_Books.jpg

Above all else, though, the most important book to own is the rulebook, which will be available immediately upon Third Edition’s launch, either on our website for free or on store shelves in print. So that’s eight books in total!

Now, with all of this “launch” and “release” talk, you might be wondering when. Well, wonder no more, because Malifaux Third Edition will be available…

WaldosWeekly_0320_EarlySummer.jpg

Next week, we’ll be at Adepticon, so Waldo will be too occupied keeping the office from setting itself on fire, so we’ll be giving him another week off. Once we get back, we’ll have more awesome stuff to show off and talk about!

See you then.
