The room was full with lots of games going on, so it was great to see. Malifaux was the only miniature game represented as this is a mostly a board game group. This did have me a little concerned if Malifaux would draw any attention but I think it actually worked in it's favour with lots of people coming over to check out the miniatures and terrain and we quickly got 3 players wanting to give it a try.
|The setup. Shawn is giving a quick background and game explanation. Yes I forgot the fences.|
|Two of the victims, I mean players checking out the stat cards.|
Once again it was Guild/Resurrectionists vs. Arcanists. The figures used were:
Guild with Perdita, Nino and the Peacekeeper.
Resurrectionists with Nicodem, Mortimer and 2 Punk Zombies
Arcanist with two crews:
Ramos with 2 SteampunkArachnids and the Steamborg Executioner
Rasputina with Wendigo, Ice Gamon and a Ice Golem.
The game proceeded with the crews closing on each other with Nicodem raising a few extra troops along the way and Ramos raising a Arachnid swarm. Nino took to a rooftop while Rasputina starting throwing up her ice columns to block LOS and movement into her side of the table.
|The crews close in. Nino's on the roof and ice columns are up. One was destroyed by the the Peacekeeper.|
|The Arcanists, agents of chaos advance while talking tactics.|
|The Resurrectionist player. I suspect Nicodem is about to raise another Punk Zombie.|
brought Perdita down to 1 point . Then the Peacekeeper joined in and speared Perdita in the back of the head killing her. Way to go Peacekeeper!(if you remember they were on the same side)
|The Steamborg about to shove some zombies around.|
|The corpse counter left by Perdita after her own Peacekeeper speared her through the back. It is experimental equipment!|
|The Peacekeeper trying to smash it's way in. Not successfully. Did I mention it was experimental.|
Overall a great game, the guys that joined in where great to play with and caught on to the mechanics quite quickly and most importantly I believe they had fun. The game generated some interest and who knows maybe a few new players. Some people that were not able to play expressed an interest to try it out in the future so perhaps the Halifax area Malifaux group will grow.
If I got any points of the battle mixed up I'm sure I will be told as I am just going off memory.
|Contemplating what to do.|
Other than that not much else to say. I played Runewars with my son over a few days and pulled out a win there.
