#1: Malifaux: Gothic/Steampunk/Victorian horror & the Wild West Author: td9993, Location: SpokanePosted: Thu May 08, 2014 7:11 pm ----
We've expanded our Malifaux section and are excited to see it starting to really move.
Based in an alternate Earth, Malifaux uses gothic, steampunk, Victorian horror with a dose of the wild west to inject fun and depth into the magical lawlessness of a world rife with monsters, necropunks, man-machine hybrids, gunslingers, and power-hungry politicos. Actively using character-driven stories to define the world of Malifaux, seek your fortune in this fast-paced and brutal 32mm tabletop miniature skirmish game.
Malifaux is a skirmish miniature game in a horror/steampunk setting.
Each player builds a force of 5-7 figures from a faction to battle it out. A force is composed of minions and at least one master.
Malifaux involves elements of resource management as hands of cards are used instead of dice to resolve skill checks.
Each check involves drawing a card from a deck and adding it to a figure's statistic. Players can then use cards from
their hands to raise the value. The highest value in an opposed check wins.
The turn system is integrated, with each player alternating turns between model activations.
The great thing about the miniatures is they can be used for other games. You really have to come and see what cool sculpts they have done.
