How balanced is Malifaux?

Wondering how balanced it is, so we can just buy some figures we like and get gaming without having to commit to more purchases to even out our factions.

I've found it pretty balanced on the whole. The starter boxes are really balanced against each other.

Its really well balanced now. The starter boxes are good (well, the plastic second ed ones are). Obviously you'll need to buy more models and a faction deck if you want to play 50 stone games (the standard size).

But its a very balanced game.

To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence."

Yup, the starter boxes are a good grounding to get going.

But be warned, you soon end up buying several anyway!

I would just add that it's best to stick to the new M2e plastic starter boxes balance wise.

Some of the older ones aren't as closely aligned in the new edition.
