My first game of Malifaux - battle report

Postby madaxeman » Mon Sep 22, 2014 10:33 pm

There's a vague possibility that there are lots of DBx-based historical miniatures/Malifaux/GW-universe crossover gamers reading this who may have seen my blog / website update already, but for those of you who aren't in that (probably small) demographic, I've posted a match report from my first ever game of Malifaux on my website.

It was a lot of fun, which is a great relief after having bought the rules and spent the thick end of another £70 (probably... don't tell the wife!) on figures and then having spent plenty of time painting and basing them up too.

For my (and my opponents) first game we set up an over-ambitious Mei Feng vs Sonnia Criid 50 SS matchup that we managed to get through in about 5 hours, which is not too bad given neither of us had ever played before - some of the combos were rather complex and I've tried to highlight some of the rules mechanics in the writeup

A brand new "Steampunk Hannibal" makes an appearance as well (if you see some of my other reports for other gaming systems, you'll quickly realise that he critiques pretty much everything I do) as well as a smattering of poor jokes and irrelevant video interludes.

There's also a clunking great robot who's almost a train and who hits people with an enormous metal bar as well.

What's not to like?!

Very entertaining, thank you for that ...

My first game of Malifaux is still yet to come.

Here's another report!

In my 2nd ever Malifaux report, Evil Steampunk-magic-using Marxist Drug-runner Mei Feng takes on a man on a horse and his big fat Edward Scissorhands best friend in a strange urban cowboy landscape as two players struggle again to get to grips with what the hell they are up to ..

There is kung-fu, there are dogs and eagles, there is a Sikh with a machine gun and there is a lawyer (sending guns and money..?).

Who knows what it all means - but as long as everything gets set on fire, it will surely all be good in the end!

Nice - loving the descriptions, and having my eye on the Rail Crew as my first toe in Malifaux's waters, it's cool to see how Mei Feng plays!
