I recently had my first test game of Malifaux with a friend and I must say I am intrigued. Its high accessibility combined with depth of strategy and relatively quick playtime is very appealing to me.
Here is my crew, the Redchapel gang. Feels like a good start to get an understanding and at the same time with pleasing aesthetics which will make painting them a joy.
Assembling them on the other hand was not very joyful. These little metal guys require some quite intricate pinning. My hands were sore and full of glue a couple of hours afterwards, but that was an ok price to pay!
So far I have purchased the following:
- Redchapel starter box
- Zuzzy game mat 3'x3'
- Two totems for Seamus
- The fancy bases the gang is mounted on
- Two fate decks
- The 1.5 core rulebook
- A couple of terrain pieces from Sarissa
All of which will be very easy to sell, should I not like this endeavour into the Breach. However, I already have a positive vibe. Let's see how deep the rabbit hole goes.
