Broken Promises Now Available In Digital Format

Just yesterday, I was talking with my friend about a game and a rules question came up. We didn’t have the rulebook on hand, but we did have a digital version of it. So looking up the rule was super-easy. Now, don’t get me wrong. I love flipping through a rulebook, but having a digital version is also pretty damn handy. Well, for those that want Broken Promises, the Malifaux book, in PDF, you can now get it.

Wyrd Previews The Commander For Through The Breach

Wyrd keeps a nice, steady schedule for their previews. I can certainly appreciate that. I’m a big fan of routine. So, as it’s Monday, that means some new art to look at. In this case, it’s from the Through the Breach book, Above the Law. Check out the Commander.

Wyrd Posts New Medical Automaton Artwork

It’s Monday!
Ok, so it’s not. It’s actually Tuesday. I can tell because of the shirt I’m wearing. Many of us had Monday off here in the states, including me. So it’s a bit of catch-up this morning. One item is Wyrd’s regular Monday post. In this case, it’s some alternate art for the Medical Automaton for Malifaux.

Wyrd Previews Electrocutioners For The Other Side

I hate when the power goes out. And I’m sure most of you would agree. It’s never an opportune time. It’s always, “damn. I was right in the middle of ____.” Well, if you were an Electrocutioner, you could probably just plug your big gun-thing into the socket and power up whatever you needed. They’re today’s preview for The Other Side from Wyrd.

Wyrd Posts Up October Releases

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
At least, as far as I’m concerned, anyway. And playing Malifaux certainly is appropriate, as it’s got a rather spooky and macabre feel to it. And now you can check out what will be released this month for the game (as well as a sneak-peek at what’ll be out next month).

Midweek Snippets

It’s halfway over. The work week is about half-done for most of us. With any luck, you’re looking forward to a weekend of gaming. I might be doing some of that. But I can guarantee that I’ll be doing some baking. Actually, that’ll start tomorrow. We’re having a chili and dessert cook-off here at the office on Friday. Then, over the weekend, I need to “pay for” a custom game mat design a friend did by baking him some of his favorite treats and sending them off. Hey, the barter system is alive and well among my friends. You do some graphic design for me and I’ll bake cookies and brownies for you. But before we get to those bite-size treats, let’s nosh on some bite-size gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Final Days for Cult of Barnacle Bay on Kickstarter, MASK FX Camouflage tape is back, 17 New Releases Available From Dark Sword Miniatures, New Void Elves Available From Raging Heroes, New Orc Mechanic Available From Kromlech, and Voting For Round 1 of Iron Painter Happening Now.

Wyrd Previews Bayou Smuggler for Malifaux

You know, if you want an illegal bayou, or don’t want to have to pay all sorts of nasty import taxes on a bayou, you get yourself a bayou smuggler. Only they are able to get these hard-to-transport marshy outlets of a lake or river to you.
*gets handed a note*
Oh… they don’t actually smuggle bayous. They are just smugglers who happen to reside in a bayou.
That… makes a lot more sense.
Anyway, Wyrd is showing off artwork for one that wasn’t in the Broken Promises book, as well as giving us a bit of background on them.

Wyrd Previews Breachlings For The Other Side

It’s Wyrds tradition to book-end the work week with previews. Mondays we get some new Malifaux artwork. Friday we get a The Other Side preview. Well, I’ve got my Friday shirt on. So that must mean it’s time for a The Other Side preview. And Wyrd’s right on time to give it to us. This time around, it’s the grotesque Breachlings.

Wyrd’s Iron Painter Competition Happening Now

Most painting competitions out there have you paint up a single piece and submit it as your entry. Wyrd’s Iron Painter is like that… kinda, except for the fact that you’re doing that multiple times in a row, each time with a new piece that has to be better than the last one if you want to advance on. It’s painting at your highest level consistently over the course of the competition. Not many can hack it (I certainly can’t!). But if you think you can, now’s your chance to enter.

Wyrd Posts Friday The Other Side Preview

I’ve mentioned that there’s tons of stuff going on this weekend. That includes Burning Man. So, considering Wyrd posts a preview from The Other Side each Friday, and today’s Friday, and Burning Man is going on, they figured they’d show off the titan for the Cult of the Burning Man. Seems appropriate.

Wyrd Games Previews the Lord of Steel for The Other Side

Fridays are pretty damn awesome, if you ask me. This is well-known. Part of the reason is because Wyrd has their regular previews. Today, for The Other Side, we get a look at another Abyssinian commander. Now, when I think of the name “the Lord of Steel,” I have a certain picture in my mind. I have to say, this figure comes pretty close to it.

Wyrd Games Posts Gen Con Specials

I’ve mentioned how this week is flying by. That also means that Gen Con is flying towards us at a very high rate of speed (about 24 hours per day). There’s still lots of prep to do before the show, such as getting a “to buy” list together for all the cool things that’re gonna be at the show. Wyrd is well-known for having lots of cool show specials. And they’ve posted them all in one place to help you sort through them all.

Wyrd Previews The Frenzy For The Other Side

You know, bull sharks have been seen in fresh water. They have been found in rivers in Australia and in places even as far away from the ocean as St. Louis. And that’s with them swimming in the water. Just think if those sharks could run across the land. Well, unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on if you’re looking at their teeth or their tail), in The Other Side, there are land sharks. He’s known as the Frenzy, and we get a look at him (he’s apparently a commander, even!) in this Friday Preview.
