Wyrd Launches The Other Side Kickstarter

We’ve been privy to the goings-on in the world of Malifaux for quite some time now. It’s a dark, spooky, somewhat dream-like world where all sorts of dangerous creatures lay in wait to pounce on any unsuspecting passerby. But that world is connected with the real world. So, what about what’s going on over on the other side? And what happens when that nightmare world invades? That’s just what you get to find out in The Other Side, the new miniatures wargame by Wyrd Games that’s up on Kickstarter now.

In the game, players will take over control of a company of troops (about 30 in the smallest size of the game), from rank-and-file troopers, to giant monsters, to mechanized battle suits. There’s still the Fate Decks, as you have come to know from Malifaux, to deal with combat. The figures all come pre-assembled, so anyone who hates having to deal with really fiddly bits won’t have to worry about that sort of thing here.

The Kickstarter campaign has already passed its funding goal (and then some) and is set to go for another 36 days.

    The minis look pretty great. I got to see a couple of the titans at Gencon.

    It is odd to have units made by Wyrd, though.

    • Yeah. It was kinda odd typing, “armies of around 30 models, minimum” for a Wyrd product, when Malifaux, for the longest time, having like 8 models on the board would be “a lot of figures.”

    I still have the Wrath of Kings stuff sitting in mint boxes at home, because we never got around to playing it… This new system from Wyrd looks neat, but so does Wrath of Kings at yet…
    I will say I find the the different factions a bit bland. Colonial British, somewhat Ghengis Khan style Asians, Fish people and Infernalists. It seems like there’s not a whole lot holding these images together, thematically. But then again, I’m only very cursorily aware of the Malifaux metaplot…
