Wyrd Previews Characters In Bayou Bash

This is almost a 2-for-1 preview from Wyrd this week. We get a look at the characters coming in their upcoming racing game, Bayou Bash. But those figures will also be available to use in Malifaux. We get a look at how they'll work in both in this article.

From the article:

Hey Wyrdos,

Last week, we revealed the release window for our highly anticipated beat’em up racing game, Bayou Bash (for those who missed it – it’s June of this year! Really!).

As many of you might have noticed in last week’s announcement, Bayou Bash now has custom meeples to represent the racers in the game instead of miniatures, which we’ve shown off in the past at conventions.

At its heart, Bayou Bash is a light and chaotic racing game that takes about an hour to play. Players will bash their opponents (and their fans!) onto rocks, into pools of water, and off the track. Because of the physicality, speed, and lightheartedness of the game, we wanted to make sure that players of all types could enjoy the game without having to pay for the extra cost of miniatures.

But what if you really want those miniatures? Well, today, we have some exciting news!

The Malifaux Bayou Starter Box will come with the 4 characters from the Bayou Bash board game, and will be compatible with both Malifaux and Bayou Bash! In addition to the miniatures and stat cards, the Bayou Starter will also come with its own Bayou-themed Fate Deck and measuring widget.
