Wyrd Previews Newsies

As a reporter, myself, seeing the artwork for the Newsies makes me happy. Spreading the word about what’s going on in the world is important. And these little tykes are letting us know all about it.
However, while the Newsies might be letting you know what’s up, Wyrd is being more tight-lipped about them and what they’ll be used for.

Wyrd Previews Hucksters For Malifaux

There are the people out there that can get things for you. You know the type. They’re the ones that always have just what you need. They’re the hucksters, and they’re coming to Malifaux. They’re featured today in Wyrd’s regular Monday Preview, making your Mondays just a little bit better.

Wyrd May Newsletter Posted

Ok, so it’s actually the first day of June, but Wyrd had this up yesterday afternoon, so it was still May when it hit. Squeaking in just over the line, though. But better late than never, as this issue is filled with all sorts of information about Malifaux releases, Darkness Comes Rattling expansions, and The Other Side stuff, plus more.

Wyrd Previews The Sharpshooter For The Other Side

So, I don’t know what it’s like to be killed by a hitman. So I don’t know what it’s like just before you die. But I am going to assume it’s a lot like when you realize a mariachi band is about to play on the train.
My apologies to John Mulaney for butchering that bit.
But we also have a look at a new miniature for The Other Side, the upcoming minis game from Wyrd. This week, they make our Friday better by giving us a look at the Sharpshooter.

Wyrd Previews Horomontangi For The Other Side

As is their tradition, Wyrd has posted up their Friday preview for The Other Side. I’m always happy to see them, 1) because I like previews and 2) it means it’s Friday. Well, this one, when it popped up, I was like, “whoah!” because it’s a giant lizard/dragon thing named Horomontangi. Fridays need more giant lizard/dragons.

Do you think you have what it takes to work with one of the leading miniatures games out on the market? If so, get your resume together and apply now.

Wyrd Posts Monday Preview

It’s another Mystery Monday preview for us from Wyrd. Though last time it could be surmised that it was from their upcoming racing game, this one doesn’t really look like that’s the case. As usual, I won’t let my own speculation get in the place of actually reporting on facts, so I’ll just show you the picture and you can guess as to what it’s for.

Wyrd Posts Marauder Preview

You know, most of the stuff for The Other Side has a sort of steampunk/old-timey look to it. Basically a Victorian-era aesthetic. Today’s preview looks much more futuristic than that. As always on Fridays, Wyrd makes them that much better with their The Other Side preview. In this case, we get a look at the Marauder.

Wyrd’s April Newsletter Posted

When you want to keep up with what a company’s doing, it’s helpful if they have some sort of concentrated place where you can find all such info. A newsletter’s a good place to start, and Wyrd does one monthly. Their April one is up now, and you can check out what releases they’ve got in store for Malifaux, as well as some news about War of the Spirits, and Through the Breach.

Wyrd Posts War of the Spirits Preview

Wyrd loves to make Mondays better with a look at something they’ve been working on. In this case, it’s a new expansion for Darkness Comes Rattling. It’s called War of the Spirits, and we get a quick look at some artwork for the game as well as a little background on those being shown.

Wyrd Posts New Monday Preview

Wyrd likes to brighten up our Mondays with their regular preview. Today is no different. Thing is, they aren’t entirely sure what it’s a preview for. Or, at the very least, that’s the story they’re giving us. I mean, it’s a goblin on a recliner that’s also on top of an alligator. So there’s that. And here’s this…

Wyrd Previews Motor Scout For The Other Side

In combat, knowing the location and strength of the enemy is vital. Scouts have been used for thousands of years to find out just that sort of information. While that spot had been held by horse-riding cavalrymen for the longest time, in the motor age, it’s being taken over by vehicles specifically designed for the job. Such is the case with the Motor Scout in The Other Side, of which we get a preview here today.

Wyrd Launches Creature Feature Painting Contest

In the miniatures world, there’s a lot of human and humanoid models. You know, two arms, two legs, a head, normally with some form of armor. *yawn* How droll. What Wyrd’s wanting to showcase in their latest painting contest is all of the weird and wild creatures out there. They’ve launched their Creature Feature painting contest.

Wyrd Previews The Obsidian Gate

Wyrd is kind enough to make your Mondays just a bit better by regularly having previews up on their site. In this case, they’re giving us a look inside a new Penny Dreadful adventure they’ve been working on for Through the Breach. It’s called The Obsidian Gate.
Continue reading

Wyrd Previews Egg Clutch For The Other Side

Tomorrow, I’m going to be boiling up several dozen eggs to eat mostly on the following day. I’m not only cooking the eggs because it’s tradition, but because I don’t like the flavor of raw egg, and it’s not very safe to eat that way. I mean, looking at the preview for The Other Side we’ve got today, I might just make double-sure they’re done. Check out the Egg Clutch.

Wyrd’s Easter Sale Happening Now

A holiday’s coming up, and that means Wyrd’s rolling out the special holiday sale stuff, as they always do. I love seeing all the alternate minis that they come up with. They’re a great way to inject some special flavor into your force. And this sale is no different, as there’s several new alt. sculpts, plus some regular stuff just on sale. Go check it out.

Wyrd Previews Fire Golem

I’m sure that in a couple months, I’m going to be saying, “damn, I wish it was colder!” This is Atlanta, after all. But at least today, it’s cold and blustery outside. I wouldn’t mind a Fire Golem around to warm my hands up near (and maybe make some s’mores). But you don’t actually get it, you only get the preview of it from the upcoming Backdraft Story Encounter box.
Continue reading

Wyrd Previews The Engineer For The Other Side

Without Engineers, stuff wouldn’t get built. They’re the ones that get the plans together, figure out how things are supposed to work, and make sure that happens. The same happens in The Other Side, the upcoming minis game from Wyrd. Armies there have Engineers, too, and for their Friday preview, we get a look at the Abyssinian Engineer.
Continue reading

Wyrd Previews Fitzsimmons And His Saboteurs

Fitzsimmons and his Saboteurs sounds like a hipster punk band.
I mean, doesn’t it? Can’t you just see them up on stage? Top hats and bowlers with giant safety pins in them? Overcoats with patches all over them? Monocle with a spiked chain?
Anyway, they’re what we get a look at in today’s Monday Preview from Wyrd as they delve back in to the Backdraft Encounter Box.
Continue reading

Wyrd Previews Immolated Rhino For The Other Side

If you were to think of a rhino that would belong to the Cult of the Burning Man, you would probably think that said rhino would be on fire or somesuch. Makes perfect sense. That kinda seems like that’s what they’re getting. In today’s The Other Side preview from Wyrd, we get a look at the Immolated Rhino.

Wyrd Previews Popcorn Turner & Cooper Jones

Wyrd’s Monday previews help bring a bit of light into an otherwise dark day. This Monday is no different. The preview is a double, getting a look at Popcorn Turner and Cooper Jones from the upcoming Backdraft Encounter Box.
Man, now I want popcorn.

Wyrd Previews Devouring Eel For The Other Side

Today for lunch, they brought in Moe’s. As it was free food, we all kinda dove onto it and went to town like mad. You’d think we’d not eaten in years! I think we were all Devouring Eels. Good thing that’s what we get a preview of here in Wyrd’s regular look at the upcoming The Other Side miniatures game.
Continue reading

Wyrd Monday Preview Posted

It’s a dude’s face in a flaming wheel.
I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with it. It’s just, what did that initial art request look like? I’d kinda like to see that.
Anyway, Wyrd finishes up their look at the Undying encounter box with a look at the Wanyudo.
Continue reading

Wyrd Friday Preview Posted

Fridays are always made better by Wyrd’s previews for The Other Side. Today’s no different. Today, it’s a look at the Mechanized Infantry for the Abyssinian forces. They’ve got cool machine guns, and the ability to pilot a mech, should its current driver be neutralized. Have yourself a look.
