Gen Con 2018 Newsletter

*|MC:SUBJECT|**|MC_PREVIEW_TEXT|*

Wyrdos,

Gen Con is near! We’ve been pretty busy gearing up for the best four days in gaming (August 2nd – 5th) and can’t wait to show you what we’ve got in store this year for the big event. If you’re making your way to Indianapolis this year, be sure to stop by our booth (Booth #1129)!

In this special edition newsletter, we’re covering all things Gen Con. You can find details on our Tyrant Tournament, our upcoming releases, and all of the awesome promotions we’ll have at the Indiana Convention Center below. 

We’re jumping off the top rope and bringing down an elbow drop of awesome onto this year’s Tyrant Tournament at Gen Con. That’s right; if you’re one of the lucky qualifying entrants, you’ve got a chance to win yourself a Malifaux 2018 Champion belt. While it might not keep your pants up, this beauty will definitely look great draped on your shoulder or hanging triumphantly above your minis collection. 

But there’s only one way to claim this prize: you gotta win. Make sure to bring your A-game so that you can rightfully claim that you’re the best (of who showed up)! 

We’ve got a bunch of promotions that we’re offering this year at Gen Con. You can find a list of our promos below:

  • Get a FREE He-kome model when you spend $100 or more (available in person and during online Gen Con sales).

  • Get a raffle ticket for a chance to win a Mansion when you purchase any 2 Edge of the Quarantine Zone Wyrdscape terrain boxes. The Mansion will be delivered to your provided address, at release (available in person and during online Gen Con sales – which will be automatically registered).
  • Play a demo of The Other Side for a chance to win a gift box from one of the Allegiances, delivered to you at release. 

 

  • Get a raffle ticket for each $50 you spend for a chance to win one of the many goodies we’ll have to offer at our raffle at the end of Gen Con!

Every year, we like to offer something special at Gen Con, and this year’s no different. While you might have already seen our preview of this year’s NightMARE Gremlin box, we’ve still got a lot more to get excited about. Above, you can catch a glimpse of one of our promotional offers exclusive to Gen Con: a He-kome, a male Shikome!

There is one little thing we’re doing differently this year. Like the color of the Burning Man’s flames, our schedule is shifting a bit. The next Malifaux book won’t be coming to Indianapolis. But don’t worry – the sky’s not falling. We’ve got some big plans for our friends across the Breach coming in the new year, and you’ll be able to hear about those plans soon. 

Below you can find a list of the pre-releases we’ll have at Gen Con.

June 2018 Newsletter

*|MC:SUBJECT|**|MC_PREVIEW_TEXT|*

Wyrdos,

Like the Burning Man lingering over London, con season is upon us! We’re still winding down from the great time we had at Origins Game Fair 2018, and we couldn’t have done it without our volunteers. Thanks to everyone who helped out or stopped by our booth. Now it’s time for us to prepare for Gen Con at the beginning of August. We hope to see you there!

In this month’s newsletter, we’re covering June’s Chronicles issue, The Other Side’s release dates, our awesome Wyrdscapes, Through the Breach’s latest adventures, and our upcoming releases. 
 

The Burning Man beckons out to all that hear its call as Abyssinia rallies their troops for the looming invasion. The Gibbering Hordes are spilling out onto the streets while the King’s Empire prepares to defend their homes. The Other Side is near.

If you’re a backer, expect to receive your order of The Other Side this August! Don’t worry; if you didn’t get the chance to back the game, you’ll be able to get your hands on it shortly thereafter when The Other Side hits retail in October. 

We’ve teased them on our forums. We’ve given glimpses of them on social media. If you were at Origins, you might have even scooped up a pre-release box or two. But come Gen Con, our Wyrdscapes will be available to everyone! 

These fantastic terrain pieces are fully detailed inside and out. Build your own version of the Quarantine Zone with the Haunted Spires, Pathways, the Abandoned Store, Makeshift Defenses, and the Solarium. Make sure your gaming table looks and feels epic with Wyrdscapes.

We’ve got a lot of Through the Breach releases coming your way. This month, we released The Show Must Go On, a Penny Dreadful One-Shot, where the Fated must help Colette find one of her rising stars.

Our next Penny Dreadful, Northern Sedition, is just around the corner; the Fated will have to deal with the aftermath of a massacre in the much-anticipated sequel to Northern Aggression.

Soon, you’ll also be able to play as a Magewright, Propagandist, and more in Above the Law, a full expansion for Through the Breach that focuses on the Guild. 

Break on through to The Other Side. We just released our latest issue of Chronicles. This month, we decided to take a detailed look at our upcoming miniatures game. If you’re not familiar with The Other Side yet, here’s a great way to introduce yourself to the game. 

  • Comparing Malifaux & The Other Side: An in-depth look at the differences and similarities in our two miniatures games!
  • Storming Into the Breach – Starting the Other Side: Interested in The Other Side but don’t know which Allegiance to pick or what you want in your Company? Let’s give you a hand.
  • Little Star: A mother and daughter down on their luck as a mysterious light appears over London.
  • Painted Model Gallery: A close-up look of some of The Other Side’s fully painted models.
  • The Other Side – Battle Report: The Cult of the Burning Man and the King’s Empire duke it out in a play-by-play breakdown of The Other Side.
  • Lost at Sea – The Other Side Scenario:  An Abyssinian destroyer gets bombarded by an unknown enemy. Can you survive the Hordes?

You can find the latest issue of Chronicles for the low cost of FREE on DriveThruRPG!
