Malifaux Is Now At Impact Wargaming
Malifaux uses a mix of gothic steampunk, victorian horror with a dose of the wild west to inject fun and depth into the magical lawlessness of a world rife with monsters, man/machine hybrids, gunslingers, and nightmares.
Using character-driven stories to define the world of Malifaux, seek your fortune in this fast paced and brutal 32mm tabletop miniature skirmish game. No longer do you have to trust the fickle fate of a dice roll, in Malifaux you use cards (a Fate Deck) as you lead your Crew to victory with strategy, tactics and resource management, and if that isn't enough you can use your poker skills to Cheat Fate.
If you are looking for scalability Malifaux has it. Jump directly into a Scrap with 5 - 6 miniatures, ensuring a quick and brutal fight with each character having unique skills and abilities. Want to escalate it? Take it to a Brawl, bring in several additional members of your faction or hire mercenaries to do your dirty work.
The Guild tend to favor direct tactics over subterfuge.
The Neverborn are, in many ways, a faction of very fast, very fragile models which attack their enemies' Willpower almost as often as they attack their Defense.
The Outcasts are a collection of models that don't really fit anywhere else, and as a result, their playstyles tend to vary drastically from one Master to the next.
The Gremlins are a faction that revolves around swarm tactics and damaging themselves for various game benefits.
The Resurrectionists are a sturdy faction that relies on recursion and durability to carry it through a fight.
The Arcanists are a faction that revolves around the dual themes of magic and Constructs.
The Ten Thunders are a very diverse group of models - many of them hailing from a second faction - that don't really have any defining focus, other than their lack of focus.
