Starter Box Battles: Mother of Monsters vs Children of December

Starter Box Battles is a series of battle reports where we try to showcase either the starter box of a game, or a game played using only two basic faction boxes. So, for a seasonally correct Starter Box Battle, Ali and I decided to break out some Malifaux, and have a good old fashion game of Mother Nature verses the December Queen- Lilith against Rasputina.

WIP Wednesday: Malifaux Gremlins, and still working on that Alien!

Hello out there all you holiday partiers!

   Yes, it's the holidays over here at LXG, so we are not getting as much done as usual. We still wanted to drop a quick line to let you know what's in the works this week, though. We'd hate to start a weekly article, and miss week two! So here I am, Tuesday, prepping an article.

Do you want to fill out your zombie ranks for a photo shoot, but already have enough nice front line models? Then here are the zombies for you.

From Box to Table: Counterblast Mekkus Core Set

34000 - Counterblast Adventure Battle Game Mekkus  Faction Core SetOkay, so...why not just a regular unboxing article? To be perfectly honest, it's because GMort covers most of the same games we do, and his Unboxed series is just too good to try to follow. Seriously, go read them. On top of that, Johan also does an amazing job with unboxings on his blog as well. Instead, I wanted to take a slightly different track, and discuss models going literally from sprue to table ready. Today we're going to tackle the Mekkus faction from Bombshell Miniature's Counterblast game.

WIP Wednesday: Ta'an Arnts, Meka and Monkeys, and Railworkers

The incredibly talented and wonderful artist Meg Maples of Arcane Paintworks coined the phrase "WIP Wednesday" (as far as I know),  and I thought that was so wonderful that it needs to become a thing.  So, here's a few quick looks at our project tables at LXG Headquarters this week.

One More for the Cabinet! Berkeley, Zombie Hunter by Reaper Miniatures

   We weren't heavily into Kickstarter yet when the first Reaper Bones Kickstarter hit (but you can bet we have everything coming to us when Bones II arrives). Nevertheless, we have since acquired some nice pieces from the first set. I just finished one of them, so here she is for you to take a look at: Berkeley, Zombie Hunter by Reaper Miniatures. Hey, even a zombie master like me paints a survivor once in a while!

It's Contest Time! Choose your Favorite Campaign!

Hello everyone!  The writers of LXG all got together last night, and because we can't come up with a convincing idea, we're turning it into a contest.  Help us choose what to play, and maybe win some models while you're doing it!

Malifaux Battle Report: Mei Feng vs. Perdita

I know it might seem that I never actually play.  Most of our battle reports involve 2CE and his various opponents.  Mainly that is a product of the club primairly playing in his house. but today was different, I, Belgarath97, got in a game against Merek, with an added bonus that we both played with new crews we both had interest in.  For me it was Mei Feng, I'm really interested in her as a master so I can have another Arcanist option to go with Colette.  Merek used Perdita, which would be a complement to his Hoffman crew.  We got Standard deployment, with the Reckoning Strategy, and Power Ritual, Breakthrough, Vendetta, Line In the Sand, and Protect Territory Schemes.  I chose Vendetta and Protect Territory, and chose one of my Rail Workers to kill his Hunter for Vendetta.  Merek chose Power Ritual, which he revealed, and Protect Territory.

Box Review: Masters of the Path Box Set

Greetings, fellow Malifaux fans!

   When LXG hit Malifaux, we did it hard. Almost everyone in the club has two or three factions going , and there's plenty more we want. I think it's because they hit our weak spot- we love awesome models. And they have plenty. So, I guess we'd better get started with some model and faction reviews, and you can bet there are bunches of battle reports coming your way! Let's get started with my first box, the Masters of the Path box set.

Malifaux Battle Report: Yan Lo vs Rasputina, 65 Soul Stones!

So, as you can read in this article, Ali has finally finished her Yan Lo box, plus the extra models she really wanted to use thematically with it.  As a reward, she wanted to do something she never does and play a BIG GAME, using all her freshly painted pieces.  As it turns out, the only person with enough painted models to go up against a 65 soulstone force all with one theme was me.  So, we ditched the normal order of picking things, and settled right into going to town with Yan Lo vs. Rasputina!
