Based in an alternate Earth, Malifaux uses gothic, steampunk, and victorian horror with a dose of the wild west to inject fun and depth into the magical lawlessness of a world rife with monsters, necropunks, man-machine hybrids, gunslingers, and powerhungry politicos. Actively using character-driven stories to define the world of Malifaux, seek your fortune in this fast paced and brutal 32mm tabletop miniature skirmish game. Assemble your crew and stake your claim!
Malifaux 2E completely updates the rules of the game, adding strategic depth, clarity, and choices. New stories, new factions, and new characters continue to pull you through the Breach and leave you battling for opportunity and survival in the dangerous world of Malifaux.
Malifaux has recently undergone an edition change from first to second edition. This was done to rebalance the models, make the rules more accessible to new players, and to bring new life to the game. We accomplished this rather large and important task through an open beta test. In this way, the Malifaux community got a chance to grow and shape the game that we all love.
Unfortunately, first edition stat cards are not compatible with second edition. To update your older models to the new edition, simply purchase an "Arsenal Deck." Arsenal Decks are decks of stat cards sorted by faction. Have the old Lady Justice cards? The new ones are in the Guild Arsenal Deck! If you are purchasing models from your local game store, be sure the box has the M2E sticker to indicate it has the second edition stat cards. Although, if it doesn't, that's fine so long as you get the appropriate Arsenal Deck.
Due to the sheer volume of models, we had to split the design of second edition into waves. Wave 1 consisted of all of the models from the original Malifaux book along with a few models from the Storm of Shadows book. Wave 1 was released in October of 2013 along with the second edition core rules. Beta testing for wave 2 just concluded, and official wave 2 stat cards can be downloaded now. Wave 2 included models from Rising Powers, Twisting Fates, and the rest of Storm of Shadows. If you're missing some of your favorite models in the wave 1 Arsenal Deck, be sure to check out Wave 2. Wave 2 will be released in Arsenal Deck form later this year.
Wave 3 testing is on hiatus at the moment and will restart after GenCon. Wave 3 will be comprised of the Avatar models! This will, once again, be an open beta test. So join us later in the year for a chance to help shape the future of Malifaux!
