25ss Lady Justice vs. Viktorias

As promised earlier in the week, here is the short report of my wife and my game of Malifaux from last Friday.

She was playing her Viktorias, with two Ronin, Taelor and 7 soulstones.  I have Lady Justice, the Judge, a Death Marshal, two Guild Guard, an Austringer and 5 stones.  Since we were a bit rusty on the rules, we just played with a single shared goal of Plant Evidence.

First turn, shortly after deployment.

The first turn wasn’t too exciting, with everyone just moving up to get into position.

Start of Turn 2

I won the initiative on the second turn and rushed Lady J up to plant evidence on the center bush.  She then felt the full force of the Viktorias and was taken down to 1 wound by them and Taelor.

On turn 3, I won the initiative again, and Lady J went on a spree, taking out the Sword Viktoria.  The Judge came in to help, but nothing could save Lady J.

I was able to get a Guild Guard over onto her half of the board to start planting more evidence, while my Death Marshal took out one of the Ronin on my side of the board.  The other Ronin, and the gun Viktoria were able to plant two pieces on my half, but in the end I was able to get one more with my Guard to seal the victory 3-2 in favor of the Guild.

Overall it was a fun game, though we were both a bit rusty.  The additional terrain helped both sides get into combat a bit more easily though I did forget that the Austringer ignores terrain with his Raptor.  I’m still trying to wrap my head around the interactions and combos of Malifaux, so there is a lot of the game that I haven’t taken advantage of yet.

Weekend Update

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend!

My wife and I took advantage of a Black Friday “Buy 2, Get 1” sale and picked up the Rasputina box, the Sonia Criid box and the Rising Powers book for Malifaux.  We then both did a bit of painting over the weekend.  My wife started painting her Victorias crew with one of the Victorias.  I painted up Rasputina’s Ice Golem and started working on the Witchling Stalkers.

Malifaux Battle Report: Nicoderm vs. Viktorias

My wife and I played only our second game last night. She was playing her Outcasts (Viktorias, 2 Ronin and Taelor) and I was playing my Resurrectionists (Nicoderm, Mortimer, 2 Punk Zombies). The table was 3’x3′ with three small buildings on the left, a group of trees in the near right corner and hills surrounding the area. The center of the board was relatively clear of obstructions.

The Outcasts deployed in the far left corner behind the buildings, and I deployed in the trees. Outcasts were going for Reconnoiter and I was going for a slaughter.

The first couple turns consisted of everyone moving forward, my zombies raced forward to get into combat, while Nico and Mort hung back and tried to generate some zombies with no luck. The gun-Vik moved straight at me with a Ronin, while the other Vik, Ronin and Taelor made a flanking move around the buildings to my left.

I was unable to get my Zombies into combat before the gun-Vik got to them, so my Punks were dead quickly and then Nico was surrounded. He was able to kill the gun-Vik with Decay, and get some Mindless Zombies, but by then it was too late.

At the end all, of the Resurrectionists were wiped out and the Viks were able to secure three of the four table quarters for the win.
