Malifaux: Nicodem vs. Lilith

Ryan and I played a 25 point game of Malifaux last night.  I was playing Nicodem, Mortimer, a Vulture, Bette Noir, and a Punk Zombie.  Ryan’s crew had Lilith, a Large Nephilim, the Cherub and Hans.

We rolled for strategies, and I ended up with Reconnoiter (secure table quarters) and Ryan got Assassinate.  We then deployed in opposing corners of the table.

We were pretty evenly matched for most of the game.  Hans was causing problems and shooting zombies, but Nico always had a group of zombies around himself as a shield.  I was able to get the Nephilim and Lilith down to one wound, but then Bette spent two activations completely whiffing at here and ended up dying after doing a lot of nothing.  On turn 5, the Nephilim was able to kill Mortimer, but couldn’t get to Nico.  Nico then proceeded to kill the Nephilim with a well executed Decay.  On the final turn, Lilith got into combat with Nico, but was unsuccessful.  Nico proceeded to finish off Lilith with a well placed Cane Strike and then managed a very luck draw to resurrect a second Punk Zombie, allowing me to claim three table quarters at the end of the game.

It was a very fun game, and we are starting to really get the hang of our crews and the game in general.  It was a very close game, but Nico just proved too resilient.  And I was able to get luck to turn my way at the end of the game, snatching the win.

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.
