More Malifaux News

Wyrd Miniatures confirmed with Malifaux and Warhammer Fantasy organiser Dan Miner that they are on board with providing prize support for the Malifood event.  This is great for the event as we are receiving direct support from the manufacturer.  Let's see if the others follow suit! :)

A new sponsor

After being introduced to Daryl Elms of KR Multicase by Carl Tuttle of The Independent Characters podcast (thank you, Carl - sixes be upon you brother), I'm very happy to announce that we have some major sponsorship and prize support for Malifaux, 40K and Fantasy.  AND not only that, a bonus prize which will be on display for the enture weekend and raffled off on the Sunday.

Read about KR's origins and their philosophy by going to their About Us page, and you'll hopefully see why  this product is a great storage and transport solution for your valuable models.

For the Malifaux players, we will be giving away a Kaiser 1 case, which holds the MFX-3 layout - that's 16-24 H2/H3 figures and 54 H1/H2 figures.  Aside from that, we will have available an Aquilla 4 case, which is more in the briefcase style and holds the MFX-6 layout which is 8-12 H2/H3 figures and 38 H1/H2 figures

On the 40K side, there will be another two great cases for grabs!
This is huge.  Backpack 1 will contain the SM-D layout.  That's enough foam to hold 1x Landraider, 1x Rhino/Razorback/Whirlwind, 1x Predator, 3x Dreadnought/Speeder, 18 Terminators, 25 troops.  That's at LEAST a 2000 point army in your case. 

The other prize for the 40K players is a standard Aluminum case, with the IG-B layout.  That foam layout holds a Valkyrie, its flight stand, 4 Chimera or Russ chassis (with removable turrets) and twenty troops.  A really nice case to protect your list. 

The Fantasy players can win the following. Again - HUGE.
Backpack 1 again, but containing the V7S loadout which is designed to hold a large monster and 54 troops. 
Also available will be the standard Aluminim case, with the V9S-N loadout.  That is designed to safely carry medium monsters and 80 troops. 

The big raffle prize is MASSIVE.  It's KR's Double Aluminim case, with enough foam to hold your vehicles plus 196 TROOPS. That is a very very cool prize. There are also two full accessory cases there in the raffle

Obviously we're all blown away by Daryl's support and generosity.  The cases will be available for display and there will be product catalogues for those interested to take away and learn more about this great product. The advantage that KR has over other foam manufacturers is that the foam has some give so you don't run the risk of paint rubbing off from moving models in and out - and there's enough of that give that you can get some of those odd shaped ones in without trouble.  The hard cases are there to protect the foam so it really is a double whammy or protection for the miniatures which you spend so many hours and dollars on.

They have a facility in the UK, and one in the US.  All of the prices include shipping - you can just click, pay and it's dispatched the next day. 

Their website is reachable by clicking the logo above.  

Remember, KR Multicase offers soft foam to protect your miniatures, and hard cases to protect the soft foam.

A Malifaux update, and some Adepticon related news.


Dan Miner, the organiser, chef, cook and bottle washer for Malifood has started a Facebook page for the event, so that he can easily contact the participants.  You can find that page by clicking this link.

You can view a list of participants by clicking THIS link. Please note that your spot isn't cemented until you have paid, so please make arrangements to do that.  You can see Chris Jones or Dan Miner to make payment. You can also use the PayPal link on the right hand side of the page.  Not only that, you can pay in person at GameStars!


I had a great time at Adepticon, and I'm already trying to find a way to get back next year.  I met some REALLY great people and I had some really good conversations with some vendors and manufacturers about the possibility of obtaining some prize support from them.

The first to hand over swag was Forgeworld.  The whole Forgeworld crew was very supportive of the event and send us happy thoughts for every success.  Then Big Steve called me over and handed me a copy of Imperial Armour volumes 9 and 10.  We have a complete edition of THE BADAB WAR to give away.  We're not sure how we'll do it yet but we'll make you guys work to earn it that's for sure.

The other vendors - you know who you are! Let's see what you can do to top that great donation.  Big thanks go to the Forgeworld crew, your generosity blew me away.  Thank you so much.

I met with Carl, Geoff and Zach of The Independent Characters podcast, and they were supportive of the event and Carl helped me out with a contact for possible support too.

Joe, the Evil Level Nine Boss over at the Screaming Heretic podcast was most generous in giving some of his time for an interview.  I babbled away like a very excited Englishman and tried to cram as much information in as I could.  You will be able to hear the interview on Episode 25, which will drop in a couple of weeks time. Thanks Joe! :-)
