Since discovering the wonders of Vassal for playing miniature games online, I have really gotten excited about Malifaux again. And with Gencon coming up in less than two weeks, where Wyrd traditionally unveils a host of new models and some limited edition ones, it seems like a great time to be involved! This spurred me to continue to assemble and expand my primary faction: the Guild. While not as flashy and esoteric as many of the other factions in the Malifaux range, the Guild are grounded a little more in reality, with a heavy Western theme: long coats, cowboy hats, bandanas, and single-action revolvers. With one part Clint Eastwood, another part McCarthy’s Blood Meridian, and a lunatic touch of Kouta Hirano's Hellsing, Malifaux’s Guild have a very distinctive style themselves. Nowhere is this more evident than in their Marshals, which are what drew me to the Guild in the first place.
