Keep Calm and Take this Model

It can be hard to justify taking a model whose sole role is that of a support piece. Especially when, by and large, you want those points for things that bring a more direct impact to the game. But sometimes a subtler hand is needed, one that manipulates the field just by their very presence. For example, a model that brings a variety of control concepts that support and facilitate your crew’s efficiency.

Mr. Tannen is that model.

No other model in 10T or Neverborn aggressively affects the game in a support role like Tannen. From his signature ability Cooler to his utility tactical actions, Mr. Tannen is a fragile piece that (when properly protected) warps the game landscape so that the odds are ever in your favor.  Continue reading

Ways to Lose Less: Larry Mottola’s Top 5

Larry

Editor’s Note: Fresh from the podium of the 2018 Capital City Meltdown, Larry kicks off a new series at Third Floor Wars: Ways to Lose Less.  I had a bet with Larry based on the number of games I’d lose at CCM.  If I won the bet, Larry would write an article for us.  If he won, I’d paint a model for him.  Larry won the bet (shocker) but was kind enough to write the article anyway.  Like most of the top players in Malifaux, Larry is generous with his knowledge and lessons learned. There is gold in this article.  His insights on cheating and your control hand alone makes this a worthy read.  Enjoy!! Continue reading

Stop Forgetting This Model!

“Mighty Model Spotlight, Part 1”
by James Dator and Ray Flynn

The 7ss slot in Rezzers has gotten competitive: Goryo, Lampad, Shikome, Student of Viscera, Sebastian… Lots of good choices for a variety of situations.

But only one gets you another model upon death, increases threat ranges, increases damage dealing, and can just warp around the board every turn with wild abandon: Enter the Forgotten Marshall.

This guy is 7ss of versatile awesome. He is one of, if not the, best 7ss model in the faction and one of the more underrated models in the game. Let’s ignore the fact that he summons a 4-5ss minion upon death, his other stats and abilities are stellar; causing massive headaches for your opponent.
