Ray Flynn and I have spent the last few weeks deciding how to handle the current situation with M2E and M3E. We are over a month into Season 1 and a few things are true:
- We are seeing a sharp decline in tournament activity across the country versus last year
- We want the first season and the first Masters event to be a success
- Our commitment to USFT and a US Masters is as strong now as it has ever been

We spend 20 minutes with the most recent winner out of the Central Conference. He took three different Guild masters to first place.

What schemes do you think each crew picked? Are there models they should of included considering the pool? Does a post-nerf academic have a chance against the fastest gun in Malifaux?
Editor’s note: Ray Flynn, co-founder of Third Floor Wars gives us the keys to an enjoyable first tournament. Many casual players are scared of entering their first event. Ray gives some great tips to lessen first-event anxiety.
I finally finished the base for Reva. I used one of the Wyrdscape Graveyard bases by Wyrd Games. Despite having a door that leads to nowhere, the base is well sculpted with excellent textures to play with. I used a contrast of browns and greens to make it pop while bringing the palette together.
