Nick and Jeremy finally play a single-commander game of Wyrd Miniatures’ The Other Side. Abyssinia against The Cult of the Burning Man. We give our thoughts and discuss the good and bad of the game.

Pregaming: Hot Water Fix

Have pre-assembled miniatures (especially from all those Kickstarter boardgames) that are warped or bent and just plain ridiculous looking? Here is a quick tutorial using an electric kettle, a glass of cold water and a glass for hot water to straighten them out. Most of the time it is a miracle worker and will have your minis looking like they did coming out of their molds. Just don’t burn your fingers! Have a look and please give us any comments or questions based on your experience.

Video: Unboxing The Other Side

Absent our faithful expert in all things Malifaux, Nick, we unbox the Dual Commander pledge for Wyrd Miniatures’ The Other Side game. We chose The Cult of the Burning Man and Abyssinia as our two allegiances. Are the pre-assembled miniatures as good as Malifaux? What do you get in an allegiance box? Watch and find out!

Apologies in advance for the never quite in focus overhead camera.

Episode 198: Malifaux

We take a look at the world of Malifaux in its many incarnations including the miniatures skirmish game, the recently Kickstarted miniatures strategy game, The Other Side, and the RPG Through the Breach. Joining us is special guest Nick, the organizer of our local Malifaux group, gremlin lover and all around knowledgeable fellow regarding matters on both sides of the Breach. If you are new to Malifaux, this should give you a good taste of the setting and help you decide if now is the right time to make the leap. If you are already playing let us know in the comments which faction you play and what got you into the game. All responses will be reported to the local Guild office and any use of magic may be severely punished.
