In a completely unrelated matter, I also played against Chris King in Malifaux on Vassal. For those of you who don't know, he is @lemonconstruct on twitter and is one of the hosts of 'Chasing Bacon' (he is the one who sounds like he is about 12, this is a good way to see if he actually reads the blog ;) ). For this game it was some Gremlin on Gremlin action, or more accurately, a re-enactment of the Bayou food cycle, Pig on Gremlin action. It was a really fun game of much silliness and despite winning, I was most pleased about seeing Ulix, the gremlin pig master, in action.
I have always been a fan of the pigs in Gremlins, it was a major contributing factor on why I started with the Gremlins. Ulix, being the master of pigs, seems an obvious choice. This is further emphasized when I found out 'Old Major' is a henchpig and thus I could field a crew made entirely of pigs. The only thing holding me back is the lack of models.
This being said, I am becoming more and more interested in Proxies. I have found that the Malifaux community in the UK has had no problems with Proxies, so I have not much to fear there. Also, it enables people to truly make some individual crews. Joel Henry's Goldilocks crew is a fantastic example (see the picture in my Heartfaux report). There are also some fantastic miniatures that do not have a rules set to go with them, the guild of harmony figures immediately spring to mind, and it would be a shame not to put such things to use.
So on this note, I thought I'd provide some links to some Gremlins that people have come up with on twitter for various Gremlins. If people don't think they would like to play against them, I'd really appreciate you shouting out. First off, the model I am most excited about, Old Major.
Next up, one of the models who I think will be the most useful for rules in game, is Trixxiebell.
This next one is really on the table because the model is really cool and works very well, it's Mah Tucket.
Worhamma tonight to get some games in with my Gremlins. Depending on how well it goes, I might talk about it tomorrow. Have a good day.
