So, of the malifaux range, its the weird models I like most. Insidious Madness, Doppelganger, Coppelius.

Which Master fits that selection (if any?) that I should read up on? As far as the Avatars, I like Pandora's as it seems to fit with the weird tentacle thing going on with Madness/Coppelius, and the Pandora Alt sculpt seems to be ok in terms of Detail (wish the Dreamer had an alt sculpt...)

So am I on the right track here or am I just too much of a noob and need to learn the game. :p

Many Tournaments or Campaigns will only require you stick to one Faction, with different Soul Stone totals each round..... you are then allowed to pick which Master best suits your opponents faction..... so in essence you will need all the Neverborn Masters to best deal with all of your opponents.


sorry that was a bit off topic, since i'm not really familiar enough with the specific powers of the masters to make a real informed decision.....
what I've heard is;

Pandora flips the game arround and forces your opponent to not play malefaux but play Pandora....

Dreamer is wiley and aggressive

Zereda has Obey, which her totem can also use, and tripple the use of one of your abilities, or use your opponents against themselves.

Lilith is a Beast in CC, not sure if the pairing with the Nefelim is just cuz of the box of if they really have any sinergy.

hope that helps a little.

Neverborn are, by and large, considered the best faction. Their "worst" master (i.e. Lilith) is still really, really good.

What you described, model-wise, would be a Pandora list. Copellius, IM and the Doppelganger all play to her strengths and Copellius even helps mitigate her weaknesses. Additionally, she can take the twins (Lelitu and Lelu) which are some of the best units in the game.

As for the tournaments, there are four formats:

  • Open Faction: At the start of every round of the tournament, you choose your faction. Master choice is standard.
  • Single Faction: At the start of the tournament, you choose a faction. Master choice is standard.
  • Limited Faction Pool: At the start of the tournament, you choose a faction and a list of models worth 20 SS more than the tournament level that you may draw upon in your list building each round. Master choice is standard.
  • Fixed Crews: At the start of the tournament, you choose x number of pre-made lists (which can be Open or Single Faction, depending on tourney). A pre-made Crew cannot be used twice in a row until all other pre-made Crews have been used.
