Brewmaster - The Best Bartender in Malifaux!

The second dual faction Master, The Brewmaster, unknown in Malifaux until he and his Tri Chi (in Greek letters it is XXX, why did I not notice this before?) Gremlins came over the mountains with Shine that exceeded even Somers. So powerful is his Shine that he could take over the Bayou if he was interested, but this doesn’t seem to be the case. What is he here for?

Moon Shinobi - The Drunken Gremlin Kung Fu is Strong

One thing about Brewmaster and his crew, they are not from the bayous of Malifaux. They come from over the mountains, and as such, they have an entirely different culture. They share the same love of Shine similar to the Gremlins in the Bayous, but they have translated this into a new form of combat, Drunken Gremlin Kung Fu.

Apprentice Wesley - As You Wish...

Wesley won the right to be called the Brewmaster's apprentice because he showed competence and his ability to drink all the other contestants under the table. In his free time, he brews his own, much harsher, concoctions biding his time until he becomes a Brewmaster in his own right.

Fingers - That Obnoxious Drunk at the Bar

Finger, a crafty Gremlin, babbles incessantly about nothing and pretends he doesn't understand what anyone else is saying. Basically he's that annoying drunk guy at the bar, babbling incessantly about nothing, or could be a blog writer trying to find an introduction, writing a bunch of words without really saying anything.

Pigapult - Raining Bacon!

The Pigapult, invention of the LaCroix to bring the Hedfield family to heel, is an interesting model. It needs fuel in the form of Piglets, Stuffed or alive, to perform at peak efficiency. Now is that a good thing or a bad thing? I’ll leave it for you to decide.

In honor of our upcoming Pig Frenzy I present this, give it a watch!

Well think I may start a tradition of sorts here in my little corner of the Swamp, funny songs. Let's start with this one...

In Depth With Ophelia - A Closer Look at this LaCroix

Ophelia LaCroix, the name that strikes fear and respect into the hearts of Gremlins everywhere. That she has become the leader of the most powerful Kin in Malifaux as a girl is even more amazing. It would be like if Marilyn Monroe took Joan of Arc’s place at the head of the French armies. Let’s take a closer look at this amazing Gremlin.

Beginning Zorida with Another Chris

Chris King, Podcaster, and highest ranked Gremlin player (as of this writing) in the UK has joined the Black Bayou to offer his insights as he learns and grows with our favorite Swamp Hag, Zorida. Be sure to keep up with all the antics at Chasing Bacon -Kris

The Young LaCroix - What Are They Good For?

Young LaCroix, yeah I did a little bit of a bash job on them earlier on but they can actually be useful paired with some other models. So here is why you take them...

Francois LaCroix – Don’t call him a Pig-Licka

Francois LaCroix is a success story of sorts, a meek Gremlin he transformed himself into the second most feared Kin alive.

Raphael LaCroix – The Gremlin Enforcer

Raphael LaCroix, a cantankerous Gremlin even by Gremlin standards, lives to crack heads. Think of the character Ajax from The Warriors. What you haven’t seen the Warriors? No, no, no, it’s okay, go look it up, I’ll wait.

Rami LaCroix – Bayou Recon Scout Sniper

Rami LaCroix is on the agenda today; let’s take a closer look at the range and firepower he can bring to a crew.

Pere Ravage – Psycho Arsonist

Pere Ravage has a very unhealthy fondness for fire. Trapped inside a burning shack, Pere survived with a serious psychosis. Now, Pere only wants to relieve the time he felt fully alive, trapped in a burning shack, waiting on death.

The Young LaCroix - Why I Keep Em In The Case

Okay so this is something new, these are models that I think are entirely disposable and why Ophelia can do her thing better without them. Feel free to disagree with anything written here.

The Best Laid Plans… My Journey into the Breach

I’m going to take a bit of a departure from talking about models and such and discuss my approach to Malifaux. There probably be some rambling and tangental rants but hey, it happens! Hope you enjoy...

Lenny - Of Pigs and Gremlins

Today we will peek at everyone’s favorite Gremlin, the resident Pig lover, Lenny himself. Again, scroll to the bottom of the first paragraph for the definitions of the bolded terms.
