Lecture Notes From the Breach: A Malifaux Podcast

Welcome to Lecture Notes From the Breach, a Malifaux Podcast!

Join our hosts Alex (aka TheGreatSerpent) and Joseph (aka Eldmor) as they shepherd new players Derek (aka ErgonomicCat) and Francesc (aka Flynnt) through the ins and outs of Malifaux!  Each episode features our students giving batreps for recent games, focusing on Crew and Scheme selections, followed by advice (and a bit of mocking) from our experienced Lecturers.

Whether you’re starting the game, starting competitive play, or just want to learn about new factions and gameplay (or send emails telling our Lecturers why they’re completely wrong!), we welcome you to the classroom!

We’d love it if you’d like and follow us on Soundcloud, follow us on Twitter at @BreachNotes and join our Facebook group! You can also check out the RSS feed.

Or, if you’re the iTunes sort – we’re there, too!

Our first episode is now available!  We discuss games from Derek (playing a Henchman Hardcore match with Candy) and Flynn (a 50ss game with Rasputina), talk about the new Divergent Paths event, and discuss one of the most underutilized but powerful actions in the game – Focusing!

Episode Two covers a tournament report from Alex (with deeply hidden tips on what to do when absolutely nothing from the Fate Deck will help you out). Also included are battle reports on wave one of Divergent Paths from Flynn, Derek, and Joseph.

Episode Three brings a batrep, a discussion which occasionally approaches ‘rant status’ on advice given to new players, and advice on some Masters you should and shouldn’t target if you’re “Building on a Budget”

Episode Four we talk with Flynnt about a game he had with Rasputina against the dreaded Pandora and we have a full breakdown of Gaining Grounds 2016.

Episode Five battle reports from Joseph and Alex! Advice on future purchases for Derek and Flynnt! So many plugs you’ll just have to listen! DON’T STOP ME; I’M NOT MAD, YOU ARE!

Episode Six, Flynnt plays Rasputina against Nicodem, the master summoner of the Resurrectionists! Alex and Derek meet minds and muscles in Toni Ironsides against Pandora! We also discuss the weapons of the Arcanists in Turf War / Extraction.

Episode Seven, Derek plays Rapid Growth against Brewmaster, Flynnt plays Rasputina against Ten Thunders, and we talk about how Neverborn play with Extraction / Turf War.

Episode Eight, Flynnt gets advice on his Black Friday order, Derek buys the rest of Neverborn, and we talk about playing Malifaux with more than two players!

Episode Nine, We talk about the nitty and gritty of the January 2017 Errata and Gaining Grounds 2017. This will be on the final exam!
