About the Post

Author Information

One of Raine's biggest hobbies has always been gaming. It all started with an Atari and spread out to Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic: the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. As an artist, Raine takes pride in painting models for games as well as making his own terrain. He's also been a writer for many years, working both in the journalism industry and writing pieces of fiction. He decided to create Initiative : Tabletop as a platform to talk about all things gaming that he simply thought were cool, and reviewing games became a part of it!

Wyrd Games May New and Upcoming Releases


The May newsletter from Wyrd Games has just gone out, and it details both the currently-available and upcoming models for Malifaux. We’ve recently picked up Malifaux and started playing this great miniatures skirmish game. It’s a game that uses a deck of playing cards in lieu of dice, allowing players to “cheat fate” by playing cards from their hands to affect the outcomes of different duels within the games. The newsletter points out all of the newest models that are now available as well as a list of upcoming releases that players can look forward to.

Additionally we’ve learned about a special model – Johana – that will be available via retail. This model is comparable to her male counterpart – Johan – and she’s an exclusive model from Wyrd to thank the community for all they’ve done through beta testing and more. She will be included in some box sets as well as on her own for purchase.

First up, here’s what’s now available for the game:

  • WYR20110 – The Lone Marshal – $35.00
  • WYR20214 – Flesh Constuct with Victim – $15.00
  • WYR20411 – Teddy – $18.00
  • WYR20514 – Killjoy – $18.00
  • WYR20706 – Fuhatsu – $30.00
  • WYR20707 – Monks of Low River (3 Pack) – $21.00

Now let’s take a look at what’s coming up soon for the game:

  • WYR20601 – Som’er Box Set, The Bayou Boss – $45.00
  • WYR20109 – Governor’s Proxy – $11.00
  • WYR20205 – Punk Zombie (3) – $21.00

I’m really excited for Malifaux this month because it marks the release of the first Second Edition box set for the Gremlins! Som’er Teeth Jones will be bringing his crew to the battlefield later this month to show the might of the Gremlin family at large. The rest of the upcoming releases will be some new models, others moving over to plastic from metal. Take a look below at some photos of what’s coming and tell us, what are you most excited about?
