A free Through the Breach RPG adventure (and quick rules) will be available in June to those spending $35 or more on Wyrd products.
Wyrd has a variety of media available for free to everyone.
  • Most Mondays we release a look at something upcoming in our Monday Preview. These are a great opportunity to see what Wyrd is working on and what's coming down the pipeline. We have a lot of things to show off, so check back every Monday!
  • Every Wednesday a new wallpaper is made available on our website for Wallpaper Wednesday. There is a large collection of Malifaux options available, as well as a variety of options for some of our other games.
  • Every other Wednesday we release a free podcast called the Tales of Malifaux. This podcast goes through the Malifaux fiction one story at a time, starting all the way back with the first book in first edition. It's a great way to catch up on our old stories or go through them again.
We have a variety of painting contests coming up this year, and we'd love it if you took part in all of them! These contests are a great way to test your skills, or just to give yourself a painting deadline.
Total Testosterone
Does your model have overwhelming muscles? The need for a big weapon? The underlying instinct to show off for the fairer sex? If the answer is yes, then your miniature is more than qualified for the Total Testosterone painting contest. To maintain a tight theme for this contest, your miniature must be male and a human (or humanoid type). Elf, human, dwarf, or cybernetically enhanced soldiers are all acceptable, so long as it’s packing a plethora of testosterone. Total Testosterone will be running from June 1st to the 30th.
Femme Fatale
The most dangerous women of the miniature world are ready to kick some ass. Just like with Total Testosterone, this contest has a tight theme. Your miniature must be female and a human (or humanoid type). Again, elf, human, dwarf, cybernetically enhanced soldiers all can fit the bill. Any weapon toting, spell wielding, powerful woman that can take your breath away, permanently, will do just fine! Femme Fatale will be running from July 1st to July 31st. Submissions will begin on July 1st, the last day of submissions will be July 21st.  Voting will be from July 24th – July 26th. We will announce winners on July 31st.

Creature Feature

Fangs, tails, claws, or wings - all of this helps qualify your model to be a star of the Creature Feature. The creatures of the world demand their time to shine! Your miniature must be distinctly NOT humanoid. This means animals, supernatural beasts, or anything that is clearly not humanoid. This does not include clearly humanoid monsters such as vampires, elves, dwarves, or cyborgs. Bring out your most fearsome beasts for this competition! Creature Feature will be running sometime in December or January. Details will follow in the coming months.
Unlike our monthly contests above, the Iron Painter is a multi-round online painting contest. It is a long, grueling competition where painters will be tasked with continuously producing a series of painted models within tight timelines. It is not a competition for the faint of heart (or brush).

2017 marks yet another year of Iron Painter, and this year we are making a few changes to ensure that Iron Painter continues to be the great hobby challenge that it is, while also allowing this to be a true community event. This year’s Iron Painter will run from August to December.

If you think you have what it takes to paint until your fingers bleed (OK, we don’t want your fingers to bleed, but a little bit of a red stain from painting could be appropriate), then you should sign up for this competition.

Keep in mind that this contest is designed for painters (and non-painters) to have fun. Although each round will have a winner, Iron Painter is as much about finishing every round as it is winning. It’s a chance for you to get motivated and paint your minis! As we will not be doing categories, keep in mind that historically dioramas may edge out single models even if the single model is of a better technical skill. Wow factor definitely plays into this contest!

More information on the Iron Painter and our monthly painting competitions can be found on our website.
We are really excited about what we have coming up this year, and it's always nice to be coming into convention season. If you are planning on coming to Origins, make sure to stop by our booth and say hi. If you're going to GenCon and feel like lending a helping hand, we have a variety of volunteer slots available!

Thanks for your support, and we look forward to hearing from you soon!.
