The wait is over. For you Malifaux players out there, you don't have to wait and see how things will be any longer. Wyrd has posted up the 3rd edition rulebook for Malifaux, as well as the stat cards, so you can get playing right away. I don't know about you, but I'm always really happy when that "limbo period" of "a new edition has been announced, but it's not released yet" is finally over.
From the announcement:
That’s right. You can download the Malifaux Third Edition Core Rules right now, for free, two days early. In the rulebook, you’ll find everything you need to know on how to play the game.
But that’s not all. We have also released our M3E Stat Cards early. What you’ll find on the site today are all of the Stat Cards that you would find in the Faction Packs, which includes all of the standard previously released Stat Cards from the last edition. This is a great way to start playing with the models you have right now!
If you’re looking for higher quality card stock, you will be able to find these cards on DriveThruRPG/WarGameVault next week. If you’re interested in writing on your cards, then your best bet is to scoop up the Faction Pack of your choice, as those cards will have that nice, glossy finish that will allow for dry erase markers to be wiped away without any smudging.
Any cards for future models will become available on our website in the very near future. When a new model is released, its Stat Card will become available during the same month. Because it’s June, the Stat Cards for Basse, Youko, and Burning Bridges are currently available. Come September, when all of the Faction Books are out in the wild, all Stat Cards for M3E will be available on our website for free, as well.
