Wyrd: New Little Monsters for the Gibbering Hordes

This creepy crawler has toxic spines, and provides range on the tabletop.

The Crawlers are one of the most common members in the Gibbering Hordes, and they fall at the bottom of the food chain. Barbed Crawlers live in the shallows of Malifaux’s oceans, killing their prey using toxic barbs. On Earth they traverse both land and sea, searching for food and places to lay their eggs.

On the table, Barbed Crawlers are one of the Gibbering Hordes’ only ranged units. Barbed Crawlers serve as a cheap source of ranged attacks and, when needed, cannon fodder. Their barbs aren’t very dangerous, but the automatic application of Pinned Tokens can assist in whittling down enemy forces. When in Glory, their barbs gain a number of very useful Triggers that allow them to fill multiple battlefield roles.

    The idea of horrific creatures invading the deep through the intersection of dimensional angles…terrifies me. Where is Aquaman when you need him to talk to fish.

      Hmmm, but which is real… “gladiatorboy” or “marxlives” (XD)

      • marxlives

        Don’t know who gladiatorboy is, made a comment about how he copied my comment and how he is not me, but then that comment got removed. Wierd…or Wyrd right?

    I love it! This is for Malifaux?

      An Echo from the Otherside!

    Ugh I went back and forth on Cult and Hordes so much during the kickstarter campaign. I’m still not convinced I made the right decision.

    • ZeeLobby

      I ended up backing out… unfortunately… I just think it’d be a struggle to get my group to play. They’re already meh on malifaux, and this system is asking them to buy armies of stuff centered around it.

      • Txabi Etxebarrieta

        Yeah I feel that. I wouldn’t have if it weren’t pre-assembled. I want to see if reducing the most frustrating component of modeling for me will rekindle my interest in hobbying.

        • marxlives

          As get older, assembly not painting becomes the big hassle.

          • Txabi Etxebarrieta

            How I felt putting together my Infinity stuff. I got frustrated trying to reglue things over and over again. because I have clumsy fingers. The painting was fine.

          • marxlives

            Exactly, it feels like time robbed. I just like to paint them up and get them on the table and having them look good. This is probably why as wargamers get older they paint 20000th/mm scale games or paint up board game minis.

      • marxlives

        I see that, I backed it only because my friend who play Malifaux with me backed it. It is a bold move, Wyrd moving into large scale games, but it is going to be super niche. Best to just see how it does in your area and then jump on board later. Hate to say that but it is true.

        do you guys run “through the breach” RPG? There are lots of good models in here for that mess 😀

        • euansmith

          I just picked up random units for use in different games; but now I wish I’d got some of these cool Deep One wannabes.

          • Matthew Pomeroy

            i consider them more “shallow” ones 😀 but seriously i cant wait for this game 😀

    • marxlives

      It was the Otherside that inspired me to get the rest of Malifaux books. I really wanted to know who the heck the Burning Man was. Besides a concert in the middle of the desert.

    That critter looks pretty cool.

    • euansmith

      They don’t come up on infrared! 😉
