Wyrd: The Other Side Preview

3 Minute Read
Dec 6 2016


It looks like things are about to get Wyrd – check out this new preview for The Other Side!

Wyrd games looks like they are upping the scale of the conflict that started with Malifaux and introducing some new toys with The Other Side…

A video for Wyrd’s upcoming Kickstarter, launching December 14, 2016.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Wyrd Universe, this video is a quick primer. If you’re familiar with Malifaux then you know that the game’s setting takes place in an alternate reality through the “Breach” – a portal between Earth and Malifaux. This game takes place on – wait for it – The Other Side of that breach…meaning it actually takes place on “Earth” and not in Malifaux. If you’re confused, watch the video and it will all make a lot more sense.

Anyhow, there are 4 factions (so far) that have surfaced to power (besides the Guild that controls pretty much everything). And each one of these factions is getting a HUGE model that fits on a 120mm base. And they look AWESOME.

The King’s Empire

They are a “shooty” faction who focused on black powder weapons technology. The King’s Hand is their big hitter and it looks pretty stunning.



Gibbering Hordes

They are very much a Melee-centric faction. They come from the Sea and Portals that have started to open. Their big hitter is the Alpa Crawler – a giant “Black Lagoon” looking monster from the deep!



These guys are an advanced tech faction. They apparently have access to soulstones and have learned how to harness them. The Dreadnought is their massive walker and it’s packing some heat!



Cult of the Burning Man

The followers of the Burning Man – these chaotic creatures are the stuff of nightmares. The Gorysche is their fantastical beast.



Now, we actually got a look at a couple of these models back at GenCon 2016. You may or may not remember them but here they are:

Wyrd Prototypes!

Wyrd Prototype 1

Wyrd Prototype 2

Again, these models are on 120mm bases! They are MASSIVE.


The Other Side is still a bit of a mystery. You can read more about the upcoming Kickstarter HERE. If you’re already a Malifaux fan, you’re going to want to keep an eye out for this one. If you’re not – well, those models are looking pretty stinking awesome so you may want to keep this one in mind!

Watch the video for even more sneak peaks at each faction. They have multiple units out for each faction and you’re seeing the plastics, not just 3D renders!


The Other Side – Kickstarter starts December 14, 2016. Are you ready to get Wyrd?
