Gen Con 2018 Newsletter



Gen Con is near! We’ve been pretty busy gearing up for the best four days in gaming (August 2nd – 5th) and can’t wait to show you what we’ve got in store this year for the big event. If you’re making your way to Indianapolis this year, be sure to stop by our booth (Booth #1129)!

In this special edition newsletter, we’re covering all things Gen Con. You can find details on our Tyrant Tournament, our upcoming releases, and all of the awesome promotions we’ll have at the Indiana Convention Center below. 

We’re jumping off the top rope and bringing down an elbow drop of awesome onto this year’s Tyrant Tournament at Gen Con. That’s right; if you’re one of the lucky qualifying entrants, you’ve got a chance to win yourself a Malifaux 2018 Champion belt. While it might not keep your pants up, this beauty will definitely look great draped on your shoulder or hanging triumphantly above your minis collection. 

But there’s only one way to claim this prize: you gotta win. Make sure to bring your A-game so that you can rightfully claim that you’re the best (of who showed up)! 

We’ve got a bunch of promotions that we’re offering this year at Gen Con. You can find a list of our promos below:

  • Get a FREE He-kome model when you spend $100 or more (available in person and during online Gen Con sales).

  • Get a raffle ticket for a chance to win a Mansion when you purchase any 2 Edge of the Quarantine Zone Wyrdscape terrain boxes. The Mansion will be delivered to your provided address, at release (available in person and during online Gen Con sales – which will be automatically registered).
  • Play a demo of The Other Side for a chance to win a gift box from one of the Allegiances, delivered to you at release. 


  • Get a raffle ticket for each $50 you spend for a chance to win one of the many goodies we’ll have to offer at our raffle at the end of Gen Con!

Every year, we like to offer something special at Gen Con, and this year’s no different. While you might have already seen our preview of this year’s NightMARE Gremlin box, we’ve still got a lot more to get excited about. Above, you can catch a glimpse of one of our promotional offers exclusive to Gen Con: a He-kome, a male Shikome!

There is one little thing we’re doing differently this year. Like the color of the Burning Man’s flames, our schedule is shifting a bit. The next Malifaux book won’t be coming to Indianapolis. But don’t worry – the sky’s not falling. We’ve got some big plans for our friends across the Breach coming in the new year, and you’ll be able to hear about those plans soon.
