We tried Malifaux, but never got scenery to play with.
Thats a load of bull puck, We (being all the other Gisborne gamers) tried Malifaux and had a pretty good run at it, there is more than enough terrain in a perfectly playable state... ultimately most of the players play GW games so we ended up doing more of that. If I remember correctly I don't think you have played a game of Malifaux yet on account of never gluing a model to a base to come and have a game =] or are you still waiting for base inserts or, specialty superglue on 1 micron brushes?
You know gaming nights a mondays from 7:30, turn up with a crew =]
From what I have heard of the new 40k its basically making all the good things about 8th ed fantasy got into 6th ed 40k and thats a realy smart move on GW's part... There game system(s) are really getting well sorted now, they are actually getting more enjoyable to play despite the new sales pitch of "Big Kits" armies where buy working armies with good existing models get gimped to ensure you buy the correct $100 kits to un gimp them. Not to mention that on day one all the codex's for 40K got new Errata and FAQ's to make make them immediately usable.
