Wyrd Games Reveals New Kimon Faction Commander For The Other Side
Wyrd Games, the powerful wargaming and tabletop board game company responsible for bringing us Malifaux, Through the breach, and The other side, gave its playerbase another preview look at a model of the Kimon faction of The other side, their large-scale wargame set in the Malifaux universe. We’ll take a look!
The Takiyasha is the self-proclaimed “Oni Queen” of the realm of the Beyond, a place away from Earth or beyond the Breach. According to this article from Wyrd Games, published as part of their “Waldo’s Weekly” series, Takiyasha has long ruled the afterlife, a place the company describes as “desolate”. When the Amber Gate, a massive portal connecting the Afterlife and Earth, opened in front of Takiyasha, she set in motion plans to take dominion over the world on the other end of that portal.
Takiyasha’s stat card puts her firmly in the “board control” camp in that she moves models as she sees fit and can position herself in spaces otherwise crowded with non-Titan units. His Glory side allows him to buff units friendly to him and deal bonus damage via Piercing through his Massive Tetsubo’s new trigger.
The summoning options on Amber Gate, Takiyasha’s special asset card, are not yet clear to us, but it is assumed that we will know about these units when the time comes for Wyrd to release them to the public knowledge pool. . But the cool part about Amber Gate is how easily Kimon units flip to their Glory face, which is a big deal for most units in the game (Breachlings aside).
And of course, Wyrd Games did their fans the courtesy of sharing an image of the 3D render for Takiyasha in their post previewing it as well. Are you excited for this new faction to enter The other side? Let us know your thoughts and opinions on the Kimon Faction in the comments below!
