What version of Malifaux?

At this time it's a bit confusing for a new player (such as myself) to deal with the different versions of Malifaux. Basically though the "new" version is being called the 2.0 version (or M2E) 2E means "second edition" I think. The game is undergoing the process of being changed from the 1.5 edition into the new 2.0 edition. This includes a new rulebook, as well as new "plastic" models. Most (but not all) of the 1.5 models are metal (known as white metal). Since the old models are being phased out, the chances of finding them at cheaper prices is good. Be warned that you don't want to spend good money on a model only to learn that a new (better looking) model is coming out over the course of the next few months into 2014.

Personally, I LOVE the new model sculpts and prefer them much more over the 1.5 versions. But that being said, not all of the models are out yet. So if it means spending $5-20 for the old versions so you can play with the models you like, then that's the way it goes. Just be sure to do your research first to see when (or if) the models you want are either out already, or will be available shortly.

While this does make things a bit more complicated for a new player, this is a great time to get into the game.

Tip: you can tell a new model is version 2.0 because the box will have the M2E logo on it.
