Ten Thunders

Oiran.jpeg Ten Thunders - Oiran (3)
Not every battle is won with blood and sweat. Many battles are won through information, coercion, and deception. The Oiran excel at these arts. Seemingly harmless escorts, these women have infiltrated Malifaux for the Ten Thunders, feeding information to their masters to allow them to strike when the time is right. Of course, if pressed into a fight, they are far from helpless, thanks to their poisons and concealed weapons.

Oiran are mercenaries, meaning they can be taken by any faction. They boost the Wp of nearby friendly models, and they can give enemies the Unbeknownst Condition, which prevents them from targeting Showgirls (making Oiran a strong choice for Colette, even though she is not Ten Thunders). They can also “Lure” enemy models out of position, which is a great way to get them off of a key objective.

This box includes 3 models and 3 stat-cards for "Oiran".

Komainu.jpg Ten Thunders - Komainu
Many important buildings are guarded by a pair of stone or metal creatures that look like a cross between a lion and a dog. These are Komainu, and the temple’s guardian spirits can inhabit them in times of need. Komainu are fearsome opponents, and it is said their bite rends both flesh and soul.

Komainu are excellent foot soldiers; midrange models with decent attack and defense. Their Armor and “Hard to Kill” defensive abilities combine to make them difficult models to put down. A Komainu’s Rend the Soul melee attack targets Wp, which makes it a good choice if the opposing crew has high Df. It has some very useful Triggers that it can use automatically if an Ancestor is nearby, making it a good model for Yan Lo. Finally, it can push into base contact with an enemy as a free action, and its abilities make using Ca actions near it a dangerous prospect. Komainu work well in any list, but they are great counters against certain enemies.

This box includes 2 models and 2 stat-cards for "Komainu".

TheThunder.jpeg Ten Thunders - The Thunder
Misaki’s box comes with six models, including Misaki herself. The fearsome Ototo is her henchman, and his massive tetsubo means a sudden end her his lady’s enemies. The mystical Shang bounds along behind Misaki as she backflips into combat, healing her even as it brings her crew good fortune. Rounding out the crew are the Torakage, trained assassins who are as quick and deadly as one would expect of any ninja.


Ototo has always been strong, and combining that brute strength with proper training made Ototo one of the Oyabun’s most trusted servants. Upon coming to Malifaux, Ototo realized he could control the thunder itself. He has since donned a mask and discarded his given name in favor of Ototo. Now, he is a faceless servant, the visage of everything the Ten Thunders are capable of.

Ototo is a large melee model. His Massive Tetsubo’s attack has a 3” range, allowing him to lock down multiple enemies in combat. He also has “Hard to Kill” and the “Enrage” ability, which combo nicely together. Finally, he has “Laugh Off,” which prevents enemies from moving him. Ototo can simultaneously hold a location and pummel enemies, leaving other models free for different tasks. Who doesn’t want an enraged maniac on their side who laughs at the enemy as he wields a Massive Tetsubo?


As a child, Misaki lived in her father's shadow. It wasn't until he decided that she would be part of their first wave infiltrating Malifaux that she was able to come into her own. Already skilled at martial arts, her ability was increased greatly during the passage through the Breach, allowing her to defend herself with ease. Having entered under the guise of a Guild lifer, it was not easy to earn the respect needed to manage the Ten Thunders' affairs. Under her tutelage, those under her charge have become an elite team of fighters, working well in small groups and often able to overcome poor odds.

Misaki earned her father's respect and he granted her the title of First Lieutenant, giving her the power to act in his name as Oyabun. Misaki is constantly torn between doing things her own way and honoring her father and her family, between using the knowledge she has learned about Malifaux and obeying her leader's wishes. This conflict often brings father and daughter to disagree, though it is the elder's decisions which are typically carried out.

Her weapon of choice is the Bisento, a bladed polearm, which she manipulates smoothly despite its size. She is a master at keeping an opponent at arm’s length, and few can match her control over close combat.


Misaki has been seeing Shang since she was a child. Nothing but fiery glimpses here and there... until she came to Malifaux. Once she crossed the breach, the nine-tailed fire fox revealed itself fully to her. Now it follows her, protecting or healing her where necessary.

Shang is Misaki’s totem, and it may only be taken in crews led by Misaki. It has “Rush of Magic,” allowing its controller to draw an extra card during the draw phase and then discard a card. This means that, so long as Shang is on the table, its controller will likely have a better hand. In addition to that, Shang can heal Misaki, which helps significantly as she is usually up front and in the action.


In days past, strict codes of honor kept the powerful families of the Three Kingdoms from open warfare. Instead, they turned to the silent, faceless tactics of the masked Torakage, who killed without a trace. Although the rich families of Earth have little use for Torakage presently, the Oyabun gladly employs them on the streets of Malifaux, where they strike like tigers from the darkness.

Torakage are highly mobile models with a good stat line. Enemy models suffer a negative flip when shooting at them if the Torakage is close to another model, and they gain a positive to attack in melee if they are alone; this allows them to move up field as a group and then split up to fight. They have “Rapid Fire,” and their shooting attack can automatically Trigger “Leaf Steps,” which Pushes them up to 3” with each shot. At least one Torakage is always a great choice to grab an objective or two.

This box includes 6 models and stat cards for: "Ototo", "Misaki", "Shang", and 3 "Torakage".

Also included are 6 upgrade cards: "Cutpurse", "Untouchable", "Stalking Bisento", "Disguise", "Call the Thunder", and "Smoke and Shadows".
