Hello all😁! I am a returning Rezzer player and I need a pick me up.
i started playing Rezzers in 1st edition and have been playing them primarily since with a fair smattering of breaks here and there. I fell off right around book 4. I did pick up most of the models however. Book 5 on the other hand has (although owned) remained mostly unopened. Upon recently getting stuck in again (played 2 games yesterday) i am realizing that I can’t seem to recall much of the synergies of the faction.
i played against guild who threw fees out left and right. And then a neverborn list completely themed around collodi’s synergy’s.
so I guess really... TLDR: what cool gimmicks do rezzers have these days outside of poison? What cool combos do we have? Not looking for “gotcha” moments on my opponents. I just want to know what to throw on the table outside of book 1 staples.
sorry for the long winded post I just want to love my dead again before I Think about starting another hobby project.
Thanks and Happy Haunting!
If this is necromancy, I am most sorry. I hope a year has not quashed this very interesting idea. Do you have any updates?
I associate the Fae of this world with hunting in my mind too, likely by way of elf-shot and the greenwood-- ''we dare not go a-hunting for fear of little men'' and partly from dim memories of a book -- I think by Terry Pratchett -- in which the elves hunt men (read in my aunt's library nearly fifteen years ago -- Lords and Ladies?).
P.S. -- This really ought not to detract from Masquer's work, but I include my own thoughts on Lucius and hunting: perhaps someone would be interested?
I confess if I imagine Lucius as a huntsman, it would be either on horseback in the scarlet coat, top-hat and white breeches of the Quorn and Pytchley Hunt (a deliberate abuse of language, the two are entirely separate, but a slight modification for the world of Malifaux) or, if on foot, the green coat, white breeches, green stockings and coloured collar of a good beagling pack -- you can get good pictures of the rather different brown velvet of the Eton beagles on the internet, also of the collar-flashes of other packs) -- a bob-wig akin to a barrister's and a crop in one hand with a scarred whipper-in and a brace of Guild Hounds to hunt down his quarry.
In the faery case the predominant colour ought definitely to be green, being both accurate and folkloric.
If anyone wanted to model a Malifaux hunt -- most would need to be sculpted from scratch -- it would be a fascinating diorama, -- Lucius on a fine horse, a grand lady riding side-saddle, the Scribe carrying on his tray the silver stirrup-cups and a suitably nasty and badly scarred whipper-in with a pack of deformed and vicious hounds (the original description of the Guild Hounds indicated considerable aberrancies of behaviour and appearance as a result of exposure to the aether Breachside over several generations.
A similarly gruesome set, on foot, could be the Malifaux Beagles, with Lucius on foot with a whip, a huntsman, another aristocrat looking down at the hounds and a mauled corpse in a Badlands ditch -- not clearly human, but it certainly never was a hare.
Either of these would work very well with faery huntsmen replacing aristocrats: elegant, eyeless lords of the Autumn Court parting to reveal, of all things, the neat figure, velvet-green coat and spotless white stock and pin of Lucius Mattheson. Shock and then a slow, agonising death. It would have been better if the Hounds had devoured you.
It should be noted I have never studied the rules as I live in a very remote place and my interest is aesthetic, so I have no idea how useful any of this actually is! However, you did mention brainstorming so I've imposed on you with everything I can think of.
Declared Faction: Outcasts Crew Name: Talos 50ss Leader: Tara - Cache:(4) Emptiness 0ss Dead of Winter 1ss Knowledge of Eternity 2ss Out of Time 1ss Voiceless Words 1ss Malifaux Child 2ss Hodgepodge Emissary 10ss Conflux of Nothingness 0ss Talos 8ss Void Wretch 4ss Void Wretch 4ss Void Wretch 4ss Void Wretch 4ss Freikorps Engineer 6ss Desperate Mercenary 3ss
My latest Tara brew, played one game with it and it went okayish, gotta try more.
The idea is that you can bury two enemy models off Talos and HPE if you got the suit (HPE can get a model 23" away, which is insane), Wretches are protected by Voiceless words by further straining your opponent's hand. Then your Wretches just chomp on the buried guy to their heart's content.
And Talos with Engineer buff is extremely tanky
Obvious choices: Hamelin, Parker, Von Schill -- they can deliver him within burying range
Obvoius synergy: Freikorps Engineer
with Armor +2 he gets really survivable
I've been playing with him in Tara with Emissary, and the crew worked pretty well even against the horror that is Collodi
