    If Sonnia or Justice they probably need it. In McCabe I use it on a supercharged thrall or McCabe himself depending on who gets to have all the fun engaging a bunch of enemies first. If you use McCabe as a throwaway and just run into the biggest clump of dangerous beaters turn one it helps a lot to have df 9. The few times I played Nellie I had it on Bishop for the ultimate missile of doom. A fast Bishop pushed into flurry range pulls some heat. Lucius can take it on various models, my lists with him tend to be all over the place. Tannen doesn't mind standing around chatting about his adopted brother, he quite enjoys it actually. If the doppleganger is going to go all "hold my beer" and slip into a bunch of enemies it also helps greatly.

    Help Me - Sick of loosing

    Never seen you play so I wasn't actually referring to you. In my game two days ago I gave away three points on it for scheme markers placed in my enemy's deployment zone and I hadn't even been lured there! Marcus, a cerberus and a blessed all went there willingly to get that bastard Lynch, turned out he had it on Marcus. I also easily scored three VP against Huggy in that game because who can resist charging their immortal hench forward? In my club setup is a given in most games, having models left at the end is a lot harder.

    Rolling Over to Thunders - How to Start?

    @Hargus56 thanks for the input! Funny you should say that, since I was eyeing up Mei Feng's box as a purchase somewhere down the line. I figured that there was some synergy to be had with the HR Monks in Shen's box and a lot of her thematic crew.

    He meant Monster Hunter. I goofed and gave up an opportunity to score/deny 1 strat point which "could" have leveled playing field? Pushing a reporting down 1 side and a watcher down the other seemed to work well to get scheme markers up field starting turn 3 (thanks @Gnomezilla) and with the terrain layout it kept them fairly safe and out of the center of field where ALL action was taking place. @azgadil He scored it against Francisco as I ran out of activations focusing on Howard. I used an accomplice putting me an AP behind (did get Howard + Amina in Perdita's activation)

    Thanks for clarifying, both of you.

    Rank Our Masters

    So, seeing the thread regarding the definitely official master tier list (:P), it got me thinking where we all see the Arcanist masters on their own currently. So how about we give the masters their own grades, with best to worst being S, A+, A, B+, B, C+, C, and D. For this I'm considering them to mean the following: S: Top tier, best-in-slot (BIS), whatever you want to call it. The best there is, hands down. A+: A very strong choice, in a good spot and is BIS in several situations. A: The highest end of what I'd consider my acceptably good zone, strong but not OP. May be BIS in a few places, and thrives in several others. B+: Good, but not great. Has a decent number of situations where they thrive, but they're not the BIS anywhere. B: Just good, the lowest end of my acceptably good zone. Has some situations where they thrive. C+: Niche, with few situations where they thrive. These would only need small changes to get into the good zone. C: These ones struggle, and barely thrive anywhere. They may need multiple small or moderate changes to improve. D: Bad, the "for fun only" tier. They'd need significant changes to get into the good zone, or to thrive at all. Personally, I'd rank our masters like so: S: - A+: Sandeep A: Marcus, Ironsides B+: Ramos B: Rasputina C+: Colette C: Kaeris, Mei Feng D: Wrath (lol)

    unstopable industry - protect and produce!

    Kang: The worst thing about Kang is that he isn't dual faction but that's not something that matters for Ten Thunders. Railworkers are awesome 5SS models if you can get them where they are needed. Emberling - This guy might be the best 3SS activation that Mei Feng can hire. His actions aren't great but his stat line is good for a 3SS model and he's a minion that's significant. I've only player Mei Feng as an Arcanist so Ten Thunders might have some better low wSS cost options. I really wish that Kaeris could hire him.

    As long as you always have strong control hand and win initiative then indeed you don't need SS in your pool.

    Ugg I didn't do my homework Shoulder is still not stable enough to paint. Was going to give it a go this weekend but have a camp with the scouts I have to lead. Maybe I will give it a go sunday night and see how it feels.

    Favorite El Ma

    So, who do you tend to use El Mayor on? I generally liked using it on my master, but Lucius and Nellie rarely has a need for it in my experience. I've been thinking about using it to make a thrall def 7. Other potential models for buffing def include my monster hunters, the sanctioned spellcaster, phiona and the Jury. As far as mercs go, Bishop and Taelor both strike me as interesting targets for differing reasons. How about you? Does it stay on your master? Do you put it on someone else? EDIT: Got distracted trying to put the topic on.

    I'm beginning to think that having a lot of SS just doesn't suit my style of play. Everyone seems to have a ton more than me, but there have been very few occasions where I have felt that I needed them... 🤔
  20. Some ferocious beasts managed to make their way into the Creature Feature. It was amazing to see some of the great works that made their way into the contest. But, as with all contests, there must be a winner declared. Let's start with the Single Model category! Single Model Category 1st - CF45: Vegeta Cojo by @Cronazos 2nd - CF 16: Carrion Emissary by @oistene 3rd - CF02: Genbu by @Nathillien Diorama Category 1st - CFD05: Spider Cave by @helldrad 2nd - CFD06: Nightmares by @Bozydar 3rd - CFD01: Ashes & Dust by @KID55 Of course, we also did our raffle. The following people managed to flip the Red Joker! @green-n-dumb @KingJocko @Meffi @Purple Mist and @Sol_Sorrowsong Congratulations to our winners and thank you to everyone who participated! Those who won a prize will be contacted shortly to get everything sorted out. You can set your brushes down and breathe....for now.
  21. It's time for the next great Malifaux Draft! If you haven't come to one of our Malifaux drafts it's a fun format where you play crews with models from random factions. The way this works is each player brings 10 models each from the following ss costs: (4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11+,any, any), their stat cards will form your "pack". After forming packs, we will all sit around a table and each player will give their "Pack" to the player on their left. Then each player will pick a model from the pack and pass the rest to the left, this process will be repeated 9 more times. The 10 models you have drafted will form your hiring pool. For each game you can use any master you want and their applicable totem. The only upgrades you can purchase are the master specific ones and the generic upgrades for your chosen masters declared faction. (The exception to this is the 0ss "patch" upgrades where applicable.) In addition to this we will be playing with the following rule: "If the opposing player has more models left to activate this turn, you may choose to pass without activating a model." This will allow you to play more different fun lists than otherwise possible. The amount of prizes will be based on participation, I have several mystery boxes and store credit will also be an option. As usual any unwanted prize boxes can be sold back to me for store credit, any left over credit will go to the terrain fund. The Important Stuff: Store: Just Games Location: 1601 Penfield Rd, Suite 750, Rochester, NY 14625 Date: Saturday, May 12th 2018 Time: 12pm-8pm (12-12:30 Signups, start at 12:30, time permitting there will be a lunch/dinner break after round 2) Format: Great Malifaux Draft, see above Cost: $10 Hope to see you there. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

    We do the variant where you start with a master, more of a personal preference than anything, as well as a short (4 week) campaign
  25. Hello ladies and gentlenerds, after having a couple of games of McCabe under my belly, I decided to check out Mei Feng. As an arcanist and gremlin player i was very interested in her. So, this is a thread that will show you some of my experiences with her. It will give some thought on general strategy, some hints and tips and some of the thinking process "behind the scenes" you could say.I Her Box: To start off with some new masters, we had a little sealed box tournament with 35 Stones. I went undefeated with Mei Feng (while i got a draw against Misaki) because i faced Tara and Parker, where Vent Steam single-handedly won the matches on their own. Here are some sum ups for you: game 1: Mei Feng vs Parker Barrows Parker had a disadvantage because almost everything his crew does, is shooting. Mad Dog Bracket was not as bad as i thought getting into melee, while Parker still had the chance to blow something up with his actions. I had to double vent most of the time to deny those outcast bandidos to rob my rail workers while doing their job. It was extraction, so i could safely clump in the middle and just score points. The emberling was pretty fine doing his thing and run schemes with incorporeal which was nice. My Rail worker almost always had a card to ditch and charge into the enemy with plusflips. Mei Feng switched their behaviour turn 3 when mad dog killed kang and she took revenge. Was a pretty good, but clear game for me. Result was something like 7:2 Game 2: Mei Feng vs Tara on symbols Mei Feng railwalked in and vented steam like a steamy steamgirl that she is. It totally wrecked my opponent shooting and casting with everything except for tara. His last desperate move was to send Tara in and hope for the best, but the retaliation strike from a pumped up railworker within Kangs aura and a railwalking mei feng that followed up, was just too much and he conceded turn 2 after having no master and being on minus flips all game long. Game 3: Mei Feng vs Misaki Misaki charged in immediately and boy does she hit hard! She did so much damage, that also could easily deal with the railworker and their df trigger, which was quite useful. I couldn't pin her down and the torakage did well popping up where i didn't want. Her Ototo just did not want to die and at the end i just had Kang left who could kill a Torakage and denied another score on guarded treasure. Mei Feng with just her crewbox was super versatile and did a great job at switching from defense to offense. Her upgrades are good and her mobility is just insane! Kang: he is very, very good. He hits hard, is hard to kill, can heal up and is versatile enough to include in a crew! Railworker: those guys really surprised me! 2\4\5 dmg track with plus flips, hard to kill, armor and a trigger to reduce an additional 2. Those bad boys are low cost, high damage, good sustain! Love them after i played them. Emberling: well...i don't like him, but he is a decent scheme runner. Almost useless actions and bad stats. So, after this little opener will be followed by a list and a battle report about the first game i had :-). Hope you enjoy it.
