    Argentbadger's Malifaux Miniatures

    Good call on the beak. Ties in nicely with the other colours and draws the eye up towards the face. Wings also look great, black is hard to get right but they look spot on. Think the wash in the paler fabric might be a bit heavy. Gave it a great colour but the pooling is pretty heavy in some areas. Don't really feel the absence of the skull thingamajig. There's still plenty of visual interest in that area with the way you've picked out the details on the underside of the wings and the way he's posed with one hand weapon looks completely normal with the other hand held back in a fist. Keep up the good work!

    What's in a name

    I know there have been threads in the past about where Wyrd have got the names for models etc, I know because i've started a couple, i can't find them now to add to it but i've just read about a certain Phineas Gage who was a rail worker in the Mid 1800's. He was impaled through the skull and lost an eye but survived. One eye and a metal skull cap and very sturdy. Phiona Gage must be his sister. Brilliant.

    You Can't Take the Scrip From Me

    Maybe one of the desperate mercenaries with the weapons and hat cut off and hair sculpted on?

    Our worst models

    They're probably well costed for their damage output. And with Return Fire upgrade become more dangerous

    Argentbadger's Malifaux Miniatures

    This is the Carrion Emissary, a nice centrepiece model for my Resurrectionist crews. The Carrion Emissary brings some rather useful abilities to Resurrectionist crews, having a really nice (short) ranged attack and the option to put down blocking terrain pieces called Shards of Kythera. On crowded boards this can be crippling to some crews all on its own. Not only that, but when the Shards disappear they can have a Mindless Zombie appear. This is, of course, very useful for anyone who wants corpse markers handy for either summoning (Nicodem) or attacking (Reva). One of the most interesting things about the Carrion Emissary is that it can choose from one of eight free upgrades; a generic one and a specific one for each master. I've prefered the generic one in most cases as there is often a frustrating anti-synergy to go with the benefits of the master-specific upgrades (and I should point out that most people seem to prefer to pay for My Little Helper anyway so that a second set of Shards can be employed). I painted up the Emissary sort of like a big crow, but realised that a black beak didn't look right so it got a light brown beak instead. It was really nice to play with a large model like this and I spent a bit longer highlighting the wings than normal. The clothes ended up looking a bit like it's cosplaying as Obi-Wan Kenobi but this wasn't intentional; anyway I like the contrast with the dark feathers. There is supposed to be some kind of skull doo-dah in the right hand but it kept falling off so in the end I just gave up on trying to keep it attached.

    Wow, very neat. That green for the scrubs is just perfect.

    English GT 8th and 9th September Wayland games

    Excuse the novice question. When it says 'will follow the usual gg18 rotation' does that mean S&S will be as the September rotation in the gg18 rules? with this twist added?

    Our worst models

    They are also very slow - WK 4 is same as Sue has, but his guns are rg 12" instead of 10" and are dealing more damage (although are less accurate). I think there are few ways how to improve them - either increase their walk and range as I said before, or - for instance - give them Hard to Kill or increase their defense to 6, or give them built-in slow trigger, or even reduce their cost by 1-2 soulstones.

    Trouble in Paradice 2 - 20-21 October 2018

    Will keep that in mind

    Our worst models

    I like the gunslingers, but I think that their worst thing is their Df 4. It makes their trigger almost anecdotal.

    Our worst models

    The only thing how I'd change Vanessa would be to make her Leyline ability to be active when she is within 2" of the centerline instead of being active when she stands on it. About Gunslingers - I'd take them if they would be WK 5 and Rg 2"or 12".

    been a while since I've asked, what was your last list you played

    I played another vassal game tonight; Symbols of Authority Punish the Weak Recover Evidence Hold Up Their Forces Covert Breakthrough Take One For the Team I took that same Lucius crew from above; Lucius - 7ss Surprisingly Loyal Deep Pockets Condescending The Scribe Lawyer Death Marshal 2x Orderlies Austringer Graves Tannen My opponent took; Lady J - 5ss Swordfighter Another one Franc Wade In Hermanos Jury Numb 2x Recruiters Investigator Brutal Effigy Scales of Justice I took Take One For the Team on the Death Marshal on the theory that he was definitely taking Punish (spoilers, he was) and Recover Evidence because, Lucius. He took Punish and Undercover Breakthrough. The game was fantastic. Turn one he rolled up and I jockeyed for position. Top of two I popped Recover Evidence and threw Lucius in to score the first point on it and tie up his crew for a minute. I had a solid hand to back up the play - eight cards and nothing lower than a 9. Plus a full cache. He activated Lady J and discarded an 11 and a 12 for Justice at the End of the Blade to gain positives to all flips against Lucius for the rest of the turn. The rest of his hand was three 13s and the Red Joker. Now, thanks to some lucky prevention flips it did take both J and Frank to kill Lucius and I was able to sneak in and grab a second evidence marker with the Marshal. Other highlights included the Scales chasing around my lawyer turns 5-6 to try and stop it interacting. Both times I discarded a card to put it on negatives to disengage, and both times I black jokered my Df flip, and still managed to disengage. Graves showing both Frank and Lady J the door, repeatedly, in order to deny him Punish points. My Orderlies ganging up to beat a Recruiter into the ground. The game ended on turn 6. We tied 7-7. I scored 2 for Take One For the Team, full points for Recover Evidence, and two on the strat. He scored three for the strat, three for Undercover Breakthrough, and just the one point on Punish.

    Except that was a limited time online sale. Granted he was later on general release. I have no idea how many people buy pre-release stuff at gencon, but they are often also buying with no knowledge of the stat cards. I would be surprised if they show the cards. Especially if they are in the next book. But now the app exists who knows when they'll show cards. I wouldn't expect the new books cards until the release of the book in September.

    Pushing out of Hazardous Terrain

    I agree it's option 3. You activated in hazardous terrain so you will have to take a damage flip. You can choose the order you resolve start of activation things but they still happen.

    Pushing out of Hazardous Terrain

    I'd go with option three. You can clearly choose the order of the effects but I don't think you can choose to change which effects you need to resolve by messing with the order.

    Assigning Schemes and Strategies

    If you tap on the scheme/strategy on the left side of the screen it will show crew 1, tapping the right side gives the option for crew 2. That’s how it works on iOS anyway.
