    Master Roulette ?

    I did something similar with WHFB years ago, but they were prepared lists that were balanced to an extent by people who were not me and knew much more about how to do that. I have thought something similar would work if scheme and strats were generated before, then compose lists and have players randomly draw from that. Or expand the lists so that some amount of crew creation can be done by the players.
  2. I own a few masters outside of my main faction Neverborn) already, but those that still catch my attention are Rasputina, especially the winter wonderland set, Mah because a spoon as a weapon is awesome, and cat lady Hamelin. Those that I could not pass up already are Seamus who was my first master back in 2010 because undead hookers, Molly, Shen Long, and Zipp.

    Is Malifaux too complex?

    For me Malifaux started and has always been a casual game that I enjoy because of the sculpts, the fluff, and the universe. I started playing in 2010 and collected Seamus and Dreamer because of those exact reasons. I tend to not commit much to memory about opponents' models, and only some of my own to be honest. I've always liked the idea of tournaments being single master for that reason as well. It's a characterful game and that draws me in. As a primarily Neverborn player now, I don't want to have to play Collodi to have a better chance of winning and would rather play Lynch because I like the models. Fixed list would be fine with me, or let people know in a tournament packet beforehand what the schemes and strats will be so they can craft their lists for their master. Can Wyrd do anything? I don't know that there is really anything that needs to be done. Yes there are a lot of models, but that provides variety. Thinking back to one of the big reasons I left GW in the dust was becasue I was tired of facing the same Dark Elves and Daemons lists every game with little variation while I played an army that I enjoyed, but wasn't super competitive. I think there needs to be some definitive clarification on elevation, however. Either don't use elevation (no going in buildings or on rooftops or hilltops) which is boring or make some official ruling and call it a core rules errata.

    Getting Into Neverborn

    Players in Washington, DC?

    I'm also going to second the trip to the burbs. It's been a while since I lived in the DMV, but there are a lot of stores with active communities, many should be reachable by Metro
  6. Has the community diminished that much since I left?

    what's your crutch?

    Seconded the doppel. Cheating initiative is just too fun.

    Are Gremlins OP?

    Similarly, scheme heavy screams Titania from NB.

    Are Gremlins OP?

    To the OP, what are the "extras" you guys have? I can't speak for the Arcanists, but the NB I do have some experience with. If he's running garbage added to a crew box it doesn't set up success. My opinion is Gremlins aren't broken and, unless something has drastically changed recently, Ophelia is not even close to broken. I make the recommendation to anyone playing NB if you want to win at all costs have the all-stars available. If you want to have fun, play with models you like.

    Are Gremlins OP?

    Well that's obviously a biased opinion being 10th ranked on that website. All kidding aside, despite the issues with reporting that's awesome John

    Latest upgrades

    They are/will be available as a separate deck for purchase but the last update I saw Wyrd won't be including them in the master boxes. They should be available now or some point soon on the official app too.

    Starting Lynch

    I'm still in the camp of 'don't rely on Brilliance to win you games' because I haven't seen a reason to trust other play styles. So I generally prefer undying Huggy Bear. I have never used Beckoners in a competitive list because Lilitu. Better melee range, better Lure, I feel (just feeling mind) more able to put wounds on a model, same cost. Doppel is great in scheme marker pools because of don't mind me, and in general because copying actions and cheating initiative which lets you be a little more aggressive since you can cheat to go first. My opinion on Nekima is I love her. However, 2 Illuminated for the cost of Nekima and a stone is usually where my mind goes.
  13. I have to side with @yool1981 on Illuminated. They're good, yes. But they're meant to be stuck in against an enemy, probably a beater. And of the 3 NB masters I own and play, I only ever consider taking them with Lynch, the other 2 being Dreamer and Titania.

    Serena Bowman proxy ideas

    Seconded @gribble. Just did a quick image search and there are some decent parts to make one without using a model that already has a designation in Malifaux.

    Looking down the line

    Going to throw Johan and Mr. Graves into that list as well for recommendations on purchases. Thus completes the Neverborn All Stars.
