    Alt Lazarus Arrives!

    Sooooo many Happinesses!

    Why is Tara considered so good?

    Why yes, I have heard he is! Thanks for the fun I had with that list.
  6. MudgeBlack

    Why is Tara considered so good?

    I ran a list that another player suggested (sorry I can't properly credit it) that involved 4 abominations for cards and activations with the last forming them into the desolation engine, Death Marshall to bury Rusty Alice, Malifaux child using Tara's ability to fast and bury Lazarus, Tara burns Oath keeper (if needed) unburying both Laz and Alice, Alice gives Laz reactivate, then Laz activated twice healing and raining down 4 shots with each activation (fast plus rapid fire then oath keeper plus rapid fire). Wasn't always effective but it was fun.

    Comment on list in local Tournament Parker? Viktoria?

    I second the Emissary with Parker if you can fit it.
  8. MudgeBlack

    Parker with Bishop and Hans

    Typically with Parker I run a combination of: Sue (with Return Fire), Johan (Oathkeeper), Dead Outlaw (in pairs of possible), and Parker doesn't leave home without the Hodgepodge Emissary (throws trinkets around and drops enemy scheme markers in convenient places for Parker and dead outlaw).

    Trouble assembling Ailuromaniac

    I don't remember having much trouble but it's been a while. Are you cleaning up any sprue/flash with a hobby knife any dry fitting pieces before applying solvent? Also, have you looked at the assembly diagram on the Wyrd resource page? I think it's under blueprints then search for Curiosity Killed the Cat.

    My bandit adventures with Parker

    Got in another game with the Bandit King. Parker (Black market, stick up, hail of bullets), Doc, Mad Dog (lucky poncho, Oathkeeper), Hodgepodge Emissary (stolen goods), Midnight Stalker (oath keeper), Bandito, dead outlaw. vs Kaeris, Firestarter, Eternal Flame, Carlos V, Flame Gamin, Wind Gamin, Arcane Effigy, Steamfitter, Miss Fire Guard the Stache I took Claim Jump and FfM(Mad Dog) Nick took Claim Jump and Accusation. Final score 5(3 CJ, 2 GtS) vs 6(3CJ, 3GtS) to Nick First thing, I had my head up my butt putting Oathkeeper on Midnight Stalker, he spent most of the game on my opponents half of the board so was already fast. Could have given him a better upgrade. Mad Dog finally came through for me, Turn one he had Carlos down to 3 wounds and killed the Eternal Flame with blast markers off of Carlos. He finally died to burning at the end of turn three which would have netted me 2 points and the game had the Firestarter not burned to death at the same time. Midnight locked down one side of the board and scheme running. He wasn't as killy as I expected but did get in one kill and hold that side of the board. He wasn't the best fit in a Parker crew but I wanted to give him a spin to see what he could do. Between starting Cache (5) and stones generated, Parker tore through 13 stones in the course of the game. I need to try out his other limited for the cards and attack obey as I was often 'card starved'. I continue to like the Emissary with Parker, I really can't see not taking it (plus I'm using the old Viks Avatar for the Emissary). The Bandito did a good job before she was killed, I will continue to use at least one. Nick has gained an appreciation for Dead Outlaws and kills them ASAP but they do well for me. All in all I had a great game and feel that I am finally STARTING to get a handle on Parker. He continues to be great fun. Added note, the Steamfitter continues to be a thorn in my side, between her Reinforced Plating saving models from Severe Damage (including a couple Red Jokers) and her picking up good cards from the discard.

    My bandit adventures with Parker

    Claim jump Eliminate the leadership Dig their graves Frame for murder Hunting party Also forgot to note that I totalled 9 Stones after 3 turns (started with 4).

    My bandit adventures with Parker

    Got in another game with Parkie, same crew as last time vs Lynch (TT) Lynch, Huggy, Illuminated x2, Thunder Bro x2, Sticthed, Depleted, & Thunder Archer. Guard the Stash I took FfM(Mad Dog) and hunting party (mistake on my part as I only had Johan & Mad Dog while he had a lot of very durable models). Josh went with Claim jump and Eliminate the leadership. We ended up calling it at the end of turn the due to time constraints. Final score was 2(GtS) to 4(2 GtS & 2 CJ). He threw Huggy in early and tied up both of my beaters which kept me from scoring hunting party and Mad Dog survived for a change to deny me FfM. Josh out activated me and consistently won initiative so I got hurt on activations. For being Rusty at the game, Josh played well. The good for me was I think I'm finally starting to get his juggling down and I did much better with it and picked up my pace a little. Had a good time putting back some cider and losing to a friend.

    My bandit adventures with Parker

    Yes, he did know I was using Parker but I don't think that influenced his decision. He really likes seize the day no matter who he's up against.

    My bandit adventures with Parker

    Had another go around with Parker. Parker (Black market, stick up, hail of bullets), Doc, Mad Dog (lucky poncho), Hodgepodge Emissary (stolen goods), Johan (oath keeper), Bandito, dead outlaw x2. Vs Ironsides(Seize the day +2), Rail Golem, Johanna (Imbued Energies), Miss Fire, Arcane Effigy, Wind Gamin, Gunsmith, +1 Guard the Stash I took Claim Jump and FfM (Mad Dog) Nick took the same with Rail Golem for FfM I got simply destroyed. We called the game at the top of 4 because I only had one Dead Outlaw left, everyone else was dead. Final was 2(FfM) to 7 (4 GtS, 3 CJ) Top of second turn Ironsides pulled Mad Dog out of cover, through my Hail of Bullets markers then punched him up for about 5 damage. Parker pulled MD back out of melee so he could lay into Ironsides but before MD could go, Johanna charged in (burning Imbued Energies) and tried to put Mad Dog down. He weathered the storm with one wound remaining. Johan burned Oath Keeper and charged Johanna (IMPOSTURE!) and put her in the ground to free up Mad Dog (again!) but before he could activate the Gunsmith activated and put down the Mad Dog.From there out things just went downhill. I started with 4 SS, by the end of the game I had burnt through 8 and still had 2 on hand. So he knows how to make stones. I am really struggling with Parker, I either need to play a LOT more games with him or shelf him. Don't get me wrong, he is great fun. I am just having a rough time with juggling upgrades. Knowing which to ditch, which to pick up and which are the most effective at the right time. One thing I noticed was that I was card starved most of the time, maybe going with his other limited would help (more cards vs less SS generation). Any help or comments appreciated. Also links to good battle reports that I can learn from.
