    Are Will O' The Wisps too strong?

    Wisps were designed to help Zoraida coming back on the table and they are doing it good. Two of them allows to drop Hem on anything covering large section of the table. I play Gremlins and was hiring always one (bear in mind i have to pay 2ss tax to do it) but since i acquired second Wisp I'll be happy to hire two. These lads are auto-take for old Hag. Of course they help Spawn Mother too but who cares about her. Zoraida foremost😁

    Agreed fully on Freokorpsmann especially since Desperate Mercs are 3ss now and Karina - make her hench with restriction of 1 sumkon a turn or ability to drop the card for the suit added to next duel. Ama is ok - difficult to use but ok. Same as Ligeia although this one imo should cost stone less. Gunslingers - come on... i played them (and against them) few times and they were good.

    State of Gremlins in GG18

    I'd say Wong+Zipp and then Swine Cursed, Burt, Survivors, Cranky and McTavish. Why Effigy and Sparks? As for Gremlins in gg18 - we are in ok spot. We are not OP neither under the power curce. Sure some masters are way better than others (same with the rest of models) but i think it is pretty normal.

    Grace's Potential in Ulix

    It takes a lot of setup and it can be countered too easily. IMO if you want to utilize Shot 2 Rear effectively you need 2-3 possible models you can use it on (Grace, Sow and say one Swine Cursed or even Mech Porkchop) so opponent won't be sure where it will come from. That's why i prefer to hire more expensive Pigs and focus on t1/t2 on summoning Piglets

    The Dreamer in GG18

    Illuminated are great with Dreamer but i don't think they need Warped Reality really. Between Armour, Regeneration and two sources of healing they should be really tough to be removed.

    The Dreamer in GG18

    I was thinking about diving into Dreamer's world myself so i started tinkering around him quite recently. Based on few games i played with borrowed crew and broken promises ups i see him as quite viable master who can adapt to every gg18 scheme and strategy. His summoning is still powerful, he can nicely support his crew with Empty Night and in Ours you can field very hard hitting and highly mobile crew which after T1 Daydreams summoning is 10 model strong. I had small conversation about month ago about Stitched Together where people were complaining that this model needs substantial buff... range to small, walk to low, wounds not enough... They were talking about Stitched in Collodi's crew but when i noted that he is as he is due to summoning option in Dreamer's crew they still held their view and didn't want to notuce i.e that Ca6 on summoning model with damage spread 3/4/7 would be a little too much if the range was buffed say to 8 or 10''. I'm aware that Dreamer is not as powerful as Nicodem but i wouldn't trust any tier master ranking too much especially that one you mention above where Dreamer is lower than Lynch (or as Gremlin player i was laughing seeing Ophelia being higher than Zoraida). My two cents anyway

    Our worst models

    Thing is that neither Trixie nor Fingers were designed as damage dealers andi think they are both fine at the moment. Fingers could do with 1 AP Alcohol poisoning ability which could last till end of the turn to make him a bit more versatile but still i think he is ok.

    What would you like to see being changed on summer errata? Personally i would love to see Lenny being changed somehow and Stuffed piggies to get 1ss discount when you hire Taxidermist also. the latter would help Pigapult as well. Effigy needs offucial clariducation only. The last one on my mind would be Emissary - let him have ability that after deployment it gets either Gremlin or Pig characteristic. Rest of the models imo is ok (Gluttony needs full te-work together with whole box).

    Grace's Potential in Ulix

    Paired with Major's auto-Rams seems very tasty. I was going to use her myself in Ulix's crew where she would replace The Sow. Definitely it is worthy trying.

    How many Rats/Cats?

    I had 9 rats myself and it was enough. Not sure how about now cause Benny creates rats as well and i see him as a staple in Hamelin's crew so if you focus really hard on summoning them you might need 12 rats at least.

    Mah is good

    I would love Manja but his short Cg range is too paunfull... and not always you can have impassable terrain when and where you want to use his extended Cg ability...

    Monday Preview - Mystery Monkey Mischief

    Forget whether it is Victorian or Edwardian setting. With all respect but IMHO this model is plainly stupid... Did Cojo ask for help and Marcus supplied the ape, Ramos platings and Ironsides brass knuckles???🤣
  13. daniello_s

    Mah is good

    Gremlin power! Forgot to mention - if i want to go crazy i swap one Swine Cursed for Rooster. Rooster pushed into enemy crew with buffed Ml is so funny thing to do😎
  14. daniello_s

    Mah is good

    My core crew is: Mah - dc, manifest destiny, apron Whiskey Golem - Barrell Up Emissary - mah's conflux 2x Swine Cursed 3x Survivor Sometimes i change Emissary for Burt/Taxidermist with dc

    Mah is good

    Great writing Math. Really good insight into wooden spoon lady😁 After Broken Promises I found Mah 4th best Gremlin master after Zipp, Somer and Wong (and Wong only because Glowy upgrade otherwise she would be 3rd). She can hit pretty well, she is mobile, she can push her models around, she can cycle bad cards. With proper models (which means with high Ml stat) her crew can be very aggressive and dangerous. I found Survivors and Whiskey Golem really good with her now (thanks to their cost drop). Also Emissary is really decent with her and I used to take him pretty often. Bushwackers are decent now although they are still card hungry and I don't dare to take more than one. They are very nice as the flanking models and backup scheme runners with quite solid punch for 5SS minion. Pit Traps i treid few times with Little Lass but at the end of the day I prefer to take third Survivor instead. Little Lass I think should be dropped to 3SS and then she could be seen bit more often.

    Hope it is not for Malifaux... I went into this system because of the steampunk flavour... This is one above is a joke in my eyes...

    Getting the gremlin urge.

    Mah can be played as straight brawler or as support master pushing her crew around when necessary. And her card cycling is now very interesting. Ulix is played as summoner on t1/t2 and then he shoots his favourite pig in the enemy crew to make havoc and distraction. He is nowhere good as Somer but still a decent master.

    Som'er in GG18

    My typical crew looks like this: Somer - DC, Family Tree (4 pool) Skeeter Burt - DC Iron Skeeter 2x Bayou Gremlin Slop hauler Banjonista 2x Swine Cursed If i need more SS in pool i swap Banjonista for extra Bayou Gremlin. T1 I summon two Bayou Gremlins. If I want to cycle cards i summon 3 Bayou which gives me 3 cards (2+1 from Banjonista nearby). T2 is more summoning or switch to damage dealing.

    Som'er in GG18

    I don't see Emissary anywhere apart Zoraida and Mah. I played Somer few times in GG18 and although he is not that good as he used to be, he is still very very good master.

    Our worst models

    Happy you are optimistic about the future of the game/Gremlins however I'm a wee less optimistic in this matter as I think Wyrd is getting out of ideas how to keep the spirit of the faction and in the same time design new models which can be considered competitive with older models and not being over the power curve. Unfortunately it results with models like Kentaroui which are complained about and Bayou Smuggler which raises the eyebrow and forces people to ask - really??? And what's the point of releasing models now which require models from the next wave to work properly?

    Ok, let's get back to moaning about GREMLIN bad models and not deviate towards Hans anymore

    Lucky Effigy

    Jafar made a topic about Gluttony and I want to ask similar question about our Effigy - anyone used it? In what purpose? To me it is a 'dead' model but maybe I miss something.
  25. daniello_s

    Your ideas how to play vs unstopable crew

    Hamelin with Hans stop this crew easily. Add Trapper as well and you inflict pain and misery to Gremlin player... And I'm saying this as Gremlin player myself😉
