    Samurai and 0-upgrades?

    A 9 wd model with Armor 2? Gimme! I think people play them all wrong. They are walking tanks with Earth. Their Diato is a solid 6 and one of the few ways we can ignore armor with 2 triggers that have the potential to increase armor. The gun is a trap, but also useful. Only use it when you have a 13 in hand, target only things with DF5. At worst you tie, but if your opponent is packing a RJ it would be tempting and 4 damage on an Armor 2, 9 Wd model is a lot better than flipping a BJ or losing a duel to low cards in hand and them cheating in RJ damage on something else.
  2. A weekly Wyrd day will be starting at Games of Antioch/Gamer's Guild in Antioch, CA. This will be a weekly event where I will be demoing, teaching Malifaux and in a couple weeks running a Shifting Loyalties League and overall gaming. When The Other Side is released that will also be demoed and played. This will be kicking of on 5/22/2018 and run every Tuesday evening from 5pm-8 to 8:30pm. Come on down and join us. Any questions please PM me.
  3. Thanks! Everyone has been great and very helpful
  4. Shot of the last demo. Overall successful run. Demos were given to over half a dozen people, while rekindling the Malifaux flame in some people who have been out of it for a couple months. While this ends the scheduled demo month if anyone in the area is interested in a demo PM me. I will be working with the store and players to establish a regular Wyrd day (have someone interested in running TTB while I handle the Malifaux/TOS).

    Mei Feng Tactica.. ish

    I've been doing some Mei this year. I have been experimenting a lot mostly at lower point games so probably not great advice but I'll throw in some thoughts. Toshiro is a must with Command. Porkchop as well outside of those 2 I have tried some others. I dont think I am hurting for scrap marker generation. I had 2 Komainu and picked up 2 more boxes after 1 game alone that did not include an emissary. I think for the points the Emberling is enough as. 2nd early scrap marker source. I really like the Obsidian Oni, again scrap generator with a heal. Sniper too just the pressure these guys put on is great. RWs are maybe my favorite model moderate of 4 and a 0 that can get you there, the most under rated model in the game. Bunraku too a construct that is hard to hit amd has a mini lure. I want to try out Willie still 6pts for the toolkit he brings is pretty good.

    Rolling Over to Thunders - How to Start?

    I like Kang alot as my beatstick. His self heal is amazing late game. Ml7 is really strong. His ability to allow other models to ignore horror tests. And against Ressers he is so good. Also Mei is great against shooting armies and Rail Workers with their moderate damage of 4 and (0) to get pluses on the attack and damage flip are solid.

    Very new.

    Use cards when you play. Use the app for building your crews.
  8. Wanted to bump this and state we had 2 successful demos. If you're are in the area and are interested or a seasoned player come on out.

    Where are you based out of?

    Rank the TT starters

    I agree with this 95%. Never demo with masters it is just too much. I also like having 2 duplicate minions for simplicity. Keep it to a henchman hardcore format without the time restriction. The other 5% I do disagree with is I like to see a shooter on both sides of table to show off that aspect and the cover system. If we are talking next level crew box only games then Lynch, Mei and Misaki in that order as they are straight forward boxes with some synergy/interaction.

    New Master - Misaki Synergy (Brainstorm)

    Yeah I agree. I was just throwing out what I typically run and a 9 Wd Armor 2 model is just a pain in the butt to deal with. And with a triple positive and high cards in hand you can throw out shooting attacks against low Df models even in cover. I would say a better option for a Discard Misaki would be Lotus Eaters with their Threaten Attack. They also seem all around solid with scheme removal and healing shenanigans. Agressive Stance has some synergy with Misaki as well.

    Very new.

    I think an aggressive Mei would like the High River Monks spreading burning around for her and her crew. They arent great but at 5pts (new errata cost) they are more worth it. Lone Swordsman and Yu have some synergy for sure a fast and reactivate on a decent beater is a good thing. Only downside of Yu and Mei is the lack of a (0) Tactical for him to copy. It overall is a good start. Rail Workers are typically overlooked but I quite enjoy them. I would look into Bunraku as well. Their short lure could bring in already activated models. In tandem with a High River Monk to hand out burning. Then Mei railwalks to Bunraku and gets positive damage flips to the burning target. While there are other ways to hand out burning High River Monks low damage is actually +1 more due to burning and relentless is really nice to have.

    New Master - Misaki Synergy (Brainstorm)

    I like Earth. Jigoku would defeat the purpose of enticing your opponent to cheat. Earth would increase the number of times you can entice them to cheat.
  14. To celebrate my acceptance into the Henchman Program and further support and expand Malifaux in the little gaming corner of the East Bay Area I will be setting up demo and play days alternating days for the next 6 weeks to expose the game to new players of other games that may be attending the FLGs on their game days. Games of Antioch/Gamer's Guild in Antioch, CA will be hosting the events and I will be present for demos, guidance with rules and open play. The days and times are as follows: Tuesday 3/27 from 5pm-8pm Wednesday 4/4 from 5pm-8pm Thursday 4/12 from 5pm-8pm Friday 4/20 from 6pm-10pm Saturday 4/28 from 2pm-6pm Sunday 5/6 from 2pm-6pm

    What are some good Ten Thunders builds for Henchman Hardcore?

    I like that list. How does the Komaniu work for you? Was wondering if an Oiran would be a good substitute. WP buff, the no attack showgirls condition, disguise always good, another way to get some poison, a lure (card dependent) and Hidden Agenda on Toshiro (probably wouldnt purposely get Toshiro into a combat but hey if it happens fast amd focused for a 0SS upgrade aint bad.
