  1. Monday Preview - Grave Golem

    Been ages since I saw Dogma @Treehouse. It's mostly that the wrinkles reminds me a lot of cowpats of a certain looseness (I grew up on a farm so I've seen many a variety of cowpat and they are more firmly logged in my memory than any of Kevin Smith's movies). It will be interesting to see how the actually model turns out as there is usually a certain disconnect between it and the drawing.
  2. Monday Preview - Grave Golem

    Maybe I'm being juvenile but the image only makes me think poo-golem...
  3. Building a "Blue Deck" Crew

    Counterspell (and thus Warding Runes) are only against Ca actions so are not going affect most models at all.
  4. Well powercreep may not be strictly necessary to stay in business, but making loads of new models is. You got to have new stuff coming out continuously to keep people excited. Powercreep is then more or less inevitable as some models will be overpowered and the meta will shift with them. Of course some models will be underpowered as well but they'll see less use and not affect the meta as much.
  5. Yeah it's fun when stuff have strength and weaknesses but pouring out models and powercreep is how you stay in business, so what are you going to do? I also don't think Zipp have a meaningful weakness, if the Zipp player never planned to interact with Zipp anyway, how are you going punish them for not interacting?
  6. Skulls for the Bone Pile

    Take Prisoner says "there are no other enemy models", it counting as two models doesn't make it "other".
  7. January 2018 Errata

    3 stones for Mouse would still be way too much. One can only hope that he is being completely reworked and they haven't finished testing him...
  8. The Enforcer Problem

    Another way to state my feelings are why would you add something like Collect the Bounty or minion restrictions if there isn't some cap on how good minions can be. Either minion is only an "upgrade yes/no?" thing and they can be as expensive as you want OR you get rid of victory/talents referencing station. I think the current state (though Collect the Bounty isn't that current ) is poor design.
  9. The Enforcer Problem

    I don't think Illuminated (or Acolytes, Rotten Belles and what have you) are relevant since they are supposedly not very powerful (them not being accurately costed is a completely different discussion ). But sure there are some early expensive minions in the Dawn Serpent and Hanged and I don't like them either. Colette have minion restrictions on Rehearsed and Disappearing Act (which while less flexible than Prompt can let you hand out more AP as it's a potentially an almost 30" place). I don't see why you bring up Brass Arachnid as most talents can target anything. But my main point is: why are some talents (e.g. Disappearing Act, Black Flash) restricted to minions if it's not supposed to be some kind of power limit? If it's just a random whim that would be terrible design! I can see a fluff argument for minion only summons as named unique models are more common in the higher stations; and Lucius as he is supposed to be a bully.
  10. The Enforcer Problem

    There are several victory conditions (collect the bounty is perhaps the most egregious example) and talents (i.e. things that go target <keyword> or minion model, or sometimes only minions at all) that seem to assume that minions are lower powered models (not for their cost, just in absolute power). So I think it's a problem that ~10 and higher stone (exact price point can be discussed) minions exists at all.
  11. Any good Doctor Dufresne art?

    There is a picture on page 10 of Chronicles #12 (the story is about another character but the art was reused for Doctor Dufresne).
  12. Forum colours

    Cool. Though I prefer the classic theme, the black bars in the pale theme are a bit too abrupt.
  13. Need Rasputina 2e Crew Cards

    One way to get her is with Guilders (tournament participation tokens). https://www.wyrd-games.net/guilders/ But depending on the local scene that may take a while. Don't know how often she pops up on ebay. You could also try the trade section of the forum.
  14. Kaeris in Wave 5

    I guess I would like to try Carlos at some point but haven't bought the model yet. To do something for Kaeris the Emissary have to compromise too much so have never fitted it. Would never take Gunsmith with anything. For burning I usually take Union Miners and maybe a Fire Gamin or Eternal Flame (more for theme than them being particularly strong). The rest of my Kaeris crews are just generally good Arcanist models.
  15. Well the post is over a year old and book four wasn't in stores yet.
