    Guild in the competitive scene right now

    There are also henchmen that more often than not mostly focus on just standing in the right place, and they usually don't need all their AP to do that. Francisco, Sidir and Queek fall into that category, and even though they also have pretty good ranged attacks of their own the Spellcaster could still be useful as an alternative attack vector. Phiona and Jury on the other hand don't have (useful) ranged attacks, so it happens to me fairly often that they are left with some unused AP when I'm positioning them for counter charges or big activations with Fast in the next turn. That extra AP could be funneled to the caster as well. The reason why I don't really use spellcasters often, is that I have difficulty fitting them in with all the henchmen I have in my lists (as it's not very uncommon for me to have even 4), but I could definitely see the value of bringing one instead of a reporter for some games.
  2. Ropecon is the largest non-commercia role-playing convention in Europe taking place on July 27-29 in Helsinki Finland. (The name has nothing to do with ropes or bondage. Rope is an abbreviation of the Finnish word roolipeli, which means role playing game.) The event brings together thousands of people interested in tabletop RPGs, LARPs, miniature wargames, and card and board games. In addition to free playing, contests and tournaments, the event also hosts a wide variety of other program relating to games, including more or less academic lectures and speeches, workshops (also in miniature painting) and game demos. As usual, there will also be a Malifaux tournament (and possibly some other Malifaux stuff as well). I will update this post with more information later. The Malifaux tournament will be held on Sunday May 29th. I will update this post with more information about the exact schedule and tournament rules. The official enrollment for the Malifaux tournament is via a Finnish miniature wargame forum sotavasara, but since the forum is in Finnish, you can also contact me personally if you want to attend and find that easier. We only have room for the 16 fastest and the enrollment is open, so you might want to do that sooner rather than later.

    Your ideas how to play vs unstopable crew

    Feels like some people have forgotten Guild is more than just Nellie. Perdita could just kill one of the pigs from range if they wanted to try shenanigans like that. She might be able to get both if she gets some help from other models. She also has Obey, so she could send one of the pigs charging back to the Gremlin crew, potentially also leaving it outside Hog Whisperer's aura.

    We like this stuff. It's affordable, durable, good looking and easy to transport and assemble. The same company also sells a wide range of other scatter terrain.

    When it came up in our group, it was pretty much 50/50 to be honest, and most people around here aren't exactly rules lawyers. Most players will accept any rules interpretation if you are insistent enough about it, but that doesn't mean that you would be correct to insist.

    What is a + worth?

    The distributions for the and are not symmetrical, so median is different from mean.

    Until there is a FAQ or errata saying otherwise, the abilities work as written.

    The criers thing was actually pointed out during the playtest, and it wasn't changed, so this argument is completely invalid concerning them. Either the interaction is intentional or someone dropped the ball pretty badly.

    That also works fine if it has decent stats to begin with.
  11. Myyrä


    You could probably improve your power loop game by not focusing too much on getting the best stats possible. Getting most stats to 6 by looping emissary is quite enough.
  12. Myyrä


    Yeah, I try to never get into a situation where I have to roll a 6. But I guess we all know at least one guy who always seems to succeed at those. High stats are a lot more valuable when cheating, though. That makes me avoid costly models with low stats, but I don't mind having low stats on my cheaper models, who don't get cards from my hand anyways.

    I did some really basic stuff this time, because I think most people might not be aware of this and have not seen the previous thread where I posted more or less the same info (which is no wonder considering even I don't remember when that was). So, here you have the hit probabilities as a function of the difference between attack and defense values (atk-def): and also as a figure, because why not As you can see, having a is more or less equal to having a 2 points higher attacks stat and equal to having a 2 points lower attack stat. One would easily think that hitting something with Df 9 would be impossible when you have Ml 5 and but it's only about equal to having to throw a 6 on a normal 6-sided die.

    I like the Emissary with Justice, McCabe and Hoffman, not so much with others.

    I'll second Ludvig here, you have enough to get going, but would probably benefit from some cheaper activations/scheme running. If I were in your situation, I would buy Nellie's box next for Phiona and Reporters, even if you don't especially want to play Nellie. As for what kind of lists you should be playing with those masters, I would probably build all the lists around Francisco, Abuela, Nino core, especially if there is a lot of interacting in the schemes. They can be played with all three of your masters, in my experience. With Sonnia and Perdita I would then add Brutal Effigy and Papa Loco. With Justice I would probably reach for Recruiter and Lone Marshal (whose cost was just dropped in the errata).
