    Resurrectionist Henchman Hardcore

    I would probably use a Dead Rider instead of Izamu, but otherwise this is identical to what I would use for HH.

    Iron Scorpius choices

    I would take Rasputina, Ramos, Ironsides, Marcus, and Kaeris, since those are the masters I have painted.

    Summon'able Models

    After you start the encounter, you can add a model by hitting the “Add Model” button which appears at the bottom of the crew lists.
  4. It’s still a Ca attack action, and it is still targeting the same model, so as long as you have line-of-sight, you can blast him again.

    Does archie need synergies to work

    Technically, you could put it on Archie with Doc Found a Squid Today to get 3 (0) actions, but other than proof-of-concept, I can’t think of a reason to do so.

    Last list you played: arcanists

    I was playing against a newer Guild player in the following pool: Symbols of Authority Punish the Weak Take One for the Team Recover Evidence Dig Their Graves (not 100% sure on this one) Take Prisoner (again, not 100% sure, since neither of us took these schemes) My crew was: Declared Faction: Arcanists Crew Name: Kaeris - fire & ice 50ss Leader: Kaeris - Cache:(4) Flaming Angel 2ss Grab and Drop 1ss Seize the Day 1ss Eternal Flame 2ss The Firestarter 7ss Imbued Energies 1ss Arcane Effigy 4ss Soulstone Miner 6ss Soulstone Miner 6ss Silent One 6ss Silent One 6ss December Acolyte 7ss My opponent was using Sonnia, Samael, the Judge, an Orderly, a Witchling Handler, a Witchling Stalker, a Thalarian Queller, and the Brutal Effigy. I don’t remember which upgrades he took. I took Punish the Weak & Take One for the Team (December Acolyte), and my opponent took Punish the Weak & Recover Evidence. My December Acolyte (with healing support from both Silent Ones) distracted Samael & Sonnia from the center of the board while the Soulstone Miners, Kaeris, and the Firestarter advanced. Sonnia fell turn 2 from repeated Harpoon Gun shots and a charging Soulstone Miner. (And yes, the Miner did get her soul in a stone.) His Orderly & Witchling Handler each took one of my Symbols, but my Silent Ones were able to hold them off from the third. The Firestarter took out one Symbol, and Kaeris took the other two. Kaeris actually was able to kill a Thalarian Queller with Grab and Drop. Final score: Kaeris 7, Sonnia 3. I scored 4 on the strategy and 3 on Punish the Weak, but my Acolyte failed to die for my last scheme. My opponent scored 2 on the strategy and 1 on Punish the Weak. By the time he revealed Recover Evidence, all of his surviving models were engaged in or near his deployment zone.
  7. Hoffmann, Ophelia, Wong, Lilith, & Perdita. Maybe Sonnia or Lady J. Who am I kidding? If I had unlimited time and money, I’d try to play all of ‘em.

    What competitive list would you bring?

    It all depends on the schemes & strategy, the terrain, the opposing faction, and what I feel like playing on any given day. Too many variables there to give a general list which could be competitive in any situation.
  9. Rotten Belles have become my autotakes recently. Archie, Anna, and the Dead Rider have also shown a lot of promise in my last few games.
  10. Running Marcus with all beasts is perfectly viable. The Sabertooth Cerberus and Blessed of December work well as extremely mobile beaters, and Canine Remains or Hoarcat Prides can work as scheme runners. I tend to add in a Rogue Necromancy, since it is one of my favorite beasts in any faction. Adding non-Beast models can work. When I started playing Marcus, I would run a December Acolyte or Howard Langston for some added firepower, but I’ve done that less as i’ve become more accustomed to using the beasts to their strengths. All in all, Marcus is a powerful enough master to run well with whichever models you want to run with him.

    Can't Start encounters?

    My iPhone has the same issue, but my iPad does not. Both have been recently updated, so I’m not sure what the difference is. Edit: I was able to replicate the bug on my iPad. I completely closed out and restarted the app, and now the format and encounter buttons don’t work. Of course, this means that I will be unable to create formats or encounters until the next update... Bad things happen.

    Sinister reputation not fixed

    It was fixed for me. Did you check in the model list or in a crew list which had been created before the update? I’ve noticed that saved lists don’t automatically update to the new card text. Try removing the card and adding it back in to see if the text has been corrected.

    What can and can't do an insignificant model?

    An insignificant model can do anything which does not require an interact action, assuming no other condition/keyword (for example, being a Peon) prevents said model from performing a specific action or scoring on a specific scheme.

    Lets talk about the Flaming Angel in the room

    I haven’t played Kaeris much in GG18 yet (focusing on Ressers for a league at the moment), but in GG17, I ran her with the Firestarter, Eternal Flame, 2 Silent Ones, 2 Soulstone Miners, a December Acolyte, and the Arcane Effigy. I would take Grab and Drop and Flaming Angel on Kaeris, and Imbued Energies on the Firestarter. The Miners were my dedicated schemers and also could threaten my opponent’s back line. The Frozen Heart models were my main offense/heals/control module. Kaeris and the Firestarter filled in whatever role was needed, given their mobility and flexibility. The crew worked fairly well for GG17, but I feel it will need some modifications to run well in GG18, given the lesser emphasis on activation control and greater need for higher ranking models for many of the current schemes.

    Sinister Reputation upgrade issue

    On the Sinister Reputation upgrade, the text for the title of the Live for Pain attack action appears to have been switched for the effects of said action, so that the title of the action appears to be a long line of almost unreadably small text and the text of the action is only 3 words.
