    Ply with Booze

    I haven't tried Brewie in Ply yet, but I've been thinking the same thing. As far as a bouncer goes, I feel like Graves would be a solid choice, and thematic!

    @prof_bycid Thanks for the heads up! Depending on what night you guys play I may be able to make the trip, and certainly if you have any weekend tourneys going on. I touched base with the Indy group on facebook and am looking forward to meeting all of you in person soon!

    Monthly Painting Challenge - March

    Moving to Indy towards the end of this month, so setting my painting bar low. Realistically, hoping to put finishing touches on my Tanuki x2 and Krampus. If I find unexpected time, finish work on Johana, then setting sights on Marcus, the Jackalope, and the Hodgepodge Effigy. Realistically, 21ss. Pie in the sky, 49ss. And if the most Daper of Lycanthropes, Ferdinand Vogel, actually hits shelves, I'll hope to paint him in a flurry of excitement.

    Sorry for the delayed post, and the slapdash photo. I've been prepping for a move, which has me losing track of the days. Anyway, this month I finished both my Cerberus cats and added to the general DC comic theme of my Arcanists by painting Myranda as Miss Martian (head swap is from Kingdom Death in case anyone is wondering). All told, 26ss.

    @H4ml3t those look great! So colorful! Love the blending much more than the mono-color I've usually seen on the Sorrows and Geist.

    Suddenly, I looked up and realized the month was half gone! So, what's currently on my paint tray is Marcus' box plus an extra cerberus, the remainder of Winter Wonderland (forgot to picture gamin snowmen, but I won't be getting to them), some tanuki to finish up, a freikorpsman converted to a trapper, Big Jake, Hans, 2 desperate mercs, Johanna, the Hodgepodge Effigy, a Thalarian Queller, and a Goryo. And a partridge in a pear tree. I won't get to even most of them, but I don't yet know my plan of attack, so we'll see what happens. In the meantime, also posting a pic or two of what's distracted me the first half of the month: finally focusing on painting Leman Russ! Still a WIP, and I don't actively play 40k any more, but he's going to look fantastic on display with the few squads I kept for sentimentality, and I thought you all would appreciate him.

    Here we go! As a late Christmas gift to a friend, Seamus' box (totalling 40ss) + Yin (8ss) + a Nurse (5ss), and two Hanged (18ss). For me, Toni and Winter Wonderland Raspy (30ss together) Total: 101ss.

    Need Advice: Mad Brewee Grow Up madness

    I'm not sure if I can say this enough: Banjonistas. Take two and the Sow. Profit. Ranged Wp attacks in a Brew crew. Need I say more?

    Much appreciated! I have not at all been watching the calendar, though the first half of the month was rather productive finishing a late Christmas gift for a friend who wants to play but doesn't paint. I'll finish up what I can of the half painted things on my tray, the rest will wait for next month. Pictures tomorrow or wednesday!

    Datsue Ba and other masters

    I've had some luck using her with Yan Lo. Pop up a seshin for him to kill for Chi turn one, putting adversary on the targets Yan lightning dances back into a ball of waiting spirits/killing them and turning them into Gaki (which, if you bring Toshiro/have adversary on their target, aren't bad).
  12. I like your use of Envy! I don't own the band yet, so I haven't played around with him. For getting scheme markers within 3" I'm always a fan of Practiced Production (at least 3" away *is* exactly 3" away, after all) though I do find I sometimes need more than one marker that close. In that case I am a fan of a Performer/Mannequin duo, or, with the proper delivery system, a Union Minor for false claim. I've been thinking of an Ice Dancer as well, but haven't done extensive testing on it yet.
  13. You're quite welcome! It was fun to write up! As to your question, that interaction IS a big ol' ball of timing wonderment, isn't it? In all honesty, when figuring it out I was going by the timing chart on p51 of the little rulebook, and forgot that Defender's trigger resolves first. So, that trick won't work as I have it written. Instead, you's have to start Cassandra engaged with Colette, hit and damage Colette, declaring her trigger, Colette poofs away, Cassandra uses her Nimble to catch up (where, if you have another scheme marker well placed, Cassandra can hit Colette again - though I'd probably suggest using Understudy for Prompt or something at that point. It's very easy to over-extend doing that trick twice. Anyway, thanks for pointing that fallacy out, I've updated it now!

    @RustAndTheCity I concur with the praise upon your Zipp! I think he's up for promotion - definitely a Commodore!
  15. It's mostly the efficiency, along with being generally hard to deal with at range/before they activate, along with their ability to self heal/stick around. Plus, they no longer compete with Performers or Union Minors.
