    Tournament in Albuquerque on September 30th

    Virtus, our next tournament will be December 9th-- I'll post information this weekend. I'm optimistic we'll have ~8 players, with a couple coming from Los Alamos, and another couple coming from Las Cruces. I'll have a posting up here shortly, and will set up an event on Facebook.

    We had 6(including me). 4 locals, plus a couple guys from Los Alamos. The next tournament will be in mid-November I think. I need to coordinate with the store on a date.

    Fighting Jack Daw

    Jack is one of the most versatile Outcasts masters; but Jack is key to much of that flexibility. As others have intimated, kill Jack or put him under significant pressure and it significantly increases your chances

    Trouble with Summoners

    katadder-- good points on Levi; I've been taking a single master to our game nights for the past several months instead of tailoring lists; I think I might be hamstringing myself a little in certain match-ups. I've also been trying to avoid Levi, since I find he has 'easy' answers for so many situations, and I've been trying to stretch my gaming acumen. Meaning he's very intuitive for me; other masters require some different playstyles.

    Trouble with Summoners

    The thing that was killing me is that the Emissary had the generic upgrade that gives + flips to all minions, and he could generate blocking terrain. PLUS-- he can turn corpses into scheme markers, which enabled him to score at least one of his points for a scheme (The one where you put markers down within 6" of their deployment zone. Reflecting on all this, I think my answer this game was I should focus on killing the emissary at all costs, starting with the crew selection. I could deal with the rest, but he tied up too much of my force.

    Trouble with Summoners

    I've gotten away from playing snipers-- that's a good thought. My most recent match-up was Jack Daw vs. Kirai-- with flank deployment and the table quarters strategy. I had a minion-heavy tormented crew, with the hodgepodge emissary; he was minion-heavy with the carrion emissary. Ended up tied 8-8, after he came from behind. Looking back, I made 1 significant error-- I failed to realize the emissary is not living/undead, so malevolence doesn't apply. I could have (and should have) gone right after it early, but instead I was obsessed with lost love. I also needed to make more offensive choices with my crew--- the emissary just simply wasn't worth its points. Rusty Alyce or a couple 7/8 point offensive/utility moders (Gunslingers, Sue, Johan) would have been better choices

    Trouble with Summoners

    Ok, so it sounds like it's all about pressure, and finding ways to apply it early in the game. What I've witnessed is that by turn 3, I'm struggling in the attrition game. My force has been weakened, and the summoner has been able to keep up with bringing new models onto the board. I also need to better prioritize targets, to pull out the critical elements of his strategy before they establish themselves. limitations on models is not an issue; I have virtually the whole faction, plus the supporting pieces for masters from other crews. I think the main issue is I am taking crews that take too long to apply pressure, so I need pieces that let me get in on turn 1/2 and start disrupting so that I can have more control. Does that sound right?

    Trouble with Summoners

    Hi all, I find my biggest struggles in Malifaux games with Outcasts are against summoner crews. It always seems that it's a losing battle, where they gain the advantage turn 3 or so, and it's a tough go for the rest of the game. So-- any advice on crew selection with outcasts when you suspect you are facing a summoner? What strategies do all of you employ?
