  2. Thanks Dogmantra, love this answer. I think in casual games I'd play it the "of course" way and in any tournament I would be sure to ask if I suspected it would arise. Hope they clear things up soon
  3. Discussion came up at a tournament whether models can block LoS to markers specifically when a 40mm Ht:2 model stood on top a corpse marker to block Reva from drawing LoS. I was in favor that it does block LoS until someone laid out a good argument against. FAQ #45 often gets quoted to support that a <30mm models can block LoS to 30mm markers however, I now believe this FAQ was only discussing base size mechanics and not addressing Ht: mechanics at all. According to the Elevation mechanics on PG:43 of the big, if the intervening models has a Ht: lower than the attacker, then the blocking model is ignored for LoS quality. This means that in Reva's case only Ht:3 models can block corpse markers while on top of the marker. Is this correct? what do you think?

  7. Welcome All!
  8. Thanks for the great advice Ludvig and Trikk
  9. I was trying to figure out all the math with the Lucius firing line and was wondering how the math broke down and what was the most efficient or best play in this complex combo. I am only looking at the offensive and how to optimize attacks and am not taking into account the good strategy of leaving focus on a couple Rifleman for there Hold/Stand and Fire ability. So the three models that have synergies to create the combo are: If I have three Rifleman in my crew I would get a total of 6 Guard Rifle attacks per their AP and another 3 if Lucius take Issue Command on each of them. a total of 9 attacks, not bad. The trick is how card intensive this is. specifically how many TN and Rams everything needs. Theoretically every Guard Rifle 'needs' a ram for it's Critical Strike so that's 9 rams. Then if Issue Command gains rams the rifleman gain another focus. this is another three rams, specifically 7 or higher. So to live the dream you would need 12 rams and three of them would have to be specifically 7 or higher. Realistically how would the efficiency break down if you don't live the dream? Rifleman can gain 3 focus if they wish. From Take Aim (7) "Ready! Aim!" (0) If they take a focus action themselves. (0) So it probably isn't the most effective AP efficiency taking a focus themselves but taking a (0) focus is good. So they're base stat for Guard Rifle is 1/2/4 damage, if they have focus they gain + for a Critical Strike bumping it to 2/3/5, if another Guardsman has activated, another + for 3/4/6 So if Captain Dashel has activated then Lucius activates and spends a ram to give them focus they would get a 3/4/6, then they could take a (0) to gain focus and another potential 3/4/6, then the last attack would be 2/3/5. All these attacks would potentially bump +1 if they flipped a ram. Now the question is whether it is more effective giving a Rifleman Critical Strike or Focus with a ram in-hand? How do you guys break down the efficiency. It becomes a little easier to calculate depending whether you have a swarm of pewny targets or tanky armor/beefy Df triggers. Still, I would love your help and thoughts.
  10. Good Catch, I reworked the wording by adding the VP condition
  11. Hello Friends, I want to begin by stating that I am in no way associated in the choices or direction Wyrd takes their games. I’m just a loyal dude who enjoys their games and am curious of what the future holds. That said, I had a fun idea during a four-hour drive home from a tournament. A friend and I carpooled and had been talking about the changes and refinements made over the last two years and coincidentally we then listened to Max Value’s podcast about the very same thing and that sparked an idea, here’s the preface. So I love this game because of the decisions! There are decisions in just about every step. The decisions aren't obvious choices but often present thought-provoking and equally beneficial or detrimental choices. The decisions almost always have a caveat and are not wholly beneficial, ‘do + but at a cost of -’ With this in mind there is one step that doesn’t have an ‘options’ phase rather a ‘resolve’ phase and that is the scoring VP or specifically the schemes. The idea I had was if the game introduced yet another critical thinking phase when scoring, would it be game breaking if players had options? Some examples that came to mind; what if future schemes were written like so: I really love how Malifaux has so many fun choices and thought choices during the scoring phase might keep Gaining Grounds ‘fresh’ and not just a rehash from past years. What are your thoughts? I would love to read your ideas of fun schemes that might have options during the VP Scoring phase. Here's the Max Value podcast I referenced
  12. I keep seeing for a lack of a better term, “Orphan Built-in Suits” Many actions scattered over random models seem to have arbitrary built-in suits. When a suit is included but is not required in the TN nor is there a trigger I don’t see the reason for the included suit. I have looked deeper in a couple examples seeing if there were synergy between models somehow but still do not see any correlation. I would love to have this thread accomplish two things: Be a place where people can find and post Orphan Suits Be a place where people who might be in-the-know can answer the mysteries.

  13. Hello, I was wondering if I could get a copy of the PDF that ports all my old puppets from PWv.1 to Unstitched. Would you know where or how I might get this? I know there's nothing official out there and that this was user generated but that's exactly what I'm looking for. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  14. Anyone have the PDF port of the original? I would love to expand my unstitched collection and play with more models
  15. Thanks for putting up with the onslaught of questions....
