  1. Errata 2018 - your minds

    I accept the increase in Burt (who had been an auto include in every list I have written in the last year) and François makes sense as do the decreases. I can't recall taking any of the pre-reduced models (except Raphael in kin lists (who was only ever taken when I already had both François and Burt as I felt he was the weakest of the three)) in any competitive lists. I'll certainly give the cheaper models another run and see how I feel about them. I get the impression that the increase in McTavish 's cost is more driven by the impact he has when played as a merc than when he is played in faction. Perhaps a more elegant way to address this would have been to make him cost two additional stones as a merc rather than one. I do think that some other models could have done with a hand. For example Rami who feels a stone too much, or sparks who really has to offer something more than he currently does I've not had a chance to fully review all of this in the context of gg18 but my first impression is that we are in a weaker position than we were while other factions have benefited (I don't play other factions but my gaming group seem relatively content with the changes to their factions).
  2. I agree but it's a point of contention.
  3. This came up in a game I played during the week. Ophelia was engaged and there was another enemy model within 10" and line of sight. My opponent was of the view that he could nominate the target that was not engaging Ophelia and that the AP would be spent but automatically fail. This has come up in previous games and my other opponents have had different views (the only consistent interpretation has occurred where attacks were being generated from a charge- where there would only be one legal target). I had always construed it that the enemy model had to be a legal target but, to be fair, the wording is ambiguous. I think a FAQ would assist.

    Apologies for the confusion. I was proposing the box contents and then the alternative theme that would apply to them all. The Wagnerian Valkyrie and mini Valkyrie is what it would all be about.

    May have been suggested before but a kin day of the dead crew? A viking themed mah crew with mancha and wrastlers instead of trixie and Bushwhackers?
  6. New Rankings Algorithm?

    The changes look sound. It is nice to see that the community value the hard work you and Jamie put in
  7. Squatters rights advice

    To answer your question, my own preference would be as follows (if I had to use mah in this list) : 50 SS Gremlins Crew Mah Tucket + 7 Pool - Manifest Destiny (1) - Know The Terrain (1) - Dirty Cheater (1) The Little Lass (4) - Lead Lined Apron (0) Fingers (10) - Stilts (1) Francois LaCroix (7) Burt Jebsen (7) - Dirty Cheater (1) The Sow (8) Bayou Gremlin (3) Bayou Gremlin (3) from memory manifest destiny let's you use get off my land every turn (and cycle a card as you do) with less restrictions after turn one. It is definitely worth picking up.
  8. Squatters rights advice

    I agree with Dogmantra. I'd also add that taking manifest destiny on mah really makes her tick and, to my mind, should be stappled to her card. There's obviously no right answer but I would have went for something along the following lines. 50 SS Gremlins Crew Zipp + 6 Pool - Dirty Cheater (1) - The Gift of Gab (1) - Airship Spotlight (1) Earl Burns (3) Fingers (10) - Stilts (1) Burt Jebsen (7) - Dirty Cheater (1) Swine-Cursed (7) Swine-Cursed (7) Bayou Gremlin (3) Bayou Gremlin (3) Bayou Gremlin (3) Zipp and fingers can stop a lot of interactions to shut down the strategy and zipp is (in my opinion) the best master we have for achieving and preventing assassinate.
  9. Gremlin Crier - Rules Q

    A follow up question: if the crier has "this makes no sense" up and your opponent has its frame for murder target in the crier's aura when it is killed, I assume your opponent does not score from it? This came up in a game tonight and that was how we interpreted it on a 2:1 basis. Thoughts?

    What about a gremlin ronin... Based on the new ototo art?
  11. If you were writting te next erratta....

    What about letting bad juju be an eternal fiend in gremlins
  12. Ophelia - positive sensations

    I found using ooh and girl and the 8 inch place to be great fun. Particularly when you Do it to François, place him within 6 and companion activate him. Just think of it like a gremlin sling shot

    Or a swashbuckling bayou gremlin (think a tiny captain Morgan / black beard) for zipp
  14. If you were writting te next erratta....

    I don't feel any of our models are over powered and need toned down. In order of preference I think the following could do with a boost : Serious boost: Survivors Brewmaster Little boost: Sparks (which could even be achieved by a 1SS upgrade that increases his utility ) Bush whackers (they're just a little off the pace. +1sh or +1 damage would do it) Stuffed piglets (I think the cache back ability would be ideal) - they feel like a 2.5 stone model. There's been a lot of chat about internal balance but, in my opinion, addressing these models wound basically fix that. I'm not sure about Mah. Do her new upgrades fix her?

    I understand that alternative models are supposed to be an "alternative" to an existing model but I'd like one I can field with the original. I'd love a gremlin ronin. Failing that an alt gluttony would be of interest (it's the only released gremlin model I don't have and I don't plan on picking up the cross roads box). A female Lightning Bug would make me contemplate painting the others as a hogwarts crew. A terminator themed survivor would be nice if sparks ever gets the "he'll be back" upgrade to turn bayous into survivors (that I may have been campaigning for in other threads).
