    Slow Player solutions ?

    You might run into 2h15m (Stockholm?) or 2h30m (ITC?), but yeah strictly gg18 tournaments (and all Finnish ones I've been to I think) are 2h. It's more than enough to finish a game if you know your models and leave Analysis Paralysis out🙂

    Summoning as Kirai or resurrectionist

    What kind of games have you played so far? SS size, which strategies and schemes, which crews has your friend used? To give a half joke answer, way you win against a summoner is getting more VP than they do hah.

    Mortarion's Malifaux models

    Yeah, Wyrd seems to like their plastic boobies. Looking good on the painting front😎

    Bone Piles?

    Maybe not in gg18, didn't bother to check, but at least core rulebook and I think some earlier gg uses conditions (for ex. "Cursed Object").
  5. No it's not. Rulebook on "Bury" says nothing about it being a condition. I do agree that neither player counts as killing the buried model.

    Why does Poland love the Raptor?

    I'm no Polish elite but I like a Raptor every once in a while😄 Myranda + Skinwalker and Raptor in Symbols of Authority is a good way to score some strat points. End of t2 or later you can drop the bird to block your own strategy markers, or wherever else that's going to frustrate your opponent. I like one in every pool where they can just stand around and be annoying, admittedly rarer in gg18. When they're not straight up denying VP I think of them as potential Slow/Paralyze I can place next to most things, that with a bit of luck I can re-use.

    Shenlong Burn like Fire

    You can. If Stitched has already activated, it's going to be risky considering TT lacks strong chain activations.

    Hey now! Watch the language, please 😄

    Shenlong Burn like Fire

    No. "Model may not benefit from the Reactivate Condition more than once per Turn, even if it lost the Reactivate Condition and then gained it again." -Small rulebook page 62 under "Reactivate".

    Shenlong Burn like Fire

    Fast goes away at the end of a model's activation. If it's on a model, Shenlong can steal it. Look up "Fast" in the rulebook. But note! When a model activates, it first generates AP (eg. +1 from Fast), then it starts to actually use its generated AP for various actions. What this means for Shenlong is that he can't actually use Fast he steals from others, since he has already generated his AP for that activation and as explained his freshly Gained fast goes away at the end of his activation. Look up "Activation" in the rulebook.

    Katanaka Crime Boss help

    Do you feel like you get enough damage out of them? IIRC Crime Bosses don't hit too hard and in my experience Wokou really need a harder hitter to team up with to get value out of their Mask trigger. Or is the idea that Boss gives fragile after which Wokou will be hitting moderate 4's more often than not with Bosses getting a Mask trigger swing every now & then? How's their staying power?

    Does anyone use these models?

    Also has some play in Symbols of Authority. Fun combo for anything asking for a ton of mobility.

    Third Floor Wars - Mr. Tannen

    I like to give him Death Contract (killer discards 2 cards/ss or dies). Adds extra cost to taking him out. Fun model and great article.

    Models better out of faction

    As a Marcus player I feel like pigs are a fun but suboptimal pick to put it politely, lacking access to upgrades, support models and whatnot from Gremlins.

    Samurai and 0-upgrades?

    I've got two awesomely painted archers too. Even painted woodgrain on their helmets and everything. I occasionally use them against very new players, because their ranged attack is actually pretty fun and functional. It's the fact that they get completely shut down by simply parking a model next to them, and die to a stiff breeze, that keeps them from "real" games.
