We're currently updating the site and a few things may run slow or not as expected at the moment. Give us a day or two to get everything sorted out and changed up if you would.

One of the new things you'll see about are the 'sticky notes' which you will occasionally see from the site Admins if something important shows up or is newsworthy, or if you happen to be in one of our many beta testing groups giving you an additional heads up when something new needs to be looked at or sorted.

You can send these amongst yourselves as well if you wish, just don't abuse it. 

Thanks for your patience!

  1. yea more to lock zipp down so you can kill him, Say you bring anna close to him after he activated and then have reva ghost him to death.
  2. Isn't Carrion emissary a good pick for reva against gremlins? Popping out shards and then first thing that happens is reva killing of a mid tier gremlin(such as an iron skeeter) with the zombie it spawns. Fingers is a god in headhunter if you don't stop him, He is though not that hard to kill for his cost, especially if you pin him down with either making him stuck between your models or anna lovelace... speaking of... Anna lovelace is really good against most of zipps crew movement shenanigans. Think it makes skeeters unable to ferry models within her aura. they can't move earl around with other skypirates... zipp can't use grab a rope, First mate can't leap, fingers can't squeel. Deffo a model worth looking into getting. (* I don't actually have annas card so I might be wrong on exactly what place/push etc she prevents)
  3. As some people have said: Burt is a good addition to any gremlin crew. He especially likes the dirty cheater upgrade(healing one wound + hard to kill will make him a pain to finish off) I'd also invest in a box of slop haulers as gremlins tend to hurt themselves, these are especially good with somer teeth who summons but I like em no matter what master I play. A worthy mention is also Merris Lacroix as she can both protect your crew and is a really good scheme runner. What to play and how to play it really comes down to what the schemes, deployment and strat is flipped. I'd suggest looking at the scenario and making a plan for what model will score what points. For example: I generally field Zipp over Somer in strategies where I benefit from blocking my opponent out of points by making em unable to reach the markers such as Guard the stash or Extraction. Schemes Zipp loves are undercover entourage(he is super hard to pin down), Leave your mark(can drop off earl far up the board) but also quick murder and sometimes eliminate the leader as he can bring a enemy model our from cover and have his crew nuke it. Somer teeth really shines if you face ressurectionists or any summoner with his discard the whole hand ability as they can't reliably summon anything then. He also preforms really well on schemes where you want alot of models such as Reconoiter or interference. But finally it all comes down to how you think you will be able to score and deny points for your opponent. Read all the schemes and strats and get an idea how you would gain points for it, Trial and error. An example: Eliminate the leader is in the pool and I've picked Zipp and francois in my crew. if I now face a master I am confident I can kill I'll pick eliminate the leader and set it up so I can use zipp to drag is master towards francois, use francois chain activate and nuke the leader, hopefully doing loads of damage, forcing him opponent to use his soul stones and discarding cards(zipps upgrade) And say it didn't work, then you analyse what went wrong, and do it better next time or try something new. Trial and error... Experience comes with time.
  4. Sell me on Sparks

    When a bayou gremlin is reduced to 0 wounds within 3" sparks may take a Ca5 TN 16(crow) flip. if successful summon a survivor into base contact with the bayou gremlin before removing it. A Bayou gremlin used to summon a survivor does not count for any strats and schemes and does not leave a corpse marker. ...Gremlin machine apocalypse incoming
  5. Who to use and when

    All of this depends alot on scenario but: Ophelia against outcasts is something I would only do if I knew for certain my opponent was fielding jackdaw as she can plink away upgrades and negate his -flip when attacking him making him one dead jackdaw. Otherwise Somer is usually a stronger pick than ophelia. Two trappers and hans? Quite the sniper squad, sounds like you could make use of the terrain and just stay out of line of sight. Another option would be something like the iron skeeter rush having 2 skeeters who drop off a fast ophelia and burt(or a lightning bug) in the face of those snipers late in a turn(have 6 stuffed piglets for activation control etc...) and then just using plink + soulstones to keep ophelia alive when he retaliates. Something that counters snipers well might be worth considering like the pigapult if the board is full of line of sight blockers(beware hans though) or rami if there is alot of lanes of line of sight as he can usually outrange other snipers. The pigapult is quite a solid choice vs outcasts in general, it will decimate viktorias, threaten Leveticus waifs, Give jackdaw a hardtime if you can either give it + flips(earl burns) fast(Sparks) or no -flips (big brain brin...upcoming model) . just don't take it when playing collect the bounty... When it comes to somer teeth though I must admit I fail when playing him in his summon version... I've had quite some luck when playing him in an elite crew. His skeeters should be excellent at shutting hans down, but trappers will be harder(they have some sort of 0 action push right?)... I'll just let some one who plays somer better talk about him^^
  6. Thank you for an amazing tournament. Deffo coming back next year if i get the chance.
  7. Swine-cursed in limbo?

    Have you guys seen that some box art contain a third swine cursed havr been popping up? Maybe box is delayed due to them adding another model to it?
  8. a shift I'd love to see is francois losing his infinity trigger on shooting and his brother raphael gaining it... would balance both those 2 models abit. it's sorta unfair that franc copied bot santiagos shooting and fransiscos melee while raphael only got the running away part of nino
  9. Just a thought. Would a gator be viable in a zoraida crew to paralyse a voodoo doll? Add mctavish to the mix and you got yourself something that both helps zoraida with her paralyse tech and assists mctavish
  10. "Hard to master": which is hardest?

    I'd say somer is easy to play. But really hard to master. He can do so much, and learning how to properly use all his different abilities takes time. He' way more than just 3 boomstick shots a turn(even though he'd still preform well if that is how you play him).
  11. Misaki's niche?

    I've always found that it's easier to stop the viktorias, killing one usually stops alot of the tricks they can do such as slingshotting blood, sister healing flips and so on. That being said, I see some potential in viktorias... but I think they are alot harder to play properly

    Zipps grab a rope. Him dragging earl. Skeeter ride. First mate leap. Zipps df trigger. Are the zipp ones i was thinking of. But also ever singel form of squeel. Saddle. Trixie luring gremlins. Hitch a ride. Nudge them on. Let mah handle this. Lenny toss. Pigapult launch. Etc. It basically shuts down alot of stuff in almost every crew that makes gremlins good when it comes pushes and places. 'Nekima charged a somer with auto mask on df? Loudest Squeel? I think not' But yeah. Zipp still gets around. But killing him gets easier and he cant move his crew around as well as he is able.
  13. Brewmaster in tournaments

    I see. For me reactivate was the definite dealbreaker. Getting an extra activation out of them litetally doubles their effectiveness. But as i said in my initial post... i am sad to say i'd never bring either to a tournament At 6 p you can instead get a rooster rider. Cast swill on your intended target and then obey a rooster rider to charge and that feathered monstrosity will bring some pretty sweet carnage Or better yet. Go 10t and get access to yadunori

    Afraid i wouldnt know. I just play gremlins... and i always know what merc i save my red joker on dumb luck damage for...^^

    I Think Anna Lovelace is a solid pick if you ever face gremlins, Especially against Zipp, it shuts his movement down quite significantly
