  1. What experience do people have hiring Anna Lovelace as a Merc. in their crews, and which Masters have you paired her with? picked her up as she seems really strong for the area denial of push and placement effects, and rush of magic added to boot. She has a decent gun with the limited potential of summoning, i'd probably go with Seishin as they can teleport to my master and be a LOS blocking wall.
  2. (Pix is a direct link from wargamevault) 1. Can an enemy placement effect ever "teleport" Anna Lovelace? Specifically the two possible ways that could do this - Lilith and Titania, i'll use Titania as the example. If Titania standing at her max range (of 8 inches) could she hit Anna with her Audience with the Queen ability to then place Anna into base contact with her on the opposite side (30 mm+8 inches away from Anna's originally location). Basically the question comes down to how does her aura work when its being "placed". Here's an example: Before: Anna Titania (A) 7.9 inches (T) Potential after Original Anna Titania New Anna Position (A) 7.9 inches (T)(A)
  3. General rules about aura/pulse say: "A model cannot be affected by an aura or pulse that emanates from a location out of LOS". But I noticed that there are some situations where some auras seems not responding to los rules. Let's make two examples: 1- Mei Feng's "Vent Steam": "Until the beginning of this model's next Activation, all Sh and Ca Attack Actions taken against models within a4 suffer [-]". Now, usually, auras and pulses affect models within range. But Vent Steam don't say models within 4" get a condition/ability/other. So models inside the Vent Steam aura are nit affected from the ability. Models affected are those that are trying to target someone inside the aura, and usually they will be outside the aura itself. So, by raw, are the targetting models that should have los to point of origin, that'sis different from how I always seen play it around. The fact that attacking models needs to see Mei Feng to get the malus make very simple to avoid suffering the effect making this ability almost completely unuseful. This is in my opinion clearly against the intended effect... 2- Anna Lovelace's "Gravity Well": "Enemy models may not end placement effects within a8 unless that effect was generated by a bury effect, summon effect, or a model in this Crew." I think the clear intent of this ability is to block all place effects within 8". Particularly against masters like Lilith. Simple. But how it works about los? If you consider the los of the placed model after the placing, the ability doesn't work. In fact, it's enough to make a place just behind a model with HT2 or higher to avoid the effect. Not counting the fact that seems very unfriendly to consider the los from that point since the placed model is not there until the place is done, but the effect should prevent the place effect... If you consider the los of the placing model before the place took effect, the ability doesn't work again. In fact, it's very easy to screen the los with some trick (another model, an illusory forest, etc). Overmore, also in this case, the aura should affect a model outside the aura itself, that is not how the rules are written. So, the best way to play it seems simply ignoring los. But the rules are written in a way that don't consider a situation without los evaluation.... IMVVHO, it's wrong the basic general rule about los in all pulses/auras. It would be enough to specify for each single aura/pulse if you need los or not. Another rule that creates confusion is the specification that a model of 30mm base can block los between two same based models. And the further specification that is teorically possible but is very difficult to do in pratical means only more debate and uncertainty. It would be much better if the rule would be "a model cannot screen another model with same base size"... But now the point is, how is legal to play Anna Lovelace in tournament?
  4. Our Collective Impending Doom

    You guys, I am afraid of a certain henchwoman who's model will be hitting the tables more and more soon. I am talking about one Anna Lovelace and her potentially oppressive 8" aura of anti-movement-trick. We have an incredible number of models who not only have pushes and places that Anna will interrupt, but these are models who's utility is hinged in many ways on being able to get these pushes. We have 4 Masters out of 7 (Shenlong, McCabe, Yan Lo, Mei Fang) who get a lot of utility out of pushes/places, and there are probably 10,000 hireable models who either need these pushes to be maximized (Yu, tengu, 10T Brothers, Shadow Emissary, Lone Swordsman/jorogumo/high river monks, wandering river monks, torakage...this is all off the top of my head, I'm sure I'm missing some). Having a 9 wound soulstone user with armor that can stop these models from being able to set up out charges, shots, and schemes is going to be no laughing matter, I fear. So, if Anna joins Johan as the most popular mercs seen on the table, what thoughts do we all have for how to deal with her? With a gun that has weak damage 3 she is representing a threat to our models as well as our movement, and with her defensive capabilities it will take some work to take her down. Do we try to kill her? Develop ways to avoid her? Does anybody here have any practical experience with combatting her?
  5. Now.. there always has to be one and unfortunately on this occasion it has to be me. Now I'm trying to drum up some extra interest in Malifaux, and I was thinking, as our group is experienced in playing Necromunda and Mordheim and other campaign systems, Shifting Loyalties would be a good place to start, with the small crew builds and not so many upgrades... Anywho... I was really interested in doing a Freikorps crew but with Lovelace as the leader... The question I am asking is... If I declare my faction as Outcasts would I then be able to take Anna as the leader if I pay the merc tax for here...
  6. Mercing Anna into a Levi Crew?

    So I just got the Salvage and Logistics crew box and have played two 50 SS games. I decimated the Latigos in the first one and got shut down by Ramos in the second. Both opponents only tweaked their box crews with a model or two; 2 Pistoleros for Perdita, and JoJo (Johanna) instead of Howard for Ramos. In the first game I put Desolate Soul on both Levi and Alice and didn't take either Pariah. I merced two Performers instead (making them pull capable anchors that gave out slow). The second, I took Pariah of Bone instead and brought the Valedictorian and a Dead Doxy. Up till now I've played Rezer and I have to say, I had more fun in these last two games than I ever did with any Rezer crew. Sometimes the Rezers feel like I'm pulling teeth to get them to function. Anywho.... I'm looking over Anna Lovelace and I'm thinking, "Wouldn't it be fun to have Alice and Anna hanging out together, babysitting waifs, throwing their attacks around while enemies can't push, charge, or place within 3!" Obviously this would only work for certain strats and schemes where movement across the board is not as important. These girls are both 10 SS hires, abominations don't seem to be super capable of anything but hindrance and horde-ing, and Levi would have to do everything himself (maybe he can). But I wonder if there is a way to make this idea work. Maybe for Protect Territory, Bodyguard, etc. Turf War, Guard The Stash, etc... It also feels weird having Levi's hiring options and still hiring mercenaries. But if it would work! Any ideas?
  7. Anna's Dress

    So Anna's crazy Gravity Well Clockwork Dress, for example: So this obviously stops something like an enemy Francisco using Enfrentate a Mi! to place himself within Anna's aura. Does it also stop an enemy Lust from using Now Kiss! to place a model in Anna's crew within the aura? So is it, enemy models can't be placed but the aura says nothing about placing models friendly to Anna, or is it enemies to Anna can't do anything that causes a place, no matter the target, because that is them doing a 'place effect'? Our local campaign seems to have taken both Anna and Lust into their hearts, and the ladies aren't playing nicely with each other.
