    Yan Lo Tactica?

    Searched a bit, didn't found anything that could satisfy my curiosity. So here I am, asking you: what's a typical Yan Lo build? What's his general plan? What is he supposed to do? I see him (looking at cards) as a bruiser that can disrupt your opponent's plans. Am I wrong? Help me understanding my new Master for a virtual hug.

    Pandora for Fixed List Tourney

    Hi all, I'm planning to attend a fixed list 50ss tournament this weekend following the GG18 strats & schemes for March. The crew I'm thinking about running is below but there are a few things that I could use some advice on.. 1. I'm thinking Barbaros with Challenge will keep Pandora alive longer and he can run interference for her, but is it possibly overkill? I haven't tried this combo yet. 2. Should I consider bringing the Emissary/Johan for Condition removal? What would I swap for him? 50 SS Neverborn Crew - Melee 'Dora Pandora + 5 Pool - The Box Opens (2) - Fears Given Form (1) - Aether Connection (1) Barbaros (10) Cyclops (8) - A Thousand Faces (1) Lilitu (7) Baby Kade (6) - Depression (1) Iggy (5) - Malifaux Provides (1) Bloodwretch (5) <- I don't have insidious madness yet Is there anything else you'd call out that I should consider? Any feedback will be super appreciated. Thanks!

    Ply with Booze

    I've always been the kind of player that builds a crew from scratch for any given set of strats and schemes, just because there are so many variables involved. However, with the paired schemes in GG2018, I'm starting to build a core list for each strategy; if I have a crew that I think can comfortably manage the strat and the paired scheme, I feel comfortable that I can probably find another scheme that I can manage with that crew (with appropriate tweaks as needed) in any scheme pool. In most cases, I can put together something I feel good about with one of my Big Three masters (Asami, Lynch, and Yan Lo). However, the more I look at Ply for Information, the more I feel like Brewmaster might be a really good choice. Drinking Contest cuts down on the number of Ply attempts against your crew, and a Performer can pull the enemies into range (and/or use A Sip of Wine if needed). Sensei Yu can provide a second bubble as well as some mobility. Fingers is expensive, but the Chatty bubble is great in Ply, and I Saws it First can ruin someone's day if they have taken Surround Them. Chiaki provides ranged condition removal (that targets Wp) if the opponent's Ply does get through. Take some subset of these guys and fill out the crew with a few cheap minions (Akaname/Fermented River Monks/Moon Shinobi/Tanuki/10T Brothers) to taste as appropriate for the opponent, table, and other schemes. The main problem is that we need a good bouncer in case a bar fight breaks out. Yasunori is awesome with Brewie and Pick Yer Poison, but he's really pricey these days. We have plenty of options in the 8-9ss range, so I'm sure I can find someone workable, but SS are (as always) tight. Has anyone experimented with Brewie in Ply? Any recommendations, gotchas, notable successes or failures?

  9. Hey guys, after a long break (played a lot of 10T lately), I decided to give my Outcasts a try in GG18. Unfortunately, I don't own so much, so I haven't a real flexibility in builds. The rolled Strategy and Schemes are these: Ply For Information (we decided to play Extraction, just to change a bit) Surround Them Inescapable Trap Public Demonstration Hold Up Their Forces Vendetta Given I own Hamelin, Parker, Jack Daw and some random stuff, what are your advises about the game? Is Hamelin able to play into these Schemes? I know he's really powerful and can do almost everything, but don't know. By the way, I thought to go for Hold Up Their Forces and another one (Surround Them or Vendetta, probably), 'cause I think Montresor will shine into Hold Up. What can be an efficient runner? The Midnight Stalker? Thanks in advance.

    Wishlisting for 10T

    Wanted to start a discussion about what changes or wishlisting we'd like to see inside the Faction. Spreading ideas is never a bad thing. I will start with a list of models I regularly play or own, and everyone can add their preferences: The Brewmaster: add him Infiltration Tri-Chi, change some of his Upgrades into something useful. The Good Stuff is just horrible. Ama No Zako: she wants to punch stuff, Ml 6 will be enough. Sidir Alchibal: one of my favorite models in the Faction, I just don't know what his role is supposed to do. Slow, no tanking abilities (but he wants to tank, medium base + By Your Side), his damage output is nothing to write home about. Probably, the best choices for him will be Bulletproof +1 and/or Hard To Kill. Guild Pathfinder: stripping out the suit from his Set The Trap ability, done. Monk of High River: damage spread up to 2/3/4 or a longer threat. The cost reduction was good tho. Tengu: Df and Wp 5 maybe? Thunder Archer: Df 5, good cost right now. Wastrel: oh Jesus, lovely models, but here there's a lot to do in my opinion. They can walk to get Defensive +1, but with Df 4, it doesn't seem a strong deal. They're on the slow side, so they can't run efficiently (except for the trigger on Cast-Offs, which I consider an incredible ability), they can't tank enough, and they're damage spread is good just thanks to two triggers from a 2 Ap Action. They can be a lot better than this, just with some devices. What are your ideas guys? What would you like to see?
  11. In my opinion, the last weeks have been pretty meh for us gremlins players since the toys we got in book 5 seemed to be a lot less exciting compared to what other factions got. While the general problem of our factions isn't really top end balance but is internal balance I still had a feeling we would drop quiet a bit in top end power since some factions got quiet a bit better while we pretty much stayed the same. After playing some gg18 tho I have a feeling that we got some models that are just right for the new strats and schemes. Also some existing models just jump up a huge bit in the power curve when it comes to gg18. So what I've noticed is: - gg18 has a whole lot more interaction based things and this includes Strategies. Headhunter was always a good thing for gremlins, since we got the ap to do this pretty well and also a lot of heads dropped in a gremlingame. - GG18 brings us a strategy that is fully based on model to model interaction (ply for information) and two strategies based on marker interaction and engagement (symbols of authoroty) (supply wagons). - Ply for information favors ap and survivability, which balances it for bayou gremlins but things like the new gatreau bokor protection buff is a huge gain in this scenario. - Symbols of Authoroty and supply wagons need protection of your own markers via engagement and pushes to keep them away and things like dont mind me become really really powerfull in this scenario. Also agile seems really usefull in this scenario. (maybe the new wong upgrade is better than we thaught) (fingers...) What do you think about gg18 and gremlins? Of course there are changes to come, but since the playtesting just made a larger step to a new version it feels like at least parts of the current state will carry over into the final gg18.

  14. I had the pleasure to attend the Capital City Winter Murderland tournament, held at The Historic Haven in downtown Frederick, MD on January 13th and 14th. It was a trios event, and you can find the tournament pack here. The team aspect came into play where each team would declare Factions, select Masters, then go through a pairing process to determine whom played whom. Team rules were light, with the exception of no doubling up on faction, and no doubling up on cross-faction masters in a round (ex. no Resurrectionist Tara and Outcast Tara in the same round). My team was the Vegan Zombies, named after a pun ("What to we want?" "GRAAAAINS") and consisted of myself playing Outcasts, and two of my regular opponents bringing Guild and Resurrectionists. Leading up to the tournament, we each decided to focus on a small pool of masters. We figured that by focusing on a few masters, we'd be more familiar with them in the context of the tournament. I brought Parker Barrows, Tara and the Viktorias. Our Guild player brought Nellie and Perdita, and our Resurrectionist player brought Molly, Kirai and Yan Lo. I'll be posting each round below as a separate post, but will be linking them all here. Then, I'll have a post for my final thoughts on the event. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I appreciate any input/ comments you may have! Round 1 - Parker Barrows vs. Pandora Round 2 - Parker Barrows vs. Wong Round 3 - Parker Barrows vs. Lady Justice Round 4 - Tara vs. Ulix Round 5 - Parker Barrows vs. Lilith Final Thoughts

    Educate me on Molly

    Just started getting in to Molly, and really enjoying her despite the first few outings being more error than trial. I see a lot of information out there on Horror Molly, and believe I get the concept even if application is currently in development. Nuance aside, I understand the general Horror game plan to be: Taxi Molly and some big horrors up field turn 1 (with any combination of sybelle/kentoroi/doxy/mortimer/necrotic). Summon punk zombies/killjoy to soften enemy and pin them in their backfield as best possible, before archie/rogue necros arrive to remove key models and cripple the crew. Hopefully that scored you some VP. Finish up strat and schemes. Spirit Molly I am less clear on. My instinct is for a more defensive game plan (hard to be more aggressive than horror I guess). Use belles/jaakuna buffed by sybelle/emissary to lure models out of position to be summon caddies, then finish with izamu + datsue ba/emissary. Toolbox summon - hanged for big pressure, goryo/shikome as 'cheaper' shock troops, onryo/gaki as speed bumps or scheme runners. Less elite starting crew and fewer summons directly into enemy crew should make normal scheme running easier. Am I far off the mark? In what situations do you take Spirit Molly, and what do you tend to find the crew doing? Also, I'm really liking gg18 prototype, big fan of the always schemes being strat suit dependent. However, is it me or does Molly's desire to summon low health models into the enemy's face seem to struggle in 3 out 4 of the strats? Making use of her core mechanic in Ply and Public seems like actively feeding your opponent points, whilst in Ours it doesn't easily contribute to scoring (totally fine with this change) in a scenario where the enemy is usually incentivized to spread out. The fact the associated always schemes seem okay for her doesn't feel like it really balances.

    Tonight's game

    Symbols of Authority - Punish The Weak - Covert Breakthrough - Take Prisoner - Hold Up Their Forces - Inescapable Trap Tonight I'll face a friend of mine with Arcanists. Pointed on Mei Feng and Brewmaster as my possible choices: what do you suggest to take with them as list? Mei is probably good with Punish The Weak and Hold Up Their Forces. Fingers could be good in Covert Breakthrough. Both the Masters (better Brewie) can isolate enemy models to score easier on Take Prisoner.

    Hamelin in Ours

    I was reflecting on the GG18 for my Masters (Hamelin, Jack and Parker) and, all of a sudden, I came with this revelation: is Hamelin effectively weak in Ours? The whole game of Hamelin is about cycling, and with cycling you summon constantly new models. The things you play with him surely follow this road: Abominations, Desolation Engine, Ashes & Dust, Rat Kings, Rat Catchers, Stolen. How is my Tyrant supposed to play into this Strategy? Help me guys and you'll get a slice of cheese.

    Tomorrow game advises

    I started Gremlins a week ago or so (I own Brewie, Zipp and Som'er), and now with my mates we're playing using the GG18. I'll be playing Gremlins, my opponent Arcanists. We've generated randomly the Encouter: SYMBOLS OF AUTHORITY; Standard Deployment - Punish The Weak - Search The Ruins - Set Up - Inescapable Trap - Dig Their Graves Right now, I'm more headed towards Brewmaster, 'cause I want to test him in Faction as I always used him as 10T, but Zipp can be the right choice too, or Som'er. The reasoning behind the BMaster in this setup is 'cause I can place the Symbols relatively close to each other, and oblige my opponent to come at me and stay inside my bubbles. For Punish The Weak, I think that I can go for a killy crew, but I need Interacts for the Strategy and the other Schemes. Maybe Fingers + Burt + Golem? First Mate to push enemies around? What do you suggest guys?
