Recommended Posts

All general Assets and Stratagems are now known!  The only secrets left to see are the ECB Black Ops and Cinnamon :)

We know what the ECB Black Ops do!  And wow, what a unit :D Knocking Down the Pillars of Reality seems unreliable but potentially amazing, especially with no TN to hit and no duel to succeed in!

And I'm back!

Well, there have been some pretty awesome reveals so far, the Black ops seem like they will be very effective, at east if you can find the scrip to afford them, the raving madman will help the cult models reach glory even faster than they do now (I watched the starter box video, wow) and breaching summoning doomcallers? That feels like a pretty good deal. Horo seems pretty cool, and Gorsyche's upgrades look pretty awesome, but I am honestly the most interested in Nguyen, and how syndicates will work.

And we officially have the stats on every Cult model going into the end of the Kickstarter!  Wow, does Cinnamon look good or what? :D

As much as "Is that... Cinnamon?" (Cinnamon's ability that models within six' as well as himself cant use moral actions) is a cool nod to the forum community, I honestly find that it just doesn't fit very well. It's an obscure reference that few will actually get, and isn't funny all on it's own.  It also doesn't make much sense as an ability either unfortunately.

Why not: "No, it's a giant flaming rhino" or Smells like burnt toast

I kind of assumed that "Is That... Cinnamon?" was referencing the smell of cinnamon in the air rather than all opponents knowing it to be a famous rhino named Cinnamon, but as Parker says the fluff can fix that pretty easily.

That makes much more sense than what I originally though (I thought it was referring to his name too).  Maybe "Can you smell... Cinnamon?" would be better?

Can you smell what the Wyrd is cooking!?

He may be not technically Cult, but we have Binh Nguyen's card so I threw it onto here lol.  Sounds like he's quite the beast in melee, and getting us an extra 2 Tactics Tokens when he's in Glory is great!

He sure is!  The new design is very slick, I think I like the faction logo more in the bottom right rather than top left, since it currently takes up a fair bit of space on the model's portrait but having the cost and whether it's a unique model be more clear and visible is a nice touch :)

I'm almost certain Glory will at some point be left out of the backside, as we get to understand that the side without art is the Glory side ;)

Other than that, I had some discussion before but would still love to see the cost on the frontside next to the name so I can browse cards quickly for army builds. 

Nontheless the design looks awesome.

Apart from the Stratagem design... That cost needs an Icon aswell (I feel).

I have a question about Goryshche- Titans can attach up to three assets before the game and since our little monster can discard a card to attach snapping head asset does it mean that it can go above standard limit of three assets attached?

However while in Glory, you can throw away a Scrapped Asset to draw a card, then use it (or a worse card already in your hand) to regrow a Snapping Head so you can't get stuck with just Scrap.

I was hoping that it can attach assets above limit. So in that case, is fast regeneration worth considering over additional head? Or maybe some other assets are nice for Gornyshche? 

 

Another question is about Deranged Laughter Stratagem- it says that when you discard one or more Jokers yo gain 1 VP. Isn't RJ a card with value 14 and any suit so it would be drawn anyway?

Yeah. Snapping heads isn't that good by itself. You need multiples to make it really work. So, if you want to run other upgrades on the Goryshche, Fast Regeneration is pretty awesome. Sure, you can replace Splitting Tails, but that +3 Speed may wind up being more valuable than growing a new head.

Red Joker: I think it lets you choose a suit, but doesn't inherently have a suit itself.

The Gorysche has multiple fantastic Assets asside from the multiple heads :D 

Deranged Laughter seeing a Red Joker can indeed gain you one VP and draw it. While it is any suit, you still have to choose one suit for it.
