Updated the full stat of all models in case(a very rare case) that anyone is interested to play with them.🙃
Had a game with them last weekend. They are annoying but not unbeatable. I think they are good enough for causal game if both players want to try something new.
I love AP daydreams for dreamer 1 and take them every time.
For Dreamer 2 it can be a little redundant, and I also think they're high priority models to kill.
In my last game I killed both his daydreams by turn 2 I think it was to slow down his card engine.
In my experience the enemy is usually too busy with the giant stuffed teddy bears and shapeless monstrosities to worry about tiny daydreams behind your lines. It’s usually not so great action economywise to go after the 3(5) stone insignificant minion. And you’ll want that extra mobility to be available.
I think, I only ever lost an AP Daydream once, and that was by turn 4, where it’s fairly irrelevant.
Another great target for AP is the Insidious Madnesses. They’re fast, they’re tough, they’ve got healing built in etc.
Hi! I know this thread is old, but if you're still searching for games out west people tend to gravitate towards Midian (store in Ravenhall) but their opening times are patchy. We've got a small community forming via facebook for wargames in general, and there's a handful of Malifaux 3E players that regularly attend a club night every thursday. Its at a brewery in spotswood, if you search "Westgate Wargaming Club" on facebook you can join the group. Myself and one other malifaux player go every week so we almost guarantee a M3E game each time.
A great deal of NB players swear by Ancient Pact, but I almost never take it with this master. Dreamer2 gives you plenty of 'card draw,' and I deliberately make sure I never need to have first activation (where possible). Often I want second activation for scheming, or I'm not fussed with either. I found the upgrades on the Daydreams made them too much of a target and would rather have them alive - Lucid Dreaming and Leading my Nightmares around. At the end of the day, I like having lots of models on the board.
@Regelridderen - that is a fiendishly good idea and something I will look forward to using. I would make sure there is at least one WP 5 or less non-minion to make the summon more guaranteed.
*Edit you can hide the Daydreams, but then you don't get the awesome Lead Nightmare as much.
