    • I use an airbrush for all the things that an airbrush can do! As you say, Gibbering Hordes have plenty of large areas and, thankfully, no clothes. I still have to use a traditional brush for details, gem-like effects, stripes (or speckles for these guys), eyes, make-up (I put some on all female models) or for surfaces that would require too much masking (Thus defeating the time-saving purpose of the airbrush). For My cult of the burning man models, I try to get the skin tone done mostly through airbrushing, and sometimes leather, but then I have to pick between doing lots of masking or lots of traditional brush painting. If TOS has a "Fault" is that its models are way too beautiful and detailed compared to other wargames. I can paint half a skaven army in the time it takes me to paint a single unit of ECB Black Ops. There are half a dozen TOS backers in my Malifaux meta but, when I ask why we don't get stuff on the table, the answer is invariably "It's too much to paint". That Said, Kumon and Court of two seem pretty airbrush friendly, so I'm pretty happy about that!
    • Great work! Did you use an airbrush? I don't have one of my own (i had to paint mine with a normal brush, like some kind of peasant ), but the Gibbering Hordes seem particularly well suited to airbrushing.
    • I know the thread is about a Daw crew, but I'm wondering if this wouldn't be great for a Parker crew. A pair/trio of Guilty, shoot them up with Bandits, especially the  flipper (more chance of flipping the ), drop 4 or 6 Enemy Scheme Markers in a tight cluster, have Parker "Cash Out" for 4/6SS. And have 2 or 3 Guilty ready to keel over to a stiff breeze from opposing models.  Only really in the crap if you flip a RJ in there somewhere. And it's a hefty investment in the first place. But still...
    • Ressers seem to have quite strong matchups with Neverborn in general, so perhaps avoid those. That said, the dominant factor in Malifaux is definitely skill, so you can take what you like really. Especially in casual games where you're probably not optimising lists anyway. EDIT: that said, Dreamer is super, super strong. I wouldn't suggest holding back, he will be winning a lot of games with Dreamer I suspect!
    • Size: 50 - Pool: 3Leader:  Von SchillTotem(s):  Steam TrunkHires:  Arik Schöttemer  Hannah Lovelace  Hodgepodge Effigy  Freikorps Engineer  Freikorps Scout   Midnight Stalker    Soldier for Hire   It was Symbols of Authority  vs Sandeep Took Martyrs and Take Prisoner. Unfortunately the Scout died from Burning and the Engineer lost his 4th wounds so it ended up with 5:5 (I had 4 for strat and 1 for Take Prisoner, opponent had 2 for Martyrs, 2 for strat and 1 for Claim Jump). It was my second Freikorps game and I\m slowly figuring out how to play them!
