Most of the crew sticks around Lucius, to empower Mr. Graves and Doppelganger to beat face and cripple the opponent's ability to hit back, while Vogel runs schemes and eats other runners. Candy (and the Terracotta Warrior by shunting damage) keeps the main group healthy, and acts as a layer of protection for the Lucius command bubble with her control abilities. Doppelganger will just need to stick close to The Scribe for defense.
Terracotta Warrior and Mr. Tannen share th
When I got back into the game last month, my fiance (now wife) picked up the Misaki box and a couple of snipers. Now that we have some free-time, I've been able to test some of my theory crafting against this killy crew. Most people, when they see a problem like this, they look at the rest of the faction and say, "What can my faction bring to solve this problem?" Prone, as I am, to the Mimic sub-faction, my answers must be found there. Mimics are a control crew that requires a lot of finesse,
I've determined that these models and upgrades are essential to my version of the Neverborn Lucius crew.

This allows for some interesting variations: featuring one of two high cost models (Candy or Mysterious Emissary) or a mix of mid to low cost models and upgrades (Beckoner/Tannen/Retribut
*This is just a fun "in-character" ledger detailing the acquisition of my Amalgamation Charter Enforcement crew.
March 2rd: Construction started on our "Brutal Emissary" after the required materials arrived from the various 3rd party manufacturing companies used to obscure the project's existance. Reviewed and modified the project plans to ensure the most efficient end product. The excess material will be put aside for future projects.
March 4th: Our department fund
Much to my personal surprise, I have decided to make Pandora my second permanent Master. I was considering McMourning (to lead Dr. Grimwell's crack team of tortur...medical professionals) or Hamelin (for philosophical reasons), but the Empire of the Mind is my first love and I was loathe to leave it's mistress wanting for attention when the time came to put the money down. I look forward to propping up a Performer in the role of the Doppelganger as Lucius and Pandora are both fond of them, and I
I have a great affection toward alternate history, and the effects of advanced technology on cultures from various eras. For a time I was deep into Steampunk, on speaking terms with various influential figures and such. Aside from my infatuation with Coppelius, this was the reason my first Master was C. Hoffman. And partially why I'm returning to him.
No matter what alternative era you find yourself in, it seems that the resulting technological anachronisms exist ubiquitiously. Malifaux may
There's something that gets under my skin, heh, when I theory craft my Lucius crew and I find non-mimics therein. Certainly, you can't go wrong with Austringers or Riflemen, or whatever you feel like taking. But, the point is, I don't feel like taking them. Personally, I feel that the sole purpose for Lucius to take 'Surprisingly Loyal' is to run Guild Lawyers under the Neverborn flag. Each Neverborn Master represents a facet of Neverborn culture and how it interacts with human society, usua
Due to the lack of local Henchmen, and the attendant lack of organized play, I've decided to step in. I picked the starter Nephilim, with Candy, Doppleganger, and two Sorrows for my demo crews. Sure, I have Grimwell's asylum staff, but I don't use them in regular play-and I'd like to improve my game with the models I'm consistently fielding. It's also incentive to paint my Pandora crew.
I suppose I can hope for 5ss Neverborn Mimics to be released in the future. Or for a dual faction Mimic H
In anticipation of tomorrow's miniatures delivery, which is the only thing happening, I'm up late working on a some crew lists. Backstab off of Conflux of Tyranny grabbed my interest, as no one seems to be paying attention to it. Here are my thoughts on the matter:
We start Lucius with Mysterious Emissary and Conflux of Tyranny for Backstab. Backstab wants Lucius to activate late in the turn, and encourages draining your opponent's hand with it's trigger. Fortunately, that 10ss Emissary mak
I sat on my No Shelter Here box for over a year, but last night I finally finished putting it together and basing the models. What I wanted was to buy another Master to sharpen my skills against, i.e. McMourning, but there was Pandora, patiently waiting. I'm excited to find a purpose for Lucius' Legalese too.
At this point, I need to pick up another foam tray, temporarily moved all the Guardsmen models I don't use to the bookshelf for safe keeping until then. I can't find it in myself to ru
I'm excited about Vogel. So I'll need to pick him up, along with a box of Terracotta Warriors (as I'm getting bored of my proxy models). I'm also of the mind to rebase my primary crew with the new basing kits, or the like, give them a little more character.
It's a shame that Jury isn't NB Lucius friendly, I so love fees. I could run a Guild courtroom list, but it seems like Lady Justice would be a better Master for that.
