    Dual masters will show up in both books, as well as Faction Decks. Dead Mans Hand models will be available via Faction Decks as well as downloadable online. And no, most of yall who have been tossing out prices are still considerably off. Yes, eventually they will all become available as PDF books. Only the core rulebook and stat cards are being translated. Fluff and the like is not. If you're concerned about the translations, take a look at the free TOS rules/translations and go from there. We learned our lessons there and worked with professionals instead of enthusiasts or quite bluntly, folks talking out their asses and not delivering. For those hoppin' and hollerin' about the number of books and being forced to purchase and that this is an outright money grab - well, you are entitled to your opinion of course. That being said, the rules, and cards, in multiple languages, are going to be available 100% free. You don't need to spend a dime in the least if you don't wish in order to transition to M3E. Lastly, if we had crammed everything into one book, that would have been spendy - not to mention heavy enough to bludgeon someone to death with.

    Hah .... no. They aren't all going to be gold gilded lay flat hard-back books. Doesn't even get close to that price. We've not announced prices as of yet, that'll come here shortly as we finish up a few things. That being said, rules, cards, etc - all released for free online. No one has to spend a dime on any of it if they don't care to. Now if you want nicer books, professionally printed stat cards that are coated, additional background, etc - you have other options available.

    Here is my Diorama, that took me quite some time !Nk But it was meant to be a gift, so I'm not sure I'll be able to use it in my monthly pledge... Anyway, I should be able to paint several things, enough to end the month with my pledge. Wish me luck !

    @Athiko - really like the use of blue on these, it adds a nice element of contrast to pale skin. @Chou - nice, clean paintjob on the family. And definitely get a LED-light whitebox, can't go wrong with it! @OctaBit - nice selection, the Warped are my favorites, really like these models! @bedjy - the fur on Tanuki looks excellent and the bright colors you've used work really well there. The diorama looks great too! @Phinn - that actually looks like a mini diorama, great job! @Kimberly - nice looking terrain you have there, I'm sure it will draw many looks at Adepticon @Caedrus - I think many Polish painters paint this very special kind of water with some extra % in it, this may be the key here! And you can add 24ss to my pledge this month :) And I really like your Acolytes, blue isn't easy to work with on larger flat surfaces but their cloaks look great here! @Nikodemus - nice highlights on red skin, like the contrast with black spider body. @Stranglelove - Rhino is my favorite here by far, great model and you've done it justice with excellent brushwork. @emiba - looking really good, two more day to finish so keep at it ;) @Franchute - the base looks great, as always, now just finish the mini :) @lusciousmccabe - both the base and mini look very good, nice and clean paintjob. @prof_bycid - love the vivid shades of green/yellow, they suit this model so well! @wobbly_goggy - sweet paintjob on the Fire Golem. Working all those flames up can be a daunting task (been there!) but you've made it shine ;) Once again, I'm more at home than I'd like to and currently going through third antibiotic cycle. The only good thing is I had a bit more time so I finished four more minis for extra 24ss. More pics on the blog: http://www.whatthefaux.net/2019/03/razorspine-rattlers.html

    In under the wire for March...didn't get as much as I wanted done but managed to finish another five figures from my TOS kickstarter haul....it's been a hectic month and I STILL haven't had a chance to go over all the entries for this month and leave praise for all the excellent models I skimmed through to get to this page...but I most certainly will next week when I free up again...and so... @Caedrus here are my finished models for March.....5 of The Broken from TOS ....and here they are on their movement tray Here is my completed fire team of The Broken

    @Diddick - love the colors on this one. So completely different than my "gritty" approach when it comes to undead minis but painted consistently to a very high level. @muraki - such cool minis and I like the bright colors you've used here. These are by far the coolest versions in the range. They eyes seem a bit off but this still works in terms of Manga-like overall aesthetics @Caedrus - nice start on the conversion. I envy people skilled enough to tackle complex projects with GS. I can basically only do gap-filling and hair/fur sculpting. The NMM on containers looks great and the blades are just amazing! I've finished the Cerberuses so together with 16ss for two Samurai I am now at 34ss for April. I decided to use blue for the most part as I've always struggled with this color on larger surfaces. It was a little easier here as there is some fur texture on the main body to serve as guidance. I started with some general highlights on the body, making sure to leave enough dark blue in the recesses. Following that, I kept adding numerous thin brushstrokes in gradually brighter colors to build up the fur texture. It was a very lengthy and tedious process but it was a good practice for sure. I added some touches of brown/dark red and glazes of light blue and green to keep it more "natural" (as much as this word can be used to talk about blue fur of a three headed Tiger). I also thought that blue would nicely contrast with a predominantly green base. I'd like to start on Myranda but I'm still waiting for the paints to paint her skin to look like a Native-American. As always, more pictures on my blog http://www.whatthefaux.net/2019/04/tyger-tyger-burning-bright.html

    Caedrus, reporting in with a WIP! My amateurish sculpting skills are evident in this Recruiter WIP: ...but I've been quite pleased with my Executioner. He's nearly finished, so here's a sneak peek! Comments and feedback is always welcome! I hope you're having a great April! Caedrus.

    Decided that this month was going to be about Mercs, so I started with the season specific viks to get ready for Easter. Trying to decide how many other viks I should paint... Think I have 4 versions ha.

    @Caedrus I finished Fitzsimmons for 8ss, meaning that I will have painted 22 stones in March: Before you claim that the highlights in the back are amazing, let me tell you that there are some actual reflexion of light from my lamp. Sorry for the bad quality of the picture. And just because @misterfinn asked, here are some better (I hope) pictures of Mouse:

    Hey Wyrdos, This week, we found Waldo cleaning. Yes, cleaning. We couldn’t believe it either. As it turns out, when no one is around to watch the stuff you set on fire burn to ash, it isn’t nearly as much fun. With us at GAMA last week showing off some of the fantastic stuff we have in store for 2019, Waldo was driven to absolute boredom - to the extent that he resorted to cleaning up the place. But now that we’re back, he wanted to see some of the new stuff that we’re planning on for the future of Malifaux (before he sets it all on fire, of course). The beta for Malifaux Third Edition is coming to a close (finally!). As we’re wrapping up stats and abilities on some of your favorite models, we figured it would be a great time to show you what else will be coming alongside the release of Malifaux Third Edition. So, in addition to new boxes, sculpts, models, cards, rules, and ways to play, we are also releasing new Malifaux books. That’s right, books, as in plural. Many, many books. So many books that we might be building a book fort in the offices. One book per Faction will be hitting store shelves either at Malifaux Third Edition’s launch or shortly thereafter (we’ll be staggering book releases a tad, but don’t worry – all of the information you’ll need to play will be immediately available). Across all of the books, we’ll be covering new characters, art, bios, and stories (so many stories!). These stories will push the lore and world in new and exciting (sometimes scary) directions, further expanding what we’ve grown familiar. Dig deep enough into them and you’re sure to find a secret or seven along the way. Some are more obvious than others. So, this week, Waldo wanted to reveal just what those books will look like. Here are the covers of all seven Faction books! Above all else, though, the most important book to own is the rulebook, which will be available immediately upon Third Edition’s launch, either on our website for free or on store shelves in print. So that’s eight books in total! Now, with all of this “launch” and “release” talk, you might be wondering when. Well, wonder no more, because Malifaux Third Edition will be available… Next week, we’ll be at Adepticon, so Waldo will be too occupied keeping the office from setting itself on fire, so we’ll be giving him another week off. Once we get back, we’ll have more awesome stuff to show off and talk about! See you then.

    Hey guys, just a few pics of what I've been up to so far this month. Been speeding up my painting. Less layers and blending but more painted models on the table

    Had a productive day/night and here are first two minis for April's pledge for a total of 16ss.

    Phew, with a few minutes to spare, I give you Ikyrio, an Onryo and a Seishin (that I only now realized is also 0 points in M2E...) So in either edition it comes in at 15 points. Thank you and I hope you like how they turned out. 🙂 For the rest of you, I'm a huge fan of Viruk's painting and his Ikyrio from 2016 has very much been my inspiration for these and will continue to be for the rest of the crew. @Caedrus, thanks, but there's no need for you to be ashamed, you didn't do it and hate and idiocy has no home country and no race. For something more uplifting, here's my 15 points for March, at 11:59pm on March 31.

    Hello! Here are my models for March, pics as always are not that good but they have to do! The family that kills together... Santiago and Papa Loco. Sadly there is too much light to see Papa's straighjacket, I'm considering buying Green Stuff's light box (on the other hand that would take away my favourite excuse to justify my skills, ahahaha). And here are Francisco and Perdita. After finishing her I thought that maybe it wasn't a bright idea giving her the same colour for the jacket and the overall (or whatever is called what she is wearing over her jeans) but in my mind it looked better. * Perdita Ortega: 15 SS * Santiago Ortega: 8 SS * Francisco Ortega: 9 SS * Papa Loco: 7 SS For a total of 39 SS (few models but quite pricey).

    I'll see what we can do. I'm still up to my eyeballs in finishing these books - but yeah - shouldn't be difficult.

    Here is my pledge for March! Just in time for Adepticon. It seems that the points have changed for The Other Side models. Are we retroactively changing points from previous months @Caedrus? If so, my new total points will be at the bottom. (it arrived!) And here are photos of the previously painted units, now based: That's a company! Special thanks to my father, @Magnus for assistance with the basing. Total points for the Monthly Challenge since January: 195 soulstones

    Hey all, Just wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you to everyone for making this beta fun in the face of all the tedium that playing to test instead of playing for fun can be, and for the spirited debate and exchange of ideas, a lot of which were incorporated into the game in both the closed and open betas! I know we didn't get everything perfect, but I think it's safe to say we did a very good job overall, and M3E will be a solid, fun game (even moreso once we've all switched gears from a testing mentality to a playing mentality). So here's to us, and of course, here's to the wonderful design team! Three cheers for Matt and Kyle!

    The second necropunk is complete. This one was suposed to be blanchitsu style, and was WAY faster than the 1st, and I'm quite happy with the results. Just one more to go, I want to try a 3rd style, maybe "Infinity style" but I'm not quite sure i really get what that means 😕

    Tuckbox that they are talking about is paper - like you would get around any deck of cards you buy in the store. In the past, I know that there were plastic storage boxes that could get added in if you didn't uncheck the option. I think we went back in and made certain those weren't even an option any longer, but I do know that it was adding to cost in the past. In the meantime, I have reached out to Onebookshelf about the shipping as frankly, I agree with y'all. I know what it would cost us to ship out a single deck of cards and it shouldn't be anywhere near double the price unless it was going out via FedEx international. Working on it, no clue if we'll be able to affect anything directly about it though.

    Hey, there! I've been painting Malifaux for about two years. I post mainly on instagram and A Wyrd Place facebook group, but as suggested by @thatlatinspeakingguy I'll be posting my Malifaux works in this subgroup as well! I too write sometimes about my work, here is the link if one's curious https://cgwilsonh.wordpress.com/. Let's start with Reva. When I first looked at this model, I noticed that Reva's base has got quite a lot of unused spaces. I saw this as an opportunity to do a semi-diorama like approach for the model (also the works of Johan Hoflin and Davor Brkic (miniature_mutant) really inspired me to do this approach). I made the dead tree by twisting a bundle of wires with some greenstuffs to close gaps. The candles were sculpted greenstuffs, and the gravestone was from Green Stuffs World (I think). This model was a stepping stone for me towards the diorama side of the miniature world.

    @OctaBit Wow our Warped this month came out vary similar colours, I was also painting Crooked Men for my Jack Daw crew, but didn't finish. I think we may be psychically linked!

    Alright here are my models for the month. Original pledge was for three warped, but I ended up painting a bit more. Group shot: Decided not to do the glow on the big guy. My dry brush is pretty much dead. So the osl is going to have to wait till I get a new one, but for now I'm happy with them. Test model for my crow runners, and the last model I need for my Jack Daw crew. Last couple models I need for my Parker Crew. Total comes out to 49 stones. Not particularly happy with the photos. I need to get a better camera. In other news I finished up the last models I needed in order to submit my henchman application.

    Impressive @Stranglelove! @Caedrus finished my pledge for this month with Jorogumo (9ss): Rushed a bit with the skin, but I had to get this one off the desk. Good enough for my purposes. Idea for this guy was Darth Maul from Star Wars Episode I. Hence the red/black/fire motif. Couldn't do a lightsaber so I went for "lava" weapon instead. I quite like the effect, for being my first go at anything like that. Good looking figure. But lengthy and really annoying to paint. Early in the paintjob legs kept getting in the way of my brush. Later when I was drawing the tattoos and such, I had a hard time getting a good, stable grip since there's overhang everywhere because of the legs.
  39. 12 points
    And I'll consider the little guy done for 4ss: @Caedrus this puts me at 14 ss for March do far.

    The rules and stat cards will be translated into seven languages, which will be available for free on our website, just as we did with The Other Side. We already have translation partners that are ready to work with us once the rules are considered final. There is no reason to begin translations earlier than that, as the rules have been changing on a weekly basis, and having our partners keep up to date on every change would make the process more difficult than it needs to be. The translated versions of the rules and stat cards will become available as soon as they are ready.

    Wacky Wednesday Wyrdos! It's me again, with the latest on what's been happening at Wyrd HQ! This week Waldo gathered us all to the break room and made us watch his "magic act." Matt tried to tell him that swallowing things whole and yelling "POOF!" wasn't the same as magic but Waldo didn't seem to care. So now I have to rescue my cat from an imp's stomach. I don't even know how he got a hold of my poor Pumpkin. But before I go off to make that poor life choice, let's talk about a star who can really make some magic, Colette Du Bois! Colette remains just as tricky as ever in M3E. The Df/WP Ability Fade Away paired with Showstopper makes her difficult to keep targeted, and highly mobile. Illusionist encourages your opponent to put some space between this Master when she's Unburied or face some rough repercussions. Colette's Attacks can pile on the Distracted Condition and use that stack of Distracted for tactical advantage. The Presto-Chango and Practiced Choreography Actions allow for the same movement tricks that we all know and love to use (or loathe playing against). Now let's get a look at our head gal at the Star Theater, with this wonderful mobile wallpaper! Now you can take Colette's show on the road!

    Hello, I left behind March with few new small scenics to add to my collection, with the appearence of a strange cat from the deep space and with a lot to projects to go after. As a first thing, my pledge for April will include some terrain: These basements fron TTcombat Streets of Venice are very useful to built some urban play-table crossed by channels and rivers. I have to paint many of them and they come in different sizes: from 10cm to 30 cm. Let's say each of them, but it's dimension, is worth 5 SS? So I could extablish my record score in montly pledge free competition this month. I have begun working some Malifaux models: I should get time to work to completion at least 2 of them. My cat from the deep space is strange in these last days: She spends a lot of time looking the sky..... I realized her spaceship is irreparably damaged. So I decided to assist her and many of my efforts will go after the construction and painting of my DroopFleet Commander Fleet. It's also possible that the cat is indeed an alien spy sent to study our civilization in preparation for a massive alien invasion. Good reason to increase my effort in the building of my space fleet. I'm waiting for some componets from Scibor, Wyrd and TTCombat but their delivery time is not predictable. I could add some extra to my pledge getting them home in time. I wish you all an happy month of painting.

    After 25 months, the time has come: my Diorama is finished. For a very long time I wanted to implement the DOOM cover (first game) as a diorama. And also something similar to Roman Lappat's great "Last Light" in a smaller version. When I started the diorama, I just wanted to use stuff I already had, so the Space Wolve got it against the demons. Otherwise, it has nothing to do with 40K at all. Likewise, I wanted to take it easy. That's why I only slightly modified the demons. But anyway, I have built about a dozen, and only two completely out of the sprue. Very helpful was that I was pretty much at the beginning of the diorama again on Roman's beginner's workshop. I used that to learn to paint white and black. He was able to give me valuable tips for the entire color scheme. My goal was to create a dark, bleak mood. Therefore, there is not so much variance in base and demons. Unfortunately, I can not find my inspirational pictures any more - so you just have to believe that I managed the mood I wanted pretty well. : Wink: From Roman came the idea with the nylon threads on the swords. I think that's really great, so it comes again extremely dynamic in the diorama. And I could visualize the movement as in a comic. The hobby butterfly in me was then responsible for a longer break. And the really good tip from the painting forum, that I should better fill the gap on the skulls of the demons, has brought the project to a standstill. But last year I decided to finish the project. There are supposed to be people who feel really comfortable surrounded by WIPs - I'm not one of them. : D Very, very important to me was the composition of the diorama. Since I have made in advance a lot of thoughts about it: where are priorities, how do I lead the view of the beholder, how do I bring in pure dynamics, etc. Even towards the end, I had for each demon approximately an hour thinking and trying until I was satisfied with its position. When I finished it, I was really happy with the result. You always have such an idea and then do not know how it actually gets. Here I had more of a feeling, or a mood that I wanted to implement. And I think I achieved it pretty well. So, now enough text, here comes what you are all keen on: the pictures! Finally, the question remains, if I want feedback. I'm not sure. I am always happy to receive helpful comments and tips. At the same time, I got a pretty good idea of what I wanted to do and what I did not want to do about the creative process. What does not help me is a comment that e.g. orange to the blue would look great: I know that, but makes a very different mood. :whistling: What I am looking forward to are your thoughts on mood, composition etc. especially with your thoughts on theory - I like to learn. And I also like to answer questions. : Up: And if you do not know what to write: Praise is always welcome. : Thumbsup:

    I've finally had time to finish the peacekeeper. @Caedrus this means I have completed 11 stones so far this month: My eldest daughter got into a fight with him. She managed to cut his harpoon. When I took him back to the arcanist warehouse, Hoffman had to repair it. This explains the piece of meat I added to the harpoon. There is also my fingerprint somewhere on the model 😆 Try to find it 😊

    Rules: 3.22 Deployment: Standard Strategy: Corrupted Idols Schemes: Harness the Ley Lines, Take Prisoner, Deliver a Message, Detonate Charges, & Claim Jump Game Time: 5 Hours Jet’s Ten Thunders (Defender) Jakob Lynch (Leader) Hungering Darkness (Totem) Kitty Dumont 9ss Tannen 6ss 3x Illuminated 21ss 2x Beckoner 10ss Schemes: Detonate Charges & Deliver a Message SS Pool: 4 KingJocko’s Resurrectionists (Attacker) Yan Lo (Leader) Soul Porter (Totem) Izamu 10ss Manos 9ss Yin 8ss Sun Quiang 7ss Chiaki 7ss Gokudo 5ss Schemes: Detonate Charges & Take Prisoner (Beckoner) SS Pool: 3 Turn 1 Lynch wins Initiative and goes first Positioning and placement with some concentrates in between. No direct confrontations between models. Of note, Chiaki uses her Split Soul trigger to give Izamu the Reliquary upgrade of Manos making Izamu nearly unkillable throughout the game. Also after Hungering Darkness moves towards the only Corrupted Idol marker Yan Lo attaches the Spirit Ascendant upgrade and moves to it as well to bait him out. Turn 2 Yan Lo wins Initiative, Lynch goes first The bait works out as Hungering Darkness charges Yan Lo, landing some weak damage, but also scoring Deliver a Message. Manos leaps near HD, drops a scheme marker for Detonate Charges and charges HD landing some damage. Yan Lo is lured off a building by a Beckoner and dragged from his main forces. Lynch follows up by popping a couple of shots into Yan Lo, stacking up the Brilliance for Succumb to Darkness, forcing Yan Lo to stone just to survive. Yan Lo equips Flesh Ascendant to recover some health and runs back towards Hungering Darkness and places a scheme marker. Soul Porter and Chiaki push Izamu up the board and after being bombarded by a couple of scintillating clouds Izamu charges an Illuminated, destroying it and following up with Heroic Intervention on a Beckoner, failing to hit her but locking her up in melee. Another Beckoner lures HD away from the markers as well as Yan Lo, keeping him engaged with HD and using Reposition to get herself out of danger. Tannen emerges from cover and takes center stage among the Retainer crew ensuring Betrayal and Delirium affect the most models possible. Finally Yin springs out of cover and charges Kitty Dumont, landing some severe damage. In turn she responds with with some failed attacks and Lingering Contamination to start setting up Detonate Charges. Lynch scores 1VP from Deliver a Message. Turn 3 Lynch wins Initiative and goes first Sun Quiang gets charged by an Illuminated, losing half his health. Yan Lo activates attaching Blood Ascendant and tried to put down the nearby Beckoner, but cant land his attacks due to Don’t Bite The Hand. The same Beckoner as before lures Yan Lo off the bridge and pulls him in close to Lynch. Gokudo drops a scheme marker near Tannen. Lynch shoots an Illuminated to trigger The Looming Darkness and pull Hungering Darkness across the map near Yin and Kitty. He then follows up with another shot on Yan Lo and Succumb to Darkness, killing Yan Lo and summoning a Depleted in his place. Manos leaps next to a Corrupted Idol and pushes it into the enemy table side, then charges the Beckoner on the bridge, putting her down. Izamu charges the Illuminated and destroys it, following up by using Heroic Intervention on Tannen but fails. The Depleted ties up Chiaki, who uses Beckoning Call to get Izamu engage Tannen and Spirit Flute to put Sun Quiang in position for further scheme marker placing. Kitty maneuvers around Yin to place another scheme marker. In turn Yin attacks Kitty twice, each time using You’re Coming With Me to get out of range of enemy scheme markers. Unfortunately Huggy ain’t having none of that and Obeys Yin back into position and follows up with a charge to keep Yin engaged. Tannen weasels out of combat with Izamu and charges Sun Quaing almost killing him. Sun Quiang opens his bag of tricks and drops a scheme marker next to Tannen and then uses Study to turn a corpse nearby into a scheme marker as well, locking in Tannen as the victim of Detonate Charges. Yan Lo scores 2VP from Corrupted Idols and Detonate Charges Lynch scroes 1 VP from Detonate Charges Turn 4 Lynch wins Initiative and goes first The remaining Beckoner pulls Tannen away from the Retainer crew. Chiaki uses Purity to push the Depleted away from her and runs inside a building towards a strategy marker. Kitty Dumont heals from Draw Essence and moves on to the water tower next to a strategy marker. Yin attacks HD, but only gets one push out of it. HD uses Consume Brilliance to give Yin slow and again Obeys her back away from her allies and Obeys Kitty to push a strategy marker on to my side of the table. Tannen walks further from the crew and uses Despicable Promises on Yin. Gokudo walks and pushes next to a Corrupted Idol to push it 3”. Manos leaps off the bridge and charges the Depleted, but fails to kill it. Yan Lo scores 1 VP from Corrupted Idols Lynch scores 1 VP from Corrupted Idols Turn 5 Lynch wins Initiative and goes first Tannen continues moving away from his enemies, hitting Yin with Despicable Promises again and getting Boring Conversation up and running. Manos finishes off the Depleted and Leaps on to the water tower and pushes a strategy marker off into the enemies side of the board. Gokudo moves and hits the remaining Beckoner with its shuriken giving it Adversary (Ancestor). The remaining Illuminated moves and hits a group of models with Scintillating Cloud, killing the Gokudo. Chaiki walks out of the building she was hiding in and uses Beckoning Call to push the Beckoner towards Izamu. Kitty Dumont uses Reaching Tendrils to push Manos off the tower and charges Izamu, landing some weak damage. Izamu crushes her. Yin desperately tries to escape, but HD keeps her locked down and drops a scheme marker nearby. Lynch also follows up with another scheme marker near Yin. With no other means to scoring of denying VP the game is ended. Yan Lo scores 2 VP from Corrupted Idols and Take Prisoner Lynch scores 2 VP from Corrupted Idols and Detonate Charges Final Score: Lynch 5VP vs Yan Lo 5VP Thoughts on crews Retainer / Ancestor - The goal of the crew was to cover the center of the table and whichever side got a strategy marker first using the ample pushes found within the crew to get into position. The excessive healing within Yan Lo’s options would recover any health lost from Corrupted Idols, have Sun Quiang help with setup for Detonate Charges and leave Take Prisoner to Yin since that’s the optimal scheme for her to run. Despite seeing an opportunity to score Detonate Charges on a pair of isolated Illuminated I decided to hold back, this was a mistake. I instead ended up scoring it on Tannen which was a problem as that meant I didn’t want to put him down in hopes of scoring the second point, which meant enduring his auras that much longer. Yin also failed her duty as she was dog piled by a half of the Honeypot crew and became a source of VP because of how crippled she was. Honeypot - Despite taking relatively few damaging models, the crew just strangled my crew through manipulative actions. By turn 3 my entire crew was saturated with Brilliance and there was nothing I could do about it. It’s honestly a little oppressive feeling as I was just left helpless when it came to all the extra effects that were activating. Manos and Izamu were really the only models who could continue doing what they want unaffected. Deliver a Message was a given with Hungering Darkness and the Beckoners able to move a weak early game Yan Lo. Take Prisoner could’ve been guarded against had I kept my models closer together, but again those pushes exist for a reason. The Illuminated were supposed to be the Corrupted Idol pushers, but after Izamu had his way with them it was left to Kitty Dumont who was constantly sucking brilliance out of everyone around her to keep herself alive. Thoughts on Models / Upgrades Jakob Lynch - Trump Card was particularly brutal, but in addition he was a reliable shot, ground Yan Lo down until only a Depleted remained, and assisted in keeping Yin locked down. Was possibly the MVP of the crew if he hadn’t been instrumental in enabling his better half. Hungering Darkness - I think he attacked once the whole game, but no other model had a greater effect than HD. Scored Deliver a Message, took on Manos, Obey locked Yin into submission for Take Prisoner, and Obeyed Kitty into scoring Corrupted Idols. Didn’t even break a sweat to do it. Big Huggy was instrumental in scoring almost every VP. Kitty Dumont - Almost was destroyed by Yin, but after getting some backup she was able to use her mobility to score VP on the strategy. Despite the rough start she was able to be worth her points in the end. Tannen - I’ve always said Tannen is a good kind of annoying and he still is, but watching him walk away just to pick on Yin was incredible infuriating. Never make your VP dependant on Tannen living, just kill him as soon as possible. Illuminated - Not bad, but Izamu was thrown in their face and they couldn't stand against him. The lone survivor was able to be a pest by shooting at my crew. Fairly strong and well rounded. Beckoner - I always forget these are 5ss, because they do a lot for very little. Luckily they fall apart pretty quickly. Probably a bad pick for Take Prisoner due to Don't Bite The Hand. Depleted - Probably the best summon for Lynch since its death is beneficial. Did a good job of holding up Chiaki, but sadly Manos defused the bomb. Yan Lo - His poor early game was really exploited by the Lynch crew. I tried to just have him running schemes early on, but he was dragged into the front line kicking and screaming. After Deliver a Message was scored on him Lynch didn't hold up, intentionally trying to get the summon off of Succumb to Darkness at the cost of VP. At some point I stopped fighting it and just let the old man go. Soul Porter - Spent the game spamming Empower Ancestor and was chipped away by scintillating cloud. Still valued for what he did. Izamu - Izamu + Reliquary (Manos) = unstoppable. He just didn't care about anything, destroyed whatever was in front of him. His only failing was wiffing the disengage attack on Tannen once. I think this combo will be a regular thing for me when running Chiaki, Manos, and Izamu together. Manos - Probably my MVP for the game. Siphon Power made him reliably move around, Lantern of Souls stopped the Depleted from killing off Sun Quiang, provided Izuamu his Reliquary upgrade, and he scored 2VP from Corrupted Idols alone. Really versatile model. Yin - With Take Prisoner available I thought this would be Yins time to shine, but I chose a poor target and left Yin to far out on her own and was completely punished for it. I attempted to kill of Kitty early since she lacks a lot of defensive tech the other Honeypot models have, but the conflict went from a 1v1 to a 1v4 as Hungering Darkness, Lynch, Tannen, and an Illuminated jumped in while Kitty got away. Yin was overpowered and outnumbered so it’s hard to take away any critical analysis from this game on her performance. Sun Quiang - Didn’t get as much healing out of him as I had hoped, but was valuable in getting scheme markers down in scenarios that otherwise wouldn't be possible. Chiaki - First time I used Chiaki in either beta and wasn’t disappointed. Her old role of just condition removal has been significantly expanded to her benefit. Lots of pushes, great utility, and a lot more durable. Gokudo - Was really only a model I added because at the last minute I dropped some upgrades and had the spare points. Was going to keep it near Yin to run support or grab her Reliquary if she was put down, but instead the Gokudo scored a Corrupted Idol and was able to land Adversary on my Take Prisoner target allowing Chiaki to easily push the Beckoner into position. I think I’ll try using Chiaki to get an early Reliquary on the Gokudo next time to get the benefits of Empty Vessel for most of the game.

    Wow! Some awesome stuff, just under the wire! I thought I'd seen everything this month, but I was much mistaken! @bedjy: Crazy attention to detail. Kudos. That's more testicular attention than any painter I've ever seen. I hope I never need to type that sentence again. @Kimberly & @Purple Mist: I'll be ordering some colour change paints today. You've convinced me. @Phinn: That rat looks to be genuinely panicking. Love it. @OctaBit: All lovely miniatures, but that blue gradient is especially lovely. @Chou: Very smooth fabric on the Ortegas. You've got the contrast perfectly done for fabric. @Athiko: The glow on your TOS minis is wonderful. Care to share your blue-glow-recipe? @Viruk: The belly scales on those Rattlers is wonderful. I think I like the darker one more, but ooh, it's close. @Stranglelove: Congrats, and well deserved on your painting win. @Franchute: The front of Fitzsimmon's hat looks like NMM! The shine on the hat, and front of the paints (and Mouse's canister) , is really, really well done. @emiba: The fabric on Ikyrio and Onryo is wonderful. The contrast with the dark flesh is grotesque, and brilliant. @Rathnard: I wouldn't be brave enough to try that high-contrast highlighting, but I adore it. @misterfinn: That Miss Deed is right up there with the best I've seen. Wonderful, wonderful stuff. @Boomstick: I think I'll have to get some of those Akaname. They're hideous. @Burnin' Coal: That Broken fire team. Wow. Each individual mini is beautful. The entire team is cohesive, unified, and just superb. @Polar43: Those gremlins remind me of '80's and '90's GW Goblins. That's one stunning green. I'd love to see them in person one day! @khilin: I'm loving the Firestarter's rusted canister, but most of all: What paint did you use on the brass gas tanks? Looks great! Caedrus.
