  5. Actually if antipathy from a single aversion triggers mutliple times, wouldn't it trigger infinitly if the model is blocked from leaving the 4" aura? As 0" push is still a move!

  6. Fair warning, I'm no expert and haven't even faced Daw myself). That said what you've written sounds right. There's a discussion thread right now about whether Hans is worth his cost. I fall firmly on the yes side, so I'd definitely bring him. Most of the time I find Taelor not worth the cost, but the one exception might be if a scavenger was giving her focus+fast for turns 2+3. I wouldn't bring Freikorpmann unless you have a gunline plan. A Drachen Trooper would be an interesting idea to get rid of staggered. Since he can pulse it out it's a lot more efficient than Johan.

  7. The problem comes when you extend out Hoffman and Mei Feng. I started with wanting to collect Guild, and one Master in each other faction (Seamus, Ramos, Zoraida and Levi). But Seamus wanted some Nico stuff, and Terror Tots were just awesome and... Then we got the cross faction masters, and 10T, and I saw an entire Bayou crew on Ebay (sans Wong and Zipp), and I was in too deep. My name is Morgan, and I'm a Malifauxholic.

  8. That was the joke I was trying to make... 😜 Apparently unsuccessfully! How's it been going for you? Any hot tips? Do you use Bete in Retrieve evidence? Shame she can't bury, but reducing 2dg each time is still ok...

  9. Haha, don't worry about that; most people will be happy to answer your questions I'm not much into RES, so I'd leave the advice for RES players. But I'm here to tell you there is an ongoing Vassal tournament with a video of a VS game (and VS winning that game). It might give you an idea of how he plays in the table in the hands of an experienced player doing well in that tournament (if you are into whatching other people play): Team Russia #2 vs. Northern Moose Infantry: Aleksander (Shenlong) 1:5 Andreas Söder (Von Schtook)

  10. It's quite the opposite! The more people starting conversations, the more lively the forum is. Typically for every person who asks a question, there's dozens of people who follow the thread and get tips from it I'm not too knowledgeable about the crew compared to others here (like Graf), but here's one of his basic tactics for turn 1: If you win initiative, have your opponent go first. Possibly use some pass tokens to delay activating. Use Von Schtook to give an upgrade to the Valedictorian Use Von Schtook to give fast to the Valedictorian. Position Carrion Em

  11. Been following this with interest. For me it's great that some people like and dislike nekima for what she does, suggests that style is a key part of the game which is one of the things I love about it. Same with Molly, she's probably one of the best masters I've encountered. Card draw, scheming, maneuverability, killing, shes a pretty great package and I hater her 😊.

  12. all leaping models in ressers are not so tough(archie, manos, necropanks) and could do only 1 marker and/or interact if engaged; some models like first mate, vasques, stalker, desper live and do their work better; also ressers dont have any non-scheme marker removal than molly, its too bad; thats why symbols is very hard strategy; intel tokens without dont mind sometimes very hard to remove; few irridusible and armour piercing dmg

  15. It's theoretical for me so far - I played Pandora before Aversion were released. My friend just picked them up so I'll be seeing them on the table soon and have more practical wisdom to share. So I'll report back when I know more!

  16. I'm more or less and exclusive Foundry player, so ask me w/e. Things that super annoy me that havent been mentioned yet are A) Armored constructs. The crew can struggle against armor and their Hazardous doesnt affect constructs so they lose their ping damage. B) Moving me away from Scrap Markers. The crew can correct, but it takes time and effort. They have low movement so if you pull them away from Scrap it is fairly easy to trap them. The Hole in the World trigger has been used against me exactly twice and both times it lost me the game. C) As Adrian touched on, Obeys wreck

  17. Caedrus, checking in! Greetings, fellow painters. I hope that, wherever you are in the world, that you are safe, well and happy. In fact, here in Australia, it's RUOK ("Are you OK?") Day, where we encourage everyone to ask those around you if they are OK, in terms of their mental health. So, in that spirit, I hope all my fellow painters are OK! My apologies, folks, it's been a crazy time for me of late. In fact, one of the reasons for this (if you'll forgive a personal anecdote) is that Caedrus is now Dr. Caedrus! Woo! However, onto far more important things - painting! Thi

  19. I was thinking about this some more, Hounds could gain a new ability, fetch, where they can move a scheme, corpse or scrap marker with them when they make a walk action. This would give them some utility, and could be paired with insignificant to stop them being schemed on, but make them a useful tool for other scheme runners. Combine that with making them versatile, and my two pack mentality changes, and I think it's a winner? Quite a hefty change though...

  20. Also, I wasn't too sure about how much variety there would be in The Explorer's Society when they were first announced, but my concerns were clearly misplaced. Wyrd are absolutely killing it.

  21. Showgirls/Performers have always been some of my favorites as well, since we were on the topic. While not as obviously iconic as Seamus' "dead hookers" aesthetic, I think Team Colette has consistently been some of the best and most interesting sculpts every edition. They're flashy and daring (for the setting's time period) but I've never found them to be overly sexualized or tasteless. Beyond that you have very fun lore; Colette has a lot of things she's juggling, from the truly fun angle of dazzling even Guild eyes with real magic skillfully made to look like sleight of hand, to the varying d

  22. Not to mention, even a cursory understanding of vaudeville theater would make any of the sculpts not only thematically appropriate, but even tame.

  24. In answer to the first point, you would be in the right to still do your butterfly jump (and such like). Your opponent can't just skip through decision steps, although as said, there is the cavate that you should try to not spend too long on these choices. On the second point it gets a little more complex. In most games, I'd happily say that yes it was possible to reach it. in friendly games I might go through how to do it before I did it, but in a tournament I would be a little less forthcoming with the information. If I truly thought my opponent was trying to gain unfairly by it, then I

  25. Not to mention tons of abilities to reposition enemies, the ability to self bury models for lodestones, etc. Symbols are pretty hard to lock down with melee (you need 2" engagement range to do it, spread all over the map). But Ressers can use Toshiro to summon Ashigaru on them which gives awesome coverage. And of course Molly has basically everything you listed as necessary for a good crew xD

  26. Not everyone has to have access to all tools but work well with the ones given to them, I personally don't want a simmetric game where every faction has dopplegangers of each other good models or tech... and in fact RES has some crazy tech not that common in other factions and a lot of Masters in a good place. I don't think they are in a bad place scheme wise... if the main comparing point is Colette, then everyone is bad at scheming. Archie, Manos and Necropunks aren't squishy by any strech... Necropunks are point by point one of the best schemers in the game, avaliable OOK and summonabl

  27. I played Hamelin into Colette on Corrupted Leylines. I think the scheme pool was Take Prisoner, Vendetta, Runic Binding, Spread Them Out, and Breakthrough. I went for Take Prisoner and Vendetta, my opponent went for Spread Them Out and Breakthrough. The game went down to the line, I was losing 4-5 going into Turn 5, but at that point I had 23 models on the table including 10 rats and I was able to pack them in deep enough around my opponent's models to make it physically impossible to get where they needed to go. Ultimately out activated him, lured the Mechanical Rider away from a Strategy Mar

  28. Played Henchman Hardcore, we ended up drawing 4-4 HH Arik (Outcasts) Size: 30 - Pool: 1 Leader: Arik Schöttemer Hires: Freikorps Engineer Freikorps Engineer 2 Freikorps Librarian Before the match I was actually thinking that Hannah was strictly better for HH. Arcane Reservoir and the ability to copy strengthen armor or healing energy seems better than Arik. I still think that's true, but I really underestimated diving charge. Arik was able to get through a large swamp and saved me an AP going around a building. It's an ability on the card that's easy to for

  30. The potential for enemies to use them as a speed boost is annoying and like it probably should have been a May abilitiy, and the model does seem overpriced. Antipathy raises a few questions for me though. I don't think it can double trigger, because it only does the movement after a action (not after other abilities)???? It hadn't occurred to me that scatter could trigger antipathy giving upto 6" push though, that's pretty cool

  31. If all the female models in Malifaux were dressed provocatively, then I could see the point, but a crew of what are basically burlesque dancers dressed like burlesque dancers is a) thematically appropiate, and b) perfectly fine within the context of the range.

  32. I find it quite amusing that you say so while overlooking the remark about Seamus' girls. I maybe have spoken with 3 women about Malifaux, not exactly representative, but the general consent was that because of them being Zombies and Seamus bein a crazy Murderer (an understatement, I know), it's more of a cool horror theme, with the tasteless dresses fitting quite well to it. Performers on the other side were rather disliked. I mean that they work as prostitutes isn't even that much of a big deal (Qi and Gong), but the choice of clothes. You can dress revealing and sexy while also l

  33. Performer models look absolutely fine to me - follow the aesthetic perfectly. Trixie and Olivia on the other hand ruin tricksy and wizz-bang for me. With Mah, you can escape it, but Wong needs his totem! As said above Winged plague don't feel like they belong. Grave golem seems a fairly lazy sculpt - I'm fairly convinced I can make something better myself (already seen better models made by others). Geryon similarly just looks really boring. Pigapult being a tiny sprue in a giant box, and priced as such is also an issue. Opening that up after forking out for a 'large'
