  1. Perhaps the fix to Peacekeeper should just be to remove the versatile tag? 😜 No more problem!

  3. Finishing off the year with the M2E Viktorias box set with an Alt Taelor: I really struggled with the skin on these girls. Tried several methods and wasn't overly pleased with any of them. I'm also not crazy about the bases; the Vallejo desert kind of looks like cake batter. Happy to have these off the table so I can finish the 1988 Mei Feng crew. Then, it's onto the Explorer's Society. That's 47ss for me, @Caedrus Thanks for all that you've done this year.

  4. Finally! The Void Hunters and the Scion of the Void was released, so I have all of Tara's models finished. She was the first master I looked at when I went to my FLGS to try out the game, but I skipped her because she was missing too much of her keyword. I'll be trying her out on the 10th, and I'm really looking forward to it. I went for a pale look with reddish purple shadows on the hunters, and something similar but less pale on the Scion. I also did my usual "From Nothing"-gimmick on them. And a family photo of the keyword.

  7. Plenty of wagons and carts out there. Don't forget to check Etsy - a surprising amount of terrain on there, though usually not pre-painted. I really like 4Ground's crate set - use it a lot: https://store.warlordgames.com/collections/terrain/products/shipping-crates-and-freight-boxes?variant=31469100990544 Some 3d printed stuff on Amazon can work. These boulders could be useful and don't necessarily have to be painted: https://www.amazon.com/EnderToys-Boulder-Tabletop-Miniatures-Paintable/dp/B07SH2YDYS/ref=pd_sbs_37?pd_rd_w=iq8XI&pf_rd_p=ed1e2146-ecfe-435e-b3b5-d79fa072fd58&p

  8. Finished out the year with the Bandersnatch, two Sorrows, two Aversion, and a Lyssa for 33ss. Got real close on a few others but definitely don't have time before new years to finish them up, but they'll make a nice springboard into January. One again, thank you @Caedrus for running the challenge this year, and for continuing to next year! And to everyone else: phenomenal work, I've loved watching everyone continue and improve over the year!

  9. Neverborn are my third faction. I started with Guild, as I loved the faux models, but doubted I could find any use for them, and at the time it was more probable I could use them for an RPG. McMourning then took me into ressur territory, and suddenly I found myself having 5 crews and just one game to my name. Realizing I’d become more of a painter than a player, I finally caved in to my first impulse and got The Dreamer - luckily the opportunity for more games came up, and soon Pandora followed, then Lucius, and luckily they’re as fun to play ad they were to paint. I’m fairly

  10. Hi, looking at the current state of some models/crews in Guild I would like Wyrd to change some of models so they can be finally be seen again on the table. Not all changes should be applied at one moment, some of them are just alternatives for one one already listed in this current model changes. For all folks who wants to my "knowledge of the Guild" I'm currently the top Guild Player in my country, so I think I know some stuff about my lovely faction. Versatile: Peacekeeper right now: Right now is Versatile/Augmented with tanky heavy hitter with cost of 10 SS. His weakness is low

  11. Next month's tournament for the vassal world series uses the Iron Scorpius format (can't take the same master more than once), and it got me thinking... Has anyone tried a variant of Iron Scorpius where you can't take the same model more than one round? So you could use two shieldbearers in round 3, but then couldn't use them in rounds 1, 2, or 4? It seems like it'd be an interesting way to ensure a lot more keyword models see play, since the powerful versatile and OOK options wouldn't be spammed every round. On the other hand, some factions might just cease to be viable entirely (Gu

  12. Sand Worm can make Dust Clouds within 4 not leave at the end of the current turn. This ability is much better, and it's a built in suit... but it is once per Turn, so only 5 a game unless you can mimic it somehow.

  14. As far as I can tell, the only possible thing that "If it does so" can refer to is specifically "Unbury into base contact with a Shadow Marker, then remove that Marker". For Shang's Flickering Flames, the "if it does so" clause has to refer to Unburying into base contact with Shang. If you invoke that ability, that rules out the "if it does so" clause in From Shadow. In other words, if Misaki is buried at the start of her activation, the player has a choice between two options: Option A: Unbury Misaki in base contact with a friendly Shadow Marker, then remove that Marker.

  15. I would disagree on the fact if I want to run an event with weird restrictions, then I should be able to do so. You would be welcome to not play in such an event, but you shouldn't be able to stop me running it. And whilst I agree it'd be less balanced, I expect a lot of people won't have spent enough time playing with such restrictions that they have out right worked out the best options so it's much harder to know which models have a major power shift and so the imbalance are much less likely to show.

  16. Agreed, but i think that would fix a bit the keyword and would be able to face Ophelia. I like it. As i said above. Or they change It for the Foul-Mouthed Motivation. Or make similar to Soothe Spirit lowering the TN to 10 and giving some triggers. Maybe you don't see how strong PK is, i'm agree that you're not going to see out of Hoffy. But if he get +1wk and the ability to autogenerate Power Tokens he would become a very fast model. He would be able to make two to a model 14" away. (Or 17" away with trail of gore). And thats an insane damage.

  17. One of the only good things about 2020 was the number of Malifaux miniatures I got painted thanks to the painting challenge. I'm pledging Tyrant again. This year I'm going to focus on getting a bunch of stuff done for the Other Side. @Stranglelove (my son) has a fully painted army and I'd like to have the same.

  20. Another variant I'm considering is Keyword Scorpius. Can't declare the same master more than once, can only use keyword models. At the start of the tournament, you can declare any versatile model without a keyword hireable in one crew. This would have largely the same effect, though, I think? Except it would kill off models that are better out of keyword than in keyword (like Bete Noire). Could also do this without the Scorpius part to accommodate smaller collections.

  21. I'm not sure how Peacekeeper can be considered mediocre damage. For the sake of the argument I'll assume you're only talking about Peacekeeper outside of an augmented crew where his output is reliably going to be somewhere between 2 attacks at stat 6 min 3 from 10" away or 1 gunshot plus 2 melee attacks from 9" away for a minimum of 6 to 8 points. At 10 stones this is pretty much above average not only in faction but across factions without any supporting models involved. Add the ability to deny scheme markers on top of that and it is a perfectly acceptable melee piece with some added utility

  22. I took a fixed list to UK Nationals that included santiago and pistoleros and only lost one game. (only won one as well but still). Family are fragile yes they do need defensive tech. i think you have hit the nail on the head with the bravado ability but i would say make it a choice to gain shielded or Focused. not both

  24. I played Hoffman in last tournament with PK, Howard, Joss & Melissa. PK almost kill VSchtook in T3 (he survived thx to soulstones with high cards) I like PK, he is not really a versatil model, but with Hoffman becomes unstopable.

  26. You've got way too many hot takes on here for me to reply to all of them. In general I think you're pretty much misevaluating most of the models you suggest changes to. The only takes I can agree with are on orderlies quellerd and recruiters needing some help.

  27. Wolsung have some cool (expensive) resin crates and barrels. They're already laid out as barricades for you as well. TT combat had a bunch of MDF carts that were great and cheap, not sure they're in production at the moment though. 4 grounds have a bunch of stuff as do warcradle (under gloomburg iirc). Mantic do plastic terrain that looks very appropriate, but I've never seen it in person. For Ice and Jungle maps you're probably better off making your own stuff.

  28. Wishing you guys all the best in the coming year. The challenge was a great source of motivation for me this year and I always enjoyed looking at everyone's awesome work. I'm going to try to devote more time to display painting in 2021 so I won't be participating in the challenge, but I'll definitely still be checking these threads for inspiration. To anyone considering trying out the challenge I'd thoroughly recommend it. It's a great chance to add a little spice to your projects and participate with some extremely talented painters and all around pleasant people.

  29. It has been a while, but now I have finally painted something Malifaux-related again! Nellie! It's hard to get a good image because of the pose. I didn't want the "official" colour scheme on this one as I think that a brown suit, brown leather straps and red hair provides too little contrast. So I went with a blue suit instead. It is close to the Guild uniforms, but not exactly the same, which is a little nod to Nellies relationship with the Guild. She is not officially part of the Guild, but in reality - she is.

  31. 你们好! My resolutions for 2021 will include: - the complete Honeypot Keyword, - the complete Qi & Gong - some Ten Thunders Versatiles, like Miss Guided, Samurai, Lone Swordsmen... - And then we'll see. For this month I shall pledge at least two Illuminated, who would count for 14 Soulstones, which is more than enough to satisfy my Henchman tier. At least if I understood the rules correctly. Quick question for all you guys: How do you post pictures more efficiently? My attachments are 99% full from the pics in my own painting thread...

  33. Well the community I have cultivated as a Henchman has decided to do our part. Several have just placed orders for TOS Allegiance boxes with our LGS. I have some ideas on how we are going to build the excitement locally and that may just include some crossover opportunities with not just Malifaux but also TTB. I am fortunate to have a really receptive community that is willing to try new things.

  34. In case anyone hasn't seen it, Kyle responded to a question on a ToS Facebook page a couple of months ago saying: To clear some confusion: during our Gen Con live stream (which you can find on our YouTube channel), we stated that we are hoping that the TOS Starter can act as a way to revitalize the game, so its launch window is very important. Clearly, we'd like to release it as soon as we are able, but with the way that the world is right now, it does not make sense for us to release it when there are not a lot of players able to play (with playing at local stores not being the sa

  35. Question - did you play dashel before the last errata? I think there were more cries then for guards to be improved than there are now for him to be nerfed. The dispatcher received a big boost, but it is still only a 4 wound insignificant totem. I'm bringing it up to show what a fine line between too weak and too strong there can sometimes be.

  36. I think the idea is... Leveticus' demise allows him to place into contact with a waif (and kill it). Leveticus gets to heal if and only if he placed into base contact with a waif. The unbury rules prevent Leveticus from returning to the table. Since Leveticus doesn't place in base contact, he doesn't get the heal. So he dies (even though his demise technically goes off, it does nothing).

  38. I have found he is much more use as a disruption piece over a basic tank. Use "bring it" to pull items out of position and allow other models to kill or score schemes off him. later on he can go scheme runner hunting. i agree that his stoic nod is currently wasted space on his card.

  39. Right now if i should play a game with frontiers on Guild i would pay 10ss and use Phiona instead of Reichart. You want to use Reichart as a tank, enganging enemies whilst other models do their stuff. Stoic Nod right now is a waste of action/cards when you see the healing tech of other factions. Foul-Mouthed Motivation: other model within 6" heals 1/2/3 and gain Focus +1 . Its a bonnus action, you need a 6+ (5+ with Dashel) and out of Guild you get a trigger for extra stuff. Soothe Spirits: other model within 6" heals 1/2/3 and has 2 trigger to give: Fast, Focus, Shielded... Ki

  40. I think you're catching a little more flack than is really deserved. I can see where you're coming from with identifying some of the problem models, even if some of the suggested changes may be a bit over reaching or excessive. That's definitely the space where I'm going to defer to the more experienced game designers to identify some more light touch and elegant solutions. The issue with peacekeeper for instance is that he's already very strong in his keyword so any buffs there could be an issue, while he struggles to find space as a versatile model. Slightly easier access to power to

  41. Can't believe you started with the peacekeeper, from there I just couldn't take you seriously. I mean he's a beast, with flurry, easy access to fast in his keyword and is that threat of another attack. 4 actions is the dream? In Hoffman 4 is the standard and have had 5. I also run him nicely in Nellie where again its easy to get trail of gore and speed him up. Let's not forget he has a stat 6 gun too and can if he has power tokens hit min 5. Quellers, pistoleros and orderly I could get behind changes but nothing else in your list.

  42. Phew those are some spicy takes. Just off the top of my head- Caught in Quicksand may not apply every game, but it is often a very powerful ability that makes a really nice complement to the already nice shotgun he carries. I would be so sad if they made the flame insig. Best scheme runner in faction. If you buffed the PK at all, much less to the level you discuss, ArcHoff becomes the best master in the game. Risk of Reason could use some help, but I don't think no damage is the sweet spot there. I think I agree with most of the rest of your assessments of most

  44. The action ignores concealing, it does not remove concealing from another model. You're going to be looking for an ironclad rule that doesn't exist because you're interpreting the effect incorrectly.

  45. Yes. Keep in mind that before ES released, the Thunder Archer was the only model with the Shadow Pin trigger, so wouldn't make much sense to have a trigger with a condition that would be be achieved.

  46. The quote from Kyle makes totally sense - but i think it takes more than just wait for the right moment. I invested a lot of money and time into TOS so far because i think it is an awesome game with great miniatures but looking at the market right now i think WYRD misses a big opportunity in really celebrating their product. Starting just with showing off their miniatures on the back of the box (which is the normal online shop image) as lifeless renderings without shadow, color or any love. Next in my opinion is showing via social media how the models look painted/in terrain. The sculpts are

  48. I do not agree with your point of view on the marshals. LJ : she is a strong and mobile beater. Hard to wound, melee range 2", and the ability to kill easily support models for 2 points of heal gives her a very good survivability. Her damage may not be the highest of the game, but she is still a huge threat for def 5 models. Her melee 6 makes her less effective against stat 6 or 7, but you have enough injured in the keyword to handle this. Her threat range is also very high. Her riposte does not hit often, but a lot of players will not make end of turn attacks on LJ because of this t
