  1. No specific resolutions from me in the hobby area for 2021, apart from keeping up the work Here's my start so far: Mr Chompington Mr Avatar Chompington (slightly modified with custom base and M2E Dreamer). Just a heads up, this wonder is for sale Three Madnesses Plus three quick speed paintjobs for a buddy: Sitting at 60 soulstones for now, more may be added (as you can see in the last picture ) More pics + some comments on my blog http://www.whatthefaux.net/2021/01/finishing-nightmare-keyword.html

  4. Hey Wyrdos! If there’s one thing Malifaux is known for, it’s stories. Whether they’re tall tales told around a Badlands campfire, a rumor getting spread in the Quarantine Zone, or a Woe entertaining her children, infamy and legend can make or break anyone in Malifaux. In the case of Ella Mae Chesterfield, sometimes, you gotta be the one to spread your story. Read on to get the low-down on one of Malifaux’s most grudge-holding gunslingers in this free Augment for Through the Breach: So, what’s inside, you might ask? Well, let’s take a look: Background on the Chesterfie

My list (aka, everything I own except unassembled Rough Riders) Basse w/ Hidden Agenda Bernadette Reichart Sand Worm Paul Crockett Frontiersman Frontiersman w/ Flush With Cash Frontiersman 7 soulstones Flank deployment, Symbols of Authority, Assassinate, Leave Your Mark (Opponent took Leave Your Mark, Breakthrough, so did great with denial).

  9. Hi there! checking late, but 100% in for this year's challenge too!!! (i'll keep going with the enforcer level of 6SS @Caedrus ). For this month i'll pledge 2 small minis, the hodgepodge effigy, and the kamaitachi, fpr 4SS each. And for the hobby resolutions, mine are: 1- try to get skilled familiar with the airbrush 2- paint more bigger scale stuff, like busts & 75mm 3- and this one is a long shot, but I'd like to paint the entire last blossom keyword (i've only painted shang so far) Have a nice 2021 everyone! ❤️

  10. There is a simple explanation for Ice Mirror working as it does: the number of Ice Pillars during a game is usually increasing, so Rasputina becomes more and more of a thread while the other crews are rather limited with their repeaters (even Sandeep is when you don't go all Academics - which I've never seen so far) who's numbers are twindling. There also might be a balance issue as the Silent Ones also have Ice Mirror. Still, I also consider the need to discard a hard for Triggers too hard a hit for Raspi. After all, it's 3 actions we are talking about. And the crew has very limited ways fo

  11. So, most us are aware what does it and how must have this upgrade is in current Guild meta, every crew besides Hoffman's run it in almost every crew. But to those who don't know what does it do here it goes. For 2SS we get Armor +1 and Laugh Off. Minions also gain Hunker Down which if model did not moved during it's activation it gains Shielded +2. So, as minion part is not important, but the Armor +1 and Laugh Off are big bois here. This upgrade is supreme in every aspect to the other defensive ups in game. Being able to reduce every damage by 1, most of the time making it only 1 damage, but

  13. Just saying, open beta is not a democratic process. Not all voices are equal. But there is a degree of your information is only as good as people give it to you, so it is possible that if only poor players played against her, the results flattered her and she was brought down. ( It's also possible she is just a a middle master this gaining grounds) And currently the majority of the votes have her in the top half of the faction. But she is a very different play experience to last edition from what I've seen. ( and iggy is great for wildfire, and the only misery that you can easily ke

  16. There are certainly people who will suggest Henchman hardcore as a way to demo. I'm not completely convinced its a good representation of what Malifaux is, so I would probably suggest normal Malifaux but with smaller lists. Its very hard to pick 2 masters as beginner friendly. I think at Beginner level all masters can do all strategies and schemes, its only as people get better, that you will start to see where masters are better in one place or another. All masters can be played in complicated ways, although the learning curves are different. My advice is pick 1 master you like. W

  17. I used Model 9 (aka Murderbot) in a game yesterday for the first time (and it was actually my first game with Apex) and Model 9 was a beast. I was a able to get a couple of focused on him early and over the course of 5 rounds he killed 3 models, including Nekima and Euripedes (my opponent was playing multi-master). With focus, adversary, and predatory instinct he can take advantage of an escalating damage track pretty easily. During the game he would generally use x marks the spot to give injured. Next charge and ping for 1 with blade rush. Then use stat 7 knife attack to throw a knife a

  18. My resolutions this year: 1) To keep using painting as an exercise in "I'm doing this because I enjoy it, not because I 'should' or 'have to'". It's been terribly helpful at this so far. 2) To decrease my Pile of Shame faster than I can make it bigger. To start off, here's what's on the docket for the month, with the snow gamin being first for a local event that emds this weekend.

  19. The clause you’re thinking about only exists in the rules for triggers, and does not apply to general effects. Just because it says “after resolving” doesn’t require anything to survive. When you get to the effect and choose “Yes, I want to unbury” (due to the “may unbury”), the fact that there’s nowhere to unbury as specified means that the last half of the unbury rules (the part dealing with the model not being able to place as specified) means that the “escape clause” kicks in and the model gets placed in its deployment zone.

  21. Not exactly. P. 33 of the rule book for unbury effect: If the model cannot be Placed, the owner of the model instead places it anywhere inside their Deployment Zone so you place your model in your deployment zone. This can be a neat trick to catch deep field scheme runner!

  24. My progress so far: Finished painting Alphonse. He's got a big base to fill though, so I don't consider this model finished before he has something spectacular to stand on. @Maogrim I will post the complete crew once he is finished.

  25. Also in the game that third floor wars streamed, where I believe Matt & Kyle where commenting, they said it was on purpose. They wanted a master that was pure construct, and played around several stuff until settling for the "rebuilt" man that is Cooper now. Also, cue in Obi-wan Kenobi :

  28. My resolution is to paint more regularly. I'm looking to do a few hours (2-3) per week to start and build from there. Minimum is to paint at least a bit (30 min?) every week outside busy season, just to keep some regular habit/progress. A reach goal is to be able to field a fully painted 50ss crew by year end, but the more impressive models like masters and henchmen do scare me and I know that's a hurdle to get through. I have started painting already and am close to done on a few models I first put paint on early in lockdown.

  29. Caedrus, checking in! I finished these guys (maybe the base edges need one more coat, though...) Thanks @Diddick, and thanks @SEV for the feedback! Doing those white highlights is for me the final step in NMM, and always the most nerve-wracking! I really struggle to make my miniatures appear dirty, even though these drills utterly should be. I have decreased the NMM effect towards the bottom of the minis, and then used some dusting powders for extra grime and dust. In my Malifaux, soulstones have a violet / magenta colour (not canon, but I like purple. Whatchagonnado?)

  30. Hi there! Done for the month with the obsidian statue (9 SS) I tried to keep it as much "obsidian black" as possible while also creating a color contrast going from blueish grays on the top highlights to red/orange on bottom fire OSL highlights. The images are so dark is quite hard to see the bottom OSL though... i might try to take pics with a lighter background and see if looks better. Next year there will be more and (hopefully) better ^^ And in case there's no chance to write here again in the next days: merry Xmas to everyone, and have a happy entrance to a less crazy

  36. In my opinion, enthusiasm is the most important resource for starting and building a new meta. Don't let it slip away while you wait on paperwork! Henchman titles and rewards are nice, but it's no substitute for running demos and fostering a community. I don't know what the COVID situation is in your locality, but even if things are on a total lock down, you can lay the groundwork by being active on FLGS sites to gin up interest, reading the rules to feel solid about teaching, and (as you've already mentioned you're doing) working on visuals like crews and terrain. And if they're mor

  37. And iggy is garbage. The problem with most game systems is that burst damage is almost always better than D.O.T , and Death is usually the best C.C /Crowd control. So while the crew can ping you for a bit, it's also much too squishy. Furthermore it's crowd control doesn't really allow it to control the battlefield as well as it should for having such unreliable damage. I think pandora's crew really just should say slow anywhere it says stun, and given terrify to her minions

  38. if No Prisoners wouldn't be changed from meh to meh I guess splitting Armor + Laugh off between the 2 would be good. LLC and No Prisoner minion only buffs are bad to say the least compared to some other upgrade buffs.

  39. No, there's one situation where a model can't use soulstones, and a situation where a model can use soulstones but doesn't have any to use. There's no comparison to costs to use an ability to be made here, and if Expert Thief actually cared about the crew having soulstones or not there would be no reason to include an "If it does so" clause.

  40. You've got two situations where the model with the ability to use soul stones cannot use soul stones, and you appear to be claiming arbitrarily that one counts and the other doesn't, in a game where if you don't have a card in your hand you can't pay a "discard a card" cost. In both cases, the model still has the ability which states that it can use soul stones. And in both cases, some external factor is preventing the use of use of that ability.

  41. Yep that scream Seamus to me... but his keyword doesn't follow this game style. As already mentioned, outcast seem the way to go. You'll even have access to Necropunk if you play Levi! Maybe the new Syndicate Keyword in ES can embody this playstyle but I only see them in action once so I don't really know.

  42. The rider list was my favourite list to run back in M2E and I'm eagerly waiting for that keyword to get used again in M3E. I was hoping to see the new explorers use it but alas I'm still having to wait... I've since become a fan of the crossroad 7 ran crew. It makes me wonder if the same sort of thing could be done with the horsemen. Both the crossroad and Horsemen list back in M2e were more of a niche list rather than something competitive but good players could make them work. Perhaps giving them an upgrade since they have a specific keyword Keyword: Horsemen Cost

  43. I think that makes a lot of assumptions about designer intent and implied words, on top of being a weird argument in general. Do you think a model with Soulstone Cache that's within 6" of Von Schtook could still be targeted by Expert Thief as well? Or that a model with Soulstone Cache can't even be targeted by Expert Thief since they can only use soulstones thanks to the upgrade and it's possible to remove said upgrade, so they're always only temporarily a soulstone user.

  48. First, the card draw. It just keeps on coming with the dispatcher being able to count as a scheme marker. Removing the card draw would be step number 1, or at least making it draw one discard one. Secondly, executioners are a 2 inch reach model that comes in slow, which is easily removed in guild. They ignore resistance triggers with crit strike and execute, which is fine. Why the 2 inch reach with scatter and trail of gore? They more likely will be hitting you with stat 7 due to pursue. The crew itself can easily move them out of combat so there is no way to really lock them down. Grit,
