  2. Bad Juju. This was surprisingly difficult in some ways and weirdly effortless in others. I'm not 100% sure I nailed the colour scheme and I probably should've been more daring in adding in all sorts of purples and reddish browns but it's fine for what it is, I think.

  3. 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

  5. And Woe is quite often very resilient. I often go to war with two soulstones and end up spending them on cards. The key thing is that their resilience doesn’t come from super stats or armor, but their denial. Getting Candy into the midst of the opponent, and suddenly he’s facing Stun, Slow, Manipulative and sees all his damage to the source of problems reduced by two. He is caught between ineffectual actions or wasting actions on moving. And Teddy with his 7pt upgrade Baby Kade becomes outright bonkers, regenerating from failed Wps, movement tricks, and dealing out a ton of extra d

  7. 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! ❤️

  8. So, I'm competitive Malifaux player, pretty high in ranking in my country also, lastly played a lot of vassal with various players from different countries so I saw a lot of their metas. And never seen Rasputina being played, later I tried converging into Arcanist (Guild Player here) and starter from her. First matches were awful, did not know when to Ice Pillar or when to just focus and try blasting, is Blizzard should be used now or just charge and do 3 attacks with Ice Pillar next to me for bonus damage. Is Freeze Over better than Blasts? First 10 games was learning, next 20 ones were impro

  9. Tuco can throw a spanner in your opponents wheel by unburying a summon T1 in your opponents deployment zone. His Disillusionment might be short ranged, but unlike a Lure you control the movement - and with position based Strats and Schemes that can be quite advantageous. He can definitely find a space in a Dreamer crew. Not for every match-up, but for some. - and his Good for a laugh -trigger is a good use of Tomes.

  12. Shikome seems great here. Armor piercing + the reach to get those pesky deep field scheme runner or to go and kill support pieces (med automaton) asap. I don't play resser, but I was in the same spot as you are in November (discovering Hoffman with a new crew, I played him only twice and in guild, but this is more about experience sharing than advice anyway). This was brutal each time. I was surprised by the versatility and the efficiency of the crew. The first time he easily match Zipp speed + attack the center with Howard. The second time (played by @Legislat) he just came into Do

  15. Personally, I only played against Hoffman once. I remember a discussion exactly about this topic here in some thread... Analyze Weakness still is a valid choice. It's not as strong as against other armour lists, but it forces your opponent to spend their master's action to counter it, which still is a benefit for you.

  16. I would just put a long pin through the body and straight into the base. I've done this for quite a few models and when you paint the pin black it really doesn't make it aesthetically unpleasing. I mean, you can hide inside a tall grass tuft or something if you feel like it but I really feel that the pin isn't a problem even when visible. Here's an example (the paintjob is very WIP as is evident but should still show my point):

  17. How come that no one mentions the fact that Pandora can mess with activation order of the opponent crew and how useful it is? You have a single healer? - Why don't you activate it first so you have no way to heal your models for the rest of the turn while I beat them? While I agree that Sorrows and Aversion don't do a lot of damage in most games (if any), both can be quite useful - with aversion winning in that space, pushing enemies away, pushing friendly manipulative models to get in place before they activate.

  18. Well main thing to do is take out the heal bots (toolkit/totem) ASAP, otherwise your just losing efficiency Drowned can be good as you can do lots of chip damage with there blasts which hoff doesn't like Be aware of what hoff has put temper steel on and try to make sure ikryo/shikome go in to other stuff

  19. Yeah, looks totally doable, right? but the main problem is not the time, but the focus, or the lack of XD I know myself, and half way to the project i'll get bored and had 3 different ideas on which i'll want to start working ASAP, and while working on one of those ideas, i'll have a couple more, and then a cool instagram challenge will come across, and it's already october which means Rotten Harvest, and look! it's december and I only painted minako rei and the archers ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  20. Haha, I wouldn't call Kade just an upgrade. He's a little murder baby. He's squishy, but if the opponent doesn't respect him, he'll happily stab for 9 points of damage in an activation.

  21. Stun is one of the most powerful conditions in the game. Stripping your opponents of actions and giving them more choices is just one thing, but the main thing is denying them their triggers. No more Onslaughts, Crits, Execute, Ricochets and what-nots. You might say bonus actions are hodge-podge, but they’re the ‘third’ AP, and they usually do something critical for the model it can’t do in its normal actions. And when you Combine it with Slow, everything just grinds to a halt. Sorrows are great. They don’t do anything dramatically good, but they add to the grind. They can beat/out

  23. I like the concept, but maybe a little easy? What about if the Infestation trigger changed to include "If this attack kills the target, replace them with a Winged Plague instead."? My understanding is that at present Infestation does nothing if the target dies, would be nice to plug that hole. May need different wording though so that you don't get both a Rat and a Winged Plague from the one hit though.

  24. In defense of deputy- it does give you a plus flip to get past the concealing. And because they are friendly to themselves, it can be a good spot to toss a low card in a gunfight. I still think I want it to be better than it is.

  26. You seem indeed good for quick judgment 😁... You're righ though Dora is by no mean a top tier Master. But most models in her keyword are playable imo. Ping damage can be surprisingly strong, but you also seem to forget that misery have an other part (the 2" move is ofter more useful than the ping). The keyword can be tricky to play at first and as I said, I think you really need the strong versatile to have a competitive crew. Lysa : well they're 4ss models don't expect too much. They can help to bring people in your bubble with bring it. Aversion: really backward because they

  28. That was exactly my suggestion at some point. Even the rat-carrier joke xD. I use to hire two of them, but only to drop scheme markers near Benny helped by Unclean Influence. At third round or so they can try to run to score something or to deny some points, but really don't feel like a good option. They're too slow, weak and squishy to do anything. One of the worst 4ss models in the game, imho.

  31. 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.

  35. 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.

  36. What about giving them Tundra Hunter? At worst it lets you negate the Cover, but if you set up properly you get a benefit. I wouldnt want the harpoon push to ignore Ice Pillars, I think its intential they stop at them so they are within 1" of them. The Harpooners have a cool Lead the Target trigger, maybe that would be good here as well?

  37. If we talking subtle changes then I like the suggestion of “discard a card or use a soulstone” as long as she also gets “sacrifice to December” Otherwise just dropping the need to discard cards for trigger and maybe adding the “if this model is your leader” clause if there is concern with other ice mirror users loosing it as well. Maybe for models such as the acolyte who suffer worst from ice pillars granting cover. Perhaps taking a page from the Ivan book and not only ignoring cover generated from ice pillars but in fact gaining a bonus as well. That might give them a means to

  38. This ability is situationally amazing. But most oponent will play around it (which is still something because it passively affect the game). But it can be clutch especially when an oponent beater is in your bubble and you lost the initiative. The gravy is forcing a models in candy aura to activate 😎.

  39. To be honest i don't feel like McMourning need anything OOK, except of some Versatile models ofcourse - Dead Rider, sometimes Emissary. Manos is a toolkit, so maybe it worth it.

  40. Yeah, that really is the trouble with the summon option. Every other model in Plague is plenty strong as it is, and Summoning is something you wouldn't ordinarily just tack on to a model, let alone one performing well already. Maybe a new release somewhere down the line, but it's hard to figure out a good spot to slip that option in now.

  41. I agree, she is far, far from unplayable, but I think in the system we have everything has game and great flavor amongst friends. She really only needs the correct nudge to make her be effective at a wider range of things. Her minions need to be able to facilitate hand draining better, and sorrows would have much more game at 4 points, and like a terrifying 10 duel. I think from there , she will just spring to life. Also Give iggy terrifying 10. Call it a day. Maybe give pandora way to interact while engaged. Finished. let the penalty of having no ability to remove models and bad minions be m

  42. I can say your points are valid, and perhaps I didn't provide enough relevant descriptors of why I think he is bad. He just doesn't fit the crew the way that the other models do. He's a 6 point squishy scheme runner and probably the best scheme runner of the crew. While that's a wonderful , beautiful thing to be. It's not great if you are a 6 stone enforcer and you are the sole good scheme runner of a crew. If we were playing a game and I knew iggy was gonna be doing work for you, He would be the first thing I made sure I killed, and I know I could succeed because of how squishy he is. Outside

  43. I certainly have a knack for making good quick judgements and she looks on the weaker side in my estimation. I feel like sorrows, lyssa, and aversions are just dog s. I think that's the problem with open betas is the same you have with any democratic voting situation. You got a lot of not very competent voices that are equally as loud and end up with stuff like this.

  44. I considered hiring them once, but then decided I could get Scheme Markers out with a Malifaux Child and a Prospector for a Soulstone more (that the Prospector promptly gives back), especially since I so often want to be using Unclean Influence after Benny has summoned rats to get the Rat Kings on the field pronto rather than to get rats on the table in the first place. I could see myself playing them if there were a way to summon them (there's a way with every other Plague Minion, it actually feels a bit incongruous), depending on how much that would cost. I could also see a bit o

  46. I’ve only got ‘Dora, Dreamer and Lucius, and I’ll say, I never feel out of options with ‘Dora, but getting a win definitely demands more of me as a player than Dreamer - and playing Lucius is to play on super hard (or impossible, as I’ve never won a game with him).

  48. You won't be spending Soulstone for mutilate( or Chill just to declare it, 2SS to use mediocre trigger? It would make Rasputina even more relying on Freeze Over) and right now you don't even want to attack with it. They are mostly healers and and Ice Pillars generators. Snowstorm is definitely not fine right now, for 1 SS more and being Henchman he is offering even less then Blessed of December. Too OP, Squel would be better. Interesting idea, but being able to push for 8", do simple duel and then hit your opponent for low ram is kinda too strong.

  49. I think it works. It's a problem giving out free suits in aura. There will likely be other issues down the road. Now, you still have to hit those attacks (and dmg in Crockett's case) to keep the chain going. I agree that it feels like a loop hole. Easiest fix would be to make Scent of Blook Once per Activation. If they really think it's a problem that is.

  50. Personally I find this sort of argument invalidates a lot of your points on balance. Firstly because it isnt actually true (traps and Raptors also don't) and secondly I think it is a bad design decision in principle. You arguement isn't that Paul has a problem, but rather just that there is a common ability in one of his keywords that he doesn't have. He also doesn't have adaptive evolution. Just adding these abilities to his card would make him better, but if he isnt currently a problem then making him better may cause a problem. you are basically saying that a chunk the card for a f
