  2. The third game was really long. Both players wanted to be at their best, so it was without the time limit. It was played in two parts across two days.

  5. Hey guys. Been a lurker here for years. Thought i should try to make a blog here or something like that of my malifaux minis, maybe that would give me a "push" to paint more often. So, here's a few for start.

  6. So I was bored, and wanted to help out my playgroup. I have gone through all the maps available on Vassal and defined them, based on tournaments I have been in, or using the rulebook. I did this to make it a lot easier for the newer players to look at what each map does, and makes starting a game a lot simpler and quicker. I tried to keep it consistent throughout all the maps, but some didn't make sense. Also because there are now 57 maps, so I numbered them to decide without looking (random number generator) at names and biasing decision for 1 player or another. What do you

  12. No. A model can't take a second instance of unstackable condition. If Mordrake already has staggered he is not able to get it again.

  13. 2" melee ranges do a lot for Tri-Chi controlling the table preventing interact actions. How about we simplify it even more. Luchadores: This model may declare the Toss In The Mudd action instead of a Action during a charge.

  15. I think it is ambiguous, as there is not necessarily a clear rule to guide on this. However, for consistency, I would assume that it is 'target friendly scheme or friendly shadow marker'. Most abilities like this require the marker to be friendly, so I assume 'friendly' applies to both types of markers. I'm pretty sure that's how the vassal series is playing it as well, but that's nothing official.

  16. I dunno. While I don't have a problem with them ending up at 0", I dislike the maneuverability issues it causes, and the issue that you mention (re Slow). I was an advocate for a minor change to Wrastlers during the playtest, because I love them so much, and they just never seemed to fit. A couple suggestions, old and new. 1) Give Toss In The Mud the melee characteristic. Would allow them to charge and use it (making them mobile condition removalists), and also allow them to do the irresistable Slow aura, as a way of tying up the opponent. Yes, other models have the ability (Man

  20. You know what, you're all right. We cool. I think Hungering Darkness knows he's on the menu for Titania which is why Jakob is no longer a Neverborn master. Neverborn masters are fighting themselves to begin with now, considering Zoraida, Lilith, and Nytemare were clearly in opposition to Titania and Nekima. I think Titania just doesn't like Tyrants at all, shoot-on-sight kinda deal, so "friends close, enemies closer" might not apply to a group of super beings you've been trying to genocide since ancient times.

  21. Buuuut, Nekima can get Brilliance tokens by Jakob's friendly handshakes, wild nights with Beckoners et cetera, so she's not immune to it the way Jakob is, ergo not fit for being the Darkness' vessel. But I apologize for talking crap about your mistress. I do agree she's a cool character and I really dig her spitefulness. In regards to the prophecy: I don' t know enough about Euripides. Does he lie? And wouldn't Titania want to keep Jakob or rather the Hungering Darkness close, to keep it under control? If not, wouldn't she want the Dreamer dead too then?

  22. "Henchman", good joke. If Nekima became the new vessel for Huggie, best believe Lynch is a gonna be a corpse soon thereafter. Besides, I'm pretty sure Titania made Euripides lie to Nekima to get her to fight the nascent Tyrant and his goons rather than try to convince her that Tyrants are the problem. "Fate decrees you will lose to Jakob Lynch" illiciting the response "Fate can go eat shit" from Nekima seems pretty reliable, since she's already tired of the other prophecy that rules her life. But Wyrd writers, seriously, I will fight you if you fridge the God Empress. It'd be such a

  23. I recommend looking beyond 1 master deep and look for where there are overlaps and models that can work in multiple crews to give you options. Since you have Misaki maybe you should look at Shenlong as the Archers overlap between Last Blossom and Monk. This also gives you Charm Warders which are also amazing out of keyword hires in some matches. Alternately you can look at rounding out some of the excellent Thunders versatile models as they will provide even more options and play styles for the Misaki (and any other masters later- except maybe Yan Lo).

  24. I think this is key; if any master "wins" at master select against more than a couple masters across the game, that master probably needs to be looked at. One overturned master can stagnate the game quickly when players start to feel like their options are limited playing into certain factions ("Oh, you're playing Res, so you need to buy VS if you want to play competitively. NVB? then you need Dreamer"). Now, there's an argument to be made about whether games should be balanced around competitive play or not, but if it doesn't hurt bringing new player is, then tuning to high level play cr

  25. Since I’m on call this weekend and therefore functionally living at the hospital, I won’t be able to get much painting done But I’m off to a pretty good start on Yan Lo’s crew! This is a fairly potato pic but I try not to get out the good camera until the whole keyword is finished! Currently working on Genbu the Armor (because big turtles >> reanimated boring armor*) and then it’ll be time for Yin and Manos! *plus I feel like Izamu is gonna be an excellent competition piece if Wyrd decides to run another one in the near future. He’ll get a special base and ever

  26. What if Laz got equipment training? It would give him something to do with his wounds (since there's basically no reason for your opponent to attack him), increase synergy in the crew, give him more utility, and make sure he always has a useful bonus.

  27. Just played my first actual game of Malifaux against my dad at 30 soul stones. McCabe (him) vs lord Cooper (me). We are both enormous noobs so probably messed up a bunch but it was a great time nonetheless! I took Cooper, runaways, Artemis, Ullr, model 9, and a vatagi. He took McCabe, Luna, desper, sidhir, and the Dawn serpent. We played standard deployment with corrupted idols. I took outflank and hold up their forces, he took take prisoner and claim jumps Game ended in a 3-3 tie! Big moments were Cooper being on a positive damage flip against McCabe and flipping a black joker 😡

  28. Yes it is. Still I love the way he works, even though he is under the curve. And that may be the most challenging task. Tweak Marcus but keep the style of play. And I have read several ideas and aspects of Marcus we want to be buffed: -independent hunter -mutation toolbox -AP swap -Card draw -fast -flexibel (Easy leaving Engagement) and so on... My wish would be to keep his jack of all trades style... just buff it but that may exactly be the difficulty as ogrid mentioned before (esp since he now is dual faction)!!!

  29. I don’t think that’s a solution. To me the Cerberus would be nearly as good as before just because it still leaps. Leap is a very powerful action. I just wish to nerf the Cerberus to an even level with SRM, Rougarou (tBW, Groot) so each of them is specialized. This means cutting his leap. and then have a mutation with leap. I think redesigning the Mutations and one or two tweaks here and there is the easiest way to balance the crew. And maybe get rid of the „all mutations are plentiful 2“ idea. Why aren’t there once only mutations and plentiful 3 mutations... this would open things up: l

  30. If NVB get another Versatile (or non-Chimera) Beast, it won't be any problem at all as it won't have any impact on a Arcanist Marcus crew. And yes, the Obeys are only one of Marcus' problem. Lack of survivability compared to other bubble crews (which the crew should not (fluff: stalking hunters) but has to be (for the effects/ressources)). Maybe getting an 7 Stones Summoner (Enforcer; similar to the Forgotten Marshal) could help to give the crew a bump. If he/she could summon Minions up to maybe 7 Stones, the Molemen, Corrupted Hounds and Rattlers might suddenly see more playtime an

  33. Here is a battle report of my Nekima into Nexus. For this game, I tried to take a strong lure effect (Wrath's Bring It!, Since the +2 can overpower the unhelpfully low Mv Cadmus has) as the previous 3 games into Nexus demonstrate to me that Nekima or Matures diving into the ball results in death by the end of turn. It uh... Didn't work. If you don't want to sit through 2.5 hours of salt, TLDR I lose on the master I'm famous for into a good player who's playing Nexus for the first time 0-6. It wasn't even close. And while I had a couple of unlucky moments, I wasn't getting demolished by c

  35. I don't think NVB Marcus could be fixed with only a few NVB exclusive models, and even if it could, that would railroad the list into a few must picks to patch the holes... no thanks... Yes agree totally in that point, Marcus mechanics are all over the place and just doesn't work as intended. And about the summoning, it could be a way but right now he already lacks the resources and I don't think we need more summoners (plus if this new summoner is avaliable for blue, then again NVB is in the loss because no way to get the trigger if he is an enforcer). I'm not a big fan of t

  36. Its still extremely early to be talking about balances. Majority (likely all) of the data is coming from Vassel that although has players from all over the world there are still many top rated players worldwide that have not set foot into it. Wait until the world opens up again and allows tabletop games before shouting "nerf"

  37. I've been saying Wyrd is balancing Neverborn and Nephilim around you for the last year, and nobody wants to listen, even though you are the only one keeping her even remotely relevant. She's not good unless you are much better than your opponent, in a favorable matchup, and you bring a hyper-optimized list. Also hype is overrated. Lilith was plenty hyped in 2e and now we're still waiting for her to come home and fix this fiasco. I've taken hounds before in very specific situations where I wanted some fast and disposable blood bombs. They do yeoman's work against armor.

  38. I said it many times during the beta, nobody listen. @santaclaws01 (and someone else) slapped my booty twice with them while I was uncapable of scoring more than 2 points, between both games. They just got more stuff after that xD It's not a surprise that with 4 games left to play of R1 of February's vassal event, 7 ES players are in the top 15 in one of the groups.

  39. Honestly, I think putting an ability like leap on an upgrade makes it harder to balance. I'm partially basing it on M2E Shifting loyalty campaign, but there are some models out there that get very good if they can leap, and you end up having to consider the effect of leap on any model when you put it on an upgrade. I think Leap is one of the strongest actions out there, and should be used with care. (Although I Know that Vonschill can give it out on an upgrade, but that's at least only 1 use)
