  1. You know that never even occured to me but now you mention it...yeah - they definitely give a strong Dwemer vibe! Well I'll leave that to Caedrus. I'm fine either way since... ...I just managed to finish the Wrastlers in time (sorry for the poor quality pic)! I wasn't too excited about getting these boys done but now they're finished, I'm pretty satisfied with the overall aesthetic. Anyway, @Caedrus - you can put me down for 15 SS this month, or 78 SS if you feel it's appropriate to include the 21 improperly based steam arachnids!

  2. Super impressive work this month, y'all. The creativity and originality of this group is always motivating. I finished the 1988 crew which was a real nightmare to assemble. Had to get creative. I also managed to complete the Blood Hunter in a day. Today, in fact. And I completed Von Schtook, using the undercoat method. He's getting a wood slat base soon, maybe tomorrow. @Caedrus That's 33ss for me, thanks.

  3. Well, it's got some paint on it, but painted... Not finished definetly. @Caedrus It's been a fun challenge, see how far I could get within one day. It's a shame too many other things got in the way, hehe. @Maogrim Let's see if tomorrow we can convince her to spare my life ^^'

  4. Been a very long time since I've posted anything, but I've got a lot done over the lockdown. Here are my completed crews (fancy bases by Micro Arts Studios, they do great 30mm, 40mm, and 50mm bases for Malifaux). Resurrectionists first! Prof. Albus Von Schtook - Transmortis Dr. Douglas McMourning - Body of Evidence Aloysius Nicodem - Open Graves. Yeah the Rabble Risers are in Molly's keyword now, but I'm a traditionalist Jack Daw - Guilty As Charged. This monochrome look took me a while to get the hang of but I'm very plea

  5. There you go! Crew completed!!!! 👍👍 Carver is challenging, simple but lots going on.. The face especially those wrinkles are very easy to wash away and very hard to highlight properly without ultra fine brush and steady hand... If you add the glow it's east to mrss up. I decided to not wiggle with it any longer, as I'm happy to play with it as it is. I'll take proper pictures with the whole lot.

  6. Greetings, fellow painters, and welcome to the Monthly Painting Challenge for March! Everything you need to know for the Challenge is right HERE. March (according to my shallow internet research) has two birthstones, being bloodstone and aquamarine. In addition, the flower of March is the Daffodil. Red, blue, yellow. So, here's a challenge for you. Paint a single Malifaux miniature in the month of March, using ONLY the primaries, black and white. Sounds easy, but if you're anything like me, your paint-mixing skills could do with a little upkeep. Have a fantastic March, look

  9. So I've got a bit of a good news/bad news situation today. The good news is that I've painted a tonne of stuff his month! The bad news is that none of it is Malifaux/TOS... Yep - that's a full Dwarf army for Kings of War, about 3/4 of which i painted this month. Granted, it includes 21 Steam Arachnids, but i don't think they'd count! Anyway, i have made *some* progress on a trio of Wrastlers, so hopefully I'll be able to finish them off in the next (looks at clock)... 5 1/2 hours. 😬

  10. What's on everyone's wishlist for Gaining Grounds 2? Hopefully we will see it within a few months, so exciting to speculate! For me, I'd like to see: Only one strategy focused on killing (instead of 2 like this season) A return to strategies that you can pre-load/accomplish before the turn where you score them But with a denial element, like with plant explosives and turf war I think these two steps would go a long way to fixing 'oppressive' crews, since often you can counter those crews with aggressive scoring.

  11. So every other cool kid are doing it : let's talk about March vassal tournament for the purple team. No restriction this time (other than single master and no DMH). Cool, since Serena is needed in so many scenario/ matchup. R1 is a pretty open map, with some blocking and Impassable terrain. I have a soft spot for Dora here (I don't think she's that bad at playing Symbol) event though the scheme pool is not super good for her. At least we can build a nice castle (especially in the top part of the map). Beside my personal feeling for Dora, I think Zoraida will do really well in that sc

  12. Got a decent amount of work done on my Apex Crew. And a fisherman to use as a proxy for a Harpooner And of course no apex crew is complete with out a model that overhangs like a mofo That means the only models I have left are crypsis corps (who I don't even use that much, so ... shrug). And for anyone who says the rex is too big... clearly he isnt, he's basically the size of a puppy.... I also put together a few bone piles. So @Caedrus that puts me at 68 for the month.

  14. I'm going by the results page so I couldn't tell you what masters we're used, it just seemed like more positive news which I thought was great As I said if it's an actual issue I would rather it was changed, and whilst I'm definitely in the we need more evidence and time camp I can appreciate everyone's point of view I've seen claims in discord and messenger that multiple EXS masters are broken so I'm glad to see that so far the data doesn't back that up. Colette has definitely caused problems here in the UK tournament scene (when it was for actual in person events) and ha

  15. I will say this every time... I want Turf War back! It has been my favorite strategy since I started the game. It's killy, it's tactical, it's countertactical. It's 5 moves ahead chess while someone is trying to kill you.

  18. Like, well, all of Malifaux 3rd Edition, the Outcasts' 4-5 soulstone models are nearly unplayable (with a few exceptions). That list includes: Desperate Mercenary Bandido Winged Plague Student of Conflict Since this is a problem that's epidemic to the entirety of M3E, nothing really needs to be said. Outside of that, these are the culprits: Talos One of the most singularly useless models ever devised, Talos does shitall. He does impressively shitall. He does so shitall that other completely worthless models take notes on how to be more useless from obse

  19. I would like to see a strategy that will benefit large non summoning crew. Some idea for this : - Area control (by models without a summon upgrade) - Reversed killing strat (focus on keeping models alive) - Multiple interacts needed (or helping greatly with the scheme goal). For example : You need to charge-up a generator somewhere on the centre line (or for the gremlins keep an alambic running) by interacting within 2" of it). Each interact action give a charge. You need turn x2 charges to score (or something like this). I would also really like to se asymmetrical

  20. As Third Floor Wars one put it on a podcast, the question isn't "is the master better in faction X or Y," but rather, "does this master answer questions A, B, or C in my faction?" Hoffman is a good generalist that requires the opponent to tech hard or deal with tough attrition. Guild Hoffman has some particular anti-counters (eg., No Prisoners' riot gear is a help against, say, hazardous terrain pings from Titania or Mah Tucket) and can beef up defenses on Joss or Howard with an extra LLC. Phiona Gage allows the crew to play in a whole different fashion, even if she's an expensive piece a

  22. And... Finally starting the month challenge! Wish ne luck, since I've got plenty of things to do today, but I will manage to paint an archer as Misaki requires reinforcementa and we do not want to disapoint the Boss.🤫😚 I envy you guys, the entries this far look great!

  23. So there's a trick you can give it a Rocket Launcher, shoot, then Armoury from the Steam Trunk the Rocket Launcher to a Grenade Belt or Land Mines and use that bonus action because Flying Piglets don't have their own Bonus Action. ..... but mostly it's to see pigs with Rocket Launchers & Rocket Boots.

  25. I pulled these back into an excel spreadsheet because I wanted this particular format showing matchups. You CAN go to the events tab, sort it by faction, then sort it by round, and get all of our scheme selections, which also allows you to click over and get each game. Let me talk more to the data guys ...

  27. But it's a 7+ of anything vs a 3+. I'd take built in vs suit required. Also, can't you just put the Rocket Boots on her and copy them, then they'd never go away and she'd always have them.

  30. I played him exclusively for the end of 2019 and start of 2020 probably about 9 months total in guild. i had a fixed list that after some tweeking i was taking to tournaments and always preformed well. Not taken him in Explorer's yet due to covid stopping tabletop games and real life allowing no time for Vassel games. I have theory fauxed some meme lists with him in Explorer's but all in all i would still be happy to take my fixed guild list into any master or scheme pool.

  31. If I'm not mistaken there's is no SS limit for OOk or versatile in the march vassal tournament. Maybe, it depend on a lot of think... But also, Malifaux is not just about killing... I still think Titania is a better overall master than Nekima who is mostly a beatstick (also if you want to pit them against each other you have to put IR on Titania as well 😁... Thematically that could be a fun experiment!).

  32. Well sadly my last game ended in the dead guys just missing out, my opponent lynch to deal with incorp and ended up getting a 6-5 win, i missed a symbol turn 3 which was the desiding points (4-3 on strats points and we both got 1 from both our schemes) He took martyrs of tannan and huggy and leave your mark (I was expecting leave your mark and didn't expect to stop the first point) and I took vendetta (onryo vs tannan) and martyrs of lost love and jakuna (he didn't kill either and so I scored the end point with lost love getting a symbol and jakuna engaging gwen)

  33. Sure; I agree that Arcanists can run a more powerful Hoffman than Guild and that they're a stronger faction in general. I also agree that Peacekeeper with SS Cache is nuts. But if someone is playing Guild the question is still, "How do I run Guild Hoffman" and not "Should I switch factions to run this master more effectively?"

  35. I just assume "killed" is "wounded severely in battle and need to take a few nights off to recover." Lost an arm? That's at least 36 hours to heal that back.

  39. @Caedrus This is my work of February. 15ss for Sandeep 7ss for Banasuva 8ss for Kandara 18ss for the 3 Oxfordian mages (6ss each) 18ss for the 3 Wind gamins (6ss each) 12ss for the 3 Ice gamins (4ss each) That is a total of 78ss. Actually I painted the Mysterious Effigy too, but I didn't post a before picture. It is worth 4ss, so, if it counts, the should be 82ss instead of 78ss.

  41. So, @Caedrus, did the one-day-challenge and am ready to hand in the results: Just a Depleted, but I think he turned out alright. EDIT: Forgot to add that this jolly little chap puts me at 18 Stones for the month. Yeah, sure, that's nearly as impressive compared to what others are pumping out, but slow and steady wins the race, and I don't want to run out of stuff to paint if supply chain difficulties in Western Europe continue through the year.

  43. Same idea with Companion upgrade on Mad Dog Brackett in a Von Schill Crew: VS yolo throws Mad Dog 5 inches and chain activates him to get Mad Dog shooting Min3 armor ignoring right away. Even stronger if you can use emissary to push Made Dog and drop a scheme marker for fast

  44. Yeah, when I've played Parker the Emissary is always there and always give Mad Dog the Memento upgrade. They almost always activate together with the Emissary going and moving Mad Dog with Weary Road and dropping the scheme marker to give Mad Dog fast. They're so good together.

  46. Correct, you can have a Void Hunter bury another model and then double walk to move the lodestone 18 inches in a single activation.

  47. It lets you use a bonus action and while 6" is how far you can throw it, you have to be within 1" do take the action. If the idea is to throw it to the model taking the action that's pretty big. You can also have the scion take the action while buried which could be interesting.

  49. If Zipp is your Leader & you hire Von Schill, you can attach Equipment upgrades to Flying Piglets because they are non-Beasts Minions. Draw Essence & Festering Wounds can be copied by a Malifaux Child with no flip so it will always go off even though -2 Stat. Dead Outlaws can "Obey" The Guilty into being a Min 3 beater, really making the enemy want to kill The Guilty.
