  2. We now have a new title So Marcus is getting his hands dirty to fight Cooper. Melee beast Marcus. Surprisingly easy to get 4-6 mutations out a turn with Myranda and an Initiate or two. Myranda giving the positive df (combined with always in cover Marcus) makes it hard to shoot him. And almost as hard to charge him. He can hit a 4/6/8 damage track, with positive on the charge. Myranda can make him charge on her activation. And/or heal him. Which can trigger more mutations being handed out! The birds are decent schemers. Worst case you target a friendly to get scheme markers where you need em’. And they are fast as heck with flight. Depending on who you are facing they might need the camo mutation. I think I’ll want the camo mutation on Myranda whenever possible. Vogel might be handy a lot in this crew (both forms). Paul can get Marcus attacking as well.

  3. His interpretation is correct, cover via the shadow and concealment are generated by those sightlines being blocked, or crossing over the relavent terrain (like trees or the barrel your hiding behind) However, if you don't need LOS, you don't draw sightlines and therefore ignore the terrain, stuff like bodyguard and exhaust still count

  5. I’m taking a little break from Malifaux painting. Wanted to paint some bigger models - and just enjoy the ease of assembly in GW. So here’s the WIP of a couple of Ogroids.

  6. Oh yes, please do this. I want spider banjos. As far as the guild hiring spider people, Sonia Crid can use the weird spider spell eaters so it's not impossible.

  7. Checking in to the fun a bit later this month as I've just returned from my holidays. Not too much time left in August but here's my bold plan anyway : Nothing really Ahab about it though I will be painting one of the big guys on my first Wyrd Stream on Tuesday

  8. I'm disappointed he lost the Beastmaster ability. Even if it's only a 1 soul stone tax to bring in an OOK beast now it still feels bad, as that's one of the things I like about playing him in NB (although I acknowledge I still have Myranda to shapeshift). With all that said, I like the passive upgrade mechanic and I really like that they didn't make it an aura around him, so you can spread your "packs" across the board. I also really like that he has the most bizarre defensive tech I've ever read on a card (permanent cover by virtue of the fact that he's constantly surrounded by weedy undergrowth). Overall I'm excited to get him on the table, and this may finally be the excuse I needed to get the Slate Ridge box so I'll have the bears to bring in instead of my NB beasts

  9. Not illogical from a story point of view though. Kirai was targeted by a Guild Captain(?) and Francis took the hit for her, then Kirai (the original target) extracted Vengeance. Or from a real life perspective, someone throws a water balloon at you, hits someone else, but you get splashed - you'd still take revenge. Well you might be very nice and wouldn't, but I would. But I don't disagree that the rules could do with some cleaning up.

  14. @Caedrus my initial pledge is finished. Gracie: 8 SS worth. Mancha roja: 10 SS worth. 3 x Wrastlers: 5 SS worth each, so 15 SS. 2x Bayou smugglers: 6 SS worth each, so 12 SS. That's a total of 45 SS, for the moment... Now, I pretend to paint the Jedza Core Box before de August is over. Jedza is already half painted... I was so eager to paint these miniatures that I totally forgot to take the picture before painting. 😅

  16. I'm curious, do you also let your opponent look at your hand once you get to that point? Or to at least tell him what cards aren't in your discard pile? Officially under the rules you can't look at the last card, and you can't spend too long looking at your discard pile... So unless you can process information very quickly or have a sorting method for your discard pile (without changing the order), I don't think most people could actually figure out the last card in a reasonable timeframe.

  18. One of my first games with Marcus was vs Hoffman so I brought the Beast within, Angle Eyes, and Hinamatsu to bring all the armor piercing.

  19. I just didn't have a chance to test him and didn't want to bring him in a pool without having used him xD I'ved used him once in the Grow League and he seems... Okay. He has a TON of utility - can move your models around, heal them, draw cards, etc. But the rest of the keyword has those tricks in one way or another. I wonder if he is better for arcanists, maybe? I also don't like having another model that I have to discard to, since cards can already be tight on some turns. So overall... Not much of an opinion yet xD

  20. Due to the top 16 I may not get a chance to make that Marcus video anytime soon, so I hope the videos in this thread are helpful enough! @Ogid you once asked me to make Neverborn Marcus, and going 3-1-0 in a world series month (albeit an easier one) I think does a pretty good job of that! Have a look at the games from the month. Feel free to ask me any further questions here, and if I get the energy I'll try to make a video! Winter energy levels tend to be a bit lower.

  21. Just play it casually. That is play the game for the fun of it, not for winning, not to prove that you’re a tactical genius, not for bragging rights. Just play it to spend some time with a Mate and push little dollies around.

  22. The Master was played through a bonus action and summoning (stitched together mostly). This was taken away from him. Then they broke the only doctor of the faction. Now he was given a useless 2/3 title.

  23. Keeping Widow Weaver near dying models is often your best bet for that. Don't forget that she's a Nightmare model within 6 of herself so if you really need a Stitched you can tenderize an enemy model with one of your beaters then have WW pop up near it and finish it off to grab a stuffing token. The Nightmare crew has enough killing power that stuffing tokens aren't too hard to get. Otherwise, your best sources are bringing some disposable Wicked Dolls or bringing Zoraida as a second Master to summon and explode the Voodoo Doll.

  24. Surely he gives as much support to the Jackalope as normal Marcus? I.e. one upgrade/turn. I mean you can choose not to in order to prioritise another model but that's the same dilemma Marcus has always faced.

  25. the anti place aura may be huge. i think is the most unique thing he have ask tara where does she want to summon stuff. or any sumoner that does in contact with itself

  26. Something I like about Tara 2 is that she makes aonius much less necessary. She has both the ability to unbury friendly models and generate pass tokens. I noticed a similar thing with Yan Lo2 and chiaki. I think they're trying to make specific utility pieces not feel like they're mandatory to play the crew.

  29. This is I suspect going to be the crux and peak of the learning curve for Alpha Marcus. As long as you can keep Beast/Chimera within 4 of others then the mutation conga line is just going to work, the true second level player even works the line so 9/10 the right mutation is on the right model at the right moment. But, especially with the Empyrean Eagles, clearly geared as fast scheme runners that can operate from a distance I can see circumstances where they end up out by themselves and nothing is within the bubble bounce mutation aura. Still, I like on principle, really plays into the angry, frenzied beast aspect of Marcus. As we've generally seen, different and still thematic, power tier generally on par with OG version of master. My big disappointment is that this doesn't really help the underwhelming Beasts, I feel like the crew will largely consist of the same high value Beasts as OG Marcus. In particular I was hoping for some synergy or boost play for Razorspines (now three in a box, but why, we could have had poison play) and also the poor Molemen, still safely consigned to be largely a useless points sink. Guess I'm hoping to see errata work which boosts some of the underutilised Beasts and at least give both Marcus versions some options for crew variety without taking models which just seem to be less value efficient. General thoughts on Alpha 😁, on Empyrean Eagle 😄, on wider Arcanist Beast crew flexibility and alternatives 🤨.

  30. For additional context, though, my view is a bit skewed because... I always thought that start of activation worked based on simultaneous effects (and you couldn't generate new ones). FAQ then confirmed this. I always thought double terrifying didn't work with take the hit because of simultaneous effects (and then you don't generate new ones). FAQ appeared to confirm this to me. So I'm of course going to go in with some confirmation bias here.

  31. Well, keep in mind that the start of the FAQ is just about simultaneous effects. If you view simultaneous effects as applying to the whole ruling, then vengeance couldn't possibly be related to the FAQ (it is like 3 steps later in the process).

  32. Not to mention with predatory instincts, you can get double positive to the damage flip which is pretty useful. Having something your opponent really wants to cheat against has some value by itself. Between eagles and crockett, people may run out of things to make you miss xD

  33. I think the FAQ was trying to address a timing issue more than what “targets” vs “targeted” means. Considering that the ability doesn’t trigger until after damage is dealt, the Gwisin is the current target of the action while taking damage. So it was still targeted by the action, just not “targeted” for the sake of an ability which only triggers in the declare targets step, like terrifying. I think you would need to prove that TTH somehow changes the target of the action without changing the target, which either breaks TTH or the action resolution.

  34. I do appreciate how Alpha captures the feel how how diverse Marcus' gameplay could be in 2e due to his upgrades, regardless of how we ultimately decide to rank him on the tier list. "Law of Meat" is so iconic Marcus to me that I'm happy to see it used as an ability name again.

  35. you cant hire beasts without paying extra... the. 4/6/8 looks impresive but the initiates can do 4/5/6 just as easy. losing acomplice is a thing. .. i think he fill the role of a beater instead of suporting 3/4 models every turn who is suporting him? i ' ll give it a try but i'm not sure what kind of game will make this version better

  36. Mv8 with Feathered Wings, and Initiates/Myranda can make them walk. Adaptive Evolution + Predatory Instinct means you can either be at to hit or at to hit with to damage. Give them Natural Camouflage and they'll be able to go scheme uninterrupted most likely. The main problem here is that the new Marcus has even less upgrades to spare than the old Marcus. Unless they're planning on widely buffing the lacklustre beasts I'd say this title is strong on its own but fails to fix the problems in Chimera. I want to have a reason to buy Molemen. I've been holding out for two editions now and it's only getting easier as time goes on. Razorspines and Slate Ridge Maulers could use a boost as well.

  37. Sadly the trigger is enemy only, and with just stat 4, that's not very reliable. Honestly I don't think the birds will see much play. Marcus looks solid though.

  38. I played 1 game where my opponent reached his last card and went for an attack confident that the card was the red joker. It wasn't. That was when we discovered he had dropped the red joker into his figure case... Anyway, enough of the funny story. I would look strangely at someone that looked at the last card of their deck. I understand your concept that you could have tracked the information, but I think I'd rather you actually tracked the information than just got the end advantage of doing so. (I know that it would be much more time consuming to do so, but I also expect you'd make mistakes, or confuse yourself each turn as to what is remaining. The mental space to keep track of that isn't free). I may be in the minority on that, but I would be happier for you to slow the game down to track the information rather than just look at the card at the end and pretend you had done that hard work.

  39. Hey, it's a stylistic thing and there's no accounting for taste. Also, some people are just instantly triggered by anything other than solid black base-rims.
