  1. Discussed this with Mason. Henchmen do get 3 actions when leader. Masters always get 3 actions, leader or not.
  2. Mason did say that the highest cost non-Master models will hover around 9-10 ss so as not to compete with Masters as hires. Compared to other models, Masters still get the third action, and generally have more and more powerful options than other models, even if they're not as powerful (which doesn't mean anything because you can't look at them in that context in a way that makes any sense) as 2E Masters. Consider buying a 10ss Henchman/Enforcer and a 5ss Minion vs a 15ss Master. You do get one more action and one more activation (that also doesn't mean much any more), and more board control (area occupation, engagement range, etc.), but the extra action you're getting is not going to be as powerful or interesting.

    Third Edition is Coming!!

    Confirmed (in my conversation with Mason at Gen Con) that Keywords work across faction without penalty or limitations. Beast is not Marcus's Keyword, Chimera is.

    Will the alts be available for sale after the con, like Nekima and Hungering Darkness, or limited releases?

    July 2018 Errata

    If we're gonna say that you need your engine to pump out fresh corpses every turn, we're assuming the summons are still alive (or killed by Lady Justice or something else weird like the Forest Reclaims), and so, one of Nico's 1st turn AP has turned into 10 AP, and on a Hanged, or Punk Zombie, that's absurdly deadly. Also, yeah, he pays a bunch for the engine, but if he gets three good summons in even just one turn, that's almost completely compensated, and that's assuming that Carrion hits nothing with its attack, and the shards don't impact your opponent's positioning at all. Obviously, 1 wound or 5 wounds, summons die, so new corpses will be generated without digging. Kentauroi drop two. Zombies still get buffed by Carrion and Asura. Asura still generates a zombie a turn without essentially any effort, while either debuffing the enemy, or doing damage, and giving your Zombies bonkers attacks (with +flips from Nico, and the ability to reposition before attacking because they're not slow). So, they don't give you cards any more. Oh well, that was too good. Punk Zombies still only need to be healed a little to be an inordinate pain to remove. I kind of agree that the loss of ItW might have been a tiny bit too much. But at the same time, Sandeep retains the ability to do just about everything. Good attacks, teleport, crew buffing, interact shenanigans, 4 AP per turn, summoning. Making him slightly easier to kill is probably not the end of the world.

    Monday Preview - False Witnesses

    I think the last few Monday previews have been for new models as well...

    Final Order

    Just got my shipping, too (US), $21 for all of the Cult +2 extra Breachlings, an extra Horomatangi (Christmas present for my little brother), and a unit of Armored Whelks. Quite reasonable, and not much variance between Commander and Tyrant, it seems.

    Spring League - St. Louis, MO

    In celebration of our new, and wonderful store, Miniature Market, we're going to have a Spring League! Rebirth and reinvigoration of our community! Players of all experience levels are welcome! Starting the week after Adepticon, we'll run for 6 weeks, culminating in a tournament! How will this work? So new players aren't overwhelmed by options, and veterans get a chance to tune up their skills on either a new Master, or an old favorite, you'll pick a single Master and their crew box as a base, and build 50 point lists from there! You'll play the same Master and crew box each week, and in the tournament, but your add-ons can vary from game to game! The tournament will have Guilders and Mystery Boxes as prizes, but what about the League? Obviously, the League will have cookies! The final night will have cookies for everybody, and three awards will be given out, one for Best Painted, one for Best Sport, and one for Points? Achievement points! Small list, simple to track! You get a point if you: Show up! (1 point a week, with a bonus if you show up every week), Play a game! (1 point per game with a bonus if you get at least one game in a week, and a further bonus if you play on a day other than Thursday), Win a game! (With a bonus if you don't lose a game), Play with a painted crew! (With a bonus if your crew is fully painted the whole time), Paint a new model! (With a bonus if you paint a new model every week). Starts 3/29 at 5pm at Miniature Market (13380 Manchester Rd, St. Louis, MO 63131) ends 5/10, (tournament details forthcoming).

    Branded bags & shaped foam trays?

    Yeah, I've already ordered a Battlefoam magnarack. This stuff is too big and weirdly shaped for foam. Wouldn't mind a branded bag, but if not, I ordered patches.
