    'The Damned' Grimly Fiendish always reminds me of the Ressers in general and Nico in particular. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIpv0fQW4YU

    Nicknames and avatars

    My name comes from a "stage name" of mine. It started with the nickname I acquired in my late teens from a character in the 'Spell Singer' series of books, Mudge was a short, bow legged, smart mouth talking otter whose ideas usually landed the group in trouble. A number of friends read the books and decided that was me so it stuck. I later needed a stage name, so I used it and added my favorite color as a last name. I have carried the name for better than 30 years now as an alias. The Avatar is a picture of one of my daughter's favorite shirts, a unicorn puking rainbows. It speaks to me......

    Favourite Malifaux Stories

    I think my favorite story is in one of the 1-1.5 books (forgive me, I have misplaced them and can't cite the story) which involves a stagecoach ride shared by Rusty Alyce, the "original" Victoria, a woman named Dora and her baby.

    Alt Lazarus Arrives!

    Sooooo many Happinesses!
  12. MudgeBlack

    Why is Tara considered so good?

    Why yes, I have heard he is! Thanks for the fun I had with that list.
  13. MudgeBlack

    Why is Tara considered so good?

    I ran a list that another player suggested (sorry I can't properly credit it) that involved 4 abominations for cards and activations with the last forming them into the desolation engine, Death Marshall to bury Rusty Alice, Malifaux child using Tara's ability to fast and bury Lazarus, Tara burns Oath keeper (if needed) unburying both Laz and Alice, Alice gives Laz reactivate, then Laz activated twice healing and raining down 4 shots with each activation (fast plus rapid fire then oath keeper plus rapid fire). Wasn't always effective but it was fun.
  14. MudgeBlack

    Comment on list in local Tournament Parker? Viktoria?

    I second the Emissary with Parker if you can fit it.
  15. MudgeBlack

    Parker with Bishop and Hans

    Typically with Parker I run a combination of: Sue (with Return Fire), Johan (Oathkeeper), Dead Outlaw (in pairs of possible), and Parker doesn't leave home without the Hodgepodge Emissary (throws trinkets around and drops enemy scheme markers in convenient places for Parker and dead outlaw).
