    Returning to Miasaki ME2, mixed feelings.

    The smoke upgrade is a good option, if it actually blocks los then( cant remember if it does) it would mitigate the gun line a bit 18 treat comes from the austringers focus attack that are not a shooting attack so no face in the crowd ability unfortunately they also ignore terrain and do not require lols. On average 2 of them kill a single medium wound model a round with impunity. The guild riflemen are there to block a lane between the los blocking terrain which becomes a complete kill zone. With Captain Dashel they get to focus as 0 action and they keep there focus thanks to hold. Via firing lane they get an amazing dmg potential with a minimum of 4 dmg for the last Riflemen. That is pretty scary and demoralizing to face. We play on about a 60-70% terrain coverage it is jut hard to not get hit by stuff with so much focus, even If I am in soft cover he still get a + flip to hit and ++ to dmg. That is not to say they are unbeatable, quite the opposite but it is a dam boring thing to face unless you have the tools to counter it. You are indeed correct sometimes one simply have to accept amiss ^^.

    Thanks for the reply! Yes the Torokages stas are amazing! They just haven't worked for me in Me2 yet. This comes down to 2 things 1: they need to charge through impiding terrain( IE a failed charge)2: I cant hit what I am striking at. To elaborate about point 2, they have a MI:5 with a + which means as soon as a defence 6 model gets in there way I will miss it. The flip will go down some ting like this: I flipp for attack drawing a 10! Sweeet money shot! Opponent draws a draws a 11. Dam! I need to cheat in my 13 in my hand to hit him. Which I do, opponent counter cheats with his 13 and nothing happens. Anecdotal evidence for sure but I don't really feel there killyness as of right now. My 3 regular opponents are guild( IE Riflemen and Austringer), Showgirls and Vics. I have a hard time fighting any of these gentlemen's forces with The Torokage, Guild kills me dead from 14-18 away which I harsh specially if one is playing turf war. Showgirls have a million models+rules generally I just have a hard time fighting them in any scenario that is not reckoning^^ Vics simply outfights me, dam dirty ronins^^! It is kinda sad that my crews unique models apparently got worse between editions. Ototto can be pretty good in scheme were you have to guard something I guess. I do not have any more ten thunders models, wanted a kind of malifaux version of big trouble in little china whit ninjas doing cool stuff. Guess there is a need to buy some models I dont really want then( except fro Sidir he is awesome
  4. Hello! I brought out my ten thunders for Me2. I usually play ressers but have dabble in Thunders in Me1.5 and beta. My great fondness for Miasaki and her flexibility in taking on various schemes are what drives my hand in picking Thunders! The 50SS list is pretty much her box sett, 1 ten thunders archers and Yamaziko. This is the point were things go south for me. I feel that my 3 Torokage an Ottoto never really do any thing( particulary Ottoto) . They are usually the victim of spells our lead poisoning around turn 3, in 4 games the 3 torokage have killed: 1 mechanical pigeon, 1 ronin. Ottoto have killed a ronin. The Torokage have saved me a game by dropping a lot of scheme markers for a line in the sand game 3, even though any non peon would do the trick. I try playing them as some sort of flank killer is that a tactic which they are not suited for?The Torokages stats makes them excellent killers on paper but I feel they lack any movement ability to make them actual ninjas instead of well trained goons in pjs. Pleas do any of you fine gentlemen have a good suggestion for the use of Torokage and Ottoto in a Miasaki list?

    A few of my crews

    Good day! Of the crews shown I prefer Seamus crew, it has a good solid blue( I would have a bit more defined shade but that is perhaps the photograph). The shading on the bag is solid(odd but it drew my eye) and the basing is great. I am afraid to comment on Nicodems crew. The punks skins are great, in fact I come to regret panting mine in a old fashion zombie flick blue when I saw your Crew. But the undertaker himself and Mortimer is more difficult to judge, the flash takes away all the shades/highlight of the black. Would it be possible to repost a better photograph of Nicodem? Otherwise impressed by the sheer amount of painted crews you can put on the table. I tip my hat.:Hiding_Puppet:
  6. Hardly old chap! I have been entertaining guests. Shame that I were not able atend todays game. Here is doxie: Another Punk: And a WIP Copycat:
  7. The humble Punk zombie. Lovely model, but I botched the union jack t-shirt and for some reason the teeth are black?
  8. God evening my fellow lads, lassies and living impaired! A wargamer for some years, I have started with Malifaux and it is smashing! With only about 6-7 games under the spats and I am in, hook line and sinker. I choose everyone's favourite dandy serial-killer, love how tough the bastard is. The alternative model screams evil dead and I am afraid that my painting skill are no contender for this sculpt, none the less it was fun to paint. In retrospect the hat should have been blue. The avatar is dripping with character and was one of the most interesting painting experience I have had, for a long time( painted a lot of warjacks not going to lie). I realised that the watch is no longer attached. Convict gunslinger “aka Bartholomew” was the model which attracted me to the game. The downtrodden end of the line feel of the models is great. Mange to paint some tattoos( tried for an Victorian era sailor colour of dark green) but I don't think they turned out to well. And for the ladies! Mortimer is a dapper chap. A dedicated man working close to the management but not squeamish about doing garden work and dirtying his hands with some good old fashioned work. Harlots and Punks to come. And I apologise for the bad photographs, i it is not my cup of coffe.
