    Getting the gremlin urge.

    Thanks, that's really helpful. I haven't found Brewmaster to be too NPE myself but that's probably because I mainly use him for obey, swill, pay up and binge (plus heals and moon shinobi pushes). I rarely try to play drinking contest style and his 2nd zero is really good imo. I will look into getting ophelia first I think. She seems like a perfect balance of silly fun and puzzle solving. I am a tad sad that both Ulix and Mah weren't mentioned, are they very straightforward in their approach?

    Getting the gremlin urge.

    I currently play Ten Thunders (Asami, Brewmaster and McCabe). I took a bit of a plunge into Neverborn and found them not to my taste, I loved their tricks and thoughtful play opportunities but I find the excessive reliability a tad mundane (lots of high attack stats and things that don't even require a duel). Hence my interest in Gremlins, I like the idea of a faction with lower reliability and fun moments of unexpected kills etc. I just worry that maybe they are simple and whacky. Can gremlins still give that experience of trickery and thoughtful play? If it helps I am currently interested in Wong, Mah, Brewie, Ulix and possibly Ophelia. I think Zipp might be the ticket but I heard he is kinda a NPE for my opponent.

    Painting Oni

    thanks guys, I am liking both the Rackham miniature and the washed out harlequin. I'll give both a go and see which I want to stick with

    Painting Oni

    I had the idea to paint Asami's Oni to be more ghost/daemon like and I wondered if anyone has any advice on how to try and paint things to look like it has limited physical presence. I tried hunting around and only managed to find tutorials on LotR models and it wasn't really the look I wanted. Is it mostly a case of using heavily washed out colours with extreme highlights? what base coat colour works best? white?

    Where to go after shenlong

    That's a shame, I really hoped Yin was a viable alternative to Izamu as while Izamu is clearly excellent I find him a bit uninspired and boring but I guess for Yan Lo there's no way around that...

    Where to go after shenlong

    So I was hoping for a bit of advice on what to grab next. I am currently in possession of Brewmaster box, 3 fermented monks, 3 terracotta warriors, shenlong box, wind serpent, yamaziko, sun quiang, and toshiro. I plan to buy some TT brothers and then either maccabe box or yan lo box. Depending on the master I will grab either yin/izamu or some guild hounds. Would also appreciate if yin or izamu are going to be a better call as I doubt I can fit both. Thanks in advance

    The looking for a vassal game thread

    Newbie looking for a practice game. Uk Time zone. I only have the original schemes and strats for now so no headhunter etc.

    Anyone know of any good youtubers that play Arcanists

    Thanks guys, I'll look at 'em.
  12. As title. I like to watch games and hear discussions and the Malifools is the only Malifaux themed discussion I know of which is mostly about tournies from what I can tell. Thanks.

    Looking for players near me! Birmingham UK

    Damn I forgot to check back on this thread or I would have come down to Wayland's Forge... Any luck with the demos? I am looking to meet people that play down that way if possible. I have been going to Walsall club and it is great but something a bit closer to me would certainly be good as I currently travel on the train.

    New Player, Ramos Crew

    I have those listed ofc as well as essence of power, blessed of december, a bunch of Marcus' models (his old box set) plus raptors, a full 1.5 raspy starter box with snow storm (yeah, be jealous! that old school golem model is soooo sexy ). Not a lot else in the Ramos area to be honest. I inherited some models from someone that quit so it's a bit of a mix of things! I have an extra metal gamin, 2 more union miners, a truck load of arachnids, a swarm arachnid, rail golem (I can proxy the ice golem model np). I can't really take many things I haven't already chosen, just maybe switch the quantities of models around a bit. I did consider essence of power.. the +to SS flips and +1 ca seem really nice for summoning things but I guess 3 SS is a lot for that. Thanks for the toolkit tip! Unfortunately I don't have one or a suitable proxy so not an option at the moment. Stuck with Mr Arachnid for now. I chose Ramos to start because he looked way simpler to learn than Marcus (who I think is a boss but complicated and squishy) and Rasputina I would want some Silent Ones or those guys with harpoon guns (I forget the name) before I gave her a spin. Honestly I don't like playing 50ss while learning the game much but my club members are all wanting to play at that level so it is a necessary evil. Thanks MrFox for changing the title!
