    Marcus at the crossroads

    Would you mind reformating the first two posts by just copying and pasting with the default disposition? THey're very difficult to view. Nice to see some Marcus! It's always tricky to play when you are unfamiliar with the schemes. I've heard a lot of people state that gg18 can be difficult to get into.

    Duncan's Sonnia List Question

    Something like this, don't know if he has tweaked it more since then. 50 SS Guild Crew Sonnia Criid + 5 Pool - Cherufe's Imprint (1) - Counterspell Aura (1) - Cherufes Parting Gift (1) Malifaux Child (3) Dr. Grimwell (9) - Expert Sleuth (1) Francisco Ortega (8) - Wade In (1) - Hermanos de Armas (1) Papa Loco (7) - Numb To The World (1) Guild Investigator (6) Watcher (4) Brutal Effigy (4) The investigator and Francisco pushes her and Francisco + Loco buffs her. Don't remember the intricates of activation order. You keep her somethat safe and Grimwell does the last push. It is pretty tricky to stay safe from it since Grimwell will push her the last bit needed and she can chain activate after he goes.

    Nellie vs Perdita and Question

    How did Nino ruin your day? Him drawing LoS to a model behind your wagon should be exceedingly rare so I'm not sure why you had trouble pushing it. Nellie is pretty strong, you can't really get around that. All masters were not created equal and Nellie is arguably the best guild master. From my quick calculations it also looks like you are over 50ss? Edit: I put it into the app and your list clocks in at 54 ss so your opponent shouldn't feel too bad. You should have had two upgrades less and a 4ss cache or played without the field reporter. Your opponent had a list with only wave 1 models so that might have also have been a slight disadvantage. The Judge's upgrade is pretty costly and probably didn't end up doing much? Maybe two debts or LLCs instead of the Judge's upgrade would have gotten more use. His upgrades aren't super efficient but Nellie and Phiona make Dig their graves jokingly easy even when playing with the same amount of soulstones. Since Nino doesn't stop Nellie from dropping markers maybe he could have been left at home. Then again that Perdita list should have been able to obliterate some of your models from far away. Did Perdita push up to start pressuring you turn one? With Francisco's buff she could probably have tanked quite well and she is also immune to the lawyer's debuff. Papa Loco is a model that can perform spectacularly but does not always make back his points. From your report it sounds like Loco exploded on his own crew? That's not great and will turn a match. If he had exploded in your crew because your opponent out-activated and delivered Loco with a Brutal Emissary of his own the match might have looked a bit different.
  4. I don't think it would double, it's more of a "are you or are you not in contact with such a marker" kind of statement. If anything certain people would argue that if you are touching two markers you don't fulfill the condition since you aren't in contact with "a marker" but two markers. I think this argument isn't correct.
  5. I'm guessing masters that need corpse markers will have some way of generating those in theme. The emissary creating cover and zombies is a super good thing for most ressers in m2e so anyone using corpses or thinking they'll need some mobile cover in m3e would probably still consider the emissary a pretty good model. I guess that is the point of having versatile models, if everyone have everything in theme there isn't much point of having versatile models in the game. Hopefully there will be a tradeoff in versatility vs survivability/damage output/etc. so that the emissary will be a good pick in certain setups but the in theme models will have a role in other setups.
  6. This looks fun! I like the growth mechanic for effigies. Not sure if you'll be able to hire the emissary with the effigy and then grow it so you have two emissaries but that was my first thought. I don't mind picking the emissary because I actually like the emissary rules and not because I need some ability for my master. Master patches and upgrades to open up new playstyles should go on the master themselves or optional totems in my opinion. I'll happily keep using my old avatars as the new generic emissaries, it makes more sense for avatar Sonnia to join Lady Justice than to have Sonnia in two different states of time on the same board. I did greatly appreciate the option to still use my avatar models so I hope they stay legal as proxies.
  7. That discussion was highly relevant to the first question, I also realise I contradicted myself from just a few months ago. I guess that should resolve the second question as well.
  8. Had a quick look atthe rulebook during lunch. Crews are made up of models, scheme markers are friendly to one crew but are not a part of your crew. That means if someone else kills an enemy model near your adze it can choose to count as a scheme marker but if adze made the kill itself you can't both be considered to have killed an enemy model with your crew and count that adze as a marker. Your opponent scoring schemes against adze seems like a major headache. I guess it is immune to all schemes targeting it so you should give your opponent a heads up on that before the game so they don't choose it for schemes. I would assume the rule was meant for when adze's controller is calculating VP but as I read the current wording it does seem to make it immune to pretty much all the schemes in the game that require scoring against enemy models. I guess adze spam could be disruptive in certain scheme settings.
  9. Sorry for jumping the gun on that one, I didn't double check my app but went from memory. Quoting the relevant rule in the question is both allowed and highly appreciated so everyone doesn't need to go to their app/books.

    Mirror Match Advice

    Nellie is a solid pick in Ours! and should handle those schemes well. Sonnia isn't a fan of big beefy models with armour so something like a Peacekeeper can throw a spanner in her works. As a general rule spreading out and having armour and/or many wounds on most models will mess with Sonnia herself. She can still pick a crew for ignoring armour of course. Perdita is a bit tricky, to survvive her it's good to have armour and cover at the same time. My favourite picks are McMourning and (neverborn) Lucius. McMourning brings Sebastian who can put up a cover aura and can use his upgrade to hire waldgeists. Lucius in neverborn can use waldgeists to set up cover and use illuminated as missiles or various lures to bring Francisco into comfortable striking range for you to take him out. Generally Perdita is somehwat less comfortable if you can take out Francisco early so lures are always good. Taking him out usually hurts her both offensively and defensively. I'm not sure what Nellie has to hinder shooting, you might need to out-activate while you are safe turn one and use a beefy mofo that you push up and give fast to try and wreck the hell out of Perdita's list (Francisco first) and put her on the defensive. If she's only doing weak damage she isn't that bad so hard to wound and a big pile of wounds is usually good against her. That being said she is likely deleting a decent model per turn if you give her good shooting angles so keep a close watch on her range and try to prioritise killing family models so she can't push just any way she likes. If she's pushing backwards to escape a 3" engagement turn 2 or is forced to walk closer to strike the model tying her down you have at least controlled who she gets to attack so some of your models can do their stuff in relative peace.
  11. Yep, favourite trick of Rasputina and Avatar Sonnia (in campaigns).
  12. I think the first question was discussed recently (here or in the neverborn subtopic), try searching for that question. In question 2: No, they will still score. Adze is still Adze it can just count as a scheme marker as well, it doesn't stop being the model.

    Daydream and corpse marker??

    I love stitched, you always know something is dying. They're also one of my most hated models, it seems to correlate with which crew they are part of.

    Daydream and corpse marker??

    You'd have to hire something like hounds at which point the teddy would be cheaper. Zoraida can create a somewhat workable Teddy-engine with her voodoo doll if that's your cup of tea. If you search for it you should find it. The morestandarf way is having a bunchof stuff die on either side early in the game.

    Daydream and corpse marker??

    They don't for exactly the reason you mentioned.
