    Undying 10T models.

    Well, the models' stat cards are in the Bad Things Happen app, which I think makes them de facto legal for tournament play.

    Super buggy since update...

    Yep! Definitely broken on iOS. Can't add anything beyond a Master and Totem to a new or existing crew. Also, Katashiro are in the model list but don't show on Asami's summoning card.

    Undying 10T models.

    Well, Rite of Strength would need it to have an Upgrade, but you're right, there are still plenty of pushes available. A Ml 7 2/4/5 attack may not be worth spending ALL your pushes on, but I feel like they'll definitely get some work done. Competing with the excellent Yokai as Asami's 5ss summon is tough, but there are definitely cases where I'd prefer these (and vice versa).

    Undying 10T models.

    Asami with Borrowed Time can give the Katashiro some extra lifespan, and the fact that they attack immediately when they are summoned (in addition to every time they are pushed or placed) seems like they give a lot of value even if they only live for one 1 AP turn. For Minako, I'm really struck by her A Matter of Honor ability: "Enemy models may not move or push out of this model's engagement range." Period, end of ability. Unless the enemy has access to Place abilities - which are pretty rare - this makes her an unavoidable tarpit for keeping the enemy where you want them. The enemy can still push Minako herself, of course - or kill her - but it will limit a lot of the usual "get out of jail free" abilities that models use to disengage. Have a Charm Warder near her for Df and Wp buffs, and she is going to really ruin someone's mobility.

    Monday Preview - Mystery Monkey Mischief

    Groovy! From the looks of it, he might be some kind of Yokai on steroids...or maybe just a new buddy for Marcus. Either way, looks awesome!

    Very new.

    The Bad Things Hapoen app does include errata for cards, almost immediately after the errata are released. Updated physical cards are also available through print on demand at http://www.wargamevault.com/m/browser/publisher/5162 @bindi pretty much has it right; you *can* play the game with only the app and no cards, but having the physical cards is usually better for many reasons.

    Sad to hear about the delays, but thanks for keeping us updated!

    Agreed on all counts! Great location, cleanly organized and run, and packed with friendly, fun, welcoming players. I'll be back next year if I can manage it!

    March 2018 FAQ

    Ah, good catch - that’s what I get for posting while jet-lagged. I withdraw the question.

    March 2018 FAQ

    Re: number 89: "If the model only counts when determining VP, such as Big Jake, it works slightly differently." Um...how does it work differently exactly? Nothing in the rest of the description seems to indicate that any of the Strategy rulings are different for Big Jake as opposed to (e.g.) a Tanuki.

    Asami Wave 5: what to buy?

    In addition to the above suggestions, you may want an extra box of Yokai - they are her "bread and butter" summon, and you will occasionally want the ability to have more than three in play at once.

    Very new.

    Yes, rules are definitely advised. Get them free here. You may also want the phone app (Bad Things Happen, on iOS or Android). It has a crew builder, strategy/scheme reference, rules quick reference, summoner cards, FAQ/errata, etc. All that’s free, but for a one-time $10 charge, you also get permanent access to all present and future model stat cards within the app. It’s a great reference, though it might be information overload as you’re just getting started. Feel free to post here when questions come up; we’re a pretty friendly group.

    Very new.

    Welcome to Malifaux! The Burning combination @Hargus56 suggests is definitely where I'd start with what you have. His note about Mei not having a (0) action is also a good point; I often take the On Wings of Wind upgrade with her to provide extra mobility, especially with Sensei Yu in the mix. You can find that in the Wave 2 Ten Thunders Arsenal box. Mobility is a bit of a weakness in the Mei Feng crew (except for Mei herself), so Sensei Yu is a big help there. Kang, for instance, is a pretty good beater, especially against Resurrectionists, but he takes forever to get to the fight without a little help. You've certainly got enough there to get yourself rolling, so I'd say play a few games with that setup and see what you like. I have a bunch of suggestions below, but it's usually a good idea to learn a small number of models really well before expanding too much. I did the opposite, and was a lot slower to learn my models well as a result. If and when you want to add more, by first recommendation would be the Shadow Emissary. It's a bigger investment, but is a really useful addition to any 10T crew and will definitely be worthwhile. In additional to giving any crew a lot of mobility, he's good at generating scrap markers for Mei to use, and he can provide some good card draw for Shenlong. Plus he's a big cool-looking model. One popular combination with Mei is Toshiro the Daimyo (who is sold by himself) and a box of Komainu (which he can summon with scrap markers). Komainu are useful cheap constructs for Mei, and the ability to turn scrap markers into mobile activations that she can still Railwalk to is good. Toshiro can also summon Ashigaru, which are available in the Yan Lo box (Masters of the Path) or by themselves, but those are less immediately relevant to Mei. Other ways to generate more scrap for Mei and/or Toshiro include the Mechanized Porkchop (a Greminlins model, but Mei Feng can bring it because of the Foundry keyword) and Obsidian Oni. For Shenlong, you might want to look at some Katanaka Snipers. They are great long-range shooters by themselves, but his ability to let them Focus as a (0) action is a big boost to their damage output.
