  1. As previously stated, you can’t select strategy markers with Maddening Drums.... but Gluttony is an absolute rock star (no pun intended) and is arguably the best of the Crossroads 7 members. He is incredibly powerful and flexible. You should *absolutely* have him if you are serious about playing Bayou. He can be absolutely crippling for some opposing crews that utilize any type markers such as pyres, ice pillars shadow markers, underbrush, corpses, scrap..... the list goes on. Try him out, you won’t be disappointed.

  3. Hey folks! I'm scheduling demo sessions out of The Armoury Wargames and Hobbies, 67 Huttleston Ave in Fairhaven, MA! I'm available most evenings and weekends with a bit of notice. PM me if you'd like to set up a time to learn some Faux!
  4. https://www.facebook.com/events/807666579680547/?event_time_id=807666586347213 Hey fellow Wyrdos! The Armour is hosting a new 3E Malifaux league! For this one we will be starting at full 50ss games with no hiring restrictions. That's right, Dead Mans Hand and multi-master are both allowed! Have you been itching to try out a new faction? Go right ahead, factions are not locked for the league! Lets flex our gaming muscles in prep for Captain Con! There will be a weekly cap of 1 game. Oh, you have more time and would like to get extra games in? Great! You can also record up to 1 bonus game per week. Bonus points will be tallied separately. You may only record 2 league games and 2 bonus games with the same person over the entire course of the league. Entry: $15 Format: Weekly league Prizes: Most league points Most bonus league points Best differential A player may only receive 1 of the above prizes Best painted single model Best painted crew A player may only receive 1 of the above prizes. Per Gaining Grounds Season 0 painting competition criteria: No models that were part of a painting competition victory are eligible to win another painting competition put on by the same TO in the same year. Players are encouraged to keep painting more models to add to their collection and submit new pieces for subsequent painting competitions. If a player would win a second prize in a given category it will instead be awarded to the next eligible player. Painting entries will be judged on the last night of the league, 2/5/20. You do not need to be present for your models to be judged, feel free to leave them at the shop any time leading up to that night. Double points on Malifaux purchases for playing in the league! Prizes based on participation Play a game and get a league pt. Win a game and get an additional league pt for a total of 2 for that match. Players can make up missed games (up to 2 missed games can be made up). We will meet Tuesdays at 6pm but you can play games in store any day of the week.
  5. Fingers is probably the best way to hand out poison in the crew, don’t overlook him! His Toast tactical action hands out poison 1 to all models within a 6” pulse with NO resist. That’s a really, really big deal! Pair that with his have a drink to hand out 2 poison and potentially obey the model targeted with a built in suit... pretty nice. Additionally he puts a LOT of hand pressure on your opponent between chatty, beer goggles and the mental trauma trigger on his One More Thing attack. Pair him up with Popcorn and Whisky Golem and you’ve got 3 models with beer goggles in your opponents face forcing discards to attack them without a -flip, forcing discards to interact with chatty, slowing everything with brewmasters poison aura and keeping them at 2” engage ranges AND threatening nasty damage with mental trauma, whisky golem and brewmaster... sounds pretty good to me.
  6. One thing I noticed while looking through her keyword is the abundance of 2" melee range. On a severe terrain dense map it seems she could really shine with Juju, Grootslang, Wisps and Waldgeists. I haven't played her yet, only theorycrafted. I know that my opponents get really frustrated by all the 2" engage ranges in Brewmaster.

  15. With various pre-releases and the Gencon sale looming on the horizon I'd love to hear people's experiences with the various new releases. I have not used any of them aside from the Emissary, who I have only used with Mah Tucket. I will most likely be purchasing all of the new releases for completion's sake, but I'm struggling to figure out how to use most of the new models effectively. Specifically, when to use them INSTEAD of other, existing models. I can see using Sparks with a Pigapult (there's some obvious synergy there) but don't know that giving it fast is worth the 7 stones since he doesn't do whole lot else, especially since he'd have to hang back near it and wouldn't reliably be able to use his other abilities for a good portion of the game. Survivors... well, I just can't see a reason to use them over other options. Porkchops seem like a good way to get an extra 50mm pig into a Ulix crew to summon off of, but other than that I don't see a lot of use for them. With only 6 wounds even having armor +1 and Df 6 means they are pretty easy to take down. I can see taking one with Sparks to get the most use out of his abilities and playing aggressively with them, but that's 14 stones.... I like the Emissary and have made him a staple of my Mah Tucket lists as they work incredibly well together.... but I only her to the table rarely. I can see using him with Som'er, but my primary master is Ophelia and I can't imagine taking the Emissary with her. I haven't thought much about him with our other masters. I do own Mei Feng and intend to hire Porkchops and Sparks into her crew as there is some obvious synergy there. I'm not sure if the NDA for wave 4 pretesters is still in effect, but I'd really appreciate anyone's experience running Zipp and crew. They look amazing!
