  1. I am very excited to announce the 2018 dates for the Ultimate Team Showdown. The event will be at the Crowne Plaza in Newton, MA (just minutes from Boston and Logan Airport) on July 14th and 15th. We had 40 players last year and expect even more this time around. The venue has capacity for up to 20 teams (80 players). Ultimate Team Showdown (UTS) is a 5 round, 2 day, 4 person team event in Newton,MA. This event is designed to bring teams of players together in an environment that is both competitive and social for the Malifaux community. The team and matchup process is in place to add some different challenges to how we typically play games at tournaments and affects master and crew selections. To that end, we have included long round times (2.5 Hours) and we will be putting together a scoring mechanic that rewards team spirit and hobby efforts as well as crushing your opponents on the table. While teams will only be required to have a unique name, teams will be highly encouraged to have shirts, displays, costumes, props, etc. Some more details are on the facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1837003036597693/ Updated details will be coming in the next few months, but for an overview, here is last years rules packet: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1KS_M_GQGMScMWoELEioaGkMok_4-Wa20V1nH7RjDpyk/edit?usp=sharing

  5. We are pleased to announce a venue has been locked in for the 2017 Ultimate Team Showdown. Initial details are as follows: This will be a 2 day, 5 round, 4 person team event taking place at the Crowne Plaza in Newton. MA (15 minutes from Logan Airport and right off the Mass Pike) on July 15th and 16th 2017. Further details will be coming out in the months ahead, but get your team ready for a Showdown!
  6. While the schemes and strats haven't brought it to the table, I think 2 swine cursed + lucky emissary in A OOH GLOWY Wong list might have play. giving + to minions w/ in 4 makes your hand all about the other 25 SS you took and getting those pig rams. Also trixie can push/pull the lot and quantity of cards flipped with the swine 0 is likely to get the emissary up the field and waste 0 AP on moving. Haven't had the chance to play it, but i am always happy for + flips in gremlins and saving my hand. also regenning, min 4 dmg emissary with Ml 6 and 3 in range is nice.
  7. Very true, it is a liability anytime 3 models have to be in B2B. But with fly 12, the smoke blocking LOS if used with terrain and the ability for Earl and passager to head out after being moved, the time for the opponent to take advantage is limited and your placement is flexible.
  8. Don't forget, Earl moves with ANY friendly sky pirate walk. An Iron Skeeter playing taxi can move him as well (giving you 2 fly 6 inch places on 2 models for maybe 1 card). Leaving Zipp to do his thing solo. Sure you don't get the suit stuff for Zipp, but that is always very hard timing wise and you might get the tome for the Iron and have it guarantee fast on its passenger.
  9. Played a few games with him and I agree is is a blast to play with lots of things that he can do in most situations. With Sparks, a stuffed opens up a ton of options including same setup but noxious smoke so the stuffed is just 2 away and Zipp is blocked off then shooting/melee stuffed with Zipp and then get the blasts to hit things that the -2 walk and no charge or 0's. So if they live they aren't doing much... Also avoids pesky high defenses and most DF triggers and does a great job of neutering a lot of models. I love using the smoke to be placed to pen in a rng 1 Ml model pretty well and still be in Zipps engage of 2. also another fun fact is he can take the drop attack as a disengaging strike against high DF models.
  10. RL stuff came up. Very unlikely to make it. Bad news for me, good news for any BRTT attendees as no practice game makes a jack a dullboy.
  11. One of my favorite Somer moments was playing against dreamer. Dreamer summoned 3 stitched together and wasn't able to heal them. Moved them up together to hold me at bay. A push of Somer with a squeal from a bayou gremlin shot and Somer engaged all 3. A do it like dis crow and 3 attacks later I had Somer and 3 Piglets coming right back at him. So many people forget about that trigger and it is great.
  12. I am planning on going as well.
  13. Slight side note and this might be common knowledge but am I reading Encouragement right that if you take a charge action you get + to both attack duels? As the attacks are resulting from the charge (2) action which was encouraged? If so makes RR encouragement pretty great if you can position things right with ++ to attack and + to dmg on ML 6...
  14. I played one recently with all pigs that was great: Old Major, Gracie, Sow and a stuffed pig... Lots of fun and pretty strong with nudging heal triggers

    card draw

    I have done this with some success: So'mer summons with a card, then starting BG reckless, focus, focus(or just 1 focus if it is the summoned) shoot. likely kill themselves if you can get a ram in there, then so'mer draws 2 cards, sammy lets you draw a 3rd and discard 1. So cost of 1 master AP, 1 card you get 2/3 cards back and a dumb luck shot. Fun when it works with biggest hat too.
