  1. The big zombie in the mindless zombie set could make a good Archie. Stick on a couple of extra arms from one of the other zombie, make a tentacle out of GS and you're golden.
  2. For someone who has been away from the game since before book 4, this was extremely interesting. It looks like Seamus is back big time!
  3. That sounds a bit Killbill'ish? Could be fun
  4. Reva on a tiny tiny horse would be good I'd prefer an alternate Rogue Necromancy though. In the stories its described as something McMourning has worked on a long time, with lots of tweaks and modifications so there could be several earlier versions lurking, unless of course Sebastian has cleaned them up.
  5. Mollys box doesnt have a lot to offer the other masters and to make her work you need at least Seamus' and either Nicodems (horrors) og Kirais boxes (spirits). And even then she'd like either Killjoy, Izamu or Rogue Necromancy as beaters, and the Hanged, the Drowned, the Students, Gaki and more for summons. From what I've read on the forums Crooligans arent all that popular. Most people seem to prefer Necropunks. Phillip and the Nanny are good, but a little expensive. Take Phillip and the Nanny with a Dead Doxy and you have a nice card generating machine, but its rather expensive for what it does. If you decide to pick her up on your next shopping spree, I'd pick up Kirai too and a bunch of spirits.
  6. It looks like a very solid shopping list. Seamus can get use out of a Hanged as well. You're also pretty well setup to run Molly now, if she strikes your fancy
  7. For Seamus I'd get Yin ASAP, she works as a beater and there's tons of synergy. If you go with McMourning I'd suggest picking up some Canine Remains along with the extra Flesh Construct. If you want the Emmissary, you'll need Mindless Zombies as well. This is a general thing with Ressers though (maybe with Malifaux in general?), with so many dependencies and synergies, its hard to pick up just one box...
  8. Mindless Zombies for Nicodem, an extra Flesh Construct and Guild Autopsies for McMourning, Rogue Necromancy for Seamus or Molly, Killjoy for Molly, University of Transmortis for Molly and Nicodem (mainly) or spirits for Molly (you could easily spend more than 60$).
  9. Shipping crates, barricades and scaffolding. Depending on what buildings you have, you could add wooden walkways from building to building.
  10. I'll second the "where's it moving to?" question
  11. 1. Johan is rarely a bad choice, but from there its all master specific. Molly likes Killjoy and McMourning might want Performers. Tara Yan Lo might want models from Outcasts and 10 Thunders, but I've never played them (or against them). 2. It depends greatly on which masters you're looking to play, which upgrades you want to give them and how you'll be playing them. Seamus might want more than 3 Belles (but it would be rare), McMourning could very likely use more than 4 Canine Remains (1 from his box, 3 from the minion box) and definitely 1-2 additional Flesh Constructs, Nicodem (especially with the Emissary) might want 2 boxes of Mindless Zombies. You cant buy seperate Seishin, there's 2 in Kirais' box and 3 in Datsue Ba's box, speaking of the spirit ladies, 2 boxes of Gaki might be usefull. A general piece of Malifaux purchasing advice: If a master box contains the minions your after, said masterbox is almost always a better buy than a seperate minion box. Some master boxes might even be worth buying even if you have the master, since you can sell the master, totem and henchmen online, as these arent sold seperately (this might not be true these days though, but there were a lot of gaps in 1st ed. players collections in the beginning of 2nd ed.). Unless you really focus on it (be carefull not to forget your strategy and schemes) you wont be summoning all that much, so as others have said above: start with one of each
  12. Why are you avoiding Molly? You can run Horror Molly decently with the model pool you have. She love Killjoy Sybelle, Belles, Doxies, Yin and with the Emissary, Mindless Zombies too. Other than Phillip you'll also be getting Crooligangs in her box
  13. Before Guild Autopsies were released Crooked Men were my go to for ranged poisoning in a McMourning Crew, but now I'm not sure if they're worth fielding.
  14. If you want to use Mortimer as a summoner and you're worried about corpse markers, you could switch out your Crooligans for Canine Remains, who can dig up corpses for you. I'd replace Bete Noir with a more durable and reliable beater or maybe going without a dedicated beater and instead concentrate on buffing your minions. This list has 7ss to spare: Mortimer +Spare Parts - 2ss Canine Remains - 4ss Canine Remains - 4ss Toshiro The Daimyo - 9ss They could be used for a Nurse, a Dead Doxy, Sebastian or a Rotten Belle from the "support category". They could also be used for either Rafkin or a Punk Zombie in the "beater" category.
  15. Since the first mate has an anchor, I'd definitely go for the "boat suspended under a balloon" look. In my opinion its a lot more charaterful and piratey than the more modern zeppelin look in your first pic And here's a 28mm scale piano: http://store.warlordgames.com/search?type=product&q=piano
  16. O scale/guage works well too and its easier to find and usually cheaper too. Its 1/48, so a little on the big side, but for tracks and cars it should be fine.
  17. Maybe you dont need the Sow to charge straight away? Since she's a glass cannon you want to pick your targets carefully, if your opponent can retaliate on her she wont last long. Charge late in the turn, on a flank with few enemy models around, with the movement shenanigans as Dogmantra suggested or simply out activate your opponent. Or maybe you dont need the Sow to charge at all? The mere threat of a Sow charge could dictate where your enemy moves his models. I think the Sow is easily worth 8SS if used wisely, but if you just charge her in to do some damage you're probably better off with Rooster Riders.
  18. As far as I can see, all of the RatJoy models have been released or do you need Winged Plagues too? 1. I think there are several reasons. A. In Malifaux lots of models represent unique characters, in GW games there are very few special characteers. B. The lack of modular kits doesnt help, very few Malifaux kits could be kitbashed without huge amounts of greenstuff. C. The lower model count, and the fact that Wyrd is good about releasing multiple sculpts for all minions (if there's a rare x, the minion box will generally contain x models), means that there's less need for conversion. Apart from a few summoners (Ramos, Somer, Ulix and McMourning maybe?) you'll rarely have to field identical sculpts. D. This is sort of related to A, but each models card has a picture of thats fairly accurate and conversions can get confusing in a tournament setting. E. Wyrd promotes and sponsors tournaments and community activities, in return for that support I think its fair if they prefer that people use their models. Conversion are still being made. I generally lump them into 3 categories: Minor adjustments like a headswap, a new weapon or similar. Models that havent been released yet, lots of people have proxies or conversions for models from Crossroads and Shifting Loyalties, some continue to use their proxy after the model has been released. Resculpts, a few people on the forums with crazy modeling skills redo complete crews, like the Day of the Dead Perdita crew here: http://themostexcellentandawesomeforumever-wyrd.com/topic/114463-dia-de-los-muertos-the-ortegas-co/?page=1
  19. I dont know much about Kirai, but The Drowned are both Undead and Spirits, Phillip and the Nanny too Phillip is great for games with scheme markers or when you need more cards for summoning. Pair him up with a Dead Doxy for a card generating factory - the Doxy drops a scheme marker, moves, Takes the lead on Phillip and then drops a second scheme marker. Phillip eats both scheme markers to draw 2 cards and discard one, for each marker. Phillip can also turn enemy scheme markers into corpse markers, if you give him Corpse Bloat you can blow them up too. Finally he can put up a Chatty aura preventing interacting.
  20. The Wyrd forums are "themostexcellentandawesomeforumever-wyrd" and the webstore is "giveusyourmoneypleasethankyou-wyrd", the Wiki needs an amusing name
  21. Taking care when removing bits from sprues, working on a white table in a room with wooden floors has so far meant that through the starter set, 4 master boxes and 10ish smaller boxes I've yet to lose a piece *knock on wood*. The Zombie Chihuahua, Bete Noires tiny piece of hair and the Dead Doxy with the detached head where the most troublesome assemblies.
  22. In addition to the fluff and rules for the first wave of M2e release the big rulebook also contains the (first wave of) generic upgrades for all seven factions. If you dont pick up the generic upgrade deck, I'd definitely go for the big rulebook (and Crossroads too).
  23. I dont like it. I dont think these models fit into the Malifaux aesthetics, its like they've taken the good things about Abuela and sort of overdone it. Ohh well, at least I have the option not to buy them
  24. This thread has some good info on the Emissary (post 5 mainly):
