    What To Do While Waiting for ME3?

    And you didn’t start with Sonnia why? 😂 I have doubled down on purchasing in-theme, and a model had to be VERY beautiful to be purchased otherwise. The domadores are lovely enough that I don’t care if they end up attached to a crew I dislike. (And the hat with candles attached was a unified piece, take that, doubters! the kit was unbelievably at the intersection of gorgeous sculpts and reasonable assembly)

    ...that would be a rather different ikiryo sculpt. 😘

    New Art for Malifaux - Your opinion

    Hamelin?! I missed Hamelin. Where’s that? Did you mean Hoffman? The M2E art was equally interesting whether human or construct or monster. The M3e/book five M2E art has better monsters than (some) humans (I love the male queller and every steamfitter in particular) (and Marlena but that goes without saying) and most of the previews have been humans. Master Dashel/Von Schtook/Basse/Youko have been constrained by design. Notice that they are all in poses already existing in Malifaux minis. Proxy time until we get the new boxes! (Same thing happened during the M2E changeover.)

    *sighs* *fetches the bolt cutters, snips, places wedding ring in the overflowing scrap bin* This happens so much it’s been added to the stompybot loan-out checklist. Refill the soulstone, check oil levels, buff out any scratches, remove any jewelry...

    Ehh...’bad unless boosted’ is not a great place for a model to be *looks at the El Mayor tax on Guild master defenses*. I hope they don’t average 6 attack, 6-positive is brutal (ok yeah a beater or two is five but I don’t want spammed 6-positive across everyone*), and really hope I never find a 7 attack in-theme. I don’t grasp hand reveal and control well so someone else can enjoy that. *to my opponent tonight, yes, I am a massive hypocrite. Nom nom nom!

    Themey lists with off theme Masters

    @4thstringer has done glorious evil with a hand-delivered Papa Loco too (against Kirai, as I recall). I haven’t tried ‘An Over-Literal Interpretation of the Requested Construct Functionality’ as I don’t have a Papa Loco available. Does it count as going off-theme if you cram a Hoffman list full of Arcanist stompybots? I have an itch to try Ml7 swarms again and see if I’m any better at positioning than I was back then the last time I tried it.

    Changling Changling Double Double Question Question

    Then where is the front-of-card ability which lets the trap itself use its own attack in that manner? That’s the hurdle I cannot pass. Is it simply illegal RAW no matter that a caveat is written into the attack?

    I do still need to try ‘Sonnia w/o Sonnia’ yes. Handler & Ryle can help the world burn. Remembered now: I was having problems with Ca attackers and wanted a positive damage flip buff on the handler so she could swan out in front with her half-built-in defensive trigger on straight flips. If that’s legal.

    What I hope 3rd Ed WON'T be.

    *pictures a watcher flapping desperately while trying to soar over an obstacle* Can I hope someone makes a pronunciation guide this time? Even an unofficial guide. I really liked that the book which introduced Kirai had those.

    Changling Changling Double Double Question Question

    I got a ‘no’ when I tried to argue that the emissary had pounce if a trap was buried, but I wasn’t confident in the reasoning behind that, which left matters unresolved such that the trap didn’t get pounce from its own attack either.

    Themey lists with off theme Masters

    Has anyone made a cyborg witch hunter list? I had the idea rattling around in my head to put the handler into my next Hoffman list, and I can’t remember why (pretty sure it wasn’t the aura of burning, I already tried that and Nellie was better for it with her defenses of pushes and skipped activations). But what did pop into my head was the threat range of a nimble, double-handler stalker (wait, do thralls get the move bonus too? I think they don’t) (Note to self: really GOT to find the guy I loaned my books to and get them back ) guided missile.

    What's the appeal to the Guild?

    ...cool theme music? 😇

    The Viks

    I hate that guy so much! I spend soulstone user activations focusing and stoning for a positive flip to try and remove him before he full heals and places!

    What's the appeal to the Guild?

    Emeline uses people as consciously as Lucius does, there’s quite a body count for the peripherals she mentions in passing with a sigh of ‘him, or me’—there was good reason she was promoted to Elite Division. Where’s the difference between her and Guild, then? (While I will admit Hoffman uses people just as much and it’s just as awful, he seems to be unconscious of overstepping the lines until someone ((Anna)) ((that thieving bitch)) rubs his nose in it. Self-absorbed is one thing, callous is another.) Some of us shoot first and ask questions later. Some of us ask questions until the questioned spits out the answer we want. Some of us made up the questions, and then answered them ourselves, for efficiency’s sake. Some of us want our overwhelming power constrained by rule of law and rule of projectile attack. Some of us like tweaking the Ressers’ noses by running one of their flagship masters as Guild, although after Broken Promises that got rather less satisfying. (Let me point out that they started it—the Dead Justice box set predated M2E.) The only category which puzzles me thematically is Guild McCabe players. Yes, our early mounted models sucked, but horses and hounds were only briefly popular before Nellie burst onto the scene. Where did the rough riders go?

    ^^And some of us are Guild because tongue-in-cheek propaganda posts like that are fun. You just can’t get subversive like that with most other factions (you can argue that Gremlins are subversive just by existing but that isn’t grown within the faction).
