  1. the way the tags work, is a filter. So, currently. if you go to the M3E store, and select "browse by tags", it filters out anything that DOESN'T have that tag. currently the tags that exist are all of the factions, "limited"(for limited edition stuff I assume, haven't checked it), and a few months. currently i believe the dates are nov 2019, dec 2019, and jan 2020, which i assume is filtering to the models that were released those months. What I'm proposing is adding the keywords to that list of filters/tags. Even just the major ones. I'm fine if it excludes things like beasts or human since those are rarely used. But it'd be nice to be able to select the faction you play, select the keyword you're trying to find stuff for, and just filter everything else out.
  2. seems pretty obvious to me. webstore>ME3>browse by tag. What I find interesting about the current tags is that, for the M3E page anyway, you *can* separate them all by faction which doesn't count as a tag. and then the vast majority of the tags currently are faction. Which is nice for finding duel-faction masters, I suppose? Since, for example, if you click on the neverborn faction symbol and use the guild tag, lucius and the crossroad seven are the only two products that come up.
  3. You could. Still just seems easier to have it as a filter IMO.
  4. Not super sure if this is the right subforum to put this, honestly. But, basically what the title says. I feel like a "sort by keyword" option would be incredibly useful. While I know that the keywords are pretty well known, and if not there are things like the app and the "big book of keywords", it's still a little annoying having to cross reference another page, or app on your phone. I think this would add a bit of useful functionality and make it that much easier to find what you're looking for on the webstore.
  5. Hey Ya'll. So, I've been away from 'faux for awhile, and looking into the new stuff, i've noticed something strange going on with Nekima. She's been upgraded to a master, which means she'll be getting a crew box. While we don't know the contents of that box yet, we know a few things and can make some educated guesses; namely her totem is the Blood Hunter, and Hayreddin is her only in-keyword henchman, so its likely he'll be the packaged henchman for her. and likely her box will include something like terror tots, and maybe some nephilim. But, here are the weird things I've noticed. Her master page and M3E card on the app both use her Alternate model, leading me personally to believe that they're going to make that from the Alt. Sculpt to her regular sculpt and maybe M2E nekima will become "vintage" nekima. despite this, she's had a solo M3E box released of her alternate sculpt. this alternate sculpt is also not available during the easter sell. - this is slightly mitigated by the fact that alt. hungering darkness also isn't available, so maybe they're only doing M2E alternates/special editions? Hayreddin has just been announced as being a sold packaged in with black blood shaman. I'm just curious as to what's going on. Is she getting a new sculpt for M3E? if so, why use her Alternative art for the card and her master page? Maybe thats just the closest representation to current Nekima we have? - who is her henchman? if its not hayreddin, As far as I'm aware every master who's been getting updated boxes have either already been announced/released, or they're just getting new sculpts rather than entirely new box contents.
  6. its because you can hire other masters into your crew. So, say you're running titania+totem. you can spend some of that 50SS pool to hiring, say, euripides into titania's crew.
  7. Slight side note; wyrd, if Titania is getting a new sculpt for M3E, can we please give her a stronger glue point? Same with molly? Those girls do not like to stay to their bases.
  8. Don't get me wrong. I'm super happy with like, 99.9998% of the changes that they've announced so far. it's just that the few changes I don't like, depending on how they handle them. Will be deal breakers for me. I'm sure Wyrd already has a great plan in store, and I'm sure they'll be fine. But it's better to voice that you don't like something and explain why you don't like it then sit in silence hoping they don't (in my opinion) mess it up, because that might give a false perspective of how many people dislike these changes. I'm not going to take my models and burn them or anything, but I am cautiously pessimistic about these changes.
  9. Yes. the scale is different but the principle is very much the same. and a lot of people I see aren't just angry because they're losing their favorite master or their faction is losing more than anyone else or something like that - although I do see that. It's just a lot of people disagree on principle with the idea of removing choices from players, or invalidating models that they already own.
  10. I wouldn't even say it's Hard. At least not for me; White used to be very hard for me but i've gotten a lot better at it. it's just that it's very minute details. I usually don't bother edge highlighting unless I have to. But, since their armor is pure black, the only really way to add depth(which, usually i get from shading), is to edge highlight every, little detail.
  11. I don't think it's purely an emotional response, though. I'm against invalidating player choice and player purchases merely on principle. Yeah, I don't like losing lilith. But even if we kept lilith I'd still be against it.
  12. Which is what I did the first time. I've been nothing but perfectly civil to start with. But if I ask someone politely to not use such poor arguments against me, and not to put words in my mouth and their response is essentially "Oh, I'M SORRY, Here I thought you were a logical person. my mistake for assuming you had sense". I'm not going to remain civil.
  13. I don't know, for me its this weird thing where I'd probably get more use out of them if they were legal proxies. I'm not yet, but I do have the intention of going competitive. I may never do it, I may do it starting in 3E, I may do it tomorrow, who knows. But, doing so, I feel like learning DMH masters is almost a waste of my time. I assume we won't be using them at the higher end tournaments, so...Why would I spend my time learning Lilith, getting used to having her on my bench, knowing the ins and outs of how she plays, only to lose access to that playstyle in those higher end tournaments? that's just games I could've spent getting better at one of the other masters. Titania and Nekima, respectively, seem to be analogous to her various playstyles but there's a lot of nuance there that means I doubt they'd play the same. and, Wyrd, for what it's worth, I really, really hope Titania plays very close, if not identical, to what a terrain lilith build is like; thats my favorite playstyle. That said, there is still a lot I like about this edition. streamlining is almost always a good thing in my experience; while games CAN be over simplified...they can also be overly complicated to. and its not like Malifaux is at risk of being overly simplistic just because a few abilities are being combined together into something more generic, but functionally the same. A lot of the new masters sound super fun as well. I'm really happy about Resser getting jack and von shtook. Euripides sounds really, really fun to play. I'm optimistic that the changes to burning and the new edition will give Kaeris some breathing room so that she'll actually be....good.
  14. Yeah, thats the silver lining i've been telling myself to keep me from throwing a fit and snapping all my models in half(joking, of course.), I have improved a lot from my first RG to the last ones I just did. and that is another thing I like, not just about painting, but about life in general. watching yourself get better, figuring out new techniques and things that work for you. It's fun, and fulfilling, watching your own personal growth and skills get better, even if it is just a hobby.
  15. For me, it depends on the model Some models are just a pain to paint. Others, are a fun challenge. others, are just enjoyable. Personally, the fun I have the most, as far as hobbying goes. is planning, and finishing. I like being able to plan out what I'm going to do with my models, how I'm going to theme them and things like that. and then seeing it all come to fruition, and the satisfaction from seeing everything come to together. the actual painting..well, depends on the model. right now I'm working on some 40K stuff before jumping back into finishing my Malifaux models up, and then going to touch up almost every malifaux model I own. and, I am not having a lot of fun with these models for reasons that are entirely my own fault. Kids, take it from me. Do NOT paint raven guard unless you really, really like edge highlighting.
