    Nightmares and Teddy Bears - The Dreamer Tactica

    I have just picked up the dreamer box and I wish to get my head around him. What’s the simplest way to play a crew lead by him? What models does he need?
  2. So who do you think can tank the best in the current state of the game? What tech is needed with them?
  3. I have a mate who exclusively plays neverborn. I have been using my ressers against him but now i want to use my Gremlins. Which Grem master struggles against NB and who is good? Generically and master specific discussion welcome. he literally plays every single NB master no anyone could turn up.

    Nicodem - Post Nerf

    That’s the way I run Nicodem. Undead crowning means undead in his bubble gets positive flips to ca, df, ml and wound flips. summoning is just a bonus for me and I bring elements I need to runs the strats and schemes. Not optimal but I enjoy it. Usually I bring a beater, Phillip and the nanny and some belles and necropunks. I still take undertaker mainly for patchwork but the card draw is now a bonus rather than the main reason to take it. Izamu still works well as a the beater and I find myself summoning punk zombies mainly.
  5. So we all see that masters are built to play a certain way which becomes the accepted norm across metas. Have you come up with alt ways t play certain masters that is if not as competitive as the accepted at least competitive. Mine is Nicodem. I have played him for the past few years not primarily as a summoner but as a buffer who can summon as well. I take the one with undead crowning and give all att and cast actions in his bubble postiive flips. I take belles to lure a model per turn over to me and then hit it with a big hitter like RN or Izamu. I also take Bete to be a nuisance. I dont bother with Mortimer or getting a summoning engine on line as usually im more concerned with getting the kill off first. It works well. I take a mix of necropunks and belles depending on the schemes and strats. As a result the Nico nerf hasnt effected me too much, for sure its a pain but when i bring a crew to do the job I can concentrate on getting quality summons in where needed. Anyone else have ways of playing masters out of the normal?

    Alternative ways to play masters?

    @Boomstick tell me more, I like the sound of that!
  8. I am very keen for 3e and I still am loving 2e but is it worth learning a new master now? Should i just concentrate on the masters i know and play now to see 2e out?

    Pandora Tactica

Whats the latest take on the must haves for brawler Pandora? if possible i want to take Kade and a Teddy just because, i want not lose every game but am happy to not be optimised and go with theme instead. Pandy, Kade, Teddy, Poltergoost, 3 sorrows, iggy, what else?

    Third Edition is Coming!!

    Malifaux child is so boring. Too efficient and appears everywhere
  16. As if the cache ever balanced them anyway. Competitive players will make their choices on number crunching and others will still choose the masters they enjoy playing, subpar or not.

    Whiskey golem with Mah?

    As an alt beater is the golem ok with mah? I’m trying to avoid the usual Francois/ Burt thing (I know they are a thing for good reason)

    Ressers Keywords M3E

    Well Von Schtook is supposedly a necromancer as well as academic so he is going to need keyword to raise! Molly will get all the content of her box and i can see the the other horrors as well, it says she is leaving summoning behind and becoming a control master so she is going to need a good sized pool to hire. Seamus is obviously going to get Belles of all types in his pool. Reva i think will get maybe draugr and her box stuff. Kirai spirits Mcmourning will get his box set stuff plus probably any other abomination style like kentauroi etc Question is what kind of keyword will the various henchmen like Asura and Mortimer get?

    Nicodem Players - Dealing with the nerf

    I’m still excited to play but it takes the gloss off is all.

    Nicodem Players - Dealing with the nerf

    Yeah I find it disappointing. Nico and Ramos are my favourite masters.

    Nicodemus M3E?

    This just sucks. He is my main master and the reason I got in Malifaux. I played him before he became the flavour of the month and have been playing him since the cuddle. If the reason is they plan to release a new version of Nico as a liche lord seeing as he is now dead then I can accept that 😁
