  1. I am very much looking forward to the new edition. The biggest thing for me is the condition cull, I am so glad to see generic conditions replace the never ending torrent of model specific conditions that m2e quickly became. This turned me away from the game as I simply could not remember all of them and it made for a very gotcha centric, awful experience for me. I wasn't having fun, so I ended up taking a break from Malifaux shortly after book 5 dropped and that break quickly became the decision to stop playing the game until a new edition dropped. I ended up playing Infinity where abilities, conditions and weapons are universal across the game rather than model specific, and if Malifaux ends up remotely similar I will be very happy, as I find this makes for a much smoother, pleasant gaming experience. I wish more masters would have been culled, it's not too late Wyrd! (i'm not kidding, start with Lady J, she attacks helpless old men!)
  2. The biggest winner in the Gremlin part of the errata is Bushwhackers for me. At 6ss I considered them underwhelming as their "reckless" is conditional. But, at 5ss I think a Bushwhacker is a good deal. DF6, WP6, SH6, WD6 - these are still the stats of a 6ss model. 2/4/5 with their Rifles on a focused attack, ignoring cover. It will be nice to be able to use the other 50% of Mah's crew box without feeling like I'm shooting myself in the foot.
  3. I think I was lucky this time, not willing to risk a second.
  4. The ritual worked! Yes! Thanks for the extra info Nathan, the scenery looks great!
  5. Attempting to summon @Nathan Caroland - Oh Wyrdest one, please bless us with more information!
  6. As far as I know there are only foil cards for masters, emissaries and some of the alt models like Amelia Bathory, Rowan Nilson. They are included in the prize packs henchmen can get for tournaments. Last year everyone who made an order during black Friday received a random foil card with their order. Apart from that, I don't know any other way they have been distributed.
  7. I regularly take both in the same list, they are both fantastic utility models. The belle's discard trigger on the lure is rad and her ability to slow is incredibly underrated.
  8. Alt Kirai, lost love and Ikiryo. Male Kirai, female lost love and a male Ikiryo equivilents. They are in wedding attire, the bride has some sort of grisly injury like lost love. Alt Ikiryo is reaper-like. I feel like the whole Ikiryo/vengeful partner deal wouldn't be an uncommon occurrence in Malifaux.
  9. I tried him out with two rogue necros with Molly for turn 1 fresh meat shenanigans, after which he slowly wandered up the board to beat face with the shovel. Sure, it worked ok, but he wasn't terribly useful after doing the fresh meat trick. I lured/pushed him with a belle and a doxy to move him up the board, but WK 4 is painful on any model. Do I think he was worth 9ss in this scenario? Yes and no. Mortimer is default worth the price paid for fresh meat because nothing else can do it, but he didn't do anything particularly significant after turn 1 that a 9ss model would be expected to do. If Mortimer could also push when using fresh meat I would be pretty excited, I would use him as a front line brawler, he's got a load of wounds, regen and ML 7, he'd be great for picking off minions and his chatty aura would get more use.
  10. Before I switched to horror Molly I found Onryo + Goryo to be very useful. Summoning an Onryo is like summoning a bomb that gives out adversary and possibly slow, with the obligatory black blood. They're on of the easiest ways to give out adversary in a Molly crew. Goryo are decent because the 50mm base allows them to gain a lot of wounds on the initial summon. If you summon them out of engagement they can charge a target that has adversary, on the turn they are summoned. Goryo are good because they fill they are the only thing you can summon on an 11, so they are nice to have if you can't quite summon a Shikome.
  11. I just bought both Hamelin boxes a few weeks ago! Hey Wyrd, want to swap both cat boxes for a beautifully painted Hamelin crew? Let me know
  12. Chiaki is super good value, you can use her to clear slow off Kirai's summoned models. Ashigaru however, aren't really a consideration for Kirai overall, but will work in a pinch if you don't have anything else. Yan Lo has some synergy with spirits, fury of yomi to make nearby spirits take actions.
  13. Fascinating list, keen to try this one out some day.
