    November LGS Promotion

    It's barely February yet (or not even, depending on your time zone). Give them time, we usually find out in the first week of the month.

    Zipp - rather good fun

    I've been throwing Airship on a scheme running Iron Skeeter -- it may sound odd, but it lets him drop a piano from around the corner of something to clear the way, then fly into position for the scheme he wants to run.

    How's your HH looking?

    I ran Francois (DC/HitM), Burt (DC), Rami, and a Bayou in a local HH tournament last weekend and cleaned house. Everyone was caught off-guard by the alpha strike potential of Frank and Rami, and the ability of Burt to keep steady damage going while those two were licking their self-inflicted wounds (not to mention his defensive trigger, which killed Bishop in the final) was massive. Also key was Frank's huge Stone pool, which kept him going at crucial times.

    Zipp - rather good fun

    I've had an odd amount of success using them to tie up key pieces in my opponent's crew. Charge them up into their faces and force them to either kill the piggies and have it blow up in their face (and not use AP on the rest of my crew!) or waste AP on trying to walk out of engagement, which for some reason has gone really well in terms of forcing lots of wasted AP.

    a stumped rafkin

    I've been playing with the idea of pairing him with a Guild Autopsy or two. They shoot the target full of poison, then Raf runs in and finishes the job with flair.

    How's your HH looking?

    Dirty Cheater is pretty much automatic on Frank for me.

    Gremlin Problems - Gremlins are bad or I'm Bad

    Malifaux can be a pretty brutal game for most new players, and it takes a LOT of repetition and trying things over and over again and in different ways to start seeing the patterns and combinations needed to succeed. I've found success with my (admittedly limited) pool of Gremlins with most schemes in one form or another, but there's not specific advice I can give. Gremlins lean very, very, very heavily on reading the board and reacting accordingly, more so than most factions in my experience. As to why you're having issues killing Peacekeepers... well, that's just a rough matchup. They will tend to slaughter Gremlins, but they'll slaughter many things. If you're facing more than one at a time in a single game, though, then your opponent is cheating, as to the best of my knowledge they're a Rare 1 model. Regardless of that, however, the best thing you can probably do is keep throwing cheap, expendable models at it to slow it down while you go about your business elsewhere. Piglets, Stuffed Piglets, Bayou Gremlins, that like. Yes, they'll die fast, but they'll keep the Peacekeeper from closing down on you as ably and keep their massive killing power at bay. Being able to essentially take an 11-stone model out of the game like that is a massive blow to your opponent, and since it's only defense 4 you can still whittle it down steadily even with Armor +2 and HtK.

    If you're having issues with wargamevault's shopping cart, you'll have to ask them. That's on their end. @yool1981

    If you could only purchase one addon...

    For Abyssinia, Electrocutioners. Though the Mechanized Infantry have me reaaaaaaaaal tempted.

    Custom Resin Bases for TOS?

    By the looks of the model bases and what Wyrd has said about how much thinner the Fireteam bases are getting, I'd imagine that they'd be pretty easy to magnetize to keep models secure but still make them easy to manage for removal/reinforcing.

    Not happy with the latest update (#20)

    It IS a happy thing in that it's to better support a product that, while you may not care for it, looks like it can help sustain and improve the long-term financial health of Wyrd and allow them to do more of the smaller side projects that you DO care for, including some of the ones that they pulled funding for.

    January 2017 Errata

    Critters still allows Tara to hire Guild Autopsies as an Outcast master, which is a helpful and thematic thing for her (unless I missed them picking up Void somewhere in the errata).

    Not at all, that damage prevention that replaced Darlings is very useful.

    The Other Side App

    War Room is GREAT for list building and card browsing, but when it comes to actually using it to play it's a miserable experience. I refuse to use it for that, actually, unless I absolutely have to -- which is why I'm REALLY not happy that PP is going to stop giving you cards when you buy their stuff. So yes, take the good from things like War Room, and leave the bad. It's doable -- we have examples of what works and what doesn't. Learn from and fix the mistakes, and we can get great apps for TOS and Malifaux.
