    Is anyone actually beating Kings Empire?

    I've played against KE twice and I'll admit they can be a massive headache, but I feel we can be competitive in a single commander game. Rifle core is always a headache for me, anything I can do to neuter them helps tremendously. They love to go after easy kills to get into glory quicker. Armor helps, as does our ability to have alot of card draw and additional attacks via engineer and prototypes. I had some luck with the railgunner assuming I can keep them alive.

    Titan Resculpts?

    It is very sad compared to the other allegiances

    Thank You, Mason

    @Mason Good luck! I'm a bit concerned myself. I love wyrd products and it's what finally got me into miniature games.

    Hamelin Tactica: Drown them in Rats

    Rules lawyer question - Someone reminded me of the voracious rat ability for hamelin. Stolen sac themselves for two rats, but if they die near him would there be a third rat from voracious rats? Seems like kill and sacrifice are different if I recall.

    Thoughts about M3E

    This makes me very sad. Also helpful since I can stop buying models for him I really should ask this in the gremlins forum but just in case you are still watching, does this mean mama Z is loosing her ability to hire WP <= 4 folks as well?

    Thoughts about M3E

    I'm torn on so many of these. Trying to stay optimistic until more facts roll in. Hamelin - I never thought I'd like this guy and now I find myself wishing I'd play him anytime I play something else. I have a bad feeling he's going to loose alot of his rat love in interest of balance. I'm against pass tokens at this point. I loved the concept of balancing more ap that did less versus less ap that did more. (Elite versus non-elite crews). Viks - I'd like them to be a bit less one trick pony, but you can't deny their style and I hope they keep it. VS - My original master. Wave 5 made me want to play him again. Daw - 2nd master. Love his curses, disliked how squishy he'd become. I like the idea of dual faction rezzers. I already used quite a few due to the tormented keyword. Parker - I always wanted him to be as cool as his theme. Maybe 3E will deliver. Zipp - My 2nd faction is gremlins and I'm just starting to play him. It's hard to tell what he'll be like in outcasts until we get a better feel for keyword stuff. Levi - If they take away his ability to hire undead/constructs, I think he'll loose alot of his unique flavor. MIsaki - Bleh I always prefered the Viks anyway. Tara - I actually think the rezzers should have taken her full time.

    Who are our best masters vs each faction?

    I can add some for and against Daw versus Gremlins - Reckless let's them work around his curses. Also not against Ten Thunders - their easy access to focus = dead daw. VS versus Rezzers/Blasters - I've had decent luck with. Levi - Not against arcanist. If you end up with Marcus and some of his alpha nonsense, levi = liability. Hamelin - As others mentioned, he really doesn't have a bad matchup as long as you have options in his crew.

    Call Me Slow: The Hannah Plague Saturation

    She isn't usually my first pick, but I can see the options there. The extra card is helpful to up your crow chances and the suit stripping is a wonderful if you can workout good positioning.

    Hamelin Tactica: Drown them in Rats

    I'm watching the folks on facebook discuss adjusting some of the stronger masters. One of which is adjusting Plague Pits. Is anyone else finding this upgrade earth shattering? It's really good for 1 stone, but against good players I find it rarely nets much blight. They use less important models to remove it turn 1 and unless the board has some nice choke points they use careful movement to avoid it. One of the proposals is to only allow one blight from it a turn? Or I'd ponder bumping it to two stones. Thoughts?

    Accidental Von Schill

    6 models would make me very nervous these days.

    Hannah, Ancient Tomes

    I've rarely used her with ancient tomes. It would be interesting to try it in a Parker crew where the additional stones and cards could help her.

    Hamelin at ITC

    I thought I'd find hamelin boring when I first started, but that hasn't been the case. To use the rats as activation control is easy. To manuever them where they are most effective is always a challenge to me. Particularly in GG18 where taking hamelin means giving up some points easily if you aren't careful with your engine. Never tried the nothing beast with hamelin yet. He seems to be gaining favor with quite a few masters these days.

    Parker's Weak Points

    Interesting. Never thought of using guilty outside of daw, but it does make some sense. Defensive guilty would be a nice tarpit.

    Hamelin at ITC

    I like A&D in Wagons but even that isn't set in stone these days. I've had opponents slow the rat engine down by sniper or blasts, but I figure the model/ap trade off is worth is usually worth it. The only time it's become an issue is when I lacked cards to summon two stolen. I tend to add a beater or two, and either midnight stalker or a few something else to run schemes. Benny frequently makes the cut, the other slot could be just about any of the outcast all stars depending on the other faction.
