  1. Played against brewmaster last night into recover evidence. The schemes were vendetta, claim jump, catch nd release, leave your mark and runic binding. I took claim jump on Marlene and leave your mark. Not the smartest choice against brew master. I took Levi with SDP, 2 waifs, Alyce, Marlene, Ashes and dust, necropunk, scavenger and prospector. His crew was brewie, fingers, Wesley, cooper, whisky golem and 3 shinobi First activation of the game Levi deleted the golem and I thought this is going to be easy. Anything but! Brew master is so frustrating to play. With their 2 inch engagement and squeal they just kited around making me waste ap. Levi in melee with stat 5 just isn’t able to get a hold of stuff, and I learned he is better kiting and stoning for a mask with his gun to turn of triggers. Still stealth is a pain! I managed to get both my starts first points but the second on leave was too hard once Brewie got into the centre with his pissheads. I managed to heal up Marlene with the scavenger and her own heal which got me the final claim jump. I lost ashes early in the game and the thingy was killed too but dust storm was good and got me a strat point. I ended up winning the game 6-5 as Brewmaster got 3 in the last turn, my early points came in handy. Looking back I would keep Leveticus away and shoot. Same with Alyce who ended up in the Brewie bubble and died by turn 3 or 4. The prospector was really good and so is the scavenger. I think the three minions are a good combo. Marlene does some work as well. If I learn to play Ashes better I’m sure he too will be better in future games.
  2. Thanks for the reply! I held off activating the scavengers for that exact reason but never got the crow! You could be right about the necro punk but I’m a cautious old man and feel safer with redundancy. As it was one of the punks got murdered first turn by McCabe. I’ll keep around with the list though and thanks for the advice!
  3. Greetings I thought I might share my experience as a first time outcasts player as I collect, paint and play the faction for the time. I have been playing malifaux for about 4 years now and I started a resser player and specifically Nicodem before he was god tier. It was a steep learning experience I can assure you but I enjoyed it and eventually I bought all the resser masters and played them all including Tara. Molly and Nico were my faves. Being the middle aged obsessed war gamer I was able to live the dream of my younger self and pretty much buy what I wanted when I wanted. So I built up a collection of every faction and own most of the masters and a good 90% of the models in each faction!. 3rd edition came along and I started with beloved ressers but was a little down on the since they dmh-Ed my Nicodem and my other fave Ramos (I had a arcanist period ). Soon I was trying out the ten thunders and enjoyed them for a while but I had always wanted play Levi but a few mates that are my regular opponents are big outcasts players so I steered away. Well those two mates are playing different factions for now so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try the outcasts. I have all of the masters in my cupboard of shame but Hamelin is just the first Ed metal box so most of his keyword is missing. The masters I have assembled are Viks. Schill, Daw, Parker and Levi while Zipp, Tara ( sold my original crew off when she was lost to ressers) and Hamelin are in built. My Daw crew is painted as well as most of my Levi but it was the weird old man I started with as he seemed to fit my theme of Nico and Ramos and indeed almost appears to be an Amalgam (see what I do there ?) of the two of them. I’ll post up some photos of the crews later. My thoughts coming into Levi are that I think his is a crew that could comfortable solo in a tournament which what I like when learning a new faction and crew. The plan is to take Levi to a tournament in the first weekend of October here in Sydney called Moab. It’s a one day tournament with three games. With this in mind I played a game against my mates McCabe last night of the first rounds pool. It was I chose break through and spread them out My list The idea was for ashes and the necrosis to move onto the opponents half first turn and drop markers to set up for turn two spread. This is why I gave ashes servant upgrade but I might change that yet. Rusty and Marlene were to hang together in the middle and project threat. The scavenger was really there to try to get fast onto alyce. With armour and Marlenes ability to tale the wounds down to 0 I could get the fast on Alyce with no wounds from the crow trigger on weird device. Of course first turn I couldn’t get a crow high enough to actually get it to work! I put the lodestone on ashes. second turn the plan was to get ashes up to the marker in the left hand quarter of the opponents half and claim strat point. Also he dropped a scheme marker to start getting me ready for the final points of my schemes. Necropunks were to get into backfield for breakthrough. One necro was killed by McCabe but the other one got over there and get me breakthrough. End of second turn and I had 3 points. The rest of the game went to plan and I easily got my markers down for my second points but Ashes could only get another 2 on the strat. It will be hard to get the final point for the start as that’s the furthest you need to move to claim one, passing it off will be the way but I hadn’t set it up well enough. Ended up 7 all draw. I’m hooked, love this crew. The irreducible damage from Levi is truly terrifying, I killed desper Leroux early turn 2 and Levi got Minako and I think the terracotta warrior by the end I lost alyce and Marlene but they did their job distracting McCabe, not for long enough though. Having said that if they hadn’t stopped him for a turn or so he would have got all the points for strat. Long winded I know but hey I’m excited!
  4. Played corrupted leylines vs McCabe last night with Leveticus. my crew was Levi with SDP, 2 waifs, Alyce, Ashes and dust with SDP, scavenger, 2 necro punks and Marlene Ended up a 7 all draw. Was my first game as an outcast and I loved Levi. With more experience I think I do better. Where I was out was in some positioning and knowing who to activate etc. Ashes got me 3 strat points as well as helping the necropunks gets all my points for breakthrough and spread them out. I can’t wait to play some more Levi!
  5. Love Asami, all that summoning and scary Japanese demons. Love it
  6. I find the archer quite good. That irreducible blast damage is nothing to sneeze at especially if he is fast and pumping out 3 shots.
  7. What is the interaction between minako and ototo?
  8. Papa legba or baron samedi themed Zoraida nightmare crew. Or else the same thing as a new Nico style master of zombies.
  9. Has the kitty model been released? I thought no proxies were allowed ?
  10. Im playing Sonnia into two games on thursday. My first M3E games with guld so ill probably stick with a similar list regardless of foe or schemes and strats. Thinking this Sonnia, Flame. Handler, 2 Thralls, 2 stalkers and death marshall recruiter just because i want to
  11. Cheers people. Ok so maybe I’ll put Basse ahead of Perdita in my painting queue.
  12. How does home on the range stack? “ when deploying, every friendly model with this ability can deploy +1 beyond this crews deployment zone. “ So If they have the ability they get to Deploy 1inch up? I’m confused.
  13. Its surprising also how statistically yes i shold be able to get a high crow but in actuality sometimes i dont get any crows at all. plus if all i have is one high crow i might want to use that crow for Molly's debt of gratitude trigger or indeed it might be my only severe and someone else wants it.
  14. I’m still not convinced by the forgotten Marshall. Played against a Zipp crew last night and he did manage to summon a punk zombie and a nigh terror but I found my self in many turns just noodling around wondering what to do with him. For his cost I could have hired the punk and the night terror and not have had to worry about slow or wounds. I’ll perservere but I find his utility isn’t great
  15. Kirai is great as a second master. Ikyro can take care of armour and raising a goryo is just sooo good. Seeing ikyro doesn’t count to her summon limit she can get both out at the start of the game. Raise something else and she has covered her cost. I would expect second masters to be not allowed in gaining grounds
