    How do Alley Cats work?

    From what I remember (I didn't pick them up last time), people either based cats, or split them up to 1 a base. Really depends on how many cats you think you'll need to play with. I don't play hamelin, but seemed a lot of people split them up cause the rat engine took a lot of models and they didn't to run out.
  3. I personally like the lack of master specific upgrades. Yes, there were some cool ones in M2E, but looking at the forums there was a lot of 'x emissary is trash with x master, only bring him with y master'. I can only assume they were nearly impossible to balance against each other, since you needed to check a whole host of upgrades before tweaking something. Will I bring them less in M3E? Probably, but I'm ok with that, rather than a list that always has a 10ss tax. I'm also hoping that they're buffed/balanced such that I want to bring them for their own abilities, rather than how they work with my master. As for the price, emissaries are way bigger than your usual enforcer model, so they cost more to produce / package / ship. You can't really compare their cost to that of a regular enforcer / hench that's on a 30mm base and in a 11 - 15 dollar box. If you want to compare cost, compare it to hannah / the whiskey / rail golem or other models that require a full sprue + to build. They're at 35, to the 40 for the emissaries, so I don't see the issue.

    Wyrd at Pax Unplugged 2018?

    I was wondering this too, as I'm trying to decide if I want to pull the trigger and go.

    Make 2 intro crews in NB

    I've been trying to get undergrads interested in Malifaux, so I've been doing this a lot lately. I haven't had much luck with my Neverborn ones (for some reason none of my friends have chosen neverborn!) but I've made lists all the same. In general, I've had a harder time making lists in Neverborn, since so many neverborn models are glass cannons. I can't imagine teaching someone with Candy/Cade/2 sorrows. When I do it, I've been leaning towards something like the starter sets, so 1 hench, 1 enforcer, 2 minion (of the same type), so newbies would only have to learn 3 models. I try to keep the SS cost about the same, so like a 8-9 cost hench, a 8ish cost enforcer and 2 5-6 cost minions. Beyond the crews, I give each player 4 SS and have both teams work towards 1 Strategy (Ply for Information) and 1 Scheme (Search the Ruins). This helps keep it from being a total blood bath, and allows for some movement / scheme marker / etc abilities. Here's some lists I built for neverborn: Aeslin Cyclops 2 bultingens Angel Eyes Serena (or Lilitu) 2 Bloodwretches (or Young Nephilim) Juju Adze 2 waldgiests Huggy Tannen 2 Illuminated

    Need help with Molly

    If you're thinking of getting some belles, you could look into picking up seamus instead. Itd give you a hench that can move around belles + molly.
  8. If it was sealed, I'd contact wyrd using the damaged / mispacked form (you can get there from the contact page https://www.wyrd-games.net/contact). I've used it twice (missing a stat card, and mispacked models) and both times they responded quickly and sent the missing items free of charge. Now I need to open my nightmare ulix crew to see if i got all the right cards....

    Where can one buy a Freikorps trapper?

    Gadzooks gaming sells split models, they don't have trappers in stock right now, but you could try asking when they'll be back in stock.

    Third Edition is Coming!!

    Been checking this thread on and off. Thanks Mason for giving answers to a lot of people's questions. I love that this company cares and responds to the community so quickly and thoughtfully... Specially on something that's not even in beta yet. Super looking forward to m3e. I'm sure the changes will make me wanna pick up the masters I don't currently own (and new boxes for the ones I do own to get new sculpts / models ).

    Backdraft Gremlin Boys

    Proxy played with popcorn and Cooper yesterday in a brewer list against kaeris with the arcanist side of the box (symbols and we both took search and undercover entourage). Popcorn was pretty fun at denying points in search the ruins. Cooper didn't do much (no scrap to summon off of), tho her armor +2 did slow down a couple hits against her. They would of been more vicious if I wasn't playing against the fire golem who could just take / eat all the burning, but I wanted to see how both sides of the box interacted.
  12. Awesome Monday preview. I wasn't expecting this for the nightmare edition and I'm looking forward to picking it up since it's a master who's original box didn't excite me. Although, I may have to get the classic box too since I like the idea of grizzled ulix surrounded by bright ponies in kind of a 'how did I end up with these annoying buggers' way. That said, I am a bit annoyed that, for once, I may not have the brightest/most pastel crew on the table. Guess I'll have to work harder to get the least grim-dark crew possible. I'm thinking rainbows and glitter effects

    Any players in Metrowest Boston/Worcester?

    Hi, I'm not sure about communities, and I'd be interested in the same thing. I'm relatively new (been playing for 8ish months but I don't get many games in) and live in Worcester. I haven't found a local shop that has tablespace setup, so I play at home. If you know of a place that could be set up for malifaux, I'd meet up for a game. I have the mat / terrain / etc needed so that's not a worry, I just don't know anywhere that has war game table space for rent. In general, if I want to play against others I do it on a weekend and drive farther. There are communities of players in the Providence / Hartford / Hadley areas, downside is most of their regular play days are weeknights and that's too far of a drive for me. I have gone to a few tournaments recently, and while I get destroyed the people are nice and its a good way to find out who's from where. There's a tournament coming up in Westport Ma at Table Top games June 2nd that I'm planning on going to. Beyond that, if you wanted to check out shops, here's the places I'd recommend: Table top Games - Westport Ma - Has a full line of models, has tables with the right amount of terrain, staff plays / is knowledgeable (I asked a lot of n00bie questions to them when I was starting out). Battlestandard - East Windsor CT - Stocks some models, has a decent amount of used models, so you may be able to find some deals / rarities (I picked up a trixiebell for 5 dollars last weekend), has a hench / players who play regularly. I've also gone to tournaments at Game On in Warwick, though if I was driving to RI, I'd prefer to go to Table Top cause they have more stock to buy. I've also heard good things about Off The Wall in Hadley MA, but I haven't been (though I've played against some people from there in tournaments). Hope this helps. Feel free to drop me a PM if you want to know more. -Muraki

    Help choosing a model to complete an order.

    Thanks pyrflamme! I went with toshiro and I'll admit I didn't look at his card before tossing him out of the running to begin to start. Thanks for the advice, now I just gotta decide how I want to paint him.
