    Monday Preview - Mysterious Gentlemen

    I mean it would kind of fit right into ressers! Essentially another form of Bloated Stench...

    Monday Preview - Mysterious Gentlemen

    Could maybe pull some abilities from Guild? They remind me of lawyers or something similar. Possibly intended to bring something fresh to Ressers but also be useful to hire from the Domador de Cadaveres?

    I’m in the same boat, finding small things to distract me (lazy day after a lot of flying yesterday). Refreshing the store all too often

    Resurr Shadow Boxing

    If you see the have counterspell swap to other schemes - Punish the Weak is easily doable with Datsue/Madame, and those models will very likely be able to be lured if needed. Vendetta is also a pretty easy 2 VP with Belles and you can choose a target that doesn't have Counterspell.

    Resurr Shadow Boxing

    I like this list to try and live the dream: Spirit Molly w/Datsue Ba, Madame Sybelle, Carrion Emissary (Carrion Conflux), Necrotic Machine and 3 Belles. Lure one of your opponent's enforcers+ (and if you super live the dream itll be your Setup target) across the board to be within 4" of all 3 belles, score public demo. If you happen to get your Setup target Lured - Datsue Ba puts up her aura that when a friendly non-Peon spirit model dies put a scheme marker in base contact. Molly summons a drowned within the aura which dies instantly giving you 2 markers for Setup, them summon another or place a marker otherwise. With schemes out of the way early/able to do them easily you can then focus on the Symbols and denial - I took the upgrade that reveals your opponents schemes so you'll know what you need to do. Best your opponent can do is avoid LoS with the Belles, but with Sybelle calling one and companion activating that gives you flexibility to catch someone out unawares. 20% chance or less to do both schemes Turn 1.

    Yan Lo tactica!

    I had a lot of fun with this list tonight, idk how well it would do competitively but it did very well casually. Declared Faction: Resurrectionists Crew Name: Yan Summon Eng 50ss Leader: Yan Lo - Cache:(4) Awakening 1ss Follow Their Footsteps 1ss Reliquary 1ss Soul Porter 3ss Asura Roten 8ss Philip and the Nanny 8ss Haunting Cries 0ss Toshiro The Daimyo 9ss Command the Graves 1ss Corpse Bloat 2ss Sun Quiang 8ss Rotten Belle 5ss Asura summons a zombie 10” or so from Toshiro, walks and places scheme marker for P&N. Soul Porter pushes Toshiro and Yan Lo. Rotten Belle can drop a Scheme if needed (if your hand is awful). Then P&N double cycles. Toshiro tips out his spleen suffering 3 damage, Sun pushes into base contact and places a scheme marker (this could happen rather than belle’s). Toshiro then summons an Ashigau off his spleen and mindless zombie from Asura. Should be fairly easy to at least get 1 9 crow+ with P&N cycle. Sun activates healing Toshiro and both Ashigaru 1. Then heals Toshiro back to full as his first action and can then walk. One interesting thing is that the wording on the summon for Ashigaru says, “summon an Ashigaru and then it suffers damage...” which means Sun can push to each Ashigaru and interact if you really needed it for something - you’ll probably have some cards to get rid of. This summoning and card cycling can happen easily on T2 and requires very little effort. And since Ashigaru can charge for a 1 that’s not too bad for a T2 summon close to a fight. It is light on Chi generation but I had no issues gaining the Chi I need once things picked up.

    How’s Seamus these days?

    Yeah that would have been a solid pick up - I’m a little surprised myself really! But you’re right, Valedictorian with ram trigger to get ++ makes it possible to get a cheated severe for 6 on Kang fairly easily. And no stones... Also for the time being I’ve been bringing Carrion Effigy as insurance, 1 action to remove horror duel immunity within 5”. It’s not perfect and isn’t everywhere but it could help vs Kang while he’s alive. I think I’ll nearly always bring Decaying on someone, but I tend to play aggressively (hence my only Ressers masters being Reva/Seamus). Being able to cancel stones is good enough, denying healing is situationally amazing.

    How’s Seamus these days?

    I’ve only played Seamus twice now, so I’m definitely not the authority on him. However both of those games were very enjoyable. I’ve been using The Valedictorian as a dive buddy with Seamus. Valedictorian takes Decaying Aura and Necrotic Prep to make her a royal pain in the rear. With her 3” engage range, all her defensive abilities, and Seamus’s WP reduction aura the pair become incredibly hard to deal with. I dove into my opponent’s Mei Feng list on Turn 2, my two models vs Mei, Toshiro, Oiran, a couple of the Lion things in 10T, Chiaki. The Valedictorian finally died late turn 4. She only died because Mei RJed her kick damage flip. Every turn at least 3 models were paralyzed because he would use his cards to try to remove Valedictorian and then the horror duels began. It’s a solid way to lock down your opponent I’ve found, but it’s an imperfect strategy. I’ll be testing it more and see how it goes...

    It's on the Grab and Drop upgrade

    Yeah he had already declared assasinate haha But you're right, they won't fall for that again! Oh my word, in ordering steam fitters soon and I absolutely can't wait to use them. Especially vs Thunder Misaki or any blaster. I mean, not saying that their armor plating isn't amazing all the time... so good. So. Good.

    Absolutely! Amina to me is just an absolute beast of a control piece. I have a few examples from only the few games I've gotten in with her. One: Guard the Stash, my opponent put a 10T brother dedicated to one of the stash markers - I mean those things are rocks, right? On turn 2 I was able to make him a peon and insignificant for the Strat and Schemes erasing the use of to 10T brother. A different game, two: Sonnia had severe damaged Joss and blasted into Johan and Amina. Because of Amina's ability where she can discard a card to push the model that damaged her I pushed Sonnia 2" which one, took her out of casting range on my models, and two out her into melee with a steam arachnid who was trying to sneak around for scheme purposes. Also her interact aura to give you soul stones is amazing. Another more general use, in Quick Murder pools put Imbued Protection on her to make her Df/Wp 7. Good luck opponent! You then may wonder what to do about a beater - take the Coryphee and combine them into the duet Medicial Automaton I've only played with once but it was well worth 5SS. Twice in the game I was able to take advantage of his discard to place a model within 3" into base with him. The second time this happened as after Misaki had charged Kaeris and Red Jokered the damage (ouch) but for a discard I placed Kaeris well out (one the other side of the automaton) of Misaki's range and ended her activation. The automaton was also able to heal 5 wounds in one activation. I have yet to get into an encounter where his hard to kill abilities were necessary but hope to try it out soon! Place the automaton near a high value model, preferably out if LoS of any enemy models. If the model you're protecting gets shot or charged you can easily discard to remove it from harms way. It's almost like giving a model a better version of Butterfly Jump.

    M2e Kaeris

    I've been on a hardcore Kaeris kick recently. One of my favorite things about her is that she can function just fine on her own, but her upgrades drastically change your play style with her so there are several ways to play her. My recent discovery is the brutality of a Coryphee Duet with Wings of Fire. Being able to setup the duet behind some form of cover, then grant them flying to Fly 7 inches over the terrain then charge a model from a long distance and obliterate it with glinting steel scythe hands is beautiful. Amina is quickly becoming one of my favorite models, she is always useful and usually in a fairly critical way. Diminishing attackers' effectiveness, giving you soul stones depending on the scheme pool, and upsetting the balance of the game in general. Such a bargain! Combine her with the new Medical Automaton and you have a recipe for ever living models with control.
