    Gravity Well (Anna Lovelace) - is the AP spent?

    Tangled Shadows, for example, does not check whether you are ABLE to place until after success, so you can definitely declare a target, take the duel, and then be screwed because you can't place there. Not an "illegal target," but one without potential for placement, all the same.

    It's not as simple as "that is that." As Paddywhack stated, your opponent couldn't place there, they might be able to place elsewhere. To clarify, depending on the action, if you didn't have to choose a target prior to succeeding, you could choose to place elsewhere. That said, I think most effects like this tend to have an enemy target prior to the flip. The best example I can think of is Tangled Shadows on Lilith. You target an enemy model and, upon success, place a friendly model in base contact. Here, if you select a target in her bubble and flip, you are SOL, AP is spent.

    And, I have never seen him on the table.

    January 2018 Errata

    I don't think there is an appetite to change any of the models in the starter box. The last thing you want, when attempting to bring new players in, is immediately slap them with a need to get new cards. Honestly, they probably belong on the lower end of the curve, as they are teaching tools.

    Guild...and Guild only for Starters

    Personally, I think Thralls are perfect for Lucius' theme, as they are lackeys on chains that he can order around. But, beyond that, look at Wardens, Mounted Guards, and Guild Hounds. The hounds are great to pad out activations and can be a PITA when running in a pack. Riflemen can sometimes work well with Dashell, but is very board dependent. If shooting lanes are bad, they are worthless. If you are going law themed, the Jury can be an excellent add. She puts hurt out and adds some decent utility (can also synergize with the lawyers).

    An "honest" trial + leave it to luck

    You declare triggers before determining success. The added mask works for both.

    Jack Daw vs. Neverborn! Halp me!

    That was much less salacious than I was hoping for. But, interesting challenge you've set for yourself.

    Jack Daw vs. Neverborn! Halp me!

    Well, now I have to demand an answer. That phrasing makes it too tempting, like a big red button that says "do not press."

    Lucius and Malifaux Child

    I honestly can't come up with an answer. The ability doesn't mention Graves by name. It is restricted to once per ally, but only by the model doing it. Hopefully they will enlighten us.

    Mimic Lucius

    At that point, buying two singles, it is likely worth just getting the crew. If you want Vogel, you are taking Surprisingly Loyal, so lawyers can come too. I've seen lawyers do good work, fees on a beater will make them think twice sometimes.

    Hannah vs Lazarus

    Ah yes, Von Schill's "finish the curtains" action. So crucial when attempting to properly decorate...

    Black Friday Sale

    Do we have any idea what time the sale will go live?
  13. Ludvig is correct, the two you have will make for a good start and it will take you quite a few games just to get a handle on them (I recommend easing in with Lilith first, she can play a very straight forward, killy game, but to really shine I think you need to use her as board control instead of a hammer. It is a good lesson for the game as a whole). Among other masters, you have some good models for Lucius, that could also be transferred into Guild, if you wanted (graves and tannen). Rougarou are decent too. I personally just prefer Lucius to Lynch, so that's my bias.

    some lucius clarification needed

    Jesus, f-ing autocorrect. Thats what I get for not checking.

    some lucius clarification needed

    Mainly because I do not own Queeg or the investigator at this point. That said, some long range shooting is pretty nice to have in NB. Nobody is expecting it.
