  1. Playing in a growth type league this month (folks are free to change crews or not week to week, but mostly it's to get new folks familiar with the game). This week we were at 35ss. I ran Guild Lucius - Lucius + 2 stones The Scribe (0) Agent 46 (9) Alan Reid (8) Investigator (7) False Witness (5) Changeling (4) Up against Neverborn- Nekima + 2 stones Blood Hunter (0) Hayridden (9) Lilitu (7) Young Nephilim (7) BBS (6) Tot (4) Was corner deployment Turf War. I went for Harness the Leyline & Outflank, my opponent took Take Prisoner on False Witness & Search the Ruins. Had an early victory when Nekima turn 1 charged into my bubble of Scribe, Alan, & Lucius only to have 46 charge in and get 4 attacks on her between end of turn 1 and beginning of turn 2 (1 attack turn 1, 2 during his activation T2, 1 from Lucius commanding him), which killed Nekima. In the end it didn't matter much though since multiple nephilim grew up and I had 2 matures and another young curbstomp me. By end of turn 3 we called it for time. I had lost 46, the scribe, and the investigator by then and Alan was about to die. Talking through turns 4 & 5, we would have ended the game with Nekima winning 7 to 4. Definitely not a great matchup as the nephilim had multiple focus on most models by the end of T1, then the on the Young's attacks bypass Intimidating Authority on Alan & the Investigator. So the beating plus lack of any other defensive tech saw my crew bite the dust (After killing Nekima my hand was in sad shape). Then the mobility let my opponent go on to score all his schemes after removing my models from the table. I'm trying to learn from this game though since I want to get better with Lucius and against a threat like Nekima. Initial thoughts are to use more ranged attacks and have armor/more durable models to go up against all the beaters. Would love any other advice you all have to offer.
  2. Remember Mimic cannot target Masters.
  3. Great write up as always! Definitely agree more terrain will cut down on the brutalness of a gun line, or at least create more interactive play from them. Here’s the table I set up for my game today. It’ll be Lucius v someone.
  4. Cornelius Basse (Guild, Master) & Mad Dog Brackett (Outcast, Hench) both have min 3 shotguns w/ built in blasts. Not sure if there are others..

    22.03 Update

    So this happened in my game vs @muraki actually. Nellie made one of my Marshals interact but there was no one with Exclusive Interview beside them, so I placed a scheme marker out of Nellie’s LOS (knowing she might make me repeatedly interact). But Nellie still drew a card and gained Focus. So that feels like it’s working when you compare to what happens when your model is covered by Exlusive Interview - Nellie makes you interact and then controls that interact, so can place the marker in LOS to use those pushes/moves and draw a card and gain Focused.
  6. Based on my few games against the new Nellie, the strats and schemes here aren’t really a great pool for Journalist since there’s very little incentive for the opponent to take the interact action. Or rather, it’s not a scheme heavy pool. Journalists just aren’t good at Dig or Claim Jump, and can’t do Hold Up at all. So being limited to outflank and deliver isn’t the worst (except this was wedge), but it forces you to spread your journalists out away from the enemies planting the bombs, which denies you the focus + card draw. I am curious why the 2 false witnesses over 2 field reporters. Their Follow a lead and Serene Countenace makes them a solid pick for the Outflank on wedge. Definitley agree that the Undercover Reporter will fold quickly against an enemy that decides to attack him. He seems to perform best for me/my opponent when he pops up and does scheming in the enemy deployment or sides of the board.
  7. Personally I've been really happy with Scale's contribution when I run Marshals. Yeah he's a 4ss totem, so i don't expect him to live long when I send him into the fighting. However, with the misery (newly named something else) aura & his Df trigger he should be pinging an enemy for 4ish damage before dying and giving me a card. He's also significant, so can be a wasted activation to claim a turf marker and counts for Hold Up Their Forces (which he usually does well at). As for summoning, I really don't think Lady J needs that. It would be one more thing to have to balance her around and it's pretty late in the process to fine tune something like that. I think Lady J & Marshals are in a great spot.
  8. No Worries. Hopefully your day gets better soon! The point about engagement ranges is a good one. There are only two significant Journalists with engagement ranges now (Phiona & Undercover). Forget trying to score Hold Up with them.
  9. I'm a little confused by this and maybe i'm missing something (suuuper long day at work). The strategy marker is 30mm, so a 2" aura will cover that if a journalist is in base contact with it, thus preventing the enemy from interacting with it to move it.
  10. @Flippin' Wyrd Matt what was your crew? Ill be trying a game tomorrow with her.
  11. If Lucius Issues Command to three different models with Following Orders in his activation you still draw 3 cards, since the ability is once per activation per model with the ability.
  12. Since all the cool kids are doing it... On a thread in the Rezzer section, Kyle clarified they're more specifically looking for what individual models currently won't see table time. What models do we think those are, and why?
  13. Didn’t realize that. Course now I need to go find her. Ill stand by the alt lawyer idea though. Need a third lawyer and more diversification in Lucius’ legal team.
  14. Miss Grievance or Ms. Demeanor - an alt female Lucius or lawyer (since I need that third lawyer )
