    Waldo's Weekly - Serving Up Summons

    The summoning action can be taken once per turn. That's not the same as only being able to summon a single model per turn. I can see some Masters being able to summon multiple cheap, chaff units (Ressers, for example, or maybe Gremlins). What the rule change does do, though, is stop a Master sitting at the back of the table summoning a horde of models, which is a good thing. There is also the matter of the other abilities that summoning Masters will get. Dashel can summon 1 Guard a turn, but has abilities designed to buff and support the Guards around him. That's where the variety will come with other Masters.

    Love the look of Dashel, and the changes to Summoning mean I may not need to buy as many Guild Guards as I thought I was going to have to. Hurrah, cos putting the lady one together is a pain in the backside!

    How would you base Lucius?

    I have cobbled street bases for most of my Malifaux models (the ones without cobbled bases are simple black sand, just because the models were too much of a pain to get off the bases I'd already glued them to). I've built my Lucius but am not basing him till he's painted. He'll be on a base with a big section of pavement though, overlooking the cobbles, whereas the minions are mostly on fully cobbled bases. The idea being that the minions get sent out to do the work whil ~~Lucius looks on from the sidelines.

    What To Do While Waiting for ME3?

    I picked up my first box when a shop was closing down so the selection was limited and I chose the robots. I think my other choice was McMourning and I'm not a fan of the Undead. Sonnia is definitely next on the list though! I've already got some cheap Witchling Handlers in preparation! Definitely. There's a Sonnia crew on sale now that I'm keeping an eye on - another bargain for the collection!

    Yeah, my painting skills aren't up to that! I do like painting fire though. And looking at fire. And setting fires....

    What To Do While Waiting for ME3?

    I'm in a similar boat. Well, I've owned a Hoffman crew since 2012, and a Ramos crew to supplement that from about 2014, but I never played my first game until March this year! Obviously Ramos will be DMH (as is Ryle 😪), but Hoffman will be dual-faction so I'm not worrying about it. I figure the time is right to go all-in based on what I know (but I'm a bit obsessive when it comes to collecting, so take any advice with a pinch of salt!). Since the M3E announcement, there has been several bargain bundles on eBay. I decided to double-down on Guild and am now the proud owner of Perdita, Lucius and Lady Justice crews in addition to Hoffman, and have several other models from the faction to supplement whichever I decide to play with. I also got my hands on a well-painted Lucas McCabe crew, but he will sadly not be Guild in M3E (but does give me an in with Ten Thunders once I've completed my Guild collection). I aim to get as many of the current Guild releases as possible before M3E hits, then I'll have crews for all the Guild Masters (because Nellie and Sonnia are next on the list!) at a much cheaper price than if I would have paid for them at full retail. I'll even have a Dashel crew, but I imagine I'll want some more Guild Guards to supplement him! Now I just need to actually get some more games in!

    What's the appeal to the Guild?

    And she's the one who associates with cannibalism.

    M3E Guild Prediction(read: Wish)

    Unless the scrap marker rules haven't changed, but the pool of things that drop them have. Although, that may well require new abiilities that caused scrap markers to be introduced. Don't you just love pointless discussion of things we haven't seen yet? 😁

    Possibly, but Joss and Howard should be the ones with an Amalgamation keyword, rather than the likes of the Peacekeeper or Watcher (i.e. amalgamations of man and machine, rather than pure machine). Construct being teh keyword makes sense to me, especially with the vast majority of constructs being Guild or Arcanist, whihc will be both of Hoffmans factions. The likes of Ice Gamin have lost the Construct keyword, so it stands to reason other non-robotic constructs might have lost it too.

    I hadn't seen that page, but looking at Ramos' card it seems that the keyword hiring might be more restricted than I thought. Or it could just be a rule to limit Ramos to Arcanist Constructs. It does seem to indicate that Construct is one of the hiring keywords, so that will likely be Hoffman's hiring pool (surprising nobody).

    Why do people like playing the Guild? For the same reason people like playing the Empire in Star Wars games. With added cowboys.
