Hello! New player. New Arcanist.
Seeking advice on how best to maximize the models I have. My group has a Resser who plays McMourning (with a brutal poison game) and now Reva with the Carrion Emmissary, a Neverborn who mostly plays Pandora with woes, but recently picked up Lilith and some Nephilim, and a Neverborn who plays Jakob Lynch.
I have Ramos M&SU and some extra spiders. I have proxies for Soulstone Miners and the Mobile Toolkit. I haven’t ever really used any upgrades, and I don’t spend soulstones much. I probably should.
I usually have Joss kill the MT to start a scrap summoning train, getting two spiders each the first two turns. Just to make sure I’m reading the rules correctly, I need 16 for two spiders, right? And they come in at three wounds + slow, yes?
I’m thinking about trying the following list just to shake things up a little:
Bleeding Edge Tech
Steam Arachnid Swarm
Still want to have Joss kill the MT, but keeping him near the spiders will let them heal on activation, so I’d spend the stones for summoning three each turn.
Howard can go forth to beat things (hopefully with Reactivate from the BrassArach), while the soulstone miner can pop up somewhere at the end of turn one, drop a scheme marker if needed, then start generating stones.
Ramos will focus on summoning spiders and placing the Strike Markers to mess with movement shenanigans. Maybe summon an Electrical Creation to head toward my opponent and blow up nearby.
It seems reckless, but I’m tired of playing conservatively and getting trapped near my own deployment zone.
