  1. Nice. A realization I got just recently: thin your paints. Painted 15 years without doing so..๐Ÿ˜€ I just received my sealed executioners box from a trusted ebay seller. Only one sprue inside, though.. I guess I take this as an opportunity to convert Mr. Langston, whom I have just lying around, to a new purpose.. I also got very inspired by the Perdita tactica I just read here, might have to repaint her before progressing with the others..๐Ÿ˜„
  2. @Diddick That is some superb OSL and masterclass painting in general, awesome photographing also. Great, inspiring work๐Ÿ‘ @ everyone else also, great month in painting them plastic little guys, even as the world is what it is. Keep on motivated and strong, and stay safe.
  3. Finally calling these two guys done. I have painted them for more than a month, 15 minutes to half an hour every now and then as family duties permit ๐Ÿ™‚. What to say.. Starting to gain some understanding of the contrast paints, looong way to go with nmm.. But I like them. Freehanding the cloak was very difficult, my hands were shaking from anxiety to finish the model, and my brush is all but new..๐Ÿ˜… @Caedrus 24 stones this month. One lawyer and steward waiting for brush and April. Then I will continue to some guard.. Executioners are already ordered, and Dashel box is next on the list while waiting for Alan and witnesses special order. I will likely have to skip the changelings and doppelganger as I tend to have a substantially younger audience watching me paint and play than is suitable for the sculpts.. ๐Ÿ˜
  4. Do I read correct that it is now confirmed, that mimic retains any built-in positives and suits. Some light in the darkness of playing Marcus and Lucius.. I think Marcus really did not need the nerf.โ˜น๏ธ
  5. Very nice progress on so many miniatures๐Ÿ˜ƒ. My contribution this month is another two models for Lucius, again practice with contrasts, nmm & some lining. Pretty happy with them, despite the shortcomings. This crew will likely break all my records on time spent per miniature.. But fun times, trying new things and just sitting for a moment to paint.. @Caedrus the Scribe and a lawyer, for 8 more stones. Edit: the bases are from https://www.brokentoadstore.co.uk/index.php?id_category=76&controller=category premium guild ball bases.
  6. Thanks Ogid, somehow I have not thought about Cojo for a long time, certainly not since Archie appeared. I think I will give him a try.๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  7. Thank you, I think this clears it for us๐Ÿ˜ƒ.
  8. Had a game again with my brother on Saturday. Not going to try and remember the details, it was standard deployment plant explosives. We had almost identical crews as last time, though now I took ssc on Myranda (3stones + 1ss miner was definitely too little for that, all stones went to hand improvement and chimerancy). Should have propably dropped poor Paul for stones (he did nothing again, the few severe cards I got in hand were needed elsewhere so he hit nothing). My brother dropped Sebastian for another Autopsy and some terrifying regeneration on his flesh costructs. Taking two autopsies instead of a rogue necro was just because the latter is still in the box.. Archie was a serious nuisance again, I had no means to seriously threaten him as he just jumped across the table turn one to battle my models that are the least interested in fighting him, Envy and the Scorpius. It basically took Myranda, Mauler, Envy and Scorpius to hold Archie pinned so he does not proceed further with his bombs. We both managed one point on deliver a message, and both failed other scheme. I had vendetta with Envy on Rafkin. The Mauler was supposed to just scare him late first turn, but flipped RJ damage for 6. He then went hiding for some healing. Turn three I shot him with Envy when he was on 5 or so wounds, only to flip three severes on double negative. Luckily this was his claim jumper, though. I scored all four on plant, we ended 5-3 for Marcus (only projected last turn, there was not much that could affect the outcome). Great game again, still took us over six hours to get through four turns though.. A few questions: 1) how does plant explosives work? We both dropped a marker on centerline turn one, this meant that both of us get automatic points turns two and three if those markers stay, that felt incorrect but was the best we could understand. Also, what markers are considered friendly for not being able to drop within 6? This was confusing. 2) How do you deal with Archie?๐Ÿค” It seems a ruthless, min 3 model (preferably with flurry, fast or something) would be needed to have any chance to take him down. Or half a warband. Thanks for any answers, and sorry for not writing in more detail this time, life is somewhat busy atm.๐Ÿ˜‘
  9. Does this mean that a Riotbreaker's crowd control also prevents enemies from attacking an ally that is trying to disengage within the aura? Nice, never thought about that before๐Ÿค”
  10. First models for my Lucius crew. Two investigators totaling 14ss I believe. My first time trying contrast paints, nmm, black lining, etc. Was fun. ๐Ÿ˜€ I believe I learned a lot, and realize there is so much more to learn.
  11. Lucius supporting Marcus and his flying, armored Rougarou duo is something I plan to try against some very hard to wound Undead in the not so distant future. Don't know if its super powerful, but seems nice on paper.
  12. After all the Christmas hassle, finally found time to assemble Lucius and his friends. Love the sculpts. First time basecoating white. Pledging one of them for now๐Ÿ˜….
  13. Sounds reasonable. I usually end up using his actions in a very questionable way anyways, after turn 2 he is just my jack-of-all-trades. I may have to try and be more efficient and focused with him.
  14. I don't remember the exact details, but armor to mauler and scorpius, wings to marcus and myranda, claws and something else to jackalope is my kind of basic setup. I think mauler had a second (not so important) upgrade also. This is spread for turns 1 and 2 as cards allow, I prefer not to stone for mask. Leaving myranda without ss cache was just a last minute intuition that 3ss might be too few..๐Ÿค” and I wanted to give Paul one more chance!
  15. Had a rematch with my brother yesterday. Did not make notes, but just a few thoughts.. Marcus (Arcanists) vs. Dr McMourning (Resurrectionists) Strategy: Turf War with corner deployment Crews: Marcus - 5 soulstones Jackalope Myranda Scorpius Envy Paul Crockett Mauler Soulstone Miner - Magical Training Chosen schemes: Vendetta (Envy on Flesh Construct), Harness the Leyline Dr McMourning - 5 soulstones Zombie Chihuahua Sebastian Rafkin Flesh Construct #1 Flesh Construct #2 Guild Autopsy Archie Chosen schemes: Harness the Leyline, Dig their Graves Quick runthrough: There was a big building in the center, with limited entry for big models (could not fit through all the small doors and windows), with one turf in the middle of the floor. Turn one mauler and myranda started toward NE corner, Paul flipped my SE corner turf, and scorpius headed SW with Envy. Marcus dealt upgrades and miner buried. McMourning headed to center, Sebastian and one construct to NE corner, and Archie, autopsy and Envy's target construct went for SW corner. Turn two began with Archie hitting scorpius, I defended first attack with black joker and even armoured plates could not save the poor creature from utter destruction. This was soon compensated though, as Envy flipped red joker on his first gatling attack's damage against his vendetta target, poisoned construct, leaving it at 1 health and scoring me first VP. Both scored strategy. Turns 3 and 4 saw a lot of blood being spilt on all sides of the table. Paul managed to kill off the wounded construct, while Archie was furiously trying to bury Envy alive to score Dig and prevent me from scoring endgame vendetta. Both masters had to do some scheming, but McMourning still had the time to kill my armoured mauler. It was 3 to 3 when we started last turn, and both sides still had multiple possibilities for further points. Turn 5 ended very luckily for me. Despite all his efforts, Archie (and the autopsy) did not manage to kill Envy. Sabertooth-shaped Myranda killed Sebastian, scoring turf. Marcus double schemed, scoring harness. So 6-3 for Marcus and the Arcanists. It was a very close fight, brutal, tactically challenging and fun. Lessons: fear Archie, and don't send Jackalope and Envy against him, they do better anywhere else. Damn numbskull ignores all my tricks.. I absolutely did not regret my last minute dropping of SS cache, though Myranda was very close to being killed and had to do some self healing, the extra stones kept Envy alive.
