  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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˜….
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. @lusciousmccabe amazing. I would assume though, that this was built some time ago already for your pet spider, rather than for gaming purposes..๐Ÿ˜…
  8. The thing is that I have not hit once with him๐Ÿ˜‘.. good points though, especially on forage end game denial. Next time I try him I will try to make an effort to spare a high card for him so maybe he will hit eventually.๐Ÿ˜š
  9. After a long break, I got to play again a few days ago ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. The game was supposed to be against Dr McMourning, but my brother forgot to bring his cards. We have the app, but he decided to rather borrow my Zoraida crew so that we both have physical cards. I did not get to run my new Great Plan of Envy & Scorpius.. Anyway, it was an enjoyable game of Cursed Idols with standard deployment. I did not find a way to stop First Mate and 2 silurid from harnessing the leyline as well as scoring idols twice. However, ss miner delivered an important message to the old hag, and Cojo helped in harnessing the leyline once as well as scoring idols twice. So it ended 4-4. Myranda changed to cerberus beginning of round two and went silurid hunting on one flank. Almost got one down before being mauled to pulp by the First Mate. Marcus led the show from center, watching the mauler wrestle Juju for no effect and shouting to Cojo to get things done. After a few games, the Jackalope appears to be the killiest member of the team. It always kills someone, and never gets killed. An amazing totem, one to be proud of ๐Ÿ˜Š. On the other hand, I have taken Paul 3 times, and never gotten anything out of him. I think he would need a red joker to hit. His presense is such that I even forgot to activate him the first turn (Marcus and Cojo had moved him so that they were nicely lined up..) My brother agreed that he can retroactively take one concentrate action. Then he shot Juju, missed, missed, pushed an idol once, and died.๐Ÿ™„ Anyway, any tips regarding Paul are welcome..
  10. @Caedrus Pastori signing in. Pledging my remaining few swampfiends, and most of Lucius' elite. At a rate of one model per month, I would guess that should be doable.๐Ÿ˜Š so enforcer it shall be.
  11. @Nikodemus: haha, summer cottage, bbq and warhammer day and night all weekend was what we did when I was still young๐Ÿคฃ. However, with all my family responsibilities, pets and work, I might have to politely turn off your offer, as tempting and generous as it is. For now, at leastโ˜บ๏ธ.
  12. @TeaCrusader: http://www.greenstuffworld.com/en/ I have used mostly stuff from here, but yes, there are aquarium plastic plants as well๐Ÿ˜. I happened to get some with a used aquarium we bought some time ago, and we prefer real plants for that. So got them essentially free. Unfortunately they appear to be rather expensive normally.
  13. Hello. Sooo.. A short introduction of myself: I started playing and painting miniatures back in the days of Hero Quest and Warhammer 40k second edition. After some 15 years of active playing, I have been quite inactive (family, work, even other hobbies..) Also I have had some issues with my shoulders / neck, which have somewhat limited my painting. Three years ago I found Malifaux, and bought some miniatures with no intent to play the game - I was planning to just use them for role playing and such. Anyway, I love the aesthetics a lot. And like the characterful rules a lot as well. I have played very casually, meaning like less than 20 games during that three years, but I like the game and hobby side a lot. Now for a few months I have had some time, health and energy to work on a few of my Swampfiends and some gaming terrain, so I thought I might post a few pictures here. I admit, this is my first time using Imgur, and I hope I got it right. I also have the Bokor, Adze, Lucky Emissary and Merris coming in the post to finish off the team. Unfortunately, Bad Things Happened to my Zoraida and her totem a long ago, when I used some parts of both for other projects as I was not intending to play her. So some kind of proxy for them as well as First Mate is coming. I doubt I will play her much anyway, as I have understood from the forum posts that she might provide somewhat negative play experiences. And as I play very rarely, I rather avoid that. I also have Lucius crew ordered, that should be more than enough to paint for the next year. I think I will try to motivate myself to get it painted by joining the monthly challenge. Hopefully casual updates will appear here also. At least I will be building more terrain whenever I get the money to buy some tufts and need an hour or two self-therapy session.. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Cheers, Pastori
  14. Also corrected since we got a copy of the rulebook๐Ÿ˜
