  1. If Lucius ‘issue command’ Agent 46 to take a melee action, when does Agent 46 draw the card (with the Following Orders ability)? Before the shoot is taken or after? Does the timing change if it’s a charge action? (Eg is the card drawn after the push but before the melee?) Finally, if Lucius commands a changeling to then command A46, when does the changeling draw it’s card? Thanks
  2. So I’ve just started this wonderful game - and now I’m finally ready for my first fight. I’ve gone with the Ortegas and tried playing around with still water fix for a swampy theme.
  3. In your experience of M3e thus far, who stands out to you as the most engaging and rewarding master or set of masters? DMH ecluded, (sorry Collodi and Lilith) I'm slowly working my way through my collection (I don't own Marcus, Zoraida or Euripides), so far having tried Titania a few times, and Lucius and Dreamer each in a good number of games. In practice, Lucius is as entertaining as he has always been to me (even before he was any good), and I very much love new Dreamer, and my win ratio with him suggests he might even be stronger. Of the crews I haven't taken to the field yet,
  4. Good morning everyone, I have a question. In a list, we hace Lucius and 3 changeling Cangeling 1 activates, just like you "issue command" to lucius, lucius issues command to changeling 2, now comes the question. Can changeling 2 just like you "issue command" to lucius again? Issue command and just like you states the following. Issue Command 12" 7 - 12 This Action cannot target the same model more than once per Activation. Friendly Minion, Mimic, or Elite model only.Target takes a non-F Action. Just Like You! 5" Once per Activation. Target a
  5. Hey wyrdos, we have some troubles undestanding a combo one of us have developed, We need your help to get to the solution. This is the situation: Lucius, 3 changelings and the Agent 47. So this is the combo: Changeling 1 activates, uses his Once per Activation action to copy Issue Command, targeting Lucius to use Issue Command over Changeling 2. This way you get 1 card and the Changeling 2 uses his action to copy Issue Command again to target Lucius. At this point is where the doubts are. Issue command says: Issue Command 12" 7 - 12 This Action cannot

  7. So tonight me and my buddy played our 4th game of M3E beta, and I finally had the idea to post a battle report with some thoughts. For reference, I am new to Malifaux, but not war games and my opponent, Joebill, played M2E quite a bit. We played Plant Explosives in Flank Deployment LimitedClown Seamus - The Whisper upgrade CopyCat Killer Sybelle Bete Noir 2x Dead Doxies 2 x Crooligans Schemes - Search The Ruins and Breakthrough 2 vp each Strategy vp 3 Seamus and the crooligans were phenomenal as scheme runners. With Seamus using Secret P
  8. So I have been playing a bit of Lucius in Guild and throw it would be nice to through in a couple of out of faction Mimic’s into the lists just for fun (ok maybe that’s a bit of a lie, probably looking more for models that look cool). Obviously you have the Doppelganger but I am rather underwhelmed with the model (any cool ideas on how to kit bash this would be appreciated) so what other things go well with the masked man.
  9. Hello, I have an upcoming tournament this weekend were the TO has decide to use the Iron Scorpius rule. (You can only play a master once), it will be 3 rounds. I haven’t much experience preparing for a tournament with this characteristics so any input is appreciated. I usually play one master at most two (Nellie is usually the one I use) for tournaments so I adapt my list depending on my opponents faction with just minor changes, in this case I want to prepare 3 list and go with them. I will post the Rounds and my ideas, here goes. • Round 1 Extraction (Rams)/Standa
  10. Hey everyone, Witchling Thralls have been somewhat controversial in my group because they are expensive, but I really like their flexibility (ranged and melee attacks), (0) action to push, and their ability to auto-pass horror duals regardless of how poorly you flip. Given these traits, and their station as "minions," I imagine they would synergize well with Lucius and Queeg, who can use all sorts of out-of-activation shenanigans to get them up the field. In this case, I think they are better than other hard-hitting alternatives like Executioners, Grimwell, Gage, Judge, Jury, etc. H
  11. Is the card draw of A Thousand Faces into Pact, then resetting A Thousand Faces via Terracotta Warrior, worth the effort?
  12. Hi guys. After a few months of McCabe-ism, I finally finished painting the Lucius box and decided to play him in a tournament this weekend. I played two games with the tournament schemes this week to test-run him and he was really fun. I put together a list that seems ok, but am open to suggestions and tips. I listened to the Schemes & Stones podcast, but most of the models mentioned as awesome are not released yet, or always out of stock (i.e. The Jury, Monster Hunters). So, my list was: Lucius with Deep Pockets, Surprisingly Loyal and Legalese The Scribe Capta
  13. Misdirection, safe in my bed, secret service, defend me: All these defense triggers use the wording that some kind of other model suffers the effects of the action instead of this model. But only safe in my bed (dreamer) and secret service (lucius upgrade surprisingly loyal) have the additional part "as if it had been the target instead of this model, including any triggers" Now for most cases I would treat both wordings as being equivalent. However, when it comes to the terracotta warrior things are difficult. Can the terracotta warrior prevent damage that he got from lucius secret service tr
  14. Hi, got dragged into Wyrdness and Malifaux by the Iron Painter contest. During the pickup of some miniatures in my local store, I found out that quite some people here also play Malifaux. Long story short, I decided to give it a whirl. Now, I am mostly interested in painting and visuals, more so than in winning games. But not losing all the time would also be nice. I picked up the Lucius box and have an impulse buy lying around "The Wild Ones". What I would like to know - how to branch out from those 2? Restruction: Models must stay in theme and for starters
  15. Hi, we are Agent(s) of the Breach, a couple who are starting to play with Neverborn. We love to have a painting thread of every game we play because, not only It keeps us motivated, but also, it’s always interesting to have different points of view of the things you are working on and share ideas. So, please, feel free to comment or ask whatever you want, we’ll try to keep this updated At the moment, we’ve been focused on painting Zoraida’s box (testing colours and doing some brainstorming), so we don’t have much to show yet; only an (almost) finished Silurid.
  16. Hey chaps, I am aim to buy lucius' box but i play neverborn. So i have some questions on how to buy guild models for his "surprisingly loyal" upgrade. Question: do you think this upgrade really adds some value on neverborn playstyle? And if yes, then what models are worth collecting/painting. I intent to collect all neverborn models so i want peoples opinion before i start collecting out of faction models. Thanks!
  17. Hello, Can someone please clarify if Lucius can use commanding presence more than once on the same model? Many thanks in advance.
  18. As in topic? How do you use him in Neverborn? I saw him with riflemans and thralls in Guild, but that may not work here. I was thinking about some models from Titania Box and Fae models (mostly minions). Have anyone tested that? Thanks in advance for all advices
  19. Hi all, Been a while since I invested in a crew box and was thinking about Lucius after hearing some good things post-errata. Wondering if anyone here has found any particular models or combos that work well with him? I've noticed on the other threads some of the Fae models have had interesting results. I've already got: - Pandora's box (Favourite dumb joke in this game) -Lynch's box -Lilith's box -Graves, Teddy, Nekima, Weaver, Beckoners, Waldgiest, Madnesses, Depleted, Doppelganger, Iggy Not looking to power play or get the most efficient combos per se, ju
  20. I'm starting to finish painting a bunch of my nephilim and would like to try them out. I have a couple of lists that I'm thinking of running in an advantageous pool like headhunter with dig their graves or mark for death. List one is a lot more aggressive, the second one has more activations but less credible threats. When the strat and schemes want you to kill anyway growing shouldn't feel like a third scheme but aomething that just happens. List two kind of lacks teeth but can single out enemy models and trigger pounces en masse. If they get to your tots you can grow their buddies
  21. I've just come back to Malifaux after a long time and am catching up on some of the changes. I've seen a few people talking about Lucius' ability to heal himself but I can't find where he gets this ability. One person in the pointed to Issue Command's 'watching closely' trigger but "the target heals 2 damage" to me reads as healing the minion Lucius has targeted rather than himself (Link to that thread at bottom). If this is the case, where does he get his healing? P.S. because I don't want to make a whole separate thread about this, is there any way to access the schemes/strategies rele
  22. I'm brand new at Malifaux (learned at Origins) and am thinking about building around Lucius. After the recent errata, can folks with more experience a solid 50ss build? I'm not asking folks to do my work for me, but the choices in this game are sort of overwhelming for a new player! I need some focus from folks who have been playing for a bit! Thanks!
  23. So, I'm planning on adding lucius to my neverborn options and I have a couple of questions I'd love to get a response to. Mostly it's what guild models are worth bringing. Austringers: I can't figure out how good they are in a neverborn crew. On one hand they seem kinda awesome, on the the other I don't really need the boost to scheme running their (2) action gives and range 12" isn't that impressive. Emissary: I haven't really heard anyone mention the emissary with lucius, which I find kinda odd. His summoning alone seems to be worth it, also his hungry land could be really g
  24. With some masters, all their upgrades seem amazing and you can't pick 3. With Lucius, I ended up taking none in a game last night and didn't miss them. Talking through Lucius' upgrades mainly to try and organise my own thoughts but also keen to hear other opinions. Starting with his personal ones. - Suprisingly Loyal. An obvious take if you want some sweet mimic action. The defensive trigger is at least achievable now but still not great. Likely to be swapped out via Terracotta Warrior if taken. - Secret Assets. Nice but expensive, both in purchasing and use. But more imp
