  1. Hi all, I've recently picked up the Titania box and after looking at her 'The Queens Champion' upgrade, I have been having a look at some mercenaries that would be good targets for this. With the new 'always' scheme making you drop two scheme markers a turn on the centre line, I think having something with blasts/long range would be really good here as the upgrade drops a scheme marker with anything that is damaged by the attack. My picks so far include: - A Trapper. The long range would help him quickly pick off something small to get the upgrade. He would then be able to spend the rest of the game with armour 2, double positive to hit and would be hopefully be able to target enemies near the centreline to drop markers. - Lazarus. Similar to the above except with blasts. This would allow me to drop several markers if i'm able to damage a group of enemy models. He has a good range so I could keep him back whilst Titania runs in the middle. He would also become armour 3 so would be super hard to put down, especially considering most players don't expect armour in Neverborn. - Hannah. The extra card in hand is always nice and I will always take the P.magic which allows me more from my control hand. Again the blasts would be nice but the only issue here is making sure that she is the first to kill an enemy. Armour 2 with the positive is always a bonus. The great thing about the above is that they are all cheaper than Nekima and with Hannah I could attach Malifaux Provides to heal her back up. Thoughts? Also, are there any others that you've considered for the Queen's champion?
  2. First time post from a new player. I have lucked my way into a decent Neverborn army, featuring Collodi, Pandora, Titania and Lilith (which is good, because I am not that interested in Zoraida, Lynch or Lucius). I will eventually pick up The Dreamer as well, but I feel like I have a good starting point. My question to the Neverborn masses is what Mercenaries should I be looking for? From skulking in the forums already, I know of Lazarus, Freikorps Trapper and Envy off the top of my head, but want to know what other Mercenary models you would suggest. Help me purge the humans off of our land.
  3. So, I have been on a scifi kick for a while, and haven't played in a bit. I am mostly a Guild guy but Colette, well she has always been my favorite and I plan on some practice with her for a bit. Over the holidays, one of my friends grabbed the Crossroads seven, and split it among his faux friends. Like I said, I usually guild, so I got greed. But she looks like a decent hitter for Colette. Steady damage and gaining and killing soulstones seems helpful and any band member is a bit thematic. Has anyone monkeyed with greed and Colette?
  4. Hey all, Returning to malifaux this evening after several months of not playing and relocating to the hills of Sheffield. Going to stick with Von Schill for the next few weeks and was wondering if anyone has advise on interesting builds or improvements to my current approach below. The following is a pretty straight-forward build making use of Von Schill's vamped up 'hard to kill' aura and making opponents have to sink a lot of AP into models to put them down (...bubble-permitting). Further I may swap out hard and relentless for tally sheet depending on the opposing faction choice. The trapper may also be swapped for another Freikorpsmann/void wretch depending on the need for scheme runners. Von Schill, Hard and relentless (1), survivalist (1), the shirt comes off (1) Steam Trunk (3) Freikorpsmann (5) Freikorpsmann (5) Freikorpsmann Trapper (6) Freikorpsmann Librarian (7) Johan (6) Lazarus (10) total = 45ss Possible swap outs/sideboard. Taelor, I pay better (1) Rusty Alyce, I pay better (1), Tally sheet (1). Bishop, Oathkeeper (1) Hans, tally sheet (1) Ashes and Dust Any fun builds people have come up with would be welcome!
  5. Here are a couple pics of my Steam Trunk: Note: The base isn't finalized yet, because I'll base my entire crew at the same time. Comments, questions and critiques are welcome!
  6. Correct me if I'm wrong, but can't mercenary masters join any faction as if they were mercenaries? I ask because it seems like Viktorias' 'For Money' ability has become completely useless since in V2 they have the mercenary type. In fact you would be giving up 5 soul stones for no benifit as the Viktorias don't give you the ability to hire outcast mercs at no additional cost (since you are still limited to one controlling faction) and they don't remove the limit on having only two mercenaries, something Von Schill does. The only use I could possibly see for this ability is if masters hired as mercenaries are considered to count towards the number of mercenaries you can play with a force, so in effect you would be paying 5 soulstones to be able to hire 2 additional mercs that still have an increased soulstone cost. Yay. For 17 soulstones I can get the viks and two ronin...17 soulstones. Or for 6 I can get the Viks as mercenaries and a ronin since the Viks only count as one model towards the mercenary limit. Am I wrong here, or are Masters with the Mercenary trait no longer hireable outside of their faction normally making this ability relevant, because this seems like a huge waste.
  7. Here's my current group of mercenaries which is just the Viktorias boxset but I will be getting Hans, Convict Gunslinger and the Ronin 3 pack soon enough. http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v73/Animal_Delos/Malifaux/?action=view&current=Mercenaries.jpg http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v73/Animal_Delos/Malifaux/?action=view&current=Bishop.jpg http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v73/Animal_Delos/Malifaux/?action=view&current=Johan.jpg http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v73/Animal_Delos/Malifaux/?action=view&current=Taelor.jpg http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v73/Animal_Delos/Malifaux/?action=view&current=Viktorias.jpg http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v73/Animal_Delos/Malifaux/?action=view&current=Viktoria1.jpg http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v73/Animal_Delos/Malifaux/?action=view&current=Viktoria2.jpg Once again comments and such appreciated.
