  1. Hi all! Been putting in a lot of time into different crews both playing and theory, and I've decided to start writing up the crews I'm playing the most at the time. Here is the first one, the Mercenary crew which I feel has been a keyword that gets less talk in 3E although they have some great power plays. Keyword abilities- Battle Tempo- the main keyword ability, simple push of 2 inches every start phase. It lets an already fast crew move even faster, and really helps put pressure on for both scheming and combat early. It also is a good way to guaranteed disengage from unf
  2. Hello! I'm making this thread to document my games of Malifaux, 3rd Edition. This will be similar to my 2nd edition thread, which focused on Parker Barrows and Outcasts. I'll start this one on Outcasts and Bayou - and I expect Neverborn, Arcanists and Ten Thunders games to join the party eventually as well. Feedback is appreciated, as I hope taking these notes and sharing them will help make me a better player. Arcanists Rasputina/ December Rasputina vs. Dr. McMourning - 3/14/2020 - Corrupted Ley Lines - 7-3 - Win Bayou Wong/ Wizz-Bang Wong vs. Youko - 5
  3. Hello to the bayou, I'm new to the forums but I've been playing almost exclusively (Ramos looked too fun) gremlins since I started playing 2 years ago. While thinking about whether I should pick up Lazarus for wong, I had the idea of cranking him to 11 with Sparks. Since Sparks can give out a condition which adds 'construct' and Lazarus can copy construct actions, with the two of them together, we can copy any 1 action in the game! I might be wrong since I don't have a Lazarus card on me, but he can even copy masters. The idea I had was bigger hat then you off somer but I know there's way mor
  4. So... why would another faction be interested in using the Hog Whisperer as a mercenary, when they need a Pig model to be at all useful? The only Mercenary Pig I know of is Gracie, who is much better off with Burt Jebsen (or he's better off with her... whatever). In what situation would another faction find a use for a Hog Whisperer?
  5. Hey guys/gals. Been playing the viks for a long time now and I've really grown to love trappers and lazarus. Both are usually instrumental in my games. My style has typically been playing a gunline with the viks cleaning anything up that comes to engage it/running schemes. Crew normally looks like: Viks, Vanessa or Hanna, 2 trappers, Lazarus, Librarian, and Child. I'm interested in lilith and I think I could transfer this playstyle to her. My thoughts being - Better card managment, better control, slightly better scheme running at the cost of the viks amazing damage potential. I
  6. I was just wondering if people use the Torokage as Mercenaries - I've only ever seen them used either in 10 Thunders lists or in Outcast Last Blossom lists. I've no experience with them but when I inevitably get 10 Thunders (come on Wyrd! ) I'll get them but wondering if people use them as mercs and if so how/when?
  7. How do you guys go about deciding what figures to purchase? I'm guessing most people just buy everything in a faction which makes it easy, however especially for mercenaries or out of faction recruiting, its a bit more difficult to pick and choose (unless you blindly get them all). This especially becomes an issue for some of the mercenaries that I think could be awesome (such as the Freikorps Trapper) and I really want to try, but many are not singles and I'd rather not buy a whole box set for one figure. Since the cards / stats aren't openly publicized outside of getting the big r
  8. So, like all the Outcast players out there, I spent a lot of time marveling over Aionus this week. When I really got down to thinking about when I would hire him into a crew, however, my mind kept drifting over to the Guild side of things. What is everyone else's opinion on him? 13 stones is a pretty huge chunk to spend on a model, but it is a much smaller jump to go from 12 to 13 than it is to go from 6 to 7, and I certainly think he's worth 12. Unlike the Outcasts (outside of Tara, I suppose), we have a lot of really good, affordable sources of Slow. Clockwork Traps, the Guild Pathfinder, Si
  9. Recently I've been trying to use more Mercenaries with Lucius and maybe Perdita, specifically because how a friend of mine uses Collodi with the Freikorps trapper. In one particular game I wrecked face with Envy and Hans. Which I might add to my Lady J crew if I ever take her out again. What do you guys typically take from the Mercenary pool?
  10. there are more henchmen in the game and a few having the mercenary charecteristic. so in the campaign ruls it states that you hire a henchmen paying full price, and was wondering if a mercenary henchmen could lead the crew even though he/she is out of faction?also does this apply to normal games as well?
  11. From the album: My Crews

    My very first Malifaux crew!
  12. Burt Jebsen seems to be able to fit in a lot of crews. For example. Hamelin: Burts' Slippery ability can be used to just shove of attacks to nearby rats. Similar tactics can be used with Mindless Zombies in Ressers (so Nico too I guess). Viktorias, Raspy, Sonnia, Hamelin, Mei Feng, and any crew hiring Lazarus: all likes when models bunch up so they can get their Blasts to connect. Cracker jack Timing is tailored for that purpose. Just haven't heard of anyone using him in a out of faction crew. How come? Is he not worth paying 8ss for?
  13. Hey all, I am wondering how feasible McTavish is as a mercenary in Jack Daw's crew. I really want to try it but I want some second opinions before I begin to try it out. Here's my thoughts offhand: Dat Stench Tho: Penetrating Stench is really helpful in diverting opponents' attacks against Jack if McT is close by. Plus it keeps foes from getting too much more defensive than they already are, but that's not the primary thing I want McT for anyway. In a crew where Focus could bring down the Big Man with ease, I want Focus to not happen. Tormenting McT: Letting The Guilty or even Jack
  14. My understanding is that you can hire a model with the mercenary rule(if for example its in your own faction or you can hire it bacause of another rule) and you can hire a model as a mercenary and this is two diferent things, is this correct? An example would be, Zoraida, her Enthrall ability lets her hire any model with WP 4 or less regardless of faction. This can be a Desperate Mercenary for example, can she still hire two mercenarys thrue the Mercenary rule? Is this list legal? Zoraida Convict gunslinger (hired as a mercenary, is a Mercenary) Desperate mercenary (hired thrue E
