  1. Hey y'all, I made a template for diy piano markers, and figured I'd share it with you nice folks. My intention was that they've be used with plasticard. But I decided to do a mock up with layered cardstock and it came out pretty okay. Last pic is the mock up using 4 layers of cardstock versus an MDF piano marker. Let me know what you guys think.

  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.

  3. Had a question come up. My Night Terror, flying model, was standing next to an enemy Explosive marker. Zipp runs over next to the marker. Zipp's melee 2", (it cannot target flying models)covering all sides of the marker. Does Zipp prevent the Night Terror, who is not within his own 1" reach of Zipp, from picking up the Explosive marker as the Night Terror is flying? We agreed, Yes Zipp prevents this action, for fairness of play, but I was curious what others think.
  4. Hi ! I want to start zipp, he looks very fun ! i usually play against guilds crew, vik crew or raspi. Which are all pretty killy. Do you have any tips ? do you prefer zipp in outcast or bayou ?? What are the differences ? I don’t know very well bayou so it’s a bit hard to figure that out
  5. Posting on behalf of a friend learning the ropes with his Bayou crews, who needs perhaps a bit of guidance. I play Neverborn, Dreamer, Titania, Nekima, Pandora and Lucius to date. So far he plays Wong and Zipp. In 2e zipp was a terror unto himself, murdering Dreamer from out of nowhere, using first mate to deny pretty well any schemes involving markers, and generally performing well. So far in m3e however things haven't been so good for the gremlins. Any and all advice on these match-ups, fighting Neverborn generally, or even just playing Zipp or Wong (especially Wong) would help a lot. I think probably the biggest problem he has so far is getting his crew murdered by the end of turn 2, something that I hope should be avoidable?
  6. Thought I'd write out a "crunchier" bat-rep from the tournament I went to in Des Moines last weekend! I finished top of Faction over zero other Guild players! Round One: 5-3 loss running Nellie into Shenlong on Corrupted Idols, Corner Deployment. Vendetta, Power Ritual, Take Prisoner, Assassinate, Outflank. Board had fairly wide open spaces. My list: (I took Outflank and Power Ritual) Nellie w/LLC P. Press Alison Dade Field Reporter Mounted Guard The Jury Undercover Reporter False Witness His List: (He took Outflank and Power Ritual as well, I believe) Shenlong w/Masked Agent Aspiring Student Aspiring Student Wandering River Monk Wandering River Monk Low River monk Samurai w/Trained Ninja Samurai w/Trained Ninja Sensei Yu Round One: My plan was to send Nellie one way with the Mounted Guard, and Alison and the Field Reporter to the other corner. I doubled up on Outflank and Power Ritual, and felt I could beat my opponent to the corners with Reporter speed and the Mounted Guard. I wound up deployed with the idol token on the Alison/Reporter side instead of Nellie, and adjusted my plan to have the Mounted Guard, Printing Press, and Nellie chip away at a Samurai (he deployed them both centrally to my deployment zone to take potshots) -- I think this was a game-defining waste of AP by me, but at the time I wanted to clear it so Nellie could have a line on potential idols through the central three drop points. His round one was a big Shenlong power-up followed by that crazy 21" charge into my Mounted Guard (again, I should have just moved it a full 19" to the corner, but instead took a potshot at the activated samurai, tempted by my own Pursue bonus!). My Undercover Reporter replaced his flanking monk running towards the opposite corner, setting him back a turn's worth of AP. Round Two: I scored 3-0 on him: the second idol landed by the first and I tossed one over as Alison and the Undercover Reporter had my Field Reporter interact to drop a marker. He wasn't able to bring enough force in to remove or contest that corner. Meanwhile, on the opposite side I had my Mounted Guard run in to drop a power ritual marker for the following round, and Shenlong came in and killed it -- critically misplaying by finishing it with a kick instead of the anti-demise Dragon's power, so I was able to "gotcha!" him by replacing into a Guard Patrol that counted as my outflank point. Nellie wasted more time stuck with the Samurai because I still wanted a line on the center. Round Three: he won initiative and was finally getting monks to bear on the Field Reporter/Undercover Reporter corner. He was able to tie up Alison finish off my Field Reporter, and score an idol. Shenlong handily cleared my guard patrol and stood defending that corner. He scored 3-0 on me this round on Outflank and (I believe) Power Ritual. Our game tipped into Round Four with about 10-15 minutes left. I hustled towards the corners and nearly kept Alison up for Outflank and Power Ritual, but he was able to kill Alison on one corner and then used Four-Winds-Punch into my Black Joker to move Nellie's marker and flip it to Ten Thunders (actually he just moved Nellie and dropped it; we post-gamed that and realized LLC would have stopped the movement, but he still could have simply flipped it's alignment in the corner. He scored Outflank and the Strat to end 5-3. Match Two: I ran Lady Justice into Jack Daw in Reckoning, taking Dig Their Graves and Power Ritual. I won 5-1. This game was pretty methodically a matter of applying the Lady J toolbox to an undead melee crew. I brought 2 exorcists, Judge, Jury, and Lone Marshal. He brought a handful of hanged, guilty, dead outlaw, and Montressor. The real defining feature here was that we were in Flank deployment and my zone literally had an elevated platform with a ramp up to it. I put the exorcists, Jury, steward and Lady J up there and put the Judge and Lone Marshal on another flank. The Lone Marhsal charged out and took a run-and-gun shot on his way to round 2 Power Ritual. My (significant) totem stayed in my back corner for the second power ritual point, and in round 3 the Marshal, totem, and Lady J with her leap scored that. Round 2 Lady J set up the Reckoning and Dig Their Graves point by leaping in, dropping a marker (2" engagement advantage) and dealing most of the damage required: an exorcist finished up the kill and the point for strat and scheme. The Judge harried his sidelines and dropped a bunch of damage into Montressor, who I killed Round 3 (size 3 model is VERY visible to ranged attacks). He dogpiled the Judge in rounds 2 and 3 and got his point from Reckoning -- even that was a close thing. If we'd had more time, I had a pretty clear field round 3 to finish up Dig, even by finishing off my own models that his Drowned had spammed some damage onto with a Red Joker blast. Match Three: I ran Nellie into Zipp on Wedge Plant Explosives. Schemes were Deliver a Message, Claim Jump, Detonate Charges, Take Prisoner, Hold Up their Forces My list: (I took Detonate Charges and Claim Jump on my Investigator, hoping to get some good synergy going in the middle by having the False Witness drop multiple scheme markers while the Investivator's bubble pushed people away.) Nellie (bomb) P. Press Field Reporter (bomb) Alison Dade (bomb, bomb) The Jury Investigator False Witness Undercover Reporter Guild Hound (bomb) His list: (He took Deliver a Message (misplay!) and Take Prisoner on the Investigator ... stopping my Claim Jump hopes!) Captain Zipp Earl Burns (bomb) The First Mate (bomb) Pigapult Bayou Gator (bomb) w/ 12 cups coffee Taxidermist w/ Inferiority Complex (bomb) Taxidermist w/ Inferiority Complex Flying Piglet (bomb?) I had a rough deployment here, with a patch of spikes adjacent to the front of one side of the wedge. It bunched me up a bit. I may have his bombs wrong. Round One he opened with Zipp and dropped 2-3 pianos along my remaining open flank, really bottlenecking me. It scattered a bunch of damage and I mostly took it, since a concerted attack was going to finish my Guild Hound or False Witness anyway. A handful of models simply made their saves because my hand was trash. My opponent seemed frustrated that I held so many cards, and told me post-game he was worried I'd be able to win real duels later in the round from that. Alison bolted free and tied up Earl Burns, clipping him early round 2 and denying one bomb. The Undercover Reporter activated late to send the caffeinated Bayou Gator home, so he lost one round's worth of upgrade movement. The Pigapult launched a Taxidermist into my backfield to cut up my False Witness and I just gave up on him and pushed everyone else forward. Round Two was a chaotic mess in the middle. I kept trying to clear ground for Claim Jump with marker dropping and Nellie-mispositioning; he kept shoving models back at the figure to score Take Prisoner. At one point he tried to Deliver a Message to Nellie, only to have me point out the Exclusive Interview problem. I felt bad about the Gotcha! but it hadn't occurred to me to explain it pre-game -- I'm really new and I'm used to everyone else knowing more than me, and it hadn't occurred to me that he wouldn't know the mechanics there. I had simply chosen Nellie to foreclose one of his choices. I scored the strat easily, and he was able to get a marker down as well. By round Three he'd torn my force up pretty well. Alison was able to score me strat points and I got off a detonate charges with Nellie by interacting through Don't Mind Me and forcing one of his models to drop the other token for it. He scored Take Prisoner on the Investigator and denied my Claim Jump. Round Four we were pressed for time, leading to us each scoring the strat. He took the win at 5-4 or 5-3, I honestly can't remember which, but I think it must have been 4 because I was able to get strat points with Alison consistently and did pull off detonate once. He got three strat points and both Take Prisoner points -- the second one he dogpiled models onto the Investigator and blocked a good amount of space with a piano to prevent any escape lanes. These were good games and I think Guild has play, for sure. I probably need to bring a bit more firepower or tarpitting into my Nellie crews, and Lady J really had a chance to shine when everything went her way (matchup, terrain, schemes). Meanwhile, I'm on the player learning curve trying to catch up to all you guys who have been playing for years -- these were my 6th, 7th, and 8th games of Malifaux skirmish!
  7. Hey all!! I have a list I am planning on trying out in a game tonight but i would love some feedback for it! The general idea is its built to utterly shut down and limit your oponents ability to score VP while keeping you mobile enough to achieve your own goals. Current line up is Zipp: - Rambaling Diatribe - The Gift of the Gab - Dirty Cheater Fingers: - Dirty Cheater First Mate: - Treasure Map - Where the Captain Can't See Iron Skeeter -Poorly Handeled Explosives Iron Skeeter - Airship Spotlight Gremlin Crier Gremlin Crier Zipp Fingers and The First mate do what they do best. Disrupt the enemy and deny VP. The Skeeters carry the Criers around dropping markers for you, and if necessary act as an express delivery system for the Criers Aura during key turns to shut models scoring and conditions. When your Criers die then the ideal move is to use PHE on the resulting Bayou to drop it as a bomb in the enemy. Or just use the bayou as a free scheme runner or distraction peace. Overall it would just be built to focus on the objectives and mess with the opponent
  8. As the title says, I am getting a friend into the game and he thinks Zipp looks the coolest and therefore wants to use him. I've got about $65 to spend on getting him the box and maybe 1-2 things to help augment that box. I don't play Gremlins (Neverborn is where I live) and have no clue what kind of things would be worthwhile getting to help him out. Any help is greatly appreciated, Thanks!
  9. Hello! This thread will serve as a place for me to post battle reports so I don't end up flooding the board with them. As the title suggests, the focus of this thread will be on my Outcast games with Parker Barrows, and a little Freikorp, Viktorias or whatever else I feel like playing on the side. This OP will be updated with links to each Battle Report as I complete them. Any suggestions, thoughts, or comments are welcome!

  10. I will attempt to explain my question as succinctly as possible, if you would like more clarification or reasoning behind my current interpretation, please ask. Zipp's ability "up we go" is worded: "Place the target anywhere within 5" of its current position, not in terrain". Originally I did not think this was confusing, until discussing Enclosed terrain features. Enclosed features specifically reference things being inside of them. What I would like to know, is the "IN" in Zipp's ability, referencing this, so that you cannot put someone inside of enclosed terrain (which would be incredibly unfair, and I completely agree with). OR do they mean "ON OR IN" as in, he cannot place you on top of or inside of any terrain feature. As I read it, it appears to function that he can place models "ON" terrain (or on top of terrain, as it were, such as moving a friendly model onto a roof), but he cannot place models "INSIDE" of terrain features. (this also fits the flavor of him carrying and dropping you, he wouldn't drop someone on the ground floor of a 3 story building, you'd get dropped on the roof, it's also far too friendly for a crazy gremlin pirate to care what he drops you on top of) I believe my RAW interpretation to be correct, but I really would like to make sure, as it is confusing. I am not interested in Rules as intended Interpretations, I have already decided to err on the side of caution with this, but would like some kind of official ruling one way or another, and was unsure where else to ask this.
  11. I started Gremlins a week ago or so (I own Brewie, Zipp and Som'er), and now with my mates we're playing using the GG18. I'll be playing Gremlins, my opponent Arcanists. We've generated randomly the Encouter: SYMBOLS OF AUTHORITY; Standard Deployment - Punish The Weak - Search The Ruins - Set Up - Inescapable Trap - Dig Their Graves Right now, I'm more headed towards Brewmaster, 'cause I want to test him in Faction as I always used him as 10T, but Zipp can be the right choice too, or Som'er. The reasoning behind the BMaster in this setup is 'cause I can place the Symbols relatively close to each other, and oblige my opponent to come at me and stay inside my bubbles. For Punish The Weak, I think that I can go for a killy crew, but I need Interacts for the Strategy and the other Schemes. Maybe Fingers + Burt + Golem? First Mate to push enemies around? What do you suggest guys?
  12. Hey all. Just had a game against Zipp using Reva. It did not go well... Before I get into it, here's the rough breakdown: 50ss, Headhunter, scheme pool - claim jump, undercover entourage, leave your mark, dig their graves, mark for death. My crew: Reva (guises of death, litany of the fallen, maniacal laugh), Toshiro (command the graves), Bete Noire (my little helper), Forgotten Marshall, 2x Shieldbearer, 2x Crooligan. Schemes: Claim jump, leave your mark His crew (from memory): Zipp, Earl Burns, Fingers, The First Mate, Ronin, Jetpack LaCroix girl (?), 2x Iron Skeeter. Schemes: Claim jump, undercover entourage. Now I'm pretty new to Malifaux and it's only my second game with Reva. My positioning wasn't great, I had no idea what his crew could do and my luck was abysmal, both in hand draw and flipping (I hit an Iron Skeeter four times with Reva and failed to wound it once for example). My game plan was using the crooligans for claim jumping (which admittedly I stupidly set up on opposite sides of the board, completely exposed) while using Reva's early corpse candle through guises to get into his back field early with Bete, then tandeming in the Forgotten Marshall for leave your mark/disruption/killing, while the Toshiro/Shieldbearer bubble/Reva wrecked face for headhunter. I quit end of turn four, had we played it out to the end I would have lost like 10-3. I could not get anywhere near his crew. Their mobility was crazy and if I did manage to get into melee, he just bounced away. I left my crooligans out to dry to be honest but I didn't know they could get hunted down so quickly and they died after dropping one scheme marker between them (which Fingers then got rid of). Bete did nothing except die before she could do anything (she got into melee twice; first being gibbed by the ronin, the second pushed away and slowed by The First Mate who then leapt to the other side of a building, just to add insult to injury). The Forgotten Marshall managed to score twice but aside from a few ineffective shots did nothing. Reva was effectively sidelined by the threat of having pianos dropped on her. Fingers scored about 7vp on his own before tying up half my crew by getting into engagement with them and going double defensive and bouncing away if anything did get through. It was a horror show. What could I have done?
  13. Well the Wong and Zipp Crews have arrived along with Mctavish. Have also ordered Creative Taxidermy. Had a quick look inside the boxes and Damn, they look so delicate. Going to be so much fun assembling them... May have to figure a way to pin some of them to strengthen somewhat, especially the Lightening Bugs... Any advice welcomed...
  14. Hey guys, A quick question on the piano dropping ability (I searched the forum but couldn't find it this had been answered, apologies if it had). The card says ignores line of sight, but not cover. So if I'm standing on one side of a height 5 building and my target is in the open but on the other side of the building what happens, would he count as in cover? Many thanks in advance, James.
  15. Hey guys, I've been playing for a little while using wong and fancied a second gremlin master to play. How does zipp do and what sort of models are worth adding to his crew box set? Any help would be greatly appreciated, James.

    Zipp's ship

    So, I've been trying to know more about Zipp's airship. All the information I could find about it is that it was an experimental airship stolen by Zipp, that he named it Infamy, and that Earl Burns was the lead engineer of it before he got kidnapped. This leaves sooo many questions! Who was it stolen from? What is the size of it? What size is zipp's regular crew? How many pianos can you fit in it? Etc. Can you guys help me find more sources of information about it? Like malifaux books, through the breach books or official podcasts. Thanks!
  17. Zipp's 'Up We Go!' attack action reads: Place the target anywhere within 5" of its current position, not in terrain. My understanding of the word 'place' is that you ignore intervening terrain and models. Is this correct? More importantly, can this attack be used to 'place' the target model on top of a building or is that considered 'in terrain'? Is the 5" range of this effect measured strictly from a bird's eye view or would any change in height be included in the 5" range? In my imagination, Zipp is just grabbing somebody, jetting up into the sky and either dropping the poor sap or speeding back to the ground to suplex them into the dirt. But I'm not sure if that accurately depicts how the action functions within the context of the rules. In any event, my goal would be to dump the target on top of a building, or a stash marker, or some other piece of terrain and then force them to sit there or take falling damage to get back into the fight.
  18. Hello all. I chose Ten thunders as my first faction, but loved the Sky Pirates box when I saw the preview. Finally decided to purchase and paint it. I will of course need to add more gremlin buddies to go with Zipp and his Sky Pirates
  19. Hello all, I was Theory-Faux'ing and playing around with Nellie and Brutal Emissary combos and as good as the generic conflux upgrade is, many of the emissaries generic conflux upgrades are far inferior to master-specific upgrades not including all the synergy the specific upgrades offer. I wonder if there were any rumors of wave 4 upgrades on the horizon. Better yet, to make this post more fun, what would you craft if you could design the wave 4 conflux upgrade? I’d love to hear clever ideas that are not too broken. The wonderful thing about the master-specific upgrades is that they synergies yet are not broken. Wyrd didn’t want to relive the brokenness of the campaign upgrades again and did a great job imo. I would love to hear ideas that are fun but not OP, any ideas?
  20. Hi all! I'm returning to Malifaux after a three year sabbatical on the Other Side. There's a Fast Grow League (2015 packet) kicking off in a few weeks at the FLGS, and my wife and I have already signed up. In the past, I've always been a Guild toady (Sonnia & Hopkins are my heroes!), but the Gremlins are just too much fun to stay away from! That said, I've never run Gremlins outside of manning demos, so I could use some advice from fellow bayou brethren! Here's what I have access to: Wong (Explosive Solutions): fully painted Zipp (The Sky Pirates): un-assembled I also have just about all the Guild stuff, and nearly all the crews from the other factions. Many of them are older metal kits (we're in the process of updating). All that said, what do you folks recommend for additions? The league grows weekly: 26ss/30ss/40ss/50ss. The first two weeks are pretty easy-peasy (boxed crew plus upgrades), but the following two weeks get a bit tougher. I thought I'd ask early as I'm a terrible stickler for having models painted before playing with them. Thanks in advance!!!
  21. Let me state that I am not a gremlin player and this is coming from another faction looking in. A friend of mine that I played this weekend asked me to make a full 50 stone list for Zipp. Of which I have thought of 2, one of which is just rounding out another list I helped him with about 3 weeks ago where I left 15 points out of 50 off as play room. I will only be using models that have at least had prereleases, so no swine-cursed. Also most of the cost calculations are from memory, so I might be off by a stone or 2, so I am aiming for a full catch to cover some errors and I am sure you all will find any I make. Also can we post the cost of each model, I can not remember if Wyrd has a problem with that or not, I think not but I will be carful and add them later. First one, a mobility and survival focus list which is for Claim Jump, Interference and scheming. Zipp with No Quarter and Rambling Diatribe with a catch of 7. Earl Burns Rami with Hide in the Mud Sparks with Hide in the Mud Iron Skeeter with Poorly Handled Explosives Iron Skeeter with Hovering Airship 2 Survivors Rooster Rider Model number: 9 In this list you devide your forces into multible 1 to 2 man teams and use the high mobility of the Iron Skeeter and push effects of Zipp to separate and claim what you need. Earl and Sparks can play supportive roles where one heals a construct and the other gives them fast. Rami is there to provide support sniping and shape how your enemies react. Survivors have great survivability for their points cost with even most 7 stone models needing 3 hits to kill them. The Rooster Rider is free to go reckless and act on his own, I could see replacing or using the Rooster Rider range model because you have so much blitzing down field already. The next one focus on getting in there and killing key models. Zipp with The Gift of Gab and Rambling Diatribe with a catch of 7 Burt Jebsen with Dirty Cheater Francois LaCroix with Dirty Cheater Iron Skeeter with Poorly Handled Explosives Iron Skeeter with Hovering Airship Bayou Gremlin Merris LaCroix Whiskey Golem with his new 0 stone upgrade Model number: 8 This is a hard hitting list uses the Iron Skeeter as a taxi system to deliver Burt and Francois into their effective ranges for charging or shooting. The Whiskey Golem can keep up with this at a speed of 6 and nimble but with his new upgrade he can keep healing himself. Zipp can fly into the center and because of the Gift of Gab really cost your enemy there hands if they want to do prevention flips. Merris and the Bayou Gremlin can run schemes while your enemy is reacting to this new 4 man death team. The key is getting there about the same time to support each other and focusing on one or two important models, preferably ones which can use stones. When your enemy runs out of card you can have the run of them for the turn. I could also see taking making room for Trixiebelle or replacing the Whiskey Golem with Gracie. I am not as much a fan of this list as I feel other gremlin masters can do this beater. In both list the Iron Skeeters start as a taxi system and then are free to do whatever you need if they live after dropping off there cargo. If I where to fues the to I take the first one and try to make room for the Whiskey Golem and possibly Merris LaCroix but that would look something like this: Zipp with No Quarter and Rambling Diatribe with a catch of 6. Rami with Hide in the Mud Sparks Iron Skeeter with Poorly Handled Explosives Iron Skeeter with Hovering Airship Survivors Whiskey Golem with his new 0 stone upgrade Merris LaCroix Model number: 8 Note a fast Whiskey Golem can be a thing, and it already has nimble.... Does this count as a third list, it is really just done on the fly lol.

At stake, a small graveyard, long abandoned and haunted by a solemn statue at its heart - and buried in one of those graves? A small fortune of soulstones hidden awayin the time of the First Breach. Someone cue the dramatic music on the Aethervox.... --- At home in the North Hills, the Barrows Gang moved to claim the cemetery for themselves, seizing the Initiative and Scouting the Field to take up advanced positions in the wooded rubble surrounding the small burial ground. The wandering balladeer named Sue moved forward, hat tipped low.... MEANWHILE ABOARD THE AIRSHIP INFAMY! Captain Zipp and his crew came in for a landing, not yet aware they were not alone. Rocketing downward to the cemetery, he was caught in an ambush by 'Bushwhacker Bonnie" Clyde, the ruthless robber diving out of concealment in the woods and taking a practiced shot at the green menace before diving back into cover; as one of the Iron Skeeters flew in to support their Captain, "Scarface Sally" Torres joined her sister-in-arms, rolling out of the treeline and pausing only to fire a skillful shot at Zipp. As another Skeeter swooped down from the sky, "Fan the Hammer" Fillion focused and fired on it, and Parker Barrows decided enough was enough - twirling his Colliers he unleashed a hail of bullets into the air to cover his people from any attacks by these sky pirates. The rest of the two now-warring gangs pushed forward, the First Mate leaping and scurrying to croak menacingly but fruitlessly at the lurking bandits and the far-less-mobile gremlins and outcasts loping forward at a slower pace. The small graveyard soon became a warzone. Zipp seized Bonnie and rocketed her up into the sky, throwing her out of the cemetery's walls to land with a vicious thud, then opened fire wildly to no avail; Sue took aim and fired a telling shot that wounded the Sky Pirate captain and made him realize that he may have let his ego overwhelm his common sense - but by then he was hemmed in. Parker Barrows grinned and took aim at the scrap between Zipp, Bonnie, and one of the three Skeeters, Bonnie ducking as her boss's bullets struck home , before quickly sliding out of the knot of opponents at the graveyards' center. Parker fired again, only grazing one of the Skeeters but severing a satchel strap and causing a very dangerous bit of payload to fall to the ground... right in time for Parker to improvise as only he could and take aim at the crate of explosives... a loud, thunderous explosion rocked the cemetery, wounding Zipp yet again but causing two of his Skeeters to go up in explosions of fire and scrap. The Bandidos and the Bayou Gremlins traded volleys and increasingly-serious injuries and the First Mate dove in to duel with both Johan and Big Jake; the surviving Skeeter dueled in close-quarters with Mad Dog Brackett on the outskirts; Sue focused and fired at Zipp but the canny Captain evaded and rocketed away to seek the solace of slung slop. Healed and rallying, Zipp seized the initiative and flew back into battle, commanding the crew to Drop the Pianos in a bombastic barrage - but lacking pianos, they instead hurled a great chest of scrip overboard to the Captain's horror - and soon to Parker's as the heavy payroll chest crashed crushingly down upon him with the force of furious, bloody-red Fate. Groaning and taking only small solace in the fistful of scrip he shoved into his pockets as he rose to pursue, Parker brought another dropped charge of dynamite to a ballistic climax - but this time for naught. The First Mate was severely struck by Johan's hammer and soon leapt away to safety . Drunk and despondent, Doc Mitchell pulled a flintlock to shoot at the fleeing, nearly-dead Zipp.. but Parker gunned the old man down for his temerity. With Mad Dog still struggling, Johan charged forward and sunders the last Skeeter with a severe strike of his hammer, the machine falling to earth and erupting, leaving both the Barrows Gang members smoldering as they walked away with no care for the explosion behind them. Unfortunately for Zipp, he finds out the Man has Come Around, and Sue cuts him down. Earl lashes out at Parker and bashes at the outlawbrusingly with his wrench before being gunned down for his trouble, and soon the stump-legged sharpshooter loses a duel to a badly-battered Bonnie Clyde and the First Mate becomes material for a new pair of boots at the buckshot of Mad Dog's shotgun. Scarface Sally shoots down the banjo-bashing lunatic El Kabong, and as the smoke clears it leaves only one green soul left standing. Some are born to greatness, some achieve greatness...and some have greatness forced upon them.... some, such as the humble slop-hauler Beauregard Buckets. As the Bandits drew in, Buckets steeled his resolve in the face of a battle already plainly lost. The bandits shot at him, hemmed in his escape and threw dynamite at his feet with the demand to put his hands in the air! Facing the end, Beauregard Buckets did the only thing he could as the charges exploded athis feet and he deftly dodged death: He hurled scalding, noxious slop at his tormenters' leader... and the heat and fumes and filth laid low not only the battered Parker Barrows but Bonnie Clyde behind him. Cursing as their Boss fell to flung foulness, the Bandits opened fire with all they had - but Fate favored Beauregard Buckets - the Gremlin Who Survived. He may have lost the battle, and his new employer, and a pound or two of flesh besides... but he had a story to tell, and though swift use of Stones would save Parker Barrows and Bonnie Clyde, neither they nor any of the other Barrows Gang would ever forget that day , the day the Boss was bested by Beauregard Buckets! --- Scorecard!

  23. Well, our "weird" master came out...what do you think? It's surely a very, very strange model...I don't know about it... It can mess up a lot with enemy position and it's extremely mobile. Damage is quite low for a Gremlin master...or model generally. ...and it's insignificant...why? And not chatty, but this new mechanics which is weaker. Then the (0) action which can't be used to put model into an engagement - if opponent doesn't want. My first thoughts are negative...but we'll see with its box and on the field!
  24. Typing is arduous, so I thought I'd share my thoughts on the new master releases in video format. Titania - Asami Tanaka - Zipp - Parker Barrows - Nellie Cochrane - Sandeep Desai - Reva -
