Collodi | Wicked Dolls, Bunraku and Stitcheds


Recommended Posts


So, Collodi has finally been added to my arsenal - completing my collection of all the Neverborn masters. 

I've played a number of games with the master of puppets, and I've found myself relying on the staple Illuminated. This isn't a bad thing, as there isn't a bad thing about the Illuminated, but I already run them in my Lynch and Lucius crews. So, I'm looking to not use them as much in a third crew. Also, I'd like to run quite a themed playlist. So, I'd like to hear your thoughts on my ideas, and of course, your suggestions. 


Stitched Together

These guys are great, for their obvious reasons with Collodi (getting those positives etc. from Collodi's My Will, etc.). But, with Vasilisa, a pair of them become quite a mobile little death unit with the combination of Twist, A Little Drink A Little Water and Obey. Incredibly maneuverable without having to use their own AP to move, means they can focus on being nasty.


But what about Bunraku and Wicked Dolls? 


Wicked Dolls

I can see the synergy with Wicked Dolls - again using the control shenanigans of Collodi and Vasilisa to pump out extra activations on the little puppets - but it seems you need at least three to make them impactful? Getting the Crow on Over The Needle could be really useful. There All Sewed Up also adds extra synergy for being controlled by Collodi and Vasilisa outside of their activations. Accomplice also lets you activate two of them consecutively if they'e in melee range, to stack up those Poison counts. 



They have Armour, high defence, auto DF trigger that debuffs Ml, they have Retract (nice for Personal Puppet). They can gain Focus with a (0), the Ml attack ain't bad, and like the Wicked Dolls give out Poison. They have Snatch, which is a great ranged attack, which allows you to draw in models into the puppet bubble, and if you get the trigger, you get the free strike. They're far more resilient than Wicked Dolls, but at the same time, could drop the model into range for the Wicked Dolls to go to town on it (so there is synergy there to). 


Looking forward to any thoughts, suggestions.
