  1. Scalpel's time is now!

    Loved playing Scalpel since the nerf hammer was swung at the Morts. Rarely play Obulus, and those new "toys" are just what was needed for their gameplan.
  2. Exiled to the Peaceful Grave

    Not entirely sure if that's a Snake or an Old-God tendril or something like that.
  3. Veteran Hemlocke

    Wow, she will definitely make it into my team. Holy crap! Midnight offering was always one of the things I thought would be awesome to have, and Soul Seer just makes it so much better!
  4. vMinx card shown

    Hard to say, but she will replace at least Ulfr, if he ever made it to into any 10
  5. But wouldn't he ignore the allocation aswell?
  6. Morticians post rat catchers

    I know. There are some cases where I have more influence, but I have to leave the big guy at home and sacrifice a good option for an additional Influence. And then Farmers happened.
  7. Morticians post rat catchers

    I feel like the whole playerbase agrees that Ghast should just generate 2 Influence. That would also make the "Morticians generate more Influence than anyone else" at least a bit more true.
  8. Proxy catchers

    Haha, that's whyt I always did. Took a base and glued a piece of paper with their name on in... on it
  9. Salt ftw!

  10. Brewers Minor Guild - What will it be?

    On the other hand, they are known to have their hands in organized crime. I could imagine something around the lines of city guards, controling in's and out's of wares throughout the cities and getting rid of "unwanted an nosey" individuals that could interfer with their work. Some form of corrupt innerstate enforcement... people. Basically the Mafia in the uniforms of guards, lowlife politicians and executives.
  11. Farmer Errata has landed

    Pretty well done. The elongation of Threshers Playbook was a simple, but clever move. The KD dodge result is a little workaround I like. He pretty much always gets the momentous doge if he wants, combined with a KD, but at least it's not like he's going to kill half your team after he started turn 2 while the Farmer player attestates that that is how he should work and I should just work around. I haven't had any experience with Fallow, as some have said she still seems to be a powerhouse, but honestly every guild has some sort of powerhouse. Cosset, Boiler, Vitriol, Bolt. Those are models you cna't activate and go. It seems like Fallow is not that hard to take down and with the reduced range for Fork Off and generally reduced amount of Influence the Farmers now have access too, due to the fact that the core abilities now - finally, thank the Rules Team - cost something. It seems to me that Fallow will be more of a Grange character as well now, but I could be wrong. Overall I like the changes, especially the cheeky Corsair ones, cause that was dumb for reason. Now the only thing I have on my mind is Blackhearts monentous 1 damage double dodge, and I might play him again. But seriously, love it. Well done, guys.
  12. Steamforged plays Ratcatchers vs Union

    Fast forwarded a bit, Squeak apparently has tag along Miasma has a TAC of 5, has a GB Result on two which is called Interrupting Spores if I understood correctly. Enemy needs to choose: His models within 2" suffer 2 damage and bleed or 2 damage and poison. Apparently she also has a momentous GB up higher in her PLaybook.
  13. Scourge Review Video

    I could be too fast with my opinion, but he seems to be a model that stays on the backline until its time. Also seems to be a good ball carrier so far. Damn code of conduct, wish I could say more.
  14. Okay, in about three hours I am going to the club, and I thought I might play the Morts again (a bit spontaneous, I know ). Does any of you have any advise with Pelage and Skulk? Should I use both? Only one of them? With which model? I think my opponent will play Farmers. He likes them. Any idea? It doesn't need to be Farmers Captain specific, I expect to lose anyway. EDIT: This could be used as a general thread on how to use those guys anyway, so feel free to post general tips.
  15. Pelage

    Unfortunately, we didn't get anything as well so far. :/
  16. Casket Time + Influence --> game impact

    Don't forget if you have Knee Slider AND the Vengeance Token... Usually it is not super important who you put in the box, but you profit more if it is a model that generates more than 1 Influence. I had a game where I put a Mascot in the box because I lacked the 3 VP, but aside from that I go for 2/X models or even the Captain. Put Shark in the Box once in S2, it was awesome. Last game against the farmers where I used him I put Harrow in a box. Now it gets really sick if you put a Captain in the box and combine it with Man Marking.
  17. Harrow was engaged by vetGraves and she put Singled Out on him. He knew Scalpel would kill him for 2 points and then score a goal. He tried to walk away and completely forgot her damage, so she rolled her parting blow and did an additional 6 damage to the... I don't know, 15 or so she did to him after applying Singled Out. She's a beast against Male models. MVP means most valuable player. Edit: Oh also he chose Snared at the end of the activation, though there wasn't really a good choice for him at this point.
  18. I mean, that's what I said. Agreed. Though I prefer agression.
  19. Since the S3 changes to Obulus, which were required but in my opinion are a complete overshoot, I highly prioritize Scalpel. Her legendary helps a lot, she can redistribute Influence (which unfortunately didn't worko on tater, but meh, Def 5), her Heroic gives nice repositioning options really good against counterchargers in my experience, or to just get a ball carrier further up the pitch and out of range of enemy models. Her wake the dead is actually useful when you play Cosset and Pelage, because I have never had a use for it. Her damage is good and a momentous pus dodge on 3 is in my opinion one of the better results Morticians have alltogether. Obulus' Playbook is just useless in my opinion, at least with the TAC5. Though I guess Pelages easy Singled Out may actually equalize that. Tooled up from Graves, Pelage Singles Out and Obulus goes ham. A bit boring, and I really love Scalpels run and gun playstyle, but eh. Obulus also has confidence. Could be interesting on Pelage. I don't really care that much about Puppetmaster to be honest. It's incredibly expensive and I prefer to still do things with my Inf besides spending 5 just to get the ball and pass it. Lure is a big thing, that's also why I didn't use Obulus. It did its job. Pelage and Skulk change a lot about how their Roster works and it almost offsets vetGraves lack of Character Traits. Scalpel is really good at supporting the team offensively AND defensively and gives speed. I really want to use Bonesaw at some point because Pelage is another models with a kick of 3/6 which so far has been pretty sparse in the Morts, and Scalpel, Pelage and Graves or vetGraves deliver 3/6 so Football Dervish is much more relevant.
  20. With Dirge being the only former source of Singled Out (trying to get used to No Union) Pelage is a must for vetGraves. But yeah, the Tac Bonus is quiet nice. Cosset also gives you Lure which is also really good for isolating. Before Pelage you would have the decision between Damage or Lure, having both is quiet nice. I guess I will try to use Pelage as Goalscorer next. She has some capability. In the round after he should be able to hit a target that suffers KD and maybe Snared with one or two extra dice which is really intense. Though I played vs Farmers, which means no armor.
  21. Okay, I've put some thought over the day into it and came to a conclusion. Scalpel, Dirge/Vileswarm, Pelage, Cosset/Bonesaw, vetGraves, Skulk/Casket/Ghast Not sure about Vileswarm. If I wouldn't include Vileswarm I would instead bring Scalpel, Dirge, Pelage, Cosset/Bonesaw, vetGraves/Graves, Casket/Ghast/Skulk The Slots are meant to be seen as "These models go together", so for example Scalpel, Dirge, Pelage, Bonesaw, Graves, Ghast. The third slot model will be the last model I draft depending on what comes last from my opponent.
  22. Played Scalpel, Dirge, Cosset, Pelage, Skulk and vetGraves. Didn't expect that. Pelage basically wrecked the Farmers and the rest of the roster cleaned up after her. vetGraves generated 6 points. Pelage destroyed Harrow for 2 points and Scalpel shot a goal. He destroyed Cosset with Tater but with Pelage we finally have two models that can deal significant damage, so no matter if he kills of Cosset OR Pelage, there is another model that can still pose as train without breaks. Skulk wasn't that useful, though he completely negated the first turn goal with Horrific Odour, so he did something. Pelage created big headaches for my opponent, as at one point the Scarecrow, Tater AND Harrow were in her 2" aura. So satisfying. He opted for 3 damage. Didn't really matter which one he took, both was hard to deal with. And Pelage just wrapped herself to MVP status in the first game. I've got a new favorite model, she instantly clicked. I think Pelage and Ghast can also pose a big problem. Though the extra two Influence for killing Grange also helped a lot. Would have played differently if I would not have gotten that Plot card.
  23. Vet Graves Speculation Thread

    Didn't know we could have ever done that anyway. Don't have the money for the Playtest event, as I would have to fly to England for that. Not that I wouldn't do that if I had the money, would be a nice weekend I guess. Would be nice if he could get "Hooked" as a trait. Edit: I should add though, I do like the combination of a KD and bleed. Or Gravedigger. It's just not generating Momentum. Morts are already having problem generating momentum, which is why we need BPM and/or Cosset. So why just another model that has less Momentum results than playbook length and additionally not a single character trait (those heroics are so useless I just can't justify counting them as Character Traits)
  24. Vet Graves Speculation Thread

    Ît would also be great if Morts would get some passive traits that work outside of their activation or allow them to do something. Like Close control or Linked or stuff like that, or sturdy. Or an additional model with fear. So far passive value is created by Ghast and Casket, but who is insane enough to play them together in a serious match. That doesn't make any sense. I haven't understood so far why vGraves didn't get anything. It's not like he is useful. Guess it's because Obs can make him attack outside of his activation for the incredible discount price of 4 Influence. And he has a KD on three! With a Tac of five that is at least a chance of 90% against the mythical 4/1 if we go with the vetHearn advertisement logic from the Steamforged blog. Crippled Guild. So much potential. In all seriousness: There is a reason why so many people like Brainpan and Memory or old Graves. They deliver value. They change things. vGraves is basically a useless version of his former self that doesn't pose a threat and is disposed in the blink of an eye like the rest of the guild. If he just had anything that would increase is survivability... Compairing them you can easily see what I mean. Old Graves gets additional charge range against damaged targets. You bleed if you get damaged by him. Easy Tackle, good kick. Ok Momentum. Tooled Up. So much passive value. vetGraves? "I... I push. And sometimes, when I use 2 Influence I might get a KD that doesn't generate momentum." Damn... I love that model so much, but OG is objectively more useful than VG. And this is exactly why I can't await Ratcatchers. So much high def and shenanigans. Nice powerlevel so far from what I've seen. Playable! vGraves won't get included though if he stays that way. I don't trust Playtesters farther than I can throw my purse, and that is chained to my trousers. I am sorry if it sounds insulting to the designers, I am just disappointed in what happened to the Guild that brought me into GB...
