    10?

    Farris bolt are amazing! I do feel they are a packaged deal like Alloy Hearth. Ranged KD - for free? 10" attack for 1? So many uses for this pair...if you want to play football. If TOs are your plan, then sure they help less - but Stagger and Bolty can do some TO work.

    10?

    For me probably Cast or oCinder. They are the least played in my 10. Cast is obviously amazing with Cinder2 but she has limits (slow, 1", squishy). OCinder is amazing at ball collection, stopping ball killing but you may be playing Cinder2 a lot. Hard choices for BS at last.

    Yes - Plan B is indeed underway. I was just hoping for getting them from the pure Source!

    @Mako Would it be possible to get a vCinder card to download? I need to try her!

    I think she's a Side Winder missile. You fire and forget as she'll probably get taken out. What's important is she cripples the opponent and sets up the rest of the gang. Cast + vCinder is serious threat.
  6. In the rules forum the lawyers have indeed overruled this. Yep a built in 2" is amazing.
  7. FAMOUS!!! WOOO OOOOO!! Also for those interested, The Tamplin liked vCalculus and flippin' loves vCinder. The Tamplin now refers to himself in the 3rd person... Also +1 Internet point, Sylvester McCoy was indeed the best Doctor - FIGHT ME! [EDIT] - Assists don't stack.

    Ratcatcher's hopes for s04

    You're right - I would have said Robin Reliant - but I don't think US peeps would get the reference!

    As long as I get Zarola's 'Knife'...

    Ratcatcher's hopes for s04

    Because he is insanely slow, gets in the way with Tag Along (directly), is easy to hit, has a powerful but hard to hit CP, and basically does nothing. Mascots are usually good when they do something for free, or when the their active playbook/CPs are good. Squeak has none of these. A slow, 3/1 model that is asking to generate momentum/Character plays (Sucker Punch target) and just get in the way. Frustrating. Every Guild has a good mascot (Some two), and compare Frelsi to Squeak....I am disappoint son.

    Ulfr

    Meh, he's slow, INF intensive and fights his own design. All the things you have above could be done by Egret for less INF, whom I actually like and contributes wherever on the pitch she is and she has ARM. But to each their own.

    Squeak is deeply frustrating but I think working as SFG intend sadly. He's a nuclear-missile trapped to a mini-cooper...

    Veteran Decimate

    TBH I've found Esters and Quaff make her absolutely bonkers. TAC 7, +2 or 4 SPD, +2 DMG (Spigot1 obvs)? She goes in, probably TOs and yo-yos out and is untouchable. Some Guilds cannot deal with this. What's that Skippy? A new Brewers has been released Skippy? What's wrong Skippy, tap it out with your paw. B....R....O.....K....E.....N. Broken?

    Hearne1 and Theron's forest mean he should be b2b. No counterattack matters at that point. But while we disagree, we can at least agree Seenah needs Something. My view is Knockback (Make her counters worthwhile) and Sturdy. At the least. I still think we need to have a conversation about Berserk. She's a frickin bear man.

    Possibly tweeks in S4

    BONESAW IS READY!!! *Cage Match* Seriously though, for all the things you say about Seenah, Theron and Hearne can do better and not remove 2 INF from the team. Seenah's issue is that she is a massive target but is not that strong to taking it. I think Seenah should be more of a tank (LOOK. AT. THE. MODEL...) but isn't. And I know SFG think she's some sort of sweeper but if I want a model taken out I can get so much work out of Theron, Hearne or Jaecar why would I take a -2 INF bear? And she's so bloody easy to hit for Character Plays and her Counter Attacks are terrible. She is also so easy to KD and TO or farm. The other issue she has is that Bear Hug is waaaay too high up the playbook. Compare Snack Break. And it has to be the attack that takes the model out! That is insane on a TAC 7 model that needs 6 successes to trigger it! When are you doing this except in rare circumstances someone leave a 4 Wound model left near Seenah?? And sure it does 4 DMG - but I only get 3 bloody attacks out of Seenah! She suffers from basically being a 0/3 model and she doesn't have the DMG output or power of models such as Scourge or Windle or others. She is big, freakin' bear and she gently pats people on the head - WHILE COSTING YOU 2 INF! If she were 2/2 with Furious then maybe I would take her a sweeper but what on earth justifies her being 0/2? For 0/2 I expect explosive DMG - but she doesn't do that. Compare Fallow or Windle (who are in a team that can literally print INF if they want and both have INF efficiency) who can do insane DMG if they want. Seenah is a poor choice over Hearne1, Jaecar, Minx2, Minx1, Chaska and going forward Minerva. Why would you EVER take her in a 6? She penalises the team for mediocre output. Math time: Against 4+/1 she has a 72% chance to hit 5 successes (50% to hit 6) - so 2 DMG and KD, then she follows up with two attacks that have 83% chance to hit 3 successes (57 to hit 4). That's 4 more DMG. Oh wow - you spent 4 INF (because 0/2 is a thing) to achieve 6 DMG and a KD. Wow. If you managed to Snare the target and they don't clear it because your opponent is insane then sure, you have 71% to do Bear Hug and then the same as above or 88% to 3 DMG and KD and then 90% to do 4 (NON-MOM) a hit for 11 DMG. That's pretty good - only gets you 1 MOM though - and definitely not Bear Hug TO. But how often is a Snared model left near Seenah? For Reference Hearne1: Against 4/1, 80% to hit Singled Out, 77% to hit 2 DMG twice, and throw the spear for 1 MOM (and maybe bonus time) at 75%-(87% with BT) for 3 more DMG - 7 DMG, 1-2 Momentum and it only cost the team 1 INF not 2. I do not like Seenah as is. She needs more WOW or she just won't get taken. You're going on the list... @Jamie P is already on there after the weekend...He knows what he's done...

    No idea but my feeling is RCs won't get changed. I think we can reason they were designed as S4 was designed so probably play tested with that. The only things we might see are a Bonesaw/Graves2 change - but that's more for Morts benefit than Rats. I fear Rats are working as intended.

    I have no idea but my spidey sense is tingling that SFG might think Hunters are too good now. I know right? WTF. But with the addition of Minx2 and Minerva (and some other guy) they might now be...top tier. Even though Seenah (guys, everyone else in Hunters does more DMG or has better KDs - just...stop. She is bad), Ulfr, Hearne2 are junk, it seems likely that T-man and the Hearne might get cuddled, possibly also Jaecar (because Harrier). I hope I'm wrong. But I'm fairly sure SFG just don't want Hunters to ever have the Iron Throne. For some reason. My biggest problem with Hunters are that half the guild is amazing (now, finally) and half is total bobbins. But alas the awesome half might be inviting a cuddle. So play Hunters while you can!
  19. Hi folks, I've played a few games with Rats and I keep finding Squeak to absolutely useless. I see Dreadful Shriek as amazing but it's 1" and Squeak is SOOOO SLLLOOOWW. Also I don't want to spend 2 INF for the charge or pay for it (1 dice play) and Tac 3 to hit column 2 is...bad? His crap defence stats just see him getting taken out and generating momentum (and character plays in one painful experience). How are people using this rat...cos' I'm definitely using him WRONG! (I wish he was DEF 5...then at least he could run around crowding people out). Help meeeeee...

    Season 4 wish listing

    +1 like Protective Instinct. I just want his Singled Out to be on 1 or at most 2. Having SO on 3 is just bad. Sledge I think is fine - but he could do being /4 not /3 - just make Pile Driver OPT. I think Sledges main issue is that Anvil is too damn slow, which slows Sledge (who has to stay near or get murdered) and stops him showing off. The /3 is also crippling.

    Veteran Fangtooth

    The Ecumenical discussion aside, I think Fang2th is insanely powerful in Union, good in order. Bloody Coin ramps his DMG to silly levels. 4 on 2, 7 on 5, Tac 7. Whisper it...for the next 5 months, Union are the new Thresher Farmers....

    "No longer called Traffic Accidents, they're Collisions". I bloody love Hot Fuzz - it's definitely my favourite of the 3 and is just endlessly hilarious.

    Any ideas about the minor guild

    So I wonder if the Lawman might be a guild of debuffers (anti-Brewers). Buffing is getting a little out of control and while SFG have wisely avoided Purification (because it's universally hated), they might want a Guild that balances some of these out. Perhaps they might be the Guild to control some of this (apply the LAW...) because historically the introduction of Law often comes with the concept of balance (Scales of Justice). They might provide anti-buff debuffs such as 'Smashed Wrist: -1 DMG to Playbook DMG results and character plays', sort of thing. Calling it now - I bet the mascot is a bulldog...

    I think they've all but announced BS minor here as Watch surely. Farris and Ferrite as ex-watch? Makes sense as then they can be cross-over models.

    Being taken for Granite...

    I mean I think Granite has her place maybe, sometimes. Possibly. But definitely not into vDecimate. vChisel however is hot sauce - take her and Hammer the shit out of vDecimate.
