    The Casual Mortician

    I should have my Scalpel line up finished this week ready for a run out at weekend! I know V Graves and VS get some stick but I think you could have some fun with VS. Your opponent doesn’t want to kill him (boom!) so you could just keep him around, keeping people engaged, getting parting blows or the occasional cheap charge. Dirge wins though. That 10” sprint is so good for ball retrieval. I’ll be looking at: Scalpel, Dirge, Bonesaw, Brainpan and Memory up front, harassing for goals. V Hemlocke and Casket throwing out Blind conditions, and generally tying up/slowing down opponents. I’ll just have to hope for three fast goals in Turn 2. Or just 2 if I get BS to get his usual T1 goal!

    What the eff is Brainpan?

    Really fun to come back after the weekend to see these replies. Cheers folks!
  3. I recently picked up the 'season 2' Morts box. I am absolutely in love with the Brainpan and Memory mechanic, and the models are top notch. On close inspection of Brainpan (ensuring I was covering everything with undercoat) I noticed he has a face not too dissimilar to The Mouth of Sauron; the wide grin, peeled back lips, long teeth... so just what is he? I am waaaaay behind on the story, so no idea who any of the guys are outside of teh S1 rule book, but he really is a mystery.
  4. I'm just too chill for all that. I have no way of winning the thing, and if I keep coming dead last people will thing I'm doing it on purpose for the sweet Bogey Prize loot. The social side is great though. That said, I would absolutely recommend people go to at least one. I don't enjoy competitive play, but I always walk away having learned something. And playing 3 games on the clock is better than having a 4 hour game end at 8-8 because you have to go home because the store is closing.

    Things I think I learned...

    I've always been so focused on using the legendary to steal MOM to go first next turn, that THIS never once occurred to me. Brilliant.

    First actual game with the Falconers

    Nice one Ben, good write up. Saw your proxies on Twitter, brilliant work! I'me going to picking up the Falconers box - I like the idea of playing like Butchers but without actually playing Butchers

    I suppose the idea is to sacrifice him after you've already scored, then bring him on at their DZ and just have him goal-hang for a cheeky shot. Risky but you can afford to have him TO twice before he's given up the 'proper' VPs for a TO, by which time you'd hope to have most of these guys in threat range for goals, goals, gooooaaaaaals.

    These guys are exactly the Guild I've been waiting for. I'm an Old Hand with Noob Level skills - sign me up!

    Being accused of cheating

    I used to think it was just me feeling sorry for myself, but when almost everyone I've played against, in any system, says "Man, you're dice were awful!" it made me start to wonder! And when it was the first comment on a GCT Bushido video I was in, well...

    Being accused of cheating

    Ah man, yeah, I roll badly - famed for it! But I have three mates who always roll incredibly well. Like, it's embarrassing and causes great envy (verging on hatred) at the same time. One lads Union dice are laughably good, and seem to ONLY roll 6s. Sod that guy - he got some points, you got a few more, and he didn't like that.

    The Casual Mortician

    I read through this over lunch time today, and your experiences mirror mine to an alarming degree! I think I'll be picking up the Spirit weaver box tonight, and getting Scalpel on the table. I have found her on her own for £8.50 but I can't find any of BP&M or Casket sooo I'll have to stump up for the big box, and hope to make some back selling a spare bonesaw to a desperate Rats player.

    Who to Drop?

    It happens. I've battered The Corsair List four out of four times, with 'smiths, Morts (x2), and Hunters. but I cannot beat, literally, anyone else. It's challenging being so niche edit - I will probably be picking up the rat today so keep the good stuff coming.
  13. The naming is a bit strange, I agree, but no Guilds/models are being phased out. SFG said early on that there is a finite number of models for each Guild, but everything would be playable for as long as people are playing. The timing on the pre-order sucks balls for me - I'm setting off on a 2hr drive to Wales at about midday!

    How to Splat the Rats?!

    I'm here to learn! Thanks for the reply. I believe his line up will be the RC box 6, so I should probably swat up on their cards! I'm lacking a few of those models (ARRRGH) so am limited to the 7 players, for now anyways. BP+M are definitely on my shopping list though, the janky so-and-so's.
  15. Morning all (or should that be.... mourning?) I'm up against Rats on Thursday. I think Obs would be the captain to throw back some control nonsense their way (and he's the only Captain I have), and Silence for fire blast to slow them down. Bonesaw is a must, he's just too good. That leaves me with Direg, Graves, Cosset and Ghast. Do I go down the football route and just try to outscore them, leaving Ghast on the bench, or try for a 2-2 and leave Silence off? Cheers!
