    First Game with alchs against Navigators

    I haven't played Alchs for a long time, so this is just thinking aloud: You probably want to take Smoke, for the conditions to slow them down and get the pain on them, not to mention catching up to the buggers. I'd also be tempted by Naja, for the 2" Unpredictable Movemement, 5+ DEF and occasional Hypnosis. I love oKatalyst, and he has a nice low and good speed. He'd probably go well with Crucible, for more 2" melee and Great Balls of Fire. Is Compound good in S4? He's a battery to give everyone else INF and he'll protect your goal. Which leaves Vitriol, cos why wouldn't you take Vitriol? Compound near your goal, only needing 1 INF for Horrific Odour if you think they'll go on a goal run (heh). Get fire spread about with Smoke and oKat, use Crucible to retrieve the ball and get it to Vit or Smoke to score back. Naja is a place to hold the ball to make life harder for them. When the chance occurs, Kat, Compound and Vitriol can go into someone for a beat down. Hopefully someone will be along to give some more up-to-date info soon.

    S4 Farmer Preview

    They didn't play vFangers? He makes a BIG difference vs. Windle - Resilience plus early pushes/s hurts Windle lots, plus once Windle is down, every point of INF on vFangers is a Ground Pound, which IS momentous damage on Windle and batters everyone Harry can push into vFang's melee. I've had a hard time facing off against vFangers, so much so I don't think I'd take Windle against him but swap in the donkey and possibly Harrow for the Marked Target to hunt down strikers and pop Resilience (Thresher captain).

    Kick scatter discussion

    I suppose the new Tap In rule goes some way to mitigate missed passes, in that they are less likely to happen, even though they are worse when they do. If every scatter just went to the person you were aiming at anyway, there would be little to no risk in passing at all, and there should be some risk.

    Minor League Rules

    Looking at your list of examples (I'm British, the entire idea of university sport being a big deal beyond anyone directly involved is bizarre to me), I'd suggest trying out Cage Ball with just the 6 from the minor box available, possibly expanding to adding the crossover players if 6 feels too limiting. Cage Ball 2'x3' pitch, goals and lines as marked on standard pitch (basically, lose 6" from the two flanks of the pitch) 4 players per side - 1 captain, 1 mascot, 2 squaddies Play to 8 points As this would be Minor vs. Minor, ignore the +1 on initiative roll, probably drop the extra card as well

    You're not wrong...

    The Character Design for this Game is SO Good.

    Mercury and oKat were the models that made me decide to play Alchemists first, and the KS Midas is also awesome. Of the latest models, Granite is very characterful and my favourite Masons sculpt, Benediction has a very elegant look, rather classically posed too, so he's up there, and rookie Windle is another characterful piece I have to buy at Salute - I've added a fox walking past with a rabbit in it's mouth to emphasis how lazy and crap at his jump Windle really is (standing around eating turnips while the farm's produce is being stolen literally right under his nose).

    Are there any Chance for restocks ?

    It's been that way since they dropped the single metals, and it's just got worse, with the resin and PVC problems. What really annoyed and upset me was that the quality of the casting on the metals from the Exiles and especially the Faithful was amazingly good - no flash, almost no mould lines, some of the best casts I've ever seen from anyone. To think SFG have picked a production partner that pumps out messes like the Falconers instead of the one that produced the multi-guilds beggars belief (and I believe it was a Netherlands based company, so really close in comparison to China - less tsunami issues, at least).

    Season 4 Paper Dolls

    It's great all players are available at Longshanks, but they are all different heights, which looks weird, and just not as engaging visually as the original/official dolls. I love the first concept artist, it's a major reason why I backed the game, so I much prefer the official style. The Longshanks proxies are practical and useful, but I feel like the others would be better to engage a new player (if you can't get miniatures).
  9. Generally the cross-over models have been some of the traditionally less played models for the major, so I'd certainly say Mercury is up there. I doubt Vitriol is going over (she's been burnt before...) but Crucible would make some sense.

    Grenoir's New Guilds

    Very nice. Got to say, I love your basing. The cacti and crackle paint is fantastic! Where did you get them from?

    Season 4 Paper Dolls

    @orange did an unofficial set of S2 paper dolls with links in this thread. Covers pretty much all but one of the models from each of the 1st 7 majors when combined with the official dolls (no vOx, vChisel, or other S3 models). Hunters are in there, but just the S2 releases (no Winters Moon). Other than that, your best bet is to dig around in the file sections of the various Facebook groups.

    S4 Chisel (oChisel) lacking flavour and value?

    She is simpler, but SFG themselves admitted they messed up with the original release of Chisel - her rules got designed before the designers had seen her story, which was completely different from the S&M monster she was. The original intent was more innocent and footbally. S3 the story got tweaked a little to make the rules fit, then S4 it looks like they went for an in-the-middle redo. I want to play her, but I think vChisel works better with Hammer, and I love Hammer...

    Are there any Chance for restocks ?

    I doubt it, I'm afraid. The metal teams we've been told are now OOP, so if it's out of stock on the site, it will be forever. SFG themselves have said go to local shops to get hold of them. I wanted the Spirit Weavers myself, but had to settle for just Pirates Return (which was luckily for me restocked as they claimed to have missed some items in the rushed build up to the sale). The mat will probably be back in stock in the next sale, whenever that is - you may have to wait until next November. If you're lucky they might find some to sell at events - keep an eye out.

    Would you describe God Tear as a board game? That's certainly not my impression of it. How similar to God Tear is Redline?

    Miners looking cool, Shark looks good (shame she's in the Entertainers), also interested in Redline. Hoping it's nice and simple, more board game like.
