    Loving the stripes as everyone else is. Kinda makes me want to paint someone with a proper football kit. Maybe Newcastle style...

    pundit woes

    Hey guys, I'm sitting here on a slightly coldish Autumn evening (actually it's an unseasonably warm 19 degrees celsius) at the end of the world feeling a little frustrated. I am hoping someone can help out or at least give me a false sense of security/reassurance. I appreciate this may not be a topic for the forums but not sure where else to go with this to be honest. So the frustration is because I applied for pundit status in early Feb (2nd of Feb) and so far have not heard anything back (other than confirmation of application email). I had all these hopes of running a launch event for the Falconers and getting in a couple of small tournies as well. I sent an email to the generic SF games feedback address and they responded within 24 hours basically saying to wait I'll hear back soon, that was over a month ago now. We only have 2 pundits in New Zealand (which, fun fact is geographically bigger than England), and they are both located in the same city at the top end of the country. There is not much of a national scene and I would like to change that. Especially given that we have some decent local players. One of my weekly opponents came 2nd at worlds last year after winning the Aussie Nationals, and another just came back from the states where he came 3rd (albeit thanks to the bye). For all the pundits out there, how long did it take for you to get a response etc? If any of you are able to help with my frustration that would be great. I don't mind if it is a sorry we don't need you as a pundit right now response, or even a you suck and got all the answers wrong response, I would just like some sort of response I guess. So frustration vented for now...

    Why I don't like veteran gutter

    So ran vGutter in a non Ox lineup yesterday. I think she would seem less meh if her playbook was only four long. Drop the mom 2 down to column two (keep the push on column two) and slide everything down one, possibly make her GB momentous as well. I would be happy with that. Icing on the cake would be to give her butcher tac of 6.

    Man you have the eyes of an eagle. Like the idea of pint pot style mechanic where each player has a stack of food they can eat throughout the match for extra inf or buffs etc. Hoping that both our cross over models have a heroic or legendary play, I think we need more of those in the Butchers.

    Kdogs completed stuff

    So finally based my final 4 hunters in time to receive the exiles for my birthday (mixed emotions here, thought I was over painting Butchers and Hunters...) any poor photo quality as per usual etc First up, drooly bear, bit of an experiment this one (i have mixed feelings about it's success) Followed by vHearne (i tried to keep some of my original hunters colours in here as well as the winter ones. Again mixed opinion myself) Finally contender with Tenderiser for coolest unused model, it's Ulfr I also got a neat green stuff world rolling pin for my bday from the kids. Here is the first trial (so simple to use even i got it right first go) And just a wee taste of what I am working on now (new guild, new scheme) As always happy to get constructive criticism etc Also wondering on the best way to highlight the armour on the smiths....open to suggestions.

    Kdogs completed stuff

    So after being hit by the photobucket hand of doom I have scrapped my old WIP thread and will be chucking up my completed minis here. Only the butchers at the mo (Meathook is about 80% done) but will be followed (rather slowly) by Hunters, Union, Fish, and the kick off set. So here we go in no particular order.... Apologies in advance for poor photography skills, lack of any painting ability and the hodge podge way the pics will show up

    Painting Blacksmiths as Alt Avengers and need ideas

    Definitely moon knight for Alloy, there are enough variants of Deadpool, why not do Hearth as old lady deadpool? Ferris could be Valkyrie maybe?
  11. Delays work well for me, makes it easier for me to save up and buy the toys once I know they have released. (although it did mean the difference between me getting the Exiles instead of Falconers for my birthday...). Damn these first world problems

    Season 4 Changes

    Honestly never even noticed stuff was written in Bold writing. Guess I missed a key part of enjoying the game . I like the other changes so far. I was super against the MOM going to kicker change, until a game I played on Saturday where Alloy was taken out of action for the entire first turn thanks to ranged KD (screw you Ballista) and had no way of getting up at all. Now I can't wait for it. Unless it helps my friends, then nah it sucks...

    I understand the need for hats etc to ID them as cooks/chefs. However surely Tenderiser could have had a different one...

    Not sure if you guys have seen the alt Shank and Tenderiser sculpts as well. All I can say is, they have turned Tenderiser from worst Best looking model to, worst bad looking model. If anyone should never wear a hat it is definitely him...

    First tournament need to do some theory balling

    Well here is the rundown of the tourney. https://www.longshanks.org/events/?event=1116 took me the rest of the week to drive back down etc. Fairly pleased with how it went (minus the last thirty seconds). First up vs Kick off Masons I ran Fillet, Princess, Meathook, oBrisket, Boiler and Shank. This was a pretty fun game and I had a chance to finish it earlier but Brisket fluffed a bonus timed super shot from 4.5" out by rolling 1, 1, 2, 3, 3!!!! Fillet picked up MVP by managing to get 10 out of 12 points. I also had a moment in the game where all 6 masons were bleeding . Second game vs Morts was a great one. Scalpel, Vileswarm, Silence,Pelage, Ghast and Graves. I played Fillet, Princess, Meathook, vBrisket, oMinx and Boar. The game was great with me pulling ahead early and my opponent coming back with some great in out take outs from Scalpel. Ultimately it came down to the initiative (which was a dice roll after cards), I won it and vBriskit walked over and took out silence and had enough left to slot a goal as well (if it was necessary). Third game was an odd one for me. Playing into Esters, Quaff, vDecimate, Friday, Spigot and oHemlocke. I took, Fillet, Princess, Shank, Boiler, vBrisket and Meathook. I started poorly by standing Boiler, Princess and vBrisket side by side which Esters just loved and so too did Hemolcke... Luckily I managed to play cagey enough the rest of the game to edge ahead for a bit and heal them. Now going into this round, me and my two regular opponents from Wellington were the only players who had gone 2-0. This being my first tournament I did not realise the significance at first of winning, and therefore forcing a tie break with the winner of those two (and a fourth round for everyone else). Anyway back to the game. It got super tense at the end and my brain went to mush with the possibility of another win and ended up with me making a couple of basic mistakes (not healing players etc) and my opponent clocking out. It was 11 all and he managed to jiggery pokery himself to a spot where he was able to take out Princess (one of the players I forgot to heal ) and he picked up the win with about 15seconds left on his clock.. All in all fun tournament for my first ever outing. Also please that the other Butcher player managed to pick up two wins as well and keep the great guild in mid pack with me
  22. Hey all, I am finally going to make it to my first tournament ever in early July and would like to do well enough to justify the road trip from Wellington to Auckland (will be a big effort involving an 8-10 hour journey in a car with my wife and three kids...). I have been mostly playing hunters throughout season 3 but want to go back to my roots for this tourney for a few reasons. 1. Butchers are choice 2. Won't have vMinx and Minx no longer available. Nor will my Alt Mataagi be painted 3. I only really use about 7 different hunters players... I have settled on the following for my 10 but am open to changing it based on trial and error and advice from experienced tourney goers: Ox, Fillet, Princess, oBrisket, vBrisket, Boar, Boiler, Meathook, Shank and Minx (I don't/won't have access to vGutter). Had my first training game last night against my mate that came third at US nats. He was using Obby morts. Obs, Pelage, oGraves, Vileswarm, vHemlocke, BP&M vs my Fillet, vBrisket, Boar, Meathook, Princess and Shank. Game went average as I brushed off my Hunters webs. Scored late turn two with vBrisket to be generating more inf than the morts for the first time ever. Game ended 12-8 to morts and I was feeling fairly annoyed as I could have easily won by just playing the ball a turn earlier. Anyway, what I was hoping for from my Butchers bretheren is not so much advice vs Morts (have beaten them enough to be confident into them) more I want to get advice on playing into super cagey playstyles. It is not something we really do in the local meta. We are generally pretty aggressive in our playstyle (kinda have to be vs Peter Williams). However since vengeance and his time in the states my friend has been playing far more cagey (translation: hanging back and not really committing much to the game) and it really threw me yesterday. I kept fuelling the tooled up Obulus take out game, first Shank, then Fillet, then he got two goals with the boatman. Basically no one in his team apart from Obulus and memory made it past halfway (wuss). Given that I fired vBrisket upfield for the goal on turn one (dodge and sprint through fast terrain) I was only able to quick foot one player for the first couple of turns meaning they were all way out of range and he kept it this way all game. Super frustrating. How do you all deal with cagey play? Do you just shut up shop and play cagey as well. My opponent suggested just holding the ball in my half and forcing him to commit, which I see the value in until I get caught out with the ball near my own goal... So please, sage advice welcome
