    Trying my best not to break the NDA

    Ahh, fair. I haven’t done much butchering, and I’d never made her def6 so I didn’t register it as a nerf! The range and bleed boosts will make her less likely to sit in melee and get hit though with a bit of luck

    I honestly didn’t spot any fillet nerfs, what did I miss?

    It’s up! And I’m very pleased that butchers are going to be my second guild. Even if I may have to have some cooks models

    Let’s be honest, with season 4 coming up it’s almost certain seenah will get a work over, and that’s without knowing any secret info!

    That’s weird - I can, it’s pretty sweet!
  6. Hi folks, Following on from my attempts to not have every guild going, I have a handful of models that I've reluctantly accepted I'll never get round to using. Which means they may as well go to a better home where someone will actually wave a brush at them and maybe even put them on the pitch! (I'm keeping four major guilds and a few minors, that should be plenty ) So I have the following, all untouched: metal Xmas Hearth/Buckwheat metal Skaldcifest Esters/Quaff metal Veteran Harriet metal Averisse/Greede 2 Metal Obuluses (Obuli? Honestly not sure how I've ended up with so many of him, I have four if you count all the sculpts...) Resin Masons original 6 (Kickstarter Honour, Harmony, Flint, Brick, Marbles, Mallet) - also got Tower in a box somewhere I think. If anyone's interested in some of these, drop me a PM. I may add more later on, depending on what I find in the grey mountain
  7. The most reliable way to get that info to the warehouse team is definitely to email support@steamforged.com or message them via http://steamforged.com/contact/ They should be able to sort that out for you, though it may be quite busy in the warehouse with the expansions coming out. If I remember rightly, a while back outlook had this darling ‘feature’ of dropping email chains to the bottom of the queue when new ones came in, so it’s best to wait rather than email several times from the same address, to avoid that little snag! (although waiting doesn’t exactly feel reassuring, I realise!)

    All you have to do is play more games than the morticians, that shouldn’t be too hard! They’ll never get away with the same trick as last year, after all who do we have that you’d want back now... Though I’m glad it’s because you want edge, rather than just to jerk the morts over. Would be a fairly pants event if you didn’t want anyone as much as you wanted to annoy a different guild! (Annoying the morticians is a happy bonus though, right? )
  9. Vet decimate has already gone
  10. Hadn’t though of that! Getting a female model would mean the ladies tea and murder squad would be fully realised at long last I just like her hair
  11. That’s definitely the key I reckon - doesn’t matter who we pick if we’re last in the draft order! Whoever people decide to vote for, as long as they’re reporting games we have a better chance of getting an actual pick rather than a leftover
  12. Is that the wisest plan though? After all, we won’t be the top of the draft order so if everyone goes for one model, we won’t have a decent second/third choice (or fifth, sixth, wherever the dregs end up )
  13. Given how much we struggle for inf, I don’t really want a high influence/potential big payoff player - one expensive all or nothing play on a captain is plenty Control is all well and good, but it doesn’t really win games. So I think edge is my top pick too, then maybe kami or knuckles.
  14. I tend to struggle with damage, but I’m always facing brewers so that probably explains it Champ though... forward, ball playing and ball retrieving. Could be an option? Hair wise, it’s hard to tell. Not much detail there in the art!

    He’s one of the top blokes, and I reckon in the top ten for the game as a whole. He looks after his blonde locks
  16. Mako

    And third place for hair, I reckon. Possibly 4th. Middle of the pack, anyway
  17. So, knuckles then... a heavy tackle, with the ability to take a punch and deal with forward players. Could be useful for the morticians? On the important side of things, not bad hair - not the best, but I reckon above average. Third place for him
  18. You want to give the engineers more ranged abuse capability? I originally said it fairly throwaway, but the more I think on it, getting the ball back is one of the weaker things in my mind. All just my (limited) experience of course, but the big difficulty I have is that we can shut down all sorts of tricks, but in the end that’s not scoring us any points. It might be because I play a more goal oriented scalpel-bonesaw-vHemlocke thing, but the biggest problem is when the other side have the ball. Once that happens, all we can do is try to force them into a weak play while they pick whether to score or take out players, whichever is their strength (and we’re pretty average at both VP routes, as far as I can tell, so they’ll always have a favourable pick). Sure, shutting those strengths down is the whole mortician thing, but again that’s just dragging things out in the hope of a mistake. Obulus aside, it’s really difficult to actively engage with the opposition rather than passively try to trap them (or hope for better than 1 for 1 swaps in the takeout game). So really, anyone having ranged ball threat would be gold. I doubt we’ll get Kami, but my hope would be someone to let us be a bit less passive when the ball isn’t at our feet. I could of course just be a terrible player, but then I won’t have time to play much so it’s not me that will make the decision as to who we get

    Totally forgot Fathom existed, that is good hair too! She would probably knock Friday out the list Farris is one of those in my 6th equal pile, along with siren and brisket (most of her variants have pretty good hair). Skatha is the most unique in hair terms, but it just doesn’t do much for me for whatever reason. Not sure why. Several of my top choices are because they remind me of old friends, so it’s definitely not unbiased I reckon Sakana has a good set of head and chin hair on him too, I’m not a big fan of the male ponytail on models, so that cuts a lot of the slicker men out of the running! ...have to wait til Monday to see where the next rookie ranks in the hair scale, don’t we? Damn!

    It’s tricky, there’s some good hair out there. Though it must be said, most of the bad hair is on the men and most of the good hair is on the women... I reckon my best picks are Egret, vHonour, vHemlocke, Friday and Calculus. But it’s quit tight at the top, there’s about a dozen more that have good things to be said. Zarola is pretty close to the top too. Katalyst has to be winning the hair-fail award though I think

    And with that, my free time for the next week or so becomes engaged!
  22. I could go for some ball killing/retrieval tech, if that's what Kami brings - I find the Morticians good with the ball, but a bit vulnerable getting it back off people. Kill the Ball or something with ranged tackle would go down nicely And of course, she's second in the Official Hair Rankings*, so that's handy. *not official in the least
  23. Mako

    Fairly decent hair, puts her second to Edge. She’s approved for the morticians (ball tech like kill the ball would also be fun, but it’s all about the hair)
  24. Mako

    Terrible hair though. No place for him in my morticians

    Best hair so far! That’s legit as a method of picking players, right?
