  1. Really dislike this idea. A roll off for the first turn is simple and just works. I don’t think it’s much less random then shuffling the GP deck then deciding to discard two anyway, given the scattering of the values in the deck.

    S4 Hunters finally revealed!

    I still think jaecar 100% has a place in the 12 and for sure in some 6s. He saw the table twice in my last event.

    Egret & Flurry question?

    This is actually very useful if for example a opponent is keeping one of your own players at 1/2 health to kill at the start of the next turn to deny you the player for the turn. Have egret flurry the opposing model, which will kill your model. It denies them the ability to get any momentum next turn from the take out & means yuh will have your player on the pitch next turn to do what you want with. Not exactly what it’s designed but a situational use which can be a big deal.

    S4 Favorite Skatha + 5 line up

    To be honest I think any line up that involves Skatha + Zarola + Bear is super strong in S4. Those 3 players really do cover a massive aspect of the game.

    First S4 event breakdown.

    So I had my first S4 event today at cambrigde today, longshanks link - https://www.longshanks.org/events/?event=1588 First S4 games with Hunters, I left Chaska, vHearne & Snow at home. I drafted ever player bar Ulfr, who I'm going to drop for Snow next game to play into Blacksmiths, Butchers & probably Honour Masons. Tough day playing 4 WTC players but I took the event out 4-0, I did have the run of the luck when I needed it in a couple of the games. Skatha v Theron 12 - 6 Theron v Ox 12-9 Theron v Smoke 12-7 Skatha v vRage - 12-6. The new Skatha & Seenah are awesomeeeeeeeeee.

    For me Ulfr will be staying out the 12, along with Chaska & vHearne

    Fair matey, glad to see Ulfr doing work

    Ulfr needs a little luck to get the ball of oBrisket needing 3 5s on 6 dice and it gets worse if she’s in cover but glad it worked out for you dude.

    S4 Team Changes

    Excellent work mate, I just saw one error that says Skathas legendary adds a push dodge to each result, it just adds a dodge now bud.

    I think Hunters have enough depth & two good enough captains that you could play either captain into the match up and you’d stand a good enough chance. I agree Skatha doesn’t care about her charmed but she does care about her UM. If the opponent doesn’t give you a opportunity to dodge into oBrisket Skatha isn’t getting it. vMinx can negate that but vMinx has to get to oBrisket, and your game plan totally depends on that ball. At least with Theron you can still slot in a goal easy enough with oHearne, Jaecar or vMinx and have that control. You cant out fight them in a direct fight, but you can pick out and scalpel players using pinned & G&S to get the VPs you need to win. I think if you think you’re playing a weaker player who doesn’t have the skill to hide the ball in a effective manner Skatha will do what Shark does to Ox. For me, if I know I’m playing a skilled opponent I want the utility that Theron can bring.

    Right... So he got into 8" of Theron prior to activating said model.. I mean I'm just confused how this whole thing even happened.

    As in pin Ox on his deployment line or something?

    You realise it's momentum for the person kicking off, not for the person recieving right?

    S4 butchers.

    I played against Butchers this weekend at a event, so many of there squaddies are much improved. Boilers throwing axe doing 4 damage inside the owner and 3 more for bleed is painful, oBrisket gaining above and beyond is amazing, Shank going 2/4 is where he wants to be and vGutter sweeping charge is painful. Butchers are looking super strong in S4.

    First S4 event breakdown.

    The issue with Skatha is it gives the option for Butchers to hide the ball. Nurser could of literally just ran the ball off with oBrisket into a place I just couldn’t get it. Theron removes the option of hiding the ball and forces the engagement, which I can somewhat control with Pinned & G&S. It used to be a awful match up for Ox but the game was crazy close, I had to close the game out by killing Shank & getting a goal in the same activation or I would of lost. I only had one minute for the last activation as well. The match up now is waaaaaay closer, Butchers have gained a lot of reach in Boilers throwing axe, Shank going 2/4 and is massively threat paired with Marked Target, vGutteds sweeping charge and against big threat with marked target is big. The squaddies in Butches are massively scary and Ox’s improved aura only compounds it.

    Yeah I dragged seenah in all the games bar one, avoided her against ox.

    S4 Hunters finally revealed!

    Jaecar is still awesome, he still does his thing - turns 4 INF into 8 MOM damage, still has a ton dodges and can still somewhat reduce a models effectivenes by dropping -4 movement onto a player. I don't think he's a bad player and if someone is still running I can appreciate why, for me though he doesn't bring anything super unqiue to the team (Bar G&S, which is still awesome). He's a very hungry player who is ultimately just doing some damage, players like oHearne, Mataagi / Minerva, Egret / Chaska, Zarola, vMinx, Seenah all bring something unique to the team which I can use as a tool in the draft. While Jaecar is still awesome, he does have his downsides like being a hungry player to fully do what he wants to, the loss of bleed on his trap as well as the G&S change is a real pain and then lastly you constnatly have be aware of CA and sometimes you dice fuck you or your opponent spikes and he's left in the wind. Not only that SFG have made it so there is much less stando offs in the game, so there will be less space for Jaecar to hang on a fringe and bully a player to negate them. All that equates to me dropping Jaecar for now, if a month into the season I feel like I'm really missing the slippery fella I will drop him back in of course.

    For me I think what vHearne does now is fun but I don't necessairly think massively effective. oHearne does similliar things in regards to teleporting but can flip to straight murdering people. Between Sktha, Ulfr, & vMinx I think ball retriaval shouldn't be such a massive problem. I'm a fan of Egret into things like Corsair, Blacksmiths, Morticians etc - clumped up teams or low health pools she preys on.

    S4 Hunters finally revealed!

    Yeah on further thought, I think Snow, vHearne & Jaecar will be staying at home.

    S4 Hunters finally revealed!

    I'll be leaving vHearne, Chaska & Jaecar at home. All the other 12 will be coming with me.

    Minerva in Hunters.

    So I played my first game with our new addition this afternoon and wow, she is just as good as her card looks. She's probably one of the best early activations we have, leaving players on low health and removing them with Minerva is amazing because - It's almost guaranteed Eye spy's / Harriers as the player is normally Snared and / or crowded out, so you can take a momentous eye spy / harrier, two of either then kill the player as well as her pseudo tooled up if your below recovery level means it's even more reliable. Then on top of all that you get a free come on mate, just damnnnn. She blew my mind, she's a better additong then I thought (and I thought she was a amazing one).

    Damn, Ulfr, Seenah, Skatha changes just look so fun I need to try them. I think Chaska & vHearne look way more interesting, now I just need to play with it all.

    Hunters Turn 1 Practice

    Typically I go 5 Theron, 4 Jaecar/vMinx, 3 oHearne. Fahad / Zarola get 0, Theron SS / Snipe / Snipe / Pinned in some order, or 1 less Snipe and a BOTSF for Zarola. oHearne / Jaecar either go kill said player Theron reduced down, or get a goal.
