    Being taken for Granite...

    I've been wondering how Granite would shape up with vChisel or that we now have 3 charaters more focused on support.

    Veteran Chisel - no more speculation

    My gut says that a VChisel /Honor/oHarmony team up maybe the most Masons of a Masons' line up. It's interesting that our guild could now have three condition manipulators/erasers on a team (which is overkill unless you want your team to have a super focused theme with one player and a Captain/Mascot pair.) Makes me wonder if SFGs tweaking what it means to be a Mason again. I also wonder how she'll work as a new partner for Granite, who always plays better with a back-up partner.

    Ideas about minor guild

    The Fireman's Guild, they wash away all conditions with every other player, but are otherwise very plain jane. Of couse Masons can only use the two plain jane players. 😂

    We will miss you "coach."

    So the blog has Honor's new card as a Farmer and it comes with a new keyword, "coach." I wonder if we will have our own coach in Season 4. If I had only see her fluff, I would have voted for Granite. Based on actual stats, I'd probably lean more towards Tower or VHarm.

    All praise the plastic!

    So my kid didn't fully zipper my Reaper bag so when I pulled it out of the car, all of my Mason "fatties" fell out. Granite landed in the back seat, thank god, but Brick and Wrecker hit the parking lot. Wrecker popped apart, but plastic Brick bounced and didn't even have a scratch or a paint chip! Whew! More plastic figs please!
  6. Is that just me? Sometimes I read the fluff for a fig and see a disconnect. Granite was like that for me.
  7. Wow. I haven't see this much love for Granite on this forum in like ... ever. Just to hear that people think she's okay, but not able to make the cut on the tough choices for tournament 10 is a ray of bright sunshine.

    Granite should have Protective Instinct - Discuss

    Right now, she's a condition and damage sponge, not as much a tar pit, which is one reason why fast teams are her weakness. Anything thrown at her, is one less thing thrown at your heavy lifters. So when a fast team doesn't bother with engaging her and thus don't take the bait, they not only stay out of her reach but also don't waste an action/CP doing so. And so she is situational piece. And as Mason players, we are not fans of situational pieces. I also think that SF loves to make the Masons into puzzle pieces. They offer us up a piece that's a tool box, but don't spell out how to use the tools, letting the coaches to figure out what they had planned. It sort of frustrates us coaches since other teams usually have more straightforward designs. Then again, from Granite's fluff, I envisioned her to be much more like Hearth from Blacksmiths than what we got.

    No love for Rookie Chisel?

    No comments on Rookie Chisel? I find it interesting that one of the versions of her had sportsmanship on the back of her card.

    Let's talk : Cast

    I just wish I could get her and Flint on a team as a themed "You poor boys" team.
  11. https://photos.app.goo.gl/Pq6gsVDY04RtxXDh1 It was sad. The Masons held the game from a Turn one goal, 4-0, then 6-0, then 8-4. With the cat making the score! https://photos.app.goo.gl/AiyYnLgmK1FtoA7p2 After that, the cat scored again, followed by Chaska scoring for the win. But then the hunters had
  12. This was an ugly game Escalation game where the Masons were not very Mason like. But they won, 8 to 5 Hammer, Wrecker, Mallet and Flint took on Ballista, Mother, Hoist and Rachet. It was pretty much every Mason for themselves without much synergy or support. The Engineers did a great job of deadbolting and positioning themselves to do a goal and a Wrecker take-out. But a returning Wrecker kept Ballista distracted as Mallet knocked down a ball-carrying Hoist. When the fumble landed in Mallet's lap, it was all said and done. That's because Flint had been advancing up the field to eventually receive Mallet's pass then make both late game goals, bringing the team from 0-5 to 8-5 in the last two turns.

    Masons Decimate

    LOL. That is how I painted my Union picks so they would match my team.

    Masons Decimate

    Duel wielding fencer to hammer smasher. There's no real visual tie in to the previous model. The model itself looks cool, though. If they change her up to match her new look, I bet I will feel frustrated. We won't get the model we "fought" for and she'll essentially be a new Masons model. Which with Mason's you never know what sort of puzzle you'll get with a new character.

    Cosset Cut To The Quick

    The Mason went in for a quick surgical strike of a game, an eight pointer, with Honor, Brick, Marbles, Flint, Tower and Mallet (with a quick proxy by a Chisel fig until he dried enough to be put on the board and finish the set.) They play against the Morts (Ob, Silence, Graves, Dirge, Cosset and Casket.) TL;DR: Masons won 9-4. The Masons received with a classic Brick/Marbles formation with Tower in between to give anyone second thoughts about getting close. Woof! Sun was in the Mason eyes in that pic. Tower gets the ball, but Ob Puppets him and it leads to Silence playing keep away. But on the other hand, Graves comes up to add some hurt to Tower. But the coach's dice fail him. Tower merely grins, spits blood out of his mouth, and then does a beat'em and a shuffle'em with Graves until he's in the scrum. Now here you'd think that Honor was a bit too far away, but she just perfect in helping support both the take down for Graves, which leaves a space open for Flint who caught the ball after Silence and Ob made the goal. Score is 2-4. Brick goes for Dirge and the score is 3-4. Flint makes his goal with ease, putting Masons up to 7-4. Now Honor comes in, full force with help from Marbles and Mallet. The three of them make Cosset wish she had been a little less crazy this time. And thus the final score of 9-4.
