    First turn

    Hunters: Wrong or right I always try to play on one side of the field. So when I'm kicking off I tend to deploy towards one edge with maybe 1 model near the middle. Normally kick off with The Ron when I want to get him up the field and in range for a pinned/AttK and get that control/momentum game turning. If I'm playing against more quishly/fast team I might switch out The Ron for Seenah for a potential quick KO or Chaska's slow self to get some snare coverage out early in the round before teams have a chance to battery momentum. With Skatha teams I tend to kick off with Minvera to get harriers deeper into my opponent's side of the pitch. Ultimately I'm choosing my kicker depending on the terrain on the pitch and if I can start the Hunter's control game as quick as possible.

    Gringo's Guilds

    Hey ya'll, With the kid off to school and my mystery box arriving last week I finally have the opportunity to get some painting done. Rest of my original Hunters: https://imgur.com/a/WLruM And Anvil for good measure.

    Finished up Fahad and Zalora. Also made some trap markers and a goalpost.

    Favorite/Least Favorite Champion?

    Really liked Grimshalla until the redesign. So Rattlebone took over as favorite. Titus is the least favorite due to his design being so forgetful.

    Season 4 Hunter Primers

    " I’m going to start off talking with Seenah. He no longer hugs players, but it now rips players faces off without breaking a sweat. " She* Everything else was on point.

    Minor League Rules

    Many sports have modified rules for college/club/semi-pro levels. Basketball the game time is shortened and broken into half instead of quarters. Baseball tends to play on slightly smaller fields, hockey the goals are slightly smaller in some leagues, college football kicks off from a different yard line and had completely different overtime rules, etc.. With more and more minor guides beginning released it would be neat if we can have some rules for minor vs minor guild leagues.

    S4 Skatha

    Played a couple games with Skatha this weekend. Wow. Her legendary, BotMG bouncing over to an eye spy + harrier + crowd out princess, dealing a M3 and a take-out and a Snowball goal, then activating Chaska getting a BB take out on Boar and a snapshot goal to Skatha won me a game. Went from 4 - 6 to 12 - 6 real quick. Getting all the wins I can now before the nerf bat comes a swingin'.

    Suggestion for next year's Draft

    What problem?

    Suggestion for next year's Draft

    I like the draft idea but would like it to be focused within the guilds themselves. Ideas: New Captain Model. Players vote for an existing model in their guild of choice to be promoted to a captain. New mascot. Team can vote between a selection of mascots for their guild. New model to play up and down between minor and major guild.
  10. Does anyone have an upcoming paint competition in the Display Cabinet planned? Haven't seen a competition since last year's winter comp.

    Resolving results for an Attack

    So, Fahad gets a happy birthday and quad wraps. I choose T, M<2, M<2, 1 as my results. Those trigger as a T<<5 that generates 2 momentum. Correct?
  12. Results are in. Edge is coming to the Hunters.

    Hunter Player Summaries

    Skatha Good into: anything //Risky into: ??? With high mobility and the ability to improve teammates mobility with fast ground and additional dodge results Skatha adds a surprising amount of repositioning to the field. Take Skatha into teams that thrive on control or have difficulties switching strategies mid turn. Skatha is strong in the Hunter mirror. Skatha is versatile that she is good with any amount of influence allocated to her. Remember to place your fast ground at the start of her activation and that it can be used by your opponent. With a full stack of influence she can look to Cold Snap a target and easily generate an handful of momentum if not just handout BotMG to her full team or herself multiple times with janky dodging up the pitch for a goal run. Dancing bear in the middle of the pitch or helping her get out of a bad crowd out is dynamite. With 2 influence Skatha always as access to a momentous <<< or a momentous T<< on the first column making her a one of the best ball retrievers in the game. 3-0 games are not out of the question for a Skatha team. Also taking out a mascot is viable due to her ability to score 1 VP with her snowball.

    Seenah Rookie Cards

    That's the issue; we can't.

    Traps mechanics changing.

    Make them playbook results only like More Teeth and I can be talked into this.

    Traps mechanics changing.

    Or an aura. Traps triggered with 1inch of this model also cause the bleed condition. . . The traps are all the same but Jaecar he can use them differently.

    Seenah Rookie Cards

    Agreed. There is a line when it comes to exclusives; does it change the game? If it is game changing then limiting it is a bad idea. If it is not game changing or is just cosmetic then it is fair game in my opinion. An exclusive pitch, dice or luxury items like widgets totally fair game. Rookie model and cards that can only be bought at a con is frustrating and a negative play experience.

    Traps mechanics changing.

    Your post brought to life the idea of a new person getting into the game and only picking up the Sun Father box and only having a trap marker that is useless would be a bummer. Myself having Chaska and vMinx was blind to this fact. The Farmers have harvest markers that are just cardboard punch outs and are all the same. You can look at it as the Hunters have 3 planter models now (our plants just lowers your defense and bite) and it aligns with the other marker laying guild in single rule and generic markers. I also feel as you are underselling how good snare is as a condition. -1 DEF quickly turns into -2 DEF with a followup KD. Add in Isolated Target and very powerful character plays and models just melt or become all but ineffective. There is still room to have cleaver placement with traps. Unavoidable 9 dmg Boombox is a thing.

    Some updates and proper imgur links. RIP broken urls. Chaska and Egret Jaecar laying some power cables. and the Goth Queen, Skatha. The body is the Queen Severa model from Zombicide.

    Thoughts on Playing for Takeouts?

    I normally allocate two to Minvera from turn two onward. I tend to have two blessings with Theron and Minx to dole out so her activation normally goes second or third, drops a harrier with blessing then goes in and knocks down two models or KD and an eye spy on one. Eye Spy + crowd out giving Fahad 10 TAC on his charge easily wrapping twice is just good. I kind of work in two groupings. Each team of three looking to get a takeout each turn. Theron, Minerva, Fahad: Theron goes in pins or AttKs, gets snare on a target or two. Minvera harriers, KD and/or eye spy. Fahad goes in for the kill with snared and harrier easily getting 10-12 damage on the free charge. Minx, Chaska, Seenah: Minx engages, drops an trap, look to Mark for Death, blessings Chaska. Chaska drops a trap, boomboxes and/or generates momentum. Bear comes in and does clean up. When it works it is beautiful.

    Struggling...help needed

    Hit things with Sledge really, really hard. But any additional info you can give will be helpful in the diagnosis. Do you always seem to be just out of position? Are you relying on character plays too much? Do you never seem to have the right amount of influence? Is there a plan to your activation order? Are you losing on the draft (if you are drafting)?
