    Seasoned Spigot

    Yessss! Now you're talking!

    Seasoned Spigot

    Why would that be necessary? You mean to Quick Time in from vRage, then Red Fury? I was actually just assuming seaSpigot was engaging the ball carrier for whatever reason, but yes, you are right, there would be some difficult set up. And the 3 or 4 die snap shot is hardly a slam dunk. I guess I'm just wondering if that, plus his mom 2 on 3, and mom 3 on 5, and his super legit ball handling and controlling skills, might make him a worthy addition to vRage. Because I can totally see him on at least 5 of the 6 Union general scenarios (that is, kicking/receiving and the 3 captains). But, then again... I may not know what I'm talking about.

    Is it too janky to want to Red Fury seaSpigot, get a Ball's Gone, pass to a waiting Mist for a snap shot, then turn around and activate seaSpigot next to reacquire the ball and score?

    Veteran Chisel - no more speculation

    Ty ty. Had to be the case, but some of the wording in the write up made me question.

    Veteran Chisel - no more speculation

    You guys are crazy (NOW who's the Crazy one?). She's great. I can not wait to use her. And, from a story perspective - they did exactly what I had hoped. I don't know that I see her as any squishier than oChisel - same health, better defensive stats, and she doesn't tend to cut herself (though she will be on fire and poisoned more often, perhaps). Different roles entirely, though, I think. Question about Take One for the Team - some of the wording in the description made me wonder if you can could take a condition from a model ALREADY suffering it. Like, Flint was set afire first activation - can vChisel come within range and take his burning? Or must it be taken AS it's applied? I had always assumed Millstone could only take a condition as it was applied, but now I'm wondering.

    vSakana Rules Revealed

    Interesting. I wonder what they were referring to then... Thanks.

    vSakana Rules Revealed

    It occurred to me today, listening to a podcast, that you may indeed not be able to use BoC this way. This would take vSakana over his allotment of 3 INF for the turn - is that legal? I know it's legal if he GAINS an INF, but can he be allocated more than 3, regardless of how many he has on him at the time?

    vSakana Rules Revealed

    Ah, yes, I think you're right.

    vSakana Rules Revealed

    Interesting. I often used oSakana as a striker - this version isn't a striker. Yes, he's got 3/8 KICK and 6/8 MOV, but he has no native way to increase his speed. For vSakana to increase his speed, he must actually strike (different kind of strike) an opponent, and hit reasonably high on his book (though Bag of Coffers will help with that if it's required), as opposed to oSakana who either just needs to be in the right position on the field, or spend an INF. Also, the 3 INF cap is a bigger detriment to strikers than one might think, and Bag of Coffers won't alleviate that issue. I'm not saying I have a problem with vSakana - I really like his damage potential, his control aspects, and his use as a back-up goal threat. But he doesn't replace oSakana in every lineup for me. I will miss Weak Point, though. I think his biggest weakness, by far, is his name...

    Veteran Chisel

    Yeah... it does remind me of Honour's hammer. I haven't gotten my fingers on the rookie version yet. I liked the o version, but it was a bit fiddly (I never really like it when assembled parts completely block access to other areas). Assembled and painted, she's really nice.

    Veteran Chisel

    Ok, well, "looks like" might've been too specific. But the pose is nearly the same, with long weapon up on shoulder, feet planted roughly shoulder width apart, empty hand in line with legs at the side, next to the thigh. What I immediately noticed was the dangly ends of the sash from the belt. There are some other superficial similarities, such as the metallic chest piece, one shoulder with a guard, the metallic knee guards. I mean, yeah, he's got like ~20kg on her, and his head is more up than hers, but her artwork definitely looks Sakana inspired. I also still don't see any chisels, unless they're behind her like Honour - Chisel has no chisels. And she's also carrying another single handed hammer on her hip.

    V. Honour is Stronger Than You Think

    It was - he bitched about it a couple of weeks ago. Alex largely let him rant, with just a few counterpoints. They all generally agreed with each other.

    Tell me she doesn't look like Sakana in that photo.

    First actual game with the Falconers

    I am in NO way criticizing your choice of actions to win the game - in fact, just the opposite. I'm saying I likely would've made the wrong decision in that position, assuming the 2 take outs were out of reach, and just tried to extend the turn. But the situation you describe w/ Ikaros is a perfect example of what I'm not his biggest fan yet, and why I hate Skulk (until I play Rats, then it's a different story).
