    Coming Back

    New to Morts this season, but have had 6-7 games (4 in tournament conditions), sitting at 50/50 win-loss right now. My current thoughts: Obulus is still Obby - great for a football game and messing with 1 opponent at a time. Scalpel has most of my wins, clock intensive, but can manipulate both teams to your advantage and guarantees a couple of takeouts. Bonesaw will pretty much score from anywhere, vHemlocke is great for adding to anyone's threat range. Graves in either form is good, Silence is crucial against teams that want a specific activation order. Cosset is a bit more survivable now. BP&M look like a lot of fun - used them once to great effect, but need more practice. Casket and Ghast are great for blunting charge-heavy teams like Butchers, Navs, etc. Take your mascot on preference, and depending on your squad choice - Vileswarm w/ vGraves, Dirge w/ Cosset or Silence. If you've access to Ratcatchers, then Skulk is very useful, haven't tried Pelage (but have been in the receiving end of her completely neutering Boar for most of a game!)

    The Fishvigators Set Sail

    Nice wee write up guys, looking forward to getting them on the table!

    Disease is a pain, but played 3, won 2 so far and learned that vHarmony is your friend. Smelling Salts is a life saver around the disease spreaders, and really helps keep you ahead on momentum. Hammer likes to beat on Rats, if you're neatly in the counter-charge bubble, suddenly Piper is less kean on jogging towards you. Flint doesn't really like Skulk as he struggles to get away, but he still makes a good place to park the ball if you can keep him away from Pelage. Stay away from the pitch side too as Piper can push you some obscene distance if he wants to.

    Veteran Harmony's Sword

    My Mallet is the Kick Off plastic one, he's a bit softer - plus I might occasionally over fill the case if I'm squeezing 3 teams in for travel - my own problem! 😉

    How do you store your minis? I have my GB teams in Feldherr Mini cases and haven't had any bother, other than a few wider pieces bending slightly (Mallet's mallet, Fillet's lower blade). A good storage solution may solve the issue

    Ratcatchers Launch Event With Butchers

    Nice write up sir!
  7. The Team formerly known as Stave is now Mid-Table-Chimps - we're aiming high! 😂
  8. Most likely Butchers, but aye, might be Masons, Fish, might even have my Farmers finished, Iain

    Farmers @ Vengeance 2018

    Don't think that Farmers were weak necessarily - my only 12-0 humping of V3 was at the hands of Thresher (combination of poor play by me, and a very good opponent). The Thresher-Tater-Millstone-Peck unit is still very difficult for some teams to unlock without range or control options, and Jack is still a fine place to hide the ball til you want to score
  10. Kraken could benefit from being our Tenderiser/Compound - if he's staying at 1 inf., then give him Rush Keeper or Goal Defence - make him useful in both Captains' set ups

    Caledonian Equinox Cup - 17th June

    Payment sent sir!
  12. Nice write up man, Fangers FTW! 🙂 Might have to try that out myself, tend to run Hemlocke for doubling down on Blind with her & the Octopus

    Would you guys be interested in my ramblings?

    Sounds good sir!

    Thoughts on a Tournament 10

    Similar to my initial tourney 10 - never sure about including Vet. Ox - he tends to grab me a goal every other game that he plays, but he's disappointing more often than not (probably more my play-style!). I think oBrisket might be the one to go - Dirty Knives is nice, but vBr brings the extra influence & buy-able dodge!

    Farmers Matchup?

    My limited experience into them has been to run Fillet and try to kill faster, but they're tough, no doubt! Fillet is fast enough to get back in if Thresher crushes her, can throw a bit of ranged damage - althought Millstone is a dick if paired with the death-chicken
