  1. What do we need from a minor guild?

    Most people think Brewers. My local Alchemist desperately wants Dirty Knives, and is hoping that they’ll arrive in the hands of vCalculus. I’d like to see a Magician’s Guild with heaps of smoke bombs, blind and unpredictable movement, but not much in the way of condition damage.
  2. Squeak - I'm so confused how to use him

    Ah true. My bad.
  3. Squeak - I'm so confused how to use him

    Bonus points if you’ve got “Kick ‘em when they’re down” in play to automatically take out Squeak’s target (Tough Hide, Clone etc notwithstanding). You pick up 3 Inf from the rat, inform your opponent that their model has taken 9 damage and cackle madly.
  4. Faithful of Solthesius in May

    Every time I use Brisket I score at least one goal “With Aplomb”.
  5. Constructing your new Hunter 10.

    Gotta saying I’m pretty keen to try a quad Boom Box against a target in a Harrier. Just once.
  6. Mascot Time! Frelsi

    Eagles aren’t the fastest birds in sky. Smaller birds are often faster and more manoeuvrable, both to evade them and to harry them when they want to chase them away.

    I know right? If there’s one thing Monks did a lot of, it was playing football. When they weren’t praying, copying religious texts, teaching, helping the poor, tending the sick, washing, cooking, farming and presumably eating and sleeping, it was just football, football, football. 😀
  8. Mataagi, first cross guild player spoiled

    Correct. That hadn’t even occurred to me.
  9. The Captain: Devana

    Don’t forget the Def penalty for dirty knives!
  10. The Captain: Devana

    I am a happy Falconer. What an amazing model.
  11. What AoE marker do you use for alchemists?

    Personally I’d always go for neoprene because I’d hate to damage someone’s model by putting a plastic or metal ring. I can just see the paint chipping, or a fine joint snapping (Minx’s arms for example).
  12. Rage into Smoke - Do you take Grace?

    Good points. One thing I have found is that Decimate is amazing with the “Kick ‘Em When They’re Down” game plan. I’ve had it done to me a number of times (my regular Alchemist player generally uses something along the lines of Smoke, Flask, Vitriol, Compound, vKat/oKat and Decimate).
  13. Rage into Smoke - Do you take Grace?

    I wouldn’t be trying to kill the ball. I’d be trying to score as fast as possible and take out a few people on the way. I’d definitely be keeping Decimate. I think you could afford to swap Gutter for Grace. I wouldn’t want to lose Benediction’s Impart Wisdom when using Rage. Grace really turns Mist’s speed up and brings Purity and her Inf efficiency as well.

    Decimate and Gutter are solid choices against pretty much anyone. They’re fast, with high Tac. Both are quite capable of laying down the hurt or retrieving a ball, and don’t make terrible strikers if the situation arises. Speaking of strikers, Mist is a striker beyond compare, particularly if you’ve got a Solthecian to trigger his Motivated (Solthecian) trait for the Shadow Like dodge. He doesn’t mind attacking someone hiding in cover (he gains +2 Tac, for a +1 Tac net result), and starting his advance in cover just makes him faster again. Harry isn’t bad but I think Benediction is better. Harry’s Inspiring Hat is a handy trait to have, and his 2” melee and early playbook pushes are great, but he is quite easy to hit and only has 1 armour. Compare this to Benediction, who has an extra armour point, the same early pushes and triggers Mist’s Shadow Like, whilst also providing excellent support with the CPs Braced and Stand Firm and the traits Impart Wisdom and Poised. Regenerate is a bonus. Personally, I love Blackheart. He’s great fun to use. He isn’t as fighty as Rage or as footbally as Brisket, but combines elements of both. He has a cracking Legendary Play and a fantastic playbook, along with some handy CPs and Shadow Like. His 2” melee is great and although he has a fairly low Def 3, he has 2 armour to offset that.
  15. Considering dabbling with the Union

    You could go in any number of directions. Track down a Blackheart model and your choice of mascot, and with those 4 models you’ve got a footballing team which doesn’t mind taking out a few of the opposition on the way. Pick up Brisket, and either Pride or Coin and you’ll have a good, fast footballing team which can still pick up plenty of momentous damage with Decimate and Gutter. Grab the Veteran Rage box and you’ll have a team which is suddenly geared very well to fighting the opposition, with Strongbox and Rage boosting the fighting power of your team. Snakeskin is good in a V Rage team - she’s amazing for holding onto the ball with Nimble, Clone and Shadowlike and is certainly fast enough to score some goals herself. If you pick up the Solthecius boxed set you’ll two of Mist and 2 of Harry (though in Harry’s case they’re different sculpts), but you’ll get S Brisket, Pride, Grace and Benediction as well. Seasoned spigot and Veteran Fangtooth aren’t too far away either.
