    Galvanic Mysteries posse

    Lol, my bad. In that case why not replace her with an Apex Hellion?

    But Mantis isn't able to fly unfortunately. Those things on her back are a second pair of arms with attached blades. I guess those are the fileting blades depicted on her statcard.

    Galvanic Mysteries posse

    Is there anything wrong with that purpose for Mantis? I find that all of the factions have a flight model or two that really just seems to excel at that. It is a game breaker if both sides clash over a single point. You can have your 18" zip over to the other point and hold it seeing if they'll divide the forces.

    Galvanic Mysteries posse

    Hello fellow gunslingers! Since our player group started a slow-grow newbie campaign i decided to take part with the venerable Countess' own monster mash posse We had to build a list around a posse set and (if possible pointswise) include all models in the box up to 1000pts. Over time we're allowed to grow our posses up to 1250pts and 1500 pts towards the end. The overall list is relatively slow with mostly Q5 and below average shooting on two models (Mantis & Creation V), that's why i tried to fill the gap with a slightly faster unit. Unfortunately the Abomination Seekers and Widowers lack the <Creation> rule and so does the Apex Hellion. So i decided to use a Nazombu Snake, she's a bit faster with Q7 and has the <Trailfinder> rule which allows me to make up some ground before the game even begins. That way, my current list looks like the following: Enlightened Galvanic Mysteries Theme Posse: Boss: Augusta Byron - 255pts Slot 1: Mantis - 125pts Slot 2: Creation V - 170pts Slot 3: Creation XIII - 160 pts Slot 4: Nazombu Snake - 115pts Slot 5: Creation X - 155pts --- 980pts I'm currently finding out how to use each unit on their own and in combination together. In the first two games (1st against Ranger Showboat posse, 2nd against Armoured Justice posse) i let the Nazombu Snake cover one flank while Augusta and Creation X & XIII marched the other side of the board up. Both Creation V (only Q4) and Mantis captured objectives either in my table-half or in the center and watched out for enemies with their ranged weaponry. For only 115 points the Nazombu Snake can be scary as hell, at least for my opponent. It's a great fire magnet that also packs a punch in melee She killed Rabecca Copelie and stopped a unit of 5 Minutemen from capturing an objective in the first game and killed a unit of two gundogs while standing next to an objective and earning me points in 5 rounds in the second game. Meanwhile my "Creation-Deathstar" slowly marched in both games towards the enemy and killed everything in their way, surviving because of their Grit 6, <Tough> provided by Augusta, the <Creation> rule and good use of cover. In the first game they killed Calamity Jane, Grace Myrtle, a unit of 5 Veteran Rangers and teared apart Wild Bill Hickok (with PRC-8 on Creation X), where in the second game two units of 3 Lawbots and a unit of 2 Gun Dogs fell under their blades. So far so good, but what really bothers me is that i can't find a use for Mantis and Creation V besides standing at a mission objective and doing nothing else. I know that victory points are actually the most important thing to earn in order to win, but if the worst case happens and my deathstar slowly breaks apart i just want to know what both units can do to still secure my victory. In addition i'm looking at a couple of units with which i could expand my posse in the next step a couple of weeks ahead, but most importantly to fill the 6th posse slot in order to gain the posse bonus. Right now i'm specifically looking at the scary but mostly independent working Creation VII and onto Francis Tumblety, where the latter one would provide me with an additional fortune chip and another unit with the <Carpathogen> rule.

    I hope the cyborg monsters are only Burson. Doesn't strike me as a Sturgeon move. A Darwinist faction could work as part if the enlightened.
  13. Burson_Carpathian

    Warrior Nation

    Plus, if we are going to see sea-monsters they'd be more likely fielded by the Enlightened. There were even already some concept arts of construct-style wales. I'm not saying that it would rule out any Warrior Nation affiliated monster-units, but i guess there would be something coming out for the Enlightened before that.
  14. Overread

    Warrior Nation

    Aye, though the sea-scale is still very much of a good size - however if we were to get sea-monsters; whilst I'm totally up for them in Dystopian Wars; they'd just make me want to see Uncharted return to the seas even more (and I'm convinced that IF we see Uncharted return it won't be for years and years yet sadly. Heck its been a year* or more and we are only just getting near Dystopian Wars hitting the high seas once more - and Firestorm after that at some unknown point in time. So I'd wager it will take several years to get those titles running smooth before they'll have attention and time to fit in Uncharted (if they decide too, they can always step away and say - no we're ok where we are we don't need another title). Of course if popularity of the series launches strong and we, as a community, can grow it then improved sales and ships on sea and space flying off shelves could give the investment opportunity for faster turn around! *Feels like a year, might be longer or shorter I honestly don't recall when Spartan died.
  15. RuleBritannia

    Warrior Nation

    I think the 15mm spin off would presumably be the place for Kaiju, but the lamented scale shift means less room for fitting them in classic Dwars.
  16. Overread

    Warrior Nation

    Yep though in the DW world it was leaning well toward advance and military use of them and thus mutant/machine monsters. Though as I recall we never saw any models, not even design concepts from SG. Who knows it might be buried in the stuff that WC got a hold of, but otherwise we never saw anything. That said WWX has the ideal scale for introducing such a faction, actually better than Dystopian Wars. Animals fit more easily into 35mm in general; unless you go for animal shaped machines (of which we did get a few before the end like the flying dragon)
  17. skaroreg

    Warrior Nation

    well in WWX it is less science and more "power of the spirit" but it would be interesting to see that influence Darwin. WWX already has Tesla Edison and Eifel so why not have Darwin? I mean, he would at least be interested in why there would suddenly be a giant fire breathing Eagle in America.
  18. RuleBritannia

    Warrior Nation

    Giant animals were the purvey of Darwin in classic DWars fluff, with an island of science monsters.
  19. skaroreg

    Warrior Nation

    So, as I am a Warrior Nation player in WWX I am wondering, will there be a faction for them/affiliated with them in either Dystopian Wars or Armored Clash? Because honestly, after reading the fluff I want giant elephants and other Animals from around the world that might represent the various parts of the warrior nation from around the world (think also kangaroos jumping on tanks and kicking infantry units) I have a lot of head canon for this now and was just wondering where Warrior Nation will fit in. I know it is early in development yet but I was curious.

    "replace"

    Thanks Chris, can we get that official in the rule book or FAQ so this way there is not room to debate it? That would be helpful
  21. Warcradle Chris

    "replace"

    The tainted model is replaced by the hex beast replace it so that the centre point is in the same place. All previous engagements should remain. If the tainted model was engaged replace the model in such a way as to keep engagements and not move any other models. If that is not possible the owning player should move the fewest number of models by the shortest distance in order to fit the new base over the old.

    Cor Caroli trait and piercing

    great clarification as I believed from the wording that they could gain the conditions from a pierce 3 or greater.
  23. skaroreg

    "replace"

    ok, so here is my general follow up to that question. What in the rules tells us that "replace" means the center of the old model and the center of the new model must be the same point? The problem is if you are going to be getting into this game and want to play more than just super friendly games this needs to be clearer. for example Malifaux, which has TONS of wording issues in its current editon, when a situation like this occurs you place the new model base to base with the old one. if it does not fit, you do not get to put it out. that covers 99% of the situations. "replace" with no other information on what "replace" means leave way too much wiggle room. Putting a definition of what replace means will solve the majority of potential issues with it. and yes, there are other examples of using least disturbance, but there is no evidence that i have found in the rule book that they would apply to this situation, I mean even saying something like "replace the model with the new models base within the footprint of the base of the old model. use least resistence if other models are in the way, if the model can not be placed it does not enter play" or something like that. it covers most of what will happen because even if you are center to center a small base model in melee cant be center to center with the new model. As of right now, anything related to how "replace" works is fully speculation because of the lack of a game definition of replace. I only push on these things because I enjoy the game and want the rules clear. I am also glad facebook cleared up the crit fail in the building

    "replace"

    For the most part the only time this would be an issue is if the original model has a smaller base and is in base to base contact with another model. Otherwise it would be exactly as it says, You literally replace the model where it stands with another model (center point of the old model matches the center point of the new model) But in the case of the original model being a smaller base and in base to base contact with another model or terrain then there are plenty of examples within the rules to follow a path of least resistance in placement. Obviously there are going to be WAY to many edge case scenarios for them to adequately describe every situation with a specific always correct answer. but who knows, Warcradle may have a better answer.
  26. skaroreg

    "replace"

    In the rules for Hex Beast it says to replace the model with a hex beast. in game terms, what does replace mean? is it Base to Base contact? is it anywhere in the footprint? do you path of least resistance models around it if the model turning into a Hex beast is a smaller base? Some FAQ or additional wording on this would help clear things up especially for competitive play where you do not want to have these types of vague wordings.
