Yo, what up o wretched scum and villainy of the internets?
I’ve been learning the basics of Infinity and for all intents and purposes it’s around 137.36% different to how Malifaux plays. The main things I need to grasp is that I can opt to move->shoot but shoot before moving. Then there’s the facing shenanigans and the fact that quite a bit is private info. Since in Malifaux all info is public save for schemes (unless you’ve earned VP from them) it’s quite a different kettle of fish.
What kind of idiot puts fish in a kettle? The answer, is my kind of idiot.
Tonight’s fun filled adventure is taking place while a neighbour is having a massive party which involves a load of yelling descendants, loads of bad karaoke and horses if the stable trailer parked in the street is any indication of. Having felt disappointed in trying to paint a fusileer for Pan-O, one proudly and loudly declared “fuck it” and went to assemble some Malifaux stuffs.
The Malifaux stuffs in this instance is a nightmare edition of Tara’s Herald of Obliteration crew, traded for by a friend overseas 😀 in exchange for FILTHY RESSER SCUM models (As a primary Neverborn player, this is my stance on those who hire zombies and not monsters to do heavy lifting. The players are good, the faction is bs though). For a regular version of Tara’s crew, Rafkin and some guild autopsies (The only redeeming factor of the ressers is their use of dead guildies) The main difference between the NE and regular crew is the size of the (didn’t do) Nothing beast, Tara and her totem Karina. Unlife is hard when you’re an undead lesbian zombie mercenary who’s a herald for a Tyrant who literally obliterates things.
Anyhow, Tara is an interesting master as she can hire guild autopsies (from ressers) and death marshalls (from guild) with certain upgrades on her and Karina. When August hits, she’ll have a dedicated henchman in the Scion of the void, but her thematic crew is a bit limited to her crew box, plus or minus death marshalls (did some digging on the Dead of Winter campaign as it was before I stated in on Malifaux) and Aionus, who fits in via time manipulation. Additionally she can double the AP of a regular master should you wish it. Something to note is that the dual faction masters usually are X faction with a Y faction symbol. Example- McMourning, who works far better as a resser but can be used a guild master (he’s the guild’s coroner). Same with Lucius, who’s a guild master with a neverborn symbol (he’s a mimic).
The karaoke is getting really bad at this point so I’m going to leave off here with a photo of my dog- he’s an adoptee black labrador x red setter or something (he’s got a bit of red setter and kelpie in him along with the black lab) and is far healthier than when we adopted him. He’s been a part of the family for around 4 months now and no longer tries to leap the side gate and have adventures! around the suburbs.
His name is Panzer, which fits him (we didn’t name him that but it suits). He’s a social, lovable goofball who is far, far too inquisitive for his own good. He’s also a) a big sook and b) a big wuss.
In closing, ressers suck, neverborn 4 life 😛
