So, a mate at work has asked me to grab him a Kaeris box set when I put my gencon order through shortly...

After the initial 24SS in the box, what would people suggest (specifically aiming at 35SS for Skulls in Oct)? I thought either Joss (who I think is awesome - but leaves him with 7SS, so a wasted 2SS), or 3 miners (leaving him a cache of 4SS).

I think the idea is a cheap start up - as I am going to be demo-ing the game mechanics at work in the next couple of weeks, he isn't even sure if he is going to like it, but likes the fluff and the look...

So battle half won!!

Anyways, what are peoples thoughts on a step up for Kaeris?

Kieris has not alot of choice on her own as a crew leader
Her box comes with Gunsmiths which are awsome and the fire gamen have thier uses but usally used as suicide troops to explode and hand out some burn tokens early
Remember that when she is leading she can only hire other M&SU members. so things like Union Miners and Soulstone miner are the few additions, as well as Iggy.

The only way around this is to have another master and have her as a henchman, this will remove the M&SU restriction. so you could add things like a Student of conflict or Arcane effigy
as to what master to go to for future expantion you can go wrong with any of the other Arcanists because Kieris is that good

Bear in mind also that there's a new book coming out in like a week with a host of new stuff. Kaeris is surely going to get some new goodies.

Arcane Effigy is a SF: Doll. You can't have more than one special forces group in your crew so the effigy is out.

Personally, after the box I'd go for Iggy, followed by the soulstone miner, Johan and the union miners.

And with Gencon coming up, keep an eye on the arcanist releases. Some of those models look likely to either be allowed in a kaeris crew, or would value having kaeris as a henchman. Or at least I hope they will. ;)

yeah I forgot about that.

I do hope the book 4 stuff is M&SU but could also be ten thunders.. lets hope for both :P

Willie from book 4 has been spoiled and hes an MS&U member so able to be hired by Kaeris and the Arcanist Rail Worker crew certainly look the part plus you have miners as well. Thats a lot to choose from with only a couple of purchases

Is the large steampunk arachnid a good choice for Kaeris? I haven't used her yet and opted for this for the starter box league, but this thread is making me regret my choice.

The Large Arachnid is a good choice for her as it ignores armour so can help against some bad matchups plus it is a cheap model (ss cost) at only 5ss and its durable too.
