The errata for Hamelin will be released very very soon.

I will post it here as well as the links to revised pdf cards as soon as I can.

Its not bad actually Simmo, they look well thought out and basically remove some of the auto lose scenarios from the games against certain crews and make him a LOT quicker to play as well.

hahaha

i am sure it will be fine, i just hope he does not lose his style of play.

he has loads of auto-lose missions mostly becauase if he dies everything becomes insignificant in his crew, but that was the fun

There will reason to take Nix now, style of play isnt really affected and having a few Stolen on hand will be handy as well.

When was there ever a reason not to take Nix? He's currently unbelievably powerful. o_O

How did Hamelin ever die? I think I lost him once in all the games I've played with him, and that was when his resurrection only worked when the Stolen were nearby, to a pre-nerf Dreamer. Nothing else has ever come close.

I've never considered any mission with him to be an auto-lose - and there are far too many that are auto-win.

I'm eagerly awaiting the errata so that I can put him on the table without feeling like a cheating bastard...

the problem with nix for me is its free VP for hamlen as you just frame him for murder knowing the opponant is going to take down nix..... cuz your often mad if you ignore nix.

but i will wait for the release of the adjustments. hopefully they take some of magic pockets ideas as they seemed well thought out.

Id rather take 3 rats and a soulstone or 3 desperate mercs and a soulstone than nix.

By auto lose, I meant that if Hamelin dies they are generally auto lose.

He is the greatest douche and I love playing him.

neverborn would love for ppl to take 3 desperate mercs for the free VP :P

Nix is awsome so much utility and the ability to lock and shutdown models and can slingshot hamlen about oh and the healing..

Why do desperate mercs work for anyone? I know the answer is supposed to be right there in the name, but c'mon, they can't be THAT desperate.

Yeah... I really don't think Wyrd anticipated just how many ways people would find to benefit from murdering their own crew members. I mean, they really should have seen it coming after what the Ressers did to all those dogs, but still...

And here it is

Just in time for the holidays we've completed the long-awaited (and, yes, overdue) errata for the Hamelin suite of models.

Outside of rewriting all of the models completely this was the batch of changes we felt keeps Hamelin's core concept and play style intact but closes loopholes and balances him thereby allowing players to place him on the table without feeling dirty or being chased out of the county.


Before you ask, yes, there WILL BE a PDF of the revised stat cards online in the next couple weeks, but in the meantime this errata is legal for all games.

Rather than clutter up this post with the inevitable discussion I'm closing the thread and opening a discussion thread below.


Image


HAMELIN
Replace text for Indiscriminant Void with: “When this model would be killed or sacrificed, sacrifice a friendly The Stolen within 3” of it instead. Heal all wounds and remove all effects on this model. This model receives -4 Ca until the end of the Encounter.


Replace text for Nihilism with: “Friendly models lose the Insignificant Characteristic while within 6” of this model.”


Replace Bully with Ruffian: “Ht 1, Harmless, Pitiful, and Insignificant enemy models targeting this model must win a Wp → 13 Duel or the Action fails.”


Fate is Meaningless: Change AP cost to (1)


Haunting Melody: Change Wp Duel to: Wp → 14



OBEDIENT WRETCH
No changes


STOLEN
Delete Abandon



NIX
Replace text for Nihilism with: “Friendly models lose the Insignificant Characteristic while within 6” of this model.”


Replace text for The Sweet Taste of Failure with: “This model heals 1 wound whenever an enemy model within 2” of it loses a Duel.”


RAT-CATCHER
Delete Insignificant


Add: Affinity [Hamelin the Plagued]: This model may be hired by Crews containing the indicated model.


Delete: (0) Slaughter Rats


Add: (0) Herd Rats: (Pulse)6. Malifaux Rats lose Slow.



MALIFAUX RAT
Delete Rabies, Instinctual, Impetuous, Hungry Rats


Add: “Get them Off!!”: An enemy model in base contact with three or more friendly Malifaux Rats receives -2 Df and -2 Wp.


Add: "They're Just Rats": This model may not be reduced to less than 1 Wd during a friendly model's activation. If this model would be killed while within Hazardous Terrain it is removed from the game.



HAMELIN, AVATAR OF CONTAGION

Replace text for Nihilism with: “Friendly models lose the Insignificant Characteristic while within 6” of this model.”






"And I heard him declare as he flew out of sight...'The Winged Sister is next, her Errata's in sight!"
