Bah, screw having an extended intro, this post is long enough. So in my continuing quest to paint and play ALL the Masters in Malifaux, it’s time for Dreamer!
In this game I was facing off against Paul Middlewick, who chose to bring Yan Lo out for the first time this edition.
My original Dreamer crew
The Paint Job
Oh, tiny pink piglet, whatever shall I do with you?
Despite being summoned to the table (giving him slow), Chompy he can put out a huge amount of damage thanks to his two great melee attacks and a variety of strong, damage-focused triggers, not the least of which is Onslaught (ie. extra attacks!). Restless Dreams also gives Chompy Melee Expert, which helps counter his Slow when summoned and further boosts his damage potential.
This is somewhat mitigated by the fact that Dreamer can keep summoning him, again and again throughout the match so long as he can keep hitting that Waking +4. So while he might die relatively easily, so long as Dreamer lives then it will really only slow the Chompy Pain-Train down.
My Alps and Daydreams, ready for summoning.
Dreamer the Summoner
Teddy. Need I say more?
