14ss? thats about 2-3 models. Even if its legal its really not going to work. Masters are only allowed at 25+ ss I think.
We're playing small 35ss games at the moment. Crew box plus a few extra ss generally. Normal games are 50ss and im alreadys tarting to feel constrained at 35.

What have you got in your crew then?

For example my Lady J box is

Lady J - 0ss
The Judge - 9ss
Scales - 3 ss
3 x Death Marshals 18ss

Total = 30 ss

I usually add a few upgrades to get to 35.

OK I see Vengefull Spirits crew box, very strange.

Here's a unboxing write up for it - http://gmortschaotica.blogspot.co.uk/20 ... geful.html

I'm sure people will be happy to play you, not sure how well you'll fare though as you'll be at a significant points disadvantage. May want to pick up a few extra models. I guess the fact that she summons 1/2 the box makes it light pts wise.

Just reading aboutthese unboxing starter sets it looks like you have to pay for your soul stones.

You get whatever your leaders cache value is for free. You can then buy extras up to a maximum of 7

All soul stones can be used by any master or henchman in your crew. Or to reflip initiative or buy cards.

Your leaders soulstone cache creates the initial soulstone pool which then you can increase up to 7. So lady j contributes 4 to the soulstone pool, you can the send 3pts to ingress that to 7 if you want. Only restriction on who can use that pool is that they must have the master or henchman trait

Did an element order. Went on looking to add some combat goodness to my crew. Took a complete left turn and somehow ended up buying yan lo. Not sure what happened I'm in a bit of a daze I think I need a lie down. This is going to be like infinity all over again haha
