So, Lucius, and his totem The Scribe are duel faction Guild and Neverborn. Everything else I'm going to show you today is a Guild model. Now, Lucius has an upgrade which lets him hire 0-4 Guardsmen and Mimics out of faction. My philosophy for collecting my Malifaux miniatures has been to get everything that has Neverborn faction, but to be selective about the non-neverborn items I pick up.
So I'm not going to definitely buy every out of faction Guardsman, Mimic, Puppet, Swampfeind, enthral target or mercenary. So I have included some thoughts about the utility of some of the units below.
I thought I would briefly talk about the other Guardsman units.
AustringerLucius specifically can't buff these guys. I know a lot of Guild players say they are basically the best unit ever but I can't bring myself to invest in something which specifically has less synergy then everything else.
Guild HoundNo for so many reasons. You could only take four, if you didn't take any other guild stuff, and neverborn hounds are coming soon. And, the Corrupted hounds are actually better with Lucius.
Guild Seargent Bleagh. Just not worth one of the you-only-get-four slots.
WardenYes, I'm going to get some of these when they come out. These are excellent minions, and they have bonuses against terror checks, so they can run without a Lawyer. But... it's hard to get all these models knowing you can only use four at a time.
Master QueegSo much potential synergy with Lucius. But, it's a non minion. But... It could be so good. On the fence. May have to pick this up... on the fence.
Mounted GuardAgain, these look like they could be good. But again, four slots. four. Not sure I can justify this one.
Right. What is next.
Well, I have sort of run out of hobby budget for a little while. So probably, Spawn Mother and Gupps and Guild Wardens when they come out and the end of the month.
But I do have a bid running on Ebay, so perhaps a mystery item.
