Cult of the Burning Man image Previews

Recommended Posts

Edit: Wyrd has a much better organized viewing of all the renders at this link here:

From the Allegiance video...the models fit very well with the weird aesthetic stuff from Malifaux.

I think the Cult is beating Abyssinia for me now, between the small glimpse of the rules we saw and the amazingly detailed models these guys seem great!  I can't wait to hop all over the place with the portals mechanic :) Does anyone have an idea how the rule "The Burning Man Watches From Above" would work?  I'm assuming it's any time an Ace goes to the discard pile (flipped, cheated, discarded) then you get a Shaken Token?  That seems like you should reliably get a Glory a turn, right?  I assume Glory only lasts one turn then?

The only one I don't really like is Adeodatos. The rest are like a cool mix of Insidious Nightmares and Darkened. Stalking Portals look awesome.

One thing I think should really be pointed out is that while all other shown units so far have 50% or higher unique sculpts for their units (5/9, 3/6), The Warped actually have 100% unique sculpts (9/9)!  Just proves the Cult is the best :D 

(not a great sized image of them, but here they all are!)

I do like how each of the warped are different from each other. Feels very thematic.

Not a huge fan of the cult aesthic as a whole, I tend to prefer more ordered and noble looking designs. 

But Gorysche is amazing. Absolutely amazing.

I am so torn between the Cult and Gibbering Hordes, to be honest. I love the underwater theme but the Gorysche really is the best looking Titan. I also really want to see/learn more about Fenton Brahms and the ECB Black Ops

I was torn between Abyssinia and the Cult all up until actually seeing the full unit sculpts.  So much variety in each unit won me over 1000% :D And I agree Cinnamon Bear, I really want to know more about the rest of the Cult models!  We've seen (at least in part) 6 cards for the 10 revealed models, and of the remaining the ECB Black Ops has me really curious as to what they do in the Cult.  They seem a little more organized(?) than the rest of the mad rabble.

I suddenly really wish there was a Burning Man faction in Malifaux too. I think the Gorysche alone is swinging me into the cult's direction despite my love of the ocean and sea monsters. I guess I could get both but then I'd feel like I was missing a "normal"-ish faction for demoing.

I think Neverborn and Jacob Lynchs theme are really comparable in terms of Malifaux but in terms of overlap I think its perfect.

I'm not that interested in either of those, but I like the Burning Man models and theme, so I guess thats just my taste.
