    Upgrades for Ulix?

    This. Husbandry is just flat out mandatory (in so far as anything can be mandatory here). I mean.....I suppose you could play him without summoning pigs? Pig Midwife is also just too good to pass up.

    What's the deal with Alt Lenny?

    Looks like various gremlin families have gussied him up to look very officious/impressive. As for the model: regardless what you think of Lenny, comes with an amazing piglet model, $25 might be steep for a piglet.... But....I mean.... LOOK at it!

    Perfect! Thanks for clarifying (both questions). So basically it's an alt Guild Guard.🤣

    Backdraft box models

    Sounds like they're just standalone story encounter boxes like the Creative Taxidermy, Crossroads Seven, etc. and just happen to contain models from a pair of factions.

    Sweet! Love the alts. I think I'm glad to hear that Wave 6 isn't coming just yet. One question: I didn't see a price for the Gremlin Nightmare Ulix box? Is that deliberate? If not can we get a price on that box? Edit: Another question: I just noticed what appears to be "sleeping" gremlin at the hoofs of "Old Major"? What's going on with that? Did we get another alt Bayou who has imbibed too much 'shine?

    Monday Preview - GenCon Nightmare Crew

    So Broney (Ulix), Mr Ed (Old Major)....and 4 Horse-lets (Piglets)? Penelope in there somewhere? Maybe the horse with the hat? Or maybe it's Penelope and the 3 Wild Ponies (Wild Boars)? Edit: And if this is just a straight port of the original Ulix crew box, can we expect Nightmare piglets and a Nightmare War Pig 'a la' last year's Nightmare Hamelin?

    Iron Piglet

    Brewsmaster would struggle significantly I think. I just finished soloing him for six months and there's a somewhat narrow band of strategies and schemes that work well for him. He also relies pretty heavily on either poison or having powerful beaters to order around. The one-and-done requirement for non master models hurts him a bit.

    Nightmare Crew Box

    My guess is Som'er will be the nightmare box. But that is literally a stab in the dark. I'll be really disappointed if it's Zoraida, but beyond that I don't really have a preference. Maybe Mah cause I don't own her yet?

    Does Ulix need to go whole hog?

    I also had pretty good results with not summoning the War Pig and focusing on summoning Piglets...I just thought that's because I was terrible and wasn't playing it right! I will also echo your vote for The Sow and Old Major. Maybe even Sammy to hold the Hunting Bow? Maybe the problem with that is that it starts to get into a territory where its hard for Ludvig to just dip his toe into Gremlins by way of Pigs.

    Does Ulix need to go whole hog?

    I started Malifaux with Ulix and my collection was almost entirely pigs for a while. Slop Haulers are a pretty essential edition I'd say. If your just going to pick up Ulix casually you could do just fine with his box, some piglets, maybe a war pig and slop haulers.

    Earthside Echo... Amazing!

    The description of the Hordes "invasion" makes me think some of Secret Weapons 120mm city street/ruins bases covered with water effect would make great tide pools!
