  1. I do not like the preassembled models at all. Personally think its a bad call and I hope Wyrd doesn't continue with the trend. In M2E each Master was defined by their limited upgrades and with few (no?) exceptions there was one option that was always better. I fear that the Titles system will have the same result, and I just don't like the notion of Ulix (or any Bayou Master) being the Jockey Master. The Jockey models are all over the place in terms of appearance and I don't think they make a visually appealing crew. Now....I recognize those are my opinions. And I think you're right that the design opportunity is interesting, but I'd rather see them start with a fresh Master.
  2. I'm a little concerned that one of the Titles for Bayou will be Jockey. I really really hope they don't just do the easy button answer with a Master like Ulix and make him the Jockey guy.
  3. Yeah I'm totally on board with that. What about a pseudo Marcus type theme where Ulix is a super Taxidermist and puts out upgrades: flying pigs, tunneling pigs, armored pigs, spectral pigs?, poison cloud pigs, pigs with spikes, FAST pigs, fire breathing pigs?
  4. For Ulix specifically, I have concerns about doing a "thematic" change without changing the keyword models. Regardless of how it's modified, if the new theme still involves summoning, in any capacity, people are going to whinge and moan. And based on Wyrd's errata in the last few years, I'm inclined to think that they won't be treating summoners kindly. So maybe what @Thatguy said is an option and we'll get a version of Ulix that sorta mirrors what he did back in 2E with the bow upgrade. But if his pigs are (allegedly) balanced around being summoned, then I'm not sure where that leaves those models if they're not also modified?
  5. Wong becomes dual faction Archanist with the Peformer keyword. I'm kidding.... Seriously though I have high hopes that they'll do something interesting with Brewmaster and Ulix. I feel like there's going to be a strong temptation to fall back on themes that were apparent in the M2E limited upgrades for each master. Ulix has to do something with pigs... What else is there since summoning seems like it's under "attack"?
  6. Previous editions of the game had a regular cycle of expansion waves with a book that accompanied each wave.
  7. The artwork for Yannic and one of the Riflemen look great! But the guy on the left...I dunno. His body position is just off. Maybe if these get released as plastic instead of pre-assembled I'd be more interested, but hard pass for now.
  8. I'll beat the drum on the pre-assembled model starter boxes again. Would love to see these models in plastic because there are more than a few that I really want to add to my collection. Is the Cadmus keyword the first one that's had the master box released after another keyword box? Not complaining, just interesting timing. Or have I missed the Cadmus preview? Curious to see what those renders look like.
  9. Yeah the clean up on TOS models was awful and I'll never repeat that. But I should follow suit with your last comment as well. Love the renders.
  10. If this is a starter set will there be a Henchman to act as a leader? The 3D renders look good! But seriously, Wyrd, please make this trend of preassembled short lived and give us these models in plastic. Again, love the renders but please let me do my own assembly.
  11. I am very disappointed. Certainly probably a pipe dream but I hope these models make their way into the normal Malifaux plastics. In my mind the preassembled models are a solution looking for a problem. The folks doing the assembly will never do the work with the care and precision that I want and I'll be proxying or converting all the models that come this way.
  12. https://www.nobleknight.com/P/2147859031/Outcast-Starter-Box And apparently Syndicate is getting something with an Outcast starter box. And again with the pre-assembled. Even if I'm the only guy beating the drum on this, I'll keep saying the pre-assembled stuff is a massive turn off Wyrd. Please make these things available in the normal Malifaux plastic.
  13. Yeah you're most likely right, and the cost wouldn't let them do both options. I'm more than a little disappointed about the pre-assembled nature personally, it will absolutely be a non-starter for me buying the box. You're certainly not the only one who dislikes the assembly though and I get that stance.
  14. A picture of the ES Starter Box on Noble Knight's webpage (https://www.nobleknight.com/P/2147859034/Explorers-Society-Starter-Box) says the models are pre-assembled? Maybe I missed it in the smattering of news that come out on the starter boxes, but that's news to me. Has anybody heard whether the contents of these boxes will be offered in just regular plastic not pre-assembled kits?
