I think there's a point to be made that not everyone wearing a turban would be a part of the 10Ts just because Sidir is himself. Sidir is included because of his personal bond with McCabe, and follows him on his adventures for that criminal syndicate. 

Sandeep is an Academic mage with an unknown background. Maybe he hates the Guild, or maybe he is after more knowledge ("Student of All" could point to this) and the Arcanists are best suited to facilitate this goal. Similar to Kirai, just because you're Asian, or in this case a Sikh (?), does not mean you are automatically a Ten Thunder.

Damn. This guy looks the ducks nuts. I initially wanted to pick up Reva, but between this guy and my latent man-love for Marcus, i may just wind up switching to Arcanists instead. ;) 

There's nothing wrong with loving Marcus, it's your natural animal instincts taking over ;) 

I am digging the idea of an academic master, I am hoping this means we'll have a few more Academics (other than just Sandeep) with some fun interactions. I would also love to see a few more upgrades available for the Oxfordian Mages so they have more options beyond the 3 they have now.

Also very cool to see a Sikh master.

So I am going to start this with two joke, please do not take it seriously because they are not:

Blah blah stereotype blah blah turban blah blah no one cares

that was 1 and now number 2

reading:"help of his Gamin friends"

D: YES THEY MAY BE REMOVING ALL THE HANGING SUB TYPES!!

Friend: you know you just yelled that and they still have swarm.

D then runs out side and yells at the heavens.

ok that is now done on to some seriousness

Great model, still not as good as the neverborn but I like angels and demons.

I am curious what else will come this way because of him, may be a Rakshasa or Naga. There is a lot you could do from there myth, though most might be order of chimera. At least he is not M&SU.

I'm liking the pose more in the render, though I kinda hope the model will work with the sculpted fire left off.

Any thoughts on if his mace/scepter thing is supposed to be one solid piece of metal? Because it looks about the size of Mercury's weights...

The mace is called a gada. :)

Love the artwork, not the render so much...I guess we will have to see what the model actually looks like when assembled. Interesting possible synergies with gamins, but also with Oxfordian mages perhaps?

Okay, my tuppence worth. Really nice model if a little reminiscent of Blackheart from Guildball. That said, i'm really interested in the Academic status. Being a student of all, I wonder if this will allow him to hire out of faction academics which if it does will allow for the University of Transmortis set being used cross faction into Arcanists. 

Now that would be cool.

Love the look of this guy, will be added to my arcanists immediately upon release. The cache of 4 does make me curious on how great the back of his card will be, but I'm excited already.

Seriously, could Wyrd do me a favor and preview at least one model that doesn't make me want to pick up the faction in question?  These are all too good and are causing me stress.

I like the render, and the rules sound interesting.  I'm really hoping the back of the card and upgrades can benefit from and play into the different flavors of gamin, allowing for a mix and match depending on the faction and pool if you decide to play him.

Not only rezzers but guild, too. Sancionated Spellcaster should be hireble to him, he needs an infilration upgrade.

He's a really strong addition to the Arcanist faction! If he has a decent  blast spell, does he take Rasputina's spot as Arcanist blaster? I think Sue's value keeps rising higher with each reveal.

Oh wow, he looks Awesome!  I'm loving his card so far (kinda sad he's not M&SU and Academic for the Oxfordian Mage interactions though), very interested to see what his abilities are.  I like the idea behind the magic he's controlling as well, having it be a smoother piece maybe shows a bit more magical control than what the Oxfordians can do on their own?

Well, I've been voting Gremlins, but it's not going to do any good. :P

Also, before I saw his render, I thought the metal ball might be the end of his other arm.  Luckily it's what he's holding not his arm.

Looks cool though.  I like the word Academic, although I don't pay attention to Arcanist, so I don't really know what this means for who he likes :P.

Oh dear. That's a master with copying actions. My favorite tactic.

  1. Start playing Arcanists.
  2. Hire Malifaux Child and Hannah.
  3. ???
  4. Copy ALL the actions, everywhere, forever.

Somehow I doubt this is a winning strat.

But I'd pay to see it.

It does eat cards, but it lets you laugh at 'once per turn' restrictions and/or fire from several possible firebases, a bit like Rasputina. And copying just gives me the giggles. Doubly so from Hannah-type 'copy from an enemy' spells.

This guy looks cool - can't wait to see painted models.

Borrowing sounds great and he combos with the mages.

Wonder if he has gamin summoning as an upgrade or action. Fingers crossed.

I'm so glad that I'm in the middle of playing Collodi for a year, so I don't have to think about which one of these new masters I want to play the most! ;)
