What do you like about Abyssinia?

Recommended Posts

Soulstone-powered suits of strength, motorized magical machinery and top tier technology. No matter if you are already addicted to soulstone-smithing, or just a newcomer who have heard tales of their techonological prowess, I want to hear what you like about Abyssinia.

It doesn't matter if it's the whole faction, a single sculpt or just one of their faction upgrades. Share your positive thoughts about this allegiance! (Or lose access to you soulstone)

I am not playing abyyssinia (only because at my club there are at least 3 in the faction) but I love the heavy metal feeling. The advanced armors, combined units and african style are an awesome combination. I think I love every single unit exept the cavalry, the only not tecnologic ones.

After playing cult almost entirely during the PT, I made the switch to Abyssinia because of how unique they are. Love the different vibe of the models, the Crow Runners are some of my favorite war gaming models period.

I like the feel, as someone who has loved comic books for 30 years I like the Wakanda vibe of the African country with the uber tech.

The back story is cool, and I love Elite Heavy Armies. 

Besides that the Army just looks AMAZING. Them armor and the Mechanized Units are awesome.

double dread is a ton of fun, but I've declined to double dread. IF I do double dread, I'll get my second from my lgs.

 

you want at least access to 2. I find 2 to be the sweet spot to keep the hand full and occasionally do some work well above points cost

Two reasons for me, one in that they were a forgiving army that could pitch into melee, (something that was important to me)

*trigger warning*

The second being that it's just so damn refreshing to have a non-European/american faction that isn't 'savage'. Most Asian/African/Latino based factions always seem to backwards and archaic against their high-tech European foes, Absyinna was a surprising change in which the models still look African but the tech looks both advanced and practical.  Even Malifaux's own Ten Thunders can't claim this and it was a huge draw to have something on my shelf that looked so different and yet still badass.

*trigger warning*

I've kept the faction because of all the bonuses that come with the alliegence. Free Assets? Free Cards? More Free Cards and a free shot with the Adjunct? Yes. Please.
