Is Levi Worth Playing Without Pariah Upgrades?

Recommended Posts

At the moment the only non-outcast undead and constructs I have are: A guardian, a watcher and a hunter. I can't imagine the upgrade being worth it to take one or more of these guys so I guess the question is how much of Levi's power comes from his huge hiring pool? I'm sure I could throw together some combination of freikorps, void and merc good stuff together. I'm just not sure if its worth it without the out of faction models. If it is I'll probably finish building and priming this week if not it will go on the back burner.

He can play fine with only outcasts. You don't need a pariah upgrades. Sure, the more options you have for hiring, the stronger he can be, but it's a law of diminishing returns. So owning necropunks for stake a claim makes him much stronger in that game, but not so much in other games.

I would recommend Terracota Warrior. That way you can change the Pariah upgrade in game.

Are there any other models that would be good to pick up over time?

Honestly I'm a rubbish person to answer this. I have too many models and will happily build obscure mixes to try them out. My advice is to play what you have, see where you struggle, and then look for ways to deal with that problem. And that probably means the purchase order for you would be different to mine.

His Wave 5 limited upgrade is so good I stopped playing Bone altogether. So it’s either in-faction or Iron with just Terracotta to swap upgrades and maybe Arcane Effigy.

Levi's ability to hire out of faction isn't really all that. You can grab some neat things and there's one or two neat combos, but outcasts now have models that help fill most niches without needing to rely on the out of faction hiring. Levi's hiring pool used to be amazing, but that was back when there were not many options in outcasts themselves. Now with 5 books of models every faction can usually bring a variety of solutions to their problems instead of only having limited choices.
That said, a mobile toolkit wouldn't hurt.
