Nightmare Ulix box

Recommended Posts

If Ulix wasn't so weak I would be more excited about this. I doubt I'll pick it up, as I like the game more than the hobby, and considering I already have Ulix and he sees very limited play as it is I see no reason to.

I think you have to abuse from the shadows 5ss boars to make ulix work, hire 4-6 minimum. Than have 1 "big" pig cart Ulix around.
In that sense I do see the attraction from the box as long as I can get my hands on 3 more ponies (for nice round 6).

the 2/4/6 dmg track on a 5ss model is bonkers good.

It's actually the first nightmare edition crew that I don't like :(

The problem is not the concept in itself, but somehow i dislike the models. It's a shame, since gremlins are my only faction and its kinda ironic that these will probably be the only limited/alt models on the faction that I won't get

i dont know what to do with 5 wild boars.

also it seems weird without addition of rainbow themed warpigs and piglets.

but it looks very good, looks like time of mr.Ulix has come.

Looks more like piglets and possibly a flying piglet than wild boars.  The nightmare box doesn't have to be exactly the same as the regular box minis-wise  (plus wild boars are pretty useless)

Without a base shot, it looks like1 small pony for Penelope and 3 larger ponies, for the boars. But who knows... 

I would be surprised to see more pony models at black Friday, but who knows.

I’m very disappointed at the new box, they could have done so much more with the Ulix or any other master. For me, ponies just comes off as lazy, strays further away from the solid and attractive themes the game started with and it’s not what I want from a nightmare box...

...but I’m still buying it...

I am happy. I see that it is a theme that many players and buyers enjoy, so the box is getting acceptance (it seems to be of good quality) but, on the other hand, it is about a theme that is not my own, letting me not buy it, so I can remain on course 😁

I like it well enough, but it isn't for me.  It's fun and odd and frankly, my little pony is the stuff nightmares are made of.  It just doesn't grab me the way the Dark Carnival, Wild Ones, or Xmas Rasputina did.

I can see why a lot of Gremlin players are disappointed, this is not in the same league as the Dark Carnival, The Wild Ones, Curiosity Killed the Cat & the Alternate Rasputina crew boxes.  But it is a rather fun and quirky box with a theme that no other crew comes close to.

Okay. I can understand that this is not everybody’s cup of tea but so what.

I love it because I love the option to twist it… and this is mainly due to Deadpool.

Yes, I also hoped for something else but somehow along these lines as it fits the Gremlins… or at least my idea of Gremlins.

A friend sent me the picture. The first second I was undecided but the second later I fell in love.

Do not, for one second, underestimate the power of Ulix.

He's a lot better than people give him credit for. Also Boars are still pretty bad, even after the reduction. WHat Ulix needs is somewhere around 8 piglets, 2-3 War Pigs, a beater Pig, Old Major, and some Sloppos.

I don't think I'll be getting this box. I like Ulix's regular aesthetics. I might use it later for a conversion, the Big Horse in particular could make for an awesome Rider mini.

I like it, but really hope to see a black Friday follow up with piglets and warpig 

I’d rather Piglets and Sow. Easter War Wabbit would fit in fine for the War Pig.

I'm all for this box.

I keep picturing various scenes where important Malifaux characters get bit in the butt by a deranged looking pony. Just picture the look on your opponent's face as they watch Von Schill get eaten alive in a pile of voracious ponies.

Sure the models themselves look a bit off for my tastes, but I'm buying this for the mental scars. Or the humiliation at the very least.

I love this as well. Unfortunately I already have Ulix and am hesitant to buy him again. But we'll see..

I really enjoy the quirky and fun theme of the box, but I already think that Ulix has a very fun theme. While I won't buy this box, I really look forward to seeing how people paint these.

Really hope they supplement this with a Piglet / Warpig box tho' - As people have already mentioned, the Wild Boars aren't the most common pick in a Ulix crew.

Honestly piglets would be enough... the alt war rabbit will be great looking with it, I'd be okay with just piglets (granted I'd be happy with more, but could live without)

But Big Mac Warpig and Cutie Mark Crusader Piglets would be great

The more I think about it the more I see me playing a mixture of models, almost like a petting zoo gone mad. Just can't decide which model I would use for the master.

Im a fan of the box, and not having Ulix its a certain buy for me. Do hope that some addons are made for black friday though.
