So I'm 90% sure I'm going with Miss. Criid for my next list (Who doesn't love a witch hunting female who is a bit of a pyromaniac...?)

Just wondering what you guys think I should get, what I shouldn't get etc. Here's my current thoughts;

- Criid boxset (Well, there's uses for all of it...)

- Nino

- Abuela

- Some puppies (Use chaos warhounds till the Wyrd ones come out)

- Some Watchers (No idea what to use until the wyrd ones come out...)

- Executioner (When maelstrom get him in stock)

- Purifying flame

- 2 Desperate Mercs (http://www.maelstromgames.co.uk/index.php?act=pro&pre=prp_wmc_mpv_unt_121_000&sou=bas them, until wyrd ones come out)

- The judge maybe

- Quite tempted by the Guardian to help her ladyship survive a bit...?

Not a massive fan of austringers, or governor's proxy, but open to suggestions otherwise!

Thankee

Don't forget the Peacekeeper. I know I go off about this model a lot, but I've never been disappointed in its performance, despite its price (both $ and stones).

Not too sure about Abuela, but then again, if you want to blast-happy...

Come to think of it, I've used a Freikorps Specialist with Criid. Lots of blasty fun. (Just watch out for enemy Freikorps models in groups, since they're blast-proof.)

I would like to point out I'm a student and can only afford so much :P

Nah, cheers guys.

@Gremlin Swarm - Out of interest, why the peacekeeper in a list over, say, executioner, or nino, or samael etc.?

@Biggelsworth - As a former gremlin and collodi player I'm a massive fan of early game, 'worthless' activiations (turns 1-3) and late game it doesnt matter so much, they bring me this ability, as well as one turn (3) of decent shootyness.

Being out activated can make it hard to reared a decent firing line that the guild excels at. Also our 3 main foot slogging 4 ss are quite effective and tough models.

Peacekeeper is I think the second fastest model the guild has 15" a turn and can still swing once. Perdita being 1st. If I need fast I will take Perdita with enslaved nephlim 2 obeys will make any model fast.

The peacekeeper is very powerful psychologically. You'll find people focus almost exclusively on it (either trying to kill it or avoid it) which leaves you more freedom with your other models

True but if I pull any strategy like Reconnoiter I like having more bodies around. Once you spend the 9 on him and say the 7 on Nino you are left with a Master and two other models tops thats if you don't want any SS's extra in a 25ss game. So that'll give you 5 models and to get full VP's you need at least 4 of those 5 to live. As mentioned it is just my personal play style that I just feel more bodies has helped me more often then less.

Magicpockets listed one of the reasons I like the Peacekeeper--it draws fire. It's also tough enough to take it for a bit, leaving your other models free to do whatever.

It's also, as Mr. Bigglesworth pointed out, fast. If your opponent leaves it alone, it can go for objectives.

On the flip side, I often play low model count forces (in several games), so I'm used to fielding a small number of big bruisers. If your play style (or the set of objectives you're going for) depends more on having lots of models, the big bad bruiser bot may not be for you.

I saw Guild Guards mentioned above, too. They're worth looking at. (That :+fate on damage with their regular gun is nasty.)

I recently fielded a swarm of Hounds with a Guardian for a Criid crew. It worked fairly well.

BTW: If you do go with some Hounds, I'd take at least 3 for a 25ss game, unless you're planning to use them just for harassment/attack. (That ability to lose Insignificant while in packs is nice.)

Since noone else seem to have mentioned him, I'm gonna raise my glass for 'ole Samael. Sonnia does blasty nasty stuff to everyone, killing the weak and weakening the strong, and Samael just blows the strong things to bits. His damage output is insane once he gets going.

I've also invested in a Freikorps Specialist, since he feels so...right, for Sonnia. Fire's fun.

Ya my son is painting up his Freikorps crew now I really am tempted to steal the specialist though lol.

I love the Convict Gunslinger, he is the only mercanary I currently own for my Guild. He does toen to be more the the same of what you already get in other guild models though, but I love having him my crews, haven't tried him in with Sonnia yet but I can see how it would be nice.
