A spin off from Cygnar Powaaaah, this is to ask my fellow swans opinion on a rather subjective issue.
If you have a few points of mercs in a Cygnar army, does it still feel like a Cygnar force? Probably. A unit or so? Probably. 2 units, 3 solos and 3 or 4 marshalled jacks? Um.
This is not for competitiveness of models. This is not for comparisms. This is merely a poll:
At what point of adding in mercs do you look at the list and say "this doesn't feel like Cygnar any more"?
In proportions of points spent, please.
0% ""Any merc makes it feel grubby"
20% "A solo here or there, or a small unit, is fine. "
50% "The battlegroup's pure Cygnar"
90% "Can't forget the squire..."
100% "Hey, I spent my jack points on Cygnar jacks, what more do you want?"
For me, it's at about 10% of the list. So in a 50pt list, if I have more than a couple of solos, it doesn't feel right. Mitigated by attaching Jonas Murdoch to them and having mercs painted in Cygnar colours, but even so...
