Well, if you haven't heard by now, Minions are probably getting real warlocks. I love the feel of playing a merc army (because its unique...even if there is another merc player, good chance that they are playing a different contract). At the same time, I like the Fury system of Hordes. I have been waiting for a very long time for minion Warlocks and hopefully I don't have to wait to much longer. Well, I decided to make a thread where people can talk about their thoughts on the Field Test minions or their hopes for the future of minions (seeing how Minions don't have their own forum yet).
My thoughts on the Field Test:
Bog Trogs: Well costed and useful. Not an OMG unit, but not a completely useless one either.
Farrow Bone Grinders: I like them. For a small point cost you can get a fairly accurate magic attack, a throw away unit, and a little bit of utility.
Farrow Brigands: A ranged unit that probably will rarely ever fire. From what I've tested so far, these guys are an absolute pain to take out with ranged attacks. They aren't very scary though...and how did pigs find out how to make better guns than Cygnar?!?
Gatormen Posse: Very good vs. living opponents. Lack luster against nonliving ones. I love the addition of Durge of Mists.
Swamp Gobbers: We all knew the nerf was coming. They are still very good for 1 point.
Totem Hunter: =dead just about anything. Any game that drags out, this guy will make back his point cost and more. I can't think of a time not to take him currently because Alten still needs to die!!!
Minion Warlocks: To many special rules and to high in cost. Only one I like right now is Wrong Eye and Snapjaw. I did like how Privateer tried to add survivability to the elf, because she'd die way to easy in Mk. I.
My thoughts on the future:
Gatormen: I'm hoping these guys get a Warlock. I can't help but like the idea of southeastern voodoo combined with the awesomeness that is Gators. Probably doesn't help that Leatherneck was my favorite Ninja Turtle character...anyway, I'm looking forward to the possibility of real Bokors and Zombies!!!
Farrow: I really like the farrow miniatures. I would love to see them come together in a farrow army.
Past that, I don't know who else would be deserving of a warlock. What do all of you think?
