Gudrun might be worthwhile now (full Berserk...we'll try it out). He's a SPD6, Pathfinding, AD, MAT7, P+S15 Reach Berserk model with 16 wounds, which is nice to have in Searforge.
Brun & Lug - So, I think most of us wanted them to be able to pull off Flank more consistently. Instead, the pair is now even worse without it. Hmmm...PC9, though (and Immunity Cold?). I think, overall, they're quite fieldable. They're also 2PC cheaper than the initial fieldtest rules, at the cost of only 1POW (but gain Cold immunity). They were over-valued by PP before, but I think 9PC is a decent spot for them.
Saxon - Could be very useful in Agenda armies, now, giving Pathfinder to friendlies within 9". Stealth is nice too!
Alten - Wow...what a kick in the nuts. However, he's now only PC2, setting him on par with other specialist 2PC solos for other factions (like the Sharpshooter, or Kell, etc.) He was severely downgraded, but much cheaper (1/3!)
