This week we’re taking a look at Exigence, faction by faction (though not in book order, because that would be just crazy). Continuing the trend of making the Lost Painters use words instead of brushes, today Lost Painter Solon shares with us his thoughts on the releases for the Circle Orboros. Between painting, starring in videos for Warmachine & Hordes tutorials over at Party Foul (yes, that’s a link) and all that real life stuff, it’s a wonder he found the time, really.
EXIGENCE – CIRCLE RELEASES
Its Christmas time for Hordes but the big question is; what do you get the Faction that already has everything? I’m going to start off by saying that if you were looking for another epic Morvahna quality, meta breaking, earth shaking model/unit you will be disappointed.
If instead you want some cool new toys to shake the cobwebs out of your typical pairings you will be pleasantly surprised! Lets take a look:
Some said Synergy in Hordes would be the most broken thing ever but what they didn’t count on was PP’s ability to make it work without being auto-crush! With only Wolds in his battle group (almost universally considered sub par to their wolf counterparts) Bradigus is hobbled from the get go. Doubly so, as he doesn’t have Elemental Mastery and needs to rely on Shifting Stones or his repair skill to keep the rock robots trucking on. That doesn’t mean he’s unplayable or not a quality third lister but he won’t be usurping King Krueger or Queen Morvahna anytime soon. Still he has quite a bit more depth than you would think at first glance, and a lot of potential assuming you can unlock the right combination.
