A look at a forgotten Minion model
As I sit cleaning flash off a model I stop to look and think about what I am about to start, a forgotten model.
A model that was passed upon during MKII.
A model that is still over looked in MKIII.
The Boneswarm. A light warbeast that is a moving pile of bones. A great looking model for a gatorman bokur or a farrow bone grinding warlock.
Let us have a quick look at what a few of the stats of this pile of bones turned warbeast between editions.
MKII version and MKII version both have……
One base P+S 12 attack
20 Health boxes
It even has the same Animus (Swarm), the same ability to boost strength ,ARM or heal with corpse tokens.
Wait! They pulled TERROR off it , but morale doesn’t matter anymore (not that it ever did in MKII) so this moot.
This is the Boneswarm. It did not change at all between editions.
I guess it fell between the cracks of the supposed motto (paraphrased) of “making everything useful” that was touted prior to the release of MKIII.
This guy never saw (or currently sees) the field if you look at any competitive play that people discuss on the interweb.
It isn’t fast enough.
It doesn’t have a big damage output.
Maybe they are planning to just shelve it since it is not popular?
Hell, I am still planning on putting together a couple more of these guys.
I am not super worried about the competitive scene.
