An electrifying character for the Prussian Empire in today's Dystopian Legions Wave 2 Review
Professor Gustardt and Siegfried the Minion
Obsessed with the power of electricity, Gustardt’s dream was to create
a machine that could harness the power of lightning, Now, after many
years of development, he has perfected such a device - the amazing
Tesla Gauntlets. On the battlefield, the Professor is always
accompanied by his faithful, and often slightly scorched, assistant
Siegfried. He carries the bulky battery-packs, and alters the power
settings according to Gustardt’s commands - an important job, given
the eccentric Professor’s taste for pushing his invention to its limits!
I wont keep on about the packaging for the Dystopian Legions range. With the awesome renders direct from the models and all the info you need I think it speaks for itself.
The Professor is a Tier 2 Officer armed with a pair of Tesla Gauntlets. These can be used for great ranged attacks against Infantry and Ironclads. They are boosted by the power pack on Siegfried. Amplifier lets you increase your Ranged Attack Dice against Infantry but gives the chance of electrifying the pair themselves.
Stabiliser is used against Infantry or Ironcalds. You roll extra dice and pick the highest instead off adding them on. The up side is there is no chance of hurting yourself using this.
Game Cards -
"Terrifying Corona" makes the Professor frightening to the enemy
"Electro-Galvanisation" lets Siegfried heal a model in 4". But there is a chance of hurting them instead.
Full rules can be found HERE
The separate hands have bars on that will need clipping off and filing flat.
The 40mm bases may look a bit big but that is how Officer models stand out in the game. It also gives you the chance to play with basing and get creative. Burnt grass around them for me I think.
Gustardt and Siegfried are wonderful models. Stuffed full of character and detail. The rules for them are also just as fun as the models. I would recommend these for a whole heap of games, not just DL Prussians.
The pack is available at The Troll Trader for £8.55. What a bargain! A pair of character minis anywhere for any game for £8.55 is great!
I absolutely LOVE these models. The look, detail, rules, character, background, the whole lot.
I like them that much they will be appearing in more than just Dystopian Legions games. Pulp City mad scientist and his Igor?
A very well deserved 10 out of 10 Badger Points!!!!!
Not a bad word to say about them.
What are your thoughts on them?
Tomorrow, as described by a friend, a bald John Travolta with a massive electric toy and a Wolverine assistant.
