Dystopian Legions - PE Professor Gustardt and Siegfried

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.

In the box you get 2 metal minis, Professor Gustardt and Siegfried the Minion., 2 40mm bases, a blank PE Activation Card and 2 Game Cards.
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

Both of the minis are metal. Gustardt on the left has 3 parts and Siegfried on the right has 2.
The separate hands have bars on that will need clipping off and filing flat.
There are only a couple of little metal vents and tabs (extra bits) to remove. Nothing that affects any detail though.

There are only a couple of small mould line on the models. A very small one on the Professor (above) and a small one up one sides of Siegfriend equipment.

Sticking time.....

These minis were so simple to put together. Just clip off the pars on the hands, file the joints flat and stick. Done!
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.
