Sorry the title is so confusing.
I recently Acquired an MK I Cygnar Starter set in a trade. It came without cards, but included a fold-out of the MK II rules with 'cards' on the back of the fold-out for the following factions:
I just laminated it so I could write on the back of the rules fold-out with a dry-erase marker.
Now, onto the point. My brother has played Orks in 40k for ages. He has always been very comfortable with the idea of himself as a 'greenskin player.' That is, no futzing around with anything elegant, pretty or normal.
I want his first game of Warmachine to be one where he can implement similar strategies to those that an Ork player would use in 40k. Given the four choices above, who do you think he should proxy his models as?
I'm thinking Menoth. No nonsense, fast enough, hard-hitting, and a good sense of timing makes them shine.
(Aesthetically, it makes sense to suggest Trollbloods. Problem is, I haven't played this game very much and I'm still sort of learning the rules myself! I don't want to commit to learning and simultaneously teaching two rules systems, and I'm eager to try out Warmachine. Hordes can wait until September... :3)
