The recently Gargantuans book release event featured an interesting two-caster format that I was really excited to try, but I’m currently on a bit of a break from my only army with multiple casters– Cygnar– and I only own one Legion warlock. Between the two options, making a new model to play with my Legion seemed like an easier task than somehow getting excited about my Cygnar again, so I investigated my options.
The thing is, though, that my lack of Legion warlocks isn’t an accident– I made an intentional effort to collect a single-caster force, and though I do eventually plan to add a second caster, this will require a completely from-scratch sculpt that I didn’t have time for before this event, so I needed to find another option.
This is how I found myself sitting in our store with a few associates, chatting about Minions. The Farrow and Gatorman warlocks are mostly played within the Minion Pacts, but they do still work for the main Factions when the format allows it, so I started looking at what these models would contribute to my army. Many of them immediately seemed to be way too Pact-oriented (Carver, Barnabas, Midas, Arkadius), while others just didn’t contribute much to my army (Calaban, Maelok). The only two who seemed like they might help were Sturm & Drang (a decent lockdown feat, and Telekinesis is always a massive boon) and Rask. Between the two, Rask had the less ugly model, so I shrugged and picked him up.
However, despite him being less ugly than the Pigtaur, I still really dislike the “RRRRAAARR ANGRY PIRANHA” face, so I decided to see what I could do to make him a bit more in line with my tastes.
