Unboxing Warzone Resurrection - Brotherhood


With six (soon to be seven) awesome factions that each has their own unique character it's difficult to decide which Mutant Chronicles Warzone Resurrection force is the one for you.

I'm therefore going to do an unboxing (technically an 'unbagging' until they get packaging) on each of those aforementioned factions in order to enable you to come to a (relatively) informed decision. We'll look at the stat, strategy, tactical and gear cards as well as looking at the models in both their unassembled and assembled forms. If there should be any minor assembly issues encountered along the way then we'll cover those as well...

I'm sure you've all seen pictures of things in a bag so we'll skip that bit...

The Brotherhood 'Starter Set' contains enough parts to make one Cardinal Dominic, ten Brotherhood Troopers and a Judicator in various configurations. All Starter sets give you a legal army of one Warlord and two units of five 'troops' as well as additionally giving you some kind of Support unit or Light Vehicle as well.

First we'll show you what you get in 'army list' form as well as the minimum and maximum potential unit values that you can make from your starter set. Obviously some units can be increased in size at a later point and their maximum value will increase accordingly.

Warlord (Psychic) - Cardinal Dominic (275)
Normally each brotherhood unit must take one or two psychic powers at the listed cost. Cardinal Dominic however gets six...for free...
Troops - Brotherhood Troopers x5 (75 Min) (155 Max)
This unit must take one or two psychic powers (15 points for the cheapest up to 60 points for two of the most expensive)
This unit has three upgrade options (35 points total for the three if you take them all)
Troops - Brotherhood Troopers x5 (75 Min) (155 Max)
This unit must take one or two psychic powers (15 points for the cheapest up to 60 points for two of the most expensive)
This unit has three upgrade options (35 points total for the three if you take them all)
Light Vehicle - Judicator (135 Min) (210 Max)
This unit must take one or two psychic powers (15 points for the cheapest up to 60 points for two of the most expensive)
This unit has one upgrade option at 25 points

This gives us a points range of 425 points (Minimum OOC of Warlord and two troops) up to 795 for this starter set though your actual figure will most likely be somewhere in the middle.

Onto the actual bits and pieces then...

Unassembled.
We'll look at both sides of the parts 'as they come' without any clean-up in order to give you a complete picture of what you get and what work they need.

Cardinal Dominic.

Brotherhood Troopers.
You get two lots of the pictured parts...

Judicator.

We also get a number of resource cards which vary in appearance from faction to faction...


...as well as stat cards for the units in the starter set and a number of 'Strategy', 'Tactical' and 'Gear' cards for use with the advanced rules. Some of these cards are only available with certain models but this is helpfully labelled on each card. Where there are multiple quantities of each card I'll just show one of each type.

Stat Cards.



Tactical, Strategy and Gear cards.
There are often more than one of each card and sometimes as many as three or four but showing the same cards multiple times seemed a bit redundant.

Cardinal Dominic.
 Brotherhood Troopers.
Judicator.
The Judicator doesn't come with any cards (other than it's stat one) when acquired as part of the starter set. The separately purchased model does have some though.

Starter.
Strategy.

Tactical.




Gear.

I suppose we should look at them assembled as well. 

The models come with appropriate bases but unfortunately they have slots in them but this can be easily rectified. Personally I fill them with hobby store matchsticks then base over them though there's any number of other methods. I haven't based these yet.....


Cardinal Dominic.


The sword might need a bit of straightening as is often the case with resin models. A dip in warm water and then holding it in the required shape usually does the job.

Brotherhood Troopers.
The arms of the Brotherhood troopers slot into a small recess under the shoulder-pad. On a couple of them there was resin in the gap which needed removing before the part fitted properly. It's worth checking for this before you stick the body to the legs as it's much easier to remove before rather than after.


The Brotherhood Troopers come with one configuration in the Starter Set though you can alter the angle the guns are held at fairly simply.


Judicator.
As with the Cardinal you may need to straighten the sword slightly.


A Group Shot.
