The eldest of the Ortega family, Francisco turned down the opportunity to lead his family in order to make way for his younger sister, Perdita, who was more skilled in both combat and diplomacy. This allowed him the time and freedom to practice swordplay, causing him to become the best duelist in the family. On occasion, the brash and the bold challenge him to a duel, mistaking Francisco’s quiet resolve for weakness. None have lived to tell about it.
Francisco combines decent shooting and melee abilities with average stats. He also has a few utility actions that allow him to Push friendly models out of harm’s way and make himself harder to hit in combat. Most importantly, Francisco has the “El Mayor” ability, which boosts the defensive stats of a nearby model. Francisco is useful in any list and is easily one of the best Henchmen in the Guild.
Hunting Arcanists and other users of illicit magic isn’t a job purely for those adept in the magical arts, and Samael Hopkins is proof of that. Using good old-fashioned tracking and gut instinct, Samael hunts down those outlaws who rely on their magic to escape the law. When he finds them, he puts the lie to their stolen power with bullets and flame.
Samael Hopkins is only good for one thing; luckily, it’s a very important thing: killing the enemy. He has a powerful shooting attack that does excellent damage and can be combined with the “Rapid Fire” action so he can take three shots. He can target models that have the Burning Condition regardless of LoS, which is helpful on a team of models that apply Burning, and he can even lower enemy defenses. He is sometimes easy to kill himself, but generally he earns his value by the time he dies.
While many question what The Judge is hiding behind the bandana that always covers his face, none question his devotion to Lady Justice and their mission to eradicate the undead. Acting as Justice’s right hand, The Judge advises her, trains the Death Marshals, and hunts Resurrectionists with a skill and passion that is only matched by Lady Justice herself.
The Judge is a durable Henchman with decent stats. His attacks are average, but they have Triggers that allow him to chain one attack into another, and as a Henchman, he can use Soulstones to make sure those Triggers happen. Finally, he has some decent utility: one action stops enemies from walking, and another Pushes a model (friendly or enemy) towards him. The Judge is an all-around decent addition to any list.
