Resurrectionists Masters

Douglas McMourning - Dr. McMourning has sacrificed much for greatness, including his sanity and his lofty position among the Guild. Now a pure Resurrectionist master, he is free to indulge fully in the Poison-related shenanigans for which he was known in second edition. His thematic crew has been somewhat inured to the good doctor’s toxins and possess the Perverse Metabolism ability, which allows them to heal from Poison instead of take damage from it. 

Molly Squidpiddge - Molly has moved away from her summoning roots to become a control master who excels at limiting her opponent’s options. This is best exemplified by the Fading Memories ability of her thematic crew, which gives them significant bonuses once the opponent runs out of cards in their hand. 

Seamus – As the city’s most infamous serial killer, Seamus has something of a reputation to upkeep in Third Edition. To that end, he leverages the Terrifying ability of both himself and his thematic crew, though some of the latter are more Manipulative than frightening. Either way, his thematic crew function like ambush predators and make great use of their Lying in Wait Ability, which allows them to become Distracted in order to delay their Activation until later in the turn.

Reva Cortinas – Reva has retained her ability to hack at her enemies through Corpse Markers, though her range has been shortened to make things a bit more sporting. To compensate for this, she and her thematic crew have learned how to make great use of Pyre Markers via their Funeral Pyre ability: each time an enemy model is Killed near them, they can place a Pyre Marker into base contact with the Killed model.  

Kirai Ankoku – Kirai is one of the strongest summoners of the Resurrectionist faction, and that has not changed in Third Edition. What has changed is how she goes about it: when she summons one of her spirits, it now gains a Vengeful Spirit Upgrade that damages Kirai each turn. In order to stay alive, Kirai will have to rely upon the Feast of Vengeance triggers possessed by her thematic crew, which heal her each time they Kill an enemy model.

Albus Von Schtook - The headmaster of the infamous University of Transmortis is the newest necromancer to join the ranks of the Resurrectionists. Albus is a summoner, though he approaches it in a different manner than most necromancers, in that he allows his undead students to do the summoning under his guidance..

Jack Daw* -  As befitting his crew of terrifying zombies, Jack Daw has split his focus and now serves the Resurrectionists as well as the Outcasts. He has also shifted back towards his original roots: he only has six wounds, but each time he suffers damage, he can discard a card to reduce that damage to 0. Similarly, whenever a model in his Crew would draw cards, he can instead heal damage. Jack Daw’s thematic crew takes full of advantage of his ability to attach Curse Upgrades to enemy models with their Torment Ability, which allows them to draw a card each time they resolve an action damaged an enemy model with an attached Upgrade. 

Yan Lo* - Serving as both a Resurrectionist and a member of the Ten Thunders, Yan Lo is a powerful sorcerer who has forgotten much of his former life. Each time he activates, however, Yan Lo attaches an Ascendant Upgrade, allowing him to recover a portion of his former strength. His thematic crew is split between Ancestors and Retainers. Ancestors turn into Reliquary Upgrades when they are killed, which can then be Attached to Retainers to buff them. Furthermore, Yan Lo can call out to the spirit within a Reliquary, allowing the Ancestor to return to life, albeit at the cost of losing the model holding the Ancestor’s Reliquary.
