As I paint the new Mimreg Salto, I have been thinking over the possibilities of combining the Spica Hired Hands with the portals that she brings to the table.
When combined with certain characters, these Spica could utilize those portals to deal some nasty close combat strikes. If I can find a way to come to grips with the more squishy opponents right away, perhaps that might help me equalize the numbers more rapidly.
It will also depend on the scenario. Objective base scenarios mean that severe outnumbering will make life very tough. Since the opponent can also use those portals once they are on the table, it means careful consideration of their location!!
