So by the end of Mk3, some people got to calling the game Mix-Machine. Indeed, many themes would allow you to take models from different factions and sometimes count them as friendly faction. This brought a lot of people to buy models from outside their faction for those “splash” themes.
Now, i think moving away from this was kind of a good move as it damaged faction identity. However, many models were made either for (1) multiple factions or (2) a specific character in mind. In both those cases, I believe those models should still be multiple factions enabled.
Some exemples of (1) that are present in the game are : Toro, Aurum Lucanum Athanor Locke, Croe’s Cutthroats (in Unlimited), Nemo4 (in Unlimited).
Some exemples of (1) that are NOT present in the game are : Rahera, Ol’Grim, Gaspy4, Aurora2.
Some exemples of (2) that are present in the game are : none
Some exemples of (2) that are NOT present in the game are : Cankerworm for Gaspy4, Dynamo for Nemo4.
What are your thoughts on the subject? Maybe make them possible all the time, or only in a certain format (like Unlimited)? Or not at all and it’s better as is?
And if an official answer, is there in the works regarding the subject or an official stance?
