Comparing #001 - Emperor Penguin vs. The Penguin


Hi there!


Today I start a new se tion in which we will compare models from BMG. The idea is to analyse miniatures with something in common, trying to determine how to use each of them.


With the release of Emperor Penguin, I decided to see who is the best Leader in a Penguin Crew.








First of all, data sheets.




























Once we have checked the profiles, let's evaluate aspect by aspect how they can be used.


MOVEMENT



Bearing in mind Oswald is Small and has Movement 2, it is obvious that Emperor Penguin will be much better.

In this case, Ogilvy has Movement 3,and Fast. Not bad... Thanks to that he can move from place to place.

Oswald, instead, has to be careful, lead from behind and have a sewer quite close.





CLOSE COMBAT


When brawling, Emperor Penguin is a tank. He is designed for that and you wont need to hire a Free Agent for that porpuse.

He can choose to hit with the chain or the Reinforced Gloves. With the first one he will have Attack 4 and Strength 3+. By hitting unarmed Ogilvy gains Master Fighter, a really powerful trait.

The Penguin has a deathly sword, something enemies don't realise until suffer its cold metal.





SHOOTING



Emperor Penguin hasn't got any shooting weapon so he cannot be taken into account.

However, Mr. Cobblepot has an umbrella that can be used after moving (it has ROF 1) and it makes 3 Blood markers.

I have used it many times against pour henchmen.





DEFENCE IN CLOSE COMBAT



When defending face to face, Ogilvy's profile is great. His defence 4, Tough Skin, Regeneration and Endurance 9 will aloud him to act alone, suring you he wont be defeated (except againts Deathtrokes and other similar models...).

Penguin will need a Bodyguard and a Shield, will act further that Emperor and will force you to think carefully how to scape if necessary.






DEFENCE AGAINST SHOOTING



Against shooting things change.

It is true that Emperor Penguin has Def 4 and Tough Skin, but I personally prefer Small and Bulletproof Vest.

However, be carfeul when using any of them. A rifle makes 9 wounds no matter how powerful and beautiful model you are...





CREW MANAGEMENT



Penguin is a great leader because he provides the crew with money (500$). Ogilvy offers also some money (300$), something to take into account.

Once you continue studying traits for the crew you realise that Ogilvy gives you only Scheming/1 and Penguin alouds you to have another Free Agent (Charismatic) and activate Henchmen easier (Mob).

So, Cobblepot wins in this case.






CONTROL



Many people will argue saying Emperor Penguin controls groups of models only by placing him in front of them with enough Attack counters...


However Oswald wins this section cause he has Persuasive, a powerful rule in an objective game.






PRICE



The difference between both leaders, in this case, is huge. Penguin costs 75 and Emperor 111.

The thing is that if you observe and study it carefully you will see that it is necessary to hire some more miniatures if you decide to play with Oswald (Bodyguard, Shield...) Emperor can be hired alone.

So Penguin wins this last section.






Now we'll try to see advantages and disavantages of each of them.


EMPEROR PENGUIN


ADVANTAGES
- He can move freely.
- In close combat he is a beast.
- It will be difficult to defeat this model.
- Not necessary to hire close combat Free Agents.

DISADVANTAGES
- He is, maybe, too autonomous.
- Less traits for the rest of the crew.



THE PENGUIN


ADVANTAGES
- Offers you many rules for the crew.
- He is a really cheap Leader.
- Alouds you to have many rifles and grapple-guns.
- Is good against shooting.

DISADVANTAGES
- He must be in a line behind.
- He never goes really far by walk.




Finally, I will try to propose a list for each Leader, trying to take advance of their pros.

CONCLUSSION


From my point of view, both are interesting and useful depending on the crew you prepare.

I expect you like (and comment) this post and add some ideas or other options to be taken into account.


See you!

No love for Penguin from the Gotham TV Show ?

Hahajaja
Its true... I dont like it!!!
Do you prefer it?

Unfortunatelly for this miniature it reminds me of a show that i hate.
It's unfair because i usually like control heavy character and with Strategist, Mob, Scheming, Persuasive or Distract he brings a lot on the table.

Hahaha

What show?

I encourage you to use it cause its a great leader

The Gotham TV Show. I watch every superheros show but this one ... no.
Since Organized Crime has been teased a while ago, I'll wait the next starter to see how this Penguin could work in this new faction.
