One thing we like to do a lot of is to create and use teams of survivors based on a theme. Here are a few of those (there are more, but for another day):
|My personal favorite, the barbarian males. We don't play zombie wolves, so we house rule Jorvak there with
"ironclad: Runner" instead of "ironclad: Zombie wolves."
|The barbarian ladies simply lay waste to any horde in front of them. We love this group almost as much as our dwarves.
|We love creating custom survivors (and using crossovers). The bear starts with a double-axe, and the dwarf brewer starts with a dog! (I should have put a dog in there, darnit)
|A Shortage of Dwarves: We love this group (we take only 6 at a time.) They play great, too!
|The knights look fine but don't seem to fare as well in a game together; might just be our playing style getting in the way.
