I'm interested in these as an add on to provide a bit more player interaction, but do I really need 16 minis?

Having not seen the rules for these, how many are likely to make the table at any one time?I particularly like the female sculpt, would 4 of these be enough?

Whilst writing, have any rules for saboteurs been released yet?

Hi PlanBee,

Saboteurs specific deployment zones and special abilities (not rules though) have been adressed in updates (see update #15 for Pistolero for example).
General "how to use saboteurs" has been adressed in update #13

Saboteurs are a one time use and are quite expensive (imho) to recruit (1 wild (star) token) so 1 pack of each (4 minis) seems to be enough (imho again). But the 4 kinds of saboteurs seems nicely different, so I might go for the bundle.

Hope I understood correctly your questions and gave you appropriate answers.

senik, yes you did, many thanks.

I was a late backer to this campaign and therefore havent read all the updates, but will read the ones you mentioned right now.

Whilst I'd like the variety of 4 different sabs, it is another $45. So maybe just 2......but then thats $30 and it would only be another $15 for the full set......decisions decisions.

I've decided to not get them, as I think they are much too expensive at half the cost of the base game. I also can't wrap my head around why you would want 4 of the same saboteur? If they had a pack with one each of the four saboteurs, then I could see an added value of $15, since then there would be some competition for the one that you'd want to recruit and use. I think some people will break up their full sets and sell them the way I've described.

I agree, I would have like a mixed set. I asked the project creators if they would offer a set of 4 mixed, but they said no.
