Is it a moose that became a detective ? Or a detective who searches for moose?

So there's 4 sculpts of minis but in the early missions we've seen, they are all identical.

Personally, I would hope that at some point later in the campaign, the minions get differentiated.

If you've played deeper into the game, please respond with how many scenarios you've played, the YES or NO answer, and if you want to provide any related details that might be more spoilery without going full information put them in spoiler blocks so people can choose if they want more.

According to Rodney Smith's "watch it played" the different poses mean nothing.

But did Rodney say how far he played through it?

no. I kinda hope they don't do that, though. Keep it simple. If they wanted different minions to have different qualities, it would have been much better to make completely different sculpts, not just different poses. I think that would get really annoying if there are 4 different minions that all do different things, but they're only slightly differently posed

Apologies Julien, I was having a bit of fun playing along by joining a conversation mid-way and speaking in the third person.

I'm Rodney. I played the full campaign through.

The various poses of the minions have no specific in-game effect. Some might say they create a more visually appealing presentation though, making the hordes look more dynamic.

Hey Rodney, Do the minions have any special abilities other than their large numbers? I'm assuming they are just able to overwhelm the mechs with their sheer numbers.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
No, but the scenarios dictate different things about how they move, spawn, and the targets of their attack. But as a group, it's always the same, within a single scenario.

Hey Rodney! Maybe my joked didn't come through on the internet

I thought it was pretty funny. I thought Australians and Canadians were on the same wavelength?

Ah - you were making jokes I try not to assume, so the joke was lost on its way to Canada from Australia.
