What do the different colours of the puppet cards mean - pink, yellow, blue, purple and green?

Makes sense, but there's no mention of factions that I can see in the rulebook, and it doesn't seem to affect building your puppet army. What are the factions and do they affect gameplay in any way?

Since Puppet Wars is based in the same universe as Malifaux, the factions are carried over from that game. In PW:U you can build an army with any color of card. Where the colors really come in are if you look at the Masters contained in the core set, (Lady Justice, Seamus, and Pokey Vik) they each make it easier to activate cards of the same color. Technically they allow you to ignore a suit in an activation requirement, but those suits line up with the colors.

So:
Rams = Red Cards = Guild Faction Lady Justice
Crows = Green Cards = Resurrectionists Faction Seamus
Masks = Purple = Neverborn Faction No master yet
Books = Blue Cards = Arcanist Faction No master As of yet.
No suit = Yellow Cards = Mercenary Faction Pokey Victoria

Hopefully that makes sense. Glad to see you guys are checking this game out, it's wonderful. I just wish Wyrd would have followed up with a second core set to round the game out.

Thanks for that info. I've really enjoyed the game the 2 times I've played it, though the unit cards are terrible and I'm in the process of redesigning them - hence the question!

It's too bad that you couldn't add the play tested models (they would have completed the game).

At this point they've removed the links to them.

UniversalHead, will you be posting here when your redesigned cards are finished, to let...interested parties...know?

Not sure yet. I'd have to get permission from Wyrd, and also my cards would feature my specific figure paint jobs, so they may not be useful for everyone.
