Hello Anima Forumites!
I bought myself the card game (for the artwork) and afterward heard of the miniature game, and wanted to try it out as
1.) I like the Artwork very much!
2.) The Minis are awesome, and I can use them in my Pen & Paper groups
3.) Never tried a tabletop war game, so might start with it (won't paint though, I probably pay someone else as I dont have the nerves for it, if someone can recommend me a good painter in europe/austria, I am all ears)
Anyway, I started looking through the wiki and the party builder and tried to come up with minis I like and efficency of a good party, the latter which can be difficult to grasp for a tabletop newbie as I am. I for one fell in love with the wanderer faction (Kujaku Hime, Tsubasa Kurokami, Anna Never) and was sad to hear that if you play wanderer, you don't gain any faction benefit (only that you can play light or dark, but thats...meh)
So I started to look through the factions and made a list of minis that I like (end of post). Which faction would you recommend to me that gives me a nice bonus for the wanderers?. Are there any house rules for wanderer bonuses?
I would need a 200 point and a 300 point army that is focused on wanderers and get's a faction bonus, but I have no clue of what kind of characters I would need. Maybe some synergies with my favorable wanderers would be very nice! And also I can't spend too much money! And as my FLGS don't sell these minatures, it's a bit of a hassle to order online.
Are there more factions planed? Are there more minis planed? It would help me choose!

Thank you for reading the post until the end, I know it's a long one!
