Are there going to be Ulthar Minions?

I'm imagining Foot Soldiers or whatever - if they are planning an Invasion they are going to need Grunts LoL!

I've JUST realized where I had seen the name Ulthar Before (its been nagging at me for a while now) -

The Cats of Ulthar by H. P. Lovecraft

I remember there was a minion card for Ulthar Prototype in the first rule set so I guess they will come back at some point.

You're right - I'd forgot about them!

It's interesting to note - the differences between the Prototype and the Sentry Bot!

The Ulthar Prototypes are definitely overpowered compared to the humble Sentry Bot; thankfully they seem to be excluded from the upcoming book.

Only slightly, they have better :DEF & :ENG BUT they don't have detonate :D

Notice they are just for Villains only too!

I'd like to see some new Ulthar minions come out, whether bots or whatever. I get the feeling they might also use slave races for Minions.

I have LOADS of ideas for Ulthar Minions, I've been digging through my Miniatures pile to see what I have ;)

Considering that Sentry Bots are based upon abandoned Ulthar Technology from the attempted 1970's Invasion - it would be a shame if the Ulthar didn't get some form of Advanced Droid.

Another sweet option would be Alien Slave Foot Soldiers, which (of course) could conceivably be used by the Heroes too (in a "Rebel" capacity).
