In Malifaux, there is no law above Guild Law. Although these laws do bring some protection to the citizens, order is prized above mercy; because ultimately it is order that keeps the gears of the soulstone trade turning. A world without order is a world without profit, and The Guild always turn a profit.
The Guild doesn’t mess around with subtlety – they favor direct confrontation and physical damage, often at range with many, many guns. Their straightforward playstyle makes them a decent faction for learning the game, but with enough depth for veteran players to enjoy.
The Guild favor buffing their own crews and prefer quality to quantity. They tend to lack both summoners and cheap minions, and are generally the slowest of the factions – compensating for their lack of speed and numbers with a notable abundance of firepower and strong individual models. Most Guild Masters are equipped to fight certain foes, though this doesn’t make them useless when fighting outside their specialties.
