Arguably the Possessed are quite lacking. Traditionally Marauders should be the melee focus while Brethern are the Range focus. Both with access to mutations. As well as immunity to Psychology aka fear. I have played Possessed numerous times with many Warbands. The one thing the warband lacks is defense. Which plays a huge part in the game. Against all factions. Humans with their high armor and able to handle all weapons makes Possessed weak against two hand spam. Or Skaven with the infinite numbers and Giant rat spam. Undead with Vampires which once a Vampie is kitted out Possessed Magic does nothing to them and the Possessed might as well give up the match. Although not complaining. It's just with other Warbands I have been able to atleast defeat Vampies a few times. Chaos Spawn or Possessed characters are strong and have a lot of attacks and are suppose to have no armor. Yet when they come to face with good armor they are pretty lack luster and most factions range spam which makes the Possessed characters not worth it. Even the Mercenary version is better. Especially without access to further mutations this basically makes them a Human warrior but without the armor and the high damage weapons. Not saying buff the crap out of the Possessed but some minor changes and updates would make them a bit more competitive. Marauders should be the warriors and no range skills but access to strength speed and weapon skills with maybe a berserker specialty line. Would be cool to see but not asking for the specialty. Brethren should be Archers but no black powder or crossbows. Just bows with maybe a few skills removed. Both should have access to mutations. Possessed should have access to all mutations skill line even it they become Possessed those mutations make the unit what it is. To many times have I dismissed Possessed units cause they lack mutations to further help the unit be useful. A brethren with heavy armor and a two handed weapon and points in initiative is better and far more useful as he can defend against ranged better. And now with Elves.
