Alt Circle Battlebox

I have a buddy that's interested in learning warmachine and I have 3 battleboxes for him to choose from (for learning). Cryx, Menoth and Circle. I will be playing one of the two that he doesn't pick (aside from Cryx, cause that's just mean). If he's interested in Circle I want him to have a fair shot and I think that the circle battlebox is pretty gimped. Anyone have any suggestions for an alternate bbox?

I was thinking either of the following:

pKaya
Feral
Gnarlhorn
Gorax

or

pBaldur
Woldguardian
Woldwarden
+possible solo or stones (since I don't have a wold light to add in)

Any other suggestions? Would option one be too good in a bbox environment?

Take this with a grain of salt as I have no experience with Circle, but I think your option 1 is a little too good. It's basically 4 points over the original bbox. Maybe swap out one of Argii for a Gorax?

pKaya
Feral Warpwolf
Argus
Gorax

This provides a little more flexibility, and a not quite so "gimped" bbox.

That's a good suggestion. Maybe I went a little overboard :)

What about the pBaldur option as an alternative?

I think pBaldur and the two Heavies would be enough.
