The Book of Minions of Utgar
Utgar's Rage - Collection 2 - "Drones and Minions"


If you cannot see the Army Card graphic, check Hasbro's Unit Page for stats and special powers, plus "character biography" and other non-game unit info.

Character Bio: Dwelling amongst the jagged peaks of the Mountains of Kyrien, the Minions were recruited into the ranks of Utgar's vast
hordes long before the first wellsprings were discovered. This warrior society holds the strength of arms and the might of steel above all
virtues. Fearless and blind with rage, the Minions take their battle-hardened cruelty to the enemies of their lord Utgar. Swooping in with
axes raised high, they take aim with such force that they do twice the damage of a normal warrior.

-Rulings and Clarifications-
  • - DEADLY STRIKE : How Skulls are Doubled
    How does Deadly Strike work? Are the skulls doubled before, or after shields are counted?
    Deadly Strike doubles the skulls before the shields are counted. For example, a Minion who is on height rolls 3
    dice, 2 skulls and one blank. The Figure below him rolls 3 dice, but only one shield. Your skulls are doubled to 4 hits.
    When you subtract the 1 shield, the defender takes 3 total hits. (Hasbro FAQ)

    - UTGAR’S ORDERS : How Many Kyrie Warriors that Follow Utgar
    How does Utgar’s Orders work? Can I take a turn with all Kyrie Warriors that follow Utgar I control first?
    No, you can take a free (move & attack) turn with any one Kyrie Warrior that follows Utgar instead of taking a turn
    with the Minions of Utgar. (dnutt99)

What I'm looking for is a good way to kill these guys. People have said Q9, but the minions usually survive the three attack dice in the special attack, or they move in too fast for the normal attack. The guys that I've had the most luck with are Kaemon Awa and Deadeye Dan, usually accompanied by Theracus. Just wondering if anyone else knows a good way to kill Hell's Angels with a relative number of points.

I've used two ways successfully: (1) Krug, and (2) 3 squads of 4th Mass. But the Minions are tough, no doubt about it; that's why they are a bit pricey.

These guys are definitely strong and can dish out some hurt too. Don't know if this works that well, but Kozuke Samurai could do the trick. They should get the first hit, and 5 attack versus 6 defence is pretty good.

The Kozuke's are a good choice, but if you want a cheaper counter, pick the Izumi. You probably won't kill on offense, but on defense you'll hurt them. With counterstrike, you can take advantage of the whiff or 1(2) dice roll.

*This came from the 'Tip's and Tricks' section on the Heroscape site about the Izumi Samurai because it said "finally a counter to the Minions of Utgar"

Matthias Maccabeus May 21st, 2007 09:21 PM

Statistically Speaking the Sentinels just edge out the minions. (If I did it right)

Chimpy May 22nd, 2007 12:30 AM

Samurai can take them down. The WoA also do rather well against them.

And if you want a fun game, draft 2X Minions and Taelord. Never was there a more mobile 400 point army.

Yeah! I had decent success with Tagaw Samurai Archers Counterstriking Minions.
WoA - I really need to remember these warrioresses more often - great idea for a cheap, potent, counterdraft to the Minions!


Something we've done with the Minions is to fly them backward at the opponent, in some attempt to block their own hit zones with their wings.
:lol:

Like most expensiveish squads, Braxas makes a good counter but her low def means she'd better acidify them quickly. Nakitas might also be a fair counter with engagement strike.

Jandars_Hope May 24th, 2007 05:56 AM

Ways to stop the Minions:
Grimnak - Chomp
Braxas - Acid Breath
Deadeye Dan - Ullar Enhanced Rifle
Sudema - Stare Of Stone

Counterstrike - Probably those with 5+ defense

I had a castle game the other day; Utgar vs Einar, and i had 3 squads of these guys. I moved all of the squads close to the castle but out off firing range, then i moved one squad in the first round and took out some of the romans, Imperium and Tagawa Archers. The next round i moved another squad and took out even more figures. They are great when attacking weakish figures (when on the same level) because they have 6 defense. They can easily turn a castle game to the offensive players advantage.

I would prefer the team (but that's just me):

Taelord 180
Minions of Utgar 110
Omnicron Snipers 100

I think range with defenders/attackers is better than just (more) defenders/attackers. But your team is also good, I'd have to try it to see if it's better, same, or worse. I just wanted to share that team.

Matthias Maccabeus May 31st, 2007 04:01 PM

These guys are medium (size) so,James Murphy's whip and Retarius' net works against these guys. Jandar's Hope also mentioned Braxas, Grimnak, DED. Marden hounds, Kee-mo-shi, Me-burq-sa, Nakita agents (engagement strike), Deathstalkers (maul), there may be a few more. Most of these take a decent roll with the D20, but not all. But once again this is Heroscape making sure no 1 unit is better than all the others. Thanks Hasbro. It makes the game more fun.
