Re: Filthy the Clown's Customs - Gladiator Hero

I like him. The Gladiators rather need a weaker version of Spartacus. He is easily used, as he is 110 points, and provides a replacement for 200 point Spartacus. I'd like to use him, as I've never used the Gladiators because Spartacus is a necessity and he's too much. I will make you a card if you so desire.

Thanks for the offer and for the feedback, MrWookie. I should have the card under control, but I might shoot you a PM if I hit any snags on it (I am going to wait until I get the figure painted).

In regards to feedback, it might be worth increasing his point cost and changing his defense to 4, as I suspect he will be a prime target (as Spartacus can be). However, the lower defense tends to fit with the mantra of the gladiators, where they attack in one fell swoop, risking it all by the sword. Still, with a shield-based special attack (and quite unlike Khosumet's shield), it makes logical sense to give him a higher defense. I will playtest his tonight and see what it yields.

Re: Filthy the Clown's Customs - Gladiator Hero

Yes, that might actually work better. I'd rather pay more for a Hero with longevity.

Re: Filthy the Clown's Customs - Gladiator Hero

After some playtesting last night, I like the 5 life/4 defense combo a bit better than the 6 life/3 defense combo. At 110, I still think that it is justified. Why?

-All of the Gladiators, besides Spartacus, have a base defense of 3. However, the nature of Priscus, as well as his point cost, warrants an increase of defense (while taking a hit in Life: reducing him to 5 life keeps the extra defense in check).

-Let's compare his stats to some of the other 110ish point heroes:

Code:
Name     Life         Move         Range        Attack       Defense      Bonding
Alastair     6          5            1            5              3           Yes
Migol        5          5            1            2              4           Yes
Laglor       6          5            7            3              3            No
Valguard     7          5            1            2              4           Yes
Gilbert      6          5            1            3              4           Yes
Stats-wise, the most comparable match to Priscus seems to be Gilbert (who bonds, boosts adjacent knights, and offers a mobility boost via Jandar's Dispatch; he also has one more life point). Since Priscus's Taste of Freedom attack boost (attack aura of range 3) trumps Gilbert's adjacent boost, it makes sense that he should cost more (well, more than the 5 point cost differential), or have reduced stats. My solution:
  • Remove one life point from Priscus
  • Add one defense point (more in line with a shield-based attack)
  • Remove one attack point (base attack of 3: comparable to Capuan Gladiators, but helps to offset the attack boost that he gives them.
So, the new stats for Priscus are:
Life 5
Move 5
Range 1
Attack 3
Defense 4

I like this one. . .

Might I suggest using the Capuan that looks like the Y Kozuke with a better paint job on the shield. That shield is definitely big enough to pin someone.

Re: Filthy the Clown's Customs - Gladiator Hero

Very nice post format!

I like being able to read your thoughts behind your design as well as the sample armies. It shows you have honestly thought out your units and aren't just slapping something together.

+rep for that alone!

BTW, the gladiator is cool too

I agree; that is definitely the best choice to use. I added a painting guide to the first post to show how I ended up customizing the sculpt.

The card:



I darkened the image of the sculpt to add a tinge of Mystère to the mix.

Re: Filthy the Clown's Customs - Priscus, Gladiator Hero

The left box text could be shrunk down a size. Other than that it looks great. I love cards that have the figure poking a sword/etc out of the picture zone. It gives the cards a very neat 3D feel that the official cards are lacking. I'm not sure about the darkening, but that's your call. The stats need aligned better, and I think the wording on Taste of Freedom could be improved. "If all of your order markers are on Gladiators"... Also except Priscus doesn't need to be parenthases. Overall it's very good and like Lamaclown said you can definitely see the thought that was put into it.

Re: Filthy the Clown's Customs - Priscus, Gladiator Hero

Very nice custom Filthy! Shield pin almost make his normal attack worthless though, maybe 2 for the power's attack. He seems quite balanced regardless.

Re: Filthy the Clown's Customs - Priscus, Gladiator Hero

Oh yeah you need to put a period after Attack 3 and after Range 1 to separate the stats. Sorry I missed that before.
