Shaman of Morindan

Quote:
Unit Name : Shaman of Morindan

General: Utgar
Species: Elf
Type: Unique Hero
Class: Necromancer
Personality: Tormented
Size: MEDIUM 4
Points: 120

Stats
Life: 3
Move: 4
Range: 1
Attack: 2
Defense: 3

SPECIAL POWERS

HORDE COMMANDS
Before taking a turn with Shaman of Morindan, you may first take a turn with a Zombies of Morindan squad or a Zombie Hulk.


ZOMBIE INCANTATIONS
If Shaman of Morindan destroys an opponent’s small or medium figure, roll the d20. If it is a 13 or higher, you may replace the destroyed figure with one of your previously destroyed Zombies of Morindan. If Shaman of Morindan destroys an opponent’s large or huge figure, roll the d20. If it is a 17 or higher, replace the destroyed figure with one of your previously destroyed Zombie Hulks.


STAFF OF MORINDAN
If the Shaman of Morindan is destroyed, place the STAFF OF MORINDAN glyph on the space where he was destroyed. A Hero may pick up the glyph, and whatever figure controls that glyph then has the power to use Horde Commands."
"Grim Necromancer #36 Deathknell D&D Miniature" Is what I was thinking to be the figure, but suggestions are always good.

I am trying to write stats for a figure that complements the Zombies of Morindan, and it would be helpful to get some feedback- I also wanted to make it compatible with the Zombie Hulk just because then it could work better with horde armies. Feedback?

(And yes, Horde Command lets you use your opponent's undead... so the Shaman would be a good boost to zombies and a good counterdraft to them.)

Re: Shaman of Morindan

I think it's a pretty good custom. While I like that you've kept him personally weak, I would also like to see his Move at 5 and his Life at 4 - just to give him a little more survivability. Or, keep his stats as the are and lower his cost, perhaps to 90 or so.

As for the Staff power, I think it's great - a FAQ would probably be needed to state that any treasure glyphs he is carrying would automatically be destroyed in favor of the Staff.

I suggest playtesting him and then submitting him to SOV.

EDIT: Be sure to have his points at a reasonable place through playtesting. I offered 90, but I am just theoryscaping.


"Well, either it allows a magic-user to cast the various Bigby's Hand spells, or it's a +2 backscratcher. So far we're not sure which."

Re: Shaman of Morindan

Thanks for the feedback! I integrated Zombie Hulk because I was planning to attempt to submit him after tweaking. I also will be playtesting him this weekend, and will work on tweaks then, taking into account *lowering point cost or *raising survivability like you said.

Edit (reply to your edit): I also think it should be a little bit more than 90, because Horde Command lets him control ANY 3 zombies or any 1 Hulk for a turn. That is the main reason why I thought it should be a little higher.

Go with your instinct, then test it to be sure.

Re: Shaman of Morindan

One last point, Zak. If he is unique, then he probably needs a proper name. "Shaman of Morandin" sounds like an Uncommon hero. Perhaps you can call him, "Darkov, the Shaman of Morandin." Of course, the name is only a suggestion.

Also, if you make him a Lord, he just might have some really interesting synergy with something in the works. Just sayin'.

Re: Shaman of Morindan

Haha yes I need to name him still, and what's in the works that Lord would be good with?

Re: Shaman of Morindan

Pretty cool, I like it. I think Tablewalker is dead on with his suggestions.

There would be some really cool and appropriate synergy with a Wave 15 unit.

Ooohhh C3V synergies.... Alright, I see no reason why I shouldn't change him so I think I'll go for it.
