Nice. I think knights & champions will be very effective in the treasure glyph formats - knights can swarm while the champions collect glyphs. I wouldn't be surprised to see something like knightsx5/Gilbert/Eldgrim win Treasure Quest. Everybody else is playing cute games with Cyprien and Theracus, and you're just rolling over the battlefield.

I also particularly like your Mixed Marvel army, which seems like a good counter to both of the dominant metagame options that mixed marvel provides (Cap/4th and Thanos/rats).

I think I posted that Monster Mash army at some point, so yeah, I like it too...

Looking forward to meeting and playing you soon!

thanks. And (@ dok) that's exactly what I thought about.

In Treasure Quest I think a bonding squad would be most beneficial. I was maybe going to go with a standard Dwarf Build because Migol or Mogrimm or even Darrak could be quite powerful with a treasure glyph bonus, especially defensively. But, I went with what I'm 5-0 with, so I'll see how I do with the Knights this year.

I didn't feel like bringing Mass + Cap, I think a lot of people will show with that. But I was considering Rats + Thanos + Marcu.

I went with something to counter both. I couldn't fit Q9 to counter the 4th so I grabbed Q10. He also has Wrist Rocket that is a bit better against more powerhouses that I'll face in this one. Krav are really good in this event; it's a lot of high dice rolls and Krav can ignore that. Same with Venom or Spidey with their senses. Rats are there to be rats, maybe mess with a Marvel hero if I can engage one. I chose Venom because I wanted to actually play a Marvel hero for once. I could have been lame and played without one: Q9, Krav, rats x2...maybe Othkurik for a harder hit and to counter Cap adjacency? I also could have gone with Spidey + Isamu, but I think Venom's 6 attack will come in handy and Marcu's for the wound glyph.

@dok- the Treasure Quest Event is only 16-hex starting zones.

I sure would be, considering you'd have to drop 6 knights.

The person who did win treasure quest used-
x3 GSW

You got the bonding part right, and the high amount of hexes right (15 hexes). Out of the 5 games he played he faced Cyprien 3 times, Ornak 2 times when he was facing Cyprien(Sonya 0), and suprisingly no Theacracus. Cyprien was nearly worthless when he sat Charos on a glpyh and not reaval it, forcing Cyprien to come to him, which he and his greenies would promptly kill. He had to watch out for Cyprien going for the rest of his figures... Luckly Cyprien NEVER got a 20 and killed Charos instanly. He also face an Arrow Grut army, one of the toughest matches he played. He faced R˙chean (don't know how to make little dots Edit-It did it for me!) who he barely won against, who used-
x3 Axegrinders
Darrak Ambershadow
Migol Ironwill

And he also played-
KoW x1
Macdirks x1
Sgt. Drake Alexander
So all the armies that I played had either Cyprien, bonding, or Ornak.
oh and the winner was me
