Ulginesh & Gurei-Oni - Card Preview

Here are a couple more of the cards we saw previewed at GenCon '07, now confirmed to be final. Ulginesh is a linchpin in the elf army, as you've started to see how powerful some of the new elf wizards can be, note that you are taking a turn with two powerful heroes in one turn, and that's not all the elves have in store... stay tuned for the revealing of the final two.

Nice. I'm glad Ulginesh didn't change.

Also, I don't know about anyone else, but I'm pretty excited for Gurei-Oni. Regardless of his competitive usefulness, he's chock full of flavor and he's wielding a freakin Tetsubo.

Thanks, Truth. I love Gurei-Oni's counterstrike mechanic against ranged figures! Both characters should be a lot of fun to play.

Finally the "if the cards are the same" comments can cease .

Thanks, truth!

And no need to say "stay tuned"--we're here and we are ready...

I've played a few times with both (proxies, of course).

Ulginesh, even before the last couple wizards were unveiled, was interesting. It got Morsbane back into the game, which reminded me of Morsbane's potential to be devastating. He turned Cyprien into a very expensive unimpressive character. (Note: I'm also aware of the drawbacks of Morsbane, like his low defense, but that was boosted by the little 20 pt. elf that adds a bit of defense.)

'Chef' Gurei-Oni, as we dubbed him, received no ranged attacks due to the Evil Eye, and he occasionally took out two people at once, though not very often.

Oh, but the most fun... Sujuoh, the Aquilla insect, is brutal. It took down Sir Dupuis in one attack, effectively neutering my opponent's army.

My only concern now is how to form an army to effectively take down all these blasted elves. My friend loves the elves...

Um, truth, the preview reads "UgLi-nesh" rather than ULginesh. Is that a Freudian slip? I didn't think the sculpt was that bad, myself.

I really like Ol' One Eye! I shall play him--well, when I'm not playing the elves, that is.

Sweet they stayed the same. Looks like 4th masses days of glory are slowly diminshing. That ogre could take down a ton of 4th mass.
