Also found another possibility for a mini for Simon. What do you guys think of this one.

Either way (initiative boost or movement boost) sounds thematic and within the parameters of the game.

I don't know about $6 for an unpainted metal mini, though

After we pass our first character, I'll create a playtesting thread and link the playtest sheet and playtest hints to the first post.

I don't see 6 dollars as paying too much for a mini. Ultimately, let's leave it up to the designer as to which mini to use. I think the most recent mini that JC found is a great fit for Simon. If that's the one he wants to use, it sounds good to me.

The fig is nice, but as Galahad said, a bit pricey. I think the movement bonus is more fitting than an initiative bonus.

EDIT: Ninja'd by Balantai

It's pricey for those without much money to spend.

I would be careful not to overwhelm his card with too many powers that only give bonuses when fighting undead. Or, if you do, keep the bonuses pretty mild. Otherwise, you risk making him too much of a niche character that becomes way overcosted in battles that don't have undead.

I think both are very fitting. I could justify either bonus.

Well the reason I looked for a new mini to use was because, I thought that it was decided to use a mini pic on the card and not an actual art one. I could not see having a pic of the drow chain fighter on Simon's card, except as the targeting zone.

I could definitely understand that concern. Here's another option.

I think the powers depend on Simon's role. Is he a counter-draft against undead armies, or an all around unit with bonuses against undead.

I have been busy with family, so I couldn't read or post in this very fast-moving thread! Simon looks good - I need to read more thoroughly when I'm not being rushed out the door - but I see him as a great alternative to Ana in the anti-undead role. Great work!

It seems that he should have only one special attack (Maybe against undead or using his whip)

One special bonus (Against Undead or life drain)

And One Special move (Like using his whip to maneuver.)
