Zettian Infantry by dok

The Zettian Infantry are a nice addition to the Deathwalker faction. Their ability of Circuitry Replacement keeps the glass-jawed Deathwalkers around longer. In most cases, Ive discovered that a Deathwalker will only whiff one or two times in a game, and having a way to avoid the inevitable whiff; is invaluable. On top of protecting the DWs from their glass jaw, the Zettian Infantry adds a much needed Common Bonding option to the Deathwalker faction.

Most of my games centered around 3-4 squads of ZIs, DW8 or DW9 and Warden 816. DW9 can add to their range and the Warden can add to their move because they are Guards. I found these guys do not pack a punch, but the bonding is makes for a nice group. Now get them on height, and then they are formidable. And forget about castles; they defend castles with the best of the ranged units. Also thanks to their Circuitry Replacement, I had good success in storming castles too.

I really liked what these guys added to my table and plan to get a few more Super Battle Droids so I can field a large Army for epic battles. And yes they use a recognizable unit from Star Wars, but not really from the movies...more from the cartoons and I think that's OK. Plus there is a ton of these out there, so I think everyone can put together a few squads.

Overall these guys are a great addition to the Heroscape canon, which makes a well-deserved faction much better. And I am happy to vote YES to induct doks Zettian Infantry into the SoV.
