Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Hey judges,

I know you've got a lot on your plate, but I've decided to nominate one of my customs, the Zettian Infantry:



This one just went through the CHCG24 process, which led to much tweaking of the language and card appearance, but no fundamental changes. I have raised the price from 60 to 65 points, however (a change that I had already done a lot of testing on before CHCG24 got their hands on it, but I didn't finalize until this weekend).

Figure choice/availability:
Spoiler Alert!


Design/Flavor:
Spoiler Alert!


Thoughts on balance/testing:
Spoiler Alert!


Thanks in advance to the judges for taking the time to consider my custom.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Anyone looking to nominate a unit need look no further than the way dok just presented the Zettian Infantry.

Deathwalker love that looks like it works? No brainer for me... Yes to review the Zettian Infantry.

The only thing more I could ask for at this point is some comparison shots of these figures next to our current Soulborg heroes.

I did include such a shot, although I didn't make it clear that that's what it was:

Here's the photo I linked there. There's a couple of my other customs on the back row, and no DW7k, but you get the idea.

Dok, you are a naughty boy for sneaking this in there especially for me.

For those who have not seen it yet, there is a link in my sig to House Rules for the use of customs (& some official figs) for practical use by Tournament Directors. It's a personal project at the moment but it was inspired by the thought that I shouldn't, every single time I craft a tournament announcement, have to say that any 4th repaint is an acceptable Samuel Brown. And as we stumble deeper into FanScape there will be more sculpt issues we have to deal with.

Anyay I think this is exactly what I was looking for when I described in earlier posts a "thorough" nomination and I appreciate the consideration of tournament implications of these figs beyond the sculpts themselves.

Dok, you showed a lot of restraint here. I'll give a yes to review Zettian Infantry.

Ditto and ditto (that is a Yes to review).

Nice work, dok!

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

To misquote, I think that Utgar Soulborg Bonding fills a much-needed gap in the Heroscape Canon.

What's the SoV position on random unqualified 'scapers like me dropping by with opinions on customs that are not backed with any testing? If it's allowed/encouraged I'm happy to elaborate.

Ollie, speaking for myself, I want as much constructive heckling as we can get.

By all means feel free to elaborate and contribute to the discussion.
