First off, the figures for the squad are absolutely awesome looking, and are perfect for the 'scape world. It's a unit where you just want to quote "V for Vendetta", but maybe it's just me (haha).

I think the best thing, beyond playability, affordable/balanced cost, and the unique and playable abilities, is the fact that it makes figures who don't see a ton of play playable. Warden 816, Dumutef Guard, Granite Guardians, Drow Chainfighter, etc, imagine them in an army with these guys? I have always been a fan the new units who help fill in gaps that the game has, and this one definitely does.
I'm not sure he's finished revising those yet as he submitted them to Auggie's bounty and it wasn't accepted. If he wants to submit them himself once they seem more balanced out to those who have given him feedback that would be best.

Thanks Mombo, I appreciate the nomination but a little more heads up next time would be nice.

Actually that thread was before the revision. The reason Auggie didn't proceed is because I decided to revise the card and asked him not to go forth with it until I felt it was ready. After adjusting for feedback from several player/designers I made some adjustments to the bonding options, and Special Ability wording. Then started play testing at a recommended value and worked my way down. I'm quite happy with the way the card is now, and so are some of the people who rightfully believed the original to be unbalanced.
Spoiler Alert!


As far as I'm concerned this card is not going to change anymore.

This is the revised card image.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Darkmage, would you please edit in the info (what it is, what the availability is...) for the mini so I can vote?

Thanks.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Lowering the Range from 2 to 1 and removing Warden bonding were two wise decisions, Darkmage.

The Gatekeepers appear to be somewhere between the Warforged and the Drow and I'll give them a shot.

Notably their availability is not what I would like to see for a common squad at T&T or CSI, but apparently Auggie singlehandedly bridges the gap.

Yes to reviewing Darkmage's Gatekeepers.

This is what I was expecting when Auggie made his announcements, boys, it's time for us to work on our backlog...

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

I like that they are 75 points. With Dumutef Guard and the Drow Chainfighters 25 point cost it will be really easy to round out even point values. I am trying to figure out if I would run two or three squads of them.

Anyone else have any ideas on how many squads would be optimal?

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

The Gatekeepers look pretty cool.
I want to check on one thing which may lead to one question for the designer before I cast my vote to review or not (how is that for being all cryptic and mysterious ).
