Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Gents, Sertorius and I would like to nominate another of our units.

Khophawet, younger brother of Khosumet and battle leader of the Anubians. He doesn't replace his older sibling; he supplements him. His Relentless Assault Aura inspires his wolves, while his Deferred Fury evens out their luck a bit: if they roll poorly for their Unleashed Fury, then Khophawet howls in to pick up their slack.

KHOPHAWET

Wow! What a fantastic sculpt!

Relentless Assault sounds like it could be pretty darn powerful, but I'm willing to give it a try.

to Review.



I've hatched an evil plan to finally get some play-testing moving on my part. Going to get a couple maps set-up on our 3-season room now that the weather is turning a bit (not that it got all that cold this year), instead of our cold and dank basement. "Hey look, there's Scape set-up on the porch, and it's 20 minutes til dinner time. Hmmmm... what shall we do to pass the time?"

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

It's close enough that I have to wonder whether the same artist was involved.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Wondering if there is a plan to the Tyrian card in pdf? I tried resizing it with no luck yet, so I will continue those efforts if it isn't going to be put into a more printer friendly pdf. If not, any suggestions on how to resize it effectively.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Khophawet by typhon and sertorious:

"Deferred fury" is a dumb name for that power. Otherwise I agree with my fellow judges about the potential here.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Gents, thanks for your willingness to give Khophawet a try. (Except for YOU, D_S. )

That said.... We've just been alerted that an upcoming C3V unit may be both Relentless and ranged. That could be a problem.

As it is now, Khophy's Relentless Assault Aura is kept in control by the fact that every unit able to benefit from it is purely melee. (That and the fact that, unlike Taelord, he can't fly.) But combine it with a ranged Relentless unit, and.... I imagine things could get very nasty very quick. Last thing we want is a ranged Khophawet pod.

(I know Khosumet also benefits Relentless units.... but he's squishier; and requires adjacency for the bonus.)

So if you gents think it advisable, Sertorius and I will temporarily remove Khophawet from consideration while we figure out how to reword him to avoid unanticipated synergy with future units.

While we're at it, no reason we couldn't change ability names too. Anybody have a better name for "Deferred Fury"? We thought it captured the ability well, but clearly it's not <ahem> sexy enough for some. Maybe "Defurred Fury"? No seriously, any suggestions?

@ Dad Scaper, qt.bangerang --

Any chance you two could vote on Priscus this month? One is all he needs to join the ranks, and it would be nice to have a finalized card to go with C3V Wave 15...

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Thanks, UtahScott. The continued interest of guys like yourself is good to hear.

I've tested him some and my feelings so far are very positive, but I'd like to play him a bit more before I vote.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Khophawet again, with his Relentless Assault Aura reworded to forestall any problems with future ranged Relentless units.

(Also changed name of his Deferred Fury to something a tad shmexier.)

For completeness I cut-and-paste the following from the original submission.


Khophawet, younger brother of Khosumet and battle leader of the Anubians. He doesn't replace his older sibling; he supplements him. His Relentless Assault Aura inspires his wolves, while his Fury of Anubis evens out their luck a bit: if they roll poorly for their Unleashed Fury, then Khophawet howls in to pick up their slack.
