Oh man, I completely forgot about my “points per Q” lessons!

@TREX once blanked against my Vipers 13 times in a row with Q9, so obviously he's just overrated.

I mean, he did end up winning anyway, but I think that had more to do with having DW8K in his army than Q9.
That was a crazy game. Never seen DW8 kill so much.

Re: Why Are People Still Playing Q9?

Yeah I bet DW8 can rack up some kills on vipers.

As far as Q9 goes... people were asking why I'd use him over other choices. The only one is 9 1-dice attacks for laughs (or if you know for sure you're shooting against squads with height advantage I guess). As far as competitive goes... yeah, he's not great. If he could special at range 8 and cost 10 points or so less, he might be okay. I just see him throw a bunch of random dice, then get picked off by a couple whiffs on defense rolls.

That's gotta be the tipping point. The Q-Tipping point.

He is only a little less than 6 points per X. What's the Q to X exchange rate these days anyway? I've never been great with foreign currency.

Re: Why Are People Still Playing Q9?

I'm confused why anybody would want any Majors in the first place.

Go look at a box of HeroScape and tell me what the age suggestion is.

That's right. 8+.

This is a game for Minors.

They should never have released Majors of any kind.

customs/maps/c3v/sov

how to:
make a card/post your maps

google sheets:
ohs link generator/attack outcomes

CVN~ "I highly recommend C3V customs!"

Re: Why Are People Still Playing Q9?

Why doesn't everyone use Agent Carr - He is 80 points cheaper and has up to 6 attack. Plus he does doesn't go hunting (like the Major) - that assumes a possibility of failure - Agent Carr goes killing!

Re: Why Are People Still Playing Q9?

I don't know guys... I actually think Q9 is pretty underrated. 3 attacks of 3 is decent for a hero, and his 7 defense 4 life is not too shabby. I know he catches a lot of flack but maybe it's time to give Q9 another shot. I know he usually doesn't hit the game table because he isn't as appealing as something like the Zombies or Venocs or even Isamu, but he's actually not that bad.

I'd encourage people to give Q9 another chance.

Handle origin: I used to film comedy skits with my friends. I didn't want any cursing in them, so I made up new insults, like "dendrik". Then Sir Denrick came out, and the rest is history.
