Re: The Book of Othkurik the Black Dragon

On to the real post. I played a first-timer and he had Othkurik. Don't ask why, but I was using Ulginesh and his crew, rats, Warriors of Ashra, and Feral Troll. By the time my Troll felled Othkurik, Ulginesh and the crew were dead. Othkurik just lurked, attacked, killed, ran back, repeat cycle. His Deathwalker 9000 and Tandros Kreel made short work of the rest. I was a noob too, so that may explain Ulginesh. Haven't used him since.

Re: The Book of Othkurik the Black Dragon

You know, I just realized last night the benefits of the Acid Spray Special. I always took it to be a poor dragon's version of an explosive special attack (shotgun, Majestic Fires, etc.). But in fact, you're not required to pick 2 adjacent figures to be affected by it-- it's purely optional! You don't have to affect any other figure at all, other than the targeted figure. That's arguably better than your average explosive special because it's more discriminating.

I'm sure I'm just waaaay behind the curve on this one, but I figured some other folks might be able to benefit from my realization.

I never thought of it that way. Cool.

Re: The Book of Othkurik the Black Dragon

Maps tend to have swamp water in the lower parts of the map, so it would be easy to gain height advantage on this guy. His 3 defense can't hold up many height-advantaged ranged attacks.

Well met!

His Lurking Ambush also works from Shadow, but I play him for Acid Spray, so your objection doesn't hold (swamp) water with me.

Re: The Book of Othkurik the Black Dragon

Well met!

I've played him a lot, and lost him a lot to overreaching. I'm fielding

150 Romans x 3
140 Othkurik
100 Marcus
50 Me-Burq-Sa
440, 17 spaces, but a legal 15 figures,

in the
Long Island Heroscape League- IslandScape Tournament July 20.

I shall endeavor not to make that mistake (along with the myriad I am prone to make ).

Bold-ness added.

Yeah, Lurking Ambush is just some kill-the-opponent's-hero icing on the Othkurik cake. The ability to selectively splash damage from the special attack is where it's at.

Currently, I've been running Lil' Blacky with Zombies x6. Slow-rolling the Horde forward with Othkurik waiting to spray some acid on any squaddies that attempt to ebb my undead tide is just a blast!

WORST. PALADIN. EVER.

Overall Tourney Record: ....I don't even remember anymore!

Re: The Book of Othkurik the Black Dragon

Othkurik is a beast! I've used his attack of 7 to destroy many higher-value units, and he's only 140 points! Definitely the best dragon for me.

If he's got some shadow to work with, and maybe some Greenscales, he's pretty good.
