Re: The Book of Vulcanmech Incendiborgs

Regarding the markers needed for the redundant systems ability, one could easily paint three of the extra exoskeleton markers included included in the Icewind Scourge boosters. Of course, most people will probably not bother painting markers anyway. However, I am fond of kpucblek's idea of making orange redundant systems markers.

That is what I use. I have not decided to paint them yet, but since WoTC was so nice to supply me with extra markers, I thought I'd use them

That was how I initially interpreted it, but after seeing the pricetag, I began to waver in that interpretation, and thought, "Well, it's possible..." It was just one of those things. You see and read a card a hundred times and then, Wham!, all of a sudden, it hits you weird and you question something you've always known...

Oh, after I saw Redundant Systems, that was how I saw them - as basically a 6-man unique squad with some serious hitting and staying power. That definitely justifies their high(er) cost. Again, a pretty damn cool unit.

I agree, and while I appriciate Anitar's interetest in this project...if you answer questions in that tone; you reflect a bad light on the C3V...even though you are also a fan.

Please be courteous on this site,

Thanks

Nope; as Anitar said, it's the adjacent space and the next one, just like Rhogar and Mimring (who use the same phrasing).

I suggest everyone try these guys. I was skeptical of their cost when I first playtested them, but in the right army they are capable of doing most of the heavy lifting. Of course, as with almost any unit, match-ups are key. Plus, they look incredibly cool on the map.

Re: The Book of Vulcanmech Incendiborgs

With the right setup, these guys are entirely capable of earning their 180 points back. They're especially troubling alongside another Menacer. If your opponent has to split their attacks between these guys and, say, Nilfheim, it will take them a while to knock these guys out. Setting Krug in front of them is another cool idea.

I playtested these guys. My local players told me several times that they were just too strong. In a team setting, where there are almost always multiple threats at once, these guys really thrive.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Re: The Book of Vulcanmech Incendiborgs

Aren't the exoskeleton markers kind of orange-metallic-colored anyway?

I'll probably just use the regular markers. I'm lazy like that.

I'll probably use wound markers, because I'm even lazier.
