I actually think Protectors are a little underrated/underplayed, but they're very different from Sentinels/Minions, so it's really like a whole other topic. I don't think I'd push them up from B, but I think they're an interesting unit that's pretty good and you never see them played.

Aaaand Imperium are Imperium

Imperium check all the boxes for tournement play lol.

-High Cost per figure
-Low Defense
-Lack of Defensive Powers

But theyre definately fun to play when they work.

I've brought this up before - at 110pt. you can make some really interesting armies with them.

But at 140pt. they're too hard to fit. Even x1, which I've considered at times.

Yeah, I actually think the Imperium wouldn't be too bad even if they were the standard 110 for Kyrie squads - fragile, but double attack on a stealth flying squad is still pretty nice. Of course, I've actually printed out the CUC card for them, which drops their price to 110 and gives them Evasive 2, which should make them pretty damn good.

I took the CUC version of them to a tournament before, and I can confirm that they're quite good. It's a shame that the original card came out at 140 points, as even without the Evasive 2, I could see the Einar Imperium being used at least somewhat. As it stands now, even just taking 2 squads for a total of 280 points is a tough pill to swallow.

The Imperium are easily the most over priced squad in the game, IMO. shouldn't be more than 110 pts tops.

Re: Heroscape Power Rankings: Complete?

I'm almost certain the Einar Imperium were playtested at the standard kyrie 110 points and were heavily nerfed after coming out too strong. Maybe even nerfed defense as well as points. Double attack is really really good on a common squad. I feel the same way about Sir Dupuis who was definitely playtested as a Knight bonding hero and heavily nerfed, in losing Champion status and probably raised in cost too. The stats just don't really make sense with Heroscape precedent

Re: Heroscape Power Rankings: Complete?

I'm inclined to agree, but rushed nerfs are usually my best guess to explain most underpowered units (such as Hatamoto Taro). For whatever reason, the Einar Imperium are woefully overpriced, and I can't help but wish that they had released at the same point value as all of the other Kyrie squads.

Sir Dupuis was always another figure that I never got much value out of, but I haven't actually used him since I purchased some Knights of Weston. I'll have to test him out sometime to get a better idea of how he functions when he actually has his intended units with him (although I don't expect it'll be too great).

Re: Heroscape Power Rankings: Complete?

Dupuis has some more army options with the Phantom Knights, too.
