Springtime Custom Competition Poll - Vote by 4/22

The entries are in and all that's left is for you to figure out which is the best. We've got bugs of all kinds here: queens, drones, workers, soldiers, larvae, the little legs in hot dogs, lousy lice, tricky ticks, pompous potato bugs... Maybe I got distracted there.

Anyway, it is, in fact, time to vote! Select the three submissions you think are the best. What does best mean? That's up to you! You really have all the power here. Discussion is heavily encouraged to help everyone analyze these as well as they can (and don't worry too much about anonymity, just try not to hint too heavily about which one is yours).

Remember that if you entered you are required to vote, and not allowed to vote for your own entry! Also, let me know via PM if there is any error with your entry (such as a forgotten bio, of which I am almost sure there is at least one).

Re: Springtime Custom Competition Poll - Vote by 4/22

Well met!

My 3 faves:

Atharm & Volucris Suicidium
So much text and Atharm is way under priced, but Suicidiums' Suicide Swarm/Sting Spear Special Attack and Atharm's Corpse Infestation/Larval Cannabilism create a cool dichotomous dynamic between death and life for the Suicidiums.

Vorelanj and Dread Locust Dragoon
Another text heavy entry with interesting mechanics. Blowfly Infestation is very cool. Mortal Shed seems of extremely limited usefulness.

Poxi Vespimic and Insect Drone
I like the way Poxi's Fortune's Favor works with his Drones and his Class mates (Predator). I'm assuming the individual Drones are meant to be Common Heroes (as opposed to Common Squad members according to their Card).

The others:

Insectar Queen and Guard
Over priced, both. Odd stats. Not my cup of nectar.

Kkyal the Enforcer and Kraul Wing Soldier
Confusing entry, from pricing to mechanics. Exoskeletons are fine, but what's with Exoskeletal Blast requiring the targeting of a Kraul Wing Soldier?

Kraal and Drone
Very fast, otherwise very conventional. Again, I get it, but it doesn't excite me.

Mazierk, Kraul Necromancer and Golgari Vanguard
Stupid strong units/powers and the "Common Hero" has 5 Life . . . ?

Queen Ghuddedio and Kraul Grunt
Pretty conventional. Common Hero's Defense of 1 . . . ?

Queen Odonata and Feldspar Drone
Wall of Thorns is interesting, but how does it fit thematically?

S'Kraax Queen and Drone
Other than a borrowing of Zogross' Tribal Protection, pretty conventional.

Volaticus and Green Horned Warrior
Different approach. Common Heroes borrow Green Horned Warrior Bonding from Wyrmlings, with Pheremone Phrenzy, substituting multiple mandatory attacks for the various ubiquitous Swarm type powers that work around the limitations of Common Heroes, turning them into the equivalent of Common Squads. Volaticus borrows Flutter directly from the Quorik Warwitch and the wording for Pheremone Phrenzy Enhancement from Khosumet. He is also a unique sort of Ullar Warlord, useful as such or even, in a pinch, standing alone. He's appropriately priced for his various roles. All kinds of cool ideas, but I couldn't quite bring myself to vote for them.

Xiphydri Commander and Drone
Very cheap, reflective of their stats, otherwise very conventional.

Thanks again for the great post, kolakoski. As for the "Common Squad" error, that one's totally on me. It's fixed now.

As for the 5 Life Common Hero, that's because in AotP any figure can have multiple lives, since you just put the wound markers on the figures' bases.

Re: Springtime Custom Competition Poll - Vote by 4/22

The % info at the end of the vote count doesn't really tell us anything new since it just gives you 10% for every vote you receive rather then show a percentage of the overall vote.

Another fun contest here though. I really like the idea of fielding a big army of insects against some orcs or elves.

I don't think it does - I think it just bases percentage off total voters rather than total votes (which still makes no sense and tells you nothing...). I can see why you'd get your impression, though - with 10 voters it does look as though each vote just counts for 10%.

Re: Springtime Custom Competition Poll - Vote by 4/22

I'll go ahead and give my thoughts on these. I'm not entirely sure to what extent anonymity is important, but I'd almost certainly tip people off even if I tried to hide it. So instead I'll just say which is mine when I get to it, and put the whole list in a spoiler in case you don't want to know (or in case you don't want to read my critiques, which is totally fair as they sometimes turned out a bit harsh).

Re: Springtime Custom Competition Poll - Vote by 4/22

Great designs. These are the three that got my votes.

Atharm & Volucris Suicidium - Sting Spear and the (nasty) larvae & cannabalism powers totally sell the theme of insects. Bug larvae are one of the few things that still gross me out, but this still got my vote, haha.

Kkyal the Enforcer & Kraul Wing Soldier - My personal favorite of the designs. It's nothing new individually but the combination of powers works really well. Exoskeletal Blast combined with Exoskeleton markers makes this a Pelloth-like design that could actually work.

Volaticus & Green Horned Warrior - Pheromone Phrenzy is a cool power, and the alliteration makes me chuckle. Volaticus being an Ullar Warlord gives him a nice niche with the Armocs or Romans as well.

Re: Springtime Custom Competition Poll - Vote by 4/22

Poll closes today - vote now. Note, I voted without looking at results first - but now I see it is a 3-way tie for lead - I am guessing there will be a fun run-off. There were so many great fun units that I could see being played, However as usual in order to narrow it down easier, my votes were based on:
1. Which units had synergy with other units besides the ones listed - i.e. other insects. However I threw out units I did not think were costed correctly.
2. Which ones were based on Magic:AotP.

I think you all can see who I voted for

Re: Springtime Custom Competition Poll - Vote by 4/22

Alright, so it looks like we have a 3 bug tie. That’s awesome!

My entries, Kkyal the Enforcer and Kraul Wing Soldier didn’t make the cut, but they got a few votes. Thanks to everyone who voted for em!

Now to answer a few queries...
@kolakoski - Exoskeletal Blast is intended to target things with Exoskeletons, blasting the bones right off of the poor insect. It was very Pelloth like, but I wanted to keep him from having to destroy your own mini. The important part here is that Kraul Exoskeletons do block Special Attacks. Meanwhile, the Kraul Wing Soldier is meant to only be one part of the Kraul army, later Kraul designs may not have the Exoskeleton markers ready to protect them. The pricing is cheap to allow the player to field other units, while accounting for the sacrificial nature of the units.

@All Your Pie Green bugs may look goofy on a red card, but they really aren’t any other good spots for them. Vakrill looks just as goofy, and the rest of the generals don’t encourage blowing up your own figures.
@Arch-vile Thanks!

Re: Springtime Custom Competition Poll - Vote by 4/22

We do have a three bug tie, which means I have posted the runoff poll.

Thanks again to everyone who entered! Hopefully my computer will be working by the time the wonder is announced so I have to add all those names on my phone.
