Darius23__14's Customs

So I have been on this site for a while, and have had ideas for customs for a while and am finally posting them.

First up are;
Marrden Grinubs(or Nagrots)
Spoiler Alert!

Next are:
Pummelroot Ancient
Spoiler Alert!

Pummelroot Elementars
Spoiler Alert!

Any advice would be appreciated greatly!

Re: Darius23__14's Customs

Having an infected hivelord without the infection marker is the better option. That would require less wording and its kinda pointless to have a marker for something that won't change for the entire game.

Maybe a full free turn after the hivelord is wounded but nothing after that. That gives it more of the "Burst" feel.

As a possible twist, make it so they can hop back on/in the hivelord if the hivelord moves through them, starts its turn next to them, maybe even the hivelord can call them back. Sort of a reload to offset the lag of the burst. This would encourage keeping them near the hivelord, while being more interesting than bonus attack.

Or course, I'm not sure how that would affect cost. They may be worth 50 with the above suggestions. I've never played unit that operating like these guys.

Re: Darius23__14's Customs

Thanks for your response! I see what you're saying about simply selecting a figure. I don't want to limit it to just hivelords, or just one figure. I like the idea of being able to infect the hive as a huge unique hero giving it a boost as well and let's say in a larger game you want to infect TKN but not SBN would it still be simple enough to choose TKN without an identifier?

I initially wanted them to have a full turn immediately after bursting but that could interrupt an opponents turn which is just confusing. Placing and moving does not interrupt a turn, just changes what happens In the turn (like in instances of Scatter and Smoke Screen).

I hadn't thought of reabsorbing them, I was thinking with no defense if they were able to engage an attacking figure they would become higher priority drawing attention off their host but also dying and beING reborn rather quickly. But now your thoughts have my brain wheels a'turnin.

Re: Darius23__14's Customs

These guys are a very unique unit. I like them being able to take turns without OMs which is good since their stats suck. I'm just not sure if it's worth wounding your own Marro in advance, but I'd have to see them in action to see for myself. Good job with these

I think I assumed you only wanted hivelords without actually paying attention. As to answer your question: the Greenscales do it, I don't see any reason your parasites can't.

You could have it be a (much) higher roll, and then they parasites attack as autowounds.

Glad to be of inspiration!

Yes it is, it is one of my first customs and the only one that I have actually posted to this site. http://http://www.heroscapers.com/co...ad.php?t=52735
Though I have not playtested them or adjusted them since I posted them.

It's technically a Marrden Nagrot, more similar to the Nagrubs, which are in my opinion some of the coolest looking common squad creatures. You can get a decent amount for relatively cheap if you are willing to paint and base them.
Those are really cool, love the parasitic spawn ability! I actually used to play Tyranids, so I still have some of these guys laying around. I might just paint them up like this

Re: Darius23__14's Customs

Both Pummel and Splintered Rebirth are very cool power ideas. Probably unreliable but very neat nonetheless--interested to see how they'd perform in playtesting. Great work on those
