Re: Robot Workshop

I'd be leery of pushing too far into the huge horde of killer robots angle. Any 'bonding' style power should be flexible enough to allow for that kind of 'draft 8 as an army' game play but also allow for someone to draft 1 with another Android hero that is not a Terminator as part of a wider army build. That is why I grabbed the move or attack with 2 Android's power from HoSS. We can easily rework it into a different named power with different mechanics, but that is the general idea direction I was going for. A future Skynet card that allowed for more Horde tactics makes sense.

I could see flexing Termination Programing to also impact any of the uncommon ones you draft into the same army, that's a pretty good idea. So one hunter could lead some of the more generic skinless ones as part of a termination mission.

Re: Robot Workshop

A future SKYNET computer system or something sounds like a really cool idea! I love the repair idea and the "they all shut down if it's destroyed" idea.

I could see Termination Programming being added to the Uncommon card and existing on each of the three cards. I would resist that "all" language because of how it would stack across the powers. Each card should choose its own target and move with its own target. I think that's thematic enough. If they want the same targets, that's OK too.

I personally like the move or attack with 2 version. It's nice and tactical. These guys should feel relentless and tough, but shouldn't feel like an overwhleming force against superheroes. Especially not the uncommon ones.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: Robot Workshop

As I see it the Exo-Skeleton ones are an earlier model that is simpler and cheaper (in terms of material needs) to produce and so it's produced in large numbers, then used as fairly straight forward shock troops for Skynet. We usually see them moving around in numbers (10+) and doing more trivial tasks like prisoner transfer or security sweeps. I've often wondered if they shouldn't be called T-700's or something.

The T-800's we meet in T1 are the next evolution up, packed full of more sophisticated programming/targeting/hardware/software and of course the extra layer of fake skin (which could serve as an extra layer of protection vs. bullets/damage since it could be some kind of advanced rubber that just looks like skin). They are produced in smaller numbers (100's vs. 1000's) and sent on more difficult individual missions for Skynet that require a higher degree of independence. As such they should be slightly harder to take down (tough/4 life for the uncommons vs. unstoppable resilience/5 life on the UH) and have a more specific task based special power (Infiltration/Termination/Protection). The uncommon ones then shouldn't have a specific task based power, but rather a 'group think' type of mechanism (ie. synchronized assault) that allows them to function more as a generic threat in larger numbers.

One of the T-800's is still loyal to Skynet and actively hunting a target in the past, while one has been captured and reprogrammed to help the human's fight back against Skynet. That's generally how we got to where we are now with the 3 design approach. I tried to make one design that could serve two or even 3 roles but it proved to difficult too capture everything on just one card worth of 3-4 powers.

I believe it's the T-90.

Gotcha. I’m good with that take, YK.

Re: Robot Workshop

Good to know, thanks! T-90 is a weird choice for a designation, that generally means they made 710 or 71 (if they jump up 10 every model instead of 1) other models that before they got to the T-800. The liquid metal model in T2 was a T-1000, so either 200, 20 or 2 models of evolution beyond the T-800. Of course they may just not use the number designation in that way, but a computer mind like Skynet you would think would be pretty orderly and generic in it's naming designations.

Re: Robot Workshop

It could be counting the number of revisions, not all of which might result in a mass produced model.

Re: Robot Workshop

Yeah, so their are 71 different upgrades added to the T-90 that turns it into a T-800, and 20 different upgrades added to the T-800 that turns it into a T-1000 (one of which is the liquid metal upgrade). That works for me.
