Re: The Pre-SoV Workshop

Planetar Angel - 029


I am working on this figure and have ran into a fork in the road with potentially divisive consequences so I wanted to run it through here really quick. I'm thinking this guy (Orion) could be a Hero from Aquilla's Kyrie of the Moon Tribe.

The obvious/safe thing to do with any Kyrie would be to make him a Warrior and call him Orion the Kyrie Warrior.

However, what would everyone think of him being a Tribesman and calling him Orion, Kyrie of the Moon Tribe?

Obviously, the name/class would be a split from the rest of the Kyrie but the Kyrie of the Moon Tribe were described as insular so I'm thinking maybe it could fit?

Re: The Pre-SoV Workshop

He looks more like a Jandar or Ullar Kyrie to me. Aquilla Kyrie have insectile wings.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

We know that for sure? I couldn't find much in the compendium for ideas of abilities or description. Another source, I'm assuming?

Re: The Pre-SoV Workshop

To be honest, I'm not sure. We know that each Kyrie has different kinds of wings; Jandar's Kyrie are all a silver metallic, Utgar's Kyrie all have bat-like wings, Ullar's Kyrie all have wings that we usually think of as angelic (white, feathered, and strong-looking), Einar's Kyrie have black bird-like wings like you might see on a hawk or a falcon.

The classic game never gave us Kyrie for Vydar, Valkrill, or Aquilla, but it is reasonable to think that Aquilla's Kyrie will have insectile wings of some sort, based on other figures in her army--whether they look like bee/fly wings, butterfly wings, etc.

So, all that to say, this figure's wings make it look like an Ullar Kyrie to me.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Sounds reasonable. What about the skin then? Would definitely make him stand out from the other Ullar Kyrie.

Re: The Pre-SoV Workshop

Personally I'm fine with the skin color.

It's worth considering whether you would rather go with a different species and home world though.

Two (3?) indirectly related questions:

How do you feel about the clear stand making its way to Heroscape?

What General would you place this "Kyrie" under? Or would it also be worth considering a different species and home world?

Look at the newest Raptorian for the answer about the stands

"I am definitely a mad man with a box."

"They are too numerous to fight. What shall we do?" "Fight anyway."

"You can never defeat another if you know not how to defeat yourself."

Good call! My guess on General would be Einar or Valkrill.

The skin color doesn't really matter. Empress Kiova and the Einar Imperium's skin don't match, and neither does Kelda's with Raelin and Concan.

The wings definitely look like an Ullar Kyrie, though. We haven't seen any canon Aquilla Kyrie, but I agree with caps that they should ideally have insect wings.

Flight stands are already used for the Zettian Deathwings and Clawfoot Interceptor. Swaysil, a unit currently under SoV review, also uses one. It shouldn't be a problem.

For the general, I've always thought that sculpt looks like a perfect Vydar Kyrie. It's a tough call because we never saw an official Vydar Kyrie (and Calibrax is a traitor related to Emperor Andask), but the wings don't look so similar to the Einar Imperium that she has to follow Einar, in my opinion.

Regarding the clear stand, I would expect the "standard" way to base the figures continues to be via their feet (the raptorians are baseable that way), but I have no opinion otherwise.


That figure probably fits best for Einar, but opinions will likely vary.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Re: The Pre-SoV Workshop

In Thormun’s Journal (Entry #27 to be exact) it says this about Vydar, “His wings are great black-feathered things.” I assume Vydar’s people would have similar wings.

Also in Entry #45 it says, “The large carrion birds that have followed us for so long through the mountains are finally descending. As I prepare myself for battle, Raelin points out that these are not birds. They are Kyrie of the Moon Tribe.” Last time I checked, birds don’t have insect-like wings.
