White Knight's custom army cards: Updated 11-7-2011

UPDATED 11/7/2011

Over the summer I made a bunch of new customs for figures we had. I'm going to add them in by General.

UTGAR'S CUSTOMS

GLURK
A hero for the goblins.


FOMORIAN GIANT


EFREETI


DRAEGOLOTH
Inspired by Dok's Mallok custom. (Underdark Command and Drow Enhancement are from his card.)


XTX-2


NUBLINEX
A new race of aliens.


SLITH 'THON
Cult of the Dragon


SKALMAD THE TROLL KING
CHCG24 APPROVED!


BLADERAGER TROLL


DOOM
It's sad that this is the only dark dwarf I have (no friends), but I wanted to capture his hatred of normal dwarves.


GORM
Troglodyte leader.


TROGLODYTE GUARD


OGRE VANGUARD
(smaller than the D&D ogres, but larger than the humans)


FIRE GIANTS
Some buddies for Shurrak.


SHADOW GIANTS



AQUILLA'S CUSTOMS
Quamrak is my repaint of Mimring--giving Aquilla her blue dragon. Took and Sing are wild Kyrie, living deep in the jungles. (Project Pokemon members might notice that Fury Assault is very similar to Scyther's Fury Cutter.)

Dagolam is a more powerful version of Syvarris. Skywolf is powerful until he throws that tomahawk and Jotun stands on it (so he can't get it back).

WINGS OF WHITE OSPREY


DAGOLAM


TAIN QUICKSILVER


QUAMRAK


OBORO


TOOK


SING


SKYWOLF


COMANCHE BRAVES



JANDAR'S CUSTOMS
Shaladar is really fun to play--although I might need to raise her points a little. Lady Jennifer is a figure created for my daughter who loves animals. And I had to do something with all the army men my sons have collected!

SIR JUSTIN


SHALADAR


LADY JENNIFER


ROBOSAPIEN


SNOW APE


SNOW TROOPERS


DESERT ELITE



EINAR'S CUSTOMS
The Crystal Guard is another unit I haven't had a chance to try yet but I really like the design. I have two Crystal Guard figures that I plan to use together.

I don't have any of the official cowboys, but I have some cowboy figures from when I was a kid. They are a little bigger scale, but my boys don't mind.


STONE GIANT


CRYSTAL GUARD


TEXAS TRIO


RIFLEMEN


GATLIN GANG



ULLAR CUSTOMS
I really love the sculpt for Findolin. I wanted to make use of the eagle (like Sonlan makes use of his dragon), so I made the eagle a distraction.
Zehir was pretty much my son's design--he liked the idea of Champion's Glory.

FINDOLIN

ZEHIR



VYDAR CUSTOMS
I had some Dr. Who figures from a garage sale, and I saw an awesome Star Wars figure that looked perfect as an Agent. So Vydar added the Blackrock Foundation Agents.

AGENT ZERO


BLACKROCK FOUNDATION


SHADAR-KAI




VALKRILL CUSTOMS

SKELETONS


UNDYING SOLDIER


DIRE GUARD


BONE CYCLOPS
This is a less powerful version of the Bone Cyclops in my D&D thread.


XANTUS
This is a much less powerful version of the Sorrowsworn Reaper in my D&D thread.


KRAEN
My sons really felt this guy should fight for Valkrill.




Older cards:

BALORN


GILEANA


BARD
(I'll always remember how Bard took out Smaug in the Hobbit with just one arrow!)


THAK-TUAZIN
(My youngest son loves to play this guy because of his speed and jumping with those elven boots. We still can't agree on how to pronounce his name correctly.)


DWARVEN GUNNERS
(After playtesting, I realized that Tough 2 is really hard to overcome. The only army that did well against these guys had Grimnak--> CHOMP!)

DULORN


UTEM GUARDS
I made these guys up last year. It sort of reminds me of the new Exoskeleton ability.

DELMARIN
(Powerful attacks, but really needs a defense boost or he's out quickly)


KERAKK

TUROG GOBLINS




I didn't say it, but they can be affected by their own rockets.

Re: White Knight's custom army cards

Very nice. The wording could use some major cleanup though. I'll start with the Archers. How about "Apache Archers may double their movement. An Apache Archer that doubled its movement may not attack this turn"?

Re: White Knight's custom army cards

You've got some nice abilities on these cards. With a little editing to wording to make them more "official" and some tweaks to their stats, you've got a great start to some cool customs.

Bazooka Unit
For simplicity's sake, you might drop the separate rolls for the attack. Maybe lower it to 3 attack against the target and all adjacent figures. I see where you are going with it, extreme damage to the target and splash damage to those around it. Bazookas are pinpoint weapons designed to penetrate armor and destroy a single vehicle. What about keeping the attack at 5 and add "if the chosen figure is destroyed by Rocket Launcher Special Attack, roll 2 attack dice once for all adjacent figures. Each figure rolls defense dice separately.

Apache Archers
Wind Walk is a cool ability, but with a base move of 7, it may be a bit broken. They are moving on foot, so a base move of 5 might be more appropriate. The other option would be to reduce the amount of the bonus movment.
Wind Walk
If Apache Archers do not attack this turn they may move an additional 4 spaces.

Aramist has some neat abilities. I've seen attacks like Enchanted Arrows that had cleaner wording, but I can't remember what figure had them. Let me give it a shot

Enchanted Arrows Special Attack
Aramist begins each turn with 5 attack dice. When using Enchanted Arrows Special Attack, Aramist may attack with 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 dice. Aramist may continue attacking until all attack dice are rolled. Aramist may attack the same or different figure with each attack.

I think it reads something like that.

Missile Shield
Aramist and all friendly, adjacent figures may not be targeted by normal, non-adjacent attacks.

Hope this helps.

Also, if you are interested in making your cards look more "official" I would recommend visiting GreyOwl's Customizing Tools page here. He has templates for official Heroscape cards, dozens of his own creations, panels, fog, class/personality listings. These are usable with Photoshop and GIMP (GIMP is what I use).

Keep up the good work! And by that I mean playing games with your kids!

Re: White Knight's custom army cards

Welcome to the site, White Knight!

First, I'd like to direct your attention to GreyOwl's customization tools found here. He has some great templates that will allow you to make your customs look very official.


Armist

For Enchanted Arrows Special Attack, 5 automatic skulls is incredibly powerful. That's equivilant to rolling 10 attack dice at range 6. I'm not specifically saying it's too powerful, but you should really increase his cost dramatically, if you want to keep it so strong.

For Missle Shield, official cards never describe what is happening in the power text. The description is always left in the power's name. Perhaps you can change the name to Magical Shield or something like that. Then, change the wording to: Opponent's figures must be adjacent to Armist, and all friendly figures adjacent to Armist, to attack them with a normal attack.

EDIT: Wow. Super-ninja by Mac122.

My first ever I think!
I misread the Enchanted Arrows - completely missed the auto-skull part.
I have to agree with Balantai, up to 5 auto-skulls against a single figure is huge.

Re: White Knight's custom army cards

I'll take your suggestions (especially about my unofficial wording) and update the cards in a day or two.

About Aramist
5 automatic skulls is a lot, but Q9 averages 4 to 5 skulls a turn as well--with a range of 6 (although not 4 to 5 skulls for a single attack). And Q9 has 7 defense dice. They both cost 180 points. Putting Q9 against Aramist, I'm thinking Q9 wins more than half the time. I'll run some tests to check that out.

This is a very good comparison and is actually the same one that I used. This guy can get a massive first strike, but will fall in the second turn. I think he has just the right balance of risk, reward, and sacrifice. He would be a fun unit to play, but I think he would fall more often than not against the competative official units.

Re: White Knight's custom army cards

The fact that Q9 has 7 defense is exactly why your version is extremely powerful. Q9 gets at most, 3 attacks of 3 dice. This is an average of 1.5 skulls per attack. If Q9 was attacking Q9, his 7 defense will mathematically, defend all three attacks. But if Aramist attacks with 5 skulls, it will average almost 3 wounds per turn on Q9.

EDIT: In other words, if both Q9 and Aramist attack a figure with 0 defense, they are equally as strong. But as a figure's defense increases, Q9's value drops at a must faster rate than Aramist.

I think that if you lowered his move to 5 and the range of the attack to 4 that would balance out this end. Queglix Gun still has a much higher range than Enchanted Arrows. Which I think is well regarded as the most important stat.

Re: White Knight's custom army cards

Also, keep in mind that you don't see many "automatic skulls" in official Heroscape. If I'm not mistaken, Grungebob said they don't create cards with automatic skulls because it's gamebreaking. What if the power was worded similar to Q9.

Range 4. Attack Special.
Artimus starts each turn with 10 attack dice. Choose any figure within range and attack by rolling up to 10 attack dice. Major Q9 may keep making special attacks until he has rolled all 10 attack dice. Major Q9 may target the same or different figures with each attack.

This is essentially the same, but at least adds some of the dice rolling back into the power.

Re: White Knight's custom army cards

Definately better. He would need something else to balance out the weakening though. Possibly a raise in life?

Re: White Knight's custom army cards

I understand the "no automatic skulls" policy. I'll have to think about that.

Last night I tested Aramist against Q9. Three of the times I had Q9 win initiative, the other three I had Aramist win the initiative. No height advantages. Just a 1 on 1 battle on a flat battlefield.

Q9 won 4-2.

All battles went 2 rounds except for the two battles that Aramist won (Q9 rolled 0 shields for one battle and 1 shield for the other).

So far, Aramist has not been a gamebreaker. Those 5 automatic skulls are scary, but they lose power when you divide them up. Tonight I'm going to try him against 2-4 squads of Deathreavers. With their 5 defense, should Aramist divide out the skulls 2-2-1, 3-2, 4-1, or 2-1-1-1? Most likely Aramist can only take out 1 or 2 rats at time. I'll post results after I check it out.
