Well ,then, you ain't playing him right.

It's simply a matter of knowing which elemental to use when. And, of course, as you alluded to, getting good dice rolls, especially for bringing them back.

I don't know if I like the idea of a Firestorm/All Kurrok and Elementals army. Just the thought, the mere possibility, of a ranged attacker getting some good rolls against some poor defense rolls from Kurrok, destroying him and suddenly leaving my entire army as a bunch of single activation figures.

I think I'd much rather play Kurrok (120) with around 6 Elementals (180-230) for somewhere between 300-350 points, giving me the remainder to work in other squads or heroes that could back them up, or--worst case scenario--take over the offensive in case Kurrok falls.

You can't hurt Mika with knockback "by knocking her off her preferred shadow hex," unless she's used up both of her own two Shadow tiles, as she takes them wherever she goes! Of course, she can take "collateral damage" from the KB effect where it puts her in an unenviable situation in general.

From the very first post, some time in August. If you looked at the HouseMouse site, they say they expect them around August 17th.

I would be shocked if we don't see some boosters at Gen Con next month.

I got that much, I just didn't know if there was an exact date yet.

Grah, I'm further behind then I thought. I'm just now getting SoTM... so by the time I get this... it'll be...2020.

Worst case of lag ever.

At any rate, I'm excited.

Never mind that date, I want Nov to come. With all the hints and hype D3. I bet it will have new Zombies in it.

I would rather bite the belly of the beast as it swallows me whole then run from it!
