Re: Scytale's customs - Wildfire Embers highlighted (3/21/16

I love this custom. I remember when you first released it. As I read Wildfire, a player who move 6 must still use those 6, and not a different set of 6, to attack. Is that correct?

Yes, that's the intent at least.

Six attacks is a lot, but they're weak attacks, and these guys die really fast. Either way it's over quickly.

Re: Scytale's customs - Wildfire Embers highlighted (3/21/16

It totally delivers. Did they participate in the Scytaleverse tournament that happened a while back? How'd they do? I imagine that you don't really need to pair them with anything, but if you did, you might take some long-range bomber like Syvarris or the Krav, just to pick off strays and force a shy or turtled opponent to move a little.

Yeah, the Ice Devils are a pretty bad matchup for them. Might have been ok but his defense rolls brushed off everything I threw at them.

When I was developing the custom for the contest I did a lot of playtesting. I was shocked at how well they did against many different types of armies. Amazingly, they are able to throw down with the likes of the 4th and 10th, and they're nasty against low-figure range squads. The Wildfire's ability to assault a starting zone is just nuts, and screens are simply ignored. For a while I gave them one Defense, but that was surprisingly too good.

Really weird to play. It honestly doesn't feel like individual units.

Re: Scytale's customs - Aurora highlighted (3/28/16)

unit highlight 3/28/16

I wanted to cap off my last release with something light and whimsical but still fitting in Heroscape. And Heroscape was lacking a unicorn. So Aurora was born.

There are a few directions one could take a unicorn design. I decided to go the filler route and do something simple and cheap. Being a horse (or rather, horse-like creature), some version of Carry seemed appropriate, but this design had to be distinct from Theracus in some way (and not just a cheaper non-flying version). So I went the opposite route.

While Theracus is designed to carry a figure into a good position, I wanted Aurora to carry a figure out of a bad position. Seemed like a unicorn-ish thing to do. To do that, getting to the figure to Carry had to be free or nearly so. Tapping into unicorn lore I came up with Mystic Call.

Not an especially great figure, but at the very least it's a 3/3 hero that can appear on the front lines when needed. If things go your way, Aurora can pull an Alastair or Raelin out of an enemy crowd in the nick of time.

Re: Scytale's customs - Aurora highlighted (3/28/16)

Very neat Idea for the unicorn. There was a bit of discussion awhile back on a unicorn custom but I think your more simple approach does it more justice. I wouldn't change a thing about it.

Terrific custom, Scy. Ever given thought to submitting it for SoV consideration?

Thanks! It's always an honor for someone to suggest SoV-worthiness.

I've never submitted anything to the SoV, actually, nor seriously considered doing so. Not sure how the SoV would take to a niche unit like this. Availability of the figure is really bad anyway.

Re: Scytale's customs - Aurora highlighted (3/28/16)

I imagine there are other Unicorn figures out there should someone want to proxy. Or you could just turn a regular horse into a unicorn without much effort. That card certainly has a nice theme to it and fits a unique role when army building. I think I'd want to add it to any army with a healer, then rescue my injured warriors and heal them back up before sending them back out for round two.

I know the Legendary Encounters line has a Unicorn, and that's still in production. Just a thought

I like where you went on Aurora @Scytale . I did a unicorn custom myself thought it is a little more offensive oriented.
