Position the heroes, and try to take full advantage of Arktos's attack bonus. Keeping within 4 of Raelin will make the Makwa annoying with their saving throw. Make the opponent choose to kill one of your heroes. Since all the heroes provide variable bonuses to the squads (either situational attack, situational defense, or horde movement), your opponent will nearly be forced to ignore the squads (who can pelt the enemy with ranged throws).

Re: The Book of Teeth of the Makwa

Hey, just a small question for the designers here (as I'm currently translating this card ^^)... Why "Theeth" of the Makwa ? I guess Makwa is the name of a Tribe. But I can't see the point for the use of "teeth"... ^^

Speaking just as someone who uses these, Teeth just feels like a title that a warrior of a tribe might be called. Similar to something like "The blades of Auir" or "The fists of Ironhaven". These are the titles of specific groups within, an organization. They could have called them "Spears of the Makwa", and it would be the same idea. It's a title for a group, but it doesn't necessarily have anything to do with what the group actually does. They are "Teeth", because that is their title, and they are from the Makwa tribe, Hence "Teeth of the Makwa".

Re: The Book of Teeth of the Makwa

Ah okay I can see the point @Leaf It
Feels just kinda off when translated in French... Being the Spear, the Hand, the Fists of a groups feels like a pride, but about the Teeths... don't know, it might be me. ^^

If I remember correctly, I think that "Makwa" means "bear." So in this case, the "Teeth of the Makwa" fits better than spears, etc. because they're in the bear tribe and bears use their teeth. (So Teeth of the Bear vs Spears of the Bear.) It's also why their defensive ability is called "Shield of the Great Bear," in reference to their deity.

Re: The Book of Teeth of the Makwa

There are many differences between the card displayed and the transcription in the OP, and a couple of them affect gameplay. I'll list everything I noticed...
Quote:
HUNTING PARTY
After taking a turn with a Scout or Tribesman Hero you control, you may immediately move up to six Teeth of the Makwa you control up to 3 spaces each.
  • The card says "Teeth of the Makwa figures."
  • The card uses the numeral 6; transcription says "six."
  • The phrase "a Scout or Tribesman Hero" is a bit ambiguous concerning whether or not the Scout has to also be a Hero. If it was not intended to require the scout to be a hero, then I would recommend inverting the sentence to "A Tribesman Hero or a Scout." If it was intended, then you could deal with this in a few different ways, such as "a Scout Hero or Tribesman Hero" or "a Hero who is a Scout or Tribesman" or somesuch.
Quote:
SHIELD OF THE GREAT BEAR
When a Teeth of the Makwa figure you control receives one or more wounds, you may roll the 20-sided die before removing that figure. If you roll a 16 or higher, ignore any wounds that figure just received.
  • The card has a "16" in the power's title.
  • The card does not actually say "you control," but seems like it should.
  • The card says "before removing that figure, roll the 20-sided die." The transcription says "you may roll the 20-sided die before removing that figure."
  • The card does not say "that figure just received."
  • The inversion above is not critical, but since the card says neither "you control" nor "you may," this would take effect whenever any friendly or even enemy Teeth of the Makwa receives wounds, and it sounds mandatory. Meaning that when one player's figure receives wounds, that player and every other player who also has this card in his army are all commanded to roll the d20. I think we all know what was intended, but still it seems like the card should use the appropriate phrases.

I'll fix the transcription in the OP. Thanks for bringing up the discrepancy.

OP updated with an accurate transcription. Note that the wording for SotGB is cribbed directly from Stealth Armor 15 from the Microcorp Agents:

Re: The Book of Teeth of the Makwa

If you have an order marker on Mohican River Tribe is this order applicable?
  • Mohican River Tribe take a turn. If t least two MRT are engaged:
  • Take a Turn with a Unique Tribesman such as Brave Arrow or Makwa Tribesman
  • Move up to 6 Teeth of the Makwa using Hunting Party

If this is true, you can attack up to 5 times (Makwa Tribesman can attack twice) and move up to 10 figures on one Order Marker. This seems pretty good - although they have low attack/defense stats it is very spammy. Anyone have experience doing this.
