Re: The Book of Mika Connour

As potent as the Shadow Dance is, she's still a situational unit (albeit a good one). She only has 2 shadow tiles to place and she can only place them where she's been. On a dungeon map with lots of extra shadow she'd be a game-changer but on any other map the points are probably better spent elsewhere.

Re: The Book of Mika Connour

Getting ready for NHSD, My son and I have been play-testing armies. Our tourney is faction wars (all from one general).

I fielded Vydar:
Mika 110
Krav Maga 100
Agent Skahen 120
Iron Golem 100
Black Wyrmling x2 60
Oto 10
500

against his Jandar:
Sgt Drake (RotV) 110
Thormgrin 80
Finn 80
Raelin (RotV) 80
4th Mass x2 140
490

She took out his Sgt. Drake in one roll w/ Ambush (7 skulls vs. whiff!).

Granted that won't happen very often but it was awesome!!! Take that Thorian Speed!

Re: The Book of Mika Connour

As someone who hasn't gotten the Battle for the Underdark master set yet, I was wondering, is she packaged with two shadow tiles, or is she just an expensive vanilla human in situations like mine?

The hero pack she comes in is packaged with two shadow tiles.

Re: The Book of Mika Connour

You can always order a couple of cheap swamp water tiles and Sharpie them black if you don't get Shadow tiles with her. But buying the Hero pack should come with 2 tiles.

Or simply just order 2 shadow tiles instead.

Tech note: the link to this thread from the index links to the second post here for some reason. Not a big issue, just thought I'd mention it.

Re: The Book of Mika Connour

Just found an error, the "What's Your Army Idea?" link has an extra h in the URL hhttp instead of http.

Also, how is character grading determined? I find Mika Connour to be a good unit, but there is probably a very good reason, beyond being easy to lock down, that she's a C+. Personally, I'd make her a B at least...

Fixed.

She's a single attacking figure. She's not significantly better at that nor is she much more survivable than others in her skill set. She'd probably be B at like 80-90 points or something.

~Dysole, figuring she'll probably find a use for her at some point

Re: The Book of Mika Connour

@Dysole ,

Thanks for the fast clarification, I see it now, though I still feel she should be a B-. I guess it's the C in the C+ that gets me.

Also, I can confirm the link works now.

Re: The Book of Mika Connour

What it really comes down to is that there is a huge advantage to multiple attacks per Order Marker. She grants 1 attack. She can hit with an attack of 7+ dice, or you can have 4 4th Mass throw 8 minimum, and usually 12-16 dice in total.

She also requires a bit of setup to be at her most effective, or maps that have a reasonable amount of shadow spaces already present. On a map with a lot of shadow, she could easily a B- for her unpredictability, but otherwise, she's lucky that she is a C+ figure. She can help facilitate other heroes or squads by placing shadow in key areas, but then you're spending 110 points of your army on someone that gives marginal support.

When you see a letter grade, you can go almost a full letter grade up for figures placed in ideal situations, but that isn't practical.

Be polite: Don't put politics or religion in your signature!
