He was a huge costing headache. The idea came to me rather late in the competition submission timeframe, so I didn't have any time to playtest (and then finals came along shortly thereafter), which I think may be the only way to accurately price him. His strength varies greatly by the nature of his powers, from using markers for health to having anywhere from 2 to 5 defense.

I'd agree that 95 is too high (my initial price was 90, but I upped it at the last minute), but 50 seems a little dangerous to me. If the player leaves him in their starting zone building up markers until the clean-up phase, then he could be very powerful. Once I wrap up some of my other units and can begin testing him, I intend to start at 80 and adjust the price as needed until he feels right, which I personally anticipate being in the 70-90 range.

True - let us know, I'd be interested to see how he ends up.

Re: Astroking112's Custom Units [Update 5/2/18]

I'll definitely update the thread with any changes that I make! It may be a little while before I get back to Arboris since I have other units to worry about right now, but I definitely don't intend to abandon him.

You have some very interesting customs. They might need some playtesting before you can make their army card.

Thanks for checking out my stuff! Were there any units in particular that you were concerned about the balance of?

I'm still learning the ropes of PhotoShop, so I haven't quite gotten to the point where I can churn out a card pretty quickly yet. For the time being, I'm just relying on old-fashioned text to get the concepts across.

Your custom Eltris sounds like something from the movie Dragonheart.

I haven't seen that movie, but I googled it and it seems interesting. Most of my inspiration for her came from the book series Eragon, which was a personal favorite of mine whilst growing up. Dragon riders have always held an appeal for me as a result, so I felt motivated to create one for HeroScape's world.

Re: Astroking112's Custom Units [Update 5/2/18]

Dang I remember reading Eragon way back when I was in elementary, good book. Honestly the movie was ok but the book outshines it by a mile, anywho good luck on your dragon rider customs I look forward to seeing their progression.��

I have an even stronger opinion about the movie being much worse than the book, but to be fair, that's probably to be expected of anyone who loves the source material (although the movie was one of the least faithful adaptations that I've seen).

Thanks! After Eltris (hopefully) passes into the SoV, I'll work on developing some of my other ideas further!

Re: Astroking112's Custom Units [Update 5/15/18]

I just added a new Common Hero for the Black Hart squad that I developed. He's a double-spaced brute who should help them get their Group Tackle bonus more often.

Re: Astroking112's Custom Units [Update 5/19/18]

I made a smaller update to this thread today, adding a glyph to each of the expansion "packs" that I've listed so far.

Boots of Valda (Permanent Treasure Glyph)
Move +1
This figure may move one more space.

This seems like a natural Treasure Glyph choice to me, and I'm surprised that the closest that we saw officially released was the temporary Elixir of Speed. I'm somewhat fond of the simple permanent Treasure Glyphs that just boost a stat (like the attack and defense ones), so I ended up posting this glyph idea first.

Glyph of Syn (Permanent Power Glyph)
Blind
All figures with a range of 3 or more must subtract 1 from their range.

This is largely a boost to melee units, giving them a valuable glyph to look for besides just the Glyph of Thorian. Visually, I view it as a sandstorm obscuring vision, which should be a good enough excuse for a little bit of metagaming. Since it negatively impacts your own units as well (much like the Glyph of Rannveig), I doubt it'll be seen in any tournaments, but it should be a fun distraction nonetheless.

Re: Astroking112's Custom Units [Update 5/19/18]

Astroking112, here’s some feedback on your Black Harts/Heavy Tackler faction. Keep in mind, I really like this faction, so good job!

The Heavy Tackler card says he’s 35 points and the Traits and Abilities section says he’s only 30. Which is it? Likewise, the Heavy Tackler’s card says Large 7 and the Traits and Abilities sections says he Large 8. So, which is it? And while I’m at it, is the Heavy Tackler a double base or a single base? Maybe I just missed it, but if I didn’t, please put that info in the Traits and Abilities section somewhere (and if I did, let me know where it is!).

On other matters, the Loyal personality of the Black Harts and the Inspiring personality of the Heavy Tackler seems to indicate a follower/leader relationship between them. If that is the theme you are going for, then I suggest changing the name of the Team Player power to something like Team Captain or Team Leader to show that the Heavy Tacklers are at the head of the team; they aren’t just a part of it.
