Re: The Book of Skrull Assassin (Design Phase)

Do the Hand Ninja work with common heroes? If not, might be another reason to go common here.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: The Book of Skrull Assassin (Design Phase)

Looking at them, surprisingly enough, no, they don't - Unique Heroes and Unique Squads, but not Common Heroes.

Re: The Book of Skrull Assassin (Design Phase)

Might be desirable to avoid Ham Ninja synergy as a cost driver.

Re: The Book of Skrull Assassin (Design Phase)

Common kind of makes sense for how this kind of character works in a story as well. A Skrull Assassin will unveil themselves, then immediately attack their target and either succeed or not before getting taken out. So having them be a fairly fragile unit makes sense.

On the other ham, we already have a Common Hero Skrull so it would be nice for these guys to be the Uncommon ones as they’re clearly more elite, and it would make them more distinct.

Re: The Book of Skrull Assassin (Design Phase)

That’s the big question, right? If we go common, are these distinct enough from the Infiltrators?

To me, a big part of that depends on point cost. If these guys are like...30 points as a Common Unit that’s going to feel very similar to the Infiltrators.

Re: The Book of Skrull Assassin (Design Phase)

Do the Skrull have a word or name for them or what they do that's different than Assassin? Kind of like a Hitman is an Assassin. I know I'm generally the "synergy yes!" guy, but I'm not sure if we'd be better not having any synergy for this design. If they get priced into being part of armies that already have strong Assassin synergy going for them, then I don't know how much fun or effective they would be without it. Higher point Assassins with more tricks up their sleeve and more staying power can do just fine without the Assassin synergy backing them up, but a low point figure that only gets a couple of shots to do something might end up too price dependent on the synergy web making them better.

I think that word is Infiltrator.

Re: The Book of Skrull Assassin (Design Phase)

Yeah I guess I'd need to know the goal here. Are you just wanting a stronger infiltrator?

Would I want it to be everything I love...sure...but that's just not realistic so I'm going to focus on finding things that will make me unhappy and work on fixing those.

Re: The Book of Skrull Assassin (Design Phase)

Actually,I was keen on the Assassin synergy web. I do like going common to avoid them playing nice with the Hand though. Going back to common, I'd bump their defense to a 4 to keep them in the same ballpark.

Giving us:

SECRET INVASION
Skrull Assassins do not start the game on the battlefield. Skrull Assassins can only enter the battlefield when a small or medium figure that is not a Skrull is destroyed. You may replace that figure immediately, if possible, with one of your own Skrull Assassins that has not yet been placed on the battlefield.

PHANTOM WALK
Skrull Assassins can move through all figures and are never attacked when leaving an engagement.

ASSASSINATION
When attacking with this Skrull Assassin, each skull rolled counts as an additional hit. After this Skrull Assassin inflicts one or more wounds on a figure with its normal attack, if that figure has only 1 life remaining, this Skrull Assassin may attack that figure one additional time.

Re: The Book of Skrull Assassin (Design Phase)

I could see Defense going up even higher, to 5 or 6, to represent trickery and training and transforming. I think higher point cost, and higher survivability, would differentiate them well against the cheaper Skrulls.

Fine with Assassin here as well, as long as we plan around that synergy.

Re: The Book of Skrull Assassin (Design Phase)

Yeah, I think that works. As long as they're 50+ points I think they'll be different enough from the Infiltrators. And I wouldn't want to go Infiltrator for Class because then it's odd they're Infiltrators and the Infiltrators aren't Infiltrators, you know? So I support staying Assassin and going Common.

Fwiw, the Calculator puts them at about 90 points, but I don't think the Calculator functions well with really low-life figures, so I think 60 points is just fine for a starting place for testing.
