Re: The Book of Pelloth

I'd much rather a figure who blows up roborats
Good sculpt, though.

Re: The Book of Pelloth

I tried in 3 games to use Pelloth as a hero killer, alternating attacks with him and the Deepworms. I'd take a turn with them, then Pelloth, blowing one up each time, and keeping other heavy-hitter heroes in reserve to go in and mop up. I did.... OK, actually. But just OK, and this statement comes with the disclaimer that I'll often choose armies by theme, and that often means having the odds stacked against me.

rolls one less defense die against figures who like him.

Re: The Book of Pelloth

If Pelloth attacks Tul-Bak-Ra with Lolth's Wrath, and he places a Marro Divider next to him with Teleport Reinforcements, can Pelloth then choose that Marro Divider to receive the next wound from Lolth's Wrath?

I'd say yes, because I'm pretty sure each wound is resolved before you deal out the next one (for example, if you were to give a Microcorp Agent a wound, he would roll for Stealth Armor before you decided who would get the next wound). I think the "one at a time" wording, similar to (for example) Braxas's PAB, supports this.

And the card also says "one at a time," choose a figure within 2 clear sight spaces of the chosen Drow.

So yes, teleported Marro can be targeted by Lolth's Wrath.

Re: The Book of Pelloth

I agree with both of you.

Note that this is yet another way that LWSA is unique. Every other special attack that can affect an untargeted figure has you choose all affected figures at once.

Re: The Book of Pelloth

For anyone who wants a better version of the Deepwyrm Drow & Pelloth, see Competitive Unit Congress versions of the cards (below). Personally these changes makes the units a B+ as opposed to D. The only other option is to wait for C3V/SoV to make a Drow commander similar to my VORGRYN or @dok 's MALLOK custom.

Deepwyrm Drow CUC
Add Drow Hero Bonding: Before taking a turn with Deepwyrm Drow, you may first take a turn with any Drow Hero you control.


Pelloth CUC
Change LOLTH'S WRATH SPECIAL ATTACK as follows: "...that is within 5 clear sight spaces of Pelloth and roll 3 4 attack dice. One at a time for each skull rolled, you may inflict 1 wound on any small or medium figure that is within 2 clear sight spaces of the chosen Drow figure..."

Re: The Book of Pelloth

They still kinda suck, even with the buff.

Give me 3 squads of KoW and eldgrim and I will steamroll two squads of drow/pelloth 9/10 times based on the stats alone.

Drow are cool, but they just are not something you can draft in competitive play. They just can't hold their points worth against nearly anything.

They are okay with this version of Pelloth, but with Estivara bonding, they are even better.

Re: The Book of Pelloth

Yeah I'm currently working on some rework of the drow to make them a lot more competitive because as it attached that are quite... Err... "Situational" we'll say. Also for characters from the Underdark they sure could use a better Shadow ability.

Re: The Book of Pelloth

Not that anyone would ever do this, but Xundar could be used for Lolth's Wrath
