Tandros Kreel Pre-Release Discussion Thread

I'm making some Pre-Release Discussion Threads so that no one needs to worry about books right now. We can keep all the excitement of finally seeing everything in these threads. The books could be created later, like when the figures actually come out and we can play with them instead of rampantly TheoryScaping. The idea is to keep the books a little cleaner, but still provide a place for figure-specific discussion until later.

Re: Tandros Kreel Pre-Release Discussion Thread

I think this guy should be Raelin's date. Park him next to her and when the enemy comes, they'll have to get through his 6 defence and 7 lives before they can touch her. Way cool. Add in Ana standing on his other side and I don't even want to talk about it.

Re: Tandros Kreel Pre-Release Discussion Thread

As I looked over the powers I thought to myself that this was a pretty respectable figure, then I looked at the attack and defense and range, all pretty good looking...and then I saw his life. My jaw hit the floor. This guy has insane survivability with 4 defense and 7 life. You might as well just send him out to absorb wounds all day.

Re: Tandros Kreel Pre-Release Discussion Thread

This guy has a nickname from me already. "Rat Slicer". With the cleave, he kills 2 rats in 1 OM, and then 2 more can move into the swing of his sword. He also is quite the shield with that combat challenge. Park him next to Raelin and Q9, and I fear for the opponent that approaches.

Re: Tandros Kreel Pre-Release Discussion Thread

Combat Challenge makes him my favorite defender (I'm not saying anything, I'm just saying) to date; this is what a real tank should be doing. He forces you to attack him.

He has his faults, but that keeps him balanced . If Combat Challenge forced ranged attacks too, he would be absolutely broken! His 5 move and lack of bonding is a huge balancing point in the rest of his obvious power. Without bonding he will suffer the one attack problems most heroes do, and may sit in the start zone until late game when his powers (cleave) are less useful. Bring him out early to use cleave more and you'll find that without the proper support he will die quickly.

OMs on this guy are certainly warranted, but at what point of the game?

Re: Tandros Kreel Pre-Release Discussion Thread

Sweet! I love the way they added a "taunt" type ability. This guy is a tank all the way, I can't wait to use him.

Re: Tandros Kreel Pre-Release Discussion Thread

Oh, man... A gladiator!? My only thoughts on giving him bonding was with the Romans! Gladiators would make him unstoppable; more defense, attack and move with the addition of bonding would make this guy way over the top.

As is people are going to avoid being next to him when they can, and putting to many OMs on him may hurt you more than you realize. I say just stall the X on him once he is out there, and switch it up at an odd time to show your opponent he is still a threat.

Or you can stall him back by your support figures; sitting him next to the KMA could be a pain if your opponent spent some figures to get there. "Ha ha, now that you're adjacent to my KMA you are forced to attack this 7 life tank."

Re: Tandros Kreel Pre-Release Discussion Thread

Amazing unit! Truly amazing! He's still a Hero so squads will always be better for the same points barring a major rule revision in this MS, but I still like him a lot.

Re: Tandros Kreel Pre-Release Discussion Thread

I like him. For 120 points, still not sure I would take him over KA, but he clearly has his uses. I'll have to try him out a few times to see exactly how he plays.

Re: Tandros Kreel Pre-Release Discussion Thread

Yeah he's my favorite hero from the new set. Really decent. Maybe he'll make an all discipline army a possibility in my eyes. Nevertheless he looks like a ton of fun to try out.
