Re: Nine's Custom Expansions (01-01-2017)

The new figure is a good choice .. makes for easier acquisition for fellow 'Scapers.

I agree with IshMEL - Undead as species and shorter name. You can always add the "Soul Harvester" to the Bio but keep the official name shorter.

I'd play-test him to see how that 2-Life, 2-Defense holds up. With Blood Frenzy, he's almost a late-game figure {you want your target to be wounded}.

Army Idea:


Thanatos ... 60
Death Knights x4 ... 300
Skull Demon x2 ... 430
Marro Warriors ... 480
Dumetef Guard ... 505


The Marro Warriors are just great, and on the right map with some good water-cloning, you'll have a chance to bring Thanatos back.

And with flying, I can see Thanatos being a bit of an assassin to take out key heroes once they are wounded.

Re: Nine's Custom Expansions (01-01-2017)

I was thinking of making him undead, but i was thinking of making more wraith units in the future like another hero and a common squad. Would "Wraith" work as a class perhaps?

I havent looked into the benefits of making him undead yet but i know the setbacks already which are perfectly acceptable.

I guess with the name i was in the mindset of "Raelin the Kyrie Warrior" and i was trying not to stay in the greek mythology mindset seemingly making him godlike. Thoughts?

Shorten the name to Thanatos (or refer to him as Soul Reaper Thanatos throughout.)

I highly recommend the X-2 Card Creator (see the software forum) for creating the text part. It will make it easier to read and more official looking.

Keep up the good work!
made some changes, thanks for the tips!

While its still untested i only hope he's not too weak and is actually a beneficial choice in the right team. Now if only i had four sets of death knights lol.

Might i inquire what a skull demon is?

Thanatos looks cool. Fly around, picking fights and getting killed. Then, wait for Rejected by Death to trigger just to do it again in the mid-end game. A fair way to use 60 points, but ranged armies will make him a non-threat.

Also, Skull Demon.

Hmm, that's what I get for not exploring the forums more...

Thanks! Glad to hear your thoughts, wish I had some friends to play with rn so I could test him for reals.

No worries, the forums can be daunting (there's over 2 millions posts after all).

You may be able to rustle up some folks to play with you using there online heroscape tools. This thread indexes the way its currently played as well as many other helpful things in it.

Very nice first go. About your first post, I lived the idea of a second evil general when they added Valkrill. So much so that I had Sudema leave Vydar for Valkrill for some of my customs.

makes sense since vydar wasn't exactly saving kittens from trees in the beginning. I feel like the fluff of Heroscape could use a revamp anyways.

Re: Nine's Custom Expansions (01-01-2017)

Don't forget to test him with armies that get more than 2 turns per Order Marker. The first (and only?) one that comes to mind is Kurrock and the Elementals. Probably won't be a game breaker but deserves to be tested.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

I can imagine Kurrok would be the victor in that case, but won't know until we try!
