Re: [Pod 2] Sorin of the Eternal Thirst

Gruesome Inspiration is a really cool power, but I agree that when played with bonding squads it isn't worth the OM. What kind of markers come in the boxes that could be used instead?

Re: [Pod 2] Sorin of the Eternal Thirst

It's not meant to be used with bonding squads. It is meant to be used with the other cards in the AotV "box"

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Let's bounce idea's around, guys!
This is a solid design.

Vydar Vampire is definitely rule of cool. Color scheme supports it

I get that the sculpt looks like a vampire, but he's one of the few historical opportunities that we have in this box, so I wanted to bring up my idea of turning him into Vlad the Impaler again. This was the rough draft that I posted in the Pre-Brainstorming Thread about a year ago, for reference:

Quote:
Vlad III

Human
Unique Hero
Count
Cruel

4 Life
5 Move
1 Range
3 Attack
4 Defense
70-90 Points

Paralyzing Stare 13
After moving and before attacking, choose any small or medium figure adjacent to Vlad III. Roll the 20-sided die. If you roll a 13 or higher, the defending figure cannot roll defense dice if attacked by Vlad III this turn.

Gore
If Vlad III inflicts one or more wounds on a Unique Hero with a normal attack, you must place 1 additional wound marker on the defending figure's Army Card.
The idea is that Gore symbolizes the torture and cruelty that Vlad was known for without fiddling with an aura of fear or other complex mechanics, and Paralyzing Stare is just downright nasty to heroes with that combo. Lower stats allow for a lower point total, too, since the majority of our units are hovering around 100 points right now.

Anyway, I just wanted to bring up the possibility of a take on Vlad again in case the idea was buried by the passage of time. Given that Vlad III inspired the tale of Dracula, I think that the pale-skinned Sorin looks like a great opportunity for a loose take on the character.

Feel free to pick anything out of that draft if it sticks. I look forward to seeing what y'all come up with in any case.
That sounds like a cool figure for sure, but Sorin doesn't look like Vlad.

Vlad needs a funny hat and a 'stache.

Superhuman Assault: After moving, when Vladmir Dracula makes an attack, he may continue to use the rest of his movement, if any, after the attack resolves. (Vladmir Dracula must legally be able to end his movement.) Or something like that...that would jack up the price though.

Vampire isn't a supported creature type. Warlord is good.

His stance reminds me of Izumi Samurai.

Dund Stare + Counter Attack ...
Counter Attack + Life Drain (60pts)

I agree with this being a melee figure.
The sword is a major cue.

Re: [Pod 2] Sorin of the Eternal Thirst

If we did end up going with the Vampire angle, this was an idea I had come up with a little while ago. I honestly don't really know what kind of stat line would work best with these abilities, but I think it could make for a fun assassin type unit.

Quote:
Sorin
6? Life / 6 Move / 5? Attack / 3? Defense

LIFE DRAIN

STEALTH FLYING

BLOOD LINK
Whenever Sorin receives one or more wounds from a normal or special attack, you may roll the d20. If you roll a 12 or higher, you may deal 1 wound to a hero figure within 4 clear sight spaces.

Re: [Pod 2] Sorin of the Eternal Thirst

I very much do not want a vampire angle. We can make the necromancer figure an Esenwein vamp. This one has real potential to be a historical figure.

Re: [Pod 2] Sorin of the Eternal Thirst

I'm not on this pod, but as a pod leader I'll state that I strongly prefer the Vlad angle over a vampire angle here.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Re: [Pod 2] Sorin of the Eternal Thirst

While I'd prefer a historical design, I wouldn't be automatically opposed to a strong vampire design. The sculpt could certainly work either way, but for the sake of diversity I agree that a historical angle would be ideal as long as we can come up with a design that gets enough traction behind it.
