The base can be modified so that it does not stand so tall. It comes pre-supported and not supported really reducing the work to 3D print. It has been posted in @TheIsamu proxy thread.

Additionally, I created the Glyph of Xenithrax Vines card and label below. I am currently creating the Book of Thread for it.

I also am too, a little bit. When I first saw him, I was hoping for a mega 400-500 point unit, meant to be your entire army.

Re: The Book of Xenithrax the Soulweaver

I might try running her where Vine glyphs removed from the map go back on her card, so they keep replenishing as they're used and destroyed.

Spoiler Alert!

Character Bio: Xenithrax the Soulweaver is an unfathomably enormous avatar of the raw mystical energies that created our universe, made manifest in the form of a primal apex predator not seen on Arboreas’ for countless epochs. A legend even among the magi of the Dryan Lifeborne Order, Xenithrax personifies the undeniable power of life and death, and being drawn to Valhalla where the mystical wellsprings are located, has amplified that power almost being reason. Now Xenithrax dominates the war-torn plains as an indomitable harbinger of Volarak’s absolute determination, bringing low those that would dare raise blades and barrels against the Valkyrie’s forces. Wherever Xentithrax feet tread, the ground heaves and breaks, dropping her enemies to the ground in horror are she sweeps across battlefields with utter contempt for those that would oppose Volarak. There is little escape from the Soulweaver’s reach, those that try to flee find fast moving tails darting under the crust the earth, and thrusting up through the surface and impaling enemies from below.


The Glyph of Xenithrax Vines:
Spoiler Alert!


Quote:
SUMMON VINES
Xenithrax starts the game with three Xenithrax Vines Glyphs on this Army Card. Once per round, after moving and before attacking, Xenithrax may choose an empty space within 4 spaces of Xenithrax and place a Xenithrax Vines Glyph from this Army Card onto that space.

ERUPTING EARTH SPECIAL ATTACK
Range 5 + Special. Attack 4 - Special.
The first target of Erupting Earth Special Attack must be within a Range of 5. After attacking with Erupting Earth Special Attack, you may choose a figure that was adjacent to the defending figure at the beginning of that attack and attack that chosen figure, rolling one fewer attack die. You may continue attacking with Erupting Earth Special Attack in this manner, rolling one fewer attack die than the previous, up to a total of four attacks. A figure cannot be attacked more than once in a turn with Erupting Earth Special Attack.

I am working on the Book of The Glyph of Xenithrax Vines and before I post it I am looking for opinions on a rule clarification for it. The glyph definition states that when a large figure moves on to the glyph to immediately remove it from the battlefield and that figure can continue its movement. So does that mean it still has to roll one die for a potential wound or are large figures exempt from any affects of the glyph?

First: No, it's Huge figures that get to wreck the Glyph. Large figures are fully susceptible to its effects.


Second: The Glyph is removed immediately when the Huge figure steps on it, before you continue your movement. By the time you're moving, you're not "moving off of it", because it doesn't exist anymore; so no, it can't hurt you in that case.

@Anitar good catch and I did mean Huge not Large. My thought was exactly how you are describing it that a Huge figure basically crushes it, but I wanted to make sure that is how others interpreted it. Thanks for your response that clears up how Iím and going to write the bio.

Anitar is correct here. Also, once you finish your Book, I'll incorporate a link to it into this thread's OP.

Re: The Book of Xenithrax the Soulweaver

Really sucks that the campaign didn't back... This would've been awesome.

You're gonna carry that weight... all 250 pounds of it.
