Re: Astro's Custom Units [Update 5/16/20: Draft Horses]

A little confused by the huge price tag per squad. Is the idea to only have 1 squad in each army? Also...I'm just not sure horses on their own should have that much attack/defense...unless these are supposed to be like the massive war horses of the medieval ages where they were trained to attack?

The huge price tag is mostly to discourage them in tournament-style games. I'm concerned about being able to freely reposition up to 3 figures with any powers for a single Order Marker, even if it's kind of prohibitively expensive to take that many units in one army. It has a lot of combo potential with pretty much any kind of unit, so I'd rather that they turn out to be a C unit competitively (or even F, though I don't think they're that bad) so long as they're fun in casual scenarios. They're really intended more for 700 or 1000 point games.

Horses are pretty tough creatures. Their kicks are extremely strong and dangerous, so I feel like anything less than 3 attack is kind of unthematic regardless of the time period. I still considered 2 attack in earlier iterations of the squad that were cheaper, but since I want these guys to be very expensive, I figured that 3 attack gives them a better chance at filling out their points.

Re: Astro's Custom Units [Update 5/31/20: WWII Tank Hero]

Could you post a picture of the scaling next to a human figure? I know we discussed that in the discord but I'm curious.

Sure thing! I don't own the miniature myself (I'm looking for a more readily available option), but @IAmBatman provided this excellent shot:



It's certainly smaller than a tank should be, but it fits well on two hexes and the scale doesn't bother me too terribly.

Re: Astro's Custom Units [Update 5/31/20: WWII Tank Hero]

While I'd love a tank/mechanized hero of some kind of Jandar, and you've done a great job representing it mechanically, the scale would bother me. It's not as bad as it could be, though.

Re: Astro's Custom Units [Update 5/31/20: WWII Tank Hero]

That's totally fair. If it helps, I've done a bit more research and found out that the scale isn't as unreasonable as I had first thought. Several light tanks in WWII were just a bit over 7 feet tall... Now, as to whether this mini is a light tank or something else, I have no idea.

Here's some quick pictures of some smaller tanks from Wikipedia if you're interested:
Spoiler Alert!

It falls within the range where I'm willing to ignore it for blowing stuff up with a tank the gameplay, but I get that your mileage might vary. I've been bothered by plenty of stuff like Tomoe Gozen being on a smaller scale than the Samurai before, which is much less noticeable.

Re: Astro's Custom Units [Update 5/31/20: WWII Tank Hero]

Tanks are cool. The small size is historically inoffensive for a light tank.

I can completely understand the price tag on the Draft Horses. Triple Carry is extremely strong, especially since you could hypothetically carry the same figure three times in a row as you move with each horse individually.

Re: Astro's Custom Units [Update 5/31/20: WWII Tank Hero]

The Haunted Tank is specifically an M3 Stuart, that's part of why it's haunted in the first place. The M3 is a light tank, so the scale seems pretty decent here.
