FiddlerJones Customs - 4/6/2010

Hey all!
I'd heard about this forum a good while ago, but I'd never really checked it out. I used to make custom units a couple years ago, but I kind of fell out of it after awhile. Long story short, the bug has bitten me again, so I figured I'd post what I've made. Your feedback is appreciated.

NB: I'm aware that I should have put "Special Attack" as part of the name for the various special attacks. Apologies.

*Newest entries flanked by asterisks*

Without further ado, here's what I've got:

Abaddon, Master of Pain

Re: FiddlerJones Customs - 3/25/2010

Interesting stuff, there, bro. I only took a cursory glance but two observations: Servants of Horus probably shouldn't be Kyrie. Kyrie are native inhabitants of Valhalla. They're all winged humanoids. These guys are wingless, bird-headed humanoids, which really doesn't fit...also Osiris wasn't Lord of the Dead, Anubis was. Not a huge deal, but thought I'd point it out. I'll take a longer look some other time. Cheers!

Re: FiddlerJones Customs - 3/25/2010

Holy smokes! What an introduction!

Those are all some fantastic customs. You use lots of great figs and have come up with lots of interesting and exciting abilities.

BUT (there's always a but )

Abaddon-Strength from Pain-Does he gain an additional Attack for each wound or an additional Attack die?

Akahotep-Mummy's Curse-Does he deal the additional wound anytime he wounds a fig (including Special Attacks and Leaving Engagement Attacks) or just from Normal Attacks?

Djed-Feast of the Dead-Does he gain this benifit from all destroyed units?

Kalona-Raven's Totem-So a Ranged unit anywhere on the board can attack as though it was looking through the Raven's eyes? With no Range limit?

Madame LaRein-She is too cheap.

Osiris-Transcend Death-After he is killed his figure stays on the board as a LoS/movement blocker?

Ouroboros-Too cheap.

Raelin the Fallen-Wounding Aura-Works on any Attack, or Normal Attcks only?

Swamp Stalker-Blood Drain-Works on any Attack, or Normal Attack only?

Verdant Guardian-Tree Form-What id the space you want him to start on is a level-1 Jungle piece, so after you remove it it leaves a holein the map to the table you're playing on?

And please understand that I have even more good things that I could say about your customs than these points of clarification. Overall your work is amazing, but because you started with so many customs I would run out of superlatives, so instead I just decided to tear you down.

Re: FiddlerJones Customs - 3/25/2010

Thanks for the feedback. In response to your questions:

Abaddon: gains an additional attack die (this was one of the first ones I made so the wording is worse than some of the newer ones)

Akahotep: Mummy's Curse applies to wounds dealt to, not by, Akahotep, from any type of attack.

Djed: He does gain the benefit from all destroyed units, but only from a squad if the entire squad is gone. I should probably put a cap on that bonus though.

Kalona: Yes, any of your ranged attackers can use her LoS instead of their own. Might be too powerful, I can see.

Madame LaReine and Ouroboros Idol: I'll look into figuring out a better cost for them.

Osiris: Transcend Death is easier to understand if you're familiar with the figure itself. It's a Probability Walker from Dreamblade - one side is a pharaoh and the other a mummy. The idea is that Osiris has a double-sided card: starts with the pharaoh and then when he dies, you flip the card and he becomes the mummy.

Raelin and Swamp Stalker: Normal attacks only; should clarify that on the card.

Verdant Guardian: When I designed the ability, I didn't (and don't) actually own any tree or bush terrain, so I wasn't aware of that issue. I'd say replace it with a blank tile of grass terrain.

Thanks again for the feedback so far - can't wait to hear more.

Is it for each figure/squad that he destroys, or that gets destroyed, period? Yeah, a cap of say, +3 would probably be good...

Re: FiddlerJones Customs - 3/25/2010

Fiddler how about this for the verdant guardian rather than Tree form, do it like AE's the drop.

Tree Spirit.
Verdant Guardian does not start on the board. At the start of each round, before you place order markers, roll the 20 sided die. If you roll a 13 or higher you may place Verdant guardian on any empty space adjacent to any tree.

Re: FiddlerJones Customs - 3/25/2010

Great cards, fiddler! I am in agreement with Killometer- great figs and interesting abilities.

An easy solution for the wording for Strength from Pain would be to just copy the wording from Krug.

I love how you have utilized some of the more obscure figs from Dreamblade. I love the figs from that game for customs because the sculpts tell the story of the character. They are extremely creative. You have done a good job in transferring the sculpt's story into their abilities.

Some of the others (the Egyptian figs) look like Crocodile Games figs- would that be a right guess?

Re: FiddlerJones Customs - 3/25/2010

Thanks!

The Egyptian figures are all from either Dreamblade (Osiris, Servants of Horus, Scarab Swarm), D&D Minis (Djed), or Mage Knight (Akahotep).

Re: FiddlerJones Customs - 3/25/2010

Great intro and great customs! Welcome to the site!

I really like the paint jobs you have done to touch up your figures, especially Raelin. The only critique that see off hand is Warlord M-3's Smart Bomb. I understand that it takes 2 rounds to use that attack, but 8 / 4 attack is really strong. Maybe drop it to 6/3 and he would fit the points better.

Keep up the awesome work!+rep

Re: FiddlerJones Customs - 3/25/2010

These are great figures, though I think that General Suleiman should be worth some more, or at least make his clairvoyance involve a 20 sided die roll.

Re: FiddlerJones Customs - 3/25/2010

To clarify: Clairvoyance doesn't remove the order markers, just reveals them, so you know who they're moving when... as long as they're in range. May need rewording.
