is wave 9 worth hunting?

Title pretty much says it all. One of my friends got his hands on axegrinders (2 squads) and they are alot of fun to play. All of wave 9 looks like alot of fun. Buuuuuut...... it kinda costs you an arm and a leg, almost literally. I mean, one squad of dividers for 35 dollars seems a little much. But here is my question.

For all of you gamers who recently purchased wave 9 units, did you regret the purchase? Do you use them often? Are there "must haves" in it like blade gruts and vipers from wave 1? Because I don't want to go spending 10 dollars per squad figure and then regret it or never use them...
(P.S. I only have 150 dollars to spend, so take that into consideration)

Re: is wave 9 worth hunting?

If you like the Axegrinders, see if you can find another squad or two. I wouldn't try to buy up a whole wave because you decided you like one squad in it.



Buy what you like, and what you can afford.

Re: is wave 9 worth hunting?

It is my favorite wave, but the prices are ridiculous and that is hasbro/wotc's fault for not making more in the first run. A case of wave 9 on ebay will auction out about 165 - 190.
  • Axegrinders are cool and Migol is worth having if you end up getting them. He is a beast.
  • Atlaga is an excellent addition if you have any Kyrie squads already. The Protectors are sort of meh.
  • If you have the gladiator heroes then 3 sets of Capuans are going to be nice to have.
  • The Mohicans and Brave Arrow are also sort of meh but if you like that theme they can be fun.
  • Tul-bak-ra and Kumiko are probably not worth it.
  • I would not bother with the repulsors unless you like the theme and already have some Snipers.
  • The Dividers are the bomb but they don't really shine until you have about 5 sets or more.

So get the dwarves, caps if you have the glad heroes (Spartacus & Crixus), Atlaga if you have some Kyrie (minions in particulair), dividers if you got enough cash to get enough sets.

A must read for all 'Scapers!

Re: is wave 9 worth hunting?

Unless you are planning tournament play, you can always proxy with similar figures.

He has a great point.

Wave 9 has many of my favorite squads (Axegrinders and Mohicans) and some great heroes. But it's very expensive.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Re: is wave 9 worth hunting?

You can also proxy with wood chits or chess pieces; you can buy a bunch of those along with some ink cartridges and card stock for the $150 he has to spend.

I could be wrong but if he was looking to print and proxy, I don't think he would have started this thread.

A must read for all 'Scapers!

Re: is wave 9 worth hunting?

Yeah, I have proxied before, and a long time ago, I even made some custom figures out of legos that my brother and I had alot of fun with (good times). But in general I dont like proxying units as it can get confusing and you lose the whole awesomeness aspect of the game haha.

So axegrinders and dividers are good? I will see what I can find, thanks!
