Wow, Anubian retiring the Minions. Dallas gamedays will never be the same...

Podwest used to be "The Minion Guy" for the longest time... When he moved out of the area, Anubian was able to sneak in and snatch the crown without anyone calling foul. I wonder who will be next? Tmac's Dad? I'm looking in your direction! You could use a strong go-to build!

Haven't been the same since you left...although we had decent attendance and new faces at NHSD this year.

Dr. Livingston took advantage of the restricted list and melee-friendly maps with Warriors of Ashra and Raelin (the all-girl army) for the win. Terrible.

Where are you now?

I'm actually back in Texas for a while; I was back in time for the last little tournament you guys held, but had too much going on to make it. Hopefully things will settle down and I can make it out for one soon.

Re: The Book of Minions of Utgar

You should use Charos to crush those minions. With his massive defense of 5, he staands just as good a chance as the Izumi to counterstrike the minions. With 5 attack, he stands a pretty good chance of killing the minions normally. Plus, with 9 life, it doesn't really matter if he doesn't get the first hit against them because he has not only counterstrike, but 9 life on top of that.

Re: The Book of Minions of Utgar

Yeah, but Minions get 3 attacks for every one of Charos' and they average 2 skulls to his 1.7 shields so counterstrike isn't going to be much of a factor. Their 6 defense will yield 2 shields on average to his 2.5 Skulls, though. But also factor in that most maps make it hard for double-spaced figs to gain Height advantage and those numbers become even more favorable to Minions...

Re: The Book of Minions of Utgar

Just clarifying, and I apologize if this has been asked before (I didn't really understand the "rule clarifications") but if my Minion rolls 2 skulls, and an enemy rolls 5 shields, then does that double to 4v5 and is a block? Or is it 2v5 and a block, but with +2 wounds?

The first one. You double the skulls, then count shields to see if it's a block or not (so if you rolled 3 skulls it would turn into a 6v5 and would be 1 wound).

Just a misconception about whether skulls rolled count for auto-skulls or auto-wounds (I had the same misconception when I first read the Omnicron Snipers' card ). So, basically, whether two skulls rolled would become four skulls, or two skulls plus two immediate wounds.
