The Book of Boreos

The Book of Boreos

C3V Wave 21 - Curse of Stormtorn Peak - Heroes of the Moonlight Vale


Basic Card:
Spoiler Alert!


The printer-friendly .pdf version of this card can be found HERE.

The figure used for this unit is a D&D figure from the Elemental Evil set. Its model name is #029 Air Elemental. An unpainted version of this miniature is also available in the Dungeons & Dragons: Temple of Elemental Evil board game.

The figure fits on a Deathwalker 9000 or Large D&D style base.

Figure picture and where to buy:


Character Bio: Boreos is a blustery force for Jandar. He's a positioning nightmare on the battlefield, stopping opponents in their tracks and attacking them before they can get adjacent. Beware as he flies overhead, too. His gale-force winds pick up allies and enemies alike.

SPECIAL POWERS
  • VORTEX PULL
    While Boreos is flying during his turn, you may choose one non-flying small or medium figure that it passed over this turn. At the end of Boreos' move, the player who controls the chosen figure must place that figure, if possible, on an empty space adjacent to Boreos. If the chosen figure is engaged when it is moved by Vortex pull, it will not take any leaving engagement attacks.
  • SWIRLING VORTEX
    When an opponent's small or medium figure moves onto a space within 2 clear sight spaces of Boreos, that figure must end its move there. Figures can never move through any figure affected by Swirling Vortex. Figures under overhangs can never be moved by Vortex Pull.
  • STEALTH FLYING
    When counting spaces for Boreos's movement, ignore elevations. Boreos may fly over water without stopping, pass over figures without becoming engaged, and fly over obstacles such as ruins. When an Boreos starts to fly, if it is engaged it will not take any leaving engagement attacks.

Rulings and Clarifications-
  • SWIRLING VORTEX: & Flying/Leaping Figures:
    Q. Can a flying or leaping figure land next to Boreos, unaffected by the Boreos's SWIRLING VORTEX?
    A. Yes. Flying figures may also pass over figures affected by SWIRLING VORTEX, since they do not have to move through them. The same is true for "Leaping" and "Grapple" powers that the power text still has "move" but also has "can pass over figures" such as Shaolin Monks' STEALTH LEAP and Sgt. Drake Alexander's GRAPPLE ARM
  • SWIRLING VORTEX: & TELEPORT
    Q. Can Tul-Bak-Ra land next to Boreos using TELEPORT, unaffected by the Boreos's SWIRLING VORTEX?
    A. Yes. AND, so can any figure making a move which is actually the "placement" of a figure. Erevan Sunshadow's FEY STEP comes to mind, as do the Water Elemental's WATER TUNNEL, the Marro Drudge's SWAMP WATER TUNNEL, and the Earth Elemental's UNDERGROUND MOVEMENT. I may be leaving some out, but if the ability says "place the figure," then it gets through the SWIRLING VORTEX. (Thanks to killercactus for the post that listed all those for me).
  • Shootin' the Breeze : Fliers standing in the SWIRLING VORTEX:
    Q. Is a flying figure within 2 clear sight spaces of Boreos considered affected by SWIRLING VORTEX, even though their flying move is not inhibited by S.V.?
    A. Yes, meaning no figure may move through a flying figure standing within 2 clear sight spaces of Boreos. That figure would still need to stop, and it cannot stop on the occupied space.
  • SWIRLING VORTEX = Park Your Carr
    Q. The text of the GHOST WALK (see: Agent Carr's Army Card) and PHANTOM WALK (see: Isamu's Army Card) Special Abilities says: "May move through all figures." Does this mean a figure with one of these abilities can move through a figure affected by SWIRLING VORTEX?
    A. No. The text of SWIRLING VORTEX creates an exception to the preeminence of the GHOST WALK and PHANTOM WALK Special Abilities. Like any other figure, a figure with one of these abilities would still be required to stop once it is within 2 spaces of Boreos. If the space is occupied and it cannot stop, it cannot move through that space.

-Combinations and Synergies-

Synergy Benefits Received
  • DEATH KNIGHTS OF VALKRILL: UNHOLY BONDING : As a large hero with Relentless personality, Boreos may benefit from the Death Knights of Valkrill's Unholy Bonding activation synergy.
  • TALINGUL: MASTER OF GREAT CONSTRUCTS: As a Large Construct Hero, Boreos may benefit from Talingul's Master of Great Constructs by taking a turn along with one other Large/Huge Construct Hero instead of Talingul.
  • KHOSUMET THE DARKLORD : RELENTLESS ASSAULT: As a figure with the relentless personality, Boreos may roll 1 extra die from Khosumet the Darklord's Relentless Assault enhancement bonus.

Synergy Benefits Offered
  • Knights of Blackgaard: Relentlessness Army Attack Bonus - Being a Relentless personality, Boreos may be in an army that helps the Knights of Blackguard receive one additional attack die.

Synergy Imposed
  • None

Re: The Book of Boreos

This guy can be used to help the Templar Cavalry. If you use him correctly, you could stop your enemy's figures from engaging them with Boreos and then charge them with the Cavalry.

Re: The Book of Boreos

Welcome to the site, @GreatPlainsKnight ! Always glad to see new folks enjoying our customs.

A note about the OP: Although the FAQ is correct that Stealth Leaping Shaolin Monks are not affected by Swirling Vortex, it is incorrect as to why. It seems to imply that Stealth Leap is an all-at-once movement, not a space-by-space movement. That's incorrect, of course. Stealth Leap has a move of 3. It's just flying with the number of spaces nerfed.

The reason Stealth Leaping monks can leap through the Vortex is that they "pass over" spaces, as noted in their power text, rather than "moving onto" them. They avoid the Vortex for the same reason flying figures can.

Re: The Book of Boreos

Now here's an obscure ruling that's very relevant to Talingul builds that include Boreos and Augamo: Because Ramming is a "place" movement rather than a space-by-space movement, Swirling Vortex can't do anything to stop it.



So, if you have Boreos and Augamo, don't accidentally let your opponent sneak through the Vortex by being rammed!

Great post superfrog!

Hereís another good tip to remember then... use Boreos second in all situations! Itís more important to have maximum positioning power with whoever is beating enemies up than to have it with Boreos. Plus, Boreos has Stealth Flying and can easily float away from everything other than Major X17.

Re: The Book of Boreos

Have my Boreos on the way now. Anyone happen to know the official ruling on standard or DW9K base for him? (He seems like he'd need a DW9k)

Re: The Book of Boreos

Would a D&D Large base be OK too?

Yep. We don't generally distinguish between the two. They're both "large singles" from my perspective.

From what I see, the D&D large has the advantage of having a slightly larger
mounting face (which may aid with overhang on some figures); but, it (along with the rest of D2/D3 bases) comes with the huge disadvantage of clashing with the vast majority of the rest of Heroscape. I've managed to fit every figure that goes on a large base onto a DW9K base, and will eventually even rebase the D2/D3 figs!
