Re: Future Cavalry

Centaurs would be awesome. I've often wonder why they haven't made them yet. The only centaur-like creature we have is Brunak. I don't think we need to have cavalry for every general. If so, lets not have horses for everyone. Utgar has the groks, and jandar has horses. I'd say give:
Ullar- Centaurs
Einar- Tiger riders, man that pic was so cool.
Vydar- some kind of cyberbeast would be cool
Aquillia- some sort of bug

72 tournaments. 173 - 142 - 1 overall record. 6 tournament wins.

My goal, play every official 'scape unit in a tournament at least once. 149 down, 55 to go!

Re: Future Cavalry

I agree with the War Elephant.............But its just not calvary to me, its more like what a tank is, more of heavy support. You get my point?
I have also noticed two things similar between the Groks and Templar
1.) they both have 3 attack and 3 defense (base)
2.) they both have an ability to give them +2 attack (Groks - Warlord adjacent; Templar - more than 4 spaces away before move)
So I was thinking like the Kyrie there might be something similar between them if future figures came out......So those two things are my best guess....
But I broke my 1st guess at similarity in the Einar and Vydar calvary since they could possibly have range.

I would like to see:
Already have Templar
Already have Groks
Native American Horsemen. (Plains Native Americans on horseback) have 2 attack and 3 defense. Turn and Fire - if the defending figure attacked the Native American Horseman the last turn then add 2 attack die. the problem there is a range problem........
Id like to see elves on some strange creature. they can get their +2 attack by the figure being a hero.
Agent Bikers. (agents that have 3 range on motorcycles from the future) 2 attack and 3 defense. possibly for their special they can have some weaker form of Trample Stomp or a range special where if the targeted figure was passed by them on their move then they would add the +2 dice. (thus they would have disengagement)
Raptorians. sort like Tyrandids from Warhammer (just not with guns and more nature looking/space creatures) They would have an attack and defense of 3 and Scent of Blood - if a figure being attacked already has a wound then the Raptorians receive and additional two dice.

any ideas or criticism?

Re: Future Cavalry

here's my idea for Einar's Calvary: Dragon Riders! Make some people riding on mini Zelrigs!
Dragon Riders (3X)
L 1
M 7
R 1
A 4
D 4
P 125
Flying
Zelrig Bonding


Without dark, there is no light.
Without bad HScape figs, there are no good ones.
Dund is important, therefore

Re: Future Cavalry

Centaurs are not Cavalry unless they are riding something else or something is riding them.

Yeah, I thought of that a while ago. I started with "let's give swog a reason for 8 move" and went from there.
Staying with that Grut theme, how 'bout Orcs on ankylosaurs with cudgels?

Re: Future Cavalry

I like the idea of Vydar motorcycle riders. Sounds like a nice conversion idea.

Personally, I'm uncomfortable with the motorcycles. They are just a little too 'everyday,' and I feel like they would take me out of the game. I would appreciate the idea more if they had more to their theme.

As backers for Carr, they might make a good Vampire-killing squad, a la Blade. 7M, 1R, 3A, 4D with Silence the Dead: The Blade-squad adds 2 to their attack when attacking an Undead figure.

Very funny. . I meant a full squad.
Why don't they make a four member, double hex squad I wonder?

Because they don't fit in the current packaging.
