This is the key, I think. The unit is more focused and true to its niche as a defender if Tether only works on opponents. Dienekes is probably going to be a drafting figure that you pick for certain situations rather than put in a tournament army, and I think that's a good thing. In the right scenarios, I already think that he'll be quite strong.

I also wouldn't be surprised if the friendly movements increased the price. Putting him on a hill with some ranged squads could be potent and potentially unfun to go against.

PTI, but I think that limiting Tether to opposing figures would be a very good change. I think that Dienekes is already going to be very strong in the right situation, and this helps us focus on his main niche rather than worry about him potentially also being usable for helping to pod ranged figures together on height or something.

I also think that that's the more intuitive use of the power based on the theme the card is presenting, which is worth noting. Obviously that doesn't have to stop us from baking in some other uses for a unit, but I think that the narrower focus suits the defender role really well, and the free movement for friendlies has the ability to drive up the price past what it would normally be.

Edit: I somehow missed that I had already posted about this over two weeks ago. Sorry about that.

Agreed, if he pulled up fellow figures he’d be more of a combat leader/general.
