SCOUT MELEE ATTACK ENHANCEMENT
All friendly Scouts adjacent to Brave Arrow receive an additional attack die when attacking a figure adjacent to them.

CONCEALMENT 10
If Brave Arrow is targeted and receives one or more wounds from an attacking figure who is not adjacent, you must roll the 20-sided die. Count the minimum number of spaces between the attacker and Brave Arrow. Add this number to your die roll. If you roll a 10 or higher, ignore any wounds Brave Arrow just received.
_________________________________________________________________

-Rulings and Clarifications-

  • - CONCEALMENT : Determining the Bonus?
    On Concealment, if a Mohican is 5 spaces away from the attacking figure, does that mean he can add 5 to the roll?
    No. The minimum number of spaces is not the range that the figures are at. It is the number of spaces BETWEEN the 2 figures. In the example, if the Mohican is being attacked at a range of 5, the minimum number of spaces between the 2 figures is
    more than likely 4. Do not count either space the figures are on. (Hasbro FAQ v9.4 p15)
  • - CONCEALMENT : What triggers Concealment?
    What attacks and abilities qualify as targeting Brave Arrow?
    Most of the time, any time a figure is affected by an Attack or a Special Attack, they are targeted. There are a few exceptions. "Area" Attacks like DW9000's Explosion, Gurei-Oni's Tetsubo, or Zelrig's Majestic Fires only target one figure, but also affect those other figures adjacent to the target. Brave Arrow may only roll for Concealment if he is the target of a non-adjacent figure's attack. Additionally, Special Abilities that inflict wounds - like Dragon Swoop - are not Attacks, and do not trigger Concealment rolls.
  • - CONCEALMENT : Okay, what about Mimring?
    Does Mimring's Line of Fire Special Attack trigger Concealment?
    No, Mimring is the exception. Brave Arrow may not roll for Concealment against Line of Fire because it does not specifically target any figures.
  • - SCOUT MELEE ATTACK ENHANCEMENT : Friendly Figures
    What figures are considered friendly?
    Per the Master Set rules (page 9) friendly figures are your own figures and teammate’s figures. All figures you control are always considered friendly. Whenever you are allied with a teammate at the beginning of a scenario, any figures you both control are considered friendly. A temporary alliance between opponents during a battle doesn’t change anything. Remember, alliances can always change (unless stated at the beginning of a scenario), so even when you have a temporary truce with an opponent, that opponent’s figure is never considered friendly. (Hasbro FAQ)

Re: The Book of Brave Arrow

So the Native Americans have synergy with the Vipers and Spiders. Interesting. I see new armies already forming there:

Brave Arrow 50
River Tribe x2 190
Fyorlag x3 310
Sujoah 495

Brave Arrow 50
River Tribe x3 260
VW 380
Venocs x3 500

Re: The Book of Brave Arrow

I can see this guy working by himself as a clean-up unit. He has fast move, some invulnrability from range attacks, decent attack and defense, and is only 50 points. He should be able to hold his own against other clean-up units.

Re: The Book of Brave Arrow

I'm just glad to contribute, Rev!

I think that Brave Arrow and his Mohicans are going to make a great clean up crew, or a first assault. But they seem to burn bright and fast (not unlike the Vipers they synergize so well with), so they lack the stability to serve as a reliable army core.

But this is all theory at this point, so maybe I should test them out, first...

Re: The Book of Brave Arrow

Hm, never thought about them as a clean-up unit.
Mohicans x2
Brave arrow

That right there is 190 points for clean-up. I don't think that would be worth it.

Re: The Book of Brave Arrow

Clean up unit or early scout party? Who cares, their defense ability so far is unique and interesting and I think either way they will be fun to play.

Re: The Book of Brave Arrow

If he's being attacked at 6 range, Brave Arrow has an 80% to doge.
(If I did my math right that is. 10+=55%, +5 spaces= additional 25%)

That's pretty darn awesome. Fast move, nigh-invulnerable from range. Glyph grabber anyone?

I think you just answered my question: His card says "count the spaces between," which should mean "do not count the spaces on which the two figures are standing," correct?

EDIT: I just re-read your post and I don't think we agree. If BA is being attacked at 6 range, you should be adding 5 to his die-roll, the 5 spaces between the two figures. 10+5=15=only a 75% chance to dodge.

Re: The Book of Brave Arrow

I think the developers have figured out that medium non-ranged heroes need some extra survivability to be useful. Good.

Re: The Book of Brave Arrow

I read it the way you read it spite. A 10+ is actually 11 numbers though.

10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20=11 numbers. 5% per number= 55%

5 spaces between means 5 more numbers: 5,6,7,8,9, which equals 25%

55%+25%=80%

Yeah, I was thinking that too. It'd be hard for him not to earn his points back against some squad figures in the end of a game. I also like the design on tracking- it lets him move faster in those early "wait until I get you" stages.

Re: The Book of Brave Arrow

As soon as Wave 9 comes out and Wave 1 is re-released, I am going to try a Natives & Vipers army. MRT+Brave Arrow+Venocs+Mittens is something I can see becoming a tournament-worthy army. Right now, power rankings wise, I can see the Mohicans & Brave Arrow being in the B+ or A range. Also, there's a little typo in the first post; siege is spelled wrong (same in the Mohicans book).

Posts by me are rare occasions. I mostly hang around other places these days, but I come here every once in a while.
