After moving and before attacking with Atlaga, you may choose any opponent's figure within 5 clear sight spaces of Atlaga. Roll the 20-sided die. If you roll a 1-15, nothing happens. If you roll a 16 or higher, the chosen figure is destroyed. Atlaga may attempt to use this power only once per game.

FLYING
When counting spaces for Atlaga's movement, ignore elevations. Atlaga may fly over water without stopping, pass over figures without becoming engaged, and fly over obstacles such as ruins. When Atlaga starts to fly, if he is engaged he will take any leaving engagement attacks.

Jexik: Atlaga- With a movement boost to Minions and Protectors and a chance to swing the game in one roll, Atlaga is fairly versatile figure. A-

OEAO: Atlaga the Kyrie Warrior- Atlaga suffers from having to pay for what is quite possibly the worst designed special ability in the game, Bolt of the Witherwood. It should never have existed and do not count on it to win you games. Barring that, extra move on the Kyrie squads and Raelin is nice, and 4 dice at 5 range on a flying figure is solid. However, he is fragile and lacks the higher range needed to be able to stay back farther and kite more effectively. B+

Re: The Book of Atlaga the Kyrie Warrior

I think with him and marcus, the Einar imperium can be moving fast enough to actualy do something useful. Add a few romans and your set.

I'm not a schemer, I show schemers how pathetic there attempts to control things really are.

Re: The Book of Atlaga the Kyrie Warrior

In a competetive match? Nah. Kiova, Atlaga, and Marcus together cost 280, meaning you can only get one squad of Imperium before hitting the 500 mark. You can drop Kiova, but even then you'll only have two squads of Imperium with no way to garuntee they'll even live through a barrage of range attacks. It's a decent idea in a drafting environment and/or higher point games, though...
As for Atlaga himself, I'm more psyched for him then I am for the Protectors. Bolt of The Witherwood is great, and +one move to the Minions/Sentinels is outright nasty, and on top of those two, Atlaga has a ranged attack of 4 with flying. Confident fits this guy, because with powers like those his player would feel pretty confident too.

Re: The Book of Atlaga the Kyrie Warrior

I like his bolt of the witherwood, it has the potential to take on those behemoths like Braxas, but at the same time isn't over kill, I also like how he keeps the speed of his Defenders equal with his

Re: The Book of Atlaga the Kyrie Warrior

I don't just say this because of their obvious similarities, but I see Atlaga as being the new Concan - a well-costed, solid and reliable hero who will be added into the occasional non-themed army that just happens to have 90-100 points to spend. He's definitely one of the figures I'm most looking forward to in this wave.

I just hope I don't have to institute my first-ever house rule and make his wings untargetable.

Re: The Book of Atlaga the Kyrie Warrior

My first thought thought about Atlaga was "anything in one go?" Sure thats a great ability, but I probably wouldn't use it. One shot one kill... its almost ominous. I'd let him sit close behind the main fight just as a threat. They want to bring their heavy hitter in, but can't because that guy in green tights is watching!

Also it's only a 25% chance, so really its all just a mind game anyway.

No blade of grass shall go unturned

Re: The Book of Atlaga the Kyrie Warrior

I think this army could be really nasty...

Atlaga
Raelin
Sentinels x3

500 points, 11 hexes

The Sentinels will speed to the enemy and be very tough to kill. If you face Braxas, send in Atlaga and try to Witherwood her.

I think he will be more valuable to the Minions and Sentinels, who have enough survivability not have to rely on Rat screens and can afford to spend the points on him. I really like him with Sentinels because he provides that 25% hero-kill.

But if you miss your Witherwood roll, your SoJs are doomed to die from the might of Braxas.

Sure they are, but any Sentinel army is going to have a tough time against Braxas. At least Atlaga mitigates it somewhat, and also benefits the rest of the army.

I love how we make proper nouns into verbs.

Although I don't think move 5 will speed you to the enemy.

I know that I do not know.

A 25% chance to auto-destroy any unit (from 5 spaces away!) isn't exactly a "longshot" either though. Any smart player will have to respect that chance if they are fielding any units worth more than 100 points or so.

I think the key to defeating Atlaga and the Protectors as well, is to field masses (hint hint) of ranged common squads, who will not be devastated by a Bolt of the Witherwood and who can afford to lose a few figures to the Xbows of the Protectors, whereas some heroes could go down in a single turn to Combined Arbalest.

5 move with Flying will (depending on the map, of course)
