The Book of Tandros Kreel

The Book of Tandros Kreel
Master Set III - Battle for the Underdark


If you cannot see the Army Card graphic, check Hasbro's Unit Page for stats and special powers, plus "character biography" and other non-game unit info.

CHARACTER BIO (from back of box) : Tandros's skill with the greatsword is matched only by his bravery on the battlefield. He stands against the forces of evil with great confidence, allowing no enemy to slip past his guard.

_________________________________________________________________
-Rulings and Clarifications-
Combat Challenge vs. Multiple Attacks vs. "Affected Figures":
Q.
Under what conditions does Tandros's Combat Challenge prevent a figure being attacked?:

A. Adjacency to Tandros Kreel only prevents an opponent's figure from "targetting" other figures with any Attacks. Attacks that affect other figures in addition to the target may still do so as long as Tandros is the target of the Attack. A single attack that allows choosing additional figures relative to the target to be selectively affected by the attack (e.g. Othkurik's Acid Spray SA or Gurei-Oni's Tetsubo SA) may still affect additional figures in addition to the target. Likewise, area-effect attacks which affect all figures adjacent to the target (e.g. Jotun's Wild Swing SA, or DW9K's Explosion SA), may affect figures adjacent to Tandros.

However, opponent figures with multiple Attacks (e.g. Major Q10 or Kaemon Awa), may not target any other figures with separate Attacks while Tandros is still engaged.

In the case of Pelloth's Lolth's Wrath SA, which does not specifically "target" any figure, if Tandros Kreel is adjacent to Pelloth, Tandros would need to be destroyed before any wounds could be applied to other figures.

A Great Deal of Kreel
Q. In a multi-player game, when engaged with two opponents' Tandros Kreels, how do I decide which Kreel to Attack?
A. The card states that the engaged figure may only Attack "Tandros Kreel," not "this figure" (well-put, KC). You may choose which opponent's Tandros Kreel to Attack. And good luck killing both of them. Seriously.

Tandros vs. Dinosaur
Q.
If Tandros is adjacent to an opponent's Grimnak, may Grimnak use CHOMP against a different adjacent figure?
A. Yes. Chomp is a special ability, not an attack.

Re: The Book of Tandros Kreel

This guy is the bulkiest of the bunch, which is sad with only 4 defense. 7 life is fantastic however. He seems to be the sort-of all around adventurer character. His squad killing power is pretty sweet.

Re: The Book of Tandros Kreel

Man I think 4 defense and 7 life should make this guy pretty hard to kill. He is one of my favs from the new set so far, even without bonding his taunt ability makes him very interesting. Stick this guy next to Q9 and he's in trouble(just make sure you have some squads close enough to close the gap).

Re: The Book of Tandros Kreel

Does SBN stand for Su-Bak-Na in this case? I bet you could find something a bit bulkier for 160 points... it also eats up a lot of your points (280) to have a combination like that. it could work given Tandros' protection, but we'll need testing anyway.

Funny, I haven't actually posted in the main forum for a while. Shame; I really need to get back into 'Scape.

Re: The Book of Tandros Kreel

So, in the event of Tandros being engaged with the likes of Nilfheim or Captain America, what happens with the special attack?

Does the first attack need to be directed at Tandros, with the others at any target?

The same goes for 'Double Attack'.

I want an official ruling before I put it in the Book. But it seems obvious to me that the spirit of the power is that Tandros draws all attention to himself. I would guess that multiple attacks would all need to be directed at Tandros. Since you can't do that with Nilf (or Capt? I can't remember) you would forfeit the additional attacks.

Re: The Book of Tandros Kreel

In general, with the aforementioned special attacks, what happens when they are engaged to someone without Tandros's power?

He is there because Tandros compliments his weak defense. And tandros can defend the karv.

Re: The Book of Tandros Kreel

It's the same ruling as with engagement. If Nilfheim is engaged to a figure and doesn't destroy it with the first Ice Shard Breath Special Attack, he forfeits the rest.

Re: The Book of Tandros Kreel

Using the matchup calculator, I put Tandros up against some Heroscape (mostly) melee opponents.

Against Carr, Carr wins 53% of the time.
Tandros beats Concan 71% of the time.
Tandros beats Crixus 52% of the time.
Grimnak wins 73% of the time (Grimnak's going to be good against all of the DnD master set figures).
Krug wins an amazing 97% of the time (Krug's going to be good against the DnD master set figures).
Tandros beats Migol 52% of the time.
Tandros eeks out Ne-Gok-Sa by winning 50.3% of the time.
Tandros beats Retarius 64% of the time.
Tandros beats Sir Denrick 71% of the time.
Tandros beats Warden 816 72% of the time.

Overall, he's a good melee fighter.

Re: The Book of Tandros Kreel

Is that assuming that he is using 4 attack at 1 range the whole time?
