The Book of Black Wyrmling

The Book of Black Wyrmling

Warriors of Eberron – Collection D2 – Golem and Wyrmlings

Spoiler Alert!

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

Character Bio (adapted from home page): The Black Wyrmling, like all aptly colored Wyrmlings, is both versatile and exciting! It may be wild, but Braxas and Othkurik keep it in line.

If you roll an 11-15, the chosen figure receives 1 wound. If you roll a 16 or higher, the chosen figure receives 2 wounds.

WYRMLING BONDING
After revealing an order marker on a Black Wyrmling Army Card, before taking that Black Wyrmling's turn, you may take a turn with one other Wyrmling you control.

FLYING
When counting spaces for a Black Wyrmling's movement, ignore elevations. A Black Wyrmling may fly over water without stopping, pass over figures without becoming engaged, and fly over obstacles such as ruins. If a Black Wyrmling is engaged when it starts to fly, it will take any leaving engagement attacks.

Re: The Book of Black Wyrmling

Black wyrmlings sort of make the white wyrmlings irrelevant. While the whites can use their Special attack on larger figures, most will easily be able to defend against it without an issue. Blacks are tough-squad killers and hero wounders. Two of them acting in concert can dump a good number of wound markers on a medium hero before they can take them out. Also like mama their breath isn't a special attack, which is nice. Two used wisely are a cheap amusing fix to Minions, SoJ, or Nakitas

Re: The Book of Black Wyrmling

Keep in mind, though, that the Black Wyrmlings can only attack one figure with their mini acid breath, while the white wyrmlings can get two with ther ice shards. White Wyrmlings also have an additional defence die, which can be the difference between life and death for common heroes.

I'm not saying the white is better, though. I'd choose the black over it unless I was going up against an Ashigaru army(Just off the top of my head; there are other armies I might use them against as well). But the black does not necassarily make the white irrelevant.

Re: The Book of Black Wyrmling

In the absence of all other modifiers and powers, the white's special does more average damage against a multi-life hero with defense of 4 or less or a single life figure with a defense of 3 or less.

I find that hard to believe seeing that Whites have to attack different figures with their Ice Shards.

White is still better, though.

You're right, I forgot about the different figures limitation. Still, if you can get 2 targets in range, white wyrmlings will often do more average damage then blacks. .

Yes but the opponent can't roll defense dice against the Black, I think it evens out. I like the Black better my self

Re: The Book of Black Wyrmling

I played a game with three Black Wyrmlings, and my opponents were calling for their blood by the end of the game. It may have been my rolling, but a few of these guys are easily as frustrating to play against as Braxas is, in my opinion.

Re: The Book of Black Wyrmling

I also just played a game with 3 of these guys on one team and they were pretty awesome!! Took KA down in just 2 turns. With 6 movement and 4 range they can get in position to start spitting acid rather quickly. While they won't live forever, it doesn't take much to get their points back when causing 1-3 wounds per ordermarker.

I agree, it's also the reason I lean towards Braxas over other dragons in tournament settings. In this day and age Raelin is so common that being able to totally ignore her is huge. The whites look the least appealing to me, believe it or not. I like being able to ignore the defense dice completely. Especially with more and more units coming out with 4 or more defense and auto shield abilities. I havent been able to play any of the wyrmlings yet, so I cant say for sure which I like to actually play more, but on paper the order is Black/Red tie, then Blue, then White. I guess I'll see for sure when I actually get to play

Re: The Book of Black Wyrmling

All the Wyrmlings have their own uses to me and I find that the Black Wyrmling is the best Hero Killer.

I played a game in which 4 Black Wyrmlings took out KA, Raelin, and 2 Omnicron Snipers. They seem best at taking out high defense dice / low life heroes. It is sometimes very useful to be able to ignore height and Raelin when attacking.
