The Book of Death Knights of Valkrill

The Book of Death Knights of Valkrill
Moltenclaw's Invasion - Collection D3 (13) - "Valkrill's Legion"

If you cannot see the Army Card graphic, check The Heroscapers Gallery for stats and special powers, plus
"character biography" and other non-game unit info.
Character Bio: Death Knights are warriors who choose to come back and fight on, even after death. A death knight carries its soul in its weapon. This weapon has the power to become ghostly and pierce armor as if it was not there.

(Adapted from the Guru's front-page preview)

_________________________________________________________________
-Rulings and Clarifications-

Q. "Death Knight" = "Knight"?
. . . Please?
A. No. "Death Knights" do NOT benefit from "Knight" synergies. (Bad Scaper--You know better than that).

Q. Cloak of Sassy Indifference?
According to the Death Knights' card, their cloaks are not part of their hitzones, meaning they can't really be shot in the back. Is this correct?
A. No. Cloaks are always target-able so figures don't disappear when they turn their backs.

Re: The Book of the Death Knights of Valkrill

As always, comments are helpful. If you notice any glaring inaccuracies, please let me know and I will fix them. If I've left out any good clarifications, please let me know and I will add them. If I've typed anything incorrectly and accidentally spelled a dirty word, just keep it to yourself- it's funnier that way.

Thanks,
~Spite

Re: The Book of the Death Knights of Valkrill

They look like they could be pretty good against low defense squads.

Re: The Book of the Death Knights of Valkrill

I don't think synergy imposed is necessary. It's still a case of "do what the card says, not what it doesn't". There's also GB's quote "perhaps Valkrill is not evil but pure mindless chaos".

....I don't understand exactly what you're trying to say here. Sorry, man.

"Synergy Imposed" is just a heading I invented in order to note the connections that put the Book-character at a disadvantage. Ana Karithon's Turn Undead SA focuses on a particular type of unit. The Death Knights fit that type. It just happens that this particular "synergy" is, in fact, to the Death Knights' detriment. But I still think it's worth noting in the Book, since one of the reasons for the Synergy lists is for drafting purposes, and Ana happens to be a well-suited counterdraft to Undead units.

And I have no idea what the bolded part has to do with anything.

2200th post, though, so thanks.

My bad. I was skimming and thought it referred to protection from evil. Really sorry about that. Congrats on 2200 though.

Ah! Okay, that makes sense. Thought I was missing something. Wouldn't be the first time.

Oh yeah. How bout that... Thanks, Killer.

I'll add it, because that's always been the case in order to avoid the "If I don't look at you, you can't shoot me" scenario.

But do we actually have confirmation of this?

Anyway, it's in.

Yes, it's in the most recent FAQ (I was going to copy-and-paste theGuru's exact ruling, but I'm having problems with downoads for some reason).

Re: The Book of the Death Knights of Valkrill

Honestly; if "swamp water is water, but water is not swamp water" why is it not "Death Knights are knights, but knights are not Death Knights"? I'm just looking for an official answer.

Re: The Book of the Death Knights of Valkrill

The official answer is printed right on the card. The Knights of Weston (for example) have the label "Knights." The Death Knights of Valkrill have the designation "Death Knights." They are not the same.
