Re: The Book of Van Nessing

I really don't like this guys cost is 105. Such an odd point cost with no reason here. To mean it means that Van Nessing, Cyprien and Sonya = 300 points even which is an odd synergy.

Re: The Book of Van Nessing

Sorry, tcglkn, but C3V figures are not priced to assuage the OCD of people that hate leaving 5 points on the table.

One point I'd like to make about this guy is that he's a decent figure even outside of his obvious use as a counterdraft to the undead. If you put just one numbered OM on him each round, plus the "X", you get a double turn from him each time he activates. That could mean grabbing a key glyph at the beginning of the game, or firing off a pair of ranged special attacks, or several other nice tricks.

Re: The Book of Van Nessing

I love that the Werewolf Lord can take advantage of him right at the start of the game, whether on his side or his opponents!

Re: The Book of Van Nessing

This guy makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Just drenched in theme/potential/synergy. I absolutely love this figure. I really fell in love when I realized he was a hybrid and that he filled in that potential with the Werewolf Lord.

Ugh, this guy is incredible! Great job, C3V. Outstanding.

Re: The Book of Van Nessing

I can't see him being played in a a normal tournament setting, as he is better as a counter in draft settings. Maybe in a heroes only or treasure quest tourney where Cypren shows up a lot, he would do good.

Yeah, if I want a double ranged special attack for less than 120 points, I'll just take... uh...

I don't deny that he's better in a counterdraft situation, but he's not bad in a double blind environment.

Re: The Book of Van Nessing

I could see some crazy metagame where everyone plays Cyprien with Omegacron and Repulsors. Then Van Nessing would be very relevant, as usually I'd imagine Gladiatrons/a Soulborg core would be the go to counterdraft for Cyprien. Against the PK he'll get off a 6 die turn, but this isn't as powerful against squads that would have died from a 4 die attack anyway.

The problem with only having 1 OM on Van Nessing to get the double turn is that Van Nessing is going to be sitting there dormant on the front lines at times while your other 2 OM's get into position. But all of this talk is just concerned about the uber tier, so it doesn't really matter.

The first thing I'm going to do is try out the Werewolf Lord combo, as this seems like it's going be an absolute blast. 2x Werewolf Lord with Van Nessing would be great in an all hero format. Not as efficient as possible, but those silver bolts are going to see some action.
