Re: The Book of Tomb Skeletons

Should I put up an Imposing Synergies as well (for the Clerics and Wizards)? I have seen it once or twice in the original books, but I'm not sure what C3V's stand on it is.

Re: The Book of Tomb Skeletons

These guys remind me of the old Jason and the Argonauts movie with the claymation skeletons.

I am really interested to see how this version of skeletons does as a massive swarm army. I really liked the first set of skeletons and will be hard pressed to move my affection to these ones.

Re: The Book of Tomb Skeletons

I just answered my own question. I played my son in a game of Heroscape tonight where I played 6 squads of Tomb Skeletons with a few heroes.

What I found is that they work really good. They function especially well with a highly mobile hero. The hero I used was one of my customs that gains temoporary flight, but some official figures that I could see doing really well would be:

-any dragon
-A Theracus + hero passenger
-Wyrmlings
-Air Elementals
-Sujoah
-Wyvern
-vampirs

or figures with mobility abiliies like disengage, phantom walk, telaportation, etc. That are easily manuevered adjacent to the opponents figures and the Tomb Skeletons kicking off Flanking.

A lot more fun in mass than I thought they would be.

Of those possibilities, I'd venture to guess that Theracus + either Tandros Kreel or Thorgrim would be the best choice. With three hexes, they can engage more. With Thorgrim, Theracus sticks around longer. With Tandros, engaged figures can only attack him. In both cases, an order marker to get one attack from Theracus or the hero isn't usually the best choice, so the heroes are just there to take damage and give the skeletons the chance to flank.

The thing I often look at when designing customs is, "Why can this unit do this and another can't?" For me, it doesn't make a lot of sense that the Tomb Skeletons are the only unit in the game that can flank. But that's just my opinion.

The Goblin Cutters have a very similar power (it simply requires two other goblins to be engaged).

I'm mostly just unsure what to think of these guys. They seem balanced, but what's their purpose? Any insights C3V gents?

The Tomb Skellies aren't a unit I would use competitively, but when playtesting or playing with friends I would use them. The appeal for me is how inexpensive they are. If you are playing a 200 point game, you could have 15 Tomb Skeletons! Warden 816 helps them out, and Flanking comes into play more often than you'd think, again because you can afford so many skeletons.

I'm not sure about their true "purpose", and I have only played 3 games with them, but they have been fun and that's enough for me.

Re: The Book of Tomb Skeletons

I can't speak to their purpose since they were nearly finalized by the time I got involved in stuff, but they seem to be to be sort of a filler squad. Or maybe their purpose is more thematic than functional: the game now has a cheap skeleton squad option, something it previously lacked.

Yeah, I played against them when playing awesomeunleashed online and they seem fun, just kinda boring, IMO. They are dirt cheap, but that's really the only allure I could find to them.

Oh well, I'm sure someone will come up with something. ^_^

Edit: Just saw caps' post:

I suppose the filler theory could be correct. I had guessed something along those lines, but guessing does little.

Re: The Book of Tomb Skeletons

Yeah, they're not as interesting from an army building perspective, but as bad guys for a scenario or a dungeon crawl they're invaluable.
