The Book of Shieldsmiths of Granite Keep

The Book of Shieldsmiths of Granite Keep

  • The first figure used for this unit is from the Underdark set from the D&D Miniatures line. The name of the figure used is #05 Gold Dwarf Soldier.

Character Bio: Time and time again, the Axegrinders of Burning Forge have taught the enemies of the Allied forces that underestimating a small enemy can be a fatal mistake. The dwarves of Feylund have become respected and feared across Valhalla for their resilience and determination. But among the society of dwarves back on Feylund, the Axegrinders are considered reckless and foolhardy when compared to their brethren, the Shieldsmiths of Granite Keep.
With Indomitable, the Shieldsmiths can adapt to any situation; they can charge ranged enemies, or shifting their strength into powerful attacks to deliver deadly blows. And with their Steadfast ability, not even the mighty Jotun can throw them aside.


Spoiler Alert!


Quote:
Indomitable
If a Shieldsmith of Granite Keep begins his turn unengaged, add 2 to his Move value this turn. If he begins his turn engaged, add 2 to his Attack value this turn.

Steadfast
Shieldsmiths of Granite Keep cannot be moved by any special power on any opponent's Army Card.

Climb X2
When moving up or down levels of terrain, Shieldsmiths of Granite Keep may double their height.

For bonding, these guys can be Gunners for Mok. With that said:

220 Mok
280 Axegrinders
600 Shieldsmith x4
600pts/18hexes

Load up with Axegrinders and protect Mok with the Shieldsmith.

I think you meant Shieldsmiths of Granite Keep, not Sentinels of Jandar.

Re: The Book of Shieldsmiths of Granite Keep

Shieldsmiths were played in seven games over Online Heroscape Season 16, winning four. Here were the matchups/formats (won):

Escape:
Shieldsmiths of Granite Keep x3, B-11 Resistance Corps, Major J15, Marcu Esenwein
Bahadur, Manauvi, Varkaanan Darkclaws, Varkaanan Swiftfangs, Eldgrim the Viking Champion

Treasure Quest:
Shieldsmiths of Granite Keep x3, Emperor Andask, Heirloom
Cyprien Esenwein, Skeletons of Annellintia x3

Heat of Battle:
Shieldsmiths of Granite Keep x3, Emperor Andask, Heirloom
Nicholas Esenwein, Bloodburst Thrall x5, Deathstrike Thrall x3, Preyblood Thrall x2, Marcu Esenwein

Shieldsmiths of Granite Keep x3, B-11 Resistance Corps, Major J15, Marcu Esenwein
Azurite Warlord, Roman Legionnaires x3, Me-Burq-Sa, Raelin the Kyrie Warrior [SotM]

Shieldsmiths of Granite Keep x3, Emperor Andask, Heirloom
Microcorp Troopers x3, Agent Skahen, Heirloom, Otonashi

Claim the Flag:
Shieldsmiths of Granite Keep x3, Emperor Andask, Heirloom
Mok, Shieldsmiths of Granite Keep x3

Shieldsmiths of Granite Keep x3, B-11 Resistance Corps, Major J15, Marcu Esenwein
Cyprien Esenwein, Skeletons of Annellintia x3

I participated in five of those games, and I think the Shieldsmiths are very solid. Their low written stats are deceiving, and that 5 defense is no joke. Even though they lost three, I would take the Shieldsmith side in every one of those matchups except the Romans one (but only in HoB; kill-'em-all I would prefer the Shieldsmiths).

Cool. I'm glad to see they are getting use and have shown themselves to be effective.

Hah, I had the Mok side. Almost won. Andask and Heirloom w/2 wounds each vs. Mok w/5 wounds, 2 Gunners, and 2 Smiths left. Andask disengaged (hit), rolled 4/4 skulls, in which Mok roll 1/4 shields. Gunner Casualties didn't trigger (7), so Mok died and dropped the glyph. I lost an OM, and Andask flew over to grab the glyph to win.

SOOOOO close....

Re: The Book of Shieldsmiths of Granite Keep

Well, after a few weeks of internal back-and-forth, I finally took the plunge and ordered enough figures to get two squads of Shieldsmiths. Even though all three are apparently out of production, I was still able to scrape them up for less than $20 USD total. We'll see how they work for me when I get ahold of them, but I can easily see these fellows becoming my favorite melee squad.
Now I just need Mok and some Gnids...

Re: The Book of Shieldsmiths of Granite Keep

Now that I've had a chance to use them a few times, I'd say these guys are easily in my top five favorite squads ever. Five defense gives them real staying power, and Indomitable just makes them fun to play and frightening to go up against. I'm in serious danger of forgetting my quest to proxy the Axegrinders and just getting a few more squads of these guys.

Re: The Book of Shieldsmiths of Granite Keep

They really are powerhouses. My one game with them they felt like mini heroes with how sturdy there were. I will probably play with them today now that I remember how good they felt.
