The Book of Asterios

The Book of Asterios

Soldiers of Valhalla


Printer-Friendly PDF
Basic Side Card:
Spoiler Alert!

The figure used for this unit is a Reapers Minis figure from the Legendary Encounters set. The name of the figure is Minotaur of the Maze.

Character Bio: Dwelling in the Maze was the Minotaur. This mystical being from Feylund relentlessly preyed upon the poor men let wandering alive in the Maze. Many time have armies of valiant troops tried to bring the beast down, only to never return, as the Minotaur is not an opponent for the puny weapons of mere mortals. Their blows never seemed to pierce the thick hide of the Minotaur whereas he furiously charged and wreack havoc in their ranks, unconcerned by their blades or pikes. It is said, however, that some day a true hero would appear, blessed by the gods. Faced with this Hero, the Minotaur will finally bleed, and after a long battle will be left dead on the ground. The Hero will emerged victorious from the Maze, the first man to ever do it, carrying at his wrists the ornaments of the beast horns. Or so said the legends.
Theseus was believed to be the Hero of the legend. He claimed to have killed the Minotaur, and leaved the Maze alive. And true be told, the Minotaur was no more in the Maze. But never did Theseus bring back the ornaments of the horns of the Minotaur...
Some whisper that the Minotaur is not dead. That he was taken by a potent God to help him in his war. That the Hero born to kill the Beast has still not showed up...

When rolling defense dice against a normal attack from small or medium Squad figures, Asterios receives 3 additional defense dice.

Re: The Book of Asterios

I just noticed one thing :

With the submission, we already gave a name to the "wave" : Guardian of the Maze. (shown on the basic side of the army card)

And the actual name is... Minotaur of the Maze. ^^

Re: The Book of Asterios

From my memory, is this the first special attack that grants an additional ability without having to attack? In this case disengage? Referencing the other movement special attacks, Kumiko already has disengage and I don't believe that Augamo gains it.

If that's true then this would be the first special attack where you might want to use your special attack without attacking? Is that within the rules? Example being wanting to disengage freely from a figure you don't want to wound (Krug, 1 lifee viking spirit, chokepoint holder...) or if you want to make a beeline for kelda or a treasure glyph in TQ.

Re: The Book of Asterios

So Aesterios is the Minotaur from the original myth, but he's from Feylund? How on Earth did this guy end up on another planet?

He's not from the myth, the maze he's in is on feylund.

Yes and no... because his Disengage is only against small and medium Squad figures. So no Krug, Vikings...

Yep, that's what I gathered too. He's based off a Greek myth, but twisted into the Heroscape universe, sort of like how Sudema is to Medusa. Who exactly is Theseus? I'm personally thinking/hoping that he's one of the Kresnik, like Van Nessing. He's definitely a character whom I think would be interesting to see come to life in fanscape.

Great looking Minotaur!

The beatings will continue until morale improves!

Re: The Book of Asterios

@DanieLoche

I guess we didn't really think to use the existing basic information you gave in the submission, because I think it was the first submission to actually include a full basic side, and so we weren't used to it at all. It's a miracle that we happened to come up with the same stats as you did!

It is within the rules to do so, at least as far as I can tell. Also notice that it is only 5 move rather than the normal move of 6, so it's not just a straight advantage.

So someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but this is the first special attack you can activate and not actually attack. Is there a precedent for such a thing?

I would argue that Kumiko/Augamo is not a good example because declining to attack for them is not functionally different than just moving. Whereas with Asterios there are cases (small/medium squad cases ) where you can activate the special attack in order to get disengage, but not do any attacking. (We'll call that usage a Mildly Perturbed Charge 'Attack')

EDIT: Btw, I should say that I love this unit. Fantastic sculpt and the application of the design intent was really well done. I look forward to games with this guy to see his impact. Bravo @French Community;.

Re: The Book of Asterios

Yes, it's the first special attack that allow to do this. ^^

But there's almost some precedent :
- Othkurik's Embush and Kozuke's Charging Assault can allow them to add 1/3 to their move without attacking. Those can be strange Embushes and Assaults, aren't they ?
- Goblin Cuttes' Scurry give them Disengage only when they use it.
- And the most important : Eltahale can use Thunder Step without attacking ! It's not a Special Attack, but same result : you can give her Disengage and a no-high-limit move of 5, without attacking, even if it's the first aim of the power.

@superfrog : I should make a scandal now... but I won't, no time for it. :P

But the bio references Theseus the GREEK hero who killed it. Was Theseus a soldier summoned to Valhalla and spread the story when he got back to Earth. Or am I just way over thinking this? Probably the latter.
