The Book of Braxas

The Book of Braxas
Raknar's Vision - Heroes of Lindesfarme

Spoiler Alert!

If you cannot see the Army Card graphic, check Hasbro's Unit Page for stats and special powers, plus "character biography" and other non-game unit info.

Character Bio: On Icaria dragons are no rare thing; yet even in a world filled with these majestic and mighty beasts, Braxas is a legend.From her powerful maw flows a river of searing acid, eating its way through even the most finely-crafted armament. Her elongated body flies and twists through the air like a beautiful, dancing black ribbon of death. Even her dragon-kin both fear her and hate her. Few have survived an encounter with Braxas. The destroyed are fortunate, for the survivors wake from sleep screaming, night after night, pursued by phantom yellow eyes. (Hasbro)

FLYING
When counting spaces for Braxas's movement, ignore elevations. Braxas may fly over water without stopping, pass over figures without becoming engaged, and fly over obstacles such as ruins. When Braxas starts to fly, if she is engaged she will take any leaving engagement attacks.

Braxas sure can be a devestating squad killer with that breath, though. Kinda like Grimnak with range on his Chomp (sure, you've gotta roll high enough for it, so it's not an auto kill like Chomp, but it's not too hard a roll to get)

It sure isn't hard to get. Statistically you're likely to lose 1-2 squad figures per attack which is why you have to keep your expensive and unique squads well away from her.
Her low def means she falls pretty quickly but her 8 life means you need either a few turns or a hard hitting squad/ hero. I usually use Aubriens or Jotun against my daughter's "Braxas of Evil." With a lucky frenzy or two they can make short work of her.

Braxas is like a Grimnak on crack. What better way to dispose of some unwanted Krav Maga Agents than a little death-puke? A quick note on the Deathwalkers, as I am a huge fan of them, DW7K is actually a medium sized character, so it should still work, unless it's like the acid skin, which wouldn't hurt any of the Soulborgs.

Braxas is real nasty for plugging away at squads, but with relatively low defense, a big, nasty hitter like Jotun, Drake, or Carr can have a field day with her. I'd really want to draft her with Raelin for support, but, then, you see Raelin always drafted with just about every group. Hell, I draft Raelin with DW9K(Much, much less chances for whiffs there). Still, I think Braxas has a great weakness in her lack of range attacks and low defense dice. It seems to me that if you got a few lucky rolls with the Krav Maga, or even just Syvarris, you'd pretty much have her beat. She's very powerful, but not powerful enough for me to recruit her.

Ask PoF how hard it was for him to roll a 7 for Seduma! It was like for every 3 or 4 rolls, he would roll higher than 7. So just because the number is under 10, it doesn't mean it's very easy to roll higher than it. But still, Braxas is probably the number 1 squad killer out there since you can kill all or 75% of a squad from range! With flying and 6 move, she'll be able to get you easily, and with a high attack it's almost garunteed to kill or wound a figure. I don't own her, nor have I played against her, so everything I'm saying is a guess.
Also, if she's on height and takes up all of the heighted area(if you know what I mean) she can really hold her ground.

Heres a couple units that have some great synergy with Braxus. I usually look to draft these whenever I have Braxus in my army.

Deathreavers - These guys are great at tying up ranged units. Move them out early and lock up the dangerous range units and Braxus is free to use her breath on dangerous range squads. Even if they're able to kill the reavers she should have height and most of her life by then.

Finisher Units - Marro Warriors in particular. Braxus is good at tearing apart units and crippling them. While the Marro Warriors aren't great early they shouldn't have to much of a problem finishing off broken squads.

One unit not yet mentioned as great synergy for Braxas is Kelda. With such a high health Kelda is really worth it. Add in another cheap hero with decent health and good hits (Sgt. Drake anyone) and pile on the cheap squads.

You could still have up to 2 or 3 cheap squads to go with that 500 pt army.

A good hero killer (Drake). A good squad killer (Braxas). A healer to keep them both up. And lots of cannon fodder.

Kelda is your bait.

DUND is underestimated and under-rated.

Braxas just had maybe the best game for me she ever has, all thanks to bad drafting. It was a two-on-two with me picking first, and both enemies went hero-heavy in an attempt to counter Braxas. Trouble was, they invested in Medium heroes (yum!) who get a lot of their value from loads of defense and defense boosts (acid breath doesn't care!). End result... Braxas melted a healthy Iron Man and healthy Captain America, plus two Microcorp Agents, plus put some wounds on new Raelin with normal attacks. Well over 500 points! And she survived until the end of the game, which she almost never does for me.

News flash: that anti-hero roll of 17+ x3 is nothing to joke about! Yes, she is known primarily as a squad-killer, but when you counter-draft Braxas, you're looking for size, not heroes! And especially not a Cap and Raelin configuration that tries to build up a million defense dice!

Just had to get that off my chest. I feel better now.

Re: The Book of Braxas

When my girlfriend drafts Braxas(most of the time), I counter draft her with Morsbane. My strategy in defeating Braxas is to engage a large heavy hitter next to her and try to negate her Poisonous Acid Breath and Flying abilities with Morsbane.

Draft Deathstalkers for engaging Braxas. These cannot be attacked with poisonous acid breath because they are large. Plus, wounding Braxas should be easy with 3 attacks of 3 against her defense of 3. Deathstalkers have a move of 7, so engaging Braxas should not be a problem.

Re: The Book of Braxas

Sorry for but here are 2 questions about Poison Acid Breath-
1) Does the range glyph work with it? I don't think so but, just to make sure...
2) Does the Glyph of Lodin work with Poison Acid Breath? I think so, but if the range glyph doesn't work, then why would Lodin? Again, sorry for and sorry if this has been asked before.


Without dark, there is no light.
Without bad HScape figs, there are no good ones.
Dund is important, therefore

Re: The Book of Braxas

I've made a mental note for myself about using Braxas. If you are trying to playtest a map, don't use her.

In a game last night I saw her burn away about 7 microcorp, all of the krav, and a pretty decent bit of damage on Nilfheim. She really can pack a punch for her points when used well. In an army with three squads of deathreavers she becomes really potent. It's also great how she ignores things like stealth armor and high defense. She sure is pricy, but I love to use her!
