The Book of Nilfheim

The Book of Nilfheim
Raknar's Vision - "Heroes of Lindesfarme"

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: Ivory Pillar. Diamond Breath. Northern Wind. Great Protector. These are all titles given to the ferocious Nilfhiem, king of the northern
continent of Icaria. Icarians have always worshiped the dragons of their world as godlike creatures; but no dragon has ever been held in higher
honor than King Nilfhiem. This reverence is both hard-won and well-earned, as The Great Protector fights valiantly for those who cannot defend
themselves. His glory is in the patronage of the battleweary.
In Nilfheim, Jandar disovered a kindred spirit. He summoned the mighty king to Valhalla just moments before he would meet his end at the hands
of invading Nhah Scirh, a cult of Icarian dragon-slayers bent on the destruction of all dragon-kind.
(Hasbro)

_________________________________________________________________
-Rulings and Clarifications-
  • - NILFHEIM’S WING : Adjacency Ruling
    Can Nilfheim’s right wing block adjacency between the figure that is on the hex directly behind him, and a figure
    that is standing on the other side of the wing?

    No. The wing will not block adjacency. (Hasbro FAQ)

    - ICE SHARD BREATH SPECIAL ATTACK : Engagement Requirements
    Can Nilfheim use Ice Shard Breath Special Attack on figures if he is engaged?
    Since this is a SPECIAL ATTACK, Nilfheim must attack a figure that he is engaged with. If Nilfheim successfully
    destroys the engaged figure, he may target a different figure. If Nilfheim does not destroy the engaged figure,
    he can only target another engaged figure, (if possible), or must forfeit the rest of the attack. (dnutt99)

No, but the rules do. If a figure with range is engaged, it must attack that figure.

Its a special attack and is bound by the rules of attacking and engagement.

This is why I like Braxas better

The acid breath is "instead of attacking", so the engagement doesn't apply since it isn't an attack, but a "power".

Yeah, she is 25 points more, but also comes with 2 more life (attack and defense are 1 less). But that not being stuck with engagement on the acid breath vs ice shard just seems to come into play too often.

Nilfheim, fun character, but don't use him against a glad/blast army, he will get crushed. If he ever gets 3+ glads next to him he will fall that turn. Of course this could be said about any hero really against he glads/blasts. I like nilf cause he can kill heroes with his great basic attack, or kill/wound multiple characters with his ice shard. Not too shabby defense and life either. Plus he looks cool, even though he is unwieldy.

With ice dragon why dont you just kill the engaged figure first then use your next 2 attacks with range? Same goes for Kaemon's special double attack or syvarris, Q9, laglor, anyone who has multiple attacks with range? also you mentioned the izumi threat... keep in mind SPECIAL attacks always bypass counterstrike

Without a doubt, the biggest problem with Nilfheim are those wings! If you have a map with a lot of trees, glaciers, other odd shaped terrain, etc., it becomes very difficult to land him where you want to for maximum attack value.

Fourshadow struggles with that quite frequently...

I haven't used him as much recently because I've been trying out lots of bonded armies with new commons that I've purchased, but I'll always remember my early games with him. He is a very balanced figure, and can pretty much do it all. With 6 flying, 6 Life, 6 attack, and one of the best ranged special attacks in the game, he's a pretty serious threat. 4 Defense is a little low, but it by no means makes him weak.

Only real problem are those wings . However, those wings also help make his sculpt one of the coolest yet.

He is one of my favorite figures. I like the wings because you can hide figures between them like Kelda.

Or Raelin. Nilfheim with 6 Defense is nothing to be trifled with. While they try to kill her, you can get off a lot of extra Ice Shards.

The 18-5- part of this guy is a bit frustrating when army building.
