    Lea had one play-test against Matsuko and the Roman Archers. A lone Roman Legion soldier with height had a perfect 4/4 attack on my 0/5 shields for Lea to fall off her horse in one blow. The dismounted Lea got in 2 attacks later on, but she was isolated and three ranged attacks of 3 took her down.

    Only feedback would be to give her full "frenzy" instead of the restriction that she can only roll her power after attacking an opponent's figure. Frenzy doesn't happen often but a hot die could have her taking multiple back-to-back turns. I still have the question about a bonding hero with frenzy and then the timing of bonding. The rules-lawyers might argue that if you frenzy that you don't get to take a turn with the knights - but I'm not sure on that one.

    Suggestion:
    Lea "Roan" (horse): - replace 'frenzy' with Augamo's charge ability

    CAVALRY CHARGE SPECIAL ATTACK
    Range 1. Attack 4.
    Instead of moving and attacking normally with Lea Roan, you may move Lea Roan up to 6 spaces. Lea Roan may attack up to 2 times with Cavalry Charge Special Attack at any point before, during or after this move as long as Lea Roan is on a space where she could end his movement.

    This guarantees her a 2nd attack and adds a Special Attack to the Knights. Might increase her points from 100 as this is a pretty good double-special.


    Lea "Argil" (infantry): give her Battle Frenzy like Manauvi or Frost Giant:

    BATTLE FRENZY
    After attacking with Manauvi, roll the 20-sided die. If you roll a 16 or higher, you may attack again with Manauvi.

    I like your ideas and it might make Lea more entertaining to play with. The proposed Battle Frenzy is less helpful than the original Sword Frenzy, so I think I will go with your first ideal of straight frenzy. How does this look? I bumped Lea Roan's points by 10, but it may need to go higher.

    LEA ROAN

    General: Jandar
    Planet: Earth

    Species- Human
    Unique Hero
    Class: Champion
    Personality: Wild
    Large 6

    Life: 4
    Move: 8
    Range: 1
    Attack: 5
    Defense: 4
    110 Points

    FALLEN HORSE OF WAR
    When Lea Roan is destroyed, you may replace Lea Roan with Lea Argil if she is on this Army Card.

    LANCE OF VERDURE SPECIAL ATTACK
    Range 1. Attack 4.
    Instead of moving and attacking normally with Lea Roan, you may move Lea Roan up to 6 spaces. Lea Roan may attack up to 2 times with Lance of Verdure Special Attack at any point before, during or after this move as long as Lea Roan is on a space where she could end her movement.

    DISMISS THE RABBLE
    When rolling defense dice against adjacent attacking small or medium Squad figures, Lea Roan receives 1 additional defense die.

    Character Bio:
    A wild champion and her mighty war horse stampeded across the borderlands of Asia and Europe, striking fear into the foes of her mighty Scythian tribe. Dressed in the finest armament, Lea would charge and charge again with her mighty lance. On foot, Lea would strike with frenzy with her deadly long sword. Summoned by Jandar, this wild champion soon found her niche with the Knights of Weston and the Dreadgul Raiders.

    Bump. Thoughts on the previous post? I have also added in the synergies to that post.

    Totally nit-picking now .. watching out for Heroscaper Trolls ...

    Should we add "immediately" to this wording, so there isn't conflict for her not entering play if she is killed by a Zombie or the like?

    Yes, and I should probably indicate where to replace her.


    FALLEN HORSE OF WAR
    When Lea Roan is destroyed, immediately replace Lea Roan with Lea Argil if she is on this Army Card. Lea Argil must be placed on a space occupied by Lea Roan when she was destoyed.
