    We'll have to word-smith this one.

    I believe that each hero would be taking their own turn ... so when the Goblin Slasher's take their actions it will be the following turn.

    Something like:

    BATTLE CHARGE
    If Runk Battlesinger attacked an opponent's figure this turn, if your next turn is with a Goblin squad, add 1 to that Goblin squad's move value that turn.

    Good point about perhaps needing to adjust the wording . . . how about if he inflicts a wound, then the Goblins get to move an extra space. If the skittish Goblins see some success from their hero, then they become more daring in their move.

    How about:

    BATTLE CHARGE
    If Runk Battlesinger is engaged with a Unique Hero, all Goblins you control add 1 to their move value.

    BATTLE CHARGE definitely needs some wording help. How about something like this

    BATTLE CHARGE
    If Runk Battlesinger is engaged with an enemy figure, all Goblins you control add 1 to their move.

    Make for some speedy little Goblins.

    DARK VISION is pretty thematic for Goblins but won't come up much, so we can drop it if you guys want to.

    That's cool.  Just change enemy to opponent and you're set.

    You could borrow from the Darkclaw's Shadow Masters if you want to make the Goblin Heroes more powerful.

    I like the idea but similar to the other goblin hero I think it might get difficult for the wording, as technically the goblins are taking a different turn, but we could use a marker of sorts that you put on his card if he inflicts a wound, and at the end of the round remove it. I really like putting restrictions on the bonuses given to goblins by these heroes so I would be all in favor of working out some sort of wording/mechanics that would work for something like this.

    Maybe something like

    BATTLE CHARGE
    If Runk Battlesinger inflicts a wound (on a enemy figure), place a (green) Battle Charge marker on his card. For the duration of the round all Goblins you control move 1 additional space. At the end of the round, remove the (green?) Battle Charge marker from this card.

    Good point on the "turn" issue. Drop my idea of Runk needing to inflict a wound to get the move bonus.

    How about?

    BATTLE CHARGE
    If Runk Battlesinger is engaged with an opponent's figure, all Goblins you control add 1 to their move.

    Derek and Kai wrote:Runk is cool and the +1 move is awesome but he seems over-priced. Maybe give him 4 Attack and keep him at 60, or drop him to 50.

    I think I would lean towards 50 points here as I don't see a big wallop from these goblins as much as a swarming, wear the opponent down with numbers faction.

    I had the same opinion as Kai . . . drop him to 50 points.

    Can we change the thread title to Runk Battlesinger?

    After a few more play tests with Runk, I think he is good for now.

    I vote we move him to play testing from brainstorming.

    Any thoughts on improving the card?

    Can we include a W3 at the beginning of the thread title to make it easy to identify?

    I had fun playing with the Goblins, per our discussion and my additional input, here are my suggestions:

    Figure: D&D, Savage Encounters #17, Goblin Wolf Rider

    Planet: Eberron
    General: Utgar

    Species: Goblin
    Unique Hero
    Class: Warrior
    Personality: Inspiring
    Medium 4

    Life: 4
    Move: 7
    Range: 1
    Attack: 3
    Defense: 3
    Points: 50

    DARK VISION

    When Runk Battlesinger attacks a figure on a shadow space, add 1 to his attack.

    BATTLE CHARGE
    If Runk Battlesinger is engaged with an opponent's figure, all Goblins you control add 1 to their move.

    SCALE
    When moving up or down levels of terrain, Runk Battlesinger may add 2 to his height.

    Here is an updated card with those changes . . . let us know what you think.
