    I got the figure . . . any thoughts or ideas? Shall we start throwing out suggestions to get the ball rolling?

    feel free to throw out suggestions. I have got a little bit of an idea but haven't thought about it too much.

    I believe that c3v has accepted a new Unique Hero that utilizes the Reaper Mini that we used for Tecer. Maybe we could update Tecer with this Minotaur figure?

    I didn't see anything in the C3V threads regarding the use of Tecer.

    Sorry it was SoV, and the figure is Asterios.

    He has passed SoV induction but has not been officially added to the list of SoV/C3V. Scytale stated that the army card is with the "art department" still.

    The French fellas have the figurine used for Aristeos (I think) which is about to be inducted. I wouldn't mind transferring to this figure but double attack wouldn't make sense so I say Tecer and Aristeos can share the figure, and we can come up with a new set of powers for this figure.

    I'm all for sharing the figs as well - kind of like what we did with the Sylvan and Eilen Sidhe.

    Initial thoughts, although I would definitely be open to suggestions.

    Tanerios (some scrambled version or reference to Asterion or Knossos)
    General: Utgar
    Planet: Feylund

    Species: Minotaur
    Unique Hero
    Class: Beast
    Personality: Ferocious
    Medium 6?

    Life: 4
    Move: 5
    Range: 1
    Attack: 4
    Defense: 4
    90 Points

    Bull Charge
    If Tanerios starts his turn unengaged you may use Bull Charge. To use Bull Charge move Tanerios in a straight line. For each space Tanerios moves you may add 1 to his attack to a maximum of +3.

    Labrys
    If Tanerios does not use Bull Charge, and destroys a figure, any figure adjacent to both Tanerios and the destroyed figure receives 1 wound.

    I like the powers but I think he's probably worth 110 points since he bonds and has "Cleave" with the LABRYS. His low Life score might bring him down to 100 points, as ranged squad might pick him apart.

    He's a single-spaced figure right, on a large round?

    He fits on a normal base. Yeah, he might be undercosted at this point, but still not real sure he is settled.

    I very much like the proposed powers and stats . . . yes, points will probably need to be higher. A potential attack of 7 v. hero, or attack of 4 v. squads (which could take out three of them) seems pretty potent to me.

    Bump.

    This figure keeps staring at me from the bottom of the card box of promising figures.

    He yells, "I am a Minotaur! I am ready to do Battle!"

    I can't argue with that. I think he is pretty close to play-testing.

    If powers/stats/name/etc. are good with everyone we would just need to find a starting point for cost before testing. How about 110?

    110 sounds good for starters. Let's move him to play testing.

    Tanerios has a similar Cleave power to Tandros ... so we might want to consider a Name Change : P

    We could also go with something more like Shurrak's Sweeping Sword Special Attack (though I get the bonus for charging would not apply to a Special Attack).

    The Minotaurs lack a Special Attack, so that might be something to round-out their Army.


    btw - Did we ever do any play-testing with the "BEAST Bonding" with Arrow Gruts? I think Tecer and the Minotaurs were the play-tests that I saw.
