    I couldn't resist a Dwarf riding a Bear for $3.19.

    I like the idea of another dwarf hero. Any thoughts on stats and powers?

    little and lots of thoughts here. Maul, distraction for other dwarfs to leave engagement, inspiration, protection. Lots of room to explore avenues here. Lets throw out some ideas and see what sticks.

    Helping dwarves leave engagement sounds good!

    BEOR VOLUND = Bear Eternal Fighter in dwarfish from on-line translator

    My suggestion for the name:

    BORVUND

    General: Aquilla
    Planet: Feylund

    Species: Dwarf
    Unique Hero
    Class: Fighter (like the Axegrinders)
    Personality: Resolute (like the Shieldsmiths)
    Size: Not sure - need to stack some tiles next to the figure

    Life: 6
    Move: 6
    Range: 1
    Attack: 5
    Defense: 5
    A Lot of Points

    BEAR SWIPE AND SWORD POKE SPECIAL ATTACK (dumb name, but the here is the idea)
    The Bear hits first with an attack of 5, and then you get a second attack of 3. You must attack figures that were not adjacent when starting the turn. (These attacks could be diminished with each wound marker on the card)

    TREMBLE IN FEAR (just a starter name)
    All friendly Dwarf figures that start their move within five spaces of Borvund do not take leaving engagement attacks. (The idea is that the defenders are preoccupied fearing the bear that the let those little dwarves escape from their grasp. This could be a huge power for all Dwarves - Migol, Morgrim, Axegrinders, and the C3V dwarves. The range of this power could be diminished with each wound marker on the card).

    Nothing more - keep it simple, but powerful.

    BORVUND  Like the name

    General: Aquilla  
    Planet: Feylund  

    Species: Dwarf
    Unique Hero
    Class: Fighter (like the Axegrinders)  Fighter, Maiden, or any name for a female dwarf
    Personality: Resolute (like the Shieldsmiths)  Resolute, Indimidating, wild- lots of possibilities here
    Size: Not sure - need to stack some tiles next to the figure

    Life: 6
    Move: 6
    Range: 1
    Attack: 5 (3)
    Defense: 5  With 6 life I could see defense of 4
    A Lot of Points

    BEAR SWIPE AND SWORD POKE SPECIAL ATTACK (dumb name, but the here is the idea)
    The Bear hits first with an attack of 5, and then you get a second attack of 3. You must attack figures that were not adjacent when starting the turn. (These attacks could be diminished with each wound marker on the card)

    CLAW AND SWORD SPECIAL ATTACK
    RANGE 1 ATTACK 5
    When Borvund attacks with the claw and sword special attack, she may attack one additional time with an attack of 3.


    or

    BLOOD SCENT SPECIAL ATTACK
    If Borvund inflicts a wound with her normal attack she may attack again with BLOOD SCENT SPECIAL ATTACK.  Roll 4 attack die, for each skull rolled, the defending figure rolls one less defensive die.

    this would be with her having a normal attack of 3, and is kind of a play on maul

    TREMBLE IN FEAR (just a starter name)
    All friendly Dwarf figures that start their move within five spaces of Borvund do not take leaving engagement attacks. (The idea is that the defenders are preoccupied fearing the bear that the let those little dwarves escape from their grasp. This could be a huge power for all Dwarves - Migol, Morgrim, Axegrinders, and the C3V dwarves. The range of this power could be diminished with each wound marker on the card).

    Intimidating Presence
    All friendly Dwarf figures that start their move within five spaces of Borvund do not take leaving engagement attacks.

    The Dwarf army does lack a Special Attack (unless they go Big with Mok) - so I lean towards Blood Scent Special Attack. Maybe a normal attack of 4 and then a Special Attack of 3 that reduces defense for each skull. You can follow the Quickblade's power:

    LIGHTNING SLASH SPECIAL ATTACK
    Range 1. Attack 3.
    A Varkaanan Quickblade that did not attack normally may use Lightning Slash Special Attack. Defending figures that were not adjacent to this Varkaanan Quickblade at the start of its turn subtract 1 from their defense dice for each skull rolled with Lightning Slash Special Attack.

    URSA'S MAUL SPECIAL ATTACK
    Range 1. Attack 3.
    Once per turn, if Borvund inflicts a wound with a normal attack, she may immediately attack with Ursa's Maul Special Attack. When rolling defense, the target subtracts 1 from the defense dice for each skull rolled with Ursa's Maul Special Attack.

    I am good with either special attack - Blood Scent or Claw and Sword. It seems that the difference is with who attacks first - the dwarf or the bear.

    Intimidating Presence sounds too similar to Frightening Presence from the Skull Demon, to me. Count Raymond has a similar power (Maneuver 9), but figures need to roll a nine or higher to ignore wounds. Maybe something similar to that?

    BORVUND  

    General: Aquilla  
    Planet: Feylund  

    Species: Dwarf
    Unique Hero
    Class: Fighter
    Personality: Resolute (like the Shieldsmiths)  Resolute, Indimidating, wild- lots of possibilities here
    Size: Not sure - need to stack some tiles next to the figure

    Life: 6
    Move: 6
    Range: 1
    Attack: 5 (3)
    Defense: 5  With 6 life I could see defense of 4
    A Lot of Points



    CLAW AND SWORD SPECIAL ATTACK
    RANGE 1 ATTACK 5
    If Borvund attacks a figure that was not adjacent at the start of the turn, she may use Claw and Sword Special Attack. After attacking she may attack one additional time with an attack of 3.

    SWORD AND CLAW SPECIAL ATTACK
    If Borvund attacks a figure she was adjacent to at the start of the turn, she may use Sword and Claw Special Attack. If Borvund inflicts a wound with her normal attack she may attack again with Sword and Claw Special Attack .  Roll 3 attack die, for each skull rolled, the defending figure rolls one less defensive die.

    WILD DISTRACTION
    All friendly Dwarf figures that start their move within five spaces of Borvund do not take leaving engagement attacks.

    A couple of thoughts here, needs some clean up.

    Two special attacks, depending on if the bear starts adjacent or not . . . I likey. I'll put some theory-scaping into it.

    Cool design. WILD DISTRACTION is a cool name.

    I think the two Special Attack names are too similar and that could read as confusing.

    Maybe SWORD AND CLAW is when Borvund starts the turn engaged and another name for when he moves into engagement (CHARGING BEAR?).
