    should it be, or could it be
    after revealing an order marker on a Unique guard squad, or Unique Deathwalker, or Unique Warden...

    Looks awesome!.

    That would probably read easier, but I think the text was copied from a HS card . . . I just can't find which one. Let's have Kai make the call on the change in wording.

    What is written on the card is grammatically correct (at least in MS Word).

    I have the Squad (comma) or to separate Unique Squad from the two types of Unique Heroes that can be bonded with.


    Reversal:
    Okay, after reading the card the "follows Utgar" part needs the comma otherwise it could be interpreted that the Unique Squad doesn't have to follow Utgar.


    Update:

    BODYGUARD DETAIL
    After revealing an order marker on a unique Guard squad, unique Deathwalker hero, or unique Warden hero you control that follows Utgar, after taking a turn with that unit, you may take a turn with two Alpha-Prime Enforcers you control.

    Here is an updated card with the new language. If you don't see changes, try refreshing your browser.

    I vote that the Enforcer be approved!

    Double checking the Power Axe wording: should be its instead of it's

    An Alpha Prime Enforcer cannot have its Range modified.



    It's is a contraction for it is or it has.

    Its is a possessive pronoun meaning, more or less, of it or belonging to it.

    Do we want to drop the range clause with the FAQ on Deathwalker and the range of 4 qualification?  I do. We can make mention of this fact in the rulings and clarifications in the book of this figure.

    I'm starting to redo Wave 2 cards.

    I think this is a much better rewording of the Alpha Prime's power . . . following the lines of Kato and Kantano. It is much easier to follow and I don't know why we didn't think of this before:

    BODYGUARD DETAIL
    You may take a turn with two Alpha Prime Enforcers that you control after revealing an Order Marker and taking a turn with one of the following that you control:

    • 1 Unique Guard Squad that follows Utgar, or


    • 1 Unique Deathwalker Hero that follows Utgar, or


    • 1 Unique Warden Hero you control that follows Utgar.


    there won't be the extra space on the card in-between the list on the cards.

    Also, due to the errata on Deathwalker, the last clause on  the original Power-axe can be deleted to read as the following (per agreement of last July):

    POWER-AXE
    When an Alpha Prime Enforcer attacks a figure that has a Special Attack, add 1 attack die.

    OK. This is the first major re-haul of a card's power that I've done. Please take a look to see if it works to your satisfaction:

    Character Bio:
    As the wars on Alpha Prime raged on, the Soulborgs continued to evolve from their simple Robota origins into more efficient machines of war. Seeking more ways to upgrade and improve, the Soulborgs expanded their own science but also forced captive Mariedians to develop other advances. One leap forward in technology was the creation of the massive living computers that were collections of different ‘souls.’ One such living computer, dubbed MSS-I-47 (for Master Series System 47 - Planet Isadora), was the most successful and feared.

    As its primary task, MSS-I-47 was to manage and control captive Mariedians. It created a process for imprisoning, interrogating, and when appropriate, re-educating and re-programming them into useful tools for the new rulers of Alpha Prime.

    Over hundreds of years of torture and cruelty, MSS-I-47 made several advances with its experiments. The Soulborg developed machines to hack into the minds of its captives, carving through their recent memories as well as deepest secrets. The subjects rarely survived the surgically invasive interrogations and so MSS-I-47 explored ways to “digitize” its victims and bring them into both a physical and virtual prison. Once in the cybernetic prison, the subject’s mind could be explored, the necessary information extracted, and then if they somehow survived, their body would be ejected from the system for re-programming or future interrogation if needed.

    MSS-I-47 continued to grow in power and technomantic knowledge. In continuing experiments, it “re-programmed” the Mariedians from human bodied slaves into robotic soldiers. From those experiments rose a new class of Soulborg labeled the Alpha Prime Enforcers. Metal and cyber-machinery wrapped in synthetic flesh to appear humanoid, the Enforcers descended on Mariedian targets revealed during interrogation. The Enforcers wore the face of their former host, and then once their task was complete they were issued a silver mask to join the faceless ranks of MSS-I-47’s hunters and guardians.

    After nearly a thousand year reign of terror, the civil war between the Soulborgs of Alpha Prime erupted on Isadora. The Omnicrons launched a surprise attack, arming Mariedians as a distraction from their primary mission – to steal the technology of MSS-I-47. With its Enforcers barely holding off the Omnicrons, the massive soulborg knew it was only a matter of time before it would fall to the enemy. It had grown to incredible size, nearly that of a building, but its only hope to escape was to inhabit the body of one of its Enforcers. Only a fraction of its power would remain but its main programming would survive. With the assistance of its guardians, MSS-I-47 transferred its Robota soul into a female Enforcer body, and after destroying her back-up data, slipped away from the battle.

    MSS-I-47 found life outside of her massive form surprisingly invigorating. Her guardians now called her Mistress, as she was both their dominator and commander. She retreated to other hidden bases to continue to improve her now mobile form. She developed a portable digitizing weapon to encase her enemies in a cybernetic prison and if they survived they could be transferred to storage devices or prison cells later. The confines of the portable cyber-prison are not as strong, so there was a chance that a willful captive will escape, but Mistress Isadora’s Enforcers are often nearby to recover the escapee.

    During the various conflicts between the Soulborgs of Alpha Prime, Mistress Isadora worked with several allies including Warden 816. The two fought side by side and the Mistress shared her guardsmen with the Warden’s forces. In exchange Warden 816 provided schematics and designs elements for his Evisceraxe so that the Enforcers’ weapons could be upgraded to their signature Power Axes.

    She also learned how to transfer her programming (“soul”) into other Enforcers, though this required an elaborate procedure. It meant that if her current host was heavily damaged, that her guardians to revive her in a new body if necessary.

    When seeking new soldiers and leaders for the Battle of All Time, Utgar could not resist pulling the Mistress and her Enforcers to Valhalla. She was more than willing to face off against the Omnicrons and Mariedians again, and she had many new species to dominate and experiment on once again.


    - Rulings and Clarifications -

    Deathwalker 9000 adds 2 to the range of Soulborg Guards adjacent to him. It does this mean the Alpha-Prime Enforcers have a range of 3 when they are adjacent to DW9000?

    No Range Enhancement for the Enforcer. DW9000 was changed in the Errata of the last version of the official HS FAQ as follows:
    RANGE ENHANCEMENT: Any Soulborg Guards you control with a Range number of 4 or more that are adjacent to Deathwalker 9000 add 2 spaces to their Range.
