    Brainstorming - Repainted Drow wizard

    Post  Lord Kai on Thu Jun 27, 2013 4:30 pm

    This is a repainted Everan Sunshadow. I am going to work with Orgsbane on Heroscapers to have two more painted for Derek and Damon.

    I will post some sample stats if you folks are up for Repaints in our discussions.

    Very cool!

    I am having Orgsbane repaint one for each of you : )

    And we are considering doing another "Custom Contest" on Heroscapers.com - since the Marro contest was pretty successful (24 entries).

    Darn it, after 2 hours of research on drow and names and powers I never followed through enough to get it all together by today. Next time it will be first priority.

    Wow, some great entries!

    For me, it came down to these two:

    # 4. Vorgryn

    # 7. Revane

    I do have to say that the only one that made me want to play them right away was #4 Vorgyn. I hope he wins and we adopt him in our playing circle after some play testing!

    I voted! Ouch! I'm the first vote for him Mad 

    I wish I had participated, but I didn't seem to find the time, creativity is a stretch for me, and I certainly don't know anything about Drow. Maybe next time.

    BUMP

    I know this figure is growing long in the tooth concerning our customs. Let's still keep him in mind.

    Just doing some bookkeeping for our site.

    Here are my initial thoughts for the Eravan repaint. Yes, I’m stealing ideas from the contest Kai ran. But I like my additions too.

    BELLOCHAR – in Drow speak, “Bel” means fire, flame, burn and “lochar” means spider, messenger.

    Figure: Heroscape, Master Set 3: Battle for the Underdark, Erevan Sunshadow (repaint)

    General: Utgar
    Planet: Toril

    Species: Drow
    Unique Hero
    Class: Arachnomancer
    Personality: Tricky
    Medium 5

    Life: 4
    Move: 6
    Range: 1
    Attack: 3
    Defense: 3
    80 points

    LOLTH’S ARACHNOMANCY
    Instead of attacking, you may roll the 20-sided die. If you roll a 1-9, nothing happens. If you roll a 10-15, you may place one previously destroyed Arachnid common figures adjacent to Bellochar. If you roll 16 or higher, you may place two previously destroyed Arachnid common figures adjacent to Bellochar.

    SHADOW CAST (for the fire in Bellochar’s hands)
    All Drow and Arachnid figures that are within 3 clear site spaces of Bellochar are considered to be on a shadow space when rolling for Hide in Darkness or defense. Bellochar is not affected by Shadow Cast.

    I'm willing to start a thread specifically for our development if that is OK with everyone.

    Bellochar seems like a great filler in either a Drow 'Hide in Darkness' army or with Estivara and the Fyorlag Spiders.  

    Deepwyrm Drow Armies:  Shadowcast will be incredibly powerful in Drow Squad armies, but you'll need to use OM's to keep Bellochar up close to his kinsmen.  Would you consider adding 'Shadow Assassins' to the power so Mika Connour could get in on the action?

    Army of Assassins:
    Deepwyrm Drow x3 ... 210
    Bellochar ... 290
    Mike Connour ... 400
    Pelloth ... 500


    Fyorlag Spiders:  With Estivara and the Spiders, Bellochar is providing a nice +1 Defense Aura for the Spiders and is able to Re-Birth instead of attacking.  Spiders aren't very expensive though, at about 13 points each, so maybe a lower number for bringing the first one back (like 6 - 14 for 1 Spider, 15 - 19 for 2 Spiders, 20 for 3 Spiders).

    Army of Arachnids:
    Fyorlag Spiders x3 ... 120
    Bellochar ... 200
    Estivara ... 280
    Wyvern x2 ... 480
    Marcu ... 500


    Other ideas:

    LOLTH’S ARACHNOMANCY
    Instead of attacking, you may roll the 20-sided die. Add 3 to your roll for each Arachnomancer you control in addition to Bellochar.  If you roll a 1-9, nothing happens. If you roll a 10-15, you may place one previously destroyed Arachnid common figures adjacent to Bellochar. If you roll 16 or higher, you may place two previously destroyed Arachnid common figures adjacent to Bellochar.

    SHADOW CAST (for the fire in Bellochar’s hands)
    All Drow, Shadow Assassin, and Arachnid figures that are within 3 clear site spaces of Bellochar are considered to be on a shadow space when rolling for Hide in Darkness or defense. Bellochar is not affected by Shadow Cast.

    RANGE 5
    How about a Range 5 attack for Bellochar, to match with Pelloth. This way there is at least a threat of him taking a ranged attack/spell against the enemy if no Spiders are destroyed yet.
