    The power is real similar to the Tomb Skeletons just adding attack instead of reducing defense.

    Is the intent to allow the dice to stack? If an opponent's figure is engaged with 5 friendly figures, his attack would become 8 (9 with height, 10 with height/glyph)? If so, maybe there should be a maximum addition of 3 dice or something.

    Yes, he does have Minotaur bonding, but I could also see this guy getting play in a non-Minotaur army as a cheap filler. I really like the 30 point threshold, I'm just thinking the huge attack potential might be too much for 30 points.

    Great start!

    Yes, the intent is to stack. Maybe put the clause to a max of 3 add die.

    Name suggestion: Apeo

    Apis is the Egyptian bull god . . . I just gave it a Greek/Minoan twist.

    Class: Young - Since Tecer and the Minotaurs are beasts, what do you think about Apeo being the same class? This way he bonds with arrow gruts like Tecer.

    Personality: Wild/Reckless - if he is Reckless, then he would bond with the Pirates. I think I prefer wild at this point. Although he doesn't seem overly wild in his play. He throws down his heavy attack when he has strength of friendly figures engaged with the defender. So, in thinking about how he would be used on the battlefield, Apeo seems a little Cunning/Cautious/Wary/Discreet/Alert/Shrewd to me. He kind of lurks behind and then finds an opportunity to safely engage and deliver a blow.

    ENHANCED BATTLE AXE
    If Apeo starts his turn unengaged you may add 1 to his attack value for every friendly figure engaged to the defending figure up to a maximum of +3.

    What do you think about he power name and flipping a couple of clauses in the text?

    Beast works for me as his class.
    Personality, Cunning is good.

    The wording is awesome and the power name works. OP updated.

    Just a couple of suggestions . . .

    I propose that Apeo be considered Final.

    New card with the comma inserted, which is the same as the other cards with limitations use. Good catch.
