    W3 - Vindicators of Vydar - Final *

    So I saw these on eBay and couldn't resist.  I just received them and they look awesome!!!

    I think they'd make a new custom ... either as a Unique Squad or maybe split out into Heroes.

    VINDICATORS OF VYDAR

    Figures: Remod/Repaints of Heroscape, Thora's Vengeance/Soulborgs, Blastatrons OR Heroscape, Valkrill's Gambit/ Soulborgs, Blastatrons, AND the wings of Heroscape, Malliddon's Prophecy/Heroes of Bleakwoode, Kelda the Kyrie Warrior; Heroscape, Rise of the Valkyrie Master Set, Raelin the Kyrie Warrior; Heroscape, Swarm of the Marro Master Set, Raelin the Krie Warrior.

    General: Vydar
    Planet: Valhalla

    Species: Soulborg
    Unique Squad
    Class: Guard
    Personality: Persistent
    Medium 4

    Life: 1
    Move: 4
    Range: 6
    Attack: 2
    Defense: 3
    60 Points

    CIRCUITRY SELF-REPAIR 14
    After taking a turn with the Vindicators of Vydar, roll the 20-sided die. If you roll a 14 or higher, place a previously destroyed Vindicator of Vydar adjacent to any unengaged figure you control.

    REDIRECTED PROGRAMMING
    Add 1 to the Vindicators of Vydar Attack and Move values for each previously destroyed Vindicator of Vydar on this Army Card. A Vindicator of Vydar may not attack other friendly Vindicators of Vydar.

    FLYING
    When counting spaces for Vindicators of Vydar movement, ignore elevations. Vindicators of Vydar may fly over water without stopping, pass over figures without becoming engaged, and fly over obstacles such as ruins. When a Vindicator of Vydar starts to fly, if it is engaged it will take any leaving engagement attacks.

    Bio: As the battle of all-time waged, all of the Kyrie left the camp of General Vydar in disagreement over the direction and goals of Vydar's ambitions. Deep in his underground vaults, Vydar used the skills of his technical scientists to create a squad of hybrid soulborgs and Kyrie. Vydar had his Vindicators created from the spare parts of destroyed Blastatrons and the wings of dead, or mostly dead, Kyrie. Reclaiming the skies for Vydar, the Vindicators have been programmed with the ability to repair on the battlefield and direct their programming when most beneficial to Vydar's cause.

    The Book of the Vindicators of Vydar
    NWHC WAVE ? - PACK ?

    - Rulings and Clarifications -

    What happens if you don't have any unengaged figures to place a Vindicator next to when using Circuitry Self-Repair? If you don't control an unengaged figure, then you can't repair a Vindicator. Sorry.

    - Combinations and Synergies -

    Synergy Benefits Offered

    BLASTATRONS : Homing Device
    Being a Soulborg that follows Vydar, Vindicators of Vydar may aid Blastatrons with their HOMING DEVICE attack bonus.

    Synergy Benefits Received

    LAGLOR : Vydar’s Range Enhancement Aura
    Being Vydar units with a range greater than 4, Vindicators of Vydar may benefit from Laglor’s VYDAR’S RANGE ENHANCEMENT AURA.

    WARDEN 816 : Guard Leadership
    As guards, Vindicators of Vydar may benefit from Warden 816's GUARD LEADERSHIP movement bonus.

    Synergy Imposed

    Looks like a blastatron raelin modification. A unique squad maybe?

    Or Common Squad of 2? Let's see . . . that would 2 squads of Blastatrons, check. and 8 Raelins, check . . . but then I would only have 1 Raelin.

    I vote for a unique squad of Kyrie for Vydar. We could do a squad of 2 or 3 figures.

    Blastatrons are pretty easy to acquire (I think I have 8 squads or something).

    We can probably pick up some extra RotV Raelins for some wing-clipping : P

    But yeah - I'd say Unique Squad.

    Well, let's look into getting cheap Raelins. After we price them out, perhaps we can do the wing snipping and go for common squads of these guys.

    I know someone on HS was looking to buy everyone's Raelins . . . perhaps the dude who customized the Blasties?

    Or, you were thinking of clipping Minions' wings to make Barbarians . . . maybe one figure in the squad could have minion wings (just paint them to match somewhat).

    Lot's to think about here.

    I would love having common squads of Vydar Kyrie!!!!

    Oh, and we need some Aquilla Kyrie too. Maybe attach some wings to Mohicans?

    Cool. Let's come up with some Stats & Powers and then if we are making progress we can start customizing the sculpts.

    another option would be to use the other Raelins, or Keldas, or ?s wings for some of them if they were to become commons.

    Great suggestion on Kelda for other Wing options.

    We could pull from a Raelin RotV and a Raelin SotM and Kelda to make truly unique figures. And those three are fairly inexpensive and/or easy trades on Heroscapers.com. Probably best as a Unique Squad for starters.

    Seems like time to start creating powers!!

    Yep - probably a unique squad would be best.

    I have 8 squads of blastatrons and I think at least 4 extra of Kelda and the 2 Raelins. Enough for 4 squads of 3 figurines if we went that route- although I would eventually want to get it to where I had 3 total of the heroes- 1 for each kid down the road. But I like unique squads as well. Auggies has 30 Raelin 2 at $.89, 181 at $.99 of Raelin 1, 62 Kelda at $.79, 1 squad blastatrons at $4.99.

    Cool, let's try for a Unique Squad and if they are really awesome we can start chopping up Raelins : P

    Did either of you want to make a design for these guys, or just want me to work on it?

    I initially bought them because they are cool, unique 'Scape mods.

    I'd be happy to get the ball rolling on these guys. I will start a different thread so that I can control the OP. Stay tuned!

    We need to decide if these are common squads or a unique squad before we proceed. See previous posts.

    I would say Unique Squad.

    We can chop up some Raelins and Keldas so that we can each have on set of 3. That will still be some work.

    They are cool figures and I will be happy either way, unique or common. If they could be common that would be awesome. If they are unique that is awesome. Looking forward to the design presented- if we had an endless supply or endless funds I think common would be neat was all I was Very Happy about.

    Jacob is excited about the Vydar Kyrie. He would also like to see them as common squads. He has some ideas for them and is also planning for a Kyrie hero for Vydar.

    If it would be alright, Jacob may take the lead design on these guys.

    Sweet! Yeah he can totally lead the design .. and we can find some Raelins to sacrifice. Vydar would want it that way : )

    No problem. The Vydar Guardians are open for an LD. I will start to flesh out some ideas.

    I'm not sure . . . that was what I was assuming from his post. I will have to ask him.
