We meanwhile played three times a game Mortans vs Troglodytes (Centurion vs Duskborn Chieftain) in the ReckenEcke
The last two games we had the following effect: All other Troglodyte Units where eliminated, but the duskborn chieftain managed to win the game alone. He was equipped with the mask of dusk and the dragonscale armor.
In particular the last game evolved to the following situation: On the Mortans´ side a unit of four legionnaires, the mortifex, the Scorpio, and the princeptor. Maybe about half of them with full life points, rest of them moderately hurt, one of the unit members almost down. The Centurion was gone already. On the opposite side the Duskborn Chieftain alone (!).
The mask of dusk costs 6 points only and has the following two effects, because the Chieftain is immune against distance weapons and magic attacs:
1. the Scorpio changes into a piece of nothing that even hinders the two attached unit members from moving fast, because as a unit they have to stay close to the (slow) equipment. Once they finally get into MEL distance they can not really effectively influence the outcome the game, because the have only limited melee abilities.
2. The spells of the mortifex do not have an effect so he can be used as a character that has similar abilities as a standard member of the legionairs unit, only.
With the dragonscale armor the chieftain has his standard defense of 13 which is pretty ok and an extraordinary ARM value of 11. So even if an attack gets through, there is only a moderate chance that there is some minor damage (and he is able to stand a lot of damage). And at the end of his activation the Duskborn Chieftain even recovers D3 lifepoints.
Bottom Line: With his four attacs (6 action tokens, that makes 2 double attacks with the Shadecrushers) the chieftain had no problems to win the game.
I like it, because I am on the Troglodytes side
, but it seems a little unbalanced.
Main question is: Are we doing something wrong here?
