Idea for Allied Hero
Posted 28 April 2012 - 08:14 AM
That's a cool character! If he was made a DT hero, how would his skills translate into the game? I wonder if this character would be better suited for "Operation Tannhäuser" because each character can have a lot of skills and tokens in that game, compared to only one or two in DT.

Would make a very cool hero, would like to see some more heroes, sounds terrible but for Allies none really jump out at me as characters I love.

You don't like any of the existing Allied heroes? I have to admit that I rather like OZZ, Rhino, Action Jackson, Rosie and the Chef (although I don't actually have number 4 and 5) based on their abilities, looks and what little background info we have on them.

Well a lot of his tricks were about misdirection. Hidden movement would be brain achy, so advanced deployment, activating an enemy unit (wasting attacks on fake foes), or a free miss/extra cover save are ideas that could work.

Sound great and quite fits the character. His abilities could include:
The squad he joined counts as having soft cover if they aren't having cover and it counts as having hard cover when they are in soft cover.
The squad he joined may move one square before taking their normal actions.
He can activate and maybe move one enemy unit. This is quite powerful so it should either require a die roll or be restricted to once per game.
