Uthuk brought to par

Recommended Posts

Gorgemaw and Viper Legion were expected. Luckily the Viper Legion didn't bring with them Blight as some people were guessing (faction identity still intact). The fatties. . . well . . What can we say . . 

Welcome. 

As a Ulthuk player, i'm pleased with the future.

I am so going to screw with somebody by putting the Cacaphony Reaver / Aggresive Shrieker / Warsprinter / Serrated Spines on my archers and performing a speed 7 charge. I’m making a few assumptions on that one though. 

 

Also, Rage Spine kind of works with that new Artifact. 

 

EDIT: For 40 points I can run 2 tray obscene with Ravos Champion and have a buddy cop unit on the field. It’ll star in the new movie Om Nom Nom!

So what will the release schedule look like you think?

We have next wave being

Kethra - Daranti Warriors -Scouts - Wraiths

Do you think the following wave is just massive?

3 Uthuk - 2 Latari - 1 Daqan - 1 Waiqar

Fearmonger's Whip
[Melee attack] Gain Lethal x, where x is equal to the number of panic tokens on the defender.
5 points

Viper Trapmaster
Viper Legion Archers only.
Before deployment, choose 1 terrain, and place 1 bane of your choice on it.
After the command phase, you may discard this card to remove that bane and cause 1 enemy at range 1-2 of that terrain to receive that bane.
1 point

Wow, Uthuk control game is a go!

So for timing, if the viper legion rolls three surges, they can spend two to add the bane to the target then spend the last surge to add lethal 1, correct?

 

Really nice to see uthick catch up, even if I don't relish the thought of having to face them all. :D

There is so much to like here, but no dials ... sure would have been nice to see that to get a better sense how all of these units might meld with others. 

Sure been a great spring/early summer for Runewars!

So it looks like all factions has plenty of choices for list building: 3 heroes, 1 basic infantry, 1 ranged infantry, 1 basic cavalry, 1 basic siege and 1 specialised unit. I still want MOAR of stuff but now it will be easier for ffg, cause the can announce one unit for each faction that gives 4 units in a wave. Also we already had big waves when basic daqan and waiqar units were released (8 units i believe) so the next wave after darnati wraights.. is very possible to be all in one.

We might see the heroes delayed a month or something.

It just dawned on me that Th'Uk Tar is cavalry so he can run with Fleshrippers in his upgrade form. Brilliant!

The true Beastmaster! Love it! At first I was like, "Dude, he's a just a person-thing. How can he be cavalry?" Then I remembered his "hooked legs" and it all came together. A beautifully crafted hero for the Uthuk Y'llan!

I can almost hear the anguished cries of @Budgernaut as yet another non-Scorpion-Lady hero is announced... but not too much because this guy is awesome!

I can’t speak for other factions, but Uthuk should be looking at finally having true variety to build with. At my count:

Gorgemaw: 13 upgrade cards (3 unique, 2 Champion, 1 Artifact, 7 others) all Uthuk only

Viper Legion: 5 upgrades (Uthuk Champion, training, and Equipment and generic training and equipment)

Obscenes: 8 upgrades. 2 unique, 3 Siege, 1 Uthuk only something, and a generic music and training. 

 

A lot of options.

 So you're seeing it as

Following Wave:
Viper Legion - Obscenes - Ventala

Followed by the first 1-1-1-1:

All 4 heroes?

Yeah, maybe. That brings parity asap without giving a faction 3 kits at once to break their wallet...

Th'Uk Tar's deployment ability and skill together are really, really thematic.

 

Dude is going to be able to make sure Uthuk firepower is always pointed in the right direction.

 

Also the Viper Legion have a slot for Cacophony Reaver. That should be fun.
