Altered drugged.
« on: October 17, 2006, 07:12:15 PM »

After playing the stygian I have learned that the stygies win by speed. Get there fast and hit first since stygians can;t take a hit in return. Now drugged are an option for the squad but they can;t run so only slow the squad down. Thus eleminating the speed that stygians need. So I propose making the drugged an option only for the stygian units that can't run, also make them a combat capable unit. For instance my Preistess a unit that can;t run may take 2-4 drugged as an add on. The new drugged unit would be under her controll and would screen her as she supports her army and defends her when she is attacked. I Know that this is similar to the dragon clan slaves, but I see it as a better use for the drugged. I don;t take them except to add to the priestess and never for a squad. I screen my army with starved and reapers these units are far better than drugged in the screening duty. The individuals that could take a drugged gaurd would be the priestess, gaurdian, and the embalmed . stats

Just an idea I was toying with.

Drugs are bad.
VeezCon products:  Not as good as if they had been actually produced by a real figure company, but better than using your shoe to proxy with...sort of!

After we've played a game where you run the grunts with some drugged as shields, we'll ponder this some more.  I don't remember you trying this yet, but your idea for letting some other individuals have some drugged shields isn't a bad one.
