The Guild Ball guy didn’t just copy your power, due to be a captain and the way his melee results were set up, he tended to use your power Better than you could. When they put that same copy ability on another grunt player later, it wasn’t Nearly as good due to the lack of force multiplication from not being a captain.

More over, Task Master doesn’t copy Powers, he copies Fighting Styles. He’s essentially a normal unpowered dude, but is one of the single most skilled combat fighters that he’ll beat you down regardless. How That gets translated to the game is even harder than simply copying other characters powers.

Could be translated as a counter attack when used within a certain range, and being able to use any physical melee power they have?

The issue is universal when you take a mechanism that is balanced holistically within a faction and/or unit and then give another unit or faction access to that same mechanism. It might not break the game immediately, but it will always be a potential time bomb that will potentially interfere with future development. To extend the GB comparison, it is precisely why The Union were phased out as mercenary units for other factions.

Taskmaster may copy "fighting styles" but that is his application of his powers, not the powers themselves. Game wise, a character's attacks and superpowers are the way a character's fighting style are reproduced, so if he was going to copy a character's style, mechanically that would likely be some form of rule duplication.

Daredevil is maybe my favorite Marvel character of all time. I'm obviously going to put him in a lot of lists and hope that he gets a good affiliation.

But, that Bullseye is the best of the recent models.

Kingpin is too heavy, DD is going to lose his batons, Punisher is uninspired.

of course, I'm buying and painting them all.

DEFENDERS.

So far you have Dr Strange, Ghost Rider, Dardevil.

Power Man, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones should be next year sometime.



At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

I could be wrong, but I think Defenders was listed as Strange, Wong, Spider-Man, Hulk and Ghost Rider.

If that's true, I don't see DD and Punisher in that affiliation. That is more the mystical Defenders, not the Netflix Defenders.

Go get em Matt (the Affleck DD film is a guilty pleasure)

I thinking Taskmaster might get a hefty bonus att/def dice against anyone thats attacked him making him rather risky to try and solo

I'm assuming you means the actually alright Directors Cut? Which for me solved a lot of the issues I had with the cinematic release.

That would be a nice way to implement it, I declare this to be correct.

I also like all three, but I think Matt, being a constant candidate for my favourite super, might be one of my favourites so far. Really digging Wilson too. Bullseye was never a particular hit for me, but I think the sculpt is a good representation.

The GenCon subpage on the official website now shows the full contents of the Construction Site terrain. Quite disappointed the size and shape of the new terrain is very similar to that of the existing terrain, would have liked to have seen some more variety.

Spiderman and Ghost Rider are part of the mystical defenders? The classical lineup had Silver Surfer and Namor, although might be hard making it work in a game when the 4 members are absolute heavyweights.
