This week's duo occupies opposite ends of the power spectrum.
Mat Smith showed you Bob Salvatore's anti-hero way back in August. The wait until you can hold this wonderful mini in your hands will be worth it when you get it on the gaming table. We've had some of the most entertaining games of our three-year playtest experience in battles involving Artemis Entreri, and that goes for both his standard version and his Epic stats.
I'm not going to talk about his Epic stats. I'm going to mention just a few of the things that make the standard version fun to play.
As to the Epic version, let's just say Artemis Entreri isn't scared of no stinking Balors. Prudently wary, certainly. But not afraid.
Q. Whatcha gonna do for an encore?
Q. Does this common mini have anything particularly interesting about it?
Q. Um, I mean, something that the skirmish players are going to want to know?
Q. But it has only 5 hp. Doesn't that sort of make the Fearless thing … I don't know … less of a big deal?
Next week -- something stinky!
