I have a short amount of time today with lots of art to review, so it's a quick preview. Enjoy!
Male Tiefling Fighter
The Tiefling Fighter is a well-armored combatant wielding a stylized spear. This figure is filled with potential -- in your game, he may double for a Paladin or a Warlord. His power is phalanx leader, a level 10 utility that protects an adjacent ally and gives you a bonus to hit.
Female Human Warlord
This heavily armored human was first seen as Alusair Obarskyr in the Aberrations set, originally released in late 2004. We chose this figure because we wanted to provide a choice for a well-armored, regal female character. The power designed for this version is reminiscent of her old commander ability, which granted extra damage to allies that charge. Inevitable wave, a new at-will power for the warlord, is a great target-designating power for melee-heavy parties.
Male Shifter Ranger
The longtooth shifter is naturally suited to the ranger class, especially one that wields two weapons. His power is a little more defensive than most ranger at-wills. When using shield of blades, the ranger gets a small boost to Armor Class if he hits his foe.
Keep an eye open for the July and Beyond article for the contents of the third Martial Heroes box. Next time: more Arcane Heroes!
