are going to be looking at the newly previewed Baron
Blood from Fantastic Forces
the days where orins could be ridiculous Lord John
Farnsworth was bitten by Dracula…yes Dracula. Later
instead of fighting for London he joined Hydra and
the Nazis and then started sucking for the Nazis.
Which makes sense, because the Nazis do suck.
Cost and Abilities:
points. 0 range Hydra Team Ability.
with charge for three clicks.
10 with blades claws for two clicks. The steal
energy for the rest of the dial.
16 with impervious. Next 16 with invulnerability.
Toughness down the rest of the dial.
2 with the always horrible Battle Fury.
Woah, those are some angry purple wings.
Hydra is an underrated ability. Plus 1 to attack is
a pretty nice bonus. But it is a terrible ability
for a close combat character to have.
In Contact with Oracle can help boost the charge and
then the defense. Damage Shield is not a terrible
idea. You’re going to be in close combat and he can
absorb a lot of damage and with his steal energy he
will keep coming back to hurt you.
Battle Field Condition
guess Power Dampening Field is nice for him. He’ll
be using blade claws and he will minus two because
of his defense. This will insure that he stays
around longer. I also recommend Deep Shadows to
limit people hitting you from really far away.
How to Beat Him: Light him up from far away. When you hit him, hit him a few
times to take him out. With steal energy he’ll keep
coming back at you.
How to Play Him: Telekinesis him is the most important part of your team. You
have to push him out there and get him that first
attack. Probability control on your team to get
that really good blades claws roll.
The person to compare him too is Sauron. A flyer
with charge, steal energy and blades/claws. I’ve
played with Sauron several times and he never was as
good as I thought he would be. Baron blood is
better then Sauron and I don’t doubt that. Baron
blood has a very nice defense ability, but does not
have as good of attack, nor is he as cheap. I do
like him though. He is very interesting, but can
not get above a three because he has no range and
his attack is low for the point cost.
