Week 4 is a fail for me. Haven't had the mojo todo anything for it. Played in the Batman tournament last weekend had me all enthused for painting BMG and ended painting a loads of Batman stuff instead.........
Nevermind we will see if the itch is scratched and I can get back on track for week 5!
Anyway Ra's Al Ghul (Neeson Version) I finiished ages ago as I just really liked the model. However the ninja's put me off as I don't like painting black. So decided to tackle my phobia and force myself to have a crack. These were all primed black so didn't need a lot really just touch ups to the primer and the eye slits, weapons painted appropriate colours.
Most the ninja's share very similar stats just the odd trait here and there changes there use.
This is the contents of the League of Shadows Starter.
The Starter plus the additional ninja blister.
Ying is one of the Standard Ninja's his attribute is climbing claws and carries the katana a nice double blood weapon that has rerolls to hit and to wound!
Yang again has the same stats as Yang however his defining attribute is Combo with Katana increasing his attacks as spending 2 counters gives him 3 attacks. Netting him 4 double blood attacks with rerolls. What makes him more deadly is if he can be 'Inspired' or 'Kill them!' by a leader or a side kick potnentially pusing his attacks to 4 which when combo is applied gives him 6 attacks!
Lotus is a bit more special he costs nearly 17 rep more than either Ying/Yang but carries Shuriken and has the rapid fire trait allowing him to increase his Rate of fire from 2 to 3 allowing a barrage of shots against a target. Lotus also comes with Dodge allowing him to try and avoid missile attacks and reflexes allowing him rerolls for it. Lotus also carries a katana so is not shabby in combat either he has 1 more will power allowing him to move that little bit further or that extra attack after a run.
Seeker is one of a pair that come in the Ninja booster and armed with a bow. Seeker has no combat weapons as such but carry a bow with standard arrows and poison arrows that cause paralysis. Seeker usually ends up with nightvision goggles, extra ammo (poison arrow) and either hidden deployment or climbing claws if the funding allows.
Shadow is more of a trickster type ninja. Shadow has undercover giving him a bonus move allowing him to move further forward. Shadows main obvious difference is he carries a Bo staff which only causes single stun damage however it has reach so he can attack without being in base to base and is handy so has rerolls to hit. Shadow's really purpose is block los of the enemy with his smoke bomb. Again usually he gets extra ammo for a second bomb. Blocking shooters for a couple of turns to get the combat ninja's closer to the enemy.
My entire League of Shadows collection so far. Interestingly DKR Bane and his mercs can be use in this crew giving a lot of choice and combos.
Also this week I finished off my official Knight models objectives, Ammo, Loot and Titan. I now have two sets (including my scratch built ones) so I can now run dem games with people down at the club.
