Ok, I gotta be the dissenter on this. I have to be. I can’t keep my mouth shut here.
Colossals are stupid.
I can hear you all getting mad right now. Slow down. Calm down. Let me explain my problems based on what I know right now.
Monetary Cost: Estimated at more then a battle engine (and those go for about $85 around here) I just can’t justify the cost!
Logistics: How on earth are you gonna transport those things?! They are massive!
Point Cost: The only thing I have seen is an estimation of 18-20 points. Thats EXPENSIVE. And unless they are strong enough to only be destroyed by other Colossals (bad idea) you can lose em to normal jacks/troops. Even with a bigger grid.
Basically I see these only showing up in 50+ point games. You put that thing down in 35 points, and I will WREAK IT with my jacks/troops. Its base is huge and you can’t really screen it.
Now I do like one thing: The things look AMAZING. But that alone just…doesn’t excite me. I would EVENTUALLY possibly get one once I have, well, everything else for my force, just as a centerpiece for my army.
Its kinda like how I feel about Battle Engines: They are basically Jack/Beasts without the focus/fury mechanic. I mean honestly, do people LIKE the Battle Engines? I never hear people talk about them honestly, other then in a negative way.
The troll image I saw though on Trollbloodscrum….GIANT MULG?! MODEL COOL! Still wouldn’t use it in play though haha.
