PostSubject: Hydra over done   24th April 2011, 12:18 pm

Ok this is mainly because my dad thinks the hydra sucks, because i always kill it
My point I kill it because it is able to smash infantry units in one round of combat
7 strength 5 attacks, thunderstomp, 2 beast masters also getting to attack, breath weapon equal to its remaining wounds, 4 up scaly skin, 4 up regen, terror

The question is-
Do you think they over did the hydra, or does he suck?

The Hydra doesn't suck. But if you're playing High Elves you should have enough shooting to take it out before it does much. So I can see how it would suck to your dad.
He should really try using those Harpies I traded him to take out bolt throwers. Not sure what else he is running but he could also try to hide/shield it with terrain or get some cover from intervening troops. Might help.
He just needs to figure out how to minimize the effectiveness of your shooting some how. Lot's of ways to do this, just try something different until he finds something that works.

The hydra is what I consider to be the last 'overpowered' monster - it's incredibly effective, cheap for what it does, and is in a very effective army.

If you stick it in the middle of the board and run it in to shooting, however, it can be killed. It's not a steamtank.

Do you ever think, "Maybe he's just letting me win?"

No i dont think that because he cant remember the rules, and when he loses he gets really mad and wont play for a few days, he is still a newbie

That's probably it then. I could give your dad a hateful demon army that wins GTs, but if he doesn't know what he's doing with it then he'll probably lose.
