How bout them motor scouts?

Recommended Posts

Looking at the attack stat on that action, I'm not sure I'd want to spend the card so the little guy can *try* to hit something.  With the exception of the rail gunner, all the champions seem to have really terrible attacks in terms of accuracy.  I wonder if there's some mechanic we don't know about yet to cover for that.

Why are they 'motor' scouts if they are pedaling, that's what I want to know. *checks behind the windscreen for a concealed motor* *always suspected pedi-taxis of false advertising, anyway, 'specially those with boomboxes*

Their stat is not good, but TOS seems to make much 'fuller' use of the range of stats: i.e we have already seen many more units with df stats at 3-4 then we would probably expect to see in Malifaux. The scout is not going to wreck the world, but it's not unthinkable that he'll pop off a shot or two with a modicum of success.

Remember these are all playtest values - not final.

But as stated above, TOS doesn't have a stat curve like Malifaux, where 5 is average and below is plain bad. Stats in TOS are used all up and down the range, making things like AV2-4 much more dangerous than expected to all armies.

Wow the latest set of cards have buffed the motor scout quite a bit.

Its now df/wp 4 (+2) and shoots with an AV of 5 (+3). It also gains an inspired token as well as the +2Sp when given the charge order.

Seems like a far scarier harassment option now.
