Ulix Turner Porkbelly Protector questions and confirmations


TrenchFoot

Question

Good day all. I am having some issues with Ulix2, but the good parts is its made me learn a lot more about the internal mechanics of the game, so that's a bonus. I apologize for the length and amount of questions, some stuff I'm 90% sure on and some I have no clue. 

 

1. Piggyback Ride: This model may take shooting actions while engaged. 

Can ulix shoot anyone, or does it just mean he can choose to shoot who he is engaged with? Because of his size 4 he has quite a bit of LoS. 

 

2. Pigs of Fire: If this model is this crew's leader, after resolving any Action in which a friendly Pig ended a move in base contact with (or moved through) an enemy model, that enemy model gains Burning +1.

Ulix is a friendly pig, so I assume it applies to him also? if so, since he has trample, can he run back and forth to give multiple burning to the same model/models? 

It specifically says Action with a capitol A, so I assume this only applies to actions, not abilities. The War Pig doing Deadly Pursuit for example at end of turn would not cause burning if he touched another model, nor any bonus movement from the front of the card. also the bonus movement from 12 cups of coffee. correct?

if it is only during an Action, what about movement triggers specific to actions, Like Shove Aside or Reposition?

What about the Herd 'em ability from Penelope and Hog Whisperers, do they trigger an Action on the targeted Pig, and thus allow the burning if they touch bases? I think it does as they say its an Action that follows an Action, but I wanted to be sure as that would mean it also applies to Bacon Beeline, meaning the target Pig does two wounds and also inflicts burning on each model. is that correct?

 

3. Bacon Beeline: Other friendly pig only. Push the target up to its Mv+2 in any direction, ignoring other models. Enemy models the target moved through this way suffer 2 damage. 

Crow Emblazoned: Replace the target with a Pig Minion of higher cost and Sz equal to the target's Sz+X, where X is the number of models with Burning the target moved through this way. Then the new model Heals 2.

 

is "higher cost and Sz equal to the targets Sz+X" one requirement or two? as in, to get replaced, does the replacing model need to be both cheaper and smaller? or is it A. higher cost and B. Sz equal to the targets Sz+X? examples:

Can the X be zero, so you could turn a Swine-cursed or Gracie  (Sz 3) into a warpig just with the trigger? or can you ONLY replace the model if its smaller, I.E. a Squealer (Sz 2) runs through a model with burning?

On the subject of the value of X, do you need the exact number of burning models, or can it be a higher number and still get the change? using the previous Squealer, if he blasts through three enemy models, it would be Sz 2+3, making a total of Sz 5, which of course would stop the replacement. is it Sz five only, or Sz five or less? It seems really strong to hit the max models and get the change, but I can't tell if its like a duel for example where you can go over and still hit the target number. 

 

I've only played him for a few games, On almost all of these I've erred on the side of caution. I'm just making sure I'm not missing anything, or underplaying him.

He can shoot as if he wasn't engaged.

It does apply to him as well. It only happens at the end of an action, so you are right deadly pursuit would not cause it. Shove aside will happen during an action, so it can cause this to happen. 

Herd 'em does cause an action

But it doesn't matter how many times you moved through the model that action, it won't ever gain more than burning +1 from pigs of fire

The pig minion must be a higher cost than the target and it must also be a size that is equal to the size of the target + the number of burning models moved through. So to turn a swine cursed into a war pig you must run through 0 models with burning. 

 

Hope that answers the questions

That all makes sense and clears up a lot, I think I need just one more clarification on the burning.

When I asked about moving through a model multiple times, I should have clarified multiple actions. so I don't mean Ulix spins in place, I meant action one walk, action two walk, action three walk. could he give three burning with three actions, or can a model only get or give one burning a round?

This would more often come up as me choosing a single target to burn; I use bacon Beeline, Ulix walks through the same model model, then new action charges back. would that single target at that point get three burning?
