Besides the pink foam, is their any kind of "rock models" that can be used as the body? i think their mat be some GW scenery sets with extra rocks in it, or hobby plastic rocks hoping to get some input

Rules are AFU'ed

" At the start of any turn that a Rogue Idol is not able to charge or is not already in combat, its player must roll a D6. On a roll of a 1 it must charge a friendly unit if one is available to charge (and a single round of combat is fought as normal) or if no friendly units are available the Rogue Idol bellows and stomps, but otherwise may do nothing this turn. "

So on turn one, if there is no enemy within charge range you have 400pts doing nothing, not even moving.

If your opponent knows this he places a squad of cheap archers just outside charge range and shoots its pebbles off.


Only way out is to move one of your units infront as a 'stepping stone' and hope you roll a one.


Like the model tho'.

I completely agree. For the amount of detail it is quite overpriced by FW standard.

That being said though, I would love to see someone convert one as a deff dread for snakebites.

 I'm right, and nothing ever annoys me more. - Dim

Baring in mind I reckon I could build something equally good from Milliput in around 8 - 10 hours I would say 65 for a cast is very steep. Thats not to say I don't like the model as it looks great.

Thats exactly what I was thinking. I would expect to pay around that for something that is not cast. Id also expect it to come with a few more options, it looks like its missing something.

Pretty sure you're not understanding this right...

If no enemies are in range, roll a dice. On a 1: you must charge a friendly unit, or do nothing if you cannot charge one. On a 2-6: you may move as normal. Everything after "on the roll of a 1" in the rule you state only applies when you actually roll a 1 (that's why there's no period in the middle of that really long sentence...)

It's not too bad.

I think model railroad guys also use chunks of redwood bark. You may find it at a gardening shop. The bark has a very nice rock look to it...
