My idea with this thread is to share your funniest/best heroes and comment on other's. It could be a Ghoul with Academic/Speed (for those who allow them to use misc. items), or it could be your 'eadbashin' Strongman Orc Boss
My own suggestion for a competent Skink, is a promoted Skink Brave with the following:
M WS BS S T W I A Ld
6 5 6 4 3 3 5 4 7
Spear & Shield
Ithilmar Armour (Light Armour users can use Ithilmar in our house rules)
Shooting & Speed
Scale Sheer Surfaces
This gives a Skink with 3x12" S4 hits, which hits on 2+. He can also move without suffering further penalties, and as such keep his distance to his enemies. Should they get close, he can climb up the nearest building, and keep the knives flowing from up there.
Should he get charged, he has 4x strike first attacks (spears are always strike first in our rules, only countered by Lightning Reflexes or other spears), and a 3+ armour save.
Also, this one is very fun to play with, and a great hero to run around your enemy with, annoying the crap out of him!
