Somebody with good eyes of somebody alredy owning Myth,
what is with the captain crossbow?
Has he really three bolts loaded at the same time or are those just some spikes on his crossbow?

I think he is referring to these:





From what I can gather, its three bolts. This reflects the game mechanic where the Captain can shoot multiple times at big range. See the slaughterfield vids during wave three for an example of this captain laying down the heat on the heroes.

This might be my favorite captain for this reason.

Though he can fire 4 bilts per cycle...

Also, his priority mechanic seems weird
First is farthest away? So he's getting closer to the front row heroes (soldier/acolyte) so he can fire over them on the ranged heroes?
And still, since the heroes must be "available", he's targeting those far away buy still close enough his movement and range can reach them...

Also, since he's always tryibg to shoot 2 heroes, do you have to find a first target based on priority, and then, while moving to reach that target,figure out if you can get a second hero to target (using his priorityagain?), all this while staying as far away as his range allows...

The rat figures were a big draw for me since Mice and Mystics is a favorite for the wife and myself.

I am really excited to swap out a few generic rat warriors for a few of these beauties.

Ah, you are most welcome!

I only wish I qualified for the one part of your post for actually owning the game.shake

Ah well, in April sometime, I will be a happy man, painting my Rath (Rat Captain).
