Hey guys,
I bought this nice looking game just before the weekend (and spent the greater part of Saturday just assembling the models and the terrain!)

Anyway, we did manage to get in 1.5 games during Sunday, and my question is for the Plague Commander (big guy - dont remember the name right now). He has the Slow ability. For him it means he will just make a move of 1 tile each turn, and usually just waste his second action?
Or do I miss something here?

Thanks!

You could use his second action to move up an aggression level (particularly useful if you have been the subject of a blaze away action in a previous round).

He uses his second action to think about what he is going to do any unfortunate Enforcer who he gets his hands on!
His name is Stage 1A by the way.

He could also potentially get a mutation that gives him a short ranged (more than F range) attack during the mutation phase/twisted card. If he gets that he can use that second action to use that potentially.

Are you sure? My understanding was that the Stage 1A would never be able to attack at range even with mutations because he had no shoot stat.

You are correct. My apologies. I spoke before checking the updated FAQ.
Because the 1A has no Shoot stat, if he gets the ranged mutation it has zero effect.

Thanks for all the responses!

I guess he should also be able to use the Command action?
We havent played with it yet, but it seems like something he should be able to do?

He can use Command actions but...
Command is a long action.

Ahh, didnt notice that.
Then he will mostly have to just skip the second action then :-)

Also be ready to drop Move cards on him. Nothing tightens the guts of Enforcer players more than the big guy steamrolling towards them.
