Master Chief
Faction: UNSC
Points: 125

Weapon: BR55 Battle Rifle
When this unit succeeds at a shot and the attack roll is doubles, the shot deals 1 extra damage. (grenade token)

Jump*- When this unit is dealt damage from a grenade, reduce the damage dealt by 1.
Hand-To-Hand Attack**- When this unit succeeds at a shot against an adjacent unit, the shot deals an extra 1 damage.

Here's the dial values. The numbers on top are the health
S= Speed
A= Attack
DF= Defense
DM= Damage

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

S 7 7 7 7 6 6 6 6

A 9 8 7 7 7 7** 7** 6**

DF 16* 15* 14* 14* 14 14 14 14

DM 3 3 3 2 2 2 2 2


General Description: A staple in any UNSC-based squad.

Uses: 1) Use him to rush your opponent's spawn points
2) Upgrade your other units, and whip him out.

Strategies and game play: Like I said above, use him to rush the spawn points and
combine him with the Arbiter, other Spartans, or both.

Combos with other miniatures: See above.

Ways to counteract it: Get something big (like the Hunter) and take him out ASAP.

Strengths: His abilities allow extra damage, which goes a long way.
His speed of 7 allows for rushing and setting up a defensive offensive.
Takes 8 hits to bring him down, which by then, your opponent's army should
be no problem.

Weaknesses: When Master Chief gets hit 5 times, there is no ability. At that time, you have to hope your opponent doesn't roll high enough with a grenade to hit you.
Another weakness is the abilities switch. So, pretty soon, that Jump ability you rely on is gone.

Artwork and aesthetics: I absolutely LOVE how this miniature's design is. I mean, out of 1 to
10, I give this guy a 20 on looks.

Overall Score: 9/10, lost a point for its weakness... I mean come on, its like the Death Star's
exhaust port.

You mentioned his ability and speed, but what are they? So far you haven't told us what his health is, his speed, or whatever his ability might be. For those of us who don't have the fig (ie Me) you could elaborate a little more. Edit it a little bit and include info about the fig's dial values so we know what you're talking about.

It's fixed, but the stats are messed up.
