I think it's an absolutely beautiful sculpt!! Shocked

FIVE activations, you cannot retaliate against him, Block and Climb and 2 movement (so nowhere to hide) - and Torment to compensate for his 7 attack and -1 damage (like Achilles) to compensate for his 8 defense stats. A very solid, simple destructive monster!

For the rest nothing special, what you see is what you get!

Almost as unchillies as Achillies himself. More wounds, less defense.

Faster moving than regular Achilles too, for the same points.

Certainly one of my favorite creature sculpts and he seems like one of those units that will be usefull in pretty much any army.

Except the medieval sword, totally out of place in an Ancient Greek world!

One thing that the Lion lacks is an area attack or effect. He's a bit like the Manticore: a very strong monster against a single target (like a God) but having difficulties versus Guarding units and effects. -1 damage from attacks makes him roughly equal to a 10 defense rating. Furthermore 2 movement and climb and 5 activations makes it very hard for his victim to get away from the fight; the Lion is a persistent and resilient hunter.

Like the meeting of Perseus and Medusa, the thought of the meeting of The Lion with the Veteran Heracles (with the Lion Hide) makes me smile...

The Lion is a very strong unit. I believe a re-match with Heracles is in order ;-) One less wound, no retaliation, Torment and 5 activations versus Heracles 3 rerolled dices and maybe one ranged attack first (heracles strength)
