I'm starting a league soon in which Cryx and Legion have forced other armies to help them recover an athanc. For the last battle, I want to have an athanc act as a scenario piece in the middle of the table. But rather than it just be a boring flag, I want there to be some benefit to controlling/contesting it, possibly a high risk/high reward sort of deal.
I don't know how much info exists about athancs, but I'm hoping for some cool ideas about what the athanc could do for the final battle. I thought about:
- +2 to all stats while B2B, but suffer 1 point of damage at the start of your turn.
- a cumulative +1 for each consecutive turn a warlock/caster is B2B, with a cumulative +1 damage
- while B2B and no other enemy model is, warlock/caster can deal 1 point of damage to a model within 8 inches of the athanc
Obviously, my creativity is lacking on this idea, which is why I'm hoping you guys can come up with a memorable piece for the final battle.
Thanks in advance for any help!
