The Frankenstahl Pre-Game Show

Today we’re going to take a look at what we know about the last of the Tannhauser releases for the foreseeable future, The Frankenstahl.

If you take a look at the image below, I’ve made a couple of enlargements for better viewing. The first thing you’ll notice is Frank, as we’re going to call him is an Epic level hero as indicated by his fifth Characteristic row, and his higher than average Characteristic values. While his Combat and Stamina Values are quite impressive, his Movement value is certainly less than desirable, I hope that he will have a token like Celerity to give him a much needed speed boost. But his some what lower Mental value will make interplay between Frank, Hoss, and Hermann quite interesting.

The next thing I’d like to call your attention to is the addition of a third yet to be identified Affiliation Stamp, which may or may not be for the Esiendivision, which could give us hint as to where future Reich releases will be headed should FFG choose to return to Tannhauser’s U-Chronic Universe.

Finally I’d like everyone to take a look at that figure, he is going to be massive; guessing by the average TH base size of 25mm he will be at least 50mm tall as he is approximately two base widths high. That’s very much on par with Asteros who is approx. 55mm tall, and a good deal taller then someone like Hermann who is about 31mm tall.

Well all for now.
