One thing is for sure: Gimli can be a tank. If you boost him properly and you're able to control the damage, he can kill Nazgul with one hand and hill troll with another. Stats are also good and the threat is high enough accordingly. However i don't play him much mostly 'cause he's in sphere. I just started buying the first AP cycle and simply put, the cards for aren't so good as the others. But I think he will shine thematically in Dwarrowdelf cycle. Very nice artwork. Verdict: 4/5.
