Dwarf. Warrior.

While Thalin is committed to a quest, deal 1 damage to each enemy as it is revealed by the encounter deck.

There hammer on the anvil smote,
There chisel clove, and graver wrote;
There forged was blade, and bound was hilt;
The delver mined, the mason built.

Core Set #6. Tactics.


Now Thalin isn't a very good hero. His one willpower goes completely against his ability, though T Theoden and Dain help in that regard. I usually only play him against enemies with 1 HP, of which there are a paltry nine out of a total of 414! However, 1HP enemies usually have multiple copies and some sort of nasty ability that Thalin nueters. He isn't a star, but he is fairly solid, especially in multiplayer.

Thalin was my first chosen hero in my first deck, mainly due the artwork and the ability which looked cool at first sight. Yeah, I know, the ability which goes totally against the stats, which are not much of use in questing and should I waste Unexpected Courage to make him be useful?! We'll see. I'm not done with him yet. One reason why I consider to play Fellowship decks or multiplayer. For now....verdict remains: 3/5.

Thalin has a cool ability and as we all know.. stats that don't support him. Except when it's suddenly time for sieges and battles, here he can suddenly quest for a lot more thanks to things like dwarven axes and armour that can be found in abundance in tactics. I also quite like chip damage against high defense enemies, it makes them a little easier to take down a turn or so faster when you might otherwise wound an enemy down to 1 hp. He's still not great, but I like him together with leadership Dain for some extra stat buffs.
