Skullcap Garret bio
« on: 17 February 2011, 21:19:06 »
Does anyone have a scan of the bio card for this figure? It's not on Warrenborn and I'm just mildy curious about the character. He shows up in a lot of the early DA prievews, usually getting his arse shot out of his mech.

I don't have the Dossier but I do have the info (minus the serial # of the 'Mech) on Heavy Metal Pro.
Here ya go.
Faction: Swordsworn
Regiment: Prince's Men
Mech: Spider
Serial Number: UNKNOWN
2 Tronel XII Medium Lasers
DOB: 04/14/3098
Hair: None
Eyes: Green

Skullcap Garret has based his life on a single principle: luck. Though it would seem ludicrous to be so cavalier about life, Skullcap (not even our Order has managed to discover his given first name) nevertheless has winged it throughout his career - with enviable results.
     Born on the world of Caph to scientist studying the indigenous dinosaurs there, he lifted offplanet in his mid-teens to get away from what he called "the abysmally boring dino's."
     He made enemies in the underworld as quickly as he changed identities, but one such encounter was a little too close for comfort. He was left with a large scar carved across the crown of his head - apparently the source of his "Skullcap" moniker.
     Whether seeking asylum or simply another thrill, he joined the Prince's Men soon after they were formed. We have been unable to determine at what point he acquired MechWarrior skills, but he immediately demonstrated his worth in that regard. His Spider - which he nicknamed "Dino Killer" - fits his lone-wolf attitude to a T.

The Spider is the premier scout 'Mech design. With an unsurpassed movement profile - especially its jump capability - the Spider can enter into enemy-held territory and extricate itself better than any other unit save a ground vehicle or VTOL. Though it's armor is light and it should not be kept in combat for any length of time, it does have a pair of medium laser that serve it well in a limited engagement.

It was one of the more lackluster Sword Sworn mechs from the first Dark Age set.

It had lots of color on the dial which gave it plenty of special equipment when it gets damaged, but light mechs have short dials and this never had a defense higher than 18.

D146 Skullcap Garrett (Spider) 129 pts. (Swordsworn)

For 129 points, a Dark Age army could deploy two formations of infantry with the same speed and damage value.  Attack and Defense would also be enhanced simply by being multiple units in formations.

Mine has the heat dial sticker on upside-down.
