General description:
The new flying units for Terrasaurs in I Chomp NY. These guys bring a great new ability to the game known as: TOW - Choose 1 unit within 5 spaces of this figure and place that unit in a space it could legally occupy adjacent to this figure.

Uses:
This unit is great for setting up screens or positioning slow carnidons/brontox onto crucial parts of the map. Tow is going to be the ability to use with Terrasaurs in competitive games.

Strategies and game play:
Besides the basic usage of Tow on friendly units it can also be used on enemy units as well.
Some strategies I've used is Towing opponents screens to allow perfect power attacks. Another strategy is towing any non-flying unit into a hazard to destroy it. Lastly is to bring an opponents elite into brawling or blasting range away from cover.

Combos with other miniatures:
Some combos within faction is towing a brontox onto an adjacent power zone and then attacking with the boost it grants from Fortify.
This unit will be splashed into other factions just for the ability to move enemy units out of the way or into attack range.

Ways to counteract it:
Focus fire - when playing against these guys make sure to kill as many as possible each unit and monster turn. Remember they can remove units from power zones, securing buildings, and protective screens. They have a defense of 3 and wont benefit from cover so make sure to roll at least 3+ A-Dice and if possible 1 B-Die.

Strengths/Pros:
Tow is a great mobility advantage and offensive ability when used against enemy units.

Weaknesses/Cons:
Anti Air will help take these guys out and they lack blast attacks. They also lack bonus dice as well so shouldn't be a concern with combined attacks.

Artwork and aesthetics:
The paint job is on par with the rest of the faction and these have to be the best pre-painted models to hit the market

Overall rating:
I would rank this miniature a 10. It brings something new to the Faction and the game with out being over powered. These units are meant for mobility and positioning and wont be used for combined attacks on monsters. They also could fit comfortably in other factions solely for the Tow ability.

I collect Martians and Terrasaurs and mostly play martians because I like the models the most. Tow is a great ability as I had another player use it against me to drag my power pod away from being on a power square and next to a building causing me to lose securing the building. That was irritating.
