Suprise Guest Artist - GU Comic's Woody Hearn! Bonus Reward For Our Backers

Okay, last week's mystery artist announcement was our most popular ever... but the real secret is there were TWO mystery artists the whole time! Our second mystery artist is Woody Hearn from GU comics!

Woody Hearn has really outdone himself this time with the heavily armored and mounted Folrart Knight Captain. As the illustrator of a comic about gamers that has done more than it's share of World of Warcraft and other fantasy game strips, Woody is no stranger to armored knights. The Captain here came out great, possibly my favorite piece by Woody to date.
The Folrart Knight Captain is more than just a nice card to have, it's a staple card. Each Sphere of influence has its main subtype, a deck-type that employs its most numerous array of units. For Refess (yellow) it's the Solar Kingdom, a huge kingdom-turned-empire under control of the the royal family of Folrart and the True God Church. Their units are known for sun motifs and disciplined ranks of armored soldiers.  Folrart Knight Captain is the main subtype buffer of the Solar Kingdom -- and since Refess (yellow) cards are known for working together -- guess what, their main subtype buffer is a key card. The Moon Duchy of Crest, -- the primary subtype for Lawtia (violet) -- for example, can be played without it's main subtype buffer, since Crest decks tend to rely on different strategies. For Solar Kingdom, though, group buffing is king. And Folrart Knight Captain's +10 to AT (attack) and +5 to DF (defense) for all friendly Solar Kingdom units can go a long way.  Put him on the front lines with a Sunlight Knight, who gives another +5 DF bonus to all Refess (yellow) units and starts with a hefty 30 base Attack, and you've a great start to your field.

Since you'll be seeing a lot of the Captain, having alternate art is very much appreciated. Woody's take on the Folrart Knight Captain is the very first piece of alternate art for the card, so this is your chance to mix up your art choices for your Solar Kingdom decks.  Everyone backing at $20 or above gets a copy of Woody's card, and if you're in at $50 or higher, you get 3 copies (complete playset). Of course, you're free to mix and match copies of the original Captain and Woody's in a deck if you want, for example with 1 copy of Woody's and 2 copies of the original.

See, we still have a surprise or two up our sleeves... almost makes you wonder what big suprises we have in store for next week, the LAST week of our Kickstarter (hint, hint)!

      That is awesome! I've been a fan from basically the beginning of GU Comics. (Helps to have put a few dozen days played time into EverQuest. ;-) )

      Is there a term for that? "Devout Woodyist?"
