HeroClix Clix Beat: Kantus Gears of WarThe Kantus is an interesting beast (no pun intended). Introduced in the Gear of War Heroclix set, the Kantus may be one of the most underutilized figures in the game. For 70 points, this common figure packs just 6 clicks of life with an average of just 1 damage.... even dropping down to [0] at the end of the dial. He doesn't have any move-and-attack powers, and his only damage reduction comes in the form of Toughness in the first click of life.

So Kantus kinda sucks, right? WRONG. Anyone who is just looking at the combat capabilities of this figure is completely missing the point.

HeroClix Locust Horde Team AbilityTEAM ABILITY: LOCUST HORDE: This character can use Phasing/Teleport. When it does, after actions resolve you may knock back one adjacent opposing character 1 square. Uncopyable.

MOBILITY
This character has the uncanny ability to be mobile. Three clicks of Leap/Climb is a great start, and if you lose that you can fall back on the Locust Horde Team Ability, which grants a special Phasing/Teleport. Since Kantus' attack values tend to go up (It's never lower than [9]), never be afraid to push him to get him where you want. Mobility is highly important here because the Kantus is a fantastic utility piece.

HeroClix Kantus Dial

MOBILE HEALER
70 points seems high for a utility piece, but keep in mind that the Kantus has a full dial of Support, 4 clicks of Perplex, and that awesome mobility we've talked about. As if that wasn't enough his high attack power makes him very potent when it comes to healing. Even at his low point, Kantus only needs to roll a "7" to heal a friendly that has a defense value of [16]! And if you want Superman or Iron Man to Carry him around, then more power to 'ya.

cool

I think this guy is pretty cool. Raam is still my favourite from the set, and I play him with Halo Brutes when I play him (each is +3 grenade pool).

Kantus is seconded only to blackest night atom

Kantus is terrible. That is all.

Posted by: nick wilfong on 6/8/2013 7:29:42 PM
They just need to make the Gears 2nd set so I can get an
Armored Kantus...and a berserker....and a Queen Myrra...

And the faithful shall truly be rewarded their 70 points for using Kantus.

Sounds like a good replacement for batman alpha Alfred.

Raam is what drew me to try the GoW set. The kantus are what keeps me playing them. One of my favorite pieces in the game! Raam & 2 kantus are devastating.

Here's proof how awesome they are. My iPhone knows how to autocorrect kantu. (it just did).

Correction. 596.

One. Word. Apocalypse. Warrior theme teams with two of these, him, and three Maulers, give you 600 points of complete god.

This is one of the best support pieces in the game. Not only does he have perplex and support, he starts off with an Ink Grenade which is the best grenade in the game in my opinion. The thing that really makes him great is the Locust Horde TA- This allows him to easily get away if he gets tied up by another piece. Having two of the 5 major support powers (Support, TK, Outwit, PC and Perplex), an ink grenade to start and the ability to automatically break away thanks to phasing/teleport, he is a great choice for a support piece.

The Kantus and Raam are two of my favorite pieces to play together. I love using the non-Marvel and DC pieces in my area. Field a Kantus, get weird looks, ..., profit! Got to love it!

They seem to be VERY situational. Add to that the lack of many possibilities for keyword teams - I NEEEDS me the re-roll - and I just can't see them having enough upside to be fielded often.

Posted by: Jonah Keel on 3/23/2012 1:02:33 PM
I use kantus all the time with hulks, keeps em perplexed and heals when he needs it.

Posted by: Elky72 on 3/23/2012 6:06:54 AM
I have seen Kantus annihilate opposing teams. Usually they hang back with Raam, perplexing him and keeping him fresh with support. Play pairs of them, use the TA to keep people from basing Raam, and they just annihilate things. I've got PTSD from facing these on the Bizarro map...
