The Shavastii are an alien race with a completely different biology to humans. Endowed with a strong survival instinct, all the Shasvastii are partially hermaphroditic, allowing them to bear a fast growth Spawn-Embryo inside them that they will later implant in enemy territory. After some time, a Shasvastii will sprout from the Spawn-Embryo, which will follow genetically codified information to continue the mission of the Shasvastii Continuum.
Spawn-Embryos can feed from the corpse of the fallen Shasvastii, so it is considered that no Shasvastii troop yields Victory Points to his enemy until his Spawn-Embryo has been wiped out.
It is therefore considered that, to count VP for victory as for Retreat! Shasvastii have three levels: Unconscious, Dead, and Spawn. When the Shasvastii is Dead, replace it with a Spawn-Embryo Marker (SPAWN-EMBRYO). The Spawn-Embryo cannot move from its location, attack, or defend itself. It has ARM 0, BTS 0 and if it suffers one Wound it must be removed from the battlefield.
- What happens if a Shasvastii receives one or more Wounds?
If the Shasvastii receives 1 Wound, it falls Unconscious. If it receives 2 Wounds, it passes to Dead state (Replace the miniature by a Spawn-Embryo Marker). If the Spawn-Embryo receives one more Wound, it must be removed from the game table.
- When do Shasvastii give Victory Points?
Only when the Spawn-Embryo gets destroyed.
- What is the difference between a Spawn-embryo and a Seed-embryo?
