Shadows of Brimstone: Swamp Slugs of Jargono Enemy Pack
The vicious Swamp Slugs that lurk in Jargono are terrifying to behold! These massive molluscs can grow to enormous size with an underbelly lined with razor-sharp mandibles and a maw filled with tiny grinding teeth to devour their prey! Acidic mucus oozes from their gnarled skin to help ward off enemies and to aid in digestion once they have caught a meal.
This Enemy Pack contains everything you need to add the Swamp Slugs to your games of Shadows of Brimstone. There are 3 large Swamp Slug models included, as well as the large Enemy Record Sheet and all of the Threat Cards needed to add them to your games.

My group noticed that, despite these creatures being slugs, they're incredibly fast. With a movement speed of 9, they will always outrun a player's D6 movement (even after any item bonuses).
Since they're initiative 3, we've houseruled that their movement should also be reduced to 3. That way they're a creeping threat that should be dealt with before they get close enough to start dealing AoE damage on top of their normal attack.
Aside from that, a great addition to the game.

I am not sure if any balancing has ben done to theese since the gencon version. But they are really tough! They are fast and also with the acidic mucus they hit everyone around them at the end of the turn, and with the low initiative they are gonna group up on you after you have made your own movement, so I guess scatter is the way to go. Combined with the 6 damage on a hit and also tougnhess, theese seem a little bit too much? An early run encountering theese had 3 spawns and we were beginning fresh with 3 players on the second room in the first mission. It was devastating to say the least.
I like the enemy model and the general thought, but something should maybe be balanced to them, like a lower speed. The combo of insane speed (for a slug!) and the AoE damage is a tad to much imho.
