I got in a game with him the other day vs this a**hole. Merv brought a Zoraida/Collodi crew and I learned the meaning of frustration dealing with the latter. He is such a bloody pain to put down. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I lost, badly, but by no fault of the rider. He pretty much held up the entire enemy crew for 2 turns - on his own (while Seamus missed stuff with his flintlock, the gunslinger trudged through a forest and the Belles just flopped around the place being Obey-ed).
On an unrelated note, some of you may recognise the fat and thin Daemon princes in the background in these pics.
