"You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man!"
We've finally hammered out the rules for or 'weird, super & monster' characters for our Weird World War II campaign. It was a lot of work, but they seem pretty good and solid now.
The weird characters come in tiers of 1 main character, side-kicks or teams of secondary characters and then henchmen that at best are only a bit above an average human. The main two stats are Avoidance & Mitigation. Both function as saves on a d6 against attacks, but have additional characteristics, such as avoidance increases movement & moving through rough ground, leaping obstacles, etc with more benefit the higher it goes, and Mitigation increases hit points as well as allows other benefits dependent on other optional skills. Stats go up to 5, but only a main character can have 5, secondary characters are limited to 4. In addition main characters can't have a combined score of more than 8, side-kicks a score of 6 and team members a score of 5. Henchmen are maxed at a lowly 2. And of course there are a host of other skills to tailor the characters to create what you have in mind.
So for the Totenkinder force Gingerbread Man is a side-kick class character. He's the first to be introduced since he was very much a simple speed paint!
Gingerbread Man is a golem. But not of wood, stone or flesh...he is a confection of super-hardened baked goods, forged in Frau Totenkinder's magic oven in the shaderealm.
He has an Avoidance of 4, giving him a move of 9" (compared to normal move of 5") and he can run through woods without problem and leap over 4" high obstacles with ease. His Mitigation is 2. He has an additional three attacks and once per battle he can do a whirlwind attack for 4 further attacks. He can also blast a wave of heat out of his mouth, "Oven Breath" which is an 8" cone attack doing 3 dice attack on anyone hit by the blast.
For scale, here is the Gingerbread Man with an Ahnenerbe Flashentrooper.
The trooper will have a blue-glow for his weapon, like the magic icing runes for the Gingerbread Man.
