Arcturus Mengsk(Hero Concept)

Hero and Skin Suggestions
Just a friendly reminder, there is this cool villain called Mengsk. One of the most important character in SC and one of the best Blizzard made characters(IMO).

Because I want Mengsk so much I decided to make this concept:
https://www.heroesfire.com/hots/concept/arcturus-mengsk-9801

TL,DR: Mengsk is ranged specialist with strong pushing potential and various support and utility options for his team

Any feedback is welcomed.
Hope they'll make your wish come true.
You already know i really love ya concept from that other thread mate especially the trait design.
Thank you both. Maybe he will get here this year.
I like Mengsk as a bad guy but he is not any kind of fighter, he is a manipulator from behind the scenes. I'm not sure what kind of weapon he would use for auto attacks? Some sort of pistol maybe? Or perhaps he throws words to hurt the enemy like a star craft dragon born? Fus Ru HA!
Something is wrong with your numbers. 1000 silent supporters does not appear possible to achieve.
Also, basing the hero around Sylvanis's old mind control doesn't seem very potent.

Yes, I think pistol would fit him the best.

Well with 2 per minion it's 14 per wave. Add in takedowns, camps, forts and objectives and it can be achieved somewhere in the lategame. Also they don't dissapear after use so once you get them you should worry only about cooldown.
And because "mind control" isn't heroic it should be viable.
This concept is utter brilliance. I really hope this gets made, just reading your concept is making me salivate at the thought of just abolishing the forts with a mass of marines. also suggestion for his trait maybe turn all ally minions into marines too so they buff from his talent choices.

I'd say a revolve or magnum type side arm weapon basically the one you see Jimmy shoot Tychus in the head with would work for Mengsk (though maybe gold trims style).

Doubt my Mengsk would be better then yours since that supporters mechanic is just too hard to top.
Thanks all for the feedback. I updated his trait with few new ways to get Silent Supporters.

I'm not sure if that wouldn't be to strong, because Marines are stronger than usual minions and it would starve enemy of regen globes.
So have you seen the last teaser: https://twitter.com/BlizzHeroes/status/1021802194805448704

I think it could be hinting Mengsk, so maybe we will see soon what dev team made him like.
