Warhammer, WH 40K, DnD, many RTS's, etc. In many of these games, a caster left unchecked is often devastating. So in "casual" brikwars, an army that doesn't commit a lot of resources to eliminating a caster early will probably be hurting in the long run.

I like to use incendiary specialists with just a single supernatural d4 to introduce new players to supernatural dice - but given the limitations they can only really use it to make their grenades and bullets do a bit extra damage, or as a boost to armor in their "kevlar vest" or whatever.
It's true, these are all wizard/caster-type oriented. Similar to what you are saying IV, I'd really like to start running some Berserker barbarians in my barbarian force who all have a single d6 for conditioning/athletic use. Essentially, this would give the option of dumping +1d6 to movement, being "armored" or increasing damage each turn. The potential devastation such a fig would cause, even with just a hand-weapon, is utterly tempting!
