  • Ambush - This unit may choose not to deploy normally, and instead be deployed completely within 3" of the edge of the board on any turn after the first.
  • Backstab - This model gains an additional die to hit and damage rolls when it attacks from the target's back arc.
  • Espionage - Target enemy warlock or caster within short range. Friendly model/units in her CMD can make a full advance.

Thoughts on Anastasia Di Bray[edit]

Anastasia Di Bray in a nutshell[edit]

Anastasia di Bray is a solo who provides +1 on your starting roll and then is a cheap solo. The key thing to remember about her is that she swings the chance of you winning the starting roll from 50% to just over 66%. Whatever she does on the battlefield after that is mostly a bonus - if she eats a boosted shot or a spell and doesn't kill anyone along the way she's still done her job by drawing out the enemy boosts. Espionage is just a nice bonus.

Combos and Synergies[edit]

  • Anyone with Telekinesis or who can otherwise speed her up, increases her reliability and usefulness.
  • Espionage clearly aids other units, and is discussed in tips and tricks below.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • As more of a solo support piece her combat ability is very limited. She may knock off a support model or two herself behind enemy lines if she doesn't do much else.
  • While her DEF is reasonable, if almost anything does hits her, she will probably die, even blast damage will likely remove all her boxes.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • Ambush - just the threat of this sometimes can help control the board There will be times however it will seem to have little benefit.
  • Espionage is perhaps the key reason you take her
    • With gunlines is can be used to move your models back out of charge range after shooting.
    • With fast flanking forces (such as cavalry) it can add a devastating extra distance for models to get into position to kill support lurking behind the front lines, or even threaten the enemy caster.
    • With mainline infantry it may help get them into position to make a strong alpha strike. But this is probably the hardest to engineer reliably.
  • Intelligence If nothing else she is giving you better odds on the starting roll. So don't worry overly if she dies and does nothing but stop a bullet.

Changes from Mk2[edit]

  • Lost a point of DEF.
  • Lost 2 points of ARM.
  • POW of the throwing knives went up, well actually remained the same, she used to have a rule where you could add her STR to the POW of the thrown weapon, now they just add it in up front. Far less confusing.
  • She effectively became cheaper.
  • Ambush now has to be completely within a narrow strip of board edge, not just within. She loses a couple of inches threat (i.e. about 1" from either board edge).
  • Espionage Now only allows an additional movement, not an additional movement and attack.
  • Gained Backstab.

Overall she lost some of her potency and survivabilty, though she was always rather 'squishy', but she became a little cheaper.
