Bloody Barnabas
Minion Gatorman Warlock

Bloody Barnabas is an aged gatorman warlock and a veteran of countless battles. In the wilds of western Immoren, only a gator of surpassing strength and tenacity could hope to reach his level of combat expertise. Barnabas calls upon the great warbeasts of the swamps to combat his foes, and he directs their attacks with cunning precision. Before his hungry children swarm, Barnabas summons a magical black tide to choke the enemies of the congregation, leaving them vulnerable.

Weapons[edit]

  • Bite - 0.5" reach, P+S 14 melee attack.
  • Bone Cleaver - 2" reach, P+S 15 melee attack.
    • Damage Type: Magical - This weapon can damage incorporeal models.
    • Blood Boon - If this weapon kills an enemy, this model can cast a spell of COST 3 or less for free. Blood Boon can only trigger once per activation.

Abilities[edit]

  • Minion - In a 2+ warlock game, he can work as a Skorne minion, Legion of Everblight Minion, Circle Orboros minion, or Trollblood minion.
  • Warlock - All warlocks come with a stack of standard special rules - most notably being awesome.
  • Gatorman Warlock - This model's battlegroup must contain only minion Gatorman warbeasts.
  • Amphibious - This model treats shallow water as open terrain while advancing. While completely in shallow water, this model gains concealment and does not block line of sight.
  • Tough - When this model is disabled, roll a d6. On a 5 or 6, remove 1 damage point from this model; it is no longer disabled and becomes knocked down. While knocked down this model loses Tough.
  • Countercharge - When an enemy model advances and ends its movement within 6" of this model and in its LOS, this model can immediately charge it. This model can use Countercharge only once per round and not while engaged.
  • Unyielding - This model gains +2 ARM against melee damage rolls.
    This rule changed in 2018.01

Spells[edit]

Target friendly Faction unit gains +2 MAT and Vengeance. (Vengeance - During your Maintenance Phase, if one or more models in a unit with Vengeance were damaged by enemy attacks during the last round, each model in the unit can advance 3" and make one basic melee attack.)
If this spell damages a living enemy model, either Barnabas or a living warbeast in his battlegroup and control range can then heal d3 hitpoints.
Place a 5" AOE anywhere completely within Barnabas' CTRL range where it does not touch a model's base. The AOE is shallow water. While completely within the AOE, models with Amphibious cannot be targeted by ranged attacks.
Each time a friendly Faction model in the caster's control range destroys one or more enemy models with an attack during their activations, a warbeast in the caster's battlegroup and in control range may advance up to 3". Each warbeast can only move once per turn.

Feat: Black Tide[edit]

Enemy models without Amphibious currently in his CTRL range become knocked down.


Analysis of Bloody Barnabas[edit]

Bloody Barnabas in a nutshell[edit]

Barnabas is a well-rounded warlock with an excellent Pop & Drop feat which is normally followed up by volleys of shooting that only misses on snake eyes. He is strong in melee and can protect his army from shooting with a Swamp Pit while getting his warbeasts into interesting places via Warpath. Unfortunately he's probably the least popular warlock in the faction since the Blindwater CID because he doesn't have a damage buff and although he's a solid toolbox warlock Rask is an exceptional toolbox.

Thoughts on his feat and spells[edit]

Feat - All Fall Down! Except steady models, flying models, huge based models, and maybe a few others. It flattens the DEF of all its victims (which can be devastating to infantry if you have ranged firepower, and can lead to assassinations) - and keeps melee infantry out for the next turn while forcing beasts and jacks to shake.

  • Death March - a Mat buff is cool. Vengeance is excellent.
  • Warpath - cast on your first turn and just upkeep for the rest of the game. Mobility and flexibility.
  • Swamp Pit - that's either blocking shooting (but not charges) if you group up or 5" of AoE. Either way it's an excellent spell in the early parts of the game
  • Flesh Eater Zap. It's an expensive zap with a not especially good effect that the Gatorman Soul Slave can't exploit, but it kills incorporeal enemies.

Typical Army & Strategy[edit]

Strategy[edit]

Barnabas wins fights through strategically applied pressure, not sheer brute force.

Barnabas's boasts a solid toolbox, but due to his lack of innate armor cracking abilities, will see him best served aiming for victory by scenario or assassination. Usually you'll want to avoid the enemy heavy jacks/beasts and work your way through the enemy infantry, picking at key supporting models as you go. It may be tempting to throw your heavy warbeasts right into the foe's own jacks/beasts, but keeping them back until the mid to late game will give you more options once holes in the opponent's lines start to open up. This will also discourage your opponent from throwing said warnouns directly at Barnabas, who is very vulnerable to them.

Black Tide is a strong psychological weapon: anyone who knows about it will be anticipating it, and you can use this to bully them into playing defense. Once it's gone, so is a fair chunk of your leverage. You're not helpless without it, but wasting it will hurt you. More experienced opponents will try to force Barnabas to feat defensively- Black Tide isn't essential to winning, but you want to play it offensively.

That said, don't let it's potential overshadow Warpath and Death March. These two upkeeps give Barnabas' forces a deceptive degree of mobility that will give you the means to play the feat to maximum effect.

Theme thoughts[edit]

If you're going to pick a theme with Barnabas, Theme - The Blindwater Congregation is the way to go. Barney B's toolbox of spells, abilities and feat demand a mixed group of infantry and warbeasts. You won't be maxing out on troops as a result, but Barnabas wants at least 1 gatorman posse for screening, so you may as well get that extra mileage out of the theme benefits. 8 boxes, snacking, prayers and Death March on top mean your gatormen will cut their way through most infantry. Extended deployment will bump up your Advanced-Deploying ranged skirmishers like Croak Raiders and Longchops(who you can get for free here) even further and guarantee them an advantageous position for his feat or harass any enemy units looking to get an early go at the scenario objectives.

Army[edit]

Shooting-centric because you generally get to kill a much wider swathe of the enemy's army on feat turn, thanks to the near inability to miss.

  • Swamp Horror - in Will Work For Food the Swamp Horror gets to play Pac-Man on feat turn. Warpath, Chain Strike, Overtake, and auto-hitting knocked down targets.
  • Blackhide Wrastler Because nothing else he brings is going to break armor.
  • Bull Snapper - Spiny Growth is 2 ARM for 1 Fury which is starting to let him play forward.
  • Ironback Spitter - His best shooting beast.
  • Croak Raiders - Burn, baby, burn. Excellent shooters.
  • Cylena Raefyll & Nyss Hunters Decent shooters who can also melee.
  • Farrow Brigands Decent shooters who get Prey thanks to the Warlord.
  • Gatorman Posse - in The Blindwater Congregation Death March gives them some of the speed they like.
  • Targ can give an Ironback Spitter two ranged blasts per turn. That's a lot of pain on feat turn. Targ is also 1 point cheaper than the Gatorman Soul Slave, which Barnabas really doesn't need anyway since he's not really fury hungry outside of casting upkeeps on turn 1.

Drawbacks and Downsides[edit]

  • He does little to break armor.
  • Enemy heavies just shake his knockdown, and lowering their DEF is not dealing with the hard part. So his feat is more of an anti-infantry feat.
  • Rask also has a speed buff, protection from shooting, and helps you hit better. He also hands out Pathfinder, gets rid of upkeeps, and has a cloudwall.
  • Calaban the Gravewalker also has some anti-shooting tech, a MAT buff, and some anti-infantry tech including an anti-infantry feat. He also has Parasite, and a lot of Remove from Play effects.
  • Blood Boon is a neat ability, but Barnabas' spells really can't capitalize on it much- it'll be about the only time you have a justification to cast Flesh Eater, but that's not saying much.

Tricks and Tips[edit]

  • Watch for any chance to pull off a Pop & Drop assassination by flattening the caster and then shooting them while they are at DEF 5. This mostly gets newbies.
  • He also has a countercharge into charge assassination

Rules Clarifications[edit]

RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Consume      (Edit)

  • Consume triggers on all hits, not just direct ones. So if you trigger Consume on an AOE weapon (such as Hyperion) it will RFP every model in the AOE. (Infernal Ruling)
RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification:  : Magical Damage      (Edit)
(Click Expand to read)

* The "Damage Type: Magical" is not inherited by "secondary" damage from a weapon. That is, stuff like arcs (Electro Leap) or hazards (Scather). (Infernal Ruling)
  • All spells have "Damage Type: Magical" (refer errata).
    • This is inherited by "immediate" secondary damage (such as Eruption of Spines). (Infernal Ruling)
    • and might be inherited by "lingering" secondary damage (see below).
  • If a spell leaves a template in play that does damage to models that walk around in it, then:
    • if it is not described as a hazard it will do magical damage to models that walk around in it. (Example: Razor Wall)
    • if it is a hazard then it will not do magical damage to models that walk around in it. Instead, it does whatever damage type is specified by the spell description. (Example: Breath of Corruption).
    • (Infernal Ruling)
  • If a weapon/spell includes Magic Damage and another kind of elemental damage it will still damage Incorporeal models. Incorporeal models are not affected by the rule "if an attack does multiple types of damage and a model is immune to at least one it is immune to the entire attack."
    The phrase "immune to non-magical damage" should be interpreted as "immune to damage that doesn't include Damage Type: Magical" (not interpreted as "has immunity to Corrosion and Electricity and Cold and etc.")
RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Blood Boon and/or Rites of Blood     (Edit)

  • Blood Boon doesn't interact with abilities that change the COST of a spell. (Infernal Ruling)
    • For instance, if you trigger Blood Boon while being affected by Lamentation then you can still cast a COST 3 spell (even though if you spent focus to do the same thing it would cost you 6 focus).
  • (Rites of Blood only): The Priestess doesn't need to be in the caster's CTRL area to use her ability.


RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification:  : Warlock      (Edit)
(Click Expand to read)

 
  • General
    • FURY (uppercase) is the stat printed on the warlock's card. Fury (lowercase) refers to fury points a model currently has.
    • Your CTRL area is double your FURY stat, not double your fury points. (Infernal Ruling)
    • Casting spells or using feats is an anytime ability with the added restriction that you can't use them on the same turn you run even before you run.
      • See also the clarifications on Any Time abilities (below).
    • Some warlocks are also Battle Engines and thus follow all the Battle Engine special rules.
      There is no particular interaction between the Battle Engine rules and the Warlock rules.
  • Reaving & Leeching
    • If you choose to Reave, it's all or nothing. You must Reave all the Fury (up to your limit) and you can't choose to "let some disappear". (Locked thread)
    • If your warbeast is Removed From Play, you can still reave fury off it. (Locked thread)
    • If your warbeast is destroyed or RFP'd while under your opponent's control then:
      1. You cannot reave fury off it. Because it is still enemy at the time it was destroyed/RFP'd, and you can't reave from enemy warbeasts.
      2. After it is taken off the table, it returns to your control and is eligible for Spirit Bond and (possibly) Return to Play stuff (like Thagrosh1's feat).
  • Transferring Damage
    • If both the warlock and the warbeast are damaged by the same attack (such as an AOE), then you need to apply the 'normal' damage to the warbeast before the transferred damage. This distinction can be important when you're working out who/what actually destroyed the beast. (Infernal Ruling)
Restrictions on "Any Time" abilities     (Edit)      
  • "Any Time" abilities can be used at any time during a model/unit's activation, except:
    1. The model with the Any Time ability has had their activation end "prematurely". By this I mean you resolve anything which includes "its activation ends". Examples include:
      • Running, failing a charge, or failing a slam.
      • Abilities that include "then its activation ends" (such as Reposition and Teleport).
    2. In between declaring your charge target and making your charge movement. (Infernal Ruling)
    3. In between completing your charge movement and determining whether it was a successful charge. (Infernal Ruling)
    4. You're in the middle of moving. (Note: Impact Attacks count as being in the middle of movement).
    5. You're in the middle of an attack. Note that the attack is not over until you finish step 14 of the attack sequence (Apdx A).
    6. Your opponent interrupted your activation to trigger one of their own abilities, such as Countercharge.
  • In general you can use "Any Time" abilities while you're knocked down or stationary (except Spells and Feats which specify you can't).
  • If you have a gun with a random ROF, you can use an "Any Time" ability inbetween rolling the number of shots and actually making the first attack. (Infernal Ruling)
  • Units with "Any Time" abilities
    • Even if the ability says "any time during the unit's activation", a model in a unit can't use an Any Time ability if they run, fail a charge, or use an ability like Reposition.
    • Because that model's activation has ended (even if the unit's activation is still ongoing) and you can't use abilities on models that are not active.
    • So, for example:
      • You cannot use a minifeat after the Officer runs. (Infernal Ruling)
      • You cannot use a minifeat after anyone in the unit has begun a Reposition move. (Infernal Ruling)
  • Warcaster/Warlock Cavalry ( Edit )
    • Warcasters/Warlocks can't cast spells or use their feat while resolving Impact Attacks. Because Impact Attacks occur during movement - you can use spells or feat before moving, or after moving, but not during movement.
      • Exception: If your Impact target(s) include your charge target, then your movement has ended (refer rulebook, last paragraph of 'Impact Attacks') and thus you're fine to use "any time" abilities before starting the Impact attacks.

Rules Clarification : Warcaster Unit or Warlock Unit     (Edit)
This summary is specific to Warcaster/Warlock units. You may also want to check the Warcasters & Warlocks page for the 'regular' rules clarifications.

  • If you're giving an order, it must be done first, before casting any spells or using your feat.
  • All models in the unit count as part of the battlegroup. So, for instance, Butcher3's argus can be moved via his Energizer spell.
  • Only the warcaster/warlock model can dominate a Steam Roller scenario. They can do that regardless of where the grunts are.
  • The grunt models can contest Steam Roller scenarios, but not control them.
  • Warcaster units can have attachments. They can even attach units (such as the WSC). (Infernal Ruling)
  • Units Buying Attacks (Edit)
    • If you make attacks with model [A], then start making attacks with model [B], you cannot 'go back' and buy more attacks with [A]. Because:
    • A model can only buy additional attacks during its Combat Action.
    • A model in a unit must complete its Combat Action before the next model starts theirs (with some exceptions, like CMA).
RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Unit of Warcasters or Warlocks     (Edit)

  • Even though they're warcasters, if they're out of formation they suffer the normal penalties (can't make attacks, actions, spells, etc).
  • They can't upkeep each other's spells.
  • They can only dominate one SteamRoller scenario element at a time.
  • Each warlock/warcaster can have different upkeeps on them if those upkeeps are "target SELF" or "target model". If you cast an upkeep that is "target model/unit", that is the only upkeep any of them can have.
  • Units Buying Attacks (Edit)
    • If you make attacks with model [A], then start making attacks with model [B], you cannot 'go back' and buy more attacks with [A]. Because:
    • A model can only buy additional attacks during its Combat Action.
    • A model in a unit must complete its Combat Action before the next model starts theirs (with some exceptions, like CMA).
  • The Legion Twins
    • Rhyas cannot dominate a zone while out of formation.
    • Rhyas can use the feat while out of formation.
  • Haley3
    • Only Haley Prime is an 'actual' warcaster model, and as such she is the only one that can dominate a scenario element.
    • The echoes can Control/Contest scenarios like a normal unit.
    • Haley Prime can dominate an element even if the echoes are out of formation.

Rules Clarification:  : Countercharge      (Edit)
(Click Expand to read)

Triggering Countercharge
  • You can trigger Countercharge if you're engaging, but not engaged.
  • What does trigger Countercharge
    • Countercharge triggers off any advance, not just in-activation stuff.
    • You can trigger Countercharge during your own turn, if your opponent has an ability to move during your turn (such as Admonition).
    • Standing still but changing facing is an advance.
  • What doesn't trigger Countercharge
    • Aiming, or forfeiting your movement, is not advancing.
    • If a model doesn't move, doesn't change facing, doesn't aim ... does nothing but skips straight ahead to its Combat Action, this is not an advance. (Infernal Ruling)
    • Being placed (such as Teleport) is not an advance.
    • Involuntary movement (being slammed, thrown, or pushed) is not an advance.
  • Even when an entire unit is moving, countercharge is triggered per model. So you can countercharge after any models of the unit had finished his move within range, but you can only countercharge the model who finished its movement. You can't "save it" until the unit finishes moving and then say "I'm going to Countercharge the first guy you moved."

What can your opponent do?

  • Once you trigger countercharge, your opponent cannot use a "Any Time" ability until the countercharge is fully resolved. Even though it's their turn.
  • They can trigger their own abilities from your movement (such as Admonition) and/or your attack (such as Shock Field).

Attacks & Boosting

  • You only get one attack when making a countercharge, regardless of how many initials you normally have.
  • You can't spend fury/focus to boost it, or buy additional attacks afterwards. Because you're only allowed to do spend fury/focus during your own activation.
  • The charge attack damage is only boosted if the Countercharger moved 3" or more, as with a regular charge.

After the Countercharge

  • You cannot use any abilities that trigger on "during activation" or "during combat action" (such as Sprint) after a Countercharge, as Counter Charge is not an activation. (Locked thread)

Enemy "Skipping" their movement

  • If your opponent 'forgets' to move their model and didn't declare they're forfeiting movement (they just said "I'm activating this model and making an attack") then do they count as moving or not?
  • Technically the rules don't have a default condition for this, and it becomes a Sportsmanship issue for you to sort out with your opponent.
  • However, the Judges document (which is used to run all official PP events) states that the model officially counts as "Advancing 0 inches" and thus will trigger Counter Charge. Most players follow the Judges document for casual play as well.

Unit with countercharge

  • This applies to Zaadesh2 with Scarab Packs
  • Each model in the unit has its own individual countercharge. They don't have to all countercharge at the same time, and only the specific model within 6" of the trigger will be able to countercharge.
  • If a model is out of formation, it won't be able to countercharge (since it is unable to move out of his normal movement).
  • If a model starts in formation but the countercharge movement takes it out of formation, it won't be able to make the charge attack (but will engage).
  • If several models in the same unit want to countercharge the same model, you fully resolve the counter charge of the first, including the attack, before starting the counter charge of the other(s).
  • If the unit commander countercharges such that the other models become out of formation, they immediately lose the ability to trigger countercharge (because out-of-formation models can't move).

Other interactions

  • Since Countercharge isn't an actual activation, you can't trigger in-activation stuff like Sprint or Quick Work.
    • Exception: Very rarely you can trigger Countercharge during your own activation. For instance your opponent triggers Admonition to try and move away.
  • Countercharge vs. Admonition (etc) ( Edit )
    • You can trigger Countercharge during your own activation - if a model with Admonition (or similar) uses it to (try to) move away.
      • You move, they trigger admonition and move, you trigger countercharge off their admonition-move.
    • In this scenario you may boost Countercharge attacks and trigger only-during-activation effects (such as Critical Shred & Sustained Attack) exactly as if you were in your activation (because you are).
    • Also, you can potentially get two charge attacks (one for your normal charge, one for the counter charge).
  • Countercharge plus Admonition
    • If a model has both CC and Admonition, it can trigger both at the same time. A model moves nearby, it admonitions away, then countercharges back in.
  • Countercharge vs Slipstream ( Edit )
    • Both these abilities trigger at the same time (end of movement). The active player then resolved his first.
    • This can let the Slipstream model place something to block the Countercharge model.
  • Assault vs Countercharge ( Edit )
    • With reference to the Activation Timing (Apdx A), Countercharge occurs at Step 5, and Assault occurs at Step 5 for independent models and Step 6 for units. (Infernal Ruling about the Step 6)
    • So, if a model with Assault finishes its charge movement within range of a model with Countercharge then...
      • If it's an independent model then you need to resolve the Assault shot before making the Countercharge move. This is because both abilities occur at the same time but active player effects are resolved first.
      • But if it's a model belonging to a unit, then you need to resolve the Countercharge immediately, then finish moving the rest of the unit, then start Assault shots.
  • Countercharge & Cavalry ( Edit )
    • A model with Countercharge and Cavalry can make Impact Attacks during the countercharge. (Refer "Charges Outside of Activation" in the rulebook).

Rules Clarification : Death March      (Edit)

  • This spell cannot be cast on independent models, only on units.
RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Vengeance and/or Righteous Vengeance and/or Retaliation and/or Swift Vengeance and/or Tantrum     (Edit)

  • Vengeance moves do not have to be towards an enemy model.
  • You can choose to not move, but still get the attack. One is not conditional on the other.
  • When resolving Vengeance, move all models in the unit before making any attacks. (Infernal Ruling)
    • If you have more than one unit with Vengeance, move all of unit A then complete all of unit A's attacks, before starting to move unit B.
  • Vengeance is not an activation. It does not prevent the unit from activating and acting normally later in the turn.
  • Stationary and knocked down models may not perform Vengeance moves nor attacks.
  • Only enemy attacks trigger Vengeance. There are plenty of ways enemies can damage you without attacking you (such as Electro Leap) and these will not trigger Vengeance.
  • Due to the way it is worded Vengeance can be "inherited" by unit attachments that do not actually have the Vengeance ability themselves. For instance, a Soulless Escort attached to the Spears of Scyrah.
    • If anyone is damaged, including the attachment, everyone in the unit gets to trigger Vengeance.
    • But if everyone is killed except the attachment, then he doesn't get to trigger Vengeance because the rule is "no longer on the table".
