Blind Walker

Jump to: navigation, search

Minion Gatorman Heavy Warbeast

Massive gators of voracious appetite, blackhide wrastlers easily drag the mightiest foes down to be shredded in a flurry of teeth and claws. Moreover, a bokor can subjugate and ritually alter a blackhide to create an even darker threat: a blind walker. The beast becomes a necromantic conduit—a mindless horror that lives only to obey its master’s commands.

Weapons[edit]

  • Claw (x2) - 1" reach, 14 P+S melee weapons.

Abilities[edit]

  • Warbeast - All warbeasts share a huge stack of special rules. The short version is they're big, furious, and beat stuff up pretty good.
  • 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.
  • Eyeless Sight - This model 1) ignores cloud effects when determining LOS, 2) always ignores concealment and Stealth, and 3) never suffers Blind.
  • Shield Guard - When a friendly model within 3" is directly hit by a non-spray ranged attack, this model can be directly hit instead.

Animus[edit]

Rites of Power - Cost 1

This model’s controller can channel spells through it. When a spell is channeled through it, this model immediately suffers d3 damage points. Rites of Power lasts for one turn.

Recent Changes[edit]

2017.09 Blindwater CID

Cost was reduced by 2 points

Analysis of Blind Walker[edit]

Blind Walker in a nutshell[edit]

This isn't a heavy warbeast. It's a combination Channeler/Shield Guard with a lot of damage boxes. You take it as support for those two abilities rather than for its combat potential (which is worse than some lights). Offensive spell-slinging support, but it's not much more expensive than one of Cygnar's Lancers

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • Calaban the Grave Walker The offensive spell slinger loves something to channel through
  • Maelok the Dreadbound Mortality and Venom are both excellent spells to channel and Maelok sends its already high ARM upwards on feat turn.
  • Blackhide Wrastler - it might have a low MAT but with two claws and three Fury it's still worth putting Rage on.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • Remember you can slam. Probably the best use of the offensive capabilities of the Blind Walker
