Mercenary Minion Character Unit

The bounty hunter team of Dannon Blythe and the trollkin known simply as "Bull" has gained infamy across the war-torn region for their ruthless determination and efficiency. Wielding an impressive arsenal, they often take the expedient route of delivering targets dead allowing them complete to twice as many jobs while avoiding the tedious hassle of handling live prisoners.

Blythe[edit]

  • Officer - This model is the unit commander even if the unit has a Leader model.
  • Gunfighter - This model can use its ranged weapons even while in melee, but when it does so it can only target models it's in melee with. It can even make ranged attacks after charging.
  • Granted: Prey - While this model is still alive and in formation all of the unit gains Prey. (Prey - Before the game starts (but after setting up) pick a model/unit in the enemy army. Gain +2 to hit and +2 damage against it - and if it dies pick another one to replace it.)
  • Take Down - Models killed in melee by this model cannot use Tough and are RFP'd.

Bull[edit]

  • Trollkin - Just look at him.
  • 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.
  • Rapid Strike - This model has an additional melee attack each activation.
  • Take Down - Models killed in melee by this model cannot use Tough and are RFP'd.

Thoughts on Dannon Blythe & Bull[edit]

Dannon Blythe & Bull in a nutshell[edit]

Blythe's the brains, Bull the brawn. And both are pretty good at what they do - especially if you pick some prey that they can hurt seriously and it's not worth the enemy really trying to hide to neuter the unit.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]
