Boil Master & Spirit Cauldron in a nutshell[edit]

A support unit for models who use corpses (like Barnabas, Lord of Blood or Gatorman Bokor & Bog Trog Swamp Shamblers). He also can be used as an expensive but reliable spot removal tool, with his boosted hand cannon that can push people toward him ; boosting to hit with base magic 7 mean he often have >50% odds of killing an engaged infantry model. And d6" of extra threat range is really nice utility.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • Released in Blindwater CID (2017.09)
