Thoughts on Boil Master & Spirit Cauldron
Boil Master & Spirit Cauldron in a nutshell
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.
Combos & Synergies
- The Boil Master is one of the free options for The Blindwater Congregation
- Barnabas, Lord of Blood wants one to keep him stocked with corpses.
- The Sacral Vault and the Spirit Cauldron between them work on a waste-not, want-not principle as one gets the corpses the other the souls.
- The Gatorman Bokor & Bog Trog Swamp Shamblers like extra corpses.
- Midas collects corpse tokens.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- Big and slow target for the enemy to shoot.
Tricks & Tips
- All three abilities are good - use whichever is appropriate.
- Released in Blindwater CID (2017.09)
- Ha! The "Master" is not the Officer!
