Bull Snapper

From Battle College
Jump to: navigation, search

Minion Gatorman Light Warbeast

Powerful gators with an insatiable hunger for human flesh, bull snappers are terrifying monsters that lurk beneath the still surface of swamplands held by the Blindwater Congregation. Surging up from the water, a bull snapper seizes its victim in jaws that close with the force of a colossal bear trap, ensuring its target cannot escape a bloody and painful demise.

Weapons[edit]

  • Bite - 0.5" reach, P+S 12 melee weapon
    • Sustained Attack - During this model's activation, when it makes an attack with this weapon against the last model hit by the weapon this activation, the attack automatically hits.

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.
  • Bloodthirst - This models gains a movement bonus when it charges a living model.
  • Man-Eater - May charge living warrior models for free.
  • Torpid - If a Bull Snapper destroys a living enemy model with a basic melee attack, it can immediately end its activation afterwards. If it does so, it can remove 1 fury point.

Animus[edit]

Spiny Growth - Cost 2 (★)

The caster gains +2 ARM. Also, if a non-warrior model hits the caster with a melee attack, the attacker suffers d3 damage points after the attack (unless the caster was destroyed or RFP'd by the attack). Spiny Growth lasts for one round.
(★) Changed to Cost 1 in CID, but that isn't finalised yet.

Recent Changes[edit]

2017.09 Blindwater CID

Torpid was reworded to be an optional ability, not a mandatory one.

Analysis of Bull Snapper[edit]

Bull Snapper in a nutshell[edit]

The Bull Snapper is a cheap warbeast that acts as a solo hunting cruise missile. Its animus will make your caster less squishy.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • Jaga-Jaga, the Death Charmer can give the Snapper a 13" charge against living targets, ignoring terrain if needed. Plus her Field Marshal gives it an extra attack if it dies.
  • The Bull Snapper is the third most expensive model that can be taken for free in The Blindwater Congregation and the other two are both solos; this is the current normal reason to take it.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • Awful defensive stats, but that's to be expected at that price bracket.
