Croak Hunter

Minion Croak Solo

Some few anuras, a frog-like race commonly called “croaks” for their distinctive throaty calls, have made their way from the Shattered Spine Islands to chase both prey and adventure. The scouts and explorers known as hunters have developed a strong relationship with the gatormen of the Blindwater Congregation and will not hesitate to take up arms alongside these newfound allies. Croak hunters stalk their enemies from hidden positions before attacking them with spears dipped in deadly mixtures of natural poisons, including the toxins secreted by their own skin.

  • Hunter - This model ignores cover and concealment when shooting.
  • Reposition [3"] - At the end of an activation in which it did not run or fail a charge, this model can advance up to 3", then its activation ends.
  • Stealth - Ranged and magic attacks targeting this model from a point of origin greater than 5˝ away automatically miss. This model is not an intervening model when determining line of sight from a model more than 5˝ away.
  • Quick Work - When this model destroys one or more enemies with a melee attack during its Combat Action, immediately afterwards it can make a free basic ranged attack.

Croak Hunter in a nutshell[edit]

The Croak Hunter is a useful quick-working skirmisher with a potential threat range of 17" (although don't rely on this), and who can hit warbeasts as hard as Maximus on a good day.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • He's a jack of all trades - but only really specialises in light warbeast hunting rather than some of his main faction rivals (especially the Reeve Hunter)).
  • His anti-infantry game simply doesn't kill enough to make him worthwhile against infantry - and he doesn't have the hit points to not get swatted.
