Thoughts on Eilish Garrity, the Occultist
Eilish Garrity, the Occultist in a nutshell
Eilish provides Puppet Master and limited upkeep removal with a boosted POW 10 magic attack when needed. Because the range on his upkeep removal spell is only 5", it has limited offensive applications, but can sometimes get rid of that pesky Arcane Shield if your opponent is careless. More likely, you're taking him with a very specific target for Puppet Master in mind.
Combos & Synergies
He's worthy of consideration when you have models that can achieve particularly powerful critical effects. For example, Puppet Master on a Siege Crawler with Fire For Effect is a nearly 70% chance to trigger Stagger.
Anything that makes him move farther extends the threat of his upkeep removal. A caster that provides this might be another compelling reason to bring him.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- Eilish is not available for general purchase. He was given to people who subscribed to PP's magazine in 2017. So the only way to get him is to buy him 2nd hand (I think).
- His offensive output is quite poor for a 5 point model and he faces stiff competition from many other Mercenary solos.
Tricks & Tips
Use Drake Macbain's feat to make him unkillable, run him forward. Stand him up with Boomhowler if he is knocked down and have him use Unbinding as a mini-purification on all your opponent's upkeeps.
