Mercenary Mage Hunter Solo

Eiryss has spent years cutting down humans who would profane Caen and her goddess with foul sorceries, but she has seen first-hand that the wars and magics of mankind threaten to destroy her people and her gods. Eiryss has returned to her lonely fight with renewed conviction and new tools to hunt and slay human spell-casters and their perverse machines.

Thoughts on Eiryss, Angel of Retribution[edit]

Eiryss, Angel of Retribution in a nutshell[edit]

This incarnation of Eiryss is more focused around killing spellcasting units and solos or breaking up buffed infantry than her threat to casters or warbeasts. Disruption still lets her annoy jacks, but with the volume of attacks she can put out on the charge she can quite easily knock out spell buffed basic troopers and soak resources from the caster in doing so. Witch Hunter ensures that nothing short of a warcaster will cast while close to her, forcing order of activation issues to keep her tied up.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • Assault is awesome on her - with a potential threat range of 22", once you get LOS on the target, send a bow into it from afar.

Drawbacks and Downsides[edit]

  • Low armour ensures that if you can land a charge on her she will die, and is potentially vulnerable to blast damage.
  • Spell Breaker and Purgation on the Crossbow have some Skornergy with each other - as the former strips off the upkeep on a hit, the latter won't get the extra die on damage. Of course, your enemy can choose to keep the spell in play for D3 damage, AND the target to suffer +1D6 damage, but it will rarely happen.
  • For most casters the only damage box that matters is the last one. They will simply take the Spell Breaker damage and shrug. However, casters with few HP, like Cygnar's Journeymen, will think twice before upkeeping the spells.
  • She costs as much as a Buccaneer and is nowhere near as resilient as a warjack.

Tricks and Tactics[edit]

  • Spell Breaker works on your own units too; in dire need you can shoot your own model to remove a pesky enemy upkeep.
  • Spell Breaker only removes enemy upkeeps on a target model, so feel free to cast yours (like Rebuke), it will remain on them.
  • For merely killing enhanced troops at range, Harlan Versh is a cheaper solution, but for hunting and de-buffing high priority targets, Eiryss is better.

Changes from Mk2[edit]

Some said in Mk2, that Eiryss2 went to a list before the caster. With the possibility to nullify one (or in better case, more) jacks with Technological Interference, along with the focus-stripping Arcane Interference it was very close to the truth.

  • Upkeep removal is now situational, and can't focus strip, but gained with personal damage potential and anti magic. Do not think of her as filling anywhere close to the same function as before, but more like Harlan Versh.
  • Gained a MAT
  • Lost Technological Interference
  • Lost Sniper
  • Gained Reposition

Rules Clarifications[edit]

Trivia[edit]

  • Global warming across Immoren has led to Eiryss2 wearing less clothes and showing off her midriff and chest.
