Thoughts on Extoller Soulward
Extoller Soulward in a nutshell
The Extoller Soulward is a cheap solo with two functions:
- Handing out Eyeless Sight
- A gun powerful enough to blow an entire aspect off a heavy warbeast in a single shot. Or shoot a solo straight through a wall.
At the cost of only two Venator Rievers that's excellent value.
Combos & Synergies
- Any cheap infantry - for that matter expensive infantry also power it up. It only needs three dead models.
- Supreme Aptimus Zaal can feed it souls
- Titan Cannoneer, Mammoth, or Aradus Sentinel - good shooting units really benefit from Eyeless Sight.
- Lord Tyrant Hexeris or Lord Arbiter Hexeris - channeling and Eyeless Sight is an awesome combination.
- Lord Assassin Morghoul to tag those stealth casters with Mortality.
Drawbacks and Downsides
- No game against constructs (including the entire Convergence of Cyriss)
- Slightly squishy solo
- Powering an Ancestral Guardian slightly is rarely worth an entire activation
Tricks and Tactics
- Extoller Soulwards should be a priority to take out because of the amount of damage to warbeasts they can do. Act accordingly.
Changes from Mk2
Cheaper - but no longer hands out souls to guardians for free
