Farrow Razorback Crew

Minion Farrow Unit

The farrow have recently made vast improvements in their military arms and have managed to construct a number of powerful weapons based on similar designs employed by other fighting forces. The razorback, a crude but effective rocket launcher, is one of the most potent of these weapons, and its explosive introduction onto the battlefields of western Immoren has resulted in more than a few shocking victories for the farrow.

Weapons and Attacks[edit]

Gunner[edit]

  • Razorback - An artillery piece with range 14, POW 14 and small AoE.
    • Buckler - This 'weapon' has an integral buckler that gives the model a cumulative +1 ARM bonus. The bonus doesn't apply if the weapon is crippled or if the damage originates in your back arc.
    • Brutal Damage - On a direct hit, gain an additional die on this weapon's damage rolls against the target directly hit.
  • Club - Short range POW 10 backup melee weapon.

Grunt[edit]

  • Pig Iron - A cheap rifle - Range 10, POW 12.
  • Club - The same backup weapon the gunner carries.

Special Abilities[edit]

  • Minion - will work for Circle, Legion, Skorne, Trollbloods
  • Advance Deployment - Models with advance deployment are placed after normal deployment and may be placed up to 6" further forward.
  • Tough - When this model is disabled, roll a d6. On a 5 or 6, remove 1 damage point from this model; it is no longer disabled and becomes knocked down. While knocked down this model loses Tough.
  • Reposition [_"] - At the end of an activation in which it did not run or fail a charge, this model can advance up to _", then its activation ends.

Gunner Only[edit]

  • Officer - This model is the unit commander even if the unit has a Leader model.
  • Man-Sized - This model is on a large base, but is treated as being on a small one.
  • Mobile Artillery - When this model moves, it gains 1" additional movement for each Grunt nearby.
  • Take Up - If this model is killed you may instead remove a Grunt within 1". Remove any effects on this model, and apply any effects that were on the old grunt.

Farrow Razorback Crew in a nutshell[edit]

Hit and run artillery with a surprising punch - and only limited accuracy.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • Bloody Barnabas - Knockdown lets them land their powerful hits
  • Carver1 - Veteran Leader helps them hit
  • Splatter Boar - Animus gives additional RAT and reposition on scatter making this unit very accurate.
  • You can get them free in The Thornfall Alliance or pay for them and get towards getting another model for free.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • Like all artillery it's brittle and incoming fire has right of way
  • Small AoEs don't kill that much.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • Reposition to hide behind solid objects

Comparison to Mk2[edit]

Like almost all artillery it's been vastly improved - the ability to move and shoot on its own would ensure that. And it's had more buffs than just that. It did, however, lose the ability to "Dig In."
