Mercenary Llaelese Character Solo
Gorman was a student of alchemy held in very high regard by the Golden Crucible until he decided to defy his superiors and get involved in the fight to save Riversmet.

Thoughts on Gorman Di Wulfe, Rogue Alchemist
Gorman Di Wulfe, Rogue Alchemist in a nutshell
Gorman's a grenade thrower with multiple debuffing grenades. He helps you hit high DEF targets and hurt warjacks. He's one of the three Merc damage buffers alongside Ragman and Lady Aiyana & Master Holt.
Combos & Synergies
- Everyone likes either to hit or damage buffs. So he goes with everyone.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- Doesn't deal with Hordes ARM-skew, and has almost nothing against Legion warbeasts.
- Everyone who played Mk2 knows him backwards.
- Stealth defends him from getting shot early, but he must get really close to use his grenades. So don't expect him to survive for long after he throws his first bomb.
Tricks & Tips
- He can't miss a large target with rust or black oil from 5" away or a small one from 4". Maximum scattering rules.
- Originally released in Warmachine: Escalation (2004)
- The exclusive model Gorman di "Sea" Wulfe can be substituted for the stock model. This was an exclusive given to Press Gangers, and as such can be very hard to get.

Other Mercenary models
Rules Clarification : Attack Type and/or Arcane Savant (Edit)
- If you forget to declare your Attack Type before rolling the attack, and you and your opponent can't agree on a fair fix, then the Judge's Policy is that the first listed Attack Type is the one that will be used.
Rules Clarification : Black Oil (Edit)
Rules Clarification : Blind (Edit)
- Blind prevents magic attacks. However spell-casters, spell slaves, etc can still cast non-offensive spells.
Rules Clarification : Rust - None yet. (Edit)
Rules Clarification : Stealth (Edit)
- "Automatically missing" is not the same as "cannot be hit by".
- For instance, a stealth model can still be the target of an AOE attack and although it auto-misses, if the AOE deviates onto them they will get damaged.
Rules Clarification : Fire (Edit)
- Moving into "Shallow water" standard terrain does not cause continuous fire to expire. It's magic fire.
- You can always use non-standard terrain if you agree with your opponent before the game starts, however.
- A weapon can inflict continuous fire without itself being a fire damage weapon (for example, the Helio's fists). In this case, the attack can hurt models with Immunity:Fire it just won't apply the continuous effect.
Rules Clarification : Corrosion (Edit)
- A weapon can inflict continuous corrosion without itself being a corrosion damage weapon (for example, the Acidic Touch animus). In this case, the attack can hurt models with Immunity: Corrosion it just won't apply the continuous effect.
Rules Clarification : Alchemical Mask (Edit)
- "Gas effects" is undefined in the rules, so pretty much never comes into play.
- You don't ignore the damage from walking into hazardous clouds.
Rules Clarification : Smoke Bomb - None yet. (Edit)
