- Snare Gun - Short range, no damage.
- Gun Blade - Medium range, average P+S.
- Warlock - All warlocks come with a stack of standard special rules - most notably being awesome.
- Pathfinder - This model treats rough terrain as open terrain while advancing. While charging, slam power attacking, or trample power attacking, this model does not stop its movement when it contacts an obstacle.
- 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.
- Take Down - Models killed in melee by this model cannot use Tough and are RFP'd.
- True Sight - This model ignores clouds for LOS, and ignores Stealth always.
- Mantrap - High cost, average POW, large AoE - Any warrior models hit suffer knockdown.
- Marked for Death - Low cost, medium range offensive upkeep. Affected model/unit suffers a penalty to DEF and loses Incorporeal and Stealth and can never have either while affected.
- Return Fire - Cheap spell that lets a friendly Faction model make a free attack after an enemy targets them with a ranged attack. It expires as soon as it is used, or after one round.
- Weald Secrets - Upkeep spell Target friendly faction model/unit gains Pathfinder and Hunter. (Hunter - This model ignores cover and concealment when shooting.)

Thoughts on Grim Angus
Grim Angus in a nutshell
Grim Angus was a really effective warlock in Mk2, with a hard control feat that made infantry easy to annihilate, and some useful infantry buffs. He's little changed - but the metagame is changed around him.
Thoughts on when & how to use feat and spells
Grim's feat has an offensive and a defensive component. The offensive to lower the enemy's DEF, making them easier to hit and the defensive to lower enemy Speed, making it harder for them to get to you. Use it either to get the alpha strike or to make sure you hit if you have it.
- If Grim is far enough forward for either Mantrap or especially Marked For Death he is probably too far forward to survive return fire although both might deal with enemy skirmishers.
Typical Army & Strategy
His main win condition is to get the alpha strike and beat down the enemy.
Things you take in his army to help him with this strategy is the Krielstone of course. And then a generic army.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- Two offensive spells on his card with no range amplifier and no way of channeling.
- No damage buffs
- Bait the Line on Headhunter does at least extend your threat range.
Tricks & Tips
Comparison to Mk2
Very few changes other than that his feat used to prevent charges - but the metagame changed around him.
