Warrior models hit suffer knockdown.
Target model/unit suffers -2 DEF, loses Incorporeal and Stealth, and is unable to regain either while affected.
Target Friendly Faction model can make a free basic melee or ranged attack after an enemy targets them with a ranged attack and that attack resolves. It expires after the attack is resolved or after one round.
Target friendly Faction model/unit gains Pathfinder and Hunter. (Hunter - This model ignores cover and concealment when shooting.)

Feat: Spread the Net[edit]

Thoughts on Grim Angus[edit]

Grim Angus in a nutshell[edit]

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, and not to his benefit.

Thoughts on when & how to use feat and spells[edit]


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 SPD, 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[edit]


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[edit]

  • 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[edit]


Comparison to Mk2[edit]

Very few changes other than that his feat used to prevent charges - but the metagame changed around him.
