Gudrun the Wanderer
Mercenary Minion Ogrun Character Solo

Disgraced, exiled, and cursed to live when he wishes to die, Gudrun often seems too drunk to fight as he once did. All such doubt vanishes when he steps into battle. His comrades describe him fighting as if inviting death. He screams incoherent battle cries while the lives his polearm ends add a steadily rising tally of carnage to the weight of his soul.

Thoughts on Gudrun the Wanderer[edit]

Gudrun the Wanderer in a nutshell[edit]

Gudrun is a melee solo who can kill quite a few models if your opponent allows it. He also has some trick that keep him from getting killed by shooting. Because he's a melee solo, he usually attacks once per game if he's lucky, then dies quickly and you're out five points.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • He is well-served if Boomhowler is nearby to stand him up with Reveille.
  • Walk him to a flag and activate Binge Drinking to avoid being shot while scoring it.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • He can't shake. Once he's been knocked down once he's not likely to be able to attack at all.
  • Stiff competition from the cheaper and harder hitting Maximus in the Reach and Berserk stakes for all Minion factions.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • Absolutely nobody plays him, and nobody has every played against him ... so he might throw your opponent's plans into just enough disarray to win you a game before they get wise to the trick.

Rules Clarifications[edit]

Rules Clarification : Advance Deployment - None yet. (Edit)

Rules Clarification : Pathfinder      (Edit)

RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Berserk      (Edit)

  • Berserk grants an additional attack which by definition can only occur during your Combat Action. Therefore Berserk doesn't work on free strikes, impact attacks, etc.
  • If Berserk triggers at the same time as another "attack generating" ability (such as Black Spot), Berserk means you must make an attack. But it can be either a Berserk attack or the other one. (Infernal Ruling)
    In other words you can't say "I trigger both Berserk and Black Spot, I choose Black Spot, Black Spot is optional, so I'm not making any more attacks".
  • "Immediately" means you can't save it until later in your activation. Berserk must be resolved at step 14 of the attack sequence (refer Apdx A).
  • You cannot use "Any Time" abilities while resolving the original attack, the Berserk attack, or between the attacks. Refer Apdx A.
  • Berserk doesn't trigger during a frenzy. (Infernal Ruling)
  • Berserk will not trigger if the target uses an ability to move the damage to another model (such as a warlock transfer).
    • But it will trigger if they use an ability to move the attack to a different model (such as Grim Salvation).

Rules Clarification : Binge Drinking - None yet. (Edit)

Rules Clarification : Feign Death      (Edit)

  • "Cannot be targeted" is not the same as "cannot be hit". You can still be hit by AOEs, Sprays, etc that target someone else.
  • You cannot use Gunfighter vs models Feigning Death, because Gunfighter is still a ranged attack.
  • However, you can use Point Blank, because that lets the attacker make a melee attack with a ranged weapon.
