Minion Gatorman Heavy Warbeast

The ironback spitter is a reptilian monstrosity from the deepest reaches of western Immoren’s swamps and marshes. A towering, turtle-like creature, the ironback is armed with a fearsome beak and two mighty claws, each capable of rending flesh, bone, and even steel. Its most dangerous attack, however, is a blast of corrosive venom that can reduce enemies to bubbling pools of noxious slime in a matter of seconds.

Weapons[edit]

  • Spit Blast - Range 12, POW 14, AoE 4, ranged weapon.
    • Damage Type: Corrosion - This weapon does corrosion damage.
    • Continuous Corrosion - A model hit by this attack suffers continuous corrosion, which has a chance of doing a single point of damage each turn.
  • Bite - Range 1, 15 P+S melee weapon. A respectable backup!
  • Claw (x2) - Range 1, 13 P+S melee weapons. Very low P+S for a heavy.

Abilities[edit]

  • Warbeast - All warbeasts share a huge stack of special rules. The short version is they're big, furious, and beat stuff up pretty good.
  • Amphibious - This model treats shallow water as open terrain while advancing. While completely in shallow water, this model gains concealment and does not block line of sight.
  • Carapace - This model gains +4 ARM vs. ranged attacks and free strikes.
  • Retaliatory Strike - Once per turn when an enemy hits this model in melee, it can hit back. Once.

Animus[edit]

Counterblast - Cost 2 (★)

When an enemy model advances and ends its movement within the caster's CMD range, the caster can make one basic melee or ranged attack targeting that model, then Counterblast expires. Counterblast lasts for one round.
(★) Changed to Cost 1 in CID, but that isn't finalised yet.

Recent Changes[edit]

Cost reduced by 1 point.


Analysis of Ironback Spitter[edit]

Ironback Spitter in a nutshell[edit]

The Ironback Spitter is a solid ranged heavy. A medium AoE doing continuous corrosion gives it a good game against infantry while against heavies it has a solid POW - and a Carapace to deal with return fire.
