Mercenary, and Minion, and Retribution Partisan, Nyss Character Solo

Lanyssa was a prodigal sorceress who proved just as adept with the magic of her people as she did fighting with a claymore in hand. She feels both fortunate and guilty for having been away from her homeland during the cataclysm invoked by Thagrosh's rise. Now, after facing the horror that is the Legion of Everblight, she has vowed to spend her power to annihilate this enemy.

Thoughts on Lanyssa Ryssyl, Nyss Sorceress[edit]

Lanyssa Ryssyl, Nyss Sorceress in a nutshell[edit]

Lanyssa is is taken for her Hunter's Mark ability which is extremely powerful when running a lot of warjacks or beasts thanks to the free charge. Infantry charging farther never hurts either. She also brings a magic attack if needed.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • Any warbeast or warjack that doesn't charge for free.
  • If you can somehow catch a warbeast with flight or pathfinder on the other side of a forest, he Winter Storm ability just might work without her getting killed, but this won't happen often.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • Winter Storm is a trap! If the enemy starts near enough to Lanyssa that they get shut down by this then Lanyssa is in easy range to be killed - and she isn't that tough.
  • Positioning her is tricky. Too close to the front lines and she dies. Too far away and she can't use Hunter's Mark.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

Not much tricky about Hunter's Mark. It's best used with things that already go quite far to up the threat to extreme levels.

Rules Clarifications[edit]

Rules Clarification : Magical Damage      (Edit)

  • The "Damage Type: Magical" is not inherited by "secondary" damage from a weapon. That is, stuff like arcs (Electro Leap) or hazards (Scather). (Infernal Ruling)
  • All spells have "Damage Type: Magical" (refer errata).
    • This is inherited by "immediate" secondary damage (such as Eruption of Spines). (Infernal Ruling)
    • ... but not by "lingering" secondary damage (such as the cloud left by Breath of Corruption). In this case the hazard is damaging the model, not the spell that put the hazard into play.
  • If a weapon/spell includes Magic Damage and another kind of elemental damage it can still damage Incorporeal models. Incorporeal models are not affected by the rule "if an attack does multiple types of damage and a model is immune to at least one it is immune to the entire attack."
    The phrase "immune to non-magical damage" should be interpreted as "immune to damage that doesn't include Damage Type: Magical" (not interpreted as "has immunity to Corrosion and Electricity and Cold and etc.")

Rules Clarification : Freeze      (Edit)

  • Remember Stationary only prevents what it says it does. Refer the page on Stationary for a refresher.


Rules Clarification : Partisan      (Edit)

  • This model is normally "friendly faction" to other mercenary models. However, when taken in the Partisan faction it is "friendly faction" to that faction and not to any other mercenaries that are in that force.
    • For instance, if you take Gallant in a Mercenary force he is "friendly faction" to, say, Reinholdt. But if you take them both in a Cygnar force then Gallant counts as a Cygnar model and is no longer "friendly faction" to Reinholdt.
  • Partisan Warcasters can be taken in faction theme forces. Refer to the main rulebook.

Rules Clarification : Animosity      (Edit)

  • When using the Specialist or ADR rules in a Steamroller format, your entire list and the specialists must be a single legally fieldable force (even though you're not fielding it all at once).

Rules Clarification : Cold - None yet. (Edit)

Rules Clarification : Pathfinder      (Edit)

Rules Clarification : Prowl      (Edit)

  • You can still benefit from Prowl even if the attacker "ignores concealment".
    Because even though they ignore it that doesn't change the fact that you have it, and all you need to do is have it in order to get Prowl.

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 : Vendetta      (Edit)

  • Placeholder

Rules Clarification : Magic Ability      (Edit)

  • Almost every magic ability cannot be used on the same turn you charge. Because a charge must (almost always) be followed by a melee attack.
  • Using a Magic Ability counts as a spell, for effects such as Spell Ward, Witch Hunter, etc.
  • Unlike with warcasters/warlocks, using a Magic Ability is not an "any time" ability. This means:
    • You must complete your movement before you use a MA.
    • You cannot make ranged or melee attacks on the same turn you use a MA.
    • You cannot use a MA on the same turn you charge.
    • (Unless, of course, the rules for the specific MA you're using say you can.)

Rules Clarification : Hunter's Mark - None yet. (Edit)

Rules Clarification : Ice Bolt      (Edit)

Rules Clarification : Cold - None yet. (Edit)
