Thoughts on Lord Rockbottom[edit]

Lord Rockbottom in a nutshell[edit]

Rockbottom's coins really help the merc shooting game and frequently help the merc melee game. He's one of the support solos.

Combos and Synergies[edit]

He's a Privateer who supports Sea Dog units or models.

  • Sea Dog Pirates are the normal thing you take him with to make Pirates actually good. He gives them tough, lets them actually hit at range, and also gives them Overtake to use their second melee attack.
  • The Commodore Cannon & Crew love Money Shot, as does the Sea Dog Deck Gun.
  • The Devil's Shadow Mutineers love Money Shot as well as Pay Day.
  • Bloody Bradigan - this should not be plan A. But the Berserk and Overtake combination on a flanking weapon master can clear a lot of infantry. Mar from the Devil's Shadow can do the same.
  • Press Gangers enjoy Payday for setting up Gang opportunities. But this is again not plan A with him.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • He only has five coins and is very mediocre when they are gone. This is probably enough for two units at once.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • Keep him out of harms way until he's out of money.
