Mercenary Minion Character Unit

Since their mentor’s withdrawal from such pursuits, Lynus Wesselbaum and Edrea Lloryrr have taken the lead in cataloging the wonders of Caen in place of the famous professor Viktor Pendrake. With a strong knack for survival and an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, they have already pursued countless dangerous expeditions and shared more than a few close calls, forging a strong friendship in the field. Lynus’ book smarts and sharp memory serve as an excellent complement to Edrea’s arcane gifts, and the pair has made a name for themselves in many academic circles.

Thoughts on Lynus Wesselbaum & Edrea Lloryrr[edit]

Lynus Wesselbaum & Edrea Lloryrr in a nutshell[edit]

Lynys and Edrea are a couple of cheap utility models. Edrea is obviously the more useful of the two - and she's mostly a way to get a cheap and true sighted magical attack into your army for hunting incorporeal or stealth models. Lynys' main interesting ability is his heal, and as soon as a mercenary warcaster or minion warlock comes out that uses their damage boxes the way the The Harbinger of Menoth or Morvahna the Dawnshadow does he's going to find his way into a lot of lists. Until then he has weak combat stats and his abilities are strictly niche.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • Any model with Grievous Wounds, especially Alten Ashley. If you can use Applied Knowledge on him, you can easily take out a Warbeast's Spirit and deny it the ability to do anything useful for at least a turn.
  • Any non battle engine War-noun would love Applied Knowledge, especially ones like Captain Kara Sloan with access to multiple attacks per activation.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • Other than Arcane Bolt they don't really do much.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

Changes from Mk2[edit]

Mk2 they were slightly more expensive, but Lynus could use an ability that allowed him to shoot and Edrea to make a magical attack and then shoot.
