Mercenary Llaelese Trencher Solo

A natural survivor and ruthless pragmatist, the man known as Gibbs is as capable on the battlefield as any professional soldier. As a cook in a Cygnaran trencher company, Gibbs was stranded behind enemy lines and was forced to adapt to survive. Wearing the uniform of a dead officer, he introduced himself not as a cook but as Trencher Major Harrison Gibbs and has become a vital member of the Llaelese Resistance.

Thoughts on Major Harrison Gibbs[edit]

Major Harrison Gibbs in a nutshell[edit]

Has your warcaster just done that "Hold my beer, I got this" moment...and the game is still going? Gibbs' culinary talent is here to give you a fighting chance against the retaliation, especially if the damage was self-inflicted.

Major Gibbs is a buffer for the Llaelese Resistance - a forthcoming theme force that promises to make him much more useful (for anyone not using Stryker2).

Combos and Synergies[edit]

  • Anyone Llaelese. Especially anyone with tough. Not that it's not already useful.
    • Ragman can typically struggle to apply Death Field at times. Gaining Reposition means that he can be slapping Dark Shroud on a model 12" away.
  • Warcasters or units that are prone to taking damage as part of their play style or abilities. (Lord Commander Stryker being especially notable).
  • Warcasters with Revive or similar abilities who are using multiple damage box units, such as cavalry.
    • For example, with a huge investment of Focus, Major Prime Victoria Haley can bring 3 Storm Lances back into play. Gibbs can then heal every single one.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • A Trencher Infantry Grenadier is as useful in combat and half his cost. He can't even dig in or advance deploy (although he has hit boxes) - so if you aren't taking him to buff Llaelese or heal your caster you shouldn't take him at all.
