Thoughts on Master Gunner Dougal MacNaile
Master Gunner Dougal MacNaile in a nutshell
Dougal Macnaile is a ranged support solo who will spend most of his time using Artillerist on a ranged warjack. His Double Powder Ration ability assists with ranged alpha strikes in privateer armies and is his main selling point. his Veteran Leader ability would be more useful if Sea Dog Deck Guns weren't so lousy.
Combos & Synergies
Privateer shooters for double powder ration include
- Galleon - the Mercenary Colossal loves extra range.
- Sea Dog Pirates - a lot of shooters there.
- The Commodore Cannon & Crew Boom!
- Sea Dog Deck Gun are slightly better with a veteran leader around
- The Devil's Shadow Mutineers
- And the two warjacks the Buccaneer and the Mariner
Other good sources of ranged AOEs for the first couple of turns are
- Horgenhold Artillery Corps
- Ghordson Avalancher
- Ghordson Earthbreaker
- Mule - although the Mule mostly crit-fishes
- Hammerfall Siege Crawler
- Renegade - Magnus' personal warjack with its one shot obliterator rocket loves a RAT buff and the ability to reroll the distance it deviates.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- Support Bloat - it's easy to use up too many of your army points on support models like this guy.
Tricks & Tips
- Artillerist is most useful on turns 1 and possibly 2. After that he can get stuck in with the Quad Iron.
