Orin Midwinter, Rogue Inquisitor
|Crucible Guard CID is now live (Edit)||
Once a senior member of Cygnar's infamous Inquisition, Orin Midwinter has come out of hiding to reclaim his place of power as the noose closes around the country that hunted him. Specialized in hunting spell-casters, Midwinter uses his arcane energy to draw power from enemy wizards, suppress their magic, or simply strike them down with arcs of lightning.

Thoughts on Orin Midwinter, Rogue Inquisitor
Orin Midwinter, Rogue Inquisitor in a nutshell
Orin is one of the best solos in the game, point for point. Chain Lightning on a solo will kill more infantry than many units can, so while most solos underperform their cost, Orin won't unless presented with a lot of ARM. His attack is magical to boot. On top of this he comes pre-equipped with three Arcane Vortexes in his pocket that will stop your opponent from getting any ideas about debuffing your precious stuff.
Combos & Synergies
- He usually stands near a colossal, warcaster or a battle engine brandishing his No-Magic button.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- Not super useful against high ARM, but boosted POW 10's occasionally help out.
Tricks & Tips
- One power token left is generally enough to convince the enemy not to sling spells near Midwinter.
- After the third turn, he's usually ok to go spend tokens killing things
- Save damage boosts for squishy solos.
- To hit high DEF targets like Eiryss, Angel of Retribution run one of your infantry to within 4" of her and chain lightning it in the back (you shoudn't need to boost here unless you're using Nyss). You'll always get one arc off - which means you flash-fry Eiryss if she's nearest (and this is worth spending a damage token on).
- Every once in awhile, you may use his power tokens to buy and boost melee attacks. Don't forget this is allowed.
