Thoughts on Pyg Lookouts
Feel free to remove this warning if you, personally, have a good level of gameplay experience with the model, have reviewed this article, and either you A) agree with the content 100% or B) for the parts you disagree with, you don't strongly disagree; and it's more a case of differing opinions between you and previous editors rather than incorrect content / bad advice.
Pyg Lookouts in a nutshell
The Pyg Lookouts are forward scouts to warn raiding parties of what is ahead. They're taken for their mobility, ranged attacks, and the Mark Target buff.
They have both ambush and advance deploy, making their deployment options much more interesting.
Combos & Synergies
They are very similar in function to Cygnar rangers and thus are good with any shooty model - and especially the shooty units. (Cygnar's Rangers of course are much better shots).
- Any model with a gun really digs the to hit buff.
- Cheap and expendable- use their ambush to set up marked targets.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- The lookouts in practice don't do much shooting themselves; RAT 4 is terrible and military rifles aren't that great.
Tricks & Tips
- Individual lookouts will buff each other, but not themselves, which slightly helps their terrible RAT.
- There's not really any benefit to running more than 4, as you only need 1 to get the bonus.
