Abilities[edit]

  • Warcaster Benefits - While B2B with its warcaster, this model can do one of the following:
    • Lucky Charm (★ Action) - The warcaster gains a reroll.
    • Reloader (★ Action) - The warcaster gains an additional ranged attack.
    • Spyglass (★ Action) - Target enemy loses Stealth for one round.


Thoughts on Reinholdt, Gobber Speculator[edit]

Reinholdt, Gobber Speculator in a nutshell[edit]

Reinholdt is a favourite attachment of warcasters with a good gun. His ability to remove Stealth is great when it comes into play - which isn't every game. But an extra shot on a good gun can be an amazing benefit.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

Any warcaster with a big gun.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • Unarmed.
  • Despite having 5 boxes, his ARM is so low that even a below average damage roll from POW 10 will kill him.
  • If you have a very mobile 'caster, you may find him out of position and effectively useless for a turn.
    • And if anything slows him down, the requirement for getting into B2B with you 'caster can similarly deny you a chance to use him.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • Watch for stealth units. If there are none and your caster can shoot safely use reload. Lucky Charm is a distant third.

Rules Clarifications[edit]

RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Unarmed      (Edit)

  • Since this model has no weapons it does not have a melee range.
    • This means it can't engage other models, declare charges, or make free strikes
    • Also it can't gain abilities that require a melee range (such as Ragman granting this model Dark Shroud).
  • However, other models that do have melee weapons can engage this model. So this model can still gain the "target in melee" shooting bonus.

Rules Clarification : Attached      (Edit)

  • Attached models are not (normally) part of the warcaster's/warlock's battlegroup. (Infernal Ruling)
(You need the Companion rule to become part of the battlegroup).
  • Thus, attachments are not affected by battlegroup-only effects such as Energizer (unless they're a Companion).

Rules Clarification : Dodge      (Edit)

  • Dodge triggers after any missed attack - melee, ranged, or magic.
  • If you shoot at a model with Dodge that's in melee and miss, Dodge will trigger regardless of whether you then hit the random new target or not.
    • The Dodge movement occurs after making the attack against the new target.
  • An enemy model with 2" melee range that is B2B with you before you Dodge, will be exactly 2" away afterwards, and thus will be able to attempt a 2nd melee attack.
  • If you're missed by an AOE attack, but it doesn't deviate very far and still hits you then: Dodge still triggers, but the AOE does damage before you get the Dodge movement. (Infernal Ruling)
  • Dodge plus Riposte (Edit)
    • If a model has both Dodge and Riposte, Dodge triggers before Riposte (Appendix A Step 12 vs Step 14).

Rules Clarification : Warcaster Benefits - None yet. (Edit)
Rules Clarification : Lucky Charm - None yet. (Edit)

Rules Clarification : Reloader      (Edit)

  • Reload provides an additional ranged attack and all additional attacks are basic attacks by definition. So you can't use Reloader to do an extra special attack (★ Attack).
  • If a warcaster charges then they can only make additional melee attacks, and so won't benefit from Reloader.

Rules Clarification : Spyglass      (Edit)

  • This ability essentially has infinite range.
