|Crucible Guard CID is now live (Edit)||
Originally designed and crafted from the finest materials and the skilled hands of the Golden Crucible, only a small number of Vanguards were ever produced. Able to keep pace with the fleetest of warcasters, and to set their cannon-laden shield and long hafted poleaxe against their foes, the Vanguard is a highly prized masterpiece on the battlefield.
Rules subject to change.
This is a new model, and the information here is what was given at the start of the CID cycle

Thoughts on Retaliator
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.
Retaliator in a nutshell
The Retaliator is a support light warjack based on the Vanguard chassis (a warjack developed by the Order of the Golden Crucible for the old Llaelese military). The Retaliator brings a spray weapon with diverse types of liquids it can eject for various effects. It should remain low in cost and apply helpful status effects to opposing models.
The Retaliator is a RAT 6 light warjack with a spray that isn't as flexible as it looks - basically Continuous Fire, Continuous Corrosion, or POW 8 Critical Knockdown.
Combos & Synergies
Drawbacks and Downsides
- Don't get it confused with any Protectorate warjacks beginning with the letter R (Revenger, Repenter, Redeemer).
