Thoughts on Rhupert Carvolo, Piper of Ord[edit]

Rhupert Carvolo, Piper of Ord in a nutshell[edit]

Rhupert buffs infantry units, handing out Tough, Pathfinder, or Concealment.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

He's used extensively over three factions. Too many to list -

  • but any models with Prowl get real advantage from Dirge of Mists.
  • Models that can't be knocked down can keep on benefiting from Tough time after time.
  • if your army lacks pathfinder, and expect an enemy with many rough-terrain capable shots or spells, this guy can help you out.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • Does no direct work
  • His abilities cannot affect Warjacks.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • Piper is not an action - He can therefore use his tunes at any point during his activation. As a result he can do these before running or addition to attacking (if things are getting desperate).

Notable changes from Mk2[edit]

  • Almost unchanged since Mk1 other than that running away no longer happens.
  • Dirge of Mists changed from a flat DEF buff to Concealment, making it entirely redundant in melee in most instances.
