Thoughts on Rhupert Carvolo, Piper of Ord
Rhupert Carvolo, Piper of Ord in a nutshell
Rhupert buffs infantry units, handing out Tough, Pathfinder, or Concealment.
Combos & Synergies
He's used extensively over three factions, which means there are way too many individual combos to list. In general, though:
- 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
- Does no direct work
- His abilities cannot affect Warjacks.
Tricks & Tips
- 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).
- Released in Warmachine: Escalation (2004)
