  • Chain Gun - 10" range, POW 10, ROF d3 gun.
  • Shield - 0.5" reach, P+S 11 melee weapon.

Special Abilities[edit]

  • Warjack - All warjacks share the same set of special rules. Most notably being big and stompy.

Thoughts on Sentinel[edit]

Sentinel in a nutshell[edit]

The Sentinel is a cheap and tough shield guard with some anti-infantry shooting. You take it for shield guard (especially with Eiryss1 around) and get some work out of it because it's a warjack.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • Any jack marshal. There's no reason giving it extra focus is worthwhile - and both Drives and adding a bonus to hit with all its shots works.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • It has one of the worst melee games of any non-Rhulic warjack. Of course that's not why you take it.
  • Both the Ogrun Bokur and the Trench Buster are cheaper shield guards (although nowhere near as tough)
  • With random number of shots, it's already bad damage potential can seem even worse (or better) than expected. Don't expect it to hold off too much infantry on its own.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • Remember it can slam. And is better slamming than in normal melee.

Comparison to Mk2[edit]

Less faffy - d3 shots rather than a weird Shield Guard rule.

Rules Clarifications[edit]

Rules Clarification : Warjack      (Edit)

  • Please refer to the Warjack page for a recap of the warjack rules, and the very few associated Infernal Rulings.

Rules Clarification : Construct - None yet. (Edit)

Rules Clarification : Shield Guard      (Edit)

  • Shield Guard doesn't work vs spells.
  • Since Shield Guard specifies "opponent's turn", it can't be used against stuff that shoots in your own turn (such as Watcher or Counterblast).
  • The Shield Guard does not necessarily need to be in the attacker's LOS or range.
  • You shift all effects onto the shield guard, including stuff that triggers on "when this attack hits".
  • When you use Shield Guard vs an AOE attack, the template moves too. Because, with reference to Apdx A, the hit 'moves' at Step 6 and the template placement is determined at Step 7.
  • Shield Guard doesn't work vs Point Blank attacks. Because Point Blank attacks are melee attacks that are made using a ranged weapon.
    • On the other hand, it will work vs Gunfighter attacks.

Rules Clarification : Shield and/or Buckler     (Edit)

  • The only time you lose the Shield bonus is when the weapon is crippled, or if the attack originates in your back arc. (Infernal Ruling)
    • In other words, you still get the Shield bonus while knocked down or stationary.
