Recently unleashed upon the enemies of the Retribution, House Vyre’s myrmidons were developed with distinct capabilities all their own. The Sphinx rends its enemies with twin force claws or uses its runespear cannon to shatter an enemy’s mystical defenses, making it more vulnerable to magical attacks.

Thoughts on Sphinx
Sphinx in a nutshell
Cheapish, resilient beatstick with a not so great gun for a heavy.
Combos & Synergies
- Rahn - A spellslinger who uses other spellslingers that go from range ten with most spells to range thirteen! Add that with Rahn's feat. and an extra sphinx or two and you can really bully most of the field with fifteen inch magic pew pews!
- Battle Mages are a must with the Sphinx, if you want to get some good usage out of this Egyptian monument pair him up with your favorite powerfist team of six. Then have him stand in front (or to the side) find a key target, and rein 'em in! YEAH!!!
Drawbacks & Downsides
- The Sphinx has a very niche role - too niche. He has one goal and that's to work with spellcasters and hit stuff, after that he is just a semi-cheap wolverine gundam.
- You pay for the gun when most of the time you bring it as a cheap beat-stick rather than any desire to use the gun.
