Mercenary Minion Gobber Privateer Sea Dog Solo

Although many gobbers have gained acceptance at the fringes of society, swamp gobbers have always held a particularly unsavory reputation, and those who serve as river raiders among the pirate crews that prey on western Immoren are no exception. With rusted hooks, axes, and swords, they hack into their enemies with a savagery common only to the wilds.

Thoughts on Swamp Gobber River Raider[edit]

Swamp Gobber River Raider in a nutshell[edit]

Can't figure out a way to spend those last four points and want a three silly models with head-scratching rules? Look no further! Nobody knows quite what these things are designed to do, but it seems to involve hitting high DEF targets twice with low stats to lower their DEF. Make sense?

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • First Mate Hawk - Privateer Sea Dogs. POW 6 with 3 damage dice against warriors! Arrr!
  • Anyone that can make them more likely to hit

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

They're just so bad.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

They have an impressive synergy with Helga's feat. Swamp Gobbers move forward, reel in and are placed into the back arc of the enemy. They now have a rather good chance of hitting the enemy (Mk3 backstrike) and slamming the models forward and thus closer to your own models. Assumes you hit both attacks of course.

In SR2017 they are great throwaways for contesting and scoring flags though this was not intended in their design.
