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]

The River Raiders, bought in a block of three at barely more than a point each, are a case of "you get what you pay for." However, they are somewhat versatile due to being three cheap solos with Dual Attack - they can get base to base with enemy models and debuff them, opening possibilities for harder hitters to charge in and finish the job.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

You get what you pay for - and pay almost nothing for these.

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.
