Professor Viktor Pendrake has become a legend in his own time. He has passed down the wisdom of years in the wild by heading up the Department of Extraordinary Zoology in Corvis but recent events have pulled him from the halls of academia. After surviving enslavement by the Skorne he returned to the west to rejoin old friends and aid his allies in their struggles for survival.

Thoughts on Viktor Pendrake
Viktor Pendrake in a nutshell
Viktor Pendrake is a tech piece - he is taken for his Beast Lore which hands out a to hit buff against warbeasts. As Titans are so low DEF and Trolls aren't known for being hard to hit either this means that he is taken against the Circle Orboros warp wolves and the Legion of Everblight fliers. He's great in the right metagame - not so much the rest of the time.
Combos & Synergies
- Anyone with critical effects
Drawbacks and Downsides
- Know your metagame. He's too situational for tournaments but works in leagues when you know who you will be facing.
Tricks and Tips
- The knockdown bolas is pretty good.
- This entry first appeared in Forces of Hordes: Minions (2011).
| Cygnar (Edit)
Note: When taken in the Heavy Metal theme, he doesn't count against your "up to one Merc solo" allowance.
