Analysis of Warpborn Skinwalkers[edit]

Warpborn Skinwalkers in a Nutshell[edit]

Warpborn Skinwalkers are some of the toughest infantry in the game. The only other infantry with as many wounds as they do are either Convergence and made of metal or Khador's Man-O-Wars. The Alpha's Gang ability gives them the offence they need.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

The tough benefit from being tougher. Anything that gives a mass ARM buff

Drawbacks and Downsides[edit]

  • One mediocre attack per model. They are hard to kill - but don't do much work themselves. A shield not a sword.

Tricks and Tactics[edit]

  • Without unyielding, their arm isn't that great. Running to engage can often make them safer than not.


Changes from Mk2[edit]

They had Terror, native Pathfinder, CMA, Fearless, Relentless Advance (+2 spd after being damaged), and +1 POW on their weapons. The CA gave them Rapid Strike, and Blood Drinker.
