Andy takes a look at Dr. Arkadius, a mad scientist and warlock from the Minions faction of Hordes.
Yea, I’m underimpressed with him. He’s a bit too squishy for my preferences.
While I think he has potential, his melee syringe attacks are worse than useless. Maybe if it had a short range or something… Also, he is a beast ‘lock in a faction with 2 beasts. I think that severely limits how good he can be.
I like him with a blast boar for the animus. Someone charges him and tries to kill him, you get to syringe them before they attack, after they move. Then they advance and make an attack, or, you know, move and block the rest of the charge lane against your ‘lock.
He plays so far forward trying to have his beasts charge then frenzy and still end up in his control area, he is likely to get himself in trouble. All of his rules look sweet but those kind of daredevil antics are bound to give the opponent more chances to kill him than normal.
I surely gonna use that weapon, you need to go risky sometimes and i think it can be a great way to push back big enemies or make them useless enough to being kill easyly with any warbeast. It can sound risky but i can tell you that if you survive that , you just win. It’ just happens like that with Dene, make the enemy fall in your trap.
I see a Fabius Gallus conversion incoming ^^
mmmh I don’t know why, but I agree with Andy with one addition. I don’t even like the model… allthough I have to say im not that knowledgeable about the monions faction. Yes he is a warbeast supporter but than again what’s the point of hiding him somewhere where he can’t use his great spells (crippling grasp to name one) and the buff spell that also needs line of sight to his beasts… I don’t know I just don’t like him…
I like the model, but I can’t really see myself using it for anything…
Thats rather nice looking miniature and its skills are not bad either so I have no reason to complain.
