The very impressive ‘pair’ of Warlocks from the Lock N’ Load Hordes 10th Anniversary Set are a spectacular looking diorama but they also have a use in battle. See what Privateer Press have to say about using them both in your games…
Kromac – Champion of the Wurm
“Though his gameplay is markedly different from his previous incarnation, Kromac, Champion of the Wurm maintains a key play style similarity to Kromac the Ravenous—he can support the battle from a distance with his magic, and he can personally wade into combat to perform devastating melee attacks.
His base stats support both modes of operation very well thanks to an impressive control area and spell list on one side and high combat stats for both offense and defense on the other.”
Saeryn & Rhyas – Talons of Everblight
“For the first time, two warlocks have been combined into a single warlock unit for their epic incarnations, providing a truly unique gameplay experience. The Talons of Everblight activate as a single unit, and they share a single battlegroup, but they force and leach individually using their own control areas.
This allows the pair to run quite a few warbeasts, even without the aid of Shepherds or Forsaken. The twins can also channel spells through one another or transfer damage to one another if necessary, further opening up their tactical options.”
I love that not only do you have this monstrous beast of a model in Kromac but also this new take on Warlocks with Saeryn and Rhyas. The fact that you have both of them activating at once, each with their own powers and abilities, should make for really interesting gameplay.
You can learn more about their tactics on their Insider post linked above.
Did you pick one of these sets up?
