New from Privateer Press… Lord Arcanist Ossyan

Here’s what I’m talking about!

I’ve been a bit underwhelmed by a most of the Warcasters for the Retribution of Scyrah. However, this guy looks like the full-on battlemage that I think they’re missing. Here’s the blurb from Privateer Press

The fundamental laws of reality twist and shatter beneath the will of Ossyan, Lord Arcanist of House Vyre. Time bends with but a gesture from him, and he can alter his perception to see the convergence of fate. Armed with perfect foresight he is a deadly combatant and battlefield general. Ossyan’s myrmidons and soldiers move with the assurance of destiny as he unleashes House Vyre’s sophisticated armaments upon the enemies of the Retribution.

Prefect foresight eh? Could we be looking at the first Warmachine model to come with Prescience?

For those who don’t know, Prescience is the animus of the Skorne Cyclops Savage, which allows you to elect to boost after you have rolled your 2D6… it’s arguably one of the best spells/abilities in the game!

Of course I would expect the temporal abilities on this guy too… that’s Temporal Barrier (no charges or running and -2DEF), Time Bomb (a big AoE that also reduced SPD and DEF) and Temporal Acceleration (an extra attack and movement).

Despite all that, I just want to have a big beatstick to lead my Retribution. I currently run a list of Magehunters, Manticores and light ‘jacks, but I want an excuse to use some of the heavier stuff… including the new Artificer!

What do you want this guy to do?
