Andy gets another look at Warmachine: Wrath. This time it’s the new additions to the holy armies of Menoth.
Sanctifier is on the Castigator/Reckoner Chassis. I am struggling whether I will take it… it does provide some focus relief for our lower focus casters. BoM is fantastic, I can’t say enough for his sidestep, plus with parry, he can trample and not get any free strikes. Choir plus his ability, MAT 10, POW 20, 2 initial attacks. SoH is really hurt by the fact he has no reach, he is so slow. He is universally reviled by the community at large, he doesn’t seem very good to me. I have no plans to take him right now, I’d rather have a vanquisher.
The merc officer is good, you can throw defenders ward on people… but I never take mercs, so I can’t speak to it.
The Flameguard officer is the worst release in the entire book. He brings nothing useful to the unit, and he is 2 pts for one guy. Absolutely terrible.
Nicia is incredible, I can’t wait to see the model.
I haven’t used the Battle Engine, but it looks like it has promise.
Overall, the releases are great for Menoth, added lots of nice toys to the faction.
“The Flameguard officer is the worst release in the entire book. He brings nothing useful to the unit, and he is 2 pts for one guy. Absolutely terrible. ” @garwjenk Surely you forget Triumph? One thing I am a bit fuzzy on is if the wall of fire grants a def bonus as normal walls do. If it dose then he can make himself useful with that alone.
The battle engine is probably the best of the four. It kind of sucks its only rof 1 but it’s boostable with no outside effects, like enemies hitting it or soul tokens, needed. It also brings all those little utility abilities that make all the difference between an allstar toolbox and just a big gun. It isn’t as potentially scary as a wraith engine glutted on souls with a perfect charge set up or as versatile as a gun carriage knocking stuff down and dropping terrain aoes, but it meets them both halfway. If protectorate didn’t have a 1 point mechanic I might think less of it for damaging itself, but yea.
I am just after buying the Thyra, flame of sorrow warcaster. Nice little model but tough enough to put together as there are a few little bits to it. I dont have the Warmachine: Wrath book so i didnt know what I was getting myself into when I was getting her. Now I have to buy a load of Daughters of the flame. Not sure about her feat though. I feel that you would have to get the timing perfect to get it working effectively.
I love how Cryx is always one of the last……. sigh…..
Hm… Damn, that makes me want to play them…
right time to sell more stuff then, looking good. Like the idea of Thyra with some sisters
I played against Thyra last night, got my blighted nyss arse handed to me, shes annoying as hell to pin down
blood of martyrs is the greatest warjack for menoth, theres a combination that i came up with that makes it hit even harder than the avatar, choir battle prayer, mat 8 pow 18 with blades, hand of vengeance mat 10 pow 20 blades, carnage mat 12 pow 20, u combine it with a reclaimer with 3 soul tokens and you give it grevious wounds, in short, anything it touches dies and with sidestep, she can creep through enemy lines and slaughter any warcaster with at least 2 hits. it is stupid good and if used right can be the greatest warjack for menoth.
Thanks for the review, I think blood of martyrs is much better than scourge of heresy. With sidestep it can actually get 5 inches further up field. Scourge has a nice collection of abilities but will very rarely get there.
