Check out the new waiter serving hot meals in Warmachine. We take a look at Cygnar’s Major Harrison Gibbs.

What is it?

This is a Cygnar mercenary that is a character solo. He is a Llaelse trencher. He counts as a faction model similar to Gallant and Constance Blaize when taken in Cygnar. He costs 4 points.

What does Gibbs do?

Major Harrison has a typical human like solo stat line. He is SPD/MAT/RAT of 6 with DEF/ARM of 13 and sporting 5 boxes. Not horrible and not amazing.

Gibbs is armed with a Military Rifle that is RNG 10 ROF1 that has 2 different shots:

Grenade: An AOE 3 and POW 10 with POW 10 blast damage. This is actually really useful shot that could kill a clump of infantry.
Rifle: POW11

In melee he is swinging a 1/2″ melee POW10 with crit brutal. Not threathening any heavies but, can kill solos.

Gibbs is loaded with special rules:
Assault: He can threathen 19″ away with his rifle.
Tough: Trencher skills!
Dodge: While his defense isn’t absurd it might come up if a low attack roll whiffs to keep him in a safe space.
Feign Death: He might live longer if he makes his tough roll.
Hot Meal: This is the skill you have probably heard about. It is an auto-include in Stryker2. All living warrior models heal to full within 7″. It can keep your caster running full steam ahead if he has taken some shots during the game. It is really a powerful ability.
Reposition 3″: Take that shot next to an obstruction and move back behind it after you are done.
Leadership Llaelse: Feign Death and Reposition 3″ There is a suprising number of LLaelse models. The two that come to mind are Gorman and Ragman. Both of these models can really do some powerful combo’s when they have reposition 3″. Gorman can place his cloud and then run behind it to reliably block LOS. Ragman can get further up the field to effect more models with his Death Field.

Here you go guys, just like you like it!

List with Gibbs:

Gibbs is Stryker2 favorite solo now. He can go deep and hit up that extra damage to kill a heavy, then have Gibbs pop hot meal to do it again next turn. This list has crazy threat range, massive infantry clearing, and can threathen heavies.

Cygnar Army – 75 / 75 points

(Stryker 2) Lord Commander Stryker [+28]
– Ol’ Rowdy [18]
– Lancer [10]
– Squire [5]
Storm Lances (max) [20]
Storm Lances (max) [20]
Major Katherine Laddermore [8]
Journeyman Warcaster [4]
– Sentinel [8]
Major Harrison Gibbs [4]
Gorman di Wulfe, Rogue Alchemist [4]
Gobber Tinker [2]

Revenant’s Closing Thought:

Gibbs is a great solo. Giving reposition to Ragman is probably worth the 4 points. Every Stryker2 play has probably already pre-ordered this model.

A+ solo.

    That’s one nasty cat right there.

      Where do you think he gets the ingredients for the hot meal?

      • Hawt Dawg

        Mmm… cat stew.

        Oddly, his style of cooking reflects the opposition he is facing; no one wants to touch the Sryx Stew.

  • zeno666

    I really like this guy. There are some neat options there.

    • ZeeLobby

      Yeah. Not too shabby.

    That’s the least impressive beard I’ve seen on a mini in a long time; but kudos to the chef for having swiped Khârn the Betrayer’s fox tails.
