Legion has been practicing with swords and it is decapitating!  Check out Everblight’s newest Legion solo.

What Is It?

This is a new solo for Legion of Everblight.  The Nyss Warlord cost 5 points and is FA:2.  Having 2 of these guys charging up the field can be really scary.  They have potential to hit heavies for massive damage which is always wanted with the current meta.

What Does the Warlord Do?

The Warlord has decent stats  starting with SPD6 MAT8 with DEF14 and ARM13.  This is pretty strong stat line for a guy getting into melee.

As of most solos he has a whole host of special rules:

Blade Shield:  While blast immunity would have been nice, DEF16 vs shooting is still really strong.

Cleave:  He can kill 2 models

Leadership:  He gives swordsmen the ability to pick columns/branches when hitting jacks/beasts

Overtake:  He can get that 2nd attack 1″ farther after killing his charge target.

Precision Strike: Picking columns/branches is really strong with all these shield jacks roaming around.

The warlord is armed with a RNG1 POW11 weaponmaster sword and has DECAPITATION.  That is right not crit decap but always on DECAPITATION.  Don’t let this solo charge your heavies cause they might get deleted!

Lists with the Blighted Nyss Warlord:

Why Vayl2 wants the warlords?  She can deliver them!  Boundless Charge combined with a Slipstream gives the 14″ threat which is devastating fast.  Icy Grip can help the warlord hit even DEF17 pretty reliably.  Chasten can clear off problem spells like polarity shield or Arcane Shield.  Vayl2 can get the Warlord to the target and having him deliver that sick decapitation!

Revenant’s Final Thought:

While Nyss warlord doesn’t have stealth or any real chance of making it with ARM13 if any decent blasts or spells hit him.  But, that might be part of his attraction.  He is a huge target which your opponent has to consider.  You might be able to use this to your advantage.  Using valuable resources to kill a solo can keep other important models in the mix.  If the warlord can get to a target he can devastate.  It still is a dice game and bad rolls happen but he has a high probability of causing some trouble.

A+ if you can get him there otherwise C+ if you can’t haha!

    The fact that he also loans Precision Strike to The Swordsmen doesn’t hurt either.
