Menoth: Eye of Truth Sees You

menoth-indictor-horz

Menoth has a new character jack in town and he sees everything. Check out this new powerhouse given to the true believers.

What Is It?

This is a new character jack for the protectorate of Menoth. It costs 20 points and is Mallekus’ character jack. It hits hard, is average speed, and can ignore your opponents buff spells. It is a badass!

What Does the Eye of Truth Do?

The Eye of Menoth is sporting a 10/19 DEF ARM but he is more survivable then you think. He has a shield so that is already putting him in Khador level armor of 21. He is MAT7 and RAT6 and is sporting a RNG8 POW14 gun and a POW18 RNG2 Sword. I thought he would be SPD4 but is actually SPD5 so he is threat 10″ without buffs.

  • Ashen Veil: While not really a big life save it can make a difference if he gets to elevation.
  • Malekus: I like channeling scourge and hate taking Revengers so this is win/win.
  • Holy Light: Probably one of the best abilities in the game. If you are within 5″ of Eye you ignore ARM/DEF bonuses from spells. That is CRAZY!!!! Menoth already had purification in stable but, this jack just goes above and beyond. You literally have a 12″ circle in your army that ignores things like BLUR/Arcane Shield/Deceleration/Deflections/Etc… Incredibly strong ability!
  • Oracular Vision: Severius 2 must have blessed this jack out of the gate. Want to get rid of an ARM21 heavy, well he ignores your charge attack…good luck.

What Casters Want Eye of Truth?

Well everyone wants Eye of Truth! His Holy Light is a game changing ability. There are so many armies that take advantage of spell buffs and only so many blessed weapons or expensive purification. Remember that animi are also spells in MK3.

My personal favorite is Severius1. Severius1 already buffs his army +1+1 with his Eye ability and now Eye of Truth can help these buffed models ignore anything that might make them safe. Win Win!
Severius1 also has a spell called Vision. Stacked with Oracular Vision Eye of Truth can ignore 2 damage rolls if he has a focus. Good luck killing that jack.

Idrians love buffs and with Eye of Menoth and Lady Aiyana’s Kiss they can shoot down some heavy targets. Even a arcane shielded warjack will not want to see these guys rolling up with Eye of Truth around!

Revenant’s Final Thought:

Eye of Truth is one of the best jacks in the game. It has damage prevention, spell ignoring bubbles, it hits hard , has high armor, and vs living is respectable DEF12 with Ashen Veil.

This is a must have jack for any Menoth player considering expanding their collection.

Grade A+++!

What do you think of the new Menoth power house BoLS?

  • Nyyppä

    It’s a shame that these are too WoWesque for my taste. It they appealed to my particular aesthetic preferences I would surely get in to this game.

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      I don’t see WoW when I look at this guy. Or really anything from PP.

      • Nyyppä

        Disproportionately thin waists, joints and such accompanied by huge shoulder pads, face grills, shields, leg guards and so on. Add the bright color schemes. Not WoWesque at all. 😀

        • Red_Five_Standing_By

          I guess. I would call that cartoony.

          • Nyyppä

            It’s that. The style just reminds me of WoW.

    • I struggle with the aesthetic as well. There are some really awesome looking Warcasters but then I generally do not like either the Jacks/Warbeasts or the Units from their army. I wish I could mix and match. I do have to say, this is one of the better looking Warjacks from this faction and tempting as he looks fun to paint.
