Legion: Kallus Devastation of Everblight Burninates!

 

 

A new beefy guy for Legion is in town. Kallus has mutated into a new hulking monster. Come check out Kallus 2.

Who is Kallus2?

This is Kallus new form. This is the second version of Kallus and he is very different then the previous. More of an infantry support caster is his earlier form, Kallus2 is now more of a beast caster. He also has gained an obsession with fire that would rival Horgle’s. He has Fury6 and 28 warbeast points for a decent sized battlegroup. If you want a tanky big guy as your caster and Thagrosh isn’t enough check Kallus Devastation of Everblight out.

 

What Does Kallus2 Do?

Kallus is SPD7 large based model that is DEF13 and ARM18. That is already pretty impressive but, throw in 20 boxes of life and we are talking TANK! Kallus is armed with a RNG2 POW15 sword and his Mount is POW14.

Special Rules:

  • Field Marshal: Melee weapons of his battlegroup warbeast cause continuous fire. I don’t think this is that great but, his feat synergies with fire so you can use lesser warbeast to set up for the big ones.
  • Hyper Regeneration: Heal d3 is nice for a guy that is already so tanky.
  • Re-position 3: Useful for hit and runs.
  • Flame Burst: Fire!!!
  • Mount Critical Knockdown: You might consider not charging if you need to knockdown a high defense target.

Spells:
Battle Lust: Expensive pseudo weapon masters for warrior models. This makes any warrior model deadly in legion.
Blazing Path: This spell is pretty brutal if you are running infantry and can’t kill the last couple targets in range. More FIRE!
Brand of Fire: RNG 10 POW14 nuke that sets stuff on fire!
Overrun: Mortenebra and Sthrakov must be jelly. Overrun on a hordes beast is a scary thing. Since, most warbeast have more attacks then a Cryx or Khador jack this is a pretty powerful spell.

Feat:
Kallus can make models on fire take a POW12. +3 to charge distance and free charges against models on fire. The threat ranges on Kallus battlegroup is scary far!

What Would a Decent Kallus2 list Look Like?

Kallus can run warbeast well and battlelust makes infantry just as scary.
This list has a combination of fast moving infantry and tricky beasts to make use of the feat. Proteus also has some of the longest base threats in legion and that is only extended farther with overrun, the feat, and slipstream.

Revenant’s Final Thought:

Kallus is a speed machine. He is a little single-minded, but he does that pretty well. He doesn’t have any defensive buffs so you are purely relying on Legion’s base stats to make it across the field.

I give him a B- grade.

He can get to nasty spots with overrun!

    Don’t forget you can also use the flying sorceresses to make your Nephilim charge for free and nail that fire damage!

  • Too bad the box art looks so much cooler than the actual miniature. I am tempted to get an Everblight force together but there are just too many of the figures that are less than aesthetically pleasing that I keep deciding against it.

    Is pp kidding me with these models? What the hell is happening over there?

    Hire a good sculptor and let’s move on. That model is the definition of derp. Unreal.
