Protectorate: Believe in the Devout/Dervish/Purifier


The new light jack kit is out for Menoth.  Today we look at what the 3 lights in this kit do and how to make the most of them.

What is it?

This new plastic jack kit replaces the old metal Devout and Dervish blisters and unleashes the brand new Purifier in a new multipart plastic kit.  Whether you are looking for some extra pain in the melee department or some increased defense for your favorite menoth warcaster this is a kit to check out.


The Dervish is a light warjack with 2 1″ POW13 swords. It is elusive with it’s DEF13, Side Step, and Parry.  It can also threaten higher armor models when it uses combo strike.  It has a lot of potential and only costs 7 points to field.  Casters like Amon and Tristan2 can really pump up the melee potential with their jack buffs. The Dervish can threaten heavier targets and make use of Enliven since it has Parry.



The Devout is a light warjack with a 2″ halberd and a shield.  This jack has been the defensive jack goto for ages to keep your warcaster safe from enemy spells and shooting. It comes in at 9 points and do some relative work with its MAT7.  With it’s special rules of shield guard, defensive strike, and spell barrier it can keep your safe defended while shrugging off some heavy hits.  Harbringer rarely leaves home without one.


The Purifier is the new light melee warjack with 2 RNG 1″ POW 13 Crit Fire chain weapons. It causes Fire to any enemies it contacts and has Overtake. It is 1 point more then the Dervish at 8 but, can potentially get deeper into the enemy lines if it can continue to destroy models.  Being able to ignore shields is nothing to scoff at either. Since it serves a similar function as the Dervish it will also excel in jack casters like Amon or Tristan2.

What is a Good List for these Lights?

Amon loves jacks and these lights can really get rolling with Synergy buffs.  Throw in the extra theme benefit from Creator’s Might and we are talking a really nasty list.

Revenant’s Final Thought:

All 3 of the menoth’s lights can get work done.  The Purifier flame trail can just ignore high defense models and let fire finish the job for him.

B+ for points and potential.
