Cygnar: Colonel Brisbane – the ROCKETMAN

Siege2 is here.  The Rocket Man is in flight and he is here to crush the enemies of Cygnar.  Let’s see what makes him tick.

Siege2 has changed up his MO a little bit.  Before he was a quiet guy sitting back and shooting his enemies walls down with his rocket.  Now he is all about getting into your opponents buisness and bringing all the Cygnar infantry with him while he does it.  If you were looking for some more melee shenanigans in Cygnar Siege2 is going to be the guy for you.

Lets take a look at what Siege2 is all about.

He is a pretty beefy boy for not being on a horse at DEF14 ARM18 with 18 boxes.

Siege2 is sporting a Melee 2″ POW15 Hammer. He can definitely put a dent into some heavies with this hammer!

A independent Rocket RNG 12 POW14.  This is kind of a plan a turn ahead weapon. It can’t fire immediately but, it is a nice big gun.

Siege2 Spells and Abilities:

Place his rocket turret… fire and forget!

Desperate Pace(Trencher): This is rather nasty with his feat making 1 trencher unit extremely fast.  Commandos can get in great positioning for their sprays.

Jump Back: If he charged he can retreat 5″ back.

Rocket Pack: When Siege doesn’t charge he can spend a focus to fly 5″ and get a boosted damage roll.  He must of been listening to a lot of Elton.

Ram: If he hits you with the hammer you get knocked down.  Siege is melee monster!

Perfect Position:  3″ advance for warriors med/small base, warjacks get bulldoze, everybody gets dig in.  That is a monster feat. Adding to some great threat ranges!!!

Lets make a Siege2 List:

We want to take advantage of the sweet new Trenchers and get a bunch of free points!  Let’s hit up the gravedigger theme.  Commando’s are now the hot stuff with the new command attachment coming out.  Throw in some express teams and we have a good ole trench warfare ready to wage!  This list shoots and hits hard, what more can you ask for!

Revenant’s final thoughts:

Siege2 is a boss in melee.  He is a lot different then his first incarnation but, that isn’t a bad thing.  He is on par with Stryker in helping deliver his army in the melee department.

I love him. A+ Privateer!

    Great now that you called Brisbane rocket man, the Glorious Leader is now going to threaten PP with a nuke threat! And Brisbane is going to make the rounds on the presidential tweeter.

    I am not the biggest fan of the model (love his new DLC pet though and it really synergizes with him) but I love his rules. I guess getting almost killed by the Butcher really made Brisbane more aggressive. Something tells me Brisbane is looking to return a favor.

      LOL. Too many rocket men out there…

    Looks like a nice sculpt. Pose is a bit ‘dance-y’, but nice enough.

    • ZeeLobby

      Yeah, dunno why his leg is all out to the side, would have looked better just bent back imo.

        Someone in the studio loves the one leg airborne pose

        • ZeeLobby

          Haha. Yeah. I mean one legged pose is fine, just could have had the other leg positioned bent under the body. Not sure why it’s out to the side like that…

    Dude seriously looks like a steampunk Space Marine.
