Menoth: Warder Elias Gade is a Deadeye

Menoth Errant lovers everywhere, if you like crossbows there is a new solo out that is a must have.

Exemplar Warder Elias Gade is new solo out for Menoth.  He is a great solo hunter and can deliver blessed bolts from afar.

Whats Gade All About?

Gade has your typical elite errant stats with MAT7 RAT7 and he is a little slowed down by all that armor at SPD5.  He comes loaded with all kinds of goodies and is a deal at 5 points. His lifespan is increased near errants and he also gives them buffs so it is a match made for menoth synergy!

Gades Loadout

  • 2 POW9 weaponmaster attacks and 2 RNG 10 magic blessed xbow shots.
  • Advance Deploy : Standard errant
  • Pathfinder: Mountains are easy for this guy
  • Assault: Can kill 3 guys a turn if you live the dream
  • Call to Sacrifice (Errant):  He is hard to get rid of near a unit of errants.
  • Leadership (Errant): Pathfinder.  Some people why errants didn’t have it in the first place but, better late then never.
  • Prey:  While this isn’t to important for a solo with 2 attacks it does make him annoying if near a big unit.
  • True Sight:  Clouds and Stealth are pretty annoying and he cares not.

Whats a Good List for Gade?

This old pop and drop is a little more melee heavy than normal but, still has that ranged threat.  Sometimes casters are immune to knockdown or you just can’t get into the spot that will win the game with the shots.  What this list gives you is still a nasty dual approach of melee and ranged.  With the blessed guns from the them and high armor from defenders ward you can take on a variety of foes. Plus, Gade costs 0 points which is even sweeter!

Reventant’s Final Thought:

I think Elias Gade is a great solo and if you field errants normally he is a great addition.  Having true sight on a ranged model is always useful and combine that with blessed means not to many things outside really high defense will keep his targets safe from his holy bolts.

A+ solo for Menoth!
