Menoth Revelator 101: Burninating the Countryside

Menoth’s newest colossal the Revelator has hit the rack and it is seeing through the darkness.

What Is It?

This is a big honking piece of holy metal that can shoot all the stealthed models off the board. We have had the stats for a long time for the Revelator but, it took a long time to hit the shelves. Today we breakdown this light in the darkness and what it can mean for menoth players.

The Revelator is very similar hitting power in melee to the Judicator. Sproting twp MAT 6 POW21 fists. What makes it different from the Judicator is its shooting. The Revelator has 2 4″ AOE POW 15’s and 2 14″ POW12 that all cause fire damage.

Revelator Special Rules:

Feretory: Ignores Concealment and Stealth. This model has magic weapons while this system is working. This is big for Menoth for a few reasons. Outside of taking Rhoven and his guard, there was little in ways to see through stealth for Menoth. The Revelator having this innately gives way to taking less support. Magic weapons are very useful vs Cryx and Grymkin because they tend to have not only stealth models but incorporeal as well. Finally, magic weapons are good vs the mirror match to ignore choir and good vs the wind wall spell.

Conflagrator: The 4″ Aoe gun leaves a big piece of burning fire on the ground that does a POW12 fire roll to models entering it. This is a good way to jam up enemy infrantry trying to slip past a corridor of terrain.

Light Bringer: The 14″ range guns not only have a decent range they also reveal stealthed models they hit for 1 turn similar to the flare special rule.

A Good List for the Revelator?

The Revelator hits hard, can help vs stealth and is pretty good vs infantry. I think throwing that all together can make a pretty nasty shooting list. Let’s check out Sev2 gunline with the Revelator in it. This list gives you nasty shooting with a decent infantry presence.

We think the Revelator is a great addition to the faction and are glad that we can finally field it in some real battles instead of proxying.

    I am reading Godless right now and it gives some great insight into how Menites see themselves and their relationship to their god. I was worried that a Menoth colossal wouldn’t have nipple guns but I am glad we are sticking with tradition.

    Is anyone else thinking Sisters of Battle Penitent Engine conversion?
