The bounty is out and it is QUAKING! Come take a look at the newest bounty hunter of them all!
Who is Hutchuck?
This is a new merc/minion solo. He will work for Cygnar, Khador and Mercs. He will also work for Circle, Trollbloods, and Skorne. I guess dragons can’t have all the fun. Sorry Cryx and Legion.
What Does he Do?
Hutchuck is an ogrun with a job. And he does his job well. He has similar stats to the bokur RAT/MAT 6 and Def 13. ARM16 with 8 boxes means he needs a good whack sent his way or he is going to keep on moving. He has a range 8” gun that has a load of awesome abilities:
Brain Damage: If you get whacked by this you can’t cast or upkeep spells or aniumus. Even warbeasts have to watch out.
Quake: Direct hit on enemy model is a knockdown! Knockdowns are scary and especially ones coming from Hutchuck!
Rust: Warjacks lose some armor. That colossal too tanky? Not when Hutchuck is around!
Wow and that is just his gun! Hutchuck is loaded some other nasty surprises too:
Ambush: That’s right. POW 14 reach Ogrun coming at you from the board edge. He can threaten 13” plus his base from the board edge with a charging halberd. This guy packs a punch.
Take Down: WHAT! The bounty hunter doesn’t take prisoners he takes lives! RFP is becoming more and more important these days. Watch out blightbringer, Thagrosh can’t save you from Hutchuck!
Wild Shot: He can shoot before he moves. Hutchuck can kill before he moves and after. This isn’t bushwack, this is better!
Who Wants the Bounty Hunter?
Hutchuck is a great addition to any list. He is a top tier solo that can cause issues turn 2 and beyond. Small arms fire will have a touch time taking him down you never know where he might be popping up with Ambush.
Some caster synergies:
Cygnar: Any snipe caster or deadeye caster. Increasing the range or accuracy of his grenades will make models and even some casters worried. All 3 haleys can keep Hutchuck safe and going longer with their defensive spells.
Khador: Sorscha or Zerkova 2 can freeze models making Hutchuck’s grenades on target. You can shake stationary but you can’t shake Brain Damage.
Mercs: Ossrum has both snipe and Fire for Effect which is both good on the bounty hunter. The master gunner can give him artillerist and boosted range.
Trolls: Trolls might have a hard time fitting the bounty hunter in since most of their buffs are faction only. Gunbjorn does have snipe so he might take a fancy.
Circle: Rust is a big addition to circle. High armor warjacks don’t always go down to 1 stalker.
Skorne: Rasheth and Hutchuck are a armor nightmare. A collosal could get down to armor 12 if they live the dream with feat/spells/grenades.
