Grundback Blaster

After painting heavy Jacks, it’s time for something smaller.
Below, Grundback Blaster :

The Blaster’s Rhulic ruggedness and durability make it both a brutal and economic weapon of war. Armed with a canister-fed Hail-Shot Cannon, the Blaster answers many of the demands of mercenary commanders and adds an incredible degree of flexibility to Rhulic forces fighting all over western Immoren.

Why I chose Blaster to my list?

  • 6 points for a Jack? Yes please!
  • Powerful Attack
  • SP 8, pow 10 weapon

Synergy with the list :

  • Energizer + Ossrum’s FEAT = 18″ shooting threat range.
  • Under Ossrum’s FEAT, Blaster has 21 ARM. Which means, that after his shot, he has a great chance to survive the opponent’s counterattack.
  • When Ossrum cast Unstoppable Force, Blaster is just perfect to run and push away enemy models from zones/flags.
  • Blaster has a nice 12 DEF. If you are in trouble, or just want to contest something important, casting Bullet Dodger on Blaster is not a bad idea. In many cases, 14 DEF and Dodge can be a problem for our opponent.

Powerful Attack and access to spray weapon is an amazing thing.
The enemy’s infantry will be in trouble 🙂
I decided to add four Blasters to my list, which now looks like this :

Mercenary Army – 34 / 75 points
