Nathaniel Garro
« on: November 27, 2015, 10:49:26 AM »
So...was looking at my e-mails this morning and noticed one from Forge World.  Nathaniel Garro, Hand of the Sigilite, First Knight Errant, the dude from Flight of the Eisenstein, has his own miniature.  It's gorgeous, like all the other FW characters series models.  What's even more amazing is his rules.

HE. IS. A. BEAST.

Seriously go check this guy out on their site. Link below.

I am sure he will be seeing more play now that the Shattered Legions and Blackshields rules are out.

As awesome as he is, he is a huge risk.  He either will earn you 1 to 3 extra VP, or if he fails to do that, you completely lose the ability to Win, so the best you can hope for is a Draw.

Yes, and his wargear isn't really amazing.

He pretty much relies on rending to do anything.

Does he have any good rules that support the army or is he just a combat HQ?
Don't try making a unit unkillable. its a waste of time and the dice gods laugh at you for wasting your time. Dedicate a unit to a job and make sure it does it til it's either dead or running.

He's a special HQ with special rules.  Basically he comes in with a modified Deep Strike and goes off and runs his own special mission.  If he succeeds you get bonus VP, if he fails, you cannot win the game.

At least that is how he works if you take him as an Agent of the Emperor in any Loyalist Army.  Maybe he has additional stuff for Blackshields or other configurations.

Unfortunately...he's pretty much a lemon.  Not overly amazing, his wargear is quite pathetic for a guy who literally has the Imperium's Vault of Armaments open to him.  And he will take a lot of shots from anything that has range to him.  The upside is....that your opponent might just throw too much at him.  So...big distraction points?

The new Knight Errant is sooooo much better, ap2 sword for a start, T5, Eternal Warrior, -1WS to opp in challenge + all the same gimmicks like the super deep strike  (FHC'd). So much more awesome, yes he's 215points, but is 215 points of awesome!
