Set 2: Spitting
By Bruce R. Cordell and Rob Heinsoo
It Rocks: Like its big cousins, the dragons, the Spitting Felldrake
hawks nasty gobs of acid.
and Tactics: Ravilla enjoys a wonderful ability to attack its enemies
at range, and the Spitting Felldrake doesnt let the warband down
-- it can spit its acid in a range of 6". The great thing about this
model is that its not a one-trick dragon. If an enemy closes on
it, the Spitting Felldrake has a decent melee attack for its unit cost.
or two Spitting Felldrakes into your Ravilla army. Run them out ahead
of your archers, using them as shields to slow down melee troops attempting
to close with your archers. The dragon has 4 health, so it can take a
round or two of strikes even from heavy-hitters that deal 2 damage against
it (assuming it successfully makes its morale save). Ideally, the Spitting
Felldrake can get off acid blobs at range before enemy models close on
it, but really, its happy either way. Even though the Spitting Felldrake
doesnt have the Precise Shot ability, its acid spittle is a ranged
touch attack; it can still clock enemy models with acid on a 15 instead
of 11 when they are already engaged with any of your other troops.
