Set 3: Skeletal
By Bruce R. Cordell and Rob Heinsoo
It Rocks: The Skeletal Equiceph is fast charging, hard hitting, and
-- if youre the lucky type -- your opponent may never damage
it in normal attacks.
Tricks and Tactics:
I confess: Saying that the Skeletal Equiceph can always escape damage
is an exaggeration. But your opponent can end up feeling its
true if youre lucky when you make your Skeletal 11+ rolls.
good news is that your Equiceph wont have to survive too many 50/50
damage rolls before you can count on it taking out your enemies with its
high melee damage. 9
high-speed model with Reach 1", the Equiceph gives you tactical options.
If you need to deliver a big punch to a weak spot in the enemys
warband, the Equiceph has the speed to get there. If youd rather
wait and force the enemy to attack, the Equiceph gets a free opportunity
attack swing at any model moving up and attacking it that doesnt
have Reach 1".
Enemies Who Hate
to See It: Archer warbands suffer lethal embarrassments when fast-moving
Skeletal creatures with Reach 1" charge into their midst.
