Chainmail Set 3: Gnoll Cleric
By Bruce R. Cordell and Rob Heinsoo
Model: Gnoll Cleric
Why It Rocks: The Gnoll Cleric is Nareshs best commander and, in fact, it ranks alongside the best commanders in the game.
Tricks and Tactics: There are so many good ways to use the Gnoll Cleric, its more worthwhile to mention the way you can turn its one tactical problem into an advantage.
The Gnoll Clerics heavy armor slows it down. It has trouble keeping up with its fast comrades; if you push your Abyssal troops forward quickly, its not uncommon for the Cleric to reach the battle after the rest of your troops have fought the enemy to a standstill. Fortunately the Cleric has the spells, armor, and melee attack to finish the job all by itself.
Enemies Who Hate to See It: Models with generally low melee attack scores, like the undead and many ranged attackers, cant cope with the Gnoll Clerics full-plate protection, much less its shield of faith spell.
