Chainmail Set 4: Half-Orc Assassin
By Rob Heinsoo
Model: Half-Orc Assassin
Faction: Ahmuts Legion
Why It Rocks: When it gets its double daggers flying against a living enemy who has at least one other foe to contend with, the Half-Orc Assassins Sneak Attack damage makes it one of the deadliest models in the game.
Tips and Tactics: Use the Half-Orc Assassin as a cunning commander who waits for the moment to strike. Always attack when you have at least one other model in the fray so you can get the Sneak Attack bonuses. With just a little luck, the enemy will never attack you back.
Enemies Who Hate to See It: Most everyone has to worry about the Half-Orc Assassin. A better question is: "Who doesnt worry about the Assassin?" The answer: Undead and constructs. They dont have to fear Sneak Attack damage, and they can shrug off the Assassins blows.
