Set 4: Zombie Minotaur
By Rob Heinsoo
Why It Rocks:
Its the biggest model in the game and its Fearless, so any
opponent who wants to take out the Zombie Minotaur will have to roll a
lot of d20s.
Tips and Tactics:
So the good news is that the Zombie Minotaur is nearly impossible for
enemies to take out. The bad news, of course, is that in Rapid Strike
games, your enemies will try to win by killing all your models except
the Zombie Minotaur. What do you do about that?
is to play with ranged attack models and put the Zombie Minotaur in front
of them -- your enemies have to get past the Zombie to stop the rain of
arrows. Another option is to use the Zombie Minotaur as a bodyguard for
spellcasters, especially for the Human Shadow Priest. The Priests
sound burst spells cant stun the Zombie, since all Undead
are immune to stun.
Enemies Who Hate
to See It: The Zombie Minotaur intimidates warbands composed entirely
of high-value models that lack cannon fodder to throw against the Undeads
Reach 1" opportunity attack.
