Protectorate Solo

Disdaining weapons and wearing little armour, these expert pugilists effortlessly evade rifle fire, deflect enemy blades, and counterattack with a series of rapid kicks and punches. By the time a monk reaches the vaunted rank of allegiant, he has fused his faith with unwavering discipline and absolute self-control to become one of the most dangerous weapons in the Protectorate arsenal.

Thoughts on Allegiant of the Order of the Fist[edit]

Allegiant of the Order of the Fist in a nutshell[edit]

A cheap combat solo that moves fast and hits hard. Warjacks may not tremble at the monk's approach, but nearly everything else will. It is fast, and under its stance (which it is likely always using on the approach) very difficult to remove, without expending more resources than his point cost may seem to warrant. This usually means unboosted shots will rarely target the monk as they are most likely going to miss him, under his stance, and allow him to move up a lot closer to their front lines.

He is excellent at mopping up infantry, fearlessly heading deep into enemy territory, and also great at contesting or holding scenario objectives. He is also good at hunting enemy solos. The Allegiant has a wide utility in almost any Protectorate list, and for his very economical price he is worth taking whenever you can. In fact take two!

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • Slow moving models - the Allegiant is a jammer who wants the enemy to come to you.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • At MAT 7 and effective POW 12 the Allegiant is not terribly destructive.
  • Any anti-infantry tech that doesn't have to roll to hit (e.g. Electro-Leaps or blast damage) are likely to kill the Allegiant.
  • The Allegiant is surprisingly slow as if he runs or charges he can't use his stance
  • Out of stance he's a walking casualty (but this can be worth it to kill a less cheap solo)

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • The Allegiant normally doesn't get to attack if in stance, and if not in stance is basically a casualty. So draw the enemy onto you.
  • Walk into the way of enemy jacks/beasts; the allegiant is really annoying to remove.
  • Try and engage enemies with your stance move if you get it - that gives you the flexibility to either stance/attack/sidestep or move/stance next turn.
  • He works better when alone - your opponent's best move is often to ignore the Allegiant, and if that flank can just kill everything else you don't get work out of your stance. You want to force your enemy to take attacks against him.

Rules Clarification : Shifting Sands Stance      (Edit)

  • The free move triggers at step 13. You might still be hit by an AOE, electro-leaps, etc before getting a chance to step away.

Rules Clarification : Side Step      (Edit)

  • You can't trigger Side Step by hitting friendly models.
  • You can't trigger Side Step from additional attacks that you buy, or out-of-activation attacks (such as free strikes).
  • If you have multiple initial attacks, you have to step after each one. You can't "save up" all your side steps then get a single big 4" or 6" move.

Rules Clarification : Steady      (Edit)

  • Steady models are still susceptible to other effects of knock-down attacks (if there are any).
    • For example, a steady model hit with a Head butt won't be knocked down but will take damage.
  • A knocked down model that gains Steady will remain knocked down, because the "cannot be knocked down" is not retroactively applied.
