Cask Imp
Grymkin Solo

"Avoid drunken stumbles and tavern brawls, or these intemperate imps will take you all."

Cask imps are mischievous grymkin that take no greater pleasure than bedeviling drunkards. At the Defiers’ commands, cask imps chaotically hurtle themselves at the enemy to control the flow of battle, albeit in an unpredictable and explosive fashion.

Tip !
Cask Imp can be added to your army list in groups of 2 models. They are 2 separate solos (not a unit with 2 members). With FA 3, you can have up to 6 solos.

Abilities[edit]

  • Advance Deployment - Models with advance deployment are placed after normal deployment and may be placed up to 6" further forward.
  • Alcohol-Fueled - The Cask Imp cannot forfeit its Normal Movement. When it makes its Normal Movement, before it moves you must choose its facing. It then advances its SPD +d6˝ in a straight line. If a 6 is rolled, instead of moving the Imp explodes as per Temperamental.
  • Temperamental - This Imp explodes if it contacts another model while it is advancing or if it is knocked down. When the Imp explodes, center a 4˝ AOE on the Imp and models in the AOE suffer an unboostable POW 14 fire damage roll and the continuous fire, then this Imp is RFP'd.

Weapons[edit]

  • Unarmed - This model has no weapons.

Thoughts on Cask Imp[edit]

Cask Imp in a nutshell[edit]

Grymkin's version of Cryx's Scrap Thrall. A dangerous walking bomb, who will be considered mostly for spending your last remaining army point. They are pretty much like ammo, and should be spent like that.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • Mad Caps can put additional Cask Imps into play.

Fire & Forget distraction pieces who cost 0.5 points apiece, they hardly warrant any form of direct support. Rush them forward and hope that they can catch some juicy infantry before blowing up.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • They blow up if they hit friendly models. This can make activation timing a bit of a headache.
  • Anything that causes knockdown, will also cause this model to explode. Beyond that, this model will only explode if it contacts a model while advancing. This means that place effects cannot trigger the explosion.
  • Random SPD value, and blowing up on a roll of 6 makes them extremely unpredictable.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • Activate them first, and get them out of the way. The last thing you want is to activate your units first and run them in front of it.
  • If you do forget to activate them first, remember that you choose their facing before rolling for distance.
  • For Steamroller tie-breakers, your opponent has to kill 2 Imps to score points. But it doesn't matter which "group" they came from, or even if they were put in your army list before the game or put into play during the game.

Rules Clarifications[edit]

RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Unarmed      (Edit)

  • Since this model has no weapons it does not have a melee range.
    • This means it can't engage other models, declare charges, or make free strikes
    • Also it can't gain abilities that require a melee range (such as Ragman granting this model Dark Shroud).
  • However, other models that do have melee weapons can engage this model. So this model can still gain the "target in melee" shooting bonus.

Rules Clarification : Advance Deployment - None yet. (Edit)

Rules Clarification : Alcohol-Fueled      (Edit)

  • If your opponent takes control of the Cask Imp to make an advance, they are not limited by Alochol-Fueled. They can, however, trigger Tempermental as per normal.

Rules Clarification : Temperamental      (Edit)

  • If the Cask Imp contacts a model during its movement, Temperamental will trigger before resolving effects that trigger on ending movement. As such, stuff like Admonition will not trigger at all. (Infernal Ruling)
  • If the Cask Imp does not contact a model, it resolves ending movement like normal and Admonition etc will trigger.
