Protectorate Deliverer Solo

Few deliverers survive long enough to gain true mastery of the weapons they wield, but those who do can earn the distinguished title of arms master, directing their charges in combat from the back lines. Tasked with the upkeep and repair of Skyhammer rockets and Sunburst artillery, they also train the faithful in the use of these devastating weapons.

Thoughts on Deliverer Arms Master

Deliverer Arms Master in a nutshell

The Deliverer Arms Master is a solo that helps with the Protectorate's artillery, making it more accurate or able to fire over targets. He also buffs other Deliverer models, but still isn't good enough to make individual Skyhammers accurate.

Combos & Synergies

  • Deliverer Sunburst Crew loves everything that the Arms Master can bring, giving them a bonus to hit and arcing fire.
  • Deliverer Skyhammers can profit from either of his actions. Although if you're having them CRA often, you probably don't really need this guy. The re-roll can be situationally excellent if you whiff on an important target, just make sure the leader of the CRA (the guy actually making the attack and damage roll) is the target of the re-roll ability.
    • Add the Eye of Menoth buff, from either Severius0 or Severius1, will basically eliminate their Inaccurate modifier.
  • Any warjack with a powerful AOE will like arcing fire, most notably the Redeemer, the Vanquisher, and both colossi.

Drawbacks & Downsides

  • Deliverer Skyhammers still can't hit the broad side of a barn door without a CRA even with his help.
  • It's only little more expensive to get a second sunburst crew rather than the Arms Master.
  • His personal combat potential is low.

Tricks & Tips

  • If you have multiple Deliverer models/units, you don't need to have all of them hang out in his 9" bubble. Have him hang out near one group and then, after that group has activated and attacked, activate this guy and move the buff towards the second group.

Rules Clarifications

Rules Clarification : Fire     (Edit)

  • Moving into "Shallow water" standard terrain does not cause continuous fire to expire. It's magic fire.
    • You can always use non-standard terrain if you agree with your opponent before the game starts, however.
  • A weapon can inflict continuous fire without itself being a fire damage weapon (for example, the Helios's fists). In this case, the attack can hurt models with Immunity:Fire it just won't apply the continuous effect.
  • In terms of which player's clock is running down during the Maintenance Phase: The active player will roll for expiration of all the continuous effects. Then the inactive player will roll for all the damages of the continuous effects. (Judge Ruling)

Rules Clarification : Tough - None yet. (Edit)
Rules Clarification : Combat Coordination - None yet. (Edit)

Rules Clarification : Arcing Fire     (Edit)

  • Arcing Fire lets you ignore models but not terrain. You don't ignore clouds, forests or buildings.

Rules Clarification : Veteran Leader     (Edit)

  • Veteran Leaders don't give themselves the buff, because of the "other models within ..." clause.
    • Although if you have two models giving out the buff, then they can give it to each other. (Locked thread)
  • Some versions say "friendly" and some don't. Regardless, Veteran Leader only buffs friendly models. (Infernal Ruling)
