Protectorate Deliverer Unit

Brave citizen-soldiers of the Protectorate, deliverers fire their deadly Skyhammer rockets in coordinated volleys. The shrapnel-filled explosions that ensue indiscriminately shred troop formations, punishing non-believers with the hand of judgment.

Thoughts on Deliverer Skyhammers

Deliverer Skyhammers in a nutshell

Deliverers are cheap conscripts carrying long range but inaccurate rockets to carpet bomb the enemy.

They can also deliver a hell of a CRA punch with one of the longest ranges in the game.

Combos & Synergies

  • Deliverer Arms Master at least makes them slightly less inaccurate.
  • Their god-awful accuracy is usually not a factor against knocked-down targets. Kreoss 1's feat can help them, as well as power attacks from jacks, that cause knockdown on targets. Fire onto targets up-close your warjacks, the blast damage is so low, that it will bounce off from your jacks.
  • Severius1 is a universal turd-polisher. With Eye of Menoth, and the Arms Master's help, the aiming Deliverers technically negate the Inaccurate bonus. The Arms Master can also give them Combat Coordination, which is a quasi Combined Arms, with the added bonus of occasionally re-rolling damage rolls.

Drawbacks & Downsides

  • They're a special order model.
  • They are very sensitive to casualties as they need to be making CRAs and triggering Rocket Volley to be useful.
  • Precision isn't their thing
  • Rolling deviations can use up a lot of your clock.

Tricks & Tips

  • Remember, you apply the CRA bonus after halving for blast damage.
    • A three-man CRA is a 4" AOE that does POW 8 blast damage
    • A five-man CRA is a 5" AoE that does POW 10 blast damage (and might even hit).
    • A ten-man CRA is a 5" AoE that does POW 15 blast damage (and will probably hit).
  • Arcing fire allows you to target the squishy models in backlines. If a caster is hiding behind a larger base, use a ten-man CRA to target the larger base and hit the caster with POW 15 blast damage.
  • Have them use mass CRAs turn after turn to soften up heavies and decimate units.
  • ARM 17 is the tipping point where it becomes more damaging to use a full ten-man CRA instead of 2 five-man CRAs at higher ARMs.
  • Vindictus protect them from charges and non-magical ranged weapons with his feat for a key turn and can speed them up, giving them a massive 23-inch threat range.

Rules Clarifications

Rules Clarification : Inaccurate - None yet. (Edit)

RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Combined Ranged Attack      (Edit)

  • CRA cannot target models in melee ... unless the target is a huge-based model or the attacker has War-Tempered.
  • If you give the attack-leader a buff to their attack (such as Guidance) then that buff applies to the combined attack (even though the other participants don't have the buff). (Locked thread)
  • Assault & CRA (Edit)
    • You cannot mix Combined Range Attacks with Assault shots, as CRA works during your combat action and Assault shots occur before it. (Infernal Ruling)

Rules Clarification : Arcing Fire      (Edit)

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

Rules Clarification : Rocket Volley - None yet. (Edit)
