Mercenary Logo.jpg Minion Logo.jpg Infernal Logo.jpg Eilish Garrity, the Occultist

Mercenary, & Minion, & Infernal Partisan, Character Solo

An arcanist, scholar, and experienced sellsword, Eilish Garrity of the Black River Irregulars mercenary company now walks a dangerous road to power. Those who confront him in battle discover that his scholarly demeanor belies his potent arcane skill—which some suggest was earned through nefarious means. He insists he is wielding his power for the greater good, though it seems a dark path he treads.

Thoughts on Eilish Garrity

Eilish Garrity in a nutshell

He's a support model specialising in giving your army some anti-spell protection (Arcane Void and Unbinding) and dabbling in buffing (Puppet Master). Last on the list is a boostable Bleed.

Unbinding can be used in an offensive manner (to get rid of the enemy's defensive buffs) but the short range makes that unlikely.

Most likely you're taking him with a very specific target for Puppet Master in mind. He's a very strong pick for many armies.

Combos & Synergies

  • MacBain can feat on him, run him up to something to clear upkeeps and keep him alive.
  • Major Harrison Gibbs or Lynus can heal him after he cut himself for his magic.
  • He's worthy of consideration when you have models that can achieve particularly powerful critical effects. For example, Puppet Master on a Siege Crawler with Fire For Effect is a nearly 70% chance to trigger Stagger.
  • Anything that makes him move farther extends the threat of his upkeep removal. A caster that provides this might be another compelling reason to bring him.
  • Take him with Reinholdt, Gobber Speculator in a Lieutenant Crosse, Resistance Fighter list for an extra shot and a re-roll on most turns, and TWO re-rolls on the turn Gastone goes ham.

Drawbacks & Downsides

  • He's more of a utility piece, so his offensive output is quite poor for a 5 point model and he faces stiff competition from many other Mercenary solos.

Tricks & Tips

Use Drake Macbain's feat to make him unkillable, run him forward. Stand him up with Boomhowler if he is knocked down and have him use Unbinding as a mini-purification on all your opponent's upkeeps.

Trivia

  • Released in the Northkin Expansion (2017.07)
  • He has an alternate sculpt which was released several months before his main sculpt as a baggy attached to No Quarter Prime #1. This sculpt is notable for being inside a rectangular resin sprue with a resin base included.
  • Eilish Garrity is a member of the Black River Irregulars, who feature in several novels and an expansion to the Undercity board game.
  • There is an official short story The Toll by Doug Seacat 2019.06, starring Eilish Garrity and set in the time between the events of the Black Crowns novel and his incarnation as Eilish the Occultist.
  • The fluff reason he is allowed to work for anyone, including the likes of Grymkin and the Retribution, is a bit of handwavium.

Rules Clarifications

RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Arcane Void      (Edit)

  • A caster can stand within the area of multiple Arcane Voids. If they do, they will take multiple damage. (Infernal Ruling)
  • Several spells are target SELF but affect other models (for instance, Flashing Blade). In this case the caster needs to be in the Arcane Voider's CMD range and the location of the other models is irrelevant. (Infernal Ruling)
  • There are a couple of odd spells:
    1. (Primal Shock and Essence Blast) - Both these spells "Choose" model A, then gets to "Target" model B with an attack. In this case you can trigger Arcane Void only when model B is targeted.
    2. (Crevasse) - This spell attacks model A, then gets to use model A to make another attack vs model B. In this case you can trigger Arcane Void only when model A is targeted.
(Infernal Ruling for both of the above.)
RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Gate Walker      (Edit)

RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Magic Ability      (Edit)

  • Almost every magic ability cannot be used on the same turn you charge. Because a charge must (almost always) be followed by a melee attack.
  • Using a Magic Ability counts as a spell, for effects such as Spell Ward, Witch Hunter, etc.
  • Unlike with warcasters/warlocks, using a Magic Ability is not an "any time" ability. This means:
    • You must complete your movement before you use a MA.
    • You cannot make ranged or melee attacks on the same turn you use a MA.
    • You cannot use a MA on the same turn you charge.
    • (Unless, of course, the rules for the specific MA you're using say you can.)
  • A model in a unit cannot use its Combat Action to cast a spell until all members of the unit have completed their movement. (Infernal Ruling)

Rules Clarification : Bleed - None yet. (Edit)

RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Puppet Master      (Edit)

  • Puppet Master can be put on a model in a unit, and it will be applied to the whole unit. However, as soon as any model in the unit chooses to use it then it expires on the entire unit (so really it only affects one model).
  • Puppet Master can be used on "secondary" damage rolls such as Electro Leap, Magic Bullet, etc.
  • It can't be used on "stay in play" damage effects like a Scather's AOE.
  • If you cast Puppet Master on the same model/unit multiple times (eg Dhunian Knot) it doesn't stack, at all. (Infernal Ruling)
RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Unbinding and/or Dissolution     (Edit)

  • The model that takes the d3 damage is the model that controls the spell (not the model that the spell is upon). In other words, the enemy warcaster/warlock.
  • If you dispel two upkeeps, whether it is 2 separate d3 rolls or a d3 roll that is doubled is ... unclear. The answer will affect how much focus/fury the caster has to spend to avoid damage. (Infernal Checking)
  • If the enemy caster has a way of redistributing damage (such as Egregore in the Coven), then you work out the total damage dealt from all upkeeps that expired, before dividing the damage. (Infernal Ruling)
  • There is a discrepancy between the card database and Warroom for Unbinding (both are labeled 2017v1). (Infernal Checking)
  • Unbinding vs Vital Magic (Edit)
  • Anti-Upkeep vs a unit (Edit)
    • If an upkeep is on a unit, then all you need to do is make it expire off any member of the unit and the spell will expire from the entire unit.
    • It doesn't matter if the target is in formation or not. (Locked thread)
    • However, if an upkeep is on a single model within a unit (such as Scything Touch) then you need to dispel it off that particular model to make it dispel. (Infernal Ruling)
  • Unbinding as a spell
    • Some models have Unbinding as a regular action, others have it as a magic ability thus it is a spell. Unbinding doesn't have a target so it gets around anti-magic stuff that triggers at "target" (like Arcane Vortex).
RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Mental Force      (Edit)

  • The damage from Mental Force occurs at Step 12 of the attack sequence (Appendix A).
  • If you use Mental Force on an attack that generates yet more attacks (such as the Gatorman Soul Slave casting Bone Shaker) those extra attacks don't benefit from Mental Force. (Locked thread)
  • Eilish only
    • The heal from his Bleed spell occurs at Step 10a of the attack sequence. That's before damage from Mental Force, so you can't use the heal from Bleed to offset the damage from Mental Force.
