| Eilish Garrity, the Occultist |
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.
- 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.
