Mercenary Logo.jpg CG Logo.png Gorman di Wulfe, Rogue Alchemist

Mercenary, & Crucible Guard Partisan, Llaelese Character Solo

Gorman was a student of alchemy held in very high regard by the Golden Crucible until he decided to defy his superiors and get involved in the fight to save Riversmet. In battle he rediscovered himself and found he really enjoyed living life on a knife edge. He abandoned the Crucible and began hiring himself out to anyone provided they were prepared to let him use his alchemical creations.

Thoughts on Gorman di Wulfe, Rogue Alchemist

A Wulfe in Sheep's Clothing - Limited edition sculpt

Gorman di Wulfe, Rogue Alchemist in a nutshell

Gorman's a grenade tosser with multiple debuffing grenades and a cloud when you need it. He helps you hit high DEF targets with Black Oil, damage constructs with Rust Bomb, and take out blast immune targets with his Acid Bomb. He's one of the Merc damage buffers alongside Ragman, Gabriel Throne, Asphyxious4 and Lady Aiyana & Master Holt. He is frequently seen in Mercenary and Crucible Guard armies.

Combos & Synergies

  • Run him next to Major Harrison Gibbs, pop smoke and back up (Gorman is Llaelese and gets Reposition 3".).
  • Blind battle engines for maximum effect.
  • Blind disrupted warjacks to shut them down completely

Drawbacks & Downsides

  • Doesn't deal with Hordes ARM-skew, and has almost nothing against Legion warbeasts, which are immune to blind, though he is immune to fire and corrosion so there's that.
  • Everyone who played Mk2 knows him backwards.
  • Stealth defends him from getting shot early, but he must get really close to use his grenades. So don't expect him to survive for long after he throws his first bomb.
  • Blind is shakeable

Tricks & Tips

  • He can't miss a target with rust or black oil from 4" away due to maximum scattering rules so if you start your activation 10" from your target model, that model is as good as stationary. On the flip side, don't let your opponent's Gorman get within 10" of your expensive, high Def models.

Press Ganger only limited edition sculpt.

Trivia

  • Originally released in Warmachine: Escalation (2004)
  • There are two alternate sculpts:
    • The exclusive model Gorman di "Sea" Wulfe that was an exclusive given only to Press Gangers, and as such is even rarer than 'normal' exclusive models.
    • The limited edition mini-crate model A Wulfe in Sheep's Clothing

Rules Clarifications

RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Attack Type and/or Arcane Savant     (Edit)

  • If you forget to declare your Attack Type before rolling the attack, and you and your opponent can't agree on a fair fix, then the Judge's Policy is that the first listed Attack Type is the one that will be used.
  • If your target can only be targeted by certain kinds of attack (ie a Menoth warjack with Passage), you can first choose the correct Attack Type (ie Magical Damage vs Passage) and then that allows you to target it. The Attack Type selection and target declaration both occur at Step 1 (Refer Appendix A). (Infernal Ruling)
RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Acid Bomb      (Edit)

RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Corrosion      (Edit)

  • If you deploy in corrosion hazard terrain (Acid Pool), then you get corroded before the game starts.
Deploying a model in a hazard counts as being "put into play" in the hazard. Being put into play counts as "entering". When you enter a hazard, you trigger the hazard.
  • A weapon can inflict continuous corrosion without itself being a corrosion damage weapon (for example, the Acidic Touch animus). In this case, the attack can hurt models with Immunity: Corrosion it just won't apply the continuous effect.
RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Black Oil      (Edit)

RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Blind      (Edit)

  • Blind prevents magic attacks. However spell-casters, spell slaves, etc can still cast non-offensive spells.
  • Blind vs Eyeless Sight (Edit)
    • If a model is Blinded, and then given Eyeless Sight, then that model ignores Blind ... but it is technically still Blinded. So if you somehow later lose Eyeless Sight (for instance walking out of the range of Menoth's Sight), it will immediately go back to suffering the effects of Blind. (Infernal Ruling)
    • Also this means stuff that only works vs Blind models (ie Hidden Blade) will still trigger vs a "Was Blinded but then got Eyeless" model.

Rules Clarification : Rust - None yet. (Edit)


RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Stealth      (Edit)

  • Stealth models are not invisible and you can target them - you'll just auto-miss most of the time.
  • You can target them with a charge.
  • You can target them with an AOE, have it auto-miss and scatter, luckily land on top of them anyway, and that will hit them.
RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Fire      (Edit)

  • If you deploy in fire hazard terrain (Burning Earth), then you get set on fire before the game starts.
Deploying a model in a hazard counts as being "put into play" in the hazard. Being put into play counts as "entering". When you enter a hazard, you trigger the hazard.
  • 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)
RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Corrosion      (Edit)

  • If you deploy in corrosion hazard terrain (Acid Pool), then you get corroded before the game starts.
Deploying a model in a hazard counts as being "put into play" in the hazard. Being put into play counts as "entering". When you enter a hazard, you trigger the hazard.
  • A weapon can inflict continuous corrosion without itself being a corrosion damage weapon (for example, the Acidic Touch animus). In this case, the attack can hurt models with Immunity: Corrosion it just won't apply the continuous effect.
RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Alchemical Mask      (Edit)

  • Although a "hazardous cloud" (such as Breath of Corruption) sounds like it would be a gas, it isn't and you don't ignore it. Stuff is gas only if it says it's gas.
  • Alchemical Mask ignores clouds for LOS and the +2 DEF concealment bonus, but a target in a cloud still 'has' concealment so the target can get Prowl to work. (Infernal Ruling)
  • Alchemical Mask does not ignore Syvestro's "Super Stealth" that he gets via Impenetrable Haze. (Infernal Ruling)
RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Smoke Bomb      (Edit)

  • While this model is in the centre of the cloud, no one else can get concealment from the cloud.
  • Cloud radius = 1.5" = 38.1mm. Small base radius = 15mm. That leaves 23.1mm space, which is not enough for another small base.
