Mercenary, & Cygnar Partisan, Morrowan Character Cavalry Solo

Gabriel Throne has served the Order of Illumination with honor and distinction for a quarter of a century, becoming a living symbol of both the group’s virtuous principles and its ruthless tactics when routing occult corruption. While he had withdrawn from active duty in recent years to serve as a leader and instructor for the Order, the arrival of infernals on Caen has drawn him forth to take up his sword and pistol once again. His name alone is enough to inspire other Morrowan soldiers, and so long as Throne stands with his sword upraised, the forces of the Prophet will not waver.

Grand Master Gabriel Throne in a nutshell

Gabriel Throne is the leader of the Order of Illumination who offers some basic but powerful battle plans while zipping around on his horse. A backline buffer who can achieve decent results charging into the fray, Gabriel is an integral part of the huge caster independent damage buff stacking achievable in Flames in the Darkness, as well as a welcome addition to the handful of other themes he’s available in.

Combos & Synergies

  • Morrowan models enjoy his tactician, although it can feel somewhat redundant for Precursor Knights with their UA and the flying Archon. It does allow heavy hitters like Gallant to charge into odd places between your models, and it can set up very easy flanks for Constance to try an assassination.
  • Any faction infantry with a single Melee attack reaps the full benefit of stir the blood.
  • Rise provided by the Morrowan Battle Priest becomes far more useful with the tough Gabriel hands out.

Drawbacks & Downsides

  • Large base and middling defensive stats make Gabriel difficult to keep safe.
  • Can provide Pathfinder or his damage boost, so terrain can lower your offensive output significantly.
  • Although worth the points, Gabriel is still an expensive model to field, so having something important for him to be doing every turn is vital.
