Khador Greylord Solo - (Warcaster Attachment)

The Greylords Covenant has long served the Khadoran Army by assisting in the detection and education of warcasters, knowing the best methods to unleash their arcane powers. Adjuncts are specially trained arcanists assigned to directly lend support to warcasters on the battlefield. In addition to their elemental mastery of cold, an adjunct can help sustain a warcaster’s powers, extend their reach, and unravel incoming mystical assaults.

Understanding

Abilities

  • Attached - Before the start of the game, attach warcaster to a friendly Faction warcaster/warlock for the rest of the game. Each Faction warcaster/warlock can only have one model/unit attached to it.
  • Cold Imm symbol.jpg Immunity: Cold
  • Arcane Assist - If its warcaster/warlock is in this model's command range during your Control Phase, the warcaster / warlock can upkeep one spell for free.
  • Magic Ability [ 6 ] - This model can cast spells. Normally this uses up the model's Combat Action and as such is limited to one spell per activation, but exceptions do exist.
  • Spiritual Conduit - While its warcaster is in this model's command range, when the warcaster casts a spell and is the point of origin for the spell, the spell gains +2 RNG.

Thoughts on the Greylord Adjunct

Greylord Adjunct in a Nutshell

The Greylord Adjunct is focused on arcane support of his army as well as his warcaster. His primary support spell Guidance is a much-awaited way for Khador to have wider access to Magical damage type weapons, while also giving an option for anti-cloud walls. In addition, Khador warcasters are often focused starved, so as long as your 'caster has at least one upkeep spell that you want to keep out, it might be worth 4pts just for the extra Focus every turn.

Combos & Synergies

Casters

  • Sorscha1's feat depends on LOS to work, but with Guidance's help nothing will stop you from freezing a bunch of Trenchers to death who thought to be safe behind their cloud walls.
  • Zerkova1 can gain 17" range on her Hex Blast with him and her lens.
  • Zerkova2 can make him cast twice on feat turn.
  • Old Witch1 not only appreciates the increased spell range, but the Adjunct's Blizzard spell is an easy way to trigger her Prowl ability and grant her Stealth (or cast it on Scrapjack for the same reason). Stacking Guidance with Weald Secrets makes the target model ignore clouds, concealment, cover, stealth, incorporeal and Hymn of Shielding at the same time, which can come in handy.

Other

  • Ranged solos or warjacks, so you can Guide them to shoot through clouds. Especially good with a high volume of ranged attacks or Arcing Fire, e.g. Victor.
  • Guidance is "Friendly", not "Firendly Faction", so it can be used on powerful ranged mercenary models like the Thamarite Archon.
  • The Koldun Lord gives him Battle Wizard, now whether you should charge him into the enemy is another question... more importantly, however, the Lord can copy the Adjunct's spells with Loremaster.

Drawbacks & Downsides

  • A pure support model - Although he has offensive abilities, using his spray or sword leaves him exposed (and the sword is only P+S 9 to boot).
  • Competes with the cheaper War Dog, which to be fair isn't much of an issue as they do very different things. But if you like the doggo you'll be sad.
  • Very similar to Sylys, and some spell-focused 'casters would prefer the extra spell attack/damage dice to the Adjunct's abilities. On the plus side, the Adjunct doesn't take your mercenary solo spot in a theme, and eyeless sight is a good buff for any spellcaster, too.
  • With an Eyeless Sight-granting objective in the Steamroller 2019 scenarios, his contribution isn't as necessary. Though it can be nice to have two sources of the buff.

Tricks & Tips

  • He has a POW 12 spray. If he survives until late game and there is no one else left for him to support, use him to kill some fools before he dies.
  • In Wolves of Winter he can be taken for free.

Rules Clarifications

RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Attached      (Edit)

  • Attached models are not (normally) part of the warcaster's/warlock's battlegroup. (Infernal Ruling)
(You need the Companion rule to become part of the battlegroup).
  • Thus, attachments are not affected by battlegroup-only effects such as Energizer (unless they're a Companion).

Rules Clarification : Cold - None yet. (Edit)

RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Arcane Assist and/or Arcane Support     (Edit)

  • Arcane Assist: The caster needs to be in the support model's CMD range.
  • Arcane Support: The support model needs to be in the caster's CTRL range.
RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Magic Ability      (Edit)

  • Combat Action
    Nearly all Magic Ability spells require the spellcaster to use their Combat Action to cast the spell. As such it is not an "at any time" ability (like it is when warcasters/warlocks cast spells). This means ...
    • You must complete your movement before you use a MA.
    • 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)
    • 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. Because a charge must (almost always) be followed by a melee attack.
  • Non-Combat Action
    There are a few models that can use a Magic Ability at any time (eg Geomancy and Necromancy), or can cast a spell "for free" under specific conditions that would otherwise require their Combat Action (eg Battle Wizard and Combat Caster). These models get around all the restrictions listed above.

Rules Clarification : Blizzard - None yet. (Edit)

Rules Clarification : Eyeless Sight      (Edit)

  • A model that ignores Stealth must ignore both aspects: both (1) the auto-missing, and (2) the 'not counting as an intervening model' parts.
    • This can have some strange interactions with casters & channelers, if one has Eyeless Sight and one does not. There are examples on the Category:Channeler page.

Rules Clarification:  : Magical Damage      (Edit)
(Click Expand to read)

* The "Damage Type: Magical" is not inherited by "secondary" damage from a weapon. That is, stuff like arcs (Electro Leap) or hazards (Scather). (Infernal Ruling)
  • All spells have "Damage Type: Magical" (refer errata).
    • This is inherited by "immediate" secondary damage (such as Eruption of Spines). (Infernal Ruling)
    • and might be inherited by "lingering" secondary damage (see below).
  • If a spell leaves a template in play that does damage to models that walk around in it, then:
    • if it is not described as a hazard it will do magical damage to models that walk around in it. (Example: Razor Wall)
    • if it is a hazard then it will not do magical damage to models that walk around in it. Instead, it does whatever damage type is specified by the spell description. (Example: Breath of Corruption).
    • (Infernal Ruling)
  • If a weapon/spell includes Magic Damage and another kind of elemental damage it will still damage Incorporeal models. Incorporeal models are not affected by the rule "if an attack does multiple types of damage and a model is immune to at least one it is immune to the entire attack."
    The phrase "immune to non-magical damage" should be interpreted as "immune to damage that doesn't include Damage Type: Magical" (not interpreted as "has immunity to Corrosion and Electricity and Cold and etc.")
