  • Herne
    • Officer symbol.jpg Officer
    • Artillerist (★ Action) - RNG CMD. Target friendly Faction model gains +2 RAT when making its next AOE ranged attack this turn. If the attack does not directly hit, you can reroll the direction and/or distance of its deviation. Each roll can be rerolled only once as a reasult of Artillerist.


  • Herne
    • Pistol - 8" range, POW 10 ranged attack.
    • Axe - 0.5" reach, P+S 9 melee attack.
  • Jonne
    • Barage Arquebus - 12" range, 3" AOE, POW 14 ranged attack.
      • Scattershot (★ Attack) - To make this attack, Jonne & Herne must be in B2B. Make a basic ranged attack, determine the point of impact, then roll for two more 3" AOEs that scatter from there. Models in an AOE are hit and suffer POW 7 blast damage.
    • Great Axe - 1" reach, P+S 13 melee attack.

Theme Forces

  • Other Factions
    • Mercenary models can be hired by other Factions. Normally those Factions' themes will have a limit on how many models they can hire. Refer to #Other Theme Forces, below.
    • Aside from that, there are a few themes that will change what Faction this model counts as (and thus what "friendly Faction only" buffs it can receive). They are:

Thoughts on Herne & Jonne

Herne & Jonne in a Nutshell

Herne and Jonne are an anti-infantry unit with a bit of suppport tossed in in the form of Artillerist. In the right matchups, they are great, though such matchups are not common.

Combos & Synergies

  • Durgen Madhammer for lots of blast fun
  • Remember that Herne's Artillerist ability doesn't have to be used on Jonne - Herne works well with other sources of AoEs.
  • Before the Siege Crawler and Horgenhold Artillery became prominent, General Ossrum often cast Fire For Effect on them.

Drawbacks & Downsides

  • Blasts don't kill much other than light infantry
  • Because light infantry are so vulnerable to blasts, most people build lists with ways to allow their infantry to shrug them off either through Dig In, Iron Flesh, Recursion or Unhallowed.

Tricks & Tips

  • Herne doesn't have to use Artillerist on Jonne.
  • Firing at very short ranges can sometimes pay off. A POW 7 blast is unlikely to hurt either of them, but often will softer targets like Satyxis, Eyriss, or other stealthy models that might be lurking.
  • Speculative shots can be well worth it as long as you have no light infantry likely to be hit; with the initial scatter and the extra blasts you have a good chance of something interesting happening.
  • If there's a big target in the centre of the enemy lines you can aim for it and hope for useful scatters.
  • The extra AOEs are part of the original attack (not additional attacks) therefore Jonne is a great target for something that buffs your "first" or "next" attack. ie Fire for Effect from Ossrum.

Rules Clarifications

RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Officer      (Edit)

  • Even if they're not on the Officer's card, an Officer can give (and benefit from) any non-standard orders that are on the unit's card (such as Shield Wall). Refer main rulebook.
  • When the Officer dies, the Leader model becomes the new Unit Commander (you don't get to choose).
  • But if your unit doesn't include a Leader model, then you do get to choose any of the remaining models to be the new Unit Commander. You don't swap the model, but it may be worth putting a token down so you can tell that grunt apart.

Rules Clarification : Tough - None yet. (Edit)

RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Artillerist and/or Lucky Shot and/or Spotter     (Edit)

  • This ability doesn't work on weapons with AOE (★) weapons (such as Old Witch2). (Infernal Ruling)
  • Roll both direction and distance, then choose which (if any) you want to reroll, then reroll those.
    Don't do something like roll direction, then re-roll it, then roll distance, etc.

Rules Clarification : Scattershot      (Edit)

  • All three AOEs can benefit from Artillerist and/or Fire For Effect.
  • The additional shots deviate the full d6" regardless of the original range. (refer Tactical Tip)
  • A model in more than one AOE will take a damage roll from each AOE. (refer Tactical Tip)
  • You don't halve the POW 7 blast damage - it is already blast damage.
