| Ogrun Bokur |
Without a Korune to swear loyalty to, many young Ogrun look towards the battlefields of man to showcase their martial abilities and draw the attention of a worthy lord. Hiring themselves to individuals, those lucky enough to broker a deal and fall under a Bokur's protection soon discover it is time and money very well spent. As there is little left of those unfortunate souls that fall to the enormous polearms and shields of these beasts.
- Mercenary - This model will work for Crucible Guard, Cygnar, Cryx, or Khador.
- Minion - This model will work for Circle, Legion, Skorne, or Trollbloods.
- Client - Before the start of the game, choose one friendly warcaster, warlock, solo, or unit commander to be the Bokur's client. This model cannot be the client of another Bokur or have the same client as another Bokur. If its client leaves play, the Bokur loses all client benefits even if the client is replaced by another model. While within 6" of its client this model gains +2 to attack and damage rolls. If this model's client has Advance Deployment, this model gains Advance Deployment.
- Shield Guard - Once per round, when a friendly model is directly hit by a non-spray ranged attack during your opponent's turn while within 3" of this model, you can choose to have this model directly hit instead. This model is automatically hit and suffers all damage and effects. This model cannot use Shield Guard while it is incorporeal, knocked down, or stationary.
- Slam Power Attack - This model can make slam power attacks.
- Pole Arm - 2" reach, P+S 15 melee attack.
- Powerful Charge - This model gains +2 to charge attack rolls with this weapon.
- Shield - 0.5" reach, P+S 11 melee attack.
- Other Factions
- Mercenary/Minion 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 Ogrun Bokur
Ogrun Bokur in a Nutshell
You take the Bokur to be a cheap Shield Guard with enough armor from the front to face-tank some incoming fire. Because it is not allowed in Irregulars, it is most often seen in Hammer Strike lists where it is the only solo you can take that plays forward, so you may very well see more than one.
Bokurs are solid melee solos. If he gets a charge and the client bonus he punches above his weight class - comparable to an unbuffed Nomad (12 point heavy warjack).
Whether you decide to use your Client bonus on your caster or someone else, there are essentially two ways to use the Bokur:
- Babysit a backline squishy model the entire game, like your caster, in which case you're probably overpaying for Shield Guard.
- Escort a melee dude up the field, who you'd rather didn't get shot off the board during the approach, and then they can both get busy in melee.
Combos & Synergies
- Make the leader of your Horgenhold Forge Guard your client for a hard hitting combination of models, but don't let the leader model die.
- They can Slam, and the Client bonus will count to the attack and damage rolls for that.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- Kill the client, weaken the Bokur.
- If you keep it back to Shield Guard something then that's a lot of points on babysitting duty.
- One of the few Mercenary models that isn't allowed in The Irregulars theme force.
Tricks & Tips
- If you're not sure who your opponent is going to shoot, put him within 3" of multiple models.
- RAW, the Bokur can be his own client. However there is an Infernal Ruling to say it can't.
- "Bokur" is the title of a voodoo priest (especially one that specializes in darker aspects).
- The Morgul (spoken by Ogrun) word "Bokur" has no apparent connection to the Quor (spoken by Gatormen) word "Bokur".
- Originally released in Warmachine: Superiority (2006)
- This model has a limited edition sculpt, released in 2017.03. It was given to Press Gangers only, when that volunteer service was disbanded. As such, it is even more limited than other limited-edition sculpts.
