Understanding
the Statblock

Abilities

  • Cloud Cover (★ Action) - Place a 3" AOE cloud effect in play with its center point within 1" of the Leader. If the Grunt is B2B with the Leader, place a 5" AOE instead. Stays in play for one round.

Weapons

  • Hand Weapon - 0.5" reach, P+S 5 melee weapon. Yes, P+S five - it's mostly there for show.

Theme Forces

Minions

Non-Minion themes

This unit may be used in the following theme forces without using their single minion unit option:

As a minion unit, they can also be taken in a bunch of other Faction's themes as their single allowed minion unit. Refer to #Other Theme Forces.

Thoughts on Swamp Gobber Bellows Crew

Swamp Gobber Bellows Crew in a nutshell

It's a cheap maker of clouds. Do you want to block LOS? Do you want to trigger Prowl on your own models? Do you want to ... no, that's it. That's all they do.

Combos & Synergies

  • Anything you own that needs clouds.
  • Anything your enemy has that hates clouds.

Drawbacks & Downsides

  • Dies to pretty much anything.
  • Doesn't fight for jack diddly.
  • Pointless against Eyeless Sight and similar Category: Anti-Cloud abilities.

Tricks & Tips

  • At DEF 15 (17 vs shooting via the cloud) they can be infuriatingly hard to kill for their cost, so use them to block charge lanes.
  • As a unit, they score in circular zones in SR2018; and for 2 points they probably are the cheapest choice for that.
