Minion Farrow Character Solo - (Warlock Attachment)

The disfigured farrow assistant of Dr. Arkadius, Targ aids his master by tending the violent and unpredictable farrow warbeasts. Although lacking refinement and expertise, Targ has a way with warbeasts. He can push a warbeast to lash out with an unpredictable attack, administer vital medical care to his charges, or provide vital guidance to farrow warbeasts that wander too far from their masters.

Understanding
the Statblock
  • Minion - In a 2+ warlock game, Targ can accompany a minion warlock and work for Circle, Legion, Skorne, or Trollbloods.
  • Attached - Before the start of the game, attach this model to a friendly Minion warlock for the rest of the game. Each Minion warlock can have only one model/unit attached to it.

Tip !
Targ must be attached to a Minion warlock. So, although he can "work for" several factions, that is only applicable if you're playing in 2+ warlock game.

Abilities

  • Tough symbol.jpg Tough
  • Ancillary Attack (★ Action) - RNG 3. Target friendly Faction warbeast. If the warbeast is in range, it immediately makes one basic melee or ranged attack. A warbeast can be targeted by an Ancillary Attack special action only once per turn.
  • Herding - While this model is in its warlock's control range, that warlock can force, leech, reave, heal and transfer damage to warbeasts in its battlegroup that are in this model's command range.
  • Medicate [d3] (★ Action) - RNG B2B. Target friendly Faction living warbeast. If it is in range, remove d3 damage points from it.

Weapons

  • Butcher Knife - 0.5" reach, P+S 10 backup melee weapon.

Theme Forces

  • Other Factions
    • None - Unlike other Minion solos, Targ cannot be taken in non-Minion themes because of the limitation of his Attached rule.

Thoughts on Targ

Targ in a nutshell

He's a support solo. His main ability is anciliary attack.

Combos & Synergies

  • Road Hog - an extra Road Hog spray is probably the best you can get for his cost
  • Ironback Spitter - An extra medium AoE corrosive shot isn't bad either and might actually be better. Who needs artillery?
  • Feralgeist - when the feral joins on to a beast it becomes a minion beast making it a target for Ancillary Attack.
  • Splatter Boar - get more value from lucky shot with 2 shots a turn or just start laying a cloud wall.

Warlocks worth attaching to

  • Sturm & Drang - or more specifically just Sturm, with his shield guard field marshal and deceleration he can look after Targ on the approach, if he is really key to your plans (unlikely but stranger things happen) he also has Vision, to deny damage and TK to pull him out of charge range. The piggy pair also like to run fairly beast heavy so suit what Targ wants to do.

Drawbacks & Downsides

  • Squishy so wants to stay near a beast with a ranged attack.
  • He competes with the Gatorman Soul Slave in the more competitive, beast heavy theme he is apart of. Usually you have to think is a free attack better than a free upkeep and spell slave action - and unless you are bringing some premium guns the answer is usually no.

Tricks & Tips

There's little subtle about him. Pick him if you want to use anciliary attack.

Rules Clarifications

Rules Clarification : Tough - None yet. (Edit)

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 : Ancillary Attack      (Edit)

  • You can't generate bonus attacks (such as Berserk) from an Ancillary Attack, because those bonus attacks are limited to during the attacker's activation.
    • Or, at least, I can't think of a single example which isn't limited.

Rules Clarification : Herding - None yet. (Edit)

RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Medicate      (Edit)

  • You can heal any spiral, they don't all have to be the same spiral.
  • You don't need LOS to the model you're healing.
