Cryx Logo.jpg Bloat Thrall

Cryx Thrall Solo

The bloat thrall is crudely assembled from the bodies of half a dozen men with no regard for anatomy, only usefulness. Necrotechs then select as many as a dozen humans and animals to be skinned alive in order to provide the epidermis necessary to cover these monstrosities. The flesh, left uncured, is stretched over the thrall's mechanikal skeletal armature. Finally, the disgusting necromantic construct is fitted with a thick iron valve mounted directly into its bowels. Before each battle, massive storage tanks are latched to the valve and their bodies are pumped full of caustic sludge. The bloat thrall is an abomination in both form and function, and the armies of the living are wise to fear it.

Thoughts on Bloat Thrall

Bloat Thrall in a Nutshell

Ranged combat solo that plays more akin to an artillery piece. Also basically a big fat Bile Thrall.

Combos & Synergies

  • They kind of need Mobius.
  • Anything that can help them shoot better and hit harder.

Drawbacks & Downsides

  • It's a special order model.
  • Not a great model for its points cost.
    • The lack of speed really hurts in a game as aggressive as Warmachine.
    • It's not great at shooting. It's trying to be a shooty model in a non-shooty faction.
  • Fragile. Don't be fooled by their 8 HP and ARM 14. They will die to any two direct hits and with DEF 10, even the most inaccurate model will hit them on average dice.

Tricks & Tips

  • Activate and shoot it first, before charging your army in. Otherwise you're likely to drift AOEs on top of your own troops.

Rules Clarifications

RC symbol.png

Rules Clarification : Arcing Fire     (Edit)

  • Arcing Fire lets you ignore models but not terrain. You don't ignore clouds, forests or buildings.

Rules Clarification : Corrosion     (Edit)

  • A weapon can inflict continuous corrosion without itself being a corrosion damage weapon (for example, the Acidic Touch animus). In this case, the attack can hurt models with Immunity: Corrosion it just won't apply the continuous effect.

Rules Clarification : Undead - None yet. (Edit)

Rules Clarification : Steady     (Edit)

  • Steady models are still susceptible to other effects of knock-down attacks (if there are any).
    • For example, a steady model hit with a Head butt won't be knocked down but will take damage.
  • A knocked down model that gains Steady will remain knocked down, because the "cannot be knocked down" is not retroactively applied.

Rules Clarification : Death Blast - None yet. (Edit)
