Good old Butcher does what Butcher does best: Wrecking face. He's an easily deliverable combat solo that will leave a dent in anything he gets his hands on, and he offers some very good utility to any Wolves of Winter theme list by bringing Dispel, so he can be put on duty to strip pesky upkeeps from enemy models or units.
For lack of better info, the RQ summary is: Orsus is a Fighter class Hero that excels at knocking out multiple enemies in a single turn. Thanks to his Berserk ability, Orsus doesn’t just attack one other Hero in the arena; he attacks every Hero around him. Additionally, as he takes damage, he gets stronger, making him a threat that must be dealt with quickly before he gets out of hand.

Khador Logo.jpg Orsus the Chained

Khador Doom Reaver Character Solo

The most infamous warcaster to ravage the Iron Kingdoms, Khador’s Orsus Zoktavir lost his mind when Lola, his beloved battle axe, was destroyed in battle. Unable to lead, Orsus was stripped of his station and for his remaining days was sentenced to serve as one of the Empire’s notorious doom reavers—penitent criminals chained to the arcane weapons that drive them into a berserker rage in battle. With his nation in shambles, Orsus now offers his formidable combat skills to fortune hunters while secretly on a quest to recover his long-lost Lola.

Understanding
the Statblock
  • Riot Quest - Although this model has rules which allow it to be played in Warmachine and Hordes, it was primarily designed for the Riot Quest game. RQ is set in an alternate timeline where the Infernals won the war. Some of the RQ models have a deliberately goofy aesthetic.

Abilities

  • Tough - When this model is disabled, roll a d6. On a 5 or 6, remove 1 damage point from this model; it is no longer disabled and becomes knocked down. While knocked down this model loses Tough.
  • Berserk - When this model destroys one or more models with a melee attack during its Combat Action, immediately after the attack is resolved it must make one additional melee attack against another model in its melee range.
  • Blood Bath - This model cannot become knocked down. If it is hit by an enemy attack at any time except while it is advancing, after the attack is resolved this model is pushed d3" in a direction determined by the deviation template, then you can choose its facing. After pushed as a result of Blood Bath, this model can make one basic melee attack against an enemy model.
  • Carapace - This model gains +4 ARM against ranged attack damage rolls.
    This rule changed 2019.07. It no longer works vs free strikes.
  • Relentless Charge - While advancing as part of a charge, a model with Relentless Charge gains Pathfinder.
  • Spell Ward - This model cannot be targeted by spells.

Weapons

  • Fell Lola - 2" reach, POW 8, P+S 16 melee attack
    • Damage Type: Magical
    • Weapon Master - When attacking with this weapon, add an additional die to its damage rolls.
    • Dispel - When this weapon hits a model/unit, upkeep spells and animi on that model/unit immediately expire.
  • Gauntlet - 0.5" reach, POW 4, P+S 12 melee attack
    • Beat Back - Immediately after a basic attack with this weapon is resolved during this model's Combat Action, the enemy model hit can be pushed 1" directly away from the attacking model. After the enemy model is pushed, the attacking model can advance up to 1" directly toward it.

Thoughts on Butcher4

Recent Release icon.jpg

New model - This article is a Work In Progress
This model has only recently been released, and the content in the "Thoughts On" section is based more on theory-machine than actual gameplay experience.

Please don't delete this warning unless you (1) have played several games with the final rules (games with CID rules don't count) and (2) you've reviewed this article and it mostly(★) matches your experiences.

(★) Bearing in mind that other editors may make suggestions you don't think are the "best" but that doesn't make them "wrong". Don't delete stuff just because you disagree with it, please.

Butcher4 in a nutshell

Good old Butcher does what Butcher does best: Wrecking face. He's an easily deliverable combat solo that will leave a dent in anything he gets his hands on, and he offers some very good utility to any Wolves of Winter theme list by bringing Dispel, so he can be put on duty to strip pesky upkeeps from enemy models or units.

Combos & Synergies

  • Sorscha1 - She makes him DEF 16 ARM 18 with 10 boxes against shooting, which is to say: Not worth shooting at. This, combined with Spell Ward, means he pretty much has to be taken down in melee.
  • Greylord Ternion - They can give him a Blizzard cloud replicating the above in theme.
  • Malakov2 - He can stealth him if you give him a cloud to stand in (Veil of Mist is also a nice movement buff) and his feat and Blood Bath both trigger at the same time, letting you choose which to resolve first (you still get both), this can set him op for some choice Throat Cutting.
  • Vlad2 - He lets him boost attack or damage rolls on his already ludicrous combat profile with Arcane Might.
  • The Koldun Lord and Void Archon are in theme damage buffs that make him hit as hard as a heavy warjack, on top of him being a Weapon Master.

Drawbacks & Downsides

Tricks & Tips

His Blood Bath ability has since been changed from development to now be a push instead of advance so he does not cause free strikes against himself.
