Cryx Logo.jpg Scrap Thrall

Cryx Thrall Solo

Scrap thralls are made by Necrotechs from heaps of bone and metal taken from corpses and destroyed 'jacks. Once animated, these thralls shamble forth as delivery vehicles for necrotite-enchanced bombs.

Info icon.png

When you go to physically buy Scrap Thralls, you get a pack with 3 models. They are added to your army in "sets" of 3 models. They are 3 separate solos (they are not a unit with 3 members).

Weapons

  • Mechano-Claw - 0.5" reach, POW 4, P+S 8 melee weapon
    • Death Burst (★ Attack) - This model makes a melee attack. (HIT) If that attack hits, instead of dealing damage normally, center a 4" AOE on the model hit and RFP this model. The model hit suffers an POW 16 damage roll. (MISS) If the attack misses, center the AOE on this model and RFP this model. (BLAST) Other than the model directly hit, models in the AOE are hit and suffer an unboostable POW 8 blast damage roll. Detonation damage is unboostable.

Thoughts on Scrap Thrall

Scrap Thrall in a Nutshell

Scrap Thralls are a very cheap option. They are the cheapest models in the game and this shows in their stats & abilities (or lack thereof). But if you need some cheap troops to cast spells on, or just like the idea of exploding troops, or a cheap option to block charge lanes, Scrap Thralls are your men.

Combos & Synergies

Being the extremely cheap units, this actually makess them useful to a number of caster who sacrifice their own troops.

  • You can use them as Sacrificial Pawns for Terminus.
  • They can be used as targeting beacons for AoE spells and attacks against units who otherwise cannot be hit.
  • Fuel for Goreshade2's feat.
  • Fuel for Mortenebra's Sacrificial Lamb spell.
  • Fuel for Skarre1's Ritual Sacrifice spell.

Drawbacks & Downsides

  • You can't leave them too close to your own lines, because they'll get exploded by enemy ranged attacks And Cryx infantry generally don't have enough ARM to survive random explosions.
  • You can't leave them too close to each other, because they'll daisy chain with the explosion of one causing others to explode (unless that was your plan).
  • They're great against enemy low-ARM infantry, but typically such enemy infantry has enough SPD to simply avoid Scrappies.
  • You can't use Death Burst on a free strike.

Tricks & Tips

  • Run Scrap Thralls into the enemy, then shoot them in the back.
    • Set up a daisy chain, so that one exploding will set the next off.
    • Shoot them with Bloat Thralls, for even more AOE fun.
    • Shoot them with AOE spells while they stand next to Spell Warded targets.
