Ok, so we have rounded up all the information we can from the upcoming Warmachine Colossal’s so we can start to meta the environment once more!
The new toys on the block. These gargantuan models look amazing and everyone is praying that the rules match up to the same inspection. So what do we know up to now?
DISCLAIMER – All the information below is gathered from whipsers in the wind and secret notes passed around – as such it could/could not be true so take it with a pinch of salt!
Focus – They can be allocated 3 focus a turn like a regular warjack. Unless they have special rules they don’t generate their own focus per turn and they also cannot be Jackmarshalled.
Battlegroup – They are counted as part of the battlegroup and classed as a Huge Based Warjack – all very important for what spells effect them. They can be bonded.
Damage – Little confusion here but the basics are this: Damage wraps within left/right arc grid then transfers to the next once full, d6 to determine column. If an attacker has its base in both the left/right arc they can choose which side to damage. Back arc you can also choose the left/right arc.
Continuous effects, damage without a point of origin and damage not from an attack, etc. are basically randomised with a 2 step process.
Attacks – First up power attacks that come in 2 forms:
- Power Strike – Open Fist needed, basically a Slam without the direct line restrictions/movement.
- Sweep – Thresher like attack
- Slam Power Attack Revisited – 2″ extra on all slams
The Colossals can also make ranged attacks while engaged like Battle Engines.
They all have 2″ Reach as standard.
All seem to be FA2.
Here are all the elf spoilers that we have managed to dig around and find – in one nice place!
