Our first valour Anvilborn piece, our first
anvilborn rare, and my first valour, AND rare!
Alright, so what's an Archangel? The obvious
answer is that it's a angel that is more angely
than the others. They appear most often in
Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and are heard
and named, but not described. They are depicted
in art as having bigger wings and extra eyes.
They are not nearly as cool as the multi-winged
Seraphium, in my opinion, who already got a
representive in the Chrysotic Plague Seraph.
Tommy refers to a tommygun, which is what this
bad boy totes around. To the figure!
Tommy is a 11VV rare, with 4 power, 8 def, 8
life. He has reinforce valour and double
multiblade mass wound 4. Let's discuss.
He is more fragile than I'd like him to be, but
this is because he has abilities coming out his
ears and the power to back it up. Something had
to go SOMEWHERE. So he's an 8/8. That costs 11.
Reinforce is great, make no mistake, because it
lets you plunk down a heavy right where and when
you need it. Mass wound is interesting, and fits
right into the other damage abilities that
valour has got, like stalwart and heroics.
Just imagine - You're at 4 turns, your
opponent's at 5. He made a play for your back
row that you managed to disrupt, but not before
he scored a couple turns just from owning the
middle row. You've got one Ardent Zungar in the
center cell facing down all 4 of your opponent's
passion fatties, who've just gotten back from
being disrupted. You rolled 5 on inititive, he
rolled 4. You spend your 2 extra spawn points to
divebomb Tommy here to the center cell, and open
up in your first action. Passion fatties get
shot full of holes. Your Archangel Tommy comes
to life and blows the smoke out of his barrel.
Well, that was fun, wasn't it? Honestly, I think
he's too expensive and too fragile to be usable.
He will not survive much longer than a turn,
because he is too damn nasty to live. My advice
is if you want to try him out, bring bodyguards
to make him just a bit more survivable, skirmish
to let him get more sweet, sweet mass wounds
off, and some passion so he's helping you roll
tons of dice.
