Wyrd Games just previewed a new unit for The Other Side. Let’s take a look at how the King’s Empire plans to keep the enemy at bay.
The King’s Empire is known for its mighty guns that keep the enemy at a distance.Their mastery over gunpowder allows them to vanquish the monsters of Malifaux not with tricks or magic but with steel, lead, and overwhelming firepower. Let’s take a look at one of the newest and deadliest big guns on the block for The Other Side from our friends over at Wyrd.
One of the most defining features of the King’s Empire is their widespread use of artillery on the battlefield. Their investment into firearms has paid dividends in both equipment for normal troops and the development of large-scale weapons like the howitzer. By achieving superior range over their opponents, the King’s Empire has managed to keep casualties down through the application of superior firepower. Typical Artillery Teams are made up of three soldiers: a gunner and two loaders. Even so, each member of the team trains in each position, allowing them to function even after they’ve suffered casualties.
On the tabletop, Artillery Teams are very long ranged units with poor accuracy. Their incredible Strength easily makes up for this, though, and they can comfortably sit on the backline and shell enemy troops all game long.
Make sure to check out the Wyrd forums to discuss your plans for the Artillery Team!
