AoS Chaos Scaven Skryre Warlock Engineer and Arch-Warlock 

Age of Sigmar Chaos Skaven Skryre Warlock Engineer

In the Skryre Skaven army the Warlocks are part engineer and part wizard. Warlock Engineer Tactics The Warlock Engineers have two main uses. The first is using their Warlock Pistol they can offer some covering fire as your clanrats some cover as they engage with the enemy, the other is as a wizard casting and unbinding spells. The Warlock Engineer does have a melee weapon, but he is far more useful behind the front line than he is in combat. The Warlock Pistol is a one attack 9″ ranged weapon with the usual 3+,4+ to hit and wound (33.33% chance of wounding). So don’t depend on it wounding. However if it does wound then the -1 rend and D3 wounds will bite. Skaven Skryre Warlock Engineer Magic The Skaven Warlock Engineer can dispel one enemy spell if they are in range during the enemy command phase.

Warlock Skeetch screeched with pure delight as his new creation rolled out of the workshop. He had harnessed the green energy from a warpstone to create a bolt of lightning that will fry anything in its path. “Behold the Warp Lightning Cannon!” The assembled throng gasped in awe at the new contraption as Skeetch’s assistants swung the spot lamp  lights on to the prized exhibit. “This weapon will rip through our enemies and bring glory to Clan Skryre, and the riches that follow!” Turning to his assistants, “light it up!” There was a crackle from the warpstone as it changed from a dull green glow to an ever brighter intensity, then all of a sudden lightning shot out at the first row of spectators, followed almost immediately by a colossal bang and plumbs of smoke.
