I've been thinking through warcaster synergies with our new lovely Conquest. Please help me figure out who will make this monster sing:
Great synergy with excessive freeze / knockdown. Probably best shooting buff available. Boundless charge improves mobility. Benefits minimally from fog of war (still only DEF 9).
Wow. Huge complementarity with her. warjack bond allows for 4 focus and grants freeze to models that remain in contact. Feat is an absolute killer for hard targets. Shatterstorm is also abusive with the number of attacks available. She also retains freeze abilities of her own for improved targetting.
feat provides huge mobility buff, and conquest reieves big improvements in accuracy with S&P.
Less exciting than pVlad, but Assail allows for d6+4" slams, and hand of fate acts as S&P lite - conquest is an efficient target for it.
Meh. Conquest doesn't really need a big POW buff from feat or Fury. Full throttle is nice for Sweep attacks.
Holy moly - this is a good match up. conquest automatically picks up free power attacks and can get a speed and MAT buff from Conferred rage. This makes Conquest very focus efficient, letting Butcher keep focus for himself. Conquest should also be great at killing stuff to fuel eButcher's feat. Unfortunately, he cant take advantage of the second move on the feat turn.
Superiority is nice. Inhospitable ground also may help in keeping swarms at bay.
Only notable contribution would be Fire for effect on the conquest's main gun. Warjack bond is wasted here.
Surprisingly poor synergy in my opinion. No Tow. Inefficient way to use sidearms. Unearthly rage is a help for melee attack roles, but not really necessary for damage rolls. Only rage buff is from knocking things down with sunder.
Interesting denial capability combining murder of crows with creeping barrage. Augury helps against hiding things. Not particularly exciting.
There is some fun stuff here. Feat is a huge mobility boost. Sentry is great on Conquest for an extra main gun shot. superiority, again, is great.
Not much here other than Watcher. Not particularly interesting.
A great match on paper - feat is great, fortune is huge, escort is huge. Broadsides is supranational, but can result in 3x main gun shots on the feat turn. Not something I would likely shrug off out of hand.
Looks to me that there are lots of very interesting ways to pair Conquest. I can't wait to bring it to the table.
