Search Dawnguard Destors – Retribution Cavalry Unit

Models listed by Faction


Models listed by Expansion
List of Spells
List of Special Abilities

Destors are the elite cavalry of the Dawnguard and now of the Retribution. Supporting massive
Cryx infantry offensives, they strike where the enemy line is weakest. Once the line is penetrated, enemies
Cygnar find themselves outflanked, outshot, and outmatched by heavy horse picking them into pieces by
Khador lance and cannon.

decent to quite good when in melee, but you shouldn't be letting them get shot too much. Point-wise
they are rather expensive, but standard for cavalry units.

Weapons and Attacks


Lance Cannon – Medium RNG and decent POW. It's barely longer than their charging threat
range.
Dual Shot - This model may take an additional shot with a ranged weapon on
Circle Orboros activations that it forfeits its movement. This additional shot does count against ROF.
Legion of Everblight
Lance – High POW, but can only be used on the charge... so make sure you get the alpha-
Skorne
Trollbloods strike!
Minions Reach - This weapon has increased melee range.
Blindwater Congregation Lance - This weapon may only be used for a charge attack.
Thornfall Alliance Mount – Low POW, impact attacks only.

Special Abilities
Gunfighter - This model may make ranged attacks while in melee, but can only target models
within its melee range while doing so. This model gains 0.5" melee range (if it doesn't already
have a melee weapon).
Newbie Page
Unyielding - This model gains an ARM bonus when it is engaging another model.

Thoughts on the Dawnguard Destors


Rules for Editors Destors in a nutshell
Pages which need work These guys are...odd. They have some rules which are telling you they're horse archers (Dual Shot)
How can I help? and some which tell you they're melee cavalry (Lance, Gunfighter, Unyielding). The result is a mixed
How to Edit arms unit that doesn't excel at any one aspect of combat. They're tactically flexible, but their low
Donate average damage output means you have to work to make back their points.
Other
Mk I Archive Combos & Synergies
Terrain Archive Vyros1 – Possibility to boost ARM to 21 allows them to survive POW 11-15 charge attacks
on average rolls.
Vyros2 - Easy Rider gives the unit a way of travelling through rough terrain without being
hindered, can help make them a treat where the other player would not expect them.
Ravyn – Snipe allows them to shoot as far as Houseguard Riflemen. Her feat and the aiming
bonus allows them to hit DEF 18 models on average rolls.
Ossyan – His feat boosts damage output to respectable levels. Quicken boosts their SPD
nicely, almost guaranteeing them charges.
Dawnguard Scyir – Coordinated Strike allows him and his marshaled 'jack to ignore Destors
when determining LOS and to move through them.
Issyria - With Inviolable resolve gives them a good bonus to ARM, and the feat allows them
to hit stealthed targets sand increases their chance of hitting and do more damage.

Rules clarifications
When using Dual Shot in melee, you don't get the aiming bonus (as per the rules of
Gunfigher).
You can't use the Lance for free strikes. You can only free strike enemy models within 0.5".

Mercenary Different types of Mercenary
Warjacks warjacks can only be taken by
specific Mercenary models ...
which means there's too many
permutations to list here (in any
sort of meaningful way).

However, note that the following


Retribution mercenary models
can control warjacks/warbeasts
(in addition to the Mercenary
Warcasters listed above):
Dahlia Hallyr & Skarath
Mercenary Nyss Hunters • Lady Aiyana &
Units Master Holt
Mercenary Lanyssa Ryssyll • Madelyn
Solos Corbeau • Dahlia Hallyr &
Skarath

Note: To field a mercenary warcaster with Retribution (ha ha ha ha), you need to be
playing a game which allows 2 (or more) warcasters.
