Dawnguard Scyir in a nutshell

The Dawnguard Scyir is a melee combat solo that provides excellent command support for
Rules for Editors troops. He is also meaty and pretty tough to kill for his cost. The Scyir and his marshaled
Pages which need work myrmidon (usually a Griffon) should be able to kill other light 'jacks and beasts on their own.
How can I help?
How to Edit The Scyir benefits from myrmidons with Reach, both under him and under his caster, to gain
Donate his Flank bonus. He works well with most of Retribution's infantry, providing CMD to save
you from Abominations and their ilk. If you're not running a high CMD warcaster, consider
Other bringing a Scyir to keep your units from fleeing. The Scyir is very good in melee when
Mk I Archive flanking an allied myrmidon, and tough to kill when gaining his bonus from Iron Sentinel.
Terrain Archive Since the Scyir is often a low priority model, he will often get his damage out for multiple
rounds, gaining back his points quite easily. He has pretty good threat range for a melee
solo, with high speed and reach. Use him to clear out jamming models with his high MAT
(especially if flanking).

Though many do not find value in the Scyir anymore, he and a Griffon are still good for their
points. Try before you buy.

Combos & Synergies

Griffon - is every Scyir's best friend. Reroll helps ensure the Griffon does its damage.
Reach helps ensure the Scyir gets his flank. Both together are quite durable for their
Stormfall Archers, Houseguard Halberdiers, HouseGuard Riflemen - these units have
low CMD, so benefit greatly from his high CMD and Commander.

Thyron - Thyron has this spiffy new buff called Storm Rager. Apply liberally for high
mat high pow weapon master substitutes. Sure there are better targets, but he's still a
great one. May want to keep his Myrmidon under Thyron though for the cleave.
Garryth - for some odd reason, Garryth has pretty low CMD. A Scyir will let him
attack Abominations without fear.

Tricks & Tactics

The Scyir is also a Dawnguard, so his marshaled myrmidon will be able to run/charge
over him. Also works with Dawnguard Destor Thanes.
The Scyir gains Flank from any myrmidon, not just his marshaled one, so be sure to
send in a battlegroup myrmidon first, then send the Scyir in to flank that myrmidon
and use Reroll, then send in his marshaled myrmidon.
Be sure to end in base to base with at least one myrmidon for your Iron Sentinel

Drawbacks & Downsides

His ARM is a little low without Iron Sentinel, so he has been known to take a shot
and leave his myrmidon inert.
Very dependent on order of activation for both his Flank and Drive:Reroll. He is not
great against Haley2, for example.
Without something to Flank, he is not doing enough damage, so he is quite
dependent on keeping Myrmidons alive.
