Few military developments have been so disquieting to Cygnar's rivals as the Hunter; simply stated, it is a jack assassin. Equipped with advanced mechanika relays, an inventive boiler design, and a Long Arm cannon specifically designed for penetrating heavily armored opponents over distances, the Hunter has already made a name for itself in the field.


Miniatures are supplied unpainted. Preparation and assembly may be required.

Best armor cracking in Cygnar
First of all, I'd have to say that, personally, I find the model really ugly. It doesn't fix in the look and feel of the rest of Cygnar's jacks, and has a more stylized look that set it apart in the formation, but not in a good way. The lack of detail makes it boring to paint.
But... it is probably one of the best warjacks in the faction, and a superb armor cracking tool. It can easily finds it way in any list.
Other than his great gun, it also has good mobility thanks to pathfinder and parry means that he can get out of engagement to shot from afar.
And yes, he is a great option for marshalling if you field the ATGM with the officer. And, if you do, consider getting a second hunter for marshalling. They work amazingly well in pairs with the rune shots pushing back enemies or sniping from afar.

Fire and Forget
Modeling: Metal model, so it's fairly durable and has a satisfying weight to it. The long-gun it looks like the mean jack it is.

Gameplay: It's a little high-costed for a Cygnar light, but pays for it with a defense that's high for a Light Warjack and not-often imitated Armor-Piercing cannon. It efficiently threatens anything with a medium base or larger and is a premier 'Jack-hunter. Often called one of the most 'efficient' 'jacks in the game, Armor-piercing is one of the most reliably useful abilities in the game, and the Hunter uses it well.

Field With: Any Caster, but especially when you need anti-armor support

Often remarked as what might be the best pairing with the Unit Attachment that you can field with 'Arcane Tempest Gun Mages'. The support the Gun Mages can offer it with their own Rune Shots is a powerful tool to support the 'jack. But most importantly, the UA gives the Hunter Rune-Shot - giving it either a stunning range on it's weapon, or the an extra die from a critical hit (Use 'Jack Marshall' to boost on Attack to increase your chance for critical)

This little guy packs a big punch
The hunter is a popular warjack for Cygnarns. His gun punches through medium and large based models with force that might catch your opponent off guard, and with pathfinder and an extended control area, he can range far across the table to flank your opponent.

The model itself was easy to put together. All metal means it feels good in the hand and on the table.

Enemy of heavy armor.
This is a cheap light jack that comes with a slew of amazing rules. His gun is armor piercing and shreds through some of those high armored heavys such as khador Jacks.
