Mage hunters are expected to function in extreme circumstances, such as surviving hand-to-mouth deep in enemy territory while isolated from friendly support. At home in any environment, they learn to scavenge and improvise, and to kill without hesitation. Their first priority is always the elimination of enemy arcanists and mechanikal constructs which they believe harm Scyrah.


Mage Hunter Strike Force comes in a box (PIP 35014). A player may field two Mage Hunter Strike Force units for each warcaster in his Retribution army.


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

Tricksy elven hunters with a surprising melee competency
The Mage Hunters are one of the most common units for the Retribution and probably its defining troop with their whole "destroy all spellcasters" theme. They have the awesome Arcane Assassin ability to counter protective spells and their Unit Attachment adds even more deadly potential. While most of their exchanges will be spent making ranged attacks, these Mage Hunters do have some decent ability in melee between combined attacks and their jack hunter ability. A good round can wipe a jack or two out or burst a whole through a troop line. Unfortunately, their low ARM means they'll suffer badly if they catch the wrong end of a melee fight as their good DEF is no guarantee of survival.

The biggest issue with the Strike Force is that they are greatly disadvantaged against Hordes armies compared to Warmachine. So many of their abilities excel against warjacks and powerfields and neither of those are going to matter against Warlocks. They're certainly not helpless but naturally tough beasts and troops are going to be a major challenge for them.

Solid Ranged Unit
The Mage Hunter Strike Force is a solid unit commonly used in a lot of Retribution lists, they being Mage Hunters have the rules to help them take down casters, they are also ok at shooting jacks as they have a bonus for doing so but normally it's better to shoot other things. They are almost always taken with their UA the Mage Hunter Commander.
