The cyclopean eye of a Cygor allows it to see the flows of magic that wend across the battlefield. As they tear their way through the ranks of the enemy, they feast upon spells as well as the sorcerous souls of those who cast them.
Wow that sounds fantastic right, but sadly doesn’t quite translate. Tearing through the ranks of the enemy with 8 attacks at 4+,3+,-1,1… that doesn’t tear.
Eating spells, must be like an auto unbind or some such, lets check the scroll. 2 unbinds… I guess that’s ok and they do 1 MW to the caster and heal a wound.
14w, 5+ save and m8 will survive chip damage but that’s about it.
Units That Synergise With It
Herdstone effectively buffs it’s rend, that’s nice.
Loads of units can buff combat attacks but that feels like a waste to put it on this unit.
Units it Synergises With
It doesn’t have any synergies it puts out, sadface.
How to Use the Unit in Game
Put it on the board and watch it do nothing all game. Wish that it was any other unit out the book that actually achieves things.
