Yes! 2+ invul!

Looks like 4 ablative wounds you can shuffle high damage weapons onto instead of making Ghaz take a lascannon to the face early game.

Right. Grot shields doesn't do damage, it flat out kills a model. We'll need a rule or a stratagem to see if Makari has any use other than being a meme.

But he'd be one hell of a meme.

That is unless he and Ghaz deploy as a single unit.
Then you could shuffle high damage weapons onto him without any problems and would effectively let Ghaz break the targetable-character wound cap without pushing his actual wound count past that limit.

Could you imagine a 2++ grot protecting Ghaz, who appears to be about the size of a Redemptor? That would cause such a :cuss show.

The way GW has been doing 8th ed rules so far, that is a good chance of that being the rules for new Ghaz.

Yeah, but Mikari would survive maybe 1 failed save.

Basically a Shadowfield with legs when you think about it.

I doubt you get one without the other.

Vic and Bob, Morecambe and Wise, the 2 Ronnie, Little and large, cannon and ball, Laurel and Hardy, Ghaz and Makari, Skinner and Baddiel.

Neither works without the other... especially Baddiel 😂

I'm amused by it, but I'm a little sad they didn't give us a version of Ghaz with him standing atop Ghaz's shoulders.

Serious though, very funny. The very embodiment of the annoying cheerleader and I personally look forward to seeing how long Makari can stay alive with a 2++.

 

Though, still find it comical to think, he could sit on an objective IN FRONT of an entire army and could have a real shot at surviving!

There is no time limit for this task, there is no deadline. My oath is to solemnly complete the armies I have now, to see it that they can have their glory. Paint will be stripped from the old in need, thick may it be like ceramite I will see it removed so that plastic and metal alike may see light of new paint. Models yet to be, boxed and in darkness will be assembled with due care and attention. For this task I am permitted to still buy the supplies needed to do my task but not one model more.

All I know is I'm wasting a CP and 100pts to bring a vindicare every game I play against my buddies Orks to snipe Makari.

Mostly because I know otherwise hes gonna wipe 20% of my army because I'll forget he exists and get shanked.

All I want to happen, just once, is someone charging in their smash captain into Makari without knowing his stats.  Makari proceeds to tank every single blow and deals some MWs in return, making the SM player real worried his captain is going to get killed by this lowly grot next turn.

I'm still wondering if there's still mileage in the rumours this will be a 'battle-in-a-box' set (Orks v Wolves), a la Shadowspear, followed by a wave that includes Ghaz. Indicators for this:
- Ghaz's reveal, focusing on Makari, echoes the way Abby was teased, focusing on the dead Primaris Lt on his Base
- Abby was part of a Chaos Wave that was preceded by Shadowspear
- That wave came out March/April last year, so that would fit in with the rumoured time line for this.

However, going against this are the following:
- Shadowspear had already been announced by this time last year (at Adepticon, iirc)
- There's been no announcement of a battle box set for this
- At past year's toy fair (upcoming this weekend) the announcements were for games with figures that went on to be part of Blackstone Fortress - no announcements tied to Shadowspear or the Chaos release. So I think it's unlikely we'll see anything on PA6 this weekend.

So I'm still on the fence whether this means just the book and a couple of new figures (Ghaz and a Wolf(???)), or a battle box set.

I don't collect either Orks or Wolves, but it'd be cool to see certain Ork units get an update (Mega Nobz; Kommandos), and obviously proper Primaris Wolves, with cc weapon options, would be fantastic. We can but hope..!

If they do that with Gaz...after how they butchered the rules for poor Celestine, I will have some strong words to share with Gdub.
