    Wikispaces closure and PMF
    So are their plans to migrate this site to another hosting service, or is it just going to disappear? From my understanding it's on borrowed time.

    Utility
    We talked about the Pushes above, but there is more to this model than that. Using the Remove Evidence ability, you can pick up a nearby scheme, corpse or scrap marker at the start of its activation, this model can gain you a card. And since you dropped a marker to get a push earlier, you are likely to have a marker around to pick up.

    Tactics and Tips
    Hoffman can provide the pushes to let the Riot Breaker push himself. That can be through his ability to follow friendly walking models or through his push trigger. Lucius has a similar push trigger which can trigger the riot Breaker's extra push. These can get the Riotbreaker across the table much faster than people expect (11" with a single obey from Lucius).
    They obviously like models with pushes. They are also quite good at hold up their forces models, and for guarding a marker in Symbols of Authority.

    The Riotbreaker also packs a Riot Gun. This gun can make damaged models insignificant, doesn't randomize, and even does single blasts so if you want to shoot it off of another friendly model (like another Riot Breaker) you can do so.
    xResilianceResilience
    The Riot Breaker is plenty easy to hit at Def 4/WP 6, but 7 wounds with Armor 2 goes a long way towards keeping this model on the board. But models that ignore reduction will go through it with ease (though Hoffman's Improved Harness fixes that)

    xMobilityMobility
    (How the Minion/Peon gets aroundThe Riot Breaker has a low walk of 4, and how good it is at it)doesn't get any better with the charge. To help with mobility, it has the ++No Pushing or Shoving++ ability, which will allow it to push when it sees a push happen once per turn.
    OffenseOffense
    (PossiblyThis model packs some pretty weak attack options. When engaged it can use its Tower Shield, which does very little damage. It does get to do damage on disengaging strikes, which is nice because it has ++Disperse, Disperse++. That tactical action does a pulse that makes models use their first action to walk, and punishes them if they don't disengage from the Riotbreaker. Because that pulse does this with subheadings like 'melee', 'ranged' and/or relevant spellsa Walk duel, it is better against slow models than faster ones. But a lot of the time, it is almost as effective as a pulsed duel to cause slow. You will probably find you use this more than the Tower Shield during the Riotbreaker's activation.

    The ++Please Move in an Orderly Fashion++ ability, taking away generated additional actions, will also help with survivability, as it will prevent Casting Expert and Melee Expert from being as useful. Riot Breaker is a great answer for Ashes

    Thalarian Queller, Guild Minion
    xOverviewOverview
    (No more thanThe Thalarian Queller is a few paragraphs on whatsupport/ control model with the Minion/Peon is about and how it basically plays)Witch Hunter tag. Notice them for the Suppression Markers, come back for the Enchanted Weapons.
    xMobilityMobility
    (How the Minion/Peon gets aroundPretty average speed, and how good it is at it)no move abilities to get them around, but these aren't models you are running around a lot anyways.
    OffenseOffense
    (PossiblyThese models can do an unreducible 2/3/4 with subheadings like 'melee', 'ranged' and/or relevant spellstheir Enchanted Blades. With a trigger, they can ignore hard to wound and abilities)(more importantly) hard to kill. You aren't bringing these models to kill, but can be handy if you don't have a better option to take out those big armored enemies.
    They can also debuff enemy models with their restraining wand (giving out negative attack flips and potentially low) with their Restraining wand.
    Their most important offensive contribution is their Enchanted Weapon. Giving a friendly model the ability to ignore reduction for their close and projectile attacks is something the Guild really needed to deal with crews with a lot of incorporeal. It can't be used on your master though.

    xResilianceResilience
    (Possibly5/6 is just fine for a 6ss minion, especially with subheadings like 'vs melee', ' vs ranged' and/or relevant spells7 wounds and abilities)a tendency to not be on the front lines. They also have some damage reduction in the form of Arcane Shield, as well as the ability to keep that Arcane Shield going with Concentrated Shielding. The hard part is knowing when discarding the card is worth it.
    Utility and Control
    The Thalarian Queller has the ability to get you cards using their Soulstone Artisan ability. It is an easy one to forget, so find a way to remind yourself in the way you track soulstones.
    The Queller's most talked about ability in beta testing was their Area Suppression. Needing a low suited card isn't bad, but there will be times where you don't get it when you want it. Those suppression markers take away suits within 3" from a bunch of stats, which can make summoning difficult/impossible, take away some built in triggers and make other triggers impossible. Really a nasty trick if you can figure out where the fight is going to be.

    I'm not sure I agree about a lot of the Sonnia information at this point. I have added some stuff from the more recent waves, but I'm not sure the play style described here is still effective.
