Check out the rest of the Orksvent days!
One of the most sought-after roles one can play in WAAGH! Drillteef is as a bodyguard to a Painboy. Some of the biggest thugs in the WAAGH! make their way up through the ranks in these positions. The unique nature of this, however, is that the bodyguards do not covet the position of the Ork they protect since the Painboy’s skillset is somewhat of a puzzle to them. For this reason, the Stitchboyz have a unique perspective on what it means to be a bodyguard as compared to other Orks.
1 Painboy, Painboss, or Mad Doc (referred to as Painboy from here on out)
1 unit of Nobz
Only 1 Nob in the unit may take a Power Klaw upgrade and the unit may not take the WAAGH! Banner upgrade nor the Bosspole upgrade. The unit of Nobz may not exceed 4 members.
Special Kunning, Da Best Inventions
Strict Orders: The Painboy in this Formation must join the unit of Nobz in this Formation at the start of the game and they must stay together for the duration of the game.
I’m a Doc, not a General: The Painboy and Nobz from this Formation may be joined to any other unit to create a single unit. They may leave that unit at any time as if they were all Independent Characters, though the Painboy may still never leave his unit of Nobz. When joined with this other unit, they are treated as if they were a part of it for all purposes including Leadership, average toughness, feel no pain among them. Throughout it all, the Painboy and his Nobz must remain in unit cohesion with each other at all times.
Look Out, Doc: If a Nob from this Formation is the closest model to the Painboy when the Painboy makes a Look Out, Sir! attempt, the roll automatically passes.
Multi-Talented Assistants: All Ammo Runts in this formation may be used to re-roll Feel No Pain as well as hits.
