I am seeing several people use Bokur as a body guard for their casters and wanted to know what the thoughts might be in using it with a caster such as caine, haley, or seige.

Ideas please.

A galaxy far far away

i think he would work well with Caine, he can take the care of the hitting and let Caine focus on the shooting.

Too many to count

2k but planned for more

2k and stopped

(they are blue to match my Ultramarines)

Also Play Gothic, Warmachine and Hordes, but there is not icons for those.

Bokur is in Superiotity and yes he will work well with Caine and maybe Haley as well as some of Cygnars other casters.

Thanks.

You do not want to give the Bokur to Caine. Caine relies on his high speed movement to get the job done; the Bokur likes to be in client range when he's activating. While he makes a pretty hard-hitting bodyguard; Caine doesn't need a bodyguard - he shouldn't ever be getting engaged.

If you want to put a Bokur on something, consider Maxwell Finn. Finn's got smoke so he can screen the Bokur on its way in; and with Finn's wetwork the two of them are a threat to both infantry and warjacks. This also gives the Bokur AD which is very nice to have.

Eiryss is also another excellent choice; it's how I'm running my Bokur in my eCaine list.

Or Gorman. He can smoke the Bokur and has stealth to make sure the Client gets up there alive...

Well actually when I posted this I was thinking of using Bokur with Seige or one of my other casters like the normal Stryker. Although he might fit the temporal turtle with Haley as well.

Gorman, interesting idea may have to give that some looking into because I had not thought of the stealth thing.

One of the guys at the store where I play uses Brokur with Epic Stryker and has very good luck.

Thanks for the idea.

IMO the Bokur is best on something that will mix it up. If you just use him as a caster bodyguard he is too expensive; a crutch. Just learn not to expose your caster.

Gorman is another good client for him. Finn is not a bad one as well (I think I mentioned this). Also a Trencher Sarge is a good one; this gives your opponents second thoughts about just running through your rolling smoke wall.

Gorman works well because he can also debuff whatever the bokur is targeting. Black Oil and Rust are HUGELY effective in trashing big jacks like the Avatar and Behemoth. They're easy enough to hit but harder to scratch.... Rust takes care of that.

Black Oil keeps you from being retailiated against.

You need to be VERY CAREFUL who you give a bokur to. Yeah Caine is high defense, as is eryiss, but the bokur is not......shoot the bokur with the template....

Hope more old fools come to their senses and start giving you their money instead of those Union Jack Blood suckers...

Give the Bokur to Finn. The 2 compensates each other very well.

Finn can pop smoke, has AD, and is tough enough to stay up there with the Bokur.
