Exclusive Batman Court of Owls Preview - The Talon William Cobb
The fantastic team at Knight Models have just sent this over.
A preview for William Cobb. A Talon for the new Court of Owls crew,
Cobb is THE Talon. Well, the first one that Batman meets anyway. Ancient reanimated assassin and Dick Grayson's great grandfather. Cobb takes out anyone the Court want him to and especially likes killing Waynes.
This model seems to have been pulled straight out of the pages of the comic as it captures the character and details perfectly.
Cobb comes in at 68 Rep and is only a Henchman! This makes it look like the court may be a low powered Leader and some very strong but expensive Henchmen. An elite force that can take on any challenge.
Armed with some Blood giving knives, Cobb uses Combo, Martial Artist and Precise Blow to become a serious threat in close combat.
Getting in to combat won't be a problem for him either. Deploying further with Undercover and then using Elusive to help avoid ranged attacks means Cobb will have no trouble crossing the board.
Don't forget that Henchmen can take Equipment as well. Do Stealth or Climbing Claws sound like good additions?
If he is taken down, "Reanimated Owl" lets him reroll the KO recovery roll and get back into the action much quicker. While he sound all round amazing, he does have a big weakness. The cold!
Mr Freeze can cause some serious extra damage to this Talon if he isn't careful.
What do you think of this Talon?
Are the Court of Owls going to be your next / first crew?
