Detachment Focus: Hypercrypt Legion

In this series of articles we take a deep dive into a specific detachment for a faction, covering the faction’s rules and upgrades and talking about how to build around that faction for competitive play.

Call me a Fyreslayer because I'm hot, short, and very angry! It's 100 degrees outside, the garage I film in is not air conditioned, and I am very upset about both of these pieces of information.
