- A long-range cannon-like attack inflicting moderate damage to all units in its path.
- Special armor which activates after being hit, significantly reducing damage from incoming attacks for the rest of the turn.
Bulwarks can be a meaningful threat due to the moderate damage of their ranged attack and the fact that their special armor can prevent the vanguard from killing one in a single round. It is therefore important to ensure the first attack against a Bulwark during a turn is a powerful one, as any damage will trigger the Bulwark's special armor. Any attack after that is not likely to inflict more than a point of damage. It is also likely that the vanguard will be unable to kill a Bulwark before it has an opportunity to attack, so take care to avoid lining heroes up and when possible, keep the health of heroes high enough to withstand an attack.
Note that the Hunter's Follow Up ability does not trigger the Bulwark's armor until after the follow up shot, making this a great choice for an opening attack.
