Trollblood Units....

This are the units I currently own for the Trollblood Hordes force, and how I feel they can be used with the casters I have available.

Stonebearer and Scribes or better known as KSB

These will probably be a staple addition to all my forces and will have another 2 scribes and the Elder added to make a full unit. This should also add to the effective range from the stone buffs.

Long Riders (Full Unit)

These bad boys are to be painted and completed, hopefully next time you see them, they may have some more paint on them.

The way I see myself using these is with Grissel especially in Scenario play. First turn with Hoof it from her fell call they can move 21" making them a very good denial unit. Also they are Multiwound and hard hitting. Add Hrothol in and they become even more so with Bull Rush and follow up.


These go without saying, Multi-wound medium based, 2 attacks and weaponmaster to top it off. These are also a staple inclusion into most of my forces.

Grissel - Hoff it and War cry give these the extra mobility and an extra attack from weaponmaster.
the other casters still to figure these out.

Pygmie Burrowers

I have got these to go with EMadrak for the single wound unit. Whelps will also be used in this role.

I have got these as an Infantry clearance unit with the POW14 3" AOE's.

Put in mind I am new to Hordes and Trolls. And don't you hate it when the spray can runs out as you can see from the champs. I had planned on spraying the other 3 units as well.

Hopefully this Tuesday I will see the first outing for EMadrak at 35points.

Maybe have a BatRep with some pics by then....

Casters and Beasts to the fore....

So I have indulged in a few more purchases and my repertoire of casters has increased to Grim Angus, EMadrak and not forgetting Grissel.
This gives me more options with how to use the Trolls. I have only used Grissel thus far and she enables the Trolls to be very mobile. She needs to be used from the back of the Low Def/High Arm Trolls to benefit them as she is most definately a support caster.
Grim and EMadrak are still to be used.

The beasts I have to use are the
Earthborn Dire Troll
Mauler Dire Troll
Mulg the Ancient (still to be assembled)
The idea of the Bouncer is to pair him with either Grissel to give her some extra protection or with Mulg or Earthborn to offer anti charge protection from his animus.
Impaler for some ranged Threat and Crit KD??? think that is right.

Units to come over the next week or so......

These are built but still to be put onto the painting table.
Fellcaller hero.
Still to arrive from Maelstrom Games.
