  1. Trying to decide between two 1500pt mixed destruction lists. Started with Ironjawz starter set but really want to add Fellwater Troggoths as I love the models. Just intended for casual play. Which of these lists would be more competitive, which would be more fun to play, and which would look better together? Any suggestions on swapping some units around without straying far off theme? List 1 Leaders Orruk Megaboss Gitmob Grot Shaman w/ talisman of protection Orruk Warchanter Battleline Gitmob Grots w/bows x20 Gitmob Grots w/bows x20 Units Ironfist Battalion Orruk Ardboys x10 Orruk Brutes x5 Orruk Gore Gruntas x3 Fellwater Troggoths x3 Grot Rock Lobber Grot Rock Lobber List 2 Leaders Orruk Warboss on Boar w/ choppa and shield, talisman of protection Orruk Warchanter Battleline Savage Orruks x10 Savage Orruks x10 Units Ironfist Battalion Orruk Ardboys x10 Orruk Ardboys x10 Orruk Brutes x5 Orruk Gore Gruntas x3 Orruk Boarboys x5 Fellwater Troggoths x3
  2. So I managed to get in a practice game the other day. The list I used was: Big boss on Gigantic spider - General - Ravager. Frostlord on stonehorn Gitmob shaman araknarok with Spider shrine 10 spider riders 5 spider riders 20 gitmob grots with bows 20 gitmob grots with bows His list from memory: Wightlord with black axe necromancer necrotect 10 skeleton swordsman * 2 20 graveguard with great weapons 30 skeletons with spears 5 black knights 2 skull catapults Death rattle formation We played the take and hold mission. So my opponent was able to deploy first due to the formation and chose to go first. He placed his catapults in the middle of the board, forcing me to deploy my spiders on the far flanks to avoid taking dmg in the first turn. He loaded his right flank heavily with 30 skeleton spearman and the 20 grave guard, his other flank composed of the swordsman and the black knights. I placed my stonelord down facing off against the skeleton spearman and graveguard, supported by my 10 man spider fang unit. my gitmob grots hung around my centre objective with the little gitmob shaman right on the back board edge. On my left I setup my 5 spider riders and big boss just out of range of his catapults with the araknarok setup on the 12inch line and within range of mystic shield for the stonelord. I knew that in order to have a chance of winning my stonehorn would need to wipe either the spearman or the graveguard. In my opponents turn everything moves forward using the death rattle formations free move, he then moves normally and had his catapults within range of my 10 man spider unit. Killing 6 of them with a combination of wounds and battle shock... OUCH! In my turn I buff the stonelord with mystic shield and one swig of battle brew and get the first turn charge off into my friends skeleton spearman. I didn't realise my friend had cleverly setup a wedge and absently moved the stonelord into the tip of the wedge, when I could have moved into a better position with the charge roll I managed. As a result I could only remove 5 skeletons and took 4 wounds in return. My opponent gets the next turn with 5 skeletons coming back to life thanks to his banner. He positions his black knights and wight king in position to charge my araknarok. His Necromancer casts van hels on his grave guard who also position themselves for a charge into my stonelord. Shooting saw 8 wounds being caused on my araknarok. The black knights manage to make it into the Araknarok, along with the wight king. In combat the graveguard only manage to push through 2 wounds with their first round of attacks on my stonelord who in return wipes the squad. The black knights manage to cause a wound on the araknarok in return the araknarok causes one wound on the wight king who does the same back in return. The skeletons manage to get the stonelord down to 5 wounds with their attacks. In my turn I shuffle everyone forward, pushing one unit of gitmob grots close enough to fire some support shots into the araknarok combat. I buff this same unit with the gitmob shamans spell giving them +1 to wound and rend -1. the stonelord takes a drink and the goblin big boss activates his command ability and stands behind his 5 meat shields(spider riders on the left flank), the other now 4 man unit of spider riders move up to take some pot shots at the necrotect. In shooting I manage to kill 3 black knights with the gitmob grots and cause a wound on the necrotect. In combat the araknarok does nothing and is brought down in return. The stonelord kills the skeletons suffering another wound bringing him down to 4 wounds. In the turn roll off I manage to get the double turn. I pop my command ability, fail to cast the git mob shaman spell, drink the battle brew and destruction my spiders forward with the big boss on spider in support. The 4 man unit gets into position to attempt a charge at the necotect. In the shooting phase I cause a wound on the wight king, bringing him down to 3 remaining. I charge my 5 man spider unit into his remaining black knights and wight king. The stonelord charges the crewmen for the catapults, the 4 man spider unit fails to charge. In combat the 5 spider riders are wiped after doing nothing in return. The catapult crew are wiped by the stonelord. My friend at this point pulls back his forces to try and kill the stonelord. He charges one of his 10 man skeleton units into my remaining 4 spider riders from the 10 man unit. In combat we each cause a few wounds to each other and stick. He also causes 3 mortal wounds with a bolt on the stonelord, bringing him down to 1 wound. We roll for the turn and I manage to get it. I drink my battle brew and send the stonelord into the wight king and necromancer. I also move one unit of gitmob grots up to pepper the 10 man skeleton unit picking on my remaining spider riders. In CC the stonelord wipes the wight king and the necromancer. The skeletons and spiders do nothing to each other and we call it at that point with neither of us able to get a major. Minor Victory to destruction thanks to frostlord on stonehorn haha. I made an error in this game pushing the Araknarok forward like I did. I just wanted to see what they could do and the dmg they can take. I had a feeling he might be a bit squishy and I was right haha. I'm tempted to not take the frostlord on stonehorn to the tournament at the end of this month. He's very good and reliable, but sometimes when he rolls well he takes a little bit of fun out of it for my opponent. So I may instead substitute him for a troll hag! Will see how I feel and whether I want to win or not
  3. I know snotlings are not the most powerful and exciting greenskins you can field but they are cutest! So is anyone using them in their games and what role do they fill? I've purchased 5 bases and a pump wagon for a friend as a 'gag gift' for his birthday but they must be good for something. Here's is what I'm thinking. My friend plays Ironjawz and when he's played against my Seraphon I've found that chaff units are quite effective against them. Skinks, in particular, really slow him down and mess with his board control. So how are snotlings as multiwound chaff units? The have no save and can't regenerate unlike lots of swarms, but they are fairly fast when paired with the Destruction Allegiance ability and could help keep his elite units from being bogged down with chaff units. Of course there's almost no amount of buffing that will make them effective damage dealers but then neither are skinks. I don't think that's their job. As for the pump wagon, I think it could be make an effective shock unit with a powerful charge and has the potential to move quickly across the board. I don't know enough about Destruction to know if it can manipulate dice rolls like Tzeentch and Seraphon can. If it is possible, while maintaining the Destruction allegiance, a unit of pump wagons could be fun and powerful. So what do you think? Any experiences or thoughts are welcome!
  4. Hi all, I have recently purchased a really nice looking Grot Wolf Rider themed army and I was looking to get some input into my list. Do you think the army would be fun and competitive to play? What allegiance abilities and artefacts would be a good choice? Goblin Warboss on Wolf 60pts Goblin Warboss on Wolf 60pts Gitmob Grot Shaman on Wolf 80pts 20 Grot Wolf Riders with Spears and Shields 400pts 15 Grot Wolf Riders with Spears and Shields 300pts 15 Grot Wolf Riders with Spears and Shields 300pts 2 Snotling Pump Wagons 120pts 3 Grot Wolf Chariots 120pts 3 Grot Wolf Chariots 120pts Grot Rock Lobber 100pts Grot Rock Lobber 100pts Grot Spear Chukka 120pts Grot Spear Chukka 120pts 2000pts Thanks for reading!
  5. So, as a primer, a few recent posts here inspired me, so I went and bought 50 wolf riders. I'm convinced it'll be an enjoyable modeling project worst case, but with a little looking in I think it could play fairly decently as well.

The main damage dealer here is the unit of 30 wolfriders, ideally, with Sneaky Stabbin' and Mystic Shield cast on them, and attacking a unit of 15 or fewer models they're 2 wound, 12" move (and rampaging destroyers), 3+ save(mystic shield and raidin' shields), with 2 shot bows hitting on 3+, wounding on 3+ and at rend -1. Outside of that I'm maxed on super mobile characters and several other wolfrider units to claim objectives like crazy. I'm still largely in the planning and modeling phase, with a lot of work to go before I make it to table, but that just makes now the perfect time to tinker with the list. The great gitmob Grot requirements conveniently open me up to all the units destruction has to offer, so if anyone has thoughts on improvements from anywhere in the destruction arsenal I;d love to hear 'em! Thanks for reading through my stream of consciousness, I'd love to hear any thoughts, comments, concerns, suggestions, etc.
  6. Hello there. Here's an interesting(?) play that took place last night on a 1000pt Grots VS Chaos game. We were playing the CONSUMED scenario from the Generals Handbook. There was one big unit of 60 grots defending the ritual site. According to the rules these had the following bonuses: +1 to hit plus +1 to wound from being Great Gitmob rule (outnumbering Chaos knights more than 2 to 1) +2 to hit from the Goblins Unruly Rabble rule (unit has more than 30 models) +1 to hit, wound and save from the ritual site rule of the scenario +1 to wound and -1 rend from the shaman casting sneakin stabbin on them every single turn This resulted on this unit having the followng stats: To Hit 1+, to Wound: 2+, Rend -1, Save 4+ (5+ from shied plus +1 from the ritual site) Attaking with spears and being 60 deep without battleshock tests (Inspiring presence) they ripped everything apart everything thrown at them. Chaos Chosen, Chaos knight, Chariots. Everything... Being new players so there is a good chance we did somethng really wrong The funny thing is that we are still playtesting various armies so this was not entirely intentional. Have you seen this before? Is there a known way to deal with it? Or its just bad gaming style to pile up stats like this and hack the game?
  7. Hi! Some time ago I presented a gitmob + spiderfang list which won me my last local tournament (1660 points). The next one is 1220 points and I decided to bring something fluffy and little more friendly: Moonclan Grot Warboss, squig companion, prodder (old metal Skarsnik ), bellowing tyrant, talisman of protection/ battle brew [80] Moonclan Grot Shaman [60] 40 Moonclan Grots, swords, 6 netters [240] 2 Fanatics [60] 40 Moonclan Grots, spears, 5 netters [240] 2 Fanatics [60] 20 Cave Squigs [240] 2 Squig herders [20] 2 Squig herders [20] 3 Throggoths/ Aleguzzler Gargant [200/180] So the army would be a medium grot warband, that crawled out of the mountain caves bringing some squigs and trolls with them. Big units of grots with nets and fanatics are very universal- decent damage, good objective holders, good for tarpit, charge controll, resistant to shooting. Squigs are for the damage (with bellowing tyrant and and herders they are 3+/3+/-1/D3) Throggots or Gargant are for some sand-alone killing power that do not need inspiring presence/ bellowing tyrant etc. to do their job. The army should work decently... I think
  8. Hi folks, just signed up to the tga, so expect to see me all over the place in the coming months. I'm starting a destruction army, and I have a couple of Doom Divers on the way to be the long ranged arm of Gork/Mork. However, the rules stipulate that the effectiveness of the piece is affected by how many crew are by the catapult. Any ideas on models to use as these crew? The models I have only have one! Thanks!
  9. An open play game, played over Skype, basically using every mounted model we had available to create a Mad Max-inspired scenario. Two mounted warbands clash, with Chaos trying to drive their vital cargo through the streets of a goblin-infested city! http://woffboot.blogspot.co.uk/2016/08/mean-streets-chaos-vs-destruction.html We ended up using some fairly dodgy proxy models (since all my greenskins were on the other side of the Skype connection, but the new snow map, and accompanying scenery, were a treat to play over.
  10. This Grom the Paunch mini was based on the torso from the Nurgle Lord Clampack. The Spider Legs are from the Gigantic Spider, and the Head, Spear, and Shield are from the Hero from that kit. Grom is mounted on a Howdah made from the Arachnarok Kit. The two goblins are my interpretation of Nibblit. The first is webbed to the howdah but still waving his Lucky Banner (representing the 6+ save.) The second is the rather rude fellow standing on the base (representing his two attacks.) The base is made from Battle for Skull Pass Spider Bases, cut up and scattered about, Leaves from the tree kit, and Spiders and the branch from the Arachnarok kit.
