AoS 2 - Gloomspite Gitz Discussion

It would be a good idea to get one.  I have the two madcap right now  but I get what u mean it would be an invaluable piece playing mid field with all the rest of the slow stuff.

It's more that in a straight comparison the Fungoid is just better. Doing a quick comparision

  • 10 points more
  • Madcap can use Madcap artefacts
  • Both have the same stats
  • Both have mediocre spells
  • Both get access to Moonclan Lore
  • Both can use a Mushroom once per game for a second spell
  • Fungoid Mushroom doesn't do d3 mortals to it on a double
  • Fungoid has a 4++ after save
  • Fungoid has a 4+ to gain a cp each turn
  • Fungoid has a better set of melee attacks

So for 10 points you get a massive amount of benefits at the cost of 1 negative. You will almost never cast Night Shroud anyway because the Lore spells are so good, end result is that if you have the 10 points then use them to upgrade a madcap to a fungoid.

Since you are so low drops would you want to choose to go first or to go second?

I have a similar collection, and am also building a 1k list. I am thinking of :

Loonboss on mangler squig, Loonboss on cave squig, fungoid shaman

12 squig herd, 10 hoppers, 10 bounders (maybe 5 and 5).

Comes in at 1k exactly. Mollog doesn’t really fit here, but I am in two minds about whether Zarbag’s gits is a bargain for a cheap unit (3 units!) with a wizard and a bit of utility, or just a waste of points.

For his command ability. Extra move is great on hoppers/bounders.

Thanks.

One or the other. A unit of 40 can have both, but only 1 in every 20.

Hi all,

new member of destruction here, trying to do a beginner list of gloomspite for 1k pnt.

My initial idea was this:

Skragrott, The loonking

Loonsboss

Webspinner shaman on Arachnarok spider

20 shootas

40 stabbas

I really love the Arachnarok spider model and I want at least one (if not two) in my next 2k list, but I've seen on the gw site that the big fellow spider is out of stock right now, anyone know how much time it wil take to be available again (I also see that even the DoK chariot is out of stock for at least one month now, maybe even more, and this make me think that for the spider I'll have to wait even more).

Thank you for any suggestion.

 

Ps: sorry for my english, I'm italian

I honestly think Zarbag doesn't come into use until a 2k army. He is a hefty point sink for a fairly squishy wizard. Maybe look into a second fungoid? (Do the CP abilities stack?) or a couple madcap to spread the magic love around the field. Squig lure and hand of mork would really help with the list.

 

Also, don't forget scuttletide if you can afford it pointwise. Its a super good blocking spell for its cost.

I know that you have probably all seen these but if not, there are just 180 glorious Moon & Shroom dice left from this limited batch... Get some now before it's too late 😁

Richie from Lets Play came 3rd at BOBO with something like this. It's probably not exactly because my recollection of the list is more broad strokes rather than specific.

Ritchies list was different to that. You are kinda on the mark but also wayyy off.

Let me post the magic list I was talking about and then post the list you attempted to show our new friend. 

Both lists are magic heavy and strong but subtlety different.

Obviously the difference is the hammer unit in each. The rockguts for the first. And for the second the stabbas themselves are their own hammer with buffs and MW output.
