AoS 2 - Sons of Behemat Discussion

It will be great if the fireball is the objective. Think about it, if a gargant move to 1' or less of an objective, he can grab it. A gargant only can have one objective at the same time.

 

It will be a cool and unique rule.

actually that could be cool, in order to score points you have to kill the gargant and get the objective back.

You know what I'd like to see?  I'm not sure if we've talked about this before, but I'd like to see the model-removing ability "Stuff 'em in me bag" combined with a kind of ranged attack.  Like, if it hits and kills the model, the giant can throw the hapless victim at something else.  It'd be pretty cool, but I'm not sure if we'd actually see it.  I kinda think that the Gatecrusher will have it, or something similar, if the Gatecrusher is a living War Engine.  I'm also of the opinion that the Kraken-chewer is going to be more of a straight-up monster, and that net of stuff is a weapon with a large number of attacks.  And, just to round things off, I'd guess that the Warstomper is the closest to a hero option in the list, if not out-right a hero option with a command ability and everything.

You mean like the "Pick up and throw" ability the Giant had back in the old Fantasy days.

Well, I haven't been around for all that long, but yes.

Well, they,ve used it before so there's a chance they'll use it again.  Plenty of abilities have made the transition in slightly altered form.  I just hope it won't be a long wait to find out.

I love the news that these new big guys can go into any army.  I painted up this guy as proxy for my FEC army and now I can not wait to paint one of the big guys up like an insane cannibal "knight". Should be an awesome time.

I think it might have been 30k that had some sort of rule about hurling things where the strength of the hurled model was somehow linked to their toughness... Can't remember what exactly it was but it'd be a nice touch if this attack's power was tied to the model's wounds or armour save or something. Launching a stormcast like a shot putt should be a scarier notion than hurling a gobbo.

And agreed about the Warstomper, particularly as they have less of an obvious shtick than the other two. I can see something being said about them being "the most warlike of their kind and natural leaders, as evinced by the tusks or horns worn on their back like a crown".

Sad to think that the Stormcast Podcast on the Sons has also definitely been delayed. I really hope Phil Kelly is on for that one as he was the Ossiarch Bonereapers.

My initial guess is there will probably be a hero version, or a way to give the hero keyword, to any of the Mega-Gargant types.  As for roles, my initial suspicion is that the Gate-Crusher will be geared for high damage vs single targets, the War-Stomper will have rules for fighting horde units (stomps and jump up & down attacks), and the Kraken-Eater will be the "weird" one that has more utility type abilities. 

I think they will probably have a base-line shared weapon profile and then each gets specific additional attacks.  Most likely there will be a shared "swing with club" style attack - since every one of these models is wielding some sort of club/flail.  When the Giants had randomized attacks in Warhammer Fantasy the "Swing with Club" attack was the most common result and it was one of the few attacks that was shared across both the small & big target attack tables.  I also still predict that we will see a number of the old giant random attacks return on the various Mega Gargants as either weapons on the profile or special abilities.

I think that the Kraken Eater is also going to be able to shoot the cannon in it's club as it's ranged attack, being a ranged-ish heavy hitter.

Itll be interesting to see if the Cannon is used in a traditional sense.

Ha I was gonna post it but guess I’m too late! There’s nothing special to it except for the awesome Gargants fighting Stormcasts. Although I don’t see the Kraken-eater holding his bag...

Yeah I was thinking that.  A Siege of Excelsis got a cheeky mention in the Orruk Warclans Batteltome too.

But mainly because Gordrak is planning to tear it down with that skull he got for his battering ram. So would be quite the plot twist if after all that trouble getting a godbeast head, a Gargant shows up and just knocks it down. Talk about stealing someones thunder 😂

Haha true, I hope that he does use the Battering Ram and as the Mega Gargants work in any Faction, there is simply a few tied to the Waaagh if not a whole army of them!!

I really hope the net can be used as a Ranged weapon or as a literal net and catch enemies.

the new art shows the warstomper without the jacked-up left eye. does this mean the kit comes with more than 3 head options?

A Faction of Gargants will be from every one of the Realms though their 'Origin' Realm is said to be Ghyran from whence Behemat came.

The Aleguzzler Gargant was removed from the Gloomspite Gitz sub-section at the Games Workshop Store.
