    You can always find some of the old metal Night Goblin Netters to match with your metal Gitmob.

    So he is a perfect Troggboss. A little shorter, but about the same.

    Greenskin start collecting gone

    Yeah, I was expecting Gitmob and Greenskinz were going to leave. Apart from the SC box from the first round of AoS SC boxes, they were never promoted or touched. Heck, the only bit of lore I can remember containing 'Greenskinz' was a single story from Malign Portents that had a tribe of Greenskinz bullying a tribe of Gobbos. It will be odd to have no baseline Greenskins now though; We have various Grots, Beefy Savage Orruks, and even Beefier armored Orruks. No normal lads to compare the bigger and tougher Bonesplittaz and Ironjawz to. I hope the Boar Riders and basic Boyz get rolled into Ironjawz so Ironjawz gets some more options, those boars had a good sculpt.. On the other hand, I think Dispossessed and Gutbusters have a good chance to stick around because they have been rebased recently, unlike Gitmob and Greenskinz. They also regularly appear in the lore and the Hammerhal Herald.

    Same, I am going for a mixed contingent. Grots, Squig Cavalry, and a few Troggs. No spiders because I don’t want to spread my army too thin between the sub-factions. That Dankhold model is beautiful, I just finished building him and he seems great for morale. does anyone have an idea of what to use a spare Fanatic for? I had 6 old plastic ones, but now that squads are size 5 I have one loner. Save him for a rainy day?

    Wait, Troggoths are only battleline if your general is a Dankhold Troggboss. At the same time, Skragrott can only get bonus command points and use his command ability if he is the general. Otherwise he is just a good and expensive wizard. Wouldn't it be better just to take 2 madcap/fungoid shamans in his place if he isn't the general? You are paying all those points for his command ability and free CPs.

    He is a fair bit bigger. Squig Hoppers are on 32mm bases while according to the FAQ the Giant Cave Squig Loonboss is on a 50mm. Hoppers ride normal Squigs, loonbosses ride Giant Squigs.

    How tall is the Dankhold Troggboss? I have a Throgg that I know isn't big enough, so I want to do a big decorative base to make up the height and width.

    Hey lads, remember that Gitmob shaman that was rebranded to Madcap? He has sold out, and is now listed as "No Longer Available," unlike all the other sold out Gloomspite models who are listed as "Temporarily Out of Stock." He is with Gork and Mork now, rest in piece topknot shaman...

    Accidental double post, my bad.

    It has that one Night Goblin miscasting and exploding with magic, the banner guy, and the Squig Boss. All of them look great. Personally I feel the banner is too large for that grot, I would probably cut the pole, turn it into a staff, and make him another shaman. Save that cool banner for some terrain. I love the Squig Boss too, but that spear looks flimsy and I would be afraid to break it. I would replace that with the new Boingrot lance and maybe try to fit a Boingrot helmet in the hood. Make him look armored and dead killy. Then again, they are sold out at the moment. ☺️

    Don’t know exact size, but the Forgeworld one looks a fair bit bigger than a normal Squig Hopper if that is what you are looking at. Official base size from the FAQ is 50mm. If you don’t mind it not being a Giant Squig, one conversion possibility would be two normal squigs pulling a small ramshackle chariot with the Loonboss on it.

    Hello lads, I just got my Squig Hopper/Knight box and plan to build them as Knights. Not asking about tactics or anything but... What are some good Grot Knightly order names? Orda of da pointy stick? Knights of da Bad Moon? Defendas of da Eight Peaks? Maybe someone good with puns can think of one. Edit: Also these spare sword arms from the Hopper half seem like they would be great to add diversity to mobs of Stabbas with Stabbas. Or use the spare knight heads and Hopper weapons to convert Blood Bowl Gobbos into foot knights!

    Tokens are super helpful, especially with all the buffing and debuffing spells we have.

    Dwarven deitrus among troggoths

    If we could get some new Dwarf Rangers in the same style as their Total War models I would die. That would be my one wish out of a release.
  15. No offense, but the list you brought doesn't have any synergy between the units. I don't know much about Orruks, so I will comment on the grots. Minimum size squads of melee Grots die quickly to morale and and enemy fire. You want to aim for squads of 40-60 grots, especially if they have spears. Larger mobs allow you to take more nets (fantastic) and one of each banner. There was also no Gobbo Warboss to buff them up. The large blobs also act as an anvil for heavy hitting units like Squigs to come in to do damage. Arrow grots before Gloomspite book were kind of garbage, especially in 20 (5+ to hit, 5+ to wound, a squad of 60 would only get 6 hits before armor saves). Now they are more usable, not great, but more usable with their buff in large numbers (4+ to hit). Gargants are kind of average, I don't know what to say about them. Destruction is a horde army allegiance except for BCR and Ironjawz. You need big monster units to be effective. Meet their 40 Skeletons with 60 Grots.
