    I think a boss on squig to get the +3 to movement and some squig herds would fit in nicely with trolls. Gives you some models to hold objectives and screen your trolls from scary charges...yet still effective on their own. Havent done a full list yet...

    AoS2 - Dankhold Troggoth Discussion

    Finally played with my trolls in a small 750 point battle. Things i learned... Rock trolls and hordes dont mix...i think we know this but they need to get to armoured or big guys...hordes bring them down too easy and their armour piercing is wasted... Fellwater are appealing...i see why some go with them over rock trolls. I think both have their use but fellwayer feel easier to use. Trolls are fragile. Lots of points for few wounds and soft saves...the rockguts can get on a roll with the 5+ but still have to be wary of high attack opponents. I went offensive on my trollboss (mightyblow and ghyrestrike). Getting double turned got him killed as he didnt get to regenerate. I think I will try a little more defensive next time. I think he is best against a monster...they get weaker and he doesnt....and dishing out 9-12 wounds a turn ( i could have rolled better) he makes things die. Pure troll is hard...you dont hold objectives well and you arent as tough as you want them to be. That said, they were super fun and i think with some squig or goblin screens and some magic i will be able to do better. Also need to pick your battles....they are more finesse then they feel they should be.. Im stepping up to 1000 and the hag joins the army...looling forward to it...

    Thank you sir. Ive been using spiders up to this point so have gotten used to rolling dice for no reason for my bows. That said, i did for wounds to kill a treelord last game....so somethings those extra wounds add up...

    Another case where i have models painted so might as well try them out....your opinion is appreciated...

    I have one painted and he has been on my beasts of chaos list a few times (a painted old metal one rebased). I think for his points he does fine....so whiffs and some good games...just like lots of units for this points cost. Of course you get to whip the chaos one which is nice....

    And i thought you had crazy, strategic pland for those models...lol... Totally fair....ive been wanting to try a giant out as i have one painted...and think he might be a solid value for his potential...despite being unreliable...

    So i like a lot of thinga about this list but have some questions: What spells for your 2 casters? I assume hand of gork for one... What role do you see for mollog and the giant? It seems like some more goblins to recyle and hold objectives might be useful...of course id prefer the 2 big guys from a troll list perspective but wanted to ask the question. How about the shootas? Home objective holders? It seems the internet hates the shootas so interested in your take...i like the idea that my cheap obejective holding models can shoot...

    Thank you sir...thats some good context. I will be ready for March with 1000 points of trolls and hoping they are fun to play and give me a chance to win some games....

    Thank you. I agree....i dont have the models to take objectives and i so need to remove as many as i can as fast as i can. Ive been playing all spiders to this point and will enjoy something completely different....

    AoS2 - Dankhold Troggoth Discussion

    So i am in a slow grow league and we are up to 1000 points next month. I am going to run an 8 model troll list that was suggested on these forums for fun... Troggboss 3 rockguts 3 fellwater Troggoth Hag I was originally going to run the mighty blow command trait and Ghyrstrike on the boss to make him as killy as possible. As lossing models will be more killer for this list as i only have 8 models, i was wondering if i should go for a more defensive artefact. Just wondering what people think and how worried should I be about people killing my Hag too soon...

    AoS 2 - Clan Verminus / Skaven Discussion

    I like this list for the models and the need for 100 clan rats...balancing pretty big models with the footsloggers to hold the line and objectives. I might swap the cannon(s) and some of the cheaper heros for other guns...based on the models i have and not because they are more useful.

    Thank you...i appreciate your thoughts...i'm working on my trolls right now and may give this a go...no matter how it goes having only 8 models seems fun...

    Is this strong at 1000? I play fluffy mostly but i have a buddy who is pretty competitive and would like to have a chance against him...this feels fluffy and if its competitive even better...

    To be honest, im just happy to have a book to get all my rats back together again...i think the gloomspite treatment will now be the hope and dream for all armies...but a book is better than no book....

    AoS 2 - Spiderfang Grots Discussion

    Thank you sir. Very helpful. I think the scuttleboss will deminish usefulness as people figure out how scary he can be and how easily he dies. I also need to remember the spiders are light cavalry...i think that is a good perspective to have and not use them in the wrong way. I was thinking something similar for a list but would think 40 grots are better than 2 x 20.
