Outcast Trolls - Hoarluk Doomshaper

Okay its true, I am a sheep sometimes. The idea however is sound. In the spirit of CerealJon and I's upcoming wednesday night battle I will be fielding some of the biggest outcasts of the outcast army. Visit the Trollblood forums at Privateer Press you will almost immediately find out a few things most Troll players just plain don't like. Here are some of the highlights.

Hoarluk Doomshaper
Not the epic one, but the regular old codger himself. Until recently the only Fury 7 caster in the Trollblood arsenal, full of potential he fails miserably. Simply stated his very very low Def and Arm are the reason. And even though his epic version has the same stats, the regular version of him is not nearly as offense minded as his epic self. Troll buffage can get Doomy's armor up pretty high, but it takes alot of points and work and situation to get it there making it difficult to do and unreliable to pull off.
Bad Bad, terribad, okay the 7 fury is nice.
FEAT - Dhunia's Rage
You cast a spell or use focus/fury, you take damage.
Actually a pretty danged good weapon, one free upkeep per turn AND hits harder for every focus on it. Problem is if rDoomy is in melee he is probably dead already.
Scroll of the Will of Balasar - Make enemy beasts that frenzy attack what you want them to.
Calming Effect - Friendly Beasts don't hurt the good guys when they Frenzy.
Tough - Well duh! He is Troll therefore he is tough.
Accursed - Damage with this one and they have to lose their movement or activation.
Fortune - Reroll missed attack rolls, or made attack rolls.
Dissolution - Enemy upkeep spells begone AND your screwed for having one on you.
Rampager - Force a Threshold check on enemy beasts before they leech and have to check again.
Vexation - Choose whether the model/unit hit activates first or last.
He looks good, he really does, but he dies soooooo easy.

Coming soon... Trollkin Thumper Crew.

  2. I think there is a 90% chance that when you field those models, the table will simply explode/flip itself over.

    But if you win...you will gain immortality.

  3. I have heard that about fielding them all at once, so I left out the Chronicler thinking he would be the final straw.

  4. Lol, I read the post and was thinking "where's the chronicler?" Aside from the thumper he's nigh useless. I worry about a black hole forming from the use of so much "fail." Then again, with both factions using the worst of the worst you'll probably have a good time lol.


  5. Dude...Your Fail and my Sunburst on the same table. It could cause a rip in space time.

  6. We're gonna need photos for this epic battle and report.

  7. I caught you a delicious bass, er I mean I did a little photochop work on the amon picture for ya.

  8. If the game table forms an event horizon, remember to run away faster than the speed of light until you escape the Schwarzschild radius...so bring, like a bike or a scooter or something.

  9. Ray...were you aware that we live 20 south of where Napoleon Dynamite was filmed?

  10. True Story, I have purchased gas and candy at that very gas station many a time. Also, I believe that gas station is the biggest seller of Idaho lottery tickets in the whole state of Idaho, you know because it is soo close to Utah and Utah doesn't have a lottery.

  11. Doesn't that gas station have a huge sign on it that says Welcome to La Tienda Home of the Utah Lottery. Which for those that don't know makes it interesting because there is no Utah Lottery.

  12. You know, if you'd wanted a Hoarluk pic, I could have made you one - I still have the PSD template, after all ;)

    There are six different Wanted posters from it on Lost Hemisphere so far, and a couple more to come. :)

  13. Well, I was content with borrowing your Amon one, but I think I will ask you for help with my next one. Thank you.
