Warscroll Review – Rogue Idol

Before I begin, I wanted to clarify that when I discuss anything that involves a dice roll then I will refer to the average dice roll. For example, an average run roll being 3-4″ (average of 3.5 on one die).

This does mean that depending on how lucky your dice rolls are you can achieve more or less than the amount specified. But to keep it simple and for comparison purposes we will always refer to the average.

Army Role

Possibly one of the most loved units in the Orruk factions. The Rogue Idol looks great as a model and hits like a tonne of bricks on the tabletop. Averaging out at roughly 12.6 on its damage output per turn (15.8 when it charges), plus a 50% chance of doing a mortal wound to each unit within 3″ at the end of the combat phase, it’s hard overlook in a fight. Then even if he is killed by your opponent he still has another 50% chance to do an additional D3 mortal wounds to every unit within 3″ when he’s slain (Ok, that includes yours too, but even so)!

His other benefit is giving nearby friendly casters +1 on their casting roll. This is particularly good for models like Gobsprakk The “That’s right, there’s no bonus to casting!” Mouth of Mork. Your Swampcalla Shamans won’t benefit as much because most of the time you’ll be using them to get poison on nearby units.

He also adds +1 to the Bravery of nearby Orruk units which is nothing to be sniffed at.

He can benefit from the Kruleboyz Command Trait Supa Sneaky meaning he’ll be in your enemies lines in no time of you wanted him there. He can also benefit from the Warchanter’s +1 damage making him particularly tough in Ironjawz and Big Waaagh armies.

Where he’ll really shine is inside Bonesplitterz, Ironjawz and Big Waaagh! armies. If you include him in a Bonesplitterz army you can place him near a Wardokk who can either heal him D3 wounds each turn or give him +1 to his save. Don’t forget that as the Rogue Idol has the Bonesplitterz keyword he can also benefit from exploding 6’s vastly improving his damage output. Similar effects can be done with Ironjawz via the Warchanter as well.

However, I’m going to be controversial here and say that he’s not quite worth his points inside Kruleboyz. In fact if you have 430 points sitting around, you may be better off buying two Breaka-Boss on Mirebrute Troggoth instead as combined they’ll have much more damage output than the Rogue Idol and will be able to cause many more mortal wounds.

Warscroll Review – Murknob with Belcha-Banna

Before I begin, I wanted to clarify that when I discuss anything that involves a dice roll then I will refer to the average dice roll. For example, an average run roll being 3-4″ (average of 3.5 on one die).

This does mean that depending on how lucky your dice rolls are you can achieve more or less than the amount specified. But to keep it simple and for comparison purposes we will always refer to the average.

Basic Info

Murknob with Belcha-banna
Grand AllianceDestruction
BattletomeOrruk Warclans
SubfactionKruleboyz
Cost95 Points

Army Role

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Murknob with Belcha-banna ever used in a competitive list. That’s not to say you shouldn’t, as the cheapest unit the Kruleboyz have available at 95 points he does have the benefit of giving all units within 12″ a 5+ ward save against the effects of spells and endless spells. That’s nothing to be sniffed at. On average it will nullify the effects of one spell in three.

You could pop him next to your big beautiful beasties such as the Snatchaboss on Sludgeraker, who in turn will have a few other units around him to benefit from his Sludgeraker Venom. This means you’ll have a bubble of units benefitting from the Murknob’s ward. This ability only protects Kruleboyz Orruk units, so discounts him as an ally and really limits his use in Big Waaagh!

He’s okaaay in combat with 3 3+/3+ attacks on -1 rend and 2 damage a piece. Meaning on average he should force your opponent into making one save. You’ll find he also causes the occasional mortal wounds through Venom-encrusted Weapons (50% chance of doing 2 mortal wounds in combat), plus his Breath of the Mire-Drakes ability should see him cause another mortal wound on top of the all this.

Should you use him? I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy him personally, but he’s certainly an option that should protect a unit 1/3rd of the time and could frustrate magic heavy armies.

Edit: As someone has mentioned (apologies I can’t find your comment again to mention your name), you could turn this fella into a cheap wizard with Arcane Tome as well.

At the end of your opponent’s first movement phase, they must set up that unit on the battlefield wholly within their territory and more than 9″ away from all enemy units. This Dirty Trick cannot be picked if the battleplan has the ‘No Reserves’ rule (for example Tooth and Nail). Covered in Mud: After some ‘hard finkin’, you command a group of warriors to slather themselves in muck and sneak up on the unwitting enemy. Roll 3 dice.

Army Role

This fella is your Snatchaboss on Sludgeraker who costs an additional 5 points. As a named character you’ll lose the ability to give him command traits or his mount Mount Traits, but gain an added extras of being able to get you an additional triumph during the game. An expert Snatch and Grab ability, 1 extra wound and his Noisome Bite does D3+4 instead of D3+3.

To take Skummdrekk, you’re kind of forced to take a unit of Hobgrot Slittaz (I say forced, but we all know the Hobgrots are the mightiest unit in Age of Sigmar). These Hobgrot units get assigned as the ‘Kountin’ Krew‘. Another friendly unit will be assigned as the ‘Bet‘.

If the ‘Bet‘ is the first unit to be destroyed from your army in the battle you gain an additional Triumph, but this Triumph can only be use on Swampboss Skumdrekk or the Hobgrot Slittaz unit designated as the ‘Kountin’Krew‘.

As you can tell it’s an ok ability, but you’re limited in the reward which is a bit…. nah in my eyes. For the five points expense and at the cost of losing those Command Trait abilities I’d rather take the standard Snatchaboss on Sludgeraker Beast.

Swampboss Skumdrekk has an Expert Snatch and Grab ability which allows him to remove a model with 7 or less wounds if he rolls equal to or more than their wound value on 2D6. This is great as you have a higher chance that with the standard Snatchaboss to remove a hero character on foot, or even wiping a chunk of a unit out through coherency.

Other than that he does everything your Snatchaboss will do, so for that I would look at my Warscroll review on him here.

Warscroll Review – Snatchaboss on Sludgeraker Beast

Before I begin, I wanted to clarify that when I discuss anything that involves a dice roll then I will refer to the average dice roll. For example, an average run roll being 3-4″ (average of 3.5 on one die).

This does mean that depending on how lucky your dice rolls are you can achieve more or less than the amount specified. But to keep it simple and for comparison purposes we will always refer to the average.

Army Role

This chap appears in almost every tournament army, sometimes twice! With a high damage output that rivals the Breaka-Boss and buffs which compliment the Kruleboyz Venom-encrusted Weapons it’s hard to ignore. Yes, he’s expensive but the ability to give nearby units the ability to add 1 to the damage of their Venom-encrusted Weapons is huge. For example a unit of 10 Gutrippaz on average causes 3.5 mortal wounds, put them near a Sludgeraker and this increases to 7! That’s just a unit of 10…

He’s fairly squishy, so you’ll want to protect him with screens and the like. A common practice is to give him the artefact Mork’s Eye Pebble, which gives him and all units within 12″ a 5+ ward save in a single phase. That’s great for making a combat swing in your favour. He’s often made a General too as he’s the easiest to protect, plus when he does make it into combat he can hit hard.

He’s good against Alpha strike armies as you can give him the Smelly ‘Un mount trait, meaning your opponent will be -1 to hit him in combat when they charge.

Another reason to make him your General is that he will be surrounded by your troops so they benefit from the afore mentioned Sludgeraker poison, additionally because they’ll all be close by you can call the Kruleboyz Waagh meaning your General and two units close by can fight one after the other without the enemy interrupting you.

Personally, I think he’s the first choice for the General before any of the other Kruleboyz options. Yes he’s expensive, but the benefits outweigh this cost.

This ability has no effect on attacks made by a mount unless noted otherwise.

Subtract 1 from wound rolls for attacks made by enemy units in the first battle round. Lethal Surprise: Your scouts have laid cunningly disguised pitfall traps out in no man’s land. Roll 3 dice. For each 4+, you can pick 1 different terrain feature or different objective that is not wholly within enemy territory and secretly note it down. The first time any enemy unit finishes a move within 1″ of that terrain feature or objective, roll a dice. On a 2+, that unit suffers D6 mortal wounds. Disappearin’ Act: You have sent out your grots to lure a band of enemy warriors into the swamp mists until they become utterly lost. Roll 3 dice. For each 4+, you can pick 1 different enemy unit on the battlefield that has not been reinforced. Then, roll a dice for each unit you picked. If the roll is greater than that unit’s Wounds characteristic, your opponent must remove that unit from the battlefield and set it up as a reserve unit. At the end of your opponent’s first movement phase, they must set up that unit on the battlefield wholly within their territory and more than 9″ away from all enemy units. This Dirty Trick cannot be picked if the battleplan has the ‘No Reserves’ rule (for example Tooth and Nail). Covered in Mud: After some ‘hard finkin’, you command a group of warriors to slather themselves in muck and sneak up on the unwitting enemy. Roll 3 dice. For each 4+, pick 1 friendly unit that is not a HERO or MONSTER. While that unit is in cover, it is not visible to enemy units.
KillabossAll Part of Da PlanIf a friendly KRULEBOYZ unit fails a battleshock test within 3″ of any friendly units with this ability, only 1 model from that unit will flee.

Swampcalla Shaman and Pot-grotPoisons and ElixirsAt the start of your hero phase, if this unit is more than 3″ from all enemy units, instead of attempting to dispel an endless spell or cast any spells with this unit in that phase, you can say that it is brewing either a poison or an elixir. If you do so, pick 1 friendly KRULEBOYZ ORRUK unit wholly within 12″ of this unit, more than 3″ from all enemy units and that has at least 1 model within 3″ of this unit to be given that poison or elixir. A unit that has been given a poison or elixir cannot be given another poison or elixir in the same hero phase. If that unit is given a poison, until your next hero phase, when you use the Venom-encrusted Weapons battle trait for that unit, mortal wounds are caused on an unmodified hit roll of 5+ instead of 6. If that unit is given an elixir, add 1 to save rolls for attacks that target that unit until your next hero phase.
Swampcalla Shaman and Pot-grot / Gobsprakk, the Mouth of MorkSummon Boggy MistSummon Boggy Mist is a spell that has a casting value of 7.

Army Role

The Killaboss on Corpse-rippa Vulcha struggles to find his place in an army where you have high damage output leaders (Breaka-boss on Mirebrute Troggoth) and leaders who can give good buffs to your army (Snatchaboss on Sludgeraker Beast). Even when you look at cheaper units, the Killaboss on Great Gnashtoof has a similar output, is almost as quick and is cheaper to boot.

That being said he does have the Commanding View ability which will allow you to use the same command ability twice in a phase (as long as they’re used by two separate heroes). This means you can use two unleash hells or two all put defense if you need them. His movement and flying means late game he can jump on objectives or hunt down a key target. He’s not a combat piece, but like any sneaky commander jump in when the enemy is already injured.

Army Role

This model is a fantastic damage dealer! Possibly on of the best that Kruleboyz have available to them. On average using the Breaka-harness ability it’ll kick out 14 damage and 2 mortal wounds! Admittedly it’ll have to suffer two wounds to do that, but in your hero phase you have a 50% chance of healing D3 wounds back.

You could also give him the Arcane Tome and Flaming Weapon combo to increase his damage by 1 on his iron-bound clubs. This’ll up his average damage to 17.2 plus 2 mortal wounds.

Why not have a Marshcrawla Sloggoth tailing a pair of these bad boys as well? That’ll give them +1 to their hit rolls. This’ll mean a vanilla Mirebrute will increase its damage output to an average of 21.8 +2 mortals!

As you have to cause damage to yourself to increase its damage output, I wouldn’t personally recommend it as your General. I’m not saying you shouldn’t, just personally I prefer not taking wounds off my General when I don’t have to. Especially as you want this guy in the mix at the front.

With movement 5″ how are you going to do that? Well this is where your General with his Supa Sneaky command trait comes in handy. This’ll allow him to place a model anywhere on the table more than 9″ away from an enemy. Plus, that unit can still move and charge in the same turn, hello Mirebrute missile! They’re great for taking the opponent unawares using this tactic, and taking that juicy unit that you’d struggle to get near otherwise.

This unit is so good that I’ve seen competitive lists at tournaments run up to four of the blighters in a single list!

As this unit has the Troggoth keyword it’ll also be a great ally for any Troggoth Gloomspite Git players out there.

Kruleboyz Battle TraitsDirty TricksAfter the players have received their starting command points but before the start of the first turn, you can pick 1 of the following Dirty Tricks to employ during the battle: Noisy Racket: On the eve of battle, you make sure the enemy receives no respite as your war drums and rattle-skulls ring out into the night. Subtract 1 from wound rolls for attacks made by enemy units in the first battle round. Lethal Surprise: Your scouts have laid cunningly disguised pitfall traps out in no man’s land. Roll 3 dice. For each 4+, you can pick 1 different terrain feature or different objective that is not wholly within enemy territory and secretly note it down. The first time any enemy unit finishes a move within 1″ of that terrain feature or objective, roll a dice. On a 2+, that unit suffers D6 mortal wounds. Disappearin’ Act: You have sent out your grots to lure a band of enemy warriors into the swamp mists until they become utterly lost. Roll 3 dice. For each 4+, you can pick 1 different enemy unit on the battlefield that has not been reinforced. Then, roll a dice for each unit you picked. If the roll is greater than that unit’s Wounds characteristic, your opponent must remove that unit from the battlefield and set it up as a reserve unit. At the end of your opponent’s first movement phase, they must set up that unit on the battlefield wholly within their territory and more than 9″ away from all enemy units. This Dirty Trick cannot be picked if the battleplan has the ‘No Reserves’ rule (for example Tooth and Nail). Covered in Mud: After some ‘hard finkin’, you command a group of warriors to slather themselves in muck and sneak up on the unwitting enemy. Roll 3 dice. For each 4+, pick 1 friendly unit that is not a HERO or MONSTER. While that unit is in cover, it is not visible to enemy units.
Murknob with Belcha-bannaPower of KragnosWhen a friendly KRULEBOYZ ORRUK unit wholly within 12″ of this unit is affected by a spell or the abilities of an endless spell, you can roll a dice. On a 5+, ignore the effect of that spell or the effects of that endless spell’s abilities on that unit.
Swampcalla Shaman and Pot-grotPoisons and ElixirsAt the start of your hero phase, if this unit is more than 3″ from all enemy units, instead of attempting to dispel an endless spell or cast any spells with this unit in that phase, you can say that it is brewing either a poison or an elixir. If you do so, pick 1 friendly KRULEBOYZ ORRUK unit wholly within 12″ of this unit, more than 3″ from all enemy units and that has at least 1 model within 3″ of this unit to be given that poison or elixir. A unit that has been given a poison or elixir cannot be given another poison or elixir in the same hero phase. If that unit is given a poison, until your next hero phase, when you use the Venom-encrusted Weapons battle trait for that unit, mortal wounds are caused on an unmodified hit roll of 5+ instead of 6. If that unit is given an elixir, add 1 to save rolls for attacks that target that unit until your next hero phase.
Swampcalla Shaman and Pot-grot / Gobsprakk, the Mouth of MorkSummon Boggy MistSummon Boggy Mist is a spell that has a casting value of 7. If successfully cast, until your next hero phase, add 1 to charge rolls for friendly KRULEBOYZ ORRUK units on the battlefield and subtract 1 from charge rolls for other units on the battlefield.
Gobsprakk, the Mouth of MorkMouth of MorkIf this unit issues the Redeploy command to a KRULEBOYZ unit, you can re-roll the dice that determines the distance the unit that receives the command can move. If this unit issues the Unleash Hell command to a KRULEBOYZ unit, you do not have to subtract 1 from the hit rolls for the attacks made by the unit that receives the command.
Snatchaboss on Sludgeraker Beast Swampboss Skumdrekk Sludgeraker VenomAdd 1 to the number of mortal wounds caused by the Venom-encrusted Weapons battle trait if the unmodified hit roll was 6 and the attacking unit is wholly within 12″ of any friendly units with this ability.
Kragnos, the End of EmpiresThe End of EmpiresIf a friendly DESTRUCTION unit is wholly within 12″ of this unit, you can attempt a charge with that unit if it is within 18″ of an enemy unit instead of 12″. In addition, when making a charge roll for a friendly DESTRUCTION unit wholly within 12″ of this unit, roll 3D6 instead of 2D6.
Rogue IdolLivin’ IdolAdd 1 to casting rolls for friendly ORRUK WIZARDS while they are within 6″ of any friendly models with this ability. In addition, add 1 to the Bravery characteristic of friendly ORRUK units while they are wholly within 18″ of any friendly models with this ability.

Missile Attacks

This unit has no missile attacks.

Melee Attacks

This model has weapon profiles for the boss and for his mount. Bear in mind however that only the boss will benefit from the venom-encrusted weapons. These stats may not look great on first glance bit remember this unit has the Breaka-harness which if you use it, your Mirebrute will suffer D3 mortal wounds. But, for each of those mortal wounds you’ll gain a further two attacks with its Iron-bound clubs. On average this should give you an additional 4 attacks!

Resilience

With 12 wounds and a 4+ save this model is surprisingly tough. It’ll need at least 24 damage from zero rend weapons allocated to it BEFORE any saves on order to have a chance of destroying this in a single turn. On top of that add in its Regeneration ability where it has a 50% chance of healing D3 wounds each of your hero phases…
