EDIT: after talking to Declan and others at Woehammer, they disagree that he can be included and believe this still needs clarification with the FAQ team at GW due to the below images from the Battletome.
A few days ago I asked whether Gordrakk could be included in a Kruleboyz or Savage Orruk list. The response was a resounding NO!
However, before asking everyone on Reddit, I also emailed GW to ask them. Today I had the response.
Well that certainly makes things interesting. Whether he’d be any good in a Kruleboyz or Savage Orruk list is another question….
I’ve been having a debate (mainly with myself – as everyone else is just plain disagreeing) recently about Gordrakk being included in a Kruleboyz or Savage Orruk list.
Hear me out!
I have two pieces of evidence at present that say he can.
1) AoS App
When I was playing with budding Kruleboyz lists on Saturday I toyed with the notion of including Chadnos. So, I selected the filter and made sure Warmasters were selected. Sure enough Kraggy appears, but, who else should I see but Gordrakk riding his cabbage! That’s strange I think, so for S&G’s I decide to put him down and fill out the rest of the list.
Army Faction: Orruk Warclans Army Type: Kruleboyz Subfaction: Big Yellers Grand Strategy: Hold the Line Triumph: Inspired
LEADERS Gordrakk (540) Swampcalla Shaman and Pot-grot (105)* – Spells: Da Black Pit Snatchaboss on Sludgeraker Beast (315)* – General – Command Traits: Supa Sneaky – Artefacts of Power: Eye-biter Ash
And to top it off once the list was complete I just checked the indicator at the bottom:
I know, before you say it. This list isn’t competitive. But I wanted to see if Gordrakk would be ok by the app. Weirdly however, when you attempt to build the same list on Warscroll Builder it’s not possible.
2) His Warwcroll
My second piece of evidence points to his Warscroll and specifically his Warmaster rule.
What’s interesting to me here is that the Warscroll says:
If this unit is included in an Orruk Warclans army….
Games Workshop Age of Sigmar App
Orruk Warclans, NOT Ironjawz. But just to be certain I checked the Warscroll out in the physical book. Yes, it says the same thing.
But I’m still on the fence as to whether this is a thing so I’ve emailed Games Workshop and just asked them directly. Hopefully they’ll get back to me later today.
But what do you think? Am I barking up the wrong tree?
