Borka Kegslayer & Keg Carrier

Jump to: navigation, search

Trollblood Northkin Trollkin Warlock & Companion Pyg Solo

A one man bar brawl, the towering Borka always comes to battle accompanied by a pyg carrying a keg of booze. His army is held together by his raw charisma - it otherwise resembles a rolling drunken party, with Borka being the biggest and rowdiest drunk of all. Those who follow him have a great time in one continuous party combining his three activities - boozing, fighting, and rutting - at least until their luck runs out with any of those and they die. Also, he has a pimp fur collar and a giant codpiece, pretty daring mode of dress for a priest of Dhunia. How could you not love a guy like that?

Thoughts on Borka Kegslayer & Keg Carrier[edit]

Borka Kegslayer & Keg Carrier in a nutshell[edit]

Borka Kegslayer is everyone's favourite beer and pretzels warlock. Great fun theme and decent and straightforward to play. Charging in with his feat, and knocking everyone down with Mosh Pit while Stumbling Drunk makes him very hard to assassinate.

Thoughts on when and how to best use his feat & spells[edit]

Wind Wall protects him from going in, his feat helps his people go in faster, and Mosh Pit means you do more damage. Wind Wall makes a unit harder to hit.

Typical Army & Strategy[edit]


His main win condition is pure attrition. Charging in and smashing the enemy until they stop moving.



  • Rök, his personal warbeast is extremely hard hitting, comes with a damage buff, and with the bond is extremely hard to kill.
  • Slag Troll - if you are taking Rok, the Slag Troll is hard enough hitting to wreck warjacks.
  • Troll Axer - with Rush and hard hitting, the Axer builds on Borka's strenths.
  • Troll Bouncer - extremely tough and pretty hard hitting, the Bouncer is an effective warbeast.

Infantry - Borka tends to run high on the infantry

Drawbacks, Downsides, & Bad Match-Ups[edit]

Borka is a straightforward melee warlock who doesn't surprise people. He is however solid and fun.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • The Keg Bearer should be topping him up every turn.

Rules Clarifications[edit]

Rules Clarification : Magical Damage      (Edit)

  • The "Damage Type: Magical" is not inherited by "secondary" damage from a weapon such as arcs (Electro Leap) or hazards (Scather). (Infernal Ruling)
  • All spells have "Damage Type: Magical" (refer latest errata).
  • If a weapon/spell includes Magic Damage and another kind of elemental damage it can still damage Incorporeal models. They're not affected by the rule "if an attack does multiple types of damage and a model is immune to at least one it is immune to the entire attack.
    The phrase "immune to non-magical damage" should be intrepreted as "immune to damage that doesn't include Damage Type: Magical" (not as "has immunity to Corrosion and Electricity and Cold and etc.")

Rules Clarification : Warcaster or Warlock     (Edit)

  • Please refer to the Warcasters & Warlocks page for a recap of the warcaster rules, and the very few associated rules clarifications.

Rules Clarification : Pitch      (Edit)

  • If you Pitch on a charge attack, then the throw damage will be boosted (but not collateral damage).
  • Throw ( Edit ) - Refer to the Throw article for rules clarifications.

Rules Clarification : Cold - None yet. (Edit)
Rules Clarification : Tough - None yet. (Edit)

Rules Clarification : Unyielding      (Edit)

  • If you can't be "in melee" with your target (for instance an enemy Steamroller objective) then you can't get Unyielding.
  • If you become knocked down, stationary, or otherwise lose your melee range you lose Unyielding.
  • An enemy can engage you, without you engaging them (for instance they're in your back arc). In this case, you don't get Unyielding.
