Croak Raiders

Minion Croak Unit

Coordinated groups of skilled warriors, croak raiders employ a powerful two-pronged attack. Working in pairs, one raider lobs hollowed gourds to soak an enemy with a highly flammable liquid, and then another launches a flaming projectile from an atlatl to ignite the enemy in a pyre of flame. This devastating combination has allowed them to eradicate even more numerous and technologically advanced foes.

Thoughts on Croak Raiders[edit]

Croak Raiders in a nutshell[edit]

Croak Raiders are a strong unit of ranged skirmishers, able to shoot effectively and to advance deploy and with a decent melee game.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • They die to blast damage.
  • They need to bunch up to do well in melee
  • They struggle against Armour

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • Expect skirmishers, not the Mk2 killers
  • Try out the frogs with Dominar Rasheth: Move up the raiders to do their thing, but position one frog next to enemy models. Rasheth then casts Breath of Corruption, targeting the frog in the back (so he hits on 3+). The frog cares not as it is immune to Corrosion spells, but the spell is an AOE and will affect close models. The AOE even stays for a round, causing enemy to take additional damage or move away and take a free strikes from the frog.



  • Although the box they come in labels them a "Minion Gatorman Unit" this is a holdover from Mk2. Croaks are their own thing.
