Trollblood Trollkin Unit

The Dhunian knot is an old tradition of trollkin shamans banding together to combine their mystical power. In battle, they call upon Dhunia to heal wounds and manipulate the threads of fate. They can bring a dire troll back from the edge of a rampage or even magically compel others’ beasts to rise up against their masters. Even hopeless battles may prove favorable under the guidance of a knot.

Thoughts on Dhunian Knot[edit]

Dhunian Knot in a nutshell[edit]

The Dhunian Knot is a support unit providing frenzy management (although not actually Fury management) and rerolls to help you hit harder. As models go they are support that don't actually do work themselves. One reroll is worth effectively +2 to hit.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • They don't actually do work themselves.
  • The more you have that doesn't kill the more work everything else has to do.
  • They might prevent frenzies but they don't get rid of any Fury for you. So they don't solve the root problem.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • Go crit-fishing with them.
