Dire Troll Brawler
|Crucible Guard CID is now live (Edit)||
Dire Troll Brawlers go to battle wielding oversized flails made from stout iron chain and scavenged scrap metal. Bellowing primitive war cries, brawlers hurl themselves at any opponent, swinging these chains in sweeping, unpredictable arcs. What these trolls lack in intelligence they compensate for with raw delight in brutal combat and laying their opponents low.

- Flail (x2) - 2" reach, P+S 17 melee weapons

- Regeneration [d3] - This model may be forced to heal d3 damage boxes, once per activation. It can't run in the same activation.
- Snacking - When this model boxes a living model with a melee attack, it can choose to remove the boxed model from play. When it does this, this model can remove d3 damage points.
- Ornery - Cost 1

Dire Troll Brawler in a nutshell
A Diretroll mauler with two huge wrecking balls.
Combos & Synergies
Most likely will like any strength buff and the Mauler's animus.
Excellent enabler for Stone Scribe Chronicler.
Ragnor Skysplitter, the Runemaster's Pulverizer spell gives +2 strength and Beat Back.
- Note that Beat Back only triggers during your Combat Action so doesn't stack with the animus.
