Minion Farrow Unit

Well versed in the mystic arts of butchery, farrow bone grinders seek out choice organs and marrow-filled bones from slain warbeasts in order to harness the mystical power lingering within. These parts are combined with blood, bile, and lymph to create powders, unguents, and talismans able to empower farrow warlocks toward victory on the battlefield.

Thoughts on Farrow Bone Grinders[edit]

Farrow Bone Grinders in a nutshell[edit]

Farrow Bone Grinders are an interesting unit - a cheap unit with the cost of jammers that are designed to hurt warbeasts (and are conscripts against everything else).

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • Paingiver Task Master - no knockdown tough on conscripts is just plain obnoxious to deal with - and the Task Master's STR buff means that charging bone grinders can do significant damage to a warbeast.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • Small units are often not worth buffing
  • When not against warbeasts the Bone Grinders show why they are so cheap

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • Know your metagame
  • They are cheap enough you shouldn't sweat if some die.

Comparison to Mk2[edit]

They are effectively an entirely different unit.
