Minion Farrow Unit

The fierce and hardy warriors of the farrow are as difficult to bring down as the boars they resemble. Armed with primitive rifles scavenged from raids on human caravans, farrow brigands are the equals of many frontline soldiers. After surviving numerous engagements, farrow commandos have begun to imitate the battlefield tactics of more rigorously trained forces. Brandishing grenades and kukris as they infiltrate enemy lines, these cunning fighters offer farrow warlords the ability to quickly strike into the heart of the enemy.

Thoughts on Farrow Commandos[edit]

Farrow Commandos in a nutshell[edit]

A unit of advance deploying skirmishers to rival Croak Raiders.

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 commandos can do significant damage to a warbeast
  • Carver1 - Veteran Leader helps
  • In The Thornfall Alliance theme they get to Ambush.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • Relatively short threat range, about the same as regular infantry.
  • Inaccurate
  • It's hard to work out what they are actually supposed to be good at.
