Gatorman Bokor & Bog Trog Swamp Shamblers

From Battle College
Jump to: navigation, search

Minion Unit

Fearsome necromancers, gatorman bokors wield the very powers of life and death. Stalking among the war parties of the gatormen, bokors command the walking slave-corpses of bog trogs, using the cadavers in death with the same ruthlessness that first cost them their lives. Should any doubt the terrible power of the gatormen, they need only look upon the bokors and their undead minions.

    • Amphibious - This model treats shallow water as open terrain while advancing. While completely in shallow water, this model gains concealment and does not block line of sight.
    • Officer - This model is the unit commander even if the unit has a Leader model.

It can make one additional melee attack or boost one roll for each model removed. When this model would suffer damage, you can choose one or more models in this unit that are in this model’s command range to suffer any number of those damage points instead, divided as you choose. If you do, this model does not suffer that damage. A model cannot suffer more damage as a result of Death Magic than it has unmarked damage boxes.
    • Stir the Dead - When a living model is destroyed in this model’s command range, this model gains the destroyed model’s corpse token. At the end of your next Control Phase, remove all corpse tokens from this model and add one Grunt to this unit for each corpse token removed.

Thoughts on Gatorman Bokor & Bog Trog Swamp Shamblers[edit]

Gatorman Bokor & Bog Trog Swamp Shamblers in a nutshell[edit]

It's a zombie horde! Shamblers aren't great - but they are good enough to mess up the enemy and jam up charge lanes.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • Lots of infantry - lots of bodies for the mill
  • Sacral Vault - the Gator recycles the bodies, the Vault the souls. The vault also brings telemetry for more accurate Hand of Glories.
  • Paingiver Task Master - Extra hitting power is always useful - especially with this many troops. And tough shamblers are annoying.
  • Bog Trog Mist Speaker Veteran Leader really helps shamblers hit average targets.
  • Gatorman Witch Doctor Tough on Shamblers is just annoying. And they are great cheap targets for sacrificial strikes. However be aware that the Witch Doctor zombifying other units will deny you corpse tokens for Shamblers.
  • Wurmwood, Tree of Fate & Cassius the Oathkeeper - Similar to the Sacral Vault; you're already farming soul tokens, why not double up and farm corpse tokens too?
  • The Blindwater Congregation theme effectively makes them cheaper.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • Shamblers are terrible troops
  • The Bokor is a killable lynchpin.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • You're better to run and jam with them, than you are to burn your clock time making attacks with them.
